Summary

Star Moonshine is the story about a young girl named Star Moonshine. She was born at midnight, when all the moon was full, making her the most powerful child of the night ever. When she was three, her family was killed by the Sun Queen. Star was sent to the orphanage where she lived for a year. When she turned four, she ran away and lived with her mentor, Salty. He is also a child of the night, but instead of becoming a pitch black wolf, he became a beautiful white cat with orange highlights on his face, and orange rings on his legs and tail. He trained her on how to control power. One day, while Star was exploring, she met a charming young man, Moto, which is an African word for Fire. He was a child of the sun, which meant he worked for the Sun Queen. Star didn't care. Right after that first conversation, she fell madly in love. She didn't know that Moto felt the same way. The very next day, when Salty was taken by the Sun Queen, Star and Moto knew immediately that they had to work together to free Salty. Star has to fight demons of the sea, monsters of the sky, and the Sun Queen herself to get her mentor back to complete her training. Little does she know, though, that going on the trip to save Salty completes her training.

Star was having a hard time believing that she could summon the spirits of the night. "They told me in school that the last time someone tried to summon the spirits, it was too much for him and he ended up joining them instead of summoning them."

"I know it sounds dangerous, but you'll have to trust me. That guy was not strong enough. You are. He was one of the more powerful ones, but not as powerful as you are. He was born at the full moon, whereas you were born at the full moon at midnight. You are the first to have this power in centuries. Just let me know if you feel your conciousness slipping," Salty told Star. 

Star knew she could trust Salty. In the earlier years, he had taught her how to breath underwater, how to create a magical sword, and how to control the tendrils of shadow she summons when she gets scared, angry, or when training. She's learned how to use the tendrils of shadow to create a sun-sheild, a sword, and armor. She mostly uses the shadows to create a sun-shield because the citizens of the Shadow Kingdom get easily damaged by the sun's rays. 

"Alright. Here I go." Star closed her eyes and imagined the night sky, which was easy to do since it was already night out. she then imagined countless animals coming out of the sky, mostly gentle animals. She was so lost in staring at them, she didn't notice a bloodthirsty lion coming at her from the sky. She looked back just in time to yell, "SALTY!" 

"What did you see?" Salty asked Star after he got her out from her vision of the spirits.

"I thought I saw a phantom lion coming at me," she said, "And it looked like it was ready to rip me to pieces."

"That's okay. That always happens the first time. But, I'm glad you yelled my name because the spirit animals are even more dangerous than the real ones. One touch with an angry spirit predator, and it'll sever your soul from your body. It'll even happen in the visions."

Star decided never to try that again. It was too dangerous. "I don't ever want to do that again," she said, "It's too dangerous, and I don't want to end up like that man I learned about in school." She ran out of the tent into the cold night.

"Star, wait!" Salty called out.

"No, I am not coming back in until tomorrow," Star yelled. She had done this many times before with Salty. The first time was breathing underwater. She was in the tank, and she was trying to breath, but no air was coming. She was pulled out of the tank and she ran out crying. She said she never wanted to do it again. But the next day, she came in and didn't try at all to breath underwater, but ended up doing it. She realized that all she had to do was relax. Let the power do its own thing.

Star came in the next morning for her sun-gear. She rarely ever got that out. She usually used her shadow power, but that was for short term usages, like an hour or so. When she went on long treks, she needed the sun gear. 

"You going hunting again?" Salty asked. He knew her like the back of his hand. Every time she came to get her sun gear, he knew she was going hunting. 

"We're low on food, and I know a really good hunting spot. I probably won't be back until tonight, so I can finish training," Star replied. She started to reach for the bow, then decided against it. She could use her shadow powers, but she grabbed the bow anyways because using her shadows would take up too much energy in the plain sun. She would probably use her shadows at night. She also grabbed her sword and the cat, Salty Jr. Salty Jr. would be used to get the smaller animals that Star couldn't get to. He was especially trained for that. 

Star left the tent and headed east. She was certain that she would get a couple of good kills there at that river. There were hundreds of fish there, and many of them were big enough to feed the entire Shadow Kingdom. She never went after those ones, as they needed to breed. She usually got the smaller ones because that was the majority of the fish in the river. 

Star got to the river around noon, which was great timing for her. She usually spent a good two hours fishing. She let Salty Jr. loose in the feilds. He immediatly went after a couple of mice. Star got her bow ready to catch one of the fish, when something shining in the water caught her eye. She waded into the river and picked it up. It was a small charm bracelet that fit her wrist perfectly. She put it around her wrist and decided it must have belonged to another young girl who came here last.

Star looked at the charms on it and saw a starnge looking one. It was the sun, the moon, and a heart between them. Maybe the two kingdoms, Sun and Shadow, used be able to produce offspring with each other, before the big war. Whatever the charm meant, Star liked it and hoped it would start happening again, soon. 

The fishing trip was successful, with Star catching five salmon and Salty Jr. cating a couple of rabbits. Salty Jr. was no ordinary cat. He was a magical cat able to sense danger and predict the future and able to outrun even the biggest and fastest prey. For Salty Jr, catching jackrabbits was as easy as catching a mouse for a regular cat. 

When Star got back to the tent, she showed Salty her catch of the day. She also showed Salty the charm bracelet she found in the river. 

"I'm surprised that it let you wear it. The last time a girl tried to wear it, it dragged her to that river and drowned her. This bracelet only people who are strong in magic wear it," Salty told Star after inspecting it.

"There's this one charm on here that doesn't really make any sense to me, but I like it," Star pointed out Salty, showing him the charm she was talking about on the bracelet, "I think I remember a dream I had when I was six, about that exact charm bracelet and it zoomed in on this exact charm."

"That must be the reason it let you wear it. I think I remember something about that bracelet, letting only the most powerful Shadow who's dreamt of it wear it," Salty said. 

"Well, I'm not a True Shadow yet, so, why is it letting me wear it?" Star asked, "I know that I'm the  most powerful, and I dreamt of it when I was six, but why is it letting me wear it? I'm only thirteen."

"I'm afraid I don't know, but how about you get some rest outside? We can work on summoning the spirits tomorrow," Salty replied. Salty Jr. agreed with an almost mournful meow, signaling that he wanted to sleep with Star that night.
