Aang turned his head toward the ground. "Zuko, I understand about your mom and everything, but in return for giving me this gash in my leg, you have to do your best to protect Katara." Zuko nodded in approval.
Zuko spent the night at the Gaang's house, minutes of sleep seeming like hours. Katara revived from unconsciousness while Aang stayed awake, right beside her, ensuring her safety. "Aang what's going on " she asked, voice quiet and weak from exhaustion. "We know why Zuko attacked you. It's not his fault, and it's not yours. It's Azula," he said, moving his eyes to Katara's, giving her a look of combined emotions: stress, anger, despair, and utter confidence. Katara gave Aang a look of confusion and fury; thinking that she was done with Azula once and for all last week. "What does she want?" she asked, shifting into a sitting position, arms slung over her legs. "Revenge," he finished, not saying a word until morning.
The air in the house was thick with pressure and nervou

Sokka woke with a start. "Suki Suki did you hear that?" He sat up, looking suspiciously at the door. "Huh ? What did you hear?" she said tiredly, rubbing her eye. "I don't know my instincts tell me that something's up. I'm gonna go check," he said, moving his legs off the bed and grabbing his crutch.
He thumped out into the hallway. Remembering that Zuko was acting funny towards Katara, Sokka started to look for her. She wasn't in the main room, not in her room, and when he realized that Katara was nowhere to be found, he limped as fast as he could back to his and Suki's room. "Katara's missing!"
Suki shot out of bed and woke Toph. Sokka went into Aang's room and started to ask him about what happened to her. "When did she talk to you last?" he asked, leaning against the wall next to Aang's bed. "She was just telling me goodnight like ten minutes ago! I bet it was Zuko," Aang accused angrily, clenching his fist and tensing up his eyebrows. Suki walked into the door and T

"Make me," Zuko said darkly, kicking Katara onto the ground. Immediately Aang shot Zuko into the water with a blast of air. Aang looked at Katara to see if she was hurt, when she screamed, "AANG!!" A cold, sharp blade dug into his leg, making him fall to the ground, his tattoos fading. Katara angrily grabbed him with her bending and froze him where he stood. She went over to look at the stab wound in his left thigh. Zuko firebended himself out of the ice and ran back into the forest, not saying a word.
Wondering what got into Zuko, she took out her bending water and began to heal his leg. She took a deep breath, and the water glowed with a blue light. She waited until the wound was no longer critical, and decided to walk back to camp. She made a stair-like formation out of the water from the ocean, and climbed up the ice onto the top of the back wall. It took much longer than she thought to get back to the campsite, having traveled from it with airpower. She got back, and noticed that

The flight to the designated camp site was beautiful- Ba Sing Se glowing with a lantern effect, the night sky filled to the brim with stars scattered like glitter, the galaxy's purple dust adding to the atmosphere. The cool air of high elevation blew lightly past them as Aang looked for the location to set up.
"I think I've found where we're gonna be camping!" he informed everyone, and Appa slowly swooped down onto the dark, sandy soil. The flight took about a half an hour, but it seemed like five minutes, for everyone was lost in the cosmos. Each person made an assembly line formation, passing supplies person to person until everything was unpacked, letting Appa go about thirty feet away to lay down. Everyone had set up their tents, earth tents and sleeping bags within the first three minutes, leaving Katara and Suki to set up a campfire and start cooking.
Toph sat lazily in her earth tent, Sokka sat back on his sleeping bag, his placed side by side with Suki's,
