This particular morning, there was no hustle and bustle in the Northern Water Tribe. It was silent as if no one lived there at all. Children stood behind their parents scared and shaking with absolute fear. The women held their loved close to them because they didn't want nothing to happen to them. The men were negotiating with a gang inside of one of the buildings. A little teenage girl stood behind her mother, not scared at all, no was she afraid of the gang inside of the tent. But what she saw next was going to change her forever. She saw her father being thrown out of the tent and it had looked like he had been Chi Blocked. Her jaw and fists were clenched as snow started to swirl all around her. Her mother caught then sight then knelt down to her level, shaking her head while breathing out a no in absolute fear. Soon, the Chi Blockers walked out of the tent then stared down at the body of her father. They oddly reserved the Chi Blocking that was placed upon him and left. Everyone dispersed back to their tent as Kasumi ran over to her father asking if she was okay. He nodded his head but then stared up at her mother because they both knew she had to go ahead and start training - Even though, they were scared of her to travel alone.






That was nearly seven years ago as she was seen looking out the window of their home at the rising sun. Her mother had walked into her room as she spoke that her master requested her services immediately. Kasumi lowered her head with a soft sigh escaping over her parted lips. She turned heel and walked past her mother and out of her room. Her eyes gazed towards her father and siblings as she smiled gently then offered them a small wave before heading out the door and making her trek towards the building were her master resided.

Upon entering his home, she saw that he was training another student waterbending. She walked in with a smile then that was when her master caught her out of the corner of her eye. He released the student in training or told him to take a break as she sat down and awaited her master's attention. "Ah, Kasumi, how have you been?" Kasumi raised up to her feet upon her master speaking towards her. "Good. I guess you heard too?" She spoke after bowing towards her master. Her master nodded his head at her questionable tone towards him. She sighed softly then looked towards him.

"These Chi Blocking fools are about to get on my nerves. I mean, who is malicious enough to attack every single nation?" Her master rested a hand upon her shoulder then spoke softly towards her. "Kasumi, you have those groups out there that are like that but it is up to you to make sure no other group rise up again." She looked off to the side then he continued. "Now, I've taken the liberty to call to the other nations and get you retrained by some of their best benders." Kasumi raised one of her delicate brows up at him as she stood to her feet after his hand was removed from her shoulder. "As a matter of fact, they're already here. Waiting for you." Her master handed her three bags then patted her on her back. "Your parents brought them over here last night. I am also going to give you my polar bear dog, Kowai." She smiled then nodded her head as he handed her the reigns.

She went out to get Kowai and saddled her up as she sat her three bags upon Kowai's back. She softly tugged the reigns as Kowai slowly walked towards the gates of the Northern Water Tribe. Upon getting there, she stared down at the group of benders but she was sure that at least two of them were non benders. Her brow raised as a female bared the colors of a Chi Blocker. Kasumi didn't want to make a scene on her very first day so she ignored that fact for right now.

"I remember seeing some of you guys in your respective nation. We all grew up since then but most of you know about that am I the Avatar and I want to be treated as such." She breathed after those words then continued. "I suppose that we are going to the Earth Kingdom first since that is the next element in the cycle." Her and Kowai walked past them as she hoped they knew to follow her. She didn't want to start the introductions until they actually started moving towards the Earth Kingdom.

She slid off of Kowai along with her bags as she handed Kowai and her to a crewman. "Take my bags to my room and take Kowai towards the kettle, please." The crewman nodded and did as he was told as she turned heel after petting Kowai, folding her arms over her chest, a smirk plastered upon her feminine features as she turned around and walked to the deck of the ship, standing close to the edge as a breeze blew over her. Her eyes turned back towards her mentors as she walked towards them.

"Okay. As I said before, I am the Avatar, Kasumi is what I prefer to be called. You guys are?"

"It would seem that the Wanderer is no longer alone..."





It was there that Asad Boder, the Drunken Golem, the Wanderer, the Outcast, had begun wondering how he had ended up as the Avatar's companion. He had met this girl once before when they were both still children but he barely recognized her. It could be that she had grown up and so had he... Or it could be his glazed eyes messing his vision up a little bit as he was getting through a hangover. He was standing, though now and then he would waver and nearly lose his footing as he sat through her introduction. His face was long, unkept. Stubble was turning to small hairs along his chin and up the sides of his face. He was significantly taller than her, though he was a bit taller than most of the people present. "The Avatar, eh? The dark, groggy voice would reply to her first statement.

"My name is Asad Boder, and I am known for many things. What you need to know is my ability to bend Earth is rivaled by few, maybe even none, and my skill with a blade is nothing to underestimate." To be perfectly honest, he had no idea how he ended up in this position. Outcasted by the Earth Kingdom, there was no way he was appointed as her teacher by them. Had he made some drunken deal the night before with one of the Water Tribe's elders? Did he seek her out of his own volition? Regardless, he was in this position now and had no real intention of leaving. To train the Avatar was nothing short of an honor, and perhaps an attempt to do some good in this world, to make some small atonement for his mistakes.

Looking over the other members here, he realized how much he actually stuck out. A man who looks decently older than he is, scars around his body, strange clothing and an even stranger pauldron... and he certainly was not dressed for the cold conditions that he was in. He did not seem too bothered by that, though. He seemed to be having more trouble standing in one spot than dealing with the cold. Luckily, alcohol helps with the cold. And there was a fair amount in his system from the night before. "Miss Avatar, I would need a word priv--" He was interrupted by a hiccup that made him jump a little bit, staggering a little bit before returning to his point. "I would need a word with you in private once these introductions are away. If we are going to the Earth Kingdom, we have something to discuss."

His hand rested on the handle of his blade as he spoke. It felt heavier to him at the mention of the Earth Kingdom, and holding on to it made it feel like it would not fall away. His gaze also noticably dropped to look into the water, just generally away from the group to make it known that he was done speaking for now.

Xue kept her back straight as a pole and her chin up as she joined up with the group that was waiting just inside the gates of the Northern Water Tribe. She could feel the glares boring into her but kept her eyes straight ahead and her posture proud and undaunted. Despite her outward appearance, Xue was more than a little nervous being surrounded by benders that most likely despised chi-blockers. She made sure to stand at the back of the group to keep from attracting attention but the colors dyed into her tiger seal skin coat made her stand out a good deal more than she would have liked.

