Hi guy's!!!! Real quick note. If you haven't read my other story. Then this one might be confusing. So go read my other story! Then come back!!!
Chapter one. Returning to the Jade Palace.
Six months had past since Leon and Shadow had left the Jade Palace.
"Hey everybody!!!! Look what I got!!!!" Tigress yelled as she ran into the Training Hall.
"What is it!?!" Po asked. "Yes! What do you have, Tigress?" Shifu asked, walking over to her.
"It's a letter! From Shadow and Leon!!!" Tigress cried happily.
"Well... what are you waiting for? Read it!!!" Viper said. Tigress shook her head happily
"Ok!!! Dear Friends... how are you? Leon and I are doing just fine! We were able to find all of our friends and they joined us in restoring the valley! I miss you all very much!!! And can't wait to see you. Speaking of which!!! We will be returning to the Jade Palace in about three months!!! I can't wait to see you all!!! Oh and Leon says hi! He would have written to you as well. But he's busy. I'm afraid I must go. I can't wait to see you all. And I'm sorry I haven't written to you until now. We just got the messengers to stop by here! But I will see you all very soon! Your loving friends... ~Shadow and Leon!!!". Tigress said, finishing the letter.
"I'm SO glad their coming home!!!" Viper said. "Yeah!!! Hey! We should have a party!!!" Po said excitedly. "Panda... their not coming back for three more months!" Shifu said. Though he was smiling.
Po just frowned and started to whimper.
"(sigh) all right. You can have a party!" Shifu said. "Just keep it down!".
"YES!!!!! Party time!!!!" Po said as he started to dance around.
Tigress smiled. It would be so good to see them again.
Later that day. Po and the others had just finished their party and were cleaning up.
"TIGRESS!!!!!" Shifu yelled.
"Wow! He sound's mad!!!" Mantis said. "Yeah!!! What did you do, Tigress?" Monkey asked.
Tigress just shrugged her shoulders. "Guess I'll go see what he wants!!!".
Though she knew what Shifu wanted.
Tigress ran down to the lake. And there was Shifu. "Master Shifu!" Tigress said, bowing to him.
"Tigress... it's you and me now!" Shifu said. "What are we going to do today, father?" Tigress asked.
WAIT!!!! Father!?! That's right readers. After Shadow and Leon left. Shifu told Tigress that they should spend more time together. So almost everyday. They would meet down by the lake and spend time with each other. Just father and daughter.
"I thought we would just sit and mediate today..." Shifu said. Tigress smiled and sat down next to him.
Finally. It was time for dinner. "Thank you, Master Shifu!" Tigress said, bowing.
"No... thank you!" Shifu said, bowing as well. Then they walked to the Jade Palace.
The days turned into weeks. And the weeks turned into months. When finally the day came for Leon and Shadow to return to the Jade Palace.
They packed very little. For they knew if they packed light they could move quicker.
Which meant they would see their friends faster.
"You ready, Hon?" Leon asked. Walking into their hut.
"Yeah! Just give me a minute!" Shadow said getting up from the bed. Leon shook his head and walked out.
Shadow started to walk outside. But then she started to shake a little.
"Oh, come on!" she thought "I don't need this now!". But then she stopped shaking.
She sighed in relief, then walked outside.
"Good bye!!!" They both yelled as they left the valley.
"I'm going to miss that place..." Leon said sadly. "Well... we could always visit!" Shadow suggested.
Leon smiled. "You're always thinking!!!" He said as he gave her a hug.
They walked for what seemed to be forever. When they finally made to the Valley of Peace.
"We made it!" Shadow said as they walked into town. They were about half way to the Jade Palace when Shadow suddenly stopped. One paw flew to her stomach.
"Shadow? What's wrong?" Leon asked. Becoming worried.
"I think we need to get to the Jade Palace. Right now!" Shadow said, as she started to pant.
"Why?" Leon asked. Shadow looked up at him. "It's time..." she said with a smile. Leon shook his head and helped her to the Jade Palace.
