An old baboon sat beside Sarabi at the bottom of Pride Rock, stroking her fur slowly. Sarabi coughed, breathing hard; her eyes gazing up to meet the wise baboon's.
"Rafiki..." she whispered, "I do not know how much longer my body will take this wear and tear every day... I am really sick and I fear my time has come."
"No..." Rafiki sighed, "Not yet Sarabi. You are the wise Queen, the rightful Queen over the Pridelands. You can't give up this easily."
"I have no choice... I am starving and sick. There is nothing I can do... anymore..."
Basking in the daylight under Pride Rock Rafiki waited in silence for his friend to speak further. The wind whipped gently around them, dust following across the dry land.
"Yes my Queen?"
"Are you hiding something from me? I feel your quieter than usual..."
Looking down in fear the baboon whispered, "Sarabi... I fear their will be a new heir to this awful kingdom... Zira is expecting... and Scar has asked me t

The Pride Lands; once a place filled with lush grasslands as far as the eye could see. It used to be ruled by a brave, wise king by the name of Mufasa whom had a golden pelt with a vibrant cherry mane. He had been a broad built lion that watched over the Pride Lands with joy setting fair rules and helping those in need. Mufasa had lived at Pride Rock with other Pridelanders, other lioness's, which gladly followed him in ruling over the land. Keeping the land at peace all the savannah animals were living in harmony under the great circle of life. Biding by Mufasa's rules the land stayed full of life, the vegetation as green as could be even during the dry seasons.
However; today the Pridelands are brittle and lifeless. The earth is dry and hard, the vegetation dead under the rules of a new king that watches over the Pridelands. He was a thin lion with that of a dark mane and a corrupted mind. Scar was his name and he had been the second in line for the thrown. Mufasa had been his wise o

Kagome Higurashi nervously adjusted her uniform as she half-listened to the school band play. The time when she would stand in front of everyone and sing was coming. While she had been honored that they had asked her the song that she was going to sing was definitely going to be emotional, and in more ways than anyone except her family knew.

Cold Saga - Part 6: Dual Pride
The sun's rays shone with a blinding radiance, warming the battlefield. Two Saiyan warriors, one clad in blue jumpsuit with white armor and the other in red pants and a white ruffled shirt, huddled together. The shorter one, bent over on one knee, was out of breath but wore an expression that could stop a giant in his tracks. The man beside him, taller with mussed black hair, had a hand placed on the other's shoulder and two fingers touching his forehead.
They had miraculously avoided a concentrated explosion of energy that had been on the verge of crushing the shorter warrior only an instant before. The enemy who had fired the blast stood only a hundred yards away, dark and menacing. Silhouetted by the sun, the spiked protrusion

Cold felt his armored exoskeleton stiffen as the transformation started to overtake him. He barely remembered what it was like, being in his true form. As the shell around him grew hard, he felt his body morphing, consciousness becoming cloudy.
The last time he had been in this form - nearly a century before - it had been all he could do to maintain control. Unlike the lower suppressed forms, he could easily alter the power of his true state; losing control would be as simple as one second of agitation. At minimum, he was only slightly stronger than his last transformation and easy enough to manage, but he had never put any appreciable fraction of its power to the test. This battle would take every ounce of concentration he possess

Before Tara could say anything, or anyone else could speak for that matter, she felt her stomach lurch and shoved past Xander, diving for the bathroom door. She collapsed in front of the toilet, gripping her chest so hard her knuckles were turning white, and emptied the contents of her stomach into it. As she gagged and coughed, getting rid of the rejected contents of her stomach, she was distantly aware of voices behind her.
"Wh-what did you just say, Xander?" The first voice spoke; it was Buffy's, Tara realized.
Someone came rushing up the stairs and pushed past Xander, coming around the corner to stand in the hallway. Tara got a small glance in before her stomach flipped over and she was once again hurling into the toilet; it was Dawn who was standing in the door way, staring hard into the back of Tara's head.
"Oh my god, it is Tara," she murmured, her voice barely audible over the rushing sound in Tara's ears.

The caribou has this wild look in its eye as it sees me advancing towards it. I take a deep breath and lunge for its exposed flank. My teeth find their mark and I feel them plunging deep into the caribou's side. It gives out a cry of pain as my teeth sink deeper into its flank. When I release, the caribou stumbles and trips over a fallen log, it gives out a wail of pain. I'm about to go and

I begin to slow my pace so he could catch up, but he started speeding up instead. Then I noticed that the remaining wolves from Pack of Fallen Leaves were following him, and all I did was follow them. Shimmer was the next wolf that came into my line of vision. But she didn't speed up, she began to come to my speed and she started getting closer and closer. I then notice that male wolf with the olive back, coming in on my left flank. Ambush, I think quickly, like taking down a deer, you come up on its left and right flank. Oliveback gets closer and so does Shimmer, so right when they try to squish me in between each other I begin to slow down. They clash into each other and I sprint over them.

I took a deep breath, inhaling the smell of herbs that surrounded me. It felt good, but it also felt lonely. No Naya and no Claymore, I have never felt so lonely. But I'm not alone, I have Mom. Well she was already gone, so I decided to do some exploring of my mother's home pack. It is quite beautiful, actually. Their woods has more variety of plants and there are different birds that I have never seen. The air smells of dew and rich soil and plants, I knew for a fact that Naya would love it here. I smiled at the thought of her being here. Her nose would be in the air, taking in the scents of the beautiful landscape. But then I remembered that she has already been here, so it must be a real treat for her able to come here on errands.

"Fat chance old man," Ranma said as he gobbled down his meal. It was a freshly prepared omelette with farm fresh eggs, bright red tomatoes, green onions and mushrooms. "By the way Kasumi, these are really good!"

Time sometimes seemed to pass quickly, sometimes slow, but sooner or later it was noticeable that the band was growing more and more famous.

But the sudden popularity also had its downside; the guys were constantly working on their new songs, an album that would be released in a few months even, and they could not walk into pubs anymore without be recognised instantly.

One moment he was walking a forest trail, the next moment he was tumbling down into the cold water of the stream he'd been following. Plunging in with an icy splash, his brain struggled to process what had led him to this point. He'd snuck out of his father's home with only the pack on his back, gotten himself wildly lost in the forest, found this stream and decided to track its course, and then something had jumped out at him and he tumbled down into the water.
Somewhere at the end of his stream of thought, Matthew fleetingly realized two things. First, that his life was tragically short and dull for only this much to have flashed before his eyes, and second, he really ought to have learned how to swim before setting out on this journey.
He thrashed to the surface, wildly swinging arms and kicking feet in hopes of finding purchase in the water. His feet didn't touch the bottom, but somehow his head got up for a gasp of air that cont

I knew it was Alex who was opening the door, so I didn't turn around.
He quickly came up behind me and grabbed my wrist, holding it against my stomach. His other arm came up in front of my chest and grabbed my chin, holding it in place. His face was right behind mine, and his breath tickled my ear. I shivered in fear.
"So, you've finally decided to be mine," Alex whispered. He chuckled before continuing. "Smart choice."
He spun me around and grabbed onto my shoulders before placing his lips onto mine. I didn't try to stop him, just waited until he was finished. He stuck his tongue in my mouth, and I didn't try to block it out.
He pulled back abruptly and looked at me, a questioning look on his face.

"Why aren't you fighting back?" he asked, his tone expressing that he was annoyed.
"What do you mean?" I asked, very confused.
