Ever had an awesome secret that you couldn't tell anybody? Well, I have.
One day, Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Love and Beauty (lots of capitals there), came to me while I was sleeping in the woods. Why I was sleeping there, I don't quite remember. Please don't ask. Seriously, don't ask.
Anyway. She came to me, and when I woke up, I was so startled by her that I accidentally clawed her. She then proceded to turn me into heart candy, but changed me back later.
Oh yeah, and she also gave me the gifts to control emotions. Which emotion was I most powerful over? Love.
"Sweetsoul!" Called the grouchy tom, Dustfur. Padding outside, the first thing I saw was his scowl.
"Why weren't you up earlier?" He asked me. I didn't respond.
"Sunfur." He mumbled. And that was the last straw.
My fur was, fur some reason, a creamy-blonde color. Because of that, cats sometimes called me Sunfur. I hated it.
"Look me in the eyes, Dustfur." I growled. He obeyed.
I transmitted mental codes into Dustfur's brain. He was now going to be in big, big love with a bush in the camp. That would teach him.
Finally, when I was done, Dustfur suddenly yelped. Running to the bush, he yelled "BABY I LOVE YOU! YOU ARE THE SUNSHINE THAT WAKES ME UP IN THE MORNING! I WANT TO SPEND THE REST OF MY LIFE WITH YOU! WE'LL WAKE UP IN THE MORNING, DRINK COFFEE, WHATEVER THAT IS, TOGETHER, AND, AND—I LOVE YOU!"
Everyone looked over to Dustfur, giving him weird looks. The looks got even weirder when Dustfur jumped on the bush and started sharing tongues with it. The looks were the weirdest when the bush started sharing tongues back (just kidding!)
I walked away, my work being done.
Yep, I loved having my gift. It made me feel all tingly inside. Like root beer. Wait...does that make sense?
Who cares. Walking on, I padded back into the Warriors Den for some well-earned sleep.
What Sweetsoul didn't know was that, somewhere on the far side of the world, a creature was being awakened, ready to kill again. And it was being fuled by Sweetsoul's power.
