The dome shaped structure of trees was quiet outside, but inside was a different story."Ruby Feather, were ARE you?"called a three legged calico."coming,Star!"answered a skinny Bombay. she came running to the calico."my name is Lithium!"the calico laid down firmly.she turned her head left and right."where's Raveneye?"she asked."i think he went hunting."Rubyfeather mewed."figures."lithium hissed."he's always hunting when i need him."
"someone call me?"asked a small white tabby as he poked his head into the dome.he was proudly carrying a large rat until he spoke."that things huge, Raveneye!"Rubyfeather meowed."i know, isn't it?took me all morning sunhigh to catch!"he bragged.
lithium came up to him face to face."your late."she growled."i know."he mewed, his ears down."late for what?"Rubyfeather asked."tonight is FullMoon.and we need to prepare."the Calico told the two."why, star? are we doing something different tonight?" the Bombay asked."Lithium!"she growled back in correction."and yes.last FullMoon i found a large group of cats from other clans underneath Four Large Trees.I think we should go and join them this time."she explained with a slight hiss."oh, OK star."the Bombay mewed happily, almost in a teasing way."Lithium!"the Calico hissed correcting her again."are you EVER going to stop calling her star, Rubyfeather?"Raveneye asked."i don't know."she admitted.
That night they set out for the trees."yuck, water!"Raveneye hissed as they reached a wide stream."we have to cross, Raveneye."Lithium meowed to him."just jump and you wont get wet."she explained. they all jumped over the stream and continued onward.
Rubyfeather lifted her nose and sniffed as they neared the trees. "i can smell cats! "she purred."we all can, Rubyfeather."Raveneye half purred half growled.and orange tom was the first to detect them.he came over to them, his green eyes sparkling in the moonlight."hello."Lithium greeted him as she sat down, about five tail lengths away from the group of cats under the trees."hello."he greeted back, siting down."pardon me for asking, but, who are you?"he asked, showing no threats."you don't have a familiar clan scent on you."
"my name is lithium."Lithium mewed to the tom.she looked over to the others and nodded."I'm Rubyfeather. and this is Raven eyes."the Bombay purred sweetly.the toms eyes opened wide to the names."what clan are you?"he asked curiously."Lost Clan."Lithium meowed without hesitation."OK.I'm Firestar,leader of thunderclan."the tom meowed."are there any others in your clan?"he asked worriedly."no. it's just us."Lithium answered again without hesitation."i see."Firestar mewed."it's just your scents are very similar to a kit we found as a newborn here at FourTrees."he explained."not to be rude or anything, but who is the leader?"he asked unsure of who would answer."i am."Lithium mewed without feeling."OK. now that that's cleared up,your all welcome to join us."he invited.Rubyfeather and Raveneye ran in to meet the other cats, but Lithium staid."Lithstar, was it?"he asked."it's just Lithium."she explained.his eyes widened."would you come with me and meet the other clan leaders?"he offered."sure."she purred.
Firestar brought Lithium up to the top of a cliff like rock. at the top was a white tom with jet black paws, a brown tom, and a leopard colored she cat."Everyone, it seems there is another clan among us."he told them as Lithium came up to the top, huffing and puffing."who are you? and what is this other clan Firestar is talking about?"asked the she cat."i am Lithium.the clan is Lost Clan.i am the leader."she answered, still trying to catch her breathe.all of the cat's eyes widened with surprise."what?"she asked as confused as ever."your name...it's a kittypet name!"the white tom with black paws exclaimed."well of course it is!i used to be a kittypet.i liked the name so i kept it."she growled.they all looked at each other."so, in other words, your like me? once a kittypet?"asked Firestar."i guess."she mewed unsure of herself.
Down below, Rubyfeather and Raveneye had managed to get to know every cat that was there.they were just laying down with a bunch of others as they watched Leafpool, the Thunder Clan medicine cat, teach young apprentices how to use different herbs and weeds to heal themselves when they were far from camp. "i wish WE had a medicine cat."Raven eye grumbled."well we don't, now be quiet."Rubyfeather hissed at him.she was very interested and he was bored out of his wits.
