Ok, so here is the 13th chapter of Ozai High. First of all thanks to all of my reviewers! Umm..I also want to thank one reviewer specifically for telling me to update since I tell you guys to review. So thank you: Avagrl-kataang-lova. Also as of request, I will make this chapter longer. Enjoy!
I could not believe what had just happen. I fell into a trap, and a deadly one at that. I was terrified, but not for me, I knew that Aang would just try to be the hero and sacrifice himself. And that would definitely not happen. That was my top priority. My second was to escape…alive.
As I plotted how to get away from Zuko, I remembered that Yue was still here. She was in the corner being held back by one of Zuko's friends and she looked terrified.
I struggled to get out of Zuko's grip. "Stop struggling! Or I shall kill you right now, followed by your friend." He said grimly.
I stopped, "I'll go willingly if you let her go." I gestured over to Yue. The others were forced to go back outside while Zuko left. He had his friend take Yue away from Sokka as well.
"You're in no position to bargain."
"That may be true, but if you don't let her go, there will be twice as many people looking to kill you." I spat.
He looked over to his friend and motioned to him to let her go. I could hear my friends outside. They were not going to come in; they wanted to make sure that we weren't going to be harmed. Yue ran to the door when she was let go.
She was crying and before she opened the door, she gave me one last look. It was grateful, hopeful, and terrified all at the same time. I got one last glance of her running to collapse in Sokka's arms and my friend's faces before I was taken away.
I felt tremendously guilty for letting Katara be held hostage. I was right by her and I couldn't stop it from happening. I didn't dare go in, for fear of Zuko hurting her. My only choice was to do what he said.
I looked up when I heard the door open. Yue ran out crying. She jumped into Sokka's open arms and I swear I saw him tear up a little. I was happy she was ok, but not nearly as happy as I would've been if Katara was safe.
"Are you ok?" I heard Sokka ask Yue.
She was still crying but managed to say a small "yes". When she calmed down she told us what happened.
"I tried to tell you guys. They came to my house right after you guys called to see if it was ok to come over. I managed to get away from Zuko's friend for a minute long enough to call, but it was too late. I tried to tell Katara to not come in, but she didn't understand because Zuko grabbed my wrist and through the phone at the wall." She sniffled a little and held up her burnt wrist. Sokka gave her a reassuring hug.
"You guys, I'm gonna turn myself in.." I stated.
Toph, Sokka, and Yue looked at me like I was crazy. "What, are you crazy?" Toph asked.
Sokka looked up, "I know she's my baby sister, but I know that she can take care of herself. Why don't we give her time to get out before pulling some crazy stunt?"
I sighed. "I will wait a few hours, but if she's not back by dark, I'm going. And there's nothing that'll stop me." I said firmly. Katara tried to tell me not to, but I care for her too much.
The others didn't agree but they weren't going to fight. Now was the hard part. Now I had to wait.
The next thing I knew, I was in a cell. It was dark, both inside and out. There were two guards by the door, and the only thing that lit my view was a small lantern. I started plotting my escape. I walked up to the guards.
"So, how'd you end up working here?" I casually asked one.
They ignored me. Time for the second attempt. "Ok.. then.. will you at least tell me which one of you is better at guarding? I want to know which of you could actually attempt to keep me from getting out."
This time I got a response. The first guard started to say something, "That's an easy one.." he said.
Then he and the second guard simultaneously said, "I am!" and "Hey!" right after the first part. They started arguing about who was better.
The conversation was something like: "You dare deny that I am a better guard?" and later, "Don't drag my mother into this!" I didn't really listen.
Instead, I grabbed the key from one's belt, unlocked the door and snuck away. Now was the hard part. I was all out of water, so I ran. I just ran and ran.
Guards were chasing me, but I was too hard to catch. I ran through rooms, and hallways, and past a ton more guards. I did escape the jail property but guards were still gaining.
I wasn't that far from where I lived, and I did the only thing that I could think of doing. I yelled. I figured someone would hear me.
Especially with Aang having good hearing, if the guys were close, then they could help. "Aang! AANG!" They had to be somewhere close. I just had to figure out where.
I started losing hope when I could barely feel my feet anymore.
I tripped over a rock suddenly and felt my face hit the cold, hard rock. I tried to get up, but I was exhausted. I don't know how long I was running.
It could've been only minutes, but I didn't stop and it seemed like hours.
The next thing I knew I felt a firm grip pull me up into a familiar pair of arms and jump high into the air. "Aang!" I shouted with relief as I hugged him.
He smiled, still holding me, "Glad to see you too." He jumped a couple of roof tops and then we disappeared out of all guard's view.
He sat me down one a rooftop, out of site, and sat down next to me. Then, before he could say anything, I kissed him. I kissed him full on the lips, underneath the star-filled sky.
Aww, look I even added a bigger kataangy part. There will be more soon. Plz review to find out: What Aang's thoughts are, where the rest of the gang is, and what will happen next! Thx again! Will update soon!
