Goosefeather's Curse

Echosnout is an old medicine cat of RiverClan under Volestar's leadership.
She is at the Moonstone for the half-moon meeting with the other medicine cats. As Echosnout lowers herself onto the floor for the ceremony, she comments that she still thinks Goosepaw is too young to be at the Moonstone, reminding everyone that he is four moons old. She states that he should still be suckling at his mother's belly. Goosepaw recalls that Echosnout was Cloudberry's mentor when she was in RiverClan, and seems to think she can still boss her former apprentice around. Chiveclaw points out that if Cloudberry thinks that Goosepaw needs to begin training right away, then who are they are to argue. As Cloudberry and Goosepaw whisper to each other, Echosnout hisses for them to be quiet. Cloudberry whispers her apologies back.
After Goosepaw has his medicine cat ceremony and is renamed Goosefeather, Echosnout sniffs and mutters that she hopes he doesn't have any ideas about knowing better than the rest of the medicine cats. Cloudberry reassures that her apprentice knows that he'll never stop learning.
At a Gathering, Doestar announces that ThunderClan has three new litters of kits. Cloudberry comments that they are fit, but noisy. Echosnout snorts that in her day, kits knew when to stay quiet. Cloudberry reminds Echosnout that in her day she was one of the kits that she took care of, and she claims she doesn't remember being quiet at all. Echosnout just huffs and turns away.
