It was a beautiful day in the Pridelands.
The Lion Guard was doing a patrol in Kilio Valley.
"How's Ma?" Fuli asked.
"She’s fine." Bunga answered.
Kion glanced at Ono.
Ono nodded, and took to the sky.
He returned a moment later, and settled down on Beshte's back.
"It's all clear." Ono said.
"Great job, Ono." Fuli said.
Kion cleared his throat.
“I have to go. Tani wants to see me.” Kion said.
Fuli’s expression softened.
“Have a good time.” Fuli said warmly.
Kion turned, and bounded off.
When he reached Pride Rock, he saw Vitani settled down outside the den.
Kion padded forward, and stretched to nuzzle Vitani’s cheek.
“Hi Tani.” Kion said.
Vitani’s expression softened.
“Hi Kion.” Vitani said.
Kion crawled into Vitani’s paws, and nestled against her.
“Did you have a good patrol?” Vitani asked.
“How was the hunt?” Kion asked.
“It was fine.” Vitani answered.
Kion pressed himself against Vitani’s pelt.
“Can we hunt together tonight?” Kion asked.
Vitani rubbed a paw against Kion’s cheek.
“Of course, Kion.” Vitani said.
She bent her head, and nuzzled Kion’s cheek.
“I love you, Tani.” Kion said.
“I love you too.” Vitani said.
Meanwhile, Nita had met up with Rafiki at his tree.
She was helping him count juniper berries.
“How is your family?” Rafiki asked.
“Everyone’s fine.” Nita answered.
