Ch.6: Sasha’s Trilogy: The Strifecopyright protection14PENANAHohaA3YQf4

  I walk in the forest. I’m a loner. I’ve been thinking of becoming a Thunderclan cat. I’ve already become friends with Thunderclan. I’ve also become familiar with Thunderclan territory. I’ve walked in it time and time again.copyright protection14PENANAT3Po5BWh3w

            I stop. I smell a cat. It’s Thunderclan thankfully.copyright protection14PENANAphkoH9Gwu7

            I go to Graystripe.copyright protection14PENANAcbwtl6xkXM

            “Hi, Graystripe.”copyright protection14PENANApQPfeUQbcU

            “Hi, Sasha. What are you doing here?”copyright protection14PENANAIBb20ScGoG

            “I want to talk to Firestar about joining the clan.”copyright protection14PENANANBRk5drCyo

            “Okay; come with me.”copyright protection14PENANAoYeedt94Em

            With that, he leads me to the camp and then to Firestar’s den.copyright protection14PENANAYmY9pY2CEq

            “Firestar, Sasha would like to talk to you,” he addresses his old friend.copyright protection14PENANAjs1bM6pdJY

            “Come in, Sasha.”copyright protection14PENANAB8WQmajweY

            I obey and the old deputy leaves.copyright protection14PENANASclQmKOont

            “Sasha, what is this about joining the clan? Do you realize everything you’ll miss? Clan cats don’t have as much freedom as you think. We have jobs to do. But you probably already know that.”copyright protection14PENANAPHWRSIYiWH

            “I know. I want to join, though.”copyright protection14PENANAgyPdpcnJIB

            “Alright, you may. Follow me.”copyright protection14PENANAHBO3raNgyb

            We go out onto the high ledge  and he announces to the clan that I’m going to join.copyright protection14PENANAJoSFfLod3l

            “But she was once Tigerstar’s mate. How can we trust her?” Mousefur says.copyright protection14PENANAUkUKxjWU2F

            “Yeah; I agree,” Frostfur protests. “Sasha isn’t cut out to be a clan cat. I don’t mean anything,” she adds, apparently seeing him lashing his tail and the hurt in his eyes. I guess he must be thinking that she’s talking about him when he was a kittypet.copyright protection14PENANAvKgkNHuBY3

            “Silence!” It’s Graystripe who gives the order. “All of you!” He goes to stand in front of the high ledge. “Why do you say that Frostfur? Firestar is an example that any cat can live in a clan. Sasha may not be such a cat now, but I think someday, she’ll be a mighty warrior. And Mousefur, Brambleclaw here is an example that every relation to Tigerstar isn’t bad.”copyright protection14PENANANHrFnGrLUu

            “Thanks, Graystripe,” Firestar thanks his longtime friend.copyright protection14PENANA6PO0zmkwgn

            Firestar soon gives me a ceremony, but keeps my name as is. He then has my mentor be Sandstorm. I learn how to hunt and fight as a warrior, harder than the apprentices. My warrior training goes on for a moon or so, until I finally have my warrior ceremony. I am now Sasha the warrior.copyright protection14PENANAbM7s6V9Bw7

            One moon later, I’m patrolling with other cats, when suddenly, Tawnypelt with her kits are spotted.copyright protection14PENANAEjP6ZcNqYH

            “Everything’s wrong,” she says to me. It’s muffled by Dawnkit’s scruff.copyright protection14PENANAV5wK666qCm

            “It’s okay. Just tell me what’s wrong,” I say, trying to soothe her.copyright protection14PENANANO9VgfQqQn

            “Shadowclan doesn’t like Blackstar and now, they’re slowly leaving the clan. The clan, I’m afraid, will separate into rogues, loners, and kittypets. I don’t want to be part of a clan like that.”copyright protection14PENANAxvHnBGAo7y

            “Okay; let’s get you to the camp,” I say.copyright protection14PENANA63DCNJIT9l

            “I don’t think so. She’s still Shadowclan,” disagreed Dustpelt.copyright protection14PENANAgX9pSpFJPw

            “But she’s Brambleclaw’s sister and my daughter, and you know you can trust me.”copyright protection14PENANA6n1OKDuk1C

            “Fine,” he says disapprovingly.copyright protection14PENANAT8FwKtftmp

            My daughter picks up Dawnkit, I pick up Flamekit, and Tigerkit follows.copyright protection14PENANAPDnY3foJZd

            “Tawnypelt!” Brambleclaw and Firestar greet.copyright protection14PENANAf5BhUmUoHW

            They come over to us and I tell them the situation.copyright protection14PENANA1A4G6Pamjw

            Firestar says to her, “You may stay as long as you’d like.”copyright protection14PENANAM8a97epvXo

            “Thanks, Firestar.”copyright protection14PENANAJdukuoHpNo

            “You’re welcome.”copyright protection14PENANAlPYqw5gGsz

            “How much longer are you going to do this? Bring in cats?” says Dustpelt.copyright protection14PENANAdeInoPCNlz

