~~ Iris ~~
Draco swims up to me, while I was just swimming away from getting my herbs. "Iris, I don't ever, ever want to keep secrets from you, so I'm going to tell you now: I'm the son of Shadow Moon Clan's leader. Like you, I've joined the good side. I just don't want you to think I'm keeping secrets from you, because I promise I never will." I nod. Looks like all of us have our dark secrets.. Draco quickly swims away, learning battle tactics and whatnot. I was just checking if I have all the herbs I need. Moss for bleeding.. Fern for mending bones.. Wisteria for preventing infections.. Basta interrupts me from afar. "Iris!" I turn. "Be careful," he says quietly. I nod, "You, too.". He swims away. In the far paddy abyss, I see Flamesong and Breme having a little chat. I must get on with my herbs.. And then I quietly turn back.
~~ Breme ~~
Sunlight swims away for a quick nap. Flamesong shows while I was just thinking on what to do with Darkmist. "How are you coping with all this leading? I know it's probably tough without Silverbeam here, but you're doing great. This is almost over, and then we can live normal lives," I nod. "It's hard. I hope Silverbeam comes back soon, I hardly know a thing about leading! And as for normal lives.." My voice drifts. "I was thinking about me and Sunlight having our fry?" I turn slightly red. "I know.. We're in the deep of battle but I could just imagine all the grizzle crowntails and then orangy veiltails." Flamesong nods, "What about you and Manny?" This is so weird.. Talking about fry with my ex-crush. But oh well, she's the only friend that I can talk to besides Iris and Sunlight. Basta wouldn't understand.. He'll just say I'm stupid. I chuckle.
