Suki ducked a blast of fire, spinning and kicking out at her firebender assailant.

Behind her, Katara, Zuko, Aang, and Sokka atatcked firebenders of their own.


The only person she had ever liked, the only person that completed her.

Out of the corner of her eye, she saw a firebender rush out of a tunnel behind her.

She blocked the attacker in front of her, then kicked at the one behind her.

Big mistake.

The firebender caught her foot, then brought his arm down on her leg, snapping it with a loud crack.

Suki screamed, and Sokka's attention was instantly diverted to her.

"SUKI!" He yelled, punching his attacker out, then running to help her.

Suki cried out in pain as the bender in front of her threw her to the ground, then took her arm, dragging her down the hall with the help of the other firebender.

Then, the bender behind Katara took her momentary distraction and hit her on the head, knocking her out and throwing her over his shoulder.

"NO!" Aang yelled, following Sokka.

Zuko and Toph looked at each other, then followed the rest of the gang.

Sokka had almost reached the cave opening when he saw an earth bender step out of it and smirk at him.


It was too late.

The earthbender closed off the cave, leaving Sokka to only pound hopelessly against the stone.

Aang slid to a stop behind him.

"That is one big wall"

Indeed it was.

Aang tried to shift it, grunting with the effort.

"Toph! Come over-"

He was interrupted by a scream.


TOph was sinking into the floor, pulled by an earthbender from below.

Zuko was pulling on one of her arms, but it was no use.

"Toph, bend yourself out!"

"I can't! they have my feet!" She squealed, tears pricking her eyes.

Then she was gone.

Sokka, Aang and Zuko looked at each other, all thinking the same thing, but only Aang dared to say it.

"What are we gonna do without the girls?"

Sokka banged his head against the rock wall.

"We're doomed"

Meanwhile, in their underground cell, the girls were thinking the same thing.
