    To Jaysoar and Moonlight

    What? Did you expect me to lie and say her story was great? Because it wasn't. Moonlight, if you ever decide to become a author for a living, you'd be broke in less than a day. Do everyone a favor and stop writing. Permanately.

    Jaysoar to to Moonlight

    You just made Moonlight feel horrible of herself. You know that everyone else does that too. She said it in her own words, not in yours.

"GoldenLeaf push" he yelled and she pushed multiple times and threee kits came out "you have three girls congrats" he meowed and left the nursery. She looked down on her 3 kits "Oh MusicNote they are so cute" she meowed "Yes they are dear what are their names" he asked "the blind greyis blue one is Jaykit the honey one with a little leaf on her side is Leafkit and the other honey one with the "vines" is Honeykit." Replyed GoldenLeaf "Such beautiful names dear" 6 moons later....
    "Leafkit get off Jaykit please" asked Honeykit "Alright honeykit" mumbled Leafkit as she tumbled off Jaykit. Suddenly they heard the call "All cats old enough to catch their own prey gather here benith High Rock for a clan meeting" The 3 kits rushed out of the nursery and sat before high rock. "It is time for 3 kits to become apprentices. Leafkit please step forward, Do you promise to train as hard as you can and learn the warrior code?" "I do" Leafkit said "Then from now untill you recive your warrior name you will be known as Leafpaw Mysticwing you are ready for your first apprentice. Pass on everything you learned from MusicNote onto her. Jaykit and Honeykit please step forward. Jaykit i understand you want to be a med cat." "Yes Fallenstar" "Then from now untill you recive your med cat name you will known as Jaypaw and you mentor will be Bearwind. Honeykit your mentor will be Bamblewish and you will be known as Honeypaw. Hawkclan this meeting is dissmissed." He meowed and jumped of high rock. Bramblewish took Honeypaw on a tour of he territory and when he wasnt looking a cat apprenticenapped Honeypaw. She wad knocked unconsis and when she woke up she was in the Mythclan camp she rubbed her eyes and looked around and over heard two cats talking "We will keep her and make them say that the lost the other one Leafpaw and rename her Honeypaw and we can train this Honeypaw." Meowed one cat "But keepstar wont the other clans know shes from Hawkclan?"
