    Riverpaw

    Riverpaw nods with grim agreement to Lilywolf's decision. "Goldenstar! I'm no medicine cat, but any kit could tell you need to eat, too!" she exclaimed, watching him collapse. She rushed to Goldenstar's side, dragging half the rabbit with her and the moss that lay untouched on the floor of the den. "Here. Drink, eat." <p> ((And be merry! Lol that really came out of nowhere...))

    Heathertail

    She murmured something too low for any cat to hear. Her voice was choked with pain as she mewed," I see. I will leave now." She padded out, her shoulders slumped. She glanced back at Lilywolf and Goldenstar sadly, but hurt glittered in her eyes. They had just hurt her. And after her first litter of kits, she had promised to make anyone who had made her suffer suffer. So far, she had fulfilled that oath. She padded out of the clearing with a final glance, already having guessed the fate of her daughter. Sadness filled her gaze, but weariness overwhelmed it. She finally collasped at the river.

    Goldenstar

    Goldenstar nods and smiles, planting a gentle kiss on her nose before he stands and moves to Lilywolf's side, curling around her and setting a paw over her shoulder. The golden tom gently begins grooming her tabby pelt, purring as he did. He always found happiness even during the hardest times when he could focus on Lilywolf; whether it was her voice, her smile, her pelt, anything. "I only have one complaint. How is it he manged to get so far that fast and I still haven't been able to drag your tail out to see the lights yet?" Goldenstar teases with a gentle purr, hoping desperately to get her to at least smile. As he grooms Lilywolf his tail curls gently with hers and he slowly works to let go of the sorrow and pain that have created a deep hole inside. He fills it with memories like the first time he'd seen Lilywolf or when Wolfsun was born. Using the memories as a cure for the pain, Goldenstar focuses on his task and even smiles as he does.

    Goldenstar

    Goldenstar watches Heathertail until she has left before he lets himself slump to the ground in a weary heap. His tattered pelt rising and falling with a heavy breath, the golden tom's eyes shut as he tries to keep from blacking out. "Eat please Lilywolf," he murmurs quietly, his head buried in his paws.

    Lilywolf to Horseclan - The Leader's Den

    Created

    Lilywolf to Horseclan - The Leader's Den <br />

    <br />

    Created by the boulders that support the high log is a cave that is nearly hidden in shadow. Inside the sandy floor is cool and soft and dappled light flits across the stone walls. A single nest made with extra feathers sits towards the back with a piece of prey resting nearby. This is where the leader of Horseclan can rest after a busy day of running the clan. Clanmates can also come here to speak with the leader or may be asked to come for the same reason. Much of Horseclan's daily business is conducted within these walls and it is often an honor to be surrounded by them in the presence of a leader. ~ The Leader's Den, Lilywolf
