The wind surrounding the Western Air temple was lazy that morning, hardly managing a breeze, and it made the world seem quiet and at peace. The sun also seemed to rise lazily that morning, slowly bringing light over the horizon. Katara stirred in her sleep--she was having a wonderful dream that didn't want to wake up from--but she had a strong feeling that someone was watching her. She resisted opening her eyes. She had this feeling often, and it always turned out the same.
"No one's there," she thought to herself. "No one's ever there. Just stay asleep..." But it was too late for her wonderful dream. It had already ended and been replaced by this nagging feeling, so she sighed and gave in, opening her eyes. There he sat, in the middle of her room, his dark, ruffled hair hung messily in his face and eyes and his gol

Katara's knees hit hard against the ground as she was thrust into Ozai's secret chamber. She pushed herself up onto her hands, taking notice of her reflection in the polished, gold-tiled floor. Her shoulders and stomach were exposed in the red, one-shouldered garment that she had on underneath her Fire-nation armor. The guards had her remove the stolen armor and confiscated her water pouch when they "captured" her. Her hair was a tangled mess and her wild eyes looked unfamiliar as they gazed back at her. In the reflective gold tile, Katara's eyes narrowed on the Dai Li agents that were perched high above her. The ceiling and walls were made entirely of stone—if they decided to attack, she would be in trouble. She felt the room out, searching for the pull of a water source. She clenched her jaw as not so much as a drop of water could be felt in the small, yet luxurious room.
As a bead of sweat made its way down the side of her face,

Neither the Waterbender or Firebender bothered donning their helmets at this point. The fact that Azula came to find Katara made it clear that the Firelord and the palace guards were aware that there was an intruder. The Fire-nation prince furrowed his brow and readjusted his paralyzed sister who was slung over his shoulder. Zuko and Katara hurried down the corridors towards the dungeon. They should've tied up the guard outside of the armory earlier—they'd been careless. The only thing that has worked to their advantage was the fact that no one seemed to know that Zuko was with the Waterbender. They overtook the two measly guards that stood out front of the dungeon entrance with ease, which only worried the Fire-nation prince further.
He knew his father would want immediate capture of any intruder, especially one so closely tied to both himself and the Avatar, so where were all the guards?
Zuko locked Azula in the one of the first

"Personally, I think she's more trouble than she's worth," Zuko sighed, crossing his arms. Sokka carried the struggling Fire-nation princess over his shoulder, heading toward Appa with the rest of the group.
"Yeah, maybe so. But at this point, I think she might be our only chance at saving Aang," Sokka muttered, shifting her back up onto his shoulder. Azula grunted and bit down on her mouth gag. Zuko grimaced as his sister glared up at him. He felt strange as he stared back at her, not lifting a finger to stop these people from holding her captive. The Firebender broke his gaze with Azula and led his eyes to find Katara.
The Waterbender marched forward, her eyes somber. The prince sighed, feeling guilty. If only he hadn't sent Aang away on that stupid missionnone of this would have happened. He tore his eyes away from the Water-tribe girl.
Katara would never forgive him if the Avatar ended up dead at the end of all of

Sokka's head pounded loudly against his temples, his stomach turning violently inside of him. Usually he could approach things calmly and logically, but his only sister was gone, kidnapped by a crazy and vicious Fire-nation princess. The Water-tribe warrior thought this was enough to worry him to death, but he'd just discovered that Toph was now missingand so was his ex-enemy, prince Zuko. He massaged his skull, feeling dizzy.
The Water-tribe native despised the fact that his gut was telling him Zuko could have possibly taken the blind Earthbender after weeks of winning over their trust. He swallowed hard. That's rightweeks. Zuko had chased the group around for a good year and had searched the world for the Avatar for years before that, yet it only took a couple weeks for him to gain their trust? Sokka shook his head, shaking away his negative thoughts. There was no way the prince had kidnapped Toph. He knew how close the Earthbender

