Dark green grass was pressed to the ground by soft-padded paws as they walked toward the tiny hollow. A white half moon shone bright in the sky, showing it was time for the medicine cats to meet. Silence seemed to float in the air as Jayfeather followed the other medicine cats' footsteps. None of the cats had talked on the trek up here.
As Jayfeather headed down the slope to the moonpool, his mind wandered to his power. He could walk in other cats' dreams. But he didn't want to tonight. He wanted to have his own dreams. The tabby tom wasn't sure what he wanted them to be about, but he hadn't spoken with Starclan in what seemed like moons.
When Jayfeather felt flat ground beneath his paws again, he pricked his ears for the shuffling of the other medicine cats lying down at the pool's edge. He took a couple steps forward and slowly reclined himself. He was about to lean forward to sip some of the starry water, when he heard Littlecloud's high-pitched meow.

A single water drop slid down the leaf, flattening out and curling into a drop again. As it neared the bottom of the leaf, it sped up and clung to the edge. For several heartbeats, it dangled there, swinging from side to side. Finally, it plunged toward the ground, and splashed into white fur.
Icecloud sat up, looking down at her nest. Moss was sticking up in some places and flattened out in others, like she'd been tossing and turning all night. Her dreams had they been happy? Or tragic? She couldn't remember. Judging by her nest, the young white she-cat guessed it had been a nightmare again, though it wasn't too far from the waking world. She was living a nightmare.
Rain pattered softly on the ground outside, lulling the warriors to sleep. Despite the chilly air outside, it was warm in here. The cats were all pressed against one another, and their warm breath filled the warriors' den. Oh, the sound of falling rain was so peaceful. Icecloud could just forget all this and go

Moonlight shone off the treetops, turning the forest silver. Crickets chirped from atop the branches as a soft greenleaf breeze whispered through the forest, carrying the tantalizing scent of fresh-kill hiding in their burrows across the long grass. The moon was nothing more than the thinnest of clawscratches, but the stars shone clear and white on the lake below.
A twig snapped in the undergrowth. Brambleclaw slowly lifted his paw, and glanced at the ground below him. Under the hazel thicket he was standing in was a pile of leaves from last leaf-fall, crumpled and dead. More twigs spread across the forest floor as well. Carefully, Brambleclaw stepped around the twigs, emerging into a small clearing.
"You don't have to be so careful, you know," came Leafpool's voice from behind him. "There's no one out here but us."
"I know, but I still don't know whether Starclan will accept me! I am Tigerstar's son, after all."
"Starclan has shown their ap

"That was such an amazing catch!" Icepaw gasped. "Do you think Whitewing is training me as much as Ashfur's training you?"
"I'm sure Whitewing will give you all the training you need," Lionpaw assured her.
"You're such a great hunter," she mumbled around a mouthful of vole.
"I thought Hollypaw was good, but you're amazing! Can you teach me how to leap like that?"
Lionpaw was silent for a few heartbeats. Icepaw gazed at him intently, waiting for his answer.
"All right," he sighed at last. "We can go hunting tomorrow, just us. I'll try to teach you my technique then."
"Sounds great!" Icepaw chirped. "I'll see you there!" the snow-colored apprentice added as she bounded feistily away.
Icepaw's fur was puffed up with excitement as she ran toward Lionpaw. The golden apprentice was standing at the thorn barrier, his amber eyes friendly. "Are you ready?" he asked as she approached. "Am I ever!" She grinned at him. "Alright, then." he mewed. "Let's go."

The Bad DreamThe forest was filled with the sounds of greenleaf, with squirrels chattering high in the trees and birds chirping high in the deep blue sky. The trees were bursting with lush green leaves, their branches swaying in the warm breeze. Icecloud padded out of the camp with Foxleap behind her, purring at the soft feel of the grass underpaw. It was a gorgeous day for hunting.The Bad Dream in Short Stories More Like This
"So where to first?" her brother asked, looking around.
"Good question." Icecloud narrowed her eyes. "It doesn't really matter to me. There should be plenty of prey out today."
The two siblings took a leisurely stroll through the shady forest. It wasn't long until Icecloud scented a squirrel, and began to stalk it. She almost had it when Foxleap jabbed his paw into her side, causing her to jump. The sound of her paws hitting the ground sent the squirrel sprinting up the nearest tree.
"What was that for?" she snapped. "I almost had that juicy thing!"
"Icepaw, get up!" he said. "It's time to go."
"But we haven't caught an

