It had been some night for the small group. After they had gotten back they went to bed and then rose rather early so that they could continue their search. But for a group of people who got up early to search didn't exactly get any searching done. They all sat just around.
Toph bended a few pebbles around out of boredom until she realized something and dropped them. "Hey, I remember hearing about some old temple that was built to worship some rock! Maybe that's the rock were looking for!"
Everyone looked at her. They were surprised at her sudden idea but thought it was perfect.
"Well then why are we sitting here? Where is it?" Aang asked jumping off of a bolder.
Toph thought hard. "I'm pretty sure that it was about a day east of here."
"Lets go!" Aang shouted already on Appa's head.
Everyone climbed on and sat on the large beasts head. Aang give a simple "Yip, yip!" And it took off into the sky.
Zuko sat near the rear of the saddle and starred down at the ground. His new long raven hair blew in the wind, it bothered him how this mop kept getting in the way, and it was down to his tailbone! He didn't understand why this had happened to him. His uncle had said it was because he wasn't showing respect to women, but he was very polite and respective to women! It wasn't like he was like that old creep from last night. He just couldn't figure out why the spirits did this to him. As if they hadn't ruined his life enough. A laugh broke his thoughts. He saw Katara laughing and talking with Toph and her brother. Zuko had to admit her laugh was kind of nice. And her eyes were so blue and sparkly; they went well with her flowing chestnut hair… although her hair wasn't as pretty as his… it was still beautiful. He looked away from her. He didn't know why he was drawn to stare at her. She was very sweet to him, even though sometimes he would grumble at her and tell her to go away. He then fell asleep.
Zuko sat up quick. He wanted to be back to normal as soon as possible! He jumped off of the saddle to the ground where everyone else was.
"I am not so sure the Dukey stone is in this temple." Iroh said shaking his head. "It just doesn't seem-"
"Positive thoughts uncle!" Zuko put a hand up in front of the old general to silence him. The last thing he wanted to hear was that the Dukey stone wasn't here. Even though inside he knew his uncle was probably right.
The small group of travelers made there way inside the temple. It was empty they hadn't seen anyone anywhere. They searched all the rooms they came across but nothing.
Zuko sighed. Sokka came and walked beside the now female fire bender.
"Hey I feel sorry for you buddy." He talked as if talking to another boy even though it was a girl he spoke to. "Not every guy turns into a girl, and it just happened to be you." Zuko began to growl. "And not me!" Sokka gave a big grin, Zuko brought up his arm quickly and smacked the water tribe boy in the face with the back of his fist.
Sokka growled and started walking beside Toph.
"You did disserve it ponytail." Toph smirked.
"Wait doesn't Katara call me ponytail?" Sokka said rubbing his nose.
"Yeah but we switched up for today." Toph shrugged.
"That's right snoozles." Katara smiled resting her arm on her brother's shoulder. He moaned and walked ahead of them.
Iroh shook his head as he walked next to his female nephew (confusing right?). "Zuko as I tried to say before, this temple is deserted."
Zuko grumbled. "Well if that was the case you could have told me anyways!"
"But you said to have positive thoughts." Iroh pointed out.
Zuko began to steam, so Iroh took a step to the side.
"Sorry about that guys… I had heard it when I was a lot younger, I guess they left in between now and then." Toph said apologetically.
"That's ok Toph, At least you tried." Katara smiled and put a comforting hand on the blind girls shoulder.
"Well there isn't much point to staying here." Aang stated.
"But its really late, we should probably wait till morning to take off again." Katara said.
Aang agreed and they set out to look for some bedrooms that they could sleep in.
Zuko groaned and sat up. He decided to go sit by the window and gaze at the stars.
Katara stirred and woke up; she saw Zuko sitting at the window and went to go sit beside him. "What-cha thinking so hard about?"
Zuko didn't move his eyes from the skies. (Ha, poet!) "Nothing"
Katara frowned. "You can tell me."
"Your rather nosey you know."
"I am not no- yeah, yeah I am a bit nosey…" She couldn't lie; she always wanted to know what people where thinking about. "I'm sorry."
"It's fine." He simply replied. The two "girls" sat in the windowsill staring at the moon in complete and total silence.
