For the first time since she joined, the camp was silent. Not even crickets make noise today. Today it seemed like the world was going to melt. Wildpaw felt like a fire in the unforgiving heat. She couldn't even walk outside. Her dark calico pelt radiated the heat from the sun. Although her fur was on the shorter side, she was still hot inside the den. There was no way she was going to do anything.
The heat wasn't the only problem. There was a shortage of prey. All land animals burrowed themselves in the earth to find a cooler place. The sky was bare with no birds or clouds. The sun laughed maliciously at the puddle of cats.
Wildpaw looked at the lazy Larkpaw. She never liked the apprentice much although a terrible conversation would be better than no conversation.
"Liking the weather Larkpaw?" She laughed.
