An apprentice, what kind of sick joke was that? Don't get him wrong, Silverburr knew one day that he probably would be looked at to have an apprentice. But, in all honesty he had hoped he did not end up getting tied down to one. He did not mind the younger generation of his clan and in fact kept an eye out for them as they were the future of his clan. He didn't mind kits and apprentices but it was a whole other matter to actually have them as your own. He of course was not going to have kits anytime soon and it was more probable for him to get an apprentice. The thing was though, he didn't know how well he'd work with an apprentice. He was much more used to working with older cats who knew what they were doing. But, he was not used to having to teach from scratch like he was going to have to with his apprentice. Well, maybe. Briarpaw was an apprentice that he knew well enough. A young molly who recently lost her old mentor and was in need of a new one. Why they chose the silver dappled tabby Silverburr would never know. With his recent track record he wasn't sure he would be able to be stable enough to juggle his train wreck situation that ate at him and balance having an apprentice to train. He didn't even know how much training he had to do with her as he wasn't aware of what her former mentor had taught her. He hoped that this would work. He was not used to interacting outside of work so he didn't really know how to deal with an apprentice let alone one who had to change mentors due to some stuff that happened. Would she hate him because he was not her mentor? He worried that she would not like him and would be difficult to train or at the least think she knew more then him because of the fact he was new to mentoring and she had already had some training.
Groaning inwardly the lanky tom rose from where he had been lying in his nest and stretched himself. He needed to relax and think positive...sure. After letting his spindly legs stretch out and get his body loosened up he headed out of the warrior den section and headed towards the apprentice area where he had hoped he'd find his new trainee. He hoped this worked out because if he didn't. He'd have one more thing people wouldn't like him for. Padding his way across he poked his head around trying to find the familiar figure of the pretty molly who despite her rank was actually near warriorhood already now that the other came to think about his new charge.
"Briarpaw are you in here? I was hoping we would be able to go out today for a training session." Silverburr called out calmly.
Was he too calm to the point that he sounded too uninterested or cold? He hoped not; it was of course just his nerves. He'd never trained anyone before and considering how old she was already and not knowing how much she was trained by her former mentor Silverburr did not know where to start or how to start and here he was more worried about the young molly not liking him instead of worrying about how to train her properly.
"I know it's been a minute since we actually saw each other face to face since the ceremony. I apologize, I wasn't avoiding you." he added quickly hoping that she didn't catch onto his awkwardness and make fun of him for it. Last thing he needed was his own apprentice making fun of him like he had been all those moons ago.
Note: Sorry for the late thread! I finally got a bit of muse to work with to start a thread for them.
