    Amberpaw woke up shivering for the first time in her life. The nursery had been warm, full of nursing queens and kits who nestled tightly together, but more importantly she had been born in greenleaf; this leaf-fall was her first leaf-fall, and the fast approaching leaf-bare would be her first as well. She had been an apprentice for less than a moon, but one thing she was well aware of was that herbs were hard to find after the first frosts claimed the buds. The golden tabby stirred in her nest, hoping to enjoy the residual warmth for as long as she could, but sleep did not return to her and she knew that it wouldn't. Amberpaw slowly opened her dark amber eyes to see early morning light. The sun was up, but it hadn't been up for too long. Another thing she noticed was that she could see her breath as a cloud of mist on the air, but only barely. This morning was the coldest she had experienced to this point in her life.

    The medicine cat apprentice slowly raised her head to gaze around the den. Mintwhisker had thicker fur than Amberpaw did; was the medicine cat still comfortably sleeping against the cold? She must have been through a leaf-bare before. Maybe she was used to it. The bright golden tabby lifted herself to her paws, still searching for her mentor, and she felt her stomach grumble. She needed breakfast, but maybe her mentor would want something too. The she-cat exited the den and padded to the fresh-kill pile, where she grabbed a mouse for herself and a fat bird for Mintwhisker. Amberpaw padded back towards the medicine den and through towards the back of the den where Mintwhisker kept her nest, and Amberpaw mewed somewhat hesitantly, "Mintwhisker? I can't sleep anymore. I-I brought you some fresh-kill." She wasn't a kit - she shouldn't need to be kept company all the time - but she simply wasn't used to the cold - and it would only get colder. Her fur needed to thicken.

Mintwhisker stirred, looking up at Amberpaw blearily. "Hmm...? Oh, yes. Thank you, Amberpaw." Her voice was rough and gravelly- partially from sleep, and partially from the unusual cold that had settled over Skyclan territory. Mintwhisker blinked, running her nose through her fur in an effort to fluff it as much as possible. She had always envied her great-grandfather's thick black pelt- although she assumed it was never uncomfortably cold in Starclan.
After attending to her fur, Mintwhisker stretched and turned her attention to the bird that Amberpaw had retrieved for her. Her stomach rumbled, and within a few minutes, the bird had been reduced to a few feathers and a pile of bones, the latter of which Mintwhisker discarded outside.

"Alright dear," The taupe tabby was looking much more awake now, her eyes bright and alert. "I have something exciting for us to do today." There was a faint sense of urgency in Mintwhisker's tone. The cold had moved in much faster than she had anticipated. "Cold weather means dead herbs. Today, we need to gather as many as we can find. Come with me; I'll explain what we're looking for while we walk." The short she-cat flicked her tail, beckoning to the apprentice as she turned toward the camp entrance.

"Right," She began. "The first thing we need to find are some Snakeroot- little plants with white flowers. Since they're usually found in warm places, it's important that we track them down fast." The taupe tabby flicked her ears, stopping to turn to Amberpaw. "Here's your first test: Where in the territory would we find Snakeroot?"

    After Mintwhisker's sleepy but kind reply, Amberpaw took her own mouse to her nest and chewed it up quickly, her eyes flickering to her mentor as the she-cat seemed to take her time fluffing her fur and waking up. The little kit had always been an early-bird, and she was no different as an apprentice. She was more than ready to start the day. Amberpaw finished her mouse just as Mintwhisker began eating her bird, and Amberpaw took the time to get rid of the inedible remains of her breakfast outside the den. She sat outside the den when she was done, enjoying the morning sunshine while she waited for her mentor to emerge. When she did so, Amberpaw's ears perked attentively to the she-cat's words. The medicine cat apprentice could already feel it was going to be an exciting day, but now Mintwhisker had said so! She resisted the urge to knead the ground in anticipation.

    Mintwhisker beckoned her and Amberpaw followed obediently. She had seen some of the territory on their trip to the Moonstone to receive her medicine cat apprentice name, but it looked different in the daylight. Most of her trips outside of camp so far had not strayed far from it. Still, she didn't want to seem completely ignorant, so she thought hard. Where would a warm place be in SkyClan's territory? "Some place with no trees to block the sun," she thought aloud, though she wasn't sure how helpful that would be. A thought occurred to her. "What about the Halfstone?"

"Excellent." Mintwhisker purred encouragingly. Amberpaw's logic already proving to be more than sufficient, especially for an apprentice who had just left the nursery. That, combined with the golden she-cat's sharp wit, would definitely be an asset if she was going to one day become a fully-named Medicine Cat. The mental abilities she needed were present- they just needed to be honed.
"Follow me, and keep an eye out for any juniper berries on the way- we're running a bit low." She instructed, leading the way through the forest at a brisk pace. They only had so much daylight left, after all.

After a short while, the pair arrived at the Halfstone. Mintwhisker flicked her tail as several mice skittered past, her claws tensing out of habit. "Be careful." She mewed softly. "Can you smell anything?"
The second test: Sense of smell. Medicine Cats required a particularly strong nose. There was a faint odor coming from a crack beneath one half of the boulder. Mintwhisker vividly remembered the predator that used to inhabit that space, as well as the dreadful day it had attacked Tigerleaf. Rippedstar was just a deputy then, and Poplarstar was barely a warrior. The plump she-cat sighed, allowing herself to be lost in the memory for a brief moment before turning her attention back to her apprentice.

    Amberpaw listened to her mentor with interest, and followed quickly and obediently - well, as quickly as her young and still building muscles would allow her to go. She did her best to keep pace with Mintwhisker. Juniper berries, Amberpaw thought, Juniper berries. They're on bushes, and they... they're sort of indigo color. What do they do? She tried to remember as she and her mentor made their way through the forest.

    Amberpaw had to resist the instinctive urge to pounce on a fleeing mouse that darted past her as they arrived at the Halfstone. She knew she was here for, and she was going to show her mentor that she was a capable apprentice. When Mintwhicker asked what she could smell, the medicine cat apprentice parted her lips and lifted her nose slightly. She took a pawstep towards the Halfstone and took several deep, thoughtful sniffs. Mintwhisker. Mice, and other prey, sure. Something fainter caught her nose, something that seemed a few moons faded like something had been there for a long time but wasn't anymore.

    The small golden tabby lifted her head to look at her mentor. "I smell lots of flowery smells, and forest. It smells like leaf-fall. But, there's something I... I don't know. It doesn't smell like cat or herbs."
