Hi all! This is kind of a different story than the usual ones on here I think. It's about what would happen in my version of the Lion King if my friend and me got sucked into the movie. I hope you liked it! Reviews are appreciated. Alicia/Jenna
"Oh my god! Are those meerkats?" Jenna exclaimed, pointing out of the window of the jeep she was riding in with Alicia. The two girls had decided to spend their vacation in Africa. They were enjoying being away from civilization and getting to see all kinds of different animals.
"They do look like meerkats!" Alicia confirmed, stopping the jeep. "Come on, let's go look at them!"
Jenna and Alicia jumped out of the jeep and went to look at all the meerkats scampering around. Jenna grabbed her camera and started taking a bunch of pictures. Once she had taken about twenty pictures, she stuffed the camera back into her bag and said, "Aw, they're so cute! Don't you just want to take one home with you?"
Suddenly, Jenna's eyebrows raised and she crept towards the meerkats.
"No, no, no, you can't take one home with you!" Alicia said, pulling Jenna back. "They wouldn't survive."
"Oh, I suppose you're right," Jenna said, fanning herself with her hand. "They like it where it's so hot out all the frigging time. Am I sweating? I'm so hot!"
Alicia sighed. Jenna had been complaining about the heat for the last few hours. She suggested, "Why don't you get a drink or something? Maybe that will cool you down."
"Yeah, good idea!" Jenna said, grabbing a water bottle from the jeep and pouring it all over her head.
"Jenna! What are you doing?" Alicia asked.
"Cooling down, why?" Jenna asked as she let the water drip down her body.
"You're wasting the water, we don't have that many water bottles," Alicia said.
Jenna looked guilty and replied, "Sorry! Hey, these meerkats remind me of Timon from the Lion King! You know that tunnel song they sing? I love that song. Oh, and of course I love Hakuna Matata!"
"I love that song too!" Alicia chimed in. "Hey, why don't we sing it?"
"Good idea!" Jenna said as the meerkats suddenly dove underground. Pointing to the jeep, she said, "Let's sing it in there though. At least the jeep has air conditioning."
Alicia laughed and the two girls jumped back into the jeep and started traveling along as they started singing, "Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase. Hakuna Matata! Ain't no passing craze..."
"Hey look! Baboons!" Jenna said, pointing out of the window. "Let's go take pictures!"
Alicia stopped the jeep and the two girls slipped down onto the ground. They ran through the sand and went to look at the baboons. Jenna started humming Hakuna Matata as she started taking pictures. One of the baboons was looking at her very intently.
"Hey Jenna, look!" Alicia said, tapping her shoulder. "That baboon is looking at you!"
"Yeah, he is," Jenna said with a frown. "He reminds me of Rafiki from the Lion King. I never really liked Rafiki though. I think he was my least favorite in the movie."
At Jenna's words, the baboons all stiffened and looked at Jenna. Not noticing that, Jenna continued on, "Don't you think he was kinda weird? I mean, that was annoying as hell when he kept going 'Look beyond what you see' in The Lion King 1 1/2, you know? I think-"
Alicia cut Jenna off and pointed to the baboons, whispering, "They're looking at you weird!"
Jenna followed her gaze and said, "God, you're right! Wonder what they want with me? They're just stupid monkeys..."
Suddenly, one of the baboons grabbed a stick with a rattle on the end of it and started shaking it. Before either of the girls could say anything, a wind started blowing around them. It went faster and faster until Jenna and Alicia thought they were caught in a tornado. Finally, the wind stopped as abruptly as it had started, leaving both girls on the ground.
Jenna rubbed her head with annoyance and said, "What the hell was that? Alicia, are you okay?" There was no answer. Jenna looked around frantically, "Alicia?"
Jenna looked down to see a meerkat next to her. Normally, she would be thrilled to see one nearby, but not in this circumstance. Where the hell was Alicia?
As Jenna was thinking all this, a voice to her right said, "Look beyond what you see."
Jenna looked up to see a baboon whispering in her ear. Her eyes widened and she gasped, "Oh my god, you aren't really Rafiki, are you? And what the hell do you mean by 'beyond what I see'?"
Rafiki nodded to the meerkat next to Jenna. Jenna gulped as realization struck her. Biting her lip, she asked tentatively, "Alicia? Is that you?"
The meerkat aka Alicia looked up at Jenna and said, "Um...I guess. But...look at us!"
"Why are you a meerkat?" Jenna asked before looking down at herself and seeing a dark brown paw with claws on it. "Oh my god, I'm a lion! What the hell?" Jenna turned to Rafiki and said, "Turn us back right this instant!"
Rafiki frowned at Jenna and said, "You are angering the spirits."
"Yeah, yeah, blah, blah, blah," Jenna said angrily. "I don't care about spirits! I want to be a human again!"
Before Jenna could say anything more, Rafiki started shaking his rattle again.
"Hey!" Alicia asked. "What are you doing?"
Before Rafiki had a chance to reply, the sand started swirling around.
"Sandstorm?" Jenna asked as the sand rose up into the air, blocking her view of Alicia. Before they could say goodbye, the sandstorm started blowing them away in opposite directions. There was a loud thunk and then all went black for both girls.
