Stormstars returned! Strong as ever and fully healed!
I walk calmly through the forest, my pads brushing lightly against the smooth leaves. Leafbare had recently came to an end and new leaf had already showed signs of its new life. I could hear birds singing in the trees, mice scuffling under the leaves, squirrels leaping through the trees-
Then i heard a "hiss" behind me.
I glanced back and saw four cats glaring at me, there fur bristling, and there claws unsheathered. Two were warriors, while the other two were apprentaces, i guessed they were mentors with there apprentaces.
I barley reacted, just lifted my paw and gave it a couple of licks. Showing no sign of a threat or even being threatened.
One of the mentors, stepped forward, it was a light brown she-cat with darker flecks and amber eyes, "state your name, tresspasser!" She ordered. The two apprentaces hissed once more, but the other mentor, much older and more experienced then the one that challenged me, only stared at me in suspicion.
I reconized the older mentor but i chose to stay silent, this was the first test to the clan, they needed to reconize me, on there own.
Then the older she-cat's eyes opened widley in surprise and she dropped her tail infront of the other mentor to block her from me.
"What are you doing?" The she-cat growled.
"This is no intuder, Pricklespots" the older mentor shot her a hard stair. Then she turned back to me, "I knew i reconized your scent but i didnt think it was possible!" Everyone staired in confusion as the older mentor announced, "Stormstar! Your alive!"
I touched noses with my old friend, "good to see you again to Skyheart."
Skyheart starred me down from head to paw "Your scars, your injuries, your youth, what happened? How did you get healed?" Skyheart asked.
"My history is a mystery and my past history" I answered.
"I dont understand! Whos Stormstar?" Pricklespots asked.
"Stormstar was the origional leader of Stormclan! It was named after her! She was the leader before Fernstar!" Skyheart answered happily.
I nodded, "I left before any of you were born" I explained.
"Why were you gona for so long?" one of the apprentaces asked, "And why return now?"
I took a deep breath, "I will share everything soon but first I must announce my presence to Fernstar!"
Pricklespots nodded, then turned to the apprentaces, "Nightpaw! Swallowpaw! Go back to camp and tell the clan!"
The apprentaces nodded and ran off into the undergrowth, shortly after i followed Skyheart and Pricklespots back to Stormclan camp.
Fernstar stood beside me on the highrock as she called the clan together. As soon as the clan had gathered she spoke loud and clear.
"Cats of Stormclan! Long ago our origonal leader left the clan and journeyed to the unknown. She had pronounced me new leader in her place. Many thought she was dead, many thought she would never return, but i always knew! Now Stormstar has returned! Her wounds and un-healedable scars healed, her youth returned, and her determination to make the clan rise once more, retored! Now I will step aside to let Stormstar speak!"
Fernstar dipped her head towards me, letting me know it was my turn.
"Greetings clanmates. Many of you do not remember me, but you will know that i am alive. Some of you are wondering why i pronounced Fernstar leader when I left instead of my past deputy Mistyflower. The REAL reason was because the leadership was only temporary. But that is the past and now I have returned to see my clan once more and i am astounded and furious to find what i see. StormClan has become abandon! My clanmates dont care about this old clan anymore! Nope! They've all retreated to MidnightClan! Dont think i dont notice! And Fernstars to nice to question any of them about there absences! All i have to say to that is...........you really let me down clan. Stormclan, the once great and powerful clan has become nothing but rouges! It brings me pain to even lay eyes on my old clan! Fernstar and I have talked this over and she agrees that its time i took back leadership! I will rebuild StormClan and re-enforce the rules once more! Those will chose not to follow will be exiled and shown no mercy! My rules may seem tough to you but i felt as if a sword was going through my back when i saw my abandon clan! From now on I, Stormstar, have returned to rebirth the clan that i let fall! Stormclan has a new era!"
It brings pain to me to see my clan so torn apart!
