|Zuko's Banished Life Ch 3|
My ship has been damaged. I'm going to the Repair Dock to get it fixed. I didn't want to stay there long and lose his trail because I could not afford that. My uncle stupidly mentioned his name. I told him that if word gets out that the Avatar is alive, everyone will be on his trail, and that I don't want anyone to get in the way of me capturing him.
"Getting in the way of what, Prince Zuko?" A voice said.
"Captain Zhao," I said.
"It's Commander now." Whatever. " And General Iroh, great hero of our nation."
"Retired General," Uncle said.
"The Fire Lord's son and brother are welcome guest here anytime. What brings you to my harbor?"
"Our ship is being repaired."
"That's quite a bit of damage."
"Yes... you wouldn't believe what happened," I am not so good at making stories, but I know who is, "Uncle! Tell Commander Zhao what happened." I could tell Uncle was mad at me.
My uncle was telling Zhao what happened. I was just mad at Zhao, he always has to know everything that happened.
"Join me for a drink?" He said.
"Sorry, but we have to go." My uncle stuck his nose in our convesation, so now I have to have tea with "Captain Zhao".Grrrrr.
He basically dragged us into a war meeting, which I do not like at all. He was telling us how the Fire Nation will rule the Earth Kingdom very soon. Impossible. Then he brought up my least favorite subject, The Avatar. My uncle panicked and knocked over Zhao's weapons. He asked how my search was going. I told him that I haven't found him, but he was stubborn and was convinced that I had found him. I was about to leave, when a person came in, and said they asked my crew and they said it was The Avatar who ruined my ship. They are so dead.
Zhao started making fun of how a twelve-year-old boy got away from me, I told him it won't happen again but he said that he will be the one to capture the Avatar, and I would stay here. I angered kicked the table next to me.
Zhao came in and said his search party was ready. He was going to have me go to my ship after he left.
"Why? Are you worried I'm going to try and stop you?"
"You? Stop me? Impossible."
That jerk, I can capture the Avatar before him. He thinks this is just so easy. I started to tell him that I will capture the Avatar before him then he brought up another one of my least favorite subjects, my father. He went on about how my father hates me.
"That's not true!"
"You have the scar to prove it."
"Maybe you'd like one to match!"
"Is that a challange."
"An Agni Kai. At sunset."
Zhao is going down.
I am ready to face Zhao. My uncle is telling me what to do, but I can do this myself. I fired a shot at him but it passed to his left, I fired another one and it went to his right. I laughed a series of fire, but he blocked it. I moved toward him and shot me but he blocked them all. Zhao suddenly had the upper hand, he knocked me down. I tried to get up but, I couldn't. He closer, then he shot at me, I rolled out of the way just in time, and knocked him of balance. I then had the upper hand. I ran toward Zhao, and was ready for the final blow, but I couldn't. I don't know what came over me but I couldn't. I missed. Zhao was furious, I just spared his life and that is how he acts. I was walking away when he fired, there was know way to stop it, right in the nick of time my uncle stopped him.
"So, this is how the great Commander Zhao acts in defeat. Disgraceful. Even in exile my nephew is more honorable than you. Thanks for the tea again it was delicious."
"Did you really mean that, Uncle?"
"Of course. I told you ginseng tea is my favorite."
I laughed inside.
