The royal males stopped dead in their tracks as Kiara's angry voice rang out throughout the den's walls. Kovu then leaped in a rush to his mates side.
" 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.
"Hold your tongue Kovu! You and Kiara may be the future king and queen, but i am still the king of the Pride Lands, and I say as of now, prince Lir is betrothed to this lioness's Daughter."
"But Simba, what if the lioness doesn't wish her daughter to be betrothed to our son?" Kovu asked as Sarabi chuckled.
"She will agree, for it will be like a payment of her gratitude to us for saving her life, and the lives of her children.... Now, lower your heads, it's late, and we all must renew our strength for the morn."
And, without another word Simba, Nala, and Sarabi turned and left the den. After they left Kiara began to cry, as she looked up at Kovu tears streaming down her face. He gently cuddled up behind her, draping his head and neck over her shoulders to give her comfort.
"Father has always been so hard on me. Is it a crime to want our future king to find a queen out of love? Father has never yelled towards me with that much scorn before."
Kovu gently nuzzled his head against his mate's and purred gently.
"It's alright my love, your father will apologize he can't stay mad at his little girl for too long. He's just upset cause of the storm and it being so late, and he has things on his mind about the kingdom.... So everything will be fine, I promise."
Kiara sniffled a little, but then smiled slightly, at her very caring mate as she licked his cheek, still upset over the whole ordeal of the betrothal.
"Thank you Kovu, you've made me feel so much better, I don't know what I'd do without you."
Kovu chuckled as he returned her lick, and nuzzled her gently as a yawn sneaked out of his mouth and it made Kiara chuckle.
"We should get some rest. I for one am wore out ."
Kiara said as Kovu nodded his head in agreement. They both laid down and let sleep overtake them, as Kiara's thoughts of her offsprings future ran threw her head, it made it hard for her to get much sleep at all.
so now things start forming in the story,.... a betrothal between Lir and the unknown lioness's cub... Kiara is in complete disagreement, the rest of the pride is all for it and Kovu is on the fence about it.... boy this could get hairy....

THANX FOR READING!!!!
is my Betta reading THANK YOU HUN for helping me out with this YOUR AWESOME ^^
It was they're first night married togeather so inuyasha took his newly wedded wife kagome to an fancy inn.
"oh InuYasha, it's wonderful!" " how did you get the money to pay for this inn?" kagome asked with qustion.
" hm you don't remmber?" "we saved this village a long time ago back when we were on our journey to distroy naraku."
said inuyasha. " oh i remmber now!" then there was a knock at their door. " sir? madam?" " your dinner is ready" said the hostist.
"thanks we'll be right there." then inuyasha put his hand on kagome's cheek. kagome could only just smile at him with a loveing face.
then he pulled her to his chest. "kagome..i'm so glad you came back to me." "i thought i'd never see you again." kagome put her hand on his cheek and whiped a tear away.
"it doesn't matter anymore my love.." "were married now and i'm not going anywhere." "i promise..." then inuyasha put his finger under kagome's chin, and preshed his lips ageainst hers. kagome kissed back and the kiss deepened to make it last forever.
as they broke the kiss inuyasha stared into kagome's eyes. Kagome.."lets finish this later after we go in the hot springs." kagome blushed really hard that her face was red as his fire rat kimono. "uhh..kagome?" "you okay?" he asked with a worried tone.
"oh uh yeah i'm fine." "it's just what you said after our bath.' then inuyasha started to laugh. "you were blushing cause of that?" you silly thing it's not like i havent seen you before. inuyasha was laughing really hard that he was rolling in the room.
"that's not funny inuyasha.."kagome said with a irritated voice. "don't worry i was only kidding kagome." "i wont do anything unless you want to." said inuyasha. "inuyasha.." "alright lets go eat dinner before it gets cold." then inuyasha lifted up kagome bride style and took her to the dinning room. "uhh inuyasha!" "what are you doing?!" "can't have my wife walking since your tired." said inuyasha with a grin. kagome gave inuyasha a kiss on the cheek. "feh i rather have a kiss on the lips." "now pucker up hon." said inuyasha with a chuckle. kagome sighed and did as he requested. kagome gave him a kiss but this time it was with more passion and love. feh, that wasn't hafe bad. now lets go eat. inuyasha put kagome down before they got to the dinning room while holding hands.
