    Hawkkit's Destiny~Chapter 2

    Lakefish was buried by the pond in the east side of StoneClan territory. Everything she gave to her clan was missing: her love, her kindness, her laughter. Hawkkit grew quickly. From a tiny, wet, mewling newborn to a strong, healthy young tomkit. His fur was his father's brown-orange color, but whenever he looked at Starryfur, she could see his eyes were the same beautiful azure as her sisters' once were. Starryfur did not understand Lakefish's logic on only one situation concerning Hawkkit: how she said that Starryfur should be the one to care for him. What? Starryfur was a medicine cat. Not allowed to have kits or even adopt them. So Starryfur had given Hawkkit over to the care of Silkwing, a kindly queen with 11 kits, who was glad to wet nurse a 12th. Hawkkit was the biggest and oldest of her kits, and Starryfur could just imagine them playing clan inside the nursery. Hawkkit would be the leader, Goldenkit the deputy, Sparklekit the medicine cat. They never grew tired of playing clan. Starryfur knew this because she dropped in to visit three times per day. Even though she couldn't adopt Hawkkit, she wanted to keep Lakefish's spirit happy as a second mother, maybe, to Hawkkit. Right now she was peacefully sorting through herbs. "Dock, yarrow, marigold, lambs quarters, oak leaves, honey, pine, spicebush, catmint, coltsfoot, poppy..." she recited, making sure each medicinal plant was in stock. "Hello!" A cheerful voice mewed. Hawkkit had bounded in, his blue eyes excited. "Silkwing said we could visit Amberlight." Amberlight had fallen into depression after Lakefish died. He slept in the cold corner of the warriors den and barely ate. The only time he seemed happy was with his Hawkkit. "Okay, Hawkkit. I'll drop you off with Amberlight and i'm going to go collect herbs." Starryfur stood up. They walked together across camp. Starryfur felt a twang in her heart as she realized she would never feel the proud feeling of a parent, of the clan's future walking beside you. But she brushed the feeling away. She loved being a medicine cat, she knew, and she was lucky to have the job. They soon found Amberlight near the freshkill. He was thin from grief and barely any food, but still handsome. Starryfur blushed. Why? She told herself. Stop reacting. You are a medicine cat!! She smoothed her fur and dropped Hawkkit off, going to the herb gathering trail. Did she possibly have feelings for her sister's former mate?

    I Also Recommend:

    This is a real page turner. A lot of mystery

    This is the third novel for V. W. Willis and the best so far. I have read all of her novels and would recommend these to anyone who enjoys a good mystery. She writes a lot like some of the older authors from the early 1900's
