Stormstar walks out of the leaders den the next morning, her fur ruffled and eyes tired then sits down at her dens entrance and begines to groom her matted fur.
She glances up as she hears paw-steps appoaching and sees her deputy, Tanglescar.
"Morning Stormstar" he dipped his head with respet. "I just sent out the morning patrols and hunters.
Stormstar nodded, "very good Tanglescar, and what about Parchheart and Sparrowbeak? Are they still in the camp?"
Tanglescar nodded,yet his ear twitched in curiousity. "Yes Stormstar, they are but why does it matter?" Tanglescar asked.
Stormstar met his eyes. "It matters because if they werent in the camp, they would kill me for doing the ceremony during there absense." A humorous gleam lit in Stormstars green eyes as she stood and padded towards the high rock.
Stormstar leaped on it with her powerful back legs, her eyes gleamed with confidence, and her once so frail-looking body seemed to ripple with her powerful hind legs and a bright light reflected off her fur.
"All cats who are old enough to catch there own prey, join here beneath the highrock for a clan meeting!" She called.
Stormstar waited patiently as cats appreared from all directions. Once everyone was gathered, she began to speak.
"Birchpaw and Darkpaw, you both have been nothing but two of the most loyalet StormClan apprentaces I have ever known. Now its time for one of your best moments."
Stormstar stands taller, as a light shines down on the two aprentaces. And her mighty voice echoes through the clearing. "I, leader of StormClan, call upon our warrior ancestors to look down on these two apprentces, they have worked hard to understand the ways of your warrior code and I commend them to warriors in your turn!"
Stormstar meets the eyes of first Birchpaw then Darkpaw.
"Do you Birchpaw and Darkpaw, promise to uphold the warrior code, to protect and defend this clan, even at the cost of your lives?" Stormstar quiered.
"I do" Birchpaw agreed, his voice reminded her of his father Tanglescar, and a reminder to the clan that one day, he might be just like his father.
"I do" Darkpaw echoed him, Stormstar saw Darkpaws eyes shine with excitement and happiness that he was made a warrior with his best friend.
"Then by the powers vested in me, granted by StarClan, I give you your warrior names! Darkpaw, from this day forward you will be called Darkblaze, StarClan honors your loyalty and bravery! And Birchpaw, from this day forward you will be known as Birchjumper, StarClan honors your consideration and iintelligence! May StarClan welcome you both as full warriors of StormClan!
