AN: I just couldn't help myself after seeing the newest Avatar short...


"My heart burns for you."

"Stop it, Zuko." Katara's tone was slightly playful; she couldn't help it. "I can't believe you think a sappy line like that would work." A mischievous smile appeared on his lips. Suddenly he was close and they were breathing the same air. He closed his eyes and pressed his forehead to hers. The smile remained on his lips.

"You mean you can't feel it?" Katara gulped. His skin was hot… Zuko opened his eyes. His gold irises smoldered, the little smile dangerously acquiring an entirely self-satisfied air.

"Zuko…" Her voice had dropped to a whisper, all playfulness gone.

"It burns, Katara, burns."
