The moon shone brightly in the sky, giving off beams of silvery light. A light silver tabby leaned into the shoulder of her mate, purrs racking her body. “I have something very special to tell you, my love,” she meowed, glancing at her slightly swollen stomach. She hesitated for a moment, before plunging right in. “Blizzardpeak, I’m expecting your kits.”
“That’s wonderful, Silvermist!” the off-white tom exclaimed, nuzzling his mate’s cheek. “Our kits will be perfect, beautiful and clever like you, strong and handsome like me...” Blizzardpeak puffed out his chest. “I can’t believe I’m going to be a father! Ever since Oakshade and Nightfeather said I would never have kits, I always believed them.” He cracked a smile. “But it turns out they’re wrong. Oakshade and Nightfeather are the ones who don’t have kits.” Blizzardpeak chuckled softly, before raising his head to lap at Silvermist’s ears. The warm, strong rasps of his tongue moved quickly down the silver warrior’s back, cleaning her pelt thoroughly. “Do you know when the kits are due?”
“In about a moon,” Silvermist answered, her voice almost a murmur. She wrapped her tail around her paws and bent down to press her nose to her stomach. “Hear me, little kits? I am your mother, and with the power of a mother’s love, I will promise to love you, forever and always.” Her paws ached with such love that she thought she might burst with the deep feeling. With Blizzardpeak by her side, she felt as if she could handle anything, and that was how she felt about her kitting, only moments of heartwarming love.
Liam Butler: I am Liam Butler, and I wrote this novel. If that sounds like an AA admission, that's because it sure feels like one. It is traditional for a writer to hate his own work, it is almost a rite of passage to destroy one's own work in a drunken rage for the first time. Perhaps it's the public availab...
