"Yes, of course," Creekfrost murmured, watching the apprentices pad away. Shaking his head slightly he scented the air for prey.
Hollymask took Risingsun his vole, she had forgotten about. "Here, I caught this, just for you, but I kind of forgot to give it to you, so here it is now!" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 00:37, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
Orchidbloom caught a pitiful blue gill, but continued with her fishing anyways.
Violetpetal's eyes immediately brightened, and she continued to pad after the deputy. She tasted the air, in search of any type of prey to impress Creekfrost.
Ashstorm leaned over on the rock. He spotted a nice perch... but, sadly for him, the rock was slippery and he fell into the water with a small splash. He propelled himself to the surface, then climbed out, shaking out his pelt. Thank StarClan his pelt was thick! He looked back into the river. The stupid fish hadn't even moved. Oh, so they got scared when he talked, but not when he fell on top of them?
As Creekfrost scented the air for prey, he noticed something strange about Violetpetal. She seemed kind... but there was something off about her. It was probably nothing. He shook the thought away as he spotted a hawk flying low to the ground. He remembered when one nearly carried him off, but Talonfang and Frecklefur had saved him. Talonfang. He missed her so much, even if she did act pretty crazy.
Hollymask looked flattered. "If you insist," she mewed. "I at least want you to take the first bite." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:11, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
At the sound of a splash, Orchidbloom flinched in surprise and broke her concentration, eyes rounding with surprise as she gazed at Ashstorm. "Great StarClan, kid! Are you alright, not freezing your tail off?"
Violetpetal glanced over at the ebony tom, noticing that he seemed a bit...down now. "Hey, you ok?"
Risingsun nodded, settling down in his den. "Alright, alright, I'll take first bite," he pulled the vole near, taking a little nibble out of it. "...man, you caught a good one..."Silverstar 01:18, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
Ashstorm smiled as his shivered. "I'm better then ever!" he mewed. "Kind of cold, but I hav fur thicker then a tree."
Creekfrost shrugged. At times, when he looked at something, he unexceptedly got flooded with memories of his deceased family. At Violetpetal's question, Sharpstone and Blazeheart came to mind. Why? He could have been a better father, he should have... "It's nothing..."
Hollymask purred, then leaned down to take her own bite. (how many moons until they should have kittens?) Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:22, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
Hollypaw walked into camp, paws light. The pale ginger tabby pointed apprentice should have been able to speak with Hollymask but she was busy so the apprentice sulked. She had wishes that Waterdrop had told her of Hollymask. — Minkclaw 02:28, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
(Whenever you want...the sooner they come, the sooner Rising takes up his apprentice and retires) "Hopefully not a thick skull as well," Orchidbloom teased gently.
Violetpetal, unconvinced, simply blew his sorrow off and moved on. "Ok then...what's their favorite type of prey?"
"Things still going well for you?" Risingsun started thinking about their families. His kits were all giddy about his new mate, but...hers? "So your kits know about...us?"Silverstar 04:02, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
(okay. I think i'll have her execpting in a two rp moons) Ashstorm snorted with laughter, sneezing out water, then crouched on a new rock, which he tested out standing on.
Creekfrost distantly listened. "I don't have one," he murmured, forcing the memories away with a shake of his head. His eyes focused on the hawk again. That would be a nice prize to take back to the Clan.
Hollymask twitched her ears, shaking her head. "I haven't told them yet. I should tell Hollypaw next time I see her... her siblings don't know the news yet," she murmured. Would Lionpaw and Jaypaw be upset? Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 14:08, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
(Fine with me) Orchidbloom shifted on the bank. "Now you've made me want to swim...but I'm no fluff-ball like you."
"Ok, then..." Violetpetal responded with a huff, shifting. She didn't like being around that hawk...
Ashstorm leaned over the water. "So... anything new going on?" he asked, darting out a paw and missing a fish. --- As the hawk flew closer, Creekfrost suddenly sprinted toward it, keeping low to the ground. The bird was focused on a mouse, it didn't notice him. He stopped beside a heather thicket, looking back at Violetpetal, as if silently urging her to help him take it down.
Hollymask shook her head. "They don't know who their father is... you're probably right, they'll be fine, they've heard worse news before."
Windpaw and Jadepaw led the two cats to Slatestar's den. "Slatestar! More loners wish to join the Clan," Windpaw called into the den, unsure if the leader was even there. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 14:59, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
"Not much, just that recent head injury...hoping to get a new apprentice soon." The senior warrior responded.---- The brown tabby stepped back, eyes wide. He was insane!! But...she has to win him over, he had to be hers! So she stalked forward, slowly.
Hollypaw lashed her tabby tail before heading to Jaypaw and Lionpaw. "Hey," she murmured. Jaypaw looked up with harsh, icy blue eyes. "What happened?" He asked picking up on her mood immediately.
