Serendipity: an aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident; good fortune or luck
Katara sat at her desk while everyone around her threw barbs at her for being Water Tribe. If only they knew that she was a waterbender, they'd be terrified. But, all bending was forbidden. Besides, the last time she was allowed to bend was when she was a 6 and her friend, Zuko, a firebender, still talked to her. Of course, she would still waterbend, in fact she found herself a master, who would teach her secretly.
Just as the taunting was coming to an end, another student walked into the classroom. He had a scar on the right side of his face and his hair, black as midnight, hung down into his golden eyes. His skin was very pale, as if he had never seen the sun. Something seemed familiar about him, but as far as Katara knew, she didn't know anyone who looked remotely like teenaged boy.
As she was mulling this over in her mind, the boy pulled out the chair to the desk next to her and plopped down into it as if he didn't wish to be there. The students who had just been taunting her began whispering to themselves about the new student. Katara, in an effort to help make the boy's time here at this school not completely miserable, reached her hand over as if to give him a handshake.

Katara cleared her throat awkwardly, "Anyway, what's your name?"
"My name is Zuko, why should it matter to you?" Katara's ears perked up at the sound of her childhood friend's name. It had to be a coincidence.
"I was just wondering, you seem familiar somehow. Anyway, a friend of mine a while back had the
Zuko felt like he was getting his hopes up, this girl had the same name and looked almost the same as his childhood friend. Was she the same? He took out the picture he kept of his last day with Katara and went to show it to her to find she was looking at the same picture.
After almost ten years, both teenagers had found someone they thought they'd never see again. And they planned to never let each other go.
This was the only idea I could come up with, not sure if it really goes with the prompt. I'm hoping it does. My first time doing Zutara week, so please critique, no flames! HAPPY ZUTARA WEEK!
