Chapter 11- point of view, Swiftstar.
Swiftstar coughed up a stream of water, and opened her eyes. The first thing she noticed was that she was soaking wet. She wrinkled her nose in disgust. "Oh, good. Your up," came an unfamiliar voice. Swiftstar rolled over and saw a girl with light red hair, a black tank top and skinny pants. She also wore red high heel boots. Swiftstar recognized her immediately: Cress!
"Cre-" she started, but Cress put her hand over her mouth.
"Shhh. It's Rue. I'm Rue now," she said. Hmm, her other name. I guess she doesn't want to be recognized as an SAMBer by the darkened. Swiftstar was so excited about seeing her sister she forgot to smirk and keep her everything-displeases-me attitude. "Your lucky you woke up on your own. Kitten suggested dumping water on ya'll, but neither of us wanted to do that to you especially with your scowl in your sleep," Rue said. Swiftstar chuckled. She looked around. Kitten and Rose were the only ones up besides Rue.
"So...what happened?" Swiftstar asked.
"Well, Rose used her powers to spread the water about from all of you, and then she and Kitten found me and we helped drag all of you out," Rue said. There Rose goes, saving all of us again, she thought bitterly. Swiftstar looked over at Tigris, laying on the ground in a puddle. Judging by her expression, she actually looked.... peaceful, in her unconscious state.
"We should wake her up," Swiftstar said.
"Why?" Rue asked.
"Because she's leader," Swiftstar said with a hint of attitude. Rue shrugged and grabbed a bucket of water and walked over to Tigris. She dumped it onto her.
"GGGAAAHHH!" Tigris screamed, jumping up and punching Rue in the face.
"Ow!" Rue screamed, and collapsed, clutching her face.
"Hey!" Swiftstar shouted, and ran over to Tigris. "No reason to start PUNCHING PEOPLE!" Tigris wiped water off her face and glared at Swiftstar.
"It was an accident, she woke me up!" She growled at the end and stalked over to her wet backpack. She unzipped it and pulled out three vases, a picture frame, and a glass. Swiftstar had wondered why she had summoned those random things before..... until now. Tigris stalked into the cave behind her and disappeared. Then Swiftstar heard screams and shattering. Rue quickly jumped to her feet and looked in that direction, along with Rose and Kitten.
"Should we..... go get her?" She asked, with a huge lump already welling on her face.
"Sure, if you want to get punched in the face again," Swiftstar smirked. Rue stomped away, muttering, and grabbed some ice for her face. Tigris' racket had caused Storm, Kodah, and Frostbite to wake up. Swiftstar occupied herself by sharpening her knife (instead of helping Rose and Kitten build a fire) while she waited for everyone else to wake up, Tigris to stop loosing her mind, and Rue to explain herself and everything. This took approximately a half an hour. Tigris walked out of the cave, looking perfectly calm.
"Ooookay. So, Tigris, what's the plan?" Cleo asked. Tigris looked around at everyone.
"Where's Cassy?" She asked. Storm shot up.
"Cassy?" She called urgently. Blaise stood up slowly, hanging her head.
"I'm sorry, everyone. Cassy is dead. The fire got her. I couldn't save her and Kodah both," she said sadly. Swiftstar glanced at Kodah, who was looking at Blaise with an unreadable expression.... but was that confusion? Anger? Swiftstar looked at Blaise. Does it look like Blaise has been punch- Storm started sobbing and Blaise looked away before Swiftstar could finish that thought. Dogfly, who was sitting closest to her, hugged her. Blaise walked over and put an arm around her to. A tear ran down Ocean's cheek, and she leaned on Twitch's shoulder. Silver looked at her hands, Ashes facial expression was unreadable, but she stared off into space. Anaia was crying, Freya's eyes were starting to water, Grace looked upset, Rose looked equally distraught, Faith looked discouraged, Cleo had her face in her hands, Kodah was looking down, and even Rue looked sad.
"Another death, and how close are we to Inspiration Island?" Tigris growled, throwing her hands up before walking away. Storm wailed all the louder, so some SAMBers started looking around nervously, expecting Darkened SAMBers to jump out of no where.
"Storm.... maybe you should quiet down," Freya suggested lightly.
"MY FRIEND JUST DIED AND YOU WANT ME TO QUIET DOWN?" Storm shouted, jumping up and running into the cave. Swiftstar sighed. Night Robin is dead. Kagami is dead. Cassy is dead. And.... Puppy is Darkened.
