“Beetlepaw, wait for me!” Cicadapaw bounded after her brother unnecessarily, seeing as he wasn't exactly difficult to catch up to for any cat with four paws. She cast a final unhappy glance back at the group of apprentices that included that nasty tom and she-cat who seemed to determined to make this gathering a terrible experience for her brother. She shook herself as if their negativity was water clinging to her pelt as she fell into step beside Beetlepaw, “Forget them, okay? They must have shared a bad mouse today.” She let her fluffy pelt brush lightly against her brother's shorter coat, but was careful that there was no real contact to off-balance him, “We can still have fun tonight.”
She cast around briefly, looking for someone that would hopefully be nicer. If their next conversation partners took up the same attitude she'd never get Beetlepaw in a better mood about the gathering. She flicked her tail lightly against his as she noticed a younger she-cat sitting beside a mud brown tom, “Look over there. She looks kinda scared, huh? Maybe those nasty TreeClan apprentices go to her too. We should show her not every cat here is mean.” She sent a silent prayer to StarClan that this apprentice would be friendly and bounced over, barely containing herself enough to make sure he wasn't leaving Beetlepaw behind, tail waving in the air.
“Hello there! I'm Cicadapaw and this is my brother Beetlepaw,” she cast a quick, happy look at her brother and then back to Sleetpaw, “We're from StoneClan.” The she-cat's scent was a familiar one, “You're from LightningClan, right? Have you ever been to a gathering before? This is our first time. How long have you been an apprentice? Have you caught a rabbit yet? Is it very hard?”
