Earth Rumble

Uncle says, "When the earth moves, you must move with it."

My next stop after leaving Kyoshi Island, was the town of GoaLing, where Toph grew up. I was announced properly at the BeiFong estate, and dined with Toph and her family. Her parents weren't that different than Mai's, noble and dignified, and completely clueless about their daughter.

I realized then, that those of us who'd come to surround the Avatar had something in common: a disconnect with our parents. Sokka and Katara had been allowed to reconnect with Hakoda, and now Toph is working to reconnect with her parents. It makes me yearn to find my mother all the more.

After the meal, Toph insisted on dragging her parents and me to Earth Rumble, where she'd reclaim her title (apparently Aang had accidentally taken it away from her during the last one). I was surprised there was a Fire Nation fighter amongst the brawlers, but sadly, he was defeated far too easily.
