WELCOME
Welcome to The Eleventh Hour. We are a post-Firestar roleplay set in the new lake territories, and are AU after the end of the main series. Peace has reigned through the Clans for many moons, but now that peace has fractured and split among the mysteries surrounding their home. Cats are dying with only one thing in common: They are all found floating in, or laying wet and muddy around the lake. The Clans have begun to lash out at one another in fear and confusion, and only RiverClan seems to hold the key to preventing an all-out war. With an entirely member-driven (you decide the outcome!) plot, a mere two hundred minimum word count, and a friendly, active user base, we hope that you like what you see and will consider joining us.

"I don't give a mouse's tail what anybody else might think of us or whatever difference in rank they might see. There is none to me. You are a dear, dear friend to me, Oakwhisker, and I'm honored you feel the way you do. To tell the truth, there is no one else, there never has been. As long as I was serving ShadowClan, I thought that would be okay. But I was wrong. I do love you, Oakwhisker, and I would be just as honored to walk with you, if that's what you want."

AUGUST 25, 2015 Hey, guys! Sorry for the lack of events; between preparing for the new year of uni and trying to get SkyClan in order, there hasn't been much time for brainstorming. The month of September will, however, be chuck-full of stuff for you guys to enjoy to make up for it. That said, the August Activity Check and OTM Nominations have been posted. Please post there as soon as possible if you plan on sticking around.

AUGUST 05, 2015 Hey, guys; don't forget to give this a look-see. We've been seeing quite an unrealistic amount of forbidden relationships (especially regarding the site's medicine cats), so this thread contains some important new information regarding that.

AUGUST 04, 2015 OTM badges are running a little late, because I (Rowan) have to reinstall Photoshop before I can make them. They should start appearing on your mini-profiles within a day or two.

JULY 30, 2015 We have added a board for retroactive threads, titled the Hall of Dreams! This board is for anything that happened in a character's past - including things pre-site or things that never got a chance to be threaded out. All of the usual site rules apply!

JULY 25, 2015 The monthly Activity Check and OTM Nominations have been posted! Please reply to the thread as soon as possible. Also, we're working diligently on SkyClan's site lore, so expect them to make an appearance before Summer's end!

JULY 05, 2015 Ohoho, so soon? Yes! Another FLASH EVENT is taking place over in ShadowClan! Go protect your territory from a desperate fox!

JULY 04, 2015 Happy 4th of July, everyone! In celebration, an adder is attacking the ThunderClan nursery! Hurry and take part in this very fun FLASH EVENT. If you don't have any TC cats, don't worry; we will have stuff for everyone at some point. Stay tuned!

JUNE 25, 2015 We ask that you all please take a look at this post within the activity check thread, as it contains some important information regarding the OTMs.

JUNE 25, 2015 The monthly activity check and otm nominations have been posted! Please reply to the thread by July 1st, or you will risk deletion.

JUNE 21, 2015 Green-leaf has officially started on EH, and with it comes another event! This event will last for about two weeks, so have at it! The deadline has also been chosen for our SkyClan high positions, and it will be on June 28, 2015. However, they will likely not be announced until a few days after that, as we have implemented a new staff voting system for these sorts of decisions.

JUNE 20, 2015 Alright, congrats to our newest moderator, Aspen! All of the applications were beyond fantastic. This has literally been the hardest decision we've ever had to make, and I truly wish we could just wrap you all up in a tiny modlet blanket and keep everyone, but there will be more opportunities in the future, I'm sure.

JUNE 19, 2015 Friendly reminder for everyone to please post in this thread once you've finished your character. Sometimes it's hard for us to be able to tell which apps are done and which are not, which then leads to us taking forever to review and accept them. We don't like to keep people waiting for too long before they're able to play their characters, so this just makes it easier for us. Thanks!

JUNE 16, 2015 Seeing as how we've been seeing a lot of this lately, the rules have been updated.

JUNE 09, 2015 We now have a weather box! It can be found right beneath our welcome message, so please look to it when starting up new threads. This will be updated daily or weekly to keep things fresh, depending on how long the weather pattern holds.

JUNE 05, 2015 Today marks one year since EH's grand opening, and we are celebrating with a brand new skin! Not only that, but be sure to keep your eye out for several goodies throughout this month, including (but not limited to) contests and events. Here's to the future!

