Breaking Our Bonds
The story circulates around how Lotus, Michiko, and Chey met with Kan.
The story starts with a Amma flying in the air and Michiko, Chey, Lotus, and Jade are sitting on her.
Lotus - [Scratching Jade's stomach, nonchalantly] "Are we there yet, Fire Lily?"
Michiko - [Holding Amma's reins] "We're almost there, my friend."
Chey - [Reading a map, skeptical] "Do you even have the slightest idea where to go, Michi? [Stomach growls and rubs it] I just hope it has food."
Michiko - [Optimistically] "All I know is that our destination has an awesome ocean view."
Cutting to Amma flying over the ocean.
Chey - [Sarcastically] "Wow, then I guess we're totally here."
Cutting back to a closeup of the group.
Michiko - [Annoyed, turns to Chey] "Look, Chey, this is the first time I've actually left my homeland in sixteen years. Cut me some slack alright?"
Lotus - [To Michiko and Chey arguing, small hand sway, in a mellow tone] "Hey, you two need to calm down and cool out."
Michiko and Chey stop arguing while turning their heads back, Lotus looks down and suddenly sees a boat below.
Lotus - [Eyes widen and points down] Look, a boat below us. Let's follow it and see where it takes us.
Michiko - [Tugging Amma's reins up] "Got it, Amma, yip-yip!"
Amma flies down low to catch up and cuts to the young man from the boat, who looks up in shock.
Kan - [Eyes widen and rubs them] "Whoa, a sky bison."
Lotus - [Excited, waving her arms] "Hello down there, whoa!" [She starts to tip over, and Chey notices and grabs her.]
Chey - [Irritated] "Lotus, keep that up, and you're gonna fall."
Amma lands down in the water and the three and wave.
Chey - "Hello there traveller-"
Lotus and Michiko - [Eagerly waving to the boy] "Hi (8×)."
Kan - [Waves back awkwardly] "Umm, hello?"
Chey covers both mouths and continues.
Chey - [Bows] As I was saying, greetings, I am Chey, and the perky girls are Michiko and Lotus."
Kan - [Bows back] "Nice to meet you three. I'm Kan, I'm from the Southern Water Tribe."
Lotus - [Amazed] "Wow, you're from the Water Tribe?!"
Michiko and Lotus scream in delight, Chey is annoyed, and Kan is confused.
Michiko - "The land of snow and ice, what's it like out there?"
Kan - [Confused and smIles uneasily ] "Uhh, snow and ice?"
Michiko - [Gasps; in a conspirator voice to Lotus] "I knew it!"
Amma groans and nudges Michiko.
Michiko - [Notices] "Oh, where are my manners? This is Amma, my flying bison."
Kan gets a little nervous but pets Amma on the nose anyway, who licked Kan's face a lot.
Kan - [Nervously] "Nice to meet you, too."
Michiko - [Affectionately] "Isn't she just a little sweetie puff?"
Kan - [Dryly] "She's...sweet and puffy. Little, I wouldn't put it past that."
Lotus - "And this is Jade, my little foxcat. Say hello to Kan."
Jade hisses and claws at Kan.
Chey - [Changing the subject] "So, where ya heading, Kan?"
Kan - [Darts is eyes to the left, unsure] "Well I was-"
Lotus - [Interrupts Kan] "We're heading to some towns we marked on our map!"
Lotus shows Kan the map and points to their locations with circles, then Chey snatches it from her.
Chey - [Apologizes while rolling the map and points his thumb to Lotus] "Sorry about that, she can't keep a secret."
Kan - "Are you three traveling in a group?"
Michiko - [To Kan] "Pretty much, we even have a name. We're Team Cool Kids!"
Chey - [To Michiko, annoyed] "I thought we weren't agreeing to that name, Michi."
Michiko - [To Chey, sarcastically with arms crossed] "Oh, then you come up with a name right on the spot, Leader Guy."
Chey is stuck in thought and is beat.
Michiko - [To Kan jokingly] "Right now our default name is 'Team so lame, we don't have a cool name'."
Lotus - [Laughs] "Hey, I would've said 'Team Super Cool', but 'Team Lame, No Name' has a ring to it."
Chey - [Sarcastically] "Yeah, thanks, Lotus, I think that's way better."
Michiko - [Changes the subject] "Anywho, we're heading to the Makapu Village for 'Chey's Flora Project'."
Kan - [Amusingly] "'Flora... Project'?"
Chey - "Yeah, we're going around the Earth Kingdom the see the various plant life."
Michiko - [Darts eyes at Lotus and crosses arms; jokingly] "Pretty much what Lotus has seen everyday. It's supposed to be the most epic part of our journey!"
Chey - [Defensively] "Hey, it's very important to me that I see a panda lily or two. I need to capture them in their true beauty."
Kan - [Jokingly with arms crossed] "Sounds pretty wild."
Lotus - "You bet, we're even going to the cave where I was born."
Everyone dart eyes at Lotus in silence with eyes widening, and Chey blinks.
Kan - "Uhhhhh."
Lotus - "It was a rainy evening-"
Michiko - [Grabs Lotus by the shoulder and pats her arm] "Lotus, Honeyjar, too much information. Okay?"
Chey - "Sorry,[Points to Lotus] this one likes to get personal."
Lotus - [Defensively] "What, I'm a secure."
Kan - [Stunned] "I guess I'll come, too. Just for the sake of traveling with some company with a map."
Chey - [Shocked] "Really, after what the 'Kooky Nomad Girl' just said?"
Kan - "It's better than what I heard from two fishermen."
Michiko - [Curious] "What was it about?"
Kan - [Winces and smiles awkwardly] "I could spare you the details."
Lotus - "See, I'm a great conversation starter."
Chey - [Sarcastically] "Spectacular, but umm not to be rude, [Clenching his stomach] but you wouldn't happen to have any food on you, would ya?"
Kan - [Grabbing food from his satchel] "I packed some cookies and seal jerky before I left. Separate satchels."
Chey - [Reaching out his hand] "Thanks, Kan , you're alright with me...for now."
Jade attempts to grab the seal jerky from Chey's hand and stands on her hind legs.
Lotus - "I betcha I know every poisonous plant! Now I'm still confused, is it baccui berries or maka'ole berries that are safe to eat?
Michiko - "I'd rather take my chance with an herbalist okay, Honeyjar?"
Chey - [Smugly] "Lotus, since you know all the locations of the flora in the Earth Kingdom, where do panda lilies grow?" [To Kan] "I bet she's gonna say something ridiculous."
Lotus - That's easy, the volcano."
- The flying bit parallels the beginning in "The Warriors of Kyoshi".
