The next Morning things were a bit awkward; I really wanted to be near him again. So I took every chance I got. So did Aang. We were both trying to be next to each other, we brought each other food, played hand games together. (By the way Aang's been trying to teach me hand eye coordination even if I don't have my vision) Aang got really nervous around Katara too. More than usual. For the second we had alone that day, Aang and I planned to stay up late and talk again.
"Aang? Are you awake?" I asked softly, shaking him back and forth. He was. As I shook him, a smile appeared on his face.
"Aang, get up!" I dragged his arms and pulled him up to his feet.
Aang suddenly grabbed my hand and lead us toward the nearest tree.
"Toph, what we did last night…" he started, but then I interrupted him. I knew what he was going to say.
"Was the best thing that has ever happened to me," I lay my head on his shoulder, "Listen Aang, I know you like Katara, but…" I blushed, "Do you like me that way too?"
Aang gave a nervous giggle. "Look at it this way," He told me, and then he gave me a really long lasting kiss. "Do you ever see me do that with Katara?"
There was a quick shuffle and then a rock was kicked across the ground.
"Aang, somebody's watching us." I grabbed his hand tightly, not because I was afraid, but because I felt like holding on to a part of him tightly.
"Where did it come from?" He asked.
"Over there, by that bush" I told him.
"How come you guys are up so late?"
It was Katara.
"Uh…" Aang muttered.
I let go of Aang's hand and scooted to the side.
"Oh, I see, well bye…" Katara said, she sounded broken hearted. Good.
"See you tomorrow Love birds." It was Sokka's voice, he had been spying too.
I felt like saying, Neaner, neaner, neaner, I've got Aang and you don't right in Katara's face! Then kicking her. Really hard.
