how much sorrow can i take —
The tribe had fallen silent the past few sunrises. Hushed whispers could be heard between friends or lovers, the almost distant sound of playful kits being drowned out by the sheer weight of what had happened. Sky was gone, and although Current was mostly relieved, he couldn’t stop the ebbing dull pain from touching him, no matter how relieved he was to finally be rid of her. He found no need to make this a big meeting, and really it was more a way of making sure the tribe was functioning right, at least until he started making.. adjustments.
Making his way finally to his speaking point, his appearance of grief fell away to formalities, save a tug remaining of a slight genuine emotion. Not that he would ever admit that, though.
“Tribe, gather around, it’s time we face the inevitable. Sky has passed, and she must be remembered properly. Any ideas can be relayed to me at will,” he began, deciding to just set up with a unifying statement. If they agreed with him first, they were much more likely to go with a second point.
“This leaves me as a lone Stoneteller, and this means i will be making a few mistakes here and there. Whatever I do, however, it will be for the greater picture, please understand that.”
Not a lie.
“I believe we all need a bit to grieve, and thus I’m simply holding off on any other meeting topics as of now, but we will have another’s in the next few sunrises, but until then, feel free to notify me (or chervani) about anything you need added into the meeting.”
The tom took a deep breath to allow for some dramatic silence to ensue, before retaking the floor.
“I just want you all to know that you’re in prepared paws, and I care greatly about the future of the Tribe. Don’t worry about my leadership- I have our ancestors to guide me, and they will not lead us astray,” he ended, purposefully leaving his statements rather vague, if not only to protest that he wasn’t lying later on. He did care, after all.
- any ideas about sky’s death can be translated to current or I
- normal meeting stuff will happen in a few days, since i just recently took control and i’m trying to decide what order to do things and how to play everything out. this gives you all some times to let me know anything you want said in the meeting pertaining to ceremonies or welcomes
-basically current trying to make himself seem cool as heck
