Chapter 1: A Rescue.

Most of the towns standing on our seacoast have suffered a radical
change in the course of the last century. Railways, and the fashion of
summer holiday making, have transformed them altogether, and great
towns have sprung up where fishing villages once stood. There are a few
places, however, which seem to have been passed by, by the crowd. The
number yearly becomes smaller, as the iron roads throw out fresh
branches. With the advent of these comes the speculative builder. Rows
of terraces and shops are run up, promenades are made, bathing machines
and brass bands become familiar objects, and in a few years the
original character of the place altogether disappears.

Sidmouth, for a long time, was passed by, by the world of holiday
makers. East and west of her, great changes took place, and many far
smaller villages became fashionable seaside watering places. The
railway, which passed by some twelve miles away, carried its tens of
thousands westward, but left few of them for Sidmouth, and anyone who
visited the pretty little place, fifteen years back, would have seen it
almost as it stood when our story opens a century ago.

    "Bye Shadow.

    "Bye Shadow. I hope you understood what we told ypu." Mousetalon then turned to Cougarpounce, a wooden object with intricate designs in his paws. "Oh here. I wanted to give you this. It's a talisman. It's supposed to ward off evil. I made it after I left my original one in magicclan last result. It was for Calicopaw. It has been in my family for generations, but how it was obtained I do not know. But just remember what I said before. We all will fight against the darkness one day, and this talisman proves this point. But if you need me for anything, just let me know." With that, he padded away into the forest, shapeshifting into a golden eagle and taking off into the sky afterwards.

    She moves closer. Shadowstar i know what being alone feels like. I wont lie when i say that for a long time the evil within was dead. All my old friends had left me. My mate of eight months left me. All i had left was Karma. But i realized that wolfclan was what i needed to get a fresh start. I think you are doing great considering your lack of experience. You were meant to do this. That is why i will fight with you until the end of starclan.

    I made my way through the herbs and found a open meadow in the forest. I sigh and sit down, glancing up at the full moon. I peered at my neklace, the one nobody has ever noticed. Skyflower had bestowed this very necklace to me. I swear I could feel her prescence in this very necklace. Skyflower had been my great grandma. She had told me... this necklace was special. I examined it. It was the shape of a wolf- dog, and there was a small sapphire dot for its eye. I sighed. It felt a bit refreshing to get away from the clan. I hid my necklace and decided to hunt a bit. I caught a vole, chaffinches, and a mouse. A bit plentiful for leaf fall. I heaved the freshkill on my back and padded back.

    Shadowstar}•{ "Yes Moonscar, I am built on loyalty and trust. But that's not the only traits I need. Most my life I was not a clan cat. I was dependant on myself, never having to converse with other cats, comfort other cats, know who I can trust or who will stay by my side. I never had to help other cats, though in this time I do so to my best ability. And then there are those who can do anything they put their mind to... and they can be of help, they know the right words to use, they're appreciated for being great cats. Like Wolfstar and Goldthunder.... I have never been a leader to anyone before. I have no experience." He paused and pawed at the feather then turned to Moonscar. "My whole life I have lived in a shadow of the past. I don't know how I can leave it behind. And I fear the future for me... is dwelling in darkness."
