Nyama too walked to the waters edge again and drink once more "It feels so good to drink.." she said quietly, bur then she heard a rustle and spun around and lowered herself to her haunches and listened carefully, she didn't wasn't to have to deal with other predators, especially not lions.
Nyama saw a flash of dark gold and she took a shaky breath out, she dreaded that it was the rogue lions and she gave an involitary shiver. One of the lions lifted their heads and stepped out into the full open, it was as she dreaded. This lion was a familiar face to Nyama, it was in fact one of the leading heads to the rogue pack she escaped. He gave a cruel smile as he looked at Nyama and said in his gravely voice "Look it is little Nyama. Boys come look it is our little girl, all grown up." he looked at her as if she was a meal and she backed away, all the cruel memories she had flooding back. She growled as several other fully grown males emerged from the grass with the same cruel smile on their maws.
The lion simply laughed and said "I see someone has won your heart." she snapped and ran for the lead lion, leaping upon his face and tearing at his mane and cheeks. "My heart belongs to no one!" she growled in his face and as the other lions came running towards her she flipped the lions head backwards and heard the roar of the lion beneath her, he tore her from his front with a bloody smile. When Nyama looked down and the adrenaline had worn off slightly she felt a deep pain and she saw her blood dripping down her front, coming from the several large gashes in her chest. She roared in anger and looked at the lions surrounding her with hard eyes and furrowed brow.
The lion with a bloodied face stared at Nyama "So you do remember me. So you know our terms, come or die." he said bluntly, blood still dripping from his open wounds. She growled and gave Nassir a questioning look "Let him be Sukai and I will come." Sukai gave her a hungry look and said dryly "He too must come, you never know we might just get hungry." he said the last part sourerly and signalled for the lions to stop attacking "Make your choice."
Nyama growled and looked at Sukai "Why are you doing this?!" she was not confused as to how he was doing it but why they were so set on bringing Nassir along. "Our 'pride' is short of lionesses and cubs and seeing as you are all grown up.." he trailed off with an evil grin and turned his gaze to Nassir "We need him for bait and extra strength." he said sourly.
it had been just over a month and Nyama had managed to avoid almost all contact with other living beings, including food. She had barely had any social contact and plenty of time to let her anger boil. She knew he isolation would be spoiled soon and knew it would most likely be by a hungry male, but she would defend herself no matter what condition she was in.
It was mid-day and Nyama was sleeping in the hot sun, trying to ignore her thirst and warm ground beneath her body. The lions were basking beneath a tree and she hoped Nassir was among them and safe.
Sukai arose from his resting place and took a long breath in and turned his head to the side "We have company, female company." he walked over to the nearby shrubs and snarled "Don't be afraid we wont kill you."
Sukai narrowed his eyes "We are siblings in need of comfort, there are some of us here who have seen the potential strength in being a part of a pride and we have graciously let them join, as long as they can hunt and fend for the pride. There is nothing sad about that." He didn't move towards her simply stood still, giving her a direct stare.
Sukai gave Nassir a harsh stare then turned back to shujaa "Don't make it sound so unpleasant." he said in a fake soft voice before taking a step towards her and narrowing his eyes further "We have a lioness but she is unwilling to complete her duty on earth and bare cubs, and so we are in a spot of bother."
Sukai gave her a small nod and smile before leading her under the shade of a tree that was distend to the one the other males were collected under.
Nyama saw two walking towards the tree from where she rested and saw that one of them was female. She whished that no other lionesses would be found but it appeared that there were still lionesses unfortunate enough to be found. She pushed herself to her feet and began walking towards the original shade tree that the males were gathered under. She wanted to talk to Nassir, she knew it was stupid but she needed some comfort and he was the only one vaguely possible of giving it to her.
