Long ago in a forest named Charisma there lived animals of every kind. Charisma is a habitat covered by dense forest to its left and right while to the north and south there are two hills. In the center there is a big hole that collects fresh water for all the animals. Enriched with rich habitat Charisma is ruled by a jackal named Elon.
Elon lived with lion Leo and eagle Lasher. Years back they all travelled to Charisma and over time Elon along with others shaped it to the habitat it is today. Elon formed an alliance with Wolves of Werno and the best of them would protect all members of habitat under the command of Elon in return he offered them a portion of Longevity that would prevent the sudden death of Cursed Wolves.
Long ago five animalsUnder his cherbivorous and with the help of elephants he made a clear patch in the center of forest and every night all animals would gather and sing songs and rejoice with happiness. Covered on two sides densely with forest and with a vast water basin that remained with fresh water anytime the year Charisma was the most envied habitat of all the five habitats.
Elon himself named the forest as Charisma at his arrival and as days passed by many animals joined them and the forest was becoming rich in habitats. Everyone adored Elon and Leo. They all called Elon the King of Charisma.
One day Elon’s friend, a unicorn named Fren, visited him. That afternoon after both of them had lunch both of them sat beside the water basin and Fren smilingly said “Elon, I am proud of you but don’t get me the wrong way. In my opinion there is a huge difference between a minister and a king. If either of them think otherwise they are either underestimating or overestimating themselves. A minister is always a minister irrespective of what his people call him.”
Elon never thought Fren was about to talk about him being called the king and so he thought for a moment and said “King? Let them title me with whatever they want. I never asked them nor would ever consider myself as one.” Fren smiled again and replied "Think about what I said to my friend. A rich habitat is always a target.”
That evening Leo went out of Charisma as he did everyday and visited the Ferocious Cave to meet the other Lions. They had a common target and it was overthrowing Elon and take command of Charisma. As soon as Leo entered Lion Jarin who managed the pride walked toward Leo. He asked “So, when do we strike?” Leo wanting to let everyone know about the plan shouted “Brothers! the moment for our strike has arrived. Tomorrow we all shall attack Charisma after the sunset and achieve our dream.” All the lions roared at once and they all shouted “King’s are the ultimate masters!”
The next morning after Leo left to reach back Charisma, Jarin’s friend named Uproar asked “Jarin, do you trust Leo?” Jarin knew many in the pride had the same doubt but he was one of the few who knew who Leo was exactly. He replied “Leo, isn’t a lion who was sent on exile like us after he committed sins. He is more than everyone of us and he is a royal member. To be frank, I don’t trust him completely but I believe he would never betray his race for his friends.” Uproar did not speak another word. For Lions there was nothing more convincing than serving their race beyond anything.
Elon saw Leo coming into Charisma and went to him and asked “Leo, where have you been? Is everything alright?” Leo thought for a moment and said “Yes. Everything would be from this day.” That evening when everyone in Charisma was sleeping Leo along with twenty five Lions started running towards Charisma habitat center from Frecious Cave. They planned to overtake by just killing Elon as they held him to be the key to Charisma.
Everyone followed Leo as he led the pride. They all ran fast and Leo was taking steep turns and many Lions could not keep up the pace. Every time they missed taking a turning correctly they all paced more fast and at one point Leo took a steep turning and jumped above a huge pit. Betrayed by trust that they would conquer Charisma that very night most Lions unprepared did not jump after the steep turning and fell in the pit that was very deep. The few others who did not fall were hit by elephant trunks making them fall into the pit. After everyone fell down, lighting bees came all across and Elon walked near to the pit.
He said “Don’t you fools think I know a rich habitat always has enemies? That is why I asked my friend Leo to set out the word to fight against me and that is how you all got together. I still don’t understand how you believe he would betray me?”
Saying this he turned to Lasher the Eagle and said “You know what to do.”
