Here's a little story for this pic. I never write stories, so I hope you like it XD


One afternoon, Malka came to the Pride Lands to visit Simba and Nala. He had come several times before, but this time their families agreed on letting him stay for a few days at Pride Rock. He was excited, not only because he was going to play with his friends, but that also means he'd get to spend more time with Nala, whom he had developed a crush on.

As soon as he got there, he picked a beautiful flower and went to find Nala. He found her, sitting outside of the cave; he was nervous as this was the first time he was going to be a bit more direct about his feeling for her. What if she doesn't like it? Or think I'm weird? He thought to himself. Before he could make a move, Simba appeared.

"Hey Nala, wanna go out and play?" said the young prince "I almost fell asleep hearing our moms. They were talking about us being betrothed, again".

"Betrothed?... What's that?" Malka said to himself, confused.

"Again? *giggles* don't worry, Simba, one day they'll give up, I mean, you and me getting married?, the idea is just silly, I don't care if It's a tradition going back generations like the dodo said"
"I know, it's so weird, we're best friends, like brother and sister".
"Yeah… Hey, let's see if Malka's already here".

Both cubs ran to see if their friend has arrived. Malka stood there, he couldn't believe what he just heard. Nala was meant to be with Simba and there's nothing he could do about it. "It's not fair" he said with tears in his eyes.

Now without any hope and not wanting to be heard or seen by anyone at that moment, he quietly left, heartbroken.


For those who don't know Malka, this is him [link]

Poor Malka, the good thing is that he ends up with Tama.

Awww I could totally envision this scene! It would end with him dropping the flower and the camera focused on the flower as he walked away sadly in the background! Beautiful story and art! :)
