0 · 539 views · located in Avatar Universe

a character in “Change of Heart”, as played by ViceRicePres

Description

Image
BASIC
- Full Name: Ke Ya Le
- Nickname(s): (Prefers just to be called by her first name, Ya Le) Ya-Ya (childhood nickname)
- Age: 23 “I still refuse alcohol”
- Gender: Female
- Role: Non-bender
- Occupation: Secretly works at her grandfather’s bakery, Bai Long Bakery.
APPEARANCE
- Hair and Eyes: Ya Le’s eyes are almond shaped with thin, medium-lenght eyelashes. Her eyes are a soft, dark grey- looking almost completely black (unless in broad daylight).
She has dark brown hair that reaches her mid-back and is straight yet wavy at the ends. Ya Le also has bangs that are layered towards the side, framing her heart-shaped face. She prefers her hair being up so she personally likes it when her hair is either a messy bun or a high ponytail. But since she has a very wealthy and traditional family, her hair is often down with her bangs pulled to the back, keeping them out off her face. The top part of her hair is usually tied to the back in a chignon bun while the remaining hair is left alone.
- Complexion: Ya Le has soft, pale skin with a tan complexion. She has slightly rosy cheeks giving her a doll-like appearance. She has never written on herself nor has she ever had any tattoos. Therefore she is 100% ink free. She only has a tiny little scar (about ha;f a centimetre long) on the very top of her forehead from an accident when she was younger.
Height and Weight: Ya Le stands at 5’5” and weighs about 115 lb.
- Body Type: Ya Le has an hourglass figure. She has curves on all the right places. She doesn’t have an overly sized bust but she is also far from being flat chested. People tell her that she’s curvy but she would never admit that fact to herself, often blushing when her own body is included in certain topics.
- Image: Image
PERSONAL INFORMATION
- Likes: Ya Le has always had an interest in baking ever since she was young. She loves the sweet scent of freshly baked pastries and how they would slowly melt on her tongue. When her grandfather used to take her to his bakery, she would marvel at the different type or food before her eyes, often being her grandfather’s personal taster. Because of this, she grew very fond of her grandfather and was devastated when he passed on her seventeenth birthday.
Ya Le also likes nature and being in peace with people. She disapproves of conflicts and thinks fighting is very unnecessary unless being provoked. Other than insisting the cook to let her step into the kitchen once in a while, she enjoys spending time outside whether to admire her surroundings or reading a good book or poem. She also took a slight interest in art and might even paint once in a while. Because she was born and raised in a wealthy family, she has grown to taken a liking to calligraphy, too.

- Dislikes: Ya Le does not like it when innocent people are hurt nor does she enjoy watching people unable to have the experience of tasting something unbelievably good. She also does not like it when men come on to her or are bothering any of her friends or family. Even though she is a very patient woman, she has low tolerance when it comes to egoistical jerks. Of course, seeing as she was raised to be a proper lady, she knew how to control her facial expressions to remain calm- even if she was blowing up inside. Also, she secretly thinks those who follow others and can’t think for themselves are utterly pathetic.
Ya Le doesn’t like the fact that she isn’t allowed to work since those are the servants’ jobs. She dislikes having to lie to her parents and sneak out the house to maintain and run her late grandfather’s bakery.
Having a sweet tooth, Ya Le isn’t very fond of anything too spicy or sour either.
- Quote: “A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows public opinion. ”
- Theme song: Angel- EXO-M or You're the One- Kana Nishino
- Potential Interest: TBA “Well, wouldn’t you like to know?”
- Other: Ya Le was born and raised in a wealthy family. She has one elder brother and two younger brothers (twins). Being the only daughter, Ya Le has also taken a liking in martial arts. Ya Le has spent some of her spare time doing Tai Chi when she was younger, too. She is now currently learning Hung Gar and Northern Shaolin Kung Fu- courtesy of her own father. At first, her mother did not approve of her daughter doing martial arts but was easily persuaded by her father for her own beneficial. Ya Le does not take advantage of her experience in martial arts and only uses it when she has to.
- Personality: Ya Le is people-pleaser and loves to have fun. Although she’s a quiet and shy girl, she loves to run around places and being active. She admires benders for having the ability to control elements and always dreamed of being one. Sadly, she was just a mere human with no super powers whatsoever.
Taught to hide her emotions, Ya Le can keep a straight face for hours and cannot be easily read like an open book. You have to be close to her in order to be able to identify her masked emotions and what she’s truly feeling inside.
Ya Le is also very kind and caring- taking care of others more than she does herself. She worries too much about others for her own good. But although she’s warm-hearted and sweet, she is also capable of being a silent yet moody bitch. This only happens when she’s not in a good mood though- which only occurs once upon a blue moon. When pissed, she usually keeps quite and shuts everyone out of her life, often giving everyone ice-cold glares to warn them not to get any closer. Of course, she wouldn’t be angry an longer, though, since doesn’t like being upset and believes that holding grudges are unhealthy.

