It was a beautiful day in the Pridelands.
The Lion Guard was doing a patrol in Ndefu Grove.
"Tell me about Mari" Fuli said.
"She's enjoying patrolling with Dad" 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.
"Makuu's Float is attacking Nita at Huwezi Falls" Ono said.
Instantly, Kion turned to his friends
"Let's go" he said.
Ono led the way to Huwezi Falls.
When they reached Huwezi Falls, Kion saw Makuu cornering Nita against a log.
Kion stalked forward.
"Makuu. Leave her alone!" He called.
"What are you going to do, Kion? Roar at me? And risk hurting your niece?" He asked.
Kion glanced at Fuli.
Fuli nodded, and moved forward to guide Nita away.
Once they had settled behind him, Kion braced himself and performed the Roar.
It sent Makuu and his float toppling backwards.
Kion turned to Nita.
She was pressed against Fuli's side.
Kion padded over, and pressed his muzzle against Nita's.
"Are you okay?" He asked gently.
Nita nodded shakily.
She cleared her throat, and stood up.
"I was collecting herbs, Makuu ambushed me" Nita said.
Fuli rubbed a paw against her cheek.
"It's okay, you're safe now" she said.
Kion moved forward, and nuzzled Nita's cheek.
"I love you" he said.
"I love you too" Nita said.
She glanced up at Fuli.
"Want to come back to Pride Rock wth us and see Mari?" She asked.
She bade goodbye to her friends, and curled her tail around Nita's shoulders.
Kion led them back to Pride Rock.
