It really trapped me in the words, I was so absorbed in it and Azula's thoughts, such a great story indeed, I wish for more but then I also feel that adding anything might break the whole calming atmosphere of it and the perfect ending. Very well done, if only I could sit here all day to compliment it.

Such lovely prose. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Wow, I'm shocked that no one has left a review for this wonderful story yet.
The only critique I can offer is to perhaps read it over again to check for clarity. The meaning of one sentence still eludes me:
'only Mai who uses that name. Whose eyes glaze over, whose mouth softens just a little when she says it.'
Otherwise, the plot was beautifully executed, although I only wish I could see more.
You did an excellent job in characterizing Azula, in depicting the way she analyzes people and actions. I particularly enjoyed the emphasis you placed on Mai dipping the rice; that was very interesting and a sort of focus you don't see very often.
Your use of similes is also beautiful. That second-to-last paragraph was so poetic. One of my favorite lines from the entire piece was 'snips her sentences like silk'.
I will definitely read more of your work in the future.
