The leader of SouthClan had long given up hope that Zephyrstar would ever return. He, like many other cats, had vanished into thin air. He knew that he hadn't run off, like some cats had suggested. He was a loyal, good cat, he thought. He led this Clan well. Now it was Raggedstar's turn to lead the Clan well. He hadn't been the leader for long, but he was doing his best for his Clan.
The Raiders had stopped by several times, which had set the Clan on edge. He'd also heard about talk of war between other Clans. He just hoped that they would keep SouthClan out of it. They were still not yet strong enough to join in any battle.
