Chapter 3: The Night Thieves
Katara reluctantly woke up. She felt so comfortable! This bed was softer than the bed in her room. She stretched. Her legs didn't go behind the bed, like they usually did.
She slowly opened her eyes. First, she saw Zuko. He was taking some clothes from his wardrobe, perhaps to cover his naked torso
-You finally woke up! I slept late because of you. Longer than usual. The servants are probably worried
Katara violently sat up in the bed. She couldn't say anything.
-What I Where am I?! And why here?!
She couldn't ask: 'What am I doing in your bed?'.
Zuko sat on the edge of the bed.
-Yesterday, we worked very late. You fell asleep when you were signing letters. I took you here.
Katara rubbed her forehead. She fell asleep? She remembered that she was sitting at the table, transferring drops of ink and copying the Fire Lord's signature. It was so monotonous. So soporific.
-And - she started, but

"Benders aren't any better than us normal folk," the man said, spitting derisively at Korra's feet. She clenched her hands into fists.
"I know that," she said through locked teeth. She took a deep breath, then tried to settle her first ever Avatar dispute. "Benders and non-benders are a source of balance for the world. The spirituality um it does stuff. I suppose."
The crowd laughed in her face, and Tenzin sighed heavily.
"Okay, I could have done better," she snapped at him. "Look, I'm trying my best, alright?"
"Come back when you got a handle on that, honey," the man said, and they all laughed.
Korra turned on him and fell into her favorite waterbending stance. The crowd took a collective step back, and Korra gave the daring man a hard smile.
"Come on, if you're so tough," she sneered.
"Korra," Tenzin snapped. "Stop this."
"Trying," she replied, not taking her eyes off her new opponent. He hesitated, then shrugged.
"What's the use?" he asked. "You're going to freeze

REQUEST Paperwork (Jean x Reader)You sat at one of the many dinner tables alone. You weren’t eating anything; in fact there wasn’t a plate in front of you but instead, a pile of papers were spread across the table. You held a pen in your hand, filling out form after form. You were filling the work out because it had to be done and it was one of the few things you were good at. You were never good in military training. You were assigned paperwork to do because of this reason. Surprisingly, you didn’t mind it at all. It had become a relaxing thing to do at dinner time.REQUEST Paperwork (Jean x Reader)2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Comfort. It's all you needed. Now that your closest friends are gone, you felt alone. You let out a sob, your knees tucked under your chin, with your arms wrapped around them. You didn't want to be alone, you need someone to tell you that it's going to be alright.

"M-Marco, they're gone. All gone. You're all I have left." you choked out. He shushed you, rubbing circles on your back.
"You're not alone (Y/N), just know that they are watching us from above, taking care of us." he smiled sadly. Marco wasn't just saying this to you, but to himself. Both of you felt the same way.

He was dead.
And there was nothing that you could do about it.
You scrunched the paper in your hands, curling farther into yourself and crying into your arms. The sound of your quiet sobs echoed through the evening pavilion. You mourned the loss of your father alone, quietly, and without a person to console you. You cried at the thought that you would no longer see his smile, hear his laugh, or feel his gentle touch. He was gone, and you missed him terribly. Your tears dripped onto the paper and smudged the words together.
Footsteps echoed down the pavilion, behind you. You ignored them, too bent on the thought of your friends death. But you quieted your sobs, bent over silently, the paper held in your hands.

You didn't respond.

Though it was barely past dawn, dappled light already fawned through the trees, casting illusions on the floor of the forest. You had time to observe details such as this from Jean's back as you flew through the branches. The wind lifted your hair and tossed it behind you. A small smile graced your lips through the grimace of pain. It was strangely peaceful.
You had encountered no titans so far, fortunately. You were grateful, yet at the same time, a strange suspense began to fill you. You knew it was inevitable for you to encounter a titan, but when? You stomach continued to curl into knots as the minutes passed by.

You looked up from the mirror you stood in front of, brush in hand. Rivaille stood in the doorway, one hand on the door frame, his face blank as usual. He wasn't wearing his normal uniform, instead opting for a button up shirt and black slacks, but still wearing his cravat, you noticed. The thought brought a small smile to your lips.
"Almost" You replied, giving you hair a few more strokes with the brush.
You looked up again, finding your daughter pushing her way into the room from between Rivaille's legs. She wore a simple home spun dress, her dark hair and eyes matched that of her father. She was truly growing in a beautiful girl. Rivaille always claimed it was your beauty she inherited. The thought made you blush.

