I could feel my heart racing. Spiderleg just told me he loved me. I didn't know what to say.I already have a mate!
"I-I-I don't know what to say..." I stuttered.
I could tell he was about to cry.
"D-Don't cry Spiderleg. I-I l-love you too." I confessed
His eyes got brighter but only for a heart beat.
"I was so scared that you would say that you only love Brackenfur." He worried
"To tell you the truth, we've been slipping apart for a while now. He said that he wanted kits,I still thought I was too young. I said no. And ever sense then we haven't really been mates." I told him.
"Then will you be my mate,Sorreltail?"Spiderleg asked me
"of corse! I love you so much!" I meowed
I decided to go hunting. I met Brackenfur on the way.
"Hi!" he greeted me warmly. Then his smile turned into a look of pure fear. "Why do you smell so strongly of Spiderleg?" He asked. I knew I had to tell him.
he- er... We're uh- mates now. I said yes because I know that you-"
"Just stop talking." He cut me off. I felt my heart break,but I love Spiderleg and I know he loves me.
"I- I'm really sorry." I told him. He just brushed past me.
"Hey!" Spiderleg called me over. I walked over to him. He licked me between the ears.
"Want to hunt?" He asked.
"Sure!" I answered eagerly. I soon scented a vole. I got into my hunter's crouch,and quickly caught it. It was young and plump and big and looked really juicy!
"Great catch!" spiderleg praised me. He had gotten a thrush. When we were walking back to camp. He saw a big bird,it had a worm in it's mouth which meant it had eggs! We quickly climbed into the tree. We decided I would take the girl bird and he would get the boy. I unsheathed my claws as we went to the branch the birds were on. I pounced on my bird at the same time Spiderleg did. I saw it then. There were four baby birds! I quickly killed all of them. We took them home and knew,we loved each other.
