strange occurrence

Dec 13, 2019 3:04:41 GMT

       


she could almost still imagine the paws that had grasped at her own paws. how they had been muddy brown, seeking to drag her into the pits of the flooded creek. she could only vaguely recall the events leading up to what happened, but those paws, the absence of her mentor and leader, those had felt so very real to her. she had not even noticed when she awoke nearly two nights later in the medicine cat den, that she had experienced anything otherworldly. 'surely it was a mistake, starclan would not torment me so!' she thought worriedly.

today, the she-cat had finally been cleared to leave the camp. she had been so frighten by the whole ordeal that when she had finally awoken in the medicine cat's den to the black pelt of spiderpaw poking at her, she had nearly tore into him in fright. her scream had been real though, tearing into the sky as if she was being murdered. when they had finally calmed her, having her siblings come in to eat with her and tell her of their worries, she began to realize this was the reality.

berrybloom had ushered her siblings out that night, and sat down with her, asking her what she had seen, heard, smelled. she shivered at that thought, the musky smell was almost hauntingly still in her mind's eye, as was the giant vicious newt. her body shivered in fright, almost wanting to escape back into the camp she had just left. she had almost begged her mentor to allow her the time to travel to the sunning stones alone - or at least with the appearance of being alone. she did not care if he followed or trailed her, but she wanted to ensure to him and herself, she could do this.

paws carefully and cautiously pushing forward, she slipped into the territory with a painful ease. as if her steps would be torn from the ground, but as she made her way through the territory, passed the flooded creek that seemed to almost begin it's freeze, she wondered what would become of her, if stoatstar had truly not been with her. they told her she had fallen into a pool of water, and to her mind, she wanted to pray to the stars a strong sense of thanks for her mentor. today, today is to prove to you i can do this! she thought nervously, moving in a hurried fashion across the territory.

with each pawstep, she grew closer to the sunning rocks, and a warmth spread through her as she finally managed to climb upon one to sit for her mentor. white pelt fluffed against the harsher cold winds. she blinked up into the sky, praying whatever had become of her last time, would stay away. eyes flickering across the territory, she expected to spot her mentor's orange pelt, wondering if she was just not as observant as she gave herself credit for.

The occurrence had almost been as traumatic to him as it was to her. He had allowed himself another attempt to care, or at least another attempt to help another cat, and she had almost slipped away from him. Dragging his apprentice back to camp had been horrifying and exhausting. He had thankfully ran into another warrior with their apprentice and the two were able to assist him just outside of the camp boundaries. They had rushed her to Berrybloom...where she remained unconscious, and with nobody able to help her. 

It had been constant waiting, and watching. He visited each time he passed by, sometimes just silently worrying in the entrance of the den before disappearing into the territory. While he hadn't been able to pinpoint what went wrong, or when, after she had awoke and he had spoken with the medicine cat...it seemed that the strange scent that Dawnpaw had experienced was also the one Blizzardpaw seemed to have been met with. 

The Spore. 

While symptoms had been come and go, it seemed that now they were perhaps getting worse? Although with little to compare it to, Stoatstar could only hope that The Halfmoon would provide Berrybloom with answers, and in turn provide him with ones as well. As soon as the young apprentice was allowed to leave the camp once more, he had readied himself for the journey. He hadn't entirely planned today's activities. Perhaps the white she-cat would lead the training session. He could let her set the limits...after all she was the one who would feel most vulnerable in these woods. 

The ginger tom padded swiftly, knowing very well that he was running later than he would of liked to. As leaf-bare had began to twist it's icy fingers around the clans, Creekclan was beginning to face the effects. A pair of foxes had been scented within their territory, and while he couldn't leave the reports from his warriors, he also couldn't let an apprentice wander the territory without somebody to keep her safe. 

"Blizzardpaw!" He called out as he approached, he didn't wish to startle her, and perhaps the extra noise could be used in this situation. Nobody could be too safe these days.

she froze in her spot for what seemed like all of her moons. white fur bristling at the sound of anything out of the ordinary. had this been any other day, with any other assignment she might have turned tails and ran home. she would have pushed herself into her sister's pelt and cried deeply. however the words hit her almost immediately, the call of her mentor sending shivers down her spin. turning, head cast over her shoulder, her blue eyes caught sight of his orange pelt. 

she knew she should be more aware of her surroundings, but the shock and surprise on her face was clear as her gaze settled on her mentor before her. she was hardly aware of the danger she could be in, with the scent of foxes along a border, here and there. she nodded her head in a silent greeting, almost to scared to voice her opinion or words to her mentor outside of a formal head nod. as she leap down from her rock, she made her way - almost shaking, but still trying so hard to maintain confidence - to him.

"w-will we be hunting? or battle train-training to today?" she asked in a rather rushed, worried tone. while she knew hunting would be a rather strong suit for the she-cat, the training for battle was something she wanted to learn and improve on. she stood, awkwardly trying to stand as tall as she could, to prove she was well and ready for any session to come her way.



sorry its short ;-;

As he approached, the distance closing rapidly between them, his eyes tried to get a better read on his apprentice. It was hard to determine how she was feeling, or to even attempt to guess what was possibly going through her mind. He had never been in her paws, he had never had something happen medically to him...well, aside from a few scratches and scars from Bonestar's reign. But those weren't during his apprentice moons, those weren't during an easily influenced time period in his life. He had already discovered who he was and had a solid grasp on life. 

