[RPG] move around an enethe without provoking an attack of opportunity?


In combat, if I was to attack an enemy then back-step away from them, this would cause me to be open to an opportunity attack from that enemy.

However, if i was to attack then side-step/move around the enemy, and then attack again (during the same turn), would I be open to an opportunity attack during my movement between those two attacks as well?

I feel as if this question is a bit "stupid", but I just need some clarification on how this works.

You provoke an attack of opportunity when you leave an enemy's reach without using the Disengage action. Running circles around them does not.
