Narration
Book One: Hidden



Legend tells of a time long ago, when Benders were in a majority and technology fell short of prehistoric. Some of these legends start with the simple musings of a person who would soon become one of those legendary heroes. Perhaps these are stories you have heard? One simply word is a key to these tales. This word is simply the "Avatar".

So, you have heard the stories? Good. This will make everything much more simple for all of us. The legend I am going to begin is about journeys of a young Avatar, still ignorant to the ways of the world. However, this story is much different. How? It is very simple, actually. This story is different from the others because it takes place in a world where the Avatar has been nothing more than the whispering of folklore and where bending is a scarce as flying lemurs.

I guess it would be best to start this legend off like the others, wouldn't it? Then, I shall.

Long ago, the Avatar was a symbol of hope and prosperity. That all changed when Avatar Hotaru passed away. The cycle was expected to begin again as it always had, but when no Avatar was born for several decades, the Order of the White Lotus decided that the time of the Avatar had come and passed. The world fell into disarray for many years until all four Nations banded together. They brought peace and prosperity to the dying world.

That was centuries ago. The world has long since become comfortable with the idea of no Avatar as the "bridge between the spirit world and the human world" was severed and drifted into myth. Benders eventually became scarce as well, the art of element control slowly fading into the distance. It was no one's fault and there was nothing anyone could do to stop it. However, the ancient Order of the White Lotus made a prophecy that the Avatar would be reborn into a new life when a time of war came to the world.

Sixteen years ago, that prophecy became a reality when a small baby named Asha Jin was born. She was taken to the White Lotus not long after being found bending water, earth, and air around her nursery. The members of the Order were overjoyed, but also very distressed. If the Avatar was alive and well, then that could only mean a terrible evil was brewing below the surface of the seemingly perfect world. After more than a decade and a half, that evil still has yet to manifest, until now...

She woke up to the smell of smoke. She dismissed it as a fire signal sent out to the cargo ships that always came on Friday. With little concern, she fell back asleep. Then, she vaguely remembers someone shaking her, yelling her name. In the distance is the sounds of roaring flames, metal clashing with metal, the occasional gunshot, and the screams. How perfectly she remembers the screams. She was stumbling out of bed, one hand wrapped around an emergency pack Miki had prepared for her months ago. the other around her glider. With a quick pace, she followed Miki out of the small house and into the facility's main courtyard. That was when Asha actually woke up.

She saw flames beyond the control of the Firebenders and devastation around every corner. Without a word, Miki gripped her wrist and led her to one of the other buildings. In her confused and terrified state, Asha could barely make out that it was the stables. Something light and feathery landed on her right shoulder and she glanced at it. Hotaru. It was nothing more than her dove. Miki started speaking rapidly. "You have to get to the Fire Nation. Fire Lord Ianzok will protect you."

Her words slowly sunk in and Asha suddenly stopped, blinking rapidly. "Protect me? From what?"

Miki glanced back at the young girl and smiled softly, "You are so young, Asha. You deserve a happy life, but the destiny of an Avatar is a grave one. You do understand that, don't you?"

Asha nodded, "Of course I do, but what's going on?"

The older woman started dragging Asha towards the stables once again. "They're calling themselves the Tsumi Ribasu. They are here to kill you, Asha. That's why you must leave."

Leave? Asha stared at her surrogate mother in disbelief. How could she leave the Facility? Miki? Daruka? Everything she had ever known? It wasn't long until they reached Asha's flying bison, Yun. The poor animal was obviously terrified. Asha let her instincts take over and started cooing to Yun, soothing her nerves. That was when she noticed the five people staring at her from the other side of Yun's pen. She stared back at them, but had to break her gaze when a loud explosion went off and she had to cover her face.

The stables began to fill with smoke, smothering Asha and the others. "Go!" Miki shouted over the roar of flames. "Hurry!"

Asha scrambled onto Yun, glancing back at Miki to see the old woman taking a defensive stance. She looked over at Asha and smiled softly, "Be careful, Asha! The others will protect you!"

A man stepped into the stables and Asha's eyes widened when she saw his mask. He walked calmly, as if nothing was happening in that moment. "Go!" Miki yelled.

The young girl nodded, "Yun, iku!"

The flying bison took off and out of the roofless stable, Asha's dove also taking flight. Asha looked down briefly to see Miki putting a relatively good fight. She was about to smile when there was a sudden flash of blue electricity. The old woman dropped to the ground as the man in the mask looked up. "Miki!" she screamed, leaning forward

She almost fell off Yun, but someone yanked her back, whispering something into her ear softly. She didn't hear them over the ringing ears while the Facility slowly faded into nothing but a plume of smoke. Asha blinked the years away from her eyes, curling into a ball on Yun's saddle. It was gone. Everything she loved was gone...

