OH MY GOD! AN UPDATE. I NEARLY FORGOT WHAT LOOKED LIKE. Kay no, I updated my other stories so that's not true. But it has been really long. I had serious writers block. I wrote one part then I couldn't think of what to write then I finished the chapter and realized there was hardly any Wang in it so that needed to be fixed. I'm ranting. Thanks to the reviewers/alerters/favoriters :D I guess it was kind of unexpected for whats her face to cheat on Tenzin but it was either that or I'd kill her off… (Yeah I'm a horrible person) But if I killed her off then I'd have to make Tenzin and the kids go through all this emotional stuff (Which I have to do for the kids anyway) and I just don't feel like doing that… (No okay I wouldn't have killed her) And now after episode 10 I actually kind of *dare I say it?* Like Pema. Though I'm still a die hard Linzin shipper. I might even bring Pema back into this story, who knows, maybe Tenzin will forgive her. Maybe not. Probably not.
Disclaimer: Nothing belongs to me.
Tenzin was ecstatic. They were kissing! Well, they already kissed like… a day ago but this time she kissed him! They continued kissing for quite awhile then when things started getting really heated, Lin, much to Tenzin's dismay, pulled away. They were both gasping for breathe again, and Lin stood up.
"We… We need to… get out… of here" She gasped. Tenzin stood as well and nodded.
Lin closed her eyes and pressed her hands against the platinum. She remembered all the things her mother always told her. She tried to feel the little pieces of earth in the platinum. While that was happening Tenzin was thinking. Were they a couple now? She did kiss him… and he was single now, and they had a son. Should he invite Lin and Wang to live on Air Temple island? Maybe he should ask her on a date… Yeah. Yeah that's what he'll do. He could take her flying on Oogi! Then again… she does prefer being on the ground. Maybe he could just take her out to dinner. Yeah. He could do that. Tenzin had been so busy with his thoughts he didn't notice that Lin punched a hole through the platinum.
"…I rule" She said, then she turned to him "Did you see that? I just bended platinum. I just invented platinum bending! Did you see that?" She said while laughing. Tenzin laughed too. This was the first time he'd seen her actually happy since they had ended it. She was actually genuinely happy.
"I saw, I saw! It was… well, for lack of a better word, awesome" She ran up to him and wrapped her arms around his neck, he lifted her up and twirled her around.
"We have to save Korra" She said "And we have to break her friends out of jail" Tenzin buried his head in her hair.
"The um… switch Tenzin. You have to turn in off" She told him. He put her down and looked at the switch. Some idiot left their pen right by the switch so it was pretty easy for Tenzin to bend the air around the pen to make it fly into the switch. The electricity was shut off, Lin made the hole in the cell bigger so that they could go through and they were free.
After a long long day Lin, Tenzin and all the teenagers including Korra rode on Oogi back to Air Temple island. Korra was in Mako's arms and Asami looked at them sadly. Lin sat next to Tenzin and began speaking quietly so that the others wouldn't hear.
"So… about that kiss… I um… sorry 'bout that. I was just…" Tenzin looked at her and smiled.
"I was wondering if you'd like to go on a date with me" He asked. Lin was puzzled.
"A date? You know what those are right?" He said while grinning.
"O-of course I know what those are"
"Well, I'd like to take you on one. I was thinking we could go out to dinner or something"
"I-I… sure. Let's… go on a date" Behind them, Korra smiled weakly.
Tenzin picked up his kids (Korra wanted Wang to come back to Air Temple island with them) then he dropped them all off on the island. Now? Now it was time for their date.
"Where are we going?" She asked as she laid her head on his shoulder.
"You know that small water tribe restaurant by Yue bay?" She nodded.
"Heard they had good food"
"They do, it's excellent" Lin was happy, she was so happy that she'd probably be happy for the rest of the week. She was back together with the one man she'd ever had any feelings for. She felt horrible for the children though, horrible for what their mother had done, she liked the children, even though Meelo was a bit… strange.
"We're here" Tenzin interrupted her thoughts. Lin smiled as Tenzin helped her off Oogi. They walked in the restaurant and sat down, the waitress asked them what they'd like to eat.
"Five flavor soup" They said simultaneously. Tenzin chuckled and Lin smiled. When they were younger Katara would always cook five flavor soup for them, it was one of their favorites. As they waited for the food to arrive they talked about many things, Korra, Wang, his children, they even talked about the relationship between Mako, Korra, Bolin and Asami. Lin felt that Bolin was better suited for Korra, while Tenzin knew that both Korra and Mako loved each other and he felt that Bolin and Asami would make an adorable couple.
"That's ridiculous! The avatar obviously belongs with the earth bender!"
"Uh, no. It's obvious that Korra and the one with the strange eyebrows belong together!"
"Have you ever seen your eyebrows Tenzin? They're not that normal either"
"What's wrong with my eyebrows?" Tenzin asked in a mock-hurt voice.
"Nothing!" Lin laughed. The waitress brought their soup and Lin started eating.
"Didn't you see how eager he was to find her? Because he loves her!" Tenzin said. Lin sighed.
"Fine, you're right. But you still have weird eyebrows"
"Hey!" Tenzin and Lin enjoyed their soup and the rest of the date, occasionally arguing about his eyebrows, but all in all, it was a fantastic date. They went back to Air Temple island and Tenzin expected them to well… continue in the bedroom, but Lin just smirked at him and walked to the room she would be staying in, much to Tenzin's dismay. Lin walked in her room and was surprised to see Wang sitting on her bed.
"What are you doing here Wang?" She asked, he glared at her.
"What are you doing?" Lin looked around in confusion.
"No, I mean what are you doing with Tenzin!"
"I-What? That is none of your business!"
"Of course it's my business! He broke up with you, broke your heart and left you to raise a child alone, and now you're just getting back together with him as though none of that happened?" He yelled.
"Wh-I-I…" Lin suddenly realized that Wang was right. He sighed.
"I know that you still love him. I know that you never stopped loving him mom, but… you can't do this to yourself. You can't hurt yourself again. I won't allow it"
"…For a teenage boy you sure are smart" Lin said quietly. Wang wrapped his arms around her.
"You're just gonna end up getting hurt again…" She looked to the ground.
"You're right. I'll go tell him… I'll to tell him it's over" She went to his room and knocked quietly on his door. Tenzin opened it and smirked when he saw her standing there.
"Couldn't resist the Tenzin huh Lin?" Lin sighed.
"That's not why I'm here. We need to talk"
Please tell me no one hates Wang right now. He's just looking out for Lin! Also, is it just me or was Lin freakishly ooc in this chapter? Well, if she came off that way, she's just really happy about making out with Tenzin and bending platinum. Just so we're clear, I'm not bashing Mako or anything …Tenzin is the president of the Makorra and Bosami fanclub.
Part of this chapter was written before episode 10. (OHMYGOD LIN) And, I just realized something. This whole date thing… happened the night before Lin gets her bending taken away D: I haven't decided yet if I'm going to take away Lin's bending in this story, but I don't think I will. Next chapter will (hopefully) be longer and updated soon!
