Im hungry she complained. Im tired, and my feet hurt.
Haba, we should keep going, Majuto said, looking back at her.
And dont worry, Haba, Dhalili said. If I remember correctly, the lion I told you about should be close by. And Im sure well be fine as long as we dont run into any jackals, we can handle the mangy, flea-infested, drooling scavengers.
Looking for someone ? snarled a scary voice.
The cubs looked around as they heard quiet footsteps, and huddled together.
Dhalili ? Majuto said nervously.
Yeah? She answered with equal uneasiness.
Who said that? Majuto asked.
Well, why dont we introduce ourselves? said the same voice, which sounded feminine, but sinister. They looked through the golden grass as thr

Yes? He asked feeling a bit exasperated from being thrown and used as a pouncing target.
Sir, news from the underground! Gopher said with a salute.
Now, this time- Yueh said, about to give more tips to his students on pouncing when Zazu said, Your Excellency! An emergency! At the watering hole!
Yueh leapt over Zazu, saying, Asadi, come! Zazu, take the other cubs home!
Asadi went over to his father as Kivuli asked, Aw, uncle Yueh, cant we come?
No, nephew, this is a private lesson for Asadi, Yueh said, picking Asadi up in his mouth before running off.
Sighing with disappointment, Kivuli, followed by Majuto and Nyota and Zazu, started back for Pride Rock as he said, We never get to go anywhere
Oh come now, young master! Zazu said. Someday, youll be ki

Wow! They said excitedly. They began to go down the steps when Yueh appeared in front of them so suddenly, saying, Whoa!
He picked up Asadi by the scruff of his neck and eyed the others to follow. On the rock in front of the entrance to the cave, he put Asadi down as he and the others tried to follow a butterfly but he used his paw to stop them as they laughed.
Wherere you all off to in such a hurry? He asked with a smile, picking up Nyota as she said, Daddy! Let go!
Yueh did so and said in a parental tone, Now I just want you all to be careful.
The cubs tried to chase the butterfly again, only to be stopped as Yueh put his paws on all their tails. Cubs, are you listening? Accidents can happen. You can get easily hurt or get-

"What is it?"
"Are you ok?" Kovu questioned, leaning forward to him curiously. Simba response was; rolling his eyes and sighing deeply, with the obvious look of aggravation upon his face.
"Look..." He said, beginning to explain. "...I only took in that cub because the same thing happened to me. I have been through something like that before." He added, calmly but still in an authorizing tone.
"I understand what you mean Simba, but..."
"No you don't!" Simba interrupted loudly, bearing his teeth, causing everybody in the cave to run out in panic and wonder of why the King was yelling.
"What's going on?" Kiara asked from the group. Even the cubs and Majuto had gathered.
"I take him in for one day...and he chooses to tell me now
children of pride rock.4"Hey there he is, get him!" Someone yelled from behind him, his heart fell as he pelted himself down the never-ending lands and grasses. Suddenly he was tackled from behind, he closed his eyes tight as he fell to the floor and skid as he picked up dirt and dust. He slowly opened his eyes and could see he was surrounded by three creatures, all laughing at him as he lay on the floor. He began to pant and panic. It was Hyenas!
"Hi there." One said to him slyly. The cub could instantly tell it was a female. He tried to run away from her, but was stopped dead in his tracks by another creature, blocking his escape route.
"Where are you going?" It asked evilly, as it raised its arm and swiped the cub swiftly with extended claws. The cub fell immediately to the floor and whimpered pathetically.
"Awww, look at him. He doesnt look like he likes this." The female spoke in a patronizing manner.
"Do you, huh, squirt?" She added through bared teeth and pushing her head against his face. Sudden
