This is the back story to one of my Warriors OC's. Hope you enjoy!
Birdwish and Darkriver were two warriors of RiverClan. Birdwish was expecting Darkriver's kits. One day while the two were out for a walk by the river, the time for Birdwish to have her kits came.
Birdwish had her kits and they were named Wishkit and Marshkit. On the way back to camp, Darkriver stumbled and Marshkit tumbled into the river. His tiny black head disappeared beneath the water and Darkriver leapt in after him.
Darkriver yowled his kit's name, but the tiny black head never reappeared above the surface. The frantic father swam about, desperately trying to find his kit, but nothing could be done. Marshkit was gone.
Underneath the surface of the river, tiny Marshkit was struggling for his life. He had gotten caught in some seaweed at the bottom of the river. Since his tiny lungs could only hold so much air, his world soon faded to darkness.
When Marshkit got to StarClan, he found out from the ancestors that it wasn't his time to die. But as his parents saw him die, that added some complications.
So StarClan gave Marshkit the ability to breathe underwater and told him that he could live in the lake as long as he promised to never show himself and just stay in the lake. The renamed him Lake and sent him back into the living world. Lake grew up to be about 8 moons old before his curiosity about his parents grew to where he couldn't bear it anymore. Could he continue to keep his promise to StarClan?
