15. Camp Meeting
"All cars old enough to hunt gather before me for a camp meeting!" Hawkstar yowled. What was this about? I scrambled from the apprentices den, and sat by Tigerkit and Leafkit. "Today, two new apprentices are joining the apprentice den. Tigerkit and Leafkit, come before me." I nudged Tigerkit, who stared in shock. "Go up there, furball!" Leafkit tingled with anticipation. "Tigerkit, will you serve your Clans for the better?" "I will." Tigerkit meowed. "Then, I call upon the warriors of StarClan to look down upon these kits. I name you Tigerpaw! Your mentor will be... Thornfur. Please give your strength and wits to Tigerpaw. Leafkit, I name you Leafpaw! Your mentor will be Oceanwind. Oceanwind, please give Leafpaw your knowledge and quick feet to Leafpaw." "Tigerpaw! Leafpaw!" the Clan chanted. I suddenly realized that Tigerpaw and Leafpaw were older than me. What? "I'm an apprentice!" Tigerpaw bowled me over. "Hey!" I scrambled up, laughing. Tigerpaw gave a mrrow of amusement. I smiled at him. 'Finally!' I thought, 'We are friends again!'
