Ms Joo Dee took the next week off of work. Rumour amongst the students was that she was taking a trip to a psychiatric hospital near Lake Laogai after being informed of Mr Long Feng's death. With two teachers missing from the school, classes were chaotically organized and supervised by whichever other teachers were free. A group of police officers came through the school and asked every teacher the same question, which several students caught wind of. "Do you know which students were closely acquainted with Azula?" The teachers, no longer fearful of her presence, were quick to point to the students they'd known to interact with her regularly, including the boys who had been involved in a scuffle with Zuko the week before, which had landed him in detention. The students indicated were taken away for questioning for possible knowledge or involvement in Red Army activity. Rumour had it that the students would be arrested and prosecuted if found guilty of involvement.

When the police finished their questioning, Dr Pakku had Suki move Zuko to a ward. He rubbed his wrists where the handcuffs had sat and was glad to be rid of them, even if he was forced to be transported by wheelchair. "It's just how it works in hospitals. We don't ask sick and injured patients to walk when we have the ability to move them ourselves," she said, somewhat indignantly. Zuko didn't answer her as she wheeled him into a room with two beds. One bed was already occupied by a younger girl with short black hair.
"Suki, that you?"
"Hi Toph. How are you today?"
"The stinging has finally stopped. Can I come home soon?"
Zuko left the wheelchair and sat on the bed. The girl across the room gazed in his general direction with a frown. He realized with a small start that she was blind. Suki went over to her. "They're looking much better today. I'll get Dr Pakku to look at them again and he'll tell you if you can go home soon. I'm sorry the treatment didn't work, Toph.

Zuko pulled a package wrapped in a bin-liner out from underneath his jacket and thrust it into her grasp, hoping that it was the decoy. Her smirk confirmed what he suspected would happen next. Azula spun around as she ran and raised the gun towards him. He stopped, knowing he'd never get out of the way in time. She pulled the trigger. The bang ripped through him and resounded down the corridor. The guards kept coming and Azula disappeared out of the shattered window, before he'd even hit the ground.
As the guards rushed past him, Zuko rolled to one side and unzipped his jacket. His breath hitched in his throat as he peeled the package wrapped in bin-liner from his chest. The bullet had torn through the thick confidential folder and embedded itself somewhere in the right side of his chest. It pained him to breathe and a dizzying sensation beg

"Dad and I want your help. We need to find as much information about King Kuei as we can and relay it to him. I've already made a start, but there are some files up in the palace that I want to get my hands on and I can't do it on my own."
"Where is she, Azula? What have you done to her?"
She faced him again. "That's for me to know, Brother. All you need to know is this: Tonight, midnight, I will be waiting in the abandoned underground market, at the entrance near the public section of the royal gardens. If you meet me there and agree to help me, I will let Jin go, unharmed."
Zuko said nothing for a moment. "And if I don't?"
She took one step back towards him. "You said it yourself. You know what I'm capable of. So, will I be seeing you there, or not?"
Katara looked at him thoughtfully. "What if one of the teachers is on her side?"
"You mean a mem

Katara sat picking her nails in the corner of the library after school. Laid out on the desk in front of her was a sketchbook, half-filled with random drawings; a mixture of the results of boredom and creativity, and the most recent edition which Ms Joo Dee deemed highly inappropriate. She had discovered Katara adding the final touches to an elaborate drawing of an army of men dressed in green. At the front of the group was the country's monarch, King Kuei. A title in thick black markers and sharp letters read "PUPPETS ON STRINGS". This daring political statement had angered Ms Joo Dee enough to deal Katara with an after school detention.
Whilst waiting for her supervised punishment to begin, Katara flicked through the book from the beginning and took in the different pictures, some half finished, some uncoloured, some in pencil, marker, pen She lingered for a moment on a picture she'd drawn of her friend Aang. He was sitting upright in a hospital bed smiling fro
