Ears twitching, the tawny lion woke up, opening his jaws in a wide yawn. He glanced around, spotting Nashana already awake. "Hey," he rumbled, smiling back. It was almost evening, the sun was dropping down, but there were still a couple hours of daylight left.
Korongo rolled to his paws and shook out his tan fur. He blinked at her, then strode forwards, taking the direction they'd been mostly traveling in. He let out a rumbling sigh and matched his pace to the lioness's.
They walked and walked. For two days they continued to move forward, stopping only to rest and hunt. Finally by the fifth day since they'd left the pride, they stopped. There was absolutely no trace of her former pride or any pride for that matter. They had found a beautiful oasis deep within the jungle. A waterfall flowed nearby, under which was a cozy dry cave. It was beautiful and perfect.
He glanced towards Nashana, smiling brightly. "That it is." he churred in agreement, casting his gaze back over the landscape before them. "What do you say, perhaps stick around here for a little bit?"
The young male pricked his ears and stepped forwards at a gentle pace, heading away from the waterfall-cave. He pushed through the thick ferns and lifted his head to take in the tropical scents. Glancing around, he smiled at the lioness, and matched his pace to hers. He didn't have any particular direction to head in, so he just walked forwards.
Korongo flicked his tail as they continued, keeping his gaze set straight ahead. A few clearings opened up in the jungle, the occasional stream ran by, and the two lions startled numerous small deer and rabbits out of the brush. Overall, he thought it'd be a good place to stay.
He gave her a gentle friendly nudge. "C'mon then, sleepy." he purred, smirking at her. He flicked his tail and changed direction, lifting his head to scent out the waterfall. He trotted forwards through the foliage, making sure to wait for Nashana.
Korongo trotted after her. He hesitated a moment before ducking under the falls, then strode into the cavern after Nashana. A yawn broke from his jaws, and he stretched his paws over the smooth stone surface. The male scooted forwards, finding a spot to settle down. He dropped down and curled up with a satisfied sigh.
