Mousefeather - TreeClan WarriorThe sun struck the trees just perfectly, brilliant rays of sunlight seeping deep into Mousefeather's fur, sending a pleasant tingle of warmth down across her spine. The small cat let out a rippling purr as she danced under the gentle sway of trees, her large paws carrying her across the soft mossy ground in a graceful waltz. The small warrior slowly made her way towards the fresh kill pile, making sure to appreciate her surroundings, rather than move with sole intent. Gingerly, Mousefeather picked a small vole from the pile, and quickly set to work, trying, with best intent, to eat around the thick wiry fur.
As she finished her meal the warrior let out a very satisfied meow, turning her attention to the many cats that were populating the camp. An apprentice stood out in particular, as he meowed loudly about his recent adventure on patrol with Lionstar; One word in particular caught the small she-cats attention: Trees. In a whirl of excitement, Mousefeather pounced across the clearing, her heavy paws catching her and cradling her silently as she landed from her large bountiful hop. The she-cat's large eyes lit up like the moon as she listened to Finchpaw's story about climbing one of the tall trees near Nightclan's border, recalling her own similar adventures with many similar trees, perhaps even that very tree, trying to catch a glimpse of what lay way beyond in the distance.
The apprentice turned at the new warrior's arrival, a pride filling his chest as he towered over her, his large Maine coon frame, seemingly dwarfing the little she-cat. Mousefeather noticed his amber eyes fill with a sort of fire and he continued to speak, glossing over what she had previously overheard to have been quite the stumble. A sudden idea rushed to her mind. Leaping up from her resting position, the warrior couldn't help but mew with excitement at the new prospect that invaded her mind. "Say, Finchpaw right? I know I'm not your mentor or anything-- Goodness knows if I was the only thing you'd learn was how to climb-- but if you wanted, I'd love to give you some tips. I-" Mousefeather paused briefly for a moment, her eyes grazing across the apprentice's flaming pelt, before continuing: "I'd love to help. If you ask me, there's never enough cats in the Trees."
For a second, the warrior was sure that the larger cat might just dismiss her, but perhaps she had underestimated this Finchpaw whom after a moment of silence agreed, mentioning only that he needed to talk to his mentor, Gorsetail about it. Mousefeather's eyes widened as the ginger tom spoke, cutting him off with a loud purr and a flick of her short tawny tail. "Please, I insist, Let me."
With her words the she-cat turned on herself sharply, facing in the direction from which she could hear Gorsetail, her skin flushing under her golden coat. She shook her head briefly, trying to push back the thoughts flooding forward through her mind. After all, it was hardly her fault that Gorsetail had stumbled into her sights during one of her many tree escapades, and it was hardly her fault she couldn't help but admire the tom. With a small nod, and a second wind to her determination, Mousefeather bounded forward, her limbs moving soundlessly as she approached the deputy. She let out a cordial meow as her eyes traced their way to Gorsetail, approaching him with a feigned ease.
"Gorsetail, Greetings." The she-cat licked her lips awkwardly, trying to prevent the soft crack that she felt in the depths of her throat, "I just stumbled across Finchpaw, and I couldn't help but overhear-- Well you know how I am-- Trees." She let out a nervous laughter, in an attempt to lighten the load of her following question, "Well I was wondering if you might let me help Finchpaw learn to climb properly. I can't really have his ruining all the tall trees in our territory with those claws-- My goodness, just the thought of him squandering all our lovely trees-- Anyways, If you'd let me, I'd love to tag along, maybe show him a few ways to not cause complete chaos on his descents."
She couldn't help but let out a brilliant smile at the thought of having a valid excuse to climb, a purr rumbling in the depths of her chest, as she hung off of Gorsetail's words to come, hopeful that he might agree to her idea.
