It was a beautiful day in the Pridelands, I was taking a walk to the meadow to practice my running.
Suddenly I heard laughter in front of me, I smiled when I saw Kion and Bunga playing baobab ball.
Suddenly I got a grin on my face and decided to see if I could run past them.
As I flew past them I heard Kion laughing and felt a weight settle on my back.
I glanced behind me and let out a growl of annoyance when I saw Bunga sitting on my back waving to Kion.
Bunga turned to me with a grin.
"Hi Fuli," he said innocently.
I rolled my eyes and huffed with annoyance.
"What are you doing Bunga" I growled.
"Oh just hitching a ride, why?" Bunga replied.
"Bunga did you know I get angry if I have an unexpected passenger on my back" I growled.
Bunga barely had time to reply before I lurched forward flinging him off my back and into the grass.
Kion ran past me laughing.
"Hi Fuli, bye Fuli," he said.
"Hi Kion," I said.
I watched Bunga and Kion wrestle each other with a small smile on my face.
I sighed as I didn't know what'd I'd do without Bunga and Kion.
I wandered over to a tree and sat down.
Suddenly I heard movement and whispers in the grass behind her.
I wandered over to investigate.
I was greeted by the sight of Kiara and her friends Tiifu and Zuri.
"Oh Hi, you must be Fuli, it's nice to meet you," Zuri said politely.
"Hi, Kiara, whatcha doing?" I asked, after giving Zuri a nod.
"Daddy's letting us track gazelles as part of my training to be queen" Kiara explained.
"Wanna come with us?" Zuri asked.
"Maybe next time, I've got some serious running to do," I said.
"Ok see you later Fuli," Kiara said with a wave of her tail.
She, Tifu, and Zuri began to make their way towards the savannah.
I watched them go with a sad smile on my face.
Suddenly I was startled by a loud booming roar.
I blinked with surprise, then glanced at Pride Rock. Simba and Nala were talking to Rafiki and I could barley make out a few lionesses sleeping in the den.
"Who made the roar?" I asked myself.
Suddenly a thought struck me.
"It would have to be Kion's roar, but he isn't old enough to make a roar like that, I wonder what's going on and what'll happen next" I murmured.
She began walking back to Pride Rock.
