I screamed when I saw Tenzin with a bloody burn on his arm. It was red and it streaked all the way down to his hands.
"Katara!! Micheal!!" I screamed with eyes wide and my aching belly that was full of what i call fear.
Micheal ran in with soaked blond hair and blue swim trunks. "What happen-" But he stopped speaking as he looked at Tenzin. He immediately jumped down and began to heal the minor burns on his face. Katara ran in as well and began healing the gigantic burn on his arm.
I sat there, sad that I couldn't do anything. Sad I hadn't gotten the water bending power to heal. Which most do. I felt like a failure. I ran out and got Aang and Toph instead.
"What do you want?" Toph asked half rude half joking. I caught my breath for a moment.
"Tenzin got burned!" I finally said. Toph stared at me for a moment then grabbed her husbands hand.
Toph jumped to Tenzin's side. "Not now.." She whispered. She began crying. Aang came down to comfort her. Takani slowly walked in. I turned to look at her and you could see her eyes starting to water. And she ran out.
After of about a half an hour later when we sat Tenzin on the couch Katara and Zuko's family went home. And no one seemed to notice my twin sister was gone. Except for me.
"Sydney?" I called out when I went upstairs. No answer came but the tired cry of Jason in his room. I looked all over realizing that I knew something they all didn't know. They all cared about Tenzin. And not for the avatar. For Sydney. For my twin.
After running down stairs I screamed, "Sydney's gone!!"
Micheal sighed. "I know." He said. "I just read Tenzin's mind. He was going to the bathroom and he passed Sydney on his way she was being captured by some weird man with red eyes and when Tenzin tried to save her the man burned him."
"We have to go find her!!" I said impatiently as I began packing a bag.
My father got up from his chair. "No Sam. Us adults will go. You and Micheal will care for Tenzin. Zach can go babysit Takani while Eli takes care of Lillian and Jason."
I stomped my foot. "I DON'T CARE!! She's my twin sister and I am going to come help!!"
Micheal got up. "I am too. I'm her protector and now I have failed. I will go as well."
My dad looked confused. "But who will take care of Tenzin here?"
I answered, "Katara will Dad. And you need work! And anyway if Katara is taking care of Tenzin someone needs to care for Dishi. Mom can take care of him. Aang and Toph need to stay with Tenzin as well. Kayla, Kya, Micheal, Eli and I will go save Sydney."
"What about me?" Whispered Lillian as she came downstairs in her pj's.
"No Lilly. We are going. You stay here." She pouted and went back upstairs.
Micheal looked at me. "Okay then. Lets get going."
I pulled on a blue jacket over my black t-shirt. I stuffed some supplies in my bag. "Ready Micheal?" I asked him after he walked through the door back from his house. It was 5 a.m. the sun was barely out.
He nodded. We got Kayla and Kya from there house. Micheal grabbed Kayla in a twirl hug.
"Okay lets go." Kya smiled.
We grabbed our bikes and began riding down a bike path through the forest. Micheal led the way. He had read May's mind as well so he knew where to go find their hiding place.
"Where are we going!!" Kya asked from the back of our bike line.
"Its a warehouse down hidden in this forest!!" Micheal yelled behind him.
After a long bike ride Micheal stopped. He locked his bike to a tree and we all did the same. "We're almost there, but I don't want to make an entrance. Lets sneak in." He said. With Kayla's hand in Micheal's we began our little hike down a brown hiking path. It winded around the trees like a roller coaster.
I looked around. The trees were extremely tall and there were lots of different bushes and plants on the ground.
Suddenly Micheal stopped. He put a finger to his lips.
"Why'd you stop!!" Eli said extremely loud. I smacked his mouth. "Sshh..." I whispered. Micheal pointed to a black figure walking by us.
He was tall and you could see he had a small fire in his hands for light.
"I'm guessing this 'league' thingy is a gang of fire benders." Kya whispered.
Micheal nodded his head like she was correct. We could take these guys. Three water benders, a fire bender, and an earth bender? Yea, we could definitely take them.
Once the man passed we began walking again. Actually, it was more like quietly running. Finally we reached a brick wall.
Micheal smiled. "We're here."
We had to beat a few guys up but we made it through the back door. We began walking through a pure white hallway. It reminded me of being at a hospital. If we moved to fast our shoes would make a squeak sound.
Micheal motioned for us to g through a big blue door.
"Are you sure?" I whispered to him. He nodded. Okay then.
Eli slowly turned the nob to the door. We each held our breathe, awaiting something purely horrible.