Usually Xue would have gone with the blues and whites of the waterbenders when dressing herself for the short time they would be spending traveling with Kasumi at the North Pole, but the person who had contacted Xue to join the Avatar's group of trainers insisted that she wear something that would identify her as the chi-blocker she truly was. She had protested for a while but finally gave in and allowed her clothes to be dyed the customary colors of the chi-blocking resistance

The crunch of snow brought Xue from her trance and she looked up to see the Avatar, Kasumi, approaching them on the back of a polar bear dog and then stopping in front of them. Xue didn't miss the Avatar raise her eyebrow with an annoyed look when she noticed the colors of her coat, but ignored it. Kasumi then began to make a brief introduction of herself before they began towards the ship that would take them to the Earth Kingdom.

When on the ship, Kasumi announced that it was time for introductions and a drunk looking man stepped up and introduced himself as Asad Boder, an Earth Bender. When he finished his introduction, Xue stepped up with her heart in her throat.

"I suppose there's no use in postponing the inevitable." She began, crossing her arms over her chest in feigned nonchalance despite the hammering in her chest. "My name is Xue Zamora and I am a skilled chi-blocker. I've worked with elite chi-blocking generals during my time in the resistance and I know how they think. Go ahead and yell at me, attack me if you want, I don't really care. But you need me if you want to be successful so choose carefully." Xue shrugged and walked over to a barrel a few steps away from the group and sat down.

"Hold on, do I make a left at the iceberg or a right? Uhhg... friggen Nothpole."





"Damnit," Jin grumbled to himself as he trudged through ankle deep snow. He pulled his coat around himself a little tighter; the shiny black dragon scales adorning it did a good job if blocking out the blistering cold. In his hands he clutched an old weathered, wet piece of parchment; a map. He'd been traveling on foot for the last few days.

The North was truly a cold and unforgiving mistress. She had battered him this way and that and provided him with nothing he needed to sustain himself. The burning hunger in his stomach may have been the only thing staving off hypothermia.

He stopped for a moment and stretched the map out in front of himself with shakey hands. He rotated it one way and then another trying to get his bearings. He pulled the compass from his pocket but the needle only spun lazily in circles. He was too close to the pole to get a good reading. Still he had a good sense of direction and he was fair sure he was standing in the spot that had been marked on the map. He lowered the map and took a look around. There was snow in every direction as far as the eye could see.

"There's supposed to be a hotsprings here!" he shouted to no one in particular. His voice was little more than a strained rasp.

He crumbled the map, threw it aside, and grumbled curses at the spirits-forsaken con-artist who had sold the worthless scrap to him a few villages back. He marched forward, not knowing where he was headed, only that if he didn't keep moving death was all that he would find.

He'd just gotten through a particularly nasty retrieval job that landed him up north. He'd spent a good deal of his pay on that map... though not nearly as much as he spent on his usual dose of post-job debauchery. Point is he was broke. Even if he could somehow find civilization and keep from freezing to death in this tundra, it would only be to starve to death a few days later. Still Jin would take starvation over being a human popsicle anyday. He trudged onward.

Eventually, on the horizon he saw a very large village which he soon identified as the Northern Water Tribe's capital. There was a group of people standing at it's gates. The group seemed pretty eclectic. One looked to be a Earth Kingdom guy, one was dressed like a chi blocker, one had the distinctive stance of a fire bender, and 'hold on,' he through to himself 'is that an air nomad?' From what he could make out as he marched closer, they were waiting for something. None of them were interacting with each other much. They seemed to be perfect strangers. 'They're not friends,' he thought. 'they're... they're working a job.' Whatever that group was up to Jin wanted in on it. After all it had to be a pretty important -- high paying -- gig to pull together a group like that. Another payday was just what he needed.

As Jin neared the others he decided to see if he could slip in amongst them without raising any eyebrows.

"Whew, it's cold out huh?" Jin said to the air nomad once he reached the pack. "I'm going to have to cut off the few toes I have left if we don't get somewhere warm soon." He threw his head back and chuckled heartily while casting quick glances at the others to gauge if they found his presence odd or not. His eyes lingered a for just a moment on the chi blocker. "Right? This guy knows what I mean," he said slapping the Earther on the back.

At that point Jin wanted to be quiet, maybe fade into the shadows, but his mouth had started working on it's own. "I'm just so glad to be a part of this team... I mean, what we're doing... it's going to change everything!"

Now if only he could figure out what the hell that was.

The first hint came to him in the form a girl riding atop a polar bear dog. She looked oddly familiar... in fact he could have sworn he'd seen her before... Yes that was it. She was the Avatar. As luck would have it the two of them met long ago. The Nothern Water Tribe had hired a bunch of his clan members to do some job or another. He was too young to do the work, or even be told what it was, so he was stranded in the village while the grown ups had all the fun. During that time he met Kasumi. The two of them didn't spend much time together, or exchange many words, but he was sure he'd made a lasting impression.

He was expecting her to hop off her bear at the sight of him, run over, and give him a heart felt hug, maybe with tears of joy cascading down her cute cheeks, but what really happened was a little less than that. She introduced herself and headed off towards the ship docked nearby.

He followed sheepishly.

When she asked for introductions he watched a few others go before himself. When he felt it was his turn he stepped forward, and said: "I am Jin Kaza, fighter, lover, and mercenary extraordinaire, once again at your service." He sunk into a deep bow, grabbed her hand, and gave the back of it a gentle kiss. He waited a beat and then returned to where he had stood before.

Eris Kiyoko

Eris sat silently watching her new companions carefully.

"Okay. As I said before, I am the Avatar, Kasumi is what I prefer to be called. You guys are?"
She wanted to gather as much information as she could before she was forced to give her own introduction.

A handsome yet scruffy man stood and began the introductions.

"My name is Asad Boder, and I am known for many things. What you need to know is my ability to bend Earth is rivaled by few, maybe even none, and my skill with a blade is nothing to underestimate." He said. She felt a flare of competition for a moment. She wanted to challenge him, just to test his words, and her abilities.

Next came a fairly beautiful woman.

"My name is Xue Zamora and I am a skilled chi-blocker. I've worked with elite chi-blocking generals during my time in the resistance and I know how they think. Go ahead and yell at me, attack me if you want, I don't really care. But you need me if you want to be successful so choose carefully." She said. Eris couldn’t help but feel bad for the woman…she seemed to have had to take a lot of bull for her previous choices.

“Everyone makes mistakes…” Eris murmured as she watched the girl walk over to a barrel and sat.

Last, an attractive man who seemed very flamboyant and cheerful. She couldn’t help but smile at his enthusiasm.

