Okay so sorry I never said where this part would be in the last part. I said where this would be at demigod diaries so hopefully alot of people saw it. Continue to look for updates at demigod diaries. Thanks to everyone who complemented me! Part 9 will be at next res.- Rachel sat up and looked around. "What happened?" She asked. "A prophecy for a quest," I said quietly. "But what did it mean?" Poppy asked. "Well," Chiron began. "It said children of light eldest sired." All eyes turned to me." That means JoJo." "So I'm leading a quest?" I grinned "This could be fun." "Shall lead 7 east to the Storm of Fire. So east, across the ocean." "But does it mean 7 including me, or 7 plus me?" I wondered. "I think we should stick with 7 inluding you. We dont want to send to many demigods, even 7 is pushing it," Chiron decided. "What was the next part?" Rachel asked. "Something about cauliflour." "Not cauliflour, Call of Flower," Meg said. "That would mean the child of the flower goddess, which would mean, hmm, me, would come." I groaned. Now Meg was coming. Ughh. "The choice of 1 could end their days. A gift of pearl must be diminished. Siblings love right to the finish." I ended. "A gift of pearl, what could that mean? And which siblings?" Rachel asked. Poppy and I looked at each other. Could we be the siblings. 'Right to the finish' made it sound bad. Like we were going to die."So I need to pick 5 other people. Meg and me are definately going." I said. Chiron nodded his head, "Indeed. JoJo, would you like to have a cup of tea? You look quite nervous." Did he think I wasn't brave? That I couldn't handle myself. Actually a cup of tea did sound pretty good. "I'm not that nervous but I guess I wouldn't mind a cup of tea." I answered. Chiron went to get the water and left Rachel, Meg, Poppy and I. I took a seat as far away from Meg as possible. Rachel looked from Meg to me, "So whats the deal with you two? Why do you hate each other?" She asked. Meg and I glared at the same time. "It is a a long, complicated and unpleasent story that generally has JoJo being I'd rather not get into." Meg said. "Sorry," Rachel aid quickly," Won't ask again." Then Chiron walked in with the tea. I took a quick sip. It was good though hot and a little bitter. I added a lump of sugar. "So do you know who you might ask to come JoJo?" Chiron asked. "Well obviously Poppy, and-" "Wait, me?" Poppy said shocked. "Of course you. Do you think I'd go on a quest without my awesome little sister?!" Poppy grinned "Thank you, thank you thank you!!!!!!" she cried excitedly and hugged me. I grinned and let her embrace me. "Who else?" Rachel asked. "I don't know. I have a few people in mind but I'll have to ask them first." Wow!! I was really leading a quest. What would happen? What was the 'Storm of Fire'? And would I be leading 7 people to sucess or death!!- Hope you liked!!!!!

Nothing objectionable, in my area, if its lost its forever gone as no one is probably going to turn it in to lost and found. I thought using a chewed mango pit was a bit offputting

It was fantastic. I loved it. But it was too short but defiantly not rushed. You could make it longer like seven pages instead of two and warrior cats dont know what angels are or what summer is and you could discrive the starclan cats more and the forest. Overall its a wonderful prolouge!

The moon dappled the peaceful forest. Suddenly, a pair of unusual violet eyes flashed, and a white cat padded out into the forest. Stars flitted around her golden paws. She sat down in a large patch of moonlight and curled her tail around her paws paitently. A amber-brown tabby tom emerged from the bushes and joined the she cat. He dipped his head to the she cat. "Greetings, Sundance." "Hello, Sparrowflight." Sundance replied. Soon, more starry cats crept from the the forest and into the clearing. Once everyone had gathered, Sundance stood up. Her fur shone silver in the moonshine. "Cats of Starclan!" She yowled. "We have gathered to decide the cat that shall star in the prophecy. And I believe we have made a choice." Padding to a pool full of starshine, she looked into it. The water rippled and the image of a kit became clear. Sundance smiled and recited the prophecy. "Summer will rise on Angel's wing and the forest will be stripped of dark..."