Things never go the way they're supposed to. There's always one flaw , one slip up that can change a future.
The one ripple in Reiner's plan was believing that he could actually love someone without consequences.
Such a vile creature like himself didn't deserve the affection you had given him. The angel like kisses, the warm embraces. He didn't deserve any of it.
Though he didn't have to worry about it any longer. You were gone. One slip on your part , one ounce of fear in your heart and you were devoured. Right before his eyes.
He didn't want to believe it. Even though he had seen it happen, he refused to acknowledge the fact that such a caring person like you was snuffed out of the world.
He had locked himself up at first. Not showing any signs of emotion because of your death.

"Hey sis, where ya going? Home's the other way, duh!"
Maddie found herself coming to a gradual halt as she turned her attention to her approaching sister. Once Abby had caught up with her, she began to walk again, proceeding at a more leisurely pace. "I know," she answered quietly, "but I just wanted to head over to Gilbert's house and tell him about... dinner."
Never had that single word been spoken with more dread (not even on the rare and much fretful nights when their father had gotten in one of his "helpful" moods and decided to commandeer the kitchen). It had only been a day since the incident (or "Thong Gate" as Abby called it) where Dad had stumbled upon the panties she had secretly purchased from Victoria's Secret and Maddie was still filled with a painful concoction of emotions: worry, embarrassment, and fear.

PruCan - Verboten ch2The bells tolled twelve in the town square and in the bell tower of the church. It was noon on Easter Sunday in Germany, and the great clock set into the wall of Bussy's town hall as well as the one adorning the church reflected that time. However, in the Williams-Bonnefoy household the great grandfather clock in the atrium, with its dark bass tone echoing through the bare hall, was one chime short. Here, as in all the French households, it was only eleven AM, no matter what time the occupying soldiers insisted they were living on.PruCan - Verboten ch23 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Matthew counted the hollow chimes, sure that he could feel each one of them reverberating within his heart in the same way they did the heavy mahogany body of the clock.

Any attempt to persuade her to relinquish even a morsel before then would end in d
PruCan - Verboten ch3Spring blossomed gently into summer, the late June weather fine and hot, and the villagers and Germans of Bussy found themselves strangely at ease. They were too far removed from the rest of France, from the rest of the world on these lovely summer evenings. Gentle stirrings of warm breezes mingled with the humming of insects, sweetly drifting over young couples as they visited in secret. The Germans and the French were by no means reconciled, and being found out by the rest of the village would create scandal and uproar, but who could resist the sweet intoxication of young love when it called?

It was posted on notices on every corner that Matthew Williams-Bonnefoy somberly wheeled his bicycle past, and he was hard pressed to remember what Bussy had been like before the occupation had begun.

The world swam before his eyes and his stomach turned. Slowly, his brain pieced together an answer from the swirling chaos. *Maka doesn't want to be my meister anymore?!* It echoed over and over but didn't seem to sink in. He stared at Maka, waiting for her to take it all back, for her to tell him it was all just a terrible joke.

I could still feel Soul’s delicious warmth as we rode away to our apartment in comfortable silence. I went up to get my duffel bag and safely tucked it behind me before heading towards the airport.
Soul parked his bike to the nearest elevator and took my hand in his. We rode the elevator in silence, our hands locked in a frozen state. I stared at our reflection from the sliding doors with great interest. We looked like the ideal pairing of a man and woman rather than a weapon and meister. I’ve never considered Soul as just a weapon nor just that friend. He means a lot to me, but the reason for that entitlement still remains unknown to me, he was just important.

How Avatar: the Last Airbender impacted me.As a Christian, I was raised to believe that God can speak to us through anything.

What I've learned in the past two year is that, a lot of times, the things that have the biggest impact in our lives come in the most unassuming forms. They're the mundane parts of your average routine, the things you experience in everyday life to which you never pay any mind. Little things like the grumpy old sales clerk, the adopted family member, or in my case, the television series you thought you would never watch.
