“When man of melon visits you / Nothing on earth that one can do / In well he’ll hide, or watery hole / And he will eat your mortal soul / so if thou seest the man so melony / pray you don’t see him again / for he is not from world we know / he cometh from far down below / on his bed of dirt from grave / from his dank and silent cave / he watches you yet has no sight / he taketh you away at night”
I love Toph's story-telling platform. ^_^ All of the expressions are great here, and the fire really helps set the atmosphere.
I think my favorite part is Katara and Zuko being too cool for this. Katara guessed the ending the second Toph opened her mouth, and Zuko's busy trying not to look touched that he was invited. (Or maybe growing up in his family is just scarier than most stories are. )
