It was a peaceful day in the Pridelands.
The Lion Guard was patrolling Hapuna Valley.
"What's Mari doing today?" Fuli asked.
"Spending time with Nita and Clea" Kion said.
He 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" he said.
"Thanks Ono" Fuli purred.
Meanwhile, Clea and Mari had met up with Nita at the Meadow.
They were settled down underneath the baobab tree.
"Aunt Clea, why won't Mom let me explore on my own?" Mari asked.
Nita and Clea exchanged a glance.
"She doesn't want you to get hurt." Clea explained gently.
"Nana won't let me learn about hunting" Mari said grumpily.
"Sweetie, you're not old enough" Clea said.
Mari mewled with annoyance, and nestled closer to Clea's pelt.
"I love you Aunt Clea" Nita said.
"I love you both." Clea purred.
"Does Bemba love us?" Mari asked.
"She adores you" she said.
Meanwhile, Simba and Nala had met up at Ndefu Grove.
They were settled down underneath a baobab tree.
"I love you" Nala said suddenly.
"I love you too." Simba answered.
His reddish-brown eyes shown with love as he gazed at her.
"Would you like to go home?" Simba asked.
She and Simba stood up, and began to make their way back to Pride Rock