Ya Le

As graceful as a swan, Ya Le made her way to her parents’ chambers with two female servants tagging along by her side. As soon as she reached the door to her designated area, two other guards opened it up for her as the other servant girls waited outside. Walking pass the guards, she gave them a curt nod as a way of acknowledging them and saying thanks. Quietly, Ya Le took a seat before her parent, back straight and head held high.

“Daughter, what brings you here today?” He father spoke, curious as to why she was here again. Rarely has she ever asked her parents for anything when she was growing up so when she suddenly started appearing in their chambers, his father was quite shocked and curious. Of course, he and his wife have spoken to each other about this and even had a few assumptions and theories of their own. After all, these visits have happened more frequently ever since his father-in-law died.

“I would like to go out to get some treats,” Ya Le flawlessly lied through her teeth, used to this routine every time she wanted to go work at Bai Long Bakery. She would often use this lie to get out of the house and come back home, smelling like cinnamon buns.

“Very well then,” her father gave her a small smile before looking at his wife. She gave him an expecting look before averting her attention back to her only daughter. Her then father cleared his throat, “But have some guards come along with you.”
Ya Le’s eyes widened at this. She could not have anyone escort her anywhere or her parents will surely find out about her secret. “But father, I know-”

“You’re no professional either,” it was her mother who cut her off. “I don’t want you getting hurt. Who knows- maybe all those times you’ve been out you’ve already gained a few stalkers. Better safe than sorry, yes?”

With a defeated look, Ya Le nodded her head. “Yes.”

Her father gave her an apologetic smile. “You are dismissed.”
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Upset about the fact that she couldn’t go to the bakery today, Ya Le quickly walked out her family compound with two guards following suit. Now all she could do was actually go to some other bakery or café so she wouldn’t have to hear her mother’s words: “You are a lady born in a family that rivals royalty itself. You- being a daughter of mine shall not be allowed to do anything servants are here for.”
She has heard those exact same words plenty of times and merely rolled her eyes at the thought of it. She continued roaming around the city, hoping to lose the guards. Unfortunately, they wanted to keep their jobs and watched her every move. She was just about to take another turn when one of the guards spoke up. “Lady Ya Le, where exactly do you plan on getting some snacks?”

Looking around the place, she sighed in relief as she spotted a nearby café, pointing towards its direction. “There! I heard…uhh-“ Ya Le paused for a while before looking at the café’s sign. “Oh! Oyaji’s pretty new, yeah? Just follow me.”
She happily made her way towards the entrance. As her guards followed, she could see one of them look at some of the people in disgust out of the corner of her eyes. She let out a sigh, remembering that a few of her family’s guards were a bit on the equalists’ side.

Ya Le resisted the urge to slap the guard’s face for being so unreasonable. ’Why would anyone hate benders?’ she slightly shook her head and then politely smiled at the guards as she walked inside the building, while said guards opened the door for her.

