So let me take this medicine to quench my love for violent things.
Sunblaze stalked through the tall grasses of the meadow LightningClan called home, a freshly caught hare dragging along, dangling from his jaws. Hunting was not entirely his favorite past time, after all, prey only ran, it never fought back. It was generally pretty boring. After the first one or two sprints through the grass, it got old fast. This was his second hare of the day and he was making his way back to the hole he'd left the first in to carry them back to camp now that his enthusiasm for hunting had worn thin. He wasn't on a patrol or anything, so it wasn't like he was shirking duties. He had been bored so he had gone out to hunt a little.
As he approached the hole where he had left his other hare, his hackles raised and a growl rumbled in his throat at the stench that struck him, even over the smell of the hare in his mouth. He set down his prey, ears flattening against his head as he stalked forward, his tail lashing. Dark ginger fur flashed through the grass ahead and he peered out to see a young fox tearing into HIS hare. It had to be young to be so stupid.
Enraged that one of the hares he had caught had gone to complete waste to this stinking fox, Sunblaze charged forward with a furious yowl. He had every intention of clawing enough meat from the fox to more than make up for the hare it had stolen. Not that he would ever actually eat fox, or expect any other cat to do so, but the StarClan forsaken creature was going to pay with its own flesh and blood for not only stealing from him, but from his Clan, and more importantly, his family.
He leaped on the startled fox's back, digging his claws in as deep as he could, a maliciously satisfied grin pulling at his lips as he heard the thing yelp in pain. He sank his teeth in a moment later, eyes squinted shut against the horrible taste of fox blood that flooded into his mouth. With a high pitched screech, the fox threw itself to the ground and rolled, trying to dislodge him. As it was about to roll on top of him, he released it and thrust out with all four legs, pushing them both away from each other before it could crush him beneath it and rolling swiftly back to his paws. As the fox turned to snap viciously at him.
My swan song will be like a bullet laced in anger.
