Kyoki l Pink-Orange Air l Pheasant Woods

Kyoki wandered around the woods, muttering as she scanned her surroundings. "Hnng, what can I carve, what can I carve, what can I carve," said the bone carver as she poked her head into a bush to see if there were any flowers she could attempt to carve. She then shook her head out of the bush, frustrated at how little inspiration she had that day. "If only someone could come and help me find something to carve," she muttered, continuing on.


Piper | Orange/Pink - Light Tribe | Pheasant Woods

A cool early-Summer breeze tangled up Piper's fur as she wandered around Pheasant Woods. It was late morning, though the air still held a certain crispness, the last hints of winter. Piper had enjoyed the previous Season, though at times it was much too cold for her liking. But as summer approached Piper was anxious to gain her new skills, but was also terrified. She would have the ability to harm more than she already did with her three skills. It could be a deadly demise, or a source for finding new enemies. But she didn't intend to use them to harm others, unless war broke out, though Piper suspected the Elemental Animals would be more of an issue than civil war.

Suddenly Piper's ears picked up murmuring from the trees. Lifting her head to sniff the air, Piper caught the scent of and Air Triber. It smelled a like Leo, the Green-Air she had helped earlier this moon, with the same tang of exile hidden in it. Smiling to herself, Piper headed in the direction of the whispers. Turning around a tree she found a black and white Pink/Orange-Air, sticking her head in a bush. Piper suppressed laughter, but stayed hidden in the low foliage. Then she head the Air Triber speak again. She sounded desperate for someone else. But Piper had other plans. "If only someone could keep your mouth shut!" she hissed from the trees. Stepping out of the shadows Piper approached the Pink/Orange-Air. The stranger was not much taller than her, but seemed a whole lot stronger. Even though in the back of her head Piper knew that she couldn't use her powers, something deep down was ready to activate her tattoo.


Kyoki l Pink-Orange Air l Pheasant Woods

Her head snapped back and noticed the creamy brown she-cat. Her eye twitched a little, irritated that the Light Triber broke her train of thought. Even so, she did her best to hide that under her emotionless mask, only breaking it to as so much glare at her. "May I ask, what are you doing here?" said Kyoki, her eye twitching a little more. She wasn't afraid to launch a spark at the unknown cat to scare her off, although something about her made Kyoki think twice. "She's probably a secondary," thought Kyoki as she examined the she-cat. She definitely didn't seem like the type to go around healing kitties, fretting over their condition at the Light Tribe camp. She stifled the laugh that had started to creep up her throat as she imagined the Orange/Pink-Light working in the Light Tribe camp, tending to the sick and checking for infections. Huffing, Kyoki turned her back to the short she-cat and went about her own business, continuing to look for inspiration for her carvings. Even so, something told her that the she-cat wouldn't let her go so easily.


Piper | Orange/Pink - Light Tribe | Pheasant Woods

"Well I'm allowed to wander the Neutral Lands aren't I?" Piper said cleverly to the Pink/Orange-Air. Now she knew her intention. She could start by getting under the Air Triber's skin, then continue by irritating her to the point of a figh- 
Well she didn't have to go that far, but maybe she could get close. After all Damon had told her to not get herself into anymore fights, but why trust the uptight Guard? He didn't care about Piper anymore; he had Tacita to worry about. No need to play with his rules. He was just a sad old Fire Triber that sulked around all day. Damon didn't matter anymore. Piper let her lip curl into a snarl and a spark of thirst glimmered on her eye. "Though if you're wondering the reason I have decided to come to Pheasant Woods, it's none of your business." Piper took a step forward, just out of reach from the Pink/Orange-Air's claw. She wasn't to intent on getting another scratch and having to visit the nosey Yukiteri, though maybe Piper could teach the Air Triber one or two things about sharing the Neutral Lands. 


Kyoki l Pink-Orange Air l Pheasant Woods

"Well I was just curious," said Kyoki, trying to sound as innocent as possible. She already got the feeling that the annoying light triber was trying to get under her skin. "Well two can play at that game," she thought, thinking of the pitfall trap she had dug nearby a day ago. It was too small to fully trap a full grown cat, but it's enough to get their legs stuck for a good while. Of course if a fight broke out, Kyoki would probably use that pesky Light Triber as target practice, seeing as paw to paw combat isn't one of her professions, nor her strong point. Trying her best to not show how irritating the she-cat had been, Kyoki walked off to a secluded area, and leaped up to a tangle of sturdy vines that served as a hammock, she took a piece of bone out of her tail ring and started carving away, fashioning the bone into something that looked a little like an ear piercing. "Maybe I'll give this to my half-brother or my sister, if she ever comes to the tribes," she thought, making the bone piercing as intricate as she could at the moment. She didn't like to admit it, but she loved to make accessories, although carving her stories on bones were equally pleasing to her. 


Piper | Orange/Pink - Light Tribe | Pheasant Woods

Climbing up the tree after the Pink/Orange-Air, Piper found herself at the same level as the stubborn Bone-Crafter. She watched as she carved a bone into a sharp point, but what use was that? An earring? "Well I'm not sure your half-sister will ever come by with all your negativity contaminating the air!" Piper snapped. Discretely with a flick of her paw she flipped the makeshift 'hammock' the Air Triber was lying on, hoping to tip her off. Sitting back up Piper had a smile of content spread across her face. "Oops." she hissed. As she slid back down the tree, Piper didn't care if the Air Triber fell or not, but deep down she wished for the little pest to tumble down onto the soft sod that awaited her. 


