“She was kind of cute,” Sokka said as Omashu grew smaller and smaller still.
“Yeah she was a complete babe,” Katara snarked rolling her eyes. “Except for the ‘trying-to-kill-us’ part. I can’t believe you.”
Katara silently wondered why her brother would even entertain such a thought.
“Are you feeling alright Sokka?” Aang asked innocently.
“I’m fine,” Sokka said with a smile that made Aang and Katara grimace.
After an awkward pause the young warrior added. “Her firebending was amazing, wasn’t it?”
“I guess,” Aang agreed. Katara looked off into the distance, not wanting to talk to
Sokka stared out into space.
Katara sighed and crawled over to sit close to her brother. “You’re still grieving Yue aren’t you?”
Sokka’s smile disappeared and he nodded.
“I’m sure you’ll find another amazing woman,” Katara pointed out.
“But maybe I already found one?” Sokka suggested in a tired voice.
“I think you can do better than her,” Katara said with a smile. “She may be pretty like a rose, but she’s got thorns.”
Sokka smiled thoughtfully. His sister was right. He just wanted to believe it would be possible for him to fall in love again so he was just trying to force it. “Thanks Katara.”
