The stone discs shattered and cracked as they were thrown from one side of the courtyard to the other. A raven-haired (black hair) boy threw a stone at his opponent but he dodged it and returned at flying disc which hit the boy and sent him across the courtyard. This training exercise was being watched by a few other students and a couple adults. One adult paid close attention to the black haired boy. The smaller one got back up and charged another stone disc at his opponent. The other boy, who was obviously more skilled than him hit the stone with another disc and fired two different ones at him, which of course hit him. He was sent flying, farther than before and hit the ground with much force. This caused the boy to start panting. The older boy proudly strutted over to his fallen partner and started to laugh. He then started to laugh.
"Looks like you need more practice junior." The smaller boy bit his lip and fired more stones at him. But, he then dodged them. The two continued until the so called "junior" was exhausted. His partner made a confident laugh and looked to their teacher.
"Hey, I think he's had enough." Though, he didn't give up. The earthbender then made his stance to fire but this time he was full of anger. And he, of course, fired. But to his surprise, in fact to everyone's surprise, a bright orange fire spit from his hand. He jumps back at the sight and so does his partner. Everyone stares at him with wide eyes and open mouths. He was just as shocked as the rest of them.
"Tsurei...!" Yells his father who stands from his chair. Everyone's attention turns to the man as he spoke in his burly voice. He still sounded confused. His son looks towards him then to the floor. He bits his lip before he precedes to run away from the crowd, leaving everyone confused and without an answer.

A few hours later, the boy was sitting on his front porch, rotating small rocks in his hand. After sitting there, staring at the rocks, he dropped the rocks on the ground and began to walk into his mansion. He opened the door but before it was open completely he heard his parents talking. Though, he could only make out a little of what they were saying "This is the third time it happened this week..." More mumbles were heard from his mother."You don't mean... No, he can't..."
After hearing that from his father, the raven-haired ran from his house. He stopped running when he reached a small park, just outside his families' district. The earthbender walked up to a bench and put his hands on his face. He breathed loudly. Standing still for a few seconds before sitting on the stone bench that was placed on the side of a pond. He stared into his hand.
'The heat, it's so strong. It's like fire. No one should be able to do this.' He clenched his fist until he breathed out a long sigh. He closed his eyes and still held out his palm. Suddenly, he could see light through his eye lids. He opened his eyes and his palm was on fire.
"What the-!" He yelled as a single orange flame fluttered in his hand. He stared into it and he suddenly got more excited. The flame grew larger and larger but his concentration was interrupted when a man made a loud gasp. A fellow man was staring at him, he had a terrified look on his face and his arms were pulled back. They stared at each other until the flame went out and turned to ash.
"Uh..." escaped his lips. The other man's eyes went wide.
"You're the Kyoji kid... You... You..." The boy stood up and put his hands up to calm the man down. But, the man took this as a threat and ran off screaming about a fire bender, and a word that was new to him. He ran to the gate of the park where the man was standing and stared at him as he ran off with his arms above his head.
"Uhm..." He said with a dumbstruck look on his cold face. The sun had almost started going down. This is when he went back to his house and as he opened the wooden carved door he saw his mother standing by the doorway at the end of the hall looking in.
"Mother?" He called out to her. She immediately turned her head and looked at him. She ran up to him and gestured for him to be quiet.
"Tsurei, my dear..." She said with worry in her eyes.

An hour or two passed by, but the time went by so fast that the boy could not tell the time. He was running through a dark tunnel, having only a few cracks and barred windows as light. The muddy water splashed at his feet as he ran. Staining his boots. The tunnel was covered with water for it connected to the sewers. Water dripped down from the walls and filled small puddles. Sweat beamed down his cheeks. He then thought about the news he had heard from his mother.

