"It’s almost 9 years since the Fire Nation slightly conquer the North-Western Earth Kingdom. Unlike the other region, the little villages are safe to be lived, as the Fire Nation are not too fierce. But, the admiral slightly abusing the villagers, unequaled the nations. We, Freedom Fighters looking for equality!"
Treetop Hideout Edit
The sun began to awake from its sleep, brightly shining on the blue night to the red one. The birds flew over the skies, their noise resounding in the woods. The streaming water flowed, carrying rocks and fish downstream. Above the treeline, Annawan awoke to the smell of wood. He yawned, barely rubbed his eyes and walked to the another treetop. The wind moving toward the trees, brushing the leaves onto the sound of music.
“Whoa... A great morning to practice my earthbending skills!” Annawan yawned, looking forward the morning that he could enjoy. The earthbender sled to the ground and breadth his hands. He loosened up his body, ready to bend the whole earth.
Jerry walked toward the ground, greeting his godfather in the early morning. “Hi, Ann! If you have time-"
“Sorry, I have to practicing my earthbending skills,” Annawan replied to his step-son as he turned at him.
“Owh. No problem. It’s better if you do your obligation first..,” Jerry abated. He made his way to the tree and ascended to the top. He smelled an aroma of rice, repulse his stomach to the kitchen. “I hope his life doesn’t change,”
Jim had already prepared the food for the breakfast. The breezes algid the hot rice and it flew onto the woods. “Longshot must have cooked us another great diet there,” Jim pointed at the kitchen.
Jerry sat down beneath the tent and fetched a stack of rice on his hand. The bright sun was veering the cold night into the North, where the winter was comind. Finishing his habit, Annawan took a look at the kitchen. His stomach had pinched and he wanted to eat the food as soon as possible. “Neat! A bowl of jook!” He shouted aloud, cheering after saw the foods. “I love it,”
The boys continued to hang out in the dining tent. In the dusky, dark tent, the boys enjoyed the foods, filling their stomach for the day.
“The Fire Nation... I hate them,” Jim started a conversation.
Jerry put his spoon to his mouth and responded, “Yeah! Anyway, this is a perfect time to practice our skills.”
Finished, Jim and Jerry went to the river. They planned to do their duty; wash dishes.
“Hey, dude! Isn’t it strange that Annawan is always perfecting his perfect earthbending?” Jerry wondered, washing his dishes on the river.
“What? I’ve saw papa practicing his weaponry and he is a master. What’s the-"
“No, this is different. He always hangs out in the woods with some irrelevant reasons. I’ve seen him with a...”
“A... what?” Jim wondered, scrutinizing. He didn’t realize that Annawan had been behind them.
“What are you talking about, sons?” Annawan yelled. He joined the boys washing the dishes.
“Er... Fire Nation. They are...”
“Bad. Yeah, bad,” Jerry tried to act good and finished his dishes. “Let’s back,”
Longshot had prepared his arrows and drew them to its scabbard. Jim and Annawan jumped to the ground, ready to practice their skills. Jerry, alone, had to guard the hideout from the fire eaters. “I can’t stand alone here!” He shouted. Afterward, noticed nobody there, Jerry headed to the flower meadow, outside the forest.
Flower meadow Edit
The sun, already ahead, began to warm the day. Outside the forest, in the wide flower meadow, Jerry, alone, was perfecting his swordsmanship. He percolated about his godfather. The flowers grew as the sun came out, yellow and white blooming in the meadow. The wind breathed onto the flowers, tuning the chord of fun. “Pretty flowers,” Jerry muttered. The blue sky hung with the clouds ahead, moving toward the yellow spreading flower within. "How... How he can be friendly with those Fire Nation?"
Fire Nation Settlement Edit
The sun already hung in the skies, heating the island where the Fire Nation rested. The horizon was scarlet, avoiding the dark clouds, signing that the rain had come. An aged firebender entered the tent. He felt tired and wanted to take a rest from the chaos of the war. He refilled his cup as he gazed into the distance contemplatively. The old man sat in silence as he observed the vastness of the landscape before him. The only sound came from the constant screech of the wind. Between the hill on which he enjoyed his tea and the mighty hills arise, where a shrine of Earth Kingdom erected. When he had arrived here nearly two years ago, it had been dry and grassy rather than the desolate wasteland it was now. The enemy had wasted no time in setting the grass alight. It was a dangerous reminder that even though the Fire Nation was the master of fire, that element could still be used against him. “General, we should move! The Earth Kingdom noticed us!” A young guard shouted, running to the General.
“Uh... Okay,” He felt tired. He could not escape from the war and he was chosen by the Fire Lord to be the high general. In his mind, he wanted to be a normal person and enjoy his retirement with peace. “Prepare the firebenders!”
He was nearly fifty years old, an agile strategist that was second to none. He was on the brink of total victory, a victory that would elevate him above any other in the history of the world. The thought was filling his mind.