Ya Le


Ya Le sat down at a table accross a man with unruly, messy brown hair with a katana. This alarmed the guards but she just gave them a look to say that she was perfectly fine by herself. The guards, Chen and Xiu, sat down at a seperate table nearby, keeping a close eye on her. But now that Ya Le was (somewhat) alone, she relaxed a bit more and focused more on her surroundings.

The place was really cute and cozy looking with comfortable seats. It seems that the cafe was pretty popular seeing as it was pretty crowded. It sort of reminded her when Bai Long Bakery was only a few years old. People would come in and out with satisfied smiles on their faces. This memory usually made her smile but she only frowned at the thought of her late grandfather. There were rumors around her family compound that some thugs came in and tried to rob the bakery. Luckily, her grandfather managed to keep the bakery safe but severly hurt himself. He soon died a few weeks later due to lung failure. She never really knew what had happened though since her family was visiting a family friend on the other side of the city.

Ya Le looked at her two guards to find them eyeing a group of people. She turned to see who they were glaring at and only saw a table with two men and one woman. 'What's up with them? she asked herself. As far as she knew, those three looked pretty normal to her... 'Oh.' Then it occured to her that they were most likely benders since her guards were looking at them particularly in disgust.

She was about to tell Chen and Xiu to stop staring before they start any trouble when a waitress popped up in front of her, catching her off guard. "Welcome to Oyaji! How may I help you ma'am?"

"Huh? Oh, I'd like to have a plate of moon cake and some Jade tea please," Ya Le gave her a smile before the waitress walked away. She hoped her food would get here soon. She was starting to get real hungry and all the sweet aromas in the cafe wasn't helping.

Kaito was forced into a seat by a young girl, cute in her own respects, yet much smaller than himself, which leads to the question of was he really forced into the seat, the answer would still be a definite yet... He was then asked what he wanted without delay, but was then given no time to respond as the girl jotted off to another table. Well... that wasn't very professional... Kaito thought, opening the leather-bound menu. He quickly glanced through the options and decided just to let her handle it, whenever she were to come back that is... He glanced around at the other tables, they were all colorful characters to say the least...

His attention wasn't particularly grabbed until he noticed a women enter with some guards, he locked eyes with one of her protectors, and he sneered back. Kaito was unsure if it was the man's usual demeanor or whether he didn't like him for some reason... he was about to stand up and inquire as to which it was, but he decided against it, better to let it play out and make an accurate judgment before springing into action. Plus he was hungry, and still had a headache. Now where is that waitress... he thought to himself.

Kai couldn't help but shuffle in uneasiness at the choice of seating the female in front of him decided to partake. Judging from her pampered, careful clothes-not to mention the two giants sitting at a nearby table giving him death glares by the millisecond-he assumed that she was extremely rich or the daughter of someone with high authority, but for some reason, he felt a familiar presence around her-which is strange, considering how he tended to try to avoid the rich.

The waitress served him his tea earlier, rather warm and gentle steaming, now sat lifeless on the saucer. He raised the cup to his lips, forcing a mouthful of lukewarm tea down his throat. He saw the men that came in with the lady turn and was now giving the Benders practically the same looks he, himself, was giving them only moments before. His eyes landed back on the pampered woman in front of him when a waitress blocked his view of the guards and asked the lady for her order.

"Huh? Oh, I'd like to have a plate of moon cake and some Jade tea please," Kai blinked at the order, suddenly feeling a sudden craving. Once her order was written down, the waitress rushed away to take care of another customer. He left the tension increase a hundred fold as he had a stare down with the table, he then shifted his gaze onto the lady in front of him. His curiosity getting the best of him, he decided to break the silence.

"You seem awfully familiar to me, have we ever met in the past?" Kai asked, his voice deep and rough from the tea he just drank.

