The day was about as good a day as the Clans could hope for, the sun shining, fluffy white clouds scuttling across an otherwise clear blue sky, and the easy temperature of newleaf, nestled right between too hot and too cold. Clearly StarClan smiled upon this idea of Lionstar’s. Ravenstar nearly snorted at the thought. The day had begun with a buzz of excitement, especially from the apprentices. Last night had been No Moon, which meant today the first ever Apprentice Games would take place. It had been decided for the last moon of newleaf, to give the valley time enough to recover from leaf-bare but before the greenleaf heat set in.
Apprentices had awoken early, going about their chores with unusual gusto, not wanting to give their mentors any reason to leave them out of the Games. It made Ravenstar’s whiskers twitch in amusement as she watched them flitting about camp, cleaning bedding and fetching prey for the elders. They were to meet the other Clans at StarClan’s Claws at sunhigh for the start of the Games Gathering and there was plenty to get done before then. Finally Ravenstar had padded to the camp entrance, lifting her tail like a banner behind her as she had called the Clan together. A few volunteers had stepped forward to remain behind and guard camp and then the majority of the Clan was filing out of camp and toward StarClan’s Claws.
Ravenstar had wasted no time pacing around the Great Rock until she came to the little ledge she used to get to the top, leaping up immediately without to wait for the other Clans to arrive. It was slightly before sunhigh, but she couldn’t stand not arriving first and allowing the other Clans to see her unable to leap properly to the top of the rock like the other leaders. She sat and curled her tail around her paws, enjoying the warmth of the sun on her dark pelt, and the warmth rising from the rock beneath her. She had never actually stood atop the Great Rock in the day time. She gave her paws a few quick licks, removing any dirt from the short journey through NightClan territory to the Gathering place. She had spent most of the morning grooming her stupidly fluffy fur and cursing it all the while. She glanced down at her Clanmates, ears flicking at the sound of the second Clan to arrive, but not deigning to turn to see who it was.
