as you shook your head in disbelief

that made you run for cover
that made you leave me floundering
it said " positive " and you ran
slow down slow down don't slip now.

gasping choking breath
found my voice floating in rivers

as you watched me dripping

that made you silent and begrudging
that made your fingers grip me hurting
they said " i'm smothering " and you stole my breath
let loose let loose i'm fading.
I cannot fear this
intense pounding heart
found my release in the wind
flew away today
as you stood helpless
what did you whisper to me
that made salty rivers upon your cheeks
that made you look anywhere but within me
you said " i hate you " and you didn't lie
forgive me forgive me i trespass.
I can tear this

Unsecure in all of my facets.
Unbelieving...no I do believe.
The graying has returned, not on silent feet.
Not in stealth and secret, but boldly.
The tears have grown immensely,

Teenage angst and creativity allowed to reign free.
I wore black then, read vampire books, and slept forever.

A dense fog blocking out all truth that could save us.
Cloaks of shadow and doubt engulf us.

Clouds swirled dully in a dreary, drab, and utterly depressing shade of gray. Humidity hung heavily in the air, portending the monsoon season in the Fire Nation. It was nasty and sticky and dark out: all the more reason to say inside and sleep in.
These were Katara's thoughts as she stay curled up under the sheets of her new bed, burying her head farther into the plush pillow. Thus, when Fire Lord Zuko moved lazily from her side and began stripping himself of his sleepwear, she protested grumpily.
"Mmm, come back," she muttered, turning over with what seemed to be a great deal of effort. "It's too early."
Zuko glanced over at her with mild amusement as he tied the strings of his loose red pants in a careless bow at his hips. Her eyes were mere slits of sapphire against the bronze of her skin, watching his every move. "It's nearly eleven," he argued placidly.
"Yeah, it's too early," she repeated.

"Your room, Princess Katara," a servant murmured, gesturing vaguely to an almost painfully orate door. The servant's voice wavered as she said princess; clearly, Azula had led her to believe that all royal women were demanding and cruel.
With scrutinizing eyes, Katara looked over the skinny girl. "What is your name?"
A look of fear swept over the face of the questioned servant: whenever Azula had asked for the names of palace staff, she was either going to use them for target practice or have them banished for not accomplishing one of her outrageous, mundane tasks to perfection. "Kai La, p-princess," she managed to stammer.
"Then thank you, Kai La," offered Katara, giving her a hint of a bow to show her gratitude. Again, Kai La's features were consumed with surprise before a delicate smile crept over her thin lips. The princess of the Southern Water Tribe, bowing to a palace maid!
"Of course! I mean, uh, you are very welcome, princess." Red faced and dazed,

Why, Katara wanted to know. Why did he have to screw up everything she had worked so hard to perfect, all order in camp, the group's entire schedule?
She always had a planned outline of her day that she followed strictly. Roll up her sleeping bag, wash her face, brush her hair, slip her dress over her bindings, and go out to start breakfast. Clean the dishes after the morning meal and then gather laundry so everyone could have clean clothes. Lunch was a free-for-all: if you were that hungry, get up and make your own food.
Training sessions were always next, when the sun was almost exactly overhead. First she would spar with Toph, then with Aang, then with Zuko. She alternated days training in hand-to-hand combat with Suki, learning how to knock out a grown man in a single punch, between days where Sokka would teach her how to properly hold a dagger or a sword.

Mischievous Li stood sandwiched between his parents Gansu and Sela, who did their best to stand in front of him like a shield. Childhood friends Mai and Ty Lee were standing together. Mai's face betrayed her phlegmatic barrier with the slightest hint of tears and Ty Lee was full out bawling. Sokka, Suki, Aang, and Toph held hands the best they could, digging their heels into the ground for support.

"Congratulations, my Lord," one of the many palace servants said to Fire Lord Zuko, inclining his head in warranted respect. The lord nodded slightly, confused, but brushed it off with a curt word of thanks. Zuko continued though the palace, alone, heading to his mother's beloved turtle-duck pond.
On his way, he was stopped four more times by various maids and butlers that granted him good luck and best wishes. He responded politely each time, but, truth be told, he didn't have the slightest inkling as to why he was being congratulated. The fifth time a servant stopped him and gave his blessings, Zuko lost his patience and questioned him.
"I must be missing something important, because I don't have the slightest idea why every single person I've seen has told me congratulations or good luck. Can you tell me what the hell is going on?"

The night was absolutely perfect. The pristine silver-white sand caught the waxing moon's bright light, each grain of minute rock a parallel to the star-freckled sky. The towel that Katara had flopped over the sand was just out of reach of the high tide's greedy fingers and the cool evening breeze rippled across the ocean's surface in gentle surges.
Too bad her neck was too sore and her back was too stiff to really enjoy it.
With a small bottle of a sweet-smelling, sparkling drink in one hand and her towel in the other, she had shuffled down to the shore to relax--maybe the salty brine of the waves would help to loosen up her terrible tense muscles or at least help clear her mind. She now laid on her stomach, her arms curled up by her head and one cheek pressed comfortably into the plush towel beneath her. Her pale ivory bindings exposed the majority of her tanned skin to the night and gooseflesh shot over her arms at regular intervals. She watched the sky on an a

"Hey, Suki, watch this!" Sokka crowed, hefting a gold-plated sword with both hands and chopping at the musty air with precision, the way Master Piandao had shown him. Suki turned from rummaging through a dusty old trunk, tossing silk scarves that were ridden with fire-moth bites across the lacquered wood floors.
"That's great, honey," she said almost offhandedly. Still, Sokka grinned with satisfaction.
"Wow, Sokka!" Toph exclaimed, turning in his general direction. "It looks like you could be a master!" Her unseeing eyes were open wide and her mouth set in an uncharacteristic smile.
The Water Tribe boy's face lit up. "Really? Master Sokka. That sounds--hey, wait." He crossed his arms as Toph snickered.
"Aw, why do you insist on doing that to him?" Suki asked teasingly. With sympathy, she kissed his cheek gently before returning to her search.

