The arrow is latched into place ready to fire. It's pointed at the target. Now, all it needs is a little push, a little shove, a little nudge.

It's deadly and ready to go.

With the right shooter in place, the arrow will go gently and perfectly into place.

The arrow is fighting. It doesn't know it's supposed to go along with this.

It's loaded, but something's stopping it from being released.

"No," he says.

And Valentine's arrow walks away.
