When everything was said and done, she was still the deputy of Nightclan. Come rain or sleet or unabashedly rude clanmate, she had a duty to her clan. Sometimes that duty just so happened to include putting on a smile when approached by non-Nightclan cats at the gathering.
It only made sense, after all she did represent her clan much like her leader did. So it was in her best interest to make her clan look as good as possible, and sometimes that would include forcing herself to talk to and mingle with cats from clans she couldn't care less about.
Needless to say that it had gotten boring rather fast. After all of the leaders had given their reports, she had contented herself to chat amongst the other deputies in the hopes of potentially gaining some intel on the other clans. That plan quickly proved to be going nowhere though as all of the other deputies had no intentions of letting any major information slip.
So now she was once again left to her own devices. Her amber eyes quickly scanned the crowd of cats however, searching out the familiar white pelt of her mate in the hopes of finding someone she actually cared to talk to for once.
Tinytail was bored as always. She spoke to a few Nightclanners, but after a while they went to mingle with cats from other clans. Not her, no she refused to. She could never force herself to do such dreadful things. No other clan could be trusted. They were all enemies to her. Squirrelpaw didn't see that however, and that was fine but as long as she could remember, she was taught to hate and never trust the other clans. She had been watching a few males since her last talk with Redcloud, not many stood out to her. She sighed and turned towards Redcloud in the distance and gave a soft smile. Finally, someone she could have a pleasant and meaningful conversation with. She made her way over and sat herself down in front of her.
"How can any Nightclanner mingle with such Clan trash I'll never understand. How are you Redcloud?"
She spoke quietly enough so only Redcloud would be able to hear her. She had no intention of making a scene, not yet anyway but when she was Deputy's and Redcloud was Clan Leader, Nightclan would rule over the forest at last.
