The Lion King V : The Final Clash    ver 1.4
                           by Eben Prentzler
                           [SCENE I : THE PRIDE LANDS REST]
                           [FADE IN, PRIDE ROCK]
                           (The Pride Lands finally healed after a few months.  Lobomi woke up with a 
                           sad heart still missing Kisasian.  Her heart also filled with guilt, when 
                           she thought of how she watched Uvoko's pride slaughter Sarafin, her best 
                           friend.  Lobomi got up and walked out of the den towards the waterhole.  
                           When she got there she saw Kiara busy drinking some water.)
                           LOBOMI : Good morning Kiara.
                           KIARA : Morning Lobomi, are you feeling better today ?
                           LOBOMI : Not actually, I still miss Sarafin and Kisasian.
                           KIARA : I know it's hard, but you must try to put it behind you.
                           LOBOMI : I still can't believe I didn't anything to save Sarafin when Uvoko's 
                           pride attacked her, but I was afraid that I will get killed to.
                           KIARA : I know it was a terrible thing that happened, Sarafin was my friend 
                           as well.  But you don't know how it is to lose someone until you lose
                           one of your own children.
                           LOBOMI : Actually I do, I still miss my sons.
                           KIARA : You never told me that you had sons.
                           LOBOMI : I know, I've tried to lock their memories far away.
                           KIARA : I'm sorry.
                           LOBOMI : You've got it all wrong, their not dead.
                           KIARA : (embarrassed) Whoops, silly me.
                           LOBOMI : Don't be embarrassed, they ran away from us when they were old 
                           enough to take care of themselves.  They said that they didn't want 
                           to wait for their father to die and that they were going to start 
                           their own pride somewhere else.
                           KIARA : Do you know where they are now ?
                           LOBOMI : I don't, but I've heard about a honourable pride that lives in the 
                           north and that they are led by two brothers.  So that can be only 
                           them. (Realising) I just realised something important.
                           KIARA : What is it ?
                           LOBOMI : Let's return to the den, I need to talk with Kovu.
                           (Kiara and Lobomi returned to the den.  As they entered the den Kovu came out 
                           still yawning.)
                           KIARA : Morning Kovu. 
                           (Kovu gets a fright)
                           KOVU : I told you don't scare me like that....Sorry, good morning Kiara.
                           KIARA : Lobomi wants to talk to you.
                           KOVU : (to Lobomi) Can it wait till I get back from the waterhole ?
                           LOBOMI : Sure.
                           (Kovu walks away.  After a while he comes back totally refreshed.
                           KOVU : Now what can I do for you ?
                           LOBOMI : I wish to return to my old home for a few days.
                           KOVU : Why ?
                           LOBOMI : I realised this morning that when Sarafin was killed, she wasn't 
                           given a proper memorial.
                           KOVU : Then we will go with you.
                           LOBOMI : That won't be necessary, I just want Chisbe and Finaras to go with 
                           me.  They were with me in Kisasian's pride and this will be 
                           important to them.
                           KOVU : Very well, your wish is granted.  How long will you be gone ?
                           LOBOMI : A week at the most.
                           (Kovu went inside the den and called for Chisbe and Finaras.  Lobomi, Chisbe 
                           and Finaras started to journey to their old home.  Kovu and Kiara returned 
                           to the den.  They laid next to each other trying to get in more sleep.)
                           KIARA : Kovu.
                           KOVU : Yeah.
                           KIARA : Now that all the threats against the Pride Lands are neutralised, you 
                           must promise me something.
                           KOVU : What is that ?
                           KIARA : Promise me that you will die old with me.
                           KOVU : There is nothing to be afraid of anymore.  And I will die with you 
                           when our time comes.
                           KIARA : (very satisfied) I'll take that as a promise.
                           (Thula woke up and went outside to bask in the sun.  After a while Kovu 
                           joined him.)
                           THULA : Morning dad.
                           KOVU : Morning son. How do feel today ?
                           THULA : I actually feel great, that promise you kept really made the 
                           difference in my life, but...
                           KOVU : But ?
                           THULA : (Bringing up Fasthe's death) If I have to suffer someone else's death 
                           like that again I will totally break apart.
                           KOVU : Don't worry you won't suffer like that again.
                           [FADE TO BLACK]
                           [SCENE II : LOBOMI'S SONS]
                           [FADE IN, KISASIAN'S DEN]
                           (Lobomi, Chisbe and  Finaras finally reached the den after two days.  They 
                           performed a traditional memorial for Sarafin.  After the memorial Lobomi 
                           asked Finaras to go and scout for food.  Chisbe went further into the den to
                           take a short nap, only to be woken up by talking.  She crawled closer to 
                           where the noises were coming from.  She peered out from behind a rock and 
                           saw Uvoko confronting Lobomi.)
                           LOBOMI : (To Uvoko) Why have you returned here ?
