Someday I'll die, but not tonight.
Blazefang was confident that sitting around camp for moons on end while his stupid leg healed was far more torturous than the breaking and resetting combined. Every time he thought he was about to lose his mind and nearly leaped up to race across the meadow just to DO something, he forcibly reminded himself that if his leg didn't heal properly, he would be forced to become an elder. That thought alone struck such a chord of fear in him that it managed to keep him relatively subdued in his nest. If his leg didn't heal properly, he was just going to ask Rookfrost to kill him and put him out of his misery. No WAY was he becoming an elder.
But he'd reached his limit. He could no longer lay around camp doing nothing, not for one heartbeat more. So he rose unsteadily to his paws, keeping his weight off his mostly healed leg for fear of messing it up, and hobbled as quickly as he dared away from camp. Every couple steps, he put a little more weight on his bad leg, testing it. It should be healed by now, right? He must have put a little too much weight on it after one step, because it buckled, feeling weak though not painful, and he stumbled.
And there was a familiar brown pelt at his side, catching him and holding him up as he regained his balance. He blinked at his brother in surprise, then his ears flattened, “Don't you dare tell me to go back to my nest or I'll claw your whiskers off! I've had ENOUGH of my nest. I need to DO something! I'm going to go crazy if I lay around camp for one more day doing ab-so-lute-ly nothing.” He glared at Mudpelt defiantly, his claws flexing as he prepared for the inevitable argument to ensue where Mudpelt would try to do the stupid, boring, responsible thing and ruin all his fun, and he would then be forced to claw his brother's stupid whiskers off so he would know how damned serious he was. He was NOT going back to his nest.
Excuse me while I light up the sky.
