Chapter 1

"He was very brave," Darkstar said to her.

"I know that, but why did he have to die?" Tigerpaw whispered.

"He died saving Flashpaw," Whitestripe muttered. Everyone knew that Flashpaw was his son.

"Who will be my mentor now that Flameheart is dead?" Tigerpaw whispered.

"Whitestripe will," Darkstar answered.

"But right now you're going on border patrol with me, Flashpaw, and Eaglewing," Whitestripe meowed and began walking away.

"But then I'll be the only she-cat," Tigerpaw complained.

"Then you'll just have to deal with it," Darkstar teased and motioned me to the

"Alright, I'll go," she sighed and padded out, following Whitestripe.

"I'm sorry about Flameheart," Flashpaw said, walking next to Tigerpaw.

"You should be," she snapped. "It's your fault he's dead."

"What do you mean, 'it's my fault'?" he spat at her. "It's not my fault that three WaveClan warriors attacked me!"

"I'm sorry, Flashpaw," Tigerpaw called after him, but he ignored her.

"C'mon, Tigerpaw," Eaglewing sighed, padding next to her. "We have to patrol the WaveClan border."

"Alright," she muttered and the patrol began running through the forest.

"I scent something," Tiger hissed as they approached the border.

"Me, too," Whitestripe whispered as bushes on the other side rustled.

"Intruders!" a black tom yowled, leaping out of the bush.

Tigerpaw instantly recognized Raggedstorm, the tom that was involved in the killing of Flameheart.

"If you were smarterthan a mouse, you would see that we're still on our side!" Tigerpaw growled.

Just then, the bush shook again, and a grey and white tom stepped out.

"What are you doing here?" he spat.

"Are you blind?" Whitestripe asked. "We're on border patrol!"

"You were about to cross the border!" Raggedstorm snapped.

"Um, no we weren't!" Eaglewing growled. "No, if you don't mind, we're going to continue out patrol!"

"We will, too!" Raggedwing grumbled. "Let's go, Smokepaw."

As the two patrols separated, only Smokepaw and Tigerpaw were left in the clearing.

Why am I having this weird feeling in my heart? She asked herself.

"Bye, Tigerpaw," Smokepaw muttered and padded away.

"Goodbye, Smokepaw," Tigerpaw sighed and turned away. "Goodbye."
