A Day Lost
"Oh, hey Mako ." Korra said sheepishly.
"Have you seen Pabu anywhere?" Mako said making it obvious that he was nervous.
"Nice to see you too." Korra said.
"Why, what happened to him?" Korra asked and tilted her head.
"Um I kind of lost him." Mako said with anxiety.
"What?! How could you lose him? Oh man, Bolin's going to be so angry-wait he'd be sad-but also angry at you He's going to be both sad and angry at you!" Korra exclaimed.
"Well... Bolin told me Pabu and I should make a better bond with each other, so I brought him out to the city and he kept climbing up my body then he kept nibbling on my ears. He wouldn't stop no matter how hard I tried to get him to, so I just threw one simple fireball at him and then he ran off." Mako explained. The way Mako's expression was, made Korra somewhat surprised because she had never seen Mako like this before. He had probably done this when Bolin has run off when they didn't have a home before, but it still surprised

"He's like that. You knew when you decided to go out with him." He states matter-of-factly which only causes the Avatar more annoyance.
"Whose side are you on Bolin?"
"How could I ever pick between my best friend and my brother, Korra?" Bolin says feigning shock at the suggestion. Korra just rolls her eyes at him.
"I just don't understand him Bo. First he's all happy that I got us into the finals and next thing you know, he's yelling at me to pick up some slack." The earthbender shakes his head and hands her another dumpling.
"You know he's just nervous. I mean, if we win this, we won't have to rely on Toza anymore. We'd be able to support ourselves and most importantly, he'd be able to support you." Korra blushes at the truth of the last part. She and Mako have had a complicated relationship t
FearKorra sat meditating in the front of her temporary home, trying her hardest to ease the stress out of her mind. It seemed nearly impossible. Amon's solid mask and deep, intimidating voice was replaying over and over in her head. She closed her eyelids even tighter, ignoring the sweat that dripped down the side of her face. Breathe, just breathe, she reminded herself constantly, parting her lips and inhaling large amounts of cool oxygen into her lungs. For a moment she was at peace, staring into complete darkness, feeling her body go weightless and relaxed. Her head wasn't pounding anymore and her heart was no longer beating in her ears. They were both rather calm and forgetful. Her head tilted back the slightest bit, allowing the sun's warming rays to tickle her cheeks with warmth, allowing the very edges of her walls to begin to break down. Then footsteps. Fast, light footsteps. Sneaky ones. Stealthy ones. She tried to ignore them but they kept coming. They were getting closer.Fear4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"NO! I'm fi..i..ne!" She sneezed, she wasn't ok, they were so close to Tenzin, and it was getting colder to his home, but she was so stubborn and refused to take the scarf, Bolin wasn't cold at all to their surprise.
"Hey Korra maybe you should take it," Bolin said walking slightly behind.
"Hey Bolin, maybe you should shut up!" She said turning to him.
"Watch it," Mako said.
"Leave me alone!" She said truging through the snow trying to get ahead, she didn't get far.
"Let's just post camp its starting to become a blizzard out here," Bolin said stopping.
"Probably, Korra! stop being stubborn and just come to camp with us!" Mako said yelling making heat in his hands.
She kept going, he waited for the cold to get the better of her and she would come, she kept going.

"Where do you keep the tea bags?" Korra asked the older Firebender, pulling open a cupboard of the small attic kitchen, looking for the items in question.
"Next one over," he instructed her, watching the kettle closely. Korra opened the cupboard next to the one she had been previously searching and saw a few bags sitting in a glass jar, and reached inside for one. Inspecting it, she decided she'd like it well enough before shutting the cupboard door and placing said bag on the counter. Walking over to Mako, she bumped hips with him and gave him a smirk when he looked at her.
She stood beside him, and he knocked against her side, too. Korra smiled at him again, and then the kettle began to scream, signalling that it was ready to be removed. Mako took the contraption off the burner and poured the steaming water into a teapot beside him, and Korra grabbed the tea bag and placed it inside it before they relocated to the small table in the center of the ro

The Avatar didn't turn from her spot on the dock to look at the Firebender, instead hugging her arms around her tighter. Closing her eyes, she whispered, "Go away, Mako."
Mako stepped forward, signalling that he wasn't going to leave her out there alone. Placing a hand on her shoulder, he repeated himself, "What's wrong? What happened back there?"
Korra bit her lip. Just a few minutes before, she and Mako and Bolin had been sitting up in their attic apartment, going over and finalizing their plans for attack against Amon. They had been planning this ambush for weeks now, and they finally had everything little thing sorted out. It was foolproof nothing could go wrong. They were going to take Amon down, once and for all. But just as they were talking about the final battle with Amon himself, Korra had randomly up and left the brothers, confusing them and prompting Mako to go and confront her.
Biting her lip, Korra shook her head. She whispered something inau

Bolin hummed to himself, holding the laundry basket full of clothes. Mako was upstairs reading the newspaper and talking with Korra, and his brother had agreed to do the laundry that week, give his brother a break from it, and so there he was, making his way to the laundry room of the Pro-bending arena.
He went down multiple flights of stairs to get to the thing, which was inconveniently located in the basement. It was a large room filled with a plethora of washers and dryers so that when uniforms needed to be washed, it could be one big, mass cleaning. Toza had allowed the boys access to the room if they didn't make a mess there as Bolin opened the door to the room, he looked around and snorted. He couldn't make a mess of it if he tried it was already a hurricane of cluttered clothes and boxes.
Walking over to the nearest washer, Bolin placed the basket down and started to pick through the laundry. The majority of the clothes on top were his,

She was already beautiful without make up, but when she saw her face it just made her a completely different person. The make up made her look different but in a good way.Wow Part 2: Princess of Elements4 years ago in Romance More Like This
"D-did you really need to go this far?" Korra said still stuck looking at herself in the mirror.
"Of course! You're my first client and you're the avatar!" He said sitting in his seat exhausted.
She looked at him making her silk dress flow with her movements, "How'd you know?"
He looked up to the beautifully transformed girl, "I came to the gathering when you announced you were the avatar."

