    • Gray Wing follows Turtle Tail, and sees a Twoleg monster looking over Storm's den. He calls for Storm, then when he gets no response, says he's going in.
  • Turtle Tail protests, but he enters and locks gazes with Storm for a second before a yellow monster takes a bite out of the wall.
    • Gray Wing leaps over to Storm and clears rubble off her, and beside her in the wreckage are three limp bodies of the kits she'd tried to protect.
    • Storm awakens, and says all she wanted to do was keep her kits safe. She tells Gray Wing to tell Clear Sky she's sorry.
  • Gray Wing finds that one of her kits is still alive, and he brings the tiny cat out of the den.
    • Gray Wing and Turtle Tail run away from the den, and he tells her that Storm is dead.
    • They take the kit back to the forest, and name him Thunder, since he was born of Storm.
  • Gray Wing and Turtle Tail meet some forest cats, who although hostile, escort Gray Wing to their camp.
    • Gray Wing explains what has happened to Storm, and presents Thunder to him as his son.
    • Clear Sky says to Gray Wing to take him away, and Gray Wing states that this is truly the end of their brotherhood because he's abandoning family.
  • They leave the forest, and once in the hollow, Tall Shadow asks who Thunder is.
    • Gray Wing explains the situation, and after some debate, the kit is allowed to stay.
    • He nuzzles Thunder, and says to the kit that from now on he will be his father.
