Thornpaw's Day Off

Post  Rosethorn95 on Sat Sep 17, 2011 12:51 am



During training Thornpaw made a deal with Phoenixtalon. If Thornpaw could knock Phoenixtalon over, he would get two day's off training and chores, he would also get to go to the gathering. The deal changed a bit when Cherrywing and Hawkpaw interrupted their training. If Thornpaw could beat Hawkpaw he would get all Phoenixtalon promised, plus Hawkpaw would have to do his chores for a week. Thornpaw easily beat Hawkpaw and is now taking advantage of his two day's off.
On the first day off Thornpaw joined a late-night hunting patrol, he got separated from Phoenixtalon when his mentor went after a mouse. He soon found himself face to face with a Alley-way entrance and a mysterious young she-cat. Now it's his second day off and he's decided he wants to solve the mystery of the Alleys.
Who is Mercury? Why did Ravenstrike never return? What threat does The Rogue-Queen pose? These questions run through his mind.

This is a one-on-one rp between Myself and DN. Feel free to read the rp but don't interfere please, or you will feel my moderator wrath.

A young brown tabby tom with intense green eyes slipped out of camp in the early morning. Light snow was falling on the ground, the tom paused to flick a snowflake off his ear. then he resumed his quick jogging pace. His paws took him to the clearing in front of the entrance to the alleyways with haste. As he arrived there, his mind was filled with questions. Who is Mercury? Why did Ravenstrike never return? What threat does The Rogue-Queen pose?

A large brick wall blocked the entrance to the Alleys, Mercury had made it over the night before so it was possible to get over. The scents of the Alleys drifted over from it, sour and dank.

Thornpaw looked up at the looming brick wall. The first obstacle, in his journey. Mercury had gotten over it easily enough. He was sure he could too. He started toward it, running building up speed. Once he was close enough, he leaped and soared through the air to smack straight into the wall. His body smacked against it and he slid down, the wall to land on the snow.

There was a deep chuckle from somewhere along the wall. "You'll never get up that way kid." A voice rasped. A white and gray tom-cat peered at him from the top of the wall. "See that silvery thing there." He said pointing his tail at a trashcan. "Jump on that first, and by the ancestors don't knock it over." He added

Thornpaw glanced up at the old tom. He half-glared at him as he retreated his sore body. Now that he thought abut it, he could faintly remember Mercury jumping over the silvery thing. After a few paw steps he stopped and started running. He quickly built up speed, going faster and faster. He leaped and soared through the air, his paws hit the top of the silvery thing, making a harsh metallic sound ring out. He din't stop there though. He used the impact of the trashcan to farther his next jump. He landed alongside the old tom, panting.

"Hmpf, pretty good for a forest kitty." The old tom admitted reluctantly. "Why's a forest cat like yourself coming to a dump like this?" He asked gesturing to the dark stinking Alley below.

Thornpaw was silent for a moment as he caught his breath then he rasped out "None of your business." He shuffled his paws and reluctantly added "Thanks, by the way."

The old tom twitched his whiskers. "Secretive are we? Ahhh well.. go on, get outta me sight." He growled and flicked his tail. "Careful though, they'll be no place to hide if the Slashers get ya."

"Slashers?" Thornpaw asked, curiously. Now that he had entered the alley's he didn't know what to do. He would have to look for Mercury, he supposed. He glanced out over the city at the sprawling labyrinth that was two-leg place. He glanced at the old tom, wondering.

"Well go on, don't be hanging around here looking like a stunned rabbit!" He snapped, eyes narrowing.
(Mercury's scent should still be hanging around)

"Shut it old man." Thornpaw growled. The wind swished and changed direction. As it did, he caught Mercury's scent, he glared one last time at the old man as he dropped down from the wall, following the scent.

The old tom watched him go. "Hmm Her Majesty will be interested in hearing this." He meowed. He gave a small smirk and made his way across the low two-leg roof's, heading south-east.

Mercury's scent winded deeper into the Alleys, it really was a jungle, with sudden stops and twisting turns, but if he kept track of her scent he shouldn't get lost, although there was always a chance. He'd acquired and extra shadow without realising.

Thornpaw followed the scent padding forward quickly. He was following the scent, but he was sure he had made a few u-tuns for no reason. He understood what Mercury had meant now. This place really was like a jungle. He preferred the forest though, at least he could find his way around there. He padded quickly as the snow fell. He was hoping the snow wouldn't wash away her scent.

Thornpaw's shadow continued to follow him at a safe distance, it was soon joined by several others, two on the roof's either side of the Alley's and two following behind. The snow was falling faster then before, muffling the usually distinct scents of two-leg place.

Thornpaw unknowingly left the scent trail and took a wrong turn into an alley. He followed down it, sniffing. He couldn't find Mercury's cent though. he looked up at a looming brick wall, it was a dead end. He turned around, and his eyes barely registered a dark shadow on the top of a roof, his eyes narrowed.

The cats leaped down from the roof's, their pelts dusted in snow, there was no battle cry, no sounding yowl. There was determination in their strides as the circled Thornpaw. The two-cats who had been following behind strode forward. One was a thick set black, gray and white molted tom, the other was a small ginger she-cat, Thornpaw's age, she had bright green eyes and seemed excited, she had been Thornpaw's first shadow.

Thornpaw growled at them, his claws slowly unsheathed. He crouched down, glancing from cat to cat. His fur fluttered lazily on his back as he glared at them. He knew there was no way he could fight them all off, his only option was to escape. But he had too much pride in himself, to shamefully run away.

"Seems we have a feisty one." The thick set tom growled. "What is you business here?!" He demanded. The other cats watched Thornpaw carefully, they stood lightly, ready for any sudden attacks. The ginger she-cat next to the tom bared her teeth at Thornpaw.

Thonpaw snarled back at the tom. "My business is mine, and mine alone." he growled His tail lashed, and he glared at the ginger she-cat, growling.

"We'll just have to force it out of you. Copper, show him how an true Alley-cat fights." He ordered. The ginger she-cat jumped to obey. Her paws skimmed the ground as she darted towards Thornpaw, teeth bared, claws unsheathed. She feigned right, feigned left then slashed at his right flank.

Thornpaw tried to dodge, seeing the feint for what it was at the last second. But the claws still skimmed his flank, causing a small sharp cut. He snarled as he turned to face her and his fore paw rose to claw at her chest.

Instead of jumping back, like a sane cat would of, she dived under Thornpaw's feet and came around the other side, snapping at his back legs. The thick set tom watched her fight, nodding approval at her moves.

A silver blue she-cat, nigh invisible in the snow, heard the commotion and trotted across the roof's to it's source.

Thornpaw took his weight onto his front legs and he kicked out with his hind-legs at the she-cat. It wasn't a move Phoenixtalon had taught him, but was instinctual.

Copper caught the kick to her face and was thrown backwards several paces. She snarled and wiped the blood from her cheek. "Is that all you have?" She taunted. She stalked around him and darted forward. Her left paw came forward, it seemed to start as a feint then turned into a full force blow at Thornpaw's face.

Mercury looked down at the fight below, confused. She recognised the young tom caught by The Resistance's patrol, but from where?
(Heh, she feigned a feint.)
