Her entire life had been devoted to bending, working on techniques and training and pushing her body to its limits. She'd felt fatigued before, of course, but right now she just felt tired.
So very tired.
Korra's knees were nearly buckling under Bolin's weight as she and Mako carried him up the stairs together to the brothers' home. Each step she took made her legs shake with the extra burden. Bolin's arms were wrapped around each of their shoulders, but he, too, was miserably drained of energy, and was still pretty out of it. He couldn't support his own body, and after the night he'd experienced, Korra couldn't blame him. He slipped in and out of consciousness easily, but she wished he would just stay asleep.
Bolin screamed every time he awoke from his dreams. It made Korra cringe, unwilling to imagine the torture that he had been through.
She didn't want to think about it.
Bolin's boots banged against each step as they cl

After winning their semi-finals match and advancing to the championship game, Korra and Bolin had insisted on going out to celebrate. Sure, Mako was ecstatic that they had dominated the Buzzard Wasps, but he didn't particularly see the need to 'go public' with his emotions regarding the tournament. His teammates disagreed wholeheartedly, and had somehow succeeded in dragging him out to the popular Moon Peach jazz club on the west side of the city.
His idea of a celebration was something a bit more quiet, more relaxing, without all the people, and it certainly was packed tonight. When they'd arrived, there had been a substantial number of people, but once word got out that the Avatar was out at the Moon Peach, people came flooding in. Honestly, Mako just wanted to spend time alone with Korra. But he refused to join in and dance, so he stood on the side of the action, leaning against the

Mako was trying his damnedest to not pay attention to the perverted leader of the Wolfbats leering at Korra, but he just couldn't. Every few practice punches he threw, he was looking over his shoulder and observing the scene with an obvious glint in his amber irises. Tahno was standing off to the side of the training room with the rest of his group, sending Korra hungry looks as he watched her spar with Bolin, however, she didn't seem to notice, or she was just ignoring him. It was sick, and it was annoying the Firebender to no end for more than one reason than the fact that it was completely inappropriate. He hated that Tahno's mind was racing with such thoughts about his girl or who he considered his girl about Korra.
Though Mako had tried to deny it to himself on several occasions, he felt quite strongly about the Avatar. At first, she had irritated him endlessly, but after they went to rescue him brother together, they began to get along better, and f
Warm Me With Your Touch MakorraKorra had always been cold. Growing up in the Southern Water Tribe, the wind seeped through her bones and settled there permanently. Maybe that's why her heart was hard? No matter how anyone tried to crack it, they would end up getting hurt (sometimes physically). Korra could handle anything. Or so she thought. She could handle an ambush of Equalists or intense air bending training with Tenzin. She could handle leaving her home to become a fully realized Avatar. She could even handle the weight of the world's problems on her shoulders. But why had he walked into her life? This pain was more than she could bear. Her icy heart threatened to break and shatter.

Mako took Korra's hand and laid it on his broad chest. She breathed in and out slowly to calm her nerves. "Relax," she told herself, "this is just training." She couldn't help but notice how warm his body was. Were all fire benders that way? He seemed to radiate heat an
