This is my first Avatar story, and hopefully not the last. These first few parts will be short, but it's all build-up. A word on the story. This is what I would like to call a character story. There is action, and a little bit of racism between the Na'vi and the Humans. But this story is mainly about Jake. Just give it a chance.
There are two things in life you never plan for: finding your true love and then losing her. But that's what happened to me. And it was only the beginning.
And I'm not one to dwell on the past, so we won't go into specifics. But we'd had ten amazing years. More amazing than anything an ex-Marine from a dying world could have hoped for. We'd found a new home, and we'd started new traditions of our own. Guess I should have know after Tommy that I was destined to lose everyone I loved. Nothing lasts forever. I'd been living a dream. The most incredible, amazing dream I'd ever had in my short, pitiful life. Sooner or later, though, you always have to wake up.
Move on to chapter two, please!
