Chapter description

Just before all the Clans get ready to part to their new territories, Brambleclaw thinks on how the Clans had become one for this journey. While watching all the cats say their respective goodbyes, he compares it to how a battle could be - except that there were no enemies. Firestar had asked for Brambleclaw to watch over his Clanmates and make sure no cat gets left behind as they travel to their new territory. While watching Mousefur say goodbye to Heavystep from RiverClan, he notes how frail Mousefur had become, assuming she should join the elder's. He reminds the frail cat they needed to get going, and she gives Heavystep a friendly lick before watching him leave to join his own Clan.
Almost running into Squirrelflight, she exasperatedly tells him that she had just been looking for him. Following her, they meet up with Tawnypelt and Crowfeather, where they've gathered to say they're respective goodbyes. Squirrelflight notes how they're journey is at it's end, and Brambleclaw feels a pierce in his heart, knowing she's right. Reminiscing on their journey, he notes how close he feels with all of them, and wonders if his relationship with Squirrelflight will continue to be as strong as it is. He touches his nose with his friends, and they all share a moment of quiet before Crowfeather mentions that it should be six of them saying goodbye, not four. The painful memory of Feathertail sacrificing herself for the Tribe and Stormfur staying with the Tribe leaves the remaining cats mourning. Tawnypelt eventually gives herself a shake, and comments on how she should head back to her Clan. Crowfeather follows suite, wishing the two ThunderClan cats a safe travel. Brambleclaw notes that WindClan and ThunderClan will be traveling together, but Crowfeather reminds him they must stay with their own Clans. Brambleclaw is disgruntled by Crowfeather's cynical outlook, but Squirrelflight redirects him to meet back with their Clanmates.
