The Lonely Recluse
Through a dark haze, a faint light greeted his vision. He opened his eyes fully, and found that he was gazing at the sky. The bright blue heavens bore pale downy clouds drifting peacefully above him. He sat up, spying a vast field of lush green grass and flowers swaying back and forth in the soft wind, and it came into view perfectly from up on the hill where he was sitting.
Behind him, he saw a tall, sturdy tree occupying the center of the hill, its lovely green leaves rustling in the soothing wind. A rather young woman, slender, with long, flowing russet hair, leaned against the trunk. So beautiful was s

The once persistent blind earthbender was finally caving in and losing hope. With the barely four-year-old standing before her, nervously obeying her orders while blindfolded with a piece of cotton cloth wrapped around her head tightly, training her each day for months on end without progress, she began to grow frustrated.
