Hey guys! I am SO excited for this story that I adopted from Mosspath of Riverclan o3o. Okay, so just a refresher: Nico, Percy, and Annabeth have been sucked into the warriors world. I will copy and paste and go over it to make sure any mistakes are gone, again, FIVE CHAPTERS BELONG TO MOSSPATH OF RIVERCLAN o3o, not me, but I am adopting the story, DISCLAIMER: I do not own Percy Jackson and the Olympians, or Warrior Cats. Rick Riordan and Erin Hunter do. Thank you.
Chapter 1 – how it all began
I was training in the woods with Percy and Annabeth when it happened. It started out as any other day when I was at Camp Half Blood. I woke up, ate breakfast and trained in the arena. The usual. It was starting to get a little crowded, so I decided to go to the woods to train, Annabeth and Percy decided to tag along. I love 'em, but with them being a couple and all, I always felt a little third wheel-ish.
After roaming around the forest for like an hour, we stopped at a sunny little clearing where we could train. Percy and Annabeth started to duel, Riptide against dagger. I decided to work on short distance shadow travel. I strolled around the perimeter of the clearing looking for a good strong shadow. Under a large oak tree I found the perfect one. After a few miss fires I finally got it right, and shadow traveled from one tree to the next. I stopped and watched the fight, Percy had the skill factor, but on the other hand Annabeth always has a plan in her head. Being ADHD I got bored and started to wander, I tested myself for speed, aim, and power needed. Since the trees grew fairly close together the speed was a cinch and it used up almost no power, but my aim needed a little work.
I was maybe a quarter of a mile away from the clearing when I heard Annabeth and Percy say in sync "Dead!" I guess they tied, I should probably head back. I stepped out of the shadows and started back to the clearing, I was maybe 20 feet away from the clearing and I could just make out Annabeth and Percy taking a brake on the far side of it, when I noticed a strange shadow at the bottom of one of the trees. It had a purple tint to it and it seemed to swirl around.
"Nico! Hey Nico, Where are you?" Percy called.
"Over here!" I called back, "just checking something out!" I turned back to the shadow again and it had moved up to the middle of the tree now. Percy and Annabeth were making their way towards me but all I could do was stare at the thing on the tree, as it seemed to move around. I crept up to it and tentatively reached out my hand. When my hand touched the vortex I was sucked in, and when I woke up I couldn't believe my eyes.
I was stuck in a tree, of course, but what I say below me was unreal. There were maybe 300 cats in a large clearing and they all seemed to be staring at the same tree. After I steadied myself on the branch I peered through the leaves and spotted a large tree, on its branches were four cats; a ginger cat with a flame- colored coat, a large white cat with huge jet-black paws, a brown tabby, and a gray cat.
"What the-" I stopped and listened as the large white cat spoke.
"-and that is all? Anything you'd like to add Firestar?" asked the white cat.
"No," the ginger cat, Firestar, replied and instantly everyone started to break into four groups.
I waited in stunned silence as all the cats left. After finally coming to my senses I climbed down the tree and landed perfectly on all fours. Wait. All fours? I surveyed the area from the shadows of the trees for any other talking cats and found none, but I did find that I was on a small island in a lake. I sat down on the water's edge starring out across the lake into a forest of pines.
"Where in Hades am I?" I sighed and looked down at my reflection. Where my refection should have been, a cat with unruly black fur and brown eyes looked back at me. I blinked a few times and leaned in towards the cat and it mimicked me and I realized… I'm that cat… I leaped back in surprise and bumped into a tree and whirled around in surprise.
I sat down and took a deep breath. "Calm down Nico, calm down. You can't do anything if you're freaking out." I took another deep breath and looked around me. Then I noticed two cats about 15 feet away, sitting on the sea shore starring at their reflections and yelling at each other in hushed voices. I retreated behind the tree I ran into and peeked around it. One of the cats had a short blond colored coat and the other was raven black like me, but he wasn't fluffy.
I took a step back and stepped on a twig, making a fairly large SNAP! The two cats turned around and I quickly ducked behind the tree. I heard their paws echo across the lake as they approached making them sound like an army. I took a chance and peeked around the tree to see them only a few feet away and I could clearly see their eyes. Now, the blonde had stormy grey eyes and the other had glinting sea green ones. I took a deep breath and stepped out into the open. I was smaller than both of them by 2 inches but I didn't let that get to me. They stared at me then took a quick glance at each other then back to me.
"Hi," Said the taller black cat, "who are you?"
I sat down and stared at them for a few seconds then mewed, "I think the question is: who are you?"
They stared at me for a moment then the blonde spoke. "Okay, I'm Annabeth and this is Percy. Now, who are you?"
I stayed silent for a few seconds. "You guys look different." Was all I could think to say.
"Nico?" Annabeth asked after a good long silence.
I stood on my hind legs and put up my arms in a 'ta da!' kinda way and meowed, "the one and only."
"You're fluffy.." Percy meowed.
"Really? I hadn't noticed," I said in a duh kinda fashion.
"Okay, now that we have found each other what now?" Annabeth asked.
"You could come with me…."
