Calico

( 7 )

Overview

It seemed like a simple job-guide Josh and Sarah to Bow Ridge to live with their aunt until they reached their 18th birthday. It was want their aunt Rebecca wanted, and the best choice Calico Ramsey thought he could make.
But someone wants them dead, which makes no sense to Calico. Neither do the feelings aroused by the nearness of the handsome young man from Chicago-feelings that seem to be returned, and nothing in his past has prepared him ...

Read an Excerpt

Dan kept his eyes on the trail ahead, sitting ramrod-straight in the saddle, reins loose in his hand. It was as though he were talking to the soft breeze that carried his words to Calico, who rode slightly behind him. "I know we ain't never talked much about it--don't seem men have t' say a lot when they understand each other's well as you an' me--but I want you to know I meant what I said. These kids may be my blood kin, but you're the closest thing I got to real family. I just didn't want you to think their comin' would make a difference far as you an' me's concerned."

Calico spurred Dusty gently until they were riding side-by-side.

"Hell, Uncle Dan, ya think I'd mind whatever ya did? Ya don't owe me nothin'. It's me that owes you. You're the one saved my hide when my folks was killed, an' took me in an' looked after me all these years. Where'd I'd o' been without ya?"

For the first time, Dan turned his head to look him straight in the eye.

"You know, boy--" he began

The shot was like a whipcrack through the quiet air.

    Calicopaw's Prophecy, Chapter Two: The Clan

    "Y-You mean StarClan?" Calico whimpered, tears pricked her green eyes. "Afraid so, hun." Snow mewed and pulled her daughter in for a hug. Rock leaned against his mother and sister, seeking comfort. Snow wrapped her tail around her son comfortingly. "There, there my dears. Someone would like to meet you." Snow whispered,"Wolf-flame, you can come out now." A gray, silver, black, and white calico tom with startling aqua blue eyes paded from the bushes. Calico and Rock gaped at him. "The Wolf-flame? As in Grandpa Wolf-flame?" Calicopaw asked, astonished by the handsome tom. "The one and only." Wolf-flame chuckled then looked at Snow with sad eyes. "Are you really sure you want to do this? You could join too." He said softly. "I'm no Clan cat, but Stormstar went on and on about how great it was. I want that life for my kits." Snow whispered. "What? Your sending us away? Why? What did we do bad momma?" Rock mewled imploringly. "No, no my little one, you did nothing wrong but leaf-bare is approaching. The Clan cats will be able to catch you more food than I would be able too. Now go along with Wolf-flame and be good for me, okay?" She mewed. The truth was Snow's body was slowly shutting down, she didn't want her kits to see her like that. "Take care of them Wolf-flame." Snow added then loped away without a backwards glance. Calico whimpered, tears rolled down her calico and white face. "Momma! Momma come back! You promised we would be together forever and always! You promised..." She cried. "I'm terribly sorry kits, come along lets go back to my Clan- OUR Clan." Wolf-flame corrected himself and led the way. Rock dropped back walking beside his littler sister who kept looking back over her shoulder. "Mom's not coming back Calico." He said softly. "I know..." Calicopaw mewed. "Isn't your Clan LightningClan?" Calico asked Wolf-flame. "Yes, we border the great WolfClan." Their grandfather replied. "Wow! Really? WolfClan?" Rock asked, his blue eyes wide in amazement. "Really and truly." Wolf-flame replied.
