The new Blood Clan

By Zirafan

Mystery / Action

The Future

Poison woke up and for the first time in a while she was glad. Scourge had left the clan. He was gone. Finally Bloodclan could be something new. Something better.

Poison could hear the rustling of cats from where she slept under the remains of a cardboard box. Stretching out one short black paw she reached for the warmth of the day light. Soon she would have to get up she had a meeting with Treeclan.

Poison pushed herself up and made her way into Bloodclan camp. Instantly she was greeted by the scent of fresh-kill. As much as she would love some she needed to get going. She'd hunt on the way to Treeclan.

"I got you Blizzard!" Willow called from the top a metal staircase. "Nuh-uh." the young tom retorted. "Kit's stop it!" Winter called from where she sat nursing Frost and Lion.

"Not going to say hi?" Featherflight asked. Poison turned toward her sister. "Featherflight I'm so sorry I completely forgot. I've got this big meeting with Treeclan." Poison apologized. "Poison calm down. I know you wouldn't forget something as important as my kits without a reason. Ever since we were kits hoping that we would become Bloodclan I knew that." Featherflight laughed as she said the last part and Poison nodded relieved her sister understood. "Thank you." Poison mummered to her sister before leaving.

It was a crisp no-leaf day and the sun was shinning brightly when Poison set out along the path to Treeclan territory. Tall brick, metal and glass buildings loomed high above her and Leaping cats as they were called leapt from building to building hoping to catch birds. A few of the Wirecats were perched delicately on the wires in between the buildings. They waited for squirrels or birds to approach their wires so they could pounce. Scavengercats wove in and out of small holes in buildings bringing out mice and rats. They were all too busy to notice the nervous Bloodclan cat in their territory.

Poison finally reached the abandoned park Treeclan used as an old beat-up red roller rolled by on it's big black wheels. Poison whipped around as she heard a hiss from one of the trees.

"Well, well, well, look who it is." Poison turned to see an old brown tabby she-cat coming toward her. "Leaf it's good to see you too." Poison said. Leaf smiled. "Listen Poison I know that what Bloodclan did was all under Scourge but some of my clan, some real important parts they disagree." Leaf's smile faded as she said this. "I understand but if I could just talk to them-" Poison was interrupted by a big gray tom. "Well I'm so glad that Bloodclan is finally here to grace us with it's presence. Should I bow?" "Rock Bloodclan's changed." Leaf said. "So you say." Rock said glaring at Poison.

Poison shifted her feet. "Treeclan doesn't have to help us with anything all I'm asking is that the elders and kits we have can be protected from harm here. "Well isn't that just grand Bloodclan asking little old Treeclan to protect their kits. Where was that when they took our kits as their own and trained them to kill us? There own family. Where was that when sister turned on sister and brother turned on brother? Huh!" Rock asked.

"Nowhere under Scouge's rule." Poison replied. Rock was taken aback by her reply but only for a moment. "She admits it!" he exclaimed. "Settle down Rock." Leaf said gazing at Poison. "You still have those kits and I won't do anything for Treeclan until they're returned." Rock said. Leaf cast an apologetic at Poison. "We're still sorting out which kits are which but they will be returned as soon as possible." Poison said.

"See Rock?" Leaf said. Rock snorted at this. "We do have a few litters sorted out if you want to send the mothers and some Treeclan warriors to identify and pick them up." Poison offered. "That would be great I'll send them right away." Leaf said. "We also have some…bodies of the kits who….didn't make it." Poison said. Leaf nodded.

Poison paused for a moment. "I'm….I'm really sorry..for..for what Bloodclan has done." Poison said. "If you think any amount of sorry is ever going to make up for-" this time it was Leaf who interrupted Rock."Thank you." Leaf said sincerely and Poison remembered she was one of the mothers who's kits had been taken. A tear fell down Leaf's check and she stayed silent for a moment this seemed to shock even Rock. Poison backed away and Leaf blinked her tear away. As she did this Poison realized what it meant for Bloodclan that other leaders where showing emotion when in their presence. They might just might have a chance of forgiveness.
