Cherryflight was stretched out in the sun, her fur glimmering a brilliant flame color. Her eyes reflected the sun's light. She watched her three kits play. Sidekit wrestled Viperkit to the ground while Twilightkit grabbed Sidekits scruff and pushed her away. "Twilightkit be easy with your sister." Cherryflight mewed. "Okay Cherryflight!" Twilightkit chirped and let Sidekit go. Cherryflight felt a shadow flicker across the ground in front of her, and Robinflight pressed close to her,"Our kits are beautiful..." he purred. Suddenly Sidekits head shot up and her eyes were directed on something in the sky. Her dark blue eyes followed it and Viperkit stifled a laugh. "Youre weird, Sidekit." he giggled and Sidekit snapped out of her gaze and tackled him. Cherryflight got up and stretched, yawning. Her eyes flitted across the clearing where Tawnyleaf was showing the apprentices how to grab their opponent and flip them over. Rainstorm was with her. Tawnyleaf crouched down, her claws sheathed, and leapt at Rainstorm. He tried to sidestep but tripped and Tawnyleaf grabbed him. She locked her forepaws around his neck and kicked his belly with her hind paws. Then she dug her hind claws into the ground and flipped Rainstorm, turning him over so the soft side of his belly showed. "I wanna try, I wanna try!" the apprentices squealed and bounced around the two warriors. "Alright, alright..." Tawnyleaf settled them down. "Can we try?" Viperkit asked, his bright green eyes shining. "Yea! Can we? Please please?" Sidekit and Twiligjhtkit bounced around her paws. "Go ahead. But make sure you tell Tawnyleaf first. And don't let the apprentices play too rough with you!" she called as they ran away. "We won't!" Twilightkit called over his shoulder. Cherryflight shook her head, and Robinflights eyes were warm. "Cherryflight!" Cherryflight jerked her head to were the voice came from. Blondefeather padded over,"I need to speak with you." Cherryflight followed the LightningClan deputy outside of camp. "It's about your kits." the light golden tabby lifted her head. Cherryflight shifted,"My kits? What about them?" They will be apprenticed soon. In the meanwhile, you should really get back to your warrior duties. RavenClan are up to no good again, and we need all the cats we can get." Cherryflight nodded, holding back a sigh of relief. She turned to go when Blondefeather blocked her path,"And I've noticed two of your kits pelts look nothing like yours or Robinflights. And it rarely happens that a queen has no milk..." she mewed suspiciously. Cherryflight opened her mouth, ready to explain when Blondefeather cut her off,"Of course Viperkit has your colorings. I suppose that Sidekit and Twilightkit have Fairstep and Bramblefrosts coloring. Shadesong and Reefclaws too. And queen's not having milk isn't impossible, I suppose." Cherryflight felt guilty that Blondefeather thought they were her kits, but she didn't open her mouth. She knew better. "You may go back to camp, now." Blondefeather nodded and Cherryflight dashed back into camp.
"From this day forward, you shall be known as Viperpaw. Oneheart is a wise and powerful warrior, let her guide you." Dragonstars gaze reached over the three new apprentices, and their mentors, Oneheart, Reefclaw and Lionstorm. Cherryflight cheered,"Sidepaw, Twilightpaw, Viperpaw!" she was proud, and knew Moonshine would be proud too.
