As happened every so often, an apprentice had neared the end of their training; and thus had reached the point where they were to meet with their warrior ancestors. This time, though, Mothpaw took her time gathering the travelling herbs - as usual, consuming hers before ever leaving her den - and carrying the bundle to entrance of the apprentice's den. This was the first trip for Thornstar's (and her brother Asterspark's) youngest kits, which she viewed more or less as younger siblings; and while she hadn't had as much time as she'd have liked to connect with them (though she did try to be a good role model and example when she could), this was a prime opportunity.

"Sparkpaw!" she called cheerfully (and, true to form, loudly). "Are you awake yet?"

If she hadn't been awake already, the medicine cat's voice would most likely do the trick.

Sparkpaw grumbled softly at the loud voice resonating outside the apprentices' den. Slowly opening her eyes, she aimed her tired yellow gaze at the mouth of the den and took in a breath, preparing to tell the cat outside who had disturbed her sleep exactly where she could go -- but then the tone and the sound of the voice fully registered and clicked. It was just Mothpaw. She sighed softly; she didn't want to snap at the medicine cat apprentice. She had been kind enough to heal her wounds after having been attacked by that SkyClan warrior a few days ago, and she even forgave her after she had lied to her about how she had acquired the scratch marks and sore shoulder. Plus, she was family.

Slowly rising up onto her paws, finding the soreness in her shoulder was less potent as it had been the day she had gotten into that border skirmish, Sparkpaw shook out the moss from her long black pelt and, after giving herself a quick spot-clean with her tongue, slipped out of the den to face her half-aunt ... er, half-aunt/older sister. That was going to take some getting used to. "I am now. Why are you waking me up so early?" she meowed groggily, not a single trace of sarcasm or spite in her voice.

"To make sure you eat these," Mothpaw said brightly, nudging the herbs toward her with a purr. "After all, you need to if we're going to go to the Moonstone, right? After all, I'm pretty sure there's only one Sparkpaw, so there can't have been any mix-ups!" Silently, she also noted that there weren't any cats whose names were close enough to Sparkpaw's for her to mix up at present, and that she'd left her days of confusing names, at least, in the past (though it still happened with other words, she could at least name herbs and each of her Clanmates at a glance). "Or do you not want to go?" she added a moment later, tilting her head curiously.

Sparkpaw's eyes widened in realization. She had completely forgotten today was the day she would be taken to the Moonstone all the way in Highstones. It was a very necessary journey for all aspiring apprentices to take if they ever wanted to become warriors. "Oh, yes, that's right! Yes, I still want to visit my warrior ancestors. Perhaps I'll even meet my grandfather." From all the stories passed down to her and her littermates from Scorchstar's kin, the former ShadowClan leader before her mother had been a formidable one, well-known for his compassion and his leadership during the Great Flood that she was very grateful she didn't have to experience.

Bending down her head, she licked up the herbs, immediately hacking at the sheer bitterness. Knowing better than to spit them out, she swallowed them as quickly as she could, drawing her tongue over her lips multiple times to try and ward off the disgusting aftertaste.

"Not very good, are they?" Mothpaw asked, a hint of dryness to her tone - perhaps her fellow medicine cats had started to rub off on her, just a little. "At least you only have to eat them once. Still, now that you're done... Are you ready to go? If you are, we can leave now."

Sparkpaw gave a soft huff of amusement at her tone of voice, sounding quite reminiscent of her own usual tone. She nodded once most of the taste was finally out of her mouth. "Yes, I'm ready to go."

"Let's get going, then," Mothpaw purred, leading the way out of camp. "It's best not to keep the Moonstone waiting too long."
~
The journey was peaceful, and Mothpaw found herself feeling grateful for that. She tried to keep a conversation going, feeling curiosity about her niece/younger sister's life, but outside of the sound of their own voices it was rather quiet. Eventually, though, they reached the entrance tunnel to the Moonstone's cavern, and she turned to Sparkpaw. "We're almost there. Stay close to me, okay? It's something Amberdawn taught me when I became a medicine cat apprentice - you should stay on the path, but you don't know where it is yet, so stay close."

With that, Mothpaw led the way into the tunnel, stopping only when they were standing before the Moonstone. "Now you just have to touch your nose to the stone and close your eyes."

