WillowClan Camp interacting with: @Hazelrah’s Honeypaw and Stonefall, @savannahssufor The Strangers *spooky finger wiggles* XD
Spidernose made no protest to the order her apprentice was given, even she could see the tired, glassy look in the little tortoiseshell’s eyes, that was why she’d asked, truth be told. She’d hoped it would give Honeypaw enough of a prompt to admit her tiredness, but an instruction from the deputy worked just as well. She bent her head briefly to touch her nose to Honeypaw’s forehead, her whiskers twitching in amusement as she watched the apprentice scurry away out of sight.“Perfectly fine.”
she promised the grey tom, her ears angling to catch any surrounding sounds even as they continued their conversation. If she hadn’t been the camp guard tonight, she might have even been tempted to shuffle just that little bit closer to Stonefall...but perhaps later tonight, when they took their turn to rest. “I think it’s a good idea, keeping the Clan together will give us a sense of security while we’re waiting for-”
She didn’t get to finish the sentence, for suddenly the camp entrance erupted as a small group of bloodstained, wild-eyed cats burst through it. She’d thought she heard pawsteps outside, but with embarrassment, Spidernose had assumed it was simply the fading steps of their patrols leaving. But perhaps not. She was slower to get to her paws than Stonefall by a few mousetails, but the she-cat was soon on alert even before her Clanmate asked it of her.
The group certainly looked
like they’d been set upon by raccoons, their pelts littered with still oozing scratches. Still, she couldn’t smell any racoon scent, even as she opened her jaws to draw in more air and double check. “I don’t smell any raccoons nearby, I don’t think they’ve followed them here, although they could have outrun them. They might still be on their way.”
If there was something dangerous in the area, they would need every able cat to defend their home, so as Stonefall questioned the strangers, she asked. “Should I go and wake Duskwing?”
