You would think that when you are flying high through the sky at night, it would be pretty silent. There might be the sound of the wind, a passing bird, but nothing more. Just the clouds and the moon and the stars.

Yeah, no. It's a freaking cacophony up there. At least, it is when you travel by war balloon. The wind is pretty much already deafening, but add to that the sound of raging fire and a constantly whining Sokka… Yeah, not silent at all.

Yet another sigh broke through the many sounds already filling the air around the balloon. "What is it Sokka?"

"Oh, nothing, nothing."

"Don't give me that. You've been doing nothing but sighing and sleeping for the past few hours!"

"It's just… nah, never mind."

"Sokka! This trip is bad enough without you constantly sighing!"

"Sorry, sorry. I'm just bored."

Zuko rubbed his temples, before once again increasing the fire that was keeping them afloat. He sat down next to Sokka and sighed himself. "No-one ever said this was going to be a fun trip, you know."

"I know, but I didn't expect it to be this long. I also didn't really expect to be here with someone else, but with absolutely nothing to do."

"We could, I dunno, talk?"

"We already did that. I don't think we have that much more to say to each other. I even told you about Yue."

"Yue?"

"You know, my first girlfriend?"

"Ah, the one that… turned into the moon, right?"

"Yeah."

"That still kinda freaks me out, you know."

Sokka sat up straight and scratched his crotch. "This trip wouldn't even be so bad if I had a bit of privacy…" Zuko immediately looked away and blushed a bit. "Yeah… Privacy…"

For a short while, Zuko thought this embarrassing episode was over and he was almost ready to relax again, when Sokka suddenly broke the non-silence again.

"Wait a second! Maybe we don't need any privacy!"

"Oh yes we do, trust me on this one!"

"No, no, hear me out! Back in my tribe, I once heard a couple of guys talk about the things warriors did when out on the sea, away from all the women."

"I don't like where this is going."

"Apparently it's very common for guys to… help each other out. It would get very frustrating otherwise, with neither women nor privacy."

"Please stop talking now."

"Come on, it can't be that bad. It might even be better than doing it alone."

"I don't know about the Water Tribes, but I'm pretty sure that's not done in the Fire Nation."

Zuko almost had a panic attack, but he was doing all he could not to curl up into the fœtal position and cover his ears. He had to at least give the appearance of being a noble, fearless warrior.

"Nah, I don't believe that. It's too win-win for it not to happen. It's a brilliant solution to a highly frustrating problem."

"Why did we start this conversation again?"

"Well, if you really don't wanna try, I won't force you. Still, since we are both guys, I'm sure you won't mind if I relieve myself here."

"I won't?"

"Nah, we both have the same equipment, after all, and I'm sure you've done this as often as I have."

"I have?"

"Of course! Now, if you don't wanna look, I suggest you turn around."

With those words, Sokka lifted his shirt and started to untie his trousers. Zuko desperately tried to find himself a way out of this beyond-awkward situation, but to no avail. Then he saw the single most impressive penis he had ever seen in his life.

Granted, he hadn't seen that many, but Sokka was definitely bigger than himself, or even his uncle. Then Zuko remembered that Sokka was actually younger than him.

"Dammit!"

"Something wrong Zuko?"

"Ah! No! Nothing's wrong!"

"Then why'd you say 'dammit'?"

"Ah, well, I…"

"Ye~s?"

Zuko looked away in embarrassment. He knew he wasn't getting off easily. "You're… huge."

"I am?" Sokka looked at his own member and sized it up. "I always figured I was average… Then again, I never had any guys my age to compare with. I know I'm bigger than Aang, but he's a lot younger than me. Still, you'd think the Avatar would be bi—"

"Shut up!" Zuko yelled out in embarrassment. "It's already bad enough knowing I'm smaller than someone younger than me! Please don't make it worse by telling me about the Avatar's dick!"

Sokka laughed, making Zuko twitch with annoyance. "Come on, you can't be that small."

"I'm smaller than you…"

"How can you say that when we haven't even compared them?"

"What?"

"Come on, take it out."

Zuko stared at Sokka for a moment in pure amazement. "Ehm… no?"

Sokka sighed and quickly grabbed Zuko's trousers, trying to pull them down. "Hey! Stop that!"

"Come on! You made me curious now!"

