TELL ME BABY, WHAT'S YOUR STORY?
Things seemed peaceful. The Pineneedle Clearing was quiet, minus the light crunching sounds that could be heard from the center of the clearing. Right in the center sat a relatively large squirrel, tail fluffed out behind it and some sort of nut in its small claws. As it chewed on the nut with its teeth, it seemed unaware that it was being watched.
With narrowed eyes, a dark feline remained crouched in the shadows of the surrounding bushes. Thankfully, the sun was already starting to set behind the mountains, so the trees cast a darker shadow that was much easier to hide within. With her body lowered to the ground, Brindlemask had to urge to hunt the little creature herself. But she was not alone on this trip.
Her gaze shifted to her side, catching sight of Hawkpaw. She needed to see how much he had improved with hunting. Luckily, this squirrel had been in the area when they arrived. Though, the Pineneedle Clearing was a bit more of a difficult area to hunt in since it was harder to get closer and also stay hidden. But this was the point. If Hawkpaw was able to get close enough to the squirrel to catch it, he would already be quite skilled. Even she would have trouble in this situation.
She had instructed Hawkpaw before they turned to hiding for him to try catching the squirrel. She gave no specific technique to use. She didn’t specify what he should do. She intended to let him figure out his own way to catch it. She would learn more about his prefered method of hunting this way, which would help her in the long run. It could also help him determine the easiest way for him to hunt when on his own.
