Rampaw was awake bright and early the day after his apprentice ceremony. By bright, that actually meant the sun hadn’t even risen yet and he was bouncing impatiently waiting for Cougarstrike to come out of the den. Why should they wait for the sun rise? Isn’t it better to get an early start? The dawn patrol was leaving already!
“Cougarstrike!” He called again, much to the irritation of any other warriors unlucky enough to be sleeping near her. The fluffy white tom twisted in an excited circle, and swatted at one of the very few Leaf-Bare leaves left in camp from those moons ago, probably only there because it escaped Shiverthorn’s collection in her nest.
OOC: I had them start in camp but since most of it is in this area the thread is here. This just happened to be how I thought to start it!
Cougarstrike was fast asleep before hearing a voice coming from outside. She quickly recognized it as Rampaw, her new apprentice. She rose slowly and emerged from the den, her joints hurting slightly. She was growing older and the chill of early leaf bare didn't help. She approached Rampaw and sat down. "Okay, let's go on a tour. We are going to the Thunder Trails first. Follow me."
She whisked her tail and started to head out of the camp. She was happy to have an enthusiastic little apprentice that would keep her awake through the harsh season. And give her something to do all day. She was sure Rampaw was energetic, and he would enjoy if she had the same energy.
Rampaw’s eyes widened in wonder at Cougarstrike’s mention of the Thunder Tracks. What were those? They sounded cool, so that probably meant that they were something he was absolutely never to go near. But it is in the territory, sooo…
“What are they?” The white tom chirped as the mentor and apprentice duo headed out of camp, “They are loud, right? Because they’re called the Thunder Trails?”
He darted ahead out of the camp entrance, not even waiting for an answer, but had enough sense to pause and wait for his mentor to guide him in the right direction to where they would be going.
Cougarstrike purred with amusement as she matched Rampaw's pace. "The Thunder Trails... There are huge monsters there. You need to learn to be careful. But they are an interesting sight."
She looked out across the territory, musing over the first time she had toured it. It all seemed familiar now, but it was going to be vast and exciting for Rampaw. She glanced back at her apprentice, sensing his excitement.
