It was only yesterday that she and Eagletalon had talked briefly about naming their unborn kits. Duskflower had spent the day feeling a great sense of anticipation. She had dreamed of kits, dreamed she and Eagletalon had the biggest litter any cat had ever seen. How happy Eagletalon had been. All through the day she felt restless. She just wanted to meet her kits. She paced around camp, sitting now and then when her condition left her panting. She returned to the nursery and kneaded her nest, pulling up bits of moss and pushing it into new places, making it more comfortable before her kits arrived.
She stopped suddenly, her ears angled forward in excitement. She had done this very same thing right before Mistcloud and Smokestorm's kitting. Her tail swished happily and she forced herself out of the nursery and made for her sister's den as fast as she could, “Dawnblossom! The kits will be here soon, I know they will!”
Her sister turned from her work and stood, coming to her side and supporting her gently, with a soft purr of amusement, “Then why are you here? You should be in the nursery. Come.” Dawnblossom helped her back to the nursery, both of them purring the whole way, “I'll find Eagletalon for you. He might be on patrol right now, but I'm sure they'll be able to spare him so he doesn't miss anything. You stay here. I'll be back soon. I want to gather some herbs together as well, so I'm ready.” She gave her sister a quick, affectionate lick on the head, making sure she was settled into her nest well, before turning back out of the nursery.
She found Wolfclaw and asked him if he knew where Eagletalon was. The tom had to be on patrol or he would likely have already been by his mate's side. She asked him to send some cat to find him, that Duskflower was going to start kitting soon, before heading back to her den to gather up a bundle of herbs that might be needed, but hopefully wouldn't be necessary.
