Disclaimer: I do not own Avatar or Dragon Ball Z, even though i REALLY wish I did.
The night was silent and the air was heavy with grief. Appa seemed to be able to understand what we were feeling, and flew on without guidance. I was staring off into the distance, to the waves below, but I could hardly see anything.
The darkness was complete and my heart felt heavy. I was trying to keep myself from crying. Breathing was the only thing I could concentrate on. I was trying to forget, keep myself distracted. Ya, trying to forget.
Trying to forget my best friend for what felt like years although it had really only been a few months or a year. Trying to forget his goofy grin, his laugh. Trying to forget all the things we had done together. Trying to forget his burned, charred body…
Suddenly something bright appeared in the sky. It got brighter as it came closer. It left a trail of fire behind it, and whatever it was appeared circular. It was coming right at us for a little while, but I was to shocked at its sudden appearance to say anything.
"What's up Katara? What are you staring at?" Toph asked. I ignored her and continued to stare at the fiery orb, coming closer every second. Toph didn't like this.
"Seriously Katara, what are you staring at?" This statement captured the others attention, and out of the corner of my eye I saw the other three people turn their heads toward the object. We all stared at it, completely oblivious to any of Toph's further questions.
The giant orb of fire came closer. None of us had the sense to try to steer Appa out of the way. It was probably a good thing too. The object began to curve a few yards away from us, and finally it zipped past Appa's head. All of us let out a yell and "fell" backwards from our kneeling positions. We all, except for Toph, rushed over to the other side of Appa's saddle to watch the object's descent. As we watched the orb crashed down into some ground above a beach and kicked up so much dirt that we couldn't see anything for an almost two minutes. When the dirt cleared we saw a lopsided crater in the ground with the orb in the exact center.
"Wow," said Sokka, breaking the silence. "What is that?"
"I don't know," answered Zuko stupidly. No one spoke for a while, and during this time I stared at the crash site. A feeling of necessity hit me after a short time, and I realized that I felt a sudden need to check it out. I guess I was just curious.
"We have to go down there," I said.
"What!?" two people replied.
"We have to go down there," I stated before jumping on Appa's head, and taking the reins, began to guide him towards the object, not belching up smoke.
"Why?" asked Zuko.
"We need to check it out," I replied.
"There's no point!" cried Sokka.
"We just need to."
"That, is not a good reason," answered Sokka.
"I…I think someone is down there," said Suki, her voice shaking a bit.
"Ya, I think some might be down there," agreed Toph confidently.
"Then we're agreed." I say before Appa begins his decent to the crash site.
As they approached the crash site they could see where the spherical object had landed. The object had made a deep impression on the hill of sand. The object was lying in the exact center of the impression.
The object was pod shaped and mostly white colored. There was a small circular window in between two lines, which appeared to be cracks, running parallel to each other that went up most of the pod. The pod was not smoking anymore.
"What do you think it is?" asked Sokka entranced. No one had an answer that would make any sense. Katara noticed that the group had positioned themselves in a half circle around what they could only guess was front to the pod.
"Do you think anything is in there?" asked Suki.
Suddenly the pod started to hiss, and smoke started to come out of the cracks in the pod. The top of the pod began to come down, along what had at first glance they thought were cracks. The pod opened, but some smoke prevented anyone from being able to see what was inside. Out from the smoke appeared a foot.
The foot was followed by a hand, which grabbed the outside of the pod, and next came a head. The face was normal in appearance, but the eyes were a blue green and there was a thin scar on the cheek. He also had a small amount of hair, kind of like a goatee, growing on his chin. His hair was short and brown, and it did not cover his neck or any part of his face. A curious device was worn over his right eye, and looped around his right ear.
The man stood a little under six feet tall. He wore what seemed to be body armor that only covered his upper body and his groin. His legs and arms were bear, and he wore a furry belt around his waist.
He lifted his hand slowly, and everyone jumped into a fighting stance. His hand stopped for a moment, and he grinned before touching a button on the device located just in front of his ear. It clicked and beeped, and a circle appeared on the eye piece with some foreign writing flashing around it. It flashed five times before it stopped. A grin appeared on the man's face.
"Hello, my name is Saru and I'm here to conquer this planet."
