The world is spinning too fast, and this feeling is a feeling I feel too often. I watch as a house goes up in flames, and shield my eyes from the vibrant colors. So much is happening I don’t even notice a little girl holding onto my leg sobbing.
“W-what’s happening? I can’t find m-my family,” the child has to yell through the chaos. I can’t help but pity that boy, who’s in a similar situation as I was a few years back. My mind trails off. But a api ball nearly hitting me in the head brings me back to the matter at hand.
“It’s the api nation,” I begin, but then another api ball comes zooming at me and I have to bebek on the ground and do a summersault to keep from becoming toast. I realize if I stand here explaining to the girl who looks like she’s about four, we will be dead in a matter of seconds. I scoop up the little girl and head toward the forest about a mile ahead. I have only been there once atau twice, but for now it will be fine. I would rather be lost then dead.
“W-w- what are anda doing to me?” the girl began to scream and kick trying to freeing herself, making it a lot harder for me to run with her in my arms.
“I’m-,” but the girl interrupts me.
“You are from the api nation right? anda are gonna kill me and everyone else and-“
“You want to know the truth kid, I’m saving your life, and if it wasn’t for me, anda would be dead right now anda would have been. Just look at where we were standing before, I haven’t seen it because I’ve been too busy running anda to the forest to SAVE YOUR LIFE!”
The girl looks behind her as I told her to, gasps, and bursts into a whole new set of tears.
“So, what’s it like back there?” I know I’m torturing her but I’m beginning to get a cramp from running, not to mention I think I’m bleeding from one of the places she kicked me. It also didn’t help that she accused me of being api nation. Yup, I’m not in the best mood now.
“I-it’s terrible. anda were right we would have been dead. Thank you, for saving me.”
She gasps. “Oh, no what is it this time,” I think, “maybe she left her doll behind atau something stupid like that! Ugh”
“L-look, t-the api Nation, they are following us.”
“Well, duh otherwise I would have put anda down a long time ago. They are probably going on a conquering streak atau something. They probably are just going to burn down every town in their way. That’s why I’m bringing anda to the forest. They are only looks for villages. Now I’m gonna stop talking now ‘coz I’m running out of breath.”
“Ok. We are almost there though,” the girl says.
I finally made it to the forest and I feel like I’m gonna be sick. I’m dizzy and…and….and….
“Are anda ok?”
I wake up to the girl I rescued shaking me.
“What happened?” I ask rubbing my head which is throbbing.
“You saved my life when the api nation attacked our village, and anda brought me here, the forest, and then anda blacked out.”
“Oh yeah, I think I remember now. Flippin’ salamanders, how long have I been out for.”
“I don’t know it’s hard to keep track. Anyway I don’t think I introduced myself, I’m Zola.”
“Oh cool. I like your name. I’m Jane.”
“No offense but that’s the weirdest name I’ve ever heard of.”
“Tell me about it I had a sister named Olivia.”
“Oh, did anda have to leave her in the fire?”
“No, I had to leave her a long time ago.”
“Wh-“
“I’m sorry but, I don’t like to talk about it.”
“It’s ok I think my whole family is dead now.”
“Join the club. I know this is acak but how old are you?”
“Five. You?”
“Sixteen.”
“Cool. Wait, did anda hear that?”
“Yes,” I reply.
I look up and see the trees rustling and I can’t help but smile because I think I know what atau rather who it is. Suddenly, a girl drops down from the tree. She has long silver hair that hangs down her back and purple eyes much like my own.
“Jane!” the girl exclaimed.
“Joselyn!” I couldn’t help but scream.
Joselyn and I embraced each other.
“Why are anda here?” Joselyn asked.
“Fire nation.”
“Oh, holy crackers I’m sorry. Do anda need a place to stay, because anda can stay with me, Aang, Katara, and Sokka?”
“Flippin’ salamanders anda would do that for us? Oh I never introduced anda guys. Zola, this is my friend Joselyn. And Joselyn, this is Zola, a girl I rescued from the api nation.”
I walked with Joselyn and Zola to the campsite, where the rest of the gang was. Appa greeted me oleh licking my face. Everyone laughed.
“Are anda moving in here?” Katara asked.
“Katara!” I scream, and everyone automatically looks at me in a weird way. I blush and then continue. “It’s just I’ve never meet another waterbender before, and I need to master it. I mean I know how to waterbend but I’m not sure if I’m doing it right.”
“If anda want to learn how to are gonna have to stay awhile. How about anda stay here so anda can learn?”
“I-I would be honored.”
