Blazehawk honestly thought about it before he replied, trying to think of any safe place for them to rest until the storm was over. "You'll be safest in the camp," Blazehawk reassured, nodding to them both. "LightningClan territory is fairly low and flat, so there's no guarantee that any other shelters wouldn't flood. But the camp is on the top of a slight hill, so it will be safest." He twitched his whiskers in amusement as Russetkit rushed off in a random direction; padding forward, he overtook the little tom in a few long strides, nudging him back around. "It's the other way, Russetstar," he noted, leading the pair through the undergrowth into LightningClan territory. He felt safe again with the scents of his home Clan enveloping him. The trip was fairly short, traversing over open plain while they were being buffeted by winds; by the time they reached the camp, the rain was coming down in gusts, buffeting the trio and dampening Blazehawk's thick, striped pelt.
He turned around, flicking water from his whiskers. "Wait here," he told them, dipping his head to stay on eye-level with Russetkit. "You hear? Stay. I have to tell my Clanmates you're here." He turned around and disappeared through the bramble screen, cutting clear across the clearing to where one of his Clanmates was standing by the fresh-kill pile. A questioning of the tom informed him that Emberstar had been caught out in the weather too, and wouldn't be back for some time at the least. He nodded, hiding a bit of relief. He explained in a quiet voice that a kit had been caught out in the weather at StarClan's Claws and he was bringing it into the camp.
Ignoring the stares he received, he returned to the entrance to wave the two in with his tail. "It's okay, come in." Blazehawk nudged Russetkit along towards the currently-empty nursery, where they could dry off and rest in peace away from the prying eyes. After a moment he padded over to the fresh-kill pile, picking up a rabbit in his jaws and carrying it into the den, sitting cross from them. "Prey," he supplied helpfully, nudging the rabbit towards them. "I know you prefer fish, but I hope this is sufficient. It may be a while before you can return to your own territory."
Moving himself carefully so that the diligently watching LightningClan cats couldn't see the new guests, he purred warmly at Russetkit. "What do you think of the camp, Russetstar?"
and you thought the world would end
if you just looked the other way
