The warrior code says that a kit must be 6 moons old to be apprenticed... Clawstar a ancient leader of NightClan never listen to the code.. He made Daisykit, Fennelkit, and...Flamekit apprentices at 2 moons old.
"Let all cats gather beneth Nightrock for a Clan meeting!!"
Eaglefur saw three young kits scrammble out of the nursery, Flamekit and his sisters Fennelkit and Daisykit. They all ran up Nightrock with their mother, Cloudpatch in the nursery with tears running down her face. Eaglefur knew why she was upset, The three kits were only two moons old. They were barly talking at that age, And still drinking large amounts of milk each couple hours. He knew that the three kits possibly wouldn't make it into warriorhood when their 4 moons old.
"Flamekit!! Daisykit!! Fennelkit!! Step forward!!" Clawstar's voice was as cold as ice.
Bushtail the medicine cat who is only six moons old, shook her head and walked back inside the her den where her kits Moonkit, Tigerkit, and Jumpkit where squeaking of hunger. Clawstar made her be mates with Redthorn who had recently joined StarClan for more kits.
Flamekit scurried up the ragged slope with Daistykit and Fennelkit closly following behind. Eaglefur watched as Flamekit and his sisters stood straight in front of Clawstar, Daisykit let out a squeak of hunger.
"I Clawstar of NightClan grant the apprentice names of Flamekit, Daisykit, and Fennelkit. Fishsplash you will mentor Daistykit I grant you will teach her the ways of battle, Dawndream you will mentor Fennelkit I grant...
Dawndream snarled"I have nursing kits!! I can't mentor a..."
Clawstar growled"The word of the leader IS the warrior code!! Now I GRANT you will teach her the arts of bloodshed and battle"
The only code Clawstar ever followed was the word if the leader is the warrior code, That's why he thinks he can do what ever he wants.
"Now, Flamekti your mentor will be Eaglefur, I grant he teach you the ways of my word and battle"
~Battle battle battle!!~ Eaglefur thought thouching noses with Flamepaw.
"Now please teach them now!!" Clawstar snarled walking in his den.
Dawndream heared the cyring of Silverkit, and Roughkit and she shot into the nursery, then came out carrying her two kits and muffled to Eaglefur"I can't let my kits be here anymore...Were all joining BreezeClan.. Please find someone else to mentor Fennelpaw"
A gasp came out of Eaglefur's throut"R-really?! W-w-why would BreezeClan let you stay there!?"
Dawndream lowered her head"M-y mate is Featherblaze from BreezeClan..."
Roughkit and Silverkit were squealing and trying to break free from their mother's grasp, Dawndream stared into Eaglefur's big amber eyes"Could you help me take them please"
Eaglefur was very confused but nodded, he picked up Roughkit then Flamepaw started mewing.
"Where's my mama? I want milk!! I can't eat a mousey" He squeaked.
Eaglefur pointed his tail to the pale ginger she-cat with white patches Cloudpatch.
"Okays!! When you and your friend gets back I wanna hunt!!" Flamepaw mewed running to his mother. Fennelpaw and Daisypaw were already there wanting some milk.
Eaglefur's pelt blisted in the hard wind as him and Dawndream made their way to BreezeClan territory, A patrol of five cats ran up to them.
"Hey watcha doing in BreezeClan territory!? I otta.."
"Badgerpaw!! Shut it Flea-brain!!" A warrior named Burnplet growled stuffing his tail in the apprentice's mouth.
Dawndream gently set down Silverkit so she could talk clearly, "Hello Burnpelt, Antwhisker, Dirtcloud, Badgerpaw...Oh!!! Hello Cavestar"
Cavestar's face was clam, He gently licked Silverkit's fluffy head"Featherblaze was very happy when he heard you were going to join"
~Why was Cavestar being to friendly?~ Eaglefur thought setting down Roughkit.
Roughkit squeaked and crawled ontop of Silverkit, Dawndream licked her two kits and gazed up at Cavestar. The pale tabby's fur glowing in the sunlight, "I bet he is father"
~Father!?~ Eaglefur's thoughts burst like fire and he stared at the gray tabby and a gasp came out. But he didn't say a word.
"Come on already Cavestar!!" Antwhisker grunted, "Those kits need milk"
Dawndream nodded and faced Eaglefur"Thank you so much my dear friend.. I will miss you" She gave his ear a lick"The next gathering I'll see you"
Cavestar flicked his tail and picked up Roughkit, he padded away with his warriors following. Dawndream picked up Silverkit and disaperred among the trees.
