When tigress woke up it was the middle of the night. At first she didn't know what had woken her she maybe it was the cold. It didn't always snow in the vally of peace but tonight there was a blizzared out there. She didn't feel cold she had numbed that feeling out a long time ago but she didn't know what all she knew was something, something was wrong. Quitally she got up and opened her door a crack, no one was out in the hall which was good. She snuck out of her room and made her way outside, careful not to make a sound. When she opened the door she was immedatly hit in the face with the blowing snow and the wind so strong she could hear it without trying. Once she tuned it out she heard the faintess wimpering noise coming from outside the gate
then she realized, she knew the sound of po's wimpering by now and this wasn't him. She went onto the roof and raised her fist ready to punch whatever she saw but to her surprise outside the gate was...
Tang shook his old friend off of his back and stood up as she remained sitting on the ground staring up at him
tang: i have a job to do
and with that he ran off and left her there. kana sat there knowing there was nothing more she could do, tang just wasn't who he used to be it was that simple. Kana picked herself up, she could'nt live in her dreams any longer it was time to face reality. she ran through the village until she found lee
lee: how'd it go?
kana: just shut up and tell me what you need me to do
lee: if i shut up how can i tell you?
kana rolled her eyes
lee: go evacuate the orphanage
kana went back to where she had just been and once she got there mrs.yin made this day go from bad to worse.
Tang: why what?
kana: how about why you ended up like this
tang: my entire amily was evil you know that
kana: and how exactly did that work out for them?
tang didn't answer, she knew as well as he did how that had worked out for them, they weren't around anymore.
tang: kana i was born bad just like the rest of my family
kana: really? because i don't remember you ever planning to join any evil army
tang: and i don't remember ever giving you a reason i wouldn't go bad, i know i said i wouldn't but you know better than to trust my word, and i don't remember anyone ever actually careing about what happened to me
kana: ok then remember this. remeber the day you oved here and remember the eleven year old who was being teased about being unwanted and remember that you defended her. and as for no one ever caring abut wha happened to you look who your talking to
Soon kana caugh sight of Tang but she couldn't believe what he was doing, he was about to destroy the orphanage. she thought the sight of that should've frozen her but it only made her run faster
kana: sorry about this tang
before tang could cut the rope on his catapolt she had him pinned to the ground.
tang: what the?
kana: cut that rope i swear i'll knock out every tooth in your mouth
tang: i can handle you
kana: i'd like to see you try
he did get her off of him but she blocked most of his shots. kana still had one thing on him, her confuson. kana knew there are many types of kung fu but she's never been able to keep them straight she doesn't know which forms she knows and which ones she doesn't. all she knows is to beat your enemy so she does one thing that tang doesn't, she listens to her instincts. finally although tang hit her hard a few times she had him pinned again
kana: now all i want to know is why
Finally the boat made it back to the now destroyed city and everyone rushed to the vally of peace. once their however they found it under the attack of a small army.
mantis: now what?
monkey: what do you think?
tigress: ok their probablly holding shifu in the jade palace, po me and you are going to check it out everyone else do what you can to stop them and keep your eyes open for shifu
everyone nodded and headed off in seperate directions but just as they did lee put his paw on kana's shoulder and turned her around
lee: don't even think about it
kana: sorry lee but you can't stop me
lee sighed, he knew that was true
lee: then be careful and if it gets to dangerous, get out
kana nodded then the two headed off in seperate directions
Tang's dream that night was a memory of something he had forgotton long ago. he was thirteen years old again and in the vally of peace. he saw kana sitting against a builidng so he went over to her.
tang: happy birthday
kana gave him a little half smile
tang: so i take it adoption day didn't go well
kana: same as always
tang: it's ok
kana: yeah you can say that all you want but it's still a lie and i'm still on my own
tang: hey you are not on your own
kana: mrs.yin doesn't exactly take care of me anymore, she has me take care of the younger kids
tang: i meant you still have that lee kid
kana: for how long?
tang: ok point taken but you still have me
kana: again for how long? you said you move around alot?
tang: i know but hey haven't moved in two years, that's good
kana: i guess
tang: hey even if i move again, i'll always your friend i promise
kana: don't make me a promise you won't keep
tang: i'm not
WHOA! AWESOME! I feel so bad for poor Kana. Oh man, can NOT wait to see what happens! TO AWESOME! Just loving this so much! IT ROCKS! Can NOT wait for more, I REALLY hope Tang changes and returns to his old self again! AWESOMENESS!!!!!