                           UVOKO : I just came for a rest from the blazing sun, I didn't know 
                           somebody was here.
                           LOBOMI : (Very angry) You may rest a bit, then you leave.
                           UVOKO : Thank you.
                           LOBOMI : (calming down) I didn't know you can be so polite.
                           UVOKO : I'm just full of surprises.
                           LOBOMI : I noticed.
                           UVOKO : Can I ask you a personal question ?
                           LOBOMI : Okay just one.
                           UVOKO : Did you have any children before ?
                           LOBOMI : Yes, but they moved to the north.  (Realising and getting very 
                           angry) If you think that my sons will follow you, then you must be 
                           crazier than I thought.
                           UVOKO : No, just smarter.
                           (Without warning Uvoko ripped out Lobomi's throat with his claws.  Just as it
                           happened Finaras returned.)
                           FINARAS : What's going on here ? (Noticing Uvoko standing over Lobomi's dead 
                           body) Oh no.
                           UVOKO : Oh Yes.
                           (Uvoko attacked Finaras and killed her brutally.  Chisbe didn't move a 
                           muscle, because she didn't want to give away her position and end up like 
                           Lobomi and Finaras.  When Uvoko finally left Chisbe started to cry out 
                           [FADE TO BLACK]
                           [SCENE III : THE LIE]
                           [FADE IN, LANDS NORTH OF PRIDE LANDS]
                           (Uvoko crosses the northern border.  He was desperately looking for a 
                           waterhole to quench his thirst.  He finally found a waterhole, but before 
                           he could take a drink he was stopped by several lionesses.  One lioness 
                           separated from the group and approached Uvoko, she seemed to be their 
                           LIONESS LEADER : Who are you ?
                           UVOKO : I am Uvoko previous mate to Zira, previous ruler of the western 
                           lands.  Could you tell me where I am ?
                           LIONESS LEADER : You are in the Wakwele Lands.
                           UVOKO : (very politely) May I ask who you are ?
                           LIONESS LEADER : I am Sahar, queen of the Wakwele Lands.  What are you doing 
                           in our lands ?
                           UVOKO : I wish to see your king, I need information.
                           SAHAR : Wish granted, follow us.
                           (Sahar and her lionesses led Uvoko to a beautiful rock formation in the 
                           middle of the lands.)
                           SAHAR : (To Uvoko) I will go and fetch the kings.  (To lionesses)Guard him.
                           (The Lionesses nodded and Sahar entered the den.  After a while she returned 
                           with two massive lions, both almost looking identical to Mufasa, except one 
                           has a dark pelt and dark mane and the other a light pelt, brown mane and 
                           terrible scar on his left cheek.)
                           DARK LION : (To Uvoko) You have entered our lands and wish to see us, what 
                           is your name ?
                           UVOKO : I am Uvoko previous mate to Zira, previous ruler of the western 
                           DARK LION : I am Waka (pointing to the lighter lion) and this is my brother 
                           Shwele, we are the rulers of these lands.
                           (Shwele stepped closer)
                           SHWELE : What is your business here ?
                           UVOKO : I am looking for the sons of Lobomi, wife and mate to the late 
                           Kisasian, ruler of the eastern lands. 
                           WAKA : Then you have found them.
                           UVOKO : I bring news from the eastern lands.
                           WAKA : What is the news ?
                           UVOKO : Lobomi has passed away recently.
                           SHWELE : (shocked) How did this happen ?
                           UVOKO : She was slaughtered by Kovu, ruler of the Pride Lands.
                           WAKA : Are you sure ?
                           UVOKO : Positive.
                           SHWELE : (getting very angry) Then I will kill him personally for drawing 
                           royal blood.
                           WAKA : (To Shwele) Fine that is your task.  (To Uvoko) How can we repay you 
                           for this news ?
                           UVOKO : Can you help me take over the Pride Lands ?
                           WAKA : With pleasure. What is your plan ?
                           UVOKO : First, let's get Kovu out of the way.
                           WAKA : It is done.  (To Shwele) Go and get him.
                           SHWELE : Right away.
                           (Shwele starts his long journey to the Pride Lands)
                           UVOKO : When he returns, then I will discuss the next part of my plan.
                           WAKA : Good.  (To Sahar) Sahar, take our guest to the waterhole.  I'm sure 
                           he's very thirsty from his journey.
                           UVOKO : Thank you, you are very kind king.
                           WAKA : Your welcome.
                           (Sahar and her lionesses led Uvoko back to the waterhole so that he can 
                           quench his thirst.  After Uvoko finished, Sahar started to talk.)
                           SAHAR : (very upset) Why did you bring this upsetting news to our lands ? We 
                           are a peaceful pride and hate going to war.
                           UVOKO : I just think that is wise to let someone know if their 
                           mother / father were slaughtered.
                           SAHAR : (very angry) I know what your thinking. I know your kind, you are one
                           of those rulers out to destroy everything.
                           UVOKO : If that is your thought.... So be it.

