KittyKatKalled Chapter 6
When Mintyheart woke, the sun was just starting to poke up from the horizon. I need a good run. The silver and black tom thought. He was just about to step out of the warriors den when he heard a soft whisper. "Where are you going?" Turning back he saw Spiceheart's eyes glowing in the dark den. "Just out for a run. Maybe grab a mouse. Do you want to meet me in the training hollow with Palepaw and Foxpaw?"
"Sure. I'll be there when the sun touches the tops of the trees." She mewed and rested her chin back on her nest.
Mintyheart's paws kicked up leaves as he raced out of camp. Remembering what Blazingstar said last night he avoided the border with Shadeclan and ran to the stream that bordered his territory and Meadowclan's. Slowing down to a jog he continued up stream. After some time he halted and decided to work on making his paws as silent a possible. After a few passes he was sure he was doing fine. I know I'll be on soft pine needles in Shadeclan's territory He thought, but I want

The sun was hovering over the tree tops and the cats of Forestclan were in a state of tense relaxation. The Gathering was tonight, and things were still tense between them and the other clans, mostly Shadeclan. There were still signs that Shadeclan warriors were crossing the border but none of the patrols had caught any warriors. Mintyheart was sharing a squirrel with Maplefur who was mewing on about something, but he didn't seem to be listening very well, there was a shimmer of anticipation in his eyes. Foxpaw, Shimmerpaw, and Echopaw were in a circle all sharing tongues while Palepaw looked on nervously, as if all three she-cats might leap at him. Blazingstar was making small talk with both Spiceheart and Winterstorm, while Sunstone mewed to Adderfang about how well Echopaw did in the apprentice tournament earlier that day. The camp's tunnel shook and Icecloud padded in at a brisk pace with a mouse and two birds in his jaws. He dropped them near the fresh kill pile and headed right t

Leopardkit awoke from her nap to the sound of voices. She looked up from her mother's nest and opened her jaws in a big yawn. She noticed that Pinekit and Ashkit were gone, and so were Cedarkit, Moonkit and Ryekit, too.
Leopardkit heard more voices and recognized the sound of her brother outside. She then heard Moonkit's voice, too. She slowly rose up, being careful not to disturb Honeywhisker, who was taking a nap, and crept toward the outside of the nursery.
As she grew closer, the voices grew louder.
"That's minnow-brained!" a cat snapped.
It was Pinekit.
"No it's not!"
Leopardkit recognized that annoying squeal anywhere: Moonkit.
"Shh! Be quiet, Moonkit!"
"I'm just saying, Cedarkit…"
"Well, you're being too loud."
"No I'm not!"
It was Ashkit who spoke next.
"Guys, be quiet! The others might hear us!"
"Well who can't?"
"Shut up, Ryekit."
"Be nice, Moonkit."
"You're not my mother, Pinekit!"
"We're getting off topic, here."

"Ryekit!" Leopardkit yowled.
Her friend only stared in horror as the giant bird came closer and closer to him. He let out a wail of pain as the bird's talons wrapped around his tiny body. For a second, it seemed that Ryekit was a goner…until and unexpected hero leapt on the bird's leg and bite down hard. The bird screeched and released Ryekit from its deadly grip. Before it could fly away, Redstar launched himself at the bird, with Whitescar and Flyingcloud not far behind. The bird shook all three warriors off, and flew away.
"Ryekit!" Softbelly wailed and ran to her injured kit. Ryekit slowly got up as his mother furiously searched over him. Ryekit only had talon marks on his back with blood seeping from them. "Bubblespots!"
"I'm here," the medicine cat called and rushed over to the queen and her kit. She was a pale blue-gray she-cat with paler spots and gleaming blue eyes. Quailpaw followed her, while carrying a mouthful of herbs. He stopped and smiled at Leopardkit before rus

