A Ghost of a Chance
Just one good deed was all it'd take for a certain rather lazy ghost to finally get into heaven and join his fianc?e. And since the nice folks at the China View Inn figured a fake ghost would be good for business, well, maybe he'd give 'em the real thing?.
And while he was at it, there were a couple of folks at the inn who were just about perfect for each other. And if a good old-fashioned things-that-go-bump-in-the-night ...
A Ghost of a Chance
Just one good deed was all it'd take for a certain rather lazy ghost to finally get into heaven and join his fiancée. And since the nice folks at the China View Inn figured a fake ghost would be good for business, well, maybe he'd give 'em the real thing .
And while he was at it, there were a couple of folks at the inn who were just about perfect for each other. And if a good old-fashioned things-that-go-bump-in-the-night haunting was what it'd take to get Cassie Whitney and Dan Travis together, why, he'd be more than happy to oblige .

Hollyleaf turned her back on Russetfur and Leopardfur. "It's not fair!" She hissed to Whitestorm. "Jayfeather is not aloud to come, and they say it proves that he's guilty!" Whitestorm smoothed Hollyleaf's ruffled pelt with his tail. "They're just trying to provoke us." "But why?" Didn't they care about the truce? Anger boiled in her belly. Hollyleaf caught sight of a ginger and white pelt on the far side of the clearing. Lifting herself on her haunches, she peered over the other cats. Fallen Leaves! "Can I squeeze past please?" Graypool was nosing her way through a cluster of ShadowClan cats. Hollyleaf shuffled to make room for the RiverClan elder. "You can sit here, if you want." She beckoned with a flick of her muzzle. "Thank you." Graypool sat beside her. Hollyleaf closed her mouth to block out the stink of fish rising from the old cat's pelt. "No problem," she muttered between clenched teeth. Silence swept the Clan as Shadowstar lifted her muzzle and yowled, " Let the gathering begin." She gazed over the Clans from the wide, low branch of the Great Oak. "Thank you, Thunderstar." She dipped her head to the ThunderClan leader. Thunderstar narrowed his eyes. Shadowstar went on, "You have followed the wishes of the Clans and kept Jayfeather confined to camp until we discover the truth about Flametail's death." Flametail's eyes flashed from beside Runningnose, and he nodded importantly to show that he agreed. Hollyleaf flexed her claws. Adderfang rose on his haunches and called, "We must reveal the truth to the Clan cats!" Runningnose stepped foreward. "Only Jayfeather knows the truth. We are waiting for him to reach us." He glanced at Flametail. Brambleberry stood up. "None of us are comfortable with this situation." Hollyleaf tried to scan ShadowClan. Were they uncomfortable? "Don't stare!" Whitestorm's hiss made her jump. "We don't want to challenge ShadowClan!" Flinching, Hollyleaf dragged her gaze back toward the leaders. Windstar had stepped foreward, her tail curving over her back. "WindClan has had good hunting over the past moon. We are ready for the coming season." Riverstar nodded. "We too. The lake has been filled with fish and there are no illnesses in Riverclan." Thunderstar flicked his tail. "We have all had a good season." Hollyleaf saw unease flicker in his gaze for a moment before he blinked it away. This might be the last greenleaf the living clans would see. Riverstar interrupted her thoughts. "Riverclan has had only one concern." He tipped his head, his eyes questioning as he scanned the Clans. "There have been traces of rogues and loners appearing in our territory. No cat has been spotted, but there have been strange scents and paw prints." Hollyleaf froze. Intruders in StarClan?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
