[attr="class","bandittttt2"] Since they’d been kits, she was the only one that he ever really looked out for and meant it with every fiber of his being. She was special in a lot of different ways and had been teased for it when they were kits and even young apprentices and Wavestep had been the only real protector she’d had. Their mother was wicked and had tried to hurt her when she was younger, leaving her mentally several stages behind where he was, but that didn’t matter. The tom loved her all the same. He awoke bright and early that morning and stepped carefully around his slumbering mate, looking down at her form only briefly as she slept. A pang of guilt flooded over him from their previous conversation, but he quickly pushed it to the back of his mind and instead nudged the sleeping tabby form that was sleeping in the nest beside theirs.

C’mon Mapleblossom.” He purred softly to his sister, offering her a smile as he rose to stand beside her nest. “Ya promised we were going hunting today, you’re not gonna break it are you?” He said with a soft laugh as he took a step back and waited for the she-cat to rise. He’d made a point to - even in their older moons - include his sister in everything he did whenever possible. It was probably the only truly selfless thing he did for anyone else and he was careful to only let a select few of cats know he did it. Word didn’t need to get around that Wavestep was soft toward anyone. Fawnspots knew but she was the exception to nearly every rule he had, so it made sense.

Once she’d moved, showing she was awake, the tom carefully rose from the spot he’d been seated in before and picked his way out of the den, carefully weaving between his sleeping clanmates so he could wait for his sister out there. He didn’t think she’d like to be stared at this early in the morning - especially since he knew how she was. Curling his tail daintily around his paws, he lifted his head and waited for the she-cat to join him.

Mapleblossom

Mapleblossom slept, her chest falling and rising softly. The gentle call of Wavestep stirred in her ears. She opened one eye slowly, her brother forming in a hazy view. The molly stretched, her limbs sprawling awkwardly across her nest. She watched as her brother made his way out of the den towards their usual spot.

Carefully she rose, trying her best not to disturb anyone. She had made the mistake of waking her clan-mates plenty of times before and always tended to regret it. Apologizing was difficult and she would fidget awkwardly when they got annoyed.

The molly scurried merrily towards her brother, tail flicking sporadically with each step. Each time she got to hunt with her Wavestep was exciting. She knew how much effort he put into including her and the appreciation she felt was endless. Mapleblossom loved her brother more than anything, even if she had a funny way of showing it.

“Hi, Wavestep! I missed you!” Their eyes met for only a mere second before she had to look away. Sometimes when she slept, she missed her brother. It was strange and she knew it, but she couldn’t help but express it.

“Do you think we’ll catch something good today?”

[attr="class","bandittttt2"] Wavestep always put in extra effort to help Mapleblossom feel like she was normal. In part, it was because he knew that she wasn’t, but it also had to do with the fact that he wanted her to believe she was. He didn’t want her to struggle or be saddened by what their mother had done to her all those moons ago. He’d been the luckiest of their litter, but he didn’t dare treat Mapleblossom any different because of it. He loved her unconditionally and would do anything for the tabby she-cat, it didn’t matter what it was, she only needed to ask.

Offering a smile as she scrambled over to meet him and she met his eyes in greeting, the tom couldn’t help but swell slightly in pride that she’d done it. She struggled with many things, so when he saw her trying, it meant so much more to him. The snowy bengal flicked his tail gently against her shoulder and gave her a soft lick over her ear. “I know ya did, I’m pretty great.” He teased softly before rising to his paws and leading the way out of camp.

As she questioned whether or not they’d catch something good today, the tom chuckled and thought hard about it. “I don’t know, to be honest. But we can try! Where do you think we should hunt today? You get to pick.” He said with a smile, casting his gaze over toward his sibling as he waited for her reply.

Mapleblossom

Mapleblossom beamed at his playful teasing, batting him lightly on his side. It had taken her a while to get used to teasing, but once she understood it and didn’t take everything so literally, she was able to quite enjoy it.

She trailed him out of the camp, her eyes glued to the ground inspecting the Earth as she walked.

“I think we should try the forest today. There's some good stuff up there sometimes!”

The dirt had been splintered. The chilly air had cooled and dried it out in places, creating intricate patterns she could trace with her eyes. She found it quite soothing. A positive distraction from all the stimulation the world had to offer.

“Wavestep, what’s your favorite season? I love leaf-bare even though it’s hard sometimes.”

[attr="class","bandittttt2"] Wavestep was pleased to see the way that Mapleblossom provided a good place for them to hunt. Much like a proud mentor, the tom puffed his chest out and nodded, signalling with his tail that she should lead the way. It surprised him - and disappointed him - that more didn’t give his sister the chance she truly deserved to be a strong member of the clan. While she worked hard (harder than anyone else, if you asked him) and far more loyal than he would ever be, it seemed that she was always overlooked. But that didn’t matter now.

Quickening his pace, the bengal tom rushed his pelt along hers as they walked, giving her a smile as he they padded through the snow. He ignored the cold that pricked at his feet, focusing only on the trail they walked. “What do you want to catch today? Anything tickling your fancy?” He asked thoughtfully as he looked toward her. His eyes cast downward toward the ground, noting the way she watched it as she walked before looking back up to watch their path ahead. Occasionally he’d lean lightly into her side to steer her away from an obstacle - mostly thick undergrowth large stones that peppered the moors they walked.

Her question caught him slightly off guard and the tom arched his brow, pondering his response. Favorite season? “Hmm. I suppose… leaf-fall. I like the way the trees change colors. What makes you like leaf-bare?” He said with a smirk.
