Snowmint's Capture-Chapter 9
Snowmint's Capture --- Chapter 9
Everything turned slow motion. Snowmint felt the blood in her ears pulse.
Her eyes darted back and forth as bodies poured into the camp.
Claws, like brambles, ripped at the flesh of these bodies, blood splattering against the dust and leaves that flew up around the cats.
Sundeep and Berrysplatter were fighting two toms of equal size. Lushface found herself face-to-face with five hungry looking apprentices, ready for blood. Snowmint launched herself at the apprentices, slashing her claws at their faces, catching one in the nose and another in the eye. They scrammbled away and Lushface gratefully nodded, running over to help Fogstorm.
The shy black tom, Beetlewing, was helping Whitecoal up and leading her away from the battle. Snowmint just caught a glimsp of a long jagged scratch streching around her shoulder. The medicine cat's tail dropped as he noticed her apprentice, Shockpaw, was u

Stagwing watched as his sister, Blisscloud, walked away with the only cat he'd ever love, Snowmint.
Snowmint turned around at the entrance of the Windclan tunnel leading towards the fading sun ahead. The blood from the battle began to seep into the ground. Most of the dead cats had been carried away.
Stagwing realized, after seeing Rashstar's torn up body, that he was now the leader.
Blisscloud padded over to her brother, she drew her tail from around her and brought it to a halt on his bold shoulder.
"I must go to my mate. Good luck with Windclan. I hope you understand why I will not be returning."
Stagwing nodded, remembering the pain his sister endured after maurning the loss of her kit and mate. She hoped that she would be successful in having her kit return to her.
"Farewell. I'll always miss you and I love you." He rubbed his cheek against her's but as he spoke, he stared longingly at Snowmint.

Snowmint stared at Stagwing with the look of death in her gaze.
"I need to escape." She said, remembering how he referred to her as an object the day before., not realizing it was because he needed to save her.
"I know, I'll help yo--"
"GRAH!" Rashstar jumped out from behind the ferns that sheltered Stagwings den. The large ugly tom's face was filled with anger and a dash of sickening happiness. Stagwing's heart dropped to his tail.
Rashstar smiled his yellow fangs. "Traitor!" He spit in his deputy's face. In his blind rage he bit down into Snowmint's back, not enough to kill her, sweeping her out of the den to his own.
"NO! RASHSTAR! STOP! SNOWMINT! SNOWMINT!"
Loststar's mind was wheeling. Heatwave felt a chill rush down her spine. She glanced at her leader and noticed the brown queen jump from the chill.
"Snowstorm." She said. She looked around, "Something's wrong."
She looked over her small troop: Lushface, Berrysplatter, Sundeep, his appr

"Snowmint? Who in Starclan is..."
Mintbreeze paused as she remembered the strickingly beautiful albino she-cat. Snowmint was the former deputy of Thunderclan and only a few seasons younger than her father.
"That's impossible! She--"
"Listen, Minty. When Rashstar was the leader of Windclan, Snowmint was a captured spy. And Stagstar fell in love with her while he was here and he helped her escape and she took Whiteburn and Blisscloud to Thunderclan."
Mintbreeze stared at her friend and then started to walk away, "Can you finish taking Hazypaw hunting? I need to confront my father."
Sweetsilk nodded, a little fast, and then went off. Mintbreeze stared at her and then began to build anger.
"How could he do this to us!" She yelled out.
"Who do what to who to you?"
Mintbreeze turned quickly to see Silverfrost watching her with a laughing on his face.
"Why are you talking to yourself?"
Mintbreeze blushed under he pelt. "Why are you eavesdropping?!"