' "My dear, something has happened. You must be quiet..." She took him outside to their garden. "What is it?" He whispered. "These men are looking for you." She went wide eyed. "Wha- Why?!" She shushed him again. "There is something you must know...- She paused- haven't you wondered why you've been having those incident's lately? It is impossible for a Earthbender such as yourself to be able to do that, to fire bend." "What? Firebend? How...?" She looked behind her and then pushed him father into the garden. That is when they started to hear people coming into the house and other people muttering amongst themselves outside their house. "Wait, are you saying... No... No, it's just..." She sighed. "You've shown this before, when you were very young. Too young to remember. Your father and I did all we could to keep it a secret... But it wasn't enough." He broke from his daze and stared at her. "Keep what a secret? What are you hiding." She gulped and put her hands on his shoulders. "You are the Avatar... The only person in the world that can master all four elements. And, sadly. The only person in the world that people want dead so much." A man started to come out of the house but it was too dark to see them. "You must go, run. If they catch you they will kill you, do you understand." He nodded. "This is all too confusing. Why me." She shook her head. "Use the tunnels below Omashu. It will lead you out of here. Your father and I will protect you and we'll take your secret to the grave. Now go." She pushed him away. "But." She tried to protest. "Go!" She yelled and pointed to the garden. With that he ran off and his mother entered their house.'

He continued running but stopped as he heard footsteps. He quickly hid behind a pillar and tried to be a quiet as possible. Though, to his surprise a familiar animal came out instead of a mob of angry men. A brown badger mole, twice the size of the boy came out and ran at him. He ran up to his pet and it pounced at him.
"Zushi." He called the animal's name with a smile. It sniffed his face and licked him with his giant tongue. They froze when sounds came from the entrance of the tunnel and he quickly climbed up onto it's back and held onto its fur. It suddenly started to speed down the tunnel. Even though it wasn't all that fast, they still made progress.

Farther and farther, the boy and his pet went into the tunnel. Soon it was pitch black, so the raven-haired boy was relying on his pet's sense of smell to guide him. Hours passed by and soon the tunnel into a dead end. The earth bender dismounted the badgermole and took a deep breath. He shoved his fingers into the stone and dirt wall and pushed. He spread his arms, pulling the dirt with it and clearing a path. Bright light poured into the dark tunnel and almost blinded him. A day had already passed and it was early dawn. The boy looked around and saw he was on the side of Omashu. He then stared towards his hometown. The dry sandy air blew towards the boy and caused him to cover his eyes from the sand. He looked up at the blue sky as the sun was beaming down on him. Then suddenly, the boy started to feel tired but the moment passed in an instant.
"Uh...- he put his hand on his head- maybe I need some sleep." he said to his pet. Not that long after, the avatar found a small harbor town near Omashu. It lead straight to the ocean. 'I'll have to find an inn, but I need money.' He thought to himself, than he reached for his bag that is usually draped around his shoulder but he found that it wasn't there. He stood still staring at the empty place. His head then sunk into his shoulders.
"I left it at my house, didn't I." "Sir, excuse me." Said an old man running a little shop by the harbor.
"Is that silk you're robes are made of?" The avatar stood, taken back.
"Uhm... Yes?" He answered wearily. "I knew it! I have an eye for these things." Then old man said and pointed to his right eye. And the boy stepped back.
"Where did you get those, son?" He asked and leaned on his desk.
"My mother made them." He answered. The reply made the man chuckle.
"Your mother is a wonderful seamstress." He said that then turned to his side and started to clear up his desk.
"Uhm... Old man"- the man turned and looked at him- "If I were to sell silk robes from Omashu to a vender, how much would I get?" He said and the old man chuckled.
"From Omashu eh? Quite a bit son."

