I looked up at the man. He said, "I'm your new daddy. My name's Jared Jensen." Jared named me "Kasi." He said he knew Swahili was an African language. So he looked up what "Speed" meant in Swahili. So, that's why he named me Kasi. Jared treated me right. Sure, I was isolated from other humans, but he still loved me.
He raised me like a human child. He taught me how to walk on my hind legs. He was the reason I knew English. He called me his son. For years, it was just me and Jared. Then, the police showed up.
They arrested Jared. They tried to take me away. I refused to be taken away. I didn't understand what Jared had done wrong. I wanted Jared. I ran away. Luckily, I was born a cheetah, so I definitely outran them.
I didn't have a clue about what to do. It was starting to rain, and I had no idea where to go. I looked for shelter for so long. I found an empty ally corner, and started to cry. After a while, I just fell asleep.
I woke up next to a lion and a tiger. I screamed, "Don't hurt me!" They cocked their heads. "You don't speak English?" They shook their heads, "Not well." The lion said, "We're not here to.. how do you say??" "Harm me?", I question. "Something like that", the lion said. The lion said, "My name is Simba." "Ganghan", the tiger said. Ganghan said, "Ganghan speaks weird. Ganghan hopes that doesn't..." "Bother me?", I question. Ganghan and Simba nodded. Ganghan, Simba, and I have been together ever since. I'm still worried that I'm going to lose them like I lost Jared. They can defend themselves though. I'm still worried..