With a deep sigh, the young, gray-eyed Airbender fell back onto a patch of soft, thick tall grasshe was exhausted. Since they'd arrived at their new cliffside campsite, the days had flown by. Everyday that passed by was full of nothing but sleeping (very little of it), eating, and rigorous training for the Avatar and his bending mastersas the day of Souzen's comet drew closer and closer.
Aang worked mostly on his Firebending as it was the newest element for him to learn. And with all the tiring activity involved with Zuko's methods of training and being around the constant heat of the flamesAang was left feeling sweaty, irritated, and miserableespecially today. The sunlight was bright and warm. Every thing it touched instantly lit up and became more vibrant and beautiful. A cool breeze carried the sweet smell of the sea across the lush, grassy field and the sky above was full of huge, white clouds. As if this weren't enough,

Katara sat up in her sleeping bag, rain thundering against the outside of her tent. She grasped at her throbbing head, her eyes squeezing shut from the pain.
"Ugh," she grumbled to herself as she thought about each cup of juice she downed last night, "I'm going to kill Sokka."
Zuko's face flashed in her mind and her eyes flew open.
"That's rightI was with Zuko last night," she thought to herself as she glanced around her tent, "How did I end up here?"
She looked down at herself and saw that she was wearing the prince's red, long-sleeved tunic. Her breath caught in her throat and her whole body suddenly felt hot. Her head started swirling with a few vague recollections of the previous night.
"You and I can be friends. I want to be your friend, Katara."
Katara's heart stopped in her chest.
"Knock knock, sugar queen," Toph called through the tent door. The Waterbender's heart jump started and her eyes

Toph sat around the boiling pot of lunch, her mouth watering. She wiggled her toes against the Earth. "Where is Zuko? That loser is taking forever to get back here with Katara and Aang,"Toph thought to herself. She had half a mind to get up, get some food and start without thembut Katara had said once that mealtime was her favorite time to spend with everyone. The Earthbender was sure it would offend her or hurt her in some way. So she folded her arms over her grumbling stomach as she waited, along with Teo, Haru, The Duke, Suki, Sokka, and Sokka's dad. She lowered her head as only Teo sat any where near her. The Duke didn't want anything to do with her since she started calling him "Dukie", Haru always sat as near as he could to Sokka's Dad (probably 'cause he missed his own dad), and, of course, Sokka and Suki always sat together. She wished Zuko was here so she could talk to him. What was taking him so long anywa

Sokka crouched down in the shadows at the end of the main square, his heart still aching. He struggled to keep his concentration off of Suki, off of all the things they'd been through together. A group of Fire-nation citizens passed by and he tugged down on his hood, covering his face. Taking a quick glance around, there was already a large crowd gathering. Fire-nation soldiers have been here well before dawn, surrounding the center stage. The Water-tribe warrior's eyes shot around at the men, women, childrenfamiliesthat stood around, ready to watch the Avatar's execution. Sokka frowned at the disturbed, corrupt nation. It raised a massive, negative question inside of him.
Even if they managed to defeat the Firelord, how would peace ever be gained with people like this who are so willing to follow their leader's hate? It's been 100 years of propagandagenerations have grown up on the idea that the Avatar is the real enemy
Pure And TrueHe breaks my heartPure And True in Free Verse More Like This
With his perfection.
Proving me wrong
Changing my mind
Making me write
Or cliche love poems
He turns me into a giddy
Little girl, the "normal"
The regular teenage girl
That too is a cliche.
And I suppose our love is too.
But is it so sweet,
That he so often
Has to pull me to my feet
Or cheer me up?
We are far from normal
Sometimes even further
But truth is,
We fall apart all the time.
Luckily, it's mostly
Into each others arms.
But we're different
We've been broken,
But sewn back together.
Our stitches entwined.
I think we're better
Than most couples
I hope everyone gets to feel
What this love is like
At least once in their life.
Because nothing has ever felt better.
Because we may be broken and battered
But this love is pure and true.

I cry and blood pours down my face.
My feet walk on the sky,
Kicking through the clouds.
My head drags on the ground,
Dragging across rocks and dirt.
Leaving me battered and cut.
My heart thinks.
My brain loves.
Tears beating through my heart,
Blood I cry out of my eyes,
I'm breaking reality,
Making my own.
My lungs breath water
And I drink air.
I don't think
The world I'm from
I'm changing it myself
Doctors say I've lost it
Tipped over the edge,
I've been standing on it for a long time.
They try to strap me down
But I'm as light as air
And their heavy bonds,
Fall right through me.
My head is firmly
Planted in the ground,
My feet in the sky.
I'm leaving behind
This world so unfair.
Ask me if I care.
My reality is better
Than the truth.
Why don't you come with me?
It's easier here.

