All the parts of a perfect day were there; a shining sun, barely any clouds, and a clear, blue sky. The sun’s rays managed to slip through two buildings and shone on an alley, where a meeting was taking place. A large auburn tomcat stood on a pile of cardboard boxes, his golden eyes inspecting the crowd of cats. A black queen carrying a kitten tried to get to the boxes, but to no avail. “Let her through.” His voice was firm, and one all the cats feared. The cats made a clear aisle. The queen stepped through. She climbed on the boxes, and dropped the kitten. The kitten was jet black with ginger cheeks, ears, tail, and a ginger ring around both forelegs. The auburn tom leaned his head down. “So this is little Luna?” The queen nodded. “She is your only daughter.” The tom blinked. “Kind of ugly.” The queen opened her mouth in shock. “Severinus! How could you!?” Severinus looked over at his mate, then Luna. “I don’t like her fur pattern, and her orange tints don’t look very good.” Severinus looked away as Luna squeaked. His mate nudged him with her paw. “Look at your daughter.” Severinus stood up to look down at the cats before him. “Cats of the High Federation, I believe you are wondering why I called you all here. I have pondered this decision for a long time, and I have come to a standing point. From now on, there will be no more cats with unnatural colors in the High Federation!” An outcry of disappointment erupted from all the cats. Two grey cats, one male and one female, looked down at their kitten. She was grey with markings that were two shades of purple. Her magenta eyes shifted to look at the angry cats. Away from them, a grey queen and a black tomcat put their paw across a grey cat with black and blue markings. Severinus looked around. “I understand that this means you will have to part with your loved ones and kittens, but remember, this is for the best. Now, I wish for you to separate yourselves into two groups. One for the unnatural ones, and one for the natural ones.” One by one, the cats separated themselves. The two grey cats pushed their kitten into the unnatural color group, then made their way into the natural color group. The grey queen and the black tomcat grabbed their kitten by the scruff and dragged him into the natural color group, shaking. They were defying their leader, but they were desperate for kittens. Severinus smiled. “Good.” He turned to his mate. “Swanhild, I want you to take Luna and go to the natural color group. I’ll go and escort the unnaturals out.” The two cats parted ways. Severinus guided the group out of the alley. The grey and purple kitten skipped behind Severinus, happy as can be. Severinus turned his head and growled. The kitten stopped. A larger green cat grabbed her by the scruff. “Shh.....I’ve got you.” The kitten looked up and faintly smiled. The cat smiled back. “All right. We’re here.” Severinus was standing before a bin that reeked of animal waste. The kitten coughed. The green cat dropped the kitten. “What? We’re supposed to be here? No.” Severinus turned to the cat, frowning. “Get over it. Either you live here or starve.” The kitten noticed a butterfly. She hopped after it. The conversation faded away as the kitten followed the butterfly. The two had gone very far when the butterfly flew out of reach. The kitten watched as the butterfly went away. She lowered her ears, and whimpered. She was lost. A paw touched her back, and she tensed. A blue cat with black stripes stepped in front of her. “Hey, you’re just a kitten. What’s your name?” The kitten paused, her jaw hanging open. Her parents had told her a name, but what was it? -Daisuke.- A name flashed in her mind. Daisuke.....that must be my name. “My name is Daisuke...?” The cat kept a straight expression. “Oh. Well, this field is my territory. Stay out.” The cat walked away, leaving Daisuke alone again. She turned and headed back towards the buildings.
