Elsa of the jungle: The legend begins @mbcarver
Chapter 12

(Thank you guys for you patients, I hope you guys enjoy this chapter I made. I also want to say that about adding the Madagascar characters in this. Well, I kind of decided that I already have too many characters as it is, so I'm going to have to leave them out of this, sorry.)

Elsa nodded in response. Jack turned and gazed at the tanned fur lioness and then back at Elsa. He was completely astonished to know that this girls mother was a lioness.

Elsa turned to look at her mother, only to be met with an expression of shock and Dismayed. Though she was relieved that her adopted daughter was safe but was also disappointed that she disobeyed her. She had made it clear to her to never cross the river and yet her adopted daughter decided to go against her. She had already lost one cub once, she couldn't take the burden of losing a second.

Elsa smile then turned to a frown. She knew that Diata was mad at her for crossing the river.

"Elsa, I can't believe you disobeyed me." Said the lioness mother still feeling the shock and frightened as she was before.

"What have I told you about crossing the river."

Elsa narrowed her eyes feeling so ashamed of herself. She didn't mean to disobey her mother.

"But... We were just..." Elsa tried to explain. She gazed up at her lioness mother and was met with eyes of pain and loss. She couldn't find any words to say next, she knew that she had just hurt her mother by going against her wishes. There wasn't anything she could say to change the mistake she had made.

"I'm sorry, mama." She said as she narrowed her head again.

Diata sighed feeling a bit upset of being hard on her. She was only a cub, she didn't know any better. It wasn't as if she was any different when she was her age. It was only because she cared so much for Elsa that she couldn't take losing her.

Though this was not the time for this. The lioness mother turned to look at the boy-cub who sat injured against the tree. The boy looked back at her feeling intimidated by the presence of the jungle cats presence. Even knowing that she was this wild girls mother, it still didn't change the fact that she was a predator. A carnivore who kills anything for food. Though to his luck, Diata saw no fit to harm him.

After all, the law forbid her to hunt man.

"Why is there another man cub in the jungle?" She said to herself. She had already saw one a ways back, but there was elders with that one.

Elsa looked up to her mother before looking to Jack.

"Jack." Said Elsa.

Diata looked down to her adopted daughter.

"Jack?" She said.

"It's his name." Said Elsa.

Diata looked back to the boy. She remembered hearing that same name at the human camp she had came across. It was clear that he was far away from his pride and they were looking for him.

"His family is searching for him." Said Diata.

"We should take him to them."

"But he's hurt." Said Elsa referring to his leg.

Elsa came up to the boy. She turned back to her mother and pointed to his leg. Diata came up and looked to Jacks right leg.

"He can't move." Said Elsa.

Diata came up and stared down upon the boys injured knee. She turned and looked face to face with the white haired boy. With his leg in such bad condition like this, it would be hard for him to move alone.

"What happened to him?" Diata asked as she looked to her adopted daughter.

"I don't know." said Elsa only seeing him when he was injured but was without witness as to what happened.

Jack looked to Elsa. She saw the two taking in a language that could not be heard by his ears.

He was curious as to what they might be saying to each other. Diata turned and gazed out to the raining night. At this very time, they weren't going anywhere until the night ends and the clear day returns.

"He's a liability out here." said Diata.

"We'll return him to his family tomorrow. For now, it's time for us to get some sleep."

The lioness turned and laid down left to Jack. Elsa came around and laid down at her side. The wild girl curled up against her mother's soft tanned fur as she turned and looked down to her daughter. The lioness leaned down and began licking the girl, cleaning her hairless skin. Jack stared to the mother and daughter. He saw something so strange and yet familiar. He saw this lioness, an animal said to be a danger for any person to be around caring for this one girl as if... she was her own.

He never in life thought this was possible for a lion to show this kind of love and affection to a human child. Something that his own mother showed him and his sister. Meanwhile back at the campsite, inside one of the cabins Tooth and Anna were waiting for North and Jack to return. Anna was laying in her bed, the covers draped over her small body. She was turned to the left side of the bed, facing Tooth who was sitting in a chair beside Anna's bed reading a book to the five year old girl. The book was all about a boy and a black horse. It was one of her favorite story's to hear every night before bed

Anna listened to the words spoken by Tooth, all the while she was thinking about her brother, praying that he was okay. Tooth looked from the book and saw Anna, frowning, holding her doll close to her. She was missing her brother deeply. Tooth closed the book and set it down on the night stand at her right side.

"Anna." She said as she stroked the girl brown hair.

The little girl looked up to her aunt.

"I miss, Jack." She said.

"I know you do." Said Tooth, softly.

"Don't worry. Uncle North will bring him back safe."

Anna narrowed her small blue eyes, hoping that she was right. Just then, the door to the cabin opened. The two looked and saw North come inside from the raining night outside. He closed the door behind, giving a sigh afterwards. Tooth stood up off the chair, knowing that something was wrong. North turned to her.

"Jack?" She asked.

North shook his head no. Tooth frowned, becoming even more nervous than she was before. Jack was somewhere out in that dark jungle, alone. He could be hurt.

"It's too dark to keep looking for him." Said North.

"I'll have to continue in the mourning."

Anna was on the verge of tears. Her brother was now missing. Why did he run away like that? Was it something she did? Annas head narrowed downwards as she began sobbing. North walked up to the side of her bed and kneeled down to the girl.

"Hey now." He said as he wiped away her small tear drops with his big hands.

"Don't cry, Anna. I promise I'll find you brother tomorrow."

Anna turned and looked to her uncle, continuing to sob. North brought her close, hugging the girl tight.

"There, there sweetie." He said comforting his little niece.

"Everything will be alright."

Anna laid against her uncle, holding onto him tight as she continued through her feelings of sadness.