It's not tearing us apart.
We're already torn.
I can feel it in everything.
We are broken
My issues finally broke
Our beautiful relationship
I wore us down
We don't even look forward
to seeing each other
Being alone together is painful
And when we're with people
I feel myself being pushed away
I understand all of this
Me and my problems
They've destroyed me
Now they're working on you
I used to be the empty one
Now it seems we've been drained too
You're never cheery or lovey with me anymore
The things about you
That made my happiness return
For the short time I was in your light
They're gone, this took those away.
We are just,
Empty vessels now.
I've offered the knife
For you to cut me free from you
But you always refuse.
I've even tried to end this
For your sake.
But of course, you'll have none of that.
Please don't take it to mean
I don't love you or want you anymore.
All of this is,
Just to save you.

With broken wings
A shattered halo
With a shattered soul.
Broken from the fall.
She fell from
Such great heights.
She couldn't reach anymore.
It got to be too much.
Then the expectations
Turned gravity on stronger.
Failure shattered her wings
And she was left to fall
With no one to catch her.
Pure white wings,
Stained with blood and dirt.
Her innocence left in the clouds.
She doesn't belong down on the ground.
The demons crawl out and surround her
Before long, they've consumed her.
She can't fight them off.
She's too weak,
She's mourning her lost wings.
She used to be perfect,
Now she was just another monster.

When you laid your head against my shoulder
With your hand on my chest
And closed those beautiful blue eyes
Your slender form embraced by my arms
I felt so proud to be able to call you mine.
At rest, and at peace
Like silken thread in the moon's light.
Like pure, soft snow.
The easy rhythm of your breathing.
Like waves lapping gently at the shore.
The beat of your heart.
Close, clear, comforting.
You stir, and nuzzle contentedly into my neck.
I am powerless to do anything but smile.

Hard to give.
Easy to lose.
How can anyone tell who is worth it?
Let the wrong people in, and they'll walk all over you. Abuse you. Break you.
Keep the wrong people shut out, and you could be losing something special. Love. Care.
Where does the distinction lie?
Can anyone ever really be trusted?
Or is life just one big, long game of deceit?
I don't know.
Maybe I'll never know.
It isn't a concept that comes easily to me.
I've walked for so long with walls up.
Walls against everyone who ever knew me.
They've served me well. Kept me from harm.
But they've also kept me in my solitude.
Sure, I have friends.
But the number of them I can fully trust is easily defined:
It isn't their fault. It really isn't.
Mine for being weak.
Mine for being selfish.
Mine for putting my trust in all the wrong people.
Mine for being scared to put it in the right ones.
I am afraid.
There is only one who can allay these fears.
One that has proven herself.

Two words, written on the back of a picture.
Long since forgotten, recently discovered.
That faded, slightly tattered picture of a girl.
The words, definitely in her writing.
He remembered that much.
Elegant and beautiful, like the writer herself.
Dark hair, blonde streaks
Like shadows painted through with light.
Eyes reminiscent of Autumn leaves.
Sun-kissed, tanned skin.
Smiling up like an angel captured in time.
He hadn't seen the owner of that face in over seven years.
But still, the fragments of memories drifted through his head.
Images fast and frenzied in a slideshow of flash photography.
Images of good times and bad.
Images of love and hate.
Friends and enemies.
He missed her, too.
If only he could remember who she was.

In a cage of steel bars.
She can't break out.
She can't fly away.
As if her wings were clipped.
She longs to soar.
She longs to be free.

Watching her inside that prison.
The one they devised especially for her
Through empty promises
And false hopes
That one day, they'll let her out.
The bird trusted her keeper.
Her keeper used that trust.
Again and again.
If she ever wants the key
She'll have to take it from them.
Or by force.
One day, I hope that little bird will have the strength to fly again.
The EndHair of silkThe End in Free Verse More Like This
Turns to ash of death
No phoenix rises this time
As blue eyes become grey
Promises and dreams
Drown in the sorrow
Nothing but a smoky haze
Your lips used to taste so sweet
Now they’re only bitter with regret
The sting of your love
Like the blade of a dagger
Toxin in my veins
Addictive and fatal
It may be bad for me
But I can’t stop.
My heart died for you.
