Bramblepaw and Firestar are walking back to camp, Firestar mentions Bramblepaw's hunting skills. Firestar and Greystripe begin to talk and Greystripe says how he couldn't find anything but a mouse. Firestar notices Sorrelkit, the most adventurous out of Willowpelt's current three kits, is talking to Darkstripe. He mentions how odd it is how Darkstripe has never shown interest in kits before.
Firestar suddenly hears a sharp exclamation from Greystripe and he races past Firestar. Firestar sees Sorrelkit drop to the floor and Greystripe attack Darkstripe. Firestar runs to Sorrelkit's side and orders for Bramblepaw to get Cinderpelt. Firestar comforts Sorrelkit as she opens her mouth to reveal deathberries inside.
Firestar remembers how Yellowfang killed her son with deathberries. Firestar scooped the deathberries from Sorrelkit's mouth. Sorrelkit is in spasms and Firestar can still hear Greystripe and Darkstripe fighting.
Cinderpelt arrives and praises Firestar for getting rid of the deathberries in Sorrelkit's mouth. Cinderpelt gives Sorrelkit yarrow, to make her sick. Most of the deathberries have been removed from her system as Willowpelt comes to comfort over her sick kit.
Firestar is still worried if the poison could affect Sorrelkit further. He goes to Greystripe and Darkstripe and asks what is going on. Greystripe accuses Darkstripe of feeding Sorrelkit deathberries, and Darkstripe says he was trying to stop Sorrelkit from eating them. Darkstripe says he already knows what side Firestar will be on, so Firestar decides to wait until Sorrelkit wakes up to hear the truth.
