Chapter Summary

Hollyleaf's PoV

Hollyleaf, Lionblaze, and Jaypaw have decided to help ShadowClan. The three ThunderClan cats, along with Dawnpaw, Tigerpaw, and Flamepaw, make their way to ShadowClan's territory, although they notice how weak the borders and scent markers are along the way. While Hollyleaf agrees with helping make a fake sign from StarClan, in order to convince Blackfoot to return to being leader and to exile Sol, she worries that Blackfoot will take their help the wrong way, and cause a rift in between ThunderClan and ShadowClan.
Hollyleaf and the other soon reach the marshy territory of ShadowClan, and the black she-cat asks Jaypaw, her brother, if he has a plan. He tells her to be quiet, so he can think properly and come up with an idea. The six cats stay silent, but their quiet moment is broken by Jaypaw, who asks if any of the trees in the marsh are able to be knocked over. Hollyleaf flexes her claws, wondering if Jaypaw has gone nuts, but doesn't speak her concerns. Lionblaze speaks instead, saying that he'll go and check the marshland for any trees, and he trots off into the water.
Lionblaze soon returns, saying that he could feel roots beneath his paws around multiple trees. He believes that with a bit of digging, Hollyleaf and the others could manage to make these trees collapse, although Hollyleaf is confused as to why Jaypaw would want them to do that. Jaypaw's sightless blue eyes gleam in excitement, and he says that they are going to fool ShadowClan into thinking that their territory is falling all around them. He sends Hollyleaf and Lionblaze towards two saplings, and tells them that while they need to be dug up, he doesn't want them falling until he gives the signal.
