Howling at half moons [ private training ]

Check out this announcement about new leadership limits in Agrelos
  • Loudpaw was pacing around the sandy hollow, shuffling his paws in the sand below. He was trying his best to stay patient. He knew Sunspots would arrive soon, but Loudpaw was getting antsy. They had agreed to meet in the sandy hollow at sunhigh for a training session. He began to wonder what they would be doing today. Hunting? Battle moves? Whichever one, he was fine with. StarClan knew he needed a lot more practice with both! As he waited, the tabby began to practice pouncing. He would lower his belly all the way to the ground, staring down a crumpled leaf and launching in the air, landing with unsheathed paws on top of the leaf.

  • tDBHRYH.gif It wasn't all that long ago that Sunspots had an apprentice. But now Laureltwist was a warrior and didn't really need Sunspots help anymore. The warrior kind of missed having an apprentice, so she was happy when Loudpaw was assigned to her. She was a bit nervous to get back to being a mentor but Laureltwist turned out fine so this apprentice would to. She just hoped they got along.


    The warrior padded into the sandy hollows, greeting Loudpaw. She was happy they were already here and not late. That was a good sign and she wondered if they were excited to get started. "Hello Loudpaw." the large main coon said, coming to stand in front of them. "How are you doing? Ready to get started?"

  • Loudpaw jumped up when Sunspots arrived and grinned. "Yep! I'm ready." The tabby confirmed, shaking out his fur that had gotten all sandy. "What are we doing first?" He asked, straightening his posture so he could seem more warrior-like. Now it was time to get down to business. Loudpaw didn't want to look like a mouse-brained kit in front of his mentor. Sunspots knew a lot about being a good warrior, and if there was anyone in ThunderClan he wanted to prove himself to, it was her.

  • tDBHRYH.gif She was happy to see that they were lively and excited to get started. Sunspots paused for a moment, wondering what they should do first. "Well, depends on what you already know. Have you explored the whole territory yet?" she asked, thinking that was an important first stop. After that would be learning how to cross the thunderpath.

  • "Oh, yes. I've seen all the important stuff!" Loudpaw confirmed dutifully, curling his tail with pride. Whether it was by sneaking out of camp or going on a patrol with the warriors, Loudpaw had seen the whole forest. His favorite place was Snakerocks. Despite it being a dangerous place to be, Loudpaw liked the thrill of seeing a venomous creature hiding in the shadows of the stones, ready to bite if he made one wrong move. Loudpaw shook his head to clear his thoughts- not now! He stared expectantly at Sunspots, waiting for her next reply.

  • tDBHRYH.gif That was good. Since it was very important to know the territory like the back of your paw. "Have you ever crossed the thunderpath?" Sunspots asked, thinking that was a good next step. Since she didn't want to see any more cats die from monsters.

  • "No." Was Loudpaw's simple answer, his eyes widening. All he had ever heard of the Thunderpath was that many cats get killed there. Nothing ever good came when you heard 'Thunderpath.' Naturally, the apprentice thought it was a good place to avoid. "Why would I need to?" He questioned, tail lashing behind him.

  • tDBHRYH.gif "It's important to learn how to." the warrior started, "There may come a time where you need to cross it. So it is good to learn how to do so safely. There's no need to fear it, but be cautious." Sunspots explained, turning to lead the way. She glanced behind her to make sure they were following and to answer any questions if they had any.

  • "Okay." He meowed simply deciding to trust Sunspots. Though he really didn't want to cross the Thunderpath, his mentor was making it seem like a very important skill to know. So he trotted after her, ears pricked up to detect the deadly path as they got closer to it. "Doesn't ShadowClan live on the other side?" Loudpaw asked, picking up his pace so that he could walk next to her.

  • "They do. But they won’t mind us just practicing crossing. Since they do the same with their apprentices. As long as we don’t run far into their territory." Sunspots explained, nearing the thunder path. Her green eyes looked around as she sniffed the air. ”Do you smell that? It’s a strong disgusting smell, it means a monster passed by not too long ago.”

  • When they neared the path, Loudpaw mimicked Sunspots actions, watching her sniff the air. He slowly raised his head as well, whiskers twitching as he scented the air. When the putrid smell hit his nostrils, Loudpaw wrinkled his nose. "Gross! It's a good thing camp is no where near here!" Loudpaw laughed, reluctantly breathing in through his nose. Hopefully no monsters passed by while they were there. Most of him hoped he never had to encounter one in his whole life. "So... when do I cross?"

  • tDBHRYH.gif Sunspots agreed. It would be horrible to live near a pathway like this. The smell would surely keep all the prey away from here. Though, there were times she found smooched prey from monsters attacking them. "We will cross together." the warrior said, "This is what we will do. Crouch beside the path way, get ready to sprint. We will then listen for a moment and feel the ground below us. If we don't feel the earth shaking or hear anything, we will then run across and don't stop running till you make it all the way off the thunderpath."

  • "Yes. Okay." Loudpaw obeyed, shuffling closer to the thunderpath. When he was close enough, he crouched down, tensing his muscles in preparation for the fastest sprint he would ever make. He narrowed his eyes in determination, straining his ears to listen for any noise. Loudpaw wouldn't say so, but he sure was glad Sunspots would be running across with him for his first time. She seemed real confident, so she probably had done this so many times before now. "I don't think I hear anything..." Loudpaw meowed, leaning forward to take a look at the path. Didn't see anything, either. "I think its safe!" He peeped, and he lunged out onto the path. A wild grin spread on his face, feeling the hot, hard texture of the thunderpath on his pads. His paws thumped along, heart racing at a speed fit for a WindClanner. When he got closer to the other side, Loudpaw leaped in the air, letting out an excited "WOOOOO!" and he flopped down into the grass on the other side. "That was fun!" He exclaimed, proud for having made it across without being killed by a smelly monster.

  • tDBHRYH.gif The warrior was ready to run with her apprentice, but was also ready to stop them if they went to early. It was stressful trying to keep her eyes on Loudpaw and the thunderpath. But this wasn't the first time she crossed it with an apprentice before. He gave the all clear and she agreed. Moving her large body across the tough path and onto the other side. Breathing out a sigh of relief to see they both made it. "That was very good Loudpaw." Sunspots stated, "Now we just need to cross back. When we probably have enough time for one more training thing before it gets too dark. You tired?"
