Goosejaw had also been one to sit out the recent battle. He strongly believed BloodClan had deserved the attack after all they had done to provoke SkyClan, but in the end it wasn't worth it. His clanmates had endured serious injuries, including perhaps most of all his mother. The longhaired tom was of course worried about Lavenderstar - the Clan needed time to recover, but should also expect retaliation from the city cats. It was her duty as leader to shoulder responsibility and prepare the Clan... and it was Goosejaw's job as her son and loyal warrior to make sure she knew she had his full support.
His usually lighthearted grin gone, the tom stood tall among his clanmates, fixing Lavenderstar with his serious green gaze. "I'll help any way possible - and cover for the cats still recovering from injuries, if necessary." What was a bit of lost sleep if it made sure his Clan was safe? The fierce apprentices and brave warriors who had already put their lives on the line so recently deserved the rest more than he.
