It was a peaceful day in the Pridelands.
The Pridelanders were enjoying the sunshine at the Meadow.
The Lion Guard had joined them.
"Daddy, I've been practicing my song for Kupatana" Kiara said.
She blinked affectionately at Kion and a purr rose in her throat.
Kion leaned against her side.
Simba's gaze softened as he watched the exchange between his children.
"I'm sure you'll make us proud." He said encouragingly.
Kiara rushed forward and nuzzled Simba's cheek.
"Thanks Daddy" she said.
Suddenly Kion jumped up.
Simba and Nala exchanged a glance.
"What's wrong, Kion?" Nala asked.
"Dad, Mom.. I think Janja's invading, I smell his scent" Kion said.
He nodded to Fuli and they crept forward.
"Kion, Janja's in the Meadow" Fuli said.
Kion rushed back to his parents.
"Dad, we need to get everyone to the safe cave as quickly as possible." He said.
Simba stood up.
"Nala take the lionesses to the safe cave" he ordered.
Nala nodded and began rounding up the lionesses.
Vitani padded forward.
"Has anyone seen Belee?" She asked.
Kovu and Kiara exchanged a glance.
"Wasn't she with you Tani?" Kion asked.
He sank his claws into the ground underneath them.
"I'll fly up and search from the air" Ono said.
He flew up and scanned the Savannah.
When Ono was done he landed on Beshte's back.
"Did you find her Ono?" Kion asked.
"Where's my daughter?" Kiara asked.
"I'm afraid she's been abducted by Janja" Ono reluctantly admitted.
Kion and Fuli exchanged a glance.
Kiara stepped away and pressed herself against Simba. “Our baby!” she whimpered.
"I'll lead a patrol to find Belee, it'll be ok Kiara. I won't stop until she's safe at home" Kion said.
He rubbed his muzzle against Kiara's foreleg.
"Thanks Kion" Kiara said.
She watched Kion lead his friends away.
Once they were out of earshot of The Meadow, Fuli turned to Kion.
"How are we going to find Belee?" She asked.
"My frIend Jasiri is Janja's niece, I know that she'll protect Belee while we're figuring out what to do" Kion said.
His statement was met by stunned silence.
Finally, Fuli broke the silence.
"You're friends with a hyena?" She asked.
"We'll discuss it later, Belee needs us." He said.
Fuli and Beshte exchanged a glance.
Kion began sniffing the ground, hoping to pick up Belee's scent.
He glanced at his friends.
"I've found her trail, now all we need to do is follow it." He said.
Suddenly Ono spotted something.
"Kion, I think you'll want to see this" he said.
Kion glanced up and let out a sigh of relief.
Belee was limping towards him.
She was closely followed by Jasiri
Kion rushed forward.
He nuzzled Belee's cheek before depositing her with Fuli.
"Thanks Jasiri, Kiara will be so pleased to see her" Kion said.
"I'm glad I could help, Kion" she said.
She turned around and bounded back to her home.
Kion began to lead Belee back to Pride Rock.
When they reached Pride Rock, Belee had a joyful reunion with her parents.
