    Spatters of a Life: Chapter 8

    Shard ducked, his father's claws only grazing his ear. But as soon as he looked up, Rocky slashed at his face. As the blood dripped down his nose, the salty tang filling his nostrils, he realized he was filled with a rage he couldn't explain.<br>With a yowl he leaped onto the rogue leader, tearing his claws madly through his flesh. "You killed my mother," he hissed through gritted teeth. "You killed my brother. You killed my mother's mate. But there's no way you're killing me!"<br>And with that he sank his teeth in the cat's throat, feeling his jaws slowly close as one thought screamed in his mind: 'This time I'll make sure you die!'<br>But Rocky bowled into him, knocking him off and ripping his fangs from the rogue's throat. For just a heartbeat, their eyes met, and Shard heard him whisper something before knocking him unconcious.<p>Oak was just finishing off a female rogue when he saw Shard tackle their leader. He ran over to help, screeching with the ec<_>stasy of battle, but was suddenly bowled over by a familiar shape.<br>"What are you doing?!" he shouted, but he was cut off as the other cat's claws dug into his throat.<br>"Had to leave this place with a parting gift," he said as Oak's blood dribbled out around his paw, between his toes. The sight of blood excited him, and he unconsciously dug his claws in deeper.<br>Oak's blows weakened as life left him, and before his vision faded completely, he saw a calico shape running toward him. "Ivy..." he murmured, too soft for him to hear himself, and he looked up into the amber eyes of his killer as he died.<p>The cat that killed Oak ran over to help Rocky, but Shard was already unconscious. "I wanted him!" he complained, but Rocky just grinned at him humorlessly.<br>"Too bad. We have to take care of our leader; Shard got him pretty good."<br>The other cat looked, and the sight of the giant tom's blood made him shiver. Then he looked at Shard, barely wounded. "Oh, come on!" he hissed. "I would have let him black out from blood loss instead."<br>"Yeah," Rocky replied dryly, "that's kinda why we didn't let you have him."<br>The other cat snorted and looked around, spotting a black-and-white pelt. "There's something else I want to take from them," he informed Rocky, and without waiting for a response he was off.<p>Rocky watched the other cat go, hatred burning in him. He looked back at his brother, who almost appeared asleep. Dust darkened his white pelt, and for a moment the sun glowed through orange-tinted clear rock in just the right way, making Shard's eyes appear flame-colored. Rocky laughed to himself as he grabbed his brother's scruff. Their father shakily got to his paws and looked at Rocky, blood dripping off the loose flesh hanging raggedly from his neck.<br>"Let's go," he gasped out, heading for the entrance. Rocky watched Oak's killer attack a she-cat, then shook his head and followed his father, carrying Shard by the scruff.<p>Kite was not being attacked in the sense that blood would be shed. Rather, she felt a weight land on her shoulders and immediately shook it off. When she saw her assailant, she gasped. "You...you're with them...?"<br>The cat sort of smirked, getting to his paws and trying to ignore the tang of blood around him. "Yes," he answered, stepping closer. "And soon you will be, too." And with that, he hit her head hard enough to knock her out.<p>Yes, I realize it's not Wednesday. The results got completely messed up. I don't even know. But I'm out of characters.
