|More from EarthAvatar5||Adventure||G (all ages)||Here||No update page|
Everything started one fateful day. Avatar Kanna fought against the forces of evil but on the battlefield something happened and Avatar Kanna died. The world was devastated and waited for the time when the next hero will rise and finally save them. This is the Legend of Kano.
We turned around and saw a wall of earth coming at us.
"Mira look out!!" I yelled.
The wall hit her and threw her to the other end of the room.
"You can't defeat me Avatar!!" Nao shouted.
Nao bent an earth block at me. But I managed to destroy it with another one heading in his direction. Han bent an earthquake in the middle of the room, knocking Nao on the wall.
"Do you really think you can win this fight?" Nao asked sarcastically.
"You tell me," I answered, shooting a wall of earth at his way.
He blocked it in the last moment with an earth drill, then launched an earth line at us. Han ran and blocked it with a defense wall.
"Go get Mira!!" Han shouted.
I ran to a fainted Mira and left Han to fight Nao on his own.
"Mira, wake up!!" I yelled.
I could see that Han couldn't fight on his own for very long.
"Wake up!!" I yelled again, worried.
I knew that she wasn't going to wake up very soon. So I picked her up and bent a dust cloud to protect us from Nao.
"Wow Avatar, you really think and dust cloud will stop me?" He asked, removing the cloud from the room and launching earth spikes at us.
"Han, watch out!!" I shouted, seeing an spike coming behind his back.
Han barely managed to avoid the spike and rising an rock shield. He then compressed the shield make rock bullets at Nao. Nao was hit by a bullet in the left leg while trying to block it with rock shoes.
I bent an earth shelter to protect us three from Nao.
"Han, stay with Mira," I noted.
"Okay what are you going to do?" He asked.
"I will figure it out," I answered.
I exited the shelter, seeing Nao fully ready for the finale.
"I am sorry for this Avatar," he said, launching an earth wall at me.
I managed to avoid it with a line of earth columns that broke the wall that he launched to pieces. He then destroyed the columns with an earth fissure.
I launched an earth block at Nao, knocking him on the wall. I defeated him and ran to Mira and Han.
"Guys, are you okay?" I asked.
"Yeah, me and Mira are fine," Han answered.
I saw an earth wall coming at me from Nao's direction. But it was too late, the wall knocked me unconscious.
I soon woke up. I could see the stars but I realized that I was in a metal cage.
"Where am I!!?" I asked while yelling.
"You are on your way to Ku-yan prison," some man answered.
"Where are my friends?" I asked again.
"They are here," the man answered.
I started to hit the metal wall with my fists. Than I heard a familiar voice.
"You can't break the metal wall Avatar," Nao said.
"Why are you taking me to prison?" I asked.
"Well my motive is simple," he answered.
"I was ready to join the Un-che in conquering the Earth Kingdom, and when they accomplish that, I will kill their leader and become the ruler of the whole Earth Kingdom," he answered.
"Wow, I just realized that you are a bigger idiot than I thought," I stated.
"Guard, take the Avatar and his friends to prison and make sure they don't escape," Nao said.
"Yes, sir," the guard answered.
The guard opened my cage and put handcuffs on my hands. It was the same guard that I saw on the Ku-yan walls that looked familiar.
"Listen to me Avatar," he said.
"I will let your friend and you go," he continued.
"Why?" I asked.
"I can't let Nao to go ahead with his plan. With you on his way he can never accomplish the things he plans," he answered.
"Thank you," I noted.
"I will let you go but under one condition," he said.
"Okay, say it," I answered.
"You take my daughter with you. I can't let her feel the wrath of Nao when you go away," he stated.
"Okay, so what's the plan?" I asked.
He looked confused like he didn't have a plan.
"I actually don't have a plan," he answered.
"What!?!" I was shocked.
"Well, I was going to take you to my house so we can make a plan there," he answered.
"Then okay, take us there."
He want to Han and Mira's cage and unlocked the cages.
"Kano!!" Mira shouted and ran to me from the cage.
"Mira you woke up. I thought we lost you," I said.
"You will never lose me," she answered.
