    ~Glowfeather's Story~

    CHAPTER 1 ~ JUST A KIT ____________________________________________ Glwkit was shivering in G.O.A. territory. She haden't even opened her eyes yet, but she heard smirking around. "She will never survive!" Hissed a tom. "She is too small!" Hissed a she-cat. A body moved around her, and her mother Darksoul hissed to the others. "You ar right. She will never make an assasin." And she felt teeth bite into her scruff and pick her up. She squeled in alarm. She heard purring around her. The cat holding her carried her roughly, as if he didnt care. They traveled a long way and finally she opened her eyes and looked up. The tom holding her was a dark grey tabby. He had sharp teeth and her neck hurt just by looking at them. "Let me go!" She squeked indignatly. The tom purred with amusment. "I'm taking you to SunClan. You won't stand a chance" he hissed. She sighed and winced in pain and she swung around and soon she started bleeding. "Owy!" She cried and the tom grunted. "Good!" He hissed and bit down harder making her cry. "Shut up!" Hissed the tom angrily. Finnally they entered new woods and the tom growled. "Finnally!" And jumped in the territory hitting a random den that smelled of milk. He hissed and dropped her, glaring at her. Then his eyes softened. "Good luck, daughter." Mewed the tom, he nameless kit looking after him with wonder in her eyes. Suddenly something snagged he pelt. She looked over and saw thorn, and she felt blood well up again. "Help!" She squeeled and a she-cat came in. "Poor thing! Do you need a mommy!" She exclaimed softly. "Im Glimmer." "I dont have a name." Wailed the kit. "Glowkit" mewed Glimmer, laying down so her new kit could suckle. "Youre father is Strongstrike." Whispered Glimmer. "I will love you forever" she murmered softly as Glowkit started suckling. After she was done she yawned and fell asleap. "I love you mommy" she murmered before falling asleap. ______________________________________________ END OF CHAPTER ONE! NEXT CHAPTER COMING SOON ON NEXT RESULT! REVIEW HERE! THANKS! ~Glowfeather.
