Prologue

"She's beautiful!" said the silver queen

"…Yes," answered a brown tom.

"'Yes'? Is that all?"

The tom snorted. "I'm sorry, I really meant this: Oh, Mistblossom! She is the most beautiful kit ever! Almost half as beautiful as you are! You are the most wonderful cat SkyClan has ever been graced with! In fact, you're the most wonderful can ever to walk the forest! No, the world! Your beauty is—"

"Don't mock me, Twigpelt."

Twigpelt glared at the she-cat but didn't reply. He gazed silently at the tiny silver kit—so much like her mother. His thoughts were interrupted by a cold mew. "What is it?"

"StarClan has quite a path for this little one." Twigpelt instantly regretted saying anything at all.

"I knew it! I knew it! Tell me, Twigpelt. What is her destiny?"

"How am I supposed to know?"

"You're a medicine cat! It's your job to know!"

"I just told you everything I know."

"Well, we've already established that you're not very knowledgeable, haven't we?"

Twigpelt spat.

"She's going to be a leader," Mistblossom said, as if she had just said, 'It's going to rain.'

"You don't know that," Twigpelt said. "She might be just a deputy, even the mother of a leader—or a medicine cat."

"StarClan forbid! You'd have to be her mentor. And she could never have a mate!"

"And we all know how nice that is, eh, Mistblossom?"

"It's really none of your business. However, it is my business to know my own daughter's destiny."

"Not really," Twigpelt said, an edge to his voice. "It's her destiny, not yours—or mine."

"You just don't want to tell me. Just because you hate me."

"There has to be one tom in the forest who doesn't like you."

"You're changing the subject. She's going to be a leader, and you know it."

"She's less than a day old. Can you really expect me to know her full destiny? She might be a leader, but then again—"

"She's going to get her nine lives at the Moonstone and all the other Clans will respect her and she's going to have the perfect name to fit her future."

"What? Perfectkit?" Twigpelt said sarcastically.

Mistblossom rolled her eyes and told him the name.

"No!" Twigpelt gasped. "That's a disrespect to StarClan!"

"The warrior code doesn't forbid names!"

"You'll regret this choice. You'll be thought poorly of by all the Clans—she'll be thought poorly of by all the Clans. You can't do that to her!"

"And you can't stop me. It's the perfect name!"