                           [FADE IN, PRIDE ROCK]
                           (It has almost been two weeks since Lobomi returned to the her old home.  
                           Kovu was on top of Pride Rock looking in the direction of Kisasian's den.  
                           Memories flash by as he remembers all details of the ambush and how he was 
                           kept against his will for so long.  His memories were finally broken by the 
                           voice of Kiara.)
                           KIARA : What are thinking about ?
                           KOVU : I'm concerned.
                           KIARA : How come ?
                           KOVU : Lobomi has been gone for almost two weeks, she said that they were 
                           only going to be a week at the most.
                           KIARA : I'm also concerned, if she decided to stay longer she would have 
                           informed us by now.
                           (A short silence follows)
                           KIARA : I can't take it anymore, I'm going to send one of my lionesses to 
                           go check on her.
                           KOVU : You do that.
                           (Kiara walks to the bottom of Pride Rock leaving Kovu to himself. She finds 
                           that most of the lionesses are basking in the sun.  She walks over to one of
                           the older lionesses.)
                           KIARA : Halea, wake up.
                           (Halea wakes up from her deep sleep.)
                           HALEA : Afternoon Kiara, how may I help you ?
                           KIARA : Halea, you have been a loyal friend to our pride for a long time 
                           and need to ask a favour of you that requires your skills.
                           HALEA : What's the favour ?
                           KIARA : I need you to journey to Kisasian's den.
                           HALEA : Why ?
                           KIARA : Lobomi has been gone to long and some of us are getting very 
                           HALEA : I'll do it for you.
                           KIARA : Thank you very much.
                           HALEA : Can I ask you a question ?
                           KIARA : Sure, why not ?
                           HALEA : Why, from all the lionesses did you pick me ?
                           KIARA : I trust you with my life and I know that you can make long journeys.
                           HALEA : (flattered) Thank you Kiara, you flatter me. (Changing the subject) 
                           How do I get to Kisasian's den ?
                           KIARA : Just go east and you will get there.
                           HALEA : I will leave at once.
                           (Halea took of towards the east.  As night falls she reached Kisasian's 
                           lands.  She enters the den only to discover the horror of Lobomi's body.  
                           She also saw Finaris mangled body in the back of the cave.  She suddenly 
                           heard whimpering coming out from behind a rock.  She went closer to 
                           investigate.  She found Chisbe shaking with fear.)
                           HALEA : Chisbe, what happened here ?
                           (Chisbe didn't answer.  Halea saw the horror on Chisbe's face and decided not 
                           to ask anymore of this tragedy.
                           HALEA : Come on, I will take you home.
                           (They travelled the whole night and reached Pride Rock as the sun showed its 
                           face over the horizon.  They rested a bit at the foot of Pride Rock. After a
                           hour's rest they got up to walk toward the entrance of the den.  Kovu 
                           emerges and sees the two coming up Pride Rock.)
                           KOVU : (calling into the den) KIARA! Come quick, Halea has returned with 
                           (Kiara came running out of the den.  Kiara saw the horror on Halea and 
                           Chisbe's faces.)
                           KIARA : Halea, what did you find out ?
                           HALEA : Something terrible has happened, Lobomi and Finaras were slaughtered.
                           KOVU : (voice of concern) What?
                           KIARA : It can't be true.
                           HALEA : It's true, I found their bodies in Kisasian's den.  Lobomi's throat 
                           was ripped out and Finaras was totally mangled.
                           KIARA : This is terrible.
                           (The day passed and everybody were saddened by the news of Lobomi's death.  
                           The morning came slowly and Halea and Kiara emerged from the den and started
                           to walk to the waterhole.)
                           KIARA : How is Chisbe ?
                           HALEA : Still haven't said a word.  What ever happened it must have been 
                           terrible to see.
                           KIARA : How do you know she saw what happened ?
                           HALEA : By the expression on her face, she must have seen what have happened.
                           (They reached the waterhole and took a long cool drink.)
                           KIARA : We better get back to the den, Kovu will be awake soon.
                           HALEA : How come ? You know how grumpy Kovu is in the morning.
                           KIARA : I know, but he said that he has a very important announcement to 
                           (Kiara and Halea made their way back to the den.  When they got their Kovu 
                           has already assembled the rest of the pride. Kiara joined Kovu were he was 
                           sitting and Halea joined the rest of the pride)
                           KOVU : Thank you all for getting up so early, but this is very important.
                           (Kovu thought a bit about what he was going to say and silence fell over 
                           the assembly.  Finally after a while of silence he spoke.)
                           KOVU : By now we all know about the tragedy that happened in Kisasian's den.  
                           Therefore I decided that it's time to enlarge the Pride Lands.
                           (A few mumbles came from the lionesses.)
                           KOVU : Please calm down.  (Waiting for silence) Now, I've talked to Thula and
                           we both agreed that we are going to extend the Pride Lands east 
                           towards Kisasian's den, but now it will be known as Thula's den.  
                           We decided to separate the pride into even numbers so that we can 
                           have a watch over the whole land.  I will continue my rule here and 
                           Thula will reign as the king of the eastern parts of the Pride Lands, 
                           this also includes the elephant graveyard to the north.
                           (A few pleasant mumbles came from the lionesses.)
                           KOVU : I know your excited, but I'm doing this for all of our security 
                           and well being.  Although we are going to separated, we must keep in 
                           touch at least once a week.  Okay I've said my part.  Dismiss.
                           (Everybody went back to sleep, except Kovu and Kiara who still sat on the 
                           same place.)
                           KIARA : Are you sure you know what your doing ?
                           KOVU : Yes, we must tighten our security so that another murder doesn't 
                           happen again.
                           KIARA : I'm not talking about splitting up.
                           KOVU : Are you talking about Thula ?
                           (Kiara nods silently)
                           KOVU : I see.  He is all grown up and must go on his own path.  He has been 
                           through to much and he needs this.  We can always produce a new cub 
                           for the Pride Lands to become the heir to these parts of the Pride 
                           KIARA : You're right, Thula must go on his own path.

