Swanpaw smiled softly when her brother nodded his head slightly, padding alongside him and Leafpaw as they made their way further into the forest. The tom didn't really seem to want to be there, but she let him be for now. I know I'd hate it if someone tried to push me into something.... So she let the breeze ruffle her fur as they padded between patches of sunlight and shade, a comfortable silence descending that was only punctuated by the echoing calls of birds.

Her reverie was pleasantly broken as Leafpaw spoke up again, and she looked from one to another, taking some time to think over it. "I'm... not sure.... I've never played hide and seek out here."

A smile unconsciously twitched at her lips as she remembered distant times when she'd played the game around camp with her siblings. "But hunting sounds wonderful too."

The small group of apprentices and a medicine cat continued to pad along, an unusual but comfortable silence settling over them like the snow had once settled over the forest. Instead the warm late leaf-bare sun shone on them while they walked. Amberdawn, finding herself at the back of the group, was content to let her dark amber gaze flit from tree to tree. She saw a few brave birds, who had not left at the beginning of leaf-bare, hopping and flapping from branch to branch. Once she saw a squirrel, but it was quite aware of the cats passing below and darted into a hole in a tree. The clouds moved very slowly across the sky. It was a pleasant day.

Leafpaw's voice broke through the calmness, asking brightly, "What should we do next?" She immediately began to list off all the things they could try: hunting, climbing, hide and seek. Amberdawn flashed the brown-and-white tabby a knowing grin, remembering their herb hunting patrol when there had been much more snow on the ground. Both of them had thought of the pine trees under which they'd been surprised to find ample room and shelter.

The small group of cats glanced from one to another, considering their options. In that moment, Amberdawn's stomach let out a tiny grumble. She remembered that piteous bird she'd been prodding on the fresh-kill pile back in camp and realized she hadn't eaten. "I think hide and seek is a great idea, but can we hunt first? We can catch a few things to take back to camp, and get something for us to share to eat while we're out - I'm really hungry." Amberdawn recalled that warrior apprentice's were meant to feed the elders and queens first, so she added hopefully, "It should be alright since we're not on a hunting patrol, but it would still be polite for us to get something for the queens and elders. Right?" The medicine cat apprentice looked to Sunpaw, Tinystar's son and likely the best at knowing the intentions behind the rules, for his opinion.

Hide and seek? What in StarClan's name was that game? He'd never heard of such a thing and whatever it was, he couldn't possibly be good at it. Shaking his head, he personally agreed with what Amberdawn said. They couldn't come home empty-pawed, or else they'd all look like useless clanmates. He may have been a coward of a cat, but he didn't want to disappoint his father that much, especially with such a simple task.

"We should hunt," the abnormally tall, feeble voiced tom mewed, looking down to his paws. Hopefully, Leafpaw wouldn't be mad at him for not wanting to play hide and seek.

ooc: I used the hunting system here, but you guys don't have to if you don't want to!

"Okay!" Leafpaw squeaked, satisfied with the verdict of her three friends. Hunting! She remembered first hunting with Tinystar in this very same forest, where she had caught a sparrow, and babbled about it for the rest of the day. But she had also missed catches too, and definitely didn't want to do that again in front of her friends. She yearned for their approval, just like she did Tinystar's. Leafpaw wanted to make Skyclan proud, all of Skyclan. Giving her friends a wide smile, the brown tabby apprentice began to race away into the forest. "Last one to catch prey is crowfood!" She shouted playfully, wincing afterward, realizing that her voice was very loud. I hope I didn't scare off all the birds!

Leafpaw had put some distance between herself and the rest of her group now, and walked silently through the trees. She conjured up Tinystar's training, remembering to scent the area and keep her tail still. Rustling of the undergrowth caught her eye, and the apprentice spotted a small mouse nibbling on a seed of some sort. Aha! Leafpaw smiled, lowering herself into a crouch, stepping forward slowly, the she-cat launched herself from the ground and slithered on leaf mulch. To her dismay, the mouse used this opportunity to scurry back into its hole, leaving Leafpaw empty-pawed. Mousedung! She said to herself, hoping her friends wouldn't be disappointed.