Rainkit could hear yowling, could see the huge hole yawning out of the ground. His paws twitched uneasily as he spotted the two cats tumbling straight toward it. Frostkit and Thrushkit? What were they doing out in the forest? They were wrestling across the grass and were completely unaware of the break in the ground. They were going to fall in! Anything could get them down there
Rainkit ran toward his sister, his paws burning with fear. He had to stop them! Rainkit quickened his pace, heading for the hole.
Rainkit felt his head ram into something as hard as rock, completely out of nowhere. His mind spinning, the pale gray tom collapsed onto the dirt. As his vision straightened again, he could see the nursery wall stretching out in front of him. His head still vibrated at the spot he'd rammed into the wall. Grunting, he tried to shake the pain out of himself.
What was with the running in the forest? He hadn't fallen asleepno cat ran in their sleep! And it

"Icecloud! Get up! We're gonna have battle training today!"
Icecloud stood up, her legs aching. Why had they planned the training session so early? Cherrypaw was standing at the entrance to the warriors' den, looking impatient. A cold wind slashed through the shelter of the bramble bush, and Icecloud growled in frustration.
"I'm coming," she muttered. "Where's your brother?"
"With the other apprentices!" Cherrypaw growled. "They're waiting on us!"
Icecloud followed the bouncy ginger she-cat across the camp. She remembered last moon how she and Foxleap had been given Cherrypaw and Molepaw as their apprentices. She hadn't been more excited at the chance to train and talk with Lionblaze. They did talk some, although Icecloud wouldn't call them any more than acquaintances. Cinderheart had grown bad-tempered by the white cat's presence around her boyfriend, and her apprentice Ivypaw copied her mentor's behavior. Icecloud wasn't sure why Ivypaw was so grumpy, but she guessed it was be

I can't take it anymore!
Icecloud bared her teeth at Cinderheart. Oh, how she would love to dig her teeth into that stupid tabby's back, and hear her girly scream. The things she would do to her if they weren't in the same clan!
Icecloud shook the thoughts out of her head. She had to get out of here there was no way she could sleep after all that. She needed some time to think away from her crush and his bitchy girlfriend.
Icecloud carefully made her warrior over the furry backs of the sleeping warriors. Coudtail snorted and rolled over, and she froze in midstep. Her heart pounded out of her chest as she eased her paws over him, one by one. The white she-cat cleared Dustpelt's sleeping body in one leap, and padded out into the rain.
It wasn't the kind of rain that comes in leaf-bare, chilling your bnes and soaking your face. No, this was soft, gentle greenleaf rain, the kind that apprentices catch on their tongue.
It pattered softly on the ground, falling onto the alre

Fireheart's thoughts were lightly interrupted by the high tone of Cinderpaw's voice.
"So you two were from the same clan?" Silverpelt blinked and slowly shook her head from side to side.
"No, I'm not a forest cat," meowed Silverpelt with a glint of amusement in her voice. Cinderpaw exchanged a puzzled look with Fireheart, who clearly didn't expect that answer.
"Where are you from?" asked Cinderpaw.
"I used to live next to your clan's territory. Near the tallpines," answered Silverpelt as she gazed blankly away.
"Tallpines... But that's near the Twolegplace," remarked Fireheart with a confused look.
"Yes, I lived there with my humans," Silverpelt affirmed simply. Cinderpaw gasped lightly and heaved herself up. She exclaimed "but, that makes you a-"

"Can we really trust them?" asked Longtail, who was still on his guard despite the tension having died down.
"Of course not!" snapped Tigerclaw, his amber eyes glaring at the she-cat. Fireheart turned to face Tigerclaw. His deputy clearly seemed angered by his defeat and was determined to chase those two out of ThunderClan's territory. Fireheart cleared his throat before adressing his deputy.
"Tigerclaw, maybe we should consider her request. If she wishes to speak with Bluestar then perhaps you should-"
"Don't tell me what I should do kittypet!" spat Tigerclaw. Fireheart felt a flash of annoyance at his deputy's words. "I'm not going to let some rogue cats penetrate into camp. You're a mouse-brained idiot for even thinking of considering her request."
Fireheart lashed his tail in frustration, his fur bristling with anger at Tigerclaw, but he knew it was fear that made his deputy so furious. Fireheart remembered the time when he went on the journey for highstones, a journey that every a

Warm shafts of sunlight penetrated through the entrance of the medicine cat's den. Long thin grass had spread along the entrance, swaying and dancing with every passing breeze. It nearly covered the entire hole, only allowing little strings of light to flicker over the beautiful white's pelt. Cleansoul woke with a sour taste in her mouth, and as she inhaled in a yawn, she found herself choking under so much heat. The she-cat wasn't used to such heavy weather. During her kithood, she thought that twolegs could control the weather. It was never too cold nor too hot in her twoleg's nest. Everything was so different now. There were no twolegs to control the weather anymore, she'd have to endure whatever the forest threw at her. But when she inhaled again, she ended up coughing violently. Suffocating, but not from the heat this time; the strong smell of herbs filled the medicine cat's den, overtaking all other smells.
This boiling temperature must have dried most of the herbs up, she

