|The Gaang's All Here|
Book 2: First Impressions
December 19, 2011
The Gaang's All Here is the eighteenth chapter of Darksome Knights and the eighth chapter of Book 2: First Impressions.
"So, how can we help you?" Iroh asked the Pillars.
"Well," Haewa began, "there's this man..."
For several minutes, Toph and Iroh listened patiently as Haewa told about the merging of the worlds, the Darksome Knight, and why the Pillars needed their help.
"So, why do you need us?" Toph asked.
"We need as many people as possible behind us." Sigan said. "Without a large enough army, he'll cut through our numbers without so much as breaking a sweat."
"It sounds dangerous." Iroh said.
"I won't lie to you." Haewa replied. "It is dangerous. And it won't be easy. But if we don't do anything, hundreds of thousands of people will be in danger."
Iroh and Toph looked nervously at each other.
"We'll need to think about it." Toph stood up and walked out the tea shop. Iroh walked back to the kitchen to make more tea.
"Well, that was pointless." Noeseong sighed.
"Patience." Haewa scolded. "They'll decide."
The Next Day
Zuko woke up in the guest room of his uncle's apartment. Iroh was cooking jook in the kitchen. He walked in and sat down at the table.
"Good morning, Zuko." Iroh serenely said.
"Good morning, Uncle." Zuko replied as Iroh placed a bowl in front of him and sat down on the other side of the table.
"So," Zuko asked as Iroh was cleaning up their breakfasts, "have you decided what you're going to do?"
Iroh set down the bowls and took a deep breath.
"What?" Zuko asked.
Iroh turned around slowly. "I was up last night thinking about it and..."
"And I've decided to join your friends."
After this, they sat in an awkward silence for a few minutes.
"Well, if that's that, then let's meet up with the others." Zuko stood up and he and his uncle walked into the streets of the Upper Ring. The other members of Team Avatar soon came out of another street, followed by the Five Pillars coming out of a third street.
The Five Pillars had succeeded. They had found allies.
