Zira and Azalia by SimbaRoar Zira and Azalia by SimbaRoar
It was dark. The entire pride had settled into deep sleep, including their cruel king. This was a chance for the troubled queen and her daughter to rest, but the queen couldn't sleep. Nether could her young child.

"Mother?" The child's voice squeaked, "Look at all those shining things in the sky!"

Queen Azalia cringed at the thought of her husband being so ignorant not to teach the child about the wonders around her, "Zira, those are stars."

"St-ars?" The young cub tried to pronounce.

"Yes, they are amazing little things, aren't they?" Azalia looked at her daughter with joy.

"They are, indeed." Zira grinned. "Mother, what are they like?"

"Like? Well, now, let's say that they watch over us." She replied.

"How?" The young cub asked.

"I would tell you the story, but it's past your bedtime."  Azalia chuckled.

"Please? Just this once!" Zira pleaded and jumped.

"I do suppose. Now, sit down or I will not tell you." Azalia grinned warmly.

"Okay, mother." Zira sighed.

"Zira, let me tell you something my father told me. Look at the stars. The great kings of the past look down on us from those stars." Azalia thought of the times of her father.

"Really?" Zira whispered.

"Yes. So whenever you feel alone, just remember that those kings will always be there to guide you. And so will I." Azalia spoke wisely.

"Mom?" Zira asked.

"Yes, honey?" Azalia replied.

"We're pals, right?" Zira asked, confused.

"Right, Zira." Azalia replied again, this time tickling her daughter's belly.

Zira chuckled, "And we'll always be together, right?" Zira asked.

"Everything in the world has its season. Where one thing falls, another grows. Maybe not what was there before, but something new and wonderful all the same." Azalia spoke.

"I don't get it, But I'd feel so alone without you." Zira sighed, nuzzling her mother.

"I'm always going to be with you. Even when you can't see me, I'll be here." Azalia nuzzled Zira back.


Sweet story, huh? Azalia is my version of Zira's mom. Machu is the father. This is part of a story I'll write eventually.
