The sound of running water had soothed her for as long as she could remember, so much so that she had been named after the small river. It was rather large now, due to the melting of the snow as New-Leaf came. Sunlight sparkled on the rush water at her paws, and as the river rushed over the rocks, it cast glittering droplets everywhere. Echostream blinked and sniffed as one landed on her nose, shaking it off with a jerk of the head. Something as small as that, however, could not spark any irritation; the day was simply too nice and the water too calming.[/size]
It was no secret that the she-cat often sat by the stream's edge, crouched on the moss covered rocks. Occasionally her habit irked the harder working, more motivated warriors, but they simply did not understand. It was better that she stay by the river and look pretty. Echostream had no talent for hunting or fighting; she would probably end up scaring prey away anyway and making it harder to catch for those who could hunt. Besides, she was content to simply sit by the stream and admire her own reflection.
The she-cat licked a paw and ran it over her face a few times as thoughts strayed to her clanmates. Most of them were decent to her - at least to her face. They were polite enough, certainly, and though she loved talking with other cats, they did not always seem willing to talk to her. Of course the kits were always fun; they did not know the intricacies of life yet and were always pleased at the prospect of a warrior taking the time to play with them. Perhaps she would want kits some day... it was always a possibility. Echostream hummed quietly to herself in satisfaction as her thoughts continued down that path. Maybe it could happen, some day.