The waitress came back and served Ryuu his meal. While eating he observed the various people coming in. One especailly being a girl accompanied by two guards. Average rich girl I'd assume. He forked in a mouthful of eggs and bacon. He saw a certain few others in the cafe eyeing the many benders at different tables. Some eyeing with excitement, some with discomfort and dislike. Obviously fellow Equalists. Ryuu looked at his empty plate with sadness and pushed it aside.

He sipped on the glass of water and peered around once more. Hmm. Well I'm not quite tired anymore. Perhaps it'd be best to strike up a conversation with a lady. The green haired lady was conversing with the benders. I'll pass on that one. Another guy who seemed uneasy with the benders around began speaking with the rich girl. Have fun with that one. Guards are on close watch. He laid eyes on the black dressed, black haired girl. She seemed like a pleasant girl to talk to. Ryuu got up when she seemed to almost be finished eating. He paused after getting up, now getting a bit nervous. He glanced back at his own table. People were now occupying it. The waitress must have hurried to it once he got up. The place is getting packed after all.

Ryuu took a deep breath and went to the side of the good-looking girl's table. "Hello there," he greeted her with a kind smile. "mind if I take a seat?" he brushed his hair back to his ears to show both of his colorful eyes and gestured to a chair across from her.

Ya Le


Ya Le fidgeted in her seat as she waited for her order to come. She had the feeling of being watched. She looked forward to see the man with messy brown locks looking at her and she quickly averted her gaze towards her nails.

"You seem awfully familiar to me, have we ever met in the past?" Although Ya Le jumped about six feet high off the ground in her head, surprise was unevident on her face, masking her expression. She blinked and looked up at the owner of the rough voice. It was none other than the man sitting a few tables accross her himself. In a few seconds, guilt washed over her body. All she could think of right now were her mother's words before she left. Her eyes slightly widened at the thought of having a stalker.

With a polite smile, Ya Le shook her head no at the man's question. "I don't think so. My parents don't let me go out that often so I barely have time to meet and greet." Now she started feeling more uncomfortable knowing that both Chen and Xiu's eyes were boring holes into her and the other man. Fortunately, the waitress came back with a plate of moon cake and her tea. She gave her a simple thanks before looking at the dish in front of her. She took a tiny piece of one of the cakes but stopped once she noticed that the man was still there, looking a bit hungry. She wasn't used to having company besides her younger sibling and other servants so she dind't really know what to do.

She hoped she wasn't being rude or anything and decided to make this guy an accquaintance if not a friend. "Umm... Would you like some?" She gently pushed the plate of moon cakes towards the man. "Please, help yourself." She gave him a small smile and popped the piece of cake in her mouth. Her lips tugged upwards as the pastry melted softly in her mouth as she savored the sweet taste. After she was done with that tiny piece, she decided to make small talk. Luckily, the two guards were swallowing down their own treats by this time so they weren't too focused on her at the moment. "I'm Ke Ya Le," she stuck her right hand out for a handshake. She's seen people who's met for the first time do this on some films.

Waiting for a reply, Ya Le examined the man more. He had a tattoo on his left bicep and a katana right by his side. She knew she's seen those before and racked her brain for some type of memory of them. With what seemed like hours in her head, Ya Le finally realized that this man had came to her grandfather's bakery before! Suddenly filled with excitement, Ya Le eagerly spoke up. "Actually, I think I've met you before, too. Are you familiar with Bai Long Bakery?"

Realization slammed into Kai like a boulder thrown by a Pro-Bender. He recalled the bakery he passed by everyday on his way to the Blacksmith's shop. There occasionally was a brown haired female he remembered seeing but the girl sitting in front of him, proper and seemed to have an almost royal stature-almost-looked nothing like the apron caped girl from the bakery, save for the hair and the bright eyes. Kai made his way closer to the girl, and stared at the hand reaching out to him, unsure of what to do, he simply grabbed it.

"Fang Kai, just call me Kai," He replied indifferently, before pulling his hand away, but accepting her offer; popping a piece of the moon cake into his mouth. "And yes, I think I passed by that bakery a few times on my way to the Blacksmith's shop," He responded. If glares could kill, he'd be dead a million times over judging from the holes Ya's guards were boring into his back.

