    Greenfur's story:how kittypet turned to clan cat and back to kittypet.

    A tortishell she-cat with green eyes padded into her twolegs main den. The twoleg kits were watching the box with the moving colors. She never understood why they liked to watch it so long. She padded on into the eating den. She drank some water then scratched,irritated,at her coller then ran to the dens entrance and out her special entrance and went ouside. She saw the forest in the back-yard of her best friend Blacky a pure black tom with purple eyes. I hope Blacky's awake. She thought. Usally he isnt but maybe he will be this morning.

    Heartstorms past pt 3

    So heartstorm is know a full fledged warrior, and a father of one. But when he recives a phrophocey telling him he is destined to die to save the clan , heartstorm keeps to himself. Growing more cold everyday...even to his own daughter..............can heatherpaw and boonfur find out why heartstorm is acting so cold....in time to save him................................................••••••••••••••••••••€•€•€•€•€••••••••••••••••••••••••
    "Heartstorm...." Willownose was inturupted when heartstorm turned on her, his amber eyes wild "stay away from me!" He snarled "youll get hurt!" Willownose walked forward "heartstorm...no" but she felt something pull her back. It was Boonfur.....and heatherpaw. "Heatherpaw. Your fathers been acting oddly lately" boonfur commented meelly, curling his tail over his paws "its like hes a complete different cat...." a shiver shot through boonfurs spine "its like..deathstar has control over him again..." heatherpaw looked at the warrior in surprise "thats impossible" she sneered, But the fearfull look in her eyes suggested to boonfur that heatherpaw knew that it was deathstar. "Maybe we should...spy....i mean. Hummingjay knows how to step into dreams....hummingjay can help us." Boonfur suggested warily. To his surprise, Heatherpaw nodded aggreement to the arangement, "that sounds right..." she murmured '"ok...ill talk to hummingjay later." Boonfur stretched his neck forward and licked her ear "alright." And he joined foxtalon and riverpelt at the freshkill pile........Heartstorm paced, he had felt this before...he had felt this claw gripping coldness sear his heart before.....he felt the gut wreching hatred churn in his stomach as he lept angrily at hummingjay, "you can never help heatherpaw and boonfur!" He snarled and unseathed his claws. Hummungjay struggled underneath the warriors grasp "i already..agreed to help them!" He choaked out, his paws gripping heartstorms shoulder blades as he desperatly tried to escape. Heartstorms paw slashed down onto the medicine cats neck "now. They cant get it!" He came to his senses when he relized hummingjay limp underneath his grasp "n..no..." the warrior backed away with eyes wide "h..hummingjay" he nosed the cats neck, and relizing he was dead, ran for the river. Quickly he wshed away hummingjays scent and his blood and ran to the hunting grounds................................................"hummingjays dead!" A wail broke out in camp as willownose stummbled into camp. Hailstar quickly padded to him "wounds?" He demanded. Willownose caught her breath "slashed throat". Hailstars eyes clouded, hummingjay was his brother " scent?" Willownose shook her head and beckond for leechpelt. Leechpelt dropped a lump of dark brown fur, it was scentless, yet farmiliar in the eyes of the leader. "Where did you find hummingjay" he pressed. "Near the river" willownose answered quickly...and hailstar lost hope....................................."it can only be one of.....oceanclan..." he choakoded out............................."boonfur what will we do now!" Heatherpaw fretted "hummingjays dead! Perfect timeing to!" Boonfur nodded "heartstorm must of found out....that was heartstorms fur right?" Heatherpaw nodded "i know my fathers fur anywhere...." she answered "it was definantly his" Boonfur sighed "hiw is this happening...." just then a bluejays feather and hummingbird feather dropped infront of them "a phrophocey.." heatherpaw murmured. Boonfur nodded "thanks..hummingjay....."