"Um..I sort of have some bad news?" She said unsure of whether it'd be bad news to them. — Minkclaw 15:16, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
Ashstorm flicked his tail. "Blizzardheart's going to have kits soon, maybe one of them will be yours. I'm hoping to get an apprentice soon, too."
Creekfrost flicked his tail. "I'll jump on it first, on it's back, then you come in and get it's neck, careful of the talons. Got it?" he told her, unsure if she had ever hunted hawks before. This one was small though, it'd probably be easy. ---- Hollymask chuckled. "You know what I mean. I think Hollypaw said she was going to tell them... I don't know when she is though." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 15:24, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
Hollypaw stayed silent as they left camp. Jaypaw was silent as usual. "Okay, so here's the thing. Uh..Waterdrop wasn't and isn't our real mother." She said, Lionpaw looked saddened by this but not as bad as Jaypaw. Disbelief crossed his face.
"Who is?" He said finally voice filled with anger. Hollypaw and Lionpaw met eyes. "Just tell us." The golden molly said.
"Hollymask. She's our real mother. She lost us during a really bad storm. Waterdrop found us and raised us. Hollymask didn't realize until I told her." Hollypaw said. — Minkclaw 18:54, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
"I suppose that's true...I'm just hoping they're not as reckless as Sunshadow....now that apprentice-training was an experience." Orchidbloom grunted, diving her paw into the water to hook a river perch, only to squeal in pain.
"O-Ok, ready when you are." Violetpetal responded, remaining low to the ground.---- Risingsun nodded, now full, and rolled onto his belly, gently pawing the side of Hollymask. "Are they that Hickory guy's?"Silverstar 18:58, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
Slatestar was in his den, so his ears pricked up when he heard Windpaw's call. How many cats are wanting to join my Clan? Oh well, it's a good thing, I guess. "Send them in, Windpaw," the leader called back. --look me in the eye 19:13, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
Ashstorm looked over to Orcidbloom, worriedly. "What happened?" he asked, padding over to her. ---- Creekfrost watched the hawk, it started to dive for the mouse. He leaped up into it's back, it lt out a cry and fell to the ground. "Now!" he yowled, doing his best to keep the bird pinned.
Hollymask shuffled her paws. "Uh... I... don't know... to be honest... I did meet this other tom, from this Clan, but he died. I doubt they're his though. I'd be really surprised. We weren't even mates. I'm sure they're Hickorywing's."
"Go!" Windpaw shoved Snap and Peridotkit into the den. Snap dipped her head to Slatestar. "Uh... hello. I am Snap, and this is Peridotkit. I believe he is of your Clan." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 19:25, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
Slatestar paused. "I've never seen this cat before." He then paused to sniff Peridotkit, and was surprised - indeed, there was a faint RockC;lan scent. "However, I can smell RockClan on him... so I think you may be right." --look me in the eye 19:29, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
Orchidbloom hissed at the rish she caught, repeatedly slapping its side as it lay there. "Darn thing got me with its spine! Blue gill didn't even do that..."---- Violetpetal swallowed, and jumped for the neck of the raptor.Silverstar 19:32, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
Ashstorm watched. "Is it a Blue gill?" he asked, leaning in to sniff. "Maybe it had a nest or something..." ---- The hawk screeched and flopped beneath him. Suddenly, with force, it spread it's wings and knocked him off, and quickly, flew higher into the sky, away from the cats. Creekfrost stood, panting watching it.
"I found him when he was very young, not even a moon old... if you take him, I'd like to join as well," Snap murmured. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 19:54, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
Shadeflight now back in camp and having told Snaketooth she was expecting rested inside the nursery, sleeping rather lightly. There had been some snowfall but she didn't think it would get very bad. The black smoke molly yawned. She was almost two moons into her pregnancy now and hopefully would give birth soon. You couldn't really tell if she was or not. — Minkclaw 22:21, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
"No, this is a perch," she prodded her catch with a paw, "blue gill do the same thing and cut you with their spines."---- Violetpetal fell with a soft thud, a clump of feathers in her mouth.
Shadeflight sat outside the nursery, it just a few hours before sunrise and she felt as though she needed to take a walk. She knew her kits were safe and asleep; two beautiful tomkits (change if yours is female brams).
Pink-Eyes sighed before going to Shadeflight, his odd eyes light. "Walk?" He asked. — Minkclaw 23:37, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
"Oh..." Ashstorm inspected it. "I haven't got all the fish memorized yet..." he murmured, sniffing at the fish's back. ---- Creekfrost flicked his tail, having regained his breath. "Bad luck," he huffed. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 23:39, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
Ashstorm murmured in agreement. He looked over to the distance. It had gotten darker, and where the sun should be shining in the afternoon was instead thick, dark clouds. He huffed. "Ugh! Looks like a big storms on the way. Can't wait to patrol in that tonight," he huffed.
