Chapter one: the snake
Honeyfern walked across the clearing, enjoying the new leaf sun warming her fur. Berrynose was laying on sunning rocks waiting for her. Briarkit, blossomkit and bumblekit were playing together while millie and greystripe watched. Honeyfern leaped gracefully onto sunning rocks and layed next to berrynose. "We'll have kits like that someday " berrynose purred to her. Honeyfern rubbed her muzzle along his and purred. Suddenly a snake came out from a crack in the rock. Briarkit was pressed into a corner, paralyzed with fear. Without thinking honeyfern threw herself in front of the kit. The snake bit her and honeyfern's world went black.
