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.
