Yong Ten looks at him but doesn't respond, Kimaru repeats the question raising his voice. Still no response, Kimaru unwittingly, assaults Yong Ten by attacking him with a water whip who internally, blasts air at him sending him flying into a fountain.

Kimaru tells Yong Ten that he'll regret doing that, and shoots a torrent of water at him, knocking him back into a wall, dazing him. Yong Ten who then quickly gets clear vision again, pretends to act like he's dazed, waits for Kimaru to walk up to him, tricking him so he makes his move.

Kimaru, picks up his wanted poster and rips it into pieces, he bends a puddle into an icicle ready to slice Yong Ten's throat, he slowly approaches him, with that Yong Ten blows air out of his mouth and sends Kimaru flying back into the fountain.

Kimaru brings a water shield for defense but Yong Ten sends an air blade which breaks through the shield of water, impacting with the waterbender knocking him back onto the wall knocking him out.

Yong Ten ties him up and turns Kimaru into the guards, who in return pay Yong Ten and tell Kimaru he's being shipped off to the Boiling Rock in the morning.

Hyu Shi Village

The mysterious man that paid for Palartok's and Senlin's drink is none other than the murderer from Chapter 8 known as Kimaru. Kimaru does not yet reveal his identity to them until they tell them who they are, Kimaru was sure of who they were, when he heard their names he was correct of their identities, and told them his story.

Luckily, they were on the same page and it seems all three men are looking for the same guy. Kimaru introduces himself to Palartok and Senlin, and agrees to join their group to find and extort the Avatar. Though Kimaru has no location for the old man who had captured him which is none other than Yong Ten.

They continue to talk, and later they head out of Hyu Shi village. A person nearby their table decides to attempt to rat them out.

Senlin and the Earth Kingdom soldiers

Arriving in a town that they had saved, killing the bandits that had ravaged it. General Senlin, was now trying to hide and no longer invade towns like a mad man. He wants to lay low and make sure the Earth Kingdom will stop searching.

A bounty hunter and a guard captain had arrived at the unknown town and had looked at their target and the wanted poster. Persuading the general to follow him, he was later captured when Senlin's friend had left to enjoy themselves at a bar.

After being arrested, they began to escort him back to the capital of the Earth Kingdom. Along the way he had dropped clues for his comrades to find, they caught up to what was occurring.

By following what their friend had left behind, they had found Senlin surrounded by Earth Kingdom troops and the bounty hunter. The guard captain was going to break Senlin's hands to prevent him from earthbending.

But he was quickly stopped when water had split the large boulder in half, giving Senlin time to break lose from the chains and help his friends Palartok and Kimaru defeat the soldiers.

Senlin sells him whatever is in the caravan in exchange for three tickets heading to the Northern Water Tribe. After doing so, Xuen gives his friend three tickets for an immigration ship. And also clothes his friend in the latest Northern style fashion.

Resparking the War

Senlin had planned to have his friend Kimaru go into the dock town just a few miles away. The task was to kill any Earth Kingdom man, and leave a dagger styled like that of the Northern Water Tribe.

Although, what Senlin, Palartok, and Kimaru did not know is that the random citizen that Kimaru slew was in fact cousin of the Earth King. Later, towards the end of Book Two does news reach Earth King Qiang Zhen, that his cousin was murdered by a Northern Water Tribesman.

Furious about this, he explains that there was treaty involved and now that this treaty was broken.
