    Shere Khan had his tiny jaws gripped around the edge of what he guessed was a man cub’s nest, which he hefted the rest of the way up to the big, closed off den. He squatted down on his haunches to catch his breath, sweating through his mouth and the fleshy pads of his paws.

    He’d picked the wrong time of day to mess around with man cub nests, the sun being at its hottest in a piercing blue sky, but it would’ve been foolish not to seize hold of an opportunity.

    Shere Khan had been stalking squirrels and dingy gray birds in a grassy area when he’d spotted a human mother and her bald, ugly cub. She’d been watching over it while it’d crawled across a bright animal skin, the pair of them making annoying squeaks and yips, while the nest lay unattended behind them. It’d given him a wonderful idea.

    Eager to find his familiar old jungle or those loser cubs, at least, he’d grown desperate enough to creep through the man villages scattered throughout the area. He’d learned over time that not all humans were bad, most quick to offer him food and shelter from the elements. In typical cat fashion, he’d been happy to exploit their kindness and generosity, before moving on to the next place without thanking them, or bidding them farewell.

    He was hot, tired and hungry after another day of searching this man village fruitlessly, and wanted another soft human to offer him their hospitality. He’d endear even the ones with the hardest hearts to him with a man cub nest! Heh, heh, heh…

    Shere Khan knocked on the door of the den with his front paw, then rushed inside the nest, burrowing under a thick animal skin. He wriggled around until he was lying on his back, his fuzzy head poking out of the top, just the way he’d seen the human cubs do it as their mothers pushed them along the flat, smooth rocks of their man villages and man towns.

    Keeping his eyes on the sealed up den, he schooled his expression into one of innocence and calm. He hoped they’d hurry up and answer his knock soon, as the cloying smell of flowers stained the insides of the man cub nest.

    She was waiting out the heat of the noon sun in the cave that served as her bedroom today. She had ended up taking a nap or trying to but the heat was interfering with her rest. Maybe getting something cold to drink or a swim would help and leaving her hat behind for now as headwear would make things worse.

    "What's that?" Biyomon stirred as something struck the blanket they were using as a front door and the girl blinked, rubbing the traces of sleep from her eyes before getting up to see.

    Peeking out, she frowned as she saw a baby's bassinet lying in front of the cave entrance and glanced around. No-one was hurrying away so what was going on - was this Pandora's latest idea of fun? A quick glance at the occupant of the basket seemed to further her question as a baby, yet not the one she was expecting to see, looked back up at her.

    It seemed fate worked in mysterious ways as she recalled her earlier conversation with Asami, about wanting to adopt a cat if she could find one - this wasn't exactly what she had hoped for. But considering how hot it was outside, she decided to move the basket inside the cave so the cub could cool down before she went looking for the owner if there was one.

    Moving to grab a basket handle in each hand, Sora shoved her way back into the cave where Biyomon had woken up enough to watch her.

    A woman cub with brown fur on her head picked up his nest and carried him into her den. Hmph. He’d been expecting something a little more sophisticated than a dingy cave that smelt funny. Some of the humans he’d stayed with had objects that allowed you to control the weather with just one swipe of a paw! There were tall white boxes that made ice and snow, as well as short squat ones containing suns. They made everything too hot, though. He’d once burned his paw pads badly trying to scramble inside and enjoy the heat.

    Shere Khan clambered out of the nest, shaking himself from the top of his head to the tip of his tail as though to rid himself of that overpowering flower scent. Ugh. He hoped she had one of those metal rods mounted above a deep set bowl, so he could give himself a proper wash. When you turned their shiny heads in a certain direction, they made it rain!

    “Hello, woman cub,” he greeted her slyly. “My mummy wanted me to stay with you a few days. She’s too busy hunting to look after m-”

    His pupils contracted at the sight of a large pink bird stood in the cave with them. Shere Khan crouched down low on his chest, rump poised as he got ready to leap. She stocked live food in her den! That was far better than weather controlling man things!

    “You weren’t planning to eat this one all on your own, were you?” he licked his lips, his tone nonchalant, but also insinuating that she was a big fat greedy guts if she didn’t give everything to him share with him right this second.
