    The silver flames prologue

    The moon shinned brightly with the stars at its side. Winds chilled fur of the sleeping yet stiring cats below. A murmur rose from the sleeping cretures. Dark amber eys flashed in the shadows. Anything moving could pephapes a settling cat or someone going to the dirtplace. But the eyes gleamed with a strange emotion. Hate possibly or maybe a burning wanting for revenge. Gray paws moved silently through the den. Its white stripes almost glowed, almost reavling the hidden cat. A white ca followed behind. A quiet growl came from her throat. Franticly, the gray cat looked up and scrambled out of the den. The white cat followed like a shadow. "I saw what you were going to do there" the white cat meowed hesitently. "It had to be done" the gray cat replied quickly. "No it didnt " the white cat hissed. "Letting cats live forever!" The gray cat looked at her outraged. "Deer..." the white cat began but her voice trailled off. "Moon! Ita my jib. I dont suppose Fawn will enjoy this job when I die" Deer laughed. "You wont die. Your the master of death. You control it and stop it from coming to whoeer you like" Moon remineded her. "Its not that easy" Deer told her briskly. "I wont let die!" Moon vowed. "Your the master of life.-" Deer began to retort. "And I will bring you life" Moon interupted. Deer looked down saddly. "I will walk with MoonglowClan" she told her. "What! I can bring you life" Moon reminded her. "Never overecced the population rate" Deer warned her. Moon closed her eyes but they jerked wide open. White rings shiwed in her eyes. Fear. "It already happened" she whispered. Deer closed her eyes then opened them up. "Goodbye Moon. Silver flames will light but darkest fears will bring them down." Deer stepped backm "Dont die yet! Explain to me what you mean!" Moon yowled in frustrstion. "All in goid time. When a cat if silver rises, the flames will rise" Deer meowed. "Stop answering my quistions with quistions!' Moon yowled yet again. Deer didnt answer but fell. Her flank rose slowly but stopped moving. Moon was dead. The shadows whispered quietly. An owl hooted but Moon didnt care. Deer lad there, dead, her amber eyes glossy and her flank still and cold. Just like the rest of her gray-and-whuite body. Moon leaned forward and sniffef. A yowl of grief and agony gripped the forest beyond. Flames erupoted from behind. They were silver and cold if ice, yet heat flowed from their flickering flames. Darkness swallowed the flames. Soon all the light was gone and darknesd claimed Deers lithe body. The silver flames regrew and quickly spred throughout the forest as one part of the moon glowed brighter then the others....

    The Mission (Chapter 7)

    He suddenly kicks something under the ash. He gets down on his knees and pulls out a skull. With a code. Seeing the code, a single tear escapes his eye. "Quist," he whispers, another tear escaping his other eye. He gently places the skull in another container and gets to his feet. He still hasn't found the skull he's been searching for, and time is running out. He continues searching, finding skulls that aren't worth his time. He found Rint and Quist, surely he can find this last skull... (still to be continued...)
