"What...how...?" Aang asked Jet, who lie on the floor.
"There are a lot of things you don't know about me, Aang." Jet jumped up and drew his swords, then began attacking Aang. "That's for abandoning me!"
"Jet! We had to find Appa! Please, stop!" Aang exclaimed as he dodged Jet's attack with a flurry of airbending moves. Then he heard footsteps around the corner of the temple. Leaves crackling.
Katara turned and said, "Aang, what's all the-" Her shock stopped her from saying anything else. Every vein in her body boiled with hate. Katara hated using bloodbending, but when she saw Jet attacking Aang, she knew she had no other choice.
"Gah..gah! What's happening?!"
"Katara!" Aang shouted. Jet's arms and legs twisted as he shouted in agony. His face hit the ground with a splat.
Not long after, the other members of Team Avatar arrived at the scene. Suki and Zuko stood back, confused. Sokka's eyes widened.
Katara bloodbended Jet onto his knees. She, along with Aang, Sokka, Suki, and Zuko gathered around Jet.
"What are you doing here?!" Katara screamed.
"Katara, please, stop whatever you're doing and let me explain!" Jet exclaimed.
"I'm waiting!" Katara yelled. However, she did not stop bloodbending.
"Well, you guys took off to go find Appa. Longshot and Smellerbee sat by me as I faded away. I was gone. I woke up. I was in theis place made of ice...but it was warm. There was...a pond."
"The Spirit Oasis," Aang said.
"I...I guess someone healed me. With special water from the pond. I don't know how I got there or anything...but I was alive. And I was alone. I started the journey back to our hideout in the forest. I was in a little Earth Kingdom village when I heard the War was over. I was going to try and look for you guys...but then I was kidnapped."
"Kidnapped?" Sokka asked.
"Oh please," Katara said. Aang glared at her. She nodded.
"I don't remember anything else. All I remember is darkness. The next thing I knew, I was in Republic City. I had no idea what was going on. There was someone, or something, taking me across the world."
"That's...really strange," Aang said.
"When I was kidnapped...it felt so strange...as if...as if I didn't have a face. I woke up in the bay and swam to Air Temple Island because I somehow knew I would find you guys-"
"Wait a second," Aang said. "You didn't have a face?!"
"It was an expression, Aang. I have a face now, don't I?"
"I...I guess...I just thought that, maybe..."
Katara released her bloodbending grip on Jet. He panted heavily. He shed a tear.
"Guys...I'm really sorry for everything that I've done to you. All I want to do now is make things right between us...please."