"I am Jin Kaza, fighter, lover, and mercenary extraordinaire, once again at your service” He said. Charming, that one was she said with a smile.

Finally, she stood, knowing it was her turn to introduce herself.

“Hello” She paused as she bowed deeply to Kasumi

“My name is Eris Kiyoko of the fire nation, it is a pleasure to be in your service Avatar Kasumi, my life is yours to use as needed...” She paused again as she turned and bowed to each of her new companions.

“And a pleasure to meet you all” Eris said with a kind smile. She straightened, still smiling, and sat.

Keirin watched completely passive as he stared at the beautiful young girl who was standing in front of him. He stared in silent awe at how beautiful she was. In his mind, he smiled, but he needed to keep his composure in order to complete his mission of training the Avatar. He listened as all of the others mentioned their names and where they came from. It seemed he was destined to be last. So, he stood up for everyone to see and spoke.

"Hello. My name is Keirin Hyungha of the Air Nomads. I am to be your teacher for the time being. I hope you can learn many things from me." He bowed as he said those words. He tried to sound as professional as possible because he didn't want the others to think of him as weak. He most definitely was not, and keeping the professional image in front of them was key to show that he was determined to do this job and perfect the Avatar's air bending skills. He was thankful that he was the one to train the Avatar when he knew that his skills were not exactly stellar. Well, he believed they weren't stellar even though people told him that he was among the best. He sighed as he sat down on the ground. Now, all he had to do now was wait for the Avatar to give a response to each and every one of the people standing before her.

Kasumi eyes fluttered towards the first person who was introducing himself. It was Asad, who appeared much older than the last time they had seen each other. He had a face full of hair and her ears twitched when he spoke about speaking with her in private. She nodded her head softly towards his way then shot a glance at the Chi Blocker who had started to introduce herself next. Kasumi wanted to stop her from talking and tell her that she needed to go last but she was suppose to keep the peace and not start anything amongst her mentors - But when the Chi Blocker was like yell at me, attack me or whatever you want and she wouldn't care, Kasumi fists clenched as the boat rocked a little.

She stood her ground but the boat rocked because it was finally setting sail. Kasumi eyed Xue and sighed. "No one is going to yell or attack you. You have my word." She smiled then eyed everyone else while pointing towards Xue. "If anyone touch or attack her, I'll throw you off this boat. I don't care where we are. Got it?" She waited for everyone's response before continuing with their introductions.

Next was Jin, oh, did puberty do him some good. She smiled cutely then shied away from him for awhile. He was always the charming kind of guy but she was young and never understood many things back then but now, she knew a lot. His introduction made her chuckle like a little schoolgirl but then she straightened up when he bowed and grabbed a hold of her hand, kissing the back of it. Kasumi blushed then winked towards Jin as her eyes fell upon the next mentor.

It was Eris. Her introduction was short. She kind of hated short introductions but she smiled towards Eris. "It's a pleasure to see you again, Eris." She then walked over towards the Airbender then heard his introduction, which was also short and not very amusing. She quirked her lips to the side as she turned heel and walked a few distances between then. "It's a pleasure to see you guys again though most of you look way better than you use to. I hope to learn all I can from you and much more." Kasumi smiled then turned her attention towards Asad. "You wish to speak to me in private?" She didn't need an answer to that question since he had stated it earlier than he indeed needed to speak with her. "Follow me, please."

Kasumi would lead him through a series of doors and finally into her room on the ship. She would hold the door open for Asad to enter then close it and walk over to her desk, where she pulled the chair out for Asad while she sat down on the edge of her bed. "So, what's on your mind?" She raised a delicate brow while leaning forward. "Oh, by the way, don't tell anyone how my room looks." She would laugh but she tried to lighten the mood in the atmosphere.

"Will she believe me? Or will she be cut down when she tries to apprehend me?"





As requested, Asad followed Kasumi through the ship after giving a sort of half-wave to the rest of the group. If he were to be with them, he decided to at least be friendly enough to acknowledge them. Once he got on the boat, however, he felt very uneasy. He never liked boats. The way they rock on the waters always made him a bit paranoid that it would just tip over and sink. He was a sitting duck when it came to water with no earth to bend. So naturally with this fear, he was a bit hesitant as he navigated the path to her room. Being hung over really did not help as he practically hugged the walls.

Once they made it to her room, he nodded his head in thanks for her holding the door open for him. Taking the chair she pulled out, he turned it around so that the back of the chair was pressed against his chest and his legs were on either side of the seat. He placed himself in the chair with a heavy groan as he closed his eyes for a brief moment, enjoying the reprieve from being on his feet. Once he opened his eyes, he took a look around the room as if wondering why she wanted to keep its presence a secret. Perhaps it was because he had not had a room of his own for years, but this one looked just fine to him.

"Very well, Avatar Kasumi. I will keep the state of your room in secret. In return, I would like for you to trust everything I am going to say right now." He paused for a moment, trying to think of a way to word this without giving away every detail. Giving all of the details would have been unnecessary, so there was no reason to do it. "I have changed since we last met so many years ago. I am no longer a highly-regarded swordsman and bender. Now I am a wanted man in the Earth Kingdom. I am convicted of a crime I did not commit. They believe I murdered an important man I was issued to protect. But I give you my word that I did not kill this man. I failed to protect him. And I am on a quest to find his killer, as well as help you, to bring him to justice."

The next part of his speech was the one he was not looking forward to. "My standing is on the line here. You know I am a wanted man. So you have two options." His tone, however naturally dark, seemed abnormally calm for someone in his position. "You can take me with you and let me teach you to bend the earth while allowing me to pursue my own quest as well... or you can attempt to turn me in. But neither of us will like the result of that... This is not a threat, but a warning. I will not let anything stand in my way." The hung over man stopped to take a breath as the boat rocked a little bit with the water's current. His expression turned grim and his face paled just a little bit. He absolutely hated boats. "K... Oh goodness... Keep me with you, and I will make you a master of Earthbending. I will do my best not to attract attention and disguise myself properly. We will help each other with our quests. The man would extend a tanned hand out to the Avatar, hoping that the one meant to keep peace would be understanding of his position and take his word. It was best to get this out of the way early rather than have her figure out later and have to explain the situation on less-than-great terms. "Is it a deal, Avatar Kasumi?"

