A couple moons ago...
The she-cat narrowed her eyes, lashed her tail, and crouched down into a pounce. Eyes on the dark gray tom, she leaped onto his back. The tom rolled around and the two began to wrestle. "Okay, okay, I give up!" Silverfeather yelped as Wolffang pinned her down.
The silver tabby rolled her eyes. "You're the best fighter in Sunclan. What a surprise."
"There you go." Wolffang let go and helped her sister up, licking her head.
"You're the youngest, I'm supposed to be the older and motherly one!" She protested.
"I can take care of myself. Where is Stormfeather? She should be back by now, the sun is setting too."
Just then Stormfeather bounded up, panting. "Sorry... There was a rabbit... and... I chased it... all over the territory... barley caught it... I'm tired..."
They walked over to the fresh-kill pile, which had plenty of prey since it was Green-Leaf. Stormfeather glanced at her littermates' ruffled pelts. "I missed all the fun." She pouted, taking a mouse.
"We all know who's going to win almost every play-fight." Silverfeather said, taking a bite of her squirrel.
The three continued eating and later shared tounges. As they were heading over to the warriors den, Whiteleaf padded up to them."Silverfeather, you're on night watch tonight. Wake Leopardclaw up when it's his turn."
"Okay." Silverfeather dipped my head to the wise deputy, then turned to her littermates. "I guess I'll see you later."
"Good luck." Stormfeather said, giving her a lick on the shoulder.
"Don't fall asleep." Wolffang gave her a playful nudge.
"Thanks, and I won't."
Silverfeather gaazed up at the twinkling stars. She imagined them as Starclan, the wise and powerful clan of ancestors. She thought of Mossleaf, her mother who had died at birth. She was a white she-cat with green eyes, and gray and white patches all over her fur. Or at least, that's what other cats had told her. Silverfeather didn't remember her. Then she remembered Skykit, a light silver-gray tom with blue eyes and white paws, underbelly, chest and tail tip. She and her littermates had sneaked out of camp at 5 moons. They had ran into a fox... and well... Skykit hadn't survived. There was also Firefall, her father. He was a ginger tabby tom, with green eyes, and dark ginger ears, and tail tip and white paws, underbelly and chest. Three leaf-falls ago, his leg had gotten run over by a twoleg monster. He lived though and had to retire to the elder's den early. The following Leaf-Bare, sickness had reached camp. Wolffang was the first to catch it, but he survived. Silverfeather, Stormfeather and Wolffang all knew that Firefall was a strong fighter, and assumed he would conquer the sickness. They were wrong.
Silverfeather still got sad sometimes, but she knew that they would want her to be happy, and she was lucky that Stormfeather and Wolffang were still alive. She'd go crazy if she did... The silver tabby pricked her ears as she heard a snap of a twig and stood up. There was a rustling in the bushes, a bright ginger fox jumped out. Silverfeather unsheathed her claws and stepped back. A couple more foxes appeared. There seemed to be five of them...
"Listen, Mr. Fox, there are already cats living here. They wont't like that you're here. So if you could just, uh, move on to somewhere else...?"
The lead fox growled and lunged. The she-cat barley had enough time to jump out of the way. The fox's claw raked across her shoulder, and Silverfeather hissed in pain. "I don't want to fight you!" She protested. "Please-"
The fox leaped at her again and everything went black. [MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA sorry I just felt like I had to do that. Now it's even more unprofessional because I'm typing this in the middle of the story. YAY!]
Stormfeather carefully put one paw in front of the other, crouching low to the ground. The vole was a couple tail-lengths away. She wriggled her hind quarters, getting ready to leap... and-
A yowl struck through her dream, and Stormfeather woke up. She jumped out of her nest and sniffed the air. It was the scent of fox. "Everyone! Wake up!" She yelled. "Fox in camp!" Wolffang, who was resting next to her imediately jumped up.
Then she remembered Silverfeather, who was on watch... "Silverfeather could be in trouble!" Stormfeather cried out and the two littermates dashed out of the warriors den.
Stormfeather gasped. Five foxes circled Silverfeather, who was laying down, sprawled out and unmoving. Hopefully she just was unconsious... Wolffang growled beside me and unsheathed his claws. Then he charged. "Leave her alone!" He yowled and leaped onto the fox's back.
Stormfeather shook my head and snapped out of it, unsheathing her claws and helping my brother. The other warriors and apprentices woke up, and after some tiresome fighting, the fox's ran away, especially since they were overwhelmed too. Wolffang, of course, had little wounds. He nudged Silverfeather onto his back and began slowly padding towards the medicine den. I fell into step and helped bear the weight.
Flowerfall was busy, rushing around with cobwebs and marigold. Stormfeather saw her send an apprentice away to go find more herbs. After the medecine cat finished with one cat, she called. "Next."
"I don't know what happened," Stormfeather was surprised to hear the worry in Wolffang's voice. "We just found her surrounded by foxes near the entrance."
The red and white she-cat put her ear to Silverfeather's body. "She's breathing. She was just hit hard and is knocked out. I'll patch up her shoulder, and then she can rest in my den. You two should go do something useful."
Stormfeather was about to protest, but Flowerfall interrupted. "Trust me, she's fine. There's only two other medicine cats if you don't believe me, and I'm sure they would enjoy you waking them up in the middle of the night. It's not like she's going anywhere."
The gray tabby sighed. "Okay..." She licked Silverfeather's ear, before padding out.
Wolffang came back into camp with a starling and a vole in my jaws. It was hard to hunt because, one, he was worried about Silverfeather and two, he was a little tired. Plus he specialized in fighting, not hunting. Stormfeather, who had been helping to repair the camp from the fighting, ran up to him. "I think Silverfeather's stirring!"
"You checked on her without me?" Wolffang glared.
"I couldn't resist. And-"
"Oh forget it. Come on." Wolffang ran over to the medicine den, with Stormfeather on his tail.
Silverfeather was just blinking awake when the two arrived. She groaned, and jumped up, wincing at her shoulder. "The foxes! Where? Oh." She realized she was in the medicine den.
"WHAT DID YOU DO?" Wolffang roared.
Silverfeather inched away. "What do you mean?"
"DID YOU KNOW HOW WORRIED I WAS?" Wolffang bellowed. "YOU LOOKED LIKE YOU WERE DEAD!"
Stormfeather brushed against her sister comfortingly. "Ooh, Wolffang admitted he was worried!" She teased, then turned to Silverfeather. "Don't worry, I won't get mad at you. We all have those close calls."
Wolffang didn't care. He was just glad that his sister was okay. "Explain. Now. Before I kill you."
"Well, I heard a snap of a twig. Then, a fox came out. Then four more. I told the fox that there were already cats living here, but he didn't like it and... yeah."
Wolffang growled and rolled my eyes. "Silverfeather for the last time - you have to be able to attack a fox, badger, or cat. I know you can be a good fighter. You're a great runner, and you're light on your paws. You can do something."
"But I can't... It just feels wrong... and if the fox wasn't so short-tempered then none of this would have happened!" She protested.
"Foxes can't understand cat." Stormfeather said.
"I wish..." The silver tabby she-cat muttered.
Flowerfall padded up with some herbs. "Ah, you're awake. Silverfeather, you were hit hard, so you're resting for the day. Stormfeather, Wolffang, you better get some sleep and food soon. It's dawn. And don't give me that look, Wolffang, everybody needs sleep and food."
"He admitted he was worried for Silverfeather!" Stormfeather jumped in.
"I'll remember that." Flowerfall grinned. "Now get out of here. It's getting crowded."
