- Pain periced Creekfrost's heart as memories flooded back to him, when they were always together as kits, when they grew apart as adults, when he tracked Talonfang and found her meeting secretly with Fireheart, Talonfang scarring him for life, declaring he and the Clan would die under her claws...
- Creekfrost stepped back, removing his paw from her throat. Talonfang's eyes flashed open, and she leaped to her paws, green eyes glittering with surprise.
- "What are you doing?" Creekfrost shook his head. "You may have scarred me, changed me, almost killed me. But you're my sister,, I will never let anyone hurt you, and even though you don't feel the same, I still love you," he paused, eyes clouded with grief.
- Talonfang's eyes softened, just a little. "Creekfrost...""Now go!" Creekfrost bluntly cut her off, taking a step forward, claws unsheathed. "Go on, get out of here! And never come back!" Talonfang backed away, tail between her legs.
- "Are you sure...?"
- Creekfrost glared at her. "Go. And never come back." Talonfang backed off a little more, then turned quickly and disappeared into the undergrowth.Relief washed over Creekfrost's pelt.
- The Clan was safe, he was safe, and Talonfang was safe.
- Did I do the right thing?
