Gray Wing's PoV
- Gray Wing is at Fourtrees staring at the grave of those who died in the Great Battle. It has been a moon since it happened, but he can still remember the screeches of fighting cats. The tom sorrowfully realizes that in the future, nobody will know this clearing is a grave. Gray Wing promises that he'll remember those who died here, and Turtle Tail, who died alone in Twolegplace, too. He begins to groom himself and notes that though his wounds are fully healed, the scars in his heart will never heal. The gray tom sighs that so much has changed, inside and out. Gray Wing barely feels as if he can lead the group alongside Tall Shadow when he doesn't have his mate with him.
- River Ripple appears and sits down beside him. The silver tabby says that he never thought he'd see such death there, and this is his first time back there. Gray Wing nods, remembering the hope of the cats who had come from the mountains in search of a better home. He realizes that so many of them had been led to their deaths, reciting their names in his head. River Ripple tells the gray tom that he should stop coming here day after day, as the grave will be covered in flowers and grass soon. Gray Wing asks how the tom knew he'd been visiting if it was his first time back. He replies that he may be a loner, but he sees what all cats do. River Ripple adds that Gray Wing needs to stop tormenting himself, and to go back to the cats who love him.
