Gullswoop & Hawkfall
Gullswoop nodded in agreement to Stormstar's suggestion of spreading out. He didn't want to waste any time. The gatherings provided him a rare time to see his older brother and as eager as he was, Gullswoop kept himself under control. He glanced toward Lotuswhisker with a small, slightly nervous smile. They weren't anything formal, but Gullswoop couldn't deny he had a small crush on the beautiful she-cat. It was too early to suggest anything beyond that, so he kept his feelings to himself. He kept close to her without hovering as he waited for any of the other clans to arrive.
Sure enough the next scent to fill his nose was the smell of StoneClan. Perking up instantly Gullswoop rose to his paws, his tail twitching as he waited to see who followed after Hawkstar. A loud purr escaped him as he saw his brother's green eyes from the crowd of StoneClan cats. Glancing toward Lotuswhisker he was half tempted to ask her to join him in greeting his brother, but instead he waited until Hawkfall sat down before walking over by himself.
"Brother," Gullswoop meowed, bringing attention to himself. Hawkfall's head turned sharply a sense of surprise in his green eyes.
"Gullswoop!" Hawkfall greeted his brother warmly by rising to his paws and pressing his nose to Gullswoop's cheek. While they may have never shared a meal together or even a nest, Gullswoop would always treat Hawkfall fairly. He didn't know what drove his brother to leave RainClan, but even if he didn't understand Gullswoop would always love his kin. "So much bigger then the last time I saw you and it seem you have gotten into a few fights too, Hawkfall commented, flicking his tail to the scars over Gullswoop's eye. While the silver tabby was still hyper aware of the scars, he had started to embrace them a little more each day, it helped that Hawkfall's words weren't meant to be hurtful.
"A lot has changed, Gullswoop replied, realizing that Hawkfall didn't know what had happened. A slight flash of hurt filled Gullswoop eyes as he cleared his throat, emotions suddeningly threatening to overwhelm him.
"Is something wrong? Is Crowblaze okay? Are you feeling ill?" Hawkfall asked suddenly picking up on Gullswoop's distress.
"No, everything is okay now, but I have to tell you something. Um..Dad is dead. There has been a lot of bad stuff happening in RainClan, its all better now for the most part, but we lost dad in the process," Gullswoop told him, watching his brother's green eyes cloud with a strong look of pain and hurt. A long silence broke out between the two brothers.
"Thank you for telling me," Hawkfall managed to say, doing his best not to let his voice shake. Gullswoop moved forward to press his nose into Hawkfall's shoulder, holding back the urge to wrinkle his nose at the scent of his brother's pelt, instead he focused on providing his brother some kind of comfort.
"Everyone else is okay and I uh sort of have someone I want you to meet," Gullswoop meowed, this was his attempt to change the subject and lighten the mood. Hawkfall forced a smile, pinning his emotions to the back of his mind to process at a later time, likely with his mate beside him. Hawkfall simply nodded as Gullswoop took the lead, taking his brown tabby furred brother back toward Lotuswhisker.
Lotuswhisker! I'd like for you to meet Hawkfall, my older brother. He and Crowblaze are the same age," Gullswoop explained, stepping aside for Hawkfall to join him. Side by side it was no mistaking that they were siblings, Gullswoop and Hawkfall were almost the same height and carried similar fur types. Their noticeable differences were in their coloring.
"Nice to meet you Lotuswhisker," Hawkfall offered in greeting, dipping his head in formality.
Note: first time Gull and Hawk have been at a gathering together!!
