Tiptoe through the murk and mire
✧ ⭒ ♦ ⭒ ♖ ⭒ ♦ ⭒ ✧

 It was another hot day, a day of many it seemed. Murkkit had lost track of the dappled darkness behind the nursery walls. He tried to make due by trying to nap most of the weather away, and as night fell and the temperature became more tolerable, he went about his usual, daily kit-like business.

So as the twilight hours tickled the long day, Murkkit stirred in his nest. Cornflower eyes popped open, not fluttered, energy all at once coming to his limbs as he dipped forward in his nest, stretching wildly while legs splayed in all directions with a delicate little shiver of anticipation. He slowly turned towards the entrance, watching the fading light slip by. Not quietly as peepers croaked their songs not too far away.

With an affirming shake of his smokey blue pelt, Murkkit stepped from his nest and padded towards the entrance to peer out, ears twitching pleasantly as he simply listened to their music. It was nice, but the noise was interrupted by a grumble of his belly. Perhaps a meal was in order.

Dazzlekit was pressed up against Clovershine, all still except for the occasional twitch of a whisker. It didn't matter how hot it was, Dazzlekit was always one to cuddle, but when the gentle rustling of one of his brothers getting up roused him, he couldn't help but open his eyes in curiosity. He saw the blue, smoky pelt of Murkkit peering out of the nursery, not all that surprised that it was him rather than Redkit. 

Dazzlekit prepared himself to get up, but quickly had second thoughts. He was very comfortable snuggles up against Clovershine, but if he called out to Murkkit, she might wake, which meant really the only choice was to get up, and with Dazzlekit, no matter how much he loved his mother (which was a lot), curiosity always outweighed. He got up, as carefully as he could, for despite being a kit he was getting pretty big. Only two moons until he was an apprentice! 

Padding lightly over to the entrance he gently stood on his brother's tail (on purpose), before whispering to him. 'Whatcha doing Murky?

It was a rather hot day in ShadowClan, but Clovershine had been dozing with her kits for a fair while now. She hadn't really been fully asleep, as she could hear her kittens' mews of curiosity and wonder. Clovershine had assumed Redkit was still dozing the same as herself. But regardless she opened her bright blue eyes and looked over at the other two in her brood, letting out a purr to signify to them that she had awoken, or at least got up from where she had been resting.

"Dazzlekit, Murkkit my sweets, what are you two getting up to" The lynx point queen called quietly, glancing down at her third kit before giving him a quick grooming. Clovershine twitched one of her ears and glanced back over to Murkkit and Dazzlekit "Come over here you both, you two need a good cleaning" She added, using a stray paw to nudge her awake kits towards her, managing to pull the closest, Dazzlekit, towards her.

Rasping he tongue over the red tom, she let out a loud purr. As she flattened Dazzlekit's pelt with her tongue, she used the tip of her tail to nudge the odd one out in the bunch, Murkkit. "Come here dear, it's your turn" She mewed as a summons for the blue tom-kit of her brood. Hoping to clean all her kits to get it out of the way, while cherishing the moment for what it was.

 Murkkit was just about to take the first quiet steps outside of the nursery before a small voice interrupted his train of thought. Like popping a bubble of concentration. Wide eyed with kitty brows expectant, he rounded back at Dazzlekit. There was some annoyance in his voice, but perhaps it was just over the fact that he had used the 'cute' name he had given him. How embarrassing!

"I'm nearly an apprentice. I'm just going to walk about camp!" He whisper hissed, tail flagging out above his back. He was about to settle his pelt and invite the red tom to join him but was interrupted as movement controlled his attention. Not Clovershine too!

"Nothin'." He was quick to chime in as he shuffled his paws away from the entrance, all the while stealing a side glance outside. Whatever hopes of exploring with his siblings seemed dashed as Clovershine's paw beckoned. He wasn't sure if Dazzlekit would protest, but Murkkit knew the action for what it was.

Maybe once his wash was over his mother could be persuaded to let him loose a bit. It wasn't like he didn't enjoy a good cleaning, but he was restless. All the better to try and appeal to her good graces. Murkkit approached, perhaps a bit shyly, before pushing his head forward to bump into the she-cat. "Alllllright."

Dazzlekit looked a little heartbroken as his brother turned around with a gaze of annoyance, but he did his best to move on. Dazzlekit stepped on his tail just a little harder in retaliation. 'I was just asking!' he hissed back, but there was no hostility in his voice, it was more out of defense. Dazzlekit's face frowned a little before it looked like Murkkit was about to speak again, but both kits were interrupted by the rustling of Clovershine. 

'No, I'm clean! Super clean!' He squeaked, quickly dodging his mother's paw. He loved to snuggle with Clovershine, but what he did not like was being groomed by her. He was nearly an apprentice! He could do it himself! 

He watched as Murkkit was taken into the paws of his mother, eyes widening as his brother was dragged away. 'No, you can't take him!' he giggled, pouncing onto Clovershine's closest paw and giving it a tussle. Clovershine had managed to get a few licks at Murkkit's pelt, but Dazzlekit was pretty sure he had just ruined any of her efforts with his sudden attack. 

