Avatar: The Life and Journeys of Ursa
The fourth chapter of The Life and Journeys of Ursa. It takes place during 75 AG.
With Kuzon going off to battles more and more, Ursa spent more and more time a the palace, so it was no small wonder that she was at the palace early in the morning when Ozai walked out of his room with an odd expression on her face.
"Ozai, what's up?" Ursa asked.
"I've had a premonition." Ozai said. "I'm going to look for the Avatar."
"You're gonna what?" Ursa asked in shock.
The Avatar, the last Airbender following the genocide at the start of the war, hadn't been seen since, and many people believed him dead while a hand full, mainly the hopeful and Fire Nation royalty, believed that the Avatar escaped. If that was true, then after seventy-five years, the Avatar would have to have mastered the four elements, Air, Water, Earth, and Fire, by now. As such, doing such a task was a suicide mission at best.
"Ozai," Ursa pleaded. "The Avatar has to be dead. There's no way he could still be alive, even if he did survive the Fire Nation's fight with the Air Nomads."
She was hoping Ozai would believe this as she was sure that without Sozin's Comet, no one could face the Avatar in single combat and not get beaten.
"I'm sorry Ursa," Ozai replied. "But I know that it's my destiny to confront the Avatar. I will go down in history as the man who slew the Avatar. I will be known as Ozai, the Destroyer! Ozai, the Avatar Slayer! My father will have to give me his respect after that!"
Ursa conceded his point and said, "Well, if you're sure you want to do this, at least let me give you something, so you know that there's a reason to come back."
Ursa kissed Ozai on the lips, and Ozai kissed back. Ozai then walked into his father's throne room as Ursa wept. It seemed to her that the excitable young boy from the good old days was slipping further and further away.
The last sentence alludes to Ozai's fall to darkness, which will happen a mere twenty years from the time this chapter takes place.
