The Duel in Ba Sing Se
"What happened?" Aang said.
"It was Darth Vader, he wanted the King to give away your location," said the messenger.
"Who?" Aang asked.
"You've never heard of Darth Vader?" The messenger said.
"I'm afraid not," Aang replied.
Suddenly, Team Avatar was hammered by blasterfire.
"What's going on?" yelled Suki.
The firing continued. Soon, the white armored men-known as clone troopers-stepped out of the shadows. Toph stomped her foot, causing jagged rocks to shoot out of the floor and launched a clone trooper back through the wall at the end of the hallway. Aang and Toph moved simultaneously, raising two pillars of rock from opposite sides to crush another clone trooper. The clone blasted the rocks to pieces, only to be hit directly by a wave of water from Katara. Aang launched himself high in the air and sent a giant stream of fire at a third trooper. The clone trooper went spiraling down the hallway. Sokka charged at a fourth clone swinging his jian sword down on his head. The trooper slumped to the ground in an instant. Sokka threw his boomerang at a fifth clone trooper. The boomerang grazed the clones arm leaving a small cut. The boomerang came back and struck the troopers back. Stunned by the pain that shot through his spine, the clone was helpless as Suki flipped through the air and drop kicked the trooper in the chest. The clone fell to the ground unconscious.
Gasping for breath, Aang faced the messenger.
His heart nearly stopped.
The messenger had been shot in the chest.
He was dead.
"Guys," Aang said facing toward his friends. "The messenger said that this 'Darth Vader' is after me, and me alone. I'm going to find him and get to the bottom of this."
"Just be careful," Katara said.
"I'll be fine Katara," the Avatar said.
He stepped outside the palace, snapped out his glider, and took off.
