”Sure you can join me,” he mewed, nonchalant, casting his gaze over her entire form before resettling on her eyes. ”But can you hunt in your condition? Just going for a walk is much easier.” It would require her to expend less of what little energy she actually had left, Sprucefur surprised she'd even asked to go out hunting again at all. It was taking his brain a few moments to really process that she was ready and willing to spend some alone time with him free of any other busybody or friend of hers that she would likely choose to converse with over her.
Of course, he was also aware that she was mainly using him as a means to get her mind off whatever was troubling her; she didn't truly wish to go hunting with him in particular. Had any other cat walk by and stopped to speak with her, he was fairly certain she would've asked the same thing; he had not caught her eye or appealed to her nature at all.
He had simply been in the right place at the right time.
Not wishing to begrudge what little show of kindness this was, Sprucefur set about burying his squirrel, letting her digest his words and decide whether she wanted to be stubborn and hunt regardless of her fatigue or go for a walk with him throughout TreeClan's territory. Pale paws scraped and dug at the earth until he had a sizable hole, depositing the bushy-tailed rodent into the beginnings of a cache before recovering it with ease, Sprucefur noting how some of the dirt around here still had a few flakes of ash or charred tree from the fire. He'd wash it off in the sparkling brook later – or he could do it now.
Sprucefur glanced at Feathercloud. Would she notice or care if he bothered to wash the dirt off his paws? He almost smiled a little bitterly. Nope, it wouldn't matter; he was just a pale shadow of Lionstar, so he should do what shadows did best – blend into the background and not distract from those who were apparently much more worthy of attention.
