    Featherpaw

    As Featherkit stumbled through the cold, her mother came to her. "Featherkit, I always loved you. Please remember that wherever you go." Then, with those last words, Featherkits mom died. Featherkit gasped and ran to her mother. "No. No, mom, say youre fine! Please! Get up mommy! I cant let you die!" Featherkit spoke in a whisper. "Now im all alone." She cried for hours at that spot. Tears froze on her fur as Featherkit walked away. Finally, she could take it no longer. She threw herself into a ball and sat in the snow. When she was about to die from the cold, her mother came to her. "Mommy? I thought you died!" "Featherkit. I would always be there for you. But now, you come with me. I name you Featherpaw. Now you can join me in Starclan." So the two went and never left each other again.