A while after, the noble boy's new clothes made him look like a normal citizen. Sitting on a bench, the raven-haired tied the last string on his brown boots and wrapped a large green scarf around his skinny neck. Once he was ready, the avatar opened his newly bought "man purse" for his money. Seeing that most of the money was gone, he sank into his chair. It was much colder in the town then before. He badgermole crawled beside the bench, for it was too big to sit on it, and put its head on the ground. A few people walking by stared at him and pointed. Luckily, no one realized that it was him.
"I've got enough money for the inn but not much for anything else. And where do I go anyway?" He then raised his hand to his chin and pondered. He then snapped his fingers. "I got it! We could go to the Air Temple! We could take the boat and go there. I sure they would know something." He then pet his pet's head and it licked his hand. "Sorry, you won't be able to see anything on the boat. But the money..." After sitting, he got up from the bench and started to walk over to the inn, but he suddenly heard a cry of a woman.
"Please, you must help. Please sir, will you help." She pleaded to a man who just brushed past her. "Sir, my daughter is in trouble." She wondered over to where the avatar was sitting. "Sir, please help me." He then stepped back in confusion.
"Uh... Yes? What do you need?" She smiled. "Please sir, my little girl has been kidnapped by thugs. Ruthless monsters who bully the poor. A few other people went to take care of them, but... I've heard no word of reply... I fear I'll never see her again." She said then buried her face in her hands.
"Thugs? Why did they take your daughter?" He asked sincerely.
"They threatened to burn down my shop if I didn't give them money. But they took my baby. And I don't know what to do..." She said and started to weep. The earth bender froze at the sight of the woman crying and he did not know how to comfort her.
"I could help you." He said and she shot up her gaze to him. "I could get your daughter back." He immediately stated, unsure why he did.
"You, you will." She asked.
"Yes, I can't stand by while those terrible men do harm towards innocent people."
"Thank you, thank you so much. I don't know how I could ever repay you." The woman said between sniffs. "Those thugs took my daughter and fled towards the forest. I don't know where they are and I can't go get her." She looked to her with concern and clapped his hands together.
"I promise to get your daughter back miss. I swear I will." He convinced the woman that he would help but he wasn't so sure if he could do it.

Only after leaving the woman's side, he set out into the "forest" to search for the little girl. The sun heated down on the boy. His badgermole followed behind slowly, tired from the sprint he did back in the tunnel. The avatar pet Zushi's head. Only a little ways away, he heard sounds of swords and battle cries. Instantly, the earthbender ran towards the noise. Though his badgermole ran ahead of him. To his surprise, he saw a group of large shady looking men. The men were looking around, as if for something but their attention turned to him. He froze in his place as their icy glares were upon him.

"Aye, look at that. A guest comes to join our little party." The thug said in his bad English. They then began to approach the avatar.
"Hey, I'm not trying to cause trouble." He protested. "I uhm..." He stuttered. "I'm just helping a woman find her child." He said and cautiously backed away, step by step. A large thug wearing a hat walked in front of his teammates and looked up and down at the boy.
"I guess the old hag sent another one to go rescue her precious little daughter."
'Another?' The avatar thought. "So you do have the child." He stated plainly. A different thug held his sword in his hand and started to wobble over to the boy, which caused him to take another step back
"I guess we got to kill this brat as well." The thug spat.
"I- I don't want to hurt you." The raven-haired boy wearily stuttered. This caused another laugh from the older thug.

The avatar spread out his legs and his arm, when a rock came from the ground and he pushed his arm forward at the rock and it went flying at the man. It split in half and both pieces snapped around his wrists and flung him back until he hit a boulder. The stone cuffs melded with the boulder and kept him in place.
"He's an earth bender!" Yelled a thug with deep burly voice.

Still hiding behind the tree, Kasumi watched the earthbending boy struggling to defend himself. If I don't help him he could get hurt, or even die. She thought.

Kasumi readied her bow and aimed at the thug nearest to the boy. Before the thug could attack, the arrow pierced his heart, and his lifeless corpse fell to the ground. The 3 remaining thugs stood in shock, and so did the boy, as Kasumi charged.

One by one the thugs attacked, and each fell to her blade while the boy still remained still. In less than a minute, the last thug's bloody body fell to the ground. She turned to the boy, who had a look of shock and fear on his face. "Who are you?" Kasumi asked him.

Kasumi sighed in annoyance. I don't have time for this! She thought, as she took another step toward the boy who still had that terrified look on his face.

"You did not answer my question. Who are you? And also, Why did you come? It's dangerous to come into a place like this on your own you know." said Kasumi.

The woman asked him again and the boy paused. "Tsurei... Tsurei Kyoji." He said. "And, I... Wait, "he started," you came here by yourself. And did I not just take out that one guy!" He yelled pointing to the thug who was still stuck to the boulder.

"I came here to help a woman find her daughter! Was I wrong to help a woman in need?" He yelled to her. "Never mind, are you here to help her too?"

Tsurei slightly irritated Kasumi, but she decided to give in.

"Yes I came to rescue her daughter. My name is Kasumi Kotou. I can find the girl on my own, but if you insist on coming with me, we should ask the last thug for any helpful information." She pointed to the thug, who was still restricted to the boulder.