Creekfrost, noticing the darkening sky as well, looked at Violetpetal. "We should get back to camp. We don't want to get caught in the storm." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 23:50, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
"Sure hope brings warm weather..." grunted the gray tabby warrior, ruffling her fur in the process.---- Violetpetal nodded before sniffing the black Tom curiously. "You ok, though? That drop wasn't ready short."Silverstar 23:55, October 22, 2016 (UTC)
Snow began to fall, and Ashstorm pounced on one of them, like a kit, then licked the water of his pad. Lifting his head, with a proud look, he flicked his tail. "I bet the rivers going to freeze over," he trottedd over to the shore, swiping the icy water. ---- Creekfrost nodded. "Just a brused leg. What about you?" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 00:00, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Shadeflight and Pink-Eyes hadn't noticed the storm heading in until a slight sprinkle of rain started. Dampening the two warriors pelts. Shadeflight shook her thick, longhaired pelt, before narrowing her golden eyes and pointing her narrow snout to the sky. "We should be safe to hunt for a little bit." She told her pink-eyed brother.
Pink-Eyes nodded not really sure, however that wasn't his decision. He knew his sister was a great warrior and a strong one at that. — Minkclaw 00:04, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
"Ick," Orchidbloom watched as the snow fell, wrinkling her nose as if she was disgusted. "...and I bet you that I'm going to break them open so I can get my daily dose of fish."---- Violetpetal shrugged. "Pretty good, teeth just a bit sore from all that gravity pulling on me."
Raccoonmask looked up at the sky, a bit surprised to see snow flakes falling. Wait...wasn't it supposed to be getting warmer? Darn it StarClan...always throwing them curve-balls.Silverstar 00:05, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
"And I'll be by your side as we smash our paws into the ice," Ashstorm promised, pouncing for the snow once more. "I hate the cold, but it's also fun."
Creekfrost nodded. "You shouldn't need to see Risingsun. Let's go," he mewed, leading the way slowly, limping a tiny bit. Meanwhile, Nightshade looked at his stick he had placed. Already, snow was beginning to climb higher next to it. With an 'ugh', he flopped on the ground. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 00:09, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
"Cold weather always seems to make you younger cats spunky..." Orchidbloom let out a soft snort, shaking the snow from her pelt. "I don't get it, it makes me want to sleep for moons, like a fat badger."---- Violetpetal nodded, walking alongside the deputy.Silverstar 00:28, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Ashstorm butted Orchidbloom's shoulder. "You know, I just wanted to thank you. You were more of a mentor to me then Sunfire ever was," he said suddenly, purring. ---- Upon returning to camp, Creekfrost spotted his son lying like a dead piece of prey on his back, then went into the warriors, den, clearly looking for his best friend. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 00:35, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Orchidbloom twitched her whiskers in amusement, gently ruffling the tom's forehead-fur with her paw. "Aww, no problem, kiddo. I think those fish would be a better mentor than Sunfire, though."---- Violetpetal let out a soft huff as Creekfrost wandered off. Whatever...she'd just go bother him again later.Silverstar 00:39, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Ashstorm chuckled, though felt guilty. Although Sunfire wasn't the best mentor, and didn't seem to care for him, he still felt a bit of loyalty towards her. Even though she wasn't a great cat, stole stuff, and kits, wasn't the nicest, she still had her good ways.
