Many seasons ago, a flood rampaged through the forest, which was home to four Clans: ThunderClan, ShadowClan, RiverClan, and WindClan. In the end, it destroyed the entire forest, causing the Clans to get lost in the process. The Clans traveled to a far away land, away from all familiar areas. Many cats died on the journey, leaving just a pitiful few left. The few survivors became kittypets, rogues, or stayed as part of their Clan, trying to bring them back together. Eventually, the Clans true ancestry was lost beneath everything. No one could answer the question of who founded the original four Clans. The stories and tales of the "Old Life", when they lived peacefully in the forest were lost, the only things that remained were the names of the Clans. Everything seemed grim for the remaining Clan descendants. The Clans were just known as groups, nothing more and nothing less. But, hope shone through eventually, when four brave cats decided to finally restablish the Clans under new identities. The four cats went by the name of: Creek, Summit, Pine, and Dark. They gave names to the Clans once again, named after themselves and their territories, creating the Clans as we know them.
This is how it should be, and this is how it always will be.
SummitClan: These cats are considered to be descendants of WindClan, but some Clans consider them not one of the original four due to how they have changed. With lean bodies and thick fur, they have adapted from life on the moors to life on the mountains.
PineClan: These cats are considered to be the descendants of ThunderClan, they live in the thick forest where they use the undergrowth as an advantage. Their muscular shoulders make them excellent fighters.
DarkClan: These cats are considered to be the descendants of ShadowClan, but have adopted being quick instead of relying on brute strength to win their battles. Their teeth are known to be the sharpest in the world, while their territory, the darkest in the current lands.
CreekClan: These cats are considered to be the descendants of RiverClan, considered the most "pure" of all the Clans due to them being so alike to their ancestors. They are excellent swimmers, and take a lot of pride into their skills.

Annah LunaTheMoon, Almost jumping in surprise, she was stunned for several seconds as the tom sank into the ground. Could she have made him think about the past too much? The guilt gnawed at her stomach, and she slowly scooted over to him and did the only thing she knew to comfort another: she slowly stroked his back with her tail. "There there... It'll be okay. I think." Her uncertainty showed in her shaky voice, but she hoped that he wouldn't mind. She was out here trying to comfort a stranger after all. She continued gently stroking the tom's back, settling into a steady rhythm pretty quickly.

Geb mind started to return to the present and when he felt the molly stroking his back he purred and started to get up. "I'm sorry about that I have been getting these weird flashbacks where all of my worse memories replay in my mind over and over again." he said rubbing his flattish head with his big paw. Solaris,
Annah LunaTheMoon, She curled her tail around her paws once he seemed to regain his senses. Thankfully he seemed okay, thought it was worrying that he had an episode like that. "Ah, don't worry about it. You should probably get rest if it's been happening a lot." She advised quietly, though she wasn't sure if it would necessarily fix the problem or not. Trauma was handled differently by every cat after all. "It's good that you're feeling better now though, you gave me quite the scare." She laughed lightheartedly, the mood felt rather sad. "Sorry if you didn't want to be touched, it was the only trick that I knew. It always calmed me down as a little kit."

Geb chuckled "Im surprised you didn't run away most cats that stayed until one of the episodes starts run away screaming." he said. Then when she apologized for rubbing his back he smiled "It felt good actually it helped me return to the present." he said. "I would get rest but I still need to work more on making a cave for those bats so they can let me have peace." he said. Solaris,
Annah LunaTheMoon, "I was pretty close to doing that, to be quite frank. Boy, you are one scary kitty." She sighed, letting out all the tension that had built up since their meeting. After the fur on her shoulders finally flattened out, she looked up at Geb again. "Well work or not, if you need rest you need to rest. I know there have been plenty of cats that just collapse because they think they can live without sleeping." She huffed, with a slightly pushy tone. Her whiskers twitched in irritation at the thought of someone deliberately mistreating their body over something so small.

