The Blue Storm - Chapter 8Throughout the rest of the morning and most of the afternoon, I was playing with the airbender kids. I was in and out of the feral and anthro sides of my werewolf form. At one point, I felt Ikki land on my stomach hard. The force knocked the breath out of me and I lay spread-eagle on the ground, pretending to play dead to fool the kids.
However, my little trick didn't seem to be fooling them at all, as Ikki said, "Anuri? You're not dead."
"No!" I suddenly said out of the blue, and the kids screamed in surprise before the four of us started laughing. However, as we were laughing, I smelled something foul on the wind. I got up and looked around, eyeing everything in my sights suspiciously.
As I looked over the cliff that led down to the rocky shore, Jinora said, "What's the matter, Anuri? Do you sense a bear demon or something?"
I looked back at them and said, "I don't know, but it was probably just a…" I halted my words when a bear demon leapt out of the water below me, and was right be
The Blue Storm - Chapter 7The next morning, as the sun started to rise, I woke up, and saw that my brother and the girls were still asleep. I smiled at them and leapt off of Jinora's bed, where I had slept. I was still in the feral side of my werewolf form.
I exited the girls' room and started walking down the hall, changing back to my human form as I looked around. In my eyes, the place hadn't changed a bit these past two years that Tamaska and I have been away.
Wake up, little bro, I thought to Tamaska as I walked towards the front door. It's time for us to do yet another morning run.
I heard Tamaska run to meet me not ten seconds later. I looked back at him; he too, was in his human form, and boy, was he pent up and ready to run.
"Ready, little bro?" I asked as I got down, ready to run (I was so pent up myself that I could run at least five miles to get somewhere).
"I was born ready, big sis!" Tamaska gloated. I could tell he was excited for another run. Suddenly, out of the blue, he took off, and I was left
The Blue Storm - Chapter 6Not long after the airship landed and Lin went to the hospital, Tamaska and I decided to disappear and swim around the back of Air Temple Island and hide there until nighttime. We had a plan: surprise the airbender girls once everyone else had gone to sleep.
That night, about two or three hours after sundown, Tamaska and I went through a secret passageway I had dug underneath the temple a few years back (I had several others that led to several different places in the temple, but that'll be explained later on). The one we were taking currently lead to a cellar door in Ikki and Jinora's room. I slowly and carefully opened the hatch, going up the ladder, Tamaska following behind.
As soon as we were in the room, I looked at Tamaska for short second, gave him a signal to be quiet as he nodded, and we changed to our feral forms.
I walked over to Jinora's bed, and Tamaska walked over to Ikki's bed. Once I was righ
The Blue Storm - Chapter 5Aboard the airship, a few things ran through my mind, but one in particular: Someone that was once a good friend of my father was now an enemy to all of us. Hiroshi Sato had turned against the benders, against us all. I looked at Asami; she was still deeply saddened, because her own father was now her enemy.
I walked to her side and put my hand on her shoulder. "It'll be alright, Asami," I said. "We're all in this together. We'll all try to bring him to his senses if we ever see him again."
"No, it's alright, Anuri," Asami said, not looking at me. "You don't need to do anything."
I sighed deeply in defeat and nodded before I turned to Tenzin and Lin. They were having a very important conversation, it seemed. However, when I heard that Lin was planning to resign her role as chief of police, the Airbending Master and I were mortified.
"No, you can't give up like this!" Tenzin protested.
"Tenzin's right, Lin; don't resign," I said. "We can talk to Councilman Tarrlok and tell him that you
The Blue Storm - Chapter 4As we ran out of Republic City and past the Sato Mansion, I felt a stabbing pain in my back. I whined in pain and collapsed mid-run, just before we began climbing the hill toward home.
Tamaska heard my pained yelp and turned back to see what was wrong. "Big sis, are you okay?!" he exclaimed. "What happened to you--?" He broke off as he saw a pretty bad burn on my shoulder blade. "Oh, sis, you're badly burned." He gently licked the wound with his wolf tongue, and I cringed in pain.
"Anuri, Tamaska, what's going on?" a voice shouted. Tamaska and I looked back (I looked over my badly burned shoulder, and Tamaska looked straight down). It was Asami, Hiroshi Sato's daughter, standing near the testing course for the Satomobiles. "Are you hurt?" she called up again.
"Anuri's been burned by an Equalist glove!" Tamaska called down to her. "She needs healing, and bad!"
"Alright, I'll get my dad to call a healer! Wait there for me!" Asami called, and she was off to get her father.
It took thirty
The Blue Storm - Chapter 3One day, it was close to winter, and I was walking around my temporary made for me and Tamaska by Hiroshi Sato, another good friend of my father. It wasn't long before I heard my brother call me from the small cabin. "Anuri, come here! You've got to hear this!" he called.
"Alright, I'm coming!" I called back, and I ran towards the front door.
Just as I jumped through the door, I heard a female voice on the radio. The voice said: "Hello? I'm Korra, and I'm your new Avatar." My eyes widened and Tamaska and I looked at each other for a brief second and then back to the radio. The Avatar was in Republic City.
The new Avatar, whom I now recognized as Korra, continued, "See, I'm still in training, but look, all I know is Avatar Aang meant for this city to be the center of peace and balance in the world, and I believe we can make history a reality." I smiled at hearing Korra's words. She had spoken the words of a true warrior, a true bender, a true Avatar. "I look forward to serving you!"
The Blue Storm - Chapter 2It took us twenty long minutes to reach Air Temple Island. From atop Oogi, I could see Tenzin's wife, Pema, and their two-year-old daughter, Jinora. I had met Pema before about four months back, but I had never met their daughter, let alone see her.
When Oogi landed and Tenzin dismounted, Tamaska and I remained on the sky bison. We overheard Tenzin talk to his wife and daughter before he turned and looked back up at us.
Shyly, Tamaska and I scrunched away, but then, "You two quit acting so foolish! Come down here!" Tenzin ordered. Slowly, we did as the airbending master said, wishing not to anger him.
We slowly jumped down from the sky bison's saddle, changing to the feral side of our werewolf form in two seconds' time. Shakily, we started walking over to the airbending family (I count Pema, even though she is a non-bender).
Jinora approached us first, and slowly reached her tiny hand up to me (even in feral form; at the time, I was bigger, because I was older). I sniffed at her curiou
