Dovekit opened her eyes, hearing the sound of someone whispering in her ear and battering her side "Dovekit! Dovekit! Wake up! You wont believe it!" Dovekit turned her head to see who it was, and sighed when you saw the black and orange kit bouncing next to her. "What happened now Sunkit?" She asked, but Sunkit didnt answer. She instead ran towards the nursery entrance, heading outside. Dovekit sighed once more and got to her paws, padding towards the entrance of the nursery. Stepping out into the early dawn light she stared around, the ground was cold beneath her paws. She looked down and hissed, seeing strange white stuff under her paws and looking around she saw it covered the camp going far as she could see. She started to bat at it with her paws, trying to sweep it away.
She suddenly looked up, hearing a loud squeak of "Now!" And then she she felt several different cats charge into her from behind and sending her skidding over the ground. She hissed lightly staggering to her paws again, seeing Sunkit with a slightly larger black and white cat, both purring with laughter, obviously celebrating their sucess. "That wasn't very funny" She muttered. At the same time loud screeches start from the apprentice den, as two cats tumbled out one a dull blue the other white and light ginger. "It's snowed!" they cried, tumbling over and over in the snow. One more cat stepped out,his white fur seeming invisible against the snow but the brown patches he had gave him away "Dear Starclan! You two will wake up all four clans with that racket!" He hissed.
Dovekit turned away from the apprentice den, and saw a small gray one scraping a paw across the snow, trying to dig though it like she had, She was about to go help him before she suddenly saw a spray a snow come from behind him covering him in it "Got you!". She saw movement among the snow, seeing the same black and white cat as before "Maybe we should call you Snowfall....Yeah, that's perfect! Come here and we'll turn your pelt into snow!" Sunkit scampered out of the snow, her bigger comrade by her side ,and the gray cat fled the others on his tail.
"Silentkit will make a fine warrior, I can see it in her now." Dovekit yelped, jumping around to look up at the huge black cat towering over her. "Rustyfoot! I didnt see you there..." she muttered, her fur fluffed up around her. "You should watch what's happening around you, perhaps i wouldn't have surprised you so much" said the deputy simply, before padding around her and heading for the warriors den. At the same time as the other warriors piled out, she recognized Whitefire and Honeystorm whos warrior ceremonys were only a few sunrises ago. She quietly scanned though them, seeing Rustyfoot pad out again, rolling her eyes.
"Dovekit." She jumped, turning around seeing Owlfall standing above her, ginger pelt gleaming in the faint light "Where is Sunkit? I saw you leaving but not her." Dovekit blinked up at her a few times "I saw her chasing Rainkit with Silentkit." Owlfall sighed almost straight away "Starclan knows how those two get up to such trouble, I dont know how Buzzardfoot does it." And she padded off, her tail swishing in the snow. Dovekit blinked and headed off after Owlfall, then stopped, just managing to hold back a screech as pain shot up her tail. She turned, seeing Silentkit standing behind her, on her short tail and scowling at her, then letting her go turning and padding away.
Dovekit hissed at her resisting the urge to chase her, turned and headed further into the camp,stopping by one of the dens hearing a voice echoing from the cave "This is not good, it's leafbare, it's snowed and the catmint is nearly all gone..." the voice trailed off most likely having been alone. Dovekit slowly padded in, looking around the dim cave for the source of the voice "Um...Hello?" She called not sure if she should be in here, she spotted, against the dim light, a dull gray cat barely visible,except for bright yellow eyes. The cat was pacing up and down,muttering to himself.
Dovekit frowned, looking at the cat who paced up and down without any notice of company. What kind of place is this? She asked herself,tasting the air, before hissing and stepping back at the sudden barrage of smells, closing her eyes in shock. "And exactly,what are you doing in here?" she opened her eyes, whimpering as she saw huge yellow eyes above her. "I-I was just wondering who was in here..." She meowed quietly, looking up at the figure towering above her. She was beginning to get used to the dimness of the cave yet she could barely see his gray fur against the darkness, but she could see the frown on his face. "And what if you had walked into Branchstars den? He wouldn't be happy to see a small kit wandering around his cave" he hissed down at her, his small tail swishing on the ground. Dovekit thought for a moment, trying to think of a reply "but...this isn't Branchstars den,is it? His is up on that huge rock outside..."
"That's true" He repied "but this is the medicine den, my den!" The cat turned away from her, muttering something, but Dovekit didnt hear him because she had started to bounce up and down "You mean your the medicine cat? I've never seen you around" she squeaked, seeing him turn back towards her and staring down at her "But Owlfall told me about medicine cats and that they really help the clan alot! I think she brought you up, but i cant remember what she said." Dovekit frowned, looking up at him. He purred slightly, in amusement, at this kits sudden excitement. "Mouse-eye. My name is Mouse-eye"
Dovekit squeaked again,completly overjoyed. "Whats it like being a medicine cat, Mouse-eye? I heard they work-" But she was cut off by Mouse-eye, who eyed her suspiously "Why do you wish to know this?" he asked, flicking his tail. Dovekit squeaked slightly "Um...I...I was just curious..." She glanced away not sure of what else to say but when she looked back, Mouse-eye was gone "...Strange." She turned and headed for the exit, as the light got brighter in front of her she couldnt help herself and ran forward in full pelt and crashed straight into someone.
She tumbled over, squealing as she skidded though the snow and closed her eyes, expecting to hit the rock. When she didnt feel her head hitting something solid she opened her eyes, and saw a pair of green eyes and some brown fur. Dovekit screeched pushing herself backwards, actually banging her head this time. She sat up slightly, opening her eyes.The brown kit was still standing nearby "Are you okay,Dovekit?" He asked,padded forward towards Dovekit,Looking quite concerned as he approached her. "Im okay" Dovekit replyed "You just startled me. Thats all." She pushed herself up onto her paws, looking around "Sorry for running into you like that, I didnt see you." Dovekit flattened her ears, and then froze on the spot, turning her head to hear a familar annoucement "Let all cats old enough to catch their own prey gather here beneath the Highledge!".
