Ch.7: Blood Promisecopyright protection5PENANAUwgoptXlC1

It was a beautiful day. Sandkit and her siblings were resting with their proud mother Goldenflower. They were about three moons old; still small. No matter what their size, they were frisky when awake. Goldenflower was always happy and relieved when they slept. It meant she had a break from them.copyright protection5PENANAiEb2KvHjsB

            One-eye padded over to the queen.copyright protection5PENANAREeSD0lAiw

            "You should get some exercise while they sleep. I'll watch them."copyright protection5PENANAld3BBt5zOI

            The queen nodded to her and then padded out into the bright, morning sun as One-eye curled up in Goldenflower's nest by the kits to keep them warm, tail around them. It was a wonder they didn't get over exhausted like their mother. What with their energeticness and friskiness.copyright protection5PENANAA6mM97hQqK

            Sandkit, Spottedkit, and Sweetkit ran around the clearing playing moss ball. It was the day of their ceremony. Bluestar was going to give them their apprentice names. Three moons had passed already. It seemed to all the elders and queens that they had just been born yesterday.copyright protection5PENANArhoGa2HwCZ

            Goldenflower sat at the entrance to the nursery watching them. She shook her head disapprovingly. Redtail, the kit's dad and Goldenflower's mate, sat beside her.copyright protection5PENANA2Xc6zOzEno

            "You'd think they'd act properly on their ceremony day," she mewed.copyright protection5PENANAnYuJLEQ2vh

            "They'll learn. Right now, though, they're young. But now that they'll become apprentices, they'll soon learn what work and hardship is."copyright protection5PENANAMWzbDJdkfP

            Bluestar jumped onto the High rock and Retail went to join her. He was the deputy. Goldenflower watched as her kits came bounding towards her.copyright protection5PENANAkiNxpmmY1K

            "We'll miss you," Sweetkit announced, as their mother cleaned them up. "Yeah. We will," Sandkit agreed with her sisters.copyright protection5PENANAnoIR8tvZw1

            "Let every cat old enough to catch his prey be seated here for a clan meeting!" Bluestar yowled out.copyright protection5PENANAhjYQvBzJWP

             Every cat came to sit below the rock.copyright protection5PENANAzh8mOxJawL

Bluestar spoke. "Today is time for some kits to get their apprentice names; Sandkit, Sweetkit, Spottedkit, Ravenkit, Graykit, and Dustkit. Please come forward to receive your new names."copyright protection5PENANAUTaDKj7gjE

            They all sat by the leader and deputy. One by one she started the ceremony.copyright protection5PENANAhAXgqtRZcO

            "By naming apprentices we show that Thunderclan will survive and remain strong. From this moment on, until they receive their warrior name, these apprentices will be known as Sandpaw, Dustpaw, Spottedpaw, Graypaw, Ravenpaw, and Sweetpaw."copyright protection5PENANAPL5X8TuR40

            "Sandpaw! Dustpaw! Spottedpaw! Graypaw! Ravenpaw! Sweetpaw!" the clan yowled out approvingly; all except Tigerclaw.copyright protection5PENANADZTNDE7KVq

            "Sandpaw, your mentor will be Whitestorm. Whitestorm, you have shown yourself to be a warrior of wisdom and integrity. I'm sure you will pass on all you know to this apprentice," Bluestar started again.copyright protection5PENANApd0ntqQlq2

            The senior warrior padded up to Sandpaw and they touched noses.copyright protection5PENANA9fOecW8GOd

            The leader moved on to the old Medicine cat. "Spottedpaw, your mentor will be Goosefeather. Goosefeather, you have shown yourself to be a Medicine cat of wisdom and knowledge. Do well to pass all that you have learned down to this apprentice."copyright protection5PENANAHrdBfQfmBb

            Goose Feather walked up to the apprentice and they touched noses.copyright protection5PENANAM0oMnRcedC

            "Tigerclaw will be your mentor, Ravenpaw. Tigerclaw, you have shown yourself to be a warrior of herculean and loyalty. I'm sure you will pass on all you know to this apprentice."copyright protection5PENANAgmS5B41KLP

            Tigerclaw and Ravenpaw touched noses. He was glad about one think. His aunt, Bluestar, had given him his very first apprentice. It was an honor to have one.copyright protection5PENANAXsga3v1jSC

            "Dustpaw, your mentor is Redtail. Redtail, you have shown yourself to be a deputy of loyalty, wisdom, and strength. I'm sure you will pass on all you know to this apprentice."copyright protection5PENANAuEDSr0KEeX

