The Lion King 4: Dawn of A New Era Chapter 3 Part 2

Petition to give Forgotten Disney More Love:

That was a lot easier explanation than trying to go into how squirmy newborn cubs could be.

Not to mention he'd probably be anxious to be taken away from his mother and suddenly lifted into the air.

Kiara was just barely out of the toddler age herself, so it was best to keep it simple for her.

"Oh, I remember your presentation!" Ma said proudly, pinching Kiara's cheek again. "You were the cutest little thing!"

Kiara gave her a slight nuzzle. "Thanks aunt Mzazi."

She pulled back and embraced TImon. "But no one was a cuter baby than my Timmy!"

"Ma!" Timon groaned in embarrassment.

"Oh, you were the sweetest little baby!" She cooed. "Kind of fussy, but still so precious!"

She tightened her hug, squishing Timon. For an elder meerkat, she still had a vice like grip.

"Ma ..." Timon coughed out. "... Too .... Tight .."

Not hearing him (or pretending she didn't), Ma kept hugging and nuzzled Timon closer.

Timon looked over bashfully at his friends. They all gave him small smiles, not trying to hide the fact that they found Ma's coddling absolutely adorable.

"All right Ma ... " Timon said, managing to push her back. "I think we're good for now."

"Oh I'm sorry Timmy." She sniffled. "It just brought back such good memories!"

Timon softened and gave her a small pat on the back, letting out a small sigh of defeat. "It's all right Ma ..."

Mzazi clung to Timon again, and this time he returned the hug.

A week later Kion's eyes had opened and he was able to take small, unsteady steps. He made his way over to his big sister who was still fast asleep.

Kion climbed up her leg and started tugging on her ear.

"Huh?" Kiara groggily groaned out, her sight coming into focus. "... Kion?"

Hearing his name, the young cub pulled back and smiled widely at Kiara. She let out a small giggle and nuzzled him. "Good morning!"

Kion let out a baby noise and bit Kiara's ear again.

"Kion, stop!" Kiara laughed. She gently pushed him off with his paw. Kion let out a small series of giggles, and snuggled into Kiara's front legs, resting his head on her chest.

"Good morning you two." Nala said, going over to them. She leaned down to their level and gave them both a loving nuzzle. She looked Kion in the eyes. "It's a big day for you sweetheart."

Kiara blinked. "What do you mean, mommy?"

"Kion's presentation is today." Nala said, grabbing Kion from her.

"Oh! Cool!" Kiara said, perking up.

Nala laid beside her and started grooming Kion. "Let's make sure you look good for your presentation sweetie. The whole Pride is going to see you today!"

Kion let out a small laugh and relaxed into his mother's grooming. Kiara got up and was about to run off to play, when Nala pulled her back. "And where do you think you're going?"

"I wanna play!" Kiara protested.

"Not until you get your bath." Nala said, pulling her closer.

"Mommy!" Kiara laughed as Nala groomed her fur.

"You want to look nice for the ceremony don't you?" Nala asked.

Kiara nodded and rested her head on Nala's paws. She switched between grooming both her cubs, until Simba came over. "Hey, can you help me out a bit here?"

"Sure." Simba chuckled. He grabbed Kiara from her, and started grooming her.

"Daddy!" Kiara giggled, relaxing in his paws.

Rafiki entered the den, a big smile on his face. He went over to the royal lion family, He embraced Simba and Nala, then gave Kiara a slight pat on the head, before looking at Kion,

"It is time, Kion." Rafiki said, a laugh in his voice.

"Hey! Don't start without us, monkey boy!" Timon's voice boomed through the cave. He entered, followed closely by his Ma, Pumbaa, and a female meerkat with a patch of light blonde hair.

The blonde meerkat stood in front of Simba and Nala and bowed. "Hello. I am Tatiana.

I've recently taken my father's place in The Circle of Life, and am the leader of your friend Timon's meerkat colony in the oasis."

Simba smiled, and bowed to her. "It's nice to meet you."

"I hope it's fine I came." She said. "I wanted to make sure we had a stable diplomatic relationship."

"Hakuna Matata." Simba said, a small smile forming on his face. "I'm glad you want to have ties with the pride."

She smiled warmly. "I strive to rule differently than my father.

He was stubborn to even move from our colony grounds to the oasis, let alone make a pact with a pack of lions, just because an ex colony member, his warthog friend, his mom,

and great Uncle could vouch for them. I however am willing to listen to them."

Tatiania took another step forward and put her paw out to Simba. "I hope things will be well between our kingdoms."

Simba put the tip of his paw out and "shook" hers the best he could. "I'm sure things will be."

"Aww! Look at you!" Ma cooed, patting Kion's head. "You even have a little mane tuft now!"

She put her paw over her heart as she gushed over the baby lion.

"Yeah, he's pretty adorable." Timon said. "Kinda makes me wanna have a kid of my own?"

Ma's eyes lit up. "You really mean it Timmy!?"

"Ma ..."

She pulled him into a tight hug. "Oh! I've always wanted to be a grandmother Timmy!"

"Ma ..." Timon coughed out again. "... I ... don't even .... Have a mate ... yet ..."

"Oh, I know Timmy! But just the thought of having grandkids makes me so happy!" She sniffled.

"I know it does, Ma." Timon said, hugging her back. "I know it does ...."

"Are we ready now?" Rafiki asked.

Nala nodded and gave Kion some last second grooming.

Rafiki picked up his stick and shook the gourds at the end of it. Kion let out a small happy squeak and pawed at them. Catching one of them between his paws, he started chewing on the hard shell.

Rafiki chuckled and gently pushed Kion off the gourd. He broke it open and smeared the juice on Kion's forehead.

Not liking the feeling of it, Kion tried to paw it off his head. Rafiki grabbed a handful of dirt and poured it over Kion.

Kion went into a small sneezing fit. Nala gently licked his cheek until the sneezing subsided. Rafiki gently grabbed Kion and headed out to the tip of Pride Rock.

The animals had heard the news about the birth of Simba and Nala's second born cub, and had rushed over as soon as they could. Right now they were silent, waiting for the presentation to begin.

Simba, Nala, Kiara, Timon, Pumbaa, Ma, Sarabi, and Sarafina all followed Rafiki as he approached the edge.

Slowly he lifted Kion into the air and the animals erupted in cheers. Kion looked around curiously, a big smile forming on his face.

Paws, feet, and hooves all clamped together in celebration of the future Lion Guard. It had been a generation since they'd last had one .... And it hadn't ended on the best terms ....

But they had hope that Kion would break that infamousy now surrounding the duty of the second born royal cub, and be a kind, loyal, and brave Lion Guard.
