    Eaglestar's wish Chapter 1

    Eagleheart was padding down the slope. She was a loner now, she belonged to no Clan now. She yowled in frustration. " StarClan cursed AmberClan! I will never be exiled again!" She unfolded her wings and took off into the air. She was flying for a little while when she spotted something that looked like prey. She swooped down, claws extended. Then she realized it was a brown-pelted cat. Then she looked more closely at the cat. It's eyes had a crazed look and it was foaming at the mouth. She stopped diving. Then the cat jumped at her, teeth bared. She dodged the bite that was aimed at her. "Okay, you can stop attacking me now?" But the cat didn't seem to hear her and jumped at her again. This time she caught him by the scruff of his neck with one of her paws. She flew higher. Once she was high enough she dropped the cat. It landed with a dull thud on the ground below her. She dove towards him. Good,she thought with a sneer on her face. He's just knocked out. If he survives this disease, I may talk to him. She looked at his shoulder. It was at an odd angle. It's dislocated. She thought. Several hours later, the cat woke up. His eyes were no longer crazed, and he no longer had foam at the mouth. He lifted his head, a little dazed. " What happened?" He tried to get up, but fell to the ground, howling in pain. He started panting in fear. "Am I going to die?" He asked in fear. Eagleheart stifled a mrrow of laughter. " No silly! You just have a dislocated shoulder. I'll put it back so you can walk again. But this might hurt." She fetched a stick and placed it beside him. He took it in his mouth. Then she jumped on his shoulder, putting it back in place. He yowled in pain." Hey! Be careful!" Eagleheart looked at him with amusement. " Then stop being such a mouse-brain! That's what a medicine cat is for, isn't it?" She said. " What is your name anyway?" She heard him mutter something to himself. " It's the Doctor." She turned away from him. " Okay, Doctor, do you feel okay?" He got up, wincing. " It's fine. Just a little sore." Then he padded off with Eagleheart, chatting the night away.
