Jeia came to the door of the entrance with her backpack filled with the few possessions she had as well as the gifts given from a stranger. She intended to take a closer look once she was adopted. But as quick as her happiness came, it left when she saw the scene fold out.
Two panther adults were being pelted with garbage, such as eggs, dirt, water balloons, anything that you could find at an orphanage. The two big cats were furious at the kids and didn't want any of the sort. They immediately ran off the other direction, covered in trash.
Jeia lost her grip on her bag and let it drop on the floor. 'No, it can't be.' she thought. Jeia slowly walked down the steps to the front yard. She watched her own species, the only other panthers she had ever seen in her life, just....run off and disappear.
The kids cheered and high-fived in joy, happy to know that their friend is still with them, but not everyone was happy. The only ones who still didn't seem to comprehend the situation was Tigress and Delgado. It didn't take long to figure it out.
Tigress and Delgado looked at everyone, seeing them celebrate, but they knew this was wrong. Delgado looked over to the steps and saw Jeia. His heart broke when he saw Jeia, for the first time, have a tear rolling down her face.
Concern jumping to him, he ran over, "Jeia!"
Tigress turned her head and also saw he friend in distress. Quickly, she ran over as well. Once she was over, Tigress put her paw on Jeia's shoulder. "Jeia..."
Jeia looked up, but she wasn't filled with sadness. She clenched her teeth and bared them, growling as low as she could. Her ears went flat against her head and her glare was the sharpest they have ever been. "What... have you... done?" She breathed out.
Tigress and Delgado looked at each other in confusion, until they realized that she was thinking they had planned this.
Delgado spoke, his ears going down in sympathy. "Jeia, you know we wouldn't do anything like this..."
Jeia yelled, "You're covered in the garbage you have thrown at them! The ones who could've adopted me! You think I am going to forgive you?!"
Delgado desperately spoke out, "We never did this, I promise!"
Jeia screamed, "LIAR!" In fury, Jeia pushed Delgado with all her might.
Delgado was pushed with such force that he had to step back a few times, but there was not much ground. There was stairs. Delgado lost his footing and fell down those stairs, crying out as he hit the hard cement until he finally landed on the soft grass. He whimpered, too hurt to move. He was not hurt only physically, but also spiritually in his heart.
"Delgado!" Tigress cried out. Tigress turned to her friend. "Why did you-?!" She didn't get the time to finish when Jeia had kicked her in the stomach, sending her flying.
Delgado was too determined to keep everyone safe to stay on the ground. He got up on all fours and ran over. He only had one choice and jumped to collide with Tigress, which will at least slow down the impact. The both of them got hit and rolled on the ground. No doubt Tigress would have gotten seriously hurt.
Delgado winced. The pain hurt, but it was worth it for his friends. Delgado spoke what he first thought, "Tigress, are you okay?"
"Yeah, I'm fine. Thank you." Tigress said sincerely.
The two then looked at Jeia. She was taking something out of her bag. A bottle. She poured carelessly half of the bottle in her hand, where it surprisingly glowed at the touch. Soon, it flew around her body and they merged together. Her eyes turned a bright red.
The tiger and wolf was hit with fear. They knew that there was no turning back. The kids at the orphanage realized what was going on and back away in fear.
Jeia's paws glowed. She squated down, putting the back of the paws on the ground. Then, she lifted them as she stood again and simultaneously the ground shook. An earthquake enacted.