Xue couldn't help but feel more than a little shocked when no one stepped forward to take her up on her offer and attack her, even more so when the Avatar herself defended the chi-blocker. Her eyes widened a bit, but she quickly masked her surprise and allowed everyone else to go through their introductions. Besides Kasumi and the earth bender, Asad, there was a silver haired weapons master named Jin whom she didn't recall hearing about during her debriefing when she was contacted to assist the Avatar, a small Fire Nation girl named Eris and an air nomad. Xue raised an eyebrow when Keirin, the air bender, introduced himself; she had never before met an air nomad, though she wasn't entirely surprised that there would be one in the Avatar's party.

When the introductions finished, Asad and Kasumi went off to speak of something privately and Xue found herself amongst three complete strangers, two of which were benders. Feeling suddenly uncomfortable, but not knowing where her own quarters were and thus not having a place to go to escape the awkward situation, Xue stood and scooted the barrel closer to the rim of the ship and then sat back on it, facing the ocean. 'Maybe if I ignore them they'll go away.' She thought dismally, looking out onto the chilly sea.

As he heard Jin whisper in his ear, "Ooh, she totally wants me," he got very annoyed. People who only looked to others as objects were pathetic. He just closed his eyes and just sat there. When he heard Xue move over to the railing, he opened one of his eyes and looked in her direction. He realized that the Avatar had told him not to touch her or attack her, but he just couldn't trust her. She had worked with the enemy and despite how she introduced herself, it didn't prove her to be any less traitorous. He was however interested in why she had raised an eyebrow when he introduced himself. He caught it just before he sat down and was slightly surprised at her reation. Maybe she had a thing for him, but he honestly didn't care. He was not about to become friends with a potential enemy. After he saw Jin walk over to her, he bet he was going to try and hit on her. He rolled his eye as he saw him give a grin as he said something to her and he honestly didn't care what he said.

He wondered what Asad might have to tell the Avatar, Kasumi, and why it was so important. It seemed like a pressing matter from the way he outright stated it in front of everyone. Kasumi also seemed to know him since they were little. Not that he cared what his relationship was with her, but he thought it might prove as useful information for a later date. Maybe he was going to confess or something... He smiled and let out a little chuckle as he thought of this. No... He was sure he wasn't childish enough to do that now... But, he couldn't help but be curious. After all that thought and the little laugh, he closed his eye and waited until he was instructed to do otherwise.

He closed his eye and then proceeded to just sit and wait until he was instructed to do otherwise.

Eris Kiyoko

Eris sighed as she watched the Avatar and Asad walk away, and Jin and Xue find themselves a corner. It seemed everyone was hitting it off famously except for her…then again, to be fair, her introduction had been a little short and to the point. She supposed she hadn’t left a lot of room for conversation there. She did want to get to know the group but honestly wasn’t sure how to begin. She had spent so much time on her own she wondered if she even had acceptable social skills any more…and her being a fire bender did not help as she found a lot of people did not seem to appreciate her element simply because they assumed she was hot headed and rude.

Eris tugged at the ribbon holding her hair up and let it fall around her shoulders, intending on braiding it. She liked it down but knew it made her look more petite and girlish…basically as if she was no threat. She sighed and tugged her hair, a nervous habit of hers.

Eris’s stomach rocked with the boat. She hated water…well less hate, more fear. She knew how to swim but she also knew it was only so long before she could drown. She turned to the air bender and smiled kindly.

“Hello, Keirin was it?” Eris questioned even though she was sure she was correct. She distinctly remembered his introduction because of his complete calm. She almost envied him for it.

“It seems we have quite a charmer on the boat” She commented with a small smile as she watched Jin in the corner with Xue. She wondered how the whole situation would play out.

She kind of felt bad for the girl. Xue practically had a ‘Go away’ sign tattooed on her forehead and Jin just didn’t seem to get it. She wondered for a moment if she should try and rescue Xue, then realized it would probably be unwelcome. Xue could take care of herself obviously.

“Then again, she is very pretty. And courageous for admitting where her previous allegiance was….I feel as though she will make a good ally when the time to fight comes.” Eris said almost absent mindedly.

The boat rocked once again. Eris clenched her fists on the table, her nails biting into her hands, and a moment of paralyzing terror sweeping over her. She took a deep breath and relaxed her hands and forced a smile on her face.

"This is why a wanderer should remain alone... But perhaps having some company on this road might be okay.."





Asad's hand retreated back to the chair as she did not actually shake it. However, her word was more than enough. It was understandable that she would not be overly-excited about traveling with a fugitive, but at least she was not about to turn him in. He rises quickly, staggering and only just barely able to catch himself before he fell over. Letting out a soft sigh, he finds balance for a moment and bows before the Avatar. "No. That is all. " The harshness of her words did not seem to bother him. He knew where she was coming from. Anyone that had housed him even for a night and figured that out really seemed to want him around much less. But who would want to risk themselves for one man?

He turned around and made his way to the door, trying not to fall over or feel sick from the boat's motions. "I will do my best not to be a burden and to make myself useful, Avatar Kasumi. You have my word." His word. If only people realized how much that actually meant. "I thank you for your time." And without waiting for any real response, he took off from her room.

Making his way back on deck, he had arrived just in time to hear the final rantings of the chi blocker. "...what you want, I don't care. I can't force you to trust me after all that I've done, but whether or not you trust me doesn't change the fact that I'm here. Besides, I would be lying if I said that I trust all of you as well." The wanderer raised an eyebrow at the situation, trying to assess it. They were to be at war with the Chi Blocker group. But this girl was with the Avatar, not with them. A deserter, perhaps? Maybe an outcast like himself? Whatever the reason, he was sure that it would cause some dissent within the group. "And I wonder why I stay by myself..." He mumbles to himself before making his way further out onto deck. A small wave rocked the boat ever so slightly and caught the Earthbender off guard, making him lose his footing. With one foot in the air, he rapidly began waving his arms around as if it woul help him regain balance. Of course, it only ended in failure.

With his face now flat on the deck, the Drunken Golem groaned and staggered up to his hands and knees. Feeling around his waist, he seemed rather frantic. As if something precious had been lost, his now-pale face was stricken with worry. After but a moment that expression would fade as he noticed a small, gourd-shaped container rolling slowly in a circle beside him. Snatching it up quickly, he popped the cork off the top and took a small sip of its contents. Almost instantly, all of his worry seemed to fade away. A small smile even touched his lips for a moment as he took in the scene around him. He was on a boat with the Avatar, other bending masters, a chi blocker, and a self-proclaimed weapons master. He actually wondered how a ragtag group like this is even formed. To him, it looked like a band of misfits playing the hero. "Heh... Don't know how I got myself into this mess. But let's hope it's not a bad decision." Once again, to himself.

