Scattered Remains Ch.4 Lu TenLu Ten
Lu Ten's eyes opened to darkness. He was blind, as usual, but he was not deaf, not dumb. The ringing of a voice, a comforting and well known, but also a new and unsure sound, shot through the darkness, and with it something rapping around his waist. A hug. "and how is my son the Luitenant today?" My laughter came quickly, as if it was something I was always hearing this voice say. "Hello there general, ready to set off towards victory?" A clacking noise started, and it seemed as if we were walking. "We have almost and hour till departure, how about a nice peaceful moment sitting under the shade of a tree near the turtleduck pond? I'm sure your cousins are there, no doupt hoping for their great Lu Ten to bid them farewell." His arm unwrapped form my waist, and it sounded as if he was walking farther left then I was. My footsteps stopped. " Father, we have no time for playing around with ducklings and children, we have to be ready for battle as soon as we s

"don't forget who you are." I lay Zuko back down, and turn unwillingly towards the door, pulling up my hood, the sound of my tears pattering against the cloth. I enter the doorway, and turn my head enough to see his sleeping form, but my sight is overcome by tears once more. "I promise I shall come back for you, no matter the cost. I will always love you, my son." It's barely a whisper, I can almost not even hear my own voice, and was sure that he couldn't hear it either. But it was still said and lingered in the air around him, and it would linger there till my return. I walk through the palace halls of the living quarters, hacening my pace,hoping the midnight guard had already passed here. Finally, the safety of the garden door, moonlight dazzling the moonflowers and vines over the doorway, was in my midst. I slowed down, hoping knowone had decided to come here tonight, for I should have been gone this morning. As I came to the safety of the moonlight, a

The turtle duck pond, my favourite place. I sit in my mother's lap, throwing bread to the turtleducklings. Azula, a toddler at the time, sits beside us, trying to catch one of the ducklings.Not to close, Azula, you'll fall in. She grabs her, and sets her in here lap next to me. Azula pouts, but stays there. Can we stay here forever mom? Right here is perfect. She smiles at me and my silly 6 year old thoughts.well, that WOULD be nice wouldn't it, but you guys have to go to bed sometime. She starts to tickle us, then picks us up, and starts to carry us to the garden door. Suddenly, I feel a pulling at my shoulder and....
"Your higheness, it's time for the wake up call you ordered." Zuko turns in his bed, groaning. Why did I order a wake up call today anyway? Isnt today my rest day? "I not ready yet, please leave." He shews the servant away, and covers his head with one of his pillows. " But sir, you...." "I said I'm not ready yet!" zuko's v

My eyes open to the sight of the sky, the sun at its peak, half obuscured by a mighty wall. As my gaze lingers upon it, a feeling of serenity comes over me, its might and beauty filling my spirit as I give my son a hug. Suddenly, the beauty and grace shatters as I looked upon a battle, bodies strewn in every direction, the sand stained red. Where has the beautiful wall gone? Where have I been taken? More importantly, where is Lu Ten? I look down at myself, noticing the armor that hs replaced my robe, and the sword now strapped around my waist. A darkness starts to fall over me, and with fear filled eyes, I turn towards the beginning of the shadow that now surrounds me. There, under the wall, a dark, evil aura now surrounding it, a helmet and sword seem to hover above the rest of the massacre. a blood stained and dented helmet. I run towards it, hoping it isnt true...
Iroh awakes, his face streaked with the tears that had