Kai dragged his eyes back to the crowd of the Cafe sensing a few of the Benders moving around. He watched with focused eyes, as the voluptuous red head got up from her seat beside the man giving him the impression of a Fire Bender and approached a man dressed distinctly as an Earth Bender. He shifted his head in another direction and noticed a rather flustered raven haired female with piercing blue eyes talking to a man in a... Suit? His jade eyes snapped back to the previous group as the golden eyed man silently exited the Cafe, the brunette man talking with the red head staring after him before said red head simply brushed it off. Kai kept himself on his toes, popping another piece of the cake into his mouth, and an eye on the Benders at all times.

Ya Le


Ya Le nodded as the information sunk inside her head. Any one who's been a costumer of her grandfather's was no enemy. Seeing that his attention was somewhere else, she decided to look around the cafe, too.

She could somewhat hear people talking about bending and pros. From a group of girls behind her table, she aslo overheard the words Pro-Bending. '...Pro-Bending?' She's heard some of the guards talking about that before but she never really bothered to ask any of them what it was. How could she? She was forbidden to get close to any servants as her mother feared that wealthy people often fall in love with someone working for them once they got close. Ya Le would just scoff at her mother for being so paranoid and unreasonable.

The words 'Pro-Bending' echoed in her head again. Curious to know what the words meant, she spoke up, breaking the silence. "What's Pro-Bending?"

As the words came out of her mouth, one of her guards, Chen, suddenly popped up beside her with a sneer. "Only the worst thing that ever happened! Besides benders themselves that is." Xiu chuckled at this causing Chen to laugh rather obnoxiously. He had a cocky grin on his face until Ya Le gave him a stern look- signaling him to shut up. Finally realizing his place, he bowed in apology before standing back up and eyeing the other benders once more with distrust. "Trust me Lady Ya Le. Those benders are just a waste of your time."

'Trust me Lady Ya Le. Those benders are just a waste of your time.' Kai couldn't help but silently agree with the giant's biased statement. Watching the annoyed look on Ya's face only brought him amusement, but he decided to enlighten her.

"It's practically a sport for the benders," He explained, seeing the curiosity in her eye, he sighed and leaned forward, dipping a finger in his pinkish-purple-ish colored tea. He drew a small circle, a split hexagon surrounding it, and four curving lines, representing the arena of the Pro-Benders. "The object of the game is to gain the most territory, starting from the middle line. Two teams opposing each other, three Benders on each team, one element each Bender." Kai pressed three dots in either first zones. "Once one entire team is pushed back, the opposing team gains a zone. Most territory gained at the end of three rounds, three minutes in each, wins."

Kai wasn't fond of the Benders but with the radio being his only companion during the hours near hot coal and pounding medal, he heard plenty of the Pro-Bending matches.

Kaito saluted with two fingers at the girl in a joking manner and said, "I shall give them a punch for you! See you later!" He scoffed as she left, still curious as to why he was helping her, he always needed favors from benders, so that was probably all...

He received his food. he smiled pleasantly and responded to her with, "My, it smells amazing, You should be proud of such a masterpiece!" He immediately began to eat, the smell was astounding, but the taste was out of this world. It was delicious and spicy and just the right amount of everything to make it as good as it could possibly be. Man I should come here more often! He thought to himself, hoping the meal would never end. When he finally cleared his plate, in a rather quick display, he placed some money on the table(much more than was probably needed to pay for it) then stood up.

I have been waiting for this... He thought to himself, moving closer to the rich girl's guards. he had heard their remark about benders, so Kaito thought he would demonstrate just how wrong he was... In a quick motion, he landed a full-forced fist into the guard's jaw, probably causing a lot of damage, before saying, "You think benders are the worst thing ever? Well I think sacks of shit like you are worse, want to test my theory, asshole?"

