Swanpaw sat by the creek, gazing into the fragments of moonlight dancing on its surface. The swish of leaves around her sighed in a cool breeze that smelled of leaf-bare, darkness crowding the shadows under the light of the moon. Each ray rippled in the water's surface, the sound of gentle burbling mixing with the wind in an almost foreign sound. She couldn't sleep, she hadn't been able to for what felt like moons. Out here, there was nothing but the sky, the river, and the trees. Her home, gentle as the lapping tongue of a mother, comforting her. It soothed the thoughts dancing in her mind, the agony of a thousand questions, a thousand doubts.

Moonlight. She gazed upwards, catching the twinkling light of stars far above, dancing in a glowing band across the sky. They were there, blinking back at her, and in her mind's eye she saw her mother again, the she-cat firm and gentle as she spoke. Oh mother. I can't face them anymore.... She sighed, staring back at the reflection in the waters, dipping a paw into its cold embrace and watching the ripples ring their way outwards. The sickness that had plagued her was mostly gone, but not the memories of what had happened. Now she stayed quiet if ordered to go on a patrol, barely speaking unless spoken to. Almost all hunting she did was on her own, and she hadn't spoken to any of her family for sunrises.

But out here it was quiet. It was peaceful.

OOC: omg I'm soooo sorry for the wait ;;

IC: With the weight of being a leader lifted from his shoulders, Tinylegs decided it'd be best to take a walk through the forest. In doing so, he's hopefully be able to put his mind at ease with just his thoughts to accompany him. A chilly Leaf-Fall breeze ruffled his white pelt, sending a shiver down his spine. Soon enough, Leaf-Bare would be upon them and SkyClan would need to begin preparing for the harsh seasons to come.

Walking onward, a familiar scent hit his nose and opening his maw, Tinylegs looked around to see Swanpaw sitting beside the bank of the creek that flowed through SkyClan's territory. "Swanpaw?" the little legged leader mewed, padding up to his daughter. "What are you doing out here, all alone?"

Swanpaw's ear twitched as something moved through the brush close by. A moment later the peace of the night was shattered as a voice broke through her thoughts, and she twisted around in surprise to see Tinystar - no, Tinylegs - standing there. Father. His simple question carried to her ears as a cool breeze stirred her fur, a weight bearing down on her shoulders even as the shadowy trees loomed above her suddenly small frame.

"What are you doing out here, all alone?"

Father. For a moment she stared at him as her voice failed, his blue eyes reflecting concern for her. Inexplicably, her heart throbbed inside her chest as memories swirled through her mind like the eddies of the stream at her paws. Memories of looking up at him as a kit, his gentle purr mixing with her mother's; memories of his patient care for them on their first day out of the nursery, that cold morning he'd welcomed them into the rest of the Clan. For just a moment, she longed to be that kit again - just a moment, a heartbeat, for everything to be simple, complete. Father....

Why... why was she out here, alone? She turned her eyes away, paws aching as they stayed still against the ground. "I wanted to be alone," She mewed quietly. And yes, that was why she was out here, but maybe not the reason why she felt this way. "I.... Do you... do you remember when I was a kit? And we used to play games - you, Mother, Sunflower... everyone - it... everything was so... golden. So beautiful."

She felt something leach out of her, the very warmth of the memories turning dull and faded. Distantly, she noted her own shadowy reflection as it rippled in the dark burbling waters, tumbling over rocks, cold light and black shadow twining together. "What changed?" She whispered.

Realizing that he'd interrupted Swanpaw and her time of solitude, part of him wanted to leave, but before he was able to turn around, his daughter spoke. Her words were bitter sweet, reminding him of better, simpler times. Days that he could wake up and not worry about who'd he disappointed this time. But, all things must come to an end, and those times were no more.

Swallowing the lump that'd grown in his throat, Tinylegs looked up to Swanpaw as she stared into the calm water bellow.

"I... I don't know," the little legged elder mewed softly. "I suppose, everything," it was a very broad answer, but he honestly didn't know what else to say.

Swanpaw looked up as her father spoke, searching his eyes for something, anything. All she found were eyes reflecting her own troubled thoughts, helpless for answers. Slowly, she exhaled, the air from her deflated lungs mingling with the sigh of the wind. In that moment, the last thread of fantasy she'd been clinging to gently let go its grip, and she finally saw him as he really was - not some idealized figure she'd held up her entire life as the one who knew everything, the one who couldn't make mistakes or be shaken, but just an old, tired cat. Just like me, just like all of us, I suppose.

Bitter disappointment welled up in her heart in spite of herself as she looked back into the dark waters below. The father she'd always believed in, even as he murdered and grew cold in front of her eyes - even as his insecurities and confusion became clear - was still no better than the rest of them. Why, why couldn't he have been different? And yet, how could she expect him to be? Why should she? She closed her eyes for a moment, feeling the wind in her fur, the smell of the pine trees sweet on the breeze.

"I wanted someone else to put my faith into, someone else to carry my burdens for me and help me see through my confusion. But I can't. There is no cat living nor dead who can. Life is a terribly lonely journey, and you're the only one who can bear your own burdens," She found herself whispering as she opened her eyes and looked back up at the stars, the chill in the air sending a shiver up her spine. For a few moments she let silence clothe them, before stirring and speaking up again, turning back with a sad smile to look at her father. "You know, I saw Mother when I went on my moonstone journey. She was like a star, but she was still Mother," She mewed, before adding softly, "She still loved us."

It hurt him to see a disappointed look on her maw before she turned away. He could only imagine what she was currently disgruntled over, but even so, was he really that incapable of making anything better? Apparently, he was, and it was no small thing to be proud of.

