Open Your Eyes by Wolf-Chalk Open Your Eyes by Wolf-Chalk
"Until the Pridelands end! Lion Guard defend!"

ROAR!
YIPE!
YIPE!

...

The cheetah was hardly aware of what was happening around her from the blood loss, her head slumped down as she shakily tried to protect Tai. The cub was so lost, he didn't understand why his mother no longer move. Why the once beautiful world around him stank of death and how these menacing, laughing shadows were the cause of it. His eyes, full of innocence, only stared toward the hyenas who'd just slain Tiifu, licking the blood casually from their maws and paws.

Fuli only heard Janja's toxic voice between her fading senses, taunting her softly as he stood over the fallen spotted cat. "Look at what you've done Fuli. If it weren't for you, she would still be alive."

"Still alive! Still alive!" The other hyenas echoed, Fuli vaguely knowing two distinct voices of Cheezi and Chungu.

He was right, it was her fault... She should have never agreed to let Tiifu come with her, she should have fought harder. Now she was on her way to the stars, the bloody body a mere shell. Tai was in danger, Fuli couldn't protect him any longer either. The Fastest tried to hold tighter, cradling the boy in her weakening arms to shield him from the wicked world.

"Open your eyes Fuli..." Janja demanded coldly.

"Open them!"

"OPEN THEM AND SEE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE!"

Kion stood over his friend, bruised and lightly caked in blood from where the stray hyenas that weren't assaulted by his roar managed to strike. Panting heavily, his concern was through the roof at the wounds she possessed. Fuli was practically torn apart, a gash upon her throat the main cause of all her life blood draining out. He'd attempted to clean the wound but no matter how hard he put pressure with his tongue or paws, the bleeding just wouldn't stop. Kion was trembling too much, grieving for his wife and already grieving for Fuli as he feared she too would die before him.

He'd heard the cries of the cheetah from across the PrideLands and when he arrived...

Kion could only tightly shut his eyes to stop himself from breaking into hysterics. It took his entire might not to address the fallen body of his wife once again...

"You're too late Kion!"

There, surrounded by savage gray carrion dogs was his Tiifu. Everything just turned red around him as he erupted into a fury. He'd braced his paws apart, lifted his mighty head and unleashed a roar unlike one the PrideLands ever saw. The clouds had turned practically black, lightning flashing as rain picked up pace against his broad back. The Great Kings joined his agony, obliterating the hyena clan where they stood. When his eyes opened once more, bloodshot and growing moist with tears, the fields were ripped apart. Trees broke and bent beneath the force his roar gave, parts of the ground even split apart. The hyenas were no where to be seen and that's how Kion wanted it...


"Great Kings... TIIFU!"

Sobs broke from his throat when he realized she wasn't responding, no matter how he pushed or prodded, she did not move. The Lion Guard leader pushed his face into hers, quietly begging that she not do this to him, to their cub and family. Kion's legs had buckled from beneath him, he didn't have the strength or will to stand.

"Please... Please get up! Don't leave me alone Tiifu... Tiifu!"

"Mew! Mew! Mew!"

It wasn't until he'd found Fuli barely clinging to life with Tai crying between her paws did he force himself apart from Tiifu's body. He struggled so badly, hastily breathing and dragging his shaking legs toward the cheetah. She was unconscious but held his son tightly to her, jaws agape and claws continuously flexing to fight off the demons haunting her mind.

"Please Fuli... Open your eyes!" He begged once again, paws framing her face as he turned her over to lay on her back.

Tai was pressed into her side, the cub crawling to nuzzle her bloodied cheek, not understanding why his cheetah protector was not responding. 

"Great Kings, help me!" Kion uttered, shoving his face into her fur with a choked sound, drawing back as he took in a breath to steady himself. He'd failed to protect his wife, he wouldn't fail Fuli. With a lingering glance toward Tiifu, he ached at the notion he would have to leave her behind. She couldn't be saved any further, gone from the mortal realm. "Tiifu... I'm... I'm sorry," he weakly said, breath hitching before he attempted to haul Fuli onto his back.

Gently adjusting her, he prayed moving her would not cause her to completely bleed out. If he didn't get her to Rafiki, thus moving her, she would die regardless. Her face was pressed into his mane, paws hanging over his shoulders and hind quarters as she was blanketed across his spine. He reached down to grab Tai from his scruff, the cub gave no protest but his eyes stared at the limp form of his mother.

It was as if he were asking why she wasn't coming with them. Why wasn't he doing something as a father should. Tai had awakened his mother plenty of times but this was a sleep she could not return from. Kion forced himself to hurry, breaking into a run as his eyes burned with tears. It took every last ounce of his turmoiled soul to leave Tiifu there alongside his broken heart. All he could think now was to save Fuli and inwardly, he prayed desperately.

"Please open your eyes...!"

Janja can and will win. He needs to stop being a coward and face his fears. I feel his pain and I know very well how he feels. He will not lose to a stupid, stinky lion cub. Kion is the one whos going to get it next, not Janja. And the scar will symbolize Janja's struggle to prove to lions that hyenas are more superior to them. Tiifu is dead and I'm glad she's deadLa la la la . Kion deserved to lose her. Hyenas should've killed that lion cub and Fuli too, but of course being cowards didn'tFacepalm . I mean, hyenas shouldn't be afraid of a cheetah and a lion cub. They are the true leaders of the savannah and not lions.

Yeahhhh sorry to say this but Janja is gonna get his in this story. Depending on how I plot it next Janja has either been killed by the Roar in this part, badly wounded OR Kion is going to finish the job finally. Regardless, Janja won't win :shrug: and no one deserved to lose anyone in this story.
so yeahhhhhhh, Kion and Fuli are gonna win out in the end because Janja had his chance to prove he was good ages ago and fawked that chance up.

Just remember, fictional characters. ;) (Wink) 

But yeah, just a tad black hearted, but I prefer Tiifuu than Tuli. They just have so much angst and drama in their relationship, they deserve to find happiness. Meow :3

Janja, you monster. But you failed to take one thing into account; Kion loves Fuli. Maybe not the way she loves him but in a way that, in its own way, is as strong and deep as the way he loves his wife.

I'm guessing that if Kion doesn't blame her for Tifu's death Fuli will forever blame herself.

Whoa...
Poor Kion, Tiifu, Fuli and Tai...
Janja had planned to kill Tiifu and Tai to hurt Kion and Fuli, but it looks like Fuli saved Tai long enough for Kion to arrive. I hope Kion doesn't blame Fuli for Tiifu's death.

I see all that. Did Kion actually kill the bad hyenas with his roar, or were they just blown away like usual?
