It was a confusing blur, but all Mallowpaw knew that the mentor she had been given at the ceremony wasn’t currently able to take on an apprentice and that, suddenly, there was a new one instead.
“Badgerbite, Badgerbite,” she repeated his name to herself. It was fearsome-sounding and she swallowed the apprehension the name gave her.
As if summoned by it she spotted a black and white cat looking around. Looking for her, no doubt. Mallowpaw learned into the nearby sunbeam for comfort and savored the warmth. It reminded her of another cat resting against her, giving her strength. As she lingered there and as the black and white cat came closer it seemed excitement flooded into her. She was going to get to explore the territory, with permission! She never had permission before, and imagined it must be a very pleasant thing if so many apprentices were sure to ask for it. She was going to learn to hunt and if her siblings attacked her she would certainly be able to fight back. She was going to be able to go to Gatherings and meet all sorts of new cats and hear the news, she would be able to be helpful to the elders and hear their stories, she might even be able to gather herbs to help the medicine cat! It would be so fun, searching for beautiful, nice-smelling herbs and helping her whole clan!She might be the best herb-locator of all, since she gathered so many flowers and feathers already! She was jerked suddenly from her fantasies when she realized that the cat, Badgerbite, her new mentor stood before her.
“Hi, hi! I’m Badger-I mean, I’m Mallowpaw, and Badgerbite is my new mentor. Are you he?”
OOC: If it’s okay I thought I’d merge their introductions with the training so they’d get right to business hunting whilst getting to know one another.
