Because everyone hates when there is a chapter with just alliances, I'm going to put in the prologue as well.



And who's going to stop me?

The forest swayed gently in the breeze. The starry pool sat in a clearing. A white she-cat stood over the pool, staring into its depths. All was silent and peaceful, but the she-cat seemed to be angry.

Another she-cat – this one blue-grey – padded into the clearing. She stopped dead at the sight of the other cat.

"So, this is what you call honor and loyalty?" the white she-cat sneered.

"I am not to take responsibility for their actions," the other she-cat replied, "They act on their own accord. I am nothing to do with this."

"Could you at least not have told them not to?" the white she-cat hissed, "That piece of fox dung needs guiding, and you don't appear to be doing your job very well."

"We both know it had to happen," the grey she-cat reasoned.

"Quite right."

The two she-cats turned to see a brown tabby tom enter the clearing. He nodded in greeting to them both.

"It has to happen because it is destiny. Without the events of tonight, the clans have no hope of survival," the tom meowed, "We have to do what is right."

"Your one to talk," the white she-cat argued, "You're even worse than her." She indicated the grey she-cat with her tail.

"I agree that he clearly doesn't know a thing about trust," the grey she-cat meowed, "But we must not argue. We have a guest coming, remember."

As if on queue, the starry pool started to ripple. The three cats stood back, it began to glow. The water parted, and a small, shiny shape emerged and stepped onto land.

A kit.

The she-kit blinked at the three cats, her blue eyes filled with wisdom beyond its age. She ruffled her cream tabby fur and stretched. The three cats stared at the kit, filled with curiosity.

The kit let out a purr of amusement. "You three are so fascinated with me, it's hilarious. But to be fair, none of you have ever seen anything like me before," she meowed, "You can call me… Shimmerkit. I like that name. Then I'll be Shimmerpaw. And then I'll be…" she looked thoughtful and then cheekily added, "Shimmersky." She winked at the three cats. They stared back at her, dumbfounded.

"So what are you going to do?" the white she-cat asked.

"I'll wander in places that no cat has ever walked before," she replied, "And occasionally stray into the real world."

"The real world?" the tom asked in disbelief.

"Don't worry. I'll be there, but not there, if you know what I mean," the kit said elusively, "Anyway, there is no way I'm going to watch Lightkit grow up without getting to know her."

"I don't think you should be allowed to do that," the grey she-cat meowed.

"And who's going to stop me?" the kit pointed out.

The three cats stayed silent, with no way to answer.

"Well, before I head off, remember the prophecy," the kit meowed, "The evil from within the earth will be faced by the stolen dawn. But only what could have been will be able to defeat it."

And with those final words, she padded into the forest and vanished.

Strange, huh? It's the prologue, so it's meant to be.

Any questions can be asked in a review (hint hint) but if it's about secrets of the plot then I will probably answer with just "You'll find out!"

Hope you like the story so far. Chapter 1 is coming soon!