JUNE 04, 2015 In light of Tinsel's departure for the time being, Batnose has become the new ShadowClan medicine cat. Now, the reason we didn't hold auditions is simple; because Orchidsong didn't hold the position for long, we felt it to be reasonable that we fall back on someone else who had auditioned at the same time, and therefore we reviewed the old auditions one more time. Congratulations!

MAY 30, 2015 Training Threads and Pregnant Leaders / Deputies will no longer show up as a merit, just to keep things a little bit cleaner, as we're sure a lot of people will purchase training threads. This will prevent merit repeats for items. If your Training Thread or Pregnant Leader / Deputy item is still showing up as a merit, please PM Rowan and she will fix it. In similar news, we've limited the number of a single item permitted to be in your inventory at a time to one. This will hopefully prevent people from hoarding, and allow others to have a chance at snagging the item they need. Only one more day remains in the activity check, so please post if you plan on sticking around!

MAY 29, 2015 Please welcome Brandad to the EH Crew!! He is our newest moderator, so please don't hesitate to ask him questions and offer your congratulations!

MAY 28, 2015 Sadly, Tinsel has decided to step down from her position of staff. We will miss her, however she will definitely be welcomed back to the team if she ever decides she wants to help out again! She is not leaving the site, and will remain a beloved member of our community.

MAY 25, 2015 The monthly activity check and otm nominations have been posted.

MAY 19, 2015 Congratulations to Tyl and her character, Darkstorm, on becoming the new WindClan deputy! Thank you to everyone else who auditioned, too. You made the decision incredibly difficult for all of us (and Bran). We look forward to seeing how WC develops from here.

MAY 18, 2015 Don't forget to drop by our mentor and apprentice pairings thread to let us know when you've got enough posts in a thread. We try to stay on top of it, but some threads still manage to slip past us.

MAY 16, 2015 This is a reminder for everyone to please log into all your accounts daily, even if you don't post. It really helps us out when we recycle things. Also, remember that there is still a prey shortage! I've noticed a lot of threads where the hunting parties have been quite successful, however they should not be. Some prey is fine, of course, but you should not be finding large quantities of prey, and it shouldn't be large and/or plump when it is found. Yes, this applies to RiverClan, too; the fish are at an all-time low, as well, more likely to be found dead.

MAY 13, 2015 Congratulations to Tinsel and her character, Orchidsong, for becoming the new medicine cat of ShadowClan! If you didn't get it, we're sorry; there were a lot of great auditions, and there will surely be more opportunities to audition for another spot in the future. For instance, did you know that WindClan currently needs a deputy? The deadline for that has been set for May 19th, so go audition while you can!

MAY 10, 2015 Syn has chosen to step down from her role as WindClan leader. She is fine, so don't worry; she just doesn't feel like she can be active enough to hold that position. However, she will be keeping Reedwhisker, one of the RiverClan medicine cats, and Acornstar is still alive (now known as Acornbelly); we are still determining his reasons for stepping down. This means that Harenose has been promoted, and that WindClan Deputy auditions are now open!!

MAY 06, 2015 Congratulations to Nocturne and her character, Rooktail, for becoming the new deputy of RiverClan! We will be naming the new ShadowClan Medicine Cat on May 13th, so get your auditions in by then if you're interested!

MAY 01, 2015 The activity check has ended, and any inactive accounts have now been purged from the site. If you have returned, or you were somehow deleted by mistake, we ask that you simply remake your accounts and PM Rowan, so that she can restore your things.

APRIL 30, 2015 The activity check and otm voting will end tomorrow, so please post if you're still active, and haven't yet. If you don't have an active absence thread, you will be deleted if you don't post! There are also meetings going on in ThunderClan, ShadowClan, and WindClan that you guys can feel free to post in if you're looking for something quick to do. c:

APRIL 30, 2015 It's recently been called to my (Rowan's) attention that I may have handled Mericet's leaving quite poorly, and I would like to make it right. This should have been made on the day that she left us (which would have officially been April 27th, 2015), but here it goes, and I hope it's not too late for it to mean anything. Mer has decided that EH is not in her best interests anymore, and has decided to leave. However, I would like to say that she put a lot of time and effort into EH, helping me to make it the fantastic success it has been all this time, and I will forever be grateful to her for that. She drove me to make updates when I was being a bit slow, and when activity was low, she logged in and encouraged others to do so as well. She's the reason we have an automated marketplace now, and that awards system? Thank her for that. She loved the site as much as I do, so please understand that her leaving was through no fault of her own. As for her characters, she has said that they are all dead (except for adopted ones, which may be put back up for adoption), but she has requested that no details about their deaths be given, and I'd like you all to respect that wish. Thank you.

