Chapter 2

  • Gray Wing's point of view.
  • Wind Runner and Gray Wing argue over whether or not to start a fight between Clear Sky's cat and themselves.

    • Gray Wing spots him and warmly tells him that he had grown.
  • He then asks why Thunder had left the forest, but before Thunder can answer, Frost limps into camp, and Hawk Swoop explains why they left. This reassures Gray Wing that Thunder isn't a spy.

  • Gray Wing asks again why Thunder left, but takes him just outside camp for the answer.
    • Thunder and Gray Wing discuss Clear Sky's cruelty and Thunder tries to tell his uncle that they must either defend their borders or convince Clear Sky to stop taking land, or he will take everything.
    • Gray Wing agrees to try to reason with his brother.
  • They reenter the camp and Gray Wing tells Tall Shadow his plan, and she questions his safety.

    • The group gathers around him, and explains his plan.
      • Cloud Spots voices his concerns about doing it so soon and Thunder agrees with him.
  • Gray Wing climbs into his nest, soon joined by Turtle Tail and her kits.
    • Jagged Peak offers the kits prey, which they eagerly eat.
  • Just as Gray Wing begins to fall asleep, he hears Pebble Heart crying out, clearly having a dream.
    • Pebble Heart mews that kin shouldn't be fighting and that he and his siblings were all alone.

  • Thunder's point of view.
  • Thunder walks back to camp, carrying a mouse.

    • Frost asks if he will survive and Cloud Spots assures him he will.
  • Thunder pads out of the den and sees Jagged Peak playing with Owl Eyes and Sparrow Fur.

Chapter 4

  • Gray Wing's point of view.
    • Tall Shadow reports that she had formally welcomed Wind Runner and Gorse Fur.
    • He notices Thunder behind her, bristling, and agrees to join the she-cat at the rock in a minute.
  • When asked what was bothering him, Thunder tells Gray Wing that Wind Runner was teaching the kits to fight.
    • Gray Wing, confused as to why this is a bad thing, tells his nephew that they must be prepared, in case talking with Clear Sky doesn't work.
  • Tall Shadow calls Gray Wing back over to her, and Wind Runner tells him she is expecting kits.
    • Gray Wing warmly congratulates her, but Wind Runner worries that her kits will be resented, as they will be extra mouths to feed, then suggesting that they leave after Tall Shadow mutters that it was a bad time for kits to be born.
    • Gray Wing strongly protests, saying that Wind Runner has earned her place many times and her kits will be raised by the rest of the group as if they were their own.
