This chapter starts near the end of 'Bato of the Water Tribe'. I hope you enjoy.
Keeping your head held high, keeping confident in yourself, and keeping courage during hard times is so much easier when it's not you. I have a gift that is not common and great, or so I thought.
I was banished from my home and nation. I'm hated by others because of my nation. But I guess thats just how it is when your a Fire Nation witch.
Crashes, screams, and blows of wind just then exploded from outside catching my attention and drawing me to the open window. Out in the courtyard I was surprised to see a Shirshu and a Bison!
From behind me came a flash of light and heat. As I turned I saw that my ceiling was on fire! Quickly grabbing my bag I fled the room.
"Superior whats..." I began but she interrupted with an order. "Quick go get me the pale green jar from the my shelf!"
I nodded before running off.
I returned with the jar and handed it to Superior who used the herbs to revive to Water Tribe teens. They started to plan some kind of attack using the perfume. I looked to see whom they were referring to. Of course,I signed, a fire bender.
I turned walking back to my room. On my when I heard someone yell," Look Out!" And Superior screamed as I felt myself being wiped backward across the courtyard. Then hitting the ground with a groan of pain.
The Shirshu must have gone wild because of the water bender's perfume attack. I watched from the ground as the Shirshu fleed the abbey and the others came to help me.
"Oh my goodness are you ok," asked the water bender, "do you need me to heal you?"
"No, let me." Then I mutter a spell under my breath. Closing my eyes and taking a deep breath as the magic healed my body.
"Wow how did you that," asked a young bald monk of about 12. He wore air benders cloths and had air bender tatoos.
"Well I'm a witch." I sat up slowly as not to hurt myself.
"Na your not bad." "Sokka! She means that she's a magical witch," the water bender said and crossed arms. Both Sokka and the water bender wore Water Tribe cloths with dark brown hair and blue eyes. Sokka's hair was pulled back into a high ponytail while the water bender's was in a long braid down her back.
All three of them were staring at me in disbelief so I crossed my legs and held out my hand. In my palm appeared a swirling spiral of air. They grasped and I smiled. Then creating it into water, next earth, and finally a little flame. I smiled slightly more at the flame before extinguishing it.
"Wow that was amazing," exasperated the monk.
"So um whats your name," asked the teen called Sokka.
"You three finish please," I asked them relaxed.
"Aang," he said with a small bow.
"Katara," she smiled.
"Sokka," he nodded at me.
"Well then Aang, Katara, and Sokka my name is Kalin," I said secretly hoping that where I was from was irrelevant to them.
"Kalin, thats a pretty name," Katara smiled.
I smiled back. Seeing Sokka with my bag made me just a bit nerves. "So you were planning on going where exactly," he asked. I signed, "I don't know." "Where are you from," Sokka asked next. Oh well of course he just had to asks the dreaded question. I looked down a moment before asking, "Please let me finish before you accuse me of anything."
"That means you Sokka," Katara looked at him. He nodded.
Ok, lets get this over with. "I was born in the... in the Fire Nation," they said nothing so I continued, "I had two friends and one best friend. When I was 11 I revealed my magical abilities to my best friend. His sister saw and turned me in for being able to 'bend' earth. That night I was banished and shipped to the Earth Kingdom.
In a coastal village near were I'd arrived I met another girl who had magical abilities just like me. Her name was Frena. Together we traveled around looking for stories about magic and people like use. We spent an adventurous two years together before coming to this abbey. While here Frena became ill. The ladies try to help her but that night she passed. She was the only one who didn't mind me being from the Fire Nation.
And well I've been here for at least a year now. So I guessed it must be time for me to leave, to travel again."
I looked at them silently begging them to understand like Frena did.
"Your from the Fire Nation? I am Prince Zuko of the Fire Nation. It's your duty to help me," yelled someone behind me. I turned to see a plump and friendly looking old man in Fire Nation cloths. Laying on him was a young woman in black cloths. Her hair was black ,her face was caked with black and she had a tatoo of a snake on her shoulder. She must have owned the Shirshu. Then I saw the so called Prince Zuko in the Fire Nation uniform. His black hair up in a high ponytail and his amber eyes glared at me.
Prince Zuko yelled," Did you not hear me peasant!"
"No, I heard you but will not obey. I am loyal to the Avatar for he is one of use all." I stood up. I have pale skin ,blue-green eyes with a hint of Fire Nation amber, and my dark brown hair is to my shoulders. My hair also has three pure black streaks on the right side. I wore brown baggy pant with a deep purple robe ( my Fire Nation robe died with blue). My left arm is bandaged from my wrist to mid arm.
Prince Zuko yelled at me in response.
"Hey stop that," Sokka yelled back," She is a part of are team and together we'll defeat the Fire Nation." I turned to Sokka with a smile and he nodded. Yes oh yes and thank you.
"Why you little traitor," hissed Prince Zuko.
"Why do you think I was banished."
