It had been a moon since Doestar died, Echosky was heartbroken.Her mother had gone to the moonstone and never came back. She had stopped being mates with Shadowstar, not that she was ever his mate. Echosky had two kits, Nightkit and Foxkit. She remembered what had happened the night they were born. She had walked up to Shadowstar "Thanks to you Foxkit is sick!" she had hissed. "I need to keep nightkit alive," she said, looking at her living kit. Barley a moon had passed and Foxkit died. Nightkit had lived to be six months old and become an apprentice. Nightkit, now Nightpaw, had grown stronger that everyone in the clan. Goldenlilly, Skystar and Willowshine's kit, had become a warrior and had two kits, Moonkit, a pretty blue and white she-cat, and Mudkit, a pretty brown tabby she-cat. Goldenlily had given birth away from camp. On the way back from camp she had fallen in the river and Mudkit had drowned. Moonkit survived and grew up to be Moonpaw. Moonpaw’s mother had died on patrol not long after she had been apprenticed. Moonpaw and Nightpaw had seemed to like each other. The two were sitting together in the shade while Echosky was watching she looked over at Appleblossom, *How could another cat fall for Shadowstar?* she thought. The she-cat had become expecting with Shadowstar's kits, and she wasn't happy. Echosky had told Shadowstar she was staying a queen to help care of the kits, but she was still going to hunt for the clan. Deciding to go for a walk she padded through the snow, only to see Mistshadow and Rivertail playing on the ice. She was surprised to see an old cat like Rivertail playing. She padded carefully across the ice to them. She felt bad for Mistshadow, after she had her kits Saltkit and Pepperkit she lost sparrowstrike, her mate. Mistshadow was smiling and playing but she landed to hard on the ice and a crack started to form. Her smiled quickly faded "MISTSHADOW!" Echosky called as the ice broke under her, Echosky bounded across the ice to her friend. She tried to pulling her out only to slip and fall into the ice as well, Mistshadow pulled herself out of the freezing water and reached for Echosky as well, but after pulling the she-cat out the fragile ice broke again. Mistshadow fell deeper into the freezing water. "No!!" Echosky wailed backing off the ice. She spotted Rivertail trying to pull himself out of the water. Echosky ran along the shore to reach Rivertail and she pulled him out and onto the snow. She laid next to him "It’s going to be okay Rivertail" she said. Trying to make herself believe it, but his fur starting getting colder and colder and his breaths uneven and soon he was gone.
Moonpaw ran to the Riverclan border. She had made a friend there her name was Berrypaw, and she was fun to play with. She saw Berrypaw come into sight. She purred from joy, but then realized something was wrong. Berrypaw looked upset. "What happened?" moonpaw asked. Berrypaw looked up at her "My mentor found out I was seeing you" she started "What!?" Moonpaw stopped her "How?!" Berrypaw shrunk down "She saw me sneak off and go to you, she told me to stop seeing you. I'm sorry but I can't play with you anymore" Berrypaw sighed "See you at the next gathering?" she asked "Y-yeah," Moonpaw felt empty inside, Nightpaw was "Too cool" for Moonpaw to play with her like apprentices do, and Saltkit and Pepperkit are to young to play with. She slowly padded back to camp. Moonpaw wandered into the apprentice den and laid down in her nest. Later Treebark had walked in "What's wrong Moonpaw?" she asked her, the medicine cats face twisted with worry, "Are you sick? Did you sick from Saltkit? He has whitecough" She sighed. "No" Moonpaw replied "Just tired." Treebark nodded and left he den. Moonpaw laid her head down and fell asleep. That night she dreamed of a battle. She saw Shadowstars body laying on the ground next to Fernstar, who was the riverclan leader, who was also dead.
