Her last Thoughts

This is Lins Thoughts on the ride to the air temple. And what flashed through her mind when Amon took away her bending. ONE-SHOT

"What ever happens to me, don't turn back."

"LIN, what are you doing?"

She heard his voice but didn't stop. Grabbing the end of the broken net she swung onto the ship and made quick work of the 1st airship, then moved onto the next one. She didn't get far. Something wrapped around her body and pain surged through her. Lin's world turned black.

"Mommy! Mommy! look what I can do!" A 4 year old Lin boasted to her mother. Toph let out a chuckle at her daughter's words.

" I'm looking Kiddo." Lin mimicked the moves her mother had showed her mulitpul times. A large rock flaoted into the air.

Toph's sightless eyes widened in pleasure and shock. She could barely contain her joy at her daughter's work.

"Way to go Kiddo. I knew you could do it!" Lin smiled at her mother's words.

"Now I can be just like you." Lin paused for a moment but continued,"I was worried you wouldn't love me as much if i wasn't a bender like you." Toph instanly felt bad. She knelt to her daughters height." Look at me Lin." Toph took Lin's chin into her hand and forced her to look at her.

"No matter what your are, wether you are a earthbender, firebender, waterbender, or even an airbender. You are my child, and I will always love you." Lin's eyes were filled with hope. Toph felt her energy rise and smiled," Lin even if you were a non-bender I'll always be there for you."

"Always?" The 4 year old asked.

"Always." Toph confirmed.

"I love you Mommy."

"I love you too Kiddo."

Lin stared into Amon's mask.

"Tell me were the Avatar is and I'll let you keep your bending."

"I'll never tell you anything, you monster!"

"Very well."

Lin closed her eyes and images flashed through her mind.

Lin holding a newborn child well Tenzin looked on with pride in his eyes.

Ikki hopping up and down Lin looking at her with bright green eyes, "Can I have some candy Mommy? Please, Please, Please!"

Lin watching Tenzin training Jinora, Ikki, and Meelo.

Tenzin pulling Lin into a passtionate kiss.

Lin laughing while Meelo chewed on Tenzin's head and pulled on his beard.

She felt incomplete. A part of her soul had been ripped out of her. She fell to the ground with a thud. Nothing could ever be right again. To her she had lost everthing that made her, well her. She didn't know how much time had passed before she felt strong hands lift her up.

"Oh Lin. I'm so sorry. i shouldn't have let you go."

Lin turned to face the voice. His face was blurry but years of looking at let her know who it was.

" You couldn't have stopped me Tenzin."

" I know. We'll tlak about this later. rest Lin." She was lowered onto something soft. A single tear escaped her eyes as she stopped struggling againist sleep. Before she fell a sleep she heard a filmilar voice.

" I'll always be there for you. I love you kiddo."
