Amazingly amazing story. Offwords...

Holly <p> &nbsp Holly opened her eyes, the glare of a pale sun shining down, beating down at her sodden fur. She rolled over and groaned, pain and exhaustedness aching through her body. <br> "Where am I?" She thought to herself. Her eyes darted down, seeing her black fur muddy and dripping, twigs and leaves sticking in her fur. A ring of water surrounded her, most likely from her fur. She wondered what her mother would think if she saw her... <p> &nbsp Her mother. The memories came rushing back, one by one, like the wave that carried her heaven-knows-where. The wave that probably took her life. <br> No. She couldn't think like that. Holly's parents had a chance of survival; a slim one, but a possible chance. She would find them. Yes, that sounded good. Hauling herself up with much effort, she began to trek towards the direction of an oak. She scampered up the branches, twigs scraping at her fur. When she reached the top, she realized she actually had some luck after all- the river carried her almost home! <p> &nbsp The hollow she lived in was visible through the thick trees, and she could see the path she took, although it looked horrible. The dirt was softened into mud, the grass was reduced to stubs, and a huge branch had fallen into the middle of the path. Sighing, Holly began to descend. Until a flash of golden fur caught her eye in her peripheral vision. Gasping, she quickly climbed down and ran towards it. As she got closer, she noticed it was Sky, and the large lump of black fur was her mother, Blossom. A lump rose in her throat, and she had her chest tightened with worry. <p> &nbsp Holly ran closer, and turned over their bodies. She already knew they were dead- their eyes were wide open, glazed with death. They definitely weren't breathing, and their mouths hung open in a silent scream. She choked on tears, and chided herself. She needed to get back to Hawk. Holly wasn't happy to see him. She was absolutely terrified. <p> &nbsp When she walked home and got to the hollow, she went up to Hawk. "Where have you been?" Hawk hissed. Holly simply beckoned with her tail and led him to her parents. "Where are you even taking me? It's a waste of my time..." his voice trailed off as he saw the soaking, dead bodies of Sky and Blossom. His eyes widened with shock, his jaw open in shock. <p> &nbsp "What have you done?" Hawk roared. Holly shrunk under his furious gaze, the blazing eyes burning into her fur. <br> "I'm sorry! We were- we were caught in the storm, and we-" she started. Hawk screeched and leaped at her, claws unsheathed. He ripped at her fur, biting at her legs, slashing at her ears. "Excuses!" He shrieked. <p> &nbsp Holly began to scream. She screamed for her pain, for everything that had gone wrong, for her family, and everything broken in her life. <p> Hope you liked it! You can do character applications if you want. I can make my characters meet them in the future if possible. Next part in res. 6! <br> Yes, l know this is in res. 2. It's multi res. Part one of the chapter in res. 4. <br> &real_ain

Rose<p>Thank you Lily. :) I know it won't be the same, but I'll be back eventually, hopefully. I've been missing everyone for the past several weeks. It's boring, lonely, angering, and so much more. It really sucks. And thanks for the compliment. Yeah, he can stay away from me right now. He's been using and playing me for too long and right now I'm just fed up with everything. Still have to deal with him in two classes and homeroom every day though &gt;:( I hope I can see you again soon too. You have a great summer too then :) Oh, and I do have a boyfriend now. At least he doesn't hide things from me. Or expect anything from me. Which is nice of him. Whelp, class is about to end so gotta run. Hopefully I'll talk to you soon :) Please post who rps who for me real quick too please. Thanks.</p> <p>~Rosie</p>

Rosepetal to Lilywolf! Read now!<p> Okay, first off, I'm super duper grounded. Yay me. It's not entirely my fault, but that's all my stepmother will believe &gt;.&lt; Okay, if I happen to be gone for over four months (August? bad with months...), then please find a permanent rp'r for Rosepetal and Lavapaw. In the meantime, can you please find temporary rp's for those two? I do not believe it's fair for them to &quot;not&quot; be around for several months and months. Laramie (stepmother) has taken my nooks, iPod, CD player, everything, from me for at least a few months. I &quot;stole&quot; (more like did my sister's homework) my older sister's biology homework and so now everything around me went downhill ever since. Can't believe it's only been a week and a half. If Comet is back, do tell him I hope to speak to him again soon and tell him to tell his sister that I can't use my email for some time either. Sorry and thank you.</p> <p> ~Rose</p>

Oh dude that's rough. I'm sorry. Maybe it was just the moment? I mean I get called way worse than POS in the moment but mom always comes around and I know she still loves me. And haha umm ya Lily isn't really receptive to that new hope right now so she might not be very grateful! Just a warning! :) Thanks for that though! I'm still in love with Opalburst's name! ~ Lilywolf &hearts

Crystal padded to Lily and motioned her to follow. She quickly began to talk. &quot;I'm pregnant. A tom, he called himself Elre and he attacked me. I don't want this but I don't know what to do. I'm scared.&quot; (Super rushed, school almost over :/)
