You had decided it was a good day to go exploring.
Your pads began to ache as you scrambled over rocks. A river rushing by at the edge of your vision, the splashing water roared in your ears as you concentrated on your paw steps. Your stomach grew heavy with hunger as you gazed up at the clear blue sky, the sun hanging high over head. Leaves rustled as you leaped away from the waters edge and ran alone the forest line. Time seemed to pass quickly as your stomach began to rumble louder and louder each minute. Your paws ached and your eyelids were heavy. Scrambling to a stop, you gazed around at the unfamiliar territory. Your nose twitched as cat scent bathed your tongue. Uneasiness made your skin crawl as you bounded into the trees. Your paws began to drag as you drew farther and farther into the forest. You stumble over a bramble bush, tumbling down into a hollow. A sour tang hung in the air. Fox.
Your pelt rippled with fear as you got to your paws. You held back a yowl of pain as you put weight on your hind leg. You tried to scramble up the steep wall of the hollow but you fell back, your injured leg unbalancing you. A red-orange pelt flashed at the back of the hollow. The fox prowled towards you, its lips curled back in a half smile half snarl. You hesitated, desperate to get away. Before you could move, the fox lunged, sinking its jaws into your injured leg. You screeched, your vision getting hazy as pain seared through your leg. A battle cry sounded at the edge of the hollow. Four cat figures spilled into the hollow, hurling themselves at the fox. You gasped in relief as the fox released your leg. You lay your head on the ground, to weak to keep your eyes open.
You blinked open your eyes, strange scents overwhelmed you as you struggled in the nest made of moss and ferns. A she-cat sat beside you, laying her paw on your flank to calm you. "You need rest." she murmured. You lay your head back down, but you were to restless to sleep. The she-cat disappeared through the entrance, returning a few moments later with a chunk of soaked moss hanging from her jaws. She dropped the moss by your muzzle. "Drink it." she ordered. Her brown pelt was still a fuzzy haze as you lapped at the moss. Your head began to pound, and you quickly lay your head back down. "I'm Thistlestar, whats your name?" she asked calmly. You struggled to open your mouth but you forced your name out. "Would you like to join my clan?" she asked, her smooth voice lulling you to relax. You nodded stiffly. "Welcome to Craneclan!"
