High School Sweethearts Chp. 38Chapter 38
White. All the person saw was white, brighter than anything they had ever seen, and strangely warm like a comforting hug. Where were they? Was this Heaven, the place where stories are told about? A magical place where good people go after fulfilling their lives, becoming immortal angels to watch over the mortals go about their daily lives? Then where was that strange beeping coming from? The person didn't know, but they didn't care. For once they felt at peace, like nothing could touch them, let alone harm them.
Was it their imagination, or was the light dimming as they watched? The person tried to call out for the peaceful light to come back, but they couldn't move, much less open their mouth. The beeping grew louder, a steady beat like that of a drum. Yet it also sounded like it was underwater. The person took a shaky breath and shuddered a little. The beeping became higher in pitch.
Then blue eyes opened before clamping shut again against the harsh white light above, the

Aang whirled away from Jet while simultaneously bringing his staff to angle from his body, its tip pointing at the older boy. Jet snarled and charged again, malice evident on his face and body language. The Airbender waited before swinging his staff at an angle, wind following its movement and knocking Jet off his feet. He was up in seconds. They circled each other, trying to find a weak spot in their imaginative armor.
Katara watched with a kind of fascinated horror. Their skills were almost beautiful, like a kind of dangerous dance. However, she hated the feeling of being so helpless when her boyfriend was risking his life to save hers. If only she had some water, or a kind of liquid to help her cut the ropes that kept her in place. Wait a minute... Her senses started throbbing like they had always done when water was around.
She looked around, and saw the barrels again. Her sense tingled again. It was hard to read in the dim light, but the word on one of the barrels said
High School Sweethearts Chp. 36Chapter 36
Aang was panicking big time. Katara had just told him of the reduced time they had at saving her from death. He told his friends over the walkie talkie what he had just heard, and everyone was feeling the panic as he was, though they were good at hiding it. He ran a hand through his hair more upset than ever. Aang was terrified. How were they going to get there in time?
Fortunately, his soul was still tugging him in the right direction, and the traffic had dwindled considerably. Now they moved at a much swifter speed. But time was running out. It was close to sunset. They had at least another hour before Katara was taken from them forever.
When they came to a building about twenty or so minutes later, Aang's heart sped faster and his soul sang at him in a stronger note. His eyes widened and he said, "Sokka, stop!"
He did so, and the others behind them slowed and stopped too, wondering if anything was wrong. Sokka looked at him. "What is it?" he demanded as Aang rapidly

They sat in Aang's room, Suki looking at his computer trying to find abandoned warehouses downtown. It was slow going. There were at least twenty of them on the map, about twelve that actually worked. The other eight were scattered around the place. Suki studied the map intently, wondering if there was anything that could help narrow the search. But her mind came up blank. She looked at Aang, who was pacing across the room. "Did she say anything else that might help us?"
He kept pacing as he answered. "All she said was there were new crates. That's not going to help us. They wouldn't leave things like that out for people to question." He stopped and sighed, fatigue coming down hard on him. Aang had not realized how tired he was. To Suki's eyes he looked as if he had aged again. It broke her heart to see him like this. Katara wouldn't let him stay up any longer if she was here.
She said gently, "Maybe you should get some sleep. You hardly ate, and you're going to need your st
High School Sweethearts Chp. 34Chapter 34
For the rest of the week, everything was peaceful. Nobody bothered Aang or his friends all that week, and maybe things were actually starting to get better for them and the surrounding civilians. Friday came much faster than anyone had thought was possible. When the final bell rang, Aang, Katara, Sokka, Suki, Toph, Mai, and Zuko went out to the mall again. They enjoyed being there since there was still so much to see and experience.
Afterwards the Gaang went their separate ways to get ready for their own plans and dates. Aang, Sokka, and Katara went back to Aang's house to drop him off. When they got there, he got out of the backseat and said to Katara, "I'll see you soon, sweetie." Just as he was about to close the door her hand shot out and grasped his before he could straighten up. He looked at her curiously.
She said, "Are you sure it's such a good idea to split up, Aang?"
He smiled and squeezed her hand. "Don't worry, Water Lily. It's okay now. We're safe now. Nothing i

School seemed to drag by on Monday. The Gaang was getting fidgety and nervous. Today was the day to give evidence of the Black Mamba gangs evil doing. Each one of the Gaang members tried to stay calm in order for the day to speed up. But their nerves were eating them alive like a disease.
They were planning on meeting Smellerbee and the others after school, a kind of backup when the evidence was finally given. Suki had made a disk to show the police in case they needed more persuasion. Of all the Gaang members it was Aang and Katara who were most tense. They knew something else was going to happen after this, but they didn't know what. And they hoped their instincts were wrong.
When the bell finally did ring though, the group of friends ran out of the building of Four Nations High. Like they had agreed, the converted gang waited outside in the courtyard. When they saw Aang and his friends they gestured for them to follow. The gray eyed boy looked at his friends grave faces,

The group of friends stayed at Zuko's place again, each one of them tense. Everyone had a feeling something was going to happen tonight, and it wasn't hard to figure out what. They decided to stay indoors, hoping that whatever is coming won't come but knowing that was false hope. They knew the Black Mamba would stop at nothing until these teenagers were dead and buried.
Toph had come in blind for the benefit of Ursa, but now she can see the beauty of the house, looking at anything to take her mind off the tangible tension in the air. She didn't want to fight these people anymore, even though she enjoyed her new found powers. She still wasn't sure if she wanted to keep her powers or not. It was hard, and she had never felt so torn with herself.
Toph knew the risks of keeping them. If she kept them, the risk of being found out would ruin her chances at being a normal teenage girl, or as normal as an Earth seeing person could be. Not to mention it could put everyone she cared a
High School Sweethearts Chp. 31Chapter 31
Two hours before sunrise, Katara, Mai, and Suki left their boyfriends rooms, heading back to their own. They didn't want to get caught breaking the rules, so all three young ladies left at around the same time together, knowing for a fact that no one would be up at this time.
When Katara got back to her room, she lied down on her bed with a love struck smile. She will never get over the fact that Aang was hers and she was his. It was all so surreal! Who knew someone like her could get someone like him? It must be a dream, because she felt like she was floating on a cloud, going across the sky.
Sighing, Katara snuggled under the blankets, feeling her whole body tingling. She could still feel Aang's lips on her skin, and it made her yearn for more. Again she pictured what it would be like to marry and have kids with him. Katara blushed, yet she was grinning like a lunatic. She would love to marry Aang and have a future with him. Her minds pictured the dream house, with many ro
