Heatedstar came from a warrior forest a couple years back. He was the leader of OceanClan, a clan that lived off the sea. They were great rivals with a clan by the name of Rainclan, but HS always had them under control. Everything went perfectly fine in Oceanclan. Prey was plentiful, and there was absolutely no conflict. It was a perfect life, though Heatedstar hated it. He was overly obsessed with twolegs, or humans, and their strange ways. He would always be examining the humans. He loved the weirdness they seemed to offer. After many, many nights of examining them his mate, Lovevein, started to get angry at him. He was becoming obsessed and she didn’t like it. Convincing her that he was fine took a long time.
One day while Heatedstar was sleeping in his den one of his warriors came and woke him up. They had found some weird cat half dead in the forest who didn’t smell like twolegs, Oceanclan, or Rainclan. Heatedstar told them to help the poor cat, and once it was feeling better they discovered that this cat stood on two legs like a human. They also found out it spoke human. HS was fascinated by this cat, and wanted to learn more from him, while everyone else was terrified by him. The twoleg cat explained how he had gotten here. By something he kept calling magic. Apparently he had made a wrong turn while jumping dimensions and landed in theirs. However that happened. The cat stayed in HS’s den for the time being and started teaching Heatedstar more about the worlds outside of his. How many things there were, how the magic cat had come from a land filled to the brim with cats who walked on their back legs and all held magic in their paws. He also explained about how he was headed to a new cross dimension to start working their and he was going to join the navy, the ocean protectors. Magic cat, as HS started to call him, asked the warrior leader if he would like to come. Without a second thought Heatedstar said yes.
He announced to his clan that he was leaving in the morning. They were devastated, some even told him he had bees in his brain to go with that cat. Heatedstar didn’t care, and he said he would come visit them later on, because he had more to do in his life than just be a cat. His mate wasn’t hurt too bad and respected his decision. Lovevein actually decided to go with him. Magic cat took them to the Wa-kiki-tiki island, which hadn’t been finished yet and it was still under heavy construction. Heatedstar and Lovevein suddenly realized that they both were able to walk on their back paws now. HS was so eager to start this new life that he made sure he joined the navy with magic cat as soon as he could. LV wasn’t so convinced though. She didn’t like the feeling the place had and requested to go back to the forest. Heatedstar promised he would go back and visit her when he could.
Heatedstar’s time in the Navy taught him many things. His new found abilities let him figure out how to do more with the sea than he could ever imagine. He could sail now, float over the water, fish for creatures three time larger than he. He was capable of doing so many new things. His new joy was sailing, and that was his only joy. After years of sailing he had completely forgotten about his clan. Not that it mattered, they would be fine without him. People were much more accepting here, anyway.
Once the island’s tourist attractions were finished the Navy was broken up for some reason. Wa-kiki-tiki’s Navy forces were disbanded and left many of the workers to try and find new jobs. Heatedstar took one of the jobs as a tour guide. He never developed a love for the island. His ‘enthusiasm’ is beyond fake, for he knows more than he’s willing to tell. The founders shared a few too many things with him while they were teaching him about the island. He is the only tour guide after all.
Now he’s been living his days out as a tour guide with many fears of displeasing someone higher up than him. He longs for the sea and his old friends in the Navy. Thoughts of his clan have almost completely vanished from his mind. He tries not to think about much that happened to him and likes to focus on here and now.
Just a couple of weeks ago a man contacted him saying that there was someone at the docks who wanted to see him. Someone by the name of Lovevein. That certain she-cat was back from his clan days. They were indeed mates but they had broken up some time ago from… complications, so to say. Once he got there he met up with Lovevein who really looked like she had been through hell, or something. Her fur was a mess, and she looked really tired. She happened to bring along a little kid with her. At first Heatedstar didn’t even recognize the kid. Didn’t even realize that was his own child until she hugged him.
What Lovevein explained next was a little bit too much for Heatedstar to handle in one moment, She didn’t even let him put in any sort of feedback. It was straight talking with no stop.
“That’s Honeykit, the girl. I don’t really have much time to talk to you, because I really shouldn’t even be here. Rainclan’s warriors attacked our camp about a week ago, no one was expecting it, and our leader didn’t even see it coming. Cobrapaw was murdered in the battle. I don’t even know if you can remember him, but he was killed. Honeykit wasn’t hurt or anything, but I can’t risk anything else. I’m giving her to you, and she’s sick. Very sick. She has green cough, Heatedstar. I’m sure you and your fancy twoleg medicine can heal her, but I’m not risking keeping her and having her murdered like Cobrapaw. You’ve got to take care of her for me.”
She had started crying somewhere in the middle. Heatedstar couldn’t remember at what part. The whole time he was just kinds staring at her, not even understanding how she was here, and that his son had actually been killed. Lovevein was gone as quick as she came. The last thing she gave him was a quick hug and she was off. Leaving HS with a little girl he had never really met.
He watched her go and then looked down at the little girl holding his hand. Sure, he remembered when she was born, but he left almost right after that, so it wasn’t like he knew her or anything like that. She seemed to have grown up fast. It was a shame that she was sick though. He could take care of that, and then they could get to know each other. She would fit in just fine on the island! He just hoped he could get used to having her around.
A couple days after that he had taken her over to the doctors to start getting medicine for her green cough. Heatedstar had told the doctors exactly what it was, but they started calling it something else. He couldn’t remember what it was, but apparently it was fatal. Heatedstar tried to correct them and tell them that it wasn’t. He had seen plenty of cats get better after a case of green cough. Sure it was a little bit difficult, but you could make it out with some proper medical help. He even told them the cure. Once they said that getting that cure would take weeks, and it might not even work, Heatedstar got angry. He said that even feral cats could cure this, yet humans who went to medical school couldn’t? He left in a fit of rage. A rash decision on his part not to listen to the doctors. It hit him later that night about exactly what was probably going to happen.
Honeykit would die in about a month, maybe two if she was lucky.
He cried that night. It was probably the first time he’s cried in ten years. Crying over a daughter he just now started to get to know, and now she would be taken just like that. He had made a secret promise to himself a couple of days after that. He was going to make sure that she understood that he really cared about her. He was going to make sure the last couple of weeks she had were the best she could get.
He enlisted two people in his little project. The two people he trusted most on the whole island. Sophie, and surprisingly, Aeon. He really didn’t want to upset either of them, but he needed some sort of help. He wasn’t exactly good at taking care of a child, and entertaining her at the same time. He had made Sophie cry when he told her, and it seemed like Aeon was just as upset. They both agreed, even though it was a huge responsibility. That meant more to Heatedstar than he could ever express in any sort of language.
