ZuTara - I Never Thought I'd Love You!
Chapter 10 The Truth:
It was 8 a.m. and everyone was asleep except Sokka. He couldn't sleep all night, because he was worried about his little sister.
Sokka was walking around the house thinking where Katara might be. All kinds of thoughts running through his head. He suddenly stopped "ZUKO!!!" he shouted, and rushed out of the house.
Sokka's shouting woke Aang and Toph up.
-Do you really think that
- Aang couldn't continue his question. He was afraid.
-I don't know said Toph but if it's true, then we better get going.
The two benders went to get ready.
Meanwhile, at Zuko's hideout, Katara was already awake and she could feel her stomach growling. She didn't have dinner last night and now she was awfully hungry. She didn't pay much attention to it, though. She was worried what Zuko was thinking of doing to her today!
After a few minutes the prince came in her room, carrying a tray of food.
-If you want to eat today, you'll have to tell me where you're hiding the Avatar!
-Aren't you tired? asked Katara staring at the floor.
-Of doing the same thing over and over again?
-I am, but I won't stop until I have him.
-Is this what you really want?
-I thought so. That's why I'm going to ask you something different Is this what you really need?
- Zuko was stunned, he didn't know what to say.
-So? asked Katara finally looking at him with her beautiful sapphire eyes, who were piercing him with every blink. She looked so innocent and vulnerable. He couldn't stand her judgemental look. It was killing him inside.
-Who are you to mess with my head?! asked Zuko in a calm but pissed off voice.
-You think that I don't care about anything else, but I do! shouted Zuko at Katara's face and she took a step backwards. You have no idea how hard it is for me to stop thinking about what you have said to me in the last couple of weeks! I can't get you out of my head. Your voice, your face, your words
even everything connected with the Avatar! I can't think of a plan to capture him without you appearing in my head. He walked up to her and grabbed her shoulders. Don't you see his voice as silent as possible I don't think that I can just leave all of you, because if I give up on my goal, I won't be able to see YOU anymore! Don't you see, Katara? It's not about the Avatar anymore. It's about you! I need you. Zuko slowly leaned to her lips and kissed her. Katara didn't move at all, because she was afraid that he would back away from the wonderful kiss. She wanted him, too. Her body suddenly shivered and Zuko pulled himself away from her. I'm sorry! I didn't mean to. after that the prince ran out of the room.
Katara was in shock. She didn't even get the chance to say anything, and to tell him how she felt. She slowly sat on the bed at took something to eat from the tray.
