the cries of battle have finally subdued. thunderclan return to their rightful territory as riverclan retreat to their own, accepting defeat. windclan savour their small victory while shadowclan tries to comprehend the gains and losses they have been given. all four clans lick their wounds and collect their thoughts as they adjust to the new normal. yet, overhead starclan continue to whisper, and make a final decision: it is time for skyclan to rejoin the forest.
This pond is on Riverclan's side of the border, yet can be seen from the banks of Thunderclan. It is a pond that freezes solid in the winter. At it's deepest, waters go just above the height of an average cat. The pond has been spoken of in fairytales, some of which say that it has a curse laid upon it by Starclan. One story tells of poison that was let slip into the waters, or perhaps another tells of a warrior's last stand and subsequent death by the edge of the lake. Of course, many warriors have dismissed the tales about the pond, but what's the harm in superstition?
