Firestar ~ Skyclan Leader
A well rested yawn escapes the leader’s mouth as the large feline easily rises from his nest hidden within the tall oak tree. Blinking his glazed ember eyes several times to remove the sleepiness that clung to him. Ears perked up as he listens to the sounds of felines sharing tongues and laughing about within the clearing. Huffing with a slight smile barely twitching upon his lips as he slips away from the dense branches that intertwined to form a make-shift den. Purring quietly as the sun’s morning rays warmed his fiery pelt. Padding further along the thick sturdy branch before pausing. His tall broad form standing tall and proud before his clan. His presence going unknown as many continued to go on about with their duties. Enjoying the peacefulness surrounding him before his gaze lands on two siblings messing around near the nursery.
Tilting his large wedged cranium as he studies the brown and black kits; Mink-kit, and his sister; Ashkit. If he remembered correctly—which he almost always did, they were of age to receive their apprentice names. His gaze softening slightly at the thought, knowing the younglings were more than anxious and excited for their ceremony to begin. Clearing his throat, making sure the sleep was brushed away from his voice before calling out to those around him: “Let all cats old enough to catch their own prey gather here beneath the Tall Tree for a Clan meeting!“ his voice boomed throughout the clearing, causing chatter to diminish with ease. Arching a brow as he nods in approval for the felines below quickly settling down. Waiting several moments, allowing all the felines time to gather below him as he stood upon the Tall Tree. “I have called upon you all to commence an apprentice ceremony!” He informed.
His piercing gaze landing on Mink-kit and Ashkit. “Mink-kit, you have reached the age of six moons, and it is time for you to be apprenticed. From this day on, until you receive your warrior name, you will be known as Minkpaw. Your mentor will be Patchedpear. I hope Patchedpear will pass down all she knows on to you.” His gaze settling into the white and black patched molly as he calls upon her:”Patchedpear, you are ready to take on an apprentice. You have received excellent training from Yellowtail, and you have shown yourself to be patient and resourceful. You will be the mentor of Minkpaw, and I expect you to pass on all you know to Minkpaw.“ he concluded for the first apprentice naming ceremony. Pausing to allow the newly named mentor and apprentice to touch noses.
“Now for the last to receive their apprentice name” he started, his gaze now turning to Ashkit. “Ashkit, you have reached the age of six moons, and it is time for you to be apprenticed. From this day on, until you receive your warrior name, you will be known as Ashpaw. Your mentor will be Darkbird. I hope Darkbird will pass down all he knows on to you.” His smooth voice carried throughout with ease as he looks down upon the tall dark tom. “Darkbird, you are ready to take on an apprentice. You have received excellent training from Waspwing, and you have shown yourself to be fearless and carefree. You will be the mentor of Ashpaw, and I expect you to pass on all you know to Ashpaw.“ The leader finally concluded, allowing Darkbird and his newly named apprentice to touch noses. His tufted ears twitching as he listens to his clan greet the newly named apprentices.
Minkpaw ~Skyclan Apprentice
Butterscotch golden eyes widen in complete surprise at hearing his name being echoed throughout camp from none other than, Firestar. His heart immediately starts racing as it was finally time for his new name and new responsibilities. Clumsily rising to his muddy brown and white paws as he makes his way towards the Tall Tree. His ears perked up as he takes everything in, smiling widely at being called Minkpaw. ‘Ha! No more lousy kit!’ He couldn’t help but think before letting his warm gaze land on his newly appointed mentor; Patchedpear. Slowly with slight hesitation he approaches the tall she-cat. Looking up at her with pure excitement and innocence, eyes fluttering close at the feel of her nose touching his. She had accepted him as her apprentice. Minkpaw toner out mostly everything else around him until it became his sister’s turn to receive her new name. Hopping around with giddiness swarming within him at Ashkit now becoming Ashpaw. “Ashpaw!” He cheered as he watches her touch noses with Darkbird.January 14, 2020 at 11:39 pm #4743Bandit (Sonic)Participant
The she cat grinned at her brother, Mi lit being named Minkpaw and being given his mentor. “Minkpaw!” She called into the sky, cheering for her brother. Ashenkit’s teal blue eyes widened at the mention of Darkbird being appointed her mentor. She scanned the assembled felines, looking for the named warrior. Then it dawned on her. Ashenpaw. Ashenpaw. I’m an apprentice now! She thought.
