Crimsonshadow had gotten used to hunting in the shelter of trees. They had been plentiful in his old territory, and made it easier to hunt for someone with a bright, colourful coat like his. In StoneClan, he had learned to work around the lack of shelter; but the Little Woods had become a favourite spot of his, because while there wasn’t many trees, there was something for him to use to his advantage. Wiggling his haunches, and trying to keep himself aligned with the thin outline of a tree, he sprung forward and landed gracefully atop an unsuspecting mouse. After he executed a killing bite, he triumphantly threw a glance over his shoulder and gestured for Honeypaw to approach him.
He had been blown away when Hawkstar gave him the privilege of training an apprentice. He had never gotten the chance to train someone in TreeClan (with good reason) and had, truthfully, expected that he would have to wait far longer than he had before he was entrusted with the tutelage of a StoneClan cat. It pleased him to no foreseeable end to know that his new Clan leader had faith in him. He was slowly working his way into the entire Clan’s good graces, and if he did a good job with Honeypaw, he would be accepted as a fully-fledged StoneClan warrior in no time.
“Someone with red fur like mine has to be extra mindful of their surroundings, and use them to his or her advantage. The Little Woods, for example, is one of StoneClan’s most forested territories, which makes it a prime hunting ground for cats that don’t have neutral colouring.” He would’ve liked to teach her how to hunt in the Barren Scrublands, too, because it was a little more suited to StoneClan cats, but it was too far out of his element. “Now that you’ve had a chance to watch how I use my surroundings to ensure a successful hunt, I’d like to switch places with you. Let’s see what you’ve got, Honeypaw.” With a small smile, he gestured for his apprentice to take the lead.
