So this is a group story between me and TriforceKittieMon! It's a crossover between Naruto and the Legend of Korra, as you can probably tell from the title. Me, RedFangedDemon, am Emira and Triforcekittiemon, Erin, is Amaya. I'll be doing the first chapter, and then we'll be switching back and forth from there. The perspective will also change each chapter.
I couldn't find my polar bear-dog Jay, so I decided I would have to travel through the trees. I leaped and managed to grab a hold on one of the big branches. I took a deep breath and used my momentum to propel myself forwards to the next branch, and I continued on like that for a while until I heard some snuffling noise beneath me. I skidded to a stop on one of the larger branches on the tree, and hid behind the main trunk. I chanced a quick look and saw a large white form. I sighed in relief. It wasn't anything evil, or anything unknown. It was Jay! Now I wouldn't have to keep on going through these trees, I thought. I called down to him, and a large roar answered me. Nope. Never mind. Not Jay. I grimaced to myself, and slapped my forehead with my hand. Of course it would end up like this. I was going to end up having to fight this wild animal. Unless.....
I jumped down smoothly onto the polar bear-dog's back and clung to its fur for dear life as it noticed and started bucking and rearing in anger. I growled like a wolf at it, and wrapped my hands around its long fur to keep a good grip. My legs were starting to burn from the effort that it took to clench them to the white beast. I had to do something, and fast. My hands formed a sign, and I yelled, "Water Style Jutsu! Syrup Capture Field!" A stream of thick, sticky liquid shot out of my hands and I moved it underneath the animal as it leaped into the air in an effort to dismount me. As it landed, it hit the capture field and was stuck in the adhesive trap. I jumped off and was sure to avoid landing in the goo. I started to walk away, but I heard a whine and I slowly looked back, to see a sad face looking back at me. Not the puppy eyes. I sighed. I knew I shouldn't let my better nature get ahold of me, but I couldn't just leave the poor thing. I muttered, "Release!" and the sticky substance transformed back to water and sunk into the ground. The polar bear-dog ran up to me, and I flinched, but it stuck out its tongue and gave me a huge lick that involved the entire circumference of my body. I fell down from the force, and giggled. "Okay, I gotta go. Like, now, so bye!" I said to the animal, and patted it on the head.
I took to the trees again and finally came to the outskirts of Republic City. I shook the dirt out of my fishnet sleeves on my light blue T-shirt, and attempted to make myself look presentable. That's kind of hard to do, when you don't look like anyone else in the whole city. I had black cargo shorts that came down to my knees, orchid-colored hair, and burning lavender eyes that were surrounded by black, rounded rhombuses. Instead of wearing my headband from the Leaf Village on my head, which was the norm, I wore it around my left leg, just above the calf, but not quite on my knee, because it was a much more practical place, where it wouldn't fall into my eyes as I fought.
I ran a hand through my hair, and pursed my lips together and tried to prepare myself for whatever the councilman would say to me.
I continued walking through the streets, and took note of the glares and dirty looks I got from people. Sure, I was the Avatar and was supposed to unite the ninjas and the benders, but from the way everyone avoided me and despised me, it didn't seem like they were very open to the idea. I wasn't very far into my ninja training, but I was at the chuunin level. My teacher, Kakashi-sensei, didn't actually teach me very much. I guess he wasn't used to the idea of benders learning jutsu, so he just showed me some of the basics, like focusing Chakra into your feet to climb trees. I shrugged it off, and made it to my house. I knocked on the door, and a tall, bald man with a blue arrow on his forehead answered. I took a step back in surprise, and said, "Um, hello...I'm Emira. Are you the councilman?" He nodded and replied, "Yes, I am Tenzin. Please come in, I have something to talk to you about." I felt kind of strange being asked to come into my own house, but I ignored it and stepped inside.
The walls of my house were covered with pictures of different pro-benders and great ninjas. There was even a poster showing off the four elements. I was used to them, but I wasn't sure about this...Tenzin.
I took a seat at my kitchen table, and he sat across from me.
"Emira," he started. "I have a proposition for you. I know that you haven't finished all of your bending training."
"Yeah, I know," I answered. "I just have to master metal-bending and I'll be done, right?"
"Yes," he said, nodding. "But I want you to come live with me for a while to learn the duties of the Avatar. Especially one like you, who has to unite the two races-benders and ninjas. You need to learn the right way to use your powers to defend the people of the two cities."
"But-what about the other cities?" I asked, a little confused why he would leave the other ninja villages out of the conversation. "Don't I have to unite them, too?" I didn't like my responsibility of being Avatar. I felt that someone else should have it, maybe someone older. That's why I was going to give this guy a hard time.
He shook his head. "We don't have a peace treaty with the other cities. We have to make do with the the Leaf Village. You were born and raised there, so it's no problem for you, right?"
What he said was partially true. I was born in the Leaf Village, but not raised. Most of my friends I knew because of my visits there. I liked the village a heck of a lot better than Republic City. It was so calm and peaceful, while the big city had loud noises that I just can't stand.
I half-smiled and said, "Definitely not." It was true, but my mother had forced me to move to Republic City and meet new people here and make "friends". I could basically visit the Leaf Village whenever I wanted to, but it just wasn't the same as living there. I felt like I was slowly growing away from my best friends who still lived there. I barely even talked to Ino anymore, because I could only visit for a few hours, and her house was on the other side of the village, which would take too long to get to where I was.
"I guess I could go live with you, if it's okay with my mom," I pointed into the living room, where my mother was putting away one of her projects. She hollered back, "I already told him you were going!" I glared at her. "So I didn't even have a choice anyways?!" My mom and I never got along. We were both stubborn and liked to do things our own ways, so we couldn't ever agree. I shrugged, and ignored her reply, so I didn't hear it. Tenzin's eyes opened wider, though, so I figured my mom must have started swearing at me again. I was used to it, so I just turned to Tenzin and asked, "Can we leave now, please?" Then I whispered softly, "I can't stand her." Tenzin nodded in agreement, and we took off swiftly through the door after I packed my bags.