Sudhir was one of the first awake. He usually was, but this time there was a specific reason. He could be here a thousand years, and he'd never get used to the smell of burning. He got dressed, he'd never been able to go back to sleep once he was awake, even as a child. Then he remembered why he wasn't used to the scent of smoke, the smell didn't usually reach the Avatar's companions. He got to his now booted feet and opened his door slightly, to see through the window that flames were beginning to lick at the next building. He walked towards the window to yell at whatever firebender thought it was a good idea to practice this close to buildings, but he was stopped by the sight of masked faces and an unidentifiable ball of flame being tossed through the window. The Facility was under attack?!

He turned around and ran back down the hallway, thumping his fist against each door he passed.
"Hey! Get up! The Facility's under attack!" He yelled. Job one was getting the other companions up and moving as fast as possible, then finding the Avatar and getting out of here. He waited only long enough that he was certain they were all up, before he started running out of the building. It briefly occurred to him that he wasn't actually sure where Avatar Asha usually slept, but he spotted some familiar shapes out of the corner of his eye. Other White Lotus members fighting, and Avatar Asha being led across the courtyard towards the stables.

He ran to reach the stables as well, and hopped over the fence of the Flying Bison's pen. That was the first time he got a good look at the Avatar. Somehow, she struck him as shorter than he expected, but the thought was interrupted by the sharp crack of an explosion, and Miki telling the Avatar to hurry. The stable was filling with smoke, and Sudhir understood that if they wanted to make it, they had to leave now. However, he stopped before he got on the Bison, and cupped his hands to give a boost to those who needed it. He also counted out who was getting on ahead of him while doing this, making sure they were all there. He was the last to get on.

He followed the Avatar's gaze and watched Miki fall. He gritted his teeth on a curse, especially at the Avatar's anguished scream. For a moment, he was frightened the dark-haired girl would fall from the Bison, and he grabbed the back of her shirt and tugged her into a less precarious position. However, he didn't say anything, just pulled her back and handed her off to someone, anyone else, someone who was better at comforting people than he was. Once he had done another headcount, he sighed and looked over at the Bison's head.
"I hope you know which way to go." He said to the creature.

She was walking through what some would consider a nightmare, her feet crunching across broken house and blown up pavement. "Why are you doing this?" The man in a White Lotus uniform cowered in defeat on a pile of ruin. A slow smile crept across her delicate red lips as she removed her gloves, licking them in anticipation and excitement. "Because," she tucked her gloves into her belt so as not to get them dirty, or maybe it was for dramatic affect. "You don't deserve to be saved!" With a jump and movement of her arms a whirlwind passed through them, picking up the sharpest objects it could find and slicing through the man like scissors on paper. The sickening crack of his bones, the wonderful sound of his skin ripping and the blood, so much blood; it was exhilarating. With her same quiet smile, Manaka replaced her gloves back on her hands and turned around, boots crunching once more on broken glass and crushed dreams.

A whistle went past her ear and quickly, she stopped the flood of bullets that was about to pepper her body like rice bags through a corn hole. She could feel the pressure around her drop, Manaka's ears popping as she formed a shield of constant moving air so as not to get hit by a metal ball. Manaka picked up her pace, her purple coat flapping around her as she danced across the grounds of the facility that she used to guard.

"None of you deserve to be saved."

It was fabulous really to watch her once allies burn, the sound of their screams was music to her ears. Manaka stepped through the frame of what once could have been a door, or possibly a wall, it didn't matter now though. Shoes still on despite the strict rule of no footwear in the house (how wonderful it felt to commit the smallest of infractions!) Manaka put her air shield down and picked an arrow out of her quiver, loading it into the bow so as not to alert anyone of her presence. On silent feet she crept across the corridor to the main room where she discovered two already dead. "Oh come on," Manaka quietly whined. "You couldn't leave any for me?" She huffed and continued on in silence, doing a three sixty to make sure that there was nothing behind her. In a dark hallway she heard the sound of breathing and cocked her head to the side before throwing open a broken door to find a woman huddled in the corner like the cowering man she had killed earlier. With a hunters instinct she let the arrow fly, watching as it sunk into the Lotus member's throat.

A child flew out from another room, hardly ten years old with beautiful blond hair and piercing green eyes. "You killed her!" The boy screamed, hugging the woman who most likely had been his mother. Unleashing another arrow, the boy fell just as quickly as he entered. With a rock in her stomach, Manaka stepped forward and gazed into his startling green eyes that would never see again. He was too young to die, but her survival was detrimental. With that kill her need to demolish dissipated and Manaka fell against the bamboo wall herself, feeling out of breath. "What have I done?" She asked no one as the realization sunk in. "What have I become?" It didn't matter though, because for the Leader Manaka would kill until she was the last person on earth.

Character Portrait: Aonani

Aonani

Aonani was awake early in the morning. He couldn’t stand sleeping in when he had plans. His head began coming up with crazy ideas as to what he could possibly miss. Today, he was heading down to the town to compete in what was going to be a championship, at least for a little bit. He wondered if there would be any new benders there to go against.

As Nani walked to the washroom, he ran his hands through his red hair that was pulled back at the moment. He really wasn’t nervous about competing, he was excited. There were always ideas to get from people and recently, there haven’t been many. The city was what he saw everyday unless he traveled and though he traveled often, sometimes with his father, sometimes alone.

