Honeykit


Curiosity had got the better of the young golden haired she-kit; as she had gazed around the camp wide-eyed, her gaze kept drifting back to the same den, over and over. The den smelled heavenly of herbs; lavender, flower petals and something else. She watched as cats entered the den with limps or pains and ventured out with not one instance of pain or agony.

Honeykit was fascinated by the miracle den. The stories of the spore scared her, but perhaps the miracle den was working hard to stop the spore from claiming more. Perhaps the miracle den needed more helpers. Inspired by the idea of a miracle den, the little kit swept her gaze quickly around. No mother, no father. It was clear. She scrambled quickly towards the miracle den, almost tripping up over her own fluffy tail in the process.

Reaching the entrance way, she stood there soundless; her mouth opened wide. Honeykit was in awe about how pretty it smelled and how warm it all felt. Instantly, she felt at home. Honeykit stumbled inside the den and managed to find some supplies. She knew not to touch them - they weren't hers, but she gazed at them in awe. She turned away from the herb supplies and called out, wondering if someone was lurking inside the den. Maybe someone could tell her more about the miracle den. "Helloooo?"

FEATHERPAW

,
That post is the purest thing I have ever seen


Featherpaw had not noticed the curious eyes or the tiny, quiet pawsteps of a tiny intruder within her den. She was far too tired for that. After staying later than she normally would the night before, and having to wake up in the middle of the night to treat an apprentice with a tummy-ache so the more experienced medicine cats could be rested for more crucial matters in the morning, she was far too exhausted to get up at the crack of dawn as she often would. Instead, the young healer had stayed curled in her nest, succumbing to Spiderfrost's gruff insistence at sleeping in a little longer after very minimal protest between her yawns and tired blinks.

Her dreams were not always pleasant - if anything they would usually startle her awake in a panic, or leave her having to stifle a cry for her lost brother. This time, however...well anyone else might say it was boring, but to her it was peaceful. Just a nice, relaxing dream of seeking herbs and practicing her rather fresh hunting skills with Littlebird by her side. Certainly, it was no dream she was in any hurry to leave, for once.

So, when a high pitched voice called out, the apprentice almost ignored it as part of her dream, waving it off as a distant greeting of some imaginary youth in her dreamscape. That was, until another voice caught her ears in response, drawing a reluctant Featherpaw from her extended morning nap. Groggily, the apprentice stretched her jaws in a yawn and blinked her eyes open into the gloom at the back of the den.

"Do we have a patient, Spi-Spiderfrost?" she asked softly, a yawn breaking its way into her part way through his name and forcing her to start if over again. Not that she seemed to mind much. After a moment, though, she decided she must have slept enough to fair fine in her duties, and she could always go to sleep earlier tonight if that proved incorrect. After a quick stretch and a swipe of her tongue over her smokey fur, Featherpaw padded her way toward the entrance of the den, pausing as her eyes caught a shape much smaller and paler than expected.

A kit. After a blink, Featherpaw offered the little feline a smile, mind recalling for a name as she lowered herself slightly to look in the smaller molly's eyes. "Hello there little one, you're Honeykit right?" she asked warmly, hoping she had not gotten the kit's name wrong. "Did you need something?" Truly, she assumed not for the look of awe and excitement in the youth's eyes, but it was still customary to ask anyone who came into their den.

SPIDERFROST

the morning, a time of day in which spiderfrost - for all his woes - enjoyed a bit of relaxation. since the merge, he had been given the task of the later evenings or nights to watch for patients, and mornings were more for featherpaw or flickerfrost. however, this morning they had taken note of their mentor not being around, and thus with a gruff and possibly grumpy tone, spiderfrost had almost tangled the fellow medicine cat into her nest to keep her from getting up. needless to say, he did not perform such an act.

he had a small pile of willow bark beside him, his own personal supply for himself, and as he lazily chewed on the piece, he could hear the rustle of paws and see featherpaw rise from her nest. with a roll of his shoulders to her question, he continued to chew on his bark before lifting to his paws himself. he would have much rather enjoyed having the she-cat fuse over him, than another cat, but with a sigh the black tom moved into the entrance of the medicine cat's den. 

the tail end of what the she-cat was saying was caught by spiderfrost's ears and with a narrow of his eyes he spotted the fluffy orange she-kit just beyond her. honeykit, he thought recalling her birth and how he had been there at the time - alone and frighten at losing someone to the birth of kittens. his whiskers twitched in annoyance, catching the whimsical look upon the kittens face.

