Silver glanced up at the sky, feeling the wind chill her through the fur. Huddling down more into her makeshift bed, she sighed. 'Mother promised she would always care for me....why did she leave?' , thoughts were running through her mind. The winter was harsh and it had taken her two siblings Miko and Nyru, and her mother. She alone survived, it made her feel lonely. Her stomach growled from hunger, her last meal had been a shared bowl of food from a cat that lived with upwalkers. Though he lived many day walks away. She had been traveling, trying to find somewhere her dreams led her.
Sleep began to envelop her.....
Silver ran, fleeing from an unknown enemy. One that had chased her many times, she never could see his fur as it was always faded into darkness. Its hot breath on her heals and a light that shone on her path leading her to safety. A boom sounded in the distance, causing her dream to fade.
---End of Dream---
Startled, Silver woke to the storm that had finally caught up with her. She feared the storm more than ever now that she didn't have her mother's warm body to keep her safe. Now she had no one...
A twig snapped, making her swivel her head towards it. The rain began to downpour as the wind picked up.The rain began to downpour as the wind picked up. A whimper escaped her as she knew she if something was to find her, she would have no way to defend herself. As much as she tried, sleep would not come now that the air was cool and the rain came down relentlessly. The thunder continued to boom as the lightning lit up the night.
Her eyes caught a flash of red. A mother fox and her kit stood in front of her, there seemed no threat in the mother's eyes. Silver scooted over allowing them entry into the den with her, in which they took gratefully. Silver's mind was racing with what could go wrong if the fox was to change its mind. A sneeze interrupted her thoughts, the cold had gotten to her making her shiver. The small kit barked and moved hesitantly towards her.
The mother fox only watched as its kit settled next to Silver. The warmth that came from the fox was welcoming to Silver. She couldn't help but purr, for once since her family died, she wasn't alone. Sleep began to come easily to her.
Silver blinked her eyes open, a bright forest met her as she looked around. There was no dark forest with a cat that persistantly chased her dreams. This was one of her favorite dreams when she got to see Minnowleap, a she-cat who began guiding her to a new life. From what she learned of Minnowleap she was part of this Clan in a forest with other cats, her role was healing them as a medicine cat. Though her path now belongs to Starclan. Minnowleap has told stories of her times in a Clan called Riverclan, which is the Clan she must find.
Shaking her head, trying to clear her mind of her memories, she stood up glancing around the clearing looking for any sign of Minnowleap. Her dream started to become fuzzy, "No! Not yet! Where are you Minnowleap?!" Silver yowled.
A cold nose touched her gently, bringing Silver out of her dream. The mother fox stared into her eyes, tilting her head. For once, Silver felt safe, she did not feel any threat from the fox, even if it was her enemy. The fox barked at her, trying to tell her something. Though she could not understand what the mark said, she knew its meaning when she watched the fox tilt its head again to the side, revealing a dead squirrel. It had brought her something to eat. Purring Silver moved over to the squirrel to take a bite, but held back seeing that she had an audience. The fox kit was watching her, she flicked her tail at him, "Come have some with me." Even though the kit did not hear what she said, he didnt needed any other kind of invitation to know that he was offered food and dug in with her.
Stalking through the trees, the silver she-cat moved fast and unnoticed. Spotting her objective, Crevan, the fox kit she had been growing up with for three moons now, her job was to sneak up on Crevan without him knowing. Her tail twitched as a leaf fell down onto her back, giving herself away to Crevan.
Crevan looked up with a smirk on his face, "Caught you! I win again!" his voice high pitched. "Felina gave herself away again!" He barked playfully.
Felina smiled, "A leaf landing on my pelt!" Felina purred, not long ago had she begun her new life with a mother fox and her kit. Before then she was known as Silver, but the fox called her Felina because it meant cat-like. It matched her well, because she no longer was just a simple cat, she could speak the language of the fox and she has lived her life with them. Once she started understanding words, she heard one that was repeated, which was her name.
Crevan glanced around the clearing, nervous, his mother always was within earshot of them when out of their den, yet she did not come when the game was over. "Mother?" no reply met his words. Fear began to make its way into them, something was wrong.
Felina scented the air, a strong scent smothered her senses. It smelled like cats, yet she couldnt think how it could be. Her head swiveled to Crevan, "We need to get out of here. Now!" she yowled seeing his hesitation. Crevan bolted ahead of her, as she went to follow she caught sight of a group of cats. Fear sent swiftness to her paws, allowing to catch up to Crevan.
"Whats happening?! Wheres mother?!" Crevan barked, as he stumbled over a branch.
"Cats...theres a group of cats after us..." she mewed sadly, Crevan did not need to know anymore, he had already guessed what had happened, their mother was either dead or chased off. Unable to find them, they were on their own now. Felina glanced over her shoulder, the cats were large and fast approaching. Crevan had slowed his pace trying to keep by Felina's side. Sadness crept into her heart, "Crevan..." she mewed, doding around a tree.
"Just keep running! We can make it...I promise!" he yelled, she could see it in his eyes that he wanted to believe it, but she was too slow to allow them to run fast enough.
"No..." her paws stopped suddenly, "Crevan run! Run for us! Let us meet again soon! Promise me!"
He glanced back helplessly, "I promise! I will find you!" his last words to her echoed through the woods as he disappeared behind the bushes.
"Goodbye...." she mewed
Startled meows came from behind her, as the group of cats crashed into her. She felt bruised, being stuck under all the cats, it was beginning to be hard to breath.
"Silvershine! Get off my tail!" growled a cat from above her, light began to filter through as the cas started to part.
"I wouldn't of been on your tail if Kelpfur wasn't on top of me!" yowled a Silver she-cat.
The cat on top of her slowly got up, his green eyes looking at her, "Your not a fox...." wrinkling his nose, "But you sure smell like one!"
"Frostpaw!" growled the orange tom that had yelled at Silvershine, "Of course she isn't a fox." his amber eyes looked her over, "Scrawny isn't she?"
Silvershine shoved the orange tom, "When are you going to curb that sharp tongue of yours Foxfur? She is only a kit." tenderness showed in her eyes. "My name is Silvershine, are you lost?"
Felina shook her head, she was afraid of what these cats would think of her, if they knew she had lived months with a fox and her kit. "I live alone." she barked, the roughness in her voice, unused to talking like a cat.
Kelpfur bristled, "She talks funny..." his eyes bore into her, "She could be a danger to the Clan."
Silvershine bristled at his words, "We will not leave a helpless kit here. She is coming back to camp with us."
Kelpfur rolled his eyes, "You know Willowstar doesn't like loners. He isn't going to be happy having to feed this scrap of fur when prey is scarce."
Felina began shivering, fear making its way into her fur, warmth engulfed her as Frostpaw leaned against her, "I promise to protect you." his smile calmed the raging fear that had been building. "Let us all go back to camp."
