Star looked at Fate, both reading one another's mind, both thinking the same thing, The Prophecy.

Star gave Fate a questioning look as Fate responded to it, 'What do you even mean? My prophecy was so confusing even I couldn't understand it.'
"Who is that- that voice in your head?" Star asks Fate, turning and at a quick pace beside Fate, heading down the passage to the prey center, where the rest of their winglet probably was.

"Stonemover maybe?" Star suggested her thoughts a forest of confusion.
"ᵢ'ₘ qᵤᵢₜₑ ₐ ᵦᵢₜ ₒₗdₑᵣ ₜₕₐₙ ₛₜₒₙₑₘₒᵥₑᵣ․" The voice told them, coming with a hint of laughter.
'Then who are you?' Fate asked him, 'The last known mindreader in the Nightwing tribe was-' It hit her, Darkstalker was the last 'documented' mindreader in the Nightwing tribe.
"Darkstalker?" Fate and Star asked aloud in unison.
The voice chuckled, "Yₒᵤ ₜwₒ gₒₜ ᵢₜ qᵤᵢ𝄴ₖₑᵣ ₜₕₐₙ ₘₒₒₙwₐₜ𝄴ₕₑᵣ․"
"Wait, you talked to Moon?" Star asked him.

'You said my prophecy was straightforward, how exactly?' Fate asked Darkstalker.

"That's only the first part..." Star remarks seating herself, though they were in the middle of the passage.

'They're the ones who kidnapped Anemone..." Fate thought at him, taking a seat as well.

"What are you guys doing?" yelled Echo from the end of the passage a few meters ahead of them, judgement lingering in his words like always, "And what was that, that thing you said. it sounded like a prophecy..."
"It was," Fate told him, standing up, Star followed suite, "And we're in it."
"You mean you two, right?" Echo asked, his thoughts beginning to pool with worry.
"No, she said Six dragons of Topaz, but not to the eye, which means our entire winglet, excepting our Mudwing who hasn't gotten here yet." Star told him, smirking at the Seawing's state of confusion and worry.
Echo sighs, his thoughts going back to his normal organized judgement. "So we need to gather the rest of out winglet." He says, quickly turning to face the prey center.
"Too late!" Says an enthusiastic Sandwing, Osiris, practically snout to snout with Echo, Mistral and Lotus behind him.
"Y-you shouted Anemone before you ran off, does that mean that Seawing princess did something related to your prophecy?" Mistral asked Fate, shivering again.
"Anemone? My sister couldn't hurt a fly." Echo remarked, nearly sneering.
"Echo," Star started, "Your Sister was kidnapped."
Did you really think that was the actual end?
Nope, this story is just getting started.
That was the end of Shifting Fate.