                           (The sun comes up as the dawn of a new day starts.  The whole pride was 
                           assembled at the bottom of Pride Rock.)
                           KOVU : Okay lets see there are thirty of us, so it's fifteen for each side.  
                           (To Thula) Since you must start a new pride you may have the youngest 
                           lionesses in the pride.
                           (Thula made his selection and all the farewells started. Thula went to 
                           his mother.)
                           THULA : Goodbye mother, thank you for all your support all these months.  
                           I will miss you very much.
                           KIARA : Farewell Thula, you are a king now.  Just like your father and I 
                           wanted for so many months, so take care of yourself and your pride.  
                           And mind all the things that your father told you.
                           THULA : I will.
                           (Thula and Kiara embraced.  Thula approached his father with honour.)
                           THULA : Thank you dad, for believing in me.
                           KOVU : I know you will do me proud.
                           THULA : Just a question, who will be the heir to Pride Rock ?
                           KOVU : Your mother and I will produce a new heir to the throne.
                           (With that Kovu and Thula hugged and said their final goodbyes. Then Kovu 
                           decided to make one more farewell.)
                           KOVU : (To everybody) Listen Up ! (The lionesses went silent) This is it, 
                           I never thought that our pride will separate but the time is upon us.
                           We will keep on ruling the Pride Lands forever here at Pride Rock and 
                           in the east.  Let this day be known not as the day we separated but 
                           the day that we came together in voice saying that we will never give 
                           up for all eternity.  (Changing the subject) Before you go there is 
                           one more important thing I've got to say.  I have been noticing that
                           my son has been hanging around with most of the young lionesses 
                           especially one, so I'm proud to announce the betrothal of Thula and 
                           (All the lionesses cheered.  The final preparations were made and Thula and 
                           his lionesses left Pride Rock towards their new home in the east.)