The journey was indeed peaceful -- but also very tiring. How did Mothpaw do it all the time, journeying to and from Highstones multiple times each moon? She was definitely stronger than how she seemed upon first glance. Sparkpaw respected her resilience and perseverance. The cave itself was so incredibly dark, even by ShadowClan's standards, yet Mothpaw still knew where to go. Her bravery was something to behold as well. Sparkpaw was quickly growing to enjoy being in the company of the Clan's medicine cat apprentice.

Sparkpaw took a few moments to take in the sight of the Moonstone once they had reached the open den within Mothermouth. It was so huge, and so bright; after being used to walking around in pitch darkness, the sudden cold brightness was putting a real stain on her eyes. She waited for her eyes to adjust before slowly approaching it, as Mothpaw had instructed.

Nestling down in front of it, her paws underneath her belly to protect it from the sheer cold of the floor, the apprentice placed her nose on the surface of the Moonstone. Instantly, she felt coldness ricocheting through her entire being, causing her to tense up -- but it was almost as instantly replaced with a calming warmth.

Light flickered through her eyelids, and when she opened them again, she found she was no longer in the cave with Mothpaw and the Moonstone, but rather in a beautifully lit grassy plain. Was this StarClan?

Frog watched as the little dark-furred creature appeared. Ah, stars, she's gonna be big like the other ones, isn't she? the gray StarClan cat thought, examining the slowly awakening apprentice's form. She's only gonna be little to me for a bit longer. I was always small - better for sneaking. Frog's glimmering green eyes sparkled as she watched the she-cat's head raised, eyes blinking as she peered about to take in the beautiful sights. Well, she was quiet right off the bat. Did that make her more or less like Asterspark? Only one way to find out. "Yep, you found your way. This is StarClan." Frog called, stepping out from an overhanging bush to present herself to the apprentice. Stars glimmered in her eyes as she asked, "I'm curious, Sparkpaw; do you think you're more like your mom or your dad?"

A brand-new voice speaking through the silent serenity of the starlit plains spooked Sparkpaw into jolting. She whipped around to find a black molly standing before her. She had many scents on her being, but one that was more pungent than the rest was ShadowClan. Did that mean she used to be her Clanmate? Well, she probably used to be her kin's Clanmate in any case.

At the cat's unexpected question, she blinked in bewilderment. She didn't know what she was supposed to have expected tonight, but this was definitely far from what she expected to be asked. Did she know Sans and Thornstar? Neither of them were by any stretch of the word young, so it could be possible they had known her while she had still been alive. As for the question....

After taking some time to contemplate on her answer, she looked up at the black molly and meowed, "I believe I closely resemble my mother as opposed to my father. I had inherited her fur, size, personality, and temper." Now, how did she resemble Sans? It was easy to determine Thornstar's genetic influence on her, but her father was a bit trickier. She hummed softly in thought. "...I may not have the same looks or behaviors as Sans, but he has taught me very important morals during my kithood. His loyalty and sense of justice is inspirational."

At first glance, the ShadowClan apprentice was quite clearly like her mother with a thick, dark coat patched with gray and sharp, bright eyes. Frog wasn't asking for a physical comparison. She knew very well what both of them looked like, both before and after her death. Still, she waited patiently as Sparkpaw seemed to take her time to answer. She's a thinker, at least - not sure which parent she could get that from. Maybe her mentor's teaching it to her. At last the visiting apprentice answered, seeming to have thought it through quite thoroughly. Sparkpaw cited her physical appearance as coming from Thornstar and Frog merely lifted a brow at that, appearing unimpressed. At temper, though, Frog snorted a little. We'll see.

Sparkpaw spoke of her father, too - "Sans" as he had decided to call himself after being exiled, and still called himself despite supposedly wanting to be in the Clan. Frog could hardly fault him; she would have joined Burntstag in a heartbeat if she'd been alive. Being dead, though, made it much easier to to judge him. "I'm glad 'Sans' was useful to you - but, I'm sorry, I'm curious. Which loyalty are you referring to? What justice?" Frog blinked her eyes innocently, looking at Sparkpaw as though simply asking for a tale. She even crouched down as if preparing for a long one.
