As the other cats finish up, Whitefury and Bramblepaw move into the outcrop. "What are we doing today?" Bramblepaw asked. "We will do a lesson, and then some battle practice." Whitefury responded, "So sit down." He added a second later. Bramblepaw sat and prepared to listen. Whitefury cleared his throat and began, "Do you know about a cat named Redspirit?" He asked, "Yeah, cats talked about him., i've heard his name but i don't know why." Bramblepaw responded. "Redspirit wasn't a good cat. He was a tyrant, in some sense. He, with the help of a dark-forrest warrior, took over Horseclan for a short time," whitefury left the part where he "helped" out.. "He killed a few cats, and did other things to others. Why am i telling you? Well, i feel you should learn about these things.. If we ignore or forget our clans past, we're bound to repeat it some time down the road. I also am trying to teach you to notice tirany(zpell fail) so that it doesn't have to happen again. Redspirit was corupted by greed for power, and he was merciless. Now that you know who he was, we'll move on now. Jump at me." He said. Bramblepaw looked confused and did what he was ask. Whitefury grabed him in the air and threw him to the ground, "don't let cats taunt you.." He said..... (Post the rest later..

Oh and Lily, I'm locked out of both main camps (Ashclan and Horseclan) so if it isn't too much trouble could you help me?) He watches in horror as blood from the wound splatters the ground. He immediatly sheaths his claws and responds to her battering by going limp for a second. Then, as she finally relaxes her grip, he pushes upward, knocking her off. He purrs, knowing he did a good job, but then shakes his head and launches into a hunting crouch, ready to pounce if needed.
