Morning came quickly to the Pride Lands, but the storm continued to rage on making the morning sky dark with its clouds. Many of the lions and lionesses lay there, stomachs growling with hunger, hoping the storm would cease so they could hunt.
Simba lay at the entrance of the den, watching the power and rage of the storm. His eyes were heavy as he watched, shaking off the sleep that kept trying to overpower him. He had barely slept a wink throughout the night, for the events that took place the evening before would creep into his thoughts, making him unable to sleep. Nala woke to see that her mate wasn't by her side. She scanned the den until she spotted him watching the storm outside. She got up and smiling gently went to greet him good morning.

" Kiara, what is wrong?"
" Ask them!.... They wish to betroth our son Lir, to this strangers female cub, and i will not have it!"
Kovu looked at Nala and Sarabi with a look of disbelief as Simba over heard the problem. Walking into the birthing den sitting beside his mate, Nala, he glared at his daughter.
"Kiara that is enough! You have been nothing but disrespectful, and disobedient all your life ever since you were a cub, and now it's time to grow up!"
Simba scorned Kiara loudly as all the playfulness seemed to leave his eyes, and was replaced with complete seriousness. Kiara lowered her ears saddened and deeply hurt, as Kovu glared at Simba, and went to voice his opinion when Simba interrupted.

Kiara smiled and returned Kovu's nuzzle, as she too gazed down at their new family. The cubs were looking at the surroundings of the cave mewing softly when they saw new things.
"The first born was this little, dark-gold, male cub, with the dark brown marking of fur on his head. Then his dark-brown sister with the small lighter brown strip on her head was born second..." Kiara exclaimed softly, as she studied their markings and colors.

"Dad...... Kiara and i will adopt Thena's cubs...." Simba looked at Kovu shocked at the words he was saying, but he softly smiled as Kovu continued, "The least we can do for her is to ensure her cub's survive." Simba nodded as he looked at Thena's lifeless body, and the smile he held was slowly fading.
"I'm so sorry young Thena, but watch on from the skies, for one day your children will be great, and they will make you proud... May the great Kings welcome you into their kingdom of the heavens".

Kovu sighed and shook off the worried feeling but, this wasn't the first time Simba had acted this way before. Kovu noticed that ever since Kiara had become pregnant Simba seemed to be distant and this worried Kovu. He did not want their king to pass away thus making him the new king; he was not ready for that much responsibility.
Kovu and Simba followed Nala into a tunnel hidden within the walls of Prides Den. Kovu and Simba's hearts raced as they neared Kiara who was lying on a soft, dry grass bed.

He saw no problems with chasing his 2 brothers and Kopa out of his pride for no other reason other than they were male. Their father looked at him as the perfect son and so he saw his brothers as inferior beings. While the pride mourned the death of their king and previous king when he and his father died no one really missed them since they looked down on so many others.
