Kiss THIS!

I am tired and my head hurts and I just got back from the doctor, but here is your drabble anyway.

Lie to Me

"KATARA!" He screamed, running towards her fallen form as fast as he could. "KATARA!"

Her body was limp in his arms—limp, but not lifeless. Not yet.

"Katara?" He whispered, relief swimming into him as he watched her blue eyes flutter open. "Thank God."

"Zuko?" She whispered, her voice sounding so fragile compared to how it usually did. "Is that you?"

"I'm here." He clutched her close to him; as if he was afraid she was going to vanish right then in his arms. "I'm here, I'm here, I always will be--I swear I'll never leave, I love you, I—" He stopped, placing gentle kisses on her body, from her lips to her neck to her forehead, stopping only to speak or to wipe the blood off of her pretty face.

"Promise me," he whispered, his voice sounding more desperate than before, his heart racing faster than ever. "Promise me you won't leave me, that you won't scare me like that again." I can't bear the thought of you dying, don't—

She laughed, another line of blood dripping off of her forehead and down her cheek. "I can't promise you that. No one is immortal." He was never so aware of how much blood she had lostuntil after she had said that. Suddenly, it was all too clear how bloody his white shirt had become, how deep her wound was, how fragile she seemed.

"Then lie to me." He whispered before he kissed her once more, all of his desperation seeping into one last kiss.

Disco had nothing to do with the last chapter, I merely felt silly while trying to think of a good chapter title and it came to mind. Hopefully this one is better.
