The thrill scream had just cut off the argument between Pebblepaw and her Clan. Breezeclaw immediately ran into the nursery. "The kits!" she exclaimed. Then she exited the nursery carrying a limp body. Earthkit - Breezeclaw's youngest kit. "You!" she yelled at Pebblepaw after she set her dead son down. "You let her go! She destroyed the future of the Clan!" Breezeclaw then huddled around her frightened looking other kits, Petalkit and Spiderkit.
The Clan stared at Earthkit. He had been so happy - so playful, and had showed high potential. But it looked like that was all at waste now.
"How do you know it was Daisy?" hissed Pebblepaw.
"Please!" yelled Breezeclaw right back at the apprentice. "Earthkit's covered in her stink!"
Crowstar took a step forward and gave Earthkit a sniff. "She's right. This was Daisy." she bowed her head in grief. "Pebblepaw...how could you..." she was cut off by a pitiful scream. This time, though, it was from the apprentices' den.
No one dared to move. Until, plucking up her courage, young Onepaw stepped into her den. She let out a gasp. In the den, cowering in the corner, was Whitepaw. However, dead in the middle of the den, was Flamepaw. Onepaw rushed over to Flamepaw - her best friend. "Flamepaw!" she gasped. "Speak to me, Flamepaw!" obviously, there was no answer. Flamepaw had joined StarClan.
There was weeping behind Onepaw, and she whipped round. There stood Silverwind, mother to Flamepaw, Whitepaw and Tanglepaw. She moved to press her nose to Flamepaw's fur.
"Good bye, my daughter." she whispered.
Onepaw had had enough she jumped on Daisy, who was still getting ready to kill Whitepaw, as well.
Suddenly pain shot through her spine. Daisy had got to her weak spot. Suddenly everything went black for Onepaw. It was over. Daisy had won. She had died with honor. She would now be led to StarClan by her best friend. Flamepaw.
Daisy ignored Whitepaw, then as he stared at the body of Onepaw. The one who had died to save him...wow, he thought. No one's ever risked their life for me before. Not ever mother. Daisy left without another trace.
Tanglepaw went to Crowstar's den the next day to see about training, after all the drama. No one had seen her since the death of Earthkit. When there was no answer, she entered. She gasped when she saw the most shocking sight. Crowstar - dead in a pool of blood. Tanglepaw suddenly realized it wasn't her own blood. But her murderer's. She'd put up a strong fight. But her enemy had obviously been stronger. And her enemy was still there. Sitting mockingly in the corner of Crowstar's den. Of course. This all piled up to one conclusion.
