Ch.7: Blood Promisecopyright protection23PENANACfGaEEzhC6

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 protection23PENANAfn5NxDS2YR

            One-eye padded over to the queen.copyright protection23PENANAWRiaGvokMn

            "You should get some exercise while they sleep. I'll watch them."copyright protection23PENANANpCtzh89yL

            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 protection23PENANAfO8kBGXuJW

            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 protection23PENANAmFOEQu9eOW

            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 protection23PENANABBme5Wvd54

            "You'd think they'd act properly on their ceremony day," she mewed.copyright protection23PENANAYkS7FuODYx

            "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 protection23PENANAzlcoZ2S9hH

            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 protection23PENANA6Tjs8ooDCu

            "We'll miss you," Sweetkit announced, as their mother cleaned them up. "Yeah. We will," Sandkit agreed with her sisters.copyright protection23PENANAIBOAIu4x83

            "Let every cat old enough to catch his prey be seated here for a clan meeting!" Bluestar yowled out.copyright protection23PENANA4Hoh6okYxB

             Every cat came to sit below the rock.copyright protection23PENANAGEv06Dovh0

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 protection23PENANAZZBOAkiFSq

            They all sat by the leader and deputy. One by one she started the ceremony.copyright protection23PENANAJW87eevyd3

            "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 protection23PENANAaUHFUOjijA

            "Sandpaw! Dustpaw! Spottedpaw! Graypaw! Ravenpaw! Sweetpaw!" the clan yowled out approvingly; all except Tigerclaw.copyright protection23PENANAjiAV7agpQ8

            "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 protection23PENANAQz5ZGjecSr

            The senior warrior padded up to Sandpaw and they touched noses.copyright protection23PENANAg2mYIgM1z6

            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 protection23PENANACTpcPwn6Vd

            Goose Feather walked up to the apprentice and they touched noses.copyright protection23PENANAeMMkLtEZFw

            "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 protection23PENANArWyOUh4HiE

            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 protection23PENANANUxc6nIttE

            "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 protection23PENANAGIrt2dWGdC

            Redtail and Dustpaw touched noses.copyright protection23PENANAdEyMst3xbl

            "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 protection23PENANAcZgJbn7UQA

            Sorrel Tail padded up to Sweet Paw and they touched noses.copyright protection23PENANAzxi11keX1r

            "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 protection23PENANAze681zC46N

            Lionheart came up to Graypaw and they touched noses.copyright protection23PENANApjMG2Y39TU

            The clan went about their daily lives, as Bluestar jumped off the high rock and disappeared into her den.copyright protection23PENANAKts2utnIqo

            It was a damp night, as Sandpaw dreamt in her nest by her sisters.copyright protection23PENANA90Dg9EPLIW

            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 protection23PENANAz8flPikSsd

             "May I help you?" Sandpaw meowed, padding slowly up to the cat.copyright protection23PENANAMcGeeaIBT9

            "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 protection23PENANA03aEjjj852

            "What's the promise?"copyright protection23PENANA4Ebk00CkS4

            "You must keep your friends and kin close."copyright protection23PENANAxFgeUvpC7i

             "I promise."copyright protection23PENANAM8lWNFg6Nl

            "Good."copyright protection23PENANA8S0jc0kPlc

            "How will you help me?"copyright protection23PENANAUSSb7MGwpO

             "By mentoring you young' un."copyright protection23PENANAObWa8KPoQD

            "When do we start?"copyright protection23PENANAJYwJiJKCy5

            "Tomorrow night."copyright protection23PENANAPsYHD5ukCU

            "Great!"copyright protection23PENANA8r65BePrCG

            Then the tabby tom faded away and she awoke to dawn.copyright protection23PENANA4lFA5XjQAS

            It was a beautiful day as Sandpaw trained in the hollow with her mentor. They were working on battle moves.copyright protection23PENANAVpkT7YZCiB

            "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 protection23PENANAwr2CxEQn5t

            "How did I do?"copyright protection23PENANA3aPILVG5Lg

            "Great. You'll be a warrior by no time at all."copyright protection23PENANAXGGiAOgzqz

            "Thanks, Whitestorm!"copyright protection23PENANAbX1dzyRqWX

            "You're welcome."copyright protection23PENANAUZ7JITEoYp

            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 protection23PENANAFV6mdGaugB

             Thornclaw came to her again. They battle fought. She learned more from him in one session than a living cat.copyright protection23PENANA4ry5F8ExyA

            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 protection23PENANAvsACciwQHu

            "You're not Starclan."copyright protection23PENANAgnqmJD3U8j

            "That's what you thought?" Sparrowpelt said.copyright protection23PENANAvcL3irbWYK

            "Yeah."copyright protection23PENANAxtd76pqDf7

            "Why would you think that?" Tawnyspots asked.copyright protection23PENANA7vuxSebV9j

            "We're not shiny like they are," Thornclaw said.copyright protection23PENANAfEw0IPsUMr

            "Maybe because I’ve never seen Starclan with my own eyes before; you trained me," she said.copyright protection23PENANAFjVSr1iRFx

            "Of course," Thornclaw replied.copyright protection23PENANAYM3tjWIvRR

            "This is over. I've learned a lot. I don't need any more help."copyright protection23PENANAP6wm7fbAaX

            "Are you sure? Remember your promise, Sandpaw."copyright protection23PENANA1PhWIIY0zD

            "I won't. Don't threaten me."copyright protection23PENANAyypC2JyLfq

            His eyes grew dark, scary, and evil-like. Then she awoke to dawn.copyright protection23PENANAD4x9qEpCez
