Airport: Two Hours Later: Lin
As soon as they had gotten their strength back, Lin and her friends made it as quickly as they could to the cars and drove to the airport, which was about five miles out of town. The thought of flying in a plane made her feel a little sick because the Earthbender hated flying, just like her mother. They had tried to take a trip to Colorado and when they had gotten there, Toph declared to her husband that she was never flying on a plane again. Even from when she was a child she hated flying because she had been blind. Despite the fact that she can see now it still made her uncomfortable because they weren't on the ground, so she couldn't use her powers in case there was trouble. She could have Metalbended but doesn't want to endanger any passengers that would be onboard. Lin's mother was very smart about that. Better to be on the ground than the air.
As they waited in line to get on t

The Next Morning: Tenzin
As the sun, a giant orange disk, colored the sky, Tenzin and his friends packed the vans up to begin their journey home. He couldn’t believe they were actually doing this, but his brother Bumi had been right: if they stayed, their parents could be the next target for Azula’s plan. The young Airbender didn’t want anything to happen to them, and the last thing they needed were deaths on their conscious. Packing the last bag into the van, he looked over at the tired group, noting the bags under Kya’s and Luten’s eyes, a sure sign of how much they slept last night, which wasn’t much. He knew how they felt; they were leaving someplace of safety only to go into trouble. But if their parents were to stay off of Azula’s radar, they had no choice but to leave.
‘So much for safety,’ he thought, opening his water for a quick drink. It was getting warmer out, and th

One Day Later: Night: Zuko’s and Mai’s Home: Katara
Something was terribly wrong, and Katara was having a hard time hiding this fact as she and rest of her friends sat around the large round dining table, trying to figure out what to do about Azula and her evil minions. So far all they got was to flush her out like a flock of birds during hunting season. But Zuko had pointed out that she could smell a trap like a bloodhound. The Master Waterbender hardly paid attention because she got this funny feeling that they were wasting time debating. Something horrible had happened with their children, and Katara was more focused on them then finding Azula.
A light hand touched her hand under the table and she lightly jumped until she recognized her husband’s skin. She looked at him almost like in a daze. Aang had a look of concern on his face, and she heard his thoughts, which had a worried tone to it. ‘Katara, what’s wrong?
Volpi.You will find that the story you tell
is very rarely your own. In Lucca,
even the smallest pebbles
breathe in the warm sunlight.
Knotted stones and cobbled roads
beat out a paper-dry heartbeat heat
my city breathes in and out,
inhales sparrow air.
It's writing a story.
You are the pen.
You will find that in Lucca
the daisy chains forge fire
in side streets and back alleys.
Teenagers intertwine. Tell me,
odd flower, are you still closed?
Here we are colored wax;
the heat of the city melts us.
We run into each other, rhapsody
of pigments. Operas are our specialties.
Open up; feel the reds.
If not, try and see them. There is a place
of deep knife marks, a street
long as midnight
you may learn something there.
Valentina's voice glimmers like red wine.
You may enjoy intoxications. Still,
know alcohol has no story
and will swallow your own.
Find the sign with the wolf on it.
You'll know the place. Epiphanies ring true as church-bells.
Lucca still guides the wanderers
to well sp