It didn't take Dazzlekit long to realise he was being quite loud, and turned his round eyes over to the sleeping Redkit. 'Oh, I'm sorry. I'll be more quiet!' he whispered, taking an awkward step back from his mother and siblings, looking a little ashamed. He sat down, curling his tail around his paws with a frown on his face.

Clovershine let out a gentle warning huff to the squabbling kittens and flared her nostrils, she did not appreciate any fighting, especially with her kits. "That is no way to treat one another, I expect an apology to each other the both of you" She scolded, her voice soft but stern, as she didn't want to frighten her dear kits, but enough to let them know that it wasn't right to shout at one another in such a scornful way.

"Oh you can clean yourself can you?" Clovershine let out a purr of amusement as she pulled Dazzlekit towards her once more, cleaning up his messy fur with the rasping of her pink tongue over his red tabby fur. "And who is going to make you look all nice when you have your apprentice ceremony? I'm sure you'd be to excited to think about such a thing" She added, finishing the cleaning of the messier, more ragged of her kits. 

The lynx pointed queen let out a gentle purr, before releasing Dazzlekit from her grasp "My mother did the same to me before I became an apprentice, even Palestar got a good grooming once" Clovershine twitched her whiskers in amusement as Dazzlekit noticed his sleeping brother, the queen let out a relieved sigh, happy that her son showed sympathy for his brother. "Thank you Dazzlekit, Murkkit, make sure you don't make too much noise either, let your little brother sleep" She added with a gentle nod of her head. Though she could tell that both of her awakened kits were rather restless, so she had to think on her paws.

"Say, How would you two like to hear a story" A story! Perfect! She thought to herself, nodding to a comfortable sodden nest in front of her for her kittens to lay. "Sit down sweet boys and I will tell you a story if you'd like"

 Despite Clovershine gentle tone, her word no doubt took him aback. In his eyes he hadn't exactly done anything wrong, merely scolded his brother for catching him before he was sneaking out for some fun. "I didn't mean it..." He muttered softly, a paw kicking out at a lingering ball of moss nearby his nest. Such injustice left the kit a little crestfallen.

Murkkit was silent as Dazzlekit and Clovershine shared a moment in keeping sure Redkit wouldn't wake from their antics. With a stiff nod, he fell back onto his haunches, giving wordless indication that he had heard Clovershine, his adopted mother. A story would be fine... he'd accept a story to settle his restlessness, but he kept the quiet thoughts to himself. The thought that she couldn't really tell him what to do or how to act because she wasn't mama.

"I don't mind a story. What kind of story do you wanna tell? A story about being a warrior?" Maybe then he'd understand what the big deal was about. Maybe they'd have their own run in with dangerous cats or incredible animals... What about that hawk that stole Hickorystorms sight?

As his mother scolded him, Dazzlekit looked to the ground with a little shame. They hadn't really done anything wrong. Siblings squabbled all the time, right? He wasn't even mad at Murkkit, he was just defending himself against his brothers words! He wouldn't let anyone hiss at him, not even his brother.

'Of course I can clean myself, look how big I am now! And I already look nice! I might even get to become an apprentice early because I'm so strong already'. Who or what had put this idea into Dazzlekit's mind, we will never know. He had given into Clovershine's attempt at grooming, as he wasn't really looking to fight with his mother. He loved her, held nothing against her and wanted to keep her happy, so he sat there with a sour face as she rasped her tongue over his red tabby fur. 

At the mention of a story, Dazzlekit turned to face his mother curiously. He usually only heard stories from the elders, so this was new! 'Yes, tell us one! Will it be about you? Or Palestar? Or some old dead cat? Tell us a really really good one, or your favourite one. I don't mind!' he asked, gazing up at Clovershine is awe. Story time!

Clovershine watched with love as her kits gathered around her to hear a story and her mind raced to conjure up one that the kits would like or at least one that would be inspiring to the kittens. "Did I even tell you kits what happened to my leg?" Clovershine asked, looking at her stiff and odd angled leg with her pink nose, there was a few scars across it but seemed to have healed in a way that made it rather difficult to use, and something that would make life as a warrior difficult as a whole. 

At her kits' curiosity, she let out a soft chuckle, giving her front paws a few dutiful licks before turning her gaze back to Dazzlekit and Murkkit, using her tail to dampen the noise over Redkit so he didn't get woken up by her storytelling, especially with such an engaging story in her opinion. The injury itself was far from preferable but it would shore make a good story for many moons to come, even when she one day retires to the elder's den.

"Though, it is a little scary, I wonder if you two will be able to handle it" She mewed, a joking, playful notch to her tone of voice, making the idea of the story a little more endearing for the kits who have already agreed. Perhaps she wished to make it more entertaining for them, but she certainly wasn't opposed to telling the tale of how Palestar saved her as an apprentice, it would be good to paint an image of someone her kits can look up to, someone like her dearest sister.

 Murkkit little kitty brows pursed together as he waited for Clovershine to speak. Then she had the nerve to ask if he'd get scared from one little story. Impatience wasn't a very attractive trait for a kit so young. "Not as scary as hunting a snake-worm!" Half mew, half whispered the smoke mink tom, but his eyes were still expectant as he waited some more. "I can handle it."
