Darkpaw sat quietly in the shade cast by a large rock that had nestled itself in the long grass of the WindClan moor. Spiderstep, his newly appointed mentor had asked to meet here the previous night, and the dark tabby tom wasn’t planning on being late. He sighed as the sun beat down on his thick coat, a cool breeze off the moor occasionally offering a slight bit of relief. It had only been a moon or so since he had joined WindClan, and he hadn’t been happier. He was free to run, hunt on his own, and sleep under the stars without the worry of some Twoleg calling him back into their nest. Darkpaw’s ears perked up as he heard grass rustling near him. Opening his mouth, he breathed in the scent and let himself relax as the familiar scent of WindClan flooded his mouth. He looked to the side and smiled at Spiderstep who was emerging from the grass “Spiderstep” he said, standing to greet the older warrior respectfully. Though they were similar in age, Darkpaw still looked up to the warriorMay 29, 2020 at 1:04 pm #6585marigoldParticipant
Spiderstep would be lying if he said he wasn’t nervous. He knew he had a flair for saying the wrong things at the wrong times, which made him a little unapproachable to even his clanmates. Spiderstep had only had his warrior ceremony 2 moons ago as well, and his apprentice wasn’t exactly… orthodox.
“Darkpaw.” The mentor nodded back at his apprentice, before looking him up and down. He had only seen Darkpaw a few times before, but the apprentice had noticably put on a few more pounds, looking much more healthy than he had when he’d first came. When Darkpaw had first arrived, he’d looked more like a mouse than a cat: small, scrawny, and much too weak.
“I see you’ve been well-fed,” Spiderstep meowed before turning his shoulder, not seeing the shocked look on the former kittypet’s face. “We’re patrolling the territory for your first lesson. Familiarize yourself with the area, I understand it’s much more… different than you’re used to,” the warrior purred with too much hiss.
