    Windstreak's Flight ~ Chapter Two

    [ A/N: I will try to use all of the application. :3 I may change them a little, though. ]
    <p>
    I shivered despite the overbearing heat of Rainkit and Daisykit at my side, not to mention Ma's protective form draped over our figures.
    <br>
    "Ma, who's Turtlepoppy?" I asked with a shaky breath.
    <br>
    "Shhh. . . She's Cloudystar's mate." Mallowtail rasped her tongue mournfully over my minute nogin, making my nose dip to the mossy nest
    <br>
    I kept my silence after this converse, peering through the dense grass out into the camp clearing. I made out two shapes. One was Ravenwing. The other was an equally dark cat, though I had yet to meet them. Their identity was not known by me.
    <br>
    I buried my petal-like maw in my littermate's downy fuzz and let my conscience take the path less traveled, dreams invading my mind, though they were dreams full of fantasy and fatal secrets.
    <br>
    ~~~
    <br>
    When I awoke again, it was moonhigh. Rainkit and Daisykit were in silent slumber around me. Ma's pale pelt shone in the dim starlight.
    <br>
    Curiousity overtook my fear of the new world and I crept from my comfy nest, abandoning the simple warmth that my small family provided.
    <br>
    Pawsteps like featherfalls, I slipped through the shadows of the camp. I became lightheaded nearly from breathing so little, though I was afraid of exhaling too hard and alerting the guard.
    <br>
    Rebellion and adventure shooting through my nerves, I pushed my way through the tight bramble walls. Thorns tugged and snagged at my pelt, trying to pull me back into the camp. My will to discover overpowered them and I lurched forward suddenly, falling head over paws into a shallow gully.
    <br>
    My was heart thundering so loud, I swore to StarClan they could hear it in SunClan. I shook off my embarressment and stood up haughtily, a trill of pleasure warming my fur as I realized cleary what I was doing.
    <br>
    A smile splitting my maw, I crawled out of the gully, my nose in the air as new scents penetrated deep into my pores. I slunk along in a half-daze, unsure of where I was going.
    <br>
    I pricked my ears as harsh sounds suddenly met my ears. Instinctively, I crouched, fearing a fight.
    <br>
    What puzzled me was when giggling followed a shwaking noise.
    <br>
    Need for knowledge flooded over my fear and I inched forward, stopping as my soft pads dipped over a crumbling ledge. Before me was a hollow of dry dirt, moss and bracken cushioning the center.
    <br>
    The scenery wasn't what caught my attention though. It was what was going on in the hollow.
    <br>
    Quickslash was there, a purr rumbling from his throat and echoing around the hard walls of the indention in the earth.
    <br>
    Another cat was there, too. It was obviously a she-cat, her lanky dark brown tabby form curling around Quickslash's like a wicked vixen.
    <br>
    Quickslash nipped at her, making her squeal. She giggled louder and slapped his muzzle playfully.
    <br>
    "Darkrose, I love you." He rumbled, nuzzling her chest.
    <br>
    She murmured appreciatively and licked his ears roughly. "I love you, too, Quickslash." She cooed.
    <br>
    I stared, wide-eyed. What was that stench?
    <br>
    I sniffed again. Recognition clicked through me, followed my bewilderment. The scent was the one that had trailed Ravenwing earlier. She had come from a fight with SunClan.
    <br>
    Darkrose.
    <br>
    Was.
    <br>
    From.
    <br>
    SunClan.
    <br>
    . . . Quickslash was a traitor. . .
    <p>