"There will be a moment of hesitation... Followed with endless sadness... The time has come for Regrets and Sorrow."
It was now the third time that Silverpelt had heard this prophecy, yet she still shuddered upon hearing these words. They held so much importance, that it made Silverpelt wonder of their true meaning. Was the forest destined for disaster?
Silverpelt opened her eyes with a start and shifted them on a golden tabby, who was holding on to the ground as the wind intensified around him. It was Crookedstar, the third leader to share dreams with her. But, what was he doing? Why was he holding on? The prophecy was told, he was supposed to be blown back to life. Crookedstar held on, but he was violently shaken by the storm that raged in his face.
"Oakheart," he yowled desperately. "I don't understand. Who are those cats and what will cause regrets and sorrow to fall upon our clan? Upon the forest?"
A heavy silence followed his words. It was as if Silverpelt had

"She's in StarClan now," meowed Sharkface in his usual gravelly tone. Fireheart jerked his head up, startled by the sudden voice. At the sight of the massive tom, rage surged through Fireheart's veins. He glared with deep hatred at the tom. Tigerclaw was right, they shouldn't have trusted them. Guilt slightly spread into his heart. If it wasn't for him, Bluestar would have still been alive. What was to become of Thunderclan now? Were they doomed for destruction? But another thought flashed in Fireheart's mind, sending a chill shudder into his spine. Tigerclaw was Thunderclan's deputy, so he was to take over as their new leader; Bluestar's successor. Was Tigerclaw's treachery never to be revealed? Oh StarClan, why did you allow this to happen...
"Relax, young warrior," Sharkface murmured with narrowed eyes. Fireheart had not realized, but his body was shaking like a leaf in a tree during a storm. But his trembling was due to a mixture of two different feelings; fear and anger. Hi

It was past Sunhigh; the sun was beginning to drop towards the horizon, though the sky was still bright and clear overhead.
Fireheart had just returned to camp after a hunting session with his apprentice, his nephew Cloudpaw, though here was a lot going on in the fiery coloured tomcat's head. Most of it was the anger he was holding back after an argument with his apprentice. The young irresponsible tom had caught a pigeon, but nearly lost it because of his imprudence and his lack of attention. Not only that, but Cloudpaw had showed little respect to the life he was taking away. Of course, Fireheart scolded him for his behaviour, but Cloudpaw had a mind of his own and refused to be taught.
What was harder for Fireheart's conscious was that he felt somewhat responsible for this kit's doing. Not because he was his mentor, but because he was the one bringing the kit into the clan. Cloudpaw was his sister's son, and Fireheart wanted to make her proud, not make her regret her decision. She t

"Bluestar, it's me," called Silverpelt in front of the leader's den. Looking over her shoulder, she realized that some of the stars had already appeared in the sky. The night was slowly taking over the heavens, and so, taking over her. She could feel the exhaustion slowly crawling up her legs. Soon, she'd fall asleep and leave flesh and bone behind.
"Come in," Bluestar answered, snapping the she-cat out of her thoughts.
Silverpelt slowly padded into the den. She noticed a half eaten mouse in the corner of the den. The mouse was rather small, so why hadn't Bluestar finished it? Was she still having a hard time finding her appetite? Silverpelt decided to shift her attention from that matter and settled her gaze on Bluestar. Bluestar was neatly tucked on her mossy bed, her coat well groomed, but clinged to her frame as it showed the outline of her ribs quite well. Silverpelt then wondered if she might look the same, as it has been several days now since she ate something. Starclan always

"Please Yellowfang, tell me what happened," pleaded Silverpelt, her gaze focused on the elderly she-cat. She couldn't bear watching these cats carry on with their duties in such conditions, with pain clinging to their legs. Silverpelt searched the medicine cat's eyes for any sign of emotion, but they were dull and unreadable. Yellowfang suddenly spoke.
"What you're looking at, is the result on an invasion. Thunderclan's camp was attacked by a group of rogue cats. Tigerclaw was in charge of the assault."
Silverpelt sighed sadly. She couldn't understand how a cat could be so cruel towards his own kind, his own family. The cats that had grown and shared everything with him. Those who taught and loved him... Tigerclaw's ambitions had finally taken the better out of him. Would he ever feel regret for the things he had done? Yellowfang's steps came to a halt in front of the leader's den. The lichen that once hung over the entrance of the den were now shredded and cut out of the way. Silverpe