                           behind him.)
                           WAKA : Beautiful isn't it?
                           UVOKO : Yes, very beautiful.
                           WAKA : (changing the subject) My spy return this morning and told me that 
                           Shwele has reached the Pride Lands, he's just waiting for right moment
                           to attack Kovu.
                           UVOKO : Good.
                           WAKA : There is something else as well.
                           UVOKO : I don't like the way you said that, what's wrong ?
                           WAKA : Kovu's pride has separated.
                           UVOKO : This is terrible all my plans will ne ruined, where did they go ?
                           WAKA : To my old home near the river of Kube.

                           Thula slowly awakens and notices that Nebe is up already sitting outside.  
                           He joins her.)

                           THULA : Thank you. (Changing subject) It's time to let my father know how 
                           it's going here.  Send your fastest lioness to Pride Rock to report.

                           from the den running towards Pride Rock.)

                           WAKA : Let's do it.  (To lionesses) Form a battle line behind us.
                           (The lionesses form a single horizontal line behind Waka and Uvoko and 
                           waited, ready for battle.  Uvoko nodds his head at Waka.)

                           too late.  Thula was attacked first by five strange lionesses and was killed
                           instantly.  The battle only lasted a few minutes.  All of Thula's pride were
                           totally destroyed except for the messanger who didn't know about the battle

                           and waits for his next message.

                           brought her in.  Once at the bottom of Pride Rock she started the journey 
                           home again.)

                           [FADE IN, THULA'S DEN]
                           (Night falls over the battle field and the bloody corpses of the once 
                           honourable pride shines dull in the moonlight.  The messenger enters the den
                           and sees the massacre.)
                           MESSENGER : (frightened yet heartbroken) Oh no, what happened here.
                           (The messenger hears a familiar voice behind her.  She turns around and sees 
                           UVOKO : Well let's recapture what happened here, let me see (thinking a bit) 
                           messenger leaves, an attack starts, Thula dies, massacre, massacre 
                           and I almost forgot the best part....MASSACRE.
                           MESSENGER : Uvoko, what have you done ?
                           UVOKO : Blind as well as stupid, can't you see...I've destroyed your pride, 
                           MESSENGER : You will never get away with this.
                           UVOKO : Oh I have already.  I'm a good!
                           (The messenger's heart fill with fear and she started to run, but it was no 
                           use.  She only got a few metres away from the den then she was dragged to 
                           the ground by several lionesses.)
                           UVOKO : (Yelling) Excellent ! Now for the second last part of my plan.

                           [SCENE VII : A RULER FALLS]
                           [FADE IN, PRIDE ROCK. MORNING]
                           (The morning sun once again fills the entrance of the den and Kovu awakes.  
                           He walks outside and took a nice long stretch.)
                           KOVU : (looking at the sunrise talking to himself) This is absolutely 
                           beautiful.  No matter how many mornings pass, I just can't get enough 
                           of this.
                           KIARA : Get enough of what ?
                           (Kovu gets a fright.  He turns around seeing Kiara behind him.)
                           KOVU : (grumpy) How many times have I told not to do that ?
                           KIARA : Sorry, (sarcastically) did a scare you , "grumpy".
                           KOVU : Hey, don't call me that.
                           KIARA : Sorry, let's start this morning right.....Morning Kovu.
                           KOVU : Morning Kiara.
                           KIARA : Now wasn't that easier than being grumpy every morning.
                           KOVU : I suppose your right, I will try to be less grumpy in the mornings.
                           KIARA : I would appreciate that.  Now, about that question I asked you.
                           KOVU : Oh yes, you asked what I couldn't get enough of.
                           KIARA : That's right.
                           KOVU : The sunrise, no matter what day it is, I always love watching the sun 
                           coming out of its hiding place.
                           (Kovu turns back to his original position.  And he thinks long and hard. 
                           Kiara looks at him.)
                           KIARA : What's troubling you ?
                           KOVU : I'm worried.
                           KIARA : Why ?
                           KOVU : It has been ten days since Thula's messenger went home and we haven't 
                           heard from them since then.
                           KIARA : Be patient, he probably forgot.
                           KOVU : Well if nobody arrives by tomorrow afternoon, then I'm going over 
                           there to see what's happening.
                           KIARA : Don't you trust your own son ?
                           KOVU : With my life, but you know that I'm still a bit over protective.  
                           Maybe it's because I missed so much of his life that I think he's 
                           still a cub.
                           KIARA : If it will make you feel better, then go.
                           KOVU : I will leave tomorrow at dawn.
                           (The day passed slowly, and the night even more slowly.  As the sun showed 
                           its sunbeams over the horizon, Kovu slowly awoke.)
                           KOVU : (whispering) Kiara, wake up.
                           (She wakes and yawns)
                           KIARA : (still sleepy) What ?
                           KOVU : (whispering) I'm leaving now.
                           KIARA : Okay, be careful.
                           KOVU : Of course.
                           (Kovu left the den and Kiara fell asleep again.  The afternoon sun is high in
                           the sky as Kovu enters his son's land.  He smells blood in the air and his 
                           stomach roars with hunger.  He breaks into a run and only hoped that is what
                           he thought it was.  But as he got closer to the den he went into shock when 
                           he saw the battle field.)
                           KOVU : (To himself) This can't be.
                           (Kovu looked around and found his son's body next to his wife's body.)
                           KOVU : (Screaming in despair) NO!
                           (He started to run back to Pride Rock at full speed.  As he reached the 
                           borders of Pride Rock, he was confronted by a massive light coloured lion.)
                           LION : (growling) I have been waiting for you.
                           KOVU : (growling) Oh you have, have you? Who are you?
                           LION : I am Shwele, son of Lobomi.
                           KOVU : I am Kovu, ruler of these lands.
                           SHWELE : I know that.
                           KOVU : Then why did you intrude ?
                           SHWELE : You should know why...So just confess and I will kill you quick and 
                           KOVU : (confused) Confess to what ?
                           SHWELE : The slaughtering of my mother.
                           KOVU : I didn't kill Lobomi.
                           SHWELE : You deny this, then you will day a slow painful death.
                           (Shwele attacked Kovu.  The battle was fierce, but because of Shwele's size 
                           and strength, he got the upper hand.  Shwele jumped on Kovu and pinned him 
                           hard to the ground.)
                           SHWELE : Time to die.
                           (Shwele inserted his jaws into Kovu's neck.  Slowly Kovu started to 
                           suffocate.  Kovu tried to get free, but he didn't have enough energy.  
                           Finally the lack of air got to him and he died slowly.)
                           SHWELE : (to Kovu's body) Pathetic.