He'd just come from a rather taxing session of Pro-Bending training with his teammates, and as usual, his mood had turned sour from the moment he'd walked into the gym. It wasn't the fact they had to practice at the crack of dawn because they were rookies that bothered him, nor was it the pressure of the championships hanging over their heads.
No, it was the newest member of the Fire Ferrets that'd been getting under his skin lately, one Avatar Korra.
Now, there were several things that tweaked Mako's nerves, but this girl trumped them all. He'd never met someone quite like her before, so brash and hotheaded and in-your-face. In less than a month she'd managed to come barreling into his life and destroy nearly every ounce of normalcy she could find.
Today's practice had been one of the worst yet. After the fiasco with the Equalists and Bolin being captured, Mako had stepped up the intensity of their team workouts, both for the tournament

Mako knew he couldn't answer. He was too choked up-right in front of his brother.
"Mako?" asked Bolin. He never saw him like this. Bolin took this as a bad sign. Mako was still silent, lost in thought. Bolin sat down next to him. Slowly, Bo put his arm around him.
"You can tell me anything," said Bolin. Silence filled the room. "Bo... I... I don't know what to do," Mako admitted. "I... I don't know. Asami is beautiful and amazing but I just... something's not right," he added.
This added to Bolin's confusion and frustration. He knew Mako loved Korra, but he wouldn't admit it. Why was his brother so butt-headed? Even though Asami was everything Mako said she was, it still didn't feel right that she was with him.
Bolin put both his hands on Mako's shoulders. He turned Mako around to face him. Mako's hazel eyes shone in the moonlight, only to be filled with worry, sadness-and even love.

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.

Korra flew down the corridors of the Pro-Bending arena frantically, but it was no use she was already late. Arriving at the large, open gym doorway, she stopped abruptly and almost ran into the wood panelling.
She immediately smiled at the friendly voice that greeted her. Bolin the kind Earthbender that was always a great, invaluable friend to the Avatar. And the only thing that made those early morning practice bearable besides teasing the irritable Firebender along with his own younger brother. That also helped.
"Hey!" she looked up at him, regaining her breath and walking over to him, hiking her bag higher up on her shoulder. "Running a little late again... sorry."
"What else is new?" she heard the snarky, grumpy voice of Mako a few feet to her right and her face immediately fell at this quip.

He balled his hand into a fist and rigorously knocked on the door, he opened the door. He saw Tenzin kneeling down towards a bed.

He knew he wasn't going to like this conversation the moment he stepped into the hall. She was alone, looking into the waters of the bay below. Waiting. Unease had crept into the pit of his stomach as he approached her, asking if everything was alright. Something different shone in her eyes, something he could not identify. He was wracking his mind for a label when it was replaced with overconfidencethe kind one summons when they are nervous. The kind she summons when she's nervous. That's when her words rang through the arena's majestic hall.
And he did. He liked her a lot. When Bolin had been taken, she had been there to help him more than she could ever realize. Not only had she helped rescue Bolin from Amon's mysterious clutches, but she had saved him from himself. What he would do without Bolin he didn't want to think about it.

Asami inhaled deeply upon exiting the Police Headquarters, grateful for the sun's warmth on her cheeks. It felt as though she hadn't been outside forever, when in fact it had just been two days. That night that she and Mako and Bolin had all been arrested had been absolutely miserable. They were forced to sit in a painfully small, windowless room for hours and hours without any information, forbidden to leave or even speak.
Asami wasn't one for feeling claustrophobic or getting easily panicky, but she couldn't help it as she sat in the too quiet space for those long hours. Where was Korra? Was she okay? Would they be okay? When were they going to get out of there? What if Tenzin didn't come for them? What if he couldn't convince Tarrlok or Saikhan to release them? Answerless question after answerless question plagued her mind, but she kept her mouth shut, feeling as though everything was collapsing in on itself.

It wasn't like I had never been alone with Mako, this time just felt different. The day had been so long, and relaxation had been such a foreign thought, I didn't really see what he said coming.
"Do you mind if we sit for a while?"
It didn't really register the first time. He had been gloomy and focused all day. What would we possibly talk about? I mulled over throwing a sarcastic jab at him, and then decided that sitting with Mako might be nice.
"Yeah, that sounds great."
I wouldn't call it a smile, but his expression was happy. It was lighter than it had been all day. Although he didn't deserve it, I smiled at him.

She impressed the brothers tonight because she handled her element with such fierceness that it was almost distracting. With each barrage of attacks sent in her direction, she dodged and threw back with more force. It didn't take long for them to realize that she was good at her element and started to pick on Bolin.

Curling into a ball and throwing his pillow over his head, he mumbled his annoyance into it.
