I smiled as the Fire Nation ship sailed by.
"Fresh meat." I muttered to myself.
I was never fond of the Fire Nation. The Water Tribe, the Earth Kingdom, and the Air Nomads--I assume they're nice--are fine by me. But the Fire Nation are brutal, heartless, and cruel.
I stalked the ship silently. "Something tells me a lot of funerals are going to happen." I said to myself. "Possibly for some Fire Nation soldiers."
I brought some ice to the top of the water, and jumped from glacier to glacier swiftly. I made sure my staff was still on my belt.
I jumped onto the ship.
No one was on deck, surprisingly. It was bare and empty.
*Strange* I thought.
I saw a doorway, obviously leading to people. Quietly, I went through.
I heard laughter of soldiers in the distance. Maybe about twelve feet away. Slowly, I tip-toed to them, blowing the hair out of my face.
"Oh, that's funny!" A voice said.
"It wasn't meant to be." Some one else said, seriously.
I leaned at the corner of the room, and peeked through. An old man, and a teenager. That was it?!
The old man was...roundish, you could say. Looked relazed.
*He should be easier to take out when the other guy is gone* I thought.
The other one looked a lot stronger than the old man. They had a scar on their face to prove it. I almost laughed.
*I shall call him Scar Face* I thought to myself.
The two were having a conversation about something. Something about a kid of some sort. While the old man showed not much emotion about it, Scar Face seemed like it was the bane of his existence.
I took out my staff.
The two weren't looking in my direction, so blending into the wall was easy.
I charged at the men.
It's just that I do write the part, I'm not on hiatus, but they don't post...I could always summarize the part...no...Okay. I'm going to try re-writing it again, if it doesn't post, I'll summarize. I've done that before, and I can do it again.
I smiled, shrugged, and simply said, "Okay, whatever. I guess I'm not a part of this family. No big deal, though. I'd rather be captured by your family than actually be directly related to you. I like being related to Zuko and Iroh a LOT better."
Azula hit her head with the palm of her hand. "You realize that makes no sense? If you're related to them, you're related to me--Want to know what?!" She cried, with a spread of her arms, and an annoyed facial expression. "I'm not here to get lessons about common sense from a 13 year old!"
"I'm 15, thanks for the clear up." I said, with a false happy note in my voice.
With one last dirty look, she looked at Zuko.
I could smell the smoke coming from his hands.
"I don't know what you want me to do for you, but the answer is no."
"You're surrounded by Earthbenders," She said. "and me. Saying no is not an option."
I broke out in a loud laughter.
"I can take all of you with both hands tied behind my back if I wanted to!" I said, through laughter. "Surrounded by Earthbenders...ha..."
I--still struggling to not laugh louder--looked up to see Azula looked at me with loathe, and sparks coming out of her fingers tips.
"Don't make me hurt you," She said simply. "It seems you mean a lot to my brother, and I don't want him to start crying like the last time some one he cared about left him."
I smiled widely, and the smell of smoke got a lot stronger. "Could I remind you that if I only dealt with three days of damage after your first strike? I don't think I have much of a reaction to shocks...unless you're just weak."
I instantly put up a wall of Earth, and felt it shake with lightning coming at it. There was a moment of silence, when suddenly, some one spoke up.
"Aren't you a water bender?" Azula said, with much caution in her voice.
My heart got stuck in my throat.
"No," I said, unconvincingly.
"Shall I get back to what I was saying?" She asked, already knowing what I'd say.
"No." I said, putting an Earth wall large enough to cover the other two around me.
"You can't hide forever."
The wall went down. In retrospect , building an Earth Wall around a group of Earthbenders...not the greatest idea.
I sighed, and stood.
"Running is never a good way to solve your problems," I said loudly. "Unless you're surrounded by Earthbenders and a nutcase. Then running is okay."
I ran up to Azula, and pushed as hard as I could passed her, Earthbending across the ground.
"Iroh, Zuko, come on!" I cried back. I started hearing footsteps after me.
Today was going to be a lot more fun than I had thought.
Yes, I am following the series, and I thought no one would be thinking that--even though they probably were, because it's blatantly obvious. It is going to be VERY fun when I put Mai in the series. Believe me...
Anasaki: Unless you like Mai. Then you're going to hate me.
Hi, I've been a silent reader for about a week and I REALLY like your fan-fic (go Zukosaki!!!!!). I can't wait to find out what happens next especially with how (If you are following the series) Mai is coming soon. Congrats on 300 posts!
Anasaki: You're saying these people are still reading?! WE HAVE 300 POSTS?!?! YAY!!!!!!! :)
And to thank you all, I will now make Anasaki do stuff against her will!
Anasaki: What are you going to do?!
COME BACK HERE!! IT'S NOT LIKE YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE A GOOD ZUKOSAKI MOMENT ON YOUR OWN!!!! *Runs after*
"Is he here yet?!" I cried.
Iroh, Zuko, and I had been waiting in the Earth Kingdom palace for was seemed like an hour.
"For the last time," Iroh said, telling me for what he thought was, and I knew wasn't, the last time. "He's not here yet."
"Well," I said. "If he isn't here, why did you wake me up at 5:00 in the morning?!"
"Zuko was the one who decided that was a good idea," Iroh said innocently.
"Don't make her turn on me!!" Zuko cried in response.
I yawned. "All I can say is thanks a lot."
No one talked for the next couple of seconds.
"Oh well!" I said, in a somewhat happy casual voice. "Wake me up when His Highness gets here."
I leaned on Zuko. "Goodnight."

I woke with the start, and I was happy to not be the only one.
"Who's coming?" I said drowsily.
"Dunno," Zuko said, in the same tone of voice.
I water bended some tea onto my face, which woke me up a little more. Clink, Clink
"That might be the Earth King," I said, in a sarcastic happy voice.
"Don't be sarcastic with him!" Iroh and Zuko shouted in unison.
"Sheesh, I won't," I said.
I yawned, and blew the hair out of my face.
"Oh Earth King!" I said loudly. "We've brought tea and tiredness!!!"
"Wonderful. The more tired you are, the easier you are to take down."
The three of us lifted our heads, looking for the source of the female voice.
'Where have I heard that before..." I muttered. Clink, Clink
Some one walked into the room we were in. Some one I--sadly--knew. She walked in, with Earthbenders on all sides.
"Hello, Uncle," Azula said. "Zuzu, unnamed girlfri--"
"Listen Asylum," I said, coming up with the best nick name I could think of. "If you dare finish that sentence--"
"I'm not afraid of you." Azula said simply. "No matter how...special you are."
I gulped. "What do you mean by 'special'?"
"Well," She explained, starting to pace. "The last time I saw you, you seemed to have had a..." A smile crossed her face. "shocking accident, wouldn't you say?" Azula looked driectly at me, and for once, I realized how much she looked like her brother. "and it usually takes weeks for someone to recover from lightning, especially at such a young age, especially when I aimed it right at your heart..."
I felt like I was suffocating. If Azula found out I was a...spirit...what would she do...?
"But no!" She said, happily. "I'm not here for you."
Azula looked at Zuko.
"I'm here for a little family chat."
