Thx for the reviews :) :P


Hollypaw yawned as she stood up, stretching her legs to their full length before looking across at Firepaw and Rosepaw, who were still sleeping peacefully.

Even though they were all siblings they didn't look that similar, well Rosepaw and Firepaw did, Hollypaw didn't. Firepaw had quite bright orange fur and hazel eyes, Rosepaw had pale ginger fur and light green eyes.

Hollypaw, on the other had, had her father's long, tabby fur and his amber eyes. Hollypaw left the den and stepped into the clearing, which was still relatively quiet.

"What are you doing up so early?" Squirrelflight asked.

"Couldn't sleep." Hollypaw answered.

"Why?" Squirrelflight asked.

"Dreams." Hollypaw said.

"What about?" Squirrelflight asked.

"I can't remember." Hollypaw lied.

She definitely did remember, she remembered them so vividly, like they had actually happened. She had been dreaming of Darkclaw, her and Darkclaw, together.

"Do you want to go on dawn patrol?" Squirrelflight asked.

"Yeah." Hollypaw said faking a smile.

"Squirrelflight?" Hollypaw said.

"What Hollypaw?" Squirrelflight sighed.

"Can I go to the gathering today, with Rosepaw and Firepaw?" Hollypaw asked.

"I'll talk to Bramblestar." Squirrelflight said.

"Thank you." Hollypaw said happily.

Squirrelflight sighed, She knew Hollypaw very well, she was her kit of course, and she was sure that there was something she wasn't telling her.

Hollypaw found going along the tree trunk a lot easier than last gathering, and was soon on the island, followed by Rosepaw and Firepaw.

"What are you so happy about?" Firepaw asked.

"What do you mean?" Hollypaw responded.

"Well," Rosepaw said, "You have this massive smile on your face."

"I'm just excited, that's all." Hollypaw said.

"But we've been to a gathering before." Firepaw said.

"Yes, but this is different." Hollypaw exclaimned.

"How?" Rosepaw asked.

"It just is." Hollypaw sighed.

"How?" Rosepaw asked again.

"Well, we're going to talk to others this time aren't we." Hollypaw said.

"I guess." Firepaw said, shrugging his shoulders.

The three of them carried on in silence until they were surrounded by cats from all the clans. They saw two Shadowclan apprentices and went over to them.

"Hello." Rosepaw said.

"Hey," Said one of the apprentices,"I'm Cinderpaw."

"And I'm Ashpaw." Said the other one.

"I'm Hollypaw." Hollypaw spoke up, "And that's Firepaw, and that's Rosepaw." She said, pointing to her siblings in turn

Soon the five of them were chatting away like they had known eachother for ages. Hollypaw didn't realise that cats from other clans could be so friendly, especially Shadowclan. It wa sprobably because of the full moon, and if they met at any other time they would probably be fighting.

As Hollypaw thought about this the leaders started to speak, not that she was paying any attention, she had seen Darkclaw sitting at the bottom of the tree with the other deputy's.

As Hollypaw looked at him, he looked at her and she turned away in embarrasment. Why was she so bothered about him? She guiltily thought about the dreams last night and took another look at Darkclaw, who was still looking at her.

'Stop it, stop it!' She thought in her head, she had to stop looking.

Soon the leaders had finished speaking and the cats started socialising again, but this time Hollypaw wasn't concentrating on the conversation, she was too busy paying attention to Darkclaw, who was coming her way.

No one else seemed to notice him slip behind a bush, but she did, and she thought that maybe, just maybe, he wanted her too.

She quietly made her wayover to the bush and stood there awkwardly until Darkclaw hissed at her, "Come on then!"

She didn't need telling twice and slipped behind the bush, the two of them sat in silence until Darkclaw spoke, "I-I can't stop thinking about you." He eventually admitted.

Hollypaw took a deep breath, "I can't stop thinking about you either." She sighed.

"Meet me by the border, tomorrow night." Darkclaw said.

"What!" Hollypaw exclaimed.

"Please, I just can't stop thinking about you, please, just once." Darkclaw pleaded.
