Welcome to the Jasmine Dragon!

"Miao," whined the small cat curled comfortably around Iroh's feet.  It was an ugly thing, with a smushed-in face that made it look perpetually frustrated and random patches of smooth black fur interrupting the coarse white hair that covered the rest of its body.  And it was missing an eye.

"Hush, Shiri, it's not dinner time just yet," muttered Iroh as he pruned the unruly branches of a bonsai tree.  He had found the stray rummaging fervently through his garbage and decided putting some milk out now and again would be more proper than leaving the thing to starve.  Unfortunately, it seemed as if the cat had run away from a crude owner--it only responded to Shiri, or Ass.  He never spoke to the cat when there were customers around.

It wasn't quite closing time yet, but Iroh had officially closed the shop for today.  He was expecting a different sort of visitor, in fact, the Fire Lord himself had deigned to visit this lowly tea shop in Ba Sing Se.  His nephew would be arriving soon enough.

"Miaooo," Shiri complained loudly as Iroh stood up and put the tiny decorative tree on one table as a centerpiece.

"What is it now?" he sighed, then realized he heard sounds out from the street.  Smiling broadly, he opened the door to the Jasmine Dragon.

Mai hung back as she watched Zuko greet his uncle. She felt out of place, again, like when she had first started joining Zuko when he hung out with the group. She'd never talked to Iroh much. But she knew how important Iroh was to Zuko. Even though she didn't know the details, she knew that he had watched over Zuko and been like a father to him. She didn't want to intrude on that. Especially when Zuko was smiling like that again. He had managed to leave all the worries and frustration back at the palace, and was just Zuko again. She liked to think that she had helped him do that, last night, but she knew how much he missed Iroh and how nice it must be getting away from the palace. So she swallowed her discomfort and followed everyone else as they moved off to the side. She was still looking forward to a relaxing vacation.
