✦ Morning draped itself like silken scarves over the magnificent forest of SkyClan, dawning the treeline a gentle glow of silvery-gold dripped like honey from the rising sun. The nursery was full with summertime-born kittens, and among some of the oldest was Viperkit, becoming more and more attuned to waking up alongside the fading of evening hours. His pale eyes opened to peek out the treehouse window at the dewy light filtering through birch and oak leaves, staring for a couple of long moments. He liked mornings, the kitten decided on a whim.
Letting the sleepiness slowly ebb away from him, Viperkit eventually stood and shook moss from his pelt, silently slipping out into the cool dawn air. Eager gaze searched for the remnants of a dawn patrol, paws buzzing with energy. He wondered... how likely would it be for him to get caught if he went out and explored?
