THK- A PromiseThe sun hung low in the sky, a perfect sphere of crimson. The rays bathed the long, dry grass in a red hue, the mountains far in the distance black against the horizon. On a hill beneath a thorn tree lay two balls of fur side-by-side. Their young eyes watched the flame-colored sunset, one in many more in their future. Their spotted coats, peach and silver, brushed against each other as they lay comfortably, their paws tucked beneath their chest."Hey Ukuu?" the small female spoke, her head moving to face the silver tom beside her."Yeah, Usi?""Remember the island?"The silver cub shifted his paws to a more comfortable position under his body. "Yeah....""Do you miss it?""A little...."The female cheetah's eyes studied the tom beside her before they cast out over the savannah, the shadows dancing with the gentle breeze."Ukuu?""Yeah?""I think I love you."The silver tom shyly glanced at her out of the corner of his eyes. A smile came to his lips. They were young....very young still.
