Looking back, I don't even know how it all came about. I tried to pull back at the last instant, but I heard a loud *WHONK* and a very hurt look on his face.
He didn't try to move of line?

Don't beat yourself up over this, it's his fault for not getting out of the way, not yours for hitting him, unless he had his back to you when you struck him . Even then it's still his fault because he should have been aware of you wherever you were, even more so when working with ken.

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
