Mirrorpaw looked at her paws while she steadily padded through her territory. No, she hadn't told anyone about her meeting with the loner, but it was a good thing, right? If Mist gets chased off your territory, then you won't have a mentor who can tend to you at all times. You will grow weak. Mirrorpaw cast her eyes back before her, as if afraid that she would run into something. With the way the sunlight it the apprentice's eyes, it was shocking how everything was reflected back out towards the world. Her silver eyes were usually like this, and Mirrorpaw was used to stares. But, today, no one was wondering out and around to even take notice that the apprentice was missing. While they're asleep in their dens, you're out training with a loner! She thought happily, her walk turning into a happy trot. Mirrorpaw paused, and scented the air for Mist's scent, which hadn't really grown to much last night, since she last noticed her. Did she leave GustClan territory? Where is she? Mirrorpaw thought, her ears beginning to drop as she thought of the silver and black she-cat, running to another territory, snickering under her breath.
"You didn't scent me," Mist meowed softly, slipping out of the bushes beside the young apprentice. Her silver ears flicked slightly, and she licked her dappled silver and black pelt. "Are you gonna tell me why you wished me to stay?"
Mist had gone over the many different possibilities, each as unlikely as the next. As she was curled in a small ball away from the wind, she had thought about having a family. But family was probably not the best thing for her right now.

The tabby apprentice screeched, whirling around as she sheathed her claws in terror. wait. she thought, It was only Mist, the loner. Mirrorpaw gasped in relief. "You scared me!" The caramel tabby hissed, looking at her paws as she realized how idiotic she looked. Unsheathing her claws, and flexing her paws, she looked up at the loners face. Will she think I'm stupid? Mirrorpaw waited a few seconds before answering the silver she-cats question. "I'm not a great clan cat." Mirrorpaw confessed, looking back at her paws to avoid eye contact. "I'm not quiet, I'm not a great stalker, and I can't fight. All the other apprentice's are far more advanced than I." Mirrorpaw paused, "I want you to train me."
Mist glanced down at Mirrorpaw's unsheathed claws and smiled slightly. There was no need for the apprenice to be scared. "I won't hurt you," She murmered, slipping closer.
"I'm not a great clan cat. I'm not quiet, I'm not a great stalker, and I can't fight. All the other apprentice's are far more advanced than I."
Mist smiled softly, icey-blue eyes glinting. "You can learn, if you put your mind to it. Anyone can learn." Her mind whizzed over the possibilities and snapped on one.
"I want you to train me."
Mist wasn't surprised, and flicked a silver and black dappled ear. "Of course I can teach you, But it won't be the same as a mentor teaching an apprentice." Her eyes glittered, and she looked up. "Are you willing to start now?"

Mirrorpaw felt her entire body, from her claw-tips, to her tail-tip, tingle with excitement. What you don't know is I don't even have a mentor! She thought bitterly, not willing to confess her mentor's neglect for her. "I can train anytime! I have almost no duties at the camp! No one will ever know I'm missing!" She purred, her head buzzing off the sudden mood change. She was bouncing from paw-to-paw, looking like a proper kit in the nursery. She nodded, to show that she was ready, though she seemed to have absolutely no control over her paws. Your eyes. She thought, and looked away from Mist. Some cats took Mirrorpaw's gaze as defensive, as if picking a battle. Mist was the last cat, or loner for that matter, that the apprentice wanted to start a fight with.
