Foxpaw yowled in horror as he saw the writhing mass of fighting cats. The cats, the cats with studded collars, were winning! Not them!! ?They were hopelessly outnumbered. Snarling, he leapt toward a muscular black cat with ginger streaks scoring his pelt. Before he could grab him, another cat bowled into him, a ginger and white she-cat, her claws unsheathed. Everything went black as the cat scratched his stomach.
Foxpaw sprang up, panting. He expected to see in a large battlefield, blood and fur littered everywhere, but he was surprised to be inside the tree stump. If he was safe, why was the reek of blood still in the air? Why did his stomach sting with the wounds of a cat's claw? His mind aching because of his thoughts, he padded outside, sat down, and sighed.
A rustle of leaves told Foxpaw another cat had came to join him. Firepaw walked out beside him. "Are you okay, Foxpaw?"
Foxpaw nodded. "I just had a bad dream, that's all." He licked his stomach to hide his embarrasment and to soothe the stinging in his stomach.
Firepaw gave Foxpaw a quick lick on the ear. "It's okay. Dreams are dreams, unless they are had by a medicine cat."
Foxpaw tensed. That WASN'T just a dream. It seemed as vivid as if he was in the actual battle. Without realizing he was doing, he poured his whole dream out to her.
"I can still smell the tang of blood in the air," he mewed desperately. "I think it might be a sign from StarClan."
Firepaw frowned. "We haven't had any signs that this could happen," she mewed. Foxpaw felt a chill go down hus spine as Firepaw looked at him with her intense, blue-green gaze. "Are you sure you think it might be real?"
Foxpaw sighed. "It's okay if you don't believe me," he sighed, "but yes. I think it was an omen.''
Firepaw gave him one last lick on the ear before standing up. "Do you want to go hunting?"
"The fresh-kill pile's already full."
"No. I mean, just hunting for the two of us."
Foxpaw sensed she wanted some alone time with him, so he nodded. "Sure."
Foxpaw felt his body instintively go into a hunting crouch at the sight of a mouse. He sprang, and the mouse's screech of terror was cut off with a bite to the neck. He dropped down beside Firepaw. "Share?"
Firepaw nodded at him, her eyes shining happily, before the two ate. When they were done, Firepaw sat up. "I'm going hunting some more. You can stay here."
Foxpaw nodded and sat down. He watched the last of Firepaw's white-tipped tail vanish into the trees. She was so, so precious to him. He didn't know what he would do if he lost her.
Firepaw came back with a fish in her jaws. Even though it was average for an OceanClan cat to catch a fish, her eyes were shining with excitement. She dropped her fish and mewed, "There's something really shiny back there! I think it's some sort of Twoleg thing."
Foxpaw leaped up. "Really? Let's go check it out!"
The two cats padded toward the Twoleg thing. It was a blazing silver, catching the light of the sun. "It's so beautiful."
But Firepaw was staring at something else. "Look at that fallen branch. The beam of the sun is shining on it."
Foxpaw shrugged. "What's the big deal?" But as he said those words, he smelled something. Something burning.
At the same moment, Firepaw screeched with terror. "Move the branch, NOW!" she yowled.
Foxpaw dove toward the branch with Firepaw, ready do grasp it in his jaws, but it was too late. He watched in horror, as the branch broke into smoldering flames.

    Four stars

    Everything is good except for a lot of grammar issues like capitalizing names and appostraphies to show someone or something owning something else.

    Three stars

    It was ok. I didn't like how you almost never said anything about any warriors. Almost all of them were kits and apprentices. Once you write the story, you should also go back and work on any miss spelling. You may also want to work on how they talk. On some places, they where talking with having any " in the begining and/or the end. Read a redwall or warriors book and nodiss how its writen. That may help. You could also try writing it on your computer. Because it should say if a words miss spelled or just done wrong. Please do make the second chapter. Hope i helped!
