The sun was beginning to rise above the trees from where Nightfeather sat in her clan's territory. The waters of the small pool glistened orange and yellow, which was a pretty sight. The black she-cat sat several tail-lengths away from the water, scanning the trees around her patiently. The morning was a little cool, which felt nice in comparison to the warm sun that had been blazing over their territory over the course of Greenleaf. Her dark pelt really soaked up the sunlight, and Nightfeather was grateful for the large pine trees that cast shade almost everywhere. With a small yawn, the she-cat stood up and stretched, he sleek pelt gleaming. Brackenshade had asked her to meet him here this morning, before anyone else would have gotten out of their nests. She was curious of why he would have wanted to meet her, but she didn't question him on it when he had asked her. Whatever the reason, she was happy to meet with him. Brackenshade was the deputy after all, perhaps he had some special duty he wanted her to do? Or maybe he wanted to go on patrol? Either way, she didn't mind. She had always been an early riser, and loved to be up earlier than everyone else. Sitting back down and curling her tail around her paws, Nightfeather's amber gaze found its way towards the path back to camp, hoping that Brackenshade would show up soon.

The dark brown tabby tom slipped through the entrance of the Shadowclan camp. He was delayed because some warriors were starting to stir, so he told one of his clanmates which cats were to go on which patrols. He had left the bleary eyed tom slightly confused. Brackenshade trotted after the scent of the she-cat he liked. The deputy wasn't sure how he was going to say it to her, but he was going to say it. Thankfully she was already waiting for him so he would have some time to think of it.
The black she-cat was sitting near the pool and he smiled when he saw her. The only time he ever let himself crack, is when he is around Nightfeather. He had admired the she-cat from affair ever since they were apprentices. Brackenshade liked how she stood up for herself that one day and showed that other apprentice she wasn't someone to be messed with. She showed him that underneath that kind and quiet exterior is a ferocious warrior, just waiting to be let loose.
Brackenshade was almost purring as he got closer to her. Good morning Nightfeather. He sat down next to her and looked down at her, towering over her. He had always of been big and that worked in his favor with his father. His pale green gaze looked her over, his eyes holding something almost like kindness. The light made the black warrior look prettier. It made her look even kinder but he knew what lay beneath her beautiful exterior. It made him smile as he looked at her.

Nightfeather perked up when she finally saw Brackenshade appear, and the tom smiled when he saw her. She smiled back at him, marveling at the sight. She hadn't seen him smile very many times, and it was nice. The large tom came and sat down next to her, and Nightfeather looked up at him. Even though she was on the smaller side, Brackenshade was still quite large in comparison to a normal-sized cat. The dark tom meowed a greeting to her, and the she-cat smiled. "Good morning!" She returned with a purr. She looked up into his eyes, their pale green depths shined with something akin to kindness. Nightfeather was glad that he was in such a good mood, she was pretty submissive when it came to her superiors, and didn't like to upset them. Her amber eyes shined warmly as she gazed back up at him. "It's quite nice this morning! It's a shame that Greenleaf is nearing its end, I enjoy beautiful mornings like this." The she-cat purred, closing her eyes for a moment to enjoy the warm sunlight that soaked into her pelt. Opening her eyes, she looked up at Brackenshade once again. "I'm curious, why have you asked me out here so early in the morning?" She asked sweetly, cocking her head slightly. Whatever the reason, she didn't mind. Brackenshade was a nice, respectable tom, and she was happy to spend time with him.