Kyoki l Pink-Orange Air l Pheasant Woods

"Annoying little prick," growled Kyoki as she hung upside down, the ear piercing still in her teeth. She wasn't hanging upside down at will though; she was pretty much hopelessly tangled within the vines. After a while of untangling, she finally got free, and righted herself on the hammock, carving away again, this time deliberately squeaking away obnoxiously on a piece of bark. "I'm sorry, am I bothering you?" she shouted over her own squeaking, making a rough impression of the light triber on the large piece of bark. She kept squeaking obnoxiously, drowning out any reply that might have come.


Piper | Orange/Pink - Light Tribe | Pheasant Woods

The sound of the Air Triber's claws on the bark made Piper cringe. It was high pitched and irritating, worse than any song bird's cry and as loud as thunder. "WILL YOU STOP THAT?" Piper screamed at the top of her lungs. She leaped from branch to branch, her paws clumsily bouncing on the tree. Once she got to the level of the Pink/Orange-Air, Piper slapped her paw away from the bark. "WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?" she screamed. Shoving the Air Triber backwards, Piper unsheathed her claws. Her fury was blinding her from her common sense, she didn't think, and her breath was short and fast. 


Kyoki l Pink-Orange Air l Pheasant Woods

Kyoki staggered back a little, and smirked. "Oh, so you want more, eh?" she said as she unsheathed her claws and climbed higher, and squeaked even more obnoxiously on the bark. All the while, she was smiling, glad that she had gotten under the she-cat's pelt. "What's that? I can't hear you!" she mocked, leaping onto the next tree and squeaking there. She then hit her tail against the leaves, creating another incredibly obnoxious sound, mixing the two together to make an incredibly noisy and obnoxious song, scaring away birds and animals all around. "If she was bothered by simple squeaking on bark, then this should annoy her more," she thought, continuing her obnoxious tune.


Piper | Orange/Pink - Light Tribe | Pheasant Woods

By now, Piper was fed up by the stupid ignorant little vixen. But she wasn't childish! Climbing down the tree, her paws trembling from frustration, she landed heavily. "Come down here and we can settle this case with tooth and claw!" Piper called up. "No powers, it is forbidden for me to use mine against other cats." now that Piper had already harmed a cat once, it wasn't worth risking it again, especially with the unpredictable Air Triber. Piper unsheathed her claws and prepared herself for a small fight, only a small one. It wouldn't get out of hand. Piper promised herself that. She wouldn't see need to see Yukiteri, but she would win the fight.


Kyoki l Pink-Orange Air l Pheasant Woods

Kyoki sat up in the branches, pondering her options for a long time. "If I come down there she'll probably beat me to a pulp," she thought, twitching her tail. "But if I stay up here for a long time, I'll just piss her off even more. However, I've got the ear piercing that I've carved, and its sharp enough to do some damage, like a couple of nasty pricks or even poke out her eye, but there's a very high chance I'll miss, seeing as fighting isn't a strong point in me, but there's a chance I could lead her to that pitfall trap," she continued, shaking her tail in frustration. "Decisions, decisions," she thought, standing up. "Only if you can catch me," she said, sticking out her tongue at the light triber below and dashing off into the trees. She climbed higher and higher until she was sure the light triber couldn't see her, and quietly dashed off in the direction towards Air Tribe territory. "Although I might've dodged a fight, she's still the one who provoked me. That annoying little prick," she mumbled as she ran, keeping track of the wind and her scent.


Piper | Orange/Pink - Light Tribe | Pheasant Woods

"I'LL FIND YOU, YOU LITTLE PRICK!" Piper screamed into the trees. She wasn't in the mood for a chase, nor a fight. Piper preferred to keep her paws on the ground, and slowly she turned in the direction of Light Tribe territory. Her rage kept her blind as she stormed back towards her camp. That little Air Triber had defiantly climbed under her nerves, but not enough for Piper to claw of her ears. Her steps were heavy and as she burst through a bush a trio of frolicking sparrows fluttered away. "CURSE YOU!" Piper shouted after them. Everything seemed to be aggravating her. Nothing was going her way. 


Kyoki l Pink-Orange Air l Pheasant Woods

Although she had succeeded in annoying that little pest of a light triber and kept her temper under control, Kyoki was actually seething inside. When she heard Piper scream at the birds, she lost it. "SHUT THE F*** UP," she shouted, activating her tattoo and using the vulgar language she usually kept under control. There were more that she knew, but she didn't dare piss off the light triber any more, just in case she was still close by. "That pesky little c***," spat Kyoki as she arrived in familiar territory, struggling to get her temper back in control. She caught sight of Air Tribe territory through the trees, and ran faster, determined to put more distance between her and the annoying orange-pink light. "Next time I see her, I'll show her what I can really do, especially with my bones," she whispered bitterly, clutching the finished ear piercing within her teeth. "Maybe I'll give her this as a memento of our first encounter."

Proofread and corrected some errors. Kyoki's swearing's also censored so I don't have to put a mature content label on it...or do I?

Kyoki belongs to me
Piper belongs to cateawren
