As Ashton explored the abandoned tunnel, she found an old train car leaned against the wall. She went inside, hoping it could become a shelter for her. Inside the train car, she found a door.
Curious, she opened that door.
It was a dance club, filled with teenagers and kids her age. As Ashton stood in awe, a girl around her age called her over to the launchpad. She walked over, and the girl intrduced herself.
Name's Ashton. And... I guess I'd take a job here.
My name's Sissily, but everyone calls me Fireheart. Want a job here?
Welcome to the Paws n' Claws! You new?
Over the next couple of years, Ashton, or Sparrow as everyone called her, became best friends with Fireheart. Life was finally starting to look up.
Until one day.
Like her mother had done to her many years ago, Sparrow received a note from Fireheart saying she had to leave.
Dear Sparrow, I am so sorry. I love you, but I have to leave. You’ve always been a sister, but my actual one, Jade, sent me her new address. You know how it feels. To have family after all those years you hadn’t. Love, your sister forever, Fireheart.
Sparrow couldn't stay. So, in pure sadness, she left too.
