Chapter Summary

Third-person Omniscient PoV

On a cold, snowy night, a large tom, Oakheart, takes two kits into the RiverClan nursery. The queen inside, Graypool, asks whose kit's they were when Oakheart asks if she would take care of them. He tells her he found them in the forest and Graypool asks what kind of cat would leave her kits in the forest, especially in such snowy weather. Oakheart tells her it was possible it was rogues or Twolegs then tells her to please take them; her other kits had died and these would too without someone to look after them. Graypool agrees to take them, but still questions why a mother would leave her kits alone in the forest in leaf-bare. Oakheart says that he didn't steal the kits, and Graypool asks Oakheart if he is telling the whole truth. Oakheart states that he had told her all she needs to know and goes to find her fresh kill, despite Graypool's protests to tell her where the kits came from. Graypool licks the kits and finds a faint scent that she doesn't recognize. She sniffs again and she discovers that the two kits carry the scent of an enemy Clan.




  • Two unnamed kits[2]
  • Graypool's unnamed tabby kit[1]


  • Oakheart is mistakenly described as bracken-colored.[2]
