"Wait! D-Dappletail... don't go yet. I-I love you..." the calico she-cat's eyes widened. "But, J-Jayfeather! Y-you're a medicine cat!" He winced and looked away. "Yeah yeah." He muttered.
"But... for you, I'd do anything." Dappletails belly churned. She squeezed her eyes shut. "Anything?" She whispered. "Anything." He purred twining his tail with hers.
"Even, abandon your position in ThunderClan?!" She screeched. He scrabbled backwards, but nodded. She gasped. "Oh! Jayfeather... I’m sorry!... I love you to. But...
is Briarlight ready to be on her own?" He sighed and mewed slowly. "I- well, yes. She knows everything." She shook her head helplessly. "Fine." She sighed.
He purred loudly and pulled her closer to him. She breathed in his scent and he twined his tail with hers. They bounded back to camp. "Bramblestar!" She yowled.
The leader poked his head out of the door. "Yes?" The two cats raced over to his den and Jayfeather meowed. "We need to speak to you." The leader nodded and they followed him in. "Bramblestar.
You will hate me for this but..." Bramblestar stopped him. "I thought this would happen. Let me guess," he flicked his tail at Dappletail and Jayfeather stepped in front of her.
"Leave her out of this, please!" He begged. Dappletail sighed and rested her muzzle on his head. "It's fine." She murmured. He narrowed his eyes but nodded.
"Bramblestar, all due respect, but I feel my life would be better. Easier to live, if I could live it with Dappletail." The ThunderClan leader sighed and nodded. "Okay.
I understand, after all, you always hated being a medicine cat. When you were an apprentice and you did warrior training, you seemed happy. You will live as a warrior from this day on.
" Jayfeather purred and nuzzled Dappletails fur.