"Evening patrol," Blackfrost asked the patrol—comprising of Viperstrike, Steelclaw, Cedarpaw and Ryepaw. "Have anything to report?"
"Yes, actually," Steelclaw meowed. "We came across some rogue scent when we marked the PineClan border." His gray tabby fur rose on his neck. "About three or four of them, from the scent."
Viperstrike let out a low growl and flicked his right ear, which was torn. "I bet a moon of dawn patrols that I recognized one of the rogue's scent. They must have been the same ones who've ambushed Whitescar, Cedarpaw and I two moons ago!"
By now, Redstar had heard the report and came up to stand next to his deputy. Claw marks bore upon his throat where Rumblestar, the leader of PineClan, had brutally attacked him.
"Hmm…" the dark red tabby leader meowed. "If these rogues were the same ones who killed Whitescar, then we must take caution. For now on, no one must go alone and not after dark, and apprentices shall not leave camp without a warrior."
"I'll alert the other c

"Hurry up, Leopardpaw!" Cedarstep snapped. "You are slower than a dorm mouse!"
You're not my mentor.
Leopardpaw bit back the retort she wanted to say, but decided it was better to keep her mouth shut. The dark brown tabby had become a warrior last moon, along with his sisters—Lilybreeze and Otterwhisker—and now he acted like a senior warrior.
You're only two moons old than me, anyway…
"Cedarstep," Ryepaw meowed to the tom. "She's only been put back on patrols. Maybe you should go easy on her."
Cedarstep let out a snort of disbelief. "Well, I'm not the one who decided to sneak away with Quailpaw and go to the Tree of Life! She's should know better!"
Leopardpaw clenched her teeth. When she and Quailpaw had come home from the Tree of Life last moon, the whole Clan had thought the two were caught by SavageClan. Redstar had ordered search parties until the two came home the next day. Her father—scratch that—Blackfrost, had been worried sick about her and ordered

In the darkness of the cloudy sky, cats were gathered in an alleyway that had a dead end on one side and the entrance from the thunderpath on the other. A gigantic square shiny prison with hard bars around the sides held a scared ginger she-cat. All the cats that were around the prison watched her try to break out of it. They laughed every time she tried to headbutt her way out, but it was fruitless. There was no way for her to escape without an item that opened the entrance. The she-cat started to yell, "I just want to find my mate. Please..." She broke into tears. "Please just let me go."
"You have a mate?" A shadow appeared out of the mass of cats and approached the ginger she-cat. Only the gleam of his peculiar smile from the light of the waning moon could be seen. Its voice was hauntingly deep. "I'm sorry for taking you away from him, but I sense in your eyes that your love wasn't very... credible."
"My love for him is true! Please let me see him again!"

"Yes, I will," Leopardpaw meowed.
Quailpaw flashed her a grateful glance. "Alright, come on. I know the way."
Without anyone noticing (stupid Clanmates XD), the two apprentices slipped away from the Gathering patrol.
"We have to cross BrambleClan territory to get to the Tree of Life," Quailpaw meowed as they began their trek.
"What's it like?" Leopardpaw asked.
"The Tree of Life is a large tree not far from the BrambleClan territory," Quailpaw explained. "It has large roots that create a small cavern underneath. When the moon shines, the light shines through the small holes on the roof and it glows the entire room."
"Wow…" Leopardpaw meowed. "It sounds amazing!"
Quailpaw nodded as he continued to lead the way. The two crossed through the BrambleClan territory, and thankfully they didn't meet any night patrols, and soon they left it and entered and denser forest.
"Um…are you sure we're heading the right way?" Leopardpaw asked her friend.
"I'm pretty sure," Quailpaw meowed, though

"Is Redstar allowing you to come to the Gathering tonight?" Pinepaw asked his denmate, Cedarpaw, as all the apprentices were eating fresh-kill.
Cedarpaw took a huge bite of a mouse. "Yup," he meowed and swallowed his mouthful. "You?"
"Yup!" Pinepaw meowed. He looked over to his sister, who was blankly staring at her water vole. "What about you, Leopardpaw?"
Leopardpaw did not answer her brother, but kept starring at her fresh-kill and letting her mind wander.
"LEOPARDPAW!" Pinepaw growled, snapping his sister out of her trance.
"Huh? What!" Leopardpaw growled back, escaping her trance.
"Is Redstar letting you come to the Gathering?" Pinepaw asked blandly, annoyed.
"Of course!" Leopardpaw snapped, causing the rest of the apprentices to stare at her.
"Are you alright, Leopardpaw?" Ryepaw asked her.
"I'm fine," Leopardpaw meowed. "I better get Quailpaw and Bubblespots something to eat," she meowed as she quickly changed the subject. She grabbed two mice from the pile and quickly we
Warriors: Dusk Ch 4Drake woke up with the same things the previous morning. He started by eating the berries he knocked away and watched some twolegs pass by the path next to his hiding place. They always looked so happy and content, no worries in the world.Warriors: Dusk Ch 41 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
With the rising sun, Drake pondered what he would do. Would he say no and continue a loner or hope to be with another twoleg, or should he join the ranks of the clans to become brave and help them? The choice might have been clear the first time he thought of it, but when he thought of the risk of getting killed, it made him shiver. BloodClan was infamous and cruel, and they also wanted him to face a cat named Sol who sounded just as dangerous as BloodClan. Drake slid out of the bush and shook the leaves off his fur. He looked at the huge stones on the horizon and saw the closest one. That must be Highstones, he thought. With a quick start, he followed the path laid out in front of him.
Around him was a big field with high grass. The sky was cloudy w

