Dovewing returns from a hunting patrol with Hazeltail and Thornclaw. On the way into the camp, she bumps into Brambleclaw. Inside the camp, there's a wellfed looking black sitting in the middle of the clearing. She asks Brambleclaw who it is, and he explains that it's Sol. Dovewing shows recognition. Mousefur had told her stories about him before. Despite most cats being excited to see Sol, Dovewing senses that not everyone is grateful to have him back. Purdy greets Sol with enthusiasm, while Mousefur hisses and threatens him. Ivypool asks Dovewing if she saw anything on the ShadowClan border.
Firestar sends out extra hunting patrols, and the clan gets to have a nice meal that night. While eating, Dovewing sees Sol telling stories to the apprentices. His stories are so outrageous that the apprentices continue to listen to him long after their bedtimes.
