“Lilybreeze” I looked around and felt comfort, I was having a dream from Starclan, “yes” I replied, It didn’t take long to see all of what I had gone through, even memories I hardily remembered shone clearly.
First I remembered Daisy, my mother, telling me to close my eyes when I heard or smelled a new cat becuase my eyes were different,and I remembered smelling the fear on her when we were caught trespassing in a clans territory. I was only 2 moons old but it didn’t seem that long ago.
I was lucky, It was a mid aged she-cat, but something about how she acted, My mom explained that she wanted The she-cat to take her to her ‘Clan’ And rise me, but all my mom wanted was to keep my name,Lily, When I was brought back to the camp I was rejected at first, but I had gained a soft spot in the she-cat’s heart, and she just so happened to be Stormstar, leader of Stormclan.
She got Bulefire to take me in with her other kit, Foxkit. I was like a sister to Foxkit and we were close, There weren’t enough mentors so we even had to share Mentors with Wavestorm, Stormstar’s sister. I was a great apprentice, I learned very quickly and became a great hunter and good fighter, using my lithe from to climb and ambush from above. But I did not want to be a warrior, I didn’t care about having kits, a mate, or fighting.
I wanted to help sick cats, so I asked Stormstar. She talked with me and let me become a Medicine cat apprentice. I learned very quickly and gathered all the skills from Rainfire, my mentor. After having perfected my knowledge of herb I trained a bit more by myself, becoming even better fighter. Rainfire did not help much after I had learned everything from her and so I was the one treating sick patients.
During a greencough epidemic I had to take care of twenty cats at a time, Fernpaw became a temporary apprentice and helped me, although I was old enough to be a warrior I was still an apprentice. She was in love with a young tom slightly younger then herself, But he liked her too, He was stubborn only taking orders from her so she was a big help. He died from two-leg poison. I also remember finally getting my full Med. Cat name. The heart break of Wavestorm’s death, And the losing of Stormstar as she had became a close friend.
“Why am I here?” I asked out. Stormstar and Wavestorm came up to me. “Stormstar! Wavestorm!” I said running up to the sisters. “Lilybreeze” they said in unison. Stormstar approached first, “Lilybreeze, we have an omen for ‘You” Wavestorm came up next to her, “And you must Make you apprentice a full medicine cat.” “Ok” Stormstar talked first “A Breeze carried a lily here, but as the flower grows big and strong and it’s beauty is something to behold, It will wilt away soon with it ground to nourish it” “but what does-” She cut me short. Wavestorm stepped up “Your Apprentice is strong and true, but life will be hard for her as her destiny is challenged, but like a thorn she will make it”
Wavestorm and Stormstar faded away and left me staring at darkness, I got up and prodded Greenpaw’s side “Greenpaw, Greenpaw get up” she groaned then pulled her self up, “is anyone sick?” she asked “no” I said “come on” I stood and walked out of the back of our den into the night, it was cool and fresh, “follow me” I said looking back onto Greenpaw, who was following quickly.
By the time we got to the Moonpool, the Moon was above the pool casting an eerie glow, I looked over a Greenpaw with me different eyes, she stopped playing with a blade of grass and grew still. “Greenpaw?” “yes” “are you ready to receive your full Med. cat name” “yes!” “Do you promise to serve your clan to the fullest and treat them with respect and risk your life just to save their’s?” “I do” “then from this moment on you will be known as Greenpetal” She looked up speechless, for once in her life.” I thought above telling her about the prophesy but then a remembered Wavestorm said it was for me “I will continued to work beside you for I am still young and strong”
“A Breeze carried a lily here, but as the flower grows big and strong and it’s beauty is something to behold, It will wilt away soon with it ground to nourish it”