Nani splashed water on his face and untied his hair as he looked in the mirror. The light yellow tips of his hair made him consider how he was going to put it up for the competition. Maybe he wouldn’t put it up. It would probably get dirty, but hey, he could always put it up after the first round.

He was in the championship. After a week of bending and competing, Nani had made it to the championship and was facing some earthbender from the colonies. Maybe the guy knew his cousin, Nani hoped he didn’t.

Nani left the washroom, changing into what he would wear throughout the palace halls. He would strip the outer, armor layer right before he left, stowing it into a closet, then slip on a cloak and go down to town. It was a simple enough plan that usually almost always worked except on holidays, which he didn’t bother leaving the palace during anymore.

As Nani crept down the hall, trying his best to avoid his butler, Nani saw the family portrait and paused. His father, mother, and he were all sitting, he was a tiny baby. Nani smiled slightly as he ducked his head and kept walking.

Nani took off his armor, leaving a note for his father with one of the servants before taking off anything that might show him to be someone other than a regular citizen, grabbed his cloak, and took off towards the wall that he would climb to head to town.

It wasn’t that his father was super strict; it was his butler who also took it upon his older self to act like a nanny to a seventeen year old prince who knew how to not get hurt. As Nani walked, he took his hood down. For some reason, not everyone knew who he was. It wasn’t like the prince was famous to the people; they just didn’t see his face enough to recognize him on the streets. People at the fighting place didn’t even know his full name, everyone just called him Nani.

Nani took out the roll of bandages he kept in his bag for whenever he competed. Normally, he wouldn’t cover it up, but the burn on his shoulder was something that he hated, and it gave him away. Everyone had heard of the prince that had uncovered his cousin’s murderous intent and added that he had gotten injured in the process though the scar was older than that fiasco. People liked to stretch stories and even if Nani wanted to get rid of them, nobody would believe him without an explanation, and even then people were reluctant.

Nani smiled out at the nearby lake. The arena was right next to one of the many in the capital city. He paused at the market which was opening only then. He spotted a food stall and approached, paying for an apple and taking a bite. He then saw some kids nearby as they broke out a ball and passed it to each other with their feet. Nani, having plenty of time before the championship, stole the ball, joining the game in an instant as the children recognize Nani and play with him. The youngest, a little boy named Hiroki, was really good at the game and always talked or waved as Nani passed.

Nearly a half hour later Nani heads to the arena. He made his way back to the rooms for fighters and took his place in a room that was set up for him. It was small, but because of his constant coming and acts, the owner of the fighting place gave him a room, that and seeing the scar and understanding.

Nani changed, staring at the scar that just barely reached over his shoulder. He sighed softly before beginning to wrap it up. This wasn’t like those the pro-bending tournaments that were held in capital city, but a small tournament like what the old earth bending general lady or whatever fought in. Her name was Toph Beifong and she was said to have worked with one of the avatars.

Nani looked at the time and smiled, he was always on time to fights, and it probably would drive his father insane if he knew that considering he was late to even his birthday celebration. He still didn't know how that worked itself out...

Nani paused in his wrapping. He wondered if there really was an avatar. They were always told there was though everyone thought it was a legend because there was peace and who would need an avatar at a time of peace?

Nani shook his head. He knew better than to think like that. His father believed in the avatar, dead or alive, yet Nani wasn’t sure.

Taking a deep breath, Nani finishes the wraps and begins to shakeout his arms. He needed to get warmed up, get ready. He was excited, that was for sure, but he didn’t know how it would go. There were simple rules, a lot like tournament play, but there weren’t teams. It was individual against individual.

Nani heard his name called and stepped from the small room into the light. Cheers erupted from the crowd that had gathered for the midday tournament championship. Nani waved at people as he walked out, winking at the kids that he had played with earlier who had seats high up in the stands. He wasn’t sure if they saw it until Hiroki waved back.

Nani looks at his opponent and furrows his brow. Why was he facing this guy? He looked to be Nani’s age, but definitely not used to losing.

”Nani, that’s a rather feminine name isn’t it?” Nani smiled at the guys attempt to unsettle or embarrass him. Not the first time his name was called girly.

Nani shakes his head as he pushes off the shoulder thing he wore, just as a traditional thing. He was told it belonged to some relative. ”Nah, my dad gave me that name and let me tell you, he is definitely in a better position that you are my friend,” Nani says with another wink as he walks forward.

The guy looked somewhat unsettled, his blonde hair in his eyes. Nani reached up and pulled his hair back, tying it up to avoid the mistake he saw coming.

The crowd was cheering at what Nani said though they had no clue what Nani’s dad did. Ruling a fire nation could be considered a pretty good job to most people.

The bell rang and the other fellow sprang forward. Nani shook his head inwardly as he lost his smile and ducked under the coming wave of fire. Nani lit his hands and sent a wave at the fellow who did went over the wave with a smile that made Nani think the fight wasn’t fair. How was he going to make this guy not feel bad?

Nani loved the fighting here. The cool floor was nice and he enjoyed the feel against his bare feet. The other guy wasn’t wearing a shirt either like the tournament suggests though his upper body was covered in tattoos.