The surprise on her face was clear, and he only hoped that he hadn't startled her too much. He didn't blame her for the uneasiness.  He couldn't given what had happened. But she stilled was working, she had agreed to meet him for a training session and as she closed the remaining distance, her words proved that she was at least trying. She wasn't giving up completely, and for that he was proud. 

"I'm glad you were up for training. With leaf-bare things are getting tough, and we've had reports of foxes moving it....between those things, I think it would make the most sense to spar today...if that's alright with you?" He tried to hold some sort of respect for her. His viewpoint had changed slightly, though he wasn't sure if he would be able to take it completely easy on her the entire time. He couldn't just completely change himself for others...not that quickly or easily. 

He readied himself for an attack...."When you're ready...give it your best."

her patience was there, the small amount of confidence and determination to show her mentor she could do this was also shinning as brightly as the moon in the sky. but here she stood looking at the older tom with a worried expression that she could not be able to uphold the ways of a creekclan warrior. 'perhaps... they are already planning to get rid of me!' she thought with a worried sigh. she had been out of her mind to think she would do anything along the lines of being a warrior - especially when her own mentor had to save her from whatever her mind had made up. with his eyes on her for a moment, and his acknowledgement to the scents of foxes and sparring made her uneasy.

"i-i'll try my best!

her meow came out less then confident, but honest to a fault. she knew she was lacking in the fighting department and probably always would. when her mentor gave the encouragement to try her best, to allow her to prepare herself, she nodded in acknowledgement. almost to worked up over her nerves to formulate a coherent response. judging her mentor for a moment, she sized up her options. she knew at first that he was twice her size alone and so a frontal attack would probably spell doom for her. flexing her paws, she ranked her eyes over his form for a solid moment before deciding. 

she rushed forward with what little speed she had, forcing herself to brave face as her eyes locked onto her mentor's face. she could feel her gaze shift to the right, already giving away her intention as she rushed him head on. her body shifted, making way to inch towards the right, with her paws inching out to lash at his right side. she only knew that time would come whether he allowed her to strike - or if he pulled away and threw her aside. either way the she-cat was prepared for the feedback.
whoops

Training apprentices had always been interesting to him. You took a very unorganized, and almost unintelligent kit and turned them into a warrior through and through. Or at least, that was best case scenario. Some still came through the other side looking lost and wondering who they were and what they were even doing. Other however, well they were built ready. Their parents had prepared them, they had built an apprentice before they even became one and they had encouraged said apprentice to become the best they could. 

And Blizzardpaw, well...he wasn't sure really where she was in the mess of it all. She had a loving and very encouraging family. They were a large one well known in Creekclan. But at the same time, her sister Jasminepetal seemed to house the same lack of enthusiasm to train. Or maybe they just didn't retain the information well? And he hadn't spent enough time with the brothers to know them well and how they worked. 

As she spoke, he nodded his head, eyes trained on the white she. Battle, in his experience, was not one for the faint of heart. It was brutal, and it required much more than just clawing out at the first cat that ran towards you. It required tact, and a well trained cat. And as she moved towards him, his eyes caught what hers gave away. His muscular legs used their strength to push away from the ground. It gave him control of the situation as he avoided the attack, instead readying himself to counter with a push of his hind legs. He aimed for her flank as he jumped, hoping to come in contact lightly before landing on the other side of her. 

"Your eyes. You must control your eyes Blizzardpaw. It's just as we hunt prey. You can tell a lot by another's eyes. Where they're going, what they're feeling." He spoke softly, trying to instill wisdom in the she-cat without spooking her entirely. He readied himself once more, "This time, keep your eyes from betraying you."

her eyes flashed in fright as the leader's battled harden legs moved. had she been wiser she would of arched away from the tom and spun away, however her panic tore through her as he pushed away from the ground, knocking her flank and causing her to lose balance for but a moment. she knew, however, that a moment of lost balance meant life or death in war and she scrambled back to her paws with a frighten, but wild look in her eyes. she knew in a situation that placed her family in harms way she would not give in to her fear, but a moment, she wanted too.

he spoke of her eyes, and she nodded briskly. eyes, focus on something else. she prompted herself. she straighten herself - for what seemed like the first time since their training began as he advised her to not let her eyes betray you. 'imagine he is between you and your family... if you can not defeat him, he will kill them.' she thought, taking a deep breath she closed her eyes and drew herself into a tight stance. she took a moment to think over the possible options that would cause the tom to falter. badger defense, leap over and bite his ... tail? she thought as her eyes flew open, startling vibrant blue eyes locking onto the tom before her, before her paws pushed her forward most again.

should the move work, the petite she-cat would push off a cat's tail length away from her mentor, leaping over his body, in an attempt to catch the tom's tail at least in her attack. however should he expect the attack, or was quick enough, she knew her body would be flung backwards or side ways should he catch her mid-air.
