~Okay so I'm gonna try as hard as i can, but it might be a bit crappy. Here goes nothin.
~Also, Drago (Blazefang) is just temporary deputy until someone takes the spot. If by November 30 no one else has asked to be deputy, then Drago (Blazefang) will become the permanent deputy and (in the story) Stormclan will have to except that their previous deputy is gone (kinda like with Graystripe but the deputy doesnt come back this time).
~I got permission from Drago to use Blazefang and Drago made Blazefang's looks. And Jayfang made Duskstar's looks.
shivered in the bitter leaf-bare cold. It nipped at his ears and tail tip, so cold he thought he would get frostbite. "Crowflame
!" called Blazefang
, who was his temporary deputy until his official one came back. "Would you please lead a border patrol over by the Echoclan border?"
"Sure thing Blazefang." she replied. "Who shall I take with me?"
"Take two other cats with you; it doesn't matter who."
She nodded and called to Frostpaw
, her apprentice, and Littletooth
, a black and white tabby tom. Jaystar winced when he saw the long scar running across Littletooth's flank. The recent conflict between Stormclan and Mapleclan had led to a battle that hadn't ended well. The battle had taken Silverfrost
, and Fallenpaw
, sent Shiningheart
to the elder's den because of a wound that refused to heal, and taken one of Redstar's lives. Was it all worth it?
Jaystar wondered. All the death and bloodshed, and over what? Prey? Territory? Loyalty?
He sighed and shook his head. All this wondering was getting him nowhere. He padded up beside Blazefang, sitting down beside him.
"Prey has refused to show itself." mewed Blazefang. "I hope that this harsh leaf-bare ends soon."
Jaystar nodded in agreement. "The conflict with Mapleclan hasn't helped. We lost so much, and for what? Prey? Territory? Loyalty?" Jaystar sighed wearily, wondering what would happen next. "At least Fireclan had been sympathetic towards us," he murmured. "Before Echoclan and Mapleclan refused to help when the Twolegs took over their territory. They had said, 'There was always only three trees at the Three Trees, so it must mean that there are supposed to be three clans.' Slatestar
was always on our side. I wish none of that nonsense had happened."
"Feeling a bit nostolgic, eh?" meowed Blazefang, amusement glittering in his amber eyes. "Well, we couldn't take them all in." He glanced over at a white-and-gray tabby she-cat suckling two tiny kits. "But Mistyflame
has been settling in well."
"Yes, I suppose." muttered Jaystar. "I wonder how Slatestar is doing. He must miss his mate and kits." As he was padding towards Mistyflame's den, Starlingkit
tumbled out, quickly followed by her brother, Treekit
. Jaystar quickly side-stepped to avoid being tripped by the two wrestling kits and watched, twitching his whiskers in amusement. "They will be great fighters," he mewed to Mistyflame. "You're lucky to have such great kits."
"If only Slatestar could see them," Mistyflame rasped. "He would have loved them."
"I'm sure he loves them anyways." Jaystar dipped his head and padded towards the entrance.
"Where are you going?" asked Snaketail
, who was guarding the entrance.
"Just for a little walk." Jaystar replied.
"Okay, then," meowed Snaketail. "Watch out for Mapleclan."
"I will." Jaystar called and padded off.
padded along the Stormclan border, marking it as she went along. She tasted the air for any sign that they may have crossed, but found none.
"Have any Stormclan cats invaded?" asked Clawpaw
. "I'll shred them!"
"No, you won't," Stardust retorted. "No Stormclan cats have invaded."
"Oh," meowed Clawpaw, looking disapointed. "Okay then."
"Stardust!" called Clawpaw's mentor, Sunstripe
. "Come over here and look at this. Clawpaw too." he added.
"What is it?" mewed Stardust. "Stormclan?"
"No," he replied. "Not Stormclan, Mapleclan."
"Mapleclan? I thought they were our allies." murmured Clawpaw.
"Obviously not." retorted Sunstripe. They peaked around the bush and saw a rabbit, freshly killed, and drenched in Mapleclan stench.
"Never trust a clan other than the one you belong to." growled Stardust.
"How dare they cross the border!" snarled Clawpaw.
"And try to steal prey." Sunstripe agreed. "They must of heard us coming and ran off."
"This needs to be reported to Duskstar
, immediately!" Stardust meowed, heading back towards camp. "We will not except any trespassing whatsoever!"
As they headed back towards their camp, Jaystar backed out of the bush he was crouching in, and arched his back in a long stretch. "Ah," he sighed. "That was interesting to watch." He padded over to where he had left his rabbit covered in Mapleclan stench. He let a little mrrow of laughter and picked up his rabbit, dragging it back to camp. "I can't believe they didn't see this rabbit." Jaystar murmured around the rabbit. "They only saw the one right outside the bush. They're as blind as a mole." He let out another little snort of laughter and padded off towards camp in silence.~Okay so my plan didn't seem to work so in case it didn't, here is the link to the links for all the pictures of the characters in the scenes:Link to Links
