    Skywings story~ Chapter 3

    I saw a bushy red tail dissappear into some bushes, leaving a trail of blood behind it, I looked down, and at my feet, was my mother. She stared up at me, her pale green eyes strangely calm, and her breathing shallow. "Hello Skykit" she whispered, and tears welled up in my eyes "m-mommy?" I breathed "what happened?!" "Destiny happened..." "what? No!! This is not your destiny!" I ran and got Chamomile for strength, an Burdock root to prevent infection. I cleaned her wounds and chewed Chamomile and Burdock root into a poultice, and put it gently on her wounds. I then covered it with cobwebs, and gave her a poppyseed to help her relax. "Skykit, your going to be a fine young cat, your father would be proud of you, but Im afraid its too late for me" she mewed quietly "No...No..No.No!" "Skykit please go! The fox will be back soon!" "No! Im not leaving untill your strong enough to come too" "Skykit" she meowed gently, and I looked into her eyes, that were clouding over, and I wasnt able to look away. "My time is up... just remember... I will always... love you" she whispered, and she breathed her final breath. "Mom?!" I mewed desperatley, knowing she was gone. "Why couldnt it have been me?!" I wailed and buried my nose in my mothers soft, crimson fur, and I sat vigil for her. Sobbing, I eventually fell asleep... The next morning, I got up and picked flowers. I set them around her cold, lifeless body. I groomed her fur, cleaning any remaining blood off of her. I turned and ran away, not looking back, tears stning my eyes.
