He froze for a moment. "Yeah, s'all good. Just havin' some talks wit' the rogues 'ere. 'parently some lion got mad cause we was passin' through his turf on the way 'ere wit'out his permission. I worked things out wit'im."
He stopped talking, coughing a bit and staring blankly at a point on the floor, not displaying any sort of emotion, really.
Timidly, Mama Mlezi walked up to his side and whispered in his ear. "Ya' need one of ta' lionesses fo' comfort, maybe a massage, my boy?"
"Nah, ma, I'm good. Jus'... got any food?"
"I do, honey, I do" she said, wrapping her arms around him and going off. "I'll have t'at 'eah roight now. T'is room's your's fo' ta' night."
"Hey, thanks, ma." he said blankly.
"No issue for a fellow rogue." She said, leaving the room.

Wapo just went stone cold on her, moving to a corner of the cave near the window opening and curling down to sleep.
"Yeah. Leg be actin' up. Tha's it. S'all. Jus' need some sleep."
He looked up at Kela, noting her concerned look. "Wha's wrong? You can do what you do fo' now. We got a whole night 'ere. You ain't a fan a' tha' singin'?" he asked, trying to avoid thinking too much about the act he just committed.
"If you expect me to run off and have fun while my friend is having a problem, then you really don't know me." Kela says, then moves closer to Wapo. "Now, what's eating ya? If you don't want to talk about it, then talk about something else."

He simply looked at her with weary eyes, and in a raspy voice, spoke his first words of emotional honesty in a while. "F'I eva' had a soul, it been drained out of me a long time ago. Sold fo' somethin, killed, o' given ta' someone else... But I ain't got it."
"Someone soulless wouldn't have done right by me like you have." Kela counters softly. "Just because life was hard on you, doesn't mean that you're an empty shell. You're not as bad as you think you are."
Kela really didn't want to leave him alone, but understands. "I'd rather sleep. It's been a long travel. Any place for me to sleep, since you don't want me here right now? I don't trust anyone else here to watch my back while I sleep." She sighs a bit.

He couldn't resist the pressure anymore as he took a sharp breath in, unable to help when a tear rolled down his face as he struggled not to break down from his sorrow.
"I... I'm tired... I'm tired a' havin' ta' kill... I'm tired a' bein' forced into 'dis life where I have ta' survive by doin' bad things, because I've done too many awful things to live a good life..."
He opened his red eyes and risked a look at Kela. "I'm tired a' life..." he said, his eyes watering and forming streams of tears down his face.

He dug the side of his head into the side of her shoulder trying to calm himself, to little effect. By this point, it was as if he couldn't speak. He nodded at Kela's suggestion, finally sharing with somebody the emotions he'd been bottling up for, by this point, a year. Unable to hold much back by this point, he wrapped his arms around Kela and dug his face into her fur, crying audibly now, as if the floodgates to his soul had just burst open.
Not sure what else to do, Kela awkwardly pats his shoulder with her paw. "It's okay, Wapo." She says, trying to console him. She manages to adjust both of their bodies to where they were laying on the ground.

abalancedbreakfast: Yeah, it was fun RPing on here back when it was active. I think it's just... not gonna happen anymore though.
Apr 8, 2020 2:30:37 GMT
cheezeegriff: I'm always keen to RP here. T'was sad when the last one died
Apr 8, 2020 2:34:54 GMT
prismatic: I've got a thread going with Cheezeegriff. Im hopefull and willing to take on several characters to RP with those who are willing
Apr 8, 2020 2:36:46 GMT
prismatic: the board seems to get alot of guest traffic, they prob just need to see a little activity to be willing to stick around
Apr 8, 2020 2:39:29 GMT
abalancedbreakfast: I do have an idea, it'd combine aspects of Lion RP and a geopolitical RP group I used to be a part of too, imagine playing Risk but with lion prides
Apr 8, 2020 2:44:50 GMT
prismatic: soo sort of like TLK RP with a game of throne-ish type plot line? sounds like it could be fun Of course there would prob always be a fair mix of those looking to take over others and those content just to hold onto their own lands.
Apr 8, 2020 2:53:58 GMT
prismatic: The RP I was a part of years ago had many diffrent lands with prides and tribes who had a mix of allies and enemies respectfully. There were always plots going on back and forth between them. It made for very interesting RP
Apr 8, 2020 3:09:23 GMT
prismatic: There was all that and individual plots between characters and it sort of all tied together. Wouldn't be hard to start something like that here if yu guys wanted to. all we'd need is a few of us willing to start a pride as a leader and also willing to RP
Apr 8, 2020 3:11:20 GMT
prismatic: a character or two in the other prides. Then guests that visit hoping to find an active board will see RP going on and hopefully jump in with characters of their own