                           [FADE IN, A STRANGE PLACE, LIKE A DREAM]
                           (Kovu awoke and surprisingly he wasn't in pain.  He looked around and just 
                           saw clouds.)
                           KOVU : Where am I ?
                           (Suddenly a image of a two trees crossed over each other appears.  And deep 
                           voice says)
                           VOICE : Enter.
                           (Kovu walked through the trees.  The deep voice spoke again.)
                           VOICE : Your time has come and you will now be judged.
                           (A short silence follows and Kovu still tries to figure out what happened.  
                           The deep voice continues.)
                           VOICE : You have been a good king, a wonderful father and a excellent 
                           husband.  Your rule over the Pride Rock will always be remembered.  
                           You have been judged worthy.  Welcome to the stars.
                           (Kovu finally realises that he must be dead.  There was a bright flash 
                           then he saw them. Kovu saw Simba, Nala, Vitani and Mufasa.  Simba, Nala and 
                           Mufasa approached him.)
                           SIMBA : Welcome to the stars Kovu.
                           KOVU : The stars, does this mean I'm dead.
                           NALA : Unfortunately.
                           KOVU : This can't be, I promised Kiara that I would die with her.
                           MUFASA : (same deep voice as before) Some promises can't be kept.  We just 
                           have except the life as it comes.
                           KOVU : You must be Simba's father and the voice I heard.
                           (Mufasa nods his head)
                           KOVU : (to Simba) Now I know where you got all your wisdom from.
                           (Vitani finally got the courage and approached Kovu.)
                           VITANI : Hi Kovu.
                           KOVU : Vitani.
                           VITANI : I missed you so much.
                           KOVU : I missed you to.
                           (Kovu and Vitani hugged)
                           KOVU : I still can't believe I'm dead.  How did this happen ?
                           NALA : You were over powered by one of Lobomi's sons.
                           KOVU : But why ?
                           SIMBA : Uvoko told them that you slaughtered Lobomi and so he filled their 
                           hearts with hate.
                           KOVU : Now that I'm dead, how will the "Circle Of Life" continue.
                           VITANI : Don't worry about that.  Kiara is carrying your cubs again....
                           SIMBA : And the "Circle of Life" will continue.
                           MUFASA : Let us show you around.
                           (They showed Kovu all the wonders of the stars.  When they finished Kovu was 
                           a bit depressed.)
                           SIMBA : What's the matter, don't you like it here ?
                           KOVU : I love it, but...
                           NALA : Tell us what's wrong.
                           KOVU : I wish I could see Kiara for one last time.
                           MUFASA : Now, we have explained that you can't go visit, unless it is a 
                           presentation or somebody calls you.
                           (Kovu dropped his head in despair.)

                           Uvoko, Waka and Sahar.)

                           SHWELE : Kovu is dead.
                           WAKA : Excellent.
                           SHWELE : What have you been up to since I was gone ?
                           SAHAR : Well we...
                           UVOKO : (interrupting) Sorry for interrupting, but I will answer that 
                           SAHAR : Go ahead.
                           UVOKO : While you were gone, we totally destroyed half of Kovu's pride.
                           SHWELE : Why did you do this ?
                           WAKA : They were a great threat to us.

