Elsa, Nala and Zarya chased after the young lion prince through the jungle brush. Simba was so eager to find a way to cross the river to see what was on the other side. And like all the times he's done something like this, he was bond to get himself in trouble. Elsa was the first to came out from the jungle and back to the river. She saw Simba standing At the edge of the stream, looking for a way across. But there was nothing he could use to cross.
"Simba what are you doing?" Said Elsa.
"We can't cross the river."
Simba just looked to her with a stern look.
"Come on Elsa, it'll be fun." He said.
He then looked to his left and saw a fallen tree truck that fell over the river. It was long enough to reach the other side and it was wide enough for them to cross.
"Alright!" He said as he rushed over to tree trunk.
"Simba wait!" Said Elsa as she, Nala and Zarya followed him.
Simba came up to the fallen tree. He jump up and landed on the tree root. He climbed up and came onto the trees bark surface. He looked down to Elsa, Nala and Zarya.
"Come on, let's see what's on the other side." Said Simba.
Nala and Zarya came up and climbed up the tree root, but Elsa hesitated a bit. She knew what her mother told her about going over to the other side. She didn't want to disobey her mother. Nala looked back to her.
"Elsa come on." She said making the young jungle girl look to her.
Elsa looked to the tree trunk. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad to have a look at what was on the other side. I mean what's the harm in just taking a look. Words that would guide her to something familiar. Elsa came up and climbed up on the tree. She looked ahead to the other side. She felt a bit guilty about what she was about to do. But maybe it would be fine if they get back in time.
The four friends began to cross the tree truck to the other side of the river. Simba reached the other side he jumbled down to the ground below and turned to look to up to The girls. Nala came after and Zarya followed after her. The three then looked to Elsa, who came to the edge of the tree.
"Come on, Elsa." Said Zarya.
Elsa first looked back they way they came. She came this far, there was no turning back now. If his mother found out about this, she's would be so mad that she disobeyed her. Elsa narrowed her eyes. She looked back and then leaped off the tree. She landed on the ground on all fours, like a lion cub. The friends looked all around. It didn't seem any different then the other side was. It just seemed like the jungle land that they had live in all there lives.
"This place doesn't seem that bad." Said Simba as he looked back at his friends.
"Yeah." Said Nala noticing the same thing.
"I wonder what Bagheera was talking about. It looks safe."
Elsa was thinking differently than them. She didn't feel the same way, mostly cause they disobeyed their elders. She began feeling really guilty about the choice she made.
"I don't know." Said Elsa still a bit concerned and weary about this place.
"Relax Elsa." Said Simba looking back at her.
"We're not in any trouble. Come on, let's check this place out!"
The four friends went further into the jungle, getting further away from the boundary. The fact of danger and harm came to no fear to them. At least not Simba. But there was something else in the jungle, that was soon to be met.
Meanwhile, far from the river, Diata was wondering through the jungle, looking for her adopted daughter.
"Elsa!" She called out.
"Simba, Nala! Where could they have wandered off to?"
"Diata?" A voice said.
The tanned fur lioness looked up and saw Bagheera, laying on a branch above.
"Bagheera, have you seen Elsa?" She asked.
"Indeed I have." Said the black panther.
"I saw them last down by the river. They were attempting to cross over."
"What?" Asked Diata, her eyes widened. She couldn't believe for a second that Elsa would attempt to disobey her.
"They wouldn't. Do you know where they are now?"
Bagheera shock his head no.
"I'm afraid not." He said.
Diata began to feel concerned. She had already looked all over the area for them, they were nowhere to be seen. This was turning into the time she had lost her cub and if it happened to Elsa, she would never Forgive herself.
"Do not worry, Diata." Said Bagheera.
"They couldn't have gone far. Come I'll help you find them."
"Thank you." She said in relief.
The two continued on the path, looking for the tree friends, where ever they would have gone.