Making his way to a crate that was on the deck, he sat down on it and cleared his throat. After taking another sip from his gourd container, he corked it and spoke up. "The rest of you... Fire Bender, Air Bender, Chi Blocker, Weapons guy... I am Asad Boder. If you have heard my name before, it is probable that you know I have earned the nickname 'Drunken Golem.' And there are reasons for that... But the most imporant reason..." He pauses to smile big, any grim expressions fading from his face almost instantly. "That reason is because nothing beats a good drink! Now, is anyone going to join me or are you all going to make a man drink alone?" He extends his gourd and keeps that big smile that showed off his teeth.

This was more than a gesture to just get drunk with the others. It had been a while since Asad let loose, ever felt like he had time to rest. If he was to be working with these people then he would at least need to get along with them. Whether or not he would come to trust any of them would still be determined...

Eris Kiyoko

"Maybe that's exactly what she wants us to think. I have no intention of harming her, but I can't simply blindly put trust in someone I have just met. Especially when they previously worked alongside our enemy. I suggest you do the same."

Eris hesitated. She was slightly shocked and a little aggravated at the air nomad’s hostility. She never expected someone who seemed so at peace to be so…harsh. She brushed her hair back out of her face and took a moment to collect herself.

"Like I said before; do what you want, I don't care. I can't force you to trust me after all that I've done, but whether or not you trust me doesn't change the fact that I'm here. Besides, I would be lying if I said that I trust all of you as well." Xue said then turned and ignored them. It was for the best.

“I am Kind of disappointed….” She murmured.
Eris studied the air nomad for a moment. She summoned her fire; it danced along her fingertips for a moment then burned a symbol into the wood.

“Keirin do you know what this means?” She asked with a kind smile.

“It’s the symbol of an all-female crime syndicate in the fire nation called the Red Butterflies…Beautiful and deadly, they rule the underground of the fire nation.” She paused, gathering her thoughts.

“Believe it or not I was raised by Earthbenders…up until age thirteen I thought I myself was an earthbender….until I burned down half my village. Needless to say I was no longer welcome there. Not long after I found myself in the fire nation starving, alone, scared…I was taken in by the Red Butterflies. They trained me in the ways of Firebending, They were my family for a long time…” She said. She took a deep breath and let it out.

“You never know what you’ll do to not lose the people you love until your loyalty is tested. For them I did some things that I will never be able to make up for…” Eris said quietly as memories flooded back to her. She shook her head and brought herself back to the present.

“I am not proud of myself or the things I’ve done. I have seen the darkest depths of the human soul and I have seen true human kindness…You may think me naive…but I apologize I am not willing to spend my entire life looking at people as if there is only evil in them…” Eris said as she stood slowly.

“It was a pleasure talking to you Keirin…” She said quietly before she stood.

She giggled as she watched Asad fall and offer a drink to all of them, though she declined and headed to the far side of the deck.

Eris Kiyoko

Eris was twirling fire on her fingers, a stress relieving habit she had picked up from her years with the Fire Butterflies. She watched the flame dance and skip across her hands with a small smile. She loved fire, it was so beautiful and free, but had some deep regretful feelings about being a fire bender.

Xue approached her and Eris smelled alcohol on her breath. She sighed and knew what was coming next.

"Eris, correct? I heard what you said to the air bender. Thank you for standing up for me, but I don't want you fighting my battles." Xue said. Eris felt a slight flash of irritation but she brushed it off. This girl was used to fighting for herself, and Eris understood. Eris turned and looked Xue in the eyes.

“Believe it or not Xue,” She paused, noting Xue’s shiver. She expanded the fire in her hands, sending the heat towards the girl.

“I did not do it for you. I simply stated my opinion.” Eris said as she looked out at the sea with a sad sigh.

“It is sad to see people have become so jaded and cynical. We are all comrades now, and if we do not have trust, we do not have anything” Eris said as she glanced up at the air nomad sitting on a post fifty feet up or so. She felt a twinge of sadness as she realized she had drove him to sit up on his own.

“I know everyone here has a story…and I feel as though you should not judge from past decisions but from current actions." She said with a kind smile as the wind whipped her hair around her.

She grabbed the railing with one hand nervously as the boat rocked. She had a rolling wave of fear that she pushed back.

"...but if you wish, on matters that involve you, I will keep my opinion to myself" Eris said, still smiling kindly, though it was sort of strained.

Kasumi parted her lips to speak but saw that Asad had left her room before she could even say anything. Her eyes rolled as she sighed softly and slumped down in her bed a little bit but jumped up when a crewman entered. "Oh, sorry, I was told to come and check on you." The crewman said as he leaned against the door. "Oh, I am fine, Kalen." Kasumi stated while waving him away as he nodded his head before departing but opened back up immediately. "Oh, I think the deck's on fire." Her eyes widened as she burst through the door, nearly killing the crewman.

She ran all the way up to the deck then shouted. "Eris, what the hell are you doing?!" The waves rocked harshly from side to side as she shouted. Her fists clenched as she stared at Eris then sniffed the air after the soft breeze blew through the deck of the boat. "Are you guys drinking?!" Her eyes fell immediately upon Asad as she stormed over towards him. "Just because you're a drunken mess, don't make everyone follow your ways." She sighed then raised her hand up to rub her temple. She felt like she was going to faint but held on to the railing of the boat.

"I am extremely disappointed in all of you already." Kasumi said harshly while placing her eyes on every single one of her so called mentors. She looked at them then walked towards the front of the boat, arms folded over her chest as she let out a huff. She didn't really want neither of them to talking to her right now but she knew at least one of them was going to try.

"Good grief."





It would seem the Avatar was not pleased with what the others had done, and took it upon herself to blame the rounin called Asad. The man, not quite drunk yet, gazed over at her as she stormed off. She was clearly peeved, but he was not one to just allow people to blame him for things that were not his fault. "Avatar Kasumi." He spoke out her name as he stood up. He gave Jin a pat on the shoulder and wavered in his first step. "Damn this boat... all boats... As if a hangover was not enough..." He mumbles this to himself upset and manages his way over to Kasumi. He stood at the rail of the boat nearest her, attempting to hold in his breakfast as he could now see the waters knocking against the boat below him. "Ugh... I'm almost looking forward to being in the Earth Kingdom at this rate." Hopefully that joke would help lighten her mood a bit.

