Oakpaw had been assigned to a hunting patrol with his mentor, Ratfur, and also Blackwolf and Halfmask. The four had left camp with Oakpaw bouncing along with the warriors, though he was quite overdue for his own warrior name. Other apprentices liked to remind him of that and laugh, but he just laughed with them. It was kind of funny, wasn’t it? But he didn’t mind not being a warrior. It just meant more time with his mentor! Oakpaw was always up for spending time with Ratfur.
The others would disappear, tracking some scent or another, and come back with a piece of prey hanging from their jaws, and meanwhile Oakpaw was having a hard time even finding a scent to follow. Slowly the patrol made their way toward the RainClan border, hunting as they went. Oakpaw wasn’t about to give up, keeping his nose to the ground and his ears perked as he tramped along, probably scaring most prey away before he’d even have a chance to smell it.
Finally he caught a scent! A squirrel? It was rather odd to find one in this part of the territory but Oakpaw wasn’t about to complain or stop to analyze the information. He took off after the scent immediately and heard the squirrel scamper off ahead of him. He was NOT going to let it get away; it was the first prey he’d scented at all this whole patrol! His paws drummed over the ground, his claws tearing into the earth all the better to propel himself forward, faster, as he tried to catch up to the squirrel.
He didn’t register in the slightest when he crossed the border into RainClan territory, and then the squirrel was up a tree and he was skidding to a halt before he ran face first into the trunk. Only his skid didn’t go so well and he slipped onto his side and smacked his head on a rock, knocking him out cold. Luckily a nice RainClan patrol was on the way… or not so luckily.
I won't be posting again until after Halfmask and Sandstar have died. I'll have Ravenstar come in leading the border patrol that was supposed to come to the RC border so Mallow and Razor are outnumbered and can't try to gang up on Blackwolf for killing their leader xD Oaky shall be passed out and oblivious to the trouble he's caused xD
