I'm trying to write another Kataang one shot, hopefully better than the last. I got the idea from watching the Fortune Teller (one of my favorite episodes)..Hope you enjoy, and remember to review.
"Sokka, please put your sleeping bag away. You've been sleeping all day!" An exasperated waterbender said with hands on her hips. Sokka, laying in his sleeping bag, opened one eye.
"Why should I?" He asked sleepily and rolled on his side to get a better view of Aang and Toph, who were making slashing signs at their throats, with wide eyes. "Um, funny motions guys…" He slurred his speech with exhaustion, and looked up at Katara. Katara whirled around to face Aang and Toph, who were playing "Patty Cake". Katara rolled her eyes.
"You should because you need to pull your weight today. You've been slacking off all week. Don't think I don't know about Aang brushing Appa, when this week was your duty." She glared down at Sokka, who shrugged.
"He offered, and anyways-" He got out of his sleeping bag, and stood to face Katara. "You're not our mom. You can't order me around!" Katara put her hand to her water bending pouch, then thought better of it.
"You're right, Sokka, I'm not mom." She said sweetly. She strode over to a stump and sat down on it.
"Yeah! You just sit there!" Sokka pointed at Katara. "Good thing we don't havbe to listen to you anymore!" He smiled, and picked up his boomerang. "I'm going to go hunt." Then he walked quickly towards the nearest forest, which was pretty far away, because the Fire Nation had over-harvested the area.
Tension rose at camp when Sokka left. "Uh, I think I'll go with Sokka." Aang offered, and picked up his glider. 'Maybe I can talk to Sokka about Katara…" Aang thought and felt a pit in his stomach. 'What if he says no? And practically kills me?' He sighed, and flew off on the glider.
It wasn't long until he found Sokka. He was throwing his boomerang at random trees, while he strutted along the path. Aang landed gently next to him. "Hey, Sokka."
Sokka jumped a foot in the air in shock. "What the?! Oh, it's just you Aang, I thought it was Fire Nation or something." He sighed with relief. "You look like you have something on your mind, why don't you tell old Sokka?"
Aang flushed a deep red. He mumbled incoherently and Sokka raised an eyebrow. "It's about Toph, isn't it?" The warrior asked, smiling. Aang looked up with wide eyes.
"Uh…" The color drained from his cheeks, until they became a ghostly white.
"Hey, you look a little sick there, buddy." Sokka clapped Aang on the shoulder, who shook his head.
"I'm fine, I think. And no, it's not about Toph." He looked up at a confused Sokka.
"Oh, no. Don't tell me it's about-"
"Katara." Aang stated simply, and tried to look Sokka in the eyes. Sokka, however fixed Aang with a fierce glare. "Sokka, just hear me out. Please." Sokka sighed, and ran a hand through his hair, which oddly wasn't up in its ponytail.
"Sure, what have I got to lose?" He looked down at Aang, who had relief written all over his face. "What do you have on your-"
"Face? It was a trick played by Katara and Toph, so someone could use that phrase. Hold on, let me wash it off." He bent down and washed the words off his face, using a small collection of water in a stump. "Ok, I'm better now. So, I thought you knew that I liked Katara." Sokka coughed. "Apparently not. Anyways, I don't just like her, I-" He flushed a deep scarlet. "I love her." There was a moment of silence, then Sokka burst out laughing.
"Ok, what did you want to say?" He said as he tried not to laugh.
"Sokka, I was being serious." Aang said as Sokka looked startled.
"R-really?" He asked. Aang nodded, and Sokka sighed. "Well if you're looking for advice, you've come to the right place…" Aang and Sokka were still in a lively discussion when they arrived back at camp.
"So what are you talking about?" Toph asked innocently.
"Eh, nothing." Aang and Sokka said in unison.
"Well, what are we having for dinner?" Katara asked, while laying down on the ground, brushing Momo.
"Watch this." Sokka whispered into Aang's ear and walked over to Katara. "Sis, I'm sorry for the horrible jerk I've been. I know you're not mom, but I need you to act like you do, it keeps the Gaang together." Katara eyed him suspiciously, then got up and began to make a soup using the squirrel-bat that Sokka had brought back. "Your training starts tomorrow." Sokka said to Aang seriously, but Aang smiled back. Sokka shook his head. 'Tomorrow's gonna be a long day.'
