The door slammed open with a loud bang followed by a very unwanted wake-up call.


Pabu shrieked and puffed up, darting under Bolin's bed. The boys both groaned loudly and Bolin sat up, looking at the grinning Korra in the doorway. Mako made another sound and rolled over so he was facing the wall, his pillow now over his head. Korra pouted and crossed the room to the sleeping firebender.

Bolin watched for a moment, but as Korra moved her hand he jumped off the bed and ducked at the foot. A second later Korra had the sheets of Mako's bed in her hand. Making sure she had a good hold, she yanked them off, bringing Mako with them. She quickly jumped to the side as he sent a fire blast from his fist and abruptly sat upright, glaring at the girl to his right.


She grinned again and said, "We're going to the beach!"

Bolin got up and sat back on his bed with Pabu. "Why?" he asked.

"Because," Korra said, turning on her heel to face him, "I've never been to the beach, and I want to go!"

"Do you even have a suit?" Mako asked, tossing his sheets onto the bed. He'll fix it later.

Korra rolled her eyes, hand on her hip. "No, I'm going to go naked."

He gave her a look and she just raised a brow at him, eyes half closed.

"I'm going to get Asami up. We're going to leave in about an hour or so." With that, she turned and left with a lazy wave.

"Do we at least get to eat breakfast first?" Bolin asked Mako, who shrugged.

"Hey, Asami! You up?" Korra asked, knocking on the door.

"Come on in, Korra," came the response.

Korra opened the door and walked in, kicking it closed behind her. Asami was going through one of the drawers looking for a shirt.

"Got your shower already, then?" Korra asked, taking a seat on the bed.

"Yep. Boy's up?" she asked, turning around. "How about this one?"

Korra laughed and said, "Why are you asking me?"

Asami threw the shirt at her and they both laughed then.

"Yeah, they're up. I nearly got my hair singed by Mako though," Korra told her, throwing the shirt back. "But it was worth it."

"You're very mean," Asami stated with a smile.

"Yeah, well." The Avatar shrugged and jumped off the bed. "Now, get your shirt on. We're leaving after breakfast."

Korra had rushed through breakfast, finishing before everyone else. She had hurried out of the room leaving her dishes on the table.

"Someone's excited," Asami said.

Tenzin sighed. "Well, it is her first time, after all," he said.

"Hurry up! I want to leave," Korra called from somewhere in the house. Tenzin sighed again.

"Daddy, do we get to go too?" Ikki asked, bouncing a little.

"Sorry Ikki," Pema said as she walked into the room. "You, Jinora, and Meelo are going to stay here. We can go next time."

Ikki pouted and crossed her arms but didn't argue. Jinora remained indifferent and Meelo could care less.

"Hey, I said hurry up," Korra said and she ran by the room. "I'm going to get Naga ready, Tenzin!"

The brothers and Asami gave each other amused looks and finished eating.

"This is going to be an interesting day," Mako said as Korra ran by again.
