|— The Royal Messenger telling Zuko about Azula and Ozai|
August 17, 2010
"Jailbreak" is the first chapter of Book One: Water of
Aang and the rest of Team Avatar are vacationing at the Fire Nation Royal Palace. Azula and Ozai have been secretly planning to break out of prison for years, and now they've finally done it. Team Avatar has a new mission.
Aang, Katara, Sokka, Hakoda, and the rest of the Southern Water Tribe, are just finishing up the last part of the wall that protects the Water Tribe.
"I think it's almost done!" said Aang happily. "It took ten years but, the Southern Water Tribe is now, once again a bustling port city!" Sokka said.
"I never thought I'd see the day the Southern Water Tribe was back to its original self," said Kanna, who was now ninety-five years old. "It's not as big as the Northern Water Tribe, but it sure reminds me of it. We have a palace, healing huts, and an Avatar Temple," said Pakku.
"Wait, what's that?" asked Katara. "It's a messenger hawk," said Hakoda. "Read it Aang," Katara urged.
I would like you to come and stay at the Royal Palace. Pick up Ty Lee with Suki, I've already sent a hawk to them and Toph. I will give you a tour and you can relax for a week. I have built a stable specially for Appa and Momo. Hope to see you soon.
From, Zuko, Mai, Lu Ten, and Ty Ming.
To the Fire Nation
Aang, Katara, and Sokka are on their way to Kyoshi Island to pick up Suki and Ty Lee.
"Hi guys! I'm so excited to go to the Royal Palace. I haven't seen Mai and Zuko in forever!" said Ty Lee happily.
"We have to get moving if were going to pick up Toph," said Sokka. "Okay, okay, I'm coming," exclaimed Suki. "Appa, yip-yip!" said Aang.
The group finally arrives in Gaoling. "Miss Toph, someone is here to see you," said her guard. "Well? Are you going to tell me?" Toph said annoyed. "The Avatar and your friends." "Ah, yes I'm going on a vacation to the Royal Palace watch the estate while I'm gone." Toph ordered.
"Hi Baldy, Katara, Sokka, Suki, and Ty Lee." Toph greeted. "Hi, Toph!" everyone said. "We really have to go" Aang said. "I told Zuko we would be there by now."
At the Royal Palace
Appa flew as fast as he could across the Mo Ce Sea. It seems it took forever to get there, but they made it.
"Welcome friends!" exclaimed Zuko. "I was expecting you hours ago. "We, uh kinda overslept this morning." Sokka said.
"Ty Lee!" Mai exclaimed happily. "It's so good to see you again, Mai, I missed you!" said Ty Lee. Suddenly, Prince Lu Ten and Princess Ty Ming came out. "Ty Lee! Ty Lee!" Ty Ming said. "Hi! Wow! you got bigger." Ty Lee commented. "How's your firebending coming along?" asked Ty Lee. "Great! I'm still learning basics though." Ty Ming said sadly. "That's okay, everybody has to start somewhere. I'm sure yo'll be just as good as your dad or Uncle Iroh!" Ty Lee reassured.
"Avatar Aang!" Lu Ten shouted. "Shush, Lu Ten," said Mai "Sorry, he's your biggest fan." "That's okay Mai" Aang assured her. "My favorite part about you is how you defeated my grandfather!" Lu Ten said. "Lu Ten that's enough!" Mai snapped "Go to your room!" "Sorry, I was only telling him my favorite battle." Lu Ten said.
"Let's go inside, I'll show you your room's." Zuko added. "On the top floor of the Palace is mine and Mai's bedroom, Prince Lu Ten's room, and Princess Ty Ming's room." Zuko explained.
"On the middle floor is the guest rooms, Throne Room, Agni Kai Chamber, and Gallery. Zuko said. "What about the food?!" Sokka asked. "Don't worry, my servants will obey your every wish." Zuko said. "Katara and Aang your room is here." gestured Zuko. "Wow! This room is amazing, Zuko!" said Katara and Aang together. "Suki and Sokka your room is across from Toph's," Zuko explained. "Thanks Zuko," said Suki and Sokka. "Toph here is your room." "Sweet!" yelled Toph. "And Ty Lee your room is at the end of the hall," Ty Lee exchanged a smile.
"If you follow me, I'll show what's on the last floor. The Royal Spa where Katara, Suki, Toph, Mai, Ty Lee, and Ty Ming can relax together." "Wow, thanks, Zuko!" Suki, Katara, Toph, and Ty Lee said thankfully. "Sokka, I made a special place where you can practice your swordsmanship." "Wow! This is amazing!" a happy Sokka said. "And the last part an arena with a rock ground for earthbending, a lake for waterbending, and seats for anyone to watch you practice." Zuko finished.
"Meet me in the Throne Room when you're done unpacking, then we can have dinner." Zuko said. "Oh, and Appa and Momo can stay in the specially crafted stable for them. I've ordered enough hay and fruit enough for the both of them to last a lifetime!" Zuko explained.
An hour passed, the group was all gathered at the throne room.
Suddenly, a messenger came brursting into the Throne Room. "Fire Lord Zuko!" said the servant panting. "What is the emergency?" Zuko asked "Your sister and um... father.... escaped."
