Prologue

The Thunderclan camp was not silent. The coughs of a warrior, a kit and two elders echoed on the stone cliffs enclosing the camp. Inside the medicine cat den, where the coughs were coming from, a frail looking blue-gray she cat was speaking to a frantic looking dark grey queen. " I've told you already Quailhop. Only StarClan knows if Lilackit will die, or if she will live" said the she cat calmly. The dark gray queen tightened her tail around the coughing kit laying beside her and then replied. " I know that, Blueblaze but what if the whitecough spreads to Tigerkit and Goldentuft, or-" Quailhop was cut off by Blueblaze. " Quailhop, if the quarantine succeeds, i wont have to treat any other cats".

Quailhop sighed and gave up. Feeling satisfied, Blueblaze turned to one of the other cats, a golden she-cat with black spots on her pelt, who was groaning in between her coughs. Blueblaze gently pried the cat's mouth open and placed some catmint on her tongue, before closing the she-cats mouth and massaging her throat and mouse to get her to swallow. She felt the she-cats pelt and frowned when she found it to be quite hot,then turned around and grabbed some moss, dipping it in the small stream at the back of the cave. She then pulled it out and gently dabbed it onto the she-cat's pelt to cool her down. She then turned to the dark gray queen again and spoke.

"Quailhop, could you watch over Leopardshine and the others while im gone? i need to go speak to Lynxstar" When Quailhop nodded, Blueblaze left the den.

She could see the silhouette of a cat sitting by the thorn tunnel that lead out of the camp. She walked up to her and sat down. The golden she-cat tuned to face her.

" So Blueblaze, has anyone gotten better or died?' inquired the she-cat. Blueblaze shook her head. " Not much has changed Lynxstar, except Leopardshine is burning up from the whitecough" she said solemly. "So one of our youngest warriors is getting worse?" Blueblaze nodded. " How can one of our youngest warriors be terribly sick in new-leaf with an illness that normally comes around in leafbare and leaf-fall? Unless Starclan is punishing us, there is no way this could happen" Lynxstar said.

Blueblaze took in a deep breath. "Lynxstar, we have done nothing to deserve any punishment, and whitecough and greencough can, although very rarely come around in new-leaf". Silence. Then Lynxstar spoke again. " You are right Blueblaze. This is probably just a big coincidence." Lynxstar stood up. "Now im returning to my den. "The gathering is in a day and i would like to get some sleep". Lynxstar walked away, leaving Blueblaze all alone in the moonlight.


Chapter 1

Lynxstar yawned and lifted her head off her nest, woken up by the faint sound of coughs drifting into her den from the medicine cat den. She stood up and walked outside.

In the camp clearing, Lynxstar could see Shadowedpaw showing Alderkit and Amberkit a hunting crouch, while Rosefoot, the one elder who hadn't caught whitecough watched them while talking to Birdstone about something.

"Good morning Lynxstar" came a voice. Whirling around, Lynxstar saw her deputy, Eaglebranch approaching her "i wonder if he has sent out patrols yet" she wondered as he cleared his voice to speak. "Incase you're wondering Lynxstar, i've already sent out patrols" Eaglebranch said. " That answers my question" she nodded as Eaglebranch spoke again " Have you thought about who to take to the gathering? I was thinking we shouldn't bring Rosefoot, for- well, obvious reasons, and Frostgleam, since she is so close to kitting." Good idea Lynxstar thought, agreeing with the tom. She paused to think for a moment before nodding. "That sounds like a good idea. As for cats, i was thinking of bringing along Pebblefall,Tulippaw, Cliffclaw, Featherflight and Chippedear." She replied

Her deputy nodded. "Allright, that sounds good. Im going to go visit Goldentuft and Tigerkit, ill see you later." And with that, Eaglebranch was running over to the nursery, where she could faintly see Goldentuft's golden pelt.

Lynxstar glanced at the fresh-kill pile. There's plenty of prey there.. but im not hungry. I'll go see if Blueblaze or one of her patients wants any prey. Turning around, Lynxstar walked over towards the medicine cat den.

Entering, Lynxstar could smell the scent of sickness strongly, and she paused at the doorway to wait for Blueblaze. She didn't have to wait long though, as the elderly medicine cat was there in a flash looking at her in worry, but before she could speak, Lynxstar interrupted her.


"Im just here to see if anyone wanted anything to eat" she explained, keeping a calm voice. A raspy voice came from the corner of the den, where Branchtail was laying. "I'd like something to eat.. i haven't eaten much for fear of puking it all up" he said, coughing again at the end if his sentence.

Lynxstar nodded, backing up out of the den and heading over to the fresh-kill pile.She noted that the pile was still as large as it had been when she had gone to the medicine den. Leaning down she picked up a small squirrel. This should be enough for Branchtail she thought as she walked back to the medicine cat den.

Blueblaze was at the enterance, and she took the squirrel from Lynxstar. "Thank you. This should be enough for him, and if he has any leftovers then he can share them with Redeye and Leopardshine- if she wakes up or i can get her to swallow the food." With that, Blueblaze turned and walked back into the medicine cat den.

Walking over towards the camp clearing, where she could see many cats gathering, Lynxstar thought about what Blueblaze had said about Leopardshine.

If she wakes up?.. Has Leopardshine gotten even worse?

Chapter 2: Pre-Gathering

As the sun slowly approached the horizon, Lynxstar lept up onto the Highledge and called out " May all cats old enough to catch their own prey gather here beneath the Hghledge for a clan meeting!"

The cats of ThunderClan slowly gathered under the ledge, muttering to themselves, while the apprentices jumped around, excited and hopeful.

Lynxstar noted that Cliffclaw was not here, as Frostgleam had started kitting- so someone else would be going to the gathering in his place, while Blueblaze could not come for the same reason.

Probably Curlytail and Shadowedpaw, they have been doing good with their training recently..

Once all the cats had come to the Highledge, Lynxstar started to speak. "As you all know, the gathering is tonight. As such, these will be the cats who attend it". She took in a deep breath and then spoke again " Pebblefall, Tulippaw, Featherflight, Chippedear, Curlytail and Shadowedpaw. You will all meet me at the camp entrance." "Clan dismissed"

Lynxstar lept off the Highledge and walked towards the thorn tunnel. The cats chosen to go to the gathering were all there, and Shadowedpaw and Tulippaw both looked very excited, while their mentors looked amused. Eaglebranch was also there.

She ran out the thorn tunnel and she could hear the sounds of her clanmates running after her. Soon they arrived at the log bridge, witch she noted was slick from rain. Carefully, she lept up onto the logs and crossed it slowly, digging her claws into the little bark that remained. Once she had crossed, she waited momentrily for her clanmates to cross it before running to the tree where she could see Specklestar,Sharpstar and Smokestar already sitting.
