Hunting and Forgetting

This is the only case where I disagree with my namesake; I agree that the sight of the creature being found, pursued, and hunted would drive thoughts of love from the mind of a lover; but I declare that to see her caught is neither a pleasant sight nor exciting but upsetting rather. I do not think that a lover would forget his love for this.
