Chapter 11: Tempest in a Teashop
The door to the teashop opened slowly to admit the three young women. One pair of liquid brown eyes scanned the nearly empty room, while the other two followed silently.
Welcome, ladies. The owner bowed to the first girl, May I interest you in a pie or cake with your tea?
Ohh! the bouncy young woman exclaimed. I just love cheesecakes! Can we get some, please? She begged her friend.
Sure, Ty Lee. One cheesecake please, sir. Azula told the man, who promptly scurried off to fill their order. Their lavish Earth Kingdom dresses rustled softly as they moved to a corner table, brown and pale gold eyes watching the other occupants intensely. Only Ty Lee seemed carefree, smiling happily at a dark haired waiter serving an elderly couple. They sat down, and the handsome young man came over to serve them, flashing Ty Lee a smile in return.
Good afternoon, my lovely ladies.

That shut the younger agent up.
Ahead of them, Iroh continued to hum merrily, taking a swig of water from his pouch

Chapter 9: Tiger and Crane
As soon as the sun rose over the inner wall, Iroh was gone. Hed packed up all necessary belongings, including the Avatars medicine, and set off quickly through the city. He attracted little attention, and was soon making his way through the lower ring to the citys inner wall. When he finally reached the guards, he was stopped.
What is your business outside the city? one asked, eyes narrowed at the former general.
I was here visiting my nephew, Li. Iroh replied calmly, But now it is time I made my journey home.
I see. The brawny Earthbender nodded to his companion. Together, the two opened a tunnel through to the other side, never even giving the old man a second glance as he passed them by.
The two Dai Li agents stationed on top of the wall, however, were watching with well trained eyes
