Zuko felt the bile rising in his throat. He felt dizzy and light headed.
They had just gone over the plan. It was so simple. So easy. So terrifying.
He lowered his gaze to the floor and swallowed. "I ca- Azula I can't do this."
She glared at him fiercely.
"And why NOT pray tell?"
"I just- it would be like starting from the beginning again."
"Oh. I see."
He recoiled. There was a poison in her tone; a deadly poison.
Standing from her newly-acquired throne, Azula walked slowly towards him, every step making him wince.
"Zuzu, Zuzu. How will you ever expect to become a great leader if you're afraid to start over again?"
She held up a hand. "I'm not done. Not only would it be easy, but a learning experience. You're not really helping the Avatar, and you're not really helping them win the war."
"....." he swallowed again; in atemp to force down the foul taste on his tongue.
"Besides, you would restoring your honor."
At this, his head shot up, molten eyes bla

They should be a ways away by now. Its been four days.
But Azula, Zuko was hurt. There was blood all over the floor. the acrobat made a face. It was icky.
Yes, he was injured, but not too horribly I hope? she glared at an agent, forcing him to answer her threat laced question.
N-no- he paused and cleared his throat, making him sound more official. Unfortunately, it also made him sound more nervous. Not his original intention, Ty Lee figured. No maam.
He mustve noticed too, because his eyes widened slightly when he heard his own mouse-like squeak.
Azulas only reaction however, was narrowing her eyes in satisfaction as she traced her bangs with her nails.
Good. That would ruin our plan.
Curiosity bubbled over.
Um...Im still not exactly clear. What is the plan Azula?
The princesss glare caused her to shrink back. And suddenly, she was trapped; pinned under th

The scene was silent. All eyes were directed at the two bender opposites. The air was thick with suspense, and even the birds outside seemed to respect the quiet, for their singing had consiterably dulled.
Or maybe Katara was too focused on the man in front of her to notice. She certinly hadnt when the Earth King had tripped in and fallen on his face.
Oww... he groaned as he rubbed his nose. I say, what is going on here? Wincing, he gingerly picked himself off the floor. He glanced around the room, his eyes finally resting on the banished prince. Hello. Forgive me for my awkward appearance. I am the Earth King, well, was. a sad smile formed at his lips.
At last, Zuko managed to tear his eyes away from the piercing pare of blue before him, and gave the king a slight nod of acknowledgment, but quickly turned his attention back to the waterbender. Her fists were clenched, her eyes wide. Compared to her icy orbs, his seemed to glow in warmth as the

Stars Chapter five- Zutara
It was cold. So cold.
Why? whispered an unheard voice. Why?
The sun was bright overhead, and radiated with a happy glow. The grass and trees were a healthy green, and the sky bright and clear. Yet....
Why is it so cold?
Zuko found his answer.
Under him was a frozen pond, and he was lying at its center.
He was bemused. Sunny, warm,...cold? Frozen. He had never known these to fit together, but, like all dreams, something in the back of his mind dimly told him it wasnt real. Go On, it urged, This Isnt What Youre Here For.
Freezing, the prince attempted frantically to melt the ice, but wound up with only a pair of raw frozen hands.
Looking around, he found a small, almost unnoticeable patch of dark ice, and dragged his way across. Slipping and sliding on the cold exterior, Zuko let out a sharp yelp as his palm was caught on a jagged piece of harde

"What?!" the young woman cried, stepping from behind a tree.
"There you are! Where have you been?!"
"In the woods- where do you think!"
It was a clear spring morning. Birds were chirping, the sun was shinning, and Katara had been missing for an hour. And Sokka, being the protective brother he is, had been franticly searching every square inch of land for her.
"Why were in the there alone?! You could've been attacked, or robbed, or- hey;" he eyed the basket in her hands, "what's in that?"
"You went to the market?" Sokka cried, eyes wide in disbelief. "You said you were in the woods!"
"Well, yeah. You have to go through them to get there." She answered simply, balancing the carrier on her hip. "Now do you mind Sokka? I want to start breakfast, and I know you're hungry."
Sokka was dumbfounded.
"I can't believe you Katara!" he shouted in outrage. "I deliberately told you not to go there!"
"We needed food!" she spat. For the past six days, t

"Shh. Quiet Bosco."
Katara glanced over her shoulder at the Earth King and his bear.
Giving them a sorry look, she reached over to the food bag and dumped the contents into her lap. All she found were crumbs and a rock shaped nut Sokka had proclaimed, "might just be a rock."
It had been two days without food-and while they had been through worse, the king and Bosco weren't used to such conditions.
Their stomachs had been grumbling nonstop for the past five hours.
Raising the bag to eyelevel she dug through it thoroughly, hoping that perhaps something was stuck inside.
"I'm sorry Bosco. We'll just have to find a market." She said, continuing to search through the bag in vain.
"Oh no! We are not stopping at a market this near the city!" Sokka cried, whipping around to face Katara.
"We're miles outside Ba Sing Se! What-are you planning on starving us until we get to the Fire Nation?!" she retorted, "Sokka we need food!"
"Well we'll just have to wait! Azula probably

Why- after all the lessons his mother had given him in proper etiquette- WHY were chopsticks so hard to use??
He had been using them all his life but Zuko had never perfected how to hold them.
Of course, his way of handling them had always consisted of taking one of the chopsticks in his fist, and stabbing his food with it; like a kind of shish-ka-bob.
It was also one of the reasons he had always eaten in private.
For years now, his uncle had been trying to teach him the proper holding technique.
" Happy chopsticks make a happy belly!" Iroh had often reminded him; at which Zuko had either snorted in disgust, or stabbed another piece of meat.
And so, after staring at his place for ten minutes, he ordered the servants to take it away and replace it with something more suitable.
While waiting, he glanced over at Azula, who he found to be watching him intently.
"What?" he asked nervously.
"You still can't use chopsticks" she replied flatly.
"Oh…uh…yeah, well…it hasn't really

Sokka! Wipe your mouth
Cant. No time. Must eat.
Youre getting jelly all over Appa!
The young warrior eyed his sister with content. I cant help it! You picked great food this time!
This time? she said, placing her hands on her hips.
Nodding, he wiped his wrist across his lips, covering it in the sticky fruit preserves, before grabbing another biscuit. He then proceeded to spread jam on it with the tip of his machete.
Besides, we can always give him a bath later. Under them, Appa gave a groan of agreement.
Another bath? And just who is going to scrub his feet?
Sokka grinned. Katara rolled her eyes.
Shoving the bread in his mouth, Sokka reached for the food bag and pulled a strip of meat from one of the inner pockets.
Ahh, meat, he cooed, dangling it in front of his gaping jaws. How Ive missed you!
