Searching for a home....

Post  zabor on Sat Jul 23, 2011 8:38 am

Otieno sighed as he snuck across the charred grounds, looking around slowly for any sign of other lions or life in general. Shaking his mane he found a small pool of water, and while drinking he listened, letting his sencetivity for warmth spread out, searching for life again. Still, he found nothing. Sighing low he looked at the sky, seeing the clouds heavy with water. Frowning slightly he quickly found shelter, under some rocks, and waited, knowing no one would be out in the worst weather. Curling up he waited, wanting to stay untill the rain had passed, though he wondered if the rumours of a pride with different lions living ehre was true, and if so, if they would take in yet another mouth to feed.

With these thoughts in his mind, he fell asleep.

With rain came the new hope of plants growing from the charred ground. The cool water felt good running through the pelt of the feline that padded down the border. Soft golden fur now dulled and soaked, purple stripes and violet eyes softly glowing in the dark of the storm. Her brown legs covered in mud, making it almost impossible to notice her hooved back legs. The six horns on her neck were cold, sending shivers through her body. She had left on a patrol not only to check the borders but to possibly find food as the pride's supplies were dwindling. She stopped, letting her paws soak into the damp ground. Lifting her head to the sky she shut her eyes and let the cool rain run on her face. Scenting anything in the rain was pointless, but she figured she could still enjoy this gift of rain before it was to be hot and dry again. Silently she wished she could have brought Koji along, but she knew if she would have run into that lioness from the other pride again things would get messy. And she didn't want to lose the little one.

The Tallion sighed and gave a small roar in frustration at the memories of the fight. She wasn't good enough to have protected the Queen. If she was a better warrior, she could have prevented all the wounds Aurora sustained. With a huff the female tallion sat, this was the first time she was able to be alone from anyone in the pride. The first time since she had joined that she could let her emotions show. Little did she know that in the rocks next to her was a rogue lion new to the lands. With all the rain, she wasn't able to smell him.

Otieno had become aware of the approaching lioness instantly when she came within 20 feet of him, and he had been watching her curiously ever since, seeing her despite the rain. He blinked at how she looked, and felt a slight leap of joy in his chest...she was like him, different from other lions. He was about to stand and greet her when she roared, causing him to leap back a bit, watching her surprised for a bit, soon realising that she was sad, and angry for some reason.

Shy as he was, he did not want to ruin his first chanse to meet the pride he had heard about, and shly he spoke up. "H-Hello...are you alright?"

The Tallion jumped at the sound of another's voice. She was not expecting company, and as she turned to look in the strangers direction she soon realized this one wasn't part of the pride. She got to her four and shook herself as if ridding her pelt of the rain although it was pointless. She huffed at him hiding her embarrassment not knowing how much he'd seen. "I'm fine." she said in a calm voice then looked him over, He was brightly colored and reminded her much of some of the other pride members. "... What are you doing here?" She tried her best to stay calm, but she knew if anyone else was to find her here with a stranger, she could be in trouble. She remembered Aurora's orders from the other day. But without any back up, it would be useless to try and force a large male back with her. No, instead she would see if he would come at his own will, or if he would promptly leave.

Otieno watched her, sitting down slowly to avoid seeming dangerous. Tilting his head he watched her, a bit embarresed that he had startled her. Nodding slowly he looked down on the ground shyly, ears moving slowly before looking at her carefully. "I...came here following a rumour...about a pride of...lions who...are like me...not normal..." He watched her, hoping he had not insulted her...or any pride members she might know, by calling them not normal. Flicking his tail a bit he shook water from his mane, watching her curiously.

The Tallion's glowing violet eyes looked him over as he spoke. He didn't seem like a threat, and acted as if he was shy. She flicked her tail as she thought for a moment. On one paw, he seemed nice enough and the Queen and King would be more accepting. On the other, it would be another maw to feed and with such a shortage of prey... She huffed and shook her pelt again, "How good are your fighting skills?" She said in a calm tone hoping the question would not provoke him, She needed to be sure he could fight at least. "Our pride is at war, If you wish to be accepted, offer your skills to the Queen and King when you meet them." She said and walked slowly around the male circling him and looking him over.

The rain was getting worse and the Tallion figured getting out of it would be good for both of them. She flicked her tail and walked passed him a few steps before turning, "Come on, I'll take you to the pride. They will want to judge you." She then padded forward at a slowly pace, making sure he was going to follow before she lead him any deeper into the territory.



(After you post we can continue this in the judgment hall :3 I'll make a thread ^^ )

His tail flicked nervously as he watched her, blinking at her glowing eyes, almost too focused on that to hear her question. Tilting his head he lowered his head, tail flicking slowly. "um....I guess Im good...I havent lost the few fights I've been in yet..." He looked at her, keeping his head low, as small sparks came from hsi mane. "I've had the upper paw in most fights, thanks to my....abilities." Watching her for a bit he nodded slowly, seeming to relax a bit more as she talked.

"A-alright..." Stuttering slightly he started to follow her, thinking about how one might want to act around a king or queen. Shaking hsi head he knew he couldnt know, and had to just put on his most nice behaviour.
