Night wars

 Isolated and surrounded by her worst enemies
 The lioness fought hard, but  her fate was  sealed
"You're gonna die tonight kitty kat" one hyena said
Then he bit her viciously
The others joined the attack....
When the dust had settled The  lioness lay lifeless.....

  "Hey did you hear the commotion last night"
 one lion  asked to the other
 "It was the hyenas and lionesses fighting"
replied another
 "Were there any casualties"
asked the lion with the black mane
 " Yes,   they  killed  a lioness last night"
 answered another."But tonight they'll feel the pain" he added

Later that night they heard the hyenas laughing
A laughter that curdled their blood
The lions began walking towards the hyenas
The smell of blood was everywhere

The lions were focused on the battle ahead
"There'll be some dead hyenas tonight"
The golden maned lion said
They increased their pace  as the stench of hyena intensified

The hyenas stopped laughing 
When the lions came into view
The lions attacked immediately, the payback was swift and deadly
And many of the hyenas fled
When it was over 3 hyenas lay dead
And the faces of the big cats were stained in blood
Roars of victory echoed through the night
