The Future and Once King: Chapter I, Part IIn some respects nothing at all had changed; in other respects everything had changed and nothing would ever be the same. Alas, the latter cannot be helped. Mordred’s formidable blade struck down the beloved young king with a mortal wound, ending his life prematurely. Nay, not end King Arthur’s life, but rather stall it until a time when he was needed by Albion once more. And though that time has yet come to pass, I shall do my utmost best at telling the final story of Merlin and King Arthur that lay within my heart.
I begin my story at the Lake of Avalon. ‘Tis a lake of magic and history, the secrets of which we shall never know the depths. In the past, the Lake of Avalon existed beyond the veil between two worlds. I mean that in two different senses. The first sense, and most commonly known, is that Avalon is a portal between two worlds. The second sense I intend to emphasize in the story is that there is physically a misty veil. In the time of King Arthur Avalon co

"How was your day?" Mintyheart breathed as he slowly withdrew his head.
"Better now." Charming blinked his golden eyes slowly as he gazed at Mintyheart. Every time he looked at him he was afraid to remove his eyes, in case the silver shimmering tom would disappear and never return to him. "How was your day?"
"Eventful" Mintyheart sighed.
"Oh?" Charming cocked his head in interest.
"Oh yeah. I'll tell you as we head to the barn." Mintyheart stood, shaking a leave from him pelt. He felt Charming's tail near his and shifting slightly, twisted his tail with the black tom's. The two tom's padded along towards the barn as Mintyheart told Charming about the events of the day.
"Haha, so Palepaw got sprayed by a skunk. I thought I smelled something odd on your pelt. I thought it was something to hide your sent when you went through Shadeclan, but know I
recognize it." Charming's mew was light and preppy.
"The whole clan smells awful. He got sprayed really good...poor little tom. He was doing so

The sun was just peeking through the cracks of the nursery when Jaggedkit opened his eyes. Next to him both Brackenkit and Maggotkit were fast asleep. Maplefur was also sleeping but where Preciouskit normally slept, in between Maplefur's paws, was empty. Blinking away his sleep he saw a small bundle of black and white fur. That must be Preciouskit. Standing he padded towards her as she slowly made her way to the nursery entrance. Hearing him, she turned her head and hissed in surprise and then, seeing it was her brother, flicked her tail.
"Sorry." She squeaked, "I thought you were Maplefur."
"You've opened your eyes!"
"I have," She purred lightly. "Maplefur said I was too little to move around the nursery yet so I thought I might as well see it. And since she was asleep..."
"You're fur is sticking out all over," Jaggedkit purred at his sister's spiky fur.
"That's because Maplefur hasn't attacked me yet and given me a bath."
"Well you need one," He mewed softly to her. She hissed at him

When they reached Four Trees, MarshClan and MeadowClan were already there. Blazingstar flicked his tail and ForestClan followed him. Echopaw was going to take a step, but then Peppernose bit her tail, holding her back.
"Yeow! What was that for? Oh, I mean, umů"
"Shush," Peppernose silenced her. "For the Gathering, since it's your first as a Medicine Cat apprentice, you will stay by my side and talk with the other Medicine Cats. I will introduce them all to you. Lastly, you will not speak unless spoken to. Got it?" Echopaw nodded silently. "Let's go then and get this over with."
Echopaw padded after Peppernose as he approached a pretty light brown she-cat with a dappled patterned pelt. She looks nice; a lot nicer than Peppernose anyway.
Peppernose dipped his head to the she-cat and she did the same. Her gaze then went to Echopaw. "My my. Did you take on an apprentice Peppernose? A bit young, are you?"
Peppernose glared at her. "This is Echopaw. And why, yes, Willowdance, she is my appre

The next day Mintyheart padded across the clearing, tail drooping.
"What's wrong?" Skypool's mothering voice called from where she was sitting with Winterstorm
"Oh, nothing." Mintyheart stammered. "Maplefur just doesn't want me in the nursery so much."
"Why not?" Skypool sounded shocked.
"Well I am there a lot..."
"Nonsense! They are your kits too." Skypool's mew was sympathetic. "She's probably just getting defensive because the kits are starting to move around more. And with four kits it must be hard to keep an eye on all of them."
"Did she change the grey tom's name?" Winterstorm mewed to Mintyheart.
"No." Fury burned in Mintyheart's eyes. Lashing his tail he added, "I'll have to talk to Blazingstar. Maybe he'll let him change his name when he becomes a warrior."
"I'm sure he will." Skypool mewed gently. "Blazingstar isn't cruel."
"I'm going to talk to her again." Mintyheart turned back towards the nursery.
"Maybe you should wait." Skypool advised. "She's already upset now...I can t
