Couldn't you just feel it?
That change in the wind. There was no denying it; Newleaf was coming, and it would be roaring back to life with a fury, if Duskpaw had to wager a guess. Inhaling deeply the chilly breezes that blew down from the mountains, the beautiful tortoiseshell feline swiped a damp paw across her ginger and black face, a brief cleaning before she and her friends left for a hopefully successful hunting trip.
A flicker of movement out of the corners of her leaf-green eyes made her focus on whatever it was that had shifted, the almost-warrior (being of the appropriate age) perking up upon recognition of that same gray and white pelt and those determined green eyes.
"There you are," she purred, moving fluidly despite her sturdy structure to greet him with an affectionate brush against his shoulder with hers, espying Sparrowpaw just a few mouselengths away. "And you two! Are you guys ready? Today is supposed to be my assessment day, a little birdie told me Lionstar is already out there hunting - I don't think it would hurt if we just so happened to cross paths with quite a lot of prey..."
Green eyes glittering, the she-cat was in her usual good spirits with a surprising note of determination, setting aside her amicable personality in favor of pushing a little closer towards her goals. Though Nobleheart had no reason to work extra hard in front of Lionstar, and neither did Sparrowpaw, not for another few moons - they were still her friends, and friends looked out for each other, did they not?
Trusting that they would have her back, the tortoiseshell pivoted, dappled plume swaying through the cool winter air as she moved further towards the TreeClan camp exit.
Right then. Duskpaw stared into the snowy wonderland just beyond the shelter of the many dens and nooks that made up their home; she was going to become a warrior today, even if it killed her!

Notes: xD I know that last line was a little distasteful, but I couldn't help it.