Then the guard unlocked Han's cage, and Han ran to us.
"So, why are we out of the cage?" Han asked.
"I will explain later," I answered.
"So, let's go to my house," the guard said.
"Oh, I didn't introduce myself, I am On Beifong," the guard said.
"So let's go," he said
We left the cages and exited on the street.
"Watch out for the guards," On said.
"Okay," I answered.
There where no guards around, so we could go to his house undetected.
We entered the house.
"Listen, we need to be quiet and fast, because Nao will notice that I didn't take you to prison," On noted.
"So, I came up with a plan," Han stated.
"Okay so tell us," I answered.
"It goes like this. So there is a river right behind the city walls. We could take a boat during the night and flee," Han said.
"Well, the plan is great. But how are we going to pass through the city walls?!" Mira asked.
"Didn't you forget that I am a guard," On said.
"You could smuggle us out in the cages," I suggested.
"Then we have a plan," Han noted.
"Wait, what about Cana?" I asked.
"How could we forget Cana?" Mira stated.
"Who is Cana?" On asked.
"Cana is my pet cat-deer," I answered.
"I saw her at the butchers," On stated.
"So he is dead," I said.
"No, animals that are captured get killed the next day."
"So she is alive," I noted happily.
"I have the keys to the animal prison. I can free her," On stated.
We where discussing the plan when we saw a girl in the middle of the room.
"Dad, what are you doing up this late? I know you are a guard, but I have a school test today," the girl said.
"Lea I want you to meet someone," On stated.
"Who are these people?" She asked.
"This is Kano, he is the Avatar, and his friends Mira and Han," On pointed out.
"It is an honor to be in the presence of the Avatar," Lea said.
"Dad, why are they here?" She asked.
"Honey, listen, they will explain everything to you," On answered.
"Why them, you tell me?" She asked.
"Because you are escaping with them. You know that Nao is killing the waterbenders here," he answered with a sad tone.
I saw that Lea was sad and confused, but she had to come with us, or she would be killed by Nao.
"Let's go," I said.
"Wait, you need supplies for your travel," On noted.
He gave us four travel bags filled with one year worth of food and four sleeping bags.
"Let's go," On said.
We exited the house and to the animal prison. We could see Cana in her cage.
"Cana, we are here," I said to her.
She almost started jumping out of happiness when she saw me. We unlocked the cage and she came out.
"Dad, we are not all going to fit on Cana," Lea said.
"You are right," On said.
"The armadillo-lion looks cute," Lea stated.
"Okay, are you sure?" On asked her.
"Yeah dad, I can handle an armadillo-lion," she answered.
On freed the armadillo-lion. To our surprise, the animal looked like it understood us and didn't attack anyone.
Han came to On.
"Can I have my animal too, I don't want to ride with these two. I always fall off Cana."
"Okay, pick one," On noted.
"I am going to choose that armadillo-lion," Han stated.
"Okay, another armadillo-lion," On said.
We went to the cages and attached the animals so they can pull the cages on a wagon.
"Bye dad. I love you," Lea said, hugging her father goodbye.
You could see the sadness in the two of them as they depart. It was possible that they will not see each other again. Lea entered the cage with Mira and On closed the doors.
The cages where pulled by our animals and we came to the city walls.
"Inspection," a guard said.
"Just transporting some prisoners," On noted.
"I need to check that." the guard stated.
"I am transporting them by orders that came right from Nao's mouth," On said.
"Sorry sir," the guard answered, opening the city door.
We stopped far outside the walls and On opened the cages.
"Bye dad," Lea said, sitting on the armadillo-lion.
"If anything happens to me, don't come back," On noted.
"Bye," we said to On.
We all climbed on our pets. Han on his armadillo-lion, Lea on hers, and me and Mira sat on Cana. The animals ran away from the city.
We were almost a mile away when we saw Nao's warriors attacking On.
"We need to go back and help him," Mira noted.
"No, he said that we don't come back under any circumstances," Lea answered.
We knew that he would be killed by Nao's warriors, but Lea said that we should move on.
We could see her turning around to see her father for the last time.
The sun was coming up and we could see a tear falling down Lea's face.
