It was a peaceful day in the Pridelands.
The Pridelanders were heading to Mizimu Grove to celebrate Kupatana.
Kion and Kiara were walking together.
"Isn't Clea giving the contribution?" Kion asked.
When the Pridelanders arrived at Mizimu Grove, Kion and his family settled down on the ledge.
The Pridelanders and inhabitants of the kingdom arranged themselves below them.
Simba stepped forward.
“As the royal contribution, my daughter-in-law will now give a speech.” Simba said.
He moved aside as Clea stepped forward.
Clea cleared her throat.
“Today, we are here not just to witness the blooming of the baobab flowers, but to celebrate our community.” She said.
She glanced behind her at Kenai and Kia.
“I am proud to have the honor of caring for all that respect the Circle of Life.” She said.
As the animals cheered, Simba stepped forward, and cleared his throat.
"I believe the celebration can begin." He said.
Rafiki stepped forward, and waved his staff.
The Pridelanders and animals of the kingdom watched the baobab flowers bloom.
Kion leaned against Clea’s foreleg.
“That was wonderful.” He said.
“Thank you, Kion.” Clea answered.
“Happy Kupatana, Clea.” Kion said.
“Happy Kupatana, Kion.” Clea said warmly.