Kyoji avoided all the dead bodies and walked to the thug. The thug stared at Kyoji then to Kasumi. "Uhm...." He stuttered. "We, I uhm..." He then muttered before looking at Kasumi. "You ask him!" He demanded and took a little step back.

"I ain't saying nothing." The thug spoke in his deep voice.

Kasumi sighed, and walked toward the thug, and held her dagger close to his throat. She glared into his wide eyes, "Where are you keeping the girl?" she demanded.

The thug gulped, "Fine!" he shrieked, I'll tell ya as long as you let me live!" Kasumi sheathed her blade. "You have my word, now tell me." She demanded
"Shes bein' held in a hut by my boss just north of here!" He stuttered, as he looked toward her in fear "Now please...let me go."

"You just sold out your companions that easy?" Kyoji said with more demand.
"I value my life more than my gang. I repeat, please let me go." He said and took a gulp. The thugs icy grey eyes almost bore hole in the boy's head.

"He answered the question." The avatar said to the girl beside him. "We should let him go." The thug looked to the boy then to Kasumi. Kyoji took a step back and raised her wrists. The stone cuffs suddenly fell to the ground. The thug made a relieved sigh and rubbed his sore wrists.

"Thank you, I'll get out of your way right now." The thug said wearily.

Kyoji watched the thug as he ran away from the two until he was out of sight. "Let's g-" He said but stopped to see the girl had already gone ahead of him.
"Hey wait!" He said and ran after her. "Wait, do you know where the girl is?" He asked as he walked next to Kasumi. We can't just wander the forest, aimlessly." The avatar asked.

Kyoji was looking towards the girl as she spoke but then looked forward to see a small hut. Kyoji then hurried to the hut. He circled around the hut for the door and he found it on the other side.
"The door's here." He said to Kasumi. He saw that there was a large lock on the door. He then held it.

"There's a lock here. And there aren't any windows, I guess we'll have to open it."

Kasumi examined the lock, it seemed worn out and old. She turned to Tsurei.

"I think I can pick the lock with my knife, or break it" She stated, "I'm not sure if It will work but it's all we have now"

"Or we could use the key." Kyoji said to Kasumi and held up a copper coloured key. "I think it would be more efficient."
He said and held out his hand to give the girl the key.

"One of those thugs had it." Kyoji answered. "Let's go in." He stepped through the door and looked around the hut. "Excuse me?" He called out. In the corner a little girl with brown hair sat curled up his her head tucked in her knees.
The avatar quickly approached the little girl and crouched down to her level. "Hello?"

It was not a pleasant sight seeing the frightened little girl. She had bruises on her face and was covered dirt. The little girl looked up at them, wide eyed with fear and red with tears. Kasumi knelt down and gave her a reassuring smile.
"Don't worry, We're here to bring you back home." The child was skeptical at first, but then nodded at the brunette girl.
"I want to go back to mommy." The girl said, barely a whisper.

"Don't worry little one." Kyoji then gave the little girl a warm smile. "We'll take you back to your mother and you'll be alright." His face then made a serious expression. "Are you hurt, can you stand?" He asked the little girl and she wiped some of her tears away with her arm. "My foot... Hit hurts." She stuttered. Kyoji then tilted his head and look at the little girl's foot. He then made a reassuring smile. "You foots not hurt, it's just sore. I'll carry you." The little girl climbed onto the avatar's back and he stood up.
"Kotou, can you watch my back?" He asked his partner.

"Of course." Kasumi responded, as they began to leave the hut. They ventured through the forest in silence. The only sounds that could be heard were the sounds of their feet moving across the forest floor, and the uneven breathing of the little girl. However, Kasumi did not let her guard down. She had the sensation they were being watched. She felt it.

Sure enough, a group of more bandits came there way. Each were holding weapons and prepared for a fight.

She turned to Kyoji, who was still carrying the little girl. "...Have any ideas?"

"Kotou, can you deal with these guys on your own?" He said looking to his partner who was now ready for battle."

He looked back to the child on his back and smiled. "I need you to hold on tight sweetie." He said kindly to her. The girl nodded and tightened her grip around the Avatar's shoulder and Kyoji ran as fast as he could away from the thugs.
