Bluepaw bounced around his mentor's paws, bugging him with questions such as,
"Tell me about being a warrior!" and" Will I become leader someday?"
Puzzlefur sighed with exaustion as they eventually got back to RiverClan camp. It had seemed like moons since they had left it that sunrise.
"Go rest now, Bluepaw," The slightly annoyed warrior mewed,"Battle training later,"
Bluepaw gave a little cheer and bounded off to the apprentice's den. Puzzlefur sat down and began to wash his pelt. He was rudely interrupted as the smell of blood entered the camp, as well as Angelwing's hunting patrol.
Scanning the patrol, he noticed that the patrol was unharmed. Then he noticed Fearfur and Greenfur dragging something. Gasps rose among the cats.
"Sharptail is dead!" yowled Angelwing. Willowshine hurried up to the patrol, giving them all a few poppy seeds for shock. Mistystar left her den and padded into the clearing.
"What happened?" she asked Angelwing. Angelwing was shaking, so Greenfur answered for her.
"W..We were hunting near the ThunderClan border, and his body was jus lying there. There was a lot of blood. And old cat scent. Too old to tell whose it was. Sharptail was killed by another cat!"
By now the cats in the clearing were muttering to each other. Then, Foxfur's yowl rang above the rest.
"ThunderClan killed Sharptail! Now they must pay!"
More yowls of agreement rose up, until Mistystar silenced the clan with a flick of her tail.
"We attack ThunderClan tonight!"
Puzzlefur watched Angelwing as she slunk off into the warriors den. Unease pulsing through her.
What could possibly be wrong?
