Falling in love with a stranger (Hollyleaf and Fallen Leaves)
Hollyleaf opened her emerald eyes, yawning as she stretched. Her leg was healed now, thanks to the mysterious ginger and white tom. Fallen Leaves had taken care of her for a full moon now, and she was almost ready to go home. Except she wasn't. Fallen Leaves had told her to go home if she had felt it necessary, but something was holding her back. It was as if a bird was fluttering around in her heart, pulling her back as soon as she stepped out. "I see someone's up late." A soft voice teased gently. Hollyleaf turned with a start, but relaxed as she glanced at the face of Fallen Leaves. His light green eyes sparkled, but had an odd tint to them. Almost as if one could see right through them. Hollyleaf purred and curled her tail. "I'm sorry if it bothers you if I sleep. It's not like I almost died or anything." She meowed, blinking er eyes affectionatly. Fallen Leaves rolled his eyes playfully and nudged as small furry object towards her. She broke into a purr delight as she gazed at the mouse. The tom usually only had access to fish.
"Where did you get it?" She asked, taking a bight into its warm flesh. He didn't answer, but she didn't mind. She had gotten used to his mysterious personality. Fallen Leaves stifled a snort of amusement as she tried to lick off a fleck of meat from her chin. He reached forward slowly, nudging off the scrap of flesh and breathing in her scent. She stiffened slightly, but then relaxed. They sat together in silence, Hollyleaf not bothering to finish her mouse. As the cold began to sweep over her, she shivered. She leaned again Fallen Leave's cold fur. She glanced up at him, her heart warming. She realized for the first time ever, that she loved him. Fallen Leaves licked her head and purred, happy for once. As they fell asleep together, she felt the wind ruffle her fur. Fallen Leaves wrapped his tail around her, pulling her closer. And it may have been her imagination, but Hollyleaf was almost certain she felt warmth radiating off his fur.
