There wasn't much to do in the SouthClan camp, or at least nothing for the young apprentice to do. Granted, he was the medicine cat apprentice so he should have been spending his time wisely to mull over the various herbs and their uses. But that was what the tom had been doing for the whole morning since dawn.
Since his presence there wasn't needed at the moment, Swallowpaw decided to take a quick travel into the forest. He was embarking on a mini-adventure of what little SouthClan territory had to offer. Songs of prey and trees awakened to life by a waning breeze greeted him and Swallowpaw inhaled deeply, the familiar scents wafting around him. Chartreuse eyes gleamed in remembrance of the towering trees and he padded deeper into the dark forest.
The name held true to the landscape as sunlight barely slipped through the dense thickets. Veins of leaves were traced by faint touches of the golden rays, offering a thin concealment of light. Although most of the weather proved to be humid, inside the dark forest, it was somewhat cool and shady. Along with the small peeks of light, heat brushed the forest floor with the slightest contact, like a soft tickle, of humidity.
Swallowpaw stifled a sigh, looking around the shady settings. It seemed as though there wasn't much to do here as well. A fog of irritation and disinterest shrouded him as the medicine cat apprentice conceded with sitting down and waiting for whatever came by.
