    A big brown tom padded out. His thin fur showed his muscles. His green eyes looked at the cats. He had a hole in one ear. "Can I join"

    Halfkit

    Her newly-opened green eyes shone with excitement. "You're right, this /is/ fun!" She exclaimed. Halfkit looked down at her pelt. The black back half (oooh tounge twister!) of her body blended in with her uncle's fur, making an illusion that she only had her upper torso. "Hey, Goldenkit, lookit me!" She meowed. Then an epiphanny (or however you spell it) came upon the shekit. "Uncle Goldy, why is your fur black instead of gold?"

    Flightpaw ~ Explantion

    Hey Lily, I am going to give my explantion for Rainpaw now! I was new to rp didn't see anyone rping him so I rped him. I saw you thank StarClan the kits were safe and I thought they were Velvetstars. I found your explantion Lily and realized Rainkit was your kit and I also thought we were kits for two days. (Mistake about a moon) So I made myself an apprintence. I wanted action in the clan, made mistakes, my sister made them worse and impostered and made up stuff. I tried to make exuses but they just made things worse. Sorry. I miss you Lilywolf. You were a great clanmate and hope that sacrifice worked! Going to pump it up! At Adoration I prayed for you and Lilywolf. Asked God to Bless you and Lilywolf. Gtg. Bye!

    Pads in, and stops when he sees Cometstorm and the tom. He smiles wearily at the tom.

    Goldenstripe

    Goldenstripe scaled one of the maple trees around the clearing and found a branch where he could see ithout being seen. His only concern was finding Velvetstar and staying clear of Lilywolf, but at the moment he saw niether. After much waiting, he finally spotted his sister carrying a mouthful of squirming kits. At first Goldenstripe was suprised, he didn't believe Lilywolf when she'd mentioned Velvetstar's having kits. He watched as she brought the four into the open hollow at the bottom of the tree next to his, and listened as she used each kits name. He smiled when he saw the silver white tabby adressed with Goldenkit. Now the black tom waited for Velvetstar to leave for what seemed like another eternity. Eventually the kits slept, and Velvetstar left. Taking his only chance, the once deputy of Horseclan quickly walked to the end of his branch, and after assesing the distance, lept for the next tree. He loved being in trees, but wasn't particularly skilled at it, and almost yelped in fear when one paw missed it's mark. Goldenstripe quickly vanished to a hiding place behind leaves, where he waited to make sure he hadn't drawn unwanted attention. After a few minutues, Goldenstripe began searching the tree for a way in besides the front way facing the clearing. He found a small hole in the top of the tree that led to the inside, and when he looked in he could see Velvetstar's kits sleeping soundly below. The black tom squeezed in, unsure of his plan at this point, and no sooner was he inside than his claws slipping. He fell, scrabbling at the sides for a grasp to no avail. He landed thankfully on his paws, just over the kits. Panting, Goldenstripe realized he could be seen from the clearing if he moved around to much, so he set to work. He first picked up Goldenkit and Seakit, only able to carry two, and started up the tree trunk. He clawed his way halfway up before he had to stop. The kits were heavy and the trunk was too tight to keep going. So Goldenstripe first used a paw to push Seakit through the small opening and onto a wide branch, and then did the same to Goldenkit. "Don't move!" He whispered to the two before returning for the others. This time he let himself fall, landing next to Pridekit and Halfkit. He did the same with these two, though he wasn't sure he'd make it all the way up. Once he was close enough, Goldenstripe pushed Pridekit through. Then his back paws slipped and all his and Halfkit's weight was left on one paw. He was sure his claws would be ripped out and the two of them would fall, but he forced himself through the opening holding onto Halfkit, the both of them barely fitting through. Goldenstripe exhaled in relief, looking at his four neiced and nephews tiredly. He picked up the two shekits and beckond for Pridekit and Seakit to follow. He'd found a low hanging branch that bent under his weight. When Goldenstripe walked to the end, it touched the ground and the two toms could safely get down. Goldenstripe nodded aprovingly and led them away until a hill was between them and the camp, keeping them fom sight. "Ok guys, we're gonna go somewhere fun until Velveteyes comes to get you," he said, worried they would be reluctant to leave their mother. Before yone could protest, Goldenstripe lifted the shekits onto his back and carried the toms in his mouth, setting off for a safe place. ~Goldenstripe