Brackenshade smiled and nodded. He didn't have much of a care for whether it was a beautiful morning or not. But if she liked it, then he guessed he would just have to work at knowing what she liked and didn't like, and then saying the right things to make her happy. "We are going to have to have more hunting patrols soon so we have enough prey through Leafbare." The tabby tom noted, looking into their forest as if he could see it coming right then.
When she spoke again, he looked back down at her and smiled. Brackenshade wasn't a tom to get nervous easily, but he had to admit, his stomach was twingeing a bit. He wasn't nervous about her liking him, for he was pretty certain she would accept him right away because of course she would like him. Who else would she be interested in? No one else matched up to him and he was sure everyone knew it. He just wasn't sure how to ask. So, he just jumped right in, his voice nervous at first.
"Well, the thing is, Nightfeather...I like you. I have liked you since we were apprentices and I was thinking we could be mates. Brackenshade admitted and became more and more confident with each word until he was done. He smiled down at her as he awaited her reply, his pale green eyes looking at her almost...lovingly?

Nightfeather nodded in agreement to Brackenshade's comment about more patrols, it wouldn't be long before they would be low on prey. The she-cat watched the deputy, and he seemed to be a little nervous. This was the first time that she had seen him nervous, and she had known him since they were both apprentices. She smiled at him reassuringly, hoping that she could calm any reasons for him to be nervous. It was quiet for a few moments before Brackenshade spoke up, a little hesitant at first. Nightfeather felt her pelt go hot as the tom spoke, her amber eyes wide. He was... confessing to her?? The she-cat felt many conflicted feelings. Brackenshade was a good tom, very strong and respectable. But... she didn't feel any romantic feelings for him. In fact, she had her eyes set on Rockettail. Every day she was building the courage to ask Rockettail to be her mate, so that meant that she had to tell Brackenshade her true feelings. The she-cat swallowed once nervously, and looked up at the tom, her eyes reflecting a hint of sadness. "U-um... Thank you for your interest in me Brackenshade. It really means a lot, you're an amazing tom." She stammered. "But... I must be honest with you, I-I've had feelings for Rockettail for a few seasons now." Nightfeather confessed, feeling sadness in turning down Brackenshade. If anything, he was a good friend. "B-but you really are a great tom, Brackenshade. I'm sorry that I can't see you in that way but... we can still be friends!" Nightfeather said with a nervous smile, a tear in the corner of her eye. She hated to hurt his feelings, but it was better to be honest, right?

"U-um... Thank you for your interest in me Brackenshade. It really means a lot, you're an amazing tom." The tabby deputy puffed out his chest a little and smirked a bit, certain she was going to accept him. She was nervous now but he just thought it was because she was going to confess her feelings for him. Of course Nightfeather would accept him. How could she love anyone other than him? It just wasn't possible. Or so he thought. "But... I must be honest with you, I-I've had feelings for Rockettail for a few seasons now."
That confession and the soon revelation froze Brackenshade. No, it couldn't be. She couldn't love that fleabrain. It wasn't possible. The gray tom was an idiot and didn't respect authority. How could she like someone like that. Someone who was so unlike a true Shadowclan cat. It couldn't be true. Brackenshade was a true Shadowclan cat and she was a true Shadowclan cat at heart. It only made sense that they would be together. "B-but you really are a great tom, Brackenshade. I'm sorry that I can't see you in that way but... we can still be friends!" He hissed through his clenched jaw.
Brackenshade's lips lifted into a silent snarl and he eyes when from almost lovingly, to cold, and now to rage. "Rockettail? Are you serious? Why in Starclan's name would you ever even like that toad?" The dark brown tabby tom stood up, towering over her. His hackles and the fur along his back stood up. The feline pinned his ears. "Why? Why would you go for him when you could have me?" Brackenshade snarled out loud this time, his claws unsheathing and sinking into the ground. His tail lashed behind him. "You still want to be friends after turning me down?" The dark tom laughed. "Yeah right. You'll regret this. Both of you will regret this."
He turned sharply, tail lashing into her face, and stalked back toward camp. He would do something about Rockettail. He was almost there when he slowed slightly, a snarly grin on his maw. No, he would just make the gray tom's life horrible. He'll make Rockettail mess up so badly that Nightfeather would never be able to forgive him, and then she would come running to Brackenshade. He smirked. He might just end up leading her on after that and then crush her heart. Brackenshade smiled evily. Yes, that was what he would do.
