She walked up to the front door and knocked hard, the sound was loud, but it was the vibrations sent through the door that were important .
She waited a few moments before knocking again. The door creaked open and revealed a small, pale, elderly woman who jumped out and pulled Lin into a weak bear hug "Linny!"
"Hi mom" Lin whispered against her mother's hair, though the words went unnoticed now that her mother was deaf. Her mother was truly blind to the world now.
"Lin! Why haven't you visited more often!? I miss you!" Toph punched her daughter weakly in the shoulder before grabbing her daughter's hand and bringing her inside the large house.
Lin knew she couldn't answer the question, her mother would never be able to hear it. It broke Lin's heart to see her mother so frail. Her mother
Something WrongKorra knew something was wrong when Lin didn't come home on time. She knew something was wrong when Lin walked in silent.

"Lin?" Korra looked under the bed to find Lin crying, curled up in a ball, and biting her hand so hard, it drew blood. "Lin? What's wrong?" Korra asked while climbing out of bed and onto the ground.

StressLin dragged her feet through the entrance of her apartment before sending her armor to the floor and throwing herself onto the couch. She pulled out a cigarette and lit it while settling on the couch. It had been a long, tiring, and stressful day at work and Lin enjoyed the sensation of the stress dissipating in a smoky haze.More Like This
"Hard day at work?" Korra asked as she picked up Lin's armor and placed it gently in the closet.

"Lin?" Korra asked cautiously, looking at the floor before walking over and sitting next to Lin, waving the smoke away and coughing slightly. "I've been thinking, maybe you should stop smoking."

CuddlesThis was one of Lin’s favorite times. She was lying in bed with her arm around Korra. Korra of course was sleeping but Lin loved to just admire her as she slept with her head against Lin’s chest. She wished the moments like these would never end.

“Lin?” Korra said in groggy voice, one eye cracked open slightly “Why are you awake?” she said as she yawned.
“Just enjoying the moment.” Lin smiled softly “You can go back to sleep, you’re tired. I’m sorry if I woke you.”
