It seemed that yesterday she herself had a ceremony, though truly it had already been a few weeks. Rookpaw had been an overly excited kit at that moment, rushing out towards Magpiestar with more vigor than most kittens. From a young age she had wanted to prove herself, especially with her mother muttering that she probably would never graduate from kit-hood. Yet she had, and while it had only been a few weeks Rookpaw felt she was doing fairly well!
Rookpaw stretched out on the dry piece of ground she had been cat-napping on under the sun, her full body extending and mouth opening wide. Her fluffy orange tail flicked a few times, catching the light as she leapt forward at the call of her clan leader.
Magpiestar was as he always had been for Rookpaw - large, graceful, and demanding such a presence that it was hard to look away. There had been rumors whispered behind tails and under the cover of a moonless night - rumors that Magpiestar had ruled long enough, that he was no longer strong enough to lead this clan, that his mind was slipping alongside his body. Rookpaw hadn’t known how to respond to such rumors and would look towards her mentor for guidance, as she would in any case from here until she was a warrior (and likely past even that).
Speaking of Otterpaw - The second Rookpaw saw him at the gathering she bounded forward, determined to wipe the edge of gloom away with her winning smile and gentle purr. “I caught me a frog, Otterpaw, you should’a seen!” she whispered to him quietly, not wanting to interrupt the meeting but unable to contain her excitement.
She smiled at him once more before turning to watch the kits tumble towards Magpiestar, purring gently and brushing her shoulder against Otterpaw’s.
Tag: :✶:freya. because Rook loves her Otterpaw <3
Note: Hope me referring to the unease in the clan that will come to head soon is ok? Let me know if not, I can edit.
