She heard stories of this place, all of her life she had been told about the glorious stone. How it shone under the moonlight and practically lit up the entire cave. It was a shame that even though she'd get to set eyes on the stone herself, it wouldn't be radiating light. The moon was once again no where to be seen from beneath the dark and heavy clouds... it still looked like a tempest was being conjured up. Like another storm was about to hit... and she couldn't help but note when she neared the entrance of mother-mouth it looked especially bad here. StarClan isn't making these thunderbolts are they? She can't help but wonder... why would they destroy the owl tree? Just for a sign? She didn't quite understood it, their omens had been quite loud and clear that they needed to leave but they also needed to have time! They couldn't just drop everything and go, her clan wasn't ready. She wasn't ready.
The calico follows Mollypaw to the mouth of the cave, taking in a deep breath... she begins to move through it. It was pitch black, even with her eyes wide open she couldn't see within the cave. The only reason she managed not to bump into any walls was because she luckily had whiskers to guide her. After some time the cave opens up, and her jaw drops slightly.
It wasn't lit up but... stars it was still beautiful!
She takes a few moments to childishly investigate it with awe, looking it up and down. Before being reminded of why she was here, and all her childish excitement faded away.
"So I just... touch my nose to it and then sleep?" The calico asks Mollypaw for confirmation, who presumably confirmed or denied it before possibly constructing her on what to do. Laying down, she does nothing but sit there for a few moments... shaking slightly in fear. What if they didn't accept her? What if something bad happened somehow?
But she had to do it. She had to.
Forcing herself to take the leap, she presses her nose to the cool stone and closes her eyes... and waits.
After what felt like an eternity, but was probably only a pawful of seconds she opens her emerald eyes to find herself laying in a small clearing surrounded by birch trees. Flowers of multiple colors stood within it, and in the distance there was the faint sound of cheerful birdsong. Everywhere seemed to be glittered with stars, I'm here.
I'm in StarClan.
And upon that realization, nine StarClanner's appear before her at the edge of the clearing. Startled, Pumpkin steps back.
It was time.