Climbing to his paws, Nightshade poked his head into the nursery. "Hey, Mothkit. I'm going to go out before the snow comes. Just find a warrior if you need anything." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 00:50, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
"Ready to head back?" Orchidbloom asked, shaking the chilly snow from her paws. "I don't think we want our fish to freeze...they wouldn't smell really good when they thaw out."---- Caninefang nervously padded out of the warrior's den, glancing around hesitantly. Why wasn't everyone trying to bury their prey for the storm, or sleeping in so they stayed safe? Cats...they confused him, even though he was one of them.Silverstar 00:56, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Ashstorm nodded. He trotted back to the shore and picked up their catches. Then he began to hop back to camp, trying to not step in puddles. --- Creekfrost padded out of the den, failing to find Orchidbloom, he assumsed she was hunting, so he sat down to groom his ruffled fur, finding a feather stuck in his claw. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:03, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Orchidbloom sauntered after the smoke tom, fish dangling in her mouth. Her cut paw left little bloody paw prints in the snow...it'd be easy to tell where she went. Pushing her way into camp, the gray tabby placed her fish in the fresh kill pile.Silverstar 01:05, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Pink-Eyes slowly followed Shadeflight, she was busy scenting the air and all she smelt was the storm heading their way. She squinted through the air as the drizzle turned into a a more frantic rain. The drips becoming bigger and slightly icy. Was this sleet? — Minkclaw 01:07, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Ashstorm flung his prey on the pile, then flopped down in a puddle. "Oh come oh!" he muttered under his breath. ---- Upon seeing Orchidbloom return, Creekfrost trotted up to her with the feather. "Hey, Orchidbloom, I got you a gift for your nest," he mewed, proudly passing the feather over to her with a paw. He noticed blood on her paw, and his eyes widened a little. "What happened?" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:10, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Orchidbloom blinked in surprise. "Thank you! I'm sure it'll keep me 'n my old bones quite comfy." She then traced his gaze and down to her bleeding paw. "Huh? Oh, those darn perch spines...cut my paw while trying to catch it in the river."Silverstar 01:12, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
"Ah," Creekfrost murmured. "Anyway, I was going to ask if you wanted to go on patrol with me, but the weathers getting kind of rough..." he mewed, looking up at the sky. --- Meanwhile, Nightshade left camp. He really didn't care if it was raining or snowing, he wanted to hunt. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:18, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
"Yeah..." the senior warrior nodded slowly, glancing up at the sky. "I'd love to, but for our sake, we best stay inside camp. I'd prefer to not freeze my whiskers off any more than I have to. That, and we should make sure all the youngsters stay inside."Silverstar 01:19, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Pink-Eyes sniffed silently scenting the faint scent of vole, but it was old at least byba day. The pink-eyed white tom lifted a paw just seconds before it went into a small freezing cold puddle. "Uh..Shadeflight the weather seems to get worse and if I'm correct its sleeting." He said.
Shadeflight ignored him. "Just one vole," she urged him, of which he succumbed. Nodding the white tom followed behind her. Always a follower. Shadeflight always having been the leader, taking after her mother quite a bit. — Minkclaw 01:29, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Creekfrost nodded. "Good idea. We have more new Clanmates as well," he murmured, remembering WIndpaw and Jadepaw with the two cats while he had been out with Violetpetal. ---- Nightshade marched through the sleet, ears flat. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 01:36, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Orchidbloom glanced around, trying to spot these new cats. "When did they find them? Are they more adults, or are we caring for more kits?" At this rate, they wouldn't have enough queens for all the kits...---- Rainstorm and Smokecloud were doing their best...Cloudfrost had been squealing in agony, the bright white snow causing her eyes to burn in agony. And now, they rest with her in Risingsun's den, attempting to soothe the pain in her achromatic eyes.Silverstar 01:39, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Pink-Eyes set his white paw down only to still step in a cold puddle. "Fox-dung!" The warrior cursed jumping back before leaping over. Shadeflight let out a soft laugh at her brother. "S'not funny," he grumbled growing irritated over the sleet growing slightly harsh as the minutes pass.
Shadeflight lashed her plumy tail before looking at her brother. "Hurry along, Pink-Eyes." She called to her brother before darting forward through the slowly growing thick sleet. Before long her and Pink-Eyes might have to stop as the storm seemed to be getting slightly worse. — Minkclaw 02:04, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
"Easy Cloudy, easy..." Rainstorm gently pressed into the achromatic she-cat's side, hoping to soothe her pain. Cloudfrost whined softly, Risingsun cringing at the sound of his daughter's whimpers. How much he wished he could help her, how much he wished he could just make her pain go away...but he knew he couldn't.Silverstar 02:10, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Pink-Eyes odd pink eyes squinting against the now silvery-white sleet. "Shadeflight, we really should head back." The queen now irritated snapped at her brother. "Stop being whiny," the white tom flinched before swallowing his so called pride and following his bossy sister. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 02:32, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Smokecloud desperately glanced up at his father, head resting on Cloudfrost's shoulder. "Is there anything we can...?" Risingsun shook his head slowly. "I'm sorry, son."Silverstar 02:35, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Puddlefrost sat in camp next to Wyvernstrike. Since Redstar and Mothfeather had died he'd made an effort to include his half-siblings in his life. After all they were half of Redstar. He closed blind, icy eyes against the cold and felt Wyvernstrike and another cat press close to him. "Poppyfrost," the tom said in greeting to the reitred molly. Although being Wyvernstrike's age had retired after breaking both of her back legs and now she hobbled most of the time. Which had gotten her arthritis from the cold weather. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 02:55, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Smokecloud frowned down at Cloudfrost, her soft whimpers filling his ears, and causing his heart to beat in agony. He didn't like seeing his sister like this...not at all. And even worse: he couldn't do a thing.
"I'm Snap," said the gray she-cat. "And I'm Peridotkit," the kit eagerly piped in before Snap could speak. "He already has a name, but I'd be fine taking a Clan name, I've liked the name Snapdragon all my life." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 13:01, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Raccoonmask rose to his paws in a small stretch, his thoughts driving him nuts. He needed to clear up his head...he couldn't stand thinking about Wolfcry any longer. So the chocolate smoke tom turned, and marched out of RockClan's camp. It was more worse outside than he expected...so bad that he slipped, and slid off into the distance.
