A bright light encases a tree as a dark grey femme pads out of it. She pads towards the two cats and tells them, "I'm sorry to say, but rough times are ahead. Things will become troubled, and too soon. I have a prophecy to take back to Dragonstar, Cloudbeauty, and Spiritfern. Talk it over."<br>"A storm of mud will rise<br>To defeat a shining sparkle<br>The kiss of shadows becomes a kiss of death<br>But the bark of a willow will stop the fight<br>with a threat of life or death<br>The shadow, kissed by the chance to live<br>grasps it in his claws.<br>While the dragon is cured,<br>the herbs will turn<br>And befuddle the minds of the young.<br>With the help of a spirit<br>and the shining sparkle<br>to teach the young the faults.<br>But lay the shadow to sleep<br>Guarded so he cannot turn back<br>The kiss will know hope isn't lost.<br>The forest of darkness<br>Will say they win<br>But they will be mistaken<br>for a willow at dusk<br>Will know to end it all<br>While the shining sparkle fights death's door"<br>"Good luck," Myntlight says softly, fading into the light. &starf &star Myntlight &star &starf
