Wildpaw fell into step with Pumapelt. "Are you going to punish me?" She whimpered. "With a problem that put cats in danger, Risingstar will decide that," she said matter-of-factly. Wildpaw looked away, eyes wide. When they reached camp, Risingstar jumped right onto high ledge. "Everyone, you may be alarmed, but the tree on fire was quickly put out by the help of our warriors. Wildpaw, since you are responsible for this you will be punished. For the next moon, the elders are your responsibility. In he future, if anyone sees any suspicious twoleg stuff, report it immediately," he said. "I'll help Wildpaw," Acornpaw piped up. "I was going to help her..." she trailed off, shuffling her paws. "Very well, you may help her this once," he said. Swiftbreeze came out of the elder's den. She lay her tail on Wildpaw's back. "At least you get to spend some time with me," she said, guiding her daughter away. "In the future, maybe some apprentices should stop trying to prank us," spat Bearpaw. Wildpaw had left his nest full of burrs, but he gave her a good cuff over the ear for that. "Yeah," muttered Sharppaw, who was sitting next to Bearpaw. Wildpaw had waited until he walked under a tree, then hopped on the branch and showered him with snow. Pumapelt sighed. Isn't it partly my fault that I can't control my apprentice? Risingstar jumped down from high ledge. "I want a hunting patrol. Lionpride, you lead it. Take Ivyheart, Wolffrost, Rosepetal, Raincloud, Moonspirit, Maplemist, Racconpaw, Foxface, Mountainpaw, Lightningstrike, Sharppaw, Hailtail, Thornpaw, Smokefeather, Cinderwhisker, Pumapelt and Flamefoot," Risingstar said. "Silvershine, lead a border patrol with Jaysong, Brokenwind, Firelight, Brokenice, Icestorm, Morningpaw, Frostbite, Nightpaw, Dawnfur, Stormrunner, Duskpelt, Sparkheart, Ashcloud, and Fernpool. Take the twoleg and Spiritclan border," he instructed. "Hawktalon, lead the second border patrol when they return, with Bearpaw, Eaglefeather, Lynxear, Snakepaw, Pouncefoot, Badgerpaw, Birdfeather, Mistpaw, Scarear, Sweetfeather, Stormpelt, and Eclipse," he finished. Pumapelt walked over with Flamefoot to her assigned patrol, and the tip of her tail twitched. Would Snarl be there?
