A Tale of Two Sisters by JeanZedlav A Tale of Two Sisters by JeanZedlav

Jasiri nearly jumped out of her fur as a lioness broke out from under the trees and rushed them, skidding to a stop nearly under Kion's nose. Zuri's always-perfect fur was ruffled and her eyes wide. The fear-scent made Kion's fur stand on end.

"Is Kiara all right? Why aren't you with her?"

"I don't know! She was having trouble with the birth and Nala order Tiifu and I out of the den! You have to see her," Zuri ignored Jasiri's presence, but neither moved to follow Kion as he padded toward the den. It was filled with the scent of blood and fear, and it took his eyes a moment to adjust to the darkness. 

"Come in, Kion. Kiara would want to see you," Kovu invited. Kion could just make out his parents at the back of the den, sitting close and speaking to Rafiki in a low rumble. The old mandrill looked his age for once. Kovu had blocked Kiara into the den with his body, and Kion had to watch for a moment to reassure himself she was breathing. Kovu shifted slightly, revealing two tiny cubs held within his paws. 

"The cubs, are they going to be ok?"

"Rafiki says if they last the night, they should live," Kovu licked the weaker of the two cubs gently, "before Kiara fell unconscious, she named them Aisha and Ziva."

"Will Kiara be ok?"

"I don't know," Kovu buried his muzzle in his daughter's fur, as if hoping their lives would give their mother strength, "the cubs were very early, and there was a lot of blood."

"But Rafiki was here-"

"He doesn't know either," The older lion met Kion's eyes, "Zaza went to fetch Kopa."


Had this sitting around forever. Used a reference for Kiara, Simba, Kion, and Nala and referenced from a base on Kovu.