"Geez, Hazypaw! Why can't you ever get anything right?!" Mintbreeze snapped.
The bulky young tom looked awkwardly down as his mentor stood over him.
"I refuse to believe you are a pure-blood Windclan cat. Your mother's been with a Thunderclan tom, I can smell it in your blood."
Mintbreeze turned to her bestfriend, Sweetsilk, who was training Hazypaw's sister, Rosepaw.
"Mintbreeze, that is so rude! I can't believe you would insult your cute little apprentice like that! He's trying so hard!"
Mintbreeze snorted, "He's a few moons away from becoming a warrior, and he can't even catch a rabbit! A RABBIT! Its one of the few prey that lives on the moor. Its what we survive on, Sweetsilk. If he can't catch that, then he's only good for stealing the air I breath."
Hazypaw continued to look awkwardly down, his large shoulders shifting back and forth.
Sweetsilk shrugged, "Well then! You really shouldn't be training kits if you can't be kind. H

Mintbreeze approached the barn at the edge of the Windclan territory. Though it wasn't quite abandoned, the white she-cat felt safe there. She walked in, dust flew up from where cows were munching on straws of hay. They payed no attention to the cat as she climbed onto the second floor. There she smelled bird and...
She looked around wildly but there was no sign of any other cats in the barn. She wondered if he lived in the twoleg nest below on the hillside, which was barely lit in the night. She could hear the twolegs meowing inside. The thought of them being a family made her feel worse. She looked around to find a mossy nest created by what seemed like the cat who lived here. She shrugged and nestled down into the warm bed, wondering who would find her in the morning.
Mintbreeze blinked open her eyes, a cat stood before her. His large bluky figure was covered in long smoky black fur. A silver ruff hugged his neck like a mane.

The sun was slowly setting as the aged warrior was lain to rest.
His pelt, a glossy black and white, was withered with age. His muscles, once strong and vibrant, were covered in old battle scars. The brown she cat looked downwards, saddened that her deputy had finally lost his battle against Father Time. Death early in his family was common.
"Badgernose is now with Starclan," said Fogstorm to her young kit, Lushkit. Fogstorm, along with her sister Creekblossom, watched as the elders carried their father to be buried. Their mother, Sunspots, died many moons ago after a raid by Windclan. She hasn't been avenged, yet.
Yewfrost was helping bury her brother. Her black pelt still looked young. She wasn't too old, but her long legs began to crack and twist and she retired early. Twineheart walked next to Yewfrost, the mute she-cat tinged with gray around her muzzle and eyes. Yewfrost would occasionally talk to Twineheart, but she knew she'd never have a

Stormcry's Prophecy --- Chapter 10
"Stormcry, I don't care that you mated with Solemenstar."
"You don't?" Stormcry asked, very confused. She confessed to Splatbelly what happened between her and the Thundreclan leader earlier that day, now over moon ago.
"No. It wont help our kits if they're torn between fathers. We probably wont know if they're Solemnstar's or mine. But I want to be a father to them. I never had a father and my kits deserve the best."
Stormcry cuddled up to her mate. Full of love for him, she felt like her heart would burst. She looked down as she felt a small kick. The kits were growing, and fast. Stormcry's small body could only hold them for a little over a moon and a half more.
From what she could tell, there were two. She desperately hoped that they were Splatbelly's children. He was the one who loved her, no matter what.
The clan hated the idea of Stormcry being a mother.
"I hope your mother and you shared fates." Waspfur said one day later.

Solemnstar jumped onto high rock. "SILENCE!!!"
He jumped down and walked to Stormcry. "STOP BLAMING HER, ALL OF YOU!" He turned to her, "Don't listen to them. It's not about you. Its not you."
Her eyes were wide and watering. She wouldn't cry, but she blurted out, "What about you?!"
Solemnstar looked confused.
"Is it about me? Do you think about me? Do you like me? Is my apprentice your son?!" She said this in barely a whisper, but she was sure the whole clan heard. Splatpaw shifted awkwardly beside his mentor.
Solemnstar didn't say anything. His eyes, though young and lively, looked distant and ancient.
"Come on Splatpaw, let's go get some prey." She said this in a hiss, directed right at her leader. Her love.
Sprinting towards the entrance, Stormcry existed her camp without hesitation. Splatpaw veered off towards Riverclan territory while Stormcry aimed for Shadowclan. The forest was full of snow. Prey was so hard to find. Stormcry thou

Heatwave stood in the center of the camp. Three search groups have been sent out. Loststar stared down the black and dark ginger she-cat.
"I don't know!" Heatwave said somberly. "He ran off when I wasn't paying attention. He was talking about finding Snowmint and helping her, but I told him that, that was foolish."
Loststar sighed heavily. She was getting older; she didn't want this stress.
"Heatwave, take four other warriors with you to Windclan. Ask Rashstar if he's seen Dashpaw. If you run into Snowmint, ask her to come home." Loststar closed her eyes and whispered, "please come home."
Snowmint sat in the corner of her nest. It was raw and scratchy compared to her's in Thunderclan. The wind howled in her ears at all times, the cry of kits for the nursery was maddening. She stared at the ground for a long time before looking up to see Stagwing walking in.
"I brought you a mouse." He said, setting the morsel on the

