100 Theme Challenge #4 - "Always"
Yay for unoriginal titles.
So this is based off of an RP
did, I suppose.
Not very long after Koto is killed and Shifu is brought to the Jade Palace, the cub has a nightmare that replays out the horrible events of his father's murder. Try as he might, he can't protect Koto and drive away the Ju-long assailants and wakes with a start.
After some comforting words from his new caretaker, Eri, Shifu finally gets back to sleep........ Only to be eerily greeted by the same nightmare. This time, however, Shifu's determined not to not let the images in his head ruin him, and faces the towering army before him with boldness beyond his age. Then, once Shifu is once again terribly alone, a certain someone shows up to reassure him he'll never be alone, no matter where life takes him or how old he gets.
