  • Leafpool is waiting for Crowfeather in the shelter of a holly bush. She pops out upon seeing Crowfeather, and asks him to wait.
  • Crowfeather asks Leafpool why she wants to see him.
  • She replies that it has been moons since she last spoke to him, and that there is something Leafpool thinks Crowfeather should know.
  • Crowfeather reminds Leafpool that they are in different Clans.
  • She asks why he's being like this, and she reminds Crowfeather that it was hard for her too. Leafpool tells him she didn't have a choice, since Cinderpelt died in the badger attack, leaving her as the only ThunderClan medicine cat.
  • He says that she did have a choice, and says that they shouldn't be talking like this, and his Clanmates have only just begun to trust him again, mostly thanks to Nightcloud.
    • Leafpool asks why.
  • Crowfeather tells her that Nightcloud had his kits last moon, and Onestar was going to announce it at the next Gathering.
  • Leafpool is stunned, and replies quietly that she hadn't known.
  • Crowfeather asks her what she thought he would do, and that Nightcloud is a good mother and a great cat.
  • Leafpool tells him that he was right, and they had nothing to say to each other now, and say good-bye.
  • Brambleclaw, Cloudtail, and Berrypaw appear before they can leave.
  • They ask Leafpool if she's alright, and she replies that she's fine.
    • Berrypaw remembers that Crowfeather was the one that ran off with Leafpool after the badger attack.
  • A WindClan patrol arrives, and starts threatening the ThunderClan patrol.
  • Tornear and Harepaw exchange insults with Berrypaw and Cloudtail, but eventually Onestar and Brambleclaw move on with their patrols.
  • Leafpool tells Brambleclaw she can make it back to camp by herself, and then says quietly to herself, "Good-bye, Crowfeather. I hope we don't regret that we didn't speak today."
