As I stalked through the forest,scenting prey, I hear a rustle of leaves and Hawkfrost jumps out. I hiss with my hackles raised,“What are you doing in ThunderClab territory, River Clan cat?“ He spits back,“I need to talk to Firstar.“ Just then a hunting patrol comes up, Thornclaw at the lead, flanking him was Squirrelpaw and Brambleclaw. I looked surprised, then say "Thornclaw, I caught a RiverClan intruder on our territory he says he wants to talk with Firstar." Thornclaw looks around at me, then Hawkfrost then back again. With gentle eyes he says "Alright, but don't let him out of your sight." We then escort Hawkfrost to the camp. Leafpaw looks up and whispers something to Cinderpelt. Firestar comes out of the den. "What is a Hawkfrost doing here?" Thornclaw signals to me,"He wishes to speak with you." I say. "What is it you wish to speak to me about?" Firestar askes. With a cold stare at Firestar, he says,"About Riverclan's decision." All the cats tensed. "Well go with you to the sun~drown place." All the cats looked stunned. "Alright Hawfrost, my warriors will escort you back to your territory." Firestar flicked his tail at Thornclaw and me. As we started to walk away, I heard Squirrelpaw mummer,"Stupid RiverClan cat." We brought Hawkfrost to the stepping stones. "Stay out of ThunderClan territory!" Thornclaw hissed. We then walked away, the Sun was setting, and we made our way back to camp. I carried a thrush in my jaws, while Thornclaw carried a small mouse. Firestar nodded his thanks and left us to eat. We found a spot by the Warriors den and sat. After I had eaten my thrush, I went to the den. But Thornclaw stopped me,saying teasingly, "What about sharing tounges?" But I didn't miss the hint of longing in his voice. I felt my fur flush and my heart sway. I settled down beside him,groominghhis fur, he purred with delight. Squirrelpaw settled down beside us and so did Brambleclaw. After my fur looked clean, I headed for the den again. Thornclaw followed. He layed down beside me and I feel into a deep sleep. I smelled that sweet fragrance then called out,"Spottedleaf?" My sister walked up to me, and gently said,“ Beware of a creature that lurks in the sky." She then disappeared. And left me alone to cry out. I awoke with a start. I got up, stretched and saw I was in a cave. The Tribe of Rushing water, I remember. Then a rush of longing pierced my heart of the memory... Then I looked at my swollen belly and said,"You'd better not come till we're all safe." "We are safe." Comes the soft voice of Thornclaw. "I can't wait to see my kits, I bet they're as lovely as their mother." He pressed his head against my shoulder. "are you hungry?" he asked. I nodded. "I'll get you something" he promised. I cast him a grateful look. I slowly walk out of my den and sit near Leafpaw. "Hi " I say. "Hi," Leafpaw says. "Will my kits be due soon?" I ask. "In a Moon or two she says. I sigh. "It seems only yesterday we were back at camp, eating and sharing tounges. " I say longingly. "Yes, it does."
