‘’The streaming water flew onto the sea, its final destination. But what would happen next? Exhausted, it evaporated into the air, creating a cloud that drenched the land. After all of this chaos, let’s move.’’
Chuang Jing Forest Edit
8 Years had passed since the Fire Nation had taken Gaipan. The villagers acted as if they weren't involved in the war, choosing instead to ignore it altogether. The Fire Nation village Gaipan began to stabilize its economy, where the war was never seen again.
Beyond the horizon, above the skies, were the dark still sticks in the night. A ripple of thin golden flecks began to show, making the water droplets on the leaves glisten. In the middle of the forest, the dew still coated the grass. A tune of Major chords rang through the forest, transforming the shadowy night into the new hope of morning.
Birds cried above the canopy of the woods, echoing deep into the tomb. The warriors prepared their weapons and stuck their own blades on the scabbard off.
“Get ready, man!” An aged man entered the cave, encouraging them all.
The river continued to flow, weaving towards the woods. The sun rose in the east, warming away the cold night. The flowers bloomed toward the sunlight, covering the green grass within the woods.
“Longshot, where are you?!”
“I’m here. I am fine,” replied Longshot, turning to his father.
“Don’t forget to bring food! We are at war!” the aged man shouted back, producing more echoes inside the cave.
The young boy prepared his clothes, latching the studs onto the tight fabric. “Let’s move!”
Gaipan of Fire Nation Edit
The sunlight broke through the clouds above, turning the tides of breeze into a blazing air. The wind howled toward the woods, rattling the leaves as it went. The warriors began spying on the village and stepped carefully into the river near them.
“Watch out. Don’t make any-" The man paused. It was a bright day, and the warmth caused the river to evaporate into the air. The mighty cosmic was blanketed in the deep blue sky. Some Fire Nation soldiers on patrol marched out from within the village. “We will take back our village," the man declared.
Longshot positioned his arrows and laid down, waiting to see what his father was going to do. “Careful, dad," he whispered.
"Shen Lu, we have hope in you,” Another warrior holds him, as he drew his machete from the scabbard.
Shen Lu started walked straight toward the soldiers and fasten his Fire Nation soldiers outfit. “Cough.... Err-“ Shen Lu nodded.
“No odd man allowed,” Dre Chung stopped him, disallowing him to enter the village.
“But, I’m a Fire Nation soldier!” Shen Lu fought back.
“Yeah, that’s true...,” Sotma replied, pulling his knife out from his pocket. He continues standing in front of the gate, humming to himself.
“Okay. Show me your identity,” Dre Chung demanded.
“Should I show you my firebending skills? This village will burn down if you let me show you my firebending,” Shen Lu wanted to take a breath, but he could not. “One... Two..,” He prepared to attack.
“Okay... Okay... Here you are,” The soldier let him in. Shen Lu walked back at them, hitting the soldiers by his elbow. “Come on!” He yelled aloud, holding the soldiers off in the dirt.
Longshot already had set fire to his arrow, firing it toward the village. Choosing the right target, his arrow hit a house. The fire burnt the village occupied by the Fire Nation.
“For our freedom!” Shen Lu destroyed several houses, regardless of his duty as lumberjack.
The Fire Nation soldiers prepared their fire and sent the fireballs toward the rebels.
“Earthbend!” Shen Lu ordered the earthbenders, making a protective wall of earth in front of themselves.
They began running. The Fire Nation soldiers found it difficult to see in the dark of the woods. They began chasing each other, spreading into the inner forest.
Longshot prepared his arrows before shooting down the Fire Nation soldiers one by one. Every time he struck one, he called farewell from the tree, taking out the men with his deathly arrows.
“Take this, fire eaters!” Longshot stammered, choosing his next target. The wind caressed his shoulder, shifting his body awkwardly as he readied himself.
The warriors stepped forward and began throwing earth balls towards the Fire Nation. The soldiers evaded them easily and began to approach the rebels, rushing after them in the dark woods.
