PostSubject: An Otter's Lament [Open]   Sun Dec 31, 2017 9:37 am

When he'd returned to camp after the battle, the adrenaline had worn off and only the crippling shame of his actions remained around him, choking him. His vision had begun to blur and he'd stumbled away to the edge of camp, unable to bear the idea of getting his wounds treated. He'd been foolish, driven by fanatical hatred into committing murder. The warrior code said it was okay in self-defence only. Thistlepaw had been an apprentice, how was that self-defence?

When he heard the familiar footsteps of his leader, he was prepared for the final blow or harsh words that would be soon followed by a command for him to be exiled. But instead, she'd stilled in front of him, sighing before speaking words that would haunt him forever. "I'd promised Blizzardstar that blood would be shed, that I would bring her death for each clanmate of mine she harmed. Perhaps I was writing a self-fulfilling prophecy. I know what you're thinking, you're thinking that I'm going to kill you for making this feud over land into a bloodfeud or exile you to become a wandering rogue. Pointless. You've brought us into war and chaos with one foolish bite of an apprentice's neck. So, when Blizzardstar brings her warriors for our apprentices blood, you will protect them with your life if necessary. That is how you will repay RiverClan."

"What about ThunderClan? How will I repay them?"
Otterleap remembered meowing weakly.

Ivystar had looked at him cooly before replying. "You're a RiverClan cat, not a ThunderClan cat. Leave worrying about diplomacy to your leader. You should be more worried about your clanmates reactions, we are not popular cats today. Check your moss for sharp stones before sleeping in it tonight."

It was annoying how her wit only came out at the worst times. He'd hated that when he was an apprentice, and he hated it then as a warrior.

Unlike her predictions, there had been no sharp stones wedged into his nests. Though his clanmates had set up their nests clearly away from him. It was to be expected. This was probably his real punishment, social isolation and the weight of his actions on his chest. Every time the scent of blood wafted into camp, for a second his heart stopped. What if it was one of their clanmates? An apprentice killed by ThunderClan because of him? But each time it was nothing.

He didn't know how long he could bear the weight.

He was losing his mind.

It was impossible not to hear about. Otterleap had killed a Thunderclan apprentice. The thought left an uneasy feeling in her paws. Her stomach felt like it was in knots constantly, and despite leaf-bare's clutches... she wasn't hungry. After the battle, she'd seen little of other cats in desperation for the safety of her nest.

Her mind supplied the image. Blood on his muzzle and a dangerous air around him, violence a threatening presence around him. Her eyes however, saw a very different picture. He looked so far removed from that image that her mind could barely process it. He seemed lonely.

Her stomach clenched tightly as she picked up a vole from the fresh-kill pile, a mission in mind. She padded slowly towards the warriors den and forced her fur to stay flat even as it loomed closer. When she was close to the tom, she placed down the vole and nudged it towards him. She swallowed anxiously, and fought to suppress her paws from kneading the reed floor.

"You l-look hungry." Dewpaw's voice shook, and she hated it. She hated her own shyness and wariness. He was a warrior... of her own clan! There was no reason to be so anxious. "Y-you should eat... k-keep your strength up." She looked back towards their clan mates, then to Otterleap and made the decision, despite her worries to sit down close to him. "A-are you ... alright?" She asked softly, her tail twitching the only visible sign of her nervousness.
