Summary: Robin thinks about letting go.

The proper command - the one he's given and responded to many times - is "Loose!"

Nock. Aim. Loose.

But when his world becomes a narrow tunnel of focus, when his pulse feels like it slows to a crawl, when he lets out that sighing breath and his fingers fly from the string, he's not just setting an arrow loose, he's releasing a part of himself.

Each shaft that unerringly finds it mark in another's breast takes with it a small piece of his soul.

He knows he's running out of pieces... but doesn't care anymore.

Loose... release... let go.
