"Who do you think you are, screaming? You're sixteen years old for goodness sakes! Grow up!" Liu-Yi beat Taizin until he fell to the ground.

"I hate my life. I wish I had bending like him so I could hurt him!" Taizin packed his bags, "I'm running away!"

"You are not," Mikassa walked in, "Without me!"

"Kenchi, the only reason you work for the Dai Li is because Dad is in charge," Mikassa said.

The boy lifted the water from the river nearby and shot it towards the soldiers.

"Oh, no! A little water...," the soldier laughed.

The boy froze the water and the soldiers couldn't move.

"You are the first bender I have ever seen in my entire life!" Mikassa hollered.

"Yes, I was born with it," Kodai replied.

"Bending still exists. There is still hope for the Avatar!" Taizin exclaimed.

"He can save us all from the Earth King," Mikassa started crying.

"The Earth King?" Kodai asked.

"He took our mother...," Taizin sulked.

"Oh, I'm so sorry," Kodai said.

"And my father was all behind it," Taizin said.

"Maybe the Avatar just doesn't know yet," Kodai proclaimed.

"Well, why don't we search for him or her?" Mikassa asked.

"We can go on an adventure around the world!" Taizin exclaimed.

"I'll sneak home real quick," Taizin said.

"Be careful," Kodai replied.

"Wait, Taizin!" Kenchi yelled.

"What do you want?" Taizin asked.

"You are the Avatar."

"I am the what?!"

"You are the Avatar."

"How am I the Avatar?" Taizin asked.

"Dad wanted to keep it a secret from you... He wants to take over the world," Kenchi explained.

"And without the Avatar, it is possible," Taizin continued.

"Exactly!" Kenchi said.

The door slammed open. Liu-Yi walks in.

"How dare you! I trusted you, son. Now, I have to deal with him, too," Liu-Yi complains, "Taizin, stay right there."

Kenchi mouthed, "Good luck," as Liu-Yi dragged him out of the room.

Taizin opened the window, jumped out, and ran as fast as he can.

Meanwhile, Kodai and Mikassa played Pai Sho.

"I'm pretty good," Kodai told Mikassa.

"Okay...," Mikassa said.

"Hmmmm... What should I do?" Kodai wondered.

"I won!" Mikassa exclaimed.

"How?" Kodai asked. "Okay, let's start another game."

"I won!" Mikassa exclaimed again.

"Hey! What are you two doing here this late at night?" a Dai Li soldier asked.

"This isn't over...," Kodai whispered.

"Hello, sir. We lost our parents and we were tired so we took a break," Mikassa replied.

"Wait a second! You're the waterbender...," the soldier whispered, "I NEED BACK UP!"

Kodai shot ice spikes at the soldier. The soldiers earthbent a wall. Kodai made a water twister, went over the wall, and froze the soldiers against the wall.

More soldiers arrived and handcuffed Kodai.

"Run, Mikassa, run!" Kodai yelled.

"We got the waterbender. Get the girl!" the Dai Li soldier ordered.

Mikassa ran down the alleys of the Lower Ring. She hid behind a few crates.

"There she is!" the soldier screamed.

Mikassa got up and continued running. She turned around and realized that she wasn't being followed. While she wasn't looking, she crashed into Taizin.

"Taizin! You're safe!" Mikassa hugged her brother.

"Not exactly...," Taizin replied.

"What do you mean?" Mikassa asked.

"Nevermind," Taizin said. "Where's Kodai?"

"He was kidnapped by the Dai Li," Mikassa replied.

"We have to get him!" Taizin yelled.

"Let go of me," Kodai ordered.

"No," the soldier replied. "I have strict orders from the Earth King."

The soldier throws Kodai into a prison cell, and leaves.

"I have a plan," Taizin said. "Get Wewak ready to escape."

"Got it!" Mikassa replied as she ran to get the bison.

Taizin starts yelling and screaming.

"Stop it boy! You are coming with me...," the soldier ordered.

Taizin and the soldier entered the room where Kodai was locked in.

"Stay in there!" the soldier demanded. "There is no way out. You will hold trial in a few hours..."

Taizin whispers in Kodai's ear.

Kodai freezes the walls and the ceiling of the room.

"Help!" Taizin exclaimed. "It's so cold in here."

The soldier opened the door and Kodai splashed him out of the way.

"This way!" Kodai hollered.

Taizin and Kodai escaped the prison. Mikassa was there waiting with Wewak.

"Get on quick!" Mikassa yelled.

The Dai Li were approaching. Taizin got on and Mikassa took off. Kodai was hanging off the side.

"Mikassa, Kodai is hanging from the bison!" Taizin said.

Mikassa sharply turned the bison and Kodai flipped on board.

"We are all safe!" Kodai high-fived the others.

"So, ummm... Where are we going?" Mikassa asked.

"We must begin training in the Fire Nation," Taizin replied.

"Training?" Kodai asked.

"I am the avatar," Taizin replied.

"He knows," Liu-Yi began.

"Who told him?" Earth King Zanroth asked.

"My horrible son...," Liu-Yi explained, "But we don't need to worry about him anymore."

"Good," Zanroth replied, "We just have to begin our plans earlier than expected."
