Avatar Book 2: The Burning Earth

Chapter 2: The First Week

Zuko and myself had gone to look for food. When we came back, we saw Iroh staring at a plant. "This is the rare White Dragon bush. It makes a tea so delectable it's heartbreaking. That, or it's the White Jade plant," Iroh told us.

After that, Zuko and I took our Ostrich-Horse and left.
