"Jaypaw! Jaypaw! Jaypaw!" Bravepaw's high-pitched meows made Jaypaw jumped up from her sleep. "What is it?" She asked, sleepily. "You are on a dawn patrol with me!" Bravepaw told her. 'A dawn patrol?! Now? I need to tell Dovestar about my dream!' Jaypaw thought in frustration but didn't show it by padding outside with Bravepaw after her. Redpool, Mistystream, and Dapplefang gathered around at the edge of the camp, waiting for the two apprentices to join them. Jaypaw then spotted Goldenkit next to Dovestar, his vioce too low for the tortoiseshell apprentice to hear. Dovestar nodded her head as Goldenkit squealed in excitement and ran over to his mother inside the nursery. By the time Jaypaw and Bravepaw reached the patrol, Dapplefang lifted her tail and the patrol raced off too quick for Jaypaw to catch up. Dapplefang then halted. Mistystream snorted. "Well?!" She snarled. "Are we going to continue our patrol?" Dapplefang shook her head. To Jaypaw's surprise, Mistystream didn't say anything else. Dapplefang then scented the air. "Kittypets..." she whispered. Jaypaw opened her mouth and sniff the air. Dapplefang was right, there was a scent that doesn't belong to any clans and also doen't smell like any kind of forest scent. Just a cat scent mixed with twoleg scent. Dapplefang crouched down and silently moved toward a large bush where she can see the kittypet. Redpool did the same thing, so did Jaypaw. When Jaypaw peered out from the bush, she sees a light brown tabby figure bouncing around happily with two smaller figures behind it. Jaypaw's amber eyes gazed on the tabby figure instead on the two small ones and realized it was a she-cat with a blue neck and on the blue neck has a golden shiny twoleg thing with wierd scribbles on it. "What is a kittypet doing on our territory?" Redpool asked Dapplefang. "I don't know but we should do something about it before she steals our prey." The deputy suggested. Redpool nodded in agreement and he, Dapplefang, and Jaypaw slid backwards to sit up tall next to Mistystream and Bravepaw. "We have a kittypet with two kits on our territory." Dapplefang reported. "We need to chase them off." Redpool meowed as Bravepaw jumped up in glee. "We'll show them!" She snarled before racing through the bushes to face the kittypets. "Bravepaw wait!" Dapplefang called to her and raced off behind her. Jaypaw and Redpool followed, with Mistystream behind them. Bravepaw and Dapplefang circled around the kittypet and the kits so they couldn't escape. Jaypaw joined them, along with Redpool and Mistystream. "L-leave us alone!" The kittypet snapped, unsheathing her claws. "We aren't going to hurt you." Dapplefang meowed but the kittypet ignored her. "So it is true; there are cats living in the wild." The kittypet growled as Mistystream gave a low growl. "You heard about us?" She asked. "Acourse I did, mouse-brain!" The kittypet meowed. "The stories were spread to every cat who lives with their housefolk. Now, if you excuse me, I will go and catch a mouse." She padded through the circle, shoving Mistystream out of the way. Dapplefang stood in front of her. "I'm sorry but you can't hunt in this part of our territory." She meowed. "Why can't I? There is enough prey to go around." The kittypet murmured. "You don't understand." Dapplefang meowed. "You cross our border, so you have to leave." The kittypet laughed. "Oh, the border! I forgot! But wait! I already crossed it. So what will you do now?!" The kittypet snarled. END OF 23!