In record time, Kai had launched himself over the table and now faced the Earth Bender with an annoyed expression. The guards were on their feet; standing with such force that the chairs fell back onto the floor. Before they could take another step towards the Bender, Kai forced himself between them. "Your jobs are to protect her," He interjected, nodding towards Ya, "Not getting into fights with Benders," before turning back to the brunette in the Earth Bender clothes.

"Did you really think it was a smart idea to start a fight here, in public, where people could get hurt?" Kai demanded, gesturing to all the alarmed customers around them. "You want a fight? I'll give you one, but not here, not now," The spiky haired young man told the Bender firmly.

Ya Le


Somehow, Ya Le kept a calm expression on her face despite the fact that she was practically beating each and everyone of any existing Equalists up inside. If she were some other girl, she would've joined the other man and stuck her guards' feet up their asses! She always knew that some of her guards were going to get beat up by some bender someday and that man in green just proved her right.

As Xiu tended to Chen, Ya Le left some cash on her table and apologized to the employees before heading outside without another word. She found this the perfect time to get away from said guards and ran off to the direction Kai went to. If they were going to fight, then she wanted to be there and see everything. Growing up with three brothers, Ya Le secretly found fights and battles entertaining- even though she was against it. Before stepping a foot onto the open field, Ya Le turned around and came into a nearby shop for clothes.

Not wasting any time, Ya Le rushed to the dressing room after paying for a random dress- hoping to look like a commoner. As quick as possible, she undid her ghignon bun and took out the clip in her hair, releasing her bangs. She then swiftly tied her hair into a messy bun and started to change her clothes. About five minutes later, Ya Le came out with an olive green dress that reached mid-thigh, shoving her old clothes in a bag she had also bought. The dress looked similar to a kimono because of the thick, black silk slash around her waist. Feeling that it was a bit revealing, she wore short shorts underneath and long, black socks that stopped above her knees. On her feet were simple, black embroided slippers. Ya Le refused makeup so she didn't have to do anything with her face. Having her bangs was enough to make her look different.

With that quick 'transformation' Ya Le hurried out the door, hoping to stop the two men from hurting each other even though she was eager to actually see a real fight. She always knew violence wasn't right, often remembering the rumors about the cause of her grandfather's death.

"I get it, trust me, I've been in that situation more than I can count," Kai replied, closing his eyes. Normally, he would rather shove rocks down his throat than be in this situation, especially with a Bender, but this Earth bender seemed different, or maybe he just reminded him of a person he lost. The blonde shook his head, clearing away the memories before staring up at the clouds.

"I'm Kai by the way, Fang Kai," He introduced himself to the man on the opposite flank of the tree. He found it enjoyable, having another person there to talk to, instead of the intimidating silence that usually surrounded him like an aura. A small part of his brain was nagging at him about something, and suddenly remembered Ya Le who he left at the Cafe, but then remembered the Bakery. 'I can always stop by and visit on my way to the Blacksmith,' He thought to himself. Kai then found his mind wandering and the red head, the man accompanying him, was talking to earlier. "Hey... if you don't mind me asking, what's your relationship with that woman from earlier?" Kai refused to believe he was actually curious about a female, a Bender, no less. Remaining stubborn, he listened for the other man's reply.

Ya Le


Ya Le got to the field to see the two men talking in a tree. She sighed in relief as Kai and the other guy talked. Content wit the fact that both the guys were talking the problem out, Ya Le let them be and quietly ran off to the left. Since she didn't have any guards with her at the moment, she decided to check up on her grandfather's bakery.

Ya Le walked up to the back door of Bai Long Bakery. She didn't think she'd be able to come to the place because of Chen and Xiu so she did not bother bringing the key to the main entrance. She then kneeled down and started digging inside a pot that was much too large for a tiny bonzai tree. Feeling something hard, she grabbed the item out of the pot. It was a small wooden box secured with a special knot that only her and her grandfather knew. He had taught her how to tie and untie it whenever she opened the box.

