What could have been: A Scourge Story (Chapter 4)“Just a little more, Tinypaw! You almost had that mouse!” Whitepaw said encouragingly. Tinypaw had been trying to master the hunter’s crouch.
“You need to get lower to the ground so you don’t startle them.” Bluefur said, putting a paw on his back.
Tinypaw noticed a small squirrel. Determinedly, he assumed the crouch again. He crept slowly towards it, and just managed to get it.
“Look, I got it!” Tinypaw mewed through the squirrel’s fur. He dropped his catch in front of Bluefur.
“Nice job.”Patchpelt said approvingly. Bluefur smiled again. His first catch… no, I really sho
What could have been: A Scourge Story (Chapter 3)“Bluefur, what are you doing here?” Bluefur snapped awake to see her sister staring down at her in confusion. Bluefur scrambled up, almost hitting Tinykit.
“I… um. Look, I’ll tell you later. Something really awful could have happened.” Bluefur said, lowering her voice to a whisper because Whitekit had just woken up.
“Hey! Do I get to be an apprentice today?”Whitekit asked, jumping in between them. Snowfur jumped back.

Bluefur slunk out of the Warriors den, pleased to find that Thistleclaw wasn’t in his nest. She could get some evidence against him, and then Snowfur would see what a hedgehog he was.
She quickly padded over to the apprentices den. Surprisingly, Tigerpaw was sound asleep. Perhaps this was part of the plan, for Thistleclaw to go first.
“Sleep tight, Tiger.” Bluefur whispered before moving on again.
Bluefur walked behind the nursery, trying her best not to step on any twigs. She would look suspicious too if she was found slinking around at night.

Sunstar led her between the crowd of surprised cats, who were all meowing or hissing.
“I’m sorry, Sunstar. It just didn’t feel right leaving the kit alone to die.” Bluefur said, wincing. Sunstar sighed heavily.
“I understand what you mean. But think what the other clans will say!” Sunstar replied, sitting down in the corner of the den. Bluefur rolled her eyes.
“It doesn’t matter what they say! Thunderclan will have another warrior for its ranks!” Bluefur reasoned, stepping closer to the leader.
“Alright then, Bluefur. This kit shall be allowe

It began and ended with a word.
Not a particularly strong or powerful word, but a word that changed everything. It wasn't too long or difficult to spell. It wasn't uncommon either. In fact, it was a perfectly ordinary word, but, I suppose, its commonplace origin is what made it so special.
I loved that word.
But the word doesn't mean much without the story along with it and I was always one for telling good stories.
I ignored the call from the other room and remained seated. That tone wasn't unfamiliar. Taking a bite from my toast, I waited for him to call again. It wouldn't be more than ten—
