A New Day
Miano had just woken up from a good night sleep. He got up and stretched out. He let out a little yawn trying not to wake his mate up. He smiled as he looked at her and saw that it would be soon before she would go into labor. Sela had picked Miano when she had wonder off from her pride. They both were rogue and they were happy. It has been tough for them, but they still find enjoyment out of life. He gave his mate a nuzzle as he was happy she was carrying his cub. Sela awoke from the nuzzle and said “Good Morning”. Miano replied good morning to you. "How do you feel?" "The pains are getting worse and it’s hard to move." "Well I will bring you some food." She replied “Thank you.” As Miano goes to hunt for some food, Sela tries to get up it takes her awhile because the pain is becoming so great it is hard to move.
Luckily the water hole was not too far she thought. As she got there, she took a few licks of water then pain got so worse she fell to the ground. She was in labor. She was in a state of panic. Het mate was nowhere to be seen. She let out a roar to see if she could get his attention. Miano about to jump his prey heard the roar and took off away from the prey to see what the problem was. Miano comes to see that she has fallen next to the water. He rushed to see what is wrong. “Are you ok?” I am in labor that is why I called you. Oh! “Do you need anything”? He said. "No, just wanted you here to see you our cub born into this world." "Thanks for the call would not miss this for the world." She felt the pain growing. She started to yell. He grabbed her paw to let her squeeze his hand to help ease the pain. He did not know what to do. The cub started slowly to appear. Miano said “the cub is almost out just a little more.” Luckily when she fell her head was close to the water. She screamed one last time and the cub was out. "Oh honey look at our cub." "Is it a boy or a girl?" Sela looked and said “it is a boy!” Miano was so exicted.
He laid next to her nuzzling her and looking at the little cub. "Well he is going to need a name." "Do you have any ideas?" What about “Mio” she said. "That is a great name it is perfect." Mio gave out a little cry because he was uncomfortable and cold. Sela put the cub between her arms and gave the cub a bath. The young cub gave out a little purr. Miano looked down at his new cub gave it a nuzzle and a lick. He was so proud of his new cub and Sela. “Are you hungry? Want me to go get you some food while you rest?” "Yes, darling I am just be safe I will be right here since I will not be able to move for a bit." Miano ran off to go get some food for his mate.
Sela look at her son and was proud to be a mother. She heard the new cub purring. Mio opened his eyes and she saw her mates brown eyes and she smiled thinking it was just like Miano. She saw he had a little brown spot below his mouth. Also looking at Mio’s face she saw brown lines from the tip of his nose to the end of the eye socket. As she was getting close to finishing the bath she saw a brown little toe on his left most toe on his left hind leg. She gave the cub one last lick and fell asleep with the cub in her arms. She put her head next to his so he could feel her mother’s face.
