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

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.

Bramblestar's Nine Lives
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."
It was your typical greenlea

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

Icecloud raked her claws across the ground in frustration. She'd been dreaming again, and had woken up at the very best part. Why did it always turn out like this?
Icecloud close her eyes, hoping her anger would subside if she could remember what had happened in the dream. Lionblaze had come back from hunting solo and padded across the camp toward her. He stopped in front of her, trying to say something, but no words came out. Then, he had pinned her up against the camp wall and kissed her. Just like that. It wasn't very long, but Icecloud had felt like flying. And maybe she had hovered a couple of tail-lengths off the ground, seeing as it was a dream and all.
Icecloud had glanced past her crush to see that Cinderheart was watching. The gray tabby rushed into the warriors' den, swearing. Icecloud yowled after her, "Take that, pretty girl!"
"Icecloud, are you going to lay there all day, staring off into space?" Icecloud forced open her eyes, returning to the real, crapp
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

"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