Undoing the knot, Ya Le took the key and opened the back door. She put the key back in the box, tied it shut, and placed it back to where it was hidden. She entered the kitchen-where the back door was located, and locked the door. She then looked around the room with a small smile and grabbed a broom. Since she had very little time before going back home, she decided to clean up the place instead of baking or selling anything. Besides, she had not informed her two employees that the shop will be opened today.

About half an hour later, Ya Le was making some Chocolate Buns, humming the tune of Four Seasons. The bakery wasn't too dirty so she didn't have to clean for too long and started making food since she was bored. So far, she had already made some Asian Mushroom Puffs and was starting to make some red bean paste, too. She had the habit of making more things than one.

Ya Le knew she couldn't finish everything so once she was done, she decided give some of the food to the homeless.

"N-no reason," Damn! Kai cleared his throat and ruffled up his spiky mane. The young man could chop down trees with a rusty axe, he could smelt swords with such skill that the neighboring towns heard about his finesse, but the thing that knocked him to his knees most were lies. The blonde couldn't lie his way out of a paper bag, let alone another person. He sighed in annoyance with himself before staring back up at the sky.

Fěi Ling... huh, He forcefully brought himself back, noticing a soft rustle of leaves in the forest surrounding them, then noticed a flash of clothing. A kimono? Ya Le? Kai strained to see more of the retreating figure, but gave up when it disappeared behind a tree. "So you're helping her protect herself from Earth bending? What're you gonna do, hurl boulders at her?" The friendly, joking tone was laced with one of concern. I'm not worried about some woman I never even met-Of course not... Am I?

Ya Le


Ya Le came back into the kitchen after cleaning herself up in the bathroom. She grinned widely as she looked down at her marvelous creations. Down on the table were plates of Baked Tapioca Cake, Cocolate Buns, Asian Mushroom Puffs, Chewy Macaroons, Wonton Kisses, Chinese Almond Cookies, and Strawberry Tartlets. Filled with excitement and pride, she gently packed each dish in a rather large basket. It was quite heavy but she was already used to it. Carefully walking out the door and locking the entrance, she made her way to the park- where most vagabonds resided.

Walking by the harbor, Ya Le could see a large building that looked almost golden with all the lights. 'Hmm...Lights' she thought. She slightly frowned, knowing that her parents must be worried about her now even though she was fully capable of herself. She lost track of time with all the baking and forgot that it was already late outside.

As Ya Le turned a corner, her eyes widened in horror-almost dropping her basket full of food. There, by the park, were her family's guards- including Xiu. They were most likely searching for her since she hadn't come home yet. Hoping not to get noticed, Ya Le slipped back around the corner and continued walking by the harbor. She could make out the words "Hey! Miss!" before walking faster. Not wasting any time to avoid the guards, she decided to hide by some of the nearby shops.

As Ya Le's feet worked its way faster, she noticed the man she had talked to earlier at the cafe. She racked her brain for his name. 'Kou...Key?...Kah... Kai!' She immediately ran off to Kai, the other man that had broken Chen's jaw going by unnoticed. She was too busy hiding from the guards and hoped that Kai would help her. "Hey, Kai! It's me! You probably won't recognize me but I'm the girl from earlier with the guards!" She set down the basket and clasped her hands together in a pleading manner. "I have some more of my guards looking for me and I need help losing them." She unsubconciously gave him the puppy eyes as she waited for a reply, hoping for a yes. She didn't know why but she felt as if Kai could protect her like an older brother would. You know- the over-protective type that hunts down any guy that comes within five feet of you.

She would simply say the same for her own brother but that'd be a lie since they barely got to interact with each other since their childhood days. Besides, she had guards to protect her so she sometimes felt as if she were an only child at times.

Kai stared helplessly at the large, pleading eyes and partly out of shock, due to the fact that the girl practically appeared out of nowhere and tackled him. "S-sure?" He stammered out before noticing the guards round the street corner, heading straight for them. He instinctively wrapped an arm around the petite form of the female and faced the other direction, giving Kaito a look saying, "Don't say a word," while hoping for the guards to simply walk away.

