A New Dawn
A New Dawn
We decide to settle in the hollow of a pine tree. Cinder curls up in the back of the large hollow, hidden by the shadows.
I sit by the entrance, thinking of my family. My parents, and my brother Tiller. I hope the Council has told them of my task, so they don't have to worry.
Well, they'll still worry, but at least not as much.
"Ep?" Comes Cinder's voice from the shadows.
"Yeah?" I hoot.
"Do you believe in 'ancestors'? All the dead animals living in the sky?" By her tone, I can tell she doesn't believe it for a second.
"Well... not exactly. I mean, I guess. I believe we all go somewhere, but I don't really have any certain beliefs. Why?"
"My leader recieved a sign from a bunch of starry spirits telling her I was to represent the cats." After that, she tells me her story.
It started with rumors of wolves crossing the border. After a while, Fawn, the cats' leader, sent a little group to check it out. Razor had gone, and his mate Seedrefused to let him go without her. On the journey, she kitted. They had to stay in a makeshift camp for four and a half moons, until they finally gave up and went back to their real camp. Not a single wolf had crossed the border, or even come close. They returned, happily greeted their fellows, only for Cinder to be whisked away again.
After hearing that, I look at her in a new light. "I'm so sorry." I whisper.
She waves her tail. "It's nothing." She says, brushing off my apology. "I'm not dying or anything."
"Sso, youu ready?" I ask.
"Yeah. I'm ready for anything."
I only wish I could say the same.
