It was a beautiful day in the Pridelands.
The Lion Guard was doing a patrol in Kilio Valley.
"How's Maple?" Beshte asked.
"She's fine." Fuli 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.
"Thanks, Ono." Bunga said.
Fuli pressed her muzzle against Kion’s cheek.
“Can I visit Mari?” Fuli asked.
They bade goodbye to their friends, and headed towards Pride Rock.
When they arrived, Mari rushed to greet them.
“Hi!” Marigold said brightly.
Fuli’s expression softened.
She knelt down, and nuzzled Mari’s cheek.
“Hi Mari.” Fuli said.
Kion moved forward, and knelt to nuzzle Mari’s cheek.
“Are you having a good day?” Kion asked.
“Come inside and sit with me.” Mari said.
“Okay, sweetheart.” Fuli said.
She and Kion followed Mari into the den.
They settled down amongst the moss.
Meanwhile, Nita had met up with Rafiki at his tree.
She was helping him count juniper berries.
“How’s Midnight?” Nita asked.
“She is fine.” Rafiki said.
