Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – One Hundred and Ninety

They walked together with Ayuba trying to replicate Mother’s stride.

When they reached the place of recognition, she tensed her muscles, ready to fight if He deemed her cub unworthy. 

Ayuba looked up with eyes brightly shining.

“It will be well unina. I am strong.”

He stood four square in the clearing and his voice was melodious as he called The Father. 

The huge cat bestrode the earth like a god.

“Who calls?”

Ayuba did not falter, facing his fate with all four paws firmly in the earth.

The great cat nodded.

They walked together with Ayuba matching Mother’s stride.
