This story is in Crowpaw's POV
▪The World I Lived In▪
I remember how it smelled, how it felt, what it was like to be alive in that place.
My mother, Addie, a beautiful calico she-cat, told me stories of what it felt to live outside the world I lived in, and I was scared of the outside world.
I never wanted to leave, until we had to.
▪When We Left▪
The reason we left was due to some tom-cats coming in and pushing us out. There were four cats that left with me and my mother. I dont remember any of them, except for one. Vaguely, though.
They were a dark brown tabby with a white muzzle and tail. I knew that we wouldn't survive, so I didnt take time to know them.
The river flooded that night as we slept beneath the stars. My mother was pregnant with kits. Neither they or her survived. No one survived.
I was only a five moons, but I do remember the cold, muddy water mixed with dirt and sticks, the sharp rocks, the deep breaths I took as my head sunk under the water.
I remember being stuck, the feeling of serenity under the rushing water. It was, peaceful. As if I was freed from a prison that I had been stuck in.
That moment lasted a second, but it felt like eternity. My eyes closed, and and I kept go of the little air I had left in my lungs.
Something woke me up from my dream-like state, something pulling me out of the water, dragging me to shore. I coughed up every single bit of water and collapsed.
I took huge breaths, larger than anything. They brought me to ThistleClan. They gave me the name of Crowkit, as I had no name before.
I was raised by a kind she-cat name Firedawn, and I became a medicine cat apprentice. I became good friends with the cat who saved me, and I stood by them as they died.
Their name was Silverpatch, a old tom. He died a peaceful death, something my mother was never granted. Seven other cats from that clan died along side my mother.
I was taught about StarClan, and now I know my mother walks along the stars with our ancestors. Since I've became a medicine cat apprentice, I've had my first dream about StarClan.
My mother came forward, and said how proud of me she was.
How strange life is, it seems.