Geb smirked "I guess thats what happens when you are covered in scars." he said. The big tom then stood up "So I guess I shall get some rest but how rude of me to not invite you into my cave." he said with a gentleman like tone trying not to laugh. Solaris,
Annah LunaTheMoon, "I suppose so." She admitted, with a hint of guilt to her voice. While she usually tried her best not to just cats by how they looked, sometimes she couldn't help it. "Ah, you don't need to." Quickly glancing at the sky, she could see that there wasn't much daylight left. "I should be on my way, I am looking for a den to call my own after all." She laughed lightly, not wanting to impose on his rather private life. Hopefully he didn't think ill of her for turning his offer down, though he didn't seem like the type of cat that would do that. Sometimes you just never knew.

Geb smiled "Alright but there is room for you in the cave the bats might actually shut up if they see two big cats sleeping in there." he said "Soon they will be out again hunting so we might get some peace and quiet for a bit I don't know why they where out during the day earlier maybe they wanted to annoy me or something." he said. His mind was trailing back down the path of the senile bat hater. Solaris,
Annah LunaTheMoon, She chuckled as he began to go on about the bats again, maybe she'd start referring to him as the bat cat. "Possibly, but I don't think it would change their minds. Bats will be bats after all." She flicked an ear as she stood up, and stretched her legs. She was probably going to end up sleeping in a tree again, but she wouldn't mind too much. Anything if it meant finding a home that suited her needs. "Who knows, maybe I'll pick out a place nearby. Being neighbors doesn't seem so bad." The surrounding forest did seem empty enough, and was less crowded than her old place. There were traces of having plenty more prey too. "Well, goodbye until we meet again Geb." She dipped her head in good-bye and passed through the bushes that she had originally crossed over, and followed along the path that she had originally set out for herself.

Geb watched her leave waving his tail goodbye. He then turned to walk into the cave to finally get some proper rest for the first time in a few days. Solaris, (Time skip if you want sorry its so short.)
She yawned as the morning sun hit her eyes, and she groggily blinked them open. Carefully stretching her forelegs, she looked around as she smacked her chops. She had chose a random tree in the forest, because it became too dark to search for a den any longer. Hopping down from the tree, she blinked in surprise as she looked carefully at it's roots. There was a small dugout, as if something like a raccoon had dug under and used it as a den. She sat down before trying to dig it out, and was thankful to find that the dirt was relatively loose. Given it's location and amount of work that she didn't have to put into it, she figured that it would be the perfect spot. Maybe she'd even go back and chat it up with Geb in a couple hours, after all she only needed to hunt at this point. Boy did she feel lucky. She began to dig more intensely, wanting to dig out enough space in the den before going out to hunt for some food.

Geb had already been awake for a few hours when the sun was just about to rise. He was busy catching mice and bats in the cave for himself to eat that he didn't care to leave his cave. He hoped that Annah would enter the cave and be able to find the main room easily after all its not a maze like cave till you go past the main part. Solaris,
She was very close to purring, as she relaxed in the newly dugout den and snacked on a robin that she had caught. She didn't really get to feel this way with her old home, with the constant fear of being attacked for the place itself and whatever she had happened to have with her at the time. Crawling out of the den, she beamed proudly before trotting back towards where she had originally met Geb. She had entertained the idea of becoming his neighbor when they first met, but she didn't actually think that she would carry through with it. Well, thankfully he seemed like a decent character. Peeping her head through the bushes that she left through from yesterday. She didn't see him in the area though, so she wondered what she should do. Calling out for him would probably be best... "Hey Geb, you around here...?"

Geb raised his head when he heard Annah calling from outside the cave he then roared an inviting roar letting her know that he was in his cave. The big tom always felt proud when he roared because it seemed like no other cat could roar like him Solaris,
Annah LunaTheMoon, Her tail fluffed up in surprise as she heard what sounded almost like thunder come from Geb's cave. Huffing, she calmed herself down before padding over to it. "A simple 'I'm here' would have sufficed..." Pausing at the entrance, she hesitated before going in. After all, she didn't really know what the inside was like. Giving the tom the benefit of he doubt, it took only a couple seconds for her eyes to adjust to the dark. Following the strongest scent trail so she wouldn't get lost, she entered what seemed to act as a main cave, judging by it's size. "My, this is an impressive place you've got here." She mused.