Shippo clapped his hands together and rubbed them anxiously. Looking at his latest prank he couldn't help but giggle before he scampered off after his prey.
Peaking around a bush, he found Kagome leaned up against Goshinboku with Inuyasha's head in her lap, his arms above his head and wrapped around her waist, hands clasped at her back. They were enjoying the crisp autumn afternoon, the leaves falling around them with the sway of the tree's branches. They were smiling warmly at eachother, Kagome tickling Inuyasha's ear with an orange leaf until it twitched. Each time she would giggle, he other hand touching him miscellaneously. Shippo eased back on his haunches, all ideas of terrorizing the hanyou now gone.
Never had Shippo seen Inuyasha so relaxed and the simple ease of the situation wasn't lost on the kit. You would never know to look at them now how volatile their relationship had been before Kagome was returned to her time for so long. There were times he was certain the oblivious hanyou would break the girl's heart one time too many times and she wouldn't come back from a visit home. There were also times he wondered about what the Inuyasha-shaped holes in the ground must look like in Kagome's time. But now there was such peace and happiness between them you would never think they fought with eachother a day in their lives together.
As the afternoon waned to a stunning sunset that fit the autumn theme of the day, Shippo continued to sit and watch the couple. Darkness began to creep through the village causing people to retreat back into the warmth of their huts. He watched as Inuyasha sat up and offered Kagome his hand, helping her up. Smoothing out her clothes the kit heard her wonder aloud where he was. Reassuring her he would return soon the man looked over his shoulder toward the bush Shippo was hiding behind and winked.
Thinking to himself he'll save his prank for another day Shippo came out of hiding to chase after his parents back to their hut.

As Kouga and Kagome entered the cave she went back to lay back down on her sleeping bag while he looked around. Sango, Miroku, Shippou and Kirara were moving stiffly from their sleeping positions, stifling yawns as they stretched. He found InuYasha sitting exactly where they left him when he had taken her to her bath at the hot spring. He sighed deeply, knowing this was going to be a challenge.
"Hey! Dog-breath!" Kouga bated. "The rain is going to let loose again. Let's go hunt before it's too late."
Surprisingly, InuYasha rose without argument and headed for the cave opening. He had barely moved from his chosen spot once he had walked away from Kagome the night before and hadn't slept at all. He was stiff, he was tired and he needed fresh air. Once outside and away from the cave he stretched, listening to his joints pop and feeling his muscles protest. What InuYasha needed was a run.
"Hey, wolf. I need a run. I'll be back." InuYasha shot to Kouga with a sideways glance.
"I think I could use a run myself. Mind if I come along?" With that, Kouga took off knowing InuYasha's competitive nature would make him follow and try to out run him. Seeing through his whirlwind he saw a streak of red shoot past him in the trees. They raced quietly for a few more minutes when Kouga caught wind of a deer and called out to InuYasha.
"Dog-breath! Don't forget we're supposed to be hunting! There's a deer nearby! I'm going for it!" And with that Kouga took off after his prey.
InuYasha growled, following his hunting companion. He was not in the mood for company or hunting. He simply wanted to run, only returning to the cave when it was necessary. He wasn't ready to see Kagome again now that he was away from her. He had made the decision to not leave the group, however he was nowhere near ready to allow her close to him again much less touch him. Didn't she realize what she had done? She had used her spiritual powers against him to subdue him. How could she not see how it was the same thing Kikyou had done and that situation still pained him? He had trusted her and she had betrayed him.
As he leapt from branch to branch his mind started whispering doubts about betrayal in his ear. InuYasha took a look at the big picture. Kagome had given her word to stay by him and she had. She took care of him, defended him, fought with him. She accepted him as he was and never went with Kouga all the times he had tried to lure her away. However, she had used her spiritual powers against him. He wasn't sure he could forgive that.
Kouga glanced over his shoulder at InuYasha. He was clearly in a world of his own, not caring about the hunt or that he was pulling up the rear. Kouga came up on the deer quickly, felling it with one swipe of his claws. As he stood over his kill he noticed red and silver coming up beside him.
"I'll clean it and we can head back," InuYasha offered, kneeling down to gut the animal.
"Hold on, Dog-breath. While I got you out here I want to talk to you about something." Kouga waited as InuYasha digested what he said.
"Make it quick, wolf, I don't want to get stuck in the rain hauling this carcass around." InuYasha motioned at the deer.
