of all her children, she felt neptunianpaw was the most distant. the most... changed in the past few weeks. she had finally noticed the way he shuddered at the touch of others, the way he shied away from almost everyone but his family. and it wasn't that he was unfriendly but just... distant.
it scared her. truly, it did. having nine children wasn't easy and she tried to make sure she made her rounds, but she began to feel neptunianpaw slipping aaway recently. which was why she sought him out in the meadow where he picked his flowers, blue eyes skimming the pastel colors of the spring flowers. she breathed in their pleasant scent and sighed, looking around for her quiet son. "neptunianpaw? are you out here?"
( neptunianpaw. )
