Avatar ficlet

Just a little Avatar ficlet. Sokka and Katara, set after The Southern Raiders episode.



Leaving Zuko and Aang behind her, Katara walked towards Appa. As she got closer, though, she slowed, until she was still. Looking at the ground, the girl took a deep breath.

"I didn't mean it."

Silence for a long moment, and she knew Sokka was studying her. "Yes, you did."

She winced, at least mentally. "I...."

"It's okay. You were upset."

Then there were arms around her, and Katara leaned into her brother, wrapping him tight in a hug as he held her. "I didn't kill him. I wanted to so bad." Head against Sokka's chest, she shook.

Her brother kissed her hair. "I know. But you didn't. And I'm proud of you."

He was Sokka. Her brother. And Katara knew he'd -always- be proud of her. No matter what. "Would you have...?"

Silence. "I don't know." He tightened his arms. "But I didn't want you to do it. You don't need blood on your hands."

Always protective. With a breath that was almost as much sob as release of air, she pressed her face tight against her brother and just focused on this.

He was Sokka. He'd always be there to protect her. That was what he had taken from their mother's death.

She'd have to be a little bit more like him.

*snuggles pair and then Fav's this*

Nicely done!
*smiles* I'm pleased with it. Thank you.
Daaaw...
Finally watched the rest of the series. And I still think Sokka and Iroh should be off causing chaos and solving crimes. It would be awesome.