"What's your problem with Kagome?" Kouga asked simply.
"None of your business!" InuYasha was instantly mad.
"Look, mutt, you know I want Kagome as my own, and I know in your own twisted way you do as well."
InuYasha opened his mouth to protest but Kouga silenced him by holding up his hand and shaking his head.
"Deny it all you want but you wouldn't protest so much when I come around if you didn't. Now, the sooner you let me say what I got to the sooner we can get back to the cave and avoid the rain." Kouga said in a matter of fact tone of voice.
InuYasha nodded curtly and wait for Kouga to resume.
"I know that Kikyou chick stuck you to a tree with an enchanted arrow. I know Kagome used her spiritual energy to zap us out of fighting yesterday. I'm not so dense I don't recognize the problems you have with that. Kagome knows what she did was wrong and she wants to talk to you about it but you have to back down and let her near you. If you don't let her make this right she may not stick around."
With that Kouga kneeled down, made swift work of cleaning the deer and slung it over his shoulder to carry back to the cave. InuYasha followed behind, thinking on what he had been told.

"Kagome, I'm going to have to leave you for a short while. Will you be alright here until I get back?" Kouga asked, kneeling next to Kagome on her sleeping bag.
"But Kouga, it's pouring down rain! Can't you wait for a break in the storm?" Kagome's concerned eyes fell on Kouga's smiling face.
"Why, Kagome, I didn't know you cared so much!" He teased, causing Kagome to blush. "I have to go see if I can find Hakaku and Ginta. Knowing those two they're probably sitting under a tree in the rain instead of finding real shelter. I'll be back as soon as I can." With that Kouga spun out of the cave into the rain.
In truth Kouga had left to find Sessoumaru. He wasn't sure yet how he would goad the daiyoukai into following him close enough to the cave for InuYasha and Kagome to sense him, but something would come to him, he was sure. He had to be found first. When Kouga had run into InuYasha's small group the night before he had come close to running into Sessoumaru's group first. However, a whiff of Kagome was on the wind and Kouga went in her direction instead. The wolf prince hoped the storm had held up the Inu lord enough that he was still in the same area as he had been the night before.
As Kouga approached the small camp site he had found Kagome at he veered west toward where he had sensed Sessoumaru. There was only one other cave in the area that could be used for shelter and that is where he was headed. As he drew closer to the second cave he saw Ah and Uhn curled up in the opening and he knew he had the right place.
Kouga stopped about 50 feet from the opening to Sessoumaru's cave, looking for the Inu lord.
"What do you want, wolf?" came a reply from behind Kouga, causing him to spin in the mud. "What are you doing in The Western Lands?"
"Last night I came upon InuYasha and his group and led them to a cave nearby for shelter. Before I saw them I noticed you were nearby, as well. Although he is not in your territory I wanted to investigate how close the two of you actually were to each other. Kagome is in his company and I want no harm to come to her." Kouga replied, looking Sessoumaru in the eye.
"You will take me to my brother's cave. I will investigate this situation further." came Sessoumaru's curt reply as he stepped back to allow the wolf to guide him further.
Upon reaching InuYasha's cave Sessoumaru stood just out of the way of the entrance.
"InuYasha," Sessoumaru called simply. "Come out and face me."
InuYasha and his group appeared in the entrance of the cave, staring at Sessoumaru standing in the rain.
"Sessoumaru!" InuYasha bellowed. As was his way, he immediately drew Tetsaiga and yelled, "Wind scar!" slinging the attack at Sessoumaru.
Sessoumaru easily dodged Tetsaiga's attack, letting if fall onto the tree behind him.
The tree immediately splintered, falling to the ground.
Kouga, who had been standing off to the side of the cave watched the exchange between the brothers. This was going to go just as he had hoped.

"As impulsive as ever, little brother," Sessoumaru sneered at InuYasha.
"What are you doing here, Sessoumaru?" InuYasha bellowed, jumping from the entrance of the cave to land nearer to his brother.
"The wolf said you were near my lands so I came to see for myself. Lucky he was correct because now I can take the Tetsaiga from you. Prepare yourself, InuYasha." Sessoumaru growled as he swung his poison whip at his younger brother. InuYasha jumped, blocking the whip with Tetsaiga.
