Fire Nation Airship hallway
walked through the hallways of the large Fire Nation airship, when he ran into Neza. "Hey", he said.
"Kumaro, I need to tell you something", Neza said.
"What is it?", Kumaro asked.
"I like you", Neza replied.
"I like you too', Kumaro responded. Neza paused for a moment, before continuing.
"No, I mean I really like you", Neza replied, putting emphasis on the word really. Kumaro then understood what she meant.
"I like you too Neza", he said.
Fire Nation airship meeting room
, Katara, Zuko, Mai, Sokka, Toph, Suki, and Zysor were seated around a table, discussing what should be done when they caught up to . Aang was not with them, as he was busy using Airbending and the Air Topaz to speed the airship up. "We should have someone go into the catacombs to get the emerald", Saif said.
"Agreed, I'll go", Zuko said.
"No Zuko", Katara said. "I think that since Aang was the one who Yue appeared to, he should be the one to go into the crystal catacombs. Besides, I can handle Bharato if I have the Water Sapphire, and just to be sure, you'll be with me to provide backup."
"I'll go with Aang too", Sokka said.
"Fine, not what are we going to do about Mainyu?" Saif asked. There was a silence around the room, as many knew Mainyu before he had joined Bharato. "Zysor, can you handle him?" Saif asked.
"I'll try, but I don't know if I can", Zysor said.
"Why don't we have Kumaro handle Mainyu. He may be able to talk Mainyu into surrendering", Sokka said.
"I agree, I'll tell him", Zuko said.

Azara was walking down the hallway, looking for Kumaro. As she walked, she heard noises coming from a cabin. She opened the door, and then turned away in disgust at what she saw. "Uggh, Kumaro, Neza really", she said. She then turned back to seem Kumaro and Neza both sitting on a bed next to each other. "Thanks", Azara said.
"What do you want?", Kumaro asked, upset that Azara had interrupted him.
"It's almost dinner time, and I was wondering if you'd like to come."
"Sure, I'll be right with you", Kumaro said. He then stood up, and began walking towards the mess hall, followed by Neza.
Fire Nation airship mess hall
Kumaro, Neza, and Azara had just got their meals, and were heading towards a table where, , and Adva were already seated. As they sat down, Zuko walked up to them. "Kumaro, I need to tell you something", he said.
"What is it?", Kumaro asked.
"I need you to fight Mainyu when we catch up to Bharato. We think that you may be able to convince him to surrender".
It took Kumaro a few seconds to take in this information, before he responded. "Okay", he said.
"You're sure? 'cause I could have Zysor do it instead", Zuko said.
"No, I'll do it, thanks though", Kumaro replied. Zuko the walked away, and Kumaro hung his ead in his hands.
"You're not really gonna do this, are you?" Hari asked.
"I don't want to, but I think I have to", Kumaro replied.
"Maybe you don't",said.
"What do you mean?"
"When Kumaro fights Mainyu, I'll sneak up from behind and hopefully knock hm down long enough for us to grab him, or put some chains on him", Aditi explained.
"It could work", Hari said.
Kumaro thought about the plan, before responding. "Let's try it."
