Mapleshade's Revenge Chapter SixA moon had quietly passed. Maplekit and Crowkit were growing too big for the nursery. And just some days ago Snowcloud had finally moved into the nursery, carrying Whitestep's kits.
Days were getting cloudier and colder, warning the Clans that leaf-fall was approaching. Plus Mosspaw had finally earned her warrior name; Mossfeather. With only Gorsepaw, Spottedpaw, Violetpaw and Grasspaw in the apprentices den, it would be like old times as soon as Maplekit and Crowkit would get apprenticed. Almost like old times...if Featherkit didn't die.
It was also the very moon Maplekit and Crowkit would finally become apprentices! The two kits sat outside the nursery with Dawneyes grooming them solemnly. "Keep still", she growled as Maplekit tried to struggle from her grip. "I want you to be perfect for your ceremony!"
Crowkit, already groomed, glanced at the empty Highrock longingly. "Oh, I hope Redstar calls the ceremony soon!" he meowed. "I can't wait until I'm finally going to be an apprentice!

Warriors: Shadowed Horizons - Ch. 1The colors of the leaf-fall became more and more prominent as the seasons passed, and the same blue eyes continued to watch it happened. More eyes joined his, and yet more of them were lost as the leaves fell and the cold winds took its place. The blue eyes stayed the same for a long time, always joined by a pair of amber eyes that had always rested on his. But in the late days of the cold weather, the amber eyes eventually faded, leaving the blue eyes to close as well. When even starlight started to dim, the memories of the great battle were finally starting to be forgotten
The gray tabby opened his eyes. Blinking the long sleep away, he stretched his tired limps; once again feeling the cold that made his body quiver during the late months. A great sigh escaped his lungs as he forced himself out of his nest and over to the store of leaves and berries that he hadn't bothered to sort with. Pawing unenthusiastically at the pile, he frowned and abandoned his work as he had done many
Mapleshade's Revenge Chapter TenMaplepaw opened her eyes. She was back in the Place of No Stars. Finally! She hadn't dreamed here for days! The battle was a few days away. Getting to her paws she searched cautiously for Stingtalon. It was time for her training of becoming Clan leader.
Suddenly a black streak flew at her. Maplepaw was completely unprepared for it and she was struck down by Stingtalon. The black tom had her pinned to the floor with one paw penetrated into her chest. "A good leader", he sneered, "is prepared for any attack".
How does he do that? Maplepaw flattened her ears. How was a leader meant to prepare for the most unwary attacks? She bristled and tried to push the warrior off, but he was too big...too strong. Luckily Stingtalon jumped off her and turned his back on her. "You have so much to learn, my dear".
Maplepaw scrambled to her paws. "So, when do we get started?" she said determinedly.
Suddenly Stingtalon flew at her again. This time Maplepaw had prepared for it and she dodged

All Here For A ReasonI turned onto a shady, well-manicured driveway that, for all intents and purposes, looked harmless enough. Maple trees lined both sides of the street, and a parade of Canadian geese marched across the road to a wide duck pond with a flamboyant fountain. There were blooming crepe myrtles and rose-of-sharons, and as I grew closer to my destination, neatly trimmed gardens with neatly trimmed bushes.
I stopped to let the geese pass. They looked at me; one hissed. I honked my horn and moved around them.
At the end of the road sat a collection of grayish buildings and a number of signs directing me to the appropriate parking lot. "Welcome to Ten Creeks Hospital," said one of them. "Please enjoy your stay." I parked in the visitor's lot. Surely I wouldn't be staying.
I was shaking when I got out of my car. I had spent the morning getting high. One foot in front of the other, flip-flop noises, hot sidewalk. Mulberry and magnolia trees, freshly shaved grass. A bench and pan for smokers. A set o