Anyone but tang. Those words rang in kana's head later that night as she tried to sleep. it wasn't totally true what she had siad, others it would have surprised her but mybe not hurt her as much.
(in the forest)
tang and bone had made camp that night but tang couldn't sleep, he just remembered what bone had told him. where had kana been when he needed her? he sighed when he realized she had probably been in the orphanage scared out of her mind about what would happen to her after she turned eighteen, finally he fell asleep. but once his dream began he wished he hadn't.
It was that night when kana was back on the roof. tigress was the one to go and try and talk to her this time
tigress: we need to talk
kana: what is there to talk about? i told you i can see that he's evil
tigress sighed and sat down next to her friend
tigress: kana i understand what it's like to be apart from someone you love-
kana: i don't love tang, he's my friend or he was
tigress: you still have lee
kana only shrugged
kana: i knew his whole family was bad but he always told me he would never be like them, he swore he would never become his father and i don't trust people very easily but i believed every word he said
kana could feel herself loseing control of her tears
kana: anyone, even lee could've betrayed me and it wouldn't surprise me at all, anyone but tang
Later as po was steering the ship back everyone else sat around a crate they were using as a table.
monkey: ok so if shifu wasn't on that boat then where his he?
tigress: they knew that once the city was evacuated we'd go back to the valley of peace so they must be planning an attack there
crane: and their probably going to destroy shifu in the middle of it
mantis: why are we saying they? how many people could possibly be working with tang?
kana: ok for the last time tang is not behind this
monkey: kana get it through your head, tang is bad
kana: i can see that! i get that he's evil now i do but do you really think he's smart enough to plan all this out? a decoy ship to destract us? burning down a city maybe just as a destraction? i know he's smart but he's not this smart and he's deffinatly not strong enough to take shifu down, whoever's really behind this they have more people working for them and they have a lot planned.
It was almost dawn they spotted it, they boat taking shifu away.
crane: so what now?
tigress: we fallow it
and that's just what they did, that is until they realized where they were
po: this isn't good
viper: the boat is going out of china
monkey: am i the only one who finds it strange that we've been fallowing them for hours and they haven't attacked us?
that was true and it was strange, why hadn't they attacked.
tigress: crane fly over that ship and see if anyone is on board
crane nodded and left then came back about fifteen minutes later.
crane: there isn't anybody i searched the whole boat
tigress: it's trap
she ran to turn their boat around before it was to late, before they wouldn't be able to save shifu.
Tang walked through the dark forest with bone, his partner.
bone: what's with you kid? you haven't said a word sense we left
tang: for the hundreth time i am not a kid
bone: that's why your so quite?
tang: no it's just i ran into an old friend of mine today and when she saw me, what i was doing, she looked like she was going to break down crying right there
the wolf just rolled his eyes
bone: listen kid first up girls cry second lan-shi is going to conquor china one way or another it's best to be on his side when he does, you just gotta remember that
they were both silent for a moment
bone: besides i was there when lan-shi recruted you and you my friend were a wreck, if this girl was really your friend then where was she when you needed her?
(sorry it's so short)
Tang went to the center of the city where lan-shi, the leader had called their group. lan-shi claimed they were an army but really there wer only about twenty or so people so tang didn't consider them an army. lan-shi spoke about their triumph over the city, not that anyone knew why he hated the city so much. all they knew was that he wantted to rule china, lord shen had inspired him. the ox only spoke for a moment before revealing the next phase of his plan
lan-shi: as you may have noticed we are missing some soilder's tonight, they are on a boat with the master of the jade palace on their way out of china!
out of china! nobody had ever left china before, there were rumors that grand master oogway had come from a land far away from china but no one knew for sure. after his speech he gave orders, sending members by two or three to go and announce his take over to villages and towns and along with one other soilder he sent tang to the vally of peace.