                           HALEA : You called for us, Kiara.
                           KIARA : Yes.

                           KIARA : I want you three to travel to Thula's lands.
                           LESSEW : Why ?
                           KIARA : I'm getting really worried about Kovu, I know him, he's very 
                           responsible and would let use know if he was staying a bit longer.
                           HALEA : We're on our way, your majesty.
                           (Cire, Lessew and Halea ran out of the den towards the east.  As they reached 
                           the borders of Pride Rock they saw Kovu lying in the grass. Halea walked a 
                           bit closer.)
                           HALEA : Kovu!
                           (There came no answer.  Halea came even more closer.)
                           HALEA : He's dead.
                           LESSEW : Oh no, how ?
                           (Halea inspects Kovu's body closer and noticed the teeth marks on his throat)
                           HALEA : He was strangled.
                           CIRE : This will totally destroy Kiara.
                           HALEA : I know, but we can't keep it a secret from her.

                           half their pride and their king.

                           WAKA : Assemble your lionesses, we're going to take over the Pride Lands.
                           [FADE OUT]
                           [FADE IN, PRIDE ROCK]
                           (Kiara laid in the den, waiting for her lionesses to return.  Meanwhile at 
                           the bottom of Pride Rock, Halea and Lessew returned with Kovu's body.  All 
                           the lionesses gathered around Kovu's body.)
                           HALEA : (To lionesses) Stay here, I will go and get Kiara.
                           (Halea walked into the den with her head hanging low)
                           KIARA : (excited) Did you find Kovu ?
                           (Halea didn't answer)
                           KIARA : (more concerned) What did you find ? What happened ?
                           HALEA : Something terrible has happened....
                           (A cry of pain and sorrow came from within the den.)
                           KIARA : (heartbroken) NO!!
                           (She runs outside and sees Kovu's body.  She starts to cry terribly.)
                           KIARA : (Still with tears in her eyes) Does Thula know about this ?
                           HALEA : I send Cire ahead to inform him.
                           (Cire appeared from behind Pride Rock.)
                           HALEA : (to Cire) Where is Thula ?
                           CIRE : His whole pride has been destroyed, including him.
                           KIARA : No, this can't be.  My life is falling apart.
                           RANDOM LIONESSES : Kiara, what must we do now ?
                           KIARA : We will have a memorial tomorrow afternoon.
                           (Kiara returned to the den to cry further over the lost of her family.  The 
                           night passed and Kiara didn't want  to get up.  The afternoon finally came 
                           and she got up for the memorial service.  With a broken heart she completed
                           the memorial service.  As they finished a familiar voice says)
                           UVOKO : (sarcastically) That was beautiful.  Sniff!
                           [SCENE X : THE TRAITOR]
                           (Kiara confronts Uvoko)
                           KIARA : (getting angry) How dare you interrupt our memorial, have you now 
                           respect for the dead?
                           UVOKO : The last time I checked, not a chance.
                           KIARA : You, you killed Kovu.
                           (Another strange voice spoke)
                           SHWELE : No, I did.
                           KIARA : (Looking at Shwele) Who are you ?
                           SHWELE : I am Shwele son of Lobomi.
                           KIARA : Why did you commit this crime ?
                           SHWELE : Believe me, it was not a crime.
                           KIARA : Are you saying it's not a crime to murder a king.
                           SHWELE : I didn't murder him, I was simply carrying out his sentence...DEATH!
                           KIARA : (getting furious) Why was he sentenced to death ?
                           (Another lion appeared with about twenty lionesses.)
                           WAKA : He drew royal blood, by killing my mother.
                           KIARA : Who are you to accuse Kovu of such a crime?
                           WAKA : I am Waka son of Lobomi.
                           KIARA : I don't know where you got your source of information, but Kovu 
                           couldn't have killed Lobomi.
                           SHWELE : And why is that ?
                           KIARA : Lobomi was part of this pride, and Kovu loves all of his pride and 
                           would never be mean, angry or lay a paw on one of us.
                           WAKA : You are lying.
                           (Suddenly Chisbe appeared)
                           CHISBE : She is not a liar !
                           SHWELE : What makes you so sure ?
                           CHISBE : I am Chisbe last member of Kisasian's pride and I saw how Lobomi 
                           died with my own two eyes.
                           WAKA : (getting interested) Tell us more.
                           CHISBE : I went with Lobomi and my sister Finaras to Kisasian's den to pay 
                           our final respects to the late Sarafin.
                           WAKA : Go on.
                           CHISBE : When we finished I saw Uvoko rip out Lobomi's throat and brutally 
                           kill my sister.  So if your really looking for a murderer, (pointing
