42 Moons || Tom || TreeClan
In the entire six moons that had passed since the StormClan battle, Lionstar hadn't a single perfectly peaceful night; something always kept waking him up, or his dreams were filled with strange cats and even stranger scenes – muted, as though someone had blocked his ears with kitten fluff, and they always ended with a familiar face looking at him, trying to communicate without the usage of words.
After so many moons spent waking up puzzled and a little less comfortable with life as he knew it, Lionstar had finally decided to act, letting his gut take over.
Brief consultations with Littletimber as well as a trip to the Moon Tree had confirmed one thing for the golden forerunner of TreeClan; all this pent up guilt and stress most assuredly had something to do with StoneClan, and StarClan's cryptic messages had been surprisingly clear to him.
It was time to make up for ducking out of the battle that had cost StoneClan nearly everything.
Stepping out of the shadows of his den, Lionstar's golden eyes immediately surveyed the camp, targeting the select few he had chosen for this very important mission – feeling a little uneasy about a certain someone, but resolved to see this through to the end, even if he would not personally be going.
”Sixtoes, Grayowl, Silverpaw and Emberstorm, come with me.”
It was luck, really, that placed all four cats within the immediate vicinity, and Lionstar flicked his tail, immediately padding back into his den and resuming a back corner to allow for the four other felines to settle in comfortably.
With no desire to stand on ceremony, Lionstar immediately gathered the air in his lungs and began, looking from the wide leaf-green eyes of Silverpaw to the sinister gold of Grayowl, Lionstar conscious of the potential confusion running through the gray wraith's mind at this unexpected summoning.
”After much deliberation and consultation with StarClan, I have decided to send a search party into the mountains to find StoneClan, and if they're willing, help them reclaim the territory they've lost. You four have been chosen for that mission.”
Lionstar made sure to meet each of their gazes steadily – even that of his nemesis, for this was a task that, in his mind, went far beyond his usual paranoia and suspicions – continuing after a small pause. ”In the instance that something goes wrong or you need to send a message, send Silverpaw back, as she is the fastest.”
His younger half-sister blinked in surprise at this unexpected compliment, and hastily bowed her head in quick accent, a silent vow to do her best on this mission-out-of-the-blue.
”Sixtoes will be in charge, if neither of you have anything you wish to say, then I ask that you get traveling herbs from Little Timber and leave immediately.”
A resolute glint entered the golden gaze of TreeClan's leader, his shoulders broad and drawn back, decision final. He would speak more in depth with Sixtoes about what to possibly say to Hawkstar, as well as include a warning about Grayowl's...behavior, but that would come later.
With this unorthodox but highly effective group on the search for StoneClan, Lionstar was a firm believer that it would be successful all he had to do –which was perhaps the hardest part – was wait.