            “Thunderclan has always brought in cants,” Firestar says. “Not only that, but we have also helped cats in need.”copyright protection14PENANAc4MHph67HU

            “He’s right,” Longtail agrees. “Bluestar brought him in, Firestar brought in Cloudpaw and Sasha, and now he’s helping a friend in need. Let’s just drop it, alright? Leave this whole thing alone and make her feel welcome.”copyright protection14PENANAv2JutfzJV1

            “Well said,” Sandstorm comments.copyright protection14PENANAi9g0wEQ9rb

            He turns his sightless eyes to her.copyright protection14PENANAIEgvlGNsNu

            “Thanks, Sandstorm.”copyright protection14PENANAmjx5N0lmKh

            Firestar watches, as Longtail goes to the elder’s den.copyright protection14PENANAo3qE4XiU6K

            “They don’t want us,” Flamekit says. copyright protection14PENANA6PonkK48dR

            “We’re not welcome here,” Dawnkit puts in.copyright protection14PENANACzb9FYa1lV

            “It’s okay. They’ll soon get used to you,” I soothe my grand kits. Then I look at my leader. I can see he’s somewhere else. I have a lucky guess where. He’s probably thinking about when he first came into the clan or about his kittypet life.copyright protection14PENANAiKYJo2GHXM

            “Come. Let’s make you welcome,” I say.copyright protection14PENANAr3BQrWBv4P

            I lead them to the nursery.copyright protection14PENANAnHoyR4x16S

            Tawnypelt’s kits are welcomed by all the other kits.copyright protection14PENANAWoDV82XOJU

            I leave the nursery and almost run into Sorrelpaw and Cloudpaw.copyright protection14PENANABbYd2p9DUe

            “Watch where you’re going,” I scold them. “You’re going to trip a cat someday.”copyright protection14PENANAthVRQMWnO2

            “Sorry,” they apologize and scamper off to annoy some other cat. That’s my guess anyway.copyright protection14PENANAgLrTGAVDoE

            The next day, I’m on the hunting patrol.copyright protection14PENANAy0QwdSVnwQ

            Suddenly, I see a kittypet I know.copyright protection14PENANACZ7xRXkOk8

            “Princess!” I greet, and pad up to her.copyright protection14PENANARBUiuATqeh

            “Sasha, I heard you’re a Thunderclan cat. Could you take me to Firestar?”copyright protection14PENANA4MiViwNeTk

            “Of course. What is it?”copyright protection14PENANA4vjc3a9nYu

            “It’s my two legs. They’re moving, but I don’t want ot leave.”copyright protection14PENANAwP5q8A110f

            “Okay then,” I say.copyright protection14PENANAj51C0k8Oz1

            I lead her to him and he’s happy to see his sister.copyright protection14PENANA8DxrPACZYB

            After she decides to be in the clan, he has a ceremony for her and keeps her name.copyright protection14PENANAtvrzVz9XBa

            At the Gathering, she is able to attend, but Shadowclan doesn’t show at all.copyright protection14PENANAcVfexgzF48

            Before the leaders can say anything about their clans, Boulder and his cats fight us. According to Firestar, they’re what’s left of Bloodclan that my mate made when he was alive.copyright protection14PENANAHcMfEBPgBO

            I look for Princess. She was taught how to fight as a warrior by Firestar, but this is her very first battle, and my second or third. So therefore, I’m worried about her.copyright protection14PENANAR5jjEfTOcu

            I help her fight a few cats and then leave her to fight her own battle.copyright protection14PENANAYpqeEYudEy

            I throw Boulder off Firestar and bite his tail, making him run away hurt.copyright protection14PENANAmmL8BpJrGl

            “Thanks, Sasha.”copyright protection14PENANAfxqyR4OKT1

            “You’re welcome.”copyright protection14PENANAeSqF65DAii

            Suddenly, I feel pain surge through me. I turn and see a dark tabby.copyright protection14PENANA9FEUNfkxG0

            “Tigertail,” I growl.copyright protection14PENANASWyivpnj9g

            I feel terrified, but I try my best to fight Tigerstar’s father.copyright protection14PENANAko8L3fQHQ9

            We roll in a ball of furry.copyright protection14PENANAZZOEUCUe9B

            I get pinned down.copyright protection14PENANAf1xNj2cGml

            Just then, Brambleclaw rakes his claws down his pelt. He turns on my son, but my son pins him down.copyright protection14PENANAXHJ5sNljvb

            I get to my paws very slowly. I’m wounded. Tigertail hurt one of my fore paws. It hurts, but I got back into battle.copyright protection14PENANAtvai95U3k3

