The story so far:
Having just been made an apprentice, Cherrypaw was determined to train hard with he mentor, Tigerdawn to be the best warrior she could be to make her mother and sister in Starclan proud. Not an easy task, considering the young shecat was being bullied by another apprentice named Sunpaw and was generally shy and lacked confidence in herself, which made training twice as difficult for her. Then at her very first gathering, she met a Windclan apprentice named Skypaw. He convinced Cherry to meet him as the border and the two began their secret meetings. They would hunt and play, and soon thee pair began to fall for one another. But Cherry was torn up inside about the secret meetings. She felt like Skyfeather was her only real friend, and perhaps more... but oh how disappointed her mother must be in Starclan. Throughout their meetings, the pair were nearly discovered once by Blazingstar, and Cherry's mentor became suspicious when Cherry began showing up for training exhausted. When she earned her warrior name, she resolved to end this affair and prove to herself that she could be a loyal Thunderclan warrior, which meant leaving Skypaw, now Skyfeather. Grief-stricken yet again, Cherrydawn could hardly contain her sadness when she saw Skyfeather at the next gathering. But when the Dusk Syndicate attacked, the pair had to work together to protect each other and Cherry realized she couldn't stand to be without the Windclan tom. She asked him to join Thunderclan, and the two went to Snowstar who agreed to allow the tom to join.
