medicine cat Posted July 11, 2022 Author Share Posted July 11, 2022 CHAPTER 64 - DAY 1331 CURRENT SEASON: Fall year 34 STATUS CHECK Leader: EAGLESIGHT (Brown she-cat with beautiful green eyes and sharp claws) Doctor: SQUIRRELFIRE (Blazing ginger she-cat with a bushy tail) Citizen: MELLIE (Light brown she-cat with a twisted front right leg) Arrival: Citizen: RAINTUFT (Dusty tan tomcat with light ginger mane) Arrival: Citizen: CHOCOLATE (Calico she-cat with brown patches) Arrival: Citizen: FLASHSTEP (Dark tabby tomcat with a bushy tail and brown eyes) DEATHS Guard: LACEPELT (Small dusty gray she-cat with tan patches and soft fur) Doctor: BURNINGFACE (Gray tomcat with ginger patches and brown eyes) The cats of the colony realize that they need a guard. "I'll be the guard," says Mellie. A bearyena attacks the colony, leaving a scar on Eaglesight's right shoulder. While Eaglesight is recovering, Squirrelfire whispers in Flashstep's ear: "Now's your chance. Spend some time with her." Flashstep settles down beside Eaglesight in the doctor's den. "Thought I'd keep you company while you're recovering," meows Flashstep. He drops some herbs in front of Eaglesight. "It'll help your wound heal." The two spend some time talking, and finally Flashstep takes a deep breath. "I'm gonna cut to the chase." He places a paw on Eaglesight's. "I like you, Eaglesight. "I'd really like to be your mate. You're welcome to say no, but I think we'd make the best team out of any two cats in this colony." Eaglesight smiles. "I'd love to be your mate, Flashstep." The colony celebrates their fall festival, and winter arrives. In the winter, Eaglesight grows into a full adult she-cat. Chocolate grows into a teenaged she-cat, and begins to hang out with Squirrelfire. Mellie dies of old age. Chocolate mourns her mother and approaches Eaglesight. "I'd like to be guard," says the young she-cat. "I'm the strongest in the colony, and I want to be like my mother." Eaglesight nods in approval. "You can be the guard, Chocolate." Flashstep grows into an adult tomcat. He approaches Eaglesight one day. "Eaglesight, what do you think about having kittens?" he asks, his whiskers twitching nervously. Eaglesight thinks about it. "I want to, I just..." She sighs. "I'm scared of raising them like my mother raised me." "I think you'd be a great mother," purrs Flashstep, nuzzling his mate. "If you're nervous, I understand. But I'll help you raise them." "..We can have kittens soon," says Eaglesight. "I do want them. And I think I'll overcome my nerves with you with me." The colony celebrates their Winter festival. 3 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
