Chapter 11 I stare in horror at the blood staining my shirt. Some soldiers run over. "We need to get her inside. The scent of blood will attract predators." A girl with messy, chin-length, black curls says. Her unusual gold eyes search my face. She looks about sixteen, my age. I had pictured our enemies as adults who want nothing but the rebels dead. Not other kids and teenagers like us. She grabs my arm and pulls me to my feet. I can stand, but things are getting blurry. "Are you okay to walk by yourself?" The girl asks. I nod. She looks...admiring? No, that's not it. Approving. "I'm Shyloh." She says. "Who are you?" "Terran." I say. Two more soldiers join our group, which is now my squad and the three soldiers. We walk together. I can distantly hear Kara weaving some tale about how rebels bombed our homes, we survived in the woods, so on...but that's all I hear before I pass out. I hear a distant beeping. I struggle to wake up. I'm in another hospital bed, with something tied tightly around my stomach and knotted at my back. After a long time of laying there, forcing my senses to start working, I come around. I feel shaky, but at least I'm not dead. I scramble out of bed and open the door in front of me. Stagger into the hall. I get a couple steps before I have to lean on a wall to stop my world from spinning. "Oh, you're up." Says a voice. "Your friends'll be happy. You feeling okay?" It's Shyloh. "Um, well, not good, but not awful, either." I reply. "Hm. Come on. I'll show you where you all are staying." She says, and walks off down the hall. I follow her, stumbling sometimes. So much had happened in the last few days...a few days...and just about everything I ever knew is gone. I think of Finnick's words on the hovercraft. "We're not going to die, Terran." For some reason, I'm starting to doubt that.
Whitenose looked up at Applestar as they ran through the forest. "Why didnt you say it was WindClan? They know." Applestar shook her head, her eyes sparkling sadly. "I couldnt. You know how hard it is to lose a clan leader? Well, getting into a fight after is worse. They dont need that." "True" said Windpaw, catching up with her mento and Whitenose. "Remember when Longstar died? How Brokenfrost, Sweetsong, and Larkpaw got into a fight with Kitepaw, Stormheart, Tidefire, and Longfur over just a peice of land of unmarkeed terretory? I rember how Sweetsong came back coverd in woumnds. No one else was hurt," Windpaw looked at Whitenose. "It wasnt very fun." Whitenose addmitted as they bounded into camp. Foxtail came out for gaurd duty as Whitenose slipped into his nest. Soon he was asleep. When he awoke the next morning, there were screeches outside the warriors den. Padding out from under neath the giant oak, he froze as he saw Brightnose, Featherfur, Rockpelt, and Windpaw fighting Kitesong, Yewclaw, Gorsefoot, and about 4 others. He saw Fawnfire and Applestar battling Blackear and Barkfang. Wait aminute, thats ShadowClan and WindClan! Whitenose bouned to the apperntances den and woke up Speedpaw. "Wha...?" "No time to explain go ask applestar if she wants you to get thunderclan or riverclan" Whitenose told him as more ShadowClan and WindClan cats streamed in SkyClans camp. Whitenose watched Speedpaw set off and sprang into battle.