Stormcry's Prophecy --- Chapter 5
The smell of blood was so intense, Stormpaw wished that she had a tail to cover her small pink nose. Waspfur ran up ahead, her beautiful pelt rippling in the breeze of the moor. The second wave of cats was about to jump into the battle. Stormpaw braced herself, for she had never been in an actual battle. She could feel Bluemoon at her side, urging her to survive.
Waspfur's war scream traveled to the camp. When Stormpaw reached the entrance, a slain cat stared at her cocked eyed, its guts pelted across the dust. She turned her head just in time to see Solemnheart scratching out one cat's eye while a white she-cat jumped on his back and aimed her claws at his shoulders.
Stormpaw flung herself awkwardly on the white cat, pulling apart her ears. The she-cat lunged at Stormpaw, but missed her by an inchworm-length. Stormpaw kicked hard and blood spurted from the white cat's neck. Jumping backwards, the cat fled the camp.

"I think my father is still in love with you." Mintbreeze blurted out. She felt horrible saying it, and a bad taste lingered in her mouth. Snowmint was beautiful and unique looking, of course any tom could fall for her. But why her father! Why did he have to be the first.
Snowmint nodded slowly, "Stagstar will never meet my expectations."
"Expectations?" Mintbreeze suddenly felt like she was talking to Sweetsilk.
"For him to be mine, he would have to be a Thunderclan cat."
Mintbreeze smiled at this. "You should have stayed deputy. Its obvious your loyalty truly lies with your clan." Mintbreeze now felt bad that she accused the cat of breaking up her family.
"My love lies with my mate, Sundeep, and my daughter Fawnsteps. Oh! And her future kittens. They will be related to you as well."
Mintbreeze realized that her aunt, Blisscloud's son would be the father to the new kits. Mintbreeze poked her head out of the warriors den to gaze at her cousin. Th

"This is going to be fantastic!" Inkspot yelled as they walked through the moor.
Mintbreeze smiled at her twin. He had no apprentice and spent his days on patrol hoping no Riverclan cats took their rabbits.
"Its been a while since I've felt pine and leaves under my paws!"
Inkspot was only a tny bit taller than Mintbreeze. He was leaner and more thin in the face, like his father. The dot around his eye didn't extend as far as Mintbreeze's but he had others on his body, like their mother. Mintbreeze wondered why Sweetsilk couldn't find him attractive. 'Maybe she thinks I'm ugly and she's trying to say it nicely,' she thought. She perked up as she realized that Sweetsilk had never had one-on-one time with Silverfrost.
"So Silverfrost is training Hazypaw?" Inkspot asked, almost reading her mind.
Mintbreeze nodded, "Yes, he said he had to stay behind."
As they crossed into fourtrees, Mintbreeze realized that by training Hazypaw, Silverfrost would be a

Greenleaf began to change into leaf-fall. Mintbreeze watched the browning leaves fall to the ground at the bottom of the barn. For a few weeks she had stayed in the barn, killing the mice and rats, plumping up her once slender body. Although she had never tasted the kittypet food offered to her by the twolegs, the icy-cold water they put out was her favorite part of a hot day. Sometimes it was stealing wool from the sheep to add to their bed, with Rye. She finally felt like she was beginning a family.
Rye wanted to know if she'd like kittens, but Mintbreeze was young. She wanted to wait to name a mate and be settled.
But, then one day her old life came back to haunt her.
"Mintbreeze!" Inkspot called to his sister, who was laying in her bed.
"Inkspot!" she yelled down to him, throwing herself into his embrace. "What are you doing here?"
He half-heartedly smiled, a large patch of animal skin wrapped around his lost eye, "Stagstar is ill and wanted

