Return to Omashu

A/N I will be skipping the Cave of Two Lovers.

Aang looks out at Omashu. The red Fire Nation flag waving in the wind. A bold red flag bearing the Fire Nation insignia is proudly hung; gray plumes of smoke fill the air surrounding the fallen city.

"I can't believe it. I know the War has spread far, but Omashu always seemed...untouchable." Aang said

"Up until now it was. Now Ba Sing Se is the only great Earth Kingdom stronghold left." Sokka said

"This is horrible, but we have to move on." Katara said

" No, I'm going to find Bumi." Aang said

"Who is Bumi?" I asked

"The king." Katara said

"Aang, stop. We don't even know if Bumi's still..." Sokka trailed off

"What? If he's still what?" Aang asked

"A-around." Sokka said

"I know you had your heart set on Bumi, but there are other people who can teach you earthbending." I said

"This isn't about finding a teacher. This about finding my friend." Aang said

We are below Omashu's gat where Aang is attempting to open the entrance to a secret tunnel.

"A secret passage? Why didn't we just use this last time?" Sokka asked

Aang open the tunnel, revealing it to be filled with sewage.

"Ugh" Sokka asked

"That answer your question?" I asked

"Eeww." Sokka said

We proceed through the tunnel to the inside of Omashu. Aang conjures an air ball with his staff to clear the path while Katara uses waterbending to maneuver the sewage carefully around her. Sokka, on the other hand, is continually soaked in the foul substance. I freeze it and walk on it instead of through it.

"That wasn't as bad as I thought." Katara said

Sokka emerges covered in slime. I climb out behind him and walk over by Katara. Katara spots water nearby and splashes Sokka with it using waterbending to wash off the sewage followed by Aang who uses airbending to dry him off while he scream which reveals that three pentapi have attached themselves to his skin.

"Ahh! They won't let go. Help." Sokka yells

Aang quickly tackles Sokka into a wall in order to silence him, in a somewhat cheerful tone.

"Shh! Stop making so much noise. It's just a purple pentapus." Aang said

Sokka looks at the pentapus in fear. Aang removes the first pentapus by lightly rubbing its head as Sokka watches. Sokka rubs the spot where the creature was attached, and does the same procedure to get the second one off. Several guards suddenly approach them as Aang takes the third one off.

"Hey! What are you kids doing out past curfew?" the guard asked

"Sorry. We were just on our way home." Katara said

We turn to walk away, with Sokka bringing up the rear. The guard notices the red welts on the back of Sokka's neck.

"Wait, what's the matter with him?" Guard two asked

"Uh, he has pentapox, sir. It is highly contagious." I said

"Oh, it's so awful. I'm dying." Sokka said
