It was a long trip to find him! Especially because I can’t apparate. (Just for the record, as soon as I’m able to, I’ll be so happy!) And so I traveled halfway across the world--it was a long and dangerous trip! Sometimes I almost thought that I would end up like dinner. But that aside, I traveled to the Pridelands of Africa. And it was here that I met the most famous Lion of the Muggle world!
He was so lost in his own sad world. He didn’t dare to go home, just because he killed his father. Well, of course you shouldn’t kill your father, or believe your uncle, that you killed your father. Nonetheless, I’m talking about the almost very famous Lion, Simba!
Well yes Simba was this happy-go-lucky cub. He had nothing to worry about. Always playing around with his best friend. And then this one unhappy event turned out. His father died right
Before he met these two friends, Simba thought that the real life of a Lion was to hunt and be on guard, and lots more! But like I said, these two friends, called Timon and Pumbaa, taught Simba the actual meaning of being an Lion and the way he should really life his life.
Simba told me that what he learned from Timon and Pumbaa, was the way of life he hoped to be able to keep. It was an wonderful life! No worries, taking it really easy, and being able to relax whenever he felt like. His life with Timon and Pumbaa was like the life of a true Gryffindor! Sleeping, eating, chatting, idling and doing nothing or almost nothing all day long! Yes ,when I heard this it sounded like the perfect life of a true Gryff.
And of course by hearing this kind of story, I started to wonder why the heck someone would give up such an loveable life? I wouldn’t be able to do so! How could I life without my sleeping, eating and my idling around?! I’m like a pro at doing those things.
Simba’s reaction to this question was that he wanted to take care of his family. Save them from the horrible tyranny of his Uncle!
I don’t think I would be satisfied with that kind of answer. Giving my perfect life up for running the family business? Not really my thing! But then again that’s just me. So with this, I’m ending my first column, and letting you guys soak up everything I just said!