"I'm touched. I don't deserve this," Zuko murmured gratefully.
"Yeah, no kidding," Katara snapped, partaking in the conversation for the first time. Her glare was flooded with a coldness that was equivalent to the ice she bent. Troubled stares followed her retreating form that drifted toward the side of the cliff.
"What's with her?" Sokka asked, not really caring.
Dignified and determined, Zuko stood. "I wish I knew," he replied before taking off after the distressed bender. He had proven himself worthy to the Blind Bandit, the Kyoshi Warrior, the Water Tribe idiot, and the Avatar. It was the cryptic carapace of the water maid that he couldn't seem to make a dent in, let alone break down.

The confused young man shuffled out of his ragged blankets and into the humid night, rubbing his good eye and stifling a yawn. He stretched and was suddenly on guard, glancing around anxiously for whoever dared sneak into their camp. Zuko spotted the feminine silhouette on the hilltop, standing gracefully with the moon as her backdrop. Even standing perfectly still, she seemed to possess a fluid elegance similar to the gentle push and pull of the ocean's tide.
"What are you waiting for, Blue Spirit?" she called out quietly, raising her voice just enough so he could hear her.
His eyes darted around and he spotted a blue oblong shape resting against the side of his tent. Up

He was pacing around the room like a scared little kid or rather a nervous young man who had something weighing heavily on his mind. Hakoda could easily guess what it was which was why he kept wondering to himself why the young man didn't just spill it already and save himself the aggravation. Sokka had told him what they were up to that past week - that boy couldn't keep a secret to save his life - and Gran-Gran had also spilled the exciting news, which had been a bit of a surprise since she was unbelievably tight-lipped about ot

"No, Toph. I'm not playing another one of your silly lie games."
"Why not? It'll be fun."
Katara crossed her arms and narrowed her eyes at the insistent earthbender. "N. O. No."
"Why not, Katara?" Toph asked again as she leaned back and folded her hands behind her head.
"Because, Toph," Katara said her name with force, "you always know when we're lying, you spill all our secrets, and I'm sick of you prying into our lives."
Toph shook her head and countered with an innocent flare, "That's not true. I would never do that."
Katara rolled her eyes. "Now who's the liar?"
"Hey, if you guys would just tell the truth, there wouldn't be a problem," the earthbender said with a shrug of her shoulders.
Though his mouth was full of food, Sokka still managed to get out his own opinion. "It's not that we don't wanna tell the truth cuz I'm all about being honest."
"Liar," Toph mumbled.

AN OFFICIAL SEQUEL TO DISTRACTED
(I refer to that one-shot in this story, so I recommend that you read that one first)
The firebender was in love with a Water Tribe girl. Shaking the distraction from her mind, Katara reined in her thoughts, forced them into submission, and tried to focus on the flow of water in her hands. Up and down. Back and forth. The clear, blue liquid moved with grace through her fingers and around her body in measured motions of fluidity. In. Out. Push. Pull. The only sounds that reached her ears were the misty splash of the waves and the crash of the ocean's current against the sand. Her mind was fixed on the present. Nothing else existed. No past. No future. Only the here and now. So, are you pleasantly distracted?
The water abruptly dropped from her command and the waterbender stood as rigid as a block of ice. Why did his voice have to constantly disrupt her thought

The Meeting.Third day of school was tourture. I walked to my last period class, which was unfortunately geometry. Upon entering the room, I was assaulted with insults and small missiles.

The teacher entered the room and the idiots stopped the torment, but I knew it would resume as soon as she left the room, as she inevitably would. I got the feeling she didn't care what the other students did to me, the freak she was so unlucky to have to teach, and thus let the other kids pick on me.
"Well, class. It seems we have a new sudent in our class. Please welcome, apropriately, boys, Miss Katrine Wilden."

The damp leaves had already soaked through her tunic. Her hair was out of its usual braid with brown locks flying with the slight breeze. She sank lower into the forest floor.

A twig snapping caught her attention as she quickly stood and readied her water.
The sigh came from the trees and soon a small fire came to life. the teenage boy soon came into view without his usual armor. With gold eyes blazing, he took another step toward the girl.
"I'm sorry. Um. I'm...not going to attack you. I promise."
The girl's eyes narrowed farther as she watched the fire in his hands. The night was bright without a cloud in the sky. "What do you want?"
"I-uh. I found something that I think belongs to you." He brought a hand from his tunic revealing-

Fire Lord Zuko sat staring from his balcony as children of nobles ran between his gardens. The masks of spirits flashed before his eyes and he chuckled when he saw the mask of the Blue Spirit and another of the recent Avatar Aang. He sighed and moved to his fireplace. She would be here soon.
It had become a tradition between the two. A meeting would be secretly planned for a time of silence for the two benders.

"Of course! I just wish it wasn't him. I don't like it."
The Water Tribe teens sat around the fire as the waterbender stirred tonight's dinner and the warrior stared hungrily at the stream rising from the cooking pot. Katara shot her brother a look and returned to watching the firebender and Aang. She sneered as he rolled his eyes at his student. Zuko.
"I swear if he rolls his eyes one more time..."
Her threat went unnoticed by Sokka who started to look at the swirling meat wlith his boomerang in hand. Katara smacked him with her wooden spoon.
"Katara you're gunna burn the meat!" Sokka whined.
Arching her eyebrow with a questioning look, Katara checked the dinner and started filling everyone's bowl.
