Pinenose was awake before dawn more often than not. He relished the silence and the feeling of the first bit of sunlight landing on his pelt, but what he enjoyed more than that was the view. When the sun crested the horizon, its brilliant rays lit up the lake beneath RippleClan's Camp, creating a breathtaking scene of water that seemed to sparkle with the very stars that had disappeared at twilight.
The small tom laid at the very edge of the rock with one paw dangling lazily over the edge as if he could reach out and grab a star from the shimmering water. He remembered his mother chiding him as a kit when he had plucked up the courage to let his paws over the edge: If you're not careful, you'll fall right off and complete your dive before you've even done your Trial!
Pinenose shook his head fondly. His mother loved both him and his brother dearly, but she seemed to love ruining their fun as kits even more. Of course, she was just trying to protect her sons, but it seemed that at some point every day they'd be pulled from their activities by the tails or scruffs and scolded for doing this or that. Their father had been more fun, though he wasn't around as often, of course; he wasn't nursing them, so he carried on doing his duties as a Warrior.
A small splash in the corner of his eye snatched him from his reminiscing. A rather large fish had just leaped out of the water- well, "leaped" being a stretched meaning. Pinenose fixed his gaze on the area it had happened, eager to see if the fish would do it again.
