SENTIMENT [ stormpaw ]

  • On this particular day, Canarypaw was miserable. The sky was overcast, the air was hot, and Canarypaw had nothing to do. The members of his clan had spent the day lazing around in the humidity and glancing nervously at the cloud-covered sky, While, on occasion, Nary liked to lounge around and do nothing, today was not one of these days. Yes, he felt a little drowsier, and yes, his thick coat was causing him to overheat just slightly, but Canarypaw wanted to be on his feet and doing something. Not fight, though. He was too out of it for that. He was restless and, while he wouldn't be doing any hard work--even he was feeling too tired for that--he wanted to at least go for a walk.


    Despite his aggressive and battle-hungry attitude, Canarypaw was a lover of beauty. Much of his spare time was spent observing his own territory, trying to see which wildflowers had made their home there or which birds were singing in the treetops. Today, he decided, would be a good time to do that, even if the blue sky wasn't painted above it. His paws dragged him across the territory, and he let them, not really paying attention to where he was going, even as he approached the ThunderClan border. No, he didn't cross it--his feet steered him away from doing so, almost like his repeated border patrols had trained them to keep off of their neighbor's land--but he stayed close, his eyes lowering from the tree tops to study the scenery on ThunderClan's land. He wondered what it was like living over there? Their territories weren't so different--oak trees and all that jazz--but ThunderClan was not SkyClan. He allowed his mind to wander as he walked along the ThunderClan border, icy eyes uncharacteristically calm and serene.

    From his secluded spot between the tall grasses under the oak trees, Stormpaw rolled over onto his back. He had nothing to do. He had practiced hunting that morning and he'd even tagged along for part of a patrol. Then he'd gone out to find some marigold and then... he'd had nothing else to do.


    It had been five days since he'd last spoken and he still remembered the way his voice had creaked. It was a terrible sound. Stormpaw would be perfectly fine never speaking again if he could help it. He rolled over to his other side and looked absently across to the Skyclan border. His green eyes widened considerably as he saw a figure walking nearby.


    The tom decided it was best to let the other know he was there and got up noisily, dry leaves crunching under his paws. He even stepped on a twig to really drive it home. The silent apprentice took a few steps forward and furrowed his brow upon realizing it was another apprentice. For a moment he hesitated but ultimately decided to wave his tail in greeting, a small flame of curiosity sparking within him. He knew he should take action before his self-doubt got the best of him and he chickened out.

  • The less-than-silent entrance of Stormpaw definitely caught Canarypaw's attention. As a sort of automatic response, Canarypaw tensed up, the fur on his back bristling to make his small form look bigger. He was prepared to fight if he had to. Of course, this reaction wasn't necessary, as the cat that approached from over the border what anything but hostile. Scoffing at himself, the lynx point let his defenses drop some, his fur lying flat despite his still-tense body.


    Once identifying the ThunderClan cat as no threat, Canarypaw took some time to study him. He said no words--not like Canarypaw could judge too much--but his tail was waving in a friendly greeting. His fur was a bright shade of ginger, leaning towards cream painted with tabby stripes, Three of his four legs were dipped in alabaster, the remaining having only its toes the shimmering shade. His eyes glowed mint, a compliment to the yellower tones of his fur. Long fur, thinner than Nary's but still long compared to other felines, A curious feline. Quite handsome, Canarypaw had to admit--damn him and his weak heart.


    Not knowing what else to do (under normal circumstances, he would attack, but both the drowsiness in his bones and the embarrassed, self-loathing blush under his fur said otherwise), Canarypaw performed a similar gesture, lifting his tail to wave a lazy greeting. Lowering himself slowly into a sitting position--he was still a little on edge--Canarypaw tilted his head, his blue eyes questioning as he gestured towards the other tom, trying his best to say 'Who are you?' in the only way he knew how, save for asking it.

    Watching the striped pelt of the stranger as he padded forward, Stormpaw felt tired. He didn't really want to interact, let alone speak. And a large part of him wished the stranger was a brown tabby, with familiar green eyes. Storm scowled, not wanting to let himself think about Robinpaw any longer.


    So the tom nodded in the direction of Thunderclan and tapped his chest with one paw. That was about all he'd contribute without resorting to spoken word. And if the strange tom didn't quite understand he supposed he'd explain it in more vocal terms. Stormpaw also had to admit to himself that he was interested in knowing where the stranger was from, since the smell of Skyclan was unfamiliar to him.


    Storm raised one eyebrow and looked past the tom to the Skyclan territory behind him, wondering if that's where he came from.