            Redtail and Dustpaw touched noses.copyright protection5PENANAgvk8AWdCGY

            "Sweetpaw, your mentor is Sorreltail. Sorreltail, you have shown yourself to be a warrior of compassion, loyalty, and strength. I'm sure you will pass on all you know to this apprentice."copyright protection5PENANArErIOueQO6

            Sorrel Tail padded up to Sweet Paw and they touched noses.copyright protection5PENANAsiL5bc6WRl

            "Graypaw, your mentor is Lionheart. Lionheart, you have shown yourself to be a warrior of loyalty and bravery. I'm sure you will pass on all you know to this apprentice."copyright protection5PENANAT7Regsau5R

            Lionheart came up to Graypaw and they touched noses.copyright protection5PENANAswvTfkouac

            The clan went about their daily lives, as Bluestar jumped off the high rock and disappeared into her den.copyright protection5PENANABDvmJGzQCq

            It was a damp night, as Sandpaw dreamt in her nest by her sisters.copyright protection5PENANAbwy3KPwVjB

            She was in a forest hunting when there appeared a Dark forest cat, but she didn't know that. She only knew that this cat smelled of her own clan; Thunderclan.copyright protection5PENANANM8iGnC5RN

             "May I help you?" Sandpaw meowed, padding slowly up to the cat.copyright protection5PENANAhtqMP9tpZ5

            "I'm sorry. Let me introduce myself, young one. I once was Thunderclan; Tigerclaw's father; Thornclaw. I have a compromise to suggest to you. Actually, more like a promise. Starclan wants to help you. We know what you can achieve. But remember. With great power comes great responsibilities."copyright protection5PENANAQbBpfmeLiy

            "What's the promise?"copyright protection5PENANAm5luo1S16J

            "You must keep your friends and kin close."copyright protection5PENANAOocfb2pEsp

             "I promise."copyright protection5PENANAKiAmIQIWB1

            "Good."copyright protection5PENANAvX7QsvSkwY

            "How will you help me?"copyright protection5PENANA4knhzykYdM

             "By mentoring you young' un."copyright protection5PENANAnX5YjNO2Kq

            "When do we start?"copyright protection5PENANA3fna6QGYac

            "Tomorrow night."copyright protection5PENANAXexkw7TQ67

            "Great!"copyright protection5PENANACu4Hsovhqf

            Then the tabby tom faded away and she awoke to dawn.copyright protection5PENANAHuv5FBWlz6

            It was a beautiful day as Sandpaw trained in the hollow with her mentor. They were working on battle moves.copyright protection5PENANAyxl5SRcLIj

            "Try to unbalance me. Use your body weight, size, and speed. Get me off my paws," Whitestorm instructed. And so, that she did. She succeeded. She then let him up.copyright protection5PENANATkNX2glyxM

            "How did I do?"copyright protection5PENANANfgilWThht

            "Great. You'll be a warrior by no time at all."copyright protection5PENANAoP0JVTB8Fj

            "Thanks, Whitestorm!"copyright protection5PENANAryEevHvRf2

            "You're welcome."copyright protection5PENANAD2iUlDQeV8

            It was sundown when they got back to camp. It had been a long day. When they came back, they all curled up into their moss nests.copyright protection5PENANAIjYJ2UCE2h

             Thornclaw came to her again. They battle fought. She learned more from him in one session than a living cat.copyright protection5PENANAXuPBJliedy

            Tawnyspots and Sparrowpelt arrived from the forest. That's when she knew the truth. She wasn't in Starclan territory being taught by Starclan. She was learning from a Dark Forest cat, instead. She backed away for a few minutes, stopping a foot away.copyright protection5PENANAhQAzLVdCa8

            "You're not Starclan."copyright protection5PENANAKTrJCuDe8G

            "That's what you thought?" Sparrowpelt said.copyright protection5PENANAw6amHUH08U

            "Yeah."copyright protection5PENANAzpL9Zx5cag

            "Why would you think that?" Tawnyspots asked.copyright protection5PENANAkV9MELgi0p

            "We're not shiny like they are," Thornclaw said.copyright protection5PENANAYxv9Td3Bdb

            "Maybe because I’ve never seen Starclan with my own eyes before; you trained me," she said.copyright protection5PENANAwNBiWAP2MZ

            "Of course," Thornclaw replied.copyright protection5PENANAi7UsTzeaRf

            "This is over. I've learned a lot. I don't need any more help."copyright protection5PENANAzQM4ZGh2iv

            "Are you sure? Remember your promise, Sandpaw."copyright protection5PENANAdOiP7fpWhb

            "I won't. Don't threaten me."copyright protection5PENANAWAiR2crgmi

            His eyes grew dark, scary, and evil-like. Then she awoke to dawn.copyright protection5PENANAwV9iZ8Zgah
