Well now, I haven't posted a chapter since 11/3/13. And I left you all at a cliffhanger. Sorry about that. I hope you all had a Happy New Year!
"Well, now," said a loud and somewhat gruff voice.
The Six remained in their fighting poses, ready for an attack at a moment's notice, despite the freezing weather. Soon, the shadowy figure came into sight of them.
The large polar bear looked at them with a kind smile. He had on a dull orange robe and dark brown around the edges. His pitch black eyes examined the group of Kung Fu Masters.
"Who are you?" Tigress asked, her eyes narrowed at the bear.
"I am..." he began, but was interrupted by Po.
"Are you the monster that resides at Mt. Mihan?!" he asked.
"Monster?" the polar bear questioned. "Now, where did you hear someone calling me a monster?"
"Our friend is caught up in a silly myth," Mantis told him.
The polar bear turned his head to the small, green bug on a monkey's shoulders. "I see." The polar bear stood tall above them and crossed his arms. "I believe you are Master Shifu's students? I am Master Kainen."
"Master Kainen? You're the Kung Fu Master who traveled around training students with potential in secluded areas," said Crane, relaxing as they now knew his identity.
The six Kung Fu Masters relaxed and Tigress took a step forward. She reached into her pant's pocket and handed the letter to him. "Our Master, Master Shifu, wanted us to give this to you."
The polar bear took the small letter and without hesitation, placed it in his own pocket. "Please, come to my den. You can relax there."
They bowed Palm to Fist style and thanked him for his kind offer. The polar bear led the way now through the blinding storm. Po, previously struggling to catch up, now walked up front to ask Master Kainen some questions. He always loved learning from the Masters. He hadn't known too much about this one though. He wasn't about to miss his chance.
Po began his long list of questions with, "So, what secluded places have you traveled to?"
"Many different places. My promises to keep the names of those places prevents me from saying any further," was the Kung Fu Master's reply.
The wind suddenly changed its direction. The snow now blew against their backs. It made things easier for the group to travel.
"Do your students travel with you?" asked Po, for his second question out of who knows how many.
"No. They've all took up the responsibility of guarding their homes."
As the Dragon Warrior was about to ask something, Crane piped up, "Do you have any students now?"
Po gave a short grunt. His green eyes looked at Crane and muttered, "I was gonna ask that."
"Yes. One student. My son, Travis," he said. After replying to the question, he spotted his home just a block away.
This is pretty long, so I had to split it in two parts.
