Chapter 2-meeting the clan|Spiritpaw walks into the camp. He looks around at all the cats as roaringstar jumps up onto the highrock "Everyone who is old enough to catch their own prey may come and listen" (or something like that.) Roaringstar meowed. "We have a new apprentice. His name is spiritpaw. I found him just outside camp wandering around." She meowed. Spiritpaw actually walked toward the highrock. Roaringstar asked him "Would you like to come up?" He accepted and he jumped up onto the highrock. "Meet, spiritpaw." Roaringstar meowed. Suddenly spiritpaw began thinking about his ability. 'Not now, plz not now!' He thought. But before he knew it, he was a spirit bear child. Then turned back. The crowd gasped and backed up. "Im sorry." Spiritpaw mewed sorry for himself. His secret was already revealed. He felt ashamed as he jumped down from the highrock and towards the apprentice den. He found an empty place to lie down. He sighed. "I bet this clan doesnt like me either. Only roaringstar." He went outside almost certain he would leave camp so soon. But changed his mind. 'This could be my only chance. This could be a first but last situation.' He thought. But he kept the idea at the back of his mind, like a final desision.|chapter 3 will be in result 4
