PostSubject: A Beetle and a Drifting Feather (Closed)    Wed Jun 13, 2018 8:34 pm

The rustling of trees woke the ginger tom from his slumber. He looked up wearily to see a soft breeze had kicked up. Dead leaves that had clung to their limbs or laid buried in the bark came loose to fall into camp with small blossoms. He scented the air, the fresh-kill pile making him feel disoriented and nauseas as he stood up slowly. He had to get out of here, he had to leave. Just for a little while. Slowly, he padded towards the entrance of camp. His paws feeling heavy and difficult as he felt his breath catch constantly in his lungs.

Marshstorm watched the young tom stand. His fragile appearance should have confined Featherheart to the medicine den. Yet, Marshstorm was aware of the time that Featherheart faced now. Of his inevitable end... the suffering he had seen in a cat at the twolegplace. He bit back the urge to demand him to stay, if the tom wanted to leave for awhile... he could. Still, his tail flicked as he called out.
"Featherheart! Take Beetlepaw with you." He ordered firmly. The ginger tom froze for a second, then turned his head to look at the deputy. Green eyes met unyielding amber for a moment, before the ginger tom swallowed back his pride and turned to seek out the young apprentice.

Slowly, he tilted his head towards the camp entrance after making eye contact with the little tom before slowly making his way out of the camp wall. His heart sinking as he observed the long distance out of the gorge. He could do it, he had done it a hundred times over. Yet each step felt heavier than the last. His shoulder wounds ached with his leg.

OOC: Sorry for the delay!

IC:
The small tom was hanging out with some apprentices, telling him how great it would be to be a warrior and how much he had learned about hunting. Beetlepaw loved being an apprentice but he couldn't wait for the step. He was less energetic and impulsive than he was a kit but the same fire and passion stayed in his core as a part of his nature.

That was why he almost jumped with happiness when the deputy named him to go on a patrol with a warrior. The white and black tom didn't waste any second and after saying bye to all of his friends quickly, he rushed to Featherheart. He greeted the other tom with his tail lifted and a smile on his face. The apprentice didn't really care about how quiet he was. The young cat was just happy to go on a hunting patrol.

Beetlepaw followed the warrior looking around with bright blue eyes. Then, he noticed the wounds on the tom's shoulders. With innocent curiosity, the apprentice mewed. "How did you get those wounds?" He asked with admiration. They were probably the result of an awesome battle defending the clan borders, he thought. The apprentice wanted to get a lot of scars that will show to the world the fighter he was.

(OOC: No worries, I got delayed as well XD)

As he crested the path, Featherheart felt a wave of relief wash over him. That was the hard part, hunting from here on would be easy... hopefully. He trudged forward as the apprentice caught up to him and mewed the question that made him pause for a moment. He didn't want to scare the apprentice... but then, he sighed to himself, lying certainly wouldn't help if the apprentice found himself in that danger. He could still see the bright moon-lit eyes of the owl in his nightmares.

"An owl attacked me while I was hunting." He explained as he turned to face Beetlepaw. Tired as he was, his expression remained kind and gentle. "We'd do well to be careful. There are no owls at this time of day, but eagles and hawks fly now. I was lucky Wisteriapool was there." He wasn't sure what would have happened if she wasn't. Whether he would have been able to wrench himself free or ... he shuddered as he thought of the alternative. That was the last thing he needed.

"Now then, we should hunt." He mewed, eager to change the topic to something more casual. The scents of various prey filled his muzzle as he looked around for the familiar signs of them. He paused as a scent grew stronger. Flicking his tail for silence with a short shush to the apprentice as he lowered his body and crept towards where the scent led.

A little sparrow was on the ground. It pecked at leaves, turning them over before it leapt to a new one. Featherheart moved carefully towards it, using the leaves as sheilds from being seen as his ears pinpointed the bird accurately. His eyes catching glimpses that became a full view as his head emerged slowly from the bush. It called out to other sparrows as it dug, and Featherheart used this to his advantage, immediately plunging out of the bush and with a steady leap managed to land on top of it. The killing bite swift even as exhaustion washed over him. His sides heaving from that small effort.

An owl?! That was amazing. Beetlepaw's blue eyes shone with excitement and admiration. Of course, it wasn't what he expected but fighting a predator required bravery and strength. Featherheart was truly a strong Thunderclan warrior. "Wow! You must be really strong, then! And Wisteriapool. I would love to fight like you and just end up with a few scars but my spirit intact. One day, I'll be a great warrior like you." He purred.

After that, he followed the warrior silently, imagining himself being a loyal warrior, following the Code and punishing the ones who didn't without hesitation. The clan was his everything and if he wanted to accomplish his goals, he had to be strict with those rules. That was his way of living... and that was why he couldn't understand why Leopardstar was their leader...

He shook his head, trying to stop thinking about that. He already knew that most cats didn't share his ideas and strictness to the Warrior but maybe one day... he would show them. For now, he had to focus on his training.

The black and white tom nodded at the older cat's words and he trotted away. His nostrils caught the scent of a rodent, probably a squirrel. The apprentice followed it with his body slightly lowered until he finally saw it. The bushy tail of the animal was the only thing he could clearly see behind the rock in front of him, a few paw-steps away. Beetlepaw calmed his breathing and approached it quietly. The angle of the jump wasn't the best due to the stone in his way but that didn't stop him from trying. In a second, the spotted tom leapt and in the air, he fixed his eyes on the animal. Immediately, he directed his claws to the animal and landed on its back. Then, he bit its scruff, completing the task.

Beetlepaw returned to the warrior's side with a wide smile and dropped the prey next to him. "How much should we hunt today?" He inquired, wanting to do his best.

Hearing Beetlepaw's excitement made Featherheart smile. His words struck deep and he forced himself not to feel sad about it. "As long as you hold faith in your clan, you'll be as strong as you can be." He mewed earnestly. He set his sparrow down and tried to dig a hole for it. The ground was hard for him though, and he resorted to placing leaves on top of it instead to disguise it.

He sat down to watch as Beetlepaw hunted. The cat who had been training him had done well. Despite his handicap with the stone, he had done very well to catch a squirrel like that. He stood as Beetlepaw approached with an approving nod.
"Well done, Beetlepaw." He praised, then considered his question thoughtfully. He looked down at the sparrow he caught. It wasn't too heavy. As long as he stuck to small kills he could carry at least a couple more without risk. "All the hunting patrols will do well today, so two more I think. Unless you find it's too heavy." He turned and padded deeper into the forest.

Scents of scattered prey hit him, but they were faint. The wispy fading trails would be far too much of a hassle to follow for too little reward. Instead he caught sight of a tree he recognised, it's bark recovering from where talons had struck it as a chill went down his spine and he turned away. The scent of rabbit filled his muzzle and he found himself... hungry. He blinked, the fleeting sensation was too good to pass up. It had been days since he actually felt hungry. That alone made the rabbit worth hunting as he lowered into a stalk.

As he reached the bush, he flinched as the rabbit's head rose in his direction. He lunged for it, even having realised it was utterly futile, for a moment he allowed himself to indulge a bit in the chase. Though he watched it run with a bit of dissappointment in himself. His sides were heaving from a trivial chase. Worst still, the hunger dissappeared. His head felt disordered and uncomfortable as he slowly padded back to Beetlepaw. Blinking through the naseua.
"Well, it was a fun chase." He mewed with a forced smile. There was no sense in dwelling in his non-success.
