A small warrior fanficTadpole opened his eyes to see a white she-cat.
"Who are you!" he asked coughing up water.
"Shush little one"
"Your not my mama!" he yowled. The white she-cat nudged him.
"I saw your mama leave, she thinks you are dead. I saved you just in time but I must confess my sense of smell is broken, I couldn't track her." the she-cat meowed solemnly. Tadpole let out a depressed wail.
"I miss my mama!" he cried. The white cat licked him.
"I am Lilac, I will care for you, and help you find her."
Moons passed, and Lilac was true to her promise. They discovered the forest where Tadpole was born, but it was too late. There was no sign of any cats. Tadpole was now (however many moons mothwing/hawkfrost were when they left the forest ).
Lilac was getting old and couldn't travel anymore. Tadpole stayed with her until she passed away. Tadpole griefed. He lost Sasha and now Lilac, but he decided to continue his travels, hopefully to find Moth or Hawk.
He soon came by a barn with two loners.
