for days Imara was in labor she knew the first cubs were suposed to be hard but this seemed crazy her mate Bahari not aloud near she cried wishing he was there three days of labor and a dark male was born he was strong and helthy and loud it took three more days before the other two were born together a dark redish female and a pale and redish small male . Imara needed rest so for days she hardly moved she knew the family needed to see the cubs and her sisters were probably raveing unhappily but she was worried about them and wanted to make sure they stayed strong. Bahari was so happy when he finaly saw his cubs he wanted to name them right then and there so she agreed she looked at the one female then the two males she licks the female cubs head purring "Zuri the Beautiful" Bahari grins as the dark male starts mewing loudly "set of lungs that one im hot good with names how about Maxx?' Imara nodded then they frowned the pale boy was cold to the touch and small he hardly made the smallist squeak and bearly moved forward to nurse from Imara ,scared she picks him up and starts licking him furiously keeping him close to her she had been doing this with the cub for days now when he got to silent . Bahari in a sad voice begins beging her to stop that he wont make it only to get a dangerous snarl from his mate and a demand to leave . a few weeks pass and Imara lets Bahari see the cubs as she brings them out one by one first Maxx Then Zuri and as she goes back Bahari Frowned and stars into the cave a rustleing and out comes Imara carefully carrying the pale Cub who is still alive and alot more so then when Bahari last saw him "meet Jaxx" Imara says " your second son Bahari...he is going to make it...he might be smaller then the others allways but he will be fine" Imara had stayed up with him feeding him and licking him attentively for weeks and he pulled through as they are relaxing thinking about the day to show the cubs to the rest of the pride Thrush pops out of the ground telling them the pride wont wait much longer and it took him days to find them Jaxx stares fasinated by the creature "another week" Imara says and Thrush nods preperations will be made for the royal cubs to be recived in one weeks time Maxx the first born ,Zuri the beautiful and Jaxx the curious .
