Newleaf 2 - A bright and sunny day warms the valley, a light breeze makes the day comfortable.
The start of the day had been one that was slightly exciting for a particular Lightningclan Warrior. The black she-cat had emerged from her den bright and early, surprisingly cheerful and much more awake than she normally would be at that time of day. She had woken up at the crack of dawn, a slight spring in her step as she walked. Rather than stay in the middle of camp or near the den, Batear had immediately turned from the den and walked down the hill that lead up to the Lightningclan camp. She stopped at the base of the hill and began to stretch herself out, extending each of her limbs outwards, sheathing and unsheathing her claws, and flicking and curling her ears and tail. She was preparing herself.
When she finally walked back up the hill, the sun was beginning to rise and cast some light on the camp. It was at this time when the sun was seen in the sky that she approached the kill-pile. She examined the options, finally choosing one of the smaller mice that happened to be near the edge. But rather than walk aside and eat it, she held the mouse in her jaws and trotted lightly towards the Apprentice den. As she neared it, she laid the mouse down right around the corner from the entrance before taking a step in, covering half of her already dark body in darkness. Her green eyes adjusted to the darkness for a moment before she looked at each of the nests. When she spotted a familiar brown and white ball curled up in one of the nests, a smile tugged at the corner's of the she-cat's mouth. She walked forward towards this nest, making sure not to disturb any of the other sleeping figures. As she got to the nest, she leaned down and lightly poked at the sleeping Apprentice with her nose.
"Thistlepaw. Time to wake up, " she whispered. She waited until the Apprentice would begin to stir before she turned and exited the den again. She took a seat near the entrance and waited. Honestly, she wasn't sure what to expect. She hadn't had to wake Thistle up until now, so she didn't know whether she would be dealing with a cranky Apprentice or if she would be happy, just as Batear was. This was Bat's second time training an Apprentice, but the first one had been quite a bit ago, so she was excited to train Thistlepaw.
When her Apprentice would finally emerge, she proceeded to push the mouse forward towards the young she-cat. "Better eat. We are gonna go out and explore the territory today."
