- Leafstar stands watching in horror as SkyClan is ravaged by a flood. She asks StarClan for help, but can only watch as her Clanmates are washed away, one by one. She watches Clan kits, elders, and warriors vanish. As she herself gets taken away by the water, she is jolted awake, and realizes that it's only a dream, and SkyClan is perfectly fine. Leafstar reflects upon her time as SkyClan's leader, and when she had been nothing more than a loner named Leaf. Leafstar thinks of Firestar, and wonders if he still remembers SkyClan.
- As Leafstar emerges from her den, she spots Cherrytail, Sparrowpelt, and Shrewtooth near the fresh-kill pile, getting something to eat. She remarks that she'll need to make sure that Shrewtooth knows he's welcome.
- Looking around the camp, Leafstar sees the Clan elders, Lichenfur and Tangle, although the latter of the two is not a permanent member of SkyClan. Leafstar hopes that Lichenfur can convince the other elder to stay in SkyClan. She also remembers when Waspwhisker, another warrior, joined SkyClan. She reflects that he was nothing more than a kittypet, mewling with hunger. He now has a mate, Fallowfern, and four kits, by the names of Nettlekit, Plumkit, Rabbitkit, and Creekkit. She watches the kits play for a brief moment, and continues on her way, only to run into Echosong, the Clan's medicine cat.
- After a brief talk with Echosong to inform her of the upcoming ceremony for some of the Clan apprentices, she is approached by Sharpclaw, SkyClan's deputy. Although she is reluctant to start the warrior ceremonies without the entire Clan, Sharpclaw persuades her otherwise, and Tinypaw, Rockpaw, and Bouncepaw become warriors, with the names Tinycloud, Rockshade, and Bouncefire.
- After the warrior ceremony, Leafstar goes to talk with Fallowfern, who mentions that her kits are getting out of paw. Leafstar assures the queen that they will be apprentices soon enough, and their mentors will deal with them. Although hyper and rowdy, the four kits are soon calmed down by Clovertail, who promises to tell the kits the story of when Firestar came to re-create SkyClan. As she walks away, she remembers Firestar, Sandstorm, Rainfur, and another cat who helped with SkyClan, Skywatcher. She promises Skywatcher's memory that she will keep SkyClan alive and well.
