Chapter 1
I padded into the clearing, my eyes shining. My clan was bustling all around me. I padded over to the fresh-kill pile and dropped the stag I had been dragging. I saw Dawnpelt trying to control her kits, Firekit, Tigerkit, Moonkit, and Bluekit. As I padded over to her, she called out to me, “Ashstar! It’s great to see you she said, lifting Firekit by the scruff and pulling her away from Brightberry’s herbs. “They are getting very big,” I commented, “The ceremony is at sunhigh,” I said, seeing her sparkling eyes. “GREAT! I’ll get them ready.” Brightberry said, gathering her kits. After I finished talking to Brightberry I Went to my den and climbed the rocks beside it to the top of High-Rock. “May all cats old enough to catch their own prey! Gather under the High-Rock!” I yowled.
My clan was gathering underneath me and my deputy, Oakear, was sitting down on a ledge just beneath me. “Today we gather here for four kits apprenticing. Firekit, step forward.” I said, leaping down from High-Rock and approaching Firekit. “Firekit, you have reached six moons and it is time for you to be apprenticed. From this day on, until you receive your warrior name, you will be known as Firepaw. Your mentor will be Snowfire.” I said, licking the top of Firepaw’s head. “Snowfire, you are ready to take on an apprentice. You have received excellent training from Pinefur.” I said, nodding towards Pinefur. “ You have shown yourself to be brave and strong. You will be the mentor of Firepaw. I expect you to pas on all you know to Firepaw.” I said as Snowfire said, “I do,” Walking towards Firepaw. I also named Tigerkit, Moonkit and Bluekit.