Swanpaw nodded as the others settled on hunting, a slightly nervous feeling settling in her stomach at the thought. The memory of the first time she'd every tried to catch something flashed back, and she fervently prayed that something like that wouldn't happen again. With a purr, she watched Leafpaw dash off into the forest, the young she-cat clearly intent on catching something, but possibly making a little too much noise to do so effectively. Glancing at her Clanmates for a moment to determine which way they were going, she padded over the rocky ground towards a spot that looked promising, moving as silently as she could, like Silentwhisper had taught her.

Almost immediately, she spotted a flash of movement at her chosen spot and froze. A moment later, a twitching tail appeared above an alertly sitting brown form, and the chatter of a squirrel drifted into her ears. It's not too far away. One good pounce should do it.... She settled into her haunches, drawing her hind paws underneath her and keeping her gaze fixed on the now-relaxed squirrel. Then she sprang.

The rodent gave the start of a screech before her teeth meeting in its spine silenced it, and she felt warm blood trickle into her mouth. Breathing a silent prayer of thanks, she moved off it. The scent of it suddenly made her aware of just how hungry she was, and she ignored the rumble of her stomach as much as she could while she carefully carried it back to where she'd split off from the others. A warm glow filled her from head to tail-tip at the catch, and she couldn't help purring as she deposited it on the ground and kicked as much cold, hard dirt over it as she could. I wonder how the others are doing.... She had no doubt that Sunpaw would be able to catch plenty, and despite Amberdawn's claim that she couldn't hunt as well as the others, and Leafpaw's exhilarated energy, she was sure they could bring back enough prey to feed those back at camp as well as themselves.

Amberdawn was pleased that Sunpaw agreed with her suggestion, though she had expected the dutiful young tom might. Since he hadn't said that it would be wrong, the medicine cat apprentice felt satisfied that she had made an alright suggestion. Still, he seemed as though he were worried he'd made the wrong choice too as he ducked his head and avoided the gaze of his companions. Fortunately, Leafpaw was easily pleased and immediately voiced her satisfaction with the decision they made. The apprentice's constant enthusiasm never ceased to make Amberdawn's heart warm and cause a smile to twitch at her lips. Swanpaw nodded assent as well and Amberdawn mewed, "Alright, then, I agree. Let's hunt."

As soon as they made their agreement, Leafpaw was immediately sprinting off in her chosen direction, calling, "Last one to catch prey is crowfood!" A small bird in a nearby tree took off and Amberdawn had to suppress a giggle. Even as a medicine cat, Amberdawn knew to make a little less noise than that when trying to hunt. Still, she thought little of it, as they'd all have to separate to hunt on their own anyways. Leafpaw quickly disappeared into the trees, and Swanpaw was next to follow. Amberdawn gave Sunpaw a warm smile before turning to find her own place to start searching.

The golden tabby she-cat padded through the trees and underbrush for several moments before she found herself coming to a small clearing. Amberdawn's dark amber eyes immediately fell on the bright white frame of a small, plush rabbit. Immediately she dropped into a crouch, trying to remember if she'd ever learned how to hunt rabbits - she'd certainly eaten them, and if this one had any meat on it then it would make a lovely treat for a queen. Look at those ears... Maybe I need to be quiet? The medicine cat apprentice began to stalk slowly forward, each step agonizingly slow. The sound of her heart pounding in her ears seemed so loud, yet the rabbit kept nibbling at some small shoots of plant life. The distance slowly closed between them, and then...

Amberdawn pounced and her paws hit the rabbit square at the base of its neck, breaking it under her own weight almost immediately. The poor creature let out a short squeak of terror. Amberdawn tried not to feel bad as she touched her nose to the fresh-kill's skull then looked to the sky, murmuring, "Thank you, StarClan, for this prey for my kin and Clan." The apprentice picked up the rabbit and buried it just under the edge of a bush before padding around to look for something else to hunt.

Watching as each of the she-cats ran off to begin hunting, Sunpaw let out a sigh. He hated hunting and would much rather simply eat the prey instead of being the one to kill it, but in the end, he had no choice. It was his duty as a clanmate to hunt for his clan and he needed to do a good job, or at least try to. Of course, the fear of possibly running into a predator nipped at his pelt like an annoying tick, but he tried to stay focused on the task at hand. If he ran into a badger or fox, he'd deal with it when he did.

