I'm sorry I have not update in laterally forever, but I have other things on my mind. I promise I will try to update allot sooner next time, but anyway enjoy!
I slowly open my eyes to the smell of herbs and try to stand but a sharp pain shots through my back as I do. I slowly lay back down and start to remember the fight with thee dogs. Relief floods through me like a stream.
I'm alive, I think happily to myself.
Then I glance beside me and see his ginger fur. Fireheart lay there beside me. So bloody and battered I could hardly recognize him.
"No," I whisper to myself "You saved my life." As the words leave my lips Brightpaw pads into the clearing with Cinderpelt.
"Shouldn't he have opened his eyes by now?" The she-cat meows worried
"He will open them soon ,but you must be patient," Cinderpelt calmly meows back.
I smile to myself and meow loudly to the two she-cats "Brightpaw stop worrying so much."
At this Brightpaw jumps up and exclaims in surprise "Swiftpaw your awake!"
She runs over and rubs her pelt against mine. I grunt in pain as she pushes against my back.
"O, I'm sorry did I hurt you," she meows surprised.
"I'm just a bit sore," I grunt "I'll live."
Cinderpelt walks over and smells my wounds "where is the pain?" she asks.
"My back ,but I'm fine really."
She nods and meows "Well if your sure because I really don't want to give you poppy seeds sense you just woke up."
I nod assuring then look again at Fireheart "is he going to be ok," I ask her worried.
Cinderpelt let out a long sigh of both grief and helplessness "if only I knew, I have tried everything I can but there is no progress," then she looks back at me "unlike you Swiftpaw your recovery was a miracle."
I ignore the last comment and look up at her "So he's going to die?" I ask
She shakes her head "Only StarClan can help him now," with this Cinderpelt turns and goes to her den.
I start to rise to my feet ignoring the pain.
"What are you doing?" Brightpaw meowed surprised "Your still injured!"
"Well I'm not staying in here all day, come on,"
We exit the den and as we do the cats in the clearing turn to see us, as they do they rush forward in greeting.
"Swiftpaw what are you doing out of the den!"
"What was it like fighting all those dogs?"
"Are you alright?"
There where so many questions about the dogs and my injuries I didn't have time to answer them before a voice echoed through the clearing.
"Back away and let him breathe,"
At the sound of their leaders voice the cats backed away allowing me and Brightpaw a good view of Bluestar standing on the high rock.
"There will be plenty of time for Swiftpaw to answer your questions," Bluestar continued, "but right now there is something I must do that should have been done long ago, and I deeply regret this having to have happened to bring me to my senses."
Excitement surges through me as I realize what Bluestar is saying.
"Brightheart, Swiftpaw, please step forward."
Me and Brightpaw make our way up to the high rock side by side excitement clear in both of our eyes. As we reach it Bluestar jumps down from the high rock and steps in front of Brightpaw, she looks over at me nervously and I smile and give her a small nod of encouragement.
"Brightpaw you showed courage and level-headedness when you came to warn clan of the dog attack, and for this I give you your warrior name. Brightpaw, from this moment forward you will be known as Brightheart, for you have a true warriors heart."
Brightheart's eyes glow as she touches noses with her leader, and Bluestar then turns to me.
"Swiftpaw, you showed great strength and warrior spirit in fighting the wolf pack, you were willing to give you life for your clan and for this I give you your warrior name. Swiftpaw from this moment forward you will be known as Swiftclaw."
I touch noses with her trying not to shake with joy
I am finally a warrior! I think happily as the clan calls me and Brightheart's name up to Starclan.
I look up at the heavenly warriors and I can see an outline of cat looking down at me through the stars.
A voice echoes down from the form As the blazing fire fades our last hope is the swift claw of a true leader
I blink surprised as I hear the words again from the night before, I look around and see Bluestar looking down at me knowingly.
Did she hear too! I think in alarm but as I do she turns back towards the clan and I shake my head. I need to calm down, I'm just on edge from the dog attack, I think, these voices will pass soon.
Even as the words pass through my mind I know it isn't true. Whatever Starclan is trying to tell me is serious and wasn't going away anytime soon.
Thanks for reading, please read and review it really helps me out. I will update as soon as I can!
