I don't own Flight, only the characters in this book, and the plot. All credit goes to @-AmberKitti-. Thank you!
A low wail came from the nursery. King Carnelian's eyes popped open at the sound.
"Lapis!" He breathed, racing towards the nursery, where his wife and newborn children were staying.
Bursting in, his eyes widened at the sight. His kits, and Lapis, were covered in blood, and Raindrop, the guard, lay on the floor, dead. At first, he thought Lapis was as well, but her slowly twitching tail proved otherwise.
"What happened?" He yowled, as he raced towards them.
"R-Raindrop. H-he attacked us! Our kits..." Lapis was hardly able to get out the words.
"No..." Carnelian could hardly believe it.
"I couldn't kill him in time." Lapis murmured.
Just then, movement caught Long Carnelian's eye. One kit was alive! He rushed over, quickly recognizing the ginger tabby she cat to be Sunstone.
But upon closer inspection, King Carnelian and Queen Lapis realized something.
Their only surviving child would only ever have one wing.
So... Leave a review, but please don't hate on this story! Yes, Carnelian and Sunstone are gems.
And, even though Sunstone didn't have wings yet, Carnelian and Lapis could tell that Sunstone would only have one wing because some of her wing muscles were messed up.
