moving isn't easy, no sudden change in life is. he still finds himself rising at the dawning skies, an eerie silence from the constant sound he was used to. even in the slower moving days, there would always be a hushed set of movements. perhaps a clucking hen wandering by, the slow gait of a bovine. even in the bitter morning breeze, burro still finds himself stuck in a routine, a subconscious game as his weary bones protest any more movement.

sleeping in was never burro's forte, he slept like the dead and risen to rival a challenging rooster. but now there was simply him, stuck in the stillness that such a morn had brought. settling in to watch the sky lighten, with the edging sun soon to be on its rise. he had never missed a single sunrise, and he didn't see why that should change. hadn't he already experienced a series of changes? perhaps laboring on old habits won't hurt him. perhaps it would be enough to drive the feeling of homesickness away, even for just a bit.

sunrises, something even the most simple of creatures could appreciate. there was no thought behind them, and nothing could describe the lighting off of jagged rocks and harsh edges. he always found them to be a bittersweet reminder of life. how the biting winds would welcome him with a chill to his bones, but the heaven's painting was always worth the endurance of a little cold. perhaps a perfect analogy if he had bothered to think and labor upon the intricacies. but burro wasn't one to dwell on what could be, or what once was. the present had offered so many gifts, and he'd rather not miss them.

 fell in love in october 


she hasn't meant to rise this early, but the sky beckons her awake. the leaders' den is bathed in soft golden light, seeping through the moss hangings. through the stone structure she can see the brilliant flame and violet hues of the rising sun. a chill runs through the air, biting at her nose and paws as she stretches, hefty body slipping from the den into the bright air. a lone figure sits, half shrouded in shadow that the sun has not yet touched. she recognizes the shape, his scent of wet grasses coming to her like a comforting warmth in her chest. large paws plod the earth as she avoids scatterings of snow, destination set out for her. arriving beside the man, she gives him a smile. "mind if i join you, early-bird?" she asks, a soft laugh rising from her chest. 

settling gently beside the man, darkstar wraps her tail around her paws. the earth is silent but for a faint birdsong, the creatures greeting the new day with their cheerful chirps. the two sit in silence for moments, gazing at the sky. "it's beautiful." she comments, glancing at him. "how are you settling in, burro?"

DAISYPAW
shadowclan - apprentice - female - 9 moons - tags


although it was one of the traits she disliked most about herself, daisypaw was such a light sleeper. no matter how tired she was, she always was able to wake up if someone rose from their nest in the apprentice den, or if she heard the early chirping of a bird announcing the coming of the next day outside the den. it was no surprise that she heard the talk of a few clanmates outside the den, and she was opening her eyes to see if she could see who it was from where she sat. but she couldn't; she could merely see their outlines. she could see the beauty of the sunrise, though. interest peaked inside her, but she lay in her nest for a few moments, closing her eyes and resting her head on her paws to try to fall back asleep.

however, she knew it wasn't even worth it to try; she would not be able to fall asleep. with a hearty sigh, she pushed herself to her feet and tiptoed her way out of the apprentice den to go join the warriors. she figured it would be awkward if she saw a few tail lengths away to also admire the sunset yet said nothing to them; she mis well join them, appreciate it with them. the chubby, fluffy molly slowly made her way over to the two, noting it was darkstar and burrogrin.

she didn't know much of burrogrin, and she knew darkstar fairly well since she had previously been deputy under daisypaw's mother. so why did she always get so nervous, so uncomfortable around the leader? was it because she felt judged? since darkstar took her mother's place, a part of her deep deep down almost felt like darkstar had been the one to kill her mom. she knew it wasn't true, that darkstar and brindlestar were great friends, that darkstar was just doing her deputy duty by taking over. but it still felt wrong.

she would never say this to anyone aloud, though.

"good morning all,"   she said softly as she padded up to sit on the other side of burrogrin, giving them both a half-smile and a nod in the early morning.

yet, unlike his usual morning-watches, burro is joined with company. company in the form of kin, rather than a disgruntled whinny or annoyed groans. and he did little to hide the joy, a wide smile breaking onto his dawning features. "well, go right on ahead." there's a subtle shift in his posture, a sudden consciousness of space. inviting darkstar into his space as he left himself open.

there's a gentle silence, but it goes unnoticed by the resident. far too entranced in a sight he sees everyday, far too into the feeling of a blissful cold. his body always ran hot, a searing warmth that could become unbearable to some poor soul saddled next to him. he almost misses the question entirely, but it rattles in his head after a lull. settling in, a funny story in itself.

he had heard of these clan cats, met one as a kid, but he never thought he'd leave that ranch. perhaps he never would have, but the absence of a dear friend brought him searching. "i, ah, get a little homesick at times, but that's expected, right? jus' shows i had a good life there." his tone is light, wistful, but he avoids darkstar's gaze. "not ta' say life here is bad, o'course. just, new. i like it, though." he offers a quick clarification, with a slight panic at being misunderstood.

its gone as quick as it arrives, and burrogrin's head falls to meet the newcomer. gentle, light on her feet, but still welcoming the two. "g'morning kid." his own greeting comes smooth, and he welcomes the girl to his side. "rather' early, ya getting enough sleep?" perhaps it was just him, but kids were always dead-tired in the morning. always lagging behind their parent, leaning against the older figure in a desperate attempt to remedy their drowsiness.