"Sessoumaru! You better leave or I'll shoot this arrow straight through your heart!" Kagome yelled at the daiyoukai, pointed her drawn arrow directly at his heart.
"You dare threaten me, girl! I take orders from no one!" With that Sessoumaru deserted his attack on InuYasha and leapt at Kagome, poison claws drawn.
"Kagome!" InuYasha yelled to her, "Move outta the way!" With that he hurled himself after his brother, throwing his body into Sessoumaru's side, knocking him off course.
Shippou jumped up on Kagome's shoulder, rapping lightly on her head with his tiny fist: knock, knock, knock.
"Kagome, is anybody home? If Sessoumaru attacks us here the opening of the cave could fall in and we would be trapped inside!" Shippou whined, a look of genuine concern on his small face.
"Gosh, Shippou, you're right! But we need to lead Sessoumaru away from InuYasha!" Kagome's mind worked frantically for a way to separate the brothers. "I've got it! I'll run to the right and shoot an arrow at Sessoumaru. That should draw his attention away from InuYasha and maybe he'll follow me. You guys stay here in case something goes wrong." With that Kagome ran into the rain and to the right of the opening of the cave, headed toward the road they had walked down the day before. As she got near the road she turned and shot an arrow at Sessoumaru. He turned from InuYasha just in time to dodge the arrow and flip his poison whip at Kagome, aiming for her head.
"Kagome!" InuYasha bellowed at her, forgetting about the battle with his brother and heading for her to snatch her out of the way before it was too late.
"InuYasha!" Kagome screamed back, afraid he would get hit under Sessoumaru's attack instead. At the last moment he slammed into her, snatching her off the ground and not breaking his stride. He continued to run with her until she was safely out of Sessoumaru's line of attack and sitting in a tree on the other side of the road.
"Kagome, are you ok?" InuYasha asked, looking over her quickly while he still held her to his chest.
"InuYasha, I'm fine. Are you ok?" Kagome asked him, grasping the shoulder of his haori, concern on her face for the hanyou.
"Keh. Let me finish him. I'll be back." InuYasha bounded out of the tree and back to the battle.
Once Kagome was out of harm's way Kouga left his position among the trees near the cave and attacked Sessoumaru. "I told you I did not want her harmed!" the wolf prince yelled at the daiyoukai, readying his fist to land a punch to Sessoumaru's face.
"She is none of my concern, wolf. I came for the Tetsaiga." Sessoumaru dismissed the wolf by turning away to face his brother again.
"Move it, you mangy wolf!" InuYasha yelled, knocking Kouga out of the way and receiving the punch to the face meant for Sessoumaru.
"No way, dog-breath!" Kouga countered, drawing his fist back for another blow.
Kagome watched from her perch as Kouga and InuYasha slammed into each other, InuYasha dropping Tetsaiga on the ground with the first punch from Kouga.
"InuYasha! Your sword!" Kagome screamed as Sessoumaru walked toward the discarded Tetsaiga and reached for it. Just as he was about to pick it up a barrier glowed around Tetsaiga, causing Sessoumaru to draw back with a painful hiss.
"InuYasha. It seems Tetsaiga does not wish to come with me today. I shall leave it in your care for now." With that Sessoumaru turned his back on his brother and left.

While Kouga led the way to the cave, Kagome followed behind him walking alone, Miroku, Sango, Shippou and Kirara walked together in the middle and InuYasha brought up the rear. He noticed the wolf was keeping a more respectable distance from Kagome. "Probably afraid to get zapped again," InuYasha thought, grinning evilly. The grin immediately fell when he remembered he had been zapped as well. His heart felt like it was clinching in his chest, skipping a beat every time he thought of the feeling to his skin. His mind was in complete turmoil. He was still shocked Kagome had used her spiritual powers to zap him and it brought the memory of Kikyou sealing him to Goshinboku. Kagome had never caused him to not trust her, but if she was willing to zap him over that mangy wolf, she might be willing to seal him to a tree as well. Maybe even purify him. The familiar feeling of betrayal was beginning to seep into his heart, clouding his judgment, making him doubt her.
Once inside the cave the group set about making camp. The cave provided enough room for everyone to fit comfortably and the opening was pointed away from the chilled wind. Kagome had been lucky enough to find some dry brush and wood just outside the opening and Kouga had started making the fire pit. InuYasha sulked quietly in the farthest, darkest corner of the cave, scowling deeply at Kagome. Just as Kouga was about to leave the sky let loose and the rain began to fall. As if it had been waiting for this moment all day, the rain poured down, trapping InuYasha, his small group and Kouga in the cave together.
