Blackstar jumped down from the high rock, and padded over to Lillyfur.
"Please take Snowstorm and Darksoul on a hunting patrol, the fresh kill pile is getting low." He turned away, and retreated into his den.
Lillyfur sighed. She always ended up on a hunting patrol. She walked over to Snowstorm and Darksoul, who were laying beside the warriors den.
"Come on you two, we're going hunting!" She said with false enthusiam. She padded to the entrance, making sure they were following her, and set off to hunt.
Snowstorm followed her sister and Darksoul silently, her ears flicked forward in search of signs for prey. She was distracted, yet trained on her duty. She soon fell behind on the patrol, and watched her sister and clanmate disappear into the brush. She turned, dropping into a hunting crouch. She slid forward silently, intent on the rabbit she heard and scented in the bush ahead. As she approached the rabbit turned to look at her. She jumped, and she just barely caught it, and bit its neck before it could struggle. She licked her paw and sat back, burying it quickly by the bush. She turned and was startled to see Darksoul sitting there. Her mew came out sharper then she had meant, "What are you doing here?" He stared at her with a roll of his eyes, "I scented the rabbit too, and you just beat me to it. Good catch." He added as he left her sitting in the clearing alone. She was frozen to her spot, what was with him that got to her? She shook her head and turned, intent on the forest sounds around her. She caught a thrush and a mouse and then picked up her prey, catching up with the patrol just as they finished catching their own. Her sister looked to each of them, "You guys ready to get back to camp now?" Snowstorm nodded, still oddly silent rather than her usual sarcastic and subtle self. She followed once more silently and dropped her prey on the pile once back to camp. She then returned to the warriors' den, too distracted to do anything but sleep. She couldn't help but wonder more about the mysterious cat with odd stitched fur that had joined the clan.
