Written for the avatar100. Exactly one-hundred words. Darkside!Aang speculation.
Always be wary of a man who intentionally harms an animal, especially if they do so cruelly, Gyatso had always told him, for it doesn't take much for him to harm a person as well.
Aang always took Gyatso's words to heart. Throughout his life he never once did harm to anything, not if he could help it.
But as the vulture-bee's corpse fell from the sky, Aang wondered if this is what Gyatso had meant.
If it is, then he thinks Gyatso was wrong.
Because Aang doesn't see the vulture-bee's death as a cruelty.
He sees it as justice.
