Long ago there was a time where benders roamed. A time where The Avatar, master of many, took on the duty of saving the world. What are benders you ask? Well you will just be amazed at what we can do. My mom once told me a story of the most crazy adventure she took and one amazing boy she met. For all we know he may still be out there, but one thing I know there are more avatars out there, and I will find them.

Hi I'm Kiro, the Earthbender. I am fourteen years old, and I was born in the Earth Kingdom of Ba Sing Se. I always thought The Avatar Cycle was broken; until I met a girl that changed my life. It all started on one sunny day in the Ba Sing Se. My friend Kasai and I were playing hide-and-go seek up by the caves. While we were playing we heard a loud squeal. We were frightened when we heard the noise, so we ran back to our huts. The next day we decided to go back to the caves, and figure out whom or what was making that noise. That day we heard the noise again, so I decided instead of running back home to go into the cave where the noise was coming from. When we went inside the cave it was really dark, but there was a light source coming from the back of the cave. We decided to walk in to see what or who the light was coming from. At first we thought it was just some Earth Nation miner, but then suddenly Kasai ran into a large, slippery seal. He screamed and the giant seal thing squealed really loud. "Who's there," said a voice from the back of the cave. I said, "It is I Kiro, of Ba Sing Se." The voice said," come closer." I scooted forward a little, and ran into a girl that looked about the same age as me, cute, tall, and thin. She looked at me with a smug smile and said," What do you want." That's when I heard a scream. I turned around, only to see a Giant Polar Penffin and Kasai.

I looked at the huge animal; it looked about 7 feet tall. I saw Kasai on the animal's back. The girl walked over to the Penffin and said, "Nashi drop him." The animal dropped Kasai, and he landed with a loud thud. Kasai got up and ran towards me. He looked really scared; he looked at me, and jolted out of the cave. I followed him out the cave. On my way out I turned and looked at the girl; she looked like she needed help. When we were out of the cave Kasai ran back to his house. I stood there at the cave exit and took one good look at it, knowing I would come back tomorrow.

The next day I woke up really early and got dressed into my normal outfit, green shorts and a green sleeveless shirt. Careful not to wake anyone I was on my way to the caves; Kasai woke up and asked me where I was going. I told him into town to get supplies for our family. He looked at me with a puzzled look on his face and said, "It's too early to be going into town. I couldn't come up with another lie, so I had to confess. Before I could tell him where I was really going; He said, "Your going back to see that girl and her monster back up by the caves." I looked at him to see he was a bright red and blowing steam out his ears. "I couldn't resist it, and I really wanted to see her again," I said. He looked at me," Why would you want to go back there to see that cave woman and her pet." I turned, walked away, and was on my way to the caves. When I got up to the entrance of the cave I walked in, and bumped into the girl. "You again," the girl said. I could see her pretty face in the light, and she was really cute.

"Are you just going to sit there and stare?"

"Oh, I was staring."


"I came to talk to you."

"Why do you need to talk to me?"

"Well, uh I just wanted to ask you a few questions."

"Like what?"

"Uh…what's your name?"

She looked at me with a disgusted look," Hatana."

I smirked.

"What's so funny," she said with a confused look on her face.

I smiled and said," Nothing."

"What else do you want to ask me," she said.

"Why do you live in a … cave,"

She turned her head away from me.

"Oh, sorry was it something I said."

"No, It's just... Oh, never mind."

"No, what is it," I said.

She looked at me with her big brown eyes and said," I grew up without a mother or a father. I was all alone; I had to teach myself how to cook, clean, and how to do everything else. Are you happy now?"

"Wow!" I said.

"What are you going to do now, laugh at me?"

"No, I was wondering if you wanted to….Uh….stay in my hut. "

"Uh…I don't know…if your parents would like me there. And where would Nashi stay?"

I told her about the shed we have in our backyard, and after a while of convincing her she finally said yes. When I got home I told my parents about Hatana and how she had no family or home. My parents said yes immediately.

Well, Hatana spent the night at my house and the next day I figured out something about her that was unbelievable.
