Clawheart heard yowls of despair coming from the SilentClan camp, and smiled slightly to herself. She fell back into the shadows and walks over to Terrorstar.
"It sounds like Shatteredstar is dead," she reported to her leader. "This would be the perfect time to attack their camp."
Terrorstar stared off into the direction of the SilentClan camp, deep in thought. Clawheart knew that he cared for his son, but this was their chance to gain more territory!
After a few agonizing moments, Terrorstar replied. "No. It's not honorable, and it goes against the Warrior Code. We may be ruthless, but we are not savages. We can take them over when Nightfang claims leadership of his Clan."
Clawheart scowls, "But if we wait too long, then that miserable little Clan is going to run over to StormClan and get help from them!"
"Then we'll defeat both of them," Terrorstar replied calmly. "But for now, let's get back to our camp. I think it's time a certain apprentice got her warrior name. I don't think Crowblood would mind. She fought that badger more fiercely than any other warrior."
Clawheart nodded in agreement, her eyes gleaming with happiness at the thought of a new warrior. "I'm sure Frostpaw will be pleased," she purred. Both leader and deputy walked back to the SoulClan camp where all the cats were gathered around Death Rock, waiting to hear what Terrorstar had to say.
Terrorstar nimbly jumped onto Death Rock. "Normally I would ask for everyone to gather, but it seems like you all have done that already." Some warriors shared amused glances at that.
Clawheart sat a little bit below the rock, waiting for Terrorstar to speak again. "Today, one of our apprentices fought bravely today in defending our territory," the black and white tom continued. "And I say that this she-cat deserves her warrior name." He gazed over the crowd of cats until he found the pure white apprentice.
"Frostpaw, step forward." Crowblood and Frostpaw shared an excited glance as the about to be warrior proudly went up the rock.
Terrorstar climbed down Death Rock to stand in front of her. "I, Terrorstar, leader of SoulClan, call upon my warrior ancestors to look down on this apprentice. She has trained hard to understand the ways of your noble code, and I commend her to you as a warrior in her turn.
"Frostpaw, do you promise to uphold the Warrior Code and to protect and defend your Clan, even at the cost of your life?" "I do," Frostpaw said confidently.
"Then by the powers of StarClan, I give you your warrior name. Frostpaw, from this moment forward, you will be known as Frostfang. StarClan honors your bravery and courage, and we welcome you as a full warrior of SoulClan."
Terrorstar placed his muzzle on Frostfang's head and she licked his shoulder in return. The newly made warrior stepped back to face her Clan.
"Frostfang! Frostfang! Frostfang!" The SoulClan warriors cheered. Clawheart joined in, proud of how hard Frostfang worked to become a warrior. 'Watch out SilentClan', Clawheart thought. 'You are leaderless while we just gained a new warrior. Soon, SoulClan will make sure that you will wind up extinct. And there will be nothing you can do to stop it.'
