"When will they be back Blossomfall?" Stormkit asked. Since their was a huge fight in the forest, all the kits were ushered into the nursery. Sandstorm was fighting so they were in Blossomfall's nest with Berrykit.

Blossomfall licked Stormkit's head. "Who knows? Fights can last awhile. And then they can be over quickly. Hurricane clan has such amazing warriors though so it might be over very soon." Blossomfall meowed, trying to cheer them up.

"Do আপনি miss being a warrior?" Dawnkit asked. Blossomfall nodded. "But once Berrykit is old enough, I'll go back to my duties." She sounded excited. Stormkit smiled. He had always liked Blossomfall.

"Tell us a story!" Dawnkit meowed. "Oh! Oh! Tell them the one about the dark forest war!" Berrykit meowed with bright eyes.

"Well first off, Berrykit your about to step on Brightkit." Berrykit turned around and saw she was almost on শীর্ষ of the sleep kit. "Oh. Sorry."
She took a couple paw steps forward. "Good. And সেকেন্ড of all arn't আপনি kits tired?"

"Nope!" Dawnkit said. "Sandstorm already made us take a nap." Stormkit meowed. "And I'm not sleepy!" Berrykit added.

Blossomfall looked around then ব্যক্ত quietly. "Did আপনি know their's a trick to becoming the best warrior?" All the kits shook their heads eagerly.

"Well their is. The trick is: sleep. It's ব্যক্ত that the kits who sleep the most arn't as tired when their warriors. So they can train more. Fight better. And be আরো alert. But only one kit in the whole nersuery can be the best."

All the kits eyes were as wide the a full moon.

"Really?!" Dawnkit asked excitedly. Blossomfall nodded.

Berrykit gave a little bounce. "I'll sleep the most! I'll be the best!" "No! It's going to be me!" Stormkit said.

"I think Brightkit's doing the best so far." Blossomfall ব্যক্ত smiling. "No! I'll be the best!" Stormkit meowed. Then along with Berrykit and Dawnkit, Stormkit shoved his muzzle into Blossomfall's পশম and went to sleep.

********************************************

"Look their back!" Brightkit meowed waking up Berrykit, Dawnkit, and Stormkit. Blossomfall nudged them all up. "Go and see the warriors!" She meowed.

Blossomfall jumped and went to see Thornclaw.

"Come on! Sandstorm's back!" Dawnkit meowed excitedly. All four kits jumped up and raced out. "Where is she?" Stormkit asked. "Over their!" Berrykit meowed.

They raced over to where Sandstorm was just walking into the clearing. She was limping and to the kits horror, was covered in blood.

"Sandstorm!" The kit's all cried and raced over. The other মার্জার gasped then they saw her. "I-I'm fine." Sandstorm managed... then she feel over. "No!" Stormkit cried. He raced over and started nuzzling her face. Dawnkit and Brightkit
were right behind him. "Look out!" Jayfeather meowed shoving the kits aside. All the মার্জার watched in silence as he worked.

Then Jayfeather looked up sadly. "I've done all I can. She's in the paws of starclan now."

"I'll be fine!" Then she saw the kits. "My... kits. Come here." Stormkit raced up. "Sandstorm! S-" "Stormkit I'm... just fine. I want to tell আপনি three something. No matter what happens to me I sware দ্বারা Starclan you'll be alright."

She looked at Brightkit. "Brightkit. Your my gentle little ball of light. You've always had such a kind and caring spirit. One দিন you'll make an amazing mother and warrior." Brightkit started to cry some আরো and pushed into her mothers fur.

পরবর্তি she looked at Dawnkit. "Oh Dawnkit. আপনি look just like me, and with your fathers deep green eyes. Your my thinker. It won't surprise me any whenever আপনি really are Dawnstar. You'll be striking everywhere." Dawnkit nodded, not trusting herself to speak.

Then she looked at Stormkit. "My Stormkit... I named আপনি after the storm that happened in the dark forest. B-because no cat will ever forget it. And no cat shall ever forget you. You'll be the most amazing fighter. An excellent hunter. You'll always know how to fix things. And you'll be as quick and সত্বর as the wind. While আপনি look nothing like Firestar, I've never met a cat in my life that's had the exact same spirit and mind and হৃদয় as him." That did it. Stormkit pushed his muzzle into Sandstorms পশম crying.

Sandstorm sighed and looked up at Mistystar. "For me Mistystar... please?" Mistystar had tears as well. "I shall. I sware I will."

Sandstorm looked up and purred and thick and ruff purr. "Firestar? I've missed আপনি so munch! Look at your kits Firestar. They'll make us proud. Look at your clan. They'll make them proud. I'm ready now Firestar."

Stormkit looked around. Where was Firestar?! Where?!

Sandstorm sighed happily then looked at her kits.

"When আপনি three become warriors, me and Firestar will be the first to cheer your names."

And then she went limp. Squirrlflight sobbed into Bramblestar's shoulder and Leafpool wailed. Cloudtail walked up and touched noses with Sandstorm.

Sandstorms three kits sobbed. "Sandstorm! Sandstorm no! No! আপনি can't leave us!" Brightkit wailed.

"We'll miss আপনি too munch!" Dawnkit wailed.

"Sa-Sandstorm? Pl-please? Plea-please don't g-go?" Stormkit asked sobbing.

But it was no good. Sandstorm was gone now.

Sandstorm was dead.
