Feiying was not a picky eater -he really wasn't- he just didn't like Water Tribe food, that was all. He made it a point to avoid the stuff, ever since he was ten; after what came to be known as “The Sea Prune Incident”. But, both his grandfather and Jiayi had nothing but praise for Narook's Seaweed Noodlery, so it couldn't be too bad. Besides, he would be living in Republic City for the next four years, this was the perfect opportunity to broaden his horizons. The young firebender thought this was an excellent plan, and swore to see it through. And since Jiayi had been to Narook's with her family before, he decided to let her order for the two of them, another good idea on his part.
That being said, once the food arrived, he felt his resolve waver and immediately regretted his decision. He didn't know if it was because she technically lost their wager, or she was still bitter about him not showing up at the docks that morning. But either way, she

"Well, son of a poodle-pony..."
Feiying scanned the crowd gathering in front of him, and nervously hissed through his teeth. From the tiny city children sitting on their parents' shoulders or clinging nervously to their pant legs, to the older folks, looking at him with harsh glares; all eyes were trained on him, curious to see his act. More importantly, he could see that many were just as impatient as well. Feiying silently moved his mouth, desperate to find something to say and looked over the crowd again, before choosing to mutter a few curses under his breath. He had always suspected that with Pro-bending's popularity, some people in Republic City would consider the traditional bending styles as exotic, long-lost arts. But, he had no idea there would be this many. The young firebender clenched his fists, Grandpa Baiying always told him one of the best things a man could do was be honest with himself, regardless of circumstances. And, if he was; he would have ac

He made it.
It had taken him a few hours to get there; a quick snack, several near misses with oncoming Satomobiles and many, many wrong turns; but, Feiying finally made it to Central City Station. Feiying took a deep breath and smiled, taking everything in; the people taking lazing around on the plaza's many benches, taking breaks from their jobs, the street performers performing their acts, trying to make some quick yuan, the sounds of city traffic around him mingling with the loud calls of hawkers selling their wares. Even now, he still couldn't believe he was in Republic City, in the midst of everything. And nothing, not even the screams of a fighting group of children could spoil this moment.
Feiying whipped his head around, hitting himself in the face with his ponytail in the process. Spitting out a few loose hairs, the young Firebender saw a group of four teenage boys, probably around fourteen or fifteen years old at the most, most lik

"Don't tell me I got lost again..."
Jiayi sighed and checked her map for what seemed like the millionth time that morning. She tilted it to the left. She tilted it to the right. She even tried looking at it upside down. But, no matter what she did, it just didn't make any sense. Jiayi scratched her head and lowered the map to check her surroundings. She didn't know where exactly she was. But, based on the smell of garbage mixed with stale cactus juice and the brick wall staring her in the face, she knew two things. First, this was one of Republic City's many alleyways. And second, this definitely no where near her brother's apartment in Dragon Flats. Jiayi came to the city to live with her brother during her time at the prestigious Republic City University. She knew it probably would have been easier to take a cab to the apartment. But, she didn't know her way around the city and she wanted to learn. Sighing in frustration, Jiayi folded up her map and stuffed i
