Natasha padded slowly beside her mate, Nikos. They were walking slowly because Nikos had caught an illness that made him weak. Natasha insisted that they keep going so they could find another cat with the cure, but Nikos kept saying that he would be better once he had rested. Now Nikos was very weak, and there was no cat in sight.
Natasha and Nikos kept walking. They soon came upon a small river. It was too deep to wade, so they had to swim, but the moment Natasha stepped into the water, she knew the current was too strong for her sick mate. She scanned up and down the river, and a little way downstream, she saw a small twoleg bridge.
"Come on, Nikos." Natasha steered her mate over to the bridge. Nikos was too tired and weak to argue. Once they crossed, Natasha smelled many different cat scents. She and Nikos headed farther towards the strongest cat scent. Once they got really close, a voice ran out from the shadows."Rouges? Get off RiverClan territory!"
