Chapter 1

Bumi threw another rock into Yue Bay. Stupid Kya and Tenzin he thought with their bending. He hurled annother stone and this time it went seven skips before sinking.

'Your getting good at that, kid.'

Bumi sighed 'Go away, Uncle Sokka.'

Now it was Sokka's turn to sigh. 'Whats bugging you , kiddo?'

'Nothing.' Bumi hurled anothe rock. 'Benders.'

Sokka sat down on the stones and patted the spot beside him, 'Come and explain, kiddo.'

Bumi plopped down beside his uncle, 'It's not fair! Kya and Tenzin get all the attention! All because they can bend and i can't. Even Ursa and Lin can bend And then they play these games and cant join in cos you gotta be able to bend to join in.' He paused for a breath, 'I hate them!'

Sokka ran his hand over his wolftail and looked over the bay at Republic City. He had been prepared for a few posiblilitys when Katara asked him to talk to his nephew. Girls, shcool he had been prepared for but he should have expected this.

'Bumi look at me, bending isn't everything.' He turned to face his nephew. 'I'm not a bender, but im still on the council for the City, I felped defeat the ex-Firelord Ozai and end the One Hundred Year War. Bending isn,t everything, go ask auntie Mai or TyLee or the Kyoshi Warriors and they will all tell you that bending causes more problems than it solves.'

'But Dads the Avatar. I feel like i'm failing him by not being a bender!'

'Your not failing him make him proud another way! Learn skills like strategy and survival or swordsmanship. Sure your dad can go all glowey but can he plan a battle?' Sokka's face lit up as he had an idea. 'I know! I'll teach you!'

'Teach me what?' asked a confused Bumi.

'Teach you the Manly Skills of Manliness thats what! Strategy and swordsmanship, and stuff like that!' Sokka was abruptly cut off as Bumi tackle-hugged him.

'Thankyou, Uncle Sokka.' Bumi mumbled into his uncles shirt.

'Anytime, kid.'

'Hey Uncle Sokka, You wanna hear a joke?"' Bumi let his uncle go. He had a massive grin plastered on his face.

'Sure thing.' Sokka smiled. He loved hearing little kid jokes.

'What kind of hair does the ocean have?'

Sokka looked out over 'Yue Bay' I dunno kid, why dont you tell me?'

'Wavy!' Bumi burst out laughing and Sokka with him.

'Do you have a joke Uncle Sokka?'

'I dunno kid.' Sokka grinned

'PLLEEEEAAAAASSSSSEEEEE Uncle Sokka?' Bumi yelled

'Ok, ok! Spirits, Bumi lungs like that you could be an opera singer.' Sokka relented, 'Ok, here we go "YoMamma's so fat and hairy, Aang jumped on her and said 'Yip, yip'."' Bumi burst out in fresh peals of laughter.

'Your funny, Uncle Sokka!'

Sokka was laughing so hard he almost didn't notice Katara looming over him with a furious look on her face.

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow.