"doubtful, perhaps she came in here to steal herbs." the gruff medicine cat meowed, hobbling towards featherpaw and honeykit with a vacate expression. "or she is to distract us while others place sticks or pebbles in our nests." he said, his tone sounding like either he had experiences such a trick - or he had been the one to cause it. he took note of featherpaw, lowering herself to the kit's level, while he himself stayed and remained as if he was towering over them both. settling down into a sitting position, the tom wrapped his tail as if to hide his hind leg once more.

"what do you need honeykit?" he asked more directly now, amber eyes picking at the kitten with curiosity and annoyance.

Honeykit


Taken aback by the amazing sights and smells, the small kit had her head turning from left to right. She took very gentle steps, softly calling out every now and then. Until she heard a voice from deep within the warmth of the miracle den. Honeykit could not interpret what exactly was said but she caught the name 'Spiderfrost' and a very grumbled mention of stealing herbs.

The golden she-kit almost squeaked in surprise when a delicate mottled mix of a she-cat appeared in front of her. Honeykit's features brightened in excitement as she absorbed the other. The mottled she-cat was very pretty, but was still fairly young. Perhaps she was an apprentice. "Wow," she muttered under her breath. When the pale mottled she-cat spoke her name, Honeykit stepped back in surprise. "You know my name!" She cried out. "Did you know I was coming?" She asked, questions suddenly rattling the little curious mind.

Honeykit was so focused on Featherpaw that she barely caught the rest of what Spiderfrost had said, his tales of his past and perceptions that perhaps, Honeykit was a lot like them. When she finally noticed the moonless shape towering over she and Featherpaw, she gasped in awe. "You're... Magnificent!" She said to Spiderfrost; completely missing his disfigurement and focusing purely on his thick, darkly colored fur and luminous eyes. "You remind me of night time," she said.


The small feline was so distracted by the two miracle cats that she had nearly forgotten to answer their question. They both wanted to know what she needed. "Oh," she said, as though deflated and stumped. "Do..I need to need something?" She answered as she tilt her head to one side. The little one couldn't think of anything she really needed. Honeykit really just wanted to know more about the miracle den and the cats that worked..well miracles in there. "I just wanted to see what you do in here. You make miracles happen. I wanted to know more," she said with a slightly shy smile. The little one knew that mother and father were likely a little upset if she didn't return to the nursery soon, but she didn't see the danger in the den. Not at all. If anything, this den seemed like the safest one in the entire clan.

FEATHERPAW

Oml I needed this thread in my life <3


Featherpaw was quick to dismiss the grumpy responses Spiderfrost uttered out about stealing herbs and hiding sticks. She was used to that kind of thing from Flickerfrost, though normally with her mentor it was often threats she never did make good on, but likely would if she were pushed far enough. They seemed a lot alike in that regard, but Spiderfrost seemed even less likely to see his threats through. From her perspective, he just hadn't had an easy life...he needed time, like she did. She would quite happily give it, she knew what it was like to be rushed into a change you weren't ready for.

"I do know your name, do you know mine?" the molly purred back, pleased with the awe and happiness on the little kit's face. Her eyes were so bright and cheerful, full of life...part of Featherpaw felt jealous. She had never known that feeling, never felt so safe and happy as this kit did...no. That time was past now, she was safe and happy here. She would never wish for anything less upon the little kit. "Not this time, you must be so sneaky you evaded even Starclan."

Honestly, it was nice to just play along sometimes. Besides, it was much easier to keep a kit cooperative if one went along with their games, feeding their curiosity to keep them from growing bored and thus destructive. Starclan was a fascinating subject anyway...let the little one wonder. Featherpaw gave the kit a bright smile, before glancing to the side as the little molly's attention shifted to her denmate. The tom was a lot less for smiles and laughter, but she still caught that little glint of curiosity in his eye no matter how masked it was by annoyance. "He is, isn't he?" Featherpaw offered in agreement, still playing along innocently with the kit to keep her out of trouble. Her tail flickered slightly behind her, and she calmly watched the little one's shift in countenance as she realized she had yet to answer their question.

Really, Honeykit was adorable. There was nothing more pure and innocent to the world than kits, Featherpaw imagined, and the look in this little one's eyes certainly seemed intent on proving that point. Honeykit had gotten shy and a little bit uncertain as she admitted she did not really need anything, but was driven by her own curious little mind. Still, Featherpaw only smiled sweetly, casting a side glance toward the tom beside her with a glimmer in her eyes. He was, after all, in charge out of the two of them. She could hardly make the call even if she wanted to indulge the kit, but she could try and sway it in Honeykit's favor all the same.

