‘’A girl doesn’t like to be compared to boys. A girl doesn’t like to be the minor. A girl could be a lot better, with bitter work.’’
Treetop Hideout Edit
The dawn sunlight filtered through the skies. The dark had gone by the time rush, warming the whole morning with the heat from the sun. Annawan awoke once again to start his adventure, raging through the woods and fighting the fire.Longshot made his way onward, stepping on the ground to take a breath. “Hey, Annawan! Good morning!” Longshot greeted the earthbender.
Annawan looked at the boards as he answered, “It's a good day! The fresh air... Ah, hi! Good morning too!”
They were as different as night and day, always silent and solemn. Jim was going to the river to freshen up. “Good morning, mister earth!” He murmured.
“Good morning, fellas!” Annawan turned his head to Jim as he greeted him.
Jerry rose out of his bed in his small tent suspended in the trees. He changed into his brown tunic and tan trousers and walked towards the slide rope. His movement caused the floorboards to creak loudly, scaring the other occupants of the house.
“What is that?!” Annawan screamed as he began to run towards Jim. They both were hugging each other, trembling.
“Nothing to worry about. It's just me,” Jerry snickered, stepping forward into view.
As the sun hung in the skyline, morning faded away, and The Freedom Fighters had finished their brunch. Jerry invited Longshot to go hunting with him, and Jim felt obliged to tidy up his tent. Annawan kept watch for any signs of the Fire Nation.
Chuang Jing Forest Edit
Twenty minutes later, Jerry and Longshot decided they were far enough from the hideout to tie their hoods on the tree. Jerry breathed in deeply and began to run, followed by Longshot.
Longshot surveyed the trees and branches around him, alert for any sort of mammal or fowl that was edible. He closed his eyes for a moment and then opened them again. A monkey squirrel was scurrying across a branch, heading for a large acorn hanging from the bough.
Jerry swung one of his arms and then chopped down to the ground with the other, curling in his fingers. He looked up and saw a branch above the monkey squirrel swoop down and grab the monkey squirrel by the neck, suspending it in air. The monkey squirrel squealed and squirmed helplessly and Jerry sighed. He needed it.
"Cute animal," he muttered under his breath, before totally clenching his fist.
“Once again, we need more food than cute mammals, Jerry,” Longshot grinned, tied the monkey squirrel on his bag.
During the whole course of his hunt, Longshot and Jerry caught twelve more monkey squirrels and a large platypus bear egg. Longshot particularly prided himself in the catch of his last monkey squirrel, seeing as he had spotted it from across a clearing, nibbling at grass around the roots of a huge tree. The squirrel had hopped up high in the treeline at the sight of a running past it, but it never reached the ground. Longshot released his last-remain arrow which caused four of the to snatch up the squirrel and then break its heart. It was a well-compromised kill and would feed a few people later that night.
“Well, nice kill to an amateur,” A shadow figure sprung from the treeline, spreading her hands toward the boys.
“Who.. Are you..?” Jerry sputtered, moving backward behind Longshot.
“Amate-what?! I have been mastering my arrows for two years and you said-.,”
“Tsk... Tsk... Tsk... I have been destroyed a dozen of Fire Nation outpost here for many years! My whole life!”
“How dare you yelled at him!” Jerry shouted aloud, echoing onto the woods that making the birds flee.
“How dare you speak like that to a woman!” She replied with a fierce sound.
The boys startled, “A girl?!”
“Let me show you what I could do,” She quickly jumped on the treeline, chasing a dove by stepping his feet on the branches. She overleaped a tree, had never step her feet on the ground. She slung a dagger, chided the dove to two piece on a minute.
“Wow..,” Jerry flattered. “You are amazing!”
“Jerry, let’s go home,” Longshot quickly pulled him to the woods, made their way toward their hideout.
“Good bye, coward-arrow boy!” She waved her hand, shouted at them. “My name Smellerbee!”
Treetop Hideout Edit
Around the hideout, Jerry and Longshot emerging from the dusky woods. On their bags, several dead-monkeys hung over it, which they smelled bloody. Longshot went to the hideout along with Jerry, leaped over the rope to the treeline.
“Longshot, we have an info to you,” Jim stepped forward the archer, “We are going to invade another Fire Nation settlement!”
Jerry stood beside the tree, hung the hunted creatures above a root. He stepped against the tree, drew his knife on his scabbard. “Let’s move, guys!”
Annawan tend to his tent, trimming his armor upon his body. He stood over the treeline, grab his rock on his pocket. The earthbender sprung onto the ground, bent the whole ground as slide.
Fire Nation Settlement Edit
Upon arriving on the camp ground, the Freedom Fighters stood awhile on the hills, looking at the outworn settlement. Inside the camp, a girl grabbed a machete on her hands. In her anger, she drew her machete upon a firebender, drawing crimson bloods.
“Who... was that?” Jim shocked, disgusted by the bloody firebender.
“I know her. Come on!” Longshot abrogated his plan to invade the settlement, focused on the girl that stood upon the ground. Longshot led the boys toward the settlement, when the sun draw a scratch of golden flecks, setting in the west. “Hey, little Smeller little girl-“
“Oh, the boys again. How are you doing?”
“Longshot, you know this girl?” Jim wondered, made his way toward a Fire Nation soldier in a tent. “You’re the coolest- you’re a girl?!”
“Yes, I am,”
“It seems that you all know each other,” Annawan alleged.
“I challenge you again,” Longshot bragged at Smellerbee.
“Again? Still don’t think I’m the best,” Smellerbee jolted her machete. The two suddenly plunged at a duel. Longshot gave Smellerbee his best shot by releasing twelve arrows onward the girl, but Smellerbee easily eased the attack. She wrestled Longshot with her machete. Smellerbee jumped forward and crouched to the ground, punching out her fists and unleashing a torrent of white dagger. Reacting quickly, Longshot curled his arms around his body and dozens of arrow released around him. “Give me your best, little boy,”
“Go Longshot!” Jim shouted aloud, jumping in joy. Annawan and Jerry sat beneath a tent, watching the duel between Longshot and the girl. Suddenly, Smellerbee flung throughout the forest. The Freedom Fighters ran after her, chasing onto the forest. Smellerbee hidden through the bush, causing misunderstood between the boys. “What-“
“Longshot? So you’re Longshot?” She revealed herself.
“Yeah, he is. What-“
Felt embarrassing, Smellerbee emerging from the roots and bushes. “My father told me to looking for the last remain warrior; you,” She turned at Longshot. “He want to give you this,” Smellerbee drew an arrow, golden arrow with vivid words carved on it.
“Wrestling for Peace, Struggle in pain,” Longshot murmured, grab it on his scabbard. “Join? I am so sorry with these acts,”
“I’m apologize too, Longshot. May I join?”
“Yes!” Jim yelled as he led the fighters upon the hideout.
