TOK: Chapter 27Aura and Lilly led Soren over to the current of wind of which they came from. They knew they were approaching it because of the strange moving things in the sky and there was a lot of wind."Okay, I want you two to grab my talons," Soren instructed. They did what he asked. Aura looked at her battle clawed talons and her ice sword. She couldn't believe that she was actually wearing them.They spun through the air and reached the other side. "Look, there's Gretel's cave!" Lilly shouted."Can we stop there, Soren?" Aura begged. "To say hi?"Soren sighed. "Alright," he said. "But not for long.""Okay."They alighted down. "Gretel, Nick, Apollo," Aura shouted."What? Who's there?" A Masked owl waddled out. It was Gretel!"Gretel!" Lilly cried. "Hi," Aura said."Ah, Lilly and Aura. I see you made it.""Yeah, this is the king, Soren. We came because the fight

TOK: Chapter 26"You know we aren't allowed to go in parliament owl hollows when they're asleep." Aura whispered as she and Lilly flew up to Soren's hollow."Yeah, but this is life or death for the owls," Lilly replied. "And, his daughter Blythe and Pelli are with them. He wouldn't want them dead." Lilly gave Aura a withering glance. Sometimes Aura could be
whatever.They arrived, landing in his hollow he shared with Pelli and Viper. "Soren, wake up," Lilly said, shaking him. Suddenly Soren started shaking and screaming, giving Aura and Lilly quite a fright. They jumped back and started trembling. "S-Soren?" Aura asked quietly. "Are you awake? Are you okay?"Soren opened his eyes. "Oh my gosh," he said to himself. "What a dream." He got up and looked around. He then noticed the two young owls. Soren made a small squeak noise, and asked "What are you doing here?". His eyes grew stern. "You know it's strictly against the rules to be in a parliament owl hollow, while they are asleep."
TOK: Chapter 25Lilly awoke to sounds of owls yelling. "Noyto's back! Noyto's back!"Noyto's back? she thought. "Aura, wake up.""What?" grumbled Aura. "Noyto's back." Lilly said. That woke Aura up. She flew out of the hollow, with Lilly following.The Great Hollow was packed with owls waiting to hear the news. Aura glanced at Noyto. He seemed alright."It was terrible," he groaned. "Hundreds of stone stunned owlets, many soldiers."Soren looked at him."They need to be stopped," Noyto continued. "They plan on taking the Hoolian kingdoms.""Do you think we need to stop them?"

"Why aren't you going?""I need to stay with our two King owls.

TOK: Chapter 24Aura was placed in the infirmary to make sure nothing was wrong. She was cold and wet, that was for sure. But Matron wanted to be sure.Matron slowly waddled in. She was getting rather old. She walked near Aura. "What's wrong, dear?"Soren answered for her. "In the chaw, she fell in the ocean.""And my wings are sore," Aura added."Ah," Matron said, and peered down. Suddenly she fell on Aura, unmoving.Aura screeched, jumping up and flapping her sore wings. "What just happened?" she asked. Lilly flew in. "What happened?""She's-" Soren paused. "Dead."The owls gasped.***"We now will have a moment of silence for Matron." Soren said. All of the Ga'Hoole owls were in the great hollow, having Matron's Final ceremony.After a while it ended after speeches from the owls who knew her best. As the owls dispersed for night flight, Lilly flew over to Aura. "I heard Matron's assistant talking to Soren.""And. . ." Aura said, cocking her head. "What about it?""They say she ate a poisoned thing.