APRIL 29, 2015 Our new RiverClan Deputy will be announced on May 6th, so get those auditions in while you can!

APRIL 25, 2015 As per the usual, our Activity Check and OTM Nominations have been posted for the month of April. Please post, and vote as soon as you are able! From now on, those who don't vote in the OTMs will not be allowed to win in the category that they did not vote in. Any empty spaces will be chosen by our staff.

APRIL 21, 2015 The raid has ended with Stonestar's reveal that it is not the Clans killing off the cats... something is wrong with the lake.

APRIL 18, 2015 We now have a StarClan sub-board available for you all to roleplay the dead kitties that you've kept around! We don't want to see a bunch of freshly made dead cats, however; this is mainly for characters who have died on site. One or two cats from one of your living characters' pasts is alright, just don't go overboard please. Thank you!

APRIL 12, 2015 Due to the amount of people starting up a forbidden romance, which we feel to be quite unrealistic to the way that the warriors world works, it is now required that you purchase this from the marketplace. You will need to do this even if you've already begun your relationship, otherwise it will not be permitted to continue. If you've already given birth to forbidden kits, please PM Rowan or Mericet and they will gift you the forbidden romance, but only if you've already gotten that far. Thank you, and we hope you understand.

APRIL 09, 2015 Congratulations to Tinsel for being selected for biography moderator and to Zebra for becoming our new advertisement moderator! Be sure to give these two warm hugs when you see them. Good job everyone who auditioned, it was hard to choose between all of you!

APRIL 03, 2015 Currently, the staff team is accepting moderator auditions! They're open to members new and old, and we wish all you hopefuls good luck! We would also like to congratulate Bran, with his character Harenose for achieving deputy in WindClan!

MARCH 24, 2015 Congratulations to Golden, and Maplecloud for becoming the newest ThunderClan Deputy! Thank you to everyone who tried out; it was a truly difficult decision to make.

MARCH 22, 2015 The March activity check and OTMs have been posted! Please reply by April first. Thank you!

MARCH 17, 2015 The deadline for the ThunderClan Deputy Auditions has been decided: March 24, 2015. If you are interested in the position, please have your audition in by then. Thank you, and happy St. Patrick's Day!

MARCH 12, 2015 New skin! As always, please let us know if you find anything out of place or awkward, or if any of the colours sear out your eyeballs. Remember to please log into all your accounts daily, even if you don't post; it really helps us out when we recycle things.

MARCH 09, 2015 Due to Fallow's current situation, she has decided to downsize. As a result, sadly, Whitestep will be resigning, and ThunderClan Deputy Auditions are now open! Be sure to get your auditions in asap. WindClan MCA will remain closed until Zebra feels like Owlberry is ready to take on a new apprentice.
EDIT Fallow is alright, she just isn't able to be around much and felt that it was unfair for her to have high positions while she's on hiatus. She appreciates your concern and will be doing her best to keep us updated on how she is. <3

FEBRUARY 28, 2015 Friendly reminder for everyone to please log into all your accounts daily! It makes it easier on us when we recycle things. Thank you!

FEBRUARY 24, 2015 The February activity check and OTMs have been posted and end March third. Please post! <3

FEBRUARY 23, 2015 Due to our growing member base (and because of a recent incident on my part), you are now able to reserve names for up to one week at a time to make sure that your prefix does not get snatched up before you are able to finish your bio. Please visit the name claim to do so. On a brighter note, I am pleased by the rate at which the raid is moving! Keep it up!

FEBRUARY 19, 2015 Congratulations, Mothpaw, on becoming the newest member of ThunderClan's medicine team! A big thank you to all who applied for the position — you all definitely succeeded in making this difficult for me with your stunning applications!

FEBRUARY 19, 2015 It's about to get real over in ThunderClan, as the RAID has been started! The character excerpt contest has been closed, too, and the results of that will be posted momentarily. The ThunderClan MCA auditions are closed! Results will be posted by Moonaloo later today.

