Memories Are ForeverMy entry for the "Infinite...Contest" by #SimplyZutara
prompt word: "pineapple"
Katara stirred a pot of stew with her bending. That was what it was for, stirring food, doing laundry, cleaning their home. Her home, the southern Airtemple, where she lived with Aang for five years already.
Two years after the war ended, they moved in here, together with some air normands which appeared as soon as the message of the end of the war reached them. Together, they started rebuilding their temple and gathering lost air normands all over the world.
Katara was glad to be near her real home, the southern Watertribe, which she visited quite often. Aang had to travel a lot due to his duties as the Avatar, but Katara was left behind most of the time.
Sometimes Aang would give her something stupid to do or give her a ride to the southern Watertribe, but this wasn't how Katara imagined her future, she wanted to help creating a new world with her friends, change people's mind, got to know lots of

Katara turned around and walked straight out of Zukos room. As she passed him and just walked through the door frame Zuko grabbed her arm and said "Katara, wait!"
His touch made chills running down her spine. She wasn't prepared for an answer!
She turned around anyway and her eyes met Zukos pleading gaze.
"Katara, please, will you listen for a second?"
She nodded. He closed the door.
"Katara, I understand that you can't trust me easily. But I hope you will give me a second chance. I wont betray the Avatar and I never did.
Worse, I betrayed you when you were the first person to trust me, to give me the feeling I'm not entirely alone in this world."
"Grmph... guess your Girlfriend would love to hear that.." Katara muttered looking an the floor.
Zukos looked like he got slapped across the face but pulled himself together again.
"I got scared so I teamed up with Azula when she appeared. It was a horrible mistake which I realized soon after I started living my new life. The life I thought I
[Zutara] Betrayal of the Heart* PART 5Katara took a deep breath and knocked bravely on Zukos door. He opened the door and he looked really surprised before he managed to compose his face again.
"Katara" he said and let her in.
Before he could say something else, Katara stared to speak calmly but decisive "I came to tell you I don't trust you because you don't deserve it. We both know how quick you can change your mind."
She knew she was being unfair.
"But since Aang needs someone to teach him fire bending, I will accept that you stay with us. But! If I notice the slightest doubt, if I notice you try to betray Aang again, I swear you will never have to worry about your destiny again."
She felt relieved. She managed to say everything, she said it as if it was only for Aang and had nothing to do with her feelings.
Katara turned around and walked straight out of Zukos room.
[Zutara] Betrayal of the Heart* PART 4
The kiss before they invaded the fire nation.
She had entirely forgotten about it.
Her first kiss.
With her best friend, who was also like a little brother to her.
The feeling in her stomach grew worse.
Is this what people are talking about when they say you get 'butterflies in your belly'? She had always imagined it totally different, more like happiness and joy instead of guilt and sickness.
Was it wrong to kiss him? Does he have a crush on me? Am I having a crush on him? Am I raising his hopes for something more than friendship?
So many questions and no answers.
Everyone was tugging into their dinner greedily since Katara entirely forgot to fix lunch for them. The mood was lightly and happy and Katara let herself get swept with the mood, trying to forget her worries.
She noticed Zuko looking at her sometimes during the meal in what looked like agony. She got annoyed and gave him a dirty look so he would look away.
If she only knew Zuko could feel her pain himself because
[Zutara] Betrayal of the Heart* PART 3So there she stood, in the middle of the room, her hands gripping the necklace tightly, realizing she was able to cry and let out her feelings in front of Zuko, technically a stranger who had been an enemy since they first met.
She stood perfectly still for someone whose thoughts whirled around in her head like a tornado.
What am I going to do? Just what am I going to do.
The sound of someone knocking the door brought her back to reality. Startled she stared at the door for a second when a calm but worried voice carefully asked "Katara? Can I come in?"
It was Aangs voice.
Katara quickly hid the vial and let him in.
"I am worried about you. Ever since Zuko joined us this morning I haven't seen you outside. Why are you hiding in your room all day?"
Katara thought it through for a second.
She had to make a decision.
"I was feeling a little exhausted so I took a nap, nothing to worry about." she smiled.
"And you're really okay with Zuko staying here?"
She flinched inwardly at the ri
[Zutara] Betrayal of the Heart* PART 2
As long as she could remember she wasn't really understood by anyone.
She had a special bond with her mother nobody else understood. When she died, the last person to understand her was gone.
She didn't have friends her age, even though everyone was really nice at the southern water tribe.
She was the only water bender, nobody could understand her desire to feel connected with other benders.