Standing at the opening of the cave holding her pot in the downpour to gather water for their supper, Kagome wondered idly what happened to Hakaku and Ginta. She hoped they had found shelter from the rain. She turned and walked toward the fire to set the pot on to boil and started rummaging in her backpack for ramen. She thought it would be a good piece offering to InuYasha for zapping her earlier. As she looked around the cave she saw him sitting quietly by himself, his face set in a fierce scowl. It seemed his mood was extra foul thanks to Kouga being stuck in the cave with them due to the rain.
InuYasha had his back against the wall, his right leg stretched out in front of him, his left bent at the knee and brought up to his chest. Tetsaiga was leaned against his left shoulder and his arms were crossed over it with his hands tucked in his sleeves. As Kagome walked toward him she noticed his eyes didn't shift in her direction making her realize he had already been looking at her, yet the scowl didn't ease. To her dismay, it grew darker. As she kneeled down next to his right leg he shifted away, trying to stay out of her reach.
"InuYasha?" Kagome questioned, sounding confused.
"Don't touch me, Kagome," InuYasha warned, his voice cold and flat.
Kagome reached to touch InuYasha's shoulder and he growled, a low, threatening rumble in his chest. Everyone in the cave turned to look at them as she stared at him in shock.
"I will only say this once, Kagome, so listen good. You will not touch me again." With that InuYasha got up and walked away, leaving Kagome staring after him with her mouth hanging open.

Just after Kouga and InuYasha returned from their hunt the rain came down once again. InuYasha restarted their fire from the night before and set some of the deer up to cook. Kouga resumed his post by the cave door, Shippou and Kirara were playing chase, and Sango and Miroku were playing Go Fish with a deck of cards Kagome had given them while Kagome had settled on her sleeping bag with a book in her lap, studying.
Out of the corner of his eyes Kouga continued to watch InuYasha and Kagome, waiting to see what would happen. He noticed every so often, when she thought he wasn't looking, Kagome would sneak peeks at InuYasha but if he so much as shifted in her direction, she would turn away. They still weren't talking and she didn't want to get caught looking at him. She wasn't sure if she should go to him or wait for him to come to her considering he was the one who told her to stay away. She decided to wait. While she sat studying she kept her hand lightly over her heart, making it look like she was fingering the neckline of her shirt. Her heart was pounding in her chest and she thought surely he could hear her heartbeat. She figured keeping her hand over her heart would muffle the sound and help hide her anxiety.
Kagome was right, InuYasha could hear how hard her heart was beating, and keeping her hand over it didn't help muffle the sound at all. When she wasn't looking he would steal glances at her while he built the fire and readied the meat, however, he just couldn't bring himself to approach her just yet. He could tell by the way she held her body she wanted to come over to him but knew what he had said to her the night before was preventing it. He was starting to realize Kagome would never treat him the way Kikyou had, but for him, the moment she zapped him the foundation of their relationship was shaken. Common sense told him she would never hurt him because she never had. She would never lie to him because she lied to no one, and she would stand by him because she had given her word. So why couldn't he get over this? Why had she not just sat him and been done with it? Why did she have to take it so far?
As Kouga eyed InuYasha he could smell his apprehension. He, along with many, many others, could not understand what the problem was between these two. How they felt about each other was so painfully obvious to everyone else yet it was as if these two were blind to the only thing right in front of their faces. It was a ridiculous game of cat and mouse that had to be stopped. But, first things first! They needed to talk. Kouga needed to come up with a new plan. A plan that would force InuYasha to let his guard down enough to save Kagome in some way. Something that would cause InuYasha to charge in, sword drawn, to scoop Kagome up and carry her to safety. Kouga grinned evilly. What he needed was Sesshomaru.

There had been so much that had happened for all of them, bringing people together and tearing them apart. The Sengoku Jidai was already a dangerous place with roaming bandits, poor medical practices and archaic methods, childbirth was dangerous, disease was almost impossible to stop, and drought or flooding would ruin crops, causing food shortages and starvation. Simple things that could be easily fixed in Kagome's time easily killed in Inuyasha's. Naraku's existence changed dangerous living conditions to deadly.
