Dawn crept up like the panther on the gazelle, except it was light, not dark like a panther, and a panther, though quiet, could never be as silent as the light of dawn, so really the analogy doesnít hold up well, as cool as it sounds, but it still is a great way to begin a story; just not necessarily this particular one.
