Azula waits outside the palace for someone to arrive. She hears footsteps coming from one of the walkways. She can see a man in a black robe come down towards her.
"Hello Princess," he says to her.
"Yes. Are you the assassin?" She asks.
"Yes," he says.
"Good, I have a job for you," she says. "Lately, there have been multiple attacks and robberies down in Center City during the night. A young man in an operative costume."
She hands him a small parchment containing the details.
"I need you to get rid of him. He is causing disorder in the Fire Nation and he must be taken care of. Of course, I would do it myself, but I do not wish to get my hands dirty," she says.
"This is all nice princess, but what's the pay?" He asks.
"Of course, that's all you think about. Fine, this is what I'm willing to pay you," she says as she shows him a pouch filled with coins.
"That should be fine," he says.
"Good, I will give it to you after the job is done," she says.
"Okay. One more thing. Is he dangerous in any way?" He asks.
She turns around and grins.
"Not that I know of."
Young Rokai Guo is sitting down on the side of the main street at Center City. Many people are passing by him. But, what catches his eye is Princess Azula passing by. He quickly gets up to catch up to her.
"Hello Princess," he says with a smile on his face.
She turns her head to look.
"Hello," she says.
"You come here often, don't you? I see you here a lot," he says.
"Yes, I like some of the shops here," she says.
"Don't the people at the palace go shopping for you? Why do you come here?" He asks out of curiosity.
"I enjoy shopping for myself. I like to get my own jewelry or small foods," she answers.
"Well, I think it is nice to be able to see you Princess," he says.
They continue walking silently for a few seconds.
"I don't remember if I ever asked before, but what is your name?" She asks.
"Rokai Guo," he says.
"I see," she says.
Rokai smiles at her.
"I was wondering. Would you, maybe want to get a small meal with me sometime?" He asks with a big cheesy smile on his face.
She turns her head and chuckles at the cuteness.
"You want to take me out for a meal?" She says.
"Yes," Rokai says.
"Well, your brave. I'll give you that. No boy has even asked before," she says.
"So, is that a yes?" He asks.
"Possibly. It depends. Where were you planning to take me?" She asks.
"Maybe the Hot meal shop. If that is fine," he says nervously.
"When were you planning to?" She asks.
"Maybe tomorrow night?" He asks.
"Fine, it should work out. I don't think I would be able to turn this down," she says. "Be there on time though, and don't disappoint me."
"Yes Princess. Thank you! I will be there on time," he says.
They both turn to leave.
At the palace, Azula is thinking about what she had just done.
At the Guo house.
"Father!" Rokai yells out as soon as he gets home.
His father comes out from one of the rooms.
"What is it son?" He asks.
"I am going to dinner tomorrow with a girl!" He says excitedly.
"What?! How fantastic! What is her name?" He asks.
"That is a surprise dad," he says.
"Alright then, I can't wait to meet her son," he says. "I am going to sleep, good night."
"Okay father, good night," he says.
