A Maple Leaf
It was the half moon, the air was quiet and calm. There was a soft breeze covering the moor, and even that wasn’t enough to disrupt the calm feelings being passed along. A young, jet black tom-cat was following four other cats, he was looking around curiously, gaze observant. “Ravenpaw?” A voice mrrowed carefully.
He looked up to a sturdy, brown tom. “Are you feeling alright?” They continued.
Ravenpaw nodded softly.
“Yes, Oatspeckle...” He didn’t want to admit how nervous he was feeling, as they arrived among the cavern to the moonstone, the medicine cats entered one by one. Finally, it was Ravenpaw’s turn. He had always been a bit weary of the dark, bunching up his chest, he padded in with careful paws.
The travel through the tunnels wasn’t as bad as the young tom-cat had predicted, he had felt Oatspeckle’s presence behind him the entire time he was creeping through the narrow passages. Finally, he and the other medicine cats arrived in the moonstone cavern. Ravenpaw bunched up his muscles, he had never been to the moonstone before, in fact, this had been his first time on the entire journey. He waited patiently.
After a long moment, a sudden brilliant blaze of light shot from the heavens, entering the cavern and illuminating the beautiful stone that stood before them. Oatspeckle looked to Ravenpaw.
“Press your nose to the stone.” He murmured.
Though he trusted his mentor, Ravenpaw felt fear ebbing at his core as he timidly moved towards the glowing rock. The moment his nose touched the cold surface, he felt his entire world fade away.
Phew, this art piece is of Ravenwing, ThunderClan’s medicine cat when Mapleshade was around. We don’t know too much about him, so I used my own imagination (and @gekkozillas
’ herb headcanon) and created this. Though Ravenpaw had been timid upon entering, he was quite disappointed with the herb he had received in appointment. I just kinda took the idea and rolled with it and I’m really pleased with the results! So thank you for the inspiration, @gekkozillas
