Feelings she deniedShe didnt know why she felt this way. She didnt know why the butterflies picked her as their home. She didnt know why he made her feel this way. But something, something deep down, was trying to tell her something, she just didnt know what it was or what it was saying. She couldnt tell you why her knees got weak around him. She couldnt even tell you why her heart fluttered like it did when he said her name, but it did.
Though she hid it well. Though shed never admit to the feelings bubbling up in her chest as she thought about him. Though she wouldnt tell anyone, not even Katara, she knew, she had fallen for him. Shed fallen for his sarcastic remarks, shed fallen for his stupid sense of humor, she had just fallen, head over heels for him.
In the end though, as they got ready to depart, to go their separate ways, she kept her feelings to herself. She said goodbye to him as if there was nothing wrong, she said goodbye like he di
An airbender's mark chap.6T-Transfer? Katara sobbed, what transfer? Whats that supposed to mean? she looked down at the boy she loved confused. I-I dont understand.
Its alright to be confused, just dont be afraid, Aang whispered, taking a deep breath, souls can tell if your afraid to let them intertwine. Katara blinked, lip quivering as she slowly understood what he was talking about.
Intertwine? Wait Her eyebrows knitted together in concentration, wait! When Iroh and them tried to get me to leave I felt a pain in my stomach, I got really scared and it stopped almost instantly. W-was th-that your s-spirit trying to twine w-with mine? she stuttered, realization dawning on her. Th-the only reason your still alive is because I was afraid to accept your spirit? Aang nodded slowly, fear showing in his eyes as he saw her eyes light up. Then theres still a way to sa-
An airbender's mark chap. 5Ignoring there protests she ran back toward the burned palace, hoping, with all her heart that what she had felt wasnt what she thought. Praying that it wasnt true.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Flash back Kataras POV~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I let Iroh guide me toward the palace gate, letting my thoughts wander, He couldnt be dead! Just couldnt! whats with this airmark thing any way?! I bit my lip in frustration, thats when I felt it, a burning in my stomach. Which slowly turned to pain, just a searing pain.
Shocked, I let out a scream, as I fell to the ground. I couldnt help it, it just hurt so bad! I knew where the pain came from, not from inside my stomach like a stomach ace, no, this came from on top of my stomach the pain came from the blue arrows around my waist, it was his spirit.
Katara! I heard Sokka yell, but it sounded distant, Katara, Katara whats wrong?! I looked up as Sokka kneeled down beside me. I blinked, forget
An Airbender's Mark chap.4Katara stood there for a few minutes, thinking about what Aang had just said, when Sokka ran in and yelled Katara! We have to get out! NOW! he grabbed her hand and started pulling her out the door.
S-Sokka? Wheres A-Aang? she asked, letting him pull her out the opened door way. After they were out he let go and turned around to run back outside yelling over his shoulder as he ran,
I dont know, we need to get out though! with that he disappeared into the smoke. Katara following closely behind, as soon as they got out side they heard a loud explosion. Scared, Katara looked around, seeing if she could find Aang, he was nowhere to be found.
As she was looking for him, Toph, Sokka, Iroh, Zuko, and Mai had come over to her Ty Lee following closely behind. Katara was so scared she barely noticed the fact that her brother and best friend were holding hands. Instead she just looked at Sokka and asked, voice trebling S-Sokka? Where-where

Katara! You need to get out of here! NOW! Aang yelled at the young water bender. She didnt move.
N-no, I wont l-leave y-you! Katara stammered between sobs. As she grabbed his hand. Please d-dont
Ill be f-fine, get your self out NOW! Aang yelled above the sound of the breaking palace walls, pulling his hand out of hers and trying to put on a brave face so she wouldnt see the pain in his eyes. For he knew he would never see the girl in front of him again. Never see the first real friend, but most of all never see the girl he loved ever again.
The day of black sun had come, as they tried to evacuate the building of allies, Aang tried his hardest to get Katara to leave but she wouldnt leave without Aang. Even after he told her to leave.
Aang! Im not leaving!

Toph, sweetie, Poppy Bei fong called sweetly for her daughter, who in return locked her bedroom door. come out of there, please. Your father and I need to speak with you.
Go away. came the earthbenders gruff reply. I dont want to talk to you, or dad, or ANYONE! Just leave me alone! she screamed from inside the room. Poppy sighed, Toph had been like that for the last 8 hours, ever since the water tribe boy had been asked to leave. Straitening up Mrs. Bei fong said, in her usual stiff manner,
Fine, but it was for the best, darling. That man was only trouble, trouble right from the start. with that she turned and started walking away, but not before she heard her daughter whisper, ever so softly,
No, he wasnt. He isnt. He isnt trouble, he was just being himself,
an airbenders mark chap. 2Recap: Katara, who had felt him tighten his grip, shifted closer to the young air bender, there faces now only inches apart, she could feel his breath on her face, as she whispered softly You.
Katara felt the blush redden more. As she stared at the young air bender beside her, waiting for a reply. Please feel the same, Please feel the same. She thought desperately. What she didnt notice though was that Aangs blush had deepened and his eyes had grown wider. Soon he realized she was waiting for him to reply.
Y-y-you l -l-love me? he stammered softly, YES!! he yelled in his head, his heart leaping in joy, but al soon as Katara spoke the joy quickly to pain.
Im sorry, I shouldnt have said anything. Katara whispered sadly tears starting to run down her cheeks as she got up to leave. I shouldnt have said a word! Now hell probably HATE me! You probably dont like me the way I love you, but I wo
