It was a beautiful day in the Pridelands.
The Lion Guard was patrolling Nyani Grove.
“How's Mari?” Fuli asked.
"She's fine." Kion 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." Beshte said.
Kion glanced at Fuli.
“I have to go. Kopa wants to see me.” Kion said.
Fuli’s expression softened.
“Have a good time.” Fuli said.
Kion turned, and bounded off.
When he reached Pride Rock, he saw Kopa settled down outside the den.
Kion padded forward, and stretched to nuzzle Kopa’s cheek.
“Hi Kopa.” Kion said.
Kopa’s expression softened.
“Hi Kion.” Kopa said.
Kion crawled into Kopa’s paws, and nestled against him.
“Did you have a good patrol?” Kopa asked.
“I love you, Kopa.” Kion said.
Kopa rubbed a paw against Kion’s cheek.
“I love you too.” Kopa answered.
“Can we hunt together tonight?” Kion asked.
“Of course we can.” Kopa said.
Meanwhile, Nita had met up with Rafiki at his tree.
She was helping him count juniper berries.
“How’s Makini?” Nita asked.
“She is fine.” Rafiki said.