Eaglefur walked into camp, Everything buzzed in his head like a bee. Flamepaw scammered over to him"Momma said we had to make milk fast!! Ia didn'ts know why"
Eaglefur bent down and gave the apprentice's head a lick and flicked his tail. "How about some hunting?"
Flamepaw lowered his head"Daisyki...er I mean paw went to do fighting skills already..She's with Bushtail now!!"
Eaglefur's eyes grew wide~No..!!~ "I-Is she alright?"
"She's okay!!" He answered.
Relief filled inside him as he looked at Cloudpatch licking the tiny head of Daisypaw.
"Let's do fighting!!" The young kit yelped.
"No. Hunting is much safer" Eaglefur let out a tiny growl.
"Oh alright!! Don't get ya tail in a bunchs!!"
"Where's Fennelpaw?" Eaglefur asked looking around camp.
"I dunno I think she gots a new mentor teacher thing, I thinkz it's Cloverpad"
Eaglefur nodded he trusted Cloverpad more then any cat in the Clan, he walked out of camp with the tiny tabby scurring after him.
Flamepaw had already caught a tiny vole on his first try, A leaf fell ontop of him and he grunted"Dumb oversized leafy!!"
Eaglefur let out a mrrow of laughter as he scruffed the orange leaf off of his head, He sniffed the air. "Smell that?"
"Smells likes bird!!" Flamepaw smiled.
"Shhh~" Eaglefur warned"Don't let it hear you now..." He got into a hunters crouch and saw the tiny tabby coping him, He flexed his legs and leaped up into the air. Flamepaw growled and leaped up as well. A dove was flapping it's wings when BAM! Flamepaw smashed it to the ground.
"I caught it!!" He mewed proudly.
Eaglefur was impressed, for a kit however"Very good now eat"
"But..Elders and kits must be fed first"
"You ARE a kit" Eaglefur remided"But you probuly can't eat it, When we get back to camp give it to Fernshine"
Flamepaw nodded and bit into the dove's wing and carried it back to camp, Eaglefur was very proud but still quilty.
"Thank you Flamekit"
Flamepaw stared at the elder known as Fernshine and grunted"My name is Flamepaw!! I'm going to be the bestest warrior evers!!"
"When your only 4 moons"
He was very confused but walked away playing with his tail. Fennelpaw leaped ontop of him and they scuffled on the ground. Daisypaw soon came in aswell.
"What is this!?"
A voice made Flamepaw jump, he stared at Clawstar who was standing over them.
"Apprentices don't play like kits!!"
"They are kits" Fernshine called over.
Clawstar growled and turned his head back to the kits. "Stop now and go practice fighting!!"
"Y-yes.." Daisykit mewed walking away to Fishsplash.
Fennelkit scurried away to Cloverpad who shot a glare at Clawstar and they walked away.
Eaglefur unsheathed his claws, He hated Clawstar more then any cat that every exsited. He just wanted to rip his flesh off for what he is doing. But he couldn't because that would be getting him, and many other cats killed.
Two moons later had past since Flamepaw, Daisypaw, and Fennelpaw had been apprentices. Clawstar was going to make them warriors today and a chill went though Eaglefur. He didn't think the three kits would make it this far. Bushtail wouldn't even let her kits out of the medicine cat's den, He knew that Clawstar would maybe kill her and the kits soon.
Clawstar was asleep on Nightrock, the moon glisteding on camp as Flamepaw, Fennelpaw, and Daisypaw were all bundle up in the apprentices den asleep. Two apprentices Yellowpaw and Pepperpaw got hit by a monster and died three sunrises ago. Flamepaw and his sisters were very upset about them. And their mother Thorncloud died after her kits were dead, she had died of hunger after not eating anything for three days.
Cloudpatch was alone in the nursery asleep, Eaglefur knew that she was maybe dreaming about her three kits dying.
Eaglefur had enough, He bounded out of camp into BreezeClan territory and ran straight up to a patrol with Burnpelt, Badgerpaw who is now Badgerspark, and a warrior he didn't regonize with a lion-colored pelt.
"What is a NightClan cat doing here?!" The golden tom growled.
"Lioneye it's okay, He's a friend" Burnpelt mewed and turned his face to Eaglefur"What is it that you want?"
Eaglefur scuffled his paws not knowing what to saw, his ear twitched"I-I... I want BreezeClan to kill Clawstar!!"
Badgerspark's eyes grew wide"Why!? He's your leader for StarClan's sake!!"
"Because of him tons of kits died!! Because of him many warriors died!! Because of him...NightClan is dying..I-I need your help.."
