Alternate/Universe: Leafpool and Crowfeather

A/N: This story is not a sequel to my other stories however; it is just one I was thinking of.

Well.. here's the chapter. Not very good, but we have power outages every once in a while. (including right now). This story takes place after "Starlight" and between "Twilight", so if you get confused, just remember that.

Leafpool padded past the WindClan border. Cinderpelt was back at camp. Leafpool had told her she was going out to collect herbs. She hoped her mentor wouldn't think she was taking too long and come to fetch her.

She looked at her paws. I'm betraying my Clan, she thought unhappily. She looked at the ground harder, and with a flash of alarm she realized she was on WindClan territory. Firestar will shred me for kit bedding if he finds out.

Suddenly she felt a weight drop onto her back. Leafpool wriggled desperately. Oh no, she thought. I'm caught.

"What do you think you're doing?" growled a voice close to her ear. Leafpool flailed her paws, terrified. StarClan, forgive me. Then she recognized the scent.

"Crowfeather?" The dark gray tomcat let go of her. Leafpool felt her fur grow hot with embarrassment, and she looked away for a moment.

"What were you thinking?" he growled close to her ear. Leafpool faced him, her fur bristling uncomfortably.

"Crowfeather..," she began. He stared back and Leafpool felt another jab of embarrassment. I'm breaking the code meeting him!

He looked around, as if he were worried about his Clanmates noticing. "Leafpool." She sat up. His eyes were wide with pain.

"What happened?"

"I don't know if I should be telling you this," he meowed qiuetly. "I never meant for it to happen.. But Nightcloud had my kit."

Why?! Leafpool wanted to yowl the words aloud. Why had he chosen Nightcloud over her?

"You're my mate too," he pushed his nose in her fur. "Leafpool, I shouldn't do this..but I can't help myself.. I love you, Leafpool."

Leafpool felt confusion claw her stomach. "But you said Nightcloud had your kit."

"She did!" Anger flashed in his eyes for a moment. "I thought she would be a good mother.., and she is.., but there's no other cat who could replace you, Leafpool. And besides, you are expecting my kits." Crowfeather took a painful breath. "I couldn't leave her. No other cat in WindClan likes her. I'm sorry for it."

But you chose her first! Leafpool stared at him. How had he known she was expecting kits? Crowfeather let out a purr of amusement.

"Soon all of ThunderClan will be noticing," he meowed. "You'd better try eating so you look fat."

Leafpool purred in amusement. "If I joined your Clan now I would look fat!" she purred. He looked sharply at her. "Onestar would wonder why. And you're Cinderpelt's apprentice. You couldn't just leave."

Leafpool forced a purr. "What's your kit's name then?"

"Breezekit." Crowfeather met her eyes. "You really aren't angry? I didn't mean to hurt you, if I did. You have to understand."

Leafpool purred, for real this time. "I do, I promise. You're going to have to explain to Nightcloud why you're mooning over the ThunderClan's medicine cat apprentice."

He bristled playfully. "You're in my territory." He cuffed her playfully over the ear. Leafpool drew back.

"You will make sure the kit is well loved, won't you?" she meowed. "I don't want him to grow up hated and despised because of our.. mistake."

Crowfeather looked hard at her. "I will. Breezekit won't grow up hated. I can promise you that." Leafpool looked hard at him. "Please make him feel loved. I don't want him holding any grudges against my kits because of our mistake."

Crowfeather nodded. "Of course." His usually unfriendly gaze was gone, and Leafpool nuzzled him.

"I could join WindClan, you know," she whispered. "Then the kits would grow up together, and they would know that they were loved."

Crowfeather jerked his head around in surprise. "Are you sure you could take all the looks?"

Leafpool nodded. "Of course!" she meowed. "And our kits wouldn't grow up lied to." Crowfeather nodded. "But how do you intend to join?" he asked, his eyes narrowing. "Onestar would never allow it."

"But I will do whatever it takes to be with you," she protested. "And Breezekit would have den mates to play with."

Crowfeather sighed. "I didn't say not to join. I said it wouldn't be easy."

"I could announce it at the Gathering tonight," she meowed. "It's peaceful, so it should be better."

Crowfeather looked at her. "Okay," he mewed. "But please don't make things hard for you I couldn't bear to see you in pain."

Leafpool flicked her tail at him, purring. "For now you'd better stop worrying and get back to your kits."

Crowfeather straightened up. "You're right." He narrowed his eyes playfully. "And you'd better get out of my territory! Even a medicine cat can get her ears clawed for straying too far into WindClan territory."

Melinda Lee: It is a good story, but hard to read. There are no quotation marks when people speak. Several characters speak in some paragraphs and it all runs together.
