MinnowStar crept towards the Moonpool she hadn’t come here in five moons. She gently lapped up the water and said,” I know I haven’t been here in a while but I have come to make a request. I would like a mate.” She hesitated waiting to see if anyone could hear her and then she continued,” All the other queens say that it was the best choice they had ever made.” She finished and walked away hoping desperately that they would send her a mate.
A black tom pricked his ears, hearing the light tread of a cat nearby. He turned, and trotted towards the sound, “Hello?” He poked his head through the brush, and spotted a silver tabby she-cat looking his way, “Well, hello there beautiful.”
MinnowStar pricked her ears but didn’t move to see who the visitor was for she was pregnant with kits. Her mate entered the cave and walked towards her lay down next to her and affectionately licked her ears. She turned and said,” How much longer till you let me go on patrol? I’m dying to walk through the trees again.” He purred and said,” You need to think about the kits now, I’m sure they wouldn’t like to be jostled around as you get in a fight with a fox. Though I have no doubt that you would win.” She smiled and nodded closing her eyes to rest next to her mate.