Galekit raised her head as she spotted her brother leaving camp, and hurried outside of the nursery. "Coon, wait!" She called for her smoke brother, flattening her ears in defeat as he left her. Great, now she had nothing to do...
Violetpetal sat in the warrior's den, huffing angrily at the sight of Orchidbloom receiving a "gift" from Creekfrost. Not on her watch!! That darn worthless she-cat wouldn't go near Violetpetal's Creekfrost!Silverstar 18:51, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Slatestar nodded. "Sure, you can have that name..." The leader shivered - it was starting to get quite... cold. "I'll get a warrior to help settle you both in." ---- Heathersun was out of camp... not an overly wise idea in this cold weather. --look me in the eye 19:32, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Snapdragon nodded. "Thank you," she looked over as Peridotkit rushed from the den. Without thinking, she followed him. "Peridotkit," she began, but at the same moment, another cats meow said the same exact thing. Looking over, Snapdragon's eyes fell upon a calico warrior. She stared at the kit, eyes wide. Peridotkit stared at her, warily. "How do you know my name?"
The warrior opened her mouth to reply, but no words came out. Peridotkit had returned to her... "You're my... son..." she manged to get out. Peridotkit's wariness melted a little, but still he watched her, with a gaurded look. "How can I believe that?"
Creekfrost's gaze fell on his new Clanmates. "Well, there they are," he nodded towards them. His ear twitched. Stoatscar seemed to be about to faint. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 21:19, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
Orchidbloom traced the black tom's gaze to the newcomers. "...Don't seem so bad yet, hopefully they're not ones for causing trouble."
Galekit fluffed out her coat in worry, the pale tortoiseshell praying to StarClan that her older brother would return soon. Without him, she'd have no family...or friends, because she only ever played with Raccoonmask.Silverstar 21:04, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
After talking for a few moments, Peridotkit did believe Stoatscar was his mother. The warrior seemed to have pulled herself together again, and was now calmly talking to her son. "... So I lost you in that storm," she finished her story. Peridotkit dipped his head, pleased he had found her. "I'm so happy I found you! You'll be special to me, but Snapdragon is my mother now," he purred, glacing fondly back at his friend who shuffled her paws as Stoatscar gazed at her. Stoatscar dipped her head to the new warrior. "Thank you for adopting him..."
Creekfrost nodded, with a sneeze. "They'll be good members of the Clan. The kit is almost ready to be apprenticed." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 21:45, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
(want orchid to mentor him?) Creekfrost twitched an ear as a reply. Stoatscar was looking at the kit a bit oddly. He recalled she had lost her kits in a storm, while trying to return to RockClan from being kept as a kittypet... perhaps this was one of the kits, he looked about six moons old, which was how long ago Stoatscar was said to have lost them. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 22:04, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
(Sure! Shall Thunder return to disturb all happiness?) "Well, I think going to check things just outside of camp, so I can still see, but make sure things are good," the warrior murmured.Silverstar 22:09, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
(yes) Creekfrost nodded. "I can come with you if you want," he offered, eagerly. "But if you want to go alone, that's cool." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 22:24, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
Although a bit of her wanted to head out solo, she could detect the eagerness in his voice, so she nodded slowly. "Ok, sure!" She responded in a cheery voice, turning to exit camp...only to stop dead in her tracks.Silverstar 22:31, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
Creekfrost followed her, almost skipping, then skidded to a halt, almost slamming into Orchidbloom. "What?" he asked, surprised. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 22:35, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
Thunderblaze stood in the camp's entrance, a .3. look on his face, and Orchidbloom reeled away. "...just a rogue in our way." She said tensely, letting out an angry huff.Silverstar 22:41, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
Glaring at the tom, Creekfrost stepped closer to him. "Who are you, and what are you doing here?" he asked, coolly, sick of the fact rogues seemed to just randomly stroll into their camp all the time. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 22:44, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
"I used to live here," the ginger spotted tabby said with a twitch of his ear, gazing resting coolly on Orchidbloom as she scooted off. "She, of all cats, would know that for a fact."Silverstar 22:47, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
"I guess I should know who you are then," Creekfrost sniffed, then turned to see Orchidbloom. He had never seen her act so strangely before. "Who is he...?" he dared asked the question. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 22:50, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
"Thunderblaze, he was a warrior of RockClan." Orchidbloom replied in an unusually sour manner. The ginger tom shifted in his place to stand taller, flicking his tail. "Aw, come on now, Orchidbloom...you know I was more than that."Silverstar 22:52, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
Creekfrost uneasily looked from Orchidbloom to Thunderblaze, looking confused. What had happened between the two warriors? Creekfrost suddenly had a thought spark. Was this... Orchidbloom's past mate? Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 22:56, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
