Something worse than panic coursed through the feline's blood, her heart pounding the most uncomfortable staccato in her chest. It was more than fear, more than just the uncertainty and the unknown. Ramona and the cubs were missing and Casinira had fallen. Even thinking it caused the lump in her throat to deepen, her eyes to sting. The thought of just where the Queen was, where the cubs were - it made her sick. And what was worse, she had reported only days ago that the Crater had been attacked by a band of rogues. She couldn't have seen this coming and neither could Ramona. But the fact that the Queen could not be found was a growing concern for the black hooded feline. In the span of a few short hours, this fragile world had come crashing down around her and she felt off balance.

The Plateau wasn't safe and Indira had left as swiftly as she was able to - she had sent out calls for @Gottfried, @Neptune and @Hades immediately, fear for the children at the forefront. As she'd moved further away from her home, her heart hammered and her mind resolved. They needed to find Ramona and the cubs (her sweet Theo!) and they needed to drive the rogues from their home. The boulders seemed like the best place to stop - they could be seen from the Plateau and any who had made it out might need the comfort of a pride mate to congregate around.

It didn't matter that they were scattered, Indira considered many friends and some were even on their way to being family for the Winter girl. She would not let them fall apart. With the protection of the boulders surrounding her, Indira sent out a repeated call for her pride mates, a rolling roar that came from deep in her gut. She would need all the help she could get to find Ramona and the cubs. As she stood, waiting in the darkness, she wondered who else could be called on and remembered her first meeting with the Casinira Queen. She had mentioned Ambrosine to Manes - it had seemed a friendly connection. Perhaps the Ridge would need alerting. For now, she intended to gather any who wished to and go from there.

it all happened so damned fast.

they came all at once, the buncha cowards. an onslaught he certainly hadn't been expectin' - but maybe they should've. rsorvic was supposed to be at their doorstep, right? none of these lions smelled like the crater though - not that israel had much time to really discern what the fuck was happenin'. one minute he is in the den with @Tessa, curled up close - indulgin' in both the day and his mate, the subtle swell of her stomach a never-endin' delight. and then, the next, there is nothin' but blood and pain. it coats his muzzle, his paws; runnin' thick into the heavy coat he wore, stainin' the floor of the den he'd called home.
he'd fought off the one that had slipped into their den but at great length, hardly even noticin' the oozin' wounds with how quickly it all had happened.

even as the rogue wheezed out its last breath, israel could hear the sound of others and knew they had to get out. fortunately they'd managed to slip from casinira's borders with little fuss, callin' for @Tosca even as he went. once they were far enough away he was about to put tessa down, tuck her away somewhere safe and go back - when he hears indira's call. a heavy sigh rumbles from his throat, lookin' to tessa with somethin' close to relief. that meant they weren't the only ones that had made it out safely. "c'mon," he urges, gently as he can - not wantin' to manhandle her 'round, but not takin' the risk of lettin' her outta his sight, either. she was pregnant and he might be hurt, but he'd be goddamned if anyone was gonna lay a finger on her.

"indira," he chuffs, voice pitched low and worn. shoulders were still hunched forward, almost up to his ears - still on the defensive, still ready. "y'all alright?" he asks, ruby eyes shiftin' from the baroness to those she'd gathered. the small crowd that is absolutely missing a few, notable individuals - mainly, their queen. he stays close to tessa's side, almost glued to her - refusin' to let her outta his sight, let alone his radius. "what the fuck is goin' on?" he asks through panted breaths, lookin' to anyone who might have an answer.

In all honesty he was out for supplies again. But in his defense he was just returning towards the Plateau. But something seemed off. He stopped in his tracks not too far. The scent was off. And then the urgent call from Indira caused his heart to pound in his chest. Ears pinned against his skull and he dropped everything he was carrying. His brows furrowed and a frown twisted the man's face. A man that was always shy, nervous and kind. These new feelings that had began to stir his stomach were causing him to feel a lot of new things. Tail swayed behind him and strong socked legs took him towards the call. It didn't summon only him, it summoned the kids. It summoned everyone. Where was Ramona though? Without any questions the man hurried towards the black hooded lioness. After he came close to the Boulder, he could see he wasn't the first there. Israel, Tessa and Tosca. He had seen them countless times at meetings and in the pride land. Never really talking much, except with Tessa, but they were his pride mates and he was going to do what he could to protect them. No more cowardness. When he reached them, Indira's face caused his frown to deepen. He hated seeing this expression. After he came to a stop at the Boulder he aimed to brush his nose against Indira's cheek, trying to calm her down and press a gentle kiss to her cheek. "What's happening?" Came his voice, hushed and nervous as always, but there was something else in his tone. Something foreign. Something primal. Ears twisted and he turned his head to take a look at the cubs (Neptune and Hades), before turning towards Israel and the others. "Are you alright? Tessa?" He stated towards Israel, nervous and worried. He turned his head towards Indira while waiting for both to answer, His body closer to Indira as if that would give her the support she needed.

