"Move those damn legs Twinkle Toes!" Twinkle Toes, that's Toph's nickname toward Aang, she uses that nickname a lot, mostly when they were training, she rarely used his real name, but that didn't seem to bother the young aribender who was currently dodging earthbended boulders that were thrown against him with fury. "Dodging won't help you beat the Fire Lord Twinkle Toes! You have to attack!"
The group had been staying at the Air Temple for a while, Aang was supposed to be training firebending since he was already able to dominate earthbending, but since it was Zuko's turn to do the shopping, Aang had to train with Toph instead.
Katara was already fixing a nice dinner for the group, Suki was helping her with the preparations, Haru and the others were exploring the temple as always, and Sokka was left with nothing better to do than watch the bender's training. "Twinkle Toes?"
Something had been bothering him, he was able to notice how much Toph called Aang Twinkle Toes, it was
Tokka - When You LeaveThe words on the letter just didn't seem to register in Sokka's mind. This must have been the seventeenth time he ran his tired eyes over the letter. He managed a sigh as he placed the letter in his travel bag, and threw it on his bed. He flopped down on the bed and buried his face in his hands.Tokka - When You Leave5 years ago in Short Stories
He heard a soft knock at the door that startled him.
"Come in," He called out, sitting up.
The door slid open and Toph stepped through, wearing her usual attire. The deep green and terra-cotta yellow brought back so many memories.
"Are you alright? I could feel you pacing all the way from my room," She asked with an edge of genuine concern.
Sokka managed an unusually large smile, "I'm fine, really! You don't have to worry about me!" He said with a nervous laugh.
"You're lying," Toph replied in her sarcastic, sing-song voice.
Sokka retreated to his bed, while Toph took a seat next to him. "I know, I know. So I'm under a little-,"
Toph's knowing eyes bore into him with a hint of humor.
Tokka - BoomerangsThe distant sound of barking Tiger-Seals awoke Sokka. He slowly sat up in his bed, and stretched, exhausted from the activities of yesterday. He rose to his feat when he suddenly realized.Tokka - Boomerangs5 years ago in Short Stories
Today's the day.
He pulled on his tunic and bolted out the door. Though it was still early in the morning, the entire Southern Water tribe was preparing for the arrival of the Avatar, as well as the chief's sister. He gazed at the scene of the villagers working diligently, sweeping igloos and washing tents, as well as bringing in every imaginable creature from the South Pole for a feast.
The hours went by as what Sokka presumed to be three O' Clock by the sun. The festival was complete, the only thing missing were the honored guests. He looked to the sky when he let his eyes rest upon a tiny black speck on the horizon. He knew he could recognize that fluffy-snot-monster from anywhere, anytime.
The sky bison touched down gently on the fragile ice. Age had not seemed to affect Appa, looking as
Tokka Pregnancy 2It has been 4 months since I told Sokka about my pregnancy and we have been debating on when we tell everyone else. I want to wait because I know that Katara is going to be critical about me doing ANYTHING in my "condition". I don't want to be treated like a pregnant women. I am not helpless.

The problem is that is getting more difficult to hide everyday. I just started noticing this 3 weeks ago when Sokka and I were in bed.
He was giving me a foot rub and treating me like a princess when he looked up and me and pointed out, "Toph, you are definitely sporting a bump there." He looked proud, knowing that there was a masterpiece half his inside of me." I groaned after he said that, knowing that would mean telling people soon. Sokka then leaned over and pecked me on the cheek and pressed his forehead up against mine. "It will be fine. Remember why we are doing this." Somehow he always makes me feel better. Damn him!

"Ugh! Stop kicking! Mommy wants some sleep." I think to myself as the little bugger in me squirms around.
"Sokka are you still up?" I ask a lump under a to hot blanket.
"Mmhmm." I hear a mumble.
"Sorry Snoozles. You can sleep."
"Is there something wrong Toph?" Sokka sits up, a worried expression forms on his face.
"No I have just been really uncomfortable lately. I can't get in a comfortable position to sleep in, my balance is off, I have to pee around the clock and on top of that, I AM FRIGGIN HUGE!" I begin to cry. All the more evidence of how tired I am.
Sokka pulls me close to him, knowing that I never cry. "Its okay Toph. You are pregnant. All pregnant woman feel this way during the end of their pregnancy. Just imagine who its for. Think about the prize at the end of all of this."
I smile, "I love you Sokka."
"I love you too my Blind Bandit."

"My due date passed already! Why isn't my baby ready yet?" I yell frustrated.
"It will be time any day now honey
