Chapter 1: Return to the Fire Nation
We were on a ship heading to the Fire Nation. I never saw it, seeing as I was born in the EarthKingdom. I just can't wait! I see that something is bothering Zuko, though. I wish I knew what it was. I walk over to him. "Zuko? What's bothering you?" I asked.
"It's been so long, Zuron. Over three years since I was home. I wonder what's changed. I wonder how I've changed," Zuko said in a worried tone.
"Don't worry so much. Your father will welcome you back. I promise, Zuko," I tried to reassure him to no avail. I walked down to where my sister was sleeping. I got in bed and drifted off to sleep.
The next day, we docked on the mainland of the Fire Nation. Princess Azula led us to her Father's throne room in the palace. Keisha and I waited outside, while Azula took Zuko to meet with their Father. Finally, when Zuko and Azula exited the throne room, Keisha and I were summoned inside. I led Keisha up to the front and we bowed to the Firelord. "What are your names?" Firelord Ozai asked.
"I am Zuron and this is my sister, Keisha," I answered.
"Are you Firebenders?" the Firelord asked.
"We both are," I answered.
"Zuron, Keisha, I heard that the both of you helped Prince Zuko and Princess Azula kill the Avatar. What kind of reward is suitable for you both?" Firelord Ozai asked.
"We do not seek any reward. We followed out of loyalty for our Prince and Princess. We followed out of loyalty to our Nation," I answered.
"You two will be allowed to live in the palace. You both may be needed for future work," Firelord Ozai stated.
"We thank you, my lord," I displayed my gratitude. Then, Firelord Ozai had a guard show us to our rooms.
I had just settled myself into my room. I saw Zuko leave his room with a container in his hand. I followed him until he got to the prison. I assumed that he was going to visit Iroh. I left him to it and went to my room. It sure didn't take long to fall asleep.
