Ah-ha! I updated once, and didn't disappear for a month or two immidiately after!

Toph turned over in her bed for the millionth time. Next to her, Aang's eye had begun to twitch.

"Considering going to sleep any time soon?" he whispered.

She rolled over again so that her back was turned towards him, and murmured, "Night…"

"Goodnight." He replied, a bit less gently. He allowed his heavy eyelids to fall shut

A few seconds later, he felt her spin towards him again.

"Twinkletoes?" she whispered. He pretended not to hear her.

"Twinkletoes?" she whispered again, this time more forcefully.

He wondered how much longer he'd be able to get away with ignoring her.

A hard punch on the arm told him his time was already up.

He groaned and rolled over to face her. As he opened his eyes, he was startled to find her face about an inch away from his. He gasped and jerked back a little, then glared at her.

"What?" he hissed.

"Are you happy?" she asked timidly.

He blinked.


"I said are you happy?"

"About what?"

"You know…life. With me…"

He stared at her for a moment, glanced at the clock, and then looked back.

"Why are you asking me this at one in the morning after two years of happy marriage?"

She rolled over to face the ceiling.

"…I wanted to be sure…"

"Sure about what?"

She turned away from him and muttered something indistinguishable.


She turned back towards him.

"So you are happy?"

Aang wasn't sure what to say.

"What's wrong with you?"

She turned over restlessly a few times before facing him again. She reached out a hand and felt his face for a moment.

Then she leaned forward to whisper into his ear.

"I'm pregnant."

He felt his mouth drop open as she rolled over again.

"Goodnight, Aang."

Wonder who's going to be having trouble sleeping now...
