    "Why did you have to die?" I ask, my voice strained. A tear splashes down onto her grave, and my eyes blaze with fury. "WHY DID YOU KILL YOURSELF JUST BECAUSE OF HIM??? HUH???? WHY??" I yowl before running off.

    Dark spots grow and life is pain. The dark spots morph into cyclops then hurt all. They destroy almost all. They the stomp away.

    She pads up to Ravenwing and bows her head sadly. "Now we need a new medicine cat," she murmurs. She licks Ravenwing's head and mourns her. Finally, she digs a hole, lines the bottom with flowers and soft leaves, and puts Ravenwing in it. She puts a strand of her fur in the grave as a parting gift. She fills the hole with dirt once her daughter was in it. She mourned for several more moments, then got up and padded back to camp.
