Rainclan | Kit
Swankit stirred in her nest, her green eyes snapping open as she awoke. Stifling a yawn, the cream-coloured kit slowly rose to her paws - taking care not to step on her siblings with her lanky limbs. She sniffed at her mother's belly, wondering if she should wake up the brown she-cat. Remembering how she had been reprimanded for being 'inconsiderate' a few times before, Swankit decided against it.
Silence cloaked the nursery, gnawing into Swankit's mind like a hungry badger. It wasn't long before the kit grew restless and tip-toed over her snoozing sister. The bright light from the nursery entrance called to her curiosity and the tabby kit stumbled uncertainly towards it. Hesitating at the entrance, Swankit jumped the next few steps forward - as if avoiding hidden obstacles.
Although it was early and quiet, the new sights and smells assaulted Swankit's senses. Unfamiliar warriors wandered about, preparing to sleep after a night patrol or planning to leave on a dawn one. A pile of fresh fish and assorted others was kept in the center. Leaves and reeds rustled as a sudden gust of wind blew through the camp - cutting into Swankit's fur and causing her to shudder from the chill. In the distance, several birds proudly sung their morning songs. It was, overall, a peaceful morning.
Swankit did not like it.
Most kits would have probably set off exploring in that instance, curious about all the sights and smells. Not Swankit. The tabby she-kit froze outside the nursery instance like a rabbit. Her heartbeat was pulsing in her ears and she felt a strange, horrible feeling in her gut and chest - anxiety.
Unsure of what else to do, Swankit crouched low to the ground, as if she were being hunted, and emitted an incredibly strange noise - not unlike someone slowly releasing air from a balloon. This noise erupted from her throat for several long heartbeats before she abruptly stopped, coughed and uttered a stubborn "No."
