Legend of Korra: The Academy :
Kaizer yawned, lazily throwing another newspaper at a house's door. Unfortunately, holidays for Kaizer meant only much more work. As a newspaper delivery boy, he had to work every single day of the year. The pay was good, and it helped him afford his studies and his daily life with his aunt. As he threw another newspaper at another door, he glanced at a couple of kids gasping as they watched one of their friends waterbend. "Wooooow!" said one of the kids. "Do it again, do it again!" The center of attention was a small boy that was bending water in and out of a bowl, much to the applause and satisfaction of his young friends. Kaizer shrugged, remembering his childhood in the Northern Water Tribe, where every single day he had to train to perfect his physique and his waterbending. As he entered the city's center area, he hoped something fun would happen, something to make his last day of "freedom" different from all the others.
Lun was at the closest beach, as she had been for nearly half of the holidays. There was important paperwork to be done and classes to be planned, but as usual she had left it to the last minute in favour of relaxing under the sun and away from the city. Occasionally her hands would whip up and a nearby batch of seaweed would follow and dance around, but that was all she was willing to do work-wise.
"WHAT THE F*CK IS A PLOT?!"
She went to its middle and took a fighting stance.
"Kiai!" she shouted as she punched the air, launching a small fireball; it dissipated before it hit anything. She watched, satisfied, as smoke rose from her fingers.
She looked around. The dojo was empty save for her, and anyway her mother told her that she could do whatever she likes since it was the holidays' last day. So she decided to go on a walk.
She exited the dojo, locking it up, and started walking, briskly, toward the Academy. She was there after fifteen minutes, and noticed Rubus almost immediately — after all, he was taller than any person around. Still, she didn't have much to do with him — he was too sour for her tastes.
As much as I don't want to, she thought, I'd better greet him. Politeness is important.
So she walked up to him.
"Good morning, Rubus," she said. "Did you enjoy your holiday?"
With that, she left him, waving once. A pity he didn't remember her name, but, still, that was to be expected. He was even less sociable than she.
She continued with her walk, waving to some of the shop-owners she passed by. At the Tea House* she stopped for a few minutes, exchanging pleasantries with its owner. She promised she'll drop by and continued, finally arriving at the park.
She sat down in the shade of a tree, coincidentally not far from Kuya and Aiko stood.

She stretched and got up, cracking her knuckles. She walked up to Aiko and Kuya.
"You'll have to do better than that, but the point of the Academy is to teach you, neh?" she said. "My name is Zhao Yun. I am a third-year Lightningbending student in the Academy."
She inclined her head.