Nani dodged another attack before rolling to avoid yet another, coming up on one knee to fire back at the man. He gets a roar of approval as he stands by doing a flip which allowed him to fire at the fellow sending him back a few steps. The rest of the fight went by quickly with the other guy on the ground.

Nani, declared the winner, waves at the crowd and nods at the other fellow as he walks back to his room. The tournament owner approaches the man with a small bag and hands it to him, the guy staring at the back of Nani’s head as he walks to the room. It was only half of Nani's earnings. Nani needed the other half for something, that he couldn't quite remember at the moment.

He didn’t really feel like changing and moved to slip on his vest and boots. Grabbing the undershirt, he threw it over his arm as he walked out of the room and headed back towards the palace. It was hot out and he certainly didn’t want to wear the long sleeves he had brought.

A second later, Nani remembered he was supposed to pick up flowers. He would lay them down at his old masters and mothers grave which were both on palace grounds. Changing course, Nani began the other way, smiling as he realized that was why he only wanted half his earnings for the day. He didn't want the fire nation accountant to wonder why money was being spent in town often, so he used his own.

'Ugh, what a racket...' With an annoyed grunt the girl rolled over on her side, she was an early riser but -this- was a little ridiculous. As the distinct smell of smoke met her nose however she slowly sat up with a yawn and scratched her head. "Ugh... Who in the world is playing with fire at this hour?..." Her monologue was promptly interrupted as her ears twitched at the sound of footfalls down the hallway outside her door, someone was running by and as they reached her door knocked with some respectable force, shouting "Hey! Get up! The Facility's under attack!" before moving on and repeating this at the other doors.

What she heard took a moment to set in. She blinked, 'Attack?...' And with a sudden burst of energy and adrenaline the covers of her bed were tossed aside as she leapt to her feet and quickly got dressed and burst out from her door just in time to catch the back of whoever had knocked's head. Like a rocket she took off down the hall in a sprint to try and catch up, or at the very least keep her eye on him to follow.

Apparently their destination was the stables. Her eyes wandered as she ran, taking in the destruction and chaos all around her. It was surreal to see this place she had been for so long transform so suddenly and terribly right before her eyes. 'How many innocent and good people died here tonight already?' Teeth gritting and fists clenching, Aki tried to push aside the anger that welled up inside her, she didn't know who had done this but it was certain that she was now determined to make them pay. But that was for another time, right now, the Avatar was priority number one.

As she finally arrived at the stables and quickly glanced around, she gave a brief flinch at the sight of the large flying bison, she was never comfortable around these things. With a quick shake of her head Aki refocused herself at the matter at hand, her gaze now shifting over to who she could only assume to be the Avatar. A pretty and scared looking girl, a very real looking person, not the thing that fits the mental image most have of a legendary 'Avatar', but then again reality rarely measures up to legend. Her frivolous line of thought was promptly interrupted by an ear splitting explosion followed by the woman Miki shouting to them to leave.

With only a silent nod Aki approached the bison after the Avatar had gotten on herself, the boy she was following knelt down to offer some assistance up. Giving a small wave of her hand to perhaps say 'thanks but I got it' she took a quick breath and mounted up on the beast, grimacing slightly but shaking it off. It wasn't long after that the four others had arrived and everyone was ready to go, and as the beast took off into the air Aki's grip tightened, she wasn't bad with heights or anything but she simply couldn't trust the creature not to fall.

The Avatar screamed, Aki didn't want to look back, she knew all too well what she would find and it was nothing good. The boy she had been following early pulled the Avatar back to a more seated position before passing her off in Aki's direction. Looking more than a little uncertain she gently placed a hand on the crying girl's shoulder and closed her eyes, speaking softly in her direction, "It's... Gonna be alright. We're all here for you..." She wasn't sure if what she said was heard, and in the end maybe she said just as much for herself as she had said it for the Avatar's sake, but nonetheless, Aki leaned back and simply let the girl curl up and cry before her.

With her gaze turning skyward she wondered just what was in store for them... This was the beginning of something big. This was the day that all of Aki's efforts had been for, and she was certain of only one thing, nothing in her life from this point on would be the same.

Neige woke up to the sound of someone banging on the door to his bedroom, and the putrid smell of smoke in the air. He coughed as he sat up, and heard someone shouting through the door. "Hey! Get up! The Facility's under attack!". 'Wait.. Under attack!? How could that be!?' He immediately threw the covers off of him and leaped out of his bed. He quickly got dressed and reached into his wardrobe to grab his water flask, his blue long coat and his map, as they were the only things worth saving and rushed out of the room. Neige heard the sadly familiar sounds of screams and the ringing sound of bullets being fired off. As he was running through the hallways of The White Lotus.

He didn't see any of the others leave their room, and he assumed that they were already awake. There were either injured or dead bodies littering the hallways and he did his best to avoid stepping on them. It wasn't the easiest thing to do considering all the smoke that was burning his eyes and making him cough. He tried not to breathe it in but there was so much of it in the air that it wasn't almost impossible not to.