"You were nothing more than an impatient and selfish cat who didn't deserve the title of a RockClan warrior!" A snarl rippled in the gray tabby's throat, and her lips even peeled back to reveal cruel fangs. Thunderblaze twitched his ear once more, unamused, but determined. "I was your mate, Orchidbloom. And I came back for a reason, didn't I?"Silverstar 22:58, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
Creekfrost sat silently, not knowing what to do, although he glared coldly at Thunderblaze. He was a rotten peice of crow-food. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 23:01, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
She didn't respond, but Thunderblaze went on anyways. "I still love you, Orchidbloom. I came back for you, to make up for my mistakes, to...wait for you, forever."Silverstar 23:02, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
This was Orchidbloom's business, this was for her to sort out. Creekfrost got up from sitting and padded a few tail-lengths away, and looked away from the two cats, but keeping an ear pricked toward them in case Thunderblaze attacked Orchidbloom. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 23:06, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
Creekfrost looked back over. It seems to have been settled. He wanted to go over to Orchidbloom, but she may want to be alone right now, so he sat looking at the ground uncertaintly. -- Patch
Creekfrost hastly padded over to Orchidbloom. "Uh... are you... okay?" he asked, looking at his paws. ---- Stoatscar approved of Snapdragon being Peridotkit's foster mother, and had become her friend. Now, Snapdragon lie outside the nursery, watching Peridotkit try to build a tower of pebbles, placing each one on top of the other... very carefully... Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 23:32, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
"Oh. Okay. Good... I'll uh, let you... get back to your ice-work," he murmured, his eyes slightly wide and slinked away, feeling like he wanted to hide somewhere. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 23:39, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
Creekfrost hurried into the warriors den and carefully curled up in his nest, looking around like something was going to attack him. He shuffled his paws nervously and his heart pounded. Was he wrong to have hidden in here? Orchidbloom clearly needed help. What if he made things worse, or what if she was mad at him now? He should go and se if she was okay; there also was a bad storm, she could get lost. If she got lost, then would that be his fault? Shaking his head, he shakily got to his paws. He shouldn't hide, this was Orchidbloom and she needed help. He popped his head out of the den, still looking worried, but content on following her. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 23:50, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
She pushed her way out of camp, glaring against the snow with her fur fluffed up. Once a bit of a distance outside, she flopped down in the snow like a wolf, curled in a tight ball. She was thankful for her thicker fur.Silverstar 23:54, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
Out of camp, Creekfrost followed her pawsteps, which were rapidly filling with snow. "O-Orchidbloom?" he called apprehensively into the snow, though he assumed she wouldn't hear him... Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 23:59, October 24, 2016 (UTC)
She kept her eyes closed, nose gently pressed against her white paws. Someone called her name... was there trouble, or was Thunderblaze, finally here to force things upon her? (Gives me an idea...) "...What?"Silverstar 00:02, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Creekfrost nearly lost his footing when he heard a reply. Quickly, trying to figure which was up and down, he followed the voice, stumbling. He spotted a gray shape curled in the snow, almost too hard to make out in the rapid snowfall. "It's me, Creekfrost," he said, in a rush. Before letting her say anything else, h said, "I'm sorry I ran away, Orchidbloom. I shouldn't have done it." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 00:05, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
(Totally going to do it, and it's going to break our hearts) "You..." the gray tabby trailed off, taking in a deep breath of agony. "...so lucky. All the love you have, you had a caring mate...kits who loved you...a family. I never got to experience none of them."Silverstar 00:10, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
(oh no. what) Creekfrost stared at her, feeling a bit confused. "I'm... sorry you never did... You deserve everything I had..." His heart ached for her. She did deserve it. She deserved better then that... that jerk... Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 00:15, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Creekfrost blinked. He did, he did very much, and he still wished that he could still wake up beside Stoneblaze, or go hunting with all of his kits, but they were all gone now, except one. He lightly brushed his tail on Orchidbloom's shoulder. "It's okay, who knows, maybe you'll have your chance in the future," he tried to comfort his friend. He hated seeing her like this, in fact ,he had never seen her like this. "... Staying out in the snow isn't going to help you though. You should come back to camp and go to your nest and rest, everything will seem better in the morning." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 00:25, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
"I'm only getting older, Creekfrost...before I even know it, I'll be so old that having kits will kill me...But i...I can't have my own furballs...Thunderblaze and I had tried." Slowly, the tabby rose to her paws, walking back towards camp. "I need to clean Risingsun's den, he's busy helping Cloudfrost." (Whyyyy)Silverstar 00:29, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Creekfrost stayed planted in the same spot, watching the storm swallow Orchidbloom up. Tail whisking uneasily he turned and looked everywhere he could see. Everything looked exactly the same. Why did Thunderblaze have to come? None of this would have happened. Why did that stupid tom even exist? All he did was cause trouble. He thought, kicking the snow on the ground with his paw. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 00:35, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
