Prologue: The Tale of Friends
Silver comes out of the nursery smiling at how much she’s enjoying the sunlight. She walks around for a while looking around the camp without returning to the nursery for the first time. She walks around the edge of the camps main barrier still not allowed to go outside the camp for a few days.
As she walks around she heard a rustling in a bush. She froze and stared at the bush imagining it was a badger, when a brown tabby cat jumped out. They quickly tackled her, causing her to squeak from fright. The other cat on top of her laughed.
“Got you!” The other cat cried triumphantly.
She started to wiggle, trying to get away. The other cat looked at her and said, “I think we should be friends. My name is Brownleaf. What’s yours?”
Silver looked at her for a second before answering quietly “Silver.” Brownleaf looked at her with a grin.
“I think we’ll make great friends!”
Brownleaf stays on top of Silver grinning when Silver spoke up “Can you get off please?” Brownleaf looks at her for a second before remembering she was on top of Silver “Oh I’m so sorry guess I was so excited from getting a new friend I forgot.” Brownleaf got off of Silver. Silver got up and looked at her “Well I guess since I have nothing to do I’ll hang out with you.”
Brownleaf grinned and lead Silver to a large tree. “This is where I go to think and stuff. And where I take my friends to hang out at.” She thinks for a second and looks up. “Can I tell you something?” Silver nods “Well your actually my first friend. Most people don’t like how I practically attack people for a friend.” Silver is quiet for a while before saying “Well your my first friend as well so I guess we have a lot in common already.” Brownleaf grins “That’s the spirit!”
Silver continues to hang out with Brownleaf for the next few days as she shows Silver everything in the camp. When Silver is finally allowed outside Brownleaf gets excited and looks at Silver “Then what are you waiting for!” She exclaims before heading towards the entrance. The two guards at the entrance look at them “Where are you going?” Brownleaf looks at them “Well Silver here has never been outside the camp and finally is allowed to even if we have to get back before dark.” The guards look at her for a second more “Okay but don’t go past the border.” Brownleaf grinned and walked away with Silver following.
Once out of sight of the guards Brownleaf looks at Silver and motions to a large oak tree in a clearing. She grins “Race you to that tree though no one has beat me in a race.” Silver grins as well “Well I guess it’s time for you to meet your match.” Brownleaf faces the tree and starts running towards the tree. Silver waited a second before following her and barely making it to the tree before Brownleaf she looked at the brown tabby grinning “Well that was fun see you at the top” and starts to climb the tree already on the lowest branch Brownleaf looks at her “Hey wait for me!” she starts climbing as well.
She reaches the top branch to see Silver already there waiting on the branch. They look over the forest watching several large birds flying around. Silver looks around before saying “I hope well stay friends forever.” Brownleaf looks at her “Don’t worry well be together forever. Friends to the end right.” Silver looks at her and smiles “Friends to the end.”
