Sorry for the wait, everything or busy and it was horrid. Now I have time to update cuz we're doing easier stuff in geometry so I get to work on it. Alright here's your long awaited chapter, enjoy!
"Are those the new lions?"
I looked up at Sarabi and Sarafina. "We have new lions?"
"Apparently, because of the attack on Scar, Mufasa thought them needed." Sarabi said, she looked back at two figures, very similar in build but very different in color.
"No, no! I can't believe! And I TOLD him what they looked like! No!" I yelled. By now, Scar had walked out and my other friends were confused as to my distress.
"Syra, what's wrong? Does it have something to do with the new lions?" Scar asked. "Must be, I spotted them and when she noticed them she got in this state."
I motioned them to all come closer, "Those new lions? The dark one is Uchafu and the light one is Maafa. Remember when I first came back and told you what had happened after the stampede? We-"
"Well well well, who do we have here, Maafa? I do believe that she looks rather, oh what's the word? Ah yes, familiar, what do you think?"
"Ah Uchafu, I do believe you're correct. I do believe I've seen this piece of fur before. I believe she said she was the queen of a pride no?"
During their little conversation I had turned around and brought Kijani in closer to me. "What are you two useless pieces of rotted meat doing here?" The darker of the two newcomers narrowed his eyes. Before he could say anything, his pale friend cut in "Now now dear, that's no way to speak to old friends, now is it?" I, along with my friends and mate I'm sure, narrowed my eyes and growled " You two are no more my friends than the sky is yellow and sun blue." I started to say more, and would've if not for Scar intervening.
"By the way my mate speaks to you, you must be Uchafu and Maafa. " They looked at him, as if sizing him up, "Yeah, and who are you? And since when does she have a mate in this pride? We were aware she was in a different one."
"Ah yes, I am Scar, King Mufasa's brother. This pride is her first pride and will be her last, depending on how long you two plan on staying." This is when they panicked. "What do you mean, 'how long we plan on staying?'"
Scar smirked evilly, "Oh don't you know? As the prince, and she being my princess, if there are any threats to throne or royal. They are" creating a suspenseful pause, he waited a moment before continuing with "eliminated, immediately as according to what kind of threat as well as how severe said threat is. It's something you two might want to take in to consideration." As if on cue Mufasa came running up to us. "Ah my big brother" Scar said, almost sickingly excited for the possible means of extermination, "how convenient that you should arrive for you see we have a question to ask you if that's alright."
Mufasa looked at his brother strangely, "Very well, what is this" he hesitated, trying to find the right word, settling he finished, "question you wanted?" Scar looked even more pleased, "Oh nothing too terrible. We were having a little discussion, the new lions and I, and we were curious as to what would happen to any threat, potential or immediate, that could come of a royal member such as myself or even our dear Syra?" he had an accusing tone that was only caught by the two young lions across from me as well as myself. "Simple" Mufasa said, "it or they would be banished. Or, depending on how fatal the charge, killed immediately." Mufasa's suspicion was growing almost as rapidly as the evil looking smirk on Scar' face. "Oh no reason, anyway, what ARE you here for?"
Muffy was slightly taken back at the quick change of subject but replied smoothly, "I never heard your names correctly. You mumbled them, what are they?" The question was pointed towards Uchafu and Maafa, not that they weren't looking nervous as hell but that's beside the point. "Oh, well my name is Maafa, and this is my friend, Uchafu." he said nervously. Then, realizing that this was the king of the Pride Lands, he correcting his mistake with a quiet 'your highness'. Said king responded with "Ah yes, that's just what I thought." At that moment the rest of the pride came snarling around him, moving towards the unwanted males. I saw a rather large group of hyenas approach as well. "Hmm, I do believe that you are surrounded," Mufasa came down the rocks, Scar right behind him. Following them were the many lionesses of the pride. Muffy opened his mouth to say more, when he was cut off. "You will regret this! We are not alone!" Mufasa nodded and the hyenas and lionesses attacked the two.
As much as I'd like to say that the rapist lions got away to plan the next way to sabotage myself, I can't, so they didn't. After the attack, the hyenas were gone, just disappeared. It was clear that they took their share and then left. It wasn't during the attack that was hard to keep the cubs eyes from wandering, it was the aftermath that took more work. I knew they didn't understand, Jani was probably the least confused as she didn't really care about what was going on in the first place. Simba and Nala were a totally different story though. With Simba claiming that he had the right to know what happened and Nala just too curious to let it slide, it was stressful to handle by myself.
"Need help?" I turned and nearly passed out from total shock and surprise. "Niyella, what are you doing here?" I asked, still stunned that she had actually found me, whether it was her purpose or not. She smiled and lied down, "You two cubs better not look over there, that is grown up business." she told the cubs, "Anyway, we came here to find you, silly. We've been looking for a very long time. We go to hunt and find better shelter and when we come back, you're gone and Giza is missing. How is he anyway? I haven't seen him around, where is he?" Now I felt nothing but guilt, remorse, and sadness, with a bit of regret. "Well, Giza was killed." I said a bit bluntly, "What?" I nodded, "He was killed by none other than what's left of those things," I said motioning to the now dead lions, "not long after you all left." Niyella was in shock now, "Why?"
I sighed, "I was protecting him. They wanted to 'have some fun' and to do that I would have to leave Giza alone and I couldn't do that. So, they killed him." By then, my voice had broke and tears were building up around my eyes. I couldn't really bring myself to even look at her let alone tell her anymore. "I need to go." I said standing up, I walked a few steps then stopped when my name was called. "Aunt Syra! Wait for us!" "Mommy! Slow down!" I smiled sadly and let them catch up. I still couldn't look at Niyella, I failed her and her pride, I didn't deserve them.
Ooh so what's gonna happen now? Hope you guys enjoyed, sorry for the wait.