Flower Meadow Edit
Rain was emerging from the clouds, turning the desolate day into darkness. The dust was spreading over the air, hanging on Jerry’s clothes. Wetting by the water, Jerry looked for shade from the rain. “Urgh... I forgot... To bring... My sweater...!” Jerry palpitated. He could not feel anything, the rain was freezing his body. He began to run, hoping to reach the hideout as soon as possible. “Ann... Jim... Lo..,” He panted.
Water had already began running onto the land, breaching the frontier of downstream. The young warrior finally reached the hideout, looking for his dry clothes. “Jim?! Ann...?! Nawan?” He said in the cold.
He turned around, looking for the Freedom Fighters near the hideout. The rain was moved already, changing onto a great storm were the thunder shattering through the skies. Jerry packed his clothes, clenching them so they would warm him up. Toward the woods, the wind-driven rain was wetting the land. Jerry found a note on his tent; he was still panting as the rain moved on. “What... Is this...?” Jerry sputtered. They were not there...
Sincerely, your best brother.Jim.
“Argh... Just went to beat them..,” Jerry sighed. “But... If the settlement was too numerous?! Jim!!! Await for me!!!”
Fire Nation Settlement Edit
It was sunny outside, the sun penetrating the chill of the rain of the last hour. General Suzon got to his feet. Taking up his battle stance, he blew away the group of the soldiers chasing a soldier named Shan Yu several feet away. This gave him away.
"It's him! It's the Rise of the Sun!" Annawan shouted aloud, signaling a barely seen move of Longshot’s arrow to the aged firebender. Annawan created an earth boulder which fell down and crushed a soldier. Shan Yu screamed in panic. More boulders began to fall down amongst them. Jim and Annawan rushed down both sides of the ravine. Shan Yu rushed to help Suzon up, but he was penetrated by Earth Kingdom spears. A dozen earthbenders rushed to Suzon, and began an effort to tear up the track around him to trap him. Too slow. Suzon sent a breath of fire. His enemies screamed and fled as they were hit.
“Where did they come from?” Annawan wondered and stepping forward the oldest man there.
“We are Earth Cordon, sent by Earth King Kuei to aiding the Earth Kingdom villages from Fire Nation in the North Western Earth Kingdom area,” A man named Shu Ro said portly, made his foot a step toward Annawan. “Guards, take the fire general off!”
“Ready, General!” The soldiers yelled, began to run toward the woods. They utilized the earth, making a giant slide of rock, stopping the general.
“Now, who are you?” Shu Ro asked, offering a cup of tea.
“We’re Freedom Fighters, a group of orphans. We are warriors seeking to protect villages and taking the Fire Nation down,” Annawan bravely answered as he drank some tea.
“Alright,” General Shu Ro sat back in his chair, looking forward t the soldiers. “After being brave and strong to fight the Fire Nation, you should receive a gift from the Earth King,”
The young sword master knelt down and attempted to bow down to him, but his shoulder was stopped by General Sho Ru's hand.
“There’s no need to bow, my son. Here, pick yours,” General Sho Ru withdrew a sheathed sword from inside his cloak. Inclining his head, he offered it to Jim. Jim bowed slightly and accepted the sword. Both of them straightened up. Jim unsheathed the sword and proceeded to inspect it in curiosity. It was finely crafted from gird, a unique object the likes of which Jim had never seen before. Characters were inscribed upon its blade.
“In peace, sons bury their fathers. In war, fathers bury their sons.’’” Jim muttered to himself.
“Next, the archer,” General Sho Ru drew a bow with a corresponding pack of arrows. “Choose what you want to do and when you do it, it is an act of creation,” He murmured at Longshot.
Longshot bravely took the arrows and tied it on his chest. “Thank you, General,”
Sho Ru called the last, Annawan. He gave him a hand of rock with an iron shield. Without any words, Sho Ru smiled at them and went to his ostrich horse. The soldiers made their way toward the general and left the boys.
“What is that?” Jim wondered and pick the rock on his hand.
“It’s a sign to be aware from Fire Nation. We have turned the games, boys. We have taken a settlement!” Annawan cheered.
Longshot stepped forward, putting his hand on Annawan. “Don’t be too proud. We still have thousands soldiers to fight,”
Treetop Hideout Edit
Jerry awoke to the familiar smell of his brother, Jim. He opened his eyes and put his foot on the slider. He hugs him, wondering what was happening.
“Jer, I have a gift to you. It’s special from-...”
“Psst... Don’t tell him before he opens it,” Annawan stopped.
Jerry accepted the box and opened it beneath the treeline. “This is a,” Jerry flattered. “where did you get this mighty shield?”
“From the Earth King himself, bro,”
“Whoo-hoo!” Jerry shouted aloud, echoing onto the woods. There are characters carved on it. “As our case is new, we must think and act anew,” He read, amazed. “Thanks!”