Things had happened so quickly, too quickly rather. One minute they were sleeping soundly in their den, the next a rogue was entering their home and Israel was going feral! Tessa could barely comprehend what was happening before the rogue became a lump of fur at their doorstep thanks to her husband. She didn't have time to dote on Israel though and fret on his fresh wounds, they had to hurry up and get out because there was more. How many there were Tessa wasn't sure she just knew there was enough to make things overwhelming very fast. Immediately her mind went to Ramona and the cubs, where were they? Her heart hammered in her chest as she loped after Israel, not intent on stopping anytime soon until they heard the familiar call of Indira beckoning them. Relief flooded Tessa when she saw the hooded lioness, thankful that she was not harmed. Gottfried's presence was also a relief as she offered him a small, sad smile. Now that they had time to pause for a moment she immediately glued herself to Israel's side, licking at his wounds lightly (just to clean them for now!) before bringing her attention back to Indira and Gottfried. "Where are the others? Did you see Ramona.. and the babies?" She asked, her heart immediately hammered faster in her chest. Her own stomach was swelled ever so slightly with the promise of life and she, just like the others, had grown quite fond of the royal cubs. The fact that they were obviously absent along with their mother and father was extremely worrisome to Tessa. She tried to keep a cool face but the pregnancy hormones had her crying without her even noticing until the tears were streaming down her face, "I.. I'm sorry. I'm just worried about them." She said, wiping her tears quickly with a front paw before settling next to Israel.

Amara had tried. She had tried and failed. She needed help. Hearing a familiar voice the former lady moved as quickly as her tattered body would allow and came to the gathering. So few. Her golden eyes found Indria. A healer but also the only one here that really had done much in Amara's eyes. Blood dripped from her she addressed them all in a hurry. " We were attacked by a rogue group. Again." Everything about her was tense and on edge. "This time. They took her and the cubs." While the star kissed lioness wasn't one for big emotions, her strained voice would let them know how she felt even if nothing else could, right? "I tried to get her back. There are more of them this time. We need help. I will go to the Ridge to seek warriors. If you wish to fight, come. If not, we had an alliance with the Jungle. The Queen there is a healer and can patch everyone else up and they should be alerted as well." She wasn't really sure if any would follow her, she didn't really care. Her focus was simple. Save Mona and her cubs. She didn't care about hurt feelings or politics. She cared about saving them. She would wait to see who would be joining her or not.


Amara is M rated. I often write her while drinking so if posts dont make sense, dm me in discord and I'll fix it when not drinking. She is just better that way.

Neptune hadn't been far, but mercifully away from the Plateau and thus was blissfully unaware of the events that had just transpired. What snags her attention from the little pile of river-smoothed rocks she had been collecting since that morning was the call of Indira.

She reacts to the call slowly, because little legs couldn't carry her very fast. She's puffing as she trundles up the gathering of adults, the two she knew so far only being Indira and Gottfried. But the rest smell like what she associates as Casinira, and so Neptune shyly winds her way between Indi and Gott. Usually she'd be more confident... but it felt like there was something wrong. Aside from her mewl of greeting, she lapses into silence - listening as best she could to try figure out what was going on.

In the darkness, her heart hammered and she tried her hardest not to fall apart. Indira herself was not overly emotional and did not spend a lot of time worrying and thinking 'what if'. But this little world that she had created for herself, this home that she managed to fit herself into, was in ruins around her. Her lips pursed and her body prickled with anxiety, but moonstone eyes were sharp on anything that moved and within moments she spied the former Duke and Duchess. Relief washed through her and she stepped forward, silver eyes raking their bodies to check for life threatening injuries. @Israel was bleeding but it didn't seem as though he was bleeding out, @Tessa was unharmed and she felt light headed with the relief of it. I'm fine, I'm okay. The black hooded woman reassured the male, before @Gottfried's arrival made her heart lurch.

