Novinha giggled a little at his explanation, trying not to nark the conversation about her too much, so asked another question "Where is your family now?" She didn't think about how personal that question was until after she said it so just widened her eyes and took a large mouthful of meat, trying to make herself as calm as possible
"Oh my parents themselves still live by the lake. My mom's side of the family lives in like the main pridelands, and my dad's side of the family lives in the rival outerlands. The lake is a waterhole inside the main pridelands, but it is out far enough that it's about halfway between the two prides. I get to visit each side but only individually, cause they don't really get along. That's why my parents moved to the lake." he said, then asked. "Do you have any family?"
Novinha swallowed her mouthful and sighed "Oh... So your family are rivals in a way... I am sorry." She lowers her head thinking what it must have been like to have a rivalling family and it made her feel a pang of guilt in her stomach. At his question she looked up her eyes wide, but her voice hard "No. I have no one but myself, they died saving everyone else." She says hating their parents for their courage, but deep down loving them for it.
Novinha smiled, trying her best to with hold her emotions. She took another mouthful and said "It doesn't matter.... Their gone, that's it." She said matter of factly. "It's getting kinda dark, you wanna go find a place to stay?" She asks gently.
"you'll be alright here then?" Novinha asked softly, as she had not slept upon the ground in a long time, and would try to prevent having to as she is not exactly what you would call a good host, or friend material
Novinha starred up into the sunset, her eye lids were heavy and soon the sun dissapeared behind the trees, night sank in and Novinha slept, a quiet, peaceful sleep, the rough bark beneath her supporting her weight throughout the night
Novinhas eyes snapped open at the regular time, sunrise. She gently leapt from her branch and stretched away her night aches and then turned her gaze to the sleeping Bahari. He placed herself down and waited, waited for the lion to arise.
Novinha charged full on into the water, it splashing up her sides, her eyes wide and full of joy, her mouth open as it caught the occasional drip of clean water. She collapsed in the middle of the waterhole, letting it cool her fur.