After a few moments of stalking around with his maw open and head extended, Sunpaw picked up the scent of what he thought was a bird and the tweets that sounded as he got closer confirmed his suspicion. Lowering his abnormally tall body down as far as he possibly could, the tom made sure to keep his long tail low, though the end of it twitched in anticipation. Spotting the bird a foxlength or so away, he bunched up his haunches, his heart beating faster and faster as he prepared himself. He couldn't let the other's down, he just couldn't. Yeah, he was a coward of a tom, but if he couldn't even catch a piece of prey... he'd be a complete disgrace.

Stalking forward, he readied himself and after a few moments of simply waiting and watching the bird eat something off the forest floor, he lunged forward, claws extended. Landing squarely on the bird, he'd even surprised himself but knew he had to act quickly. Pushing the bird down under his weight, he sunk his claws in. The bird's shrill squawks and squeals filled the once still air around him and before it could make anymore noise, he bit it's neck, putting a swift end to it's misery. While he was proud of himself for actually managing to catch something, killing his first piece of prey wasn't all that great, and a pit of guilt grew in his stomach. He'd just killed something... granted it was for his clan's welfare, but he couldn't help but feel bad for the poor, unsuspecting bird. Closing his eyes, he took a moment to silently thank StarClan for what he'd be bringing back to the clan and standing up, he picked up his prey and made his way back to the spot in which the group had originally stood, wondering if he was supposed to keep hunting.

Leafpaw sighed, no prey in her maw. Perhaps her friends had been able to snag something... Padding deeper into the forest, she let her yellow green eyes flutter to a close, feeling the cold nip of the wind. She wanted to hunt again, she had to make SkyClan proud. And I definitely don't want to be called crowfood when I come back with no prey!! Ears swiveling, the she-cat managed to pick up the scent of squirrel, and tracked it along the frosty floor. She relished the feeling of her paws on the leaves, flexing her claws with glee. Leafpaw loved this land, and never wanted to leave it. The cats that lived in it were some of the bestest friends, and Tinystar was obviously the best leader in the forest, Leafpaw had no doubt. Embracing a smile, the she-cat sprinted off into the forest at full speed, no longer able to contain her glee. Trees rushed past her, and leaves flew in her wake, frost slippery under her paws. The brown tabby felt as if she could run forever.

The squirrel scent was forgotten in Leafpaw's joy, she kept zooming through the forest, when a silvery white shape appeared on the horizon. What is that? Leafpaw thought to herself, skidding to a halt just in time, barely avoiding colliding into Swanpaw.

"Oh hi!" The she-cat panted, yellow green eyes ablaze. Her gaze fell to the newly dug mound of dirt, and a purr rumbled in her throat. "You caught prey!! Good job!" Frowning, Leafpaw remembered that she should probably try for some prey as well. "I'll see you later Swanpaw!" Bounding back into the tree cover, the tabby noted a squirrel scent again, dropping into a crouch to follow it. A gray creature appeared at the side of her vision, nibbling on a nut. Bunching her haunches, the she-cat flew over the ground and landed squarely on the creature. "Yes!" Leafpaw squeaked, purring at her catch. SkyClan will love this!

As Swanpaw was just starting to head back into the forest, the sudden sound of rushing paw steps galloped towards her, and a moment later Leafpaw nearly collided with her. Caught by surprise, she flinched backwards, her eyes widening as the other apprentice just managed to keep from hitting her in time. Willing her racing heart to calm down, she smiled at the she-cat as she panted out an enthusiastic greeting, the molly's yellow-green eyes falling on where Swanpaw had just buried the buried the squirrel. "You caught prey!! Good job!" The words caught her vaguely by surprise, and she just managed to purr out a slightly stammering, "T-thank you!" Before the other apprentice seemed to suddenly remember she was also supposed to be hunting.

"I'll see you later Swanpaw!" The she-cat bounded back into the forest in a whirl of brown fur and sparkling forest-colored eyes, leaving Swanpaw feeling like she was the one who had been doing all the running.

"Good hunting!" She called out as the other cat quickly disappeared. A warm feeling spread through her as she padded back on her own way to find some prey, a smile she felt would almost be glowing widening on her maw. I don't know how she does it, but that cat has a gift for lightening spirits. StarClan forbid she should have that crushed out of her.... The smile died slightly as the disturbing thought crossed her mind, a distant memory of her own kithood before Leafkit's death coming back on the breeze sighing through the trees. She shook it off, purposely putting her mind back on task and tasting the air delicately to find any scent of prey. She has more friends in SkyClan than she can count. We won't leave her, no matter what. A sudden determination filled her, and she padded purposely forwards, the vow ringing through her head and making her tail rise behind her.

