It was elegantly made and decorated, and I am sure that Amphitryon would have kept it with him except that he, who by ordinary standards was far from weak, found it impossible to aim steadily. Despite Enkidu’s having made the long journey to the herding range once before, he still managed to lose his way as we drew near our goal.

Tarn was determined to hang on to his leadership, such as it was, especially as he was a couple of inches taller than me, though probably a little younger. I think it cost him a valiant effort not to be impressed by the fact that I had not only killed a man—no one else in our crew had done as much—but had somehow escaped serious punishment for the deed. I thought of demonstrating how easily I could draw the bow, then offering to let him try.

The returning general was in good health but looked somewhat dirty, tired, and worn, after a journey of several days. He came to his wife and kissed her hungrily, locking her in an embrace. If the general had not been entirely without women for the past several months (and he certainly had not), he had endured that time without the one woman he preferred above all others.
