It was not often Vipertail was called to help. He had great pride in his skills, a boasting some would find irritating. Enough so that the black-furred tom did not assist with helping young apprentices learn their talents in fighting. Some of them would seek him out, get returned to their mentors out of breath and a wariness towards him. He fought hard, and by the rules. It was a dizzying combination, close to what an actual battle would be. Yet here he was finally, leading mentor and apprentice with permission to assist, towards the sandy clearing for a bit of battle training.
He flicked his ears back at his charge. Sorrelpaw was a good fighter. She had been chosen after all to participate in Stoneclan retrieving land that was rightfully theirs. She was bound to be a warrior afterwards. They were successful, of course, but the tabby she-cat was brought back to camp with a nasty wound and a long recovery period. She deserved better, and with her mentor slowly showing her pregnancy, Vipertail was called to assist. The kits needed protection as much as Sorrelpaw needed to find her paws in the world of fighting again.
"This'll do," he announced, turning to the pair behind him. His green eyes examined the pair, watching Sorrelpaw closely. No one had gotten the truth of what happened during the battle from her perspective. She had left fierce, with claws eager to fight, and returned with a new knack for avoiding any mention of fighting. Well, he thought, we will not put it off any longer. Have to face your fears eventually. The young tabby she-cat glanced at the clearing with interest, but the worry caused her fur to bristle, tail twitch with unspent energy. "Where would you like us to begin, Frozenrain?" Vipertail turned his attention to her mentor. She knew more of what the young cat was going through, and would give them a suitable starting place.