Burnpelt put his tail on Eaglefur's shoulder"We'll help you first let's take you to Cavestar"
The four cats trotted down the hill to get to BreezeClan territory, Eaglefur saw a large space full of cats. He knew that was their camp, Burnpelt slowly jumped off a edge of a rock and enter the camp as the four others followed. Eaglefur saw many unknown faces expect the fur of Dawndream. He ran over to her smiling"Dawndream!!"
Dawndream gasped"Ea-eaglefur? What are you doing here?"
"To put a end to Clawstar's evilness" He meowed.
Silverkit darted out of the nursery"Who's he?"
Roughkit scrammbled out to"Yeah he smells of a dead fox!!" The tiny brown tom meowed wrinckling his nose.
"I'm Eaglefur" He smiled.
Featherblaze padded over"Hello Eaglefur welcome to BreezeClan" He greeted.
Cavestar scidded down on what looked like a highrock, he padded over"What is it that you want Eaglefur?"
Eaglefur explaned everything, Cavestar gasped at moments. After he was finshed Cavestar jumped up the rock they call Breezerock"Cats of BreezeClan!!! NightClan is in serious danger!! We will attack at night-fall but remeber... Don't hurt any cat but..Clawstar."
The moon shimmered in the air, Cavestar lead his warrior Badgerspark, Featherblaze, Gorsewhisker, Antwhisker, Burnpelt and Lioneye. Eaglefur was at the head of the group sneaking into the bushes and peering over at NightClan camp. Clawstar was about to call the meeting for Flamepaw, Daisypaw, and Fennelpaw. "Now!!" Eaglefur whispered loadly to Cavestar.
Clawstar growled in the sight of Cavestar as he lunged at him and knocking him down Nightrock. Antwhisker and Lioneye surrouned Clawstar making sure he wouldn't escape. Other warriors were confused until Eaglefur told them about everything, Flamepaw gasped and hind behind his mother following Daisypaw and Fennelpaw.
"Your a murderer!!" Growled Cavestar.
"Mouse-brain" Clawstar snickered knocking the large tom off. "I can do whatever I want!! It's in the code!!"
Cavestar snarled"Not in my code it is!!" He flipped Clawstar over and the two tussled in the ground. Clawstar escaped the grasp of Cavestar and ran to Eaglefur and pinned him down."You did this!! Didn't you!!"
Eaglefur panted"I would do anything to make sure you arn't leader anymore,I would die to make sure you were dead!!"
"I can arrange that!!" Clawstar growled about to rank his claws across Eaglefur's chest.
"Leave him alone!!"
Clawstar spun around to see Flamepaw biting his leg, Blood bursted out"Get off of me!!" Clawstar unsheathed his claws and ranked across Flamepaw's back, He screeched as Clawstar bit his chest.
"NO STOP IT NOW!!"
Eaglefur stuck his claws into Clawstar's neck, blood poored out leaving scarlet droppings on the ground. Clawstar took a few breaths then fell down dead.
"Flame...FLAMEPAW!!" Eaglefur gasped running to the tiny apprentice.
Cloudpatch burst out of the nursery running out to her son, tears rolled down her cheek"No!! StarClan don't take him!!"
Cavestar and the BreezeClan warriors ran over, Cavestar dipped his head as his warriors did as well. Fennelpaw and Daisypaw started crying over their brother.
Eaglefur stood over Flamepaw, he heard his tiny faint voice. "Yes..?"
"Wa..was I good enough..?"
"You were the best apprentice any cat could have" Eaglefur replied tears rolling down his cheek.
"G-G-Good... I'm glad I-I made you proud..M-mom..?"
"Yes my wonderful kit.." Cloudpatch mewed.
"W..were you pround of me..?" The tiny kit's voice was growing quieter.
"I'm the proudest mother ever"
Eaglefur stared at Flamepaw who was breathing more slower.
"W-will StarClan..StarClan make me a warrior now..?"
"I'm sure they will" Eaglefur meowed.
"Wi-will they let me choose my name?"
"I-I want my name..Name to be Flamefur after you Eaglefur.."
Eaglefur tipped his head"Thank you"
"W-w-why do I feel so..funny?.. I-I see white cats coming to me.."
Cloudpatch burst into tears"NO MY LITTLE KIT!! STARCLAN HE'S TO YOUNG!!"
Eaglefur put his tail over her and then looked at Flamepaw's green eyes closing.
Flamepaw's breathing stopped, He laid motionless on the ground.
"He was a brave kit, StarClan and every Clan will honner him forever" Cavestar meowed.
Cloudpatch cried on Eaglefur's flack, He licked the she-cat's head and stared at the sky, A new star was there a big bright one. In the memory of Flamepaw.. He would lead NightClan and Daisypaw and Fennelpaw to be kits again.. He would lead NightClan rightly as Eaglestar.