Adderstar stood just inside her den, her one remaining eye squinted in contemplation. The empty space where a yellow green orb previously sat had since scabbed over in the days following the raid. Sedgeleaf had instructed her to keep the wound clean, and though it occasionally leaked clear fluid, it did not smell like the rot which came with infection. The eye was gone, there was no mistaking that fact. But in it's place pride swelled in her chest. Shadowclan had displayed their might and ferocity like she had hoped they would. Rowanstar had lost a life by her own fangs. It was almost enough to elicit a rumbling purr in her throat.

Exiting her den the large tabby leapt up to perch on the low branch, her gaze sweeping across the clan. Some had doubted their actions in the raid, some had shown their loyalty to her and the clan and acted without question. But it was during the raid that things had become...complicated. Stonestar, the lying fox, had spurned their alliance and had only shown his face to make claims. Still, she was unsure. Previously she had suspected Thunderclan were behind the deaths, perhaps even going so far as to take out their own to appear innocent in the ordeal. According to their former allies however, the lake was to blame. Regardless of whose paws were dirtied by the death along the lakes edge, Thunderclan had been taught a lesson. Even if they had not been behind the lake deaths, they had become too puffed up along their borders. Now every clan knew their might. No matter who was behind the deaths, Shadowclan would be seen as a clan to avoid angering. There was no regret in her heart over the raid, no matter if Thunderclan had been at fault for the deaths. Still, she was able to find reasoning for their actions.

"Let all cats old enough to catch their own prey gather beneath the low branch!" The first few days after the raid she had spent inside the medicine cat den. But now she was ready to show that one less eye made her no less their clan leader.

Vultureheart gulped down her robin, bones and all. She'd have been happy to eat the feathers too, had they been digestible. The deputy did all she could to let the ones with greater needs eat first - the queens, the still-growing apprentices, Blackfang no matter how much he grumbled when offered first pick now - but at some point, she had to eat something in order to keep going. There wasn't much to choose from, but she made sure to still take the smallest piece. Is this punishment from StarClan? Do they know we were wrong to attack ThunderClan? If they do, then why don't they tell us who is really killing all these cats?

She jerked up her head as a yowl rang out over the camp, and saw Adderstar seated proudly atop the Lowbranch. Though down one eye now, her fierce gaze still raked the camp and every cat within it, and Vultureheart grinned at the sight. No, they were not being punished, and if they were, they weren't the only ones. Adderstar was recovering, she was still leader, and she would still lead ShadowClan through this dark time, and every dark time to come.

The black-furred she-cat glanced around at the cats that assmbled around her before their leader, paying special attention to those whose injuries were still raw. Everywhere she looked, though, there were fit warriors and proud young apprentices filling out the ranks as well. We are still strong, no matter what the lake takes from us, despite what the other Clans whisper to themselves to bolster their own feeble hearts. We are more than strong, we are victorious.

Thistletail laid near the warrior’s den, shredding a ball of moss with his claws. He was still annoyed that he hadn’t been chosen to participate in the last battle - it seemed that though he had been here for many moons, he still was not trusted here. He cursed the ThunderClan blood that ran through his veins.

So while his injured Clanmates recovered, he had been doing his best to hunt as often as he could. Prey wasn’t running well, however, and it was difficult for him to keep the fresh-kill pile as well-stocked as he may have preferred.

A loud yowl disrupted his thoughts, and he stood up, padding into the center of camp to better be able to see where Adderstar stood at the low branch.Her gaze swept across the Clan, and Thistletail shivered as he looked at the empty space where her eye had previously been. It was a somewhat disturbing wound, but he had no doubt that his leader would wear it with pride - she would probably claim that it made her look more threatening or something.

He still hadn’t heard all of the details of the raid, so he was looking forward to hearing what Adderstar had to say - all he knew was what he had overheard his Clanmates saying, and that Adderstar was down an eye. He had also heard about RiverClan doing something, but he didn’t know the nature of what exactly it was. His Clanmates seemed irritated whenever it was mentioned, though, so he wouldn’t be surprised if Adderstar made mention of it.

