Up From Flames
Water. Earth. Air. Fire. My grandmother used to tell me stories about the old days, a time of peace, when the Avatar kept balance between the Water Tribes, Earth Kingdom, Firenation, and Air Nomads. But all that changed when the Firenation attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop the ruthless firebenders. But when the world needed him most, he vanished. 100 years have passed, and the Firenation is nearing victory in the war. 2 years ago, my father and the men of my tribe went to help in the fight aginst the Firenation, leaving my brother to take care of the tribe. As for me, the Firenation caught wind of the fact that I showed signs of being a waterbender when I was 5. That was 10 years ago. I've been living in the Royal Palace in the Firenation capital, Sozin, and traveling with the prince ever since. Some people believe that the Avatar was never born into the Air Nomads, and that the cycle was broken. But I haven't lost hope. I still believe that somehow, the Avatar will return to save us all from the Firelord's wrath.
