    Darkjay rolled over in her nest. The nursery was dark, as it was midnight, but she couldn’t sleep. Having a belly swollen with kits didn’t help. Finally, she gave up trying to sleep and heaved herself to her feet. Stepping as lightly as she could manage, she walked out into the main camp area and sat under the ferns by the medicine den. Silverpelt shone in the night sky, and a sliver of moon lit the camp between the sharp shadows. Sighing, Darkjay sank onto the cool ground, hoping she would sleep better under the open sky.

    Bluefire came back from her midnight hunt with a squirrel in her jaws. She dropped it into the fresh-kill pile. As she was heading back to the warriors den, she saw Darkjay sleeping near the medicine den. The warrior stifled a purr of amusement. Even as an apprentice, Darkjay had always preferred sleeping in the open. Bluefire watched her former apprentice for a few more moments, then padded back into the warriors den, hoping no one would notice the mint she’d rubbed into her fur to disguise the scent of the real reason she’d left camp that night.

    Lightningshard’s ears pricked. He’d had trouble sleeping, and had lain awake most of the night, so he heard the exact moments when Bluefire left and returned. But she’d night-hunted before. He wasn’t particularly worried. He tried to fall back asleep when his former apprentice settled into the nest, but his thoughts kept drifting back to Darkjay. She hadn’t been well lately, and considering that she was close to kitting, that wasn’t good. He knew for a fact she hadn’t spoken to the medicine cat. He’d have to talk to Wrenfeather himself. Tomorrow. He rolled over, finally finding sleep.

    As dawn touched the treetops, the pained cries of a kitting queen roused the camp in a heartbeat.

        Darkjay and Lightningshard curled around their five tiny kits. Thankfully, nothing had gone wrong with the kitting.
        “I think we should name this one Frostkit,” Lightningshard suggested, flicking an ear at a night-black tom with ice-blue eyes.
        “This one is Mellowkit,” Darkjay announced, her tail brushing the back of a grey she-kit with very dark jay-blue eyes.
        “Hmm. Goldenkit for this one.” Lightningshard’s paw prodded a small golden tom with jagged dark grey tabby stripes and jay-blue eyes. “And Solarkit for this one.” The other golden tom had jagged stripes were silver and her eyes ice-blue. Both stared at the final kit: a dark silver she-kit with a night-black tail and jay-blue eyes, the bottom half of one being ice-blue. Darkjay pondered a name. Finally, one came to her.
        “Sheerkit.” She had no idea why that name felt… right for the little kit.
        “Sheerkit,” Lightningshard repeated. “I like it.”
        “Frostkit, Mellowkit, Goldenkit, Solarkit, and Sheerkit.” Darkjay called Bluefire into the den where she was waiting outside. “I assume you heard the names?”
        “Yes, all beautiful names for your kits,” Bluefire complimented. Darkjay purred. Lightningshard curled his tail around hers.
        “I have a feeling they’re going to do bit things, these kits,” Darkjay murmured.

    Wrenfeather picked up some herbs. She dropped it at Darkjay’s paws. “Eat these. The borage will help with your milk,and the poppy seeds will help you sleep.”

      “Thank you Wrenfeather.” Darkjay quickly ate the herbs.
