Ch.6: Sasha’s Trilogy: The Strifecopyright protection4PENANAl5HoHyeH6S

  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 protection4PENANAdgF6rgCMbO

            I stop. I smell a cat. It’s Thunderclan thankfully.copyright protection4PENANAr3H8iOS0xm

            I go to Graystripe.copyright protection4PENANA2SrKh8jwPq

            “Hi, Graystripe.”copyright protection4PENANAo3G4a8kNUv

            “Hi, Sasha. What are you doing here?”copyright protection4PENANACmzjuS7nTF

            “I want to talk to Firestar about joining the clan.”copyright protection4PENANAJWyaGPj0l9

            “Okay; come with me.”copyright protection4PENANAqKd7Onf8b9

            With that, he leads me to the camp and then to Firestar’s den.copyright protection4PENANAENve706enZ

            “Firestar, Sasha would like to talk to you,” he addresses his old friend.copyright protection4PENANAU6VshCiACE

            “Come in, Sasha.”copyright protection4PENANAK3oXadlpmw

            I obey and the old deputy leaves.copyright protection4PENANAz1j5fr5lFt

            “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 protection4PENANAlAzg2QTlrv

            “I know. I want to join, though.”copyright protection4PENANAZbzo8JBt9Y

            “Alright, you may. Follow me.”copyright protection4PENANA0JZkOeLUAr

            We go out onto the high ledge  and he announces to the clan that I’m going to join.copyright protection4PENANAnW1Xd4O6pg

            “But she was once Tigerstar’s mate. How can we trust her?” Mousefur says.copyright protection4PENANACprbNAVp44

            “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 protection4PENANAn4OmoDBaxc

            “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 protection4PENANABV8CTlHHr6

            “Thanks, Graystripe,” Firestar thanks his longtime friend.copyright protection4PENANAY3vpfj0aI4

            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 protection4PENANAf693tyG4Ie

            One moon later, I’m patrolling with other cats, when suddenly, Tawnypelt with her kits are spotted.copyright protection4PENANAhkapW3KELc

            “Everything’s wrong,” she says to me. It’s muffled by Dawnkit’s scruff.copyright protection4PENANAKJgg9vAaGi

            “It’s okay. Just tell me what’s wrong,” I say, trying to soothe her.copyright protection4PENANAfVpoZSXGXF

            “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 protection4PENANAUeZ4DW8oAU

            “Okay; let’s get you to the camp,” I say.copyright protection4PENANABlERCNncY3

            “I don’t think so. She’s still Shadowclan,” disagreed Dustpelt.copyright protection4PENANAvdZUBZNzFK

            “But she’s Brambleclaw’s sister and my daughter, and you know you can trust me.”copyright protection4PENANAfzZeEDbN1M

            “Fine,” he says disapprovingly.copyright protection4PENANAHC8luL9RX7

            My daughter picks up Dawnkit, I pick up Flamekit, and Tigerkit follows.copyright protection4PENANAVtkUnWTavy

            “Tawnypelt!” Brambleclaw and Firestar greet.copyright protection4PENANAVK8UZMxbAz

            They come over to us and I tell them the situation.copyright protection4PENANAYhc7DGSMxP

            Firestar says to her, “You may stay as long as you’d like.”copyright protection4PENANAUtifnGbhRH

            “Thanks, Firestar.”copyright protection4PENANAPMsYHsKeEl

            “You’re welcome.”copyright protection4PENANANCC0JgGB2e

            “How much longer are you going to do this? Bring in cats?” says Dustpelt.copyright protection4PENANArXHKc5qomi

            “Thunderclan has always brought in cants,” Firestar says. “Not only that, but we have also helped cats in need.”copyright protection4PENANA6c4yaM1U0F

            “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 protection4PENANAfOhSO18vDb

            “Well said,” Sandstorm comments.copyright protection4PENANAK48sPlxgKT

            He turns his sightless eyes to her.copyright protection4PENANAyQ5Dpfpqaq

            “Thanks, Sandstorm.”copyright protection4PENANA5qenj3psz2

            Firestar watches, as Longtail goes to the elder’s den.copyright protection4PENANADj7MMX8jdS

            “They don’t want us,” Flamekit says. copyright protection4PENANAdLIjp8zOyK

            “We’re not welcome here,” Dawnkit puts in.copyright protection4PENANAeEbt2uxrX6

            “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 protection4PENANAuAqCnczwwN

            “Come. Let’s make you welcome,” I say.copyright protection4PENANAoKz74YfDNO

            I lead them to the nursery.copyright protection4PENANAo2szwv43X1

            Tawnypelt’s kits are welcomed by all the other kits.copyright protection4PENANAasCA5ZNFvk

            I leave the nursery and almost run into Sorrelpaw and Cloudpaw.copyright protection4PENANAsU41180hMN

            “Watch where you’re going,” I scold them. “You’re going to trip a cat someday.”copyright protection4PENANA5aQyKm4Op1

            “Sorry,” they apologize and scamper off to annoy some other cat. That’s my guess anyway.copyright protection4PENANAPzusazsYeY

            The next day, I’m on the hunting patrol.copyright protection4PENANAjGSoIUxIbj

            Suddenly, I see a kittypet I know.copyright protection4PENANAwhunQeJU38

            “Princess!” I greet, and pad up to her.copyright protection4PENANAWTIqlTZNSe

            “Sasha, I heard you’re a Thunderclan cat. Could you take me to Firestar?”copyright protection4PENANALbUEADy7mK