Unfortunately, Lady Luck wasn't with them, "Excuse me," A deep voice called out to the trio. Kai turned his head but kept his back and Ya's facing the opposite direction. "Hm?" Kai murmured, acting surprised at being questioned. "Have you seen a young lady with noble stature walk by here?" The guard asked. Kai gulped his nervousness down. "I apologize, I haven't seen anyone of that nature here," He smoothly responded, having not said a lie, the statement sounded convincing but the guard still eyed Ya as if he recognized her. Acting protective, as of an older brother, he stepped between Ya and the guard's line of sight. "If you don't mind, I don't appreciate you eyeing my younger sibling," He grumbled, before taking Ya's hand and sending Kaito a look that said, "Let's get out of here before he gets more suspicious,".

Kai let out a heavy sigh, once out of the guard's view in an alley way and gave the shorter girl a curious look. "So you've got guards hunting you down now?"

#, as written by Zentose
Kaito watched the scene, not really caring if some noble girl wanted to get away from her perch, but once the guards appeared, who looked rather similar to the man he punched, he had a strange inkling to help. He took a few steps to where the two were standing after the guards ran off and said, "I think it would be best if we got to the gym, they can't search there without breaking the law, and if that happens I can always just confine them as you guys get the police..." He beckoned them towards the gym and started moving there himself.

He sighed than said, "I suppose I should apologize for punching your guard however..." He never looked at the girl when he said this, he kept his back turned as he moved towards the door, not seeming to not care if they followed or not.

Ya Le


Ya Le puffed her cheeks and then blew all the air out to speak. "I'm not a criminal, just to let you know. My parents just can't accept the fact that I'm all grown up now and that I don't need guards anymore whenever I go outside." She peeked out of the alley, seeing the guards' figures getting smaller and smaller as they walked past them.

With a relief sigh, Ya Le relaxed once more. "Thank you!" she bowed to Kai in gratitude before finally taking notice of the other man's presence once he spoke up, apologizing for the damage he'd done to Chen. Not wanting to be rude, she bowed in apology, too, for not noticing him before. "Sorry for being rude. I was in a rush and don't worry about Chen. He had it coming," she bit her bottom lip in embarrassment and stuck her hand out towards the man. "My name's Ke, Ya Le, by the way." She gave him a warm smile and was about to reach down for something on the ground until she noticed that nothing was there.

She gasped and mentally hit herself over and over again. She had forgotten her basket! Bowing in apology, Ya Le excused herself from the two men. In less than a minute or two, she came back with her basket fully opened- the aroma of freshly baked pastries soon filling the air around them. She gave them a tiny grin and motioned the basket towards them. "Since you guys helped me, would you like to have some? Please, have as much as you want."

Afterwards, Kaito led Ya Le and Kai to the gym as they followed suit. Ya Le was still walking when she felt the aura behind her stop. She turned to see Kai staring at a very pretty red-head with seriously long hair. She looked back and forth at Kai and the girl before a smirk made its way on her face. She stealthily walked up towards Kai and jabbed his abdomen with her elbow, giving him the stop-staring-or-she'll-think-you're-a-creeper look.

"Uh... Thanks," Kai said, grabbing a Chocolate Bun before instinctually following Kaito, while keeping Ya ahead of him to make sure she wasn't spotted.  He froze a few steps from the door though, before turning his head to spot the vague yet familiar presence of the red head; Féi Ling leaning, back against the building. 

"Kaito," He called for the Earth Bender, before nodding at the woman. The blonde couldn't help but stare at the red head's disturbed expression, as if she was just given bad news. The sun-kissed skin softly glistening from her earlier training. A sharp jab in the abdomen shot consciousness back into the blonde, snapping his neck from the Fire-Bender to the female Non-Bender beside him, giving him a, "You're staring," look.
