Kila smiled at her kit as he played around the makeshift den, "becareful, Nerosuka, dont hurt yourself"
Nerosuka shrugged, "dont worry, im fine"he couldn't help a feeling of impatience. His mother was too protective! Ever since his siblings died it was, careful this, careful that. It got so frustrating at times.
Kila frowned slightly, see the impatience in her kit's eyes. It had been two moons since her other kits had died from sickness, she didn't want her little Nero to get hurt. She sighed, looking up at the darkening sky, "well, its time for bed Nerosuka, lets go"she rose to her paws
Nero growled silently, "but mom! its just getting good!"he looked reluctantly atthe den, "cant we stay up?"
Kila looked at the bright lights behind the clumps of trees, she shook her head, "no, Nero, its time for bed"
Nero frowned, feelings his mother's mouth close around his neck gently as she took him to the den.
Kila smiled as she curled up in the nest, placing Nero beside her. Kila licked his head and wraped around him, laying her head on her black paws and falling asleep.
Nero made sure his mother was fully asleep before wriggling out of her grasp. He smiled, "the great Nerosuka, the best escape artist this forest has ever seen!"he whispered silently, tumbling out of the den.
Nerosuka leaped onto his moss ball, his purple eyes baling with triumph, "take that mamma! ill rule the forest, you'll see" he wresled with the clump of moss untill he tired out. He padded over to a puddle and laped at it greedily. He looked up as a strange light flashed between the trees. "wow!"he meowed, heading twards it.
Kila felt something. An unusal feeling that every mother sometimes has. It was the same feeling she had before her two little one died. Kila bolted awwake instantly, "nero!?"she called, looking around the pitch black den. She felt her fur slowly brisle, "NERO! nero, were are you!"she yowled, looking arond in panic. She bolted out the den franticly. She looked around, spotting a black tipped tail dissapear behind a tree. "no no no"she meowed, bolting after him, "NERO!"
Nero stoped, feeling the strange grey rock. He didn't like the way it burned his paw, or how much it stunk, but it was reall cool sensation when it began to rumble. "ha! even the rocks are scared of the mighty-" a yowl interupted his speech-"NERO!!!!"
it all happened so...fast.
Kila only had to glance at the shiny red monster before she bolted forward, driven on by the mother's instinct to protect. She grabed Nero roughly and threw him to the other side.
Nero looked up, shocked. Two object were heading straight twards him. He couldn't move, blinded by the light in his face. The grey object caught him first. He felt a rough pain in his scruff and then he was in the air.
It seemed like seasons before he landed on the ground with a thud.
then it was over....all over.
"mamm! that was too hard!"he whimpered, rising to his paws. He placed a paw on his scruff, gasping in pain as he looked at his red stained paw. A horrible smell drifted to him at that moment. It was the same smell drifting from his red paw. blood.
Nerosuka flipped around, seeing a dark shape on the black rock....it was surrounded by blood.
Nero hesitantly walked too it, his eyes bigining to stream with tears, "m-mamma?"
Kila felt horrible pain on her leg and stomach. She was drifting between conciusness and death. But she felt calm, seeing her memories flash before her. She smiled weakly, looking at her proud little kit grow up to be such a strong warrior.
Kila opened her dim eyes, her vision over. "Nero...? is that....you....?"she whispered, looking at her little son.
Nero felt the tears drip down, "mamma! i-im so sorry! please, please dont die! Im sorry, i wont run away again, ill never go near the light, just...just dont go..."
Kila smiled at her handsome, kind son, "Nero...promise me...you'll be carefull"
Nero nodded vigorusly
Kila raised a numb paw, stroking his small head, "i...i want you to go...to the clans....ask them...for shelter...become one of them"
Nerosuka smiled a little with hope, "a-and you'll come with me? and the herb cat will heal you"
Kila felt her own tears leak down, "Nero, please don't cry....but i connot.....i must go...."
The little kit buried his head into his mothers shoulder, "go were? i-i'll come with you...please!"
Kila weakly pushed her son away, "no...i want you...to become a strong, loyal warrior.... i-ill always be with you, don't worry"she smiled her eyes biggining to glaze, "i...love...you, my...son" and with that, she closed her eyes and her paw fell from her son's chest. she never woke up.
Nero couldn't belive it, she was gone. He resisted the urge to fall on her and cry. She could hear the monstars toping behind him, their two-legs rushing out. Nero licked his mother's cold cheek, "don't worry, mamma, ill make you proud"he smiled at the sky, "ill be the best warrior you'll ever see! i promise!"and with that, the little grey and black kit bolted away, his tears leeking down his determind eyed face.
