they say pride comes before the fall, but i am pride, and i am the fallThe sunhigh patrol had just returned to camp and broke apart, with Nettlefur disappearing into Ravenstar's den to report the quiet on the RainClan border. Poisonleaf made her way to the edge of the camp, finding a spot next to the cave wall to rest. With one final glance around camp, the calico she-cat began to lick the mud from her paws, spitting at the foul taste. No matter how often she cleaned herself, or how long she'd lived, she could never get used to that taste and didn't understand how some cats could live with it.
It took time, but eventually her multicolored coat was groomed to perfection. She looked over herself one last time, making sure every hair was in place. Satisfied, she settled herself daintily, tail curling over her small paws tucked close to her. She let her gaze skim over the camp, taking in the various Clan activities. Her pale green eyes narrowed sharply as she skimmed the nursery, catching sight of a certain she-cat. Ghostlight's belly was swollen with kits, the black she-cat lounging on her side, as Poisonleaf's eyes burned a hole through her. The calico's hackles began to rise just watching her. There was so much anger and jealously and hate that came with Ghostlight's pregnancy, and Poisonleaf would like nothing more than to rip the unborn right from her belly and watch the light go out of the other she-cat's eyes.
Movement from the warrior's den caught her eye, and Poisonleaf turned her head to watch another black cat, one she enjoyed the sight of so much more. She rose and moved across the camp, her gait feminine and graceful. She purred as she neared him, bumping her shoulder gently into his. "Blackwolf," she smiled at him, blinking slowly. "Would you like to go hunting with me?" She moved past him, letting her tail drag along his flank, and headed toward the camp entrance, hoping he would follow. She glanced back and flashed him a bright smile, before slipping out of camp and into the marsh.P O I S O N L E A F
