I STRONGLY suggest if you haven't watched COTW Episode 25 you NEED to watch it before you read this short Fanfic of what I think was going through Kia's mind in Episode 25! www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwlG7n…
Kia stood there quietly as she listened to her King and lover explain to his son with the one wolf that she really despised, "Mink". Whenever she'd heard that name from Rune's mouth especially when he mumbled her name in his sleep she would shudder at just the very thought of her name blowing on the wind was enough to put Kia into a spiraled frenzy.
"I thought he'd taken everything from me, but he did not take you, Lupis, I'm not bringing you home to kill you I'm bringing you home as a son the son I always wanted. The one with Mink. I want you my throne in the Kingdom I'm done being "The Mad-Eye King" all I want is to teach you to be better than I am." Rune explained as he looked at Lupis with the same love in his eyes he had for Mink all those seasons ago.
Kia was beyond speechless of Rune's words. As Rune's Par'Sherra shouldn't it have been discussed between the pair of them first before he stepped down from the throne unexpectedly? Then again, Rune had his reasons for what he did and Kia always followed orders without question. As the lowest rank in the Feather Feral pack, her rank are slaves or servants given to the higher ranking pack members and serve their masters for life. And Kia never questioned her Master's ways, ever.
Lupis looked Rune in the eyes with some caution still there in his yellow eyes. "If I go with you can you make sure the Kingdom Wolves come and help Luna?"
"Anything you want is yours, Young Prince." Rune was still giving Lupis the same look any real father would give their son. Love he really did love his son. Kia herself was even starting to see some resemblance of Rune in Lupis though he still looked like an image of that two-faced traitor, Mink with her dark, smoky dark-gray fur which her son had inherited from his bitch of a mother but Lupis had did indeed inherit something from his Grandfather, the long dead Alpha of Feather Ferals, Terok which was his yellow eyes.
"Okay," Lupis finally responded after a few moments of thinking. "I'll come home. Thank you… Father
" Marra growled in total anger and disbelief at what she was hearing. Kia had forgotten that Marra had been standing next to her she rolled her eyes and shook her head. Why couldn't she have been executed a lot sooner when Rune killed her pathetic father, the previous pathetic excuse for a "King" who ruled over the Kingdom of the West, Kahleel the Kind. She knew only to this very day the only reason Marra was alive was because Rune wanted to take her as a mate to pass on his place as king to his pups.
"Oh pipe down." Rune looked extremely board like Marra's outbursts where something he saw in his day to day life.
"Lupis, what are you doing?! He murdered
our family!" Marra was shocked as Rune lured Lupis away from her grasp. Her last connection to her father's bloodline was slipping from her paws as it felt like Lupis had died with the rest of her family.
"We aren't even related." Lupis looked at Marra like she was a stranger to him now that he knew the truth.
"He's lying! That's what Rune does, he lies!" Marra tried to lure Lupis back to her side but he wasn't budging not matter what or how hard she tried.
"IT'S THE TRUTH!
" Lupis had quite enough of Marra's outburst he had made up his mind and he wasn't changing his mind not even for the brown she-wolf he thought
was his cousin for all of these years.
be serious, Lupis, you weren't there. You don't know what he's done to our people, what he's done to me
! I am your family LISTEN TO ME!
" Marra growled as tears swelled up to the corners of her eyes. Memories of horrible experiences started to flow through her mind but she quickly shook them off."
You would have gladly see me die for your cause, why should I listen to you." Lupis only looked on at Marra coldy which only was starting to piss her off even more she got right into Lupis' face which caused him to take a few steps back from Marra in total surprise Kia was indeed enjoying Marra's little episode her anger always had amused her. "You are a coward I don't know how I could have believed in you!" Her lips where peeled back at Lupis as she had enough at this rate. Rune slowly approached Marra with a big smirk on his face. Kia's eyes followed her master as she tried not to let her amusement get the better of her. Oh how she loved this wolf so much.
"Oh… calm down, darling, you've lost just like your father lost before you. It runs in your family, accept it and move on." His famous malevolent smile creeps across his face quite quickly as he turned back to Kia the pair put their heads close together and start to talk quietly "We'll have to move quickly to reach the Kingdom--" "NO!
" Marra suddenly leaps towards Rune. Pure rage had taken total control of her body and before both Kia or Lupis could breathe a single word Marra's teeth gripped for Rune's throat so tightly she tore a huge chunk of his blue-gray fur and flesh away from his neck in a bloody mess in which Rune let out one last painful howl and he collapsed as Mink's jay feather fell from his neck and his own cardinal feather from his tail to the ground blood pooled from his jugular into the snow as he let out gargled sounds and looking up at Marra with utter shock in his eyes.
Marra picked up the feathers in her teeth and looked at Rune with victory in her eyes she had won she had finally avenged her family and she couldn't be more proud. "See this? You'll die without your Brother in Flight Rune, I have torn of your wings!" Marra smiled with Rune's blood staining her lips as she clutched her trophy tight between her teeth. Kia and Lupis both looked at the scene before them in total horror. Kia especially was at a loss for words her one true love now lay dead at Marra's feet she wanted to scream Rune's name but just couldn't find her voice.
Marra let go of the jay and cardinal feathers and let them loft gently down to her paws as she stood proudly over Rune's corpse.
"I AM MARRA, DAUGHTER OF THE HONORABLE KING
KAHLEEL THE KIND AND IT IS YOU WHO HAS LOST!"
Well guys, that was my thoughts of what was going through Kia's mind in Episode 25. I can't wait to see how she will react in Episode 26 maybe she will join Rune shortly after when fighting Marra. Or do the smart thing and escort Lupis quickly away from Marra and back towards the Kingdom. But it is Tribble's show and only she can control what happens next but we can dream right?
