Ch.7: Blood Promisecopyright protection17PENANAD0WlimRCap

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 protection17PENANAwwOauCxCvC

            One-eye padded over to the queen.copyright protection17PENANA9g381dGCOI

            "You should get some exercise while they sleep. I'll watch them."copyright protection17PENANAHsJDN10EEb

            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 protection17PENANA4aHSkbvSO1

            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 protection17PENANAvXhz6iMNUB

            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 protection17PENANAwC3ffRggwV

            "You'd think they'd act properly on their ceremony day," she mewed.copyright protection17PENANArA59tqlYja

            "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 protection17PENANAZP7hoezb2u

            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 protection17PENANAMy6QNmH4Cd

            "We'll miss you," Sweetkit announced, as their mother cleaned them up. "Yeah. We will," Sandkit agreed with her sisters.copyright protection17PENANAZ4O5ehvzgP

            "Let every cat old enough to catch his prey be seated here for a clan meeting!" Bluestar yowled out.copyright protection17PENANAJgERx267d8

             Every cat came to sit below the rock.copyright protection17PENANAB0GIQu4yyH

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 protection17PENANAMxMAC0S8A8

            They all sat by the leader and deputy. One by one she started the ceremony.copyright protection17PENANAXkpBcWEj3S

            "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 protection17PENANArFS8nJCsha

            "Sandpaw! Dustpaw! Spottedpaw! Graypaw! Ravenpaw! Sweetpaw!" the clan yowled out approvingly; all except Tigerclaw.copyright protection17PENANAa3IWEkXwsx

            "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 protection17PENANAFqS4241Gn4

            The senior warrior padded up to Sandpaw and they touched noses.copyright protection17PENANAzPKrX7bAAs

            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 protection17PENANALKwtHaNEGg

            Goose Feather walked up to the apprentice and they touched noses.copyright protection17PENANAclG4qI9rpx

            "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 protection17PENANAwYmgqkoBUY

            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 protection17PENANA4FIA8pKW4r

            "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 protection17PENANAdgNTldCuF2

            Redtail and Dustpaw touched noses.copyright protection17PENANA1b1ossIQ4D

            "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 protection17PENANAO8jxJsXuo1

            Sorrel Tail padded up to Sweet Paw and they touched noses.copyright protection17PENANAVBhJvDX87C

            "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 protection17PENANAa9ObxgDg6H

            Lionheart came up to Graypaw and they touched noses.copyright protection17PENANATVQcszEp43

            The clan went about their daily lives, as Bluestar jumped off the high rock and disappeared into her den.copyright protection17PENANArZFJIbmFju

            It was a damp night, as Sandpaw dreamt in her nest by her sisters.copyright protection17PENANAiuD6Gbnkst

            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 protection17PENANA2mpSySsdiw

             "May I help you?" Sandpaw meowed, padding slowly up to the cat.copyright protection17PENANAhJwXsf8OVs

            "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 protection17PENANAidWWkD7HXA

            "What's the promise?"copyright protection17PENANAbZWASvskIK

            "You must keep your friends and kin close."copyright protection17PENANAQ0unXWC6Lx

             "I promise."copyright protection17PENANAz3LwZ597M6

            "Good."copyright protection17PENANAHY6DyY81iR

            "How will you help me?"copyright protection17PENANAM9SgwQd9XY

             "By mentoring you young' un."copyright protection17PENANAGw2r22xb9j

            "When do we start?"copyright protection17PENANAiRipvQoESH

            "Tomorrow night."copyright protection17PENANAwFQoVnf8wc

            "Great!"copyright protection17PENANA7dI9FKbcWl

            Then the tabby tom faded away and she awoke to dawn.copyright protection17PENANAwfcOFIF3mx

            It was a beautiful day as Sandpaw trained in the hollow with her mentor. They were working on battle moves.copyright protection17PENANAKTcBi8Yxhv

            "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 protection17PENANAJoJrxocJA9

            "How did I do?"copyright protection17PENANA46pgU4ZA8m

            "Great. You'll be a warrior by no time at all."copyright protection17PENANA7Sfktxts4L

            "Thanks, Whitestorm!"copyright protection17PENANAYN9HfH5sqF

            "You're welcome."copyright protection17PENANACuM1LH6Khe

            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 protection17PENANA6p6lJATd2X

             Thornclaw came to her again. They battle fought. She learned more from him in one session than a living cat.copyright protection17PENANAY0L8H1PNug

            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 protection17PENANAs6Lf7wWehd

            "You're not Starclan."copyright protection17PENANAsnCzJm9CAc

            "That's what you thought?" Sparrowpelt said.copyright protection17PENANAAydmGVnwIS

            "Yeah."copyright protection17PENANAMbYxq64mkl

            "Why would you think that?" Tawnyspots asked.copyright protection17PENANAANJcntzw69

            "We're not shiny like they are," Thornclaw said.copyright protection17PENANAJGHW3oSrVA

            "Maybe because I’ve never seen Starclan with my own eyes before; you trained me," she said.copyright protection17PENANAjHLhfcokzJ

            "Of course," Thornclaw replied.copyright protection17PENANAF9wpmTSVqY

            "This is over. I've learned a lot. I don't need any more help."copyright protection17PENANA4aFM6IbY96

            "Are you sure? Remember your promise, Sandpaw."copyright protection17PENANAzsOlK4y8o7

            "I won't. Don't threaten me."copyright protection17PENANAS4gotCimyJ

            His eyes grew dark, scary, and evil-like. Then she awoke to dawn.copyright protection17PENANAlDT0qZJBYS
