Chapter 1: I'll Play Later~
Applepaw trotted happily back to camp, green eyes bright as she carried two plump frogs into ShadowClan's camp.
"Oh, look, it's Applepaw!" A deep voice came from beside the apprentices' den, and Applepaw watched as a large ginger tom, who she recognized to be Adderpaw, approached her. "Nice catches."
"Thanks," Applepaw responded, word muffled by the prey in her jaws. She dropped them on the fresh-kill pile, head turning to the nursery as several kits bounded over. The brown tabby let out a purr, "oh, well, look who it is! Silverkit, Sootkit, Dapplekit, Owlkit, Tigerkit, Nightkit, and Seedkit!" The apprentice's eyes widened slightly, so many names! ShadowClan's doing well with kits this greenleaf.
"Wow! I can tell by the fresh scents that those two frogs are your catches, right, Applepaw?" Owlkit, a large brown tom with large, round green eyes mewed in amazement, gazing up at Applepaw. "You're so amazing!" The kit squealed. By his age, and the fact that his eyes were mostly changed to green, Applepaw figured himself and his littermates, Tigerkit, Nightkit, and Seedkit, were definitely to be made apprentices soon.
"Yup; good at pointing that out, Owlkit! You're going to make a good apprentice." Applepaw mewed, licking the kit's forehead. She blinked at him, "well, I uh.. Thanks, but any apprentice would catch prey for the Clan."
"Yeah, but you're the best! I hope you'll be a warrior when we become apprentices.. I want you to be my mentor!" Owlkit meowed, sitting in front of the she-cat.
A low growl came from Adderpaw, and Applepaw noticed him glaring at Owlkit before stalking into the apprentices' den. What's his problem? The little thing's just a kit! Applepaw thought in annoyance, frowning.
"Nothing. How about all of you go play a game?"
"We wanna play with you!" Seedkit mewed to the apprentice.
"She can't, my kits." A muscular, black-furred tom whose eyes were green padded over, a gray she-cat with blue eyes following. "Smokegaze is taking Applepaw training with Mousepaw and I."
Applepaw blinked in surprise, "I am, Crowblaze?"
The tom nodded, "you are. We're going to do some battle training. You can come with us; Smokegaze said he'll be a little late."
"Awww!" Owlkit whined, tail lashing.
"I'll play later, okay?"
The kit pouted, but nodded, "alright, Applepaw."
Applepaw felt like she was being watched as she padded out of the camp, following Crowblaze and Mousepaw closely.
A/n: Yeah, Applepaw's a bit of a Mary Sue in this chapter, but she evens out. Post any opinions you have; I'm open to critiquing.
