The Way of Life chp.9
NightPaw sat in the clearing her wounds from the patrol fight compeltely healed. The only proof that it happened was a new scar on HawkTalon's eye. She remembered when she woke up. MoonPaw and WinterPaw and been pressed close to her and stirred when they felt her woke up. After that it was a blur that NightPaw hardly remembered. She sat beside StripedPaw and ProudPaw. After the fight with the patrol HawkTalon had been hugely impressed that she had pulled through the wound she had. In only a couple of days. TearStar started to speak.
"ProudPaw. YOu have made you're interests clear and by the powers invested in me by starclan i proclaim you the madicene cat apperentice." ProudPaw meowed her thanks and went to stand beside HeartNote her parents purring proudly.
NightPaw sat beside StripedPaw proudly. StripedPaw had gone on the patrol and had fought well. She even sported a new scar on her shoulder.
"StripedPaw" The dark striped apperentice held her head high as TearStar called out her nam

NightPaw hissed and yowled as a large tabby loomed over her smaller form. The forest shook with furious yowls and defensive hisses. NightPaw had gone with the dawn patrol and they found WindClan hunting on they're grounds. NightPaw and her mentor had lept right into battle after SpiritWind had given the signal to attack. She now faced off with a large tabby she-cat. The she-cat hissed and raced forward. NightPaw lept up and raked her claws down the she-cats side as she came down. Before the tabby could react she whirled around and left three long gashes on her cheek. The tabby yowled in pain and hissed before clawing NightPaw's side. NightPaw's face didn't betray any pain. But that cut stung like fury. She hissed and raced forward sliding under the she-cat and rakeing her back claws on her tender belly. Before shoving up knocking the she-cat off her balance. NightPaw darted out from under her belly and kicked her flank. Makeing the she-cat fall over. As soon as the tabby warrior got up

(We is still followin NightPaw)
NightPaw walked back into the camp with a large grey squirrel in her mouth. The warrior looked very suprised and HawkTalon held his head high in pride. She took the squirrel to the elders and they smiled and purred they're thanks. She trotted over to the apperentice's den and sat down in her nest. Not being very hungry. She looked around a noticed two other apperentice's in the den. "Hi" one mewed. And the other purred a "Hello. You must be NightPaw" She nodded. Walking over and sitting down next to them. "My name is StripedPaw. That tom over there is WinterPaw" The she-cat pointed to a silver tom with dark highlights and white markings. The first thought NightPaw had was 'poor hunter' before she saw the toms muscles ripple as he moved to get a better look at her. She repressed a hiss. As he looked her over and forced her fur to lie flat. He looked at her ice blue eyes "You will make a good warrior. It's an honor to fight by you" The tom bowed. NIghtPaw

NightKit sat rather calmly in her seat before TearStar. As her brother and sister danced in they're seats brimming with excitment. She scowled.
'WinterFall is gone and they act like nothing has happened. SpiritWind has moved on. Am I the only one here with feelings?' she thought as her attention set on TearStar.
Her sister was proclaimed MoonPaw and given SparrowClaw as a mentor. NightKit snorted. A light hearted yet quick warrior. She was known as a wonderfull huntress. But when it came to battles she merely gave the offending cat light scratches before scareing it away or moving on. She would suit MoonPaw.
Next was TimeKit his little golden pelt was puffed out in pride. NightKit narrowed her eyes as SharpLight was called out and the broad warrior approached proudly. NightKit let out a huff. SharpLight was known as the the second strongest warrior in the clan and had only lost one fight. The only other cat she would approve of being her mentor was....
"NightKit!" TearStar meowed. Nigh

NightKit regained full consiousness just as her father walked into the nursery. SpiritWind suddenly looked old and hollow. But when he saw his beloved kits begining to wake up he became bright and loped over to them nuzzleing each one purring. The kits mewled annoyed by being woke up. But NightKit was glad to see her father. She mewled with glee and hopped onto his head smileing and nuzzleing him. SpiritWind purred and pulled NightKit off his head before hugging her close.
"Oh my darling kit. You were so brave." He meowed. NightKit smiled and put her paws on his nose "I just thought like you. It kept me and the others alive... But not WinterFall..." She mewed the last part quietly. SpiritWind flattened his ears sad. Before pricking hem again and nuzzleing her.
"You did wonderfull. YOu're littermates are alive. And will become brave warriors" NightKit smiled. And played with her father and her litter-mates (who woke up after a few minutes) for a while until TearStar came in. Her wounds

(Okies my peeps we r gonna shift the POV around a bit. Ok the scene is when the trio are kits and the POV is third person but we r mainly going with NightKit's reactions and intrests ok? OK! here's we go!!!)
NightKit stood in front of her brother and sister and mother her hackles raised and her ears back. WinterFall hissed as the small war waged in front of the nursery she stepped in front of her proud little kit as NightKit flicked her purple-ish colored tail in annoyance. "WinterFall. Get behind me! You can't fight with how sick you are" The kit said pushing her weakend mother behind her. WinterFall finally submitted as the Thunderclan deputy stepped in. WinterFall's eyes widened as NightKit hissed and leaped forward her little claws outstretched. She got a good hit on the deputys cheek before he slammed her down. She wriggled free and darted over to her siblings. WinterFall yowled and charged her weak body forward thorwing her white and silver form into the deputys chest. Nigh

"And I give you you're apperentice names." TearStar meowed as MoonKit TimeKit and NightKit wriggled excitedly in they're seats they're chests puffed out trying to look big. As SpiritWind's eyes shone with pride. In the sun-high light.
TearStar continued. "MoonKit. From now. Until you earn you're warrior name. You shall be known as MoonPaw. I give you SparrowClaw as a mentor" Her gaze flicked over to the tabby she-cat now walking up to the young apperentice. "SparrowClaw. You have mastered the art of stalking and I know you will pass you're skill to to MoonPaw" the she-cat nodded and touched her nose to MoonPaw's
TearStar's gaze flicked back to the other two. "TimeKit. From now until you have earned you're warrior name you will be known as TimePaw." the young tom's chest puffed up with pride "I give you SharpLight as a mentor." the broad tom walked forward his head held high as he approached the brighter of the three apperentices. "SharpLight you have been a noble and brave warrior. I p

TearStar. Yawned walking out of her den and heading to the mediciene cats den. She smiled as she caught the sound of healthy kits mewling in annoyance. She walked in to see SpiritWind curled up with his kits and HeartNote smiling her chest puffed out with pride. TearStar stepped in and sat down as NightKit stumbled over her fathers paw and bumped into her leg. Her big blue eyes looked up at the leader "You must be TearStar! SpiritWind has spoke much of you" She purred in admireance eyes beaming brightly. TearStar smiled and nodded as MoonKit and TimeKit stumbled next to they're sister. She looked up at HeartNote and SpiritWind. SpiritWind, her most trusted warrior and deputy smiled kindly and stepped forward shooing the kits away from her legs. She looked at HeartNote. the she-cat beamed with pride. "SpiritWind's kits are the smartest I've ever seen. The deputy tried to choke them to death. And they just waited until they were about to pass out to play dead. they're so brave. five moon
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
