All my life I've kept my heart hidden. It's how I was raised, and being Azula's friend made it all the more imperative that I learn to hide my feelings.
Everyone fears Azula.
But instead of hiding my feelings, I began to simply hate everything and everyone. The world was a dull, sad place. The only one who ever managed to warm my heart was Azula's older brother, Prince Zuko. He gave me a reason to live.
I've recently realized something: I love Zuko more than I fear Azula. I would do anything for Zuko—no matter what the cost.
