Come on, you dumb rabbit.
I slammed my paws down onto the spine of a huge, fat rabbit. It squeaked with surprise as I killed it instantly.
"Nice catch, Quickstar!" I heard Falconpaw yowl. I knew it was her assessment today, so I had taken her over to GorseClan with Silverspark and Lake. She had passed successfully, which had been a relief. The she-cat was the swiftest of her siblings, and also the smartest. Darkpaw was the strongest and the fighter, Echopaw being the most attentive to what was around her, and Featherpaw being the most silent. She had scared me once by suddenly jumping out from behind a tree stump.
I smelled something odd close to us. I turned around and saw a tiny dot on the border, slowly getting bigger until I could make out who it was: A she-cat, with kits, running towards us.
"Silverspark! Do you think we should approach the she-cat?"
Silverspark nodded and pelted down the slope, me and Falconpaw on her tail.
As we got closer, I could smell MistyClan on the she-cat's pelt. I saw two familiar cats behind her: Swanwing and Tigershadow.
I quickened my pace and now I could clearly see that each of the MistyClan cats were carrying a kit in their mouths.
"Quickstar!" Tigershadow's muffled voice came from behind the kit's scruff.
I went full-pelt and stopped, digging my claws into the ground as Tigershadow, Swanwing, and the she-cat approached.
"Why are you here?" I asked.
"Cavestar was crazy before, and now he's gone completely insane! He makes Moonheart and Skyfeather treat to our 'so-called new Clanmates' first instead of the more horribly hurt cats! Rosethorn and Smokewisp almost died because of that! And the more crazy part is that most of the TigerClan cats approve of this!" Tigershadow growled.
"They're Doepetal, Mistbreeze, Meadowfur, Mallowface, Leafstorm, Duskfox, Dawnstream, Amberdawn, Whitepelt, Strikeclaw, Streakfur, Hollowbranch, Jaggedstar, Flamingstride, Ashear, Blacktail, Fadedstorm, Fernjumper, Flashpelt, Flightwing, Flyfoot, Mountainsplash, Lionfrost, Parsleytooth, Shadowfang, Stormrunner, Tinypelt, Wrenfang, Badgerstep, Cherrysplash, Graytooth, Larchfur, Littlefoot, Ottercreek, Pebblestep, Snakefang, Streamleaf, Tallstep, Brokenwing, Leopardclaw, Palefleck, Sunstream, Bumble, Thorn, Nettle, Sky, Streak, Yarrow, Nettle, Amber, Bear, Drizzle, Ember, Feather, Mouse, Smoke, Rain, Fuzz, and Patch. And of course, there's the rogue MistyClan warriors." Swanwing crossly mewed.
What is with TigerClan cats' detailed memories?
"That's roughly over sixty cats!" Falconpaw exclaimed.
"We know, but it's still less than the amount of LionClan cats we have." I respond quickly.
"We want to join LionClan." The she-cat gasped, intaking huge breaths.
"And Cavestar's also organized TigerClan into these 'ranks.' Rank one cats are Cavestar's most trusted warriors. Rank ten cats are the least important, according to Cavestar. I was a rank five cat, Tigershadow was a rank three cat, and Lakeheart here was a rank eight cat. Rank ones get to eat, get their injuries looked at, and get the most trust first. Rank ten cats eat last, get their wounds tended to last, no matter how bad they are, and get the least trust." Swanwing mewed.
"Well, you can join LionClan. We'll help and take in anyone who wants to join against Cavestar." I mew.
LionClan is growing bigger by the moon. How will we ever take care of everyone?
