Kano ran through the alleyways and streets at a breakneck speed. His breathing was heavy as he tore along, running for his life. Behind him, he could hear his assailants. The sky was pitch black, only stars twinkling in the dark overhead. The new moon -- it was a curse upon waterbenders everywhere. He turned down another side alley, knocking over a pile of cabbages as he want. He didn't give a care for them and he didn't think it would slow them down, but he dared to hope.

He wove this way and that through the city's back alleys. There was nobody around. Why wasn't there anybody around?! He had been running so long his legs screamed for a reprieve, but he hadn't seen a single soul save the ones chasing him. They were hardly going to help him.

As he ran down what seemed the thousandth alley, he spotted a likely little alcove in which to hide. Looking over his shoulder quickly to make sure they didn't have him in their sights, he dove into the cover of the shadows there. He struggled hard to bring his breathing under control. If he didn't quiet down, they'd be able to follow their ears right to him.

He didn't know how he managed it, but he became as silent as stone by the time his pursuers caught up with him. It pained his lungs not to breath in deeply and as loud as he could, but he had to stay quiet.

Two figures suddenly appeared in the alley. He could make out their forms in the darkness. They seemed to be looking around for him. After about a minute or two of looking around, they seemed to decide that he had moved on faster than they had anticipated. As they moved off into the distance, out of earshot, he coughed, gasping for air. He felt like he'd just surfaced from the water after a lengthy submission to a game of hold your breath. Once he'd recovered, he looked back out at the alley.

I can't believe that worked. he thought, looking around carefully. There was no one to be seen. I need to tell the others about this!

He pushed himself to his feet, peering around once more before heading back out into the alley. The moment his foot landed on the stone, something bit at his shoulder harshly.

"Ack!" he said, instinctively reaching for whatever it was. When his hand came back, his fingers grasped a small, plain metal throwing dagger. It was drenched in his blood. He could feel warm liquid running down his arm. Looking around, he spotted a singular figure in the darkness. They had appeared out of nowhere.

Suddenly, Kano's vision swam. More figures appeared. They approached him slowly. He shook his head, trying to shake the sudden feeling of extreme exhaustion overtaking him. The dagger slipped from his fingers, falling to the pavement with a clink. He stumbled backward, hitting the wall, and then slid down into a crumpled heap, unconscious...

The soft moonbeams bathed the night in a silver blue glow, twisting the eerie shadows. The pockets of darkness bent themselves in shapes that made them more gargantuan than what they seemed,warping them into monstrosities. Under the dark of the moon, a legion of shrouded figures plastered themselves to the peeling walls of the lower ring.
Watching.
Waiting.
In the center of them was perched another, kneeling on the edge of a roof casually as the cool winds mussed with the entity's hair. The sudden change in the wind jingled a tarp flap on a building above them and it snapped upwards; the moonlight knifed through the shadows and revealed a fierce crimson Oni mask. Said entity did nothing but wait.

And watch.

Minutes passed before the "Oni Mask" turned wordlessly to a nearby member and gave a curt nod. Without hesitation the latter bowed and, with two others, descended swiftly from the rooftop and sprinted off into the night. About twenty seconds after, the "Oni" took off fleeting across the rooftops, the rest of the shadows following after.

ooOOoo

The particular member with the Oni Mask watched intently as its comrades weaved in and out of the alleyways in pursuit of "The Target". As it rose to a stand the Oni Mask could feel the anxiety from the rest as they itched to spring into action. For a moment, the entity stood resolute and glared down into the streets.

"The Target" came barreling down a random street and scrambled into a place unseen. Not long after the agents that'd been deployed sprinted down the same path and stopped in the middle of it. Briefly they exchanged glances before continuing down an opposite path. As soon as they rounded a corner "The Target" tumbled out of his little hiding place and crept out with all the finesse of a paranoid rabbicat. The moment he'd made his move the one with the Oni Mask twitched its wrist and, with a quick glint in the light, managed to knick him in the shoulder sharply. He turned and it held his gaze, despite it being blanketed in the shadows. It twitched it's fingers slightly and the remainder of the shadows sprung from their covers and advanced on the target who'd fallen out on the ground. The first 3 agents dropped down from a nearby rooftop and grabbed ahold of his wrists and ankles.The rest of the group made a pathway as the one who threw the dagger stepped forward.

"Captain?"

The one in the fierce Oni mask, that being the Captain, stood over the subdued target and took out 5 metal plates. The Captain bent the formidable metal around his wrists and ankles as strong restraints and then molded the final one over his mouth. Two other members came behind the leader and inserted a long, thick metal rod and hoisted him the air, completely hog-tied. Four members each took one hand on each end to support "The Target's" weight and then faced their leader.

The Captain raised one foot and stomped on the earth, a slab of the ground a few feet away slid sideways and the entity stomped again. Another slab slid apart, revealing a winding tunnel leading deep underground with sleek metal stairs. The Captain pointed for them to go in and so the entire group descended. Once they were all inside the leader pivoted and stomped twice, effectively sealing the entryway and erasing their tracks.

"You are to send word to the General that The Target has been detained immediately."

"As you wish, Captain Zhu-Rong." Four of the members bowed before giving a stomp and exiting down another tunnel, one that emptied directly into the Breach.

"As for the remainder of us," Zhu-Rong continued, removing her mask with a callous stare, "Our destination....is Lake Laogai."""

Kano's eyelids fluttered. He suddenly felt consciousness seep back into his blood and fill his mind. Slowly, he opened his eyes.

"Ugh." he said slowly, his head lulling back. He felt like he'd awoken early from much needed rest after days of being awake. Sluggish was the best word that came to mind. "What happened?"

And then many things entered his awareness in quick succession. He suddenly realized that he was in some strange and unknown place. A singular light shined down on him, but all around were shadows. The darkness was impenetrable.

He tried to move, but a rattling drew his attention to his wrists. His arms were chained and stretched uncomfortably. His ankles were also chained. He was strung up so high that his toes barely reached the ground. And someone had stripped off his clothing, replacing it only with a ragged pair of drawstring pants.

"What the hell?!" he said aloud, looking around wildly. "Where am I?"

He was just pondering screaming for help when something caught his eye -- the very tip of a leather boot peeking out from the shadows, catching the light. It had been directly in front of him the entire time, but he hadn't noticed it until then.

"W-who's there?"

"You know," said a voice from the dark, the boot's toe twitching slightly. "Somehow I thought capturing a waterbender of the Aowaka Clan at night would be more... difficult. I am simply amazed my Shadows were able to take you so easily."

"Who are you?!" Kano demanded, struggling against his restraints. Now that he was fully awake, he felt the will and the energy to break free coursing desperately through his veins. "What do you want?"

"Questions, questions." said the voice. "No. Questions are for me. I will ask them, and you will answer."

Kano stared at the place in the shadows where he supposed the face of this individual to be. He could tell it was a woman by her voice, though it was a voice he did not know. It had a certain smokiness to it that was very venomous indeed applied as it was.

"Now then." said the voice. "You will tell me why you are in Ba Sing Se."

Kano squinted into the darkness.

"Go to hell." he said finally. With an almighty effort, he pulled at the chain binding his right arm. A moment later, a powerful strike hit him...
