Of Curious Ladies and Troubled GentlemenZola awoke as the sun rose into the sky showering its rays over the lionesses face. It was only dawn, but since she was awake now she figured that she would head out to stretch her legs. Luckily she sleeps not too close to the other lions so she did not have to worry about tripping over anyone. She let out a big yawn and made her way to the Kubwa River for a drink. It didn't take her long to remember that it was the wet season once she felt the muddy ground squish between her toes and attempted to take a dryer route to the river. Not too far away she spotted a rock that she could drink from as it hung low over the water. It looked much better than having her paws sink into the boggy land.More Like This
Once she was on the rock she lowered herself to lap at the water as it splashed at her face. Feeling wet from her drink and walk she decided to plunge into the shallow part of the river to wash off her paws. The water felt colder than she had expected, but she did not mind too much as she would

The Death of One Who Never BelongedDuni was laying beside the waterhole near the main Westland dens, flicking pebbles into the water and sulking. The heat cycle had returned with a vengeance, and it had her very cranky. If that wasn't all, she'd hardly been able to see Keto or her cubs at all, lately. The family never seemed to be in the same place in the same time. And even that wasn't all. Now she was having the nightmares again, and not just of murdering that Pridelander, Kai, which was bad enough. Now she was having nightmares about Baya's death, too. She had heard roars in the distance, why hadn't she gotten there sooner? Could she have saved Baya? Baya's cold, lifeless red eyes would stare at her, as would Kai's. Dead, accusing. Duni gave a tormented groan and swiped a bunch of dirt and pebbles into the waterhole with a snarl. She hated this pride! She hated it so much, now. All she had wanted in life was to matter, to be of help to her pride. Important. Valued. But no, she knew now it would never happen for her.More Like This
Queen Imes' First Royal DecreeQueen Ime of the Pridelands had only just begun her reign, but already there was so much that needed to be done, problems to solve, everything. To a new queen, it was quite overwhelming, and while she had her mate and king there to help her, and a loyal advisor who knew these lands better than she did herself, there was only so much they could do. She needed the pride at her back. She needed to lay down some new rules, so they knew where she was coming from. Everyone seemed to be getting away with anything these days, trespassing into other territories at will, slacking off when they should be patrolling the Pridelands' borders... Ime sighed. The security was terrible here. Years of peace had made the Prideland lions far too soft, and if war were to strike now, there was no way they'd be ready. Not to mention the intruders. Lions from other prides, mostly Westlanders, appeared to be coming in far too easily for Imes' liking.More Like This

Kaito's 4444 KiribanMore Like This
The Canterlot castle was surrounded by a swarm of the black, hovering Ponyta. They all gathered at the main room, where their King, Zero, had cornered both Princess Kaito and Saintei. Numerous time, Saintei had attempted to use an attack on King Zero, but all of his strength had been drained. Absorbed into the king himself. Princess Rev had been captured... "For later," Zero had said as he licked his lips. (Oh my Arceus what am I doing)
"I-I'm too weak," Saintei muttered in desperation. "I can't fight him."
Princess Kaito looked him straight in the eye, determined. "My love will give you strength," she said as she touched her muzzle to his.
The room was enveloped in a magenta light. The beams wrapped around the two like a coil of DNA. When the strings of light met, they let out a flash of bright white light that temporarily blinded King Zero. Saintei and Kaito were lifted into the air, the light getting stronger. At it's breaking point, more of the pink light emanated from both's heart
