Shichika quickly took a defensive stance, and looked back at Shen to make sure he still had a hold on the other Eruption Point member. His gaze quickly shot back to the man. He took his pipe out of his mouth and chuckled, somewhat intimidating the Task Force member. He began thinking of the possible ways to fight this guy, when a sudden noise was blasted from the direction of the Avatar's base.
"All Five Point groups, report to the Avatar's base immediately! An important announcement is about to be made!" shouted the voice, which quickly shut off.
Once again, Shichika looked back at Shen. Shen nodded and threw the man to the ground. He quickly got to his feet and made his way over to the much more powerful-looking bender. Shen signaled that the both of the officers should probably move out and towards Hotaru's base. Shichika gave him the "agreed" sign and turned back to the Eruption Point members.
"Right now we all obviously have better places to be. Don't think this is over," he shouted, and he quickly jumped to the side of the building and climbed to the roofs, and Shen shot himself to the roof of the building opposite. They both made their ways to the Avatar's base.
Shen and Shichika both showed up to the Avatar's hideout just in time. The Avatar gave the Frost Point leader a smirk, an action Shen quickly made note of. The Avatar returned his gaze to the whole of the crowd.
“Well, we’re obviously not going to fight in such a tight space, here in the Five Points, because then we wouldn’t have a Five Points to go home to, now would we?” He chuckled audibly, and continued, “You see, we’re going to travel to different locations around the Earth Kingdom! And I, your Avatar, will use my mastery of the elements to create a multitude of arenas for your fighting pleasure," he continued. His sarcasm could be felt in the air, "Just as the geography changes, the rules and power-ups in the games will also change. Some that might even leave certain benders at a disadvantage. Now, I need a representative even two for these games. Hell, I'll even recruit non-benders, or the unaligned benders without these gangs others call family. You never know! I might even hop in as an end boss! Anyways, for the matter of deat, it’s not my problem if one of the rival gang members goes over the edge and decides to, instead of sending you to the infirmary, sends you to an early grave. This isn’t your average children's game, so you’ll need to survive. Some benders might be nice enough to not kill you, and leave you incapacitated instead. But don't count on it. As for today’s match… well, you’ll have to follow me to see where we’re going. Oh! And the rest of the gang members can come to watch and cheer each other on. So let’s get to the final part... the tributes! I’ll call the gangs, one by one, and then I’ll round up the unaligned gang members, who will get a hefty check to do as they wish.”
"We're gonna need disguises," Shichika said, cutting off Shen's concentration. He nodded, and the two of them returned to the police base to retrieve their civilian clothes.