Blackfang's claws had itched as he'd watched the battle patrol head out into the night, Adderstar and Vultureheart at their head. But he had been ordered to guard the camp with Shrikestorm, and that was an honor in itself. No harm had come to those who had stayed behind. And now, having seen the wounds etched on the supposedly victorious side, the tom knew - if he had followed his will and accompanied the raiders, he would have died. He learned later that every Clan had shown up in ThunderClan's camp at some point or another, WindClan to aid their eternal allies, RiverClan to break up the fight with force. There was a body count, though he'd heard conflicting reports as to who was on it.

The tuxedo tom watched Adderstar prowl out from her den as he lay sunbathing outside the elder's den. She jumped up onto the Lowbranch easily, showing no sign that her newest injury was causing any loss of perception. In fact, as she surveyed the camp with her usual sharpness, Blackfang swore her empty eye socket was as piercing as it had ever been. The tabby let out her customary call to attention. For a brief moment, he considered just not moving - I can see fine from here, and I suppose I'm hardly wanted, I haven't caught prey in half a moon or more - but he shook his head firmly and pulled himself to his paws. Retirement was supposed to cure you of this, old man. Would Adderstar have left her camp in the paws of a hapless kit? I think not.

Shrikestorm sat curled up beside Crowheart in the warriors den. Orchidheart wasn’t too far away, a few nests over, her tail hiding her face. But she could hear her daughter’s soft snores and that put her mind at ease. The aftermath of the raid seemed surreal. Vultureheart had commanded camp for the most part, although, there were times Shrikestorm had to step in and give the deputy direction. Everyone seemed to be healing and moving forward but the she-cat still felt exhausted. All emotions seemed to have been sucked dry leaving her body to be nothing but a frail husk. She gently nuzzled her mate, breathing in his scent. No matter what the circumstance, the tom’s scent alone managed to soothe her frayed nerves. However, at Adderstar’s call, the she-cat hauled herself onto her paws. She waited for her mate to catch his bearings, her gaze glancing over at her daughter who was already walking out with a different warrior. The pair exchanged smiles but little more. They rarely needed to use words to communicate.

“Come on,” she whispered, her tail flicking toward the exit as she waited for Crowheart. She wondered if anyone would be made warrior. Perhaps Sagepaw and Asterpaw, she thought, thinking of the grey furred she-cats. Birchbelly would be proud. But, then again, perhaps Adderstar had a different subject in mind. It would be her first clan meeting since the raid and Shrikestorm couldn’t help but wonder what it was all about. She moved into the clearing, Crowheart at her side, and took a seat near the front, her tail curling over her paws.

Let all cats old enough to catch their prey gather for a clan meeting!

Asterpaw awoke with a start, her claws digging into her makeshift nest. The moons after the raid had left the apprentice with little sleep and severely exhausted. Her body felt like it had been filled with rocks and sand. Vultureheart had been running all those able-bodied ragged but she wasn’t complaining. In fact the she-cat had picked up even more patrols and went out hunting more frequently than her peers. She knew that Shadowclan needed to regain its strength and fast. There was no telling what the future may hold. Espeically when it came to Riverclan who suffered minimal damage. The grey apprentice glanced over her shoulder to see if any other apprentice was being left behind but it seemed like she was the last one. Asterpaw sighed and quickly tried to groom her frazzled fur but it was useless. No one is going to bother to look at me anyway, she thought and padded out into the clearing.

Cats were already grouped together and she sought out her mentor Birchbelly. After the raid the she-cat seemed to take on a more motherly approach to her and Asterpaw had never really minded it. If anything it’s what she needed in order to keep moving forward. ”Birchbelly,” she whispered in greeting, taking a seat. ”What’s this going to be about, you think?”

in some ways, cranefeather could sense before she'd even opened her eyes that a meeting would be called that morning. one didn't get to be as old as she had and not pick up on the signs; the gentle rustling and murmuring of cats as they gossiped amongst one another, the lack of morning patrols that weren't a cursory sweep of the borders, the general pull towards the centre of the camp. it's about time, she complained as she rose from her nest, taking the time to stretch each and every joint. adderstar still hadn't spread news of the recent raid due to her most recent injury, and no matter how much respect cranefeather had for the fierce she-cat, she was still impatient. the white she-cat took a second to fix her pelt with a rough tongue, removing any dust or bits of debris that may have buried there during her sleep. her nest was by far the closest to the centre of the den, being the oldest warrior there by quite a few moons, but she was careful and nimble as she stepped around the empty nests and sleeping bodies of cats looking to catch a few more minutes of shut-eye.