Listening as Swanpaw spoke on with his ears flat against his head, Tinystar let out a sigh when she finished, taking a few moments to think about what to say. Before the stumpy legged tom spoke, he sat down beside her, curling his tail neatly around his tiny paws.

"Of course she does. Dead of alive, your mother was, and is our biggest supporter... the best mate and mother any-cat could've asked for," Tinylegs mewed, facing the creek and shutting his eyes in hopes of being able to remember her more vividly. If only she was still here.

"And believe me when I say that I understand that life can be a real thorn in my side, but it doesn't have to be a lonely journey, Swanpaw," he continued, opening his eyes and turning to look up at the she-cat. "Swanpaw... I know I wasn't the best leader or even the best father, but don't walk alone. I'll always be here for you. Sunflower, Daylily... your family and friends, we're all here. While we each live our own lives individually, clans aren't meant to be a group of cats that walk separate paths, we're supposed to carry and support one another, to protect and care for our clanmates," he mewed, a small smile lifting on his muzzle as he finished. Not too long ago, he'd felt the same way as her, alone and afraid, but he'd come to realize how important the strength of the entire clan was, and hopefully she would come to learn that too.

Swanpaw closed her eyes as her father replied, listening to his voice over the trickling clear call of the water beneath her paws, blending with it in a dance of things old and things new, things no longer and things still going, on and on. When she opened them, he was gazing at her with his baby-blue eyes - eyes like hers, yet older and wiser.

He was right, too. He always had been, even when he wasn't there. Yet her heart still cried out, still wished he had been there.... Where were you when I needed you? When I was lost and afraid? Why weren't you there?

"I know, and yet I don't. All of you were there, but you weren't. I wish I could walk with you, hunt with you, know you, but... but..." She felt tears welling up in her eyes as she shook her head, her quiet voice hollow. "Sometimes I feel it would be better if I were in StarClan, with mother and the others. Here... I feel useless, and I..."

Hollow eyes full of pain stared into her father's as she crouched down, bringing herself below his eye level almost as though she was trying to go back to her kithood, when she had been so small she could hide underneath him. "Please, please tell me it will be okay. I don't want to be alone anymore. I want to come back...."

Memories flitted through her head, memories of being alongside her clanmates, of hunting with them, and them disappearing - of a smile one moment and gone the next. She didn't know anyone but her own family - half the Clan were practically strangers to her - and in the apprentice den she was all alone. Sunflower had moved on, as had Daylily. Leaftwirl was gone, her friend grown distant as Swanpaw fell to sickness and somehow hardly managed to interact with her anymore. Where had she gone wrong? What had she done?

"But I feel like a ghost."

"Don't say that," the former leader huffed, his soft gaze turning into a scowl, more or less. It hurt him to see her in such a state, but he had faith in his once bubbly daughter to bounce back, and hopefully for the better. "You're not a ghost, you're Swanpaw, my eldest daughter and valued member of SkyClan. Everything will be alright, you just need to have the strength to get past this little...rut," he spoke firmly, his emotions swirling every which way. He loved Swanpaw and wanted her to get through this, but that wasn't going to happen if she kept moping about it.

"Your time will come when you join the stars, but only StarClan knows your fate and something as such is not for you to decide," he pointed out, looking from the she-cat and up to the moonlit sky above. "Swanpaw, I love you so much, I hope you can see that I truly do. You don't have to be alone, I promise," he sighed, looking back to his daughter with a soft smile on his muzzle.

"Now then" the little tom piped and stood up. "Let's get back to camp before both of our tails freeze off," he chirped, nudging Swanpaw's shoulder in a lighthearted fashion before giving his pelt a shake.

He didn't understand. Swanpaw looked up into his pained eyes as he rebuked her, his tone just slightly stiff. She could see it in the sudden scowl as he abruptly closed off and firmly rebuffed her words.

"You just need the strength to get past this little... rut."

She almost flinched at his hesitance, slowly pulling herself back up into a sitting position as he looked up to the stars and sighed. It was like... it was like she was a young kit again, and he had to explain something incredibly simple to her. Something she couldn’t comprehend in her young mind. In a way, maybe she couldn’t. Maybe she still was that little kit, and just hadn't ever grown up.

No, it wasn't for her to decide when she would go to StarClan, but a part of her still wondered why they hadn't taken her long ago.

All she had ever been was a failure.

No!

She flattened her ears against her head, looking back up as Tinylegs regarded her with a soft smile. Yes, he did love her. He did, but he also didn't know the ghosts in her own head she fought with. The only reason she felt like she'd become one was because she'd let them tell her who she was. Now I don't know what to do.... She couldn't even speak to her own father about it, she couldn't tell anyone....

 He stood, forced cheerfulness in his tone as his eyes sparkled in the moonlight, and for a moment she simply sat, coldness like the coming leaf-bare forming in her bones. I do want to come back home with you...

But.... The thought wouldn't leave her.

Shaking it away for the moment, she forced a smile back, her face hiding a soul with darkness for eyes and pain for a heart. "Yes, you're right. I will get over it."

But in her heart she cried; she bled. A silent trail of invisible blood droplets trailing all the way back to camp behind her. I can, I will. She could, she would. The dark forms of trees leaned blackly out of the night, their cold forms clawing at her pelt as she followed her father - the only source of light she had at that moment. If she didn't have her family.... She shook the thought away, moving up until she padded beside him, seeking comfort in his small, familiar form as he waddled back to camp.

I will. I will get over this. I will be better....
