Hey Everybody, I just want to say that this is my first ever Fan Fiction, so please be nice. Constructive and nice comments only!
This Avatar Fiction takes place after the invasion, and is in the Western Air Temple. One-shot Kataang Fluff!
Three days since the invasion. Three days since my failure. But that isn't what's on my mind. It's been three days since I kissed Katara. Neither of us has said anything, and I'm not sure I want to be the one to speak up first. How does she do this to me? She makes me feel like I'm out of breath, and my legs are made of jello. Like I've never felt before. Why doesn't she bring up the kiss? Is it because she doesn't feel the same way? That must be it.
Aang silently contemplated this as he watched the sun rise from the balcony of the Western Air Temple. He was so deep in thought that he didn't hear the soft footsteps come up behind him. He jumped when he heard:
"Hey Aang, why are you up so early? Is everything alright? You have been acting kind of strange lately." As Aang met her eyes, her beautiful sea blue eyes, he saw real concern in them.
"Well… I uh… I've been thinking a lot lately about… well…" He was cut off as Katara said:
"About the kiss before the invasion?" By the time she finished the sentence, they were both blushing slightly.
"Umm, yeah that. Well… see I've just been wondering, you know, why you haven't said anything, and it really makes my nervous because I don't know if… well if you love me back or not, and I'm just so confused and don't know what to do and…" He never finished that sentence as Katara leaned in and kissed him softly on the lips. As she pulled away, she said:
"Aang, there hasn't been a chance to say anything to you yet. Plus, whether you realize it or not, you've been avoiding, not just me, but the whole group."
Aang was hardly comprehending anything she was saying, because her kissing him had shorted out his brain. When he finally was able to speak he said:
"Wow. I… umm. I wasn't expecting that. Can I take that to mean.. I mean, does this mean that you…"
"Yes Aang, it means I love you, too. When you kissed me at the invasion, it really caught me off guard. Since I've met you, I've only considered you as a little brother, but that kiss really opened my eyes as to how I really feel about you. After the Invasion, when you stared avoiding me, I felt hurt and assumed that… well you had just kissed me on impulse and not really meant it."
While she had been talking, Aang had managed to get most of his composure back. After she stopped, she turned her head away, looking embarrassed. Getting a sudden feeling of adrenaline and bravery, he tenderly cupped her chin with his hand and turned her head so she was looking him in the eye.
"I've always loved you Katara, and I always will."
And with that, they leaned in and kissed, softly at first, but then Aang put his hand in the small of her back, and Katara wrapped her arms around his neck, deepening the kiss. And as they stood there, wrapped up in the moment, with the rising sun as a backdrop, Aang was experiencing the feeling of true happiness.