            “Of course. What is it?”copyright protection4PENANArT2VgSaZNd

            “It’s my two legs. They’re moving, but I don’t want ot leave.”copyright protection4PENANA8K7QbsKbgC

            “Okay then,” I say.copyright protection4PENANAp1OkGoXewj

            I lead her to him and he’s happy to see his sister.copyright protection4PENANAZXd1TtU4sI

            After she decides to be in the clan, he has a ceremony for her and keeps her name.copyright protection4PENANAiAsprDRcP7

            At the Gathering, she is able to attend, but Shadowclan doesn’t show at all.copyright protection4PENANAOe9DyP2w4y

            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 protection4PENANAQ3v35pwZtY

            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 protection4PENANAILzaa0O2dE

            I help her fight a few cats and then leave her to fight her own battle.copyright protection4PENANA91SjFq9HXd

            I throw Boulder off Firestar and bite his tail, making him run away hurt.copyright protection4PENANAfNhLQmammD

            “Thanks, Sasha.”copyright protection4PENANAl4pUfzV4B8

            “You’re welcome.”copyright protection4PENANAILaA5P1exY

            Suddenly, I feel pain surge through me. I turn and see a dark tabby.copyright protection4PENANArNLIyC5JYr

            “Tigertail,” I growl.copyright protection4PENANAnkvMeKmaOX

            I feel terrified, but I try my best to fight Tigerstar’s father.copyright protection4PENANAjwJt7Oj82R

            We roll in a ball of furry.copyright protection4PENANA7uETddvjXu

            I get pinned down.copyright protection4PENANAKkOg730tdP

            Just then, Brambleclaw rakes his claws down his pelt. He turns on my son, but my son pins him down.copyright protection4PENANArwma0uZjD2

            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 protection4PENANAaKxPEK293Z

            I battle Bone, who’s the leader.copyright protection4PENANAEOks4rv5VJ

            He claws my pelt and a hind leg.copyright protection4PENANAUnfhxgLxzo

            I yowl in pain.copyright protection4PENANAzK96zNRCXV

            Apparently, I’m heard.copyright protection4PENANACBJW4OoATk

            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 protection4PENANAjNHz5fPQMp

            He pads up to me and starts licking my wounds.copyright protection4PENANAfm9osJckm9

            “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 protection4PENANAfYLZVPNkpG

            “Yeah; it does. Thanks so much, Crowfeather.”copyright protection4PENANAEJulizB8qn

            “Let’s see if you can get up, Sasha.”copyright protection4PENANAxFJH4crgxN

            “No!” yowls a familiar cat. It’s Lionblaze.  “Hollyleaf!”copyright protection4PENANApNMbMI0A2q

            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 protection4PENANAhG9M2smDAM

            “Help me up,” I tell Crowfeather.copyright protection4PENANA17sLPxXgNv

            He does and I lean on him for support, all the while limping from the pain in my paw.copyright protection4PENANA4diRo5zpGB

            “Hollyleaf!” I yowl, wishing I can run to her as fast as I can, but I can’t.copyright protection4PENANAPXiYJlq5Y1

            Lionblaze is already there by the time we get there.copyright protection4PENANAS08lLYSJeF

            “Ashfur, step away from her,” I growl.copyright protection4PENANAejTxaiDKHj

            He doesn’t say anything. He just snarls at me.copyright protection4PENANAmwhEv00W6Z

            Suddenly, a silver-looking cat plows him over.copyright protection4PENANAXZZ6kK4cuj

            “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 protection4PENANASIDMgN4TyL

            “Hollyleaf,” I say.copyright protection4PENANAcUitzNuzKB

            “Sasha. Help me.”copyright protection4PENANAyHAxNUiS7M

            “I will. Hold on.”copyright protection4PENANAb0vOMLCQFa

            I look at Lionblaze.copyright protection4PENANACR4UlDIQds

            “Where are Cinderpelt, Yellowfang, and Leafpool?”copyright protection4PENANAsL92iXXBP5

            “Don’t worry. Jayfeather is hidden in the undergrowth and Yellowfang and Leafpool are fighting. Cinderpelt is still at camp.”copyright protection4PENANAn15TPREsHj

            “Okay; Crowfeather, go find Yellowfang and Leafpool.”copyright protection4PENANACkbHfxlXoy

            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 protection4PENANAqQjASCxQdn

            He does as he’s told, racing away to go find them.copyright protection4PENANAVBo0udR9Fz

            I feel my strength start to ebb away and I stumble. Lionblaze then catches me by the scruff.copyright protection4PENANAtiTEZ8cl6A

            “Take it easy. Just lean on me, okay?”copyright protection4PENANATwqd6jQE93

            I obey.copyright protection4PENANA15Fq5aDXjj

            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 protection4PENANAxMCqrCzEXG

            A few minutes later, Crowfeather races back with the Medicine cats Yellowfang, Leafpool, and Jayfeather.copyright protection4PENANAeQcF4jZUY9

            Leafpool tends to Hollyleaf, while Jayfeather tends to me. Just to be easier on him, Lionblaze helps me lay down.copyright protection4PENANAY0eDqkO4h7

            A few minutes later, we’re ourselves again.copyright protection4PENANAnOUZfmBP1z

            Suddenly, the senior warrior attacks Graystripe’s mate, Silverstream.copyright protection4PENANAvfqIVu2Up0

            Yellowfang pulls him off her. I’m thankful that she’s okay.copyright protection4PENANA3n0i1qCPuU

            Battle is soon over.copyright protection4PENANAXSJSSYeuOg

            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 protection4PENANA3jvt1rY4ln