Shen Lu hit the dirt as the soldiers drew their swords. Crashed by the rock, Shen Lu struck the ground. They ran directly to their leader, wanting to protect him. But they were too late.
“You have made yourselves an enemy of us, warriors. Take them away,” Commander Dre Chung ordered his soldiers. Meanwhile, Longshot stood at the near the woods, distracted on whether they should let his father go or save him.
Senlin Village Edit
The sun warmed the village, crushing the peace from the wind itself. The covering mud splashed through the air, right after the children ran away from chasing each other. The birds cried at the mountain, echoing and rebounding onto itself, creating a streaming chord of music. Two young men stood stood before their house, examining a flower.
“It's almost 8 years, Jim. How great,” Jerry bowed, scraping the grass near him.
“Yeah. I'll never forget when mama -"
“Don’t remind me about her. It’s almost 8 years," Jerry interrupted.
A young earthbender joined the conversation.
“Hi, Annawan. How are you doing today?” Jerry asked, turning his face towards the mud.
“Same as before: busy, busy, busy. Those children never showed any interest of earthbending since their first lesson,” Annawan sighed. “Anyway, where will you go after these houses get turned into a school?”
“Yeah, we’ve decided to move,” Jim responded as he drew his sword to its scabbard.
“We're still looking for those rebellions. Jerry and I want to end this war,” Jim stood up. “...Until we meet our mother again,”
The earthbender outside drew his chi toward his hand and bent the earth near them. “Let me in. I’ve heard they lost after trying to free Gaipan,”
“What? I didn't think those skilled warriors would fail," Jim exclaimed, standing and taking his hook off. “When did it happen?”
“Almost a week ago," Annawan replied. "So, when we will pack our clothes? I want to start exploring the rest of the Earth Kingdom,” He turned his back away from the hut.
“Need more time. Maybe next week. I have to prepare my mind for confronting those fire eaters," Jim joked, heading towards his room.
“Ready to keep going?” Annawan walked straight towards the hills.
“Wait...I...need...more...time...” Jerry huffed back, raising his hands to a root. “Where are they, Jim?”
“I thought we were going the right way. On the map, it's marked that that the warriors would be somewhere in these woods. But this is the third time we've crossed these hills...Where are they?!”
With the sun brightly heating the woods, the water glistening in the river, waving and dancing all around, a shadowed figure suddenly chased them from nether land.
“Who...is..,” Jim began, frightened. They started to run. Soon enough, Jim grew tired. He wanted to stop and breathe, but he could not.
“He's an archer!” Jerry shouted, pointing awkwardly to the shadowed figure, who cheered after wandering over the hills.
The shadowed figure approached them, carrying his arrows on his back. “Need some help?”
Chuang Jing Forest Edit
Almost half a day passed since the ambassadors fainted; the archer brought them home all at once, when the sun warmed his clothes off. The sweaty day brought him into a dehydrated position, making him want to drink a lot of water when he arrived. The ambassadors awoke to the smell of a soup. Annawan opened his eyes, stepping toward the kitchenette.
“Hi, mysterious archer. What are you doing?” Annawan wondered, yawning sleepily.
“Cooking, silly. Anyway, call me Longshot,” Longshot introduced himself. The young archer continuing to cook, breaking the aromatic soup, calling them onto childhood memories.
“I remember my first corn soup,” Annawan yawned, rubbing his hair, once stepped forward the pan. “Anyway, where am I?”
“This is my Treetop Hideout. It’s a secret place to hide from the ambitious fire eaters. Plus, from those thieves and fierce animals,” Longshot speaking clearly, showing the earthbender onto the gigantic huts on the top of woods.
“Cool. Anyway, may I take a look to these huts while you’re cooking?” Annawan asked.
“Of course. My home is your home,” the archer replied cheerily.
Meanwhile, upon the flattered aroma of soup shattered onto the woods, the earthbender woke the boys from their sleep.
“Jim, Jerry, we’re here!"
