"Is it going to be much longer?" Sokka complained. Zuko pinched the bridge of his nose and ignored him. Sokka glanced at Longshot.
Longshot was looking out over the horizon. "Am I the only one who's bored here?" Sokka asked. "Pretty much." Zuko replied. Longshot nodded in agreement.
"How can you guys not be bored?" Sokka whined. "All this silence is killing me!" He pouted and crossed his arms. "Silence is good for thinking. Maybe you should try it. If you can." Zuko smirked.
Longshot chuckled. "HEY!" Sokka said when he'd finally worked out what Zuko had said. "I can think!" He pouted some more.
At the prison....
Katara sighed. She hated being at the Boiling Rock. The only time that was tolerable was when she was with Suki. That still was depressing though.
The other prisoners bullied Suki and Katara since they weren't from the firenation. And they really couldn't do much about it.
The guards didn't care. They acutally joined in. Katara sighed once again. "Someone save me." She whispered.
At the temple...
"Are you okay?" Sun-Li asked Smellerbee. "Of course I'm okay!" Smellerbee snapped. She was cleaning her dagger. "You don't seem okay," Sun-Li presisted.
"LEAVE ME ALONE KID!" Smellerbee yelled. Sun-Li backed up, her eyes filled with tears. Smellerbee rolled her eyes at all the angry looks she was getting.
"You shouldn't be so mean!" Ty-Lee comforted Sun-Li. "And you shouldn't be so ditzy!" Smellerbee shot back. Ty-Lee herself teared up.
"What's wrong with you?" Toph asked in disgust. "So sorry I hurt Circus Girl's feelings." Smellerbee mumbled sarcasticly. Ty-Lee started sobbing outright.
She flew away on her glider. Aang glared at Smellerbee, then turned to follow Ty-Lee. "What's your problem?" The Duke asked in a heated tone. "Nothing." Smellerbee replied.
"Well quit it. Your being a jerk." The Duke scowled at her. He sat down next to Sun-Li and patted her on the back. Smellerbee made a gagging noise and walked off.
"JERK FACE!" The Duke yelled after her. "What's wrong with Smellerbee? We just tried to talk to us and she chewed us out." Teo asked as he rolled up with Haru close behind.
"I don't know. She's got a major attitude right now." Toph shrugged. "She's a major jerk face right now!" The Duke added.
Somewhere in the air....
"Hey! I see something!" Sokka pointed. "It's the bowling rock." Zuko said grimly. Things didn't go so well after they entered the steam filled crater.
"Something's wrong with the ballon!" Zuko struggled to keep it upright. "Do something! Your the firebender! Heat it up!" Sokka comanded.
"I'm trying!" Zuko replied. He shot more fire into the boiler. "That air outside is just as hot as the air in the ballon!" Zuko said.
"She's going down!" Sokka said. "WE ARE GOING TO BE BOILED!!!! AHHHH!" He began to panic. Longshot tied a rope to the end of an arrow and shot it into the side of a rock.
He gestured for Zuko and Sokka to grab on. They jumped and swung to land just in time. "No! The air ship!" Zuko held his hands to his head. "I thought this might be a one way trip." Sokka said quietly.
"Then why did you want to come?" Zuko and Sokka started arguing. Longshot rolled his eyes and looked around. He tapped Zuko on the shoulder. "What?" Zuko turned to him. Longshot raised an eyebrow.
"Right, we need to keep our goal in sight." Zuko said. Longshot nodded. "What's the plan?" Zuko asked Sokka. "This is what we do," Sokka began.
If I can dream of waking in a dream, how do I know I'm not dreaming now?
