Just around that corner, the cat beast is waiting. If I step to the right as I turn the corner, it will miss me by inches. I turn the corner and hear the pounce of the beast. I step to the right. I stare in shock at my arm, now in the jaws of the cat beast. The pain hits like a bolt of lightning. As I hear the 2nd incoming attack from the cat beast, I think. Maybe this time I was supposed to get left. Just around that corner, the cat beast is waiting. If I step to the right as I turn the corner, it will miss me by inches. Wait. No. I should go left this time. How many times have I done this part? I should stick with my first instinct. As I turn the corner I step to the right.
