this story is based on a fan made Zutara trailer I found on . The creator of the trailer was awesome enough to grant me permission to make a fanfic of it as long as I gave them credit :) there's going to be lines from Disney movies. That's because in the fanmade trailer, the creator used them. Enjoy!

disclaimer - I don't own ATLA

The young children of the Southern Water tribe gathered around an old woman, Hama, inside her house. She had a fire burning in her fireplace to give her and the children light in the dark room. She sat down in a comfy cushioned chair while the children sat or laid on the floor in front of her. They looked at the old storyteller eagerly, waiting for her to begin telling one of her stories she told them night and day. She had promised them the night before that she would tell them an important story. A true one that happened eight years ago. It was a story of love, anger, and war.

"Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But a young woman came into his life when he wished to expand his nation. The girl melted his cold heart, something no one thought could happen."

Hama smiled when she saw that she had the children's undivided attention. They looked at her, if even possible, more eagerly than before and with awe. Her eyes fell on a young girl no older than seven. She was looking at Hama expectantly, mentally begging her to continue the story.

"That, children, is where our story begins."

I'm sorry that this chapter was so short, but I promise you the next one will be longer!

the fanmade trailer was created by 1Christal2. I'd put in the link but for some reason the edit/preview thing won't keep the link in. to find the video, go to youtube and look up The Love of an Enemy. It will be the only one with clips from ATLA
