[/blockquote][/blockquote]He loved being an apprentice, and he loved having Duckflight as his mentor. There was so much to see and everything to learn, and he had no idea how he could possibly master it all in the short 6 moons that would make up his apprenticeship. In the few weeks that they had had together, he had already figured out the tricks to hunting - though he could still use some work in that area - and even been taught the basics of fighting. His respect for every warrior had increased because of his now-deeper understanding of what they could do. The only down side to being an apprentice was that he never had time to see Swanfeather anymore, and he missed his daily visits. Both of them had been busy this leaf-bare. While he rested during his free time, she constantly seemed to be on the hunt for herbs or fighting the seasonal battle against sickness and disease that threatened every clan. There was simply not enough time in the day.
And that was why, when he had a day off, the first thing he had done was go see the RainClan Medicine Cat.
"Swanfeather!" He called, paws thudding on the ground as he practically sprinted across camp to see his mother. Mama would always have a special place in his heart, but Swanfeather had been the mother figure in his life for so long now that adding the 'surrogate' part in seemed not only odd but unnecessary. He knew the difference, and he knew that Mama would be glad that he had moved on and was in capable paws. Warmed by that thought, he called out with a new vigor. "Hey Swanfeather! You there?"
Slowing to an excited walk as he entered the den, he lowered his voice, though he could not erase the wide grin from his lips at the prospect of spending the day with the she-cat. The strong, tangy scent of herbs hit him, and while it might have made any other cat falter, he had grown used to it after spending his first few moons in her den. "Do you need help with anything?" He called quietly, eyes peering around for the familiar, comforting blue eyes. "Maybe I can show you around? I found this cool place. I think you might like it."
