￼￼￼A ragged creature stumbled through the dense pine forest, it's bones visible through it's mangy unkempt pelt. It's eyes were dull as it looked wildly around for any trace of food. Nothing. It wandered until the faint crashed of water against rocks could be heard. The cat stumbled as quickly as it could over to the rushing torrent, it's thoughts immidiatly shooting to the image of a freshly killed trout. It settled by the river, a paw raised, ready to strike an unsuspecting fish. Though, a loud growl could be heard from the ferns. The cat swung around, it's fur spiking. A mahogany tom stepped out, his pelt gleaming in the weak sunlight. Behind him, 3 other cats fanned out. One, a hazel tabby she-cat with a long well groomed pelt, another, a white and grey she-cat with a peircing amber gaze, and the third, a younger greyish she-cat with dark grey marks , and they all smelled of fish and reptiles. The young she-cat gasped,
" Great Starclan is he/she dyinng?! "
The hazel tabby hissed back to her,
"No Hazelbird, he/she is a hungry loner, now hush"
The younger she-cat snapped her jaws shut and turned to the mangy creature. The white and grey cat snarled,
"Why are you here? You had better have a good reason, or I have every right to claw your ears off"
The mahogany tom snapped something out of earshot to the other cats, and the nod, silencing. The starving cat then responds to the white and grey cat's question,
"Im on the brink of starvation... and I need rest and shelter... and food.."
The mahogany tom nods, turning to his companions. The she cat whom had snarled at you muttered something to the tom. He shakes his head, and the tabby murmurs something. The young warrior mewed, and the rest of the cats nodded. The tom then turns back to the intruder and meows,
"Follow us if your smart, we can offer you everything you need"
The 4 cats turn, springing into the undergrowth. The cat follows as quickly as it can, gasping for air as they finally stop at their destination. The tom lifts his tail, signaling for the cats to duck under the dense wall of thorns and reeds. It emerges, and a wave of fish scent hits the creature, almost making it gag. The tom yowls,
"Falconstar! We have a visitor! Bring Pinestar, Skystar, and Oliver!!"
The cat almost laughs as a tiny she-cat slips out of a cave. She trots over to the others, holding a plump carp in her jaws. She sets it down, and 2 of the 3 she-cats who had accompanied the mahogany tom trotted away to other cats, who had been staring at the skinny cat. Replacing them were 3 other cats, a slender grey and white she-cat, a muscular grey she-cat, and a long furred black muscular tom. The 6 cats form a circle around the cat, and the smallest tabby drops the carp at it's paws.
"I see your hungry, eat, and then we will introduce ourselves."
The hungry cat looked up suprised that the apprentice sized she-cat showed such authority. The cat turned to the plump carp, scarfing it down in a few famished bites. The cats chuckle, and then the small tabby meows,
"I am Falconstar, leader of Heronclan, Pinestar, the slender grey she-cat, and Skystar, the big grey she-cat, are also leaders. Niku, the tom who escorted you here, is my deputy. Willowcloud, the hazel tabby she-cat who also escorted you here, is Pinestar's deputy. And Oliver,the black tom, is Skystar's deputy. Clear? I have heard that you need food, shelter and rest. Well look no more. You have found it."
