Summary: Two cubs from two different prides, who have both lost their parents, find foster familes and new problems; all with a snow liger, a cheetah, and a raptor on their trail.
Peter, while traveling with his mother on the border between the desert and the savanna, was surprised by a creature that was hiding in the tall grass. Frightened, Peter ran to his mother, but the strange, reptilian, bipedal creature blocked his path. Snarling and snapping the creature pushed Peter back until he backed into a large rock. Finally, the creature stopped his attack and turned to look over his shoulder. Peter looked past him to see his mother dead, a masked cheetah standing over her. Peter screamed in denial, but the cheetah and his partner, who called himself Saka, only laughed. As the cheetah approached Peter, he introduced himself as Qymaen, and tells him "that is the last thing that you (Peter) will ever see." Before Qymaen could strike, out of nowhere, a lion-like creature intervened. The tawny creature knocks Qymaen back and surprises Saka, while telling Peter to run.
Peter took a chance and ran as fast as his legs could carry him, leaving his mother's body behind him. He managed to run into a thick forest before Qymaen and Saka were able to catch up to him. Exhausted, he hid in a tree and waited, breath held, for his enemies to pass under him.
Manzi and Shani are taking shelter under a tree from a rain shower when Manzi spots a lone, brown lion cub lying in the grass. Manzi feels sorry for the shy, abandoned cub, who calls himself Garoe and offers to take him back to the Savanna Pride. Shani is reluctant to the idea at first, but with coaxing from Manzi, he decides to let Garoe climb onto his back and ride with Manzi.
Garoe is soon accepted into the pride by lead lioness Dafini, Antonio's mate. Manzi is delighted, as are the other cubs in the pride. Kenobi, however, is not pleased by the outcome. He is hoping to be acepted into the Savanna Pride as Antonio's son, but has yet to do so.