Had the bandit Onigumo simply died from his injuries, he never would have met Kikyo, and Inuyasha's wish would have caused the Sacred Jewel to disappear. He would have been human, stayed with Kikyo, ad died young like so many other humans of his time. If Onigumo had died, Inuyasha never would have met or traveled with Kagome, and they never would have saved Shippo.
Shippo's father probably still would have died, but the young fox kit never would have tried to find the jewel shards to avenge him, therefore, never meeting Kagome. What would have happened to him in a world where he was alone? Would he have stayed the passionate, loving child he was or would a life of growing up without a parent harden and change him?
Kohaku never would have destroyed Sango's family without Naraku's influence. The demon slayer village would still exist. Sango and Kohaku probably would have been married off to people from their village and lived the life generations of villagers before them lived.
Miroku? He probably would have ended up killed by an angry husband, or cheated village headman. Had Naraku never interfered with his lineage, Miroku wouldn't have had a purpose in life, aside of womanizing or cheating people. He certainly never would have met Sango.
For as much as Naraku was key, so was Kagome. It was her influence that kept them all together. She changed Inuyasha, made him better. She took care of Shippo, letting him stay the child he needed to be. Without Kagome, Miroku and Sango wouldn't have come together. Kagome and Inuyasha finally destroyed the jewel, ending the horrible cycle of it's existence.
They all had started their Naraku-influenced journeys alone, but thanks to Naraku; they all were brought together to finish it in a life together. If ever a group of people lived that needed the help and influence of the people around them, this group of five were the beginning. They wouldn't have been who they were, nor would they be where they were, if it wasn't for the relationships they made that lasted them till the end.

After Simba and his mother left the tunnel to tell the others of the newest members of their pride, Kovu lay down beside his beloved mate and gently nuzzled her cheek. His eyes gazed down at his cubs that were to become the next generation, and future of the Pride lands.
"I still can't believe I'm a father now. I never thought I would one day have cubs of my own, let alone such beautiful ones like them..." Kovu stated as he gently licked each of their small, damp heads as they mewed in Kiara's paws.
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. "Well, I guess all there is to do now is to name them..." Kovu said as he began to think of names. Kiara smiled down at the little female who was now batting her little paws at her mother's nose. "Let's call her Kira, it fits her feisty nature, don't you think?" Kiara asked Kovu as he smiled and nodded in agreement. "That's a great name Kiara. What do you wish to call our son?" Kiara looked at Kovu and shook her head, smiling tenderly. "He is for you to name my love, for he will be your next heir to the throne." Kovu's heartbeat fastened greatly, he never had the honor to name a child of any kind. He thought long and hard on it until he smiled at his little son. "I will call him Lir." Kiara's face lit up happy as can be as she gently licked Kovu's cheek. "Then Kira and Lir will be their names." Kiara said as the loving parents tenderly cuddled up together with their new family.
Meanwhile, Simba and Sarabi finished telling the others of the next heirs being born. The whole pride exclaimed out with great joy, happy to hear the princess and prince were finally a complete family. After the joyful cries died down, Sarabi caught her son looking grim and sitting by the entrance of the den, watching the extremely violent storm rage on, something was amiss.
"Simba my son, is something troubling you my dear?" she asked with her old voice witch remained what seemed untouched but the curl fate of time, as Simba looked at his mother and sighed softly. "It's just Back in my cub years, father told me many tales of the land, but one sticks with me the most..." Simba said as lighting flashed in the sky. "O? Which one was that my dear?" Sarabi asked her son. "The Black Lion, known in the legend as Orochi. It's said that if twin cubs are born on the first day of the raining season, and it's a very bad storm, one of the cubs will be possessed over by the Black Lion and rule the end of the peaceful times of its pride... and...." "O Simba! Father only told you those spook stories to scare you. For goodness sake, you're a full grown adult now, you should know better than to believe such nonsense stories" she said laughing at her son as she began to walk away to rest. "Simba you worry too much.... everything will be fine".
Simba watched her leave to her sleeping place, he sighed and stared up at the rain still falling down hard, "Heh.... funny you say that mother. That's exactly what father said to me, about him and Uncle Scar..." Simba said under his breath as he walked out into the storm, hoping the rain would clear his head of all doubts for the future of his kingdom.
