“Teela, Pois, dispose of the outsider. I will deal with the cub” Lady Liger growled. She got off the kiti cha enzi and walked down to the muddy ground. I grabbed my vibranium energy daggers and stood in a defensive position.
“Back down now cub and maybe I’ll spare your life” Liger threatened
“No” I said. She roared and lunged at me, four hundred pounds of human coming right at me. I flipped over her and kicked her back. She spun around and lunged again. This time I slid under her legs. When she lunged a third time, I punched her face, then her stomach, then her underarm where the pressure point was. Her left arm went limp. I hit her under her right arm and it went limp too. Finally, I did a series of pressure points on her legs and made her fall to the ground.
“Shall I do to wewe what wewe did to my mother?” I demanded. Her leg suddenly flashed out and swept my legs out from under me. She stood up and looked down on me. She brought out a ceremonial sword and pointed it to my throat. She stepped on my chest and held me down.
“Why don’t wewe ask her yourself” she growled, lifting the sword. As she was about to strike, something heavy landed on the ground beside me. It was the one called Bane. Lady Liger looked down at him. In her moment of hesitation, I kicked the sword away. I donkey kicked her under the chin and she went flying. She hit the dirt with a thud.
“The challenge is complete. Zina is our new Queen!” Oren said.
“No Oren. I am not the proper choice for Queen. wewe are” I said. I ripped the royal pendant off Lady Liger and presented it to Oren.
“All Hail Queen Oren of the Jaguar Tribe!” I shouted. It was rallied up kwa the people.
“But Oren, do me one favor as Queen: Stop some of the old ways. If not for them, Efuru would not have been killed and Lady Liger would not have ruled” I said
“Of course, Princess Zina” she bowed
“Now, I shall depart to America and help humanity with the six young heroes” I said, walking to them.
“Woah, whoa, whoa. wewe attack us, wewe ditch us, wewe use us and wewe expect to become part of the team? Why should we trust you?” Kid Flash exclaimed
“You shouldn’t. I will earn your trust” I said
“I’m not sure…” Aqualad said. His comm. link beeped and someone alisema something.
“Welcome to the team” he put out his hand. I shook it.
“Batman ordered it, didn’t he?” I asked as we headed back to the ship.
”Yeah, and wewe know Batman. He is well…” Aqualad said
“…Batman” I laughed
