    Heatherheart's Destiny Prolouge

    A golden she cat sat on a wet ledge. The ledge overlooked a rushing waterfall. Little rainbows appeared on the rocks around the falls.
    Suddenly, a dark brown tom leaped onto the ledge. "Why would you choose to meet here? It is so wet and the noise, I can't hear myself think," the tom growled.
    "I chose this place so that no one will overhear what I say. It is very important," the golden tabby responded calmly.
    "Well what is it that you have to say? It must have to do with your destiny. Have you finally realized that the clans are in danger? And it's all because of you," Brownfoot spat. The she cat flinched at Brownfoot's harsh words.
    "It's not her fault that she died before her destiny was finished," a black she cat meowed landing on the ledge. "It really isn't your fault, Golden Sun."
    "Thank you, Hollybranch," Golden Sun replied. Hollybranch and Brownfoot sat down and pricked their ears.
    "The real reason I gathered the three of us, is because my destiny needs to be completed. I was thinking we could send a kit into the world."
    "Are you sure it's not too late?" Hollybranch questioned.
    "It can't be. We have to try again," Golden Sun pleaded.
    "We wouldn't have had to try again if you had just stayed out of the battle," Brownfoot mumbled angrily.
    "Forget that, Brownfoot. It's too late to change the past. Golden Sun is right. We have to do something now, before it becomes too late," Hollybranch explained.
    "Do you think we could send a kit into the world?" Golden Sun asked again.
    "Yes. But you'd have to visit the kit in their dreams. Are you willing to do that?" Hollybranch mewed.
    "I will do anything for the clans," Golden Sun answered. "Especially after what I did."
    "Than it's planned," Brownfoot agreed. "I'll talk to Lionstar tomorrow."
    "Sounds good," Golden Sun replied with a smile.
    Golden Sun watched Brownfoot and Hollybranch leave. They gracefully leaped off of the ledge and landed neatly beside the falls.
    "Goodbye," they screamed before running off.
    Golden Sun sighed. She'd be walking among the one with a second destiny soon.
