Collab One Chapter Two
Brightflower hissed and unsheathed her claws. " Fine." She leaped onto the ginger she-cat, whose pelt glowed like it was in flames, and whose ice-blue eyes gleamed with anger. She gasped as the she-cat whipped a two-foot-long sword out of a moose hide sheath tied around her back. "Is that what you call fair fighting?" She hissed, dodging a swipe that came close to her head.
" Who says that I fight fairly?" The ginger she-cat retorted. She turned her head to the she-cat that had been traviling with her. "Shoneko! Look out!" She yowled as Sandfur, Brightflower's clanmate, tried to rake his claws down the small white she-cat's flank.
' Shoneko? What an odd name.' Brightflower thought. She suddenly realized that she had an opening to attack as the ginger she-cat focused on Shoneko. "Mrrrrrrrooow!" She yowled as she swiped her claws down the she-cat's muzzle. Tiny beads of blood began to form in her clawmarks' tracks.
" Ronguteru!" Shoneko shreiked as the ginger she-cat wailed from the blow. she turned to the gray-and-white tabby who had sliced down her littermates' muzzle. " You dirty rat!" She hissed as she raked her claws down the tabby's spine.
" Sandfur! I need a little help over here!" Brightflower barked at her clanmate as Shoneko and Ronguteru closed in on her. She lashed out with her claws, in hope that they would back off.
That was not the case, however, it just made Ronguteru more angry. She pinned the tabby down. " If you would let us go, we would finish making our way out of your territory!" She snapped in her face.
" Would never let enemy clan warriors go!" Sandfur yowled, shoving Ronguteru off of Brightflower. He had no trouble pinning her down. " Pin the other one, Brightflower!" He screeched at his clanmate.
Brightflower rushed over behind Shoneko's back, slamming her paw into one of her hind leg's tendons. Shoneko felt her legs buckle. Brightflower held her down, and hissed into her face, " What clan are you from?"
" What are you talking about?" Shoneko spat back. " I don't know anything about these 'enemy clans' you are talking about!"
"You'd better cough up were you're from, or we have the right to take you to Desertstar!" Sandfur growled to Ronguteru. "And he won't be pleased."
Ronguteru struggled in his firm grip. " We're serious! We have no idea what you're talking about!" Her ice-blue gaze burned into Sandfur's blazing green. " Let us go!"
Sandfur glared at her. " Take them to camp." He snapped to Brightflower without looking up. " We'll let Desertstar deal with them." He grabbed Ronguteru by the scruff, dragging her to her paws. "Let's go." He began to pad towards the DesertClan camp.
"No!" Shoneko spat. " We don't have to go to any camp or talk to any 'Desertstar'! We're leaving!" she whipped herself around, only to be stopped by Brightflower.
" Oh, no, you're coming with us, even if I have to drag you." She hissed. And she did. Sandfur and Brightflower hauled the tresspassers all the way to the DesertClan camp.
Ronguteru scowled at the ground as she and her sister, Shoneko, flanked by two 'warriors' Sandfur and Brightflower, were taken to the 'DesertClan' camp.
" Stop." Sandfur commanded as they padded through a bramble thicket. "Desertstar!" He yowled, just before walking out of the bushes.
They arrived in a clearing where rocks jutted high into the sky. Multiple cats stood, wide-eyed and whispering to each other as they continued farther in to the camp. A dark gray tom and a black she-cat came trotting up to them. " What happed, Sandfur?" They asked.
" These two cats were tresspassing on our territory. Have you seen Desertstar, Hollyberry?" Sandfur asked the black she-cat. Her eyes glittered like brown stones.
" Um, I think so. He was in his den last I saw him." Hollyberry replied. She turned to the dark gray tom. " Have you seen him, Siltfur?"
Siltfur's ears flicked. " That's where I saw him last, too." He turned to Brightflower. " Hey, sister!" He greeted. " Catusflight was looking for you earlier. He said that Dewleaf had something to say to you."
"I'll speak to her, then." Brightflower meowed in a dismissing tone. " But, right now, I have to take these..." She turned her head to look at Shoneko and Ronguteru. "...Delinquents... To Desertstar."
A low growl rumbled in Ronguteru's throat. "We're not delinquents!" She hissed, glaring at Brightflower. "Are we, Shoneko?"
" You are while you're DesertClan prisoners!" Brightflower retored. She turned towards the outside of Desertstar's den, where Sandfur stood impatiently. "Come on." She hissed. She nudged the two sisters forward.
Shoneko and Ronguteru gulped as they grew closer to the mouth of the den, which was huge. "I-I'm scared." Shoneko whisered to Ronguteru.
"Don't be." Ronguteru meowed back. But, there was fear in her mew, for she was just as scared as Shoneko.
Sandfur smiled as they approached. " Are you ready to meet Desertstar?" He hissed in Ronguteru's ear. " Because he's ready to meet you."
And then, he opened the gigantic door of brambles, and the four cats padded into the den.