"I'm not showing you my—"

While he was taking a step away from Sokka, Zuko stepped on Sokka's sword and tripped, giving the other boy easy access to his trousers. Before he realised what happened, Zuko had lost both his trousers and loincloth to Sokka, leaving him with only his shirt and shoes on.

"There, was that so bad?"

"This could get you jail time in my country, you now…"

"Psh, who cares. Now get it hard and let's compare."

Zuko sighed deeply, but feeling utterly defeated, he finally gave in to Sokka's wishes. It was far easier than he had expected, much to his chagrin. Within half a minute, the boys were sitting on their knees, opposite of each other, both very hard and curious.

"See, I told you you were bigger."

"I guess you were right, cool. It isn't that much of a difference, though."

"Still…"

"What's up with your pubes, any way?"

"Wha?"

Zuko's pubes were trimmed and shaved into a crude flame shape. It was obvious he hadn't maintained it in a while, though.

"Oh that, I haven't really had the time to fix it up."

"Why… did you shave it in the first place? Why flames?"

"Ehm… Tradition, I guess… I was taught that a royal prince should have a perfectly kept body, so when I had enough hair down there, I was taught how to trim and shape it. I never was much good in it, though."

"Fire Nation customs are weird…"

"Shut it. Why do you have so much, any way?"

"I dunno, I don't think I have any more or less than other men from my tribe."

"It looks messy…"

"Compared to yours, I guess. You know, now that I think about it, I kinda like your pubes. You have to teach me how to do that one day."

"Eh? Are you serious?"

"Completely! I'm sure girls would go wild over that sort of thing."

"So ehm, what do we do now?"

"I don't know about you, but I'm horny as hell. I'm gonna jerk off."

"I guess it won't hurt if I join you now…"

Sokka grinned. "That's the spirit." Without any warning, he suddenly grabbed Zuko's dick. "I always wondered what another guy's dick would feel like."

Zuko gasped in shock, but came to his senses before he pulled away. They had gone way too far for him to be that surprised about this. He didn't really mind it, either. "Does it… feel any different than yours?"

"Why don't you find out for yourself?"

Hesitantly, Zuko reached for Sokka's dick and gently wrapped his hand around it. "It's… almost cold…"

"Nah, I think yours is just hot. I'm guessing it's a firebending thing."

"That makes sense, I guess."

Without thinking about it, Zuko slowly started to move his hand up and down, eliciting a soft moan from Sokka. Hearing that, Zuko wanted to stop, but Sokka prevented that.

"That feels good. Far better than when I do it myself."

"Really?"

"Yeah, go on!"

This time, Zuko did his best to make Sokka feel as good as he could, although his concentration was disturbed by Sokka jerking him off as well. The feeling of having someone else touch their dicks was amazing and it didn't take long for them to be leaning against each other, completely enthralled by the jerking.

Sokka was the first to climax, much to Zuko's amazement. "Man, that was awesome! You're quite skilled, you perv." Sokka said with a wink. He pushed Zuko over, making him sit on the floor, and continued jerking him off. Now that Zuko could completely focus on his own pleasure, it didn't take long for him to be completely engrossed in it. Soon, he started moving his hips to the rhythm of Sokka's hand, moaning uncharacteristically loud.

"S-Sokka! Almost…!"

Sokka just went on with jerking. By now he had gone even further and was also massaging Zuko's balls and rubbing the tip of his dick with his thumb. Zuko moaned loudly as he had the most powerful orgasm he had ever had, shooting not only all over Sokka's hand, but even hitting his cheek.

"Wow… amazing…"

"Ah, sorry 'bout that Sokka…"

"About what? This?" Sokka asked as he showed his cum-covered hand. "Why would you be sorry about that? I did the same to you, right?"

Zuko looked at his own hand, seeing Sokka's cum all over it. "I guess we should clean up."

"Good idea," Sokka grinned, before taking a lick of Zuko's cum.

"What the…!"

"Not bad, actually. Almost sweet, even… Have you been eating pineapple or something?"

"I… What? I mean…"

"Next time we should try sucking each other. I never had a blowjob before."

"What? N-next time?"

"Yeah! This was awesome! Or don't you want to?"

"I…" Zuko thought for a minute, only now realising how much he had enjoyed this. For the first time in a long while, he gave a sincerely happy smile. "Next time it is!"
