A Little Roar

By Petitprincess

Drama

Dead or Alive?

"Little roar. Puh." I mumbled. My Uncle Scar had told me about my dad surprising me. I guess it has something to do with my roaring. He's probably teaching me more about pouncing or maybe even hunting; either way I'm still excited. I saw a lizard climb down from a branch. This is a chance to prove that my roar isn't little. I roared at it and it didn't do a thing. So, I roared at it again...nothing. Okay, now I'm really mad! This time I jumped at it and roared loudly. It ran away! I honestly didn't expect that! My roar even echoed. That's gotta count for something! All the sudden, I felt vibrations and saw a few pebbles shake. Then, I saw a huge herd of wildebeest coming down! I didn't know what to do. So right when they were near me, I started running. It was clear I wasn't off to a good start; I got caught in the stampede! As I was running, I saw a flimsy tree. It was the only thing that would probably-hopefully keep me alive. I climbed up and hanged on for my life! I hope Scar went to go get my father. After what seemed like forever hanging there, I saw Zazu flying towards me. I shouted, "Zazu! Help me!"

"Your father is on the way! Hold on!" He said back to me. I replied, "Hurry!"

Then, he left me. This time I had no choice but to listen to him. As he flew away, I heard the tree snapping. I whispered, "Please, no!"

My pleading didn't work, the tree snapped and I fell down. I looked at the herd of stampeding wildebeest. I doubted I was gonna survive, but I still kept running along with them. I didn't see or hear my father. Does he care about me? What kind of question is that? Of course he cares about me! As I was running, I got kicked by a wildebeest. I rolled across the ground and then a huge sharp pain went into my side. It hurt really badly. I saw a hoof over me, so I rolled out of the way. There was no chance of me surviving if I laid there, I got back to my paws and started running again. If there wasn't so much dust in the air, I could probably find somewhere to hide. I looked up and saw Zazu flying overhead again. I roared and he didn't hear me. The sounds of the hooves are too loud! I thought. Maybe if I ran out a little further, he would see me. But, my body started cramping up and the pain in my side got worse! I could already see myself getting buried.

Not wanting to think that way, I turned around and started running the opposite direction. Sure it was dangerous but if it meant surviving, then I'm all up for it. Plus, the stampede is bound to end sometime, right? As I was running, a wildebeest leaned a little towards me and it fell. I got slammed in on the side, which was the same side I got kicked into. My body rolled underneath all of the wildebeest. The pain went through my whole body, it hurt just to get up. I felt my eyes start closing. I also felt tears come down my cheek. I whispered, "No. I don't wanna die."

It didn't even matter; right after I said that my eyes closed. The last thing I saw was a hoof above me.
