His paws lead him through the grass of the forest, his breathing uneasy and vision blurring. The stormy tiger striped tom took a painful swallow before gasping air again. The forest spun before him before the touch of earth and grass met his body and face. Choosing not to get up, the tom laid there in the shade-covered grass, focusing on his shallow breath. He could feel the blood of the multiple wounds from the battle trickling through his fur and found that he didn’t care. In a way, he had stopped caring a long time ago, when his sister Nightwind had died protecting him during a battle moons ago. Tears prickled up in the corner of his eyes and he closed them tightly. He had asked her to wait for him, but now he didn’t know she still was. “Nightwind.” Her name whispered out from his mouth. Briefly, the thought of his clan and clan mates went through his mind and he hoped that they were ok. He laid there oblivious to time when a soft wind ruffled his fur. Partially opening his eyes, the tom noticed starry paws of a transparent black cat with dark gray stripes running across its legs. His eyes widened when he noticed both starry front paws had a stripe of white on the middle toe and looked up to see a black tiger striped she cat with glowing gentle blue green eyes and a white star on the middle of her forehead. “Sister.” He breathed out, the tears beginning to well up in his eyes again.
“Hello Stormflash.” Nightwind said with a smile, though tears were also forming in her eyes.
“Is it time?” Stormflash asked, lifting his head off the ground slightly.
“Yeah, are you ready?” Nightwind replied, her starry tail moving slowly from side to side.
“I’ve been ready for a long time.” Stormflash replied with a smile “I’m sorry for making you wait.”
Nightwind shook her head. “I promised when we were kits remember? That we would wait for the other, no matter how long it took, and go to Starclan together.” Bringing her head down, Nightwind touched noses with her brother. “I didn’t mind waiting. I’m just glad you were able to go on without me there.”
“I still missed you, everything felt strange without you there.” Stormflash said, feeling his voice choke up as he felt his sister's nose on his. He closed his amber eyes once more and felt his breath leave his wounded body. When he opened his eyes again, the forest became unreal and faded as if covered in morning mist. He looked to see his starry body was no longer covered in cuts and blood.
“Shall we go?” Stormflash faced his sister again, who came forward and rubbed her face against his cheek, something she had done when she was alive.
“Yeah, lets go together.” Stormflash said with a grin. Both siblings then turned and padded away from where his still body was lying. They kept walking as the forest faded away and turned into the clear starlit night sky, where other Starclan cats waited to greet them.