"Avatar Kasumi. You must understand. I was just taking a sip to help my hangover. Everyone else was right there. Offering them a drink was the only polite option. I refuse to be like a king who feasts in front of the poor, if you will accept that analogy. I did not expect her to be so weak to the liquor." Though it was strong stuff. Had his head been more clear, he probably would have noticed that. Jin seemed to handle it well enough, so he made a note that this was someone he could share with for certain in the future. "I did not force anyone to drink, or even pressure anyone. That is not my way. I apologize for any problems it has created. I will look after the Chi Blocker until she sobers up."

Before waiting for an answer from the probably still-agitated Avatar, he made his way back to the crate and took a small sip from his gourd again. His eyes strayed between the Chi Blocker, the planks that made up the deck, and his own gourd. "The Avatar is not too happy with me, I think. Groups are weird. I am much too accustomed to being a loner." He says this to Jin before letting out a bellowing laugh as though he had said the funniest joke in the world. He was much more animated in this moment than he had been the entire time. After settling, he let out a quick breath and tapped the bottom of the gourd to Jin as he passed it off. "Sip small. It is strong stuff. I am sure you felt that burn from before... It's the second-strongest stuff I have."

Eris Kiyoko

"Eris, what the hell are you doing?!" Avatar Kasumi yelled as she stormed over to her. Eris was in shock for a moment then she felt fury take over. What was SHE doing? Trying to avoid a fight and make peace between the group. She was trying to keep the group from falling apart before it even started… trying to make sure the Avatar even had a group to learn from…and apparently yell at as she pleased! The fire in her hands leapt to a new high as she felt her anger rise.

Eris watched Avatar Kasumi lay into the others who were drinking then walk away. Eris took a few deep breaths, trying to calm herself but felt it failing. She had been very patient and calm with everyone for the past hour or so but she was getting fed up with the childishness that seemed to surround her. She had expected more from the Avatar.

“Are you kidding me?!” She bit out as she squelched the fire in her hand and started after the avatar, ready to give the girl a piece of her mind. Eris could care less that she was the avatar, she could at least show some respect to the lot of them…even if they where being drunken fools.

Eris stopped short as she noticed Asad had beaten her to Avatar Kasumi. She considered going over there anyways but felt she did not want a show for what she had to say to the girl.

Eris sighed and turned to go back to the far railing of the boat knowing that it was for the best. She didn’t want to be kicked out of the group because she had a short temper…and it was best to have conversations like the one she had in mind in a calm state of being.

Eris reached the railing and felt a little calmer. She supposed the damage to the boat was a viable reason to be upset though she did not agree with the way the girl handled it. The Avatar was supposed to be the center of calm and balance…it was obvious the Avatar had a ways to go.

Eris shook her head and looked out to sea. The rolling waves made her a little sick to her stomach and she wished she could just be shown to her room so she could sleep off her nausea and irritation. She hoped they reached land soon and she hoped the group found its footing together , so to speak, soon.

“It is sad to see people have become so jaded and cynical. We are all comrades now, and if we do not have trust, we do not have anything. I know everyone here has a story…and I feel as though you should not judge from past decisions but from current actions."

Xue nodded, her eyes flickering from Eris' face, to Keirin, and finally resting on the water that was becoming more turbulent as the night wore on. She mirrored Eris' movement to grab the railing when the boat rocked with a more persistent wave. Though Xue didn't have much experience with boats, apart from the few times that she had used smuggling vessels to sneak into island villages as night with her purging party, she wasn't one to get seasick and was doing better than others.

Eris spoke again, and Xue turned her attention back to the fire bender's somewhat forced smile, "...but if you wish, on matters that involve you, I will keep my opinion to myself"

Xue chuckled and responded with a small smile, "Well, I can't keep you from expressing your opinions. But I just... ah, I don't know, I guess I just don't want any sympathy and that's what it feels like." She shrugged and sent a glance up towards Keirin again. Despite his words, Xue did appreciate his honesty and she understood what he was saying. She felt a twinge in her heart like she should call him down but decided against it.

A shout turned her attention back to the deck and she saw a fuming Avatar Kasumi standing with her fists clenched at her sides. She yelled at Eris before turning her fury towards Asad. Xue grabbed the railing once more as the waves rocked the boat violently in response to Kasumi's outburst.

Xue kept herself quiet during the ordeal though she wanted to defend herself against the accusations. She knew if she stepped out of hand the tables could be turned quite rapidly due to her past as a chi blocker. There was no use in directing more distrust and suspicion towards herself over a misunderstanding.

Asad quickly took control of the situation and attempted to explain what was going on to the angry Avatar. His explanation was calm and well put, though Xue was confused about which female he was apologizing for who was so 'weak to the liquor'. Kasumi had yelled at Eris who hadn't had anything to drink, and Xue herself had only had a sip and the side effects were very minor. Asad somewhat cleared it up when he said that he would 'look after the chi blocker' and Xue's cheeks reddened with the realization. "I didn't do anything," she complained under her breath, but didn't openly protest to what Asad was saying, hoping only for a quick resolution.

Xue turned her eyes to Eris who had looked furious in response to being yelled at, but was slowly calming down as she returned to the railing of the ship. The silence was awkward between them and Xue considered walking back to Jin and Asad. Instead, she decided that if Eris wanted to be alone, she would tell her. Xue sighed and rested her chin against her arms on the railing. She opened her mouth to speak when Jin rose and began to talk. She turned around, leaning her back against the rail and put on her best poker face while she listened.

Half of his words she couldn't hear over the water, but she could catch his meaning and, despite her best attempts to keep it down, she couldn't help but smile a bit when he mentioned trusting her. Xue listened to the rest of the speech silently, and then watched with mild curiosity as Jin embedded daggers blade-up in the planks of the ship and then began tight roping above them. It wasn't until just before he began his descent that it clicked in Xue's mind what Jin's intentions were. She tensed, knowing that she was too far away to do anything to help, and watched silently to see what would happen.

Keirin sat on the mast as he listened to the crashing waves. It was calming and he realized that he should hop down sometime soon. As soon as he thought that, he heard some sort of yell. He opened his eyes and saw Kasumi yelling at the others, it seemed like it was directed at Asad and Eris. From the looks of it, he had missed Eris burning part of the deck.