"Well Spiderfrost, what do you think, just a little while?" The molly cast a glance between the two, before leaning closer to the tom and lowering her voice as though she were whispering a secret, though she did not bother to ensure the kit could not hear her. "I'll make sure she stays away from any sticks and pebbles if you keep an eye on the nests."

spiderfrost
tell me that i'm crazy
[attr="class","roxietext"]he waited what would have been for an impressively amount of time for the tom. he had listened to the she-cats converse until finally he was startled by the tiny kitten's meow. magnificent, she must have gotten into something. the tom thought, his ears drawing back in annoyance as his amber eyes glared down at the orange kitten. is this a sick game this kitten is playing? who sent her here. he pondered, his face masked in a scowl as he stared down at the she-cat as she continued to ramble about his pelt reminding her of the night. he parted his jaws to lash out a sting of words, but was silenced by featherpaw's remark of him actually being magnificent. he swallowed, his eyes flicking between the two with a curiosity that had only been partly there.

miracles happen? the tom stilled at her voice, implying that their den, and therefore they who lived inside, performed miracles. he wondered who had filled the kitten's head with such fluff and such nonsense. even as a kit himself he had known that the den did not perform miracles, and when he had been taken in on his tenth moon, only to find out he would never be a warrior again - he knew it never performed these miracles the kitten spoke of. however, as his eyes caught the older she-cat's for a brief moment, with her request to indulge the kitten, he felt the need to almost snap at her. but his jaws locked firmly close, his chest clenching at the idea of disappointing featherpaw. with the older she-cat leaning towards him, spiderfrost knew he must have looked a fool to the younger she-cat, honeykit. 

his eyes were wide, and his breath stilled, but he listened to featherpaw as she spoke about keeping the kit away from sticks and pebbles, keeping her from the nests. he mutely nodded, giving in to featherpaw's request with an ease that the other medicine cat's would have never been able to achieve. "fine, but if she messes with flickerfrost's stock piles, you deal with her." the tom meowed, looking oddly nervous to be mentioning flickerfrost and stock piles in the same sentence. looking down at the she-kit, he relented and nodded to her. offering a weak, false smile he turned to look at the two she-cats with a wary look.

"might as well put her to work then, with my leg i won't be much help with carrying some of the smaller herbs." he meowed, turning and gesturing for the two she-cats to follow. he settled down near where the storage was, gesturing for the she-cats to get to work. "we need to make a few care kits for skywhisper and lilypaw, but also need to make sure our elders have their own as well. bumbletooth is experiencing his own headaches caused by his tooth again." he rambled on, looking away bored. "he wants to try thyme this time, mixed with a pit of poppy seeds, featherpaw - be a sweetheart and show honeykit what those are. don't forget the bay leaf to carry it in."

sorry for the late reply || ,

Honeykit


The she-kit let out a tiny squeak as Featherpaw purred at the flaming kitten; asking if she knew her name. Honeykit looked a little stumped, trying to recall if she knew the molly's name, but alas, she lowered her head with embarrassment and flattened her two ears. "Sorry," he said softly, "But...I don't know your names," she admitted. She couldn't even recall the name of the magnificent tom. It seemed she had never been relaid their names at all. Honeykit was a little disappointed by that. She had heard stories of the miracle den and had seen many comes in and many come out. But their names were all mysteries to her. She watched the two adult cats with big wide eyes, although she could not hear what the two discussed, she continued to stare around the den in amazement. Honeykit longed to touch all the herbs and piles of mystery items, but she knew better than that. It was an honor to be in the miracle den; if she made the miracle cats upset, she might not be allowed back!

Spiderfrost seemed a little hesitant to accept Honeykit's presence, clenching and remaining almost eerily silent. Honeykit could tell that he was the important cat; the one with the final say. He did seem to radiate experience and authority, she thought as she ran her bright eyes over his long, soft looking fur. It really looked pretty, she thought to herself. As he gave a smile to her, she beamed; matching his smile with a wider, more delighted one. The kit unable to detect that his smile was in fact false. It seemed that he had accepted her presence and would allow her to stay in the den a little while longer, even if she was really probably in the way... "Thank you!" She squeaked a response as Spiderfrost instructed for she and Featherpaw to follow; claiming he would 'put her to work' - whatever that meant? Honeykit hopped over to the tom as he rambled on about care kits and elders. He said a string of names that blurred together for the little kit, but her fascination did not dampen. Apparently someone was having headaches because of a tooth! Honeykit looked to Featherpaw in awe, surprised to hear that headaches could be caused by tooth pain. "You two are so clever," she whispered under her breath. At the mention of herbs, Honeykit excitedly twitched her fluffy tail, waiting to see what these miracle herbs looked like. It seemed different ones did different things.
