I know I'd better stop trying - You know that there's no denying - I won't show mercy on you now
Everything here was a dull grey now. Trees that had once been abundant were now nothing more than piles of ash. Some remained, blackened and dead, and Ravenpaw knew it would be hard to find prey here. She also knew, however, that fire tended to bring new life with it as things settled. It had been a few weeks since the fire raged in these lands, and already she could see the tiny sprigs of green here and there as life, inevitably, found a way. Despite the dull grey landscape, however, Ravenpaw felt nothing but elation at being out so far into her home territory.
She wanted to bring some prey she'd caught back to camp and show everyone that she was a talented hunter even without stupid Honeysong to be there attempting to teach her. The she-cat...she tried to hard to pretend like she understood anything Ravenpaw was going through, it only made her look foolish. And in the end, Ravenpaw had been the one to be the bigger cat about their situation and move passed it because the older she-cat had been nothing but exhausted and upset; refusing to acknowledge her own weakness.
It was stupid, and it still annoyed her that Honeysong had come to see her even though she'd been so tired. Honestly, did the entire clan think she was such an unreasonable cat that she wouldn't have understood if her would-be Mentor had told her she was still too exhausted from the greencough incident to come meet with her? That was ridiculous! Letting out a low hiss of agitation, Ravenpaw forced her mind onto other subjects. Despite the lingering smell of wood-smoke she also had scented something living nearby and was determined to catch it.
It was likely just a mouse or shrew that had wandered too far away from its burrow but that was their loss and her gain. The lack of trees meant she stood out a bit against the grey of the world around her, but the lingering smell of smoke and ash also hid her scent from her prey. Slowly she shifted into a crouched position and held perfectly still, waiting. She waited for a long while; several minutes at least, until finally she caught movement and without any hesitation jumped and pinned her unsuspecting prey before it could so much as squeak an alarm.
Pleased with herself despite the small offering, she picked up the mouse in her jaws and turned back towards camp; tail held high and proud of herself. Who needed a silly bubble-headed Mentor when she could figure things out for herself? Hah!