At the edge of her vision, a sudden movement caught her eye, and she pricked her ears, turning to see a blackbird noisily rustling among a few leaves to her right. Holding her breath, she quickly dropped her tail and settled into a crouch before stalking across the rocky space between them, making sure to keep out of its sight. Unfortunately, the ground just there was rather open, and after a moment the bird turned to look right at her. Though she froze and stayed as still as possible, her flanks still, it let out a shrill noise and began to launch itself into the air.

Desperately, she sprang as hard as she could off the ground, her unsheathed claws stretching out towards the rapidly ascending bird. They caught in its fluttering wing, dragging both of them to the ground in a tangle of squawking feathers and flailing limbs. The bird's wings whacked her face with its panicked attempts to escape her paws, and she chomped as best as she could through its back, wincing as the creature let out a shrill cry of pain that cut off as her teeth found their mark. Its movements stilled, and she forced herself to let go of it, faintly surprised to find herself panting as though she'd just run from camp to Fourtrees and back. As her heart stopped pounding in her chest, she was suddenly and acutely aware of a pain in her right paw. Though there appeared to be no blood, the joint throbbed with every beat of her heart. Did I twist it when I landed? Wincing, she tried to put some weight on it, causing the dull pain to intensify. Maybe I should bring this back and wait for the others.... Making sure not to put any weight on the paw, she gingerly picked up the dead bird and limped back towards where they'd split off.

(ooc: how did this end up so long?! It was supposed to be a short post XD)

Amberdawn wandered around a small section of the forest for several long minutes, lost in the sounds of the late leaf-bare forest and her own thoughts. She was hunting and waiting for signs of prey, of course. She simply let the thoughts flow however they wanted, from the sounds of bird to the scent of the breeze to Mintwhisker....

... to her secret...

... to Tinystar, and his murder of Sparrowpaw.

Amberdawn sighed. There was nothing she could do about it. The event had long passed. Despite that, some nights she had strange, frightening dreams about the young apprentice's execution. Some nights, Mintwhisker forced Sparrowpaw to eat the deathberries Tinystar had ordered her to fetch and Sparrowpaw died a horrible choking, splutting death. Other nights, Tinystar attacked like a rogue until Sparrowpaw was no more. Most nights when the dreams occurred, Amberdawn tried yelling and running to intervene but it seemed like she got nowhere, now matter how hard she ran or how loud she tried to cry. Sparrowpaw always died.

The SkyClan medicine cat apprentice hadn't known Sparrowpaw well at all. Amberdawn knew some of her history, who she was related to, and some of her worse actions, but they weren't friends by any means. Sometimes Amberdawn felt guilty for feeling so sad about Sparrowpaw's death because of it. That thought didn't stop her from feeling sad. Often she wished she'd done something.

The sound of soft scratching in the dirt caught Amberdawn's attention and immediately pulled her from her thoughts. Her dark amber eyes spotted a pale brown pelt among some foliage and recognized a mouse. She easily remembered how to catch them and, since they were often so sluggish near the end of leaf-bare, she crept up to pounce on it swiftly. She felt proud for a moment, the dark thoughts from earlier swept by the thrill of her second small hunt.

The golden tabby lifted her nose to the air, seeing if she could determine where her friends might be. Back in the direction from which she had come she smelled Sunpaw; Amberdawn wondered what luck the others had had and picked up her mouse. The golden tabby worked her way back towards the rabbit she had buried earlier and picked it up as well. Finally, she made her way back to find Sunpaw standing awkwardly (as usual) with a bird held in his jaws.

Amberdawn sat down her catches and purred, "Great catch, Sunpaw!" She hoped that he thought nothing of the fact that she'd caught more than him and half wished she'd been less successful. Nothing I can do about it now, she thought, not for the first time. The golden tabby's ears perked to the sound of another cat approaching, though their gait was off. After a moment Amberdawn scented Swanpaw, and not a moment later the silvery she-cat emerged limping awkwardly with a blackbird in her jaws. "Wow!" she exclaimed with a purr as its feathers shimmered in the daylight, "Wait until Leafpaw sees this; what pretty feathers."

Then she asked, her face darkening with concern, "Were you limping, Swanpaw? Are you alright?"