As he saw them being yelled at, he felt responsible for this. If he had not opened his mouth, none of the events that just happened would have occurred. He had decided that he was going to jump down, when he suddenly saw Avatar Kasumi walk over to the railing in a huff. He decided that was his chance to talk, but before he jumped down, he saw Asad and Eris both walking over. Asad beat Eris and a good thing because it looked like a fight would've broken out if Eris had made it first. It seemed like Asad had calmed Avatar Kasumi down quite a bit. He watched as Asad had walked back and it seemed like Jin had started to make a large speech.

He watched Jin, trying to make out what he was saying. Then when he could tell he was talking to him, he listened even more intently. It seemed like Jin was telling him he could come down when he was ready. He felt anger growing inside him but he subsided it because he thought Jin was trying to make an effort to be nice to him. Then he watched as Jin put some daggers face-up in the deck. What is he planning? Then he saw him walk in front of them and act like he was going to fall onto them. WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING?!?!

Keirin jumped down onto the deck, ready to use his bending to catch him. He saw Avatar Kasumi standing in front of him, but he had no idea if she might freeze up and not catch him, so he was there for support just in case. He got ready to use his bending to increase his speed to catch Jin.

She was fuming but then came to realize that she wasn't really mad at neither one of them but at the fact the Chi Blockers are a rising force that deems themselves as unstoppable. Her eyes cut towards Asad as he came over to speak towards her. A sly smirk played across her lips as she could have a little fun with this but it was a little too late. She unpressed to talk but Asad had walked away and she raised a brow. Why don't he stay for her respond? She shrugged her shoulders then continued to stare out into the distance. Kasumi turned heel so that she can watch Jin as he spoke.

His words were so moving that she wanted to cry but held in her tears. She then raised a brow when he asked her did she trust him. She trusted all of her mentors - Even the Chi Blocker she trusted. She was lowered her head when Jin asked her that then looked back up at him. "Well, ye..." She watched as he lined up six knifes. Her hands went up to her temples as she thinks that the boat is going to sink. Her eyes widened when she saw Jin walking along the railing then fall backwards. Kasumi gasped as she opened her canteen then bended enough water out to make a bubble as she focused on her inner Chi.

Kasumi pushed the bubbled just in time to catch Jin. She lowered the bubble then dropped it as it drenched Jin. "Does that answer your question?" She asked him with her arms folded and another raised brow. Her eyes went over towards Keirin. "No need to use your Airbending. You were too late anyway." She spoke towards him then walked over towards Jin, extending her hand to help him up.

Kalen ran onto the deck as she looked at him. "Avatar Kasumi. We are nearing towards the Earth Kingdom so be ready." Kasumi nodded towards him then waved for him to come over. "Show Jin his room so that he can put on some dry clothing please." Kalen nodded and did what he was told as she walked over towards her other mentors. "I just received word that we are nearing the Earth Kingdom. If you guys need to freshen up, let me know and I can get Kalen to show you guys where you can do that at." She nodded once then turned heel, walking while basically hugging herself as she sighed.

Her blue eyes looked up as she seen the gates that lead into the Earth Kingdom up ahead.

"Home sweet home. How long has it been..?"





Jin certainly was one to go the whole nine yards to make a point. Asad liked that about him. This situation made it feel as if Jin was someone to actually trust. He at the very least seemed friendly enough to share a drink with, which in itself felt just as important to Asad.

For the others, arriving in the Earth Kingdom had to be exciting. To explore or return to such a strong and culture-rich kingdom certainly was something to look forward to. But in this land, Asad Boder was a nationally-recognized criminal. Wanted for the murder of a man he was to protect. For anyone who knew, it was understandable that he would not be so excited to return home. "I do believe that I will need to... freshen up." The tall, tanned man would seek out his room as well. To his surprise, what little he had in the way of belongings were already in there and neatly placed on the well-made bed. It was looking at this that he tried, unsuccessfuly, to remember the last time he had slept in a real bed. Shaking his head, he got to work.

His mid-chest to mid-stomach became covered in white bandages to hide away his scarring from plain site. Reaching up to his left arm he would carefully remove his blue pauldron and place it on the bed. It would be there when they were done in the Earth Kingdom, but his arm felt uncomfortably light without it. Next he would bring his fingers to the tie that kept his hair up in a plume. Hesitantly, as if making a life-changing decision, he eventually untied it and let his brown hair fall straight. It was long enough to nearly touch his waistline. "It... certainly has been a long time since I have tended to my hair. Will I ever again have the luxury?" He questions himself before finding the straw jingasa hat that he would put upon his head. The wide hat would help to hide some of his facial features, the large collar on his shawl would to the rest. With this simple disguise, he would easily be able to toss aside his identity as the Drunken Golem and appear as nothing more than a ragged traveler. He would take a moment to stare at the pauldron he had discarded before forcing himself to turn around and leave the room with a sip of his gourd.

He eventually returned to the deck in his new attire and gave a look on the deck. He did not say anything to anyone, not having anything to say for a moment until he turned to Kasumi. "Avatar. I am ready. When everyone else is ready, I do hope you will honor our agreement." He hung around long enough for a short response before he would turn and head to the bow of the ship that was pointed directly at the land the Earthbender had once called home. The place that had once welcomed and revered him. And he would be lying if he were to say that he was not feeling a sense of anxiety.

Xue released a sigh of relief when Avatar Kasumi caught Jin through water bending. She didn’t think that Jin would have fallen to his death if Kasumi hadn’t caught him, what with the other benders at the ready, but she still had to wait a few moments for her heartbeat to settle a bit. Xue swallowed a bit of anger down at Jin for his reckless move nonetheless and turned her head back towards the water and to her surprise, Xue could see land in the very distance. She turned back to the group, opening her mouth to tell them, when she saw that a crewman was speaking to Kasumi and when he finished, she announced what Xue had already discovered for herself.

"I just received word that we are nearing the Earth Kingdom. If you guys need to freshen up, let me know and I can get Kalen to show you guys where you can do that at."

Xue paled, she knew that they had been heading towards the Earth Kingdom, but the sudden realness of it all was finally catching up.

She was going back.

She turned and followed a crewman to her assigned quarters to do as Kasumi said and 'freshen up', her heart hammering in her chest. The Earth Kingdom was where she did the majority of her 'purges' with the chi-blockers. If she was going to be recognized anywhere, it would be there. She considered her clothing options carefully. She had bought clothing for each of the respective nations with her, but she decided that it would only serve to make her stand out more if she wore garb from any other nation, Xue would blend in more in Earth Kingdom clothes. With her mind made, she replaced her tight bun for a loose up-do held up by a black comb, and simple traveling clothes.

