The Pride Land Chronicles Chapter 4Mufasa and Taka grew more as each day went by, as did their knowledge of the Pride Lands and its laws. Ahadi knew the time was coming when he would have to pick one of them to follow in his paw prints, he'd been putting it off for so long and now his cubs were nearing their teenage years. He had to make a decision and he knew it had to be soon.
"Are you okay?" He heard Uru ask as she sat down next to him at the edge of Pride Rock.
"Yes, Uru. I'm just thinking about our sons." He said with a sigh.
"About which will be your heir?" She guessed as she glanced back to the cave. The sun was only just beginning to rise; the cubs still had a while before they would wake up.
"How did you know?" He asked with a thoughtful frown.
"Since Taka wandered off from you that night when you were talking about the Great Kings you've been looking at them both differently; like you're analysing them." She said in a worried tone.
"How do I pick one of them? It's unhealthy to be faced with choices like this
The Pride Land Chronicles Chapter 2The time passed quickly and Uru soon became a young lioness, she learned very quickly and fast became the leader of the hunting parties. Mohatu was very proud of his daughter and knew she would make an excellent queen. Ahadi on the other hand became a strong male lion and the bachelor of choice for most of the lionesses in the pride, but he already had his eye on someone. Ahadi watched as Uru lead the rest of the lionesses off to hunt for the pride, his tail flicking anxiously as he considered a way to tell her about his feelings for her.
"What's wrong, Ahadi?" Mohatu asked as he walked up to the younger male. He noticed Ahadi was nearly his height now and had become a much stronger lion than when they had met.
"Oh, it's nothing." He said with a friendly smile to the king.
"They'll be back soon." He said with a knowing smile as he began walking over to the waterhole. Ahadi was dumfounded for a moment before he realised the king was smart enough to see the signs of his crush on Uru.
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