He hoped that at least the Avatar was safe from all of this chaos, and considering her importance she would probably be the one that the The Order would try to get to safety first. He heard, the ear splitting sound of the wooden supports snapping in half like twigs and crashing onto the floor. The fires began to spread faster as the foundations of the building began to fall and forced Neige to pick up his speed. He thought about just how many people had died before he woke up and curse himself for not noticing earlier.

While trying to make his way to the Bison stables he also tried to help put out the flames licking at the wooden floors and walls of the building with the water from his flask. Neige tried his best to help those who were being attacked by the invaders while also quickly making his way to the stables, even then he couldn't do much. He had froze one of the invaders to the ground getting one of the children to safety, then quickly running off again towards the stables. He hopped on the Bison as the other men came into the stables. As he watched as Miki get struck down by lighting in the stables, he cursed silently under his breath and pulled out his map.

This was the first time that he had actually gotten a decent look at the Avatar, and he was surprised that she looks rather normal for an Avatar. He was always taught that the Avatar was the bridge between the his world and the spiritual world so it had lead him to think of the Avatar as some kind of god to be honest. It wasn't that he was disappointed, just extremely surprised at how casual she looked. This was also the first time that Neige had actually rode a Bison and he was quite scared of being this high up in the air.

"I suppose that we do know where we're heading yes? We should try to get as far as possible before we stop to rest. It wouldn't be safe to stay in one place for too long." He said as he looked at his map. "Also, is anyone wounded or injured in any way?" He asked as he continued to gaze as his map. Trying to see what would be the best place for them to go. "It wouldn't be ideal to continue flying if one of us were injured...

"In and out. In and out. Peace and... serenity."

The young girl softly told herself as she could feel the heat of the candles around her go up and down all at once. The candles being the only light she had in her otherwise pitch dark room. Unlike most people in the faculty, Furi never slept more than a couple of hours. If she slept anymore she would get a pounding headache that did nothing to help her control. She continued to breath in and out softly as Furi stood completely still with her legs crossed and her arms held up in the regular meditation pose. She peeked through one of her eyes to see the photo of her family still leaning against on of the candle holders. She smirked a bit before closing her eye again and return to her usual concentration.

That is... until there was a loud banging on her door. She didn't even hear what the person had said as the flames went up a little too high before being completely put out without Furi having to touch them. She huffed as as reached for the photo and tucked it away in the pocket of her jacket. She didn't hear what the person banging against her door said before running off but, she was able to smell the smoke coming through the bottom of her door. "What the?" She said softly as she rushed to see what was going on. And once she opened the door she finally registered what was happening. She rushed for her bag that held all the information on her family and skills and attacks she was in the middle of learning before rushing out of the door. She didn't pay attention on all of the dead and injured bodies scattered around the halls as she rushed to make sure the other companions were all awake and protecting the Avatar.

She had one of her daggers out as she clutched on to it just in case she was having to use it. Sure, she could use her bending but, she liked a challenge. Even if using her daggers against a real opponent wasn't a challenge it was much more fun than just burning them to a crisp. She followed the mysterious person as they turned. With every turn, it became more obvious where they wanted the avatar and companions to go in order to escape.

"The stables." She picked up the pace just to have one of the beams break under the pressure, making the slender girl having to jump in order to prevent herself from being buried under the burning debris as she hurried towards the stables just to see all of the other companions and the avatar. She could see the bison about to take off, so she ran towards and grabbed the back of the bison and held on with a tight grip. She tossed her bag up before pulling herself up to the others and looking towards the other.

They all seemed a bit shaken up about what was happening around them. She turned towards where everyone else was looking and watched as lightning struck down hitting Miki. She closed her eyes just as the blue lightning hit her and cleared her throat as she opened her eyes. And when she opened her eyes she watched as a small girl almost fell off of the flying animal. She put her arm over where she was about to fall, making it easier for someone to pull her back into the seat.

She looked towards the avatar and she seemed like a little girl, this... this was the person Furi had envied and feared. Sure, she respected her and would protect her if need be but, she didn't seem like she was even close to knowing the first thing about being the Avatar. She turned her cold green eyes towards Neige who was wondering if they knew where they were going. Furi had a few ideas but, she just shrugged before crossing her legs and closed her eyes in order to calm herself down. She may have seemed calm on the outside but on the inside, her heart was pounding, her anxiety was acting up and all of the fire and lightning reminded her of the night she brought harm to her foster family. A day she hated to remember.

He felt like laughing. A joyous chuckle bubbled up in his throat, but he forced it down. People did not react very positively to a leader that laughs during an invasion. And he was a leader; the Leader, in fact. The last time his true name had been uttered was the moment he had said goodbye to his wife for the last time. The chances of his name ever being spoken again were slim. He didn't mind all that much though. A name was only a name, it held no significance. In truth, the Leader was much more fitting for himself than the name his "parents" had gave him.