After she found Aang in the ice she felt the need to help ending the war and travelling with the Avatar, something nobody else she knew would have done.
When she met Jet she got attracted by the thought of him understanding and sharing her pain but in the end, her trust was used to do something terrible she would have never approved.
As Toph joined their group she was hoping for a friend who understands her but got disappointed again as she saw that Toph was the little pampered girl which she has been all her live. Her parents didn't understand her as well but her problems were on a completely diff
[Zutara] Betrayal of the Heart* PART 1
Katara was barely aware that she just walked into her room and sat on the bed, her head spinning and her mind in a war-like state, all her thoughts screaming in her head.
How could everyone trust Zuko so quick? She asked herself over and over again.
They can't possibly have forgotten how he chased us around the world, making our life hell. How could they believe he suddenly changed his mind?
As Katara was still thinking about it, she wandered around her room to calm herself down when she suddenly noticed the vial for spirit water Pakku gave her on a small desk. She couldn't remember how it got there but she was all furious again remembering how she offered to heal Zukos scar and how she had to use it to save Aangs life because of Zukos betrayal. She felt like her feelings could burn her body down. She touched the necklace and suddenly the burning faded and she calmed down.
Is this what firebending feels like? The question suddenly popped into her mind.
She came to
[Zutara]Breaking through the Surface* Part 6
Her lips were moving against the fabric, unable to stop to take breath.
After what felt like a second or maybe eternity, he pulled away to take a breath.
Zuko feared he might have gone too far while reasoning that their masks in between their lips made it less dishonourable, but Katara just shoved him back, his back leaning onto Appa, to climb on his lap, kiss him more and then remove the masks in between.
Kissing her lips was much more intense than he could have imagined. Her soft, full lips sent waves of pleasure through his entire body.
The kissing and gasping went on, their bodies burning with desire moving against each other. Her hands in his hair, on his back, clawing into his shirt, his hands all over her body, holding her hips to pull her even closer.
Suddenly Katara pulled away from him, gasping and her face all read.
Zuko was worried again "What is it Katara?"
She took a deep breath before looking away and whispering "I can feel somet
[Zutara]Breaking through the Surface* Part 5
Zuko wrapped his arms around her and buried his face near her wild, delicious smelling hair, resting his head on her shoulder.
He felt his insides clenching like never they never had before, not with anger but with happiness.
He could feel his whole body burning with desire.
He never knew a hug could feel like this. A firework in his heart, a festival in his head.
Katara loosened her arms around him, but he just held her tighter.
"Just a little more." he whispered softly.
He felt something wet on his shoulder.
Quickly he released her from his arms to hold her shoulders and look at her face.
Tears were running down Kataras beautiful brown cheeks.
"Katara what's wrong? Did I hurt you?" Zuko asked confused and worried.
She sniffed "No you Jerk"
Did she just smile a little behind that fabric covering her face?
"You are confusing me, I don't know what to feel any more." she said.
Zuko wiped off her tears with his thumbs, cupping her face with his hands.
"Don't cry, silly." he smiled at her
[Zutara]Breaking through the Surface* Part 4
Time passed and they flew through the dark, starry night. Zuko was looking at the moon, silently asking what in the world he should do.
In this moment Katara moved slightly and mumbled in her sleep.
He held her a little closer and inhaled the delicious scent of her hair. She stopped mumbling only to start again a minute later.
Zuko tried not to listen but after he was sure he heard his name three times in a row, he couldn't possibly ignore it any more. He leaned his head closer and heard her mumbling "Zuko... Zuko I forgive you... Zuko please stay with me... I need you Zuko..."
Staring at her in disbelieve, he thought There's no way she could have said all these things I wanted her to say so badly. It was impossible.
He had to know.
He whispered her name a few times so she would wake up. He tightened his arm around her and shifted a little. She opened her eyes slowly. Suddenly she sat up straight, her eyes wide open, starring at Zukos arm around her and then at Zuko.
StardustYour body is made of stardust.
How cool is that? Just
Think about it. Stardust.
Your body is a universe
With your heart as its sun,
And it has been pumping
To keep you alive
Since you begun –
A whole sun
Wants you here.
Your lungs are two galaxies;
Each an inhaling and exhaling
And they work their hardest
To keep you okay –
Two entire galaxies
Want you to stay.
Your blood cells are meteors,
Going as fast they can
To keep you safe and sound –
Millions of magnificent meteors
Want you around.
Our souls are night skies
And our flaws
Are constellations that
Make us who we are –
Making us each as unique
As each and every star.
Please, don’t become a supernova tonight.

on the kissing curse