(Ugly-time) Shaking the snow from her pelt, Orchidbloom ventured into the empty Medicine Cat Den. Risingsun and his patients were in the elders den until the medicine den was cleaned...no, she wasn't alone. Thunderblaze stood at the entrance, blocking her escape. With an angry huff, she attempted to push past him, only to thud against his chest. Oh no... "Move!!" She knew he wouldn't, she knew what he wanted...and in the end, after a tough tussle...Thunderblaze won, he got what his dark heart wanted. Unseen, he left the den to rest, leaving Orchidbloom huddled in the medicine cat den, terrified. (Tried to make it as...PG as possible)Silverstar 00:42, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
(oh my) After watching the storm rage, Creekfrost, paws numb with cold, ventured back to camp, shivering. Shaking the clumps of snow from his paws, he looked aimlessly around. Maybe he'd go help Orchidbloom... Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 00:45, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
No no no...it wasn't the fact that she could have kits, no, she was infertile...right? It was the thought that he dared to do such a thing. But Orchidbloom didn't dare to go outside...instead, she just curled in a ball and whined.Silverstar 00:48, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Padding across the clearing, sure his paws may be frost-bitten, he heard whining coming from the medicine den. Uneasily, he poked his head inside to see Orchidbloom. "Are you okay?" he asked. Maybe she stubbed her toe. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 00:59, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Shuffling, the gray tabby kept herself pressed against the cold walls, eyes darting to Creekfrost, and then the ground. "I-I....I'm not too sure if you want to know..."Silverstar 01:02, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Creekfrost, now really concerned, padded into the den and sat beside her. "I do want to know. Something terrible has happened, hasn't it?" he murmured. He had a feeling it was Thunderblaze's fault; well, of course it was. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:01, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
She buried her face into her paws...Dear StarClan, this was one of those many moments when she wished she had her mother by her side again. Orchidbloom was dying to press herself deep into the deceased queen's fur, and listen to her explain why everything would be alright, just like she used to do when Orchidbloom was but a youngster. Not only was this a horrible topic, but it greatly disheartened and embarrassed her to say it. "H-He...did things, terrible things."Silverstar 02:03, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Anger surged through Creekfrost, making his pelt burn as he realized what she meant. "Stop there," he lifted his tail, unable to hear anymore, and he didn't want to make her more upset. "I'm so sorry, Orchidbloom. Where is he? He won't get away with this," he murmured, flexing his claws in and out, hoping he could rake them across Thunderblaze's ugly face. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:08, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Immediately growing frantic as panic flared up in her chest, Orchidbloom raised her head in a quick jerk, ears pinned in her fright. "Creekfrost -no, p-please! If he figures out that you know what happened...who knows what he'll do to you, and then me after that."Silverstar 02:10, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
"There won't be anything he can do to anyone after I'm through with him!" Creekfrost hissed, digging his claws into the den floor. How dare he? He didn't deserve to live! How could he do such a terrible thing, to Orchidbloom, of all cats?! Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:14, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
"Creekfrost..." She gazed up at him with pleading eyes, a frown on her muzzle. "I want to gouge out his throat as much as you do, but...he's stronger than he appears, and there's no proof for...what just happened. If we get caught killing him for one, we'd get kicked out." Orchidbloom shook her head slowly, entire body in agonizing pain. She just wanted to jump off a cliff... "...he deserves to suffer, slowly, emotionally...not physically."Silverstar 02:17, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Rory had been rushing through camp and had bumped into Thunderblaze roughly. "Hey! Watch it!" She snapped before hurrying to Slatestar's den. She watched distantly as Creekfrost came from the medicine den. Shaking her head she headed faster to the leader's den. "Slatestar?" The molly called in. (Insert Sarcasm)Bite Me, Dean! 02:18, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
"If you insist," Creekfrost snorted quietly. "But I don't want you alone with him, I want at least one other warrior with you at all times," he murmured, more clearly. Until he's gone. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:21, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Although she felt physically dead, her humor was clearly not so. "Ok, dad." Orchidbloom murmured, resting her head on her paws once more, breathing shallow from her exhaustion. "...I just don't know what to do."--- Thunderblaze ignored the molly and kept on walking, feeling dreamy. Finally...he'd get his wish, Orchidbloom would be forced to his side...because she'd be expecting his kits, this time, he was certain.Silverstar 02:24, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Creekfrost blinked at her. Not feeling comfortable at the thought of leaving her, he let his head fall on his paws, keeping his icy glare fixed on the den entrance, as if daring anyone to enter.
