Hop y'all enjoy! :)
I paced outside the apartment. Bee had already gone inside but I had to think. It had been 9 months since the Avatar had defeated Fire Lord Ozai. We were still living in Ba Sing Se with a better apartment and promoted positions in our jobs. Life was actually going pretty good for us as of late. It was Bee's birthday tomorrow and I had no idea what to get her. Dresses and other frilly things most girls like was obviously out of the question. She already had daggers and katanas. I kept pacing. Maybe I'd think of something tomorrow at the bakery. Wait! That was it!
I could get all our friends together and get a cake! I grinned. This was gonna be great. I went back inside the apartment, already planning for the party. Bee looked at me, eyebrow raised. "What are you so rainbows and sunshine about?" She said, the ghost of a smile on her face. I grinned even bigger, if that was possible. (Oh nothing.) Bee eyed me with fake suspiciousness.
"I'll get it out of you sooner or later." she said with a smirk on her face. I smirked back. (Not likely.) Bee smiled. "Is that a challenge?" (Perhaps.) I said leaning against the wall. Bee grinned.
"Challenge accepted." she said mischeviously. And with that she disappeared round the corner. I looked around confused before I felt a sharp, tickling pain on either side. I whirled around to see Bee giggling. (Oh, so that's how you want to play it.) I said, smiling. I grabbed her and started tickling her. Bee shrieked and tried to get away, laughing all the while. I held her tighter letting a laugh escape my lips as well. Finally I stopped and Bee went limp in my arms gasping for breath, tears streaming down her cheeks from laughing so hard. "That was dirty." I shrugged. (Maybe.)
I let her out of my arms and she stood straight, sighing. She turned towards me smiling. "I'll get you for that." I grinned back at her. (We'll see.)
After a moment or two of just goofy smiling at each other, we went to bed. Bee crawled into my bunk after me into my waiting arms. I kissed the top of her head. (Ready to be 14?) Bee grinned. "Am I ever." She made a face after this. "In a few years I'll be of marrying age." This was followed by a shudder. I chuckled. Inside, I was dreading it too. I couldn't stand the thought of a bunch of guys after my Bee.
She had let her hair grow out and now it was well past her shoulders. It would be at her waist by the time summer got here. Bee had shed her war paint and heavy eyeliner. She kept the headband to cover the ugly burn scar. She no longer wore her armor and her smile was more frequent now, not something you almost had to scare out of her. Smellerbee was turning into a woman. She showed signs of losing her childness I guess one could call it. Her figure had become more curved and her face was losing any traces of baby fat, letting her high cheekbones become more prominent. She was, in a word, beautiful. "Hello, earth to Longshot?" Bee said now, waving a hand in front of my face. Must've spaced out. She grinned. "What were you thinking about that you had to ignore your best friend?" My heart sunk a bit in the way she said that.
I kept forgetting we were still just "best friends". Nothing had changed. I really wanted it to. Seeing my expression, Bee sobered. "Hey, what's wrong?" (It's nothing.) I waved her off. (Just tired.) Bee frowned. "Well alright.." BOOM! A huge bout of thunder sounded through the air. Bee yelped and wrapped herslef tightly around me. She was terrified of thunderstorms. She buried her face in my shoulder, her shivering body wrapped around mine. I stroked her hair until it was over and she slowly untangled herself fom me. She lifted her head up to say thanks but stopped when she saw how close our faces were. I looked at her lips and back at her eyes.
I leaned in hesitantly before Bee closed off the remaining space and our lips touched. It felt like an electric spark was running through my body. I poured everything I had kept inside of me in the last few months into that kiss. We broke away only for air. Bee blushed and stammered a little when we broke apart, making me chuckle. She blushed even harder when I did that. "So what does this mean, exactly?" she asked shyly. I thought a moment before deciding. ( It means I love you.) Bee smiled. "I guess it means I love you too." We smiled a little at each other before going to sleep. Needless to say, i had some pretty good dreams that night.
A/N: I know i's not much but it's very fluffy so perhaps that will satisfy y'all. If you guys want another one, please tell me. Well, until next time. :) ~Avatard101
