Hawkflight licked Flowerpaw's ear caringly, while Frostpaw sat a little way apart. She never licked my ears like that. She never loved me. Frostpaw knew she shouldn't be thinking this- Flowerpaw was always the weaker of the two sisters. Flowerpaw had a disease. When she was under a lot of stress, she fell to the ground and started twitching and convulsing. Frostpaw knew her sister hated her disorder, but Flowerpaw got all the attention from everyone. Everywhere she went, it was "How's Flowerpaw?" or "Isn't Flowerpaw so pretty?" or "Can you tell Flowerpaw that I think she's really cute?" and things like that. Frostpaw hated it. She wanted some attention for once. But everything she did, she did wrong. Everything she did, Flowerpaw was better at it. Sometimes she just wanted to sink her teeth into her sister's shoulder and tell her she didn't deserve all the glory. But despite all her feelings, Frostpaw really did love Flowerpaw.
"Are you ready for Flowerpaw's apprentice ceremony, Frostpaw?" Rainclaw meowed to her.
"I guess," she sighed. "It's mine too, you know."
"Are you excited?" Raincloud mewed. The brown tabby was always so nice to her. Frostpaw thought Raincloud was the only one who really cared about her.
"Yeah." Frostpaw smiled- the first time in days.
"You know, it's not all about your sister," she whispered.
"It sure seems that way." The smile slipped right off of Frostpaw's muzzle.
"Let all cats join beneath the Sharpstone for a Clan meeting!" Shimmerstar called. Halfclaw, the deputy, stood by the foot of the Sharpstone, looking serious and confident. Ivyleaf and Twistpaw padded out of the medicine den. " I, Shimmerstar, leader of RainClan, call upon my warrior ancestors to look down on these apprentices. They have trained hard to understand the ways of your noble code, and I commend them to you as warriors in their turn. Frostpaw and Flowerpaw, do you promise to uphold the warrior code and to protect and defend your Clan, even at the cost of your life?
"I do," mewed Frostpaw seriously.
"I do!" Flowerpaw squealed. Shimmerstar smiled at Flowerpaw. Frostpaw glared.
"Then by the powers of StarClan, I give you your warrior name. Flowerpaw, from this moment you will be known as Flowershine. StarClan honors your kindness and enthusiasm, and we welcome you as a full warrior of RainClan. Frostpaw, from this moment you will be known as Frostwhisker. StarClan honors your seriousness and bravery, and we welcome you as a full warrior of RainClan."
"Flowershine!" the Clan screamed. "Frostwhisker," they chanted, significantly quieter. Tears brimmed in Frostwhisker's eyes, and she jumped down from the rock before Shimmerstar rested her muzzle on her head.
"Frostpaw..." Flowershine began.
"No! Stop it, Flowershine!" Frostwhisker yowled, nearly crying. Why does she have to be so special?! "And that's Frostwhisker to you!" With an angry lash of her tail, Frostwhisker stormed out of camp, onto the open moorland.