When she was done fussing over her appearance, Xue took a few calming breaths and left the cabin to join up with the others. Asad and Eris had returned in different clothing as well. Eris looked like she was heading for war in her Fire Nation armor, and Xue wondered why she hadn't dressed herself in something more... practical. Looking at Asad, Xue could sense a discomfort about him, and she couldn't help but notice that he appeared to be trying to disguise himself as well. She felt an odd security in the fact that she wasn't the only one anxious about their destination and found herself silently gravitating toward him. As she stood by the earth bender, she wondered what the implications would be if someone were to recognize her.

OOC: Sorry this post is so bad, I couldn't think of what to write //orz

Kasumi didn't really need to get freshened up because the people of the Earth Nation seen her even in her worst days. Her eyes rolled over towards Eris as she had freshened up and made it to the deck. She huffed then gasped when Asad came up to her, making sure she still agreed to their deal. Kasumi nodded her head then whispered to him. "As long as you don't do anything stupid." Kalen lowered the stairs and brought out Kowai for Kasumi. She mounted him then looked down at her mentors. "Do anything to make me look stupid and I will leave you guys here. Got it?" She turned her head ahead of her while whipping the reigns and Kowai began his trek towards the Earth Nation's gates.

As soon as she edged near the gates, the gatekeeper saw her and instantly recognized her. "Avatar Kasumi. It's a pleasure to see you again." Her bowed with respect then glanced at her mentors. "Friends of yours?" The gatekeeper asked her as she nodded her head. "Yes, they are. May we go in or are you just going to keep us waiting?" She asked politely as he apologized and opened up the gates, extending his arm forward. "Welcome to the Earth Kingdom." As she proceeded inside with her mentors, her head nodded towards Asad, giving him the okay to go and do whatever he needed to do.

She lifted herself off of Kowai and slid down off of him. The Earth Nation was a little bit different now after seven years. She walked till she found some kids practicing Earthbending. She was impressed with their technique as she bit her bottom lip, a little worried about Asad. She had to stop but that would ruin her loyalty, her promise. She was in a predicament she couldn't get out of and it was destroying her on the inside.

"So far, so good. Hopefully the Avatar's business will be swift."





On the boat, Asad had turned his head to notice that one of the group had begun hovering around him. As she would find herself closer to him, he would turn his head to give her a quick look-over. It was Xue, the Chi Blocker that was in the party. Chi Blockers were a threat to the modern world, but this woman was to join them in the party. And ironically, she was the one he felt he could trust more than any other. He was a wanted criminal, and she certainly would be if she was discovered to be a Chi Blocker. They were both innocent criminals. They shared a potential threat to their existence. Of course, she would not know that they shared such a danger, but Asad did. He turned his gaze away from her as he noticed that in Earth Kingdom clothing she seemed a bit more... visually appealing to him than she did in the Fire Nation attire. Clearing his throat and averting his eyes from her at all costs, he would speak. "Keep your eyes and ears open, Chi Blocker." He had never actually stopped to catch her name. "The Earth Kingdom is full of tough customers. Some that may even pose a threat to me... If you find yourself in a tough spot, seek me out." His eyes would remain forward and his mouth remain closed from that point as he followed the Avatar off the deck and onto land.

Once he had the okay to go and do his own thing, he gave a solemn nod to the Avatar. "I will be around the main town. I am going to ask around, for my quest. If you need me, feel free to interrupt me. My main obligation is your safety and training." With that, he gave a nod to the remaining members of the party and split off on his own. If anyone was following him from the group, he would certainly be aware but not bothered by it. He felt a bit bad that he had forced the Avatar into his own conflict. But at this point, traveling with the Avatar presented too many benefits to be ignored. He would honor his half of the agreement so long as she did.

He made his way into the nearest tavern and refilled his gourd, purchasing a much weaker drink as he would sit around. He would notice no one familiar in the dimly-lit drinkery. This was good in the sense that he may not be recognized, but also bad in that none of these men were the one he was pursuing. He would make his way around, asking people if they had seen a man that matched his description. However, no one seemed to have ever encountered anyone that looked like him. Asad would only groan and down more of the light drink. He had a feeling that this man, whomever he was, was still in the Earth Kingdom. There was no sign of him in the other parts of the world that he explored. And it would only be a matter of time until he found the man and brought him to justice. But the Earth Kingdom was massive and possibly the highest in terms of concentrated populations. Finding him so soon would have been too easy...

He felt relieved when he saw that Avatar Kasumi had caught Jin. He was ready to help, but he wasn't so sure that he would've been able to catch him. "No need to use your Airbending. You were too late anyway." He heard Avatar Kasumi say to him as he looked at the ground and realized that she was right. She's correct. I wouldn't have been able to catch Jin... Let alone get to him before he hit the floor. He sighed. He was thinking too rashly and decided that he might need a moment to himself to cool off a little before they reached the Earth Kingdom. As soon as he thought about it, Avatar Kasumi told them that they were approaching the Earth Kingdom. He sat down on the deck again. He closed his eyes and waited for them to reach the Earth Kingdom because he was already ready for their journey. He didn't need much, and he had a backpack on full of what he needed.

As they reached the Earth Kingdom, he stayed within the group, keeping his usual composure. When he saw small earth bending children, he stopped short and lost his state of mind. He didn't act all composed anymore. He smiled as he stared at Eris helping one of the earth bending children. He moved to the back of the group so he wouldn't be seen like this. Children were one of his only weaknesses. He couldn't help but smile at their innocence, it was just something that made him smile. Every time he would see a child, it was like he became an entirely new person. He really hated himself for doing that. He would become weak around children, where most people wold try to be a stronger person around children to show them how adult-like they were. Keirin knew he was different, but most of the time he was too ashamed by the thought of not being able to act with tact and pride around the tiny future generation. He watched Eris for a moment before he noticed the Avatar biting her bottom lip. What's she doing that for? He focused on her facial expression and he realized that her facial expression expressed an extreme amount of... guilt? No... That wasn't it... anxiety maybe? Worry? All he knew was the Avatar had an amount of emotional distress. Maybe I should talk to her... He walked over to her as he tried his hardest to conceal his smile, although he knew it wasn't working very well. He cleared his throat to get Avatar Kasumi's attention. Then he whispered to her. "Avatar Kasumi... Is... something worrying you? I realize that this might be a bad time, but I'm willing to talk if you are." He looked at the children and Eris as he awaited Avatar Kasumi's answer.
