Even when they know I am out here, even when they are certain, I can outwait their certainty.

I am as patient as a stone.

As the sky.

If a man is certain or suspicious, he will be wary.

He will watch himself, prepare.

His wariness will act as a shield.

Killing a wary man does not have the same effect.

If a man is prepared, when he dies it is as though he dies in battle.

It is better, then, to strike seemingly out of nowhere.

To become the hand of fate or the wrath of an offended creator.