                           at Uvoko) There he is.
                           (Waka and Shwele turned towards Uvoko and started to growl at him.)
                           WAKA : (getting mad) Is this true Uvoko ?
                           UVOKO : Now, now let's don't get hasty.  Remember count to ten before you 
                           lose your temper.
                           SHWELE : I think it's a bit to late for that.
                           (Shwele attacked Uvoko and killed him the same way in which he killed Kovu.)
                           WAKA : Justice is done, the one who drew royal blood is dead.
                           SHWELE : Not yet.
                           WAKA : What do you mean ?
                           (Shwele ran up to the top of Pride Rock.)
                           SHWELE : I drew royal blood when I killed Kovu and therefore I must pay the 
                           penalty. (To Kiara) I'm sorry for all the pain we caused you, maybe
                           with this act you will forgive me.
                           (With that Shwele jumped of Pride Rock to his doom)
                           KIARA : And so justice is done.  (To Waka) I'm sorry about your brother, but 
                           I will not charge you and your pride for killing my son's pride.
                           WAKA : Why not ?
                           KIARA : There has been enough death, let us rather unite our prides.
                           WAKA : (in great respect) As you wish.
                           KIARA : You and your pride may return to your home, but your home will also 
                           be known as part of the Pride Lands.  (To everybody) Let it be known,
                           with this act that all lion prides of the Pride Lands will life 
                           together in peace and harmony.
                           (Waka and his pride returned to their home.)
                           [FADE TO BLACK]
                           [SCENE XI : THE CALL]
                           [FADE IN, PRIDE ROCK]
                           (It has been a month since Kovu's death and Kiara was still in pain. Halea 
                           enters the den.)
                           HALEA : Kiara, the pride is going hungry.
                           KIARA : Go and hunt.
                           HALEA : Yes your majesty.
                           (The night came and Kiara went for a walk in the Pride Lands.  She sat on 
                           a hill still crying a bit.)
                           KIARA : (calling) KOVU ! If you can hear me please help me, I am lost without 
                           (Meanwhile above in the stars Kovu hears a voice in the distance.)
                           KOVU : (To Simba) Did you hear that ?
                           SIMBA : Hear what ?
                           KOVU : A voice calling.
                           SIMBA : No, I can't hear it.  But if you can then you must go to that call.
                           KOVU : What?
                           SIMBA : Somebody is calling you, go and help.
                           (Kovu got up and followed the direction in which the voice was coming from.  
                           Meanwhile back in the Pride Lands, Kiara looked at the stars.)
                           KIARA : (to herself) There is no hope, nobody will come.
                           (Suddenly the wind started to blow and clouds started to form.  Kiara heard 
                           Kovu's voice calling her name.  She looked up and saw Kovu's image in the 
                           KIARA : You came, you really came.
                           KOVU : How can I help you ?
                           KIARA : I'm so lost without you, why did you break your promise ?
                           KOVU : Some promises were meant to be broken, the only thing that can break
                                  a promise is fate.  It was my time and you had to suffer that lost.
                           KIARA : But with you gone, how will the "Circle of Life" continue ?
                           KOVU : You don't need me to complete the "Circle of Life", you can complete
                                  it on your own.
                           KIARA : But how ?
                           KOVU : Haven't you noticed it yet ?
                           KIARA : Noticed what ?
                           KOVU : You are going to be mother again.
                           KIARA : How do you know ?
                           KOVU : I just know these things.  You must raise them the right way and 
                                  someday we will be together again.
                           (The image started to disappear)
                           KIARA : Don't go.
                           KOVU : I have to, We will be together again.  You'll see. 
                           [FADE TO BLACK]
                           [FINAL SCENE : CIRCLE OF LIFE FOREVER]
                           [FADE IN, PRIDE ROCK]
                           A few months passed after Kiara's vision.  She gave birth to two new cubs.  
                           She trained them in right way as they grew older.  Finally her time came and
                           she joined Kovu in stars and her children took over the Pride Lands.  And so 
                           it was for many more generations of lions.  The Pride Lands were never again 
                           threatened by hate, jealousy, murder or treachery.  And lions inhabited the 
                           Pride Lands for all time. Yes, maybe it was true that the Pride Lands were 
                           never again threatened by hate, jealousy,murder or treachery, but the Pride 
                           Lands were threatened one more time not by any of the above but from total 
                           annihilation when the man came to the beautiful Pride Lands.......
                           TO BE CONCLUDED.....
