Katara P.O.V

It was the first day of my sophomore year at Ozai High and I was running late! Sokka, my 17 year old brother, was "sick" so he couldn't give me a ride. So I had to run all the way to my best friend Toph's house. Toph is 14 and is starting her freshman year. She's also an earthbender, and a pretty good one at that. She's blind, but she senses the vibrations in the ground to get around. But we try to keep our bending abilities on the DL. Anyways, my name is Katara, I am 16 years old and I can waterbend. This is the story of love, hatred, and the evil forces of homework. This is the story of my sophomore year.

I arrived at Toph's place just in time because they were about to leave.

"Wait! Toph, can I get a ride?" I yelled as I ran up to her dad's car.

"Sure, hop in." Toph replied. I got in her dad's car and we headed to school.

We got there just before the bell rang and we had to run inside. We went upstairs to get our schedules and books. Then we had to run all the way downstairs to get to our lockers. Toph had already gone ahead but my books were slowing me down. That's when I accidentally ran into Zuko as I was rushing down the stairs. Zuko is the son of the principal, Principal Ozai. Zuko is a selfish spoiled rotten brat that hits on all the girls.

"Hey Katara." Said Zuko trying to play cool. "Wanna go out sometime? What about we see a movie Tuesday?"

That jerk! How dare he think he can get me with one smooth line?!?!

"HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU!?!? I'D NEVER GO OUT WITH A SELF-CENTERED JERK LIKE YOU!" I yelled as I backed up toward the stairs going downward.

"You wench!" He yelled as he slapped me across the face, hard. That's when I lost my balance and fell down the stairs, I felt my wrist bend funny and my ankle twist a way I never knew it could before. It hurt really, REALLY bad.

I heard someone come downstairs toward Zuko. I heard the person yell. "Hasn't your mother ever taught you to never hit girls?" It was a boy, I could tell by his voice. Then I heard the sound of a fist hitting a face and I heard Zuko scream like a girl and fall. Unfortunately it wasn't down the stairs. My vision was fuzzy and I could only see blurs and dots and stars. Then I saw a small figure coming toward me. It must have been that boy I heard earlier. I saw the figure kneel down next to me and ask me a question.

"Are you okay?" he asked, his voice full of concern.

My vision started to clear and I could see what he looked like. He had beautiful stormy grey eyes. He was wearing a blue shirt and a black jacket that was a little too big for him because it went past his wrists and almost to his fingers. He had regular jeans and sneakers, and a blue baseball hat on his head that almost covered his eyebrows.

He asked me again if I was okay. "I'm fine, thanks" I said. As I sat up the boy offered me his hand and helped me up. When I got up my ankle gave and I fell forward. The boy quickly reached his hands out and caught me though. "Why don't we get you to the nurse?" he said.

He put his arm around my waist as I put my arm around his shoulder, and I noticed he was a little taller than me. We started to head to the nurses office. "Great! First day of school and I'm already hurt!" I said sarcastically. He laughed and asked me "What's your name?"

"Oh, it's um..Katara." I said as I looked into his pretty grey eyes.

"That's a beautiful name" he commented as he blushed

"Oh, thanks" I said. I could feel the heat rising to my face.

We arrived at the nurse's office and I was sore all over. We sat down and waited for the nurse. She came in and introduced herself. "Hello there, I am Yugoda. My, my what happened to you?" she asked me. Before I could answer the boy next to me told her. "This jerk slapped her and she ended up losing her balance and falling down the stairs." He said in a small angered tone. He is so sweet!

"Well let's take a look here and see what we are dealing with." Yugoda said concerned. After a couple of tests she told me that I had broken my wrist and twisted my ankle. "You're going to have to go to the hospital, young lady." She said firmly. "Who did this?"

"Zuko" I replied. She frowned.

"Oh, Principal Ozai will here about this." She said

I turned to the boy that helped me and realized that I didn't know his name. "I'm sorry, I didn't catch your name, what is it?" I asked

"Aang" he said in a sweet tone.

"I like that name!" I said blushing

"Thanks." He said, his face reddening.

"So, um.. Aang, um will you please come with me?" I asked just a little embarrassed

He nodded and replied "Sure, I'd love to."

I turned back around to Yugoda. "Is it okay if he comes with me?" I asked.

"Of course… it would be wise to have a friend accompany you." Yugoda replied warmly.

"The ambulance should be here any minute. Why don't you go ahead and wait outside for this to be easier. I'll tell Principal Ozai what happened." Yugoda explained.

Aang helped me up and walked me outside. The ambulance came soon and we headed for the hospital. When we got there I was talking to Aang. I was nervous and shaking, I could tell by Aang's look he noticed it too.

"What's wrong? Nervous?" He asked concerned. I could only nod. He laughed slightly.

"I understand the feeling, I've been to the hospital before." He said sadly.

"Do you mind if I ask what happened?" I asked. That was when a doctor came up to us and said. "I'm sorry sir but visiting hours are over." Aang just nodded and looked at me and said. "Don't worry, it'll be okay." And just like that, he was gone.

I stayed at the hospital overnight. In the middle of the night I received a call on my cell, it was Sokka. "WHERE ARE YOU!?!?!?!?!?!" Was what I heard when I answered the phone. "Well, let's see, I'm at the hospital because apparently my big brother wasn't there to protect me." I said in a sarcastic baby voice. "WHAT! For what?" He asked. "That jerk Zuko made me fall down the stairs." I explained.

"How did he do that?" He asked. I hesitated knowing how overly protective he is.

"He slapped me, and I fell." Sokka gasped. "WHY THAT LITTLE…I'll get him for this!" I sighed. "Whatever Sokka, let me get to sleep!" Sokka sighed. "Ok, good night Katara, be safe." I sighed, of course. "Whatever." I said as I hung up.

The next day after school hours, Aang came back. "Hey Katara, how are you? Did you make it through the night?" He asked. I laughed. "Yeah, I guess it was ok." He smiled. "Good, I got you something." He held out a bouquet of red and blue flowers. I gasped. "Aang, they're beautiful!" I said excitedly as I took the flowers. "I thought they'd cheer you up." He blushed. "By the way, I never really got to thank you for helping me, so…thanks." I said smiling. He smiled a cute grin that came from ear to ear. "Well, I got to go, I have loads of homework to do, you'd think they'd go easy on you on the first week of school!" I laughed. "Yeah, I guess I'll see you later." He nodded and left.

Minutes later Toph came in. "Hey there sweetness, have a nice trip?" she asked

"Ha ha, very funny!" I said not amused

"How'd you find out I was here?" I asked

"Words spread fast, that and Sokka and Zuko got into a fight today!" she said

"WHAT?!?!?!" I screamed

"Yeah, it was pretty amusing too. They were both fighting like little girls until a teacher came and broke it up." Toph said with a smirk on her face.

"So, how did you get to the nurse without hurting yourself?" she asked

"I had some help" I said

"Who was he?" she asked "How did you know it was a guy?" I asked. "I didn't but now I do" she said

"His name is Aang" I said blushing as his name rolled off my tongue.

"Oh you mean that weird kid everyone has been talking about?" Toph asked.

"HE'S NOT WEIRD…" I shouted a little too defensive. "…he's just……mysterious."

WOW! That took forever to write. We hoped you liked it! R&R plz.