With a sort of swaying step, the Leader walked through the destroyed outer wall. His less than notable forces had done well, for the time being. If the Avatar was not returned to him, there would be hell to pay. An execution perhaps? He had to show his followers every once in awhile who was truly in charge; and it wasn't them. He held his dagger tightly, slicing through the supposedly trained White Lotus guards with a precision that rivaled that of most other men. He forces raced through, most of them with a glimmer of bloodlust in their eyes. Meanwhile, the Leader looked around.

Most would expect that he was searching for a sneak attack, someone that would try to use the element of surprise against the strange black-haired man with a mask covering his face. No, the Leader was searching among the crowd for those worthy of being saved. He didn't expect to find anyone in such a sin-filled place, but children were the easiest to manipulate, and just as easy to train.

The majority of the other Tsumi Ribasu also wore masks, minus a few that did not care if their secrets were revealed. However, their masks were blank and white. Cold featureless canvases that disguised a person's true intentions. The Leader's mask had a jagged zigzag crossing from his forehead, through the right eye, and down to his cheek; and it a had a red line that looked like a smirk of some sorts. It was fitting, he was smirking under his mask at that exact moment.

His eye caught the movement of an old woman and a girl running. He followed them because he had saw a few others run in that same direction. Perhaps this was the Avatar his spy had told him all about?

He entered the room to see the woman ushering the young girl towards a large flying bison. Amusement flashed through him when he thought they would escape. The bison took off at the girl's simple words. The Leader was about to stop them when the woman surprised him by lashing out with a tendril of water. His smirk dropped momentarily as he dodged before slowly covering his hidden face again. He placed a hand against the water, sending electric shock waves through the water. The woman dropped like a rock. The Leader looked up slowly, more for dramatic effect than anything, and watched as the Avatar girl drifted off. With a small huff of annoyance, he turned on his heel and left the woman's body, muttering something under his breath.

For a few minutes, he just wandered around. His eyes watched the destruction around him and he once again felt the need to laugh. He had failed in one of his objectives, but seeing the faces of the men that had ruined his life time and time again gave him the most lighthearted of feelings. Being the eccentric man, he spread out his arms wide, letting the ocean breeze rush over him. And he laughed.

Shang looked down at the bloodied sword in his hand. He hated the fights that resulted with blood. He could have just used whatever power he had to kill many people around him, but he couldn't control it and it would be pointless. Shang instead used his sword though he hated the red on it. He hadn't killed anyone yet, just injured them, then locked them in a room somewhere. He wondered where some of the others were since he hadn't seen them, or the avatar quite yet.

The others might be steering clear of him because of his father, but that wasn't his fault, and he was doing fine without them. He wore a white mask, with blue streaks on his cheekbones that ended middway under the eye. It looked faintly like his fathers though not enough that it was a big deal to him.

Dodging another attack, a white lotus member's white robes grew red as Shang cut his leg, crippling the man's attack. He shoved the man against the wall, his head hitting the wall, then took off running. He wasn't going to kill the guy and it would certainly look like he was dead.

He looked up from a corpse on the ground in time to see his father laughing. Looking up, Shang saw what looked like a bison in the distance. He bit his lip behind his mask. The avatar had gotten away and now they would have to search for her. He wasn't sure whether he wanted to or not, but he did know that he was going to figure something out since he was going to have to go back to the group that wanted to kill her.

His father laughed as if the death all around them wasn't a horrifying thing. Shang shrugged inwardly at his inability to do anything and reached down to cut of the tail end off a robe of a white lotus member. He wiped the red blooded sword on the cloth and sheathed it without looking at the glassy eyes man.

In the room further on lays a woman who looked to be dead, her body not moving. Shang looked up at the flying avatar once again and felt a pang in his stomach, he wasn't sure what it was, so he pushed it off.

"Where are they going?" Shang asks his father without looking away from the retreating figures of the avatar and her friends.

Ianzok was seated in the throne room, which must've been a rather regal and traditional-looking place several decades ago, but under Ianzok's rule, it was modernized slightly. Instead of a large sea of flames behind the throne, it was replaced by several fireplaces that were symmetrically placed throughout the room. There was no need for light in this place, where the flames burnt 24/7. A large desk separated the Fire Lord's seat from where his visitors would seat themselves on comfy leather sofas.

"I was the Sun and you were the Moon..." Ianzok murmured to himself, looking down at a family photo, stroking at the glass where his late wife stood in the picture. "It's our son's birthday today... I don't know if this is the right choice for a present... but I've decided to train him myself."

The fire around him began to pulse.

"Hah... I know. Even I'm getting nervous. I wish you were here, Kenone. You would know what was best for Aonani." Ianzok closed his eyes, the fireplaces around him beginning to flare up like crazy, flames flickering with what fire would consider passionate determination.

There was a knock on the door. "Enter."

The palace butler, a bespectacled man older than Ianzok himself, stepped in. He was named Peng You, and was the best companion anyone could ever ask for. Loyal, steadfast, rather witty and sometimes downright protective to the point he wore you down. Ianzok would know, for he was cared for by Peng You when he was in Republic City. He wasn't a bender, but the old man sure had his own tricks up his incredibly crisp, clean sleeves. Peng You pushed up his round-rimmed glasses and handed Ianzok a piece of paper with a rather familiar handwriting on it, a disapproving frown on his face.

