Hollyfang walked through the forest searching for herbs when she scented Thunderclan on her territory."Who is here?" She yowled standing in place. "Its Icestar!" The voice responded and the medicine cat's heart sank in glee as she padded towards the voice into an open clearing. "Hello Hollyfang. How is it in Shadowclan now?" Icestar said as he padded over to her and nuzzled her. "G-g-good." She said blushing nervously. "Well Thunderclan is doing good too if you want to ask." Icestar said as he sat down beside her. "WHOS THERE!?" The unmistakeable voice of Hollowstar sounded in the clearing "GET OUT YOU MOUSEBRAIN OR ILL MAKE YOU!!" Hollowstar yowled angrily and the brown she cat bursted through the ferns. "Mother get out of here!" Hollyfang yowled angrily and clawed Hollowstars snout. "I have to go Hollyfang my clan needs me..." Icestar said before touching noses with her and running out to thunderclan "Hollyfang youre a medicine cat now you know you cant have a mate!" Hollowstar said in anger as she grabbed Holly by the scruff and dragged her back to the stinky camp. Hollyfang curled up in her den and took a sun high nap. Hollyfang awoke at the sound of claws across her roof of her den and went outside to see what it was. It was already night and she saw it was Icestar and she lept up onto the roof. "Come." He said and led her to the ash tree. He curled under it yawned and went to sleep. Hollyfang curled up next to him and went to sleep too. She awoke in the morning to a pain in her stomach and looked at it. It was rounded showing she was going to have kits. "OH FOXDUNG!" She shouted knowing her mother would not approve of this. She prodded Icestar awake and asked if she could join thunderclan "Well of course!" He said. She and Ice star padded to thunderclan territory and he lept unto the highrock "All cats who are old enough to catch thier own prey join beneath the highrock." He bellowed in a soft tone. "My mate Hollyfang has made a sacrifice to come to thunderclan." He said and hollyfang lept up beside him. "Yes for I am Hollyfang and I was former of shadowclan but came to be of thunderclan to be with Icestar. I have made a great sacrifice to do this." She said and lept off her stomach hitting the ground. She winced in pain. (A moon later...) "Gahh!" Hollyfang said and gritted her teeth in pain. "Fireclaw go get a stick!" Shatteredfire said to her brother. Fireclaw came back instantly and placed the stick inbetween holly's teeth and the next thing she knew there was mewling sounds coming from her belly. She looked down and saw a black kit, white kit, and a gray kit. "Awww ill name the black one nightkit, the white one clearkit, and the gray one dustkit." She said as the kits suckled happily. She lay in the nursery when goldenberry said "Nice looking, healthy kits. Mine are daykit and greenkit." She said pointing to a silvery she kit and a orange tabby tom. Moons went by as clearkit, nightkit and dustkit grew into dustpaw, nightpaw and clearpaw. "Im going hunting with ashclaw today mom!" Nightpaw said as she padded out of camp with the speckled white and gray warrior. Hollyfang was proud and so were her kits. Moons later nightpaw, clearpaw and dustpaw became warriors. Nightheart, clearclaw and dustleaf. Hollyfang was the medicine cat once again when Ice star lost his lives to falling from a gorge into the rushing water and the whole family greived. Then blueheart became bluestar and nightheart was his deputy. The end. -Fire eyes116
