    ~The Outcasts~ (Chapter Two: Banned)

    Part One *** [~•~] Sparrow's POV [~•~] "For this treason the punishment is death," Fox announced. Spots' eyes widened. "Wh-what?! I did no such thing!" He yelped. Unconsiously, I ubseathed my claws. I glanced over to see Conrad's stormy eyes narrowed with rage. "No!" Conrad suddenly cried out. "Spots wouldn't ever do some thing like that, you're a liar!" He shouted at Fox. Fox shot Conrad an amused look that also hinted for him to shut up. "Silence. You, a simple kit, wouldn't understand these matters." "No I do understand!" Conrad blurted out. "I know that you're blaming him for something he didn't do! Now let him go you.... you piece of fox-dung!" Honestly, by this time I was quite proud of Conrad. Maybe he would follow in my footsteps after all. Spots just stared vacantly at the ground. Fox was starting to get angry. "Shut up," he hissed. "One more word from you and you won't be fed for a week." "I bet it was you who killed them!" Conrad hissed. I could tell why he was so upset. Spots was a great cat and had always been always nice to us. And now he was being accused for a crime we know he never would have committed. But then Conrad did something I never would have expected. He hurled himself at Fox yelling and landed on his back by his head. Then he raked his tiny claws over his face— and that's when Rose whimpered and turned away. Blood was pouring down Fox's face and the sorry excuse for a cat was likely blinded in one eye. Conrad dropped down and stared at the blood on his paws paley then backed away. Fox screeched out furiously, his fur all bristled. "Besides your parents, none of you brats have brought anything but trouble! Spots will be executed and these three—" He gestured to me Rose and Conrad. "—Will be exiled for all time!" The medicine cat rushed up beside him. "But you can't... she said fearfully. "They're special, very powerful, maybe the key to our answer—" "Enough of your blabbering about hope, old fool! There is none unless the evil has been removed from out camp!" Fox nearly svreamed. "Now go!" He shouted at us. "I... I..." Conrad squeeked. He backed out then ran. I was hot with rage. Conrad ruined everything for everyone! If he hadn't interfered, Spots might have stood a chance. He wouldn't have gotten all three of us banned. If he had just shut his yap hole and contained his anger... I didn't even try to follow him. I stormed off a seprate way. Rose caught up to me, trying to stifle her sobbing. "Where will we go now?" My teeth were gritted and my tone gave away my seething, but I managed to spit the words out. "Come on. It's time you meet Dust."
