She chanted Glosspaw's name happily as she flicked her tail. "Does this mean there's another apprentice to boss around?" :D ~Puddles

The deputy jumped onto the highlog and looked over the clearing. Her white coat was just washed and her bright blue eyes shined happily and proudy. She took a few seconds to look at the clan before yowling "May all cats old enough to catch their own prey gather here for a clan meeting! Tonight I ask Starclan to look opon these two great apprentices and be proud of how much they have trained to learn your ways. Dovepaw, Whitepaw, please step foward. You have both trained hard to learn the ways of the warrior and have done well. Now do you accept to defend the warrior code and this clan even at the cost of your life? Very well. From this day foward you will be known as Dovesong and Whitefrost. May Starclan approve of these two new warriors! Dovsong! Whitefrost! Dovesong! Whitefrost!

Silverstar lept onto the high-log. "Let all cats who can catch their own prey gather beneath the high-log for a clan meeting!"<br> She waited as the clan trickled out from the dens and padded over. She smiled, seeing Glosskit neat, and excited.<br> "I hate to keep an eager kit waiting, but I have to make some announcements. First, I am extremely grateful to Timepool, Moonflught and Wolfpelt for advertising and keeping this clan going. They deserve a round of applause."<br> She watched the clan stomp out a round of applause. She dipped her head to Moonflight, Timepool, and Wolfpelt, who were sitting together. <br> When the applause died down, Silverstar continued. "I am going to be more active now, as Tech Week is over, but I still have shows on the weekends and brush-ups on Wednesday. After March 18, I will be done with the show and active again."<br> She glanced at Glosskit, who was squirming with impacience. "Ok. Ok. Your turn now." She smiled.<br> "I am proud to announce our newest apprentice. Glosskit, please step forward." Glosskit walked forward, wriggling with excitment. "Glosskit, the time has come. From thid day forward, until you earn your warrior name, you shall be known as Glosspaw."<br> Silverstar beconed to Timepool. "Timepool is a long-time warrior of Jayclan, and she is known for her stealth and her speed. Timepool will mentor Glosspaw." She looked back to Glosspaw. "Train hard and you will be a warrior soon."<br> The clan cheered as Timepool touched noses with Glosspaw. "Glosspaw! Glosspaw! Glosspaw!"<br> "Meeting dismissed," Silverstar yowled, leaping down from the high-log.<p> ~$ilverstar<br> Please, please post
