she was cold, but she bit her tongue. if she started complaining about the cold, azaleakit would to - and [i]it's chilly[/i] would turn into it's so cold i'm going to die let me write out my will acacia, and the feline wasn't in any mood to deal with a temper tantrum.
did she blame her mother for dying? no. but did she resent her for it? certainly. that crazy loner had taken herself and her sister, and just as soon as azaleakit could walk, they'd run away. the feline had been absolutely batty, talking about the will of starclan, how brindlestar just had to die - her sister had picked out the less gory parts and chosen to believe them, but acaciakit wasn't that gullible. when you died, that was it. gone. zip. nada.
'starclan' was the product of a fear of death. a fear of the inevitable nothingness, the big black abyss that was doomed to swallow up every one of them. starclan was what came out of cowardice, and acaciakit had faced her demons. she'd stared down bigger and badder things than any cat, she'd given up her childhood to raise azaleakit, and she'd never learned to fear because of it. because fear was inconvenient, fear would have left her curled up in a cave somewhere, terrified of sunlight and moonlight alike.
so acaciakit bit her tongue as she stood at the border, black fur dusted and tipped with white snow, waiting for the next patrol to saunter on by.
