Starlight, Starbright

In a land far, far away, there's a world that you could never have imagined. This place has no name. But it is home to numerous cats. Everything about this world is mysterious from it's blossoming, bright springs, lush, emerald summers, colorful, fiery autumns, and white, sparkling winters. In this story we trace the steps of a young heroine. From the moment she realizes what life is really about to the very second she dies. A tale of friendships and sorrows, heartbreaks and heroes, a broken connection between two sisters, a murder mystery, and a conclusion no one suspected...


25. Hiding Away


"No, Fire. Concentrate." Father sighed and shook his head.

We were at the Training Yard.

I looked around. No one was watching.

I took a deep breath.

"Okay, can you show me one more time?" I muttered.

This was the fifth time he had shown me this move.

I usually had the techniques down by now.

"Okay, Fire. Watch."

Father backed up and demonstrated the complicated flip.

I tried and immediately fell flat on my face. Embarrassment made my fur feel hot. A few giggles floated around the yard.

I got up, shaking. Shontel's comment from yesterday still rang in my ears.

"Don't get too big a head, Fire. We all know what you're up to."

I shook my head to clear those thoughts and got up. Father regarded me gravely. "Maybe you'd be best off with a friend." He said.

I nodded halfheartedly.

Father left to assist someone else and I looked around.

Everyone was busy with somebody other.

A tap on my shoulder made me jump. I spun around.

Oliver watched me with a glint in his eyes. "Are you okay? You don't seem like yourself lately." He asked.

I looked up. "Yeah. I'm fine. Just a little stressed." I replied.

"Here. You wanna practice with me?"


Oliver took a step back.

I nodded and he pounced. I counter-stepped and blocked.

Oliver managed to get underneath me and the next thing I knew, I was on my back, defeated.

He stepped off me and I got up.

I opened my mouth to say something, but we were interrupted.

By a scream.
