Katara landed on the water with ice forming beneath her feet. She scanned the banks ready for anything that might be lurking. She crouched down waiting for an eminent attack.
“Katara! You need to be more careful!” Sokka came running up to the river bank scanning further into the trees.
“Did you see that kid? What kind of crazy firebending was that?”
“I don’t know Sokka, but I think we should get back to Appa and wait for the others to get back” They both cautiously made their ways through the trees back to their hidden camp where Appa rested inside a small cave on the cliff side.
Aang, and Zuko were on a recon mission scouting out a known nearby fire nation camp. Suki and Toph were down at the beach practicing strategies for the Kioshi warriors to get past any Dai Le agents they might encounter on their travels.
As they sat huddled in the cave waiting for anyone else to get back, Katara pooled all the water dripping at the back of the cave to form a pond disguised as a small puddle just in case. She was going to be ready. Looking over her handy work she suddenly saw a boulder go flying over the trees from the beach area. Looks like Toph was pushing Suki to the limits now.
“Hey Katara, You got to hear what happened to me and Suki!” Toph remarked coming around the trees. She was bracing Suki up, Her pant leg was torn and bloody.
Katara quickly ran forward and helped Suki into the water and began her healing hands while Toph described in great detail of their adventures.
Kakashi walked through the village streets when a flash of orange overhead caught his attention. It was Naruto with the cloak of the nine tails. Tucking the book he was reading into his flak jacket, Kakashi took off after Naruto. Something was going down. He got to the clearing in the trees just in time to see Naruto disappear and an echoing voice that sounded like the nine tails
“ Kakashi, He won’t listen Something is pulling him!”
Kakashi ran forward and dove in after Naruto. Too fast even for his Sharingan to see, Everything folded and twisted around Kakashi until he found himself in a small glen of trees. Looking through the trees, he could see the ocean and he could hear fighting on the beach.
Kakashi stepped out onto the beach where he saw a short girl wearing green. She was walking slowly around a large boulder on the beach with a stick in her hand, tapping along the ground as she went. She was whimpering softly. She turned around and stopped. He noticed her milky white eyes. She turned her ear towards him.
“Hey, is someone there? My family got ambushed, can you help us?” Kakashi walked up to her and she reached her hands out in front as if she was looking for something.
“Can I feel your face to see what you look like?” She asked innocently. He obliged and placed her hands on his face.
“I’m here to help you.” He said casually. She looked at him and smiled pleasantly.
“You are a terrible liar” she said. With those words, she pulled his head down while kicking her knee up to meet his face. He brought his arms up to push her hands away and she leaned back with her hands still on the side of his head. He never saw the rock formation rising out of the ground behind him. Striking him in the center of his neck, he vanished in a puff of smoke.
“Suki, get back to camp, I’ll deal with him” Toph kicked the stick away.
“Didn’t you just do,… something to him?” Suki asked in amazement.
“I don’t know what happened to that guy but there is another one in the forest coming in fast. I’ll distract him, you get away. The one I just killed had no heart beat.” With those words, Suki took off into the forest.
“Are you afraid of a little blind girl?” Toph yelled into the forest. As she did, she heard a noise. Metal things flying through the leaves. She raised a wall out of the ground to block them. Several shuriken slammed into it. Kakashi jumped out of the trees above her but before he could react, she was already throwing small boulders at him.
Kakashi jumped across the boulders as they flew through the air whileshe stomped the ground with her left foot causing a trail to rise out of the ground like a snake to the exact spot that he would have landed. His Sharingan didn’t miss a thing.
Kakashi landed behind her and she spun around on one heel to face him. As she did, she put her arms out on either side of her then pulled them towards her chest. With that motion, rocks flew out of the ground encasing her body in stone armor. Not a single part of her body was exposed. She began to run towards Kakashi who quickly attached a paper bomb to a kunai knife behind his back. He lunged to the side and hurled the kunai at Toph who was currently in midair and flying towards him fast. The paper bomb exploded in a shower of rocks and pebbles but Toph was already out of the stone armor.
Right before Kakashi landed, he noticed the ground beneath him was flowing like water. Arms of sand reached out to encase him. Looking through the forest, he saw Suki about one hundred yards away. It was a low thing to do but he needed to get away so he reached into his pack and hurled a handful of shuriken at both Toph and Suki. This one would go to her aid.
Toph put her right arm up in front of her, causing another wall to appear out of the ground with her left arm, straight out to the side, she hurled three rocks through the trees to intercept the ones targeted for Suki. She blocked all three but by the time she noticed that Kakashi had thrown a fourth at Suki, she couldn’t catch it in time. Toph felt Suki fall as the blood from her leg splattered across a nearby tree.
Toph stomped the ground, flew through the air and landed practically on top of Kakashi’s head which was all that was out of the ground now. She leaned over him and said with a growl.
“You’re dealing with the blind bandit now” She stepped back, waved one arm in front of her and the ground split apart in a large circle around him. She then raised both her hands in the air, palms down. The earth began to shake violently. Everything went quiet. The earth stopped shaking and Toph, balled her hands into fists, brought them down into a fighting stance while she stomped on the ground with her right foot.
The boulder that Kakashi was entrapped in, lifted out of the ground and flew high over the trees, so fast that it knocked the wind out of his lungs and he blacked out. He was out of chakra.