"Nani...?"

"It would appear to be so, Fire Lord. The young Prince seems to have run off again for his... daily activities." Peng You pouted, adjusting his gloves.

Ianzok snorted, rubbing his stubble. Whether his son knew it or not, Ianzok kept tabs of his son's various escapades and was rather proud of it. The child had yet to lose a fight, much like how Ianzok was when he was Aonani's age. Peng You's cough brought Ianzok back to his senses.

"I would hate to interrupt you, I know how much you see your younger self inside the Prince, but it seems that there are events taking place outside of the Fire Nation that may actually require your attention."

A situation outside of his jurisdiction that required his attention? This must be a rather dire problem. Something that would require the Leaders of the Four Nations and the Order of the White Lotus. "Is it...?"

"I'm afraid so, Fire Lord. This is regarding the Avatar, we received a short Morse that they will be arriving in the Fire Nation."

The fire around them seemed to hold a steady dance as Ianzok seemed to be contemplating the problem with his hands intertwined in front of his mouth. He then looked up at Peng You, who returned with his usual disinterested look, although Ianzok could tell even Peng You was worried.

"I trust you can hold the fort, You?"

"Most certainly, Fire Lord." Peng You dipped his head. "Shall I prepare the komodo rhino?"

"Yes, make sure Kasai is ready."

"What of the Prince? Shall he be told to remain in the palace?"

Ianzok got up from his seat, throwing his cape around his shoulders. He thought for a bit, then he shook his head. Peng You stared at him curiously.

"You don't mean..."

"I think it's time, don't you think, You?" Ianzok replied, a smile on his face. Peng You continued to look worried but nodded before he walked out the door.

"Oh goodie..."

"I heard that."

"I suppose that we do know where we're heading yes? We should try to get as far as possible before we stop to rest. It wouldn't be safe to stay in one place for too long." Said one of the other boys among the companions, Neige, if Sudhir remembered his name correctly, as he produced a map. The dark haired Earthbender turned his eyes skyward, trying to remember what he'd learned about navigating by the stars from his mother. It was a useful skill to have in rural countryside filled with mostly identical fields.
"We're currently heading... West, I think." He offered, but he had to admit, he didn't actually know where their final destination was. He assumed it was to the leader of one of the Four Nations, but which one? He glanced back over his shoulder at the others, but refrained from saying anything more.

"Also, is anyone wounded or injured in any way? It wouldn't be ideal to continue flying if one of us were injured..." Neige said. Sudhir thought for a moment, before shaking his head. He'd been pretty single minded in finding Avatar Asha, if he'd sustained any injury, it was minor, and lost in the shock and adrenaline. He sighed, resting one of his arms on his knee. He started absently carding through the fur on the bisons head. It occurred to him that, with his, as normal, ripped shirt, it could look like he was injured. Especially when he noticed his scar was just barely visible, and could look like a burn in the low light. He surreptitiously adjusted his shirt, so that the tear no longer showed any of his scar.

Asha was far from okay, but she had to get a hold of herself. She was the Avatar for Spirit's sake. Instead of crying, she should have been leading them. And that's what she planned to do. She sat up, taking a deep breath and wiping the tears from her eyes. The smell of smoke still lingered in her senses, but she forced it out of her mind. Her mind drifted back to her last conversation with Miki. Where did she say they needed to go? "We need to go to the Fire Nation," she whispered to herself before repeating her sentence more loudly so everyone could hear her. "For now, we should get as far as we can from the Facility, then worry about getting there."

She nodded as if to reassure herself that it was the right course of action. The people that attacked them would most likely check closer compounds used by the Order of the White Lotus. Asha crawled forward to look at the Waterbender boy's map. "We should travel to Kyoshi Island. They'll protect us for a short time and it didn't seem as though the intruders had flying bison or planes, so I would assume they came by boat or submarine," Asha rubbed her eyes tiredly. She had barely gotten a few hours of sleep before she was woken up. She had to stay awake though. "Once we have enough supplies, we'll backtrack to the Fire Nation... Am I forgetting anything?"

She looked up from the map and at her five companions, a questioning gaze in her bright blue eyes.


Map of the Avatar World
The Facility is on the small island North East of of #25.
Kyoshi Island is #39.
The Fire Nation Royal Palace is #57.

As Aki sat atop the flying beast and gazed up at the passing sky and silently listened to the conversation that went around her she heaved a heavy sigh and closed her eyes. She couldn't shake the discomfort she felt sitting atop this large, flying beast but with a shake of her head she tried to push that away to the back of her mind as she refocused herself on the Avatar and her fellow companions around her.

Though she tried her best to hide it, she still looked uneasy as she nodded her head in the Avatar's direction and spoke the first time that night, "I think the Avatar's right. We should get as far as we can for now... We'll need supplies soon enough and after that we should head straight for the Fire Nation."

With that she crossed her arms and scanned her gaze over everyone who was present, "And uh... Maybe some proper introductions are in order?... I'm Akiko Iida... But you can all just call me Aki. I'm uh, not a bender but I'll do my best to support and protect you all."

