OOC: are Dove's kits about a moon old yet? i'm just going to assume we've gtten that far.
IC: Rapterkit started to pad outside, ready to explore more of the camp, and to find his father.
"Rapter, i know that you think that this life is stupid, but... if you actually compare it to ours... it's not that much different. you could have a good life here."
"...it's not quite that..." Rapter started, "...why did you run? why did you abandon your brethren?" he asked accusingly.
"...it was because i was the reason why Torn was killed in that raid... because neither of us could tell we were allies until the smoke cleared. i was very young, and so was he... it scarred me, i carried that burden around, trying to forget it, until i had seen you a few moons ago. after that, the memories haunted me, and were driving me insane... until i spoke with Torn... he told me that he didn't blame me for his death, that if he were the one with faster reflexes... he'd be where i am today. i didn't leave to abandon you... i left because i blamed myself for my friend's death."
