- It is three moons after Firestar's return to ThunderClan, and he comes back to camp, Brambleclaw and Mousefur in tow on the dawn patrol. The tom tells them to rest, as they are to go to the Gathering that night. Firestar takes a few moments to watch Rainpaw, Sootpaw, and Sorrelpaw wrestle until Thornclaw calls Sootpaw away. The ginger tom then goes to the nursery and asks Cinderpelt if everything is okay; she answers that it is, and that she has given Sandstorm borage. He enters the nursery, where he sees his mate in a nest with their two she-kits, one tabby with a white chest and paws, and one dark ginger.
- Brightheart's kit, Whitekit, is watching them, and Brightheart warns her daughter to be cautious around the two newborn kits. Sandstorm tells Firestar that she had thought of names for their kits: Squirrelkit and Leafkit. The tom accepts the names; Squirrelkit for the ginger's bushy tail, and Leafkit after Leafstar and perhaps Spottedleaf. He wishes his daughters good hunting and the like, and he thinks about his relationship with ThunderClan. This makes him remember Skywatcher's prophecy; Firestar wonders if his kits have anything to do with it, and contemplates if it foresaw good or evil.
