This is a story for Nightshimmer's contest! I couldn't think of anything better to name it, so I named it after the main character. XD. Hope you enjoy! Cinderstar "Never be afraid of the future, for it brings wonderful things." -Brightsky 23:41, October 6, 2012 (UTC)

"I've got the tansy you asked for." Graypaw meowed, padding up to her mentor, Sagefall.
"Thanks Graypaw, you'll be a great medicine cat one you've finished your training." Sagefall meowed. Graypaw glowed with pride at his words.
"How's Duskpaw's training going?" Graypaw asked.
"Good, Why didn't you go see for yourself?" Sagefall asked,
Duskpaw was her brother. They'd never been really close, for some reason or another, and Graypaw, her paws being on the path of a medicine cat, rarely ever saw her brother anymore, and when she did, he was always hanging out with Barkpaw and Poppypaw.
Barkpaw and Poppypaw were a moon older than Duskpaw and Graypaw, and they had formed strong friendships with Duskpaw. Poppypaw was Graypaw's best friend, but there was something about Barkpaw she just didn't trust. Maybe it was because he had put a dead bee in her nest, which ended up stinging her, and because he was so secretive...
"Graypaw, are you listening?" Graypaw was jolted out of her thoughts by her mentor's voice. "I said we're going to the moonpool tonight."
"Sorry, I zoned out." Graypaw admitted, ducking her head with embaressment.
Sagefall let out a purr of amusement. "Well, we'll need to leave soon, so if you're ready to go, let's do it."
"Okay!" Graypaw meowed happily. Visiting the moonpool was her favourite part of training. As she padded out of the den, she saw her younger sister, Echokit, playing waith a ball of moss.
"Where are you going?" Echokit asked Graypaw.
"To the moonpool." Graypaw told her sister. "To speak with StarClan."
"Can I come?" Echokit's eyes widened with wonder.
"Sorry." Graypaw shook her head. "You have to be an apprentice to leave the camp."
"But that's-" Echokit paused, deep in thought. "Four whole moons away!"
"I know." Graypaw said sympatheticly. "But you know what? I'll play hunt the squirrel with you when I get back tomorrow, does that sound all right?"
"Okay!" Echokit mewed, her disapointment forgotten.
Graypaw let out a purr of amusement as she walked away, and her thoughts were filled with the young silver tabby she-cat. Echokit was born three moons after she and Duskpaw had become apprentices. Echokit had no littermates, but she was loved by the whole clan, and everyone was willing to play with her, especially Morninglight and Silvertail, their mother and father. Echokit was so cute, she coould wrap anyone around her paw, except Duskpaw and Barkpaw, Graypaw observed.
