After a few days in the hospital, Nazo was allowed to leave. He was happy to get out of there. The beds weren’t that comfortable and the food didn’t taste good. When he did walk out of the hospital, everyone was waiting for him. They were all happy to see that he was fine and decided to take him out for dinner. He was happy to get some real food and they had a good time. After a night on the town, they went back to their hotel and went to sleep.
The Next day they herd an alarm go off. They all got up and changed. They looked out the window and see a Chimera fleet heading their way. They get on Blaze and head towards Eric’s factory. When they arrive, they see him carrying a box.
“What’s in the box?” Nazo asked.
“It’s the cure. You’re going to leave this place and take it with you,” Eric said.
“Who said were leaving? Were going to stay and fight.”
“I know how much you want to stay and fight, but you have to take this and leave. If you don’t and the Chimera destroys this place the cure will be lost.”
“He’s right Nazo. If they destroy this place, then the cure will be lost. If we take it and leave, we can bring the cure to some place that can mass produce it,” Ash said.
“We don’t know any place that can mass produce it,” Nazo said.
“I know a place. The capital of the Earth Kingdom, Ba Sing Se.”
“Isn’t that the biggest city in the world?” Aria asked.
“Yes it is. It’s also one of the safest cities in the world. You guys better go now,” Eric said.
“Are you coming with us?” Nazo asked.
“No, I’m staying. I won’t let my home be destroyed easily.”
“I guess this is good bye. I hope we can see each other again.”
“I hope so as well. Good bye my friends.” Nazo takes the box and the group flies away on Blaze. Eric turns towards the Chimera fleet and takes out his shotgun. He heads towards a group of men he knows, as Chimera troops land in the city.
“How many do you guys think were going to take out?” a man asked.
“I say about 20 thousand,” another man said.
“Lets just take out as many as we can,” Eric said. The group charged at a group of Chimera, shooting any Chimera in their path. They took cover from Chimera fire and wait for the Chimera to reload their guns. When they did, they jumped out of cover and kill the group of Chimeras. Then one of the men gets shot in the head and they take cover again. There was a Chimera sniper and they didn’t know where it was.
Eric decides that he needed to get in the line of fire to get the Chimera sniper to show its position. When the Chimera takes the shot, they will see where it came from. Eric got out of cover and started to look around. Then the Chimera fired a shot, but luckily the shot missed Eric and one of the men in the group was able to kill the Chimera. The group heard an explosion and saw a smoke cloud in the sky. They head towards it and end up in a huge firefight.
Earth benders made walls made of rock, to protect people from incoming fire. Cover became useless when Chimera Steel Heads join the fight. They had guns that could shoot through their cover. They had to get ride of those Steel Heads fast or they won’t have a chance. Eric then sees a group of people leave and thought they were cowards. A few moments later the group of people came behind the Chimera and started to take out the Steel Heads. One of the people was a fire bender and started to set most of the Chimera on fire. The group of Chimera was now stuck between two groups of people and were wiped out after a few minutes.
“You might want to duck,” Eric said to the fire bender. The fire bender ducks and Eric shoots a living Chimera in the head with his shotgun.
“You’re a good fighter,” the fire bender said.
“You’re a good fighter as well. I wonder what’s going to happen next.” The ground started to shake and the group looks up. They see a Goliath and it was heading their way. It was destroying everything in its path and helping groups of Chimera in firefights. “We need to take out that thing. If we don’t, then it’s going to be a long day.”
“Don’t worry we became prepared. We have fighter jets waiting to take it down.”
“That’s good to hear, but don’t forget that thing it protected by Stalkers. Those fighter jets will get shot down before they get close to it.”
“Then we have to take out the Stalkers first. We just need to get to them without groups of Chimera seeing us.”
“I think I know a way.” The groups of people go into the sewers. They didn’t like it, but they had no choice. They get out of the sewers and were very close to the Goliath. They see groups of Stalkers being protected by large groups of Chimera. As they get out of the sewers, they see groups of people about to attack. Soon the area around the Goliath became a big war zone. People and Chimera were getting shot, Stalkers getting destroyed and the Goliath crushing people with its big feet. After fighting for a long time, there was only one stalker left protecting the Goliath.
There was one problem though. The group was out of rockets and the remaining Chimera were getting closer. The fire bender gave Eric a radio and took out something.
“What are you doing?” Eric asked.
“I’m going to blow that Stalker. When I do, order the air strike,” the fire bender said.
“Are you crazy? Your going to get yourself killed.”
“I know I will, but I don’t care. I’m doing this for my home and it’s people.” The fire bender ran towards the Stalker. She was getting shot at by Chimera and was hit in the leg, just as she got to the stalker. As groups of Chimera came up to her, she activated a bomb on her chest. The bomb killed her, the groups of Chimera and destroyed the last stalker. Eric called in the air strike and the fighter jets were able to take out the Goliath.
People began to cheer as the Goliath fell to the ground. They thought they were going to win, but that all changed when more Chimera ships arrived. Soon more Goliaths came and Chimera fighter jets were taking out any fighter jet that they were sending out. Eric knew it was going to be a long day.
As the battle was going on, the group was flying towards Ba Sing Se. It was going to take a few days and the group was not happy about leaving the city of Helghan. They didn’t want the Chimera to take over another powerful city. Nazo looked at Mia and knew something was bothering her.
“Are you okay?” Nazo asked.
“It’s my father. I don’t know if he’s doing okay or not,” Mia said.
“I’m sure he’s doing fine. He’s probably wondering where you are.”
“Your right about that. He’s always worrying about me. I’m more worried about him. I don’t want to lose him the way I lost my mother.”
“Don’t think about it. You’ll just worry more.”
“Nazo I have to ask you something.”
“What is it?”
“If my father died, then I will become the next leader of the Fire Nation. Well that’s if we defeat the Chimera.”
“What are you going with this?”
“I don’t think I’m ready to be a leader. Will you be by my side?” Nazo was shocked by this question. He wasn’t sure what to say, but he had to say something.
“I’ll think about it.”
“Did she just ask you, what I think she just asked you?” Ash asked
“Ash that is none of your business,” Aria said. Mia laid her head on Nazo’s lap and closed her eyes. Nazo looked up at the sky and started to think. He knew what she meant by my side. He wasn’t sure if he could be by her side, since he’s the Avatar. He had to keep the world in balance. He started to close his eyes and went to sleep. After a few days of traveling the group arrives at Ba Sing Se. They went trough the checkpoints and were allowed inside the city.
At Helghan, Eric is the only one standing. He was surrounded by Chimera and he was running low on ammo. He kept killing Chimera with his shotgun in till his ammo ran out. He picked up a Chimera Bullseye gun and continued to kill Chimera. Soon his gun ran out of ammo and he took out his sword. He charged at the Chimera and slicing them in half. One Chimera knocked him to the ground and kicked the sword out of hi hand. Eric grabbed the Chimera’s leg and thrown it to the ground. More Chimera came and soon Eric was overwhelmed. A chimera pinned him down and aimed it’s gun at him. Eric looked at the Chimera in the eyes and closed his eyes. The Chimera shot him in the head and it looked at the sky. Helghan had fallen to Chimera control.
