Cloversnap rested in a patch of shade, her flicking tail the only thing indicating that she was awake. The sun was just beginning to set, and she found this to be the perfect time to meditate. Emptying her mind, she focused on the sounds around her. Buzzing flies. The murmur of camp. The wind flowing past faraway leaves. These noises could almost lull her to sleep.
But they didn’t, because at this moment a cat decided to approach her. She trilled a quiet purr. ”Hello.”
[attr="class","mary4"]YOU'RE ON THE SIDE OF THE ANGELS
[attr="class","mary5"]It was late in the day, and Otterpaw had been gallivanting around the camp; looking for something, anything, to fill his time since there weren't any patrols, border or hunting, for him to go on. He had visited his mother earlier, but she was busy taking care of kits.
His attention was caught by a long-furred cream colored she-cat, peacefully shading herself in the gentle breezes of the evening. She seemed to be resting, however something propelled him to approach her, maybe he could get a good conversation out of her. He didn't have an opportunity for many of those, lately. Besides, she seemed interesting, something about her attracted him, and soon he was standing before her, awkwardly staring down at her. "Cloversnap, is it?" He recognized her from many different clan events, and though he had no reason to remember anyone's name, his mind remembered everything. "I'm Otterpaw."
This cat appeared to know who she was. Which was strange, because his scent was unfamiliar. She opened her eyes and fixed her gaze on him, growing a gentle smile. It was an apprentice. An apprentice who decided to approach her for a chat. How sweet. "I'm Otterpaw."
Somehow, that name was familiar. Maybe she'd heard others mention him. Either way, she was certain they'd never met face to face. Cloversnap stretched, getting to her paws and taking a seat. "Nice to meet you Otterpaw. How are you today?" She asked, scanning his expression for any change in emotion. 'He must be a new apprentice.' She thought to herself, noticing how young the tom looked. 'I wonder who his mentor is.'
[attr="class","mary4"]YOU'RE ON THE SIDE OF THE ANGELS
[attr="class","mary5"]Otterpaw watched with her with a silent smile, observing. "I'm doing swell, how are you?" He questioned, not really expecting an answer as he continued on. "Yes I am a new apprentice, if you were wondering. You obviously were, by the way, you just think so loudly. My mentor is the leader, Sirensea. Surprised you weren't at the ceremony, but then again, why should you be? Our clan traditions are stupid and needless. We should be focused on patrolling and hunting, not busy with fancy ceremonies that take up everyone's time and attention." He finished with an annoyed eye roll, flicking the tip of his tail back and forth. The apprentice turned his glance back to her, wondering how she'd react.
"how... candid," sirensea deadpanned, though she was far more amused than her tone would suggest. the shadows that shrouded her body like a cloak fell away as she slipped forward, allowing the sunlight to paint her silken fur as if with liquid gold. like light shifting on water, her blue gaze flickered with something that was not quite curiosity as it slid from otterpaw to cloversnap, then to otterpaw once more.
"however, otterpaw, you do have a point," the she-cat continued, blinking with surprising warmth at her apprentice. "many of the clans' traditions have little purpose but to allow us a sense of formality. still, some of our, ah, more senior clanmates would prefer things stay the same. and i would rather humour them and keep their loyalty, than otherwise."
suddenly, she laughed, the sound almost girlish. her tone was half-joking, half-serious when she spoke again. "i'm glad to see there's some hope for the new generation, otterpaw, but this stays between us." turning to cloversnap, she questioned, "cloversnap, how are you? the energy in the warriors' den okay?"
Cloversnap listened to the apprentice, holding a blank expression though she felt puzzled inside. What kind of apprentice talked like this? She wondered if he had imprinted on someone who spoke analytically, or maybe it came naturally. Either way, she decided he had a definite... yellow aura. 'A yellow aura with a touch of red.' She chose not to tell him this, because if her thoughts were as loud as he said, then he'd already know. She had opened her mouth to respond when the apprentice's mentor had arrived. Cloversnap greeted Sirensea with a smile.
She listened to Sirensea, nodding along as she did so. 'I wonder if she'll stop ceremonies completely once all the old cats die.' That'd be kinda sad. Even if they were needless, they were still kinda fun.
The warrior flinched in slight surprise at the sudden laugh. She looked at Sirensea and giggled under her breath, laughing at the laugh. Her demeanor quickly changed when she was questioned. "I'm well. The energy in that den is... off, to say the least." She paused, taking a glance at Otterpaw. "Then again, they might just be tired from dealing with apprentices similar to you."
Thin: Same with my request, which was posted on the 22nd of July. If its possible that you could respond to that then that would be greatly appreciated! Hope to see our banner up soon <3
