A brooding blue-black tabby was padding along, alone, in the forest. He heard something, like a loud bang. Breaking into a sprint, the Tom skidded to a halt when a burning smell came to his nose. Listening closely, he slowly walked forward. Suddenly, he felt a powerful urge an found himself walking in another direction against his will. He stretched his paw out, slipping it under what felt like a string and raising it over his head. A necklace dropped around his neck and tightened to fit snugly, the strand of silk thickening into a band. Just then, he could see but only for a moment, a black gem on the center of the necklace, hangi over his chest. Spooked, the Tom proceeded to hunt down two squirrels and return to camp.
Autumnsky watched as her Apprentice came into the camp with two large squirrels hanging out if his mouth. "Good job." A small object reflected light into her eyes, hanging around the 'paw's neck. "Cobaltpaw, what is that?"
"Don't know, don't care." Cobaltpaw scoffed, turning around to go into his den.
The First Deputy stepped in front of the blind cat, causing him to bump into her. "Where did you find this?" She demanded.
Flinching, the Apprentice got up, growling 'dammit' under his breath. "Also, stop with those strange twoleg swears! They're a load of mouse dung."
"Well, I was walking and suddenly I was walking but not where I WANTED to go, and picked up this thing and-"
"That's enough, Cobaltpaw. Tell me the truth!" Cobaltpaw sneered. Why not let him go to sleep? It was getting late. The Deputy found hersel stepping out of the way, as the sulking Tom went to his den.
Amberpaw's head groggily lifted up to the sound of his brother stepping inside the Apprentice Den. "Hey... Cobalt..."
The Tom scoffed as he curled up in a nest. "What do you want?"
"The gathering is in two days... And then we're doing our test the day after that..." The fiery Tom went back to sleep.
"We'll then," Cobaltpaw muttered as he closed his eyelids over the empty sockets. "...why do we even do that? The only other clan here has been AWOL since before even the elders were born..."
Frostpaw wrapped up a bundle of herbs she had been gathering, pickig up the top in her jaws and reurning to camp. "Huh," she wondered after putting the herbs in their spots. "Butterflypaw isn't back yet."
[Power note for Cobaltpaw- With Darkness he can create illusions and can vanish ito shadows. With Mind he can mess wit minds- creating painful or bad thoughts, controlling others, making nightmares, etc.]