'Stormcry is an awful name' she thought to herself. Waspfur couldn't help but laugh from the nursery as the clan chanted, a memory that Stormcry didn't like to remember.
Its been moons since the attack on Windclan. Stormcry trained harder and harder to prove to her clan that the deaths in her life are not her fault.
Splatkit yawned and stepped out of the nursey. Waspfur had just finished cleaning her only son. He was just as big as Stormcry, and only 6 moons old.
Stormcry never stopped thinking that Solemnstar might be the father. When Splatkit opened his eyes for the first time, they were different colors. One a light blue and the other a green. Solemnstar's were green.
'But a lot of cats have green eyes' Stormcry thought. Waspfur refused to tell who her son's father was. 'If it was the leader, you'd think she'd announce it.'
Stormcry watched as Splatkit walked over to Solemnstar to be given a mentor. She looked around and saw Thorntwist and Th

Opalstar passed away a few days later. The clan fell silent for a leader most of them had for their whole lives. It was a grest surprise when Solemnheart was asked to take over as deputy. He was given an apprentice the moonrise before named Thymepaw.
Sunsteps walked over to Stormpaw before her journey to the moonstone.
"You are an amazing cat, Stormpaw. Don't let anyone make you think differently. Nothing that has happened is your fault." The ginger queen dipped her elegant head and touched Stormpaw's nose.
Her and Gustyfoot then turned and left the camp.
Gustyfoot ran into camp.
"Something's wrong." Stormpaw said as she awoke from her nightmare. A storm had clouded her dream and drowned her thoughts.
His sides were covered in blood and he was heaving.
Stormpaw jumped up and ran out of her nest. It was almost dawn, the moon still vibrant in the purple sky. It seemed so surreal...
Gurgling came from his lungs, as red l

The white she-cat felt so exposed in the newly growing forest. The sun beat down on her coat making her shine, and her face grew hot as the rays attracted to the black on her face.
She then remembered the fox. She stopped where she was and looked around. 'Why didn't any warriors follow me out?'
"They probably wanted me to die." She thought aloud, wanting to cry.
She sat down against a tree wondering when the fox would pick her up. She heard movement expecting the orange canine but instead she smelled Windclan. Her brothers, Lightcharcoal and Sootyfoot jumped next to her. They were followed by Sweetsilk.
"Mintbreeze!" She yelled, bowling her friend over.
"Thank Starclan you're safe. We had a fox in out territory and we wanted to check on you and Inkspot..." Sootyfoot looked around, "Where is Inkspot?"
Mintbreeze explained what happened to her twin with the fox and how he's still with Thunderclan.
"Why can't we just take him to Hazelbean? Sh

Loststar looked out beyond the rock she was sitting on. It was early in the morning, the sun was just barely seen. She breathed in slowly.
Berrysplatter and Heatwave were next to her. They didn't speak for they knew she needed silence.
Beetlewing and Smallpaw were arranging herbs outside their den. It was too nice of a day to work inside. Smallpaw, a small blue-gray she-cat, picked up a leaf with one of her white paws and threw it at Beetlewing. The medicine cat was usually serious and shy, but he made a face and threw it right back at her, cuffing her ear a little in playfulness.
Lushface, the oldest daughter of Fogstorm, and Frostybreeze, the only kit of Creekblossom, were sharing tongues. The two she-cats were best friends and did everything together. They grieved heavily for Dashpaw only a few days before.
Yewfrost and Twineheart were beside the Elder's den. Yewfrost was telling stories to kits and apprentices, and a few warriors, while Twine

Creekblossom ran into camp. Blood splattered her pelt, but Heatwave relaxed when she realized that the blood on her sister's fur was not her's. The calico she-cat looked vertually untouched except that she was breathing heavily.
"There was a small skirmish, by the Riverclan border. There's a wounded Windclan warrior that needs our help--"
"What?!" a large tom jumped up, "Loststar, surely we will let him die! We can't revive a warrior who was sent to kill us!" Murmurers of agreement rose.
Creekblossom's voice became high-pitched and almost pleading. "NO! You don't understand! He was running away from Windclan! His own clan tried to kill him!"
A loud gasp went out around the camp. Heatwave couldn't help but wonder why any cat would run away from their own clan.
Loststar's brown fur flew up in surprise. "Bring him to camp."
Dashpaw poked at the warrior's face. The Windclan tom was out cold, on the brink of death, but
