EAGLETALON of StoneClan
"Come on Cricketpaw, we don't want to be late!"
Eagletalon glanced over muscular golden-sandy shoulders, ignoring the unpleasant squelch of mud beneath his paws from last night's rain. The downpour combined with the rapidly melting snow had made for an unpleasantly wet combination, and considering StoneClan was usually the driest of the five territories, he could hardly imagine how the other Clans were dealing with all this wetness.
Conscious of a splash of mud attempting to dry on the tip of his tail, the warrior made several enthusiastic flicks to try and be rid of the mud, but when it proved fruitless, he let it go. It was only a bit of mud, after all - yeah he'd have to groom it out later, but that was life. If he'd been afraid of getting dirty, then he would've tried to be a Medicine Cat, not a warrior.
Traipsing straight into the Sandy Plateau, Eagletalon lurched backward in slight surprise as the sand shifted underpaw, and a common brown lizard darted out of it's cover - before a handsome young gray tom lunged forward and caught it. Graniteclaw set the lizard down by it's tail, brushing sand off his whisker pads with a hasty paw-swipe before looking up at Eagletalon and Cricketpaw. He smiled, dipping his head to them both pleasantly.
He wasn't here at random, either, when Eagletalon had asked him to be Cricketpaw's opponent, Graniteclaw had been happy to oblige, having not had the chance for a good spar ever since he had left the apprentices' den those two or three moons ago.
"Good morning you two," he mewed with a quiet friendliness.
Eagletalon flashed a grin and gestured to his very very chatty apprentice with his tail, addressing her first with a flicker of his brightly golden eyes; "Cricketpaw, meet today's opponent, Graniteclaw!"
