“Of course I’ll help you. I am new to this place and it would not be very good or polite of me to refuse help. Though I am starting to wonder who is teaching who.” He added the last bit as a joke. “First let’s try drawing without the arrow. Set the tube on the bow as I did,” he positioned her hands and helped set the tube correctly, “then pull back. When firing, you would pull the tube out as you shoot, which is how the archers paradox is avoided and allows the arrow to fly straighter than other arrows, which makes switching between a Tong-Ah arrow and a regular one something difficult to get used to, because regular arrows are always subject to the archers paradox. Though maybe the thicker arrows you say that your tribe uses might nullify it thanks to the thickness. The archers paradox is how a shot’s trajectory is changed by an arrow flexing back and forth as it flies. So maybe you’ve already found out how to avoid the archers paradox, or nullify it at least. Anyway, now let’s try with the arrow.”Then she asked, "May I try it? Your bow and the Tong-Ah and one of those little arrows? You can guide me again, you know, m-make sure I'm doing it right. I wouldn't want to damage anything or hurt myself or you, since you've been so gracious."