I don't remember much about my past. I was born in SavageClan—originally called Savage when I was born. Our leader was Scar Belly, and he was very curious about the Clans. He would often disappear for a few hours and come back and tell us all about Clan life. He admired the Clans and tried to bring their ways into our group. He renamed his name to Scarred Claws, though he did not receive the nine lives like the Clan leaders did, and we didn't believe in StarClan. His ideas were successful at first…but soon things went horribly wrong…
Scarred Claws was killed by a monster on a Thunderpath and there was no body. Smoke Foot became leader—renamed Smoke Claw—and still followed the rules that Scarred Claws had laid out, but he added his own 'twist' to it.
He created his own 'warrior code' and created harsh rules for it. Any cat was killed when they tried to leave or tried to speak out against the Clan, our ways or against Smoke Claw. Smoke Claw also demanded absolute loyalty and expec
Warriors: Dusk Ch. 14 "StoneClan, attack!"Warriors: Dusk Ch. 141 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
Echopaw's order vibrated the walls themselves followed by multiple "mreow"s from StoneClan, Twoleg cats, and Poisons. The Poison cats were the first to start fighting, taking on the group from all directions. StoneClan and the twoleg cats were out numbered, 15 to 12, but they had fully trained warriors with them. Echopaw saw this as the opportunity to utilize his newly attained skills.
As the rear of the group collided with one half of the Poisons, Echopaw and the front shot towards the Poison commander. The Poison cats, as determined as ever, tried to block their way with their seemingly strong muscle builds. They weren't strong enough, however, to hold back Silas and Squirrelflight, breaking apart the wall of cats with one crash. Dawnpaw rushed to join the fray after witnessing the upper paw they had on the Poisons. Not the ones to give up, though, the Poisons quickly retaliated by jumping onto Silas and Okani. Dawnpaw hurried to their aid while Squirrel

The tunnel seemed vast, but it wasn't. The walls and ceiling were about four tail-lengths across from each other and from the ground. Wood was the walls until they went deeper and changed to plain dirt. Wekk was ahead of Echopaw and Glaive as they talked with each other. Glaive and Wekk's metal feet stomped heavily and vibrated the ground. The arid smell of the tunnel plugged Echopaw's nose. The only lights that lit up the tunnel was strange fires on the walls held by wood.
Glaive faced Echopaw, still walking. "I know. Plenty of my new messengers started with that phrase when they first met me too."
"First, why did the Twolegs capture me? My group and I could have done just fine finding your den."
Glaive rolled his eyes. "My owners? Hey, blame them on that one. Sometimes they don't do exactly what I want. They listen to me well though. Through various questions, I got to tell them to look out for a group

The group was now walking through the sand of the beach to find a way up the cliff. Lionblaze was talking with Dovewing, probably about how Jayfeather would help a lot right now again. Isle and most of the Twoleg cats were with Squirrelflight again, listening to her stories. Even Cinsen and Jax forced themselves to be entertained by her experiences. Thor was up with Okani, though, being silent as ever. Echopaw was clumsily slipping in the sand constantly because he couldn't focus on where he was walking. His mind was still holding that dream in his heart, making it ache every time he thought of Gingerpaw. He held her life in his paws.
Dawnpaw's eyes narrowed to look into his. "Echopaw... No." She realized my familiar expression. "You had another vision didn't you?! Was it from StarClan this time?"
"No Dawnpaw. It wasn't. It