She cleared her throat a bit awkwardly and dipped her head in a small bow towards the group as she waited for their replies.

"Fire Lord, surely you will not be dressed as such?" Peng You sounded rather miffed as he observed the outfit that Ianzok was in as the Fire Lord descended down the stepped towards the Komodo Rhino that Peng You had saddled and even groomed.

"Surely I am, Peng." Ianzok said with a raised eyebrow, grabbing a fistful of the tattered cloak he had on and swinging it in front of him for full effect. Dressed in nothing more than that tattered cloak, comfy pants and boots, his bare-chest exposed for the world to see. "You expect me to dress as a King and let them know of my presence?"

"Of course not, Fire Lord... but to dress as lowly as a commoner..." Peng You shook his head but nonetheless bowed.

Ianzok boomed with laughter while he rubbed the Komodo Rhino's neck. "Lowly commoner, he says, Kasai. WAHAHAHA!"

Peng You sighed.

"Come on, girl. We need to get to town. You still remember the way yes?" Ianzok leaped onto Kasai's back with great ease as the Komodo Rhino grunted and trampled its hooves on the ground. "Atta girl! Now let's go, hiak!"

"Take care, Fire Lord. I'll keep the room hot for you." Peng You spoke as the Komodo Rhino sped past him, causing Peng You's white hair to be whipped all over and his suit in dust, which he merely dusted away with an unsurprised expression his face as if to say he expected this everyday.

"Thank you, YOU!" Ianzok replied, his voice carrying along in the wind as Kasai rumbled through the path. Ianzok pulled the cloak's hood over his head and held it against the wind's pull as the foliage and rocks blurred around him. "You were always the fastest out of them all, eh, girl?"

What he got in reply was a 'Brrrhm'.

They thundered into the main town, causing yelps of surprise from the people on the streets. As the hooded Ianzok reeled the reins in, Kasai slowed down into a trot and decided to observe the scenery around, sniffing about wherever food was involved. Once Kasai even nommed on a piece of meat and Ianzok paid for it. Of course, people weren't used to seeing a hooded man on a Komodo Rhino on the streets, so they stared, but continued on with their lives as if nothing happened. This was the state of the Fire Nation now, the most peaceful era it had ever experienced. Ianzok smiled beneath the hood, happy for his people.

Now then... where was that child?

"Hmm... Aonani, Aonani, wherever may that child be?" Ianzok murmured to himself, rubbing his trimmed beard before he chuckled to himself. "Ah... that rhymed. I need to remember to write that down somewhere."

Aonani

Nani smiled at the vendor in front of him. "Just a few please," Nani says, passing the entire bag of coins to the vendor. The man was surprised and when he tried to offer Nani more than he wanted, was shocked. "Keep it,"Nani says as he sees the man start counting out change.

Nani took up the flowers, and began walking, savoring the coolness he now felt as he wasn't heated from the competition. He walked with his head up, waving at people he knew and those he didn't, even passing off a little flower to a little girl who had fallen in the road and started crying.

Nani shook his head at her brother who looked rather ashamed for having pushed her. Nani continued walking towards the castle when he heard a slight commotion. Looking onto the main road, he saw a very familiar Komodo Rhino and figure riding on it. Nani paused. If people saw his father's face, they'd probably know who it was. If Nani was recognized by his father, he too would be recognized.

Nani looked around as he tried to find a place to go and took off in the opposite direction. He heard someone call out behind him, trying to get his atteniton. "Nani! Hey Nani," The familiar voice rang out down the street and Nani sighed inwardly as he stopped and turned. He hoped that his father hadn't heard Nani's friend.

"Hey Kato, heading home?" Nani asks as his friend comes up, slapping Nani where his scar was though Nani didn't feel it any different than he would have on the other shoulder.

Kato shrugged as he looked at Nani's flowers. "That day again? You should really let me meet your family man, for all we know you could be living on the street when you could be staying at my place," Kato says. Kato was slightly taller than Nani but with blonde hair and brown eyes. He had curly hair and was a year older than Nani.

Nani, who was trying to get the two along faster, pulled his friend rapidly, trying to hide behind him at the very least. "What? Do I look that homeless? I'm clean aren't I?" Nani jokes as the two walk. Kato doesn't see it though and looks at him for a moment, freaked. "I'm not homeless Kato, quite the contrary actually," Nani says rolling his eyes as he pulls his friend into an alley.

He knew the town better than most people and knew that this ended with a dead end to a locked door. The building was an old storage place though nobody used it to his knowledge. "Kato, I'll come out and see you and your mom tomorrow, okay? I just have to get some... thing taken care of here," Nani says as he pushes his friend back into the crowd and heads for the dead end. At least if his father encountered him back there, nobody else would know.

Nani took a seat, fiddling with the flowers as he remembered an old game he used to play with this little girl. He couldn't remember anything about her except that her hair was black. He began to remove each peddle individually, whispering under his breath. He hadn't ever met someone that was special to him yet other than his friends, and they were just that, friends.
