Aspenkit - 510 Words
It had taken little effort to accomplish what she had accomplished, she was just a little over two moons old but already was proving to be just like Creampaw. Some of the more confused elders (and even some that had all of their wits) had called her Creampaw by mistake the past few days, despite her being smaller than Creampaw ever was in the clan. She didn't mind, though. She knew just to nod and smile. She had received the best and worst parts of her sister/mother. She had the same drive to succeed as Creampaw, but also received her troublemaking side. Aspenkit seemed to be the polar opposite of her brother, Juniperkit, sometimes. Her brother was her partner in crime whether he wanted to be or not. But on this particular day she decided she needed to do this alone and left him alone in camp. Creampaw usually slept in the nursery with them, so she was probably still snuggled with her brother for a nap. Her mama kept them warm. She had heard the whispers that her mother was really her sister, but she didn't believe that at all. She looked just like her mama and she was told she acted just like her, so surely Creampaw was her mother.
Which leads us to the point she was at now. While Creampaw and Juniperkit had been sleeping, rather than take a nap she decided to go exploring. Aspenkit was starting to be known for getting out of camp, but she never made it too far, Creampaw was usually right behind her. But this time she was about to escape alone! Did she have a clue where she was going? Absolutely not. But that didn't stop the little kit from having her head held high and traveling wherever her little legs would carry her. The little cream furred kit had blue eyes sparkling with mischief as she traveled.
When she finally stopped and looked around she noticed camp wasn't anywhere in sight. She was still too young to understand how to distinguish scents (really the only ones she knew were her mother and brother), so in a way she was lost. But she wasn't scared yet, she was too excited to be scared. She did, however, see this awesome hiding spot. The huge foxhole was perfect for a game of hide and seek. Maybe one day she could bring Juniperkit here. But right now, she could play and have fun. Who knew how long she could actually be out here without being discovered, she wanted to make the most of the time that she had and use it to her advantage. Was she tired from not taking a nap? Yes, would she show it? No, she was too stubborn for that...another trait she inherited from her mother.
Grabbing a few leaves, she created herself a new game and began to pounce around, mewling at the leaves as menacingly as she possibly could as if they were enemies trying to attack the foxhole.
