Ryepaw had readied herself for the day when Juniperstar would call his first meeting since he first returned. She knew it would happen soon after his arrival, her mother had not taken long to hold her first meeting after returning from getting her nine lives. And yet, despite all her plans, nothing could have really prepared her for the dull ache she would feel hear Juniperstar call out to the clan, and not her mother.
She debated lingering back, hiding in the crowd if she could, but she knew she had to show her face. No doubt Juniperstar would appoint her a new mentor today, since her old one had eventually stepped down as she had anticipated.