The closeness of his body was a reassurance, the kiss to her cheek welcome. But she wasn't about to fall apart, not when her pridemates were here. Her dark tipped tail fluttered anxiously around her ankles as she waited, silver eyes searching the horizon. And when @Amara emerged, they widened in alarm. The midnight lioness was drenched in blood, obviously injured and the sight was alarming. But she had information - information that made her heart sink none the less. Ramona and the cubs were gone, taken. Is there any news on Venom? She asked once the former Lady was through. Her plan made sense and Indira was on board, but she wanted to know where Ramona's husband was, if anyone knew.

I will go with Amara to Infernia and help to find Ramona and the cubs. Neptune and Hades are too vulnerable to be anywhere near this mess. Tessa, I hate to ask, but is there any way you could take them to the safety of Askath - even just to shelter them for now? Indira's gaze fell on the young female, a note of plea in her tone. She didn't want to ask the woman to sit out, but perhaps @Israel would want his wife in a safer location as well. It wouldn't be long before this little part split and Indira allowed her gaze to flit around them all, settling on Gottfried for several beats.

tessa's hoverin' presnce at his side helps, even when she twists and trembles. she's upset, he knows, and he don't blame her none. when she reaches forward and licks at his wounds, though, he jerks away with a quiet hiss at the sudden, sharp pain - before rememberin' himself. he rumbles a quiet sound, an apology, leanin' over to lave a kiss 'gainst her cheek. i'm sorry, he tries to say - even as his ears twitch, listenin' to everyone slowly puttin' the pieces together. @Gottfried and the cubs at his paws seem alright - and @Indira, too, confirms she's just fine. that's good, that's good. it'd be better if there were more of 'em here, but, ah.

the former lady appears, bloodied and battered - in a far worse state than israel. a low noise rumbles from his throat as she speaks, bluntly informin' them of what they'd all been fearin'. 'mona was gone, captured. her and the little ones. iz feels sick to his stomach with the knowledge, knowin' that it easily could've been tessa who was taken - or indira, or tosca. any of 'em could be in the queen's shoes now, and it makes him squrim. at the mention of venom, israel shakes his great head. "i didn't see anyone on the way out." venom or jak, or any of the others.

ruby eyes cut to indira as she speaks, askin' tessa to take the kids to askath for the time bein'. and israel.... he's torn. he wants to help, wants to help get ramona and her babies back. she's his friend and she needs him - but @Tessa needs him, too. her and their unborn cubs. his muzzle twists as he turns to tessa, brows furrowin' as he looks to her. "i can come with ya," he murmurs, voice low - intent only for her, though with how close everyone is israel doubts he'll go unheard. that's fine, though - all his attention is on tessa. he ain't gonna leave her.

He felt torn seeing Indira this way. If it was them two, he would shower her with everything he could, so she could feel calm, safe and happy. But this wasn't the case this time. They were chased out of their home. They were alone. He felt how his past was chasing him and it was happening all over again. For a second there his expression changed to fear, his ears glued further back to his head, but Indira's movement caused him to snap out of it. Instinctively his head lowered to place a kiss over Tunie's head and a nudge at Hades.

Moments later another lioness appeared. Blood dripping from her body. His eyes following her and not moving from her form. He didn't know her, but it seemed the others did, so he relaxed, and had no idea he had been tensing up. When she uttered the words he did not want to think were true he couldn't help, but feel how that fear was crawling to get out. For a brief second he felt the need to run and to hide. To run until he couldn't keep going anymore. To be the coward he believed himself to be-- But when his eyes set on Indira all those thoughts went away. He was going to be the brave man, she taught him to be. Amara spoke of another Pride and departed. He didn't even have time to react. But then Indira spoke of Venom and honestly he had no idea where he was. If he had stayed home, he would've made sure they were safe.. Everyone were safe.. But he wasn't. Maybe this was his fault. The thought caused him to feel sick.

The suggestion that was uttered towards Tessa, was a good one. He would've asked the same. His head would rise up and look at Tessa with apologetic features. His eyes would move over to Israel. He could feel him wanting to stay by her side. And he wouldn't hold it against him. "Me and Indira will go." He said as his eyes set on Israel with warmth and understanding. His eyes would then move over to the cubs and then to Indira. He would wait her departure and would follow her without a question.. To the end of the world if needed be.
