Fiction Flirtations

It's always a challenge, turning the words of an expert into literary prose. So, with a nod to Lou Grossfeldt...

You make no sound. You are slow and deliberate. With experience, you come to understand you can never truly hide from them. After millennia here, they have the advantage. You’re a trespasser in their world. In time you learn their rules, and you comply. Hiding yourself is a mistake. Predators hide. Danger lurks unseen. So you stay in their view. When you are visible and non-threatening, you can progress. Day after day you repeat the process, until you become a forest fixture. That’s the plan.