            I battle Bone, who’s the leader.copyright protection14PENANAFz4cmofz5B

            He claws my pelt and a hind leg.copyright protection14PENANAV3iF8Lsu5X

            I yowl in pain.copyright protection14PENANAFztQRCVLGg

            Apparently, I’m heard.copyright protection14PENANAOlPTyciNMo

            As he bites my shoulder and inches to my neck, I see a gray tom. Then he pins Bone down and finishes him off. It’s Crowfeather that saved me.copyright protection14PENANApHrImAtP4z

            He pads up to me and starts licking my wounds.copyright protection14PENANANJ8gzZSvLz

            “Are you okay? You know, Sasha, you shouldn’t have fought him by yourself. You could’ve been killed,” he says between licks. He then stops and asks, “Does that feel better?”copyright protection14PENANALzVBttOMhA

            “Yeah; it does. Thanks so much, Crowfeather.”copyright protection14PENANAaGhBoEcStg

            “Let’s see if you can get up, Sasha.”copyright protection14PENANArg0AxzAp5l

            “No!” yowls a familiar cat. It’s Lionblaze.  “Hollyleaf!”copyright protection14PENANAZRVUspogbF

            I try to see through all the cats of what’s wrong. Then I see. Hollyleaf is on the ground, Ashfur looming over her. I want to see if I can help.copyright protection14PENANARmm9YKNaDh

            “Help me up,” I tell Crowfeather.copyright protection14PENANAq5yrF51gv6

            He does and I lean on him for support, all the while limping from the pain in my paw.copyright protection14PENANACuXxpqXOG8

            “Hollyleaf!” I yowl, wishing I can run to her as fast as I can, but I can’t.copyright protection14PENANAuyvQHtBuDe

            Lionblaze is already there by the time we get there.copyright protection14PENANAM4jkvZqwfV

            “Ashfur, step away from her,” I growl.copyright protection14PENANADRqApQ0nEH

            He doesn’t say anything. He just snarls at me.copyright protection14PENANAw8f1ZWuAr7

            Suddenly, a silver-looking cat plows him over.copyright protection14PENANAPeb8yH8Yen

            “Leave her alone,” the she-cat growls. I realize what she’s doing and I seize my chance. I rush as much as I can, to Hollyleaf’s side.copyright protection14PENANAURfksFat2O

            “Hollyleaf,” I say.copyright protection14PENANAbyXqzXn3xP

            “Sasha. Help me.”copyright protection14PENANAbm3nvC4DBi

            “I will. Hold on.”copyright protection14PENANA1w9hQCX15Z

            I look at Lionblaze.copyright protection14PENANAQgyNH8K5ci

            “Where are Cinderpelt, Yellowfang, and Leafpool?”copyright protection14PENANAVnFZLbBPOd

            “Don’t worry. Jayfeather is hidden in the undergrowth and Yellowfang and Leafpool are fighting. Cinderpelt is still at camp.”copyright protection14PENANA7QJh8AT5BZ

            “Okay; Crowfeather, go find Yellowfang and Leafpool.”copyright protection14PENANA5rgDfXM02Z

            He looks like he doesn’t want to leave me, so I tell him, “Don’t worry. I can lean on Lionblaze if I have to. Now go. Please.”copyright protection14PENANAiXmYW79yXY

            He does as he’s told, racing away to go find them.copyright protection14PENANAM5OwmW6g2H

            I feel my strength start to ebb away and I stumble. Lionblaze then catches me by the scruff.copyright protection14PENANAg79wLotxow

            “Take it easy. Just lean on me, okay?”copyright protection14PENANAwHuTFr1O0Z

            I obey.copyright protection14PENANAMM4BirypIA

            Silverstream takes her paw away from Ashfur’s neck and steps away from the senior warrior, letting him get to his paws. She doesn’t once let her eyes leave him. She must think that he’d take a leap at her. I know thought that If he does, Graystripe would do something about it. Yeah; sure. He couldn’t kill the warrior, but he sure could attack him if he laid a claw on her. But he’d have to attack the deputy, in order for the deputy to attack Ashfur.copyright protection14PENANA6YIgutEY13

            A few minutes later, Crowfeather races back with the Medicine cats Yellowfang, Leafpool, and Jayfeather.copyright protection14PENANAvyKZspquer

            Leafpool tends to Hollyleaf, while Jayfeather tends to me. Just to be easier on him, Lionblaze helps me lay down.copyright protection14PENANAt1dxCwZbVH

            A few minutes later, we’re ourselves again.copyright protection14PENANAL2GuiaXX9Y

            Suddenly, the senior warrior attacks Graystripe’s mate, Silverstream.copyright protection14PENANA0EwKDZa4tp

            Yellowfang pulls him off her. I’m thankful that she’s okay.copyright protection14PENANAvWqJu3ftfa

            Battle is soon over.copyright protection14PENANAb1dRvv2ssb

            A few moons later, all cats are well again. Also, when Firestar hears what happened, he exiles Ashfur. So there you have it. The clan is well.copyright protection14PENANArsPYdtXoyq
