Warriors: Cats of the Sun

[PRP] We All Have Quirks [Sunstone x Tremble]

By all accounts, it was a lovely day. The sun was high in the sky and the trees were full of green leaves that swayed in the gentle breeze. Yet something was missing. Today had the potential to be a perfect day once the missing something was found but.. what was it that was missing?

Sunstone trotted slowly through the tall grasses and weeds that had grown up around the abandoned twoleg nest. He had already searched the surrounding woods for his missing something but had no success in finding whatever it was so he pressed on. Maybe what he was searching for was in this strange place. Being unfamiliar with twolegs and their nests, Sunstone wandered around the dilapidated building a few times before finding the way in. While he could see how it would be a benefit in bad weather, the whole closed space made him feel strangely uncomfortable on the whole so the brown and tan male decided to search elsewhere.

So focused on the strange nest and getting out of it, Sunstone wasn't exactly watching where he was going and ran into something. Or someone.

Tremble was a cat who rather loved the two leg nests. Not with two legs in them, mind you, but the ability to be covered, sheltered from seemingly everything? Well it just felt comforting.

At this moment, however, she was not in her usual spot of an abandoned two leg shed. She was out hunting, foraging around and enjoying a bit of the sun when something bumbled into her.

With a startled yowl, Tremble was about six feet in the air, fur on end as she landed on her paws, tail puffed out like a pinecone, ears flat against her head, eyes wide, trembling. She spun around, ready to flee back to her home (not to see what ran into her) and came almost nose to chest (because she was so low to the ground trembling) with a big , fluffy and tough looking tomcat.

Gulping, she opened her mouth but really...no words came out. Just fear in her big round orbs for eyes.

With a blink and a half step back, Sunstone watched the cat he'd accidently run into give a startled jump before turning to him. Oh, it was a she-cat. A tiny scared she-cat. Why was she scared? Was there danger nearby? Looking around, he quickly scanned the area for danger but saw nothing out of the ordinary. Strange. He was just about to ask her what she was afraid of when a thought occurred to him.

"Oh. How perfect, it's you." Sunstone said with a kind smile. This was exactly the something he'd been looking for to make his day perfect - a cat to keep him company. "I've been looking for you all day." His smile broadened as he lowered himself to the ground to be eye level with the she-cat so that he could ask his questions. "Where have you been? Were you hiding? You look scared, is there something to fear nearby?" Growing up without many interactions with other cats, Sunstone tended to forget that giving ones name was part of common introductions.

It was her?

Blinking, Tremble moved her head slowly, glancing around, her tail curled and pressed tight to her sides. Was he really talking to her---oh ohoh yeahhe was down at her level now, yup, he was talking to her. Okkkayy okay okay,,, okaay don't panic... aahh breath..breath Tremble BREATH!

Not realizing she had been holding her breath she gasped and took in a huge amount of air, trying her best to steady her beating heart and pounding chest, blinking at him slowly. "I...I....me? I... w-wahhs hunting... is this your terr--- Do you li-- I've never se-s-s-e------- WHO?!" she finally managed to spit out, her toebeans going wide from the exertion before she settled down into a tiny smoll loaf on the ground in front of him, still shaking, albeit not as bad.

Her fur had now fallen flat and while she still looked like she was trying to scoot away without actually physically moving.....she was calm...er....ish??

Sunstone lazily blinked as the scared new she-cat tried to articulate where she'd been all day. Oh, so she had been out hunting. What a smart cat she was. More often than not, Sunstone forgot to hunt until he was almost to hungry to move and even then, sometimes he'd get distracted and forget he was hunting. It was a miracle that he had survived so long on his own.

"Ah, hunting. You're so smart for hunting before you get to hungry to hunt. Meanwhile I've just been searching, for you, to make a perfect day. Did you have a successful hunt? Because I had a successful search." He closed his eyes and did a small happy wiggle with his body, his tail twitching excitedly in the air. Though he had run into this new cat by accident, he was proud of himself for accomplishing his goal of finding what was missing in his day. Looking back at the she-cat, realization registered on his face and he looked the she-cat over. "Oh, you're so right. I completely forgot. I'm supposed to ask 'Who are you' when meeting a new cat. Thank you for reminding me! Now.. uh... Who are you?" Sunstone stared wide eyed at the she-cat before him. He was, in fact, terrible with names. But maybe if he really focused on her, he'd remember her name when she gave it.

Any fear Tremble had of this cat trying to rip her to shreds was slowly dispersing the more he talked. Something about him struck her as.....familiar? But odd and she couldn't quite place it at first. "I.... you don't hunt?" she blinked as she eyed him.

And then he got closer and wider eyes and he was all wiggly and then mentioned the thought of not introducing himself. "uUh Sunstone...." she began before the idea hit her of what he reminded her of.

He was like a big kitten who couldn't take care of himself. Or if he did it was very.... specially done.

Tilting her head, she blinked, glancing around a moment before replying. "My name is... Tremble..." she said softly before settling down into a much less shaking pose. "... Why were you looking for me? Have we met before?" she searched her brain, trying to recall if she had ever met him before but her mind was coming up blank.

"Sure I do... At least, when I remember to." The fluffy tom gave a small chuckle. Some small part of him knew he should feel more embarrassed about forgetting to hunt so often but he generally ignored that part. "I have trouble remembering things sometimes, like hunting or finding shelter or finding clean water. My parents used to nag me about it constantly. Sunstone, remember this, Sunstone remember that, all the time... Until I lost them. That was a long time ago - they are very good at hiding. It's okay though, things usually seem to work out in the end. Like today! I found you!"

Sunstone settled himself into a nice loose loafing position. Hearing his name come from the trembling she-cat brought fourth another smile and a small purr. "Yeah, that's me. Wait, did I tell you my name is Sunstone? I guess I did, didn't I? But I bet you're smart enough to figure it out even if I hadn't said it. Yeah, that's me, Sunstone!" Turning his attention back to the cat before him, his features lit up with happiness as the scared cat gave her name. Tremble! What a perfect name! He could absolutely remember that! ... Right?

"Oh, how perfect! Tremble! That name fits you well! Oh, and no, we've not met before, I'd definitely remember a cat as cute as you! I was looking for you because.... well... because I was missing something, and you were the something, and now things are better." Sunstone beamed at Tremble, believing that his lack of explanation actually explained why he was looking for another cat to spend a lovely day with.

Tremble nodded softly at him giving his name. "You... said it...before hand.." she said as she continued to feel more at ease. He seemed more silly than threatening and she didn't pick up on any malicious scent at al. Which meant he was either he was genuinely just a friendly silly tom, or he was good at hiding it and she'd be dead tomorrow.

She was gonna hope it was the former.

At him calling her name perfect however, it brought mixed emotions to her. She had begun to smile but then her ears fell flat again and she stared at her paws a moment. "No ones ever said that before..." she meowed softly, shifting in her loaf position as if to shift her paws to be more comfortable. "My mother named me that....because I was always so scared...." she frowned again. Most other cats took advantage of her for that. She hoped he wouldn't do the same.

As for him wanting to find her.... she was still very confused. But him calling her cute sort of threw all her brain processing out the window and if a cat could blush, her cheeks would be bright red right now. "I... I didn't know... I was missing... I'm sorry? S-s-should I be....nnnnot.. missing?" she blinked.

How did she do that?
