    Spiritkit padded into the forest, sick of being ignored. She saw some juicy, delicious red berries. She hated berries, but these… She picked one and ate it. It was wonderful. Just as she was picking a second one, she began to feel nausious. She saw swirls, bright colors, and everything turned hazy* Wait a second, DEATHBERRIES?! *These were spiritkits last words as she slipped into death*

    TIGERBLAZE & CINDERTAIL

    TIGERBLAZE:"I'm very proud that I was deputy of Wildclan. We are a new clan but I hope it will keep getting bigger. I'm sorry but I can't stay a member of Wildclan. Spiritstar, I love you so much and I will miss you! Please keep Wildclan running without me."~Tigerblaze. CINDERTAIL:"I wasn't a warrior of Wildclan for long at all but it was great. I'm sorry but I can't be a member of Wildclan anymore either. Emberfur, I really wish that we could stay mates. I love you and I will miss you!~Love, Cindertail. (We can't rp anymore. We're going into highschool so we will be very busy. I am going to be looking for a babysitting job and Tigerblaze is going to be busy struggling to finish homework and reports. So we will be too busy to rp. Bye.)
