*slides into the thread* Okay, hi, I am so sorry I didn't get this done sooner. I meant to do this last night, but my practice ran long and I had a game earlier this morning.
I flopped into my nest, exhausted after having to drag around different herbs all day with my mentor. I let my eye fall shut and hope to sleep soundly tonight.
"Well, look at you, little Mist! You've grown so much, I'm quite proud!" Talon's voice calls. I whirl around, finding myself in a glittering field of grass. Her rough gray fur is matted in some places, like it had been in life, but her darker green eyes glimmer with delight, not fear.
"Mom! R-really? You're here! ... I miss you." I stumble over my words, unable to completely express everything.
"I know, my kit. You recovered well. However, this is not a social visit. I've come with a prophecy."
"My first prophecy? Already? I don't think I'm ready for this!"
"Ah, but we have chosen now. Here is your prophecy.
Four from four will journey forth,
out across the land.
In the wild they must find the lost cats of Sky,
and bring them back again.
Help will come from the most unlikely of places,
and they must trust in those that seem untrustworthy." Her voice is chilling and rythemic. It doesn't sound like her, and it frightens me.
"But how will I know it's them? What cats of Sky?" I beg. Is it something in clan lore I don't know about?
"You must meet the others at the Four-Trees at Moonhigh two nights from now. I love you, my precious Mist." Her voice is warm again, more like herself. And then it's gone, swept away by the breeze. The only thing that remains is her scent and my memories.
