It was a peaceful day in the Pridelands.
The Lion Guard was patrolling Ukuni Woods.
"How's your family?" Fuli asked.
"Everyone's fine" Kion said.
Kion glanced at Ono.
Ono nodded, and took to the sky.
He returned a moment later, and settled down on Beshte's back.
"Janja's Clan is attacking Mtoto at Lake Matope" Ono said.
"Let's go, Lion Guard" Kion said.
Ono led the way to Lake Matope.
When they arrived, Kion saw Mtoto cornered in the deep water.
He and Fuli exchanged a glance, and Kion bounded forward.
"Janja, Leave him alone!" He called
Kion glanced at Fuli.
Fuli nodded, and dashed forward.
She guided Mtoto towards Beshte.
Kion braced himself, and performed the Roar.
It sent Janja's Clan toppling backwards.
Kion turned to Mtoto.
"Are you okay?" He asked.
He pressed himself against Beshte.
"Don't worry. You're safe now" Beshte said.
"We'll escort you back to Kilio Valley" Fuli added.
"Really?" Mtoto asked.
"Of course. Come on" he said.
He led the way to Kilio Valley.
When they arrived, Matembo rushed forward.
"Thank goodness, I was getting worried. Are you okay, Mtoto?" She asked.
"Janja attacked me, but the Lion Guard saved me, Mom" he said.
Matembo glanced at Kion.
"Is this true?" She asked.
"He's not hurt" he said.
Matembo leaned down, and pressed her cheek against Kion's.
"Thank you" she said.
"You're welcome" Kion said warmly.
Meanwhile, Simba and Nala had met up inside the den.
They were settled down amongst the moss.
"How was the hunt?" Simba asked.
"It was fine" Nala said.
She rubbed her muzzle against Simba's cheek.
"I love you" she said.
"I love you too" Simba purred.
He extended a paw, and Nala nestled closer to him.