the air outside was slightly cooler as she exited the den, taking in the general din and hubbub of clan life. as she had suspected, adderstar was already up on the lowbranch, eying her clan below. even with one less eye, the leader was no less formidable a sight. in a lot of ways, cranefeather was immensely proud of that; and when that fierce yellow-green eye caught hers, she nodded in respect. she took her time finding a spot to sit down, knowing that it would take a while for the rest of the clan to settle in once she called for their presence, and instead focused on discerning what to eat in the fresh-kill pile no more than three tail-lengths away. cats around her looked towards her, no doubt trying to catch her attention, but she paid them no mind; if it really was important, they could come to her later. a particularly appetizing frog caught her attention, but whether it would still be here after the meeting was beyond her. perhaps she would ask vultureheart if she could join a hunting patrol later...

despite having expected it, adderstar's call still jolted her. "let all cats old enough to catch their own prey gather beneath the low branch!" cranefeather turned her attention to the clan leader once again, calming her racing heart in a slow couple of exhales. if this went according to successful battles in the past, there would be some sort of inspirational speech, some litany of their greatness, and perhaps a few apprentices gaining their warrior names. normally this sort of thing would have excited her, especially as a younger warrior, but she only felt tired. maybe she was getting too old for this. and now we sit and wait.

When I'm Wiser

Oakwhisker had been in the warriors den when he heard the shouting of Adderstar calling a clan meeting. He'd been about to fall asleep, but never mind. He got to his paws, gave himself a few quick, brisk licks and then headed outside, gathering under the lowbranch with the others.

The first cat he noticed was Cranefeather, his old mentor, who he sat beside and gently nudged as his way of greeting her. "Do you know what's going to happen in this meeting?" he whispered to her, peering over the heads of a few of his clanmates in front of him.

It was then that he noticed Vultureheart and he stared at her. Hopefully she would feel the gaze burning at her and turn around to look at him. A grin lit his face as he got ready to greet her when and if she did look at him. They'd had a nice chat not long ago and now he was constantly thinking of her and the things she had said. She was a very wise cat.

Focus on the meeting now, you idiot, he thought and once more, he looked up at Adderstar, waiting for her to announce whatever it was she was going to.

do you know what’s going to happen in this meeting? a familiar voice greeted her, prompting her to turn her head around to the source of the voice. it as none other than oakwhisker, her former apprentice. the young warrior had grown into himself quite well, she was fondly pleased to admit. while his pelt would always be familiar to her, he hardly looked anything like the excited, bumbling kit she had once mentored all those moons ago. his form had become leaner with age, his manners calmer with experience. it was just like watching her own kits grow. finchface and flametail were both senior warriors, now, with families and former apprentices of their own. time passed so quickly, it seemed. she couldn’t help but frown.

”hush, child. you’ll hear soon enough,”, she hissed, aware of the bitterness of her tone. oakwhisker had done nothing to warrant such a shortness from her; he’d only been his polite, curious self, wanting to make his presence known. she was getting too harsh with age, she knew, but it was getting more and more tiring to explain things to others.

the guilt sat heavy in her stomach at her words, but when she turned to take in the other warrior’s expression to see if she needed to apologize, she found he was already focused on something else. or someone else, cranefeather mused, following his line of sight. who was the lucky she-cat? she would learn soon enough, she supposed. ”it’s normally polite to listen to the responses of the questions you ask, oakwhisker,” she chided, but her tone was teasing and kind. she’d seen that look on his face many times before; had it herself, even. who was she to interrupt young, budding love?

Robinpaw shyly made their way towards the group of cats. He was distant; their eyes were always focusing somewhere else among the sparse bushes, brambles and thistles that lined the territory that he hesitated to call home. The apprentice did not know what to say or what to do; truth be told Robinpaw had never been one to care much about politics. As long as them, their loved ones or their friends were not killed needlessly and aimlessly. They simple stood there and watched from a distance for a long time, noticing Cranefeather and shuddering. He was supposed to be her apprentice, but truth be told he was terrified of the she-cat and her traditional ways. They feared they would be a disappointment, not only to her but to the whole Clan. Why did it always have to be this way? Why was there even a raid in the first place? Only the stars knew these things. Only the stars knew. He silently edged along the crowd and placed himself behind his mentor Cranefeather, muscled tensed in a kind of subdued anxiety.
