characters: Branchpaw(WindClan, handsome brown tom with green eyes), Shiningpaw(StarClan, she-cat with sparkling silver pelt and blue eyes)
I am Branchpaw from WindClan. I am great hunter, according to my mentor, Hawkclaw.
but, I am alone... my whole family died. and other apprentices bully me.
one night, I went to my den feeling depressed, as usual. I have my own seperate den 'cause there's a lot of dens in WindClan.
and that night... a she-cat with sparkling silver fur came to me.
hi. I am Shiningpaw. I died when I reached the age of 10 moons. StarClan is an exciting place. you never know what is gonna happen. and you can go on adventures every day!!
one day, I looked down on WindClan territory, and I saw a handsome tom;and he looked lonely. so I came down at night to cheer him up.
and he was pretty surprised.
"w-who are you?" I asked.
"Shiningpaw. I am from StarClan," she said.
"what's your name?"
"I am Branchpaw."
"Branchpaw. nice name," Shiningpaw said.
"well, thanks!" I said. "well, since I was apprenticed, others bullied me and teased me. so I am kinda alone."
"oh, that is sad... anyways, I am here to cheer you up," Shiningpaw said.
"really? that is so great! thanks!" Branchpaw said.
I wanted to play with him all night, but I heard that tomorrow is his battle session. so I played with him only until midnight.
"I gotta go. good luck with your battle session," I said.
"thanks. bye." Branchpaw said.
"I'll come back next night. and you know what? I like you," I said. and touched nose with his.
my heart stopped for a second when Shiningpaw said she likes me.
and she disappeared, leaving me in my den.
I almost yowled with happiness.
next morning, I went out to battle session. I was fighting against Stripepaw, the dark tom with almost invisible stripes.
and we started.
I bited his tail as soon as he stood on top of me. I kicked his belly and pinned him on the ground.
"stop!" Hawkclaw yowled again.
and we stoped, panting.
it was night again. it was time to visit Branchpaw.
I came down to Branchpaw's den.
"hello, Branchpaw," I said.
"Shiningpaw!" he exclaimed.
"did you had a good day?" I asked.
"yes, and Berrystar said she will make me as a warrior tomorrow sunhigh!!" he screamed with excitement.
"nice," I said.
"thanks! hey, where do you wanna go today?" he asked.
"should we visit... the old forest?" I said.
"sure!" he said, smiling.
I blinked. and we were in the old forest, nothing had been destroyed yet.
"wow. it's just you and me! and the pond! it-it shines like you!" he said.
"thanks," I smiled.
"wow," before I knew, I was entwining my tail with hers.
"I wish we could be like this forever," I said.
"you think?" she asked.
"well, I do think StarClan is sparkly," I joked, grooming her fur as it got messy by wind.
"it's moonhigh. I gotta go... again. see you tomorrow. bye," she licked my ear, and disappeared.
I was back in StarClan, feeling great. I am getting used to helping Branchpaw with his feeling. and I think I might love him.
should I say yes for being his mate or not? I wondered.
I really want to say yes, I thought. if he says he want to.
"Branchwhisker! Branchwhisker!" my name echoed through the crowd.
"hey, Branchwhisker! welcome to warriors'world," Hawkclaw said, cheerfully.
"thanks, Hawkclaw," I replied.
that night, Shiningpaw visited me again.
"hey, Branchpaw!" I said.
"Shiningpaw! my name is Branchwhisker now," he replied, with cheerful voice.
"congratulations!" I said.
"I wish I could earn my warrior name...," I said.
"how about... Shiningpool?" Branchwhisker said.
"good idea," I said.
"and... Branchwhisker? I-I love you," Shiningpaw said.
I was not surprised to hear that. well, since we met, I was in love with her, either.
"me too, my dear Shiningpaw," I replied lovingly.
"...so... do you want to be my mate?" she said shyly.
I did not answered. instead, I pushed my nose into her silver fur, while Shiningpaw groomed my fur.
it was already Moonhigh.
"so... I gotta go...," Shiningpaw said.
"I can go with you," I surprised as I heard Branchwhisker.
"are you sure?" I asked.
"yeah, in WindClan, nobody love me... or like me. I'd rather go with you," he said.
"but... than... you'll be dead," I said.
"nah, I really don't care," he replied with loving voice.
"than let's go." I licked his nose, and we walked through the stars, heading for the StarClan.
