Prolog. Pt 1. Katara

"You what!" Katara scraim as she confronted her grandmother gave her "No, I wont do it!" She crossed her arms and sat on the floor.

"Katara, you are a princess." her grandmother calmly explained "It is your duty. An honor."

"I don't care about this 'honor'! I wont do it."

"It has already bean decided. Your ship will set off in the morning. You are to go and pack."

"Ya, I'll pack all right" Katara muttered as she walked out of the room.

She walked into her room and slammed her door. She glared at the letter that she had received this morning. Her mind was made up, she wasn't going to do it.

She walked over to the letter and re-read it for the fifth time, it read-

Dear Princess Katara of the Southern Water Tribe,

We are pleased to inform you that we have announced a truce with your tribe, on one condition. An alliance through mirage. We already have a suitor chosen for you. My son, Prince Zuko of the Eastern Fire Tribe. We are sending a ship for within three days. If you do not accept this Proposal, we shall send an attack force to destroy your tribe, children and all. But if you do accept, we shall not harm you or any of you people.

'Thats right.' Katara thought sarcastically 'Threaten me, Then I'll give you what I want...'

We a-whate your answer with great anticipation, Fire Lord Ozai of the Fire Nation.

Katara could tell he didn't right often. And his spelling was horrible, not that she had any room to talk.

There was a knock at the door and Sokka's voice rang through. "Katara, can I come in?"

Katara wiped her eyes clean and answered "Ya, I'm decent."

Sokka opened the and stepped in slowly, closing the door behind him "Is every thing okay?"

"You know, don't you?" Katara looked out her window. three stories, that should be about...thirty-two feet.

"Ya. Im sorry there isn't any thing I can do..." Sokka sighed.

"Do you still have that forty foot rope?" Katara asked, turning to him.

"Ya, its under my bed. Why do you ask?"

"Im running away"

"You cant do that! What about theour tribe?"

"But why do I have to do this? Why can't you marry his sister?"

"I don't know. But you have to do this. If you don't, you will be sentencing us all to death."

Katara sighed in defeat. "Your right." Tears streamed down her cheeks. She hadn't thought about that.

"Katara!" She heard a familiar voice in the distance.

"Oh no." Katara jumped "What am I gonna tell Aang?"

"That is a problem."

"Your enjoying this, aren't you?"

"Wouldn't miss it for the world" Sokka smirked.

"Good, because your gonna tell him."

"And how did you come to that conclusion?"

"Like this."

The next thing Sakka knew he was in the hall way. With Aang.

"Hay Sokka, have you seen Katara? I wanted to give her her birthday present. She's sixteen today right?"

"um, Aang, there's something you need to know..."

About five minits later and a lot of tension, Aang burst into Katara's room, right in the middle of her getting dressed after a shortshower.

"Uh., pink suits you." Aang tried to laugh the nervousness off.

"Aang..." Katara's eyes watered. She ran up to him and hugged him, forgetting that she was in her under-stuff.

Aang blushed like crazy. He was two years younger that Katara, yet they had bean going out for a couple months now. Aang was shy and it took them a month and a half to kiss, and they didn't do it that often.

"Katara, I'm sorry about this. You don't deserve to have to do this.."
