KirbyofRandom does not own Warriors
A/N: Okay! So now I have time to update, I finished my other story, but I started another one, BUT this is my #1 priority.
The clan carried on with their normal day activities; Cloudstorm was ordering warriors and apprentices were either hunting or battle training.
"Twistfire, Twistfire! Where are you?" The young apprentice called.
The gray tom walked out from the den where the visitors were staying. He stretched his legs and padded over
"Hey Applepaw, I talked to Cloudstorm; she said we could talk to Fengostar at sun-high." He greeted. It had been a couple days since the night they found out Redpaw was a traitor.
Applepaw flicked her ears, "Okay then, I should probably get going, I have to go hunting."
"Your mentor said I should take you out hunting, that way I could learn the territory more." Applepaw beamed.
Applepaw bounced along the pathway her paws itching to hunt. She gleamed with excitement when the two arrived at her favorite, and the best, hunting spot. But something felt… weird about hunting with the Skyclan tom, not only did she feel excitement, she felt sort of… bubbly. Something about him made her feel happy.
"Huh, what?" Applepaw stammered, her ears angled back and her tail drooped, "Sorry, I missed that, what was it again?"
Twistfire scoffed, rolling his light blue eyes, "I said I caught something.
"Oh," she mewed sheepishly looking down at her pitiful kill.
"You should focus on hunting and not daydreaming." He choked between amused purrs. Applepaw felt heat rush under her pelt as the gray tom brushed past her.
Stop blushing Applepaw! A voice rang in her head.
Don't stop! Go for him, he wants you and you know it! Another buzzed in. Applepaw listened as the voices argued in her head.
"I'm only and apprentice!" She accidentally called out aloud, the voiced stopped.
"What?" Twistfire stared at her, oblivious to what the voices said.
Applepaw flushed, "Uh… nothing."
Idiot! Why would he like YOU? You're an apprentice, he's a warrior! Well, I'm pretty sure he just became a warrior about a half moon ago… but that doesn't matter! He's Twistfire, even the name sounds like he's important to his clan, you're Applepaw, just an average apprentice. Last of all, you're from different clans! More specifically clans that are a moon's trip away! Applepaw thought as she caught a couple more pieces of fresh-kill, she stayed silent the way back to the camp.
The sun beat down on the camp, it may be leaf-fall but it still felt like a sauna. At sun-high Fengostar called Twistfire and Applepaw over to her den so they could discuss matters.
"We saw a cat sneak out the other night, we followed their track and found out who killed Leafkit," Fengostar perked with interest.
"Well, it was Redpaw, we saw her! She handed Darkstar Leafkit." Applepaw finished, Fengostar's eyes were nothing but cold slits.
"How dare that apprentice! When I find her I'll-
"She's not here. We haven't seen her since that night." Twistfire cut in.
"Go find her, bring her back her, she will be punished." The leader snarled, "Go!"
Applepaw and Twistfire raced out of the den, they dashed back out into the forest. They weren't even that far into the territory when the pair caught Redpaw's scent. Their steps grew softer, shorter, they stayed more alert than ever, and Redpaw could be anywhere. A sudden weight landed on Applepaw's back, it was none other than the dark hearted apprentice herself.
"Redpaw!" She growled, "what are you doing?"
"I'm not Redpaw anymore, I'm Redfur, Redfur of Darkclan!" Sneered the new warrior.
Applepaw pinned Redfur to the ground as she unsheathed her claws, this wasn't training anymore. But soon Redfur overcame Applepaw and had her paws planted on Applepaw's flank.
"Any last words?" Applepaw fought desperately against Redfur's weight but it was no use. Just then gray flashed as fast as lightning, knocking off Redfur.
Twistfire held down the thrashing Darkclan warrior until she gave up, he meowed something to her in an angry way but Applepaw couldn't hear, all she knew was that it was enough to get Redfur to surrender. They took her back to the clan where she was faced with many angry cats, especially Fengostar.
"Where have you been?" the leader meowed in an icy cold tone. Redfur looked down sheepishly, "I said where have you been?"
Redfur looked directly at her leader, "Darkclan! I'm now a Darkclan warrior! I'm Redfur of Darkclan!" Furious cats shouted and yelled at her.
"How could you?
"Darkclan? Why there?"
"Pile of fox-dung!"
Fengostar raised her tail for silence, even though Redpaw, or Redfur now, was her most hated enemy, she felt bad for her.
"Redfur, as leader of your birthclan hereby give you your punishment." Cats grew silent as they waited for her to announce it, the suspense was maddening.
"You probably were going to leave anyway, but I must make it official…
Fengostar continued over the clan's screeches, "If you are spotted on Drumfireclan's territory I give my warriors permission to kill you, no mercy should be shown.
Redfur is my enemy, but would she really betray her clan? What evil courses through her veins…. What blood courses through mine? Applepaw wanted to know more about her past, the only way she could was to go to Skyclan.