Dawnpaw walked next to Silas. The sun was still high in the sky, but the cats knew the season was beginning to be unforgiving. The sun would set quickly and catch the cats in a difficult position if they weren't careful. The dens around them were huge. Twolegs were all over the place, but luckily, the cats were going around most of the twoleg obstacles. They tried to stay on the grassy edge of the twolegplace, but soon the grass would end and come upon a jumble of more twoleg dens. Echopaw got closer to their conversation.
Silas looked at Dawnpaw. "We will have difficulty traveling in the daylight, but there is another option we have. This decision is up to you." He turned to Echopaw who was silently stalking them. "Either we travel the twolegplace during the night only and find shelter during the day, or we can travel through the Poisons' territory."
Echopaw was stupified. "Poisons? Who are th

From the moment we rushed into battle, everything was a blur, it seemed as everything was moving, and waiting for time to catch up.
I looked around silently for a heartbeat, before lunging forward, attacking the nearest fox, which happened to be a huge white one, for my friends, except Firepaw of course, this would have been a bad idea, but, I was a fighter by heart, and knocked it over, it noticed me, and gave me a fox verion of a laugh, before snapping at me with its long fangs.
Suddenly a blur passed in front of me and the fox had a bleeding forehead, I looked toward the ginger blur and nodded.

All three apprentices stared wide-eyed as a black tom stepped out of the shadows. He had a white spot on his back and gleaming green eyes. Leopardpaw recognized the tom at once.
"It's you!" Leopardpaw yowled. "You were the one who attacked Quailpaw and me a moon ago!"
The black tom bent back his ears. "Yeah, I'm really sorry about that. I didn't mean to. I was ordered to attack any cats that I would meet."
Leopardpaw let out a low growl. "'Sorry' catches no prey!" she snapped and bunched up her muscles to attack the strange cat. But before she could, Pinepaw laid his striped tail on her shoulder.
"Wait, Leopardpaw!" Pinepaw meowed. "We need to know more about this cat before you could shred him."
His littermate let out a snort. "Fine," she growled and sat down.
Pinepaw twitched his ears. "Okay, first off, who are you?"

The newly named warrior, Leopardnose, kept her ears pricked and her senses sharp as she scanned for any sign of danger. So far, none.
She and her brothers—now Pineheart and Ashwhisker—were finally made warriors the previous night. That's also when Quailpaw rushed into the camp with wounds on his pelt and fear in his eyes. He came with a dreadful message…
Leopardnose turned her head back to see Quailpaw with his muzzle pressed deeply into a cat's fur. The she-cat's pale blue-gray pelt with lighter spots was covered with wounds and dried blood and her once bright blue eyes now stared dully into space.
Quailpaw had rushed into camp, saying that the two were checking on the herbs and see if they were still alive. That's when SavageClan attacked. They attacked briskly and deadly, and, just like Whitescar, Bubblespots was dead. Quailpaw had managed to rush back to camp to tell the horrible news. Redstar immediately sent patrols to retrieve Bubblespots' body and search for any signs of the Sa

Echopaw hurried down the tunnel, the putrid air flowing off his fur at a high speed. He was running not for his own life, but for the life of another. With agonizing determination, he kept gaining speed. The tunnel was too small to have any lights above him, so he followed the dim light coming from the room far ahead.
"My time was wasted because of your friends!"
Echopaw felt the feeling of undying valor. He would not let Gingerpaw die after he made that promise to Crowpaw and Dawnpaw.
"This occurrence made me realize that this was all because of you!"
The light was getting closer. Echopaw felt like his feet weren't touching the ground anymore. The sensation inside him was... righteous. The vision will not come true!
"Your usefulness has drawn thin." The dark tabby hissed.
He was out of time. Now or never!
"With our brother dead, so shall you share the same fate!"
Echopaw appeared at the exit to the tunnel, not stopping for anything. He saw where the tom was, hol

"Lilyspirit, please, we have to move him to my den." Vinetail urged. I let a low growl, that spoke of my displeasure, and earned me a look from my Tribe mates, but what did it matter? They didn't realize how much I needed this apprentice; I am old, not as young as I used to be.
