Chapter Three: ToughTamu enjoyed a few more weeks of sleeping, eating, and exploring before he began any real lessons.Chapter Three: Tough by Zanedia
At this point, he began venturing further outside the his den with Lyra or Nami and became acquainted with some of the lionesses better. He had yet to meet Lyra`s younger brother, Eto, who would likely play a large role in teaching the child about his kingly duties once he grew older. Eto, who was next in line for the throne until the cub was of age, had traveled down-mountain with the lionesses to serve as a protector and an upholder of law. Tamu was eager to meet his uncle, but understod he had to wait.
While Tamu enjoyed quasi lessons, he was never able to pay attention for long. It`s only natural for young ones to be filled with energy and always be ready to play. Unfortunately, Tamu was still the only child and older lionesses sometimes got annoyed by Tamu`s rough housing, so he had few playmates.
Tamu rolled on the ground and sighed in boredom. Suddenly he felt a hand f
Forever Loyal: PrologueMy generation came to be during a series of hash winters. My pride lost many cubs in just a few seasons due to the problems that weather brings about. Lions were never meant to live in the mountains, so live a hard live.Forever Loyal: Prologue by Zanedia
While our network of caverns provides us with warmth and shelter, the conditions outside are harsh and hunting is treacherous. If the sharp, cold ice doesn`t shred your paw pads and give you frostbite, an avalanche may crush you. Fast, freezing winds will chill you to the bone and leave you shivering for weeks. Prey moves on during hard times and we are left with less to eat. That`s why its so important to be strong. Never appear weak, even if you are. Lions were never meant to live in the mountains, but we live a good life.
Our network of caverns provides us with space to be merry and socialize with our pride members. Glowing mosses look like stars when it is much to cold to gaze at the real ones. Water runs through the caves, meaning the young, sick, old, and n
Forever Loyal: Chapter Two: Presentation Day"Mom... Moooommmmmmaaaah. Could you please- Mom! Are you done? I- Can you- Stop!" Tamu pleaded. Excitement made the youngster restless. "I`m clean now, my hair is in order... I`m ready!"Forever Loyal: Chapter Two: Presentation Day by Zanedia
"I just wanted you to look nice, my dear."
"But dad says nice is`nt important! We have to be tough up here!"
"Being 'tough' doesn`t mean you can`t be kind, Tamu. Remember that."
"Okay, okay, it`s not lesson time! It`s presentation time! Can we go now? Please?"
"I`m glad you are so excited, son. Some get nervous. I`m proud of you."
The two started to walk out of the den and down towards the ceremony hall. Surely the residents of Satus was gathered there by now.
"Nervous? Why?" Tamu questioned as they walked.
"Well, it`s intimidating being in front of the whole town... Well, the whole town won`t be here today.."
"No? Why not? Do they not like me?" Tamu asked looking crestfallen.
"Of course they will like you, Tamu! But don`t you remember? We spoke of it last night. The winter ha
Forever Loyal: Chapter One: Beginings"Momma... I`m cold" the child squeaked.Forever Loyal: Chapter One: Beginings by Zanedia
"I know, my darling... this winter has been rougher than most. The winds are angry."
"Angry? Why would the winds be angry?" Tamu inquired.
"Because little kids aren`t letting their mothers sleep!" Lyra proclaimed as she playfully nuzzled her face into his small body.
He squeaked again, with joy this time, and scrambled away from her. He tumbled over himself, still a little clumsy on his feet, and gave up with a big yawn.
"Alright," his mother chuckled as she gently picked him up, "come back to me, my darling."
She nestled the child between her arms, trying to surround him with warmth. Concern brimmed in her loving, yellow eyes. She couldn`t bear the idea of losing her only son. It was just too painful. Don`t fret. He has made it this long. The worst is over. Right?
Tamu began to squirm.
"Settle yourself. You will have a big day tomorrow"
"Big day?" he yawned, trying to hide just how tired he really was.
"Yes, your pre

to icarusin the next life you were a phoenixto icarus by successwithhonor
a fiery resurrection
songbird of ash & second chances
when you flew south for the winter,
you made it every time
see for you, the universe was an olympic mountain
jutting out of the ocean, a temple you would never set foot in
an elaborate maze you'd been lost in for too long;
the only love you'd ever known was from the coalfire
of your father's hands in the dark, they were the most angelic
monsters, they were beacons
his mind was the gears of a clock that never stopped spinning
but the light,
the light was a promise to be seen
the fire, a dancing enchanter that never leaves
the future was an echo on the labyrinth walls:
prince, dream of dove and swift and nebulae,
dream like the lone at night for the warmth of day
you were a golden child, waiting to be found in the darkness
the earth is too flat;
you said you'd go up,
thought you'd be a little closer to the gods
your downed shoulders caught wind of the whisper in the air
—the ground is no place
|I desperately would like to do something to raise money for the animal shelter where I volunteer.|
The only thing I can think of is adoptables.. I don`t really think my art is work money.. not yet, at least
If all proceeds went straight yo the Animal Welfare Society of Jefferson County, would anyone be willing to pay a dollar or two for a design?
The AWS is a non-profit no-kill animal shelter. We are currently trying to renovate. You can read about it here: awsjc.org/renovate.html Feel free to check out the rest of the website
I just can`t figure out how to make sure you actually donated... if you have any ideas on how to confirm that the donation was made as or ideas on what I could do to raise more money, please let me know
I really want to see all 73 (not all of them are online. Many are too young to be adopted) of our cats to have a large room to roam free instead of being in cages for a majority of their day.... We only have enough room to let a handful of kittens roam....
I donate my time, but, time can only do so much. I care about those animals very much, as well as the other volunteers. All we want is for them to be as happy as possible with us until they find their forever home. You can help us achieve the dream~
If you would like to donate, you can send money to the address found here: awsjc.org/contact.html
You can also donate online~ www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webs…
Aside from renovations, one of our dogs needs surgery. Read her story and donate here: awsjc.org/special.html
Hers is another story of a pit that no ones wants, simply because she is a pit
I cannot tell you how many people have walked in and said "Oh.... I don`t want a pit bull." It is a shame.
We cannot thank you enough for you generosity. Please, every dollar counts.
