Silverburr was restless, he could not help it any longer. The warm air of New-Leaf was almost stifling within the darkness of the warrior's den. Normally the dappled silver tabby tom wouldn't mind the beautiful change of weather after having such a cold one around the last corner but something in the air was bothering him. He didn't know why. His thoughts wouldn't allow him any rest and he was feeling itchy and hot in his own nest to the point that he had to force himself not to jump out of the nest like it had ants in them or something and dash outside. Instead, he carefully retracted himself from the bundle he lay on and stretched his lanky frame out. He was far too big and lanky for the nest he slept in and it cramped up his long spindly legs; he reminded himself to see if one of the apprentices would like to go out with him later today maybe and gather some moss to help make him a bigger nest. Shaking his head the towering warrior weaved around the other dark shapes around him; careful not to step on anyone's tail as he exited the warrior's den. The air outside seemed no different then inside the den if not a bit less claustrophobic in the more open air. His green eyes peered around at the camp and noticed the warriors on guard and sighed. He hated having to go all commander on them but he really needed out of this camp to gather a peace of mind somewhere else. The night sky was filled with the gentle twinkling white lights of the stars above and the moon giving enough light for the lanky tom to pad his way across camp towards the guards. His face was neutral as he approached; never wanting to give away any unease the LightningClan warrior felt.
"I will be out for a moment, I'm going to make dirt." he lied giving them a nod and slipped through the opening to where they often did to go 'make dirt' as he put it.
He made his way quickly and pushed his way through into the denser parts of the woods before he found the familiar path outside of camp and smirked. He hated lying to his clan but tonight was not a night he wished to be stopped just because he couldn't sleep. He did not need to make an excuse for himself or explain himself to his clan mates. Every cat within his clan needed sometime to themselves and he didn't feel like sharing his troubles right now. So, he had lied and snuck out like a professional. His paws were in charge now though as his mind was in the brink of exploding from the varies of thoughts in his head that he could not focus on where he had been walking to; his paws though seemed to understand and led him to a field with open plains and tall grasses. And the sparkling among the dark green stalks gave him pause. An almost boyish smile graced his features; one he had rare ever used as his green eyes flashed every once in awhile with the twinkling on and off flash of lightning bugs all around him. They were just as pretty as the stars in the sky.
Apparently, his paws wanted to lead him here for some reason. Not the Crystal Creek like he had thought would be his destination as he had loved going there for peace and quiet when he was a young apprentice. No, instead his paws led him here for some reason. He tilted his head watching the bright flashes in the dark every few seconds wondering if this would be a regular routine spot for him at night now. Maybe he'd take a midnight stroll more often to clear his head before bed. He mentally shrugged to himself and took a breath of the fresh air around him. Spotting a rock not too far away he made his way over and jumped up onto the cool hard surface and settled down. His ears picked up the sound of flapping wings and looked up to find dark shapes in the sky. Bats were about hunting the bugs no doubt for a midnight snack. He closed his eyes and listened with his other senses. His large bat like ears picking up the gentle swoosh swish of the grass, the gentle flapping of the bat wings above him, a hooting of an owl somewhere...and paws. Pawsteps? They were to heavy for a prey and he briefly wondered if he would encounter a predator until he scented the air and paused. No predator....a clan mate but the scent was too mixed in with the rest of the earth around him he couldn't pin point who it was quiet yet until he saw the shape stalking through the darkness of the forest and into the light of the moon.
"Owlmind?" he frowned sitting up confused. "What brings you out here?" he asked wondering why she was out here by herself.