They finally made it up the steps. And into the Palace. Where they saw Shifu walking past.
"Master Shifu!!!" Leon yelled. "Leon! Shadow! We didn't think you would be here so soon!" Shifu said.
"Ahhh!!!! Can we save the family reunion for later!?!" Shadow asked as she clung to Leon for support.
"What's wrong!?!" Shifu asked. Walking over to them.
"Shifu! Go and fetch a doctor!!!" Leon said as he helped Shadow to the bedrooms.
Shifu looked at him. Not understanding. "Why? What's wrong?" he asked.
"Shadow's going to have a baby!!!" Leon said happily.
Shifu stood there for a moment. Then ran off as fast as he could...

Chapter eleven: Packing time
Our heroes returned to the Jade Palace. Leon walked to his and Shadow's room. He looked around.
He felt tear's prick his eyes. And before he could stop them, they rolled down his face. He walked over to the bed and sat down on it. He buried his face in his paw's and wept. He couldn't lose Shadow.
He loved her with all his heart. He just couldn't lose her. She was his best friend. The mother of his children. His wife. She was always there for him. Why couldn't he have been there for her.
Just then, there was a knock on the door. Leon looked up at the door and saw Po walk in.
"Leon? Are you ok?" Po asked, sitting down beside him. "I can't lose her, Po! I just can't!" Leon confessed. The tear's were still spilling down his face. "You're not gonna lose her. We're gonna get her back! You've just gotta believe it!" Po said, patting him on the back. Leon smiled at him.
Po could always make him feel better. Then Po got up. "I better get done packing. Don't want Shifu yelling at me!" Po said with a laugh. Leon laughed as well. "See ya soon!" Po said.
Then he walked out of the room. Leon sighed and got up off the bed. He walked over and picked up a sword belt. he fastened on and picked up a beautiful sword. It was light blue and had patterns like the wind on it. Shadow had given it to him for a wedding present. He had gotten very good at using it while doing Kung Fu. He put it in it's pouch and grabbed a few more thing's before walking out the door.
He walked to Silver and Blaze's room. They were packing as well. "Where do you two think you're going?" Leon asked. "We're going with you!" Blaze said. "We want to help save mama, too!" Silver protested. Leon sighed. "I don't think that's a good idea. I don't want you to get hurt!" Leon said. "We're coming and that's that!" Silver said, crossing his arm's. Leon shook his head. He really was just like Shadow. "Fine. But I want you to stay close, understand?" Leon asked.
They nodded their head's happily.
Leon left them to get done with their packing. He walked through the hall's, when he bumped into Shakira.
"Oh I'm sorry!" she said, backing up. "No. It was my fault!" Leon said. "Um, Leon... My children and I would like to come with you!" Shakira said. Leon stared at her. "We couldn't ask that!" Leon protested. "We want to. Shadow and I are a lot alike. I want to help. And my children like her. They want to help as well!!!!" Shakira said. Leon smiled. "Thank you." Leon said quietly. "It will be alright! We'll get her back!" Shakira said sweetly. Leon smiled. She was like Shadow. Leon left her to pack and walked out to the lake. He looked around. He had married Shadow here. It was a special place to him and Shadow.
He walked over to a rock and sat down on it. He just sat there. He wasn't sure if he should feel happy that they were going to get her. Sad that she was gone. Or worried about what Tanis might do to her.
All these feeling's swirled around inside him. But nothing happened. No joy. No fear. No tear's.
Soon Master Shifu came to find him. "Leon?" he asked. Looking around. "Right here, Master Shifu!" Leon said, getting up from the rock he was sitting on. "Ah! There you are! Are you ready to go?" Shifu asked. Leon nodded his head. "As ready as I'll ever be!" he said. Shifu smiled at him. "Then let us be off!" he said, turning back to the Jade Palace. Leon fell into step with him. When they got back to the palace. They saw everybody waiting for them. Leon smiled. "We will find Shadow. We will bring her home. And Tanis. Will. Pay!" Leon thought as he picked up his bag. And they set off in search of Shadow...
