THE LEGEND OF THE WHITE LION AND LEOS BIGGEST MISTAKE By Gabriela Quiriti
The story of Leo’s biggest mistake is kind of related to the white lion legend. Kimba (Leo) built an animal school once. He went there and taught the other animals how to speak like a human but when he grew up he turned that school into a new one: the animals (including his daughter and his son, rukio and rune) learnt maths, languages, history and even more. Leo brought teachers from simbas kingdom to teach Swahili but one day looking for new teachers he found out that in simbas kingdom there was someone who knew the real history of how the first white lions were born. She was Nalas mother: Sarafina so Leo brought her to his kingdom for one day to teach about it.
“My little son and daughter, hope you treat Sarafina as she was from this kingdom when she comes.” said Leo
“We promise father!” answered the cubs.
The next day Sarafina woke up. Well in fact she was waken up by Kitty who told her she was late.
“What kind of teacher are you?!” shouted kitty.
“Go now! Go to school please! Leo didn’t bring you here for you to sleep!” continued the lioness
But sarafina only answered:
“I am not a teacher and I recommend you to keep your nose in your business and not in mine. I am wise. More than you. You are just too young to understand, now go out of my way I must teach the REAL history of the white lion, not the one you know.”
Kitty was shocked. She couldn’t realize what was happening.
“THE REAL HISTORY?!” roared Leo when he heard what sarafina said.
“Yes Leo, she said the story we know about white lions is totally wrong!”
“I am a white lion and she is not. She can’t know what I do about white lions because she isn’t one!”
“Wait, what are you going to do, Leo?”Asked kitty.
“I am going to stop Sarafina”
With that the white lion left
“My name is sarafina and I am going to be your teacher today” said sarafina but Rune responded:
“Oh, common lions stink!”
“You, go out of the classroom! NOW!”
“What did I do, stinking and dirty lioness? You can’t stop me, I am prince rune!”
“Well let’s see…GO AND TAKE SOME AIR OUTSAID!!” shouted the lioness
This time rune went out as sarafina watched him and said:
“Your sister would make better queen than you would do as king!”
“Please give me some more opportunity, teacher!” cried rune after being in detention for one hour.
“Well I mustn’t wait anymore…you can get in but don’t disturb anymore, alright?”
“ALRIGHT!” Said rune happily.
“Well now its time to start with the real history of the white lion”
But on that moment Leo jumped on sarafina and said:
“GO OUT OF MY KINGDOM!!RETURN TO YOUR LANDS, DON’T CHALLENGE ME OR DON’T LIE TO THE CUBS HERE!”LEO WAS REALLY ANGRY. But sarafina just answered:”I won’t return to the wild until you have learnt the real history of white lions!”
“What do you mean?”
“Leo, that history that roger ranger told you as a cub is false…I am sorry but I have the real history”
“Well…I want to hear it” said Leo
“Alright, lye down and hear carefully”
Sarafina started her story…
“Nobody knows how the FIRST white lion was born but when they were extinct, about 100 years ago or more, something amazing happened: One day I met the first white lion after the extinction. I came into simbas pride when I was a young cub but before that in the pride that my father ruled and that my husband rules now, I had 3 playmates. They were 3 white lions. One was the daughter of a lioness and the other two were two boys. I don’t remember how was the younger cub named but the oldest was called yavulani. Yavulani is the real saver of the white lions and hi is not your ancestor Leo…he is my husband and nalas father. That is why nala is not as dark as Simba or the others. The strangest thing is that the three cubs were (yavulani, the other male cub and the female cub) were borned from a common lioness”
When sarafina finished she added: “questions?”
Then Rune said: “I didn’t want to offend common lions or either lionesses, hehe…”
Leo was totally amazed but he could stand that Yavulani wasn’t his ancestor. A tear came out from Leo’s eye but he hid his sadness and went home with rune and rukio. The only thing he couldn’t stand was that he attacked sarafina because of nothing nothing. He was wrong, that one was Leo’s biggest mistake.