Lasher made elephants pull a huge stone and that crushed most of the Lions. That night Leo saw Elon’s back raised. He hasn’t seen that anytime before. Next morning Leo and Elon sat near the water basin and Leo said “Elon killing these lions would provoke the great lioness. She would not leave you nor this habitat.”
Elon smiled and replied “I am deeply hurt because you take me for a fool. I have already sent a message to Queen Lenore and she gave me full permission and promised me full amnesty as the pride was sent to exiled long ago.”
Uproared suspected danger and so he ran last in the pride. When he saw the lions fall he ran back. By the next morning he reached Carvan Rock which was the second biggest pride headed by Lion Vigor. Uproar reached Vigor and told him everything. Vigor smiled and replied “My friend, the game has just begun. Let’s see how intelligent the great jackal Elon is.”
A week after Elon killed the Ferocious Pride with his tricks Queen Lenora of the cat family died. Since her son was too young, next in the chain of succession was Lion Vigor of Carvan Rock as so he took her place. Vigor was very concerned about his pride and he would not let anything go unnoticed.
As days passed the topic of discussion has come of how crooked jackal Elon burnt all those who attacked them from Lion Uproar the only survivor after that attack. Vigor was a blunt person and so he ordered him to send a message saying Elon should submit himself before him as soon as possible. Vigor sent two messengers to spread the word.
In the next day they reached from Qurion Rock the main cave of cat family and on their way they saw thousands of reindeers and they also saw the richness of the habitat. Finally after a long travel they reached Elon and passed the message of how Vigor summoned him to answer for his killings. Wanting no problem Elon passed his responsibility to Leo to take care of the habitat in his absence he started his journey along with a pack of wolves to guard him.
When he reached Qurion Rock Elon was made to stand in the centerhe reached he was made to stand in the center surrounded by Lions, Tigers and leopards. Irfi asked if Elon ordered the trap and without fear Elon said Yes. Irfi now warned Elon saying they would all attack on Grey Wood to avenge their brother’s who were burned
Elon waited as he knew how this all went. Now Irfi acted as if he thought for a moment and said I would give you a choice. We either attack you or you pay us tribune. Elon knew that would be the deal as all others were out of food. Elon smiled and replied Wise King Irfi you are generous in your offer but I cannot sell my brothers for the cause of no attack.
Irfi roared and all other members stood all at once. He looked at Elon and said killing a few animals for others is not a bad thing. Elon said “Oh King do you know what makes a habitat? Every animal has its role and since no one properly managed your habitats are now starving. Saying this Elon left.
After Elon left the messengers who went to Grey Wood and described how much food is available. Irfi all at once ordered all members to get ready for a strike. Though his ministers adviced him not to Irfi was confident. Elon reached back and talked to everyone and planned in such a way that the north would have elephants guarding. To the south bulls would be guarding. To the left and right as there are forests to the left he assigned Snakes and to the right he ordered the Lions and others to guard.
The next day as expected all members of Cat Family attacked. Elon ordered Lasher to see how they were coming. It informed him they were forming a circle around the forest. Elon smiled and sent Leo to the left side forest. As Elon expected all the cats to leave the forest he knew that Leo would not stop them as Leo was the son of Irfi who himself attacked him.
That is why he kept the majority of Snakes at the center to protect the herbivores. Thanks to Leo he and his father came to the center to attack. Elon could not kill his best friend and that is why he asked Ceceli to bite him. Leo and Irfi had come towards Elon crossing many snakes and both of them wanted to corner Elon and all of sudden Ceceli jumped and bit on Leo’s forehead. Seeing his son Irfi lost his focus and that is when Elon jumped and pierced his poison nail on his left leg. Irfi stood for two seconds and fell down.
Elon with the help of bulls and elephants threw out all others. Next day Elon assembled everyone and told them how Leo for the cause of helping his father has tried to build trust by killing other lions earlier in the pit. Later when the other habitats were suffering out of food Irfi conspired against their queen and killed her for the cause of attacking us and that is how Leo betrayed us. Saying this Elon said “I promise to you that we all will be safe only when everyone of us trusts one another.”
