Being an apprentice wasn’t quite as…exciting as she had imagined it to be. Shrikepaw didn’t know when she had realized this, but it was some time between her third ‘punishment’, and being made to clean out soiled dens for Shadowfall, and envious watching her foster-brother play around with her mother in the nursery, that she realized she must have missed something. There was absolutely no adventure to be had – no exploring, save for a primary tour of the territory on her very first day – and that was their OWN territory, mind you, no venturing onto other clan’s lands. The rest was – to her horror – actual hard work.
By the end of her first weeks, already her muscles were screaming for mercy – but she dare not tell Echowolf this. Maybe, she thought, if she went and complained to her daddy – but no…that would be worse. She’d be admitting defeat – and probably even Thrushpaw would laugh at her for doing that.
She did her best to try and get comfortable in her nest as she mulled over these problems, but much to her dismay – someone in the darkness had the gall to snore. Would there be no relief, even in sleep?
Grumbling, Shrikepaw picked out a bit of her nest – a pebble that had lodged itself uncomfortably under her back legs – but rather than clearing it out neatly, she chucked it into the air, fantasizing it coming down on the mystery snorer as some sort of divine punishment.
At that at least seemed to help with her mood a little bit.
Carried Home is a Warriors roleplay forum. We feature four clans - all four of which have futures that heavily depend on what your characters do - as well as a 50 word count minimum on RP posts, and a functioning currency and shop.
While most of the action does center around our four clans, members are also permitted to make loners, rogues, and kittypets. You can also make both StarClan and Dark Forest characters.