Meanwhile, Whiskerclaw hopped into camp, shaking out his pelt. Wow, it what a storm! Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:31, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
She had a bad feeling this time, but...she didn't want to inform Creekfrost, she didn't feel like stressing him any further. With a small sigh, Orchidbloom curled herself into a tighter ball. "...I miss the river."
Creekfrost's whiskers twitched. "... If you want... when it's not freezing outside... We can go to the river, and I will swim, really swim with you, instead of flailing," he offered, giving her a serious and amused look. "I do admit, I kind of like it now."
Whiskerclaw spotted his mate and trotted over to her. "Hey! I tried hunting, but it's too cold. I'm sorry I could't get you anything warm," he murmured, with a look of defeat. He looked up from his paws at her. "...Are you okay...?" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:45, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Orchidbloom cracked a small smile. "Creekfish does like the water, huh?" A small sigh escaped the beaten she-cat, her wounds starting to burn a bit, but she ignored the pain. "But you are never going to get me in trees..."
Pumpkinfrost huffed, flicking her tail impatiently. "Am I ok?! Whiskerclaw, I'm pregnant, I look fat!!" The tortoiseshell tabby hissed in her anger, putting her nose in the air.Silverstar 02:49, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Creekfrost huffed a laugh, coughing a little, then regretting staying in the cold for so long. "Don't worry, one day, I'm sure you'll be flying through the trees, faster then a squirrel."
Whiskerclaw nudged her flank. "You're not fat!" he did his best to... comfort her. "Just think about it, soon we'll have mini yous' running around camp. And of course tiny mes, it's gonna be worth it!" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 02:56, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
"More like flying off the tree and to the ground." Orchidbloom muttered, starting to get a bit cold. The old moss wasn't working for her, and it smelled like rotten fish. Struggling to her paws, the senior warrior trudged a few steps off, wobbling towards the fresh pile of untouched moss that she was to turn into nests. "Too cold in this darn den..."
"I can help," Creekfrost offered, padding over. "You need to rest." Meanwhile, Whiskerclaw returned a snort. "Of course I am! It'll be wonderful..." he promised. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:04, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
The stubborn she-cat opened her mouth to argue, closed it, opened it again...then she sighed, giving in. He was right...she'd probably fall asleep standing up before she finished cleaning everything up. "Alright, alright..." Orchidbloom responded quietly, dragging a few pieces off the pile.
Creekfrost gathered some moss, then neatly tucked it into two piles. Afterwords, he stood back to admire his work, then curled up in the nest he had made for himself.
Whiskerclaw sniffed where the fresh-kill pile had been, now drowned in snow. "...Well... hopefully it'll be over soon," he murmured, then a gust of wind brought a bunch of snow into his eyes. He grunted, rubbing it off his face. "And hopefully that will be over soon." Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:14, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Orchidbloom finishd up her few piles before returning to her corner, where she had placed her little bed of moss. She'd have Risingsun look at her wounds later...or now, because he was entering his den now. "All done?" The medicine cat asked, before pausing, looking at Orchidbloom in surprise. "Great StarClan, what happened to you? It looks like you got in a fight with Creekfrost, and terribly lost."
Pumpkinfrost nodded slowly, glowering at the falling snow. "It better end soon...who knows when these furballs will arrive." She let out another bitter huff. "We don't want kit-cles."Silverstar 03:18, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Creekfrost lifted his head as Risingsun entered the den, without a word. ---- Whiskerclaw muttered agreement, spitting out snow. "Anyway, have you gotten your nest all ready?" Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:21, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Orchidbloom twitched her ear at Risingsun's remark, unsure of whether or not she should tell the truth. "Just...went outside in that storm, slipped on the ice and had a nasty ride around the territory. Ran into a tree at the end." The medicine cat nodded slowly. "Ok, ok...I'll need you to stay in here for the night though."
Slatestar, obviously annoyed at the racket that had occurred, emerged from his den and sat at the entrance. I won't tolerate a fight in my camp! Meanwhile, Frozenwind slept in the warriors' den. --look me in the eye 03:25, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
"I'll stay in the den tonight as well, if that's okay," Creekfrost murmured, giving the medicine cat a hopeful look. --- "Great! Let's go in there now, I think my nose has fallen off," he huffed, rubbing his ice-cold nose. Template:Patchfeather14/Sig 03:28, October 25, 2016 (UTC)
Risingsun hesitated for a moment, before sighing in nodding slowly. "Alright, you can stay in here as well. Your eye's fine though, but if you think my smelly den is nicer than your warrior's den, then be my guest." Turning, the smoke tom ventured off to his stores to grab herbs to dress Orchidbloom's wounds. "You don't have to stay in here, Risingsun will be with me, so I don't think he'll try anything."
