The sun had begun to rise, golden streams of light pouring through the clouds beside the rainfall. Still warm, but not too hot thanks to the rain, it was the perfect morning for a walk.
Gracefully, Emberlight hopped about from rock to rock to look for the perfect place to sit and watch the remainder of the sunrise. However, none of them had that perfect view that the Abyssinian warrior had been hoping for.
As the sun continued to rise, Emberlight's movements became quicker in the hopes of finding a good spot before the sun was all the way up in the sky. Each new place had something terribly wrong with it. One of the rocks had an okay view, but was so terribly uncomfortable that the ruddy tom couldn't bear to stay on it for longer than a few breaths. Another was perfect: smooth and warm, but the view was completely blocked by a stray tree. How oddly inconvenient.
I know one place where there is a plethora of smooth stones and few trees. Emberlight smiled coyly before sprinting along the river, getting closer and closer to the border between Stoneclan and Rainclan. At the stone stream, there were large round rocks everywhere and barely a tree in sight. The petite tom had almost completely forgotten about it. If I hurry, I should make it there in time.
As he ran, Emberlight spotted the dawn patrol heading back towards the heart of Rainclan's territory. As of right now, Stoneclan had not been a big issue for Rainclan, so the patrols never paid much attention to the borders, sometimes neglecting them completely. It was sloppy, the tom thought, but it didn't seem to matter too much at the moment. Hawkstar was a very respectable leader who did not seem the type to launch an unprovoked attack.
Almost immediately after reaching the stone stream, Emberlight saw the perfect rock. It even looked as if it were sent from Starclan, for the light was hitting it in a way to form a halo-effect. With a giddy smile, the Abyssinian warrior leaped from rock to rock beside the stream until he was on his perfect rock.
With a content sigh, the warrior sat down and curled his tail around his paws, looking out towards the sunrise. The rays of light reflected on the clear water, brightening the whole stream. Birds in the distance had begun to sing. This was the moment Emberlight had wanted to witness. The sun waking up the world with gentle rays of warmth and comfort. The tom himself felt vitalized by the light as it ran over him, the warmth filling up every vein. Breathing in the fresh morning air cleared his mind of all worries, of all conflict. Everything was beautiful, and everything was golden.
A sudden movement caught his eye from Stoneclan's side of the border. Not wishing to open the conversation in a rude way, Emberlight instead decided to take his tone to the opposite extreme. "Hello there!" He flicked his tail to beckon beside him on the rock. "Care to turn a stranger into a friend?"
