High School Sweethearts Chp. 21Chapter 21
The sun rose in the colors gold and red, the finger lights stretching across the sky. Aang shifted a bit before opening his eyes with something between a sigh and a groan, blinking rapidity. He yawned before looking down at the precious girl wrapped in his arms, sleeping soundly, and smiled. He almost didn't want to leave her, but he had to if he was going to get everything ready for today. So being as gentle and quiet as possible, Aang slipped out of the bed and got dressed before grabbing his wallet. Then he left the room after looking at Katara again. He felt tenderness creep into him, and knew his heart was in good hands.
Going outside after grabbing the spare key, Aang went to the side of the house, grabbed his bike, unlocked it, and took off down the road. He had somewhere to go, a couple things to buy, and when he got back, Aang was going to make this birthday for Katara the best she's ever had.

The carnival was incredible in Aang's eyes. It was a lot like the amusement park; only smaller. There was a roller coaster, a Ferris Wheel, even the Tilt A Whirl. And a bunch of other games like Targets, basketball, and more. There was a line for a Ferry Ride around the lake, with a glass bottom to see what wonders the water holds. It was nearing sunset, and Aang and Katara were on the boat, sitting on cushioned benches, watching as fish dart away and turtles swim slowly under them. They can even see some of the seaweed. They had been on practically every ride and had played all the games. Aang even managed to win Katara a stuffed panda, saying it was an early birthday present. She had laughed and kissed his cheek as a thank you.
Aang sighed, content and relaxed. It's been so long since he felt this way. Now he was really grateful to have Katara as his girlfriend. She makes him feel so special. She would go to any lengths to in

For the rest of the week, the Gang practiced their fighting abilities. Katara was number one in Tai Chi, Toph with Hun Gar, Zuko and Mai with Northern Shaolin. Sokka and Suki were best at natural fighting; punches and kicks. The oldest couple, the Shaolin Fighters, as Sokka calls them, is deadly with their own fighting skills. Toph may be blind, but she sure can hit. Aang had helped her learn to land a blow anywhere on the body. People may think that her blindness causes her to be useless; but the truth is, it has heightened her hearing and vibration sense. Aang had made her picture the body as best she could, and using him as a dummy, the Blind Bandit, as she started calling herself, can now land a hit in certain points. He had taken them, despite Katara's protests, so Toph can get a feel for the body.
Zuko and Mai didn't really need that much help. Show them a few moves and they had become even more lethal than they had ever

"I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT!" Sokka was yelling at the top of his lungs. He was pacing once again, frustrated and furious beyond all reason. "I knew Jet was evil from the start! His father had our mother killed! I loathe Jet and his dad both! I HOPE WE CATCH JET SO THEY CAN BOTH ROT IN JAIL!" Aang and his friends are sitting in Sokka's and Katara's backyard once again. Aang and Katara had explained what had happened at school. The couple had returned to History class, assuring Iroh that they were okay. Iroh had been a little reluctant, but had continued the lesson. Throughout the rest of the day, the young mind reading teens had stayed in constant communication until Suki and Sokka brought them home. After that, things had gone down from there.
Mai and Zuko were standing, him with his arms crossed and fuming while Mai played with her knives, her face blank but eyes raging like an inferno. Toph sat with her feet on the grou

After Aang had come home, he had given Appa a bath, Gyatso had given the dog his remedies and some sliced apples, and by the time they were done, Appa looked a million times better. He and Aang were in the boy's room, sitting on the floor. Aang was scratching the dog's belly, Appa lying on his side, his tongue lolling. He was talking to Katara in his mind. It seems that no matter how far apart they are, they can still communicate with each other.
'Appa has been great,' Aang was saying. 'He seems to have gotten used to the place pretty quickly. Gyatso likes him, and it seems Appa likes him back. We actually gave him sliced apples.'
Katara mentally laughed. 'That's adorable! I'm actually surprised how quickly he became at home. I'm glad for both of you. After everything you've been through, you deserve a furry companion.' He could sense she yawned. 'Well, I'm pre

"Fighting isn't all about strength," Aang was saying. "It's about using your opponent’s energy against them." He gestured for Suki to take a stance before he did so himself. No matter what kind of fighting style it is, there is always a kind of balance. "You have to be quick and accurate." As he talked, Aang moved in and tried a quick jab. Suki dodged; but Aang was a second quicker. While she was moving, Aang had his foot around Suki's ankle. She started flailing a little and Aang punched a series of points in her body. She was flailing more, trying to keep herself from falling. "After you hit some points in your opponent’s body, they start to lose their balance." He struck one more time, a light blow on the side of the head, and Suki crumpled to the ground, the grass breaking her fall. It was over as soon as it had started. Their friends had awed looked on their faces. "In the end, their own weight becomes their downfall; quite literally,
Chapter 7: WhisperWhisper
Four years had passed since Aang and Katara got married. They had a three year and three month old daughter who gets spoiled with love and affection from her parents. She has shown signs of being a Waterbender, which was wonderful news for the couple. Even though Aang was a little disappointed about the Bending gene, he still loved her with all his heart. When he first held his tiny daughter in his arms, a little whisper said in his mind, 'I'm a father.' It was then that he promised he would be the best dad any child could ask for. When he had asked his wife, "What should we name her?", Katara had looked at him with tired loving eyes and said one word.
Aang had kissed her forehead and passed the baby into her mother's arms. "Kya it is," he had said; then looked at the sleeping bundle, her breath like a whisper. "Welcome to the world, Kya."
Since then, they had been getting used to parenthood. It wasn't easy, but in the end, the hardships of parenting was worthwhil
Chapter 6: TraditionTradition
Two years later, Aang's and Katara's relationship remained strong. Katara was eighteen now, a beautiful young woman that could compete against Aphrodite herself and win hands down. Her chocolate curls went beyond the small of her back, her body has filled out nicley, and her blue ocean eyes seem to glow. Aang, sixteen years old, has grown taller and stronger. He now towered over Katara easily. The silver and gray in his eyes had a serious look to them, but he was still that same fun loving goof that everyone has come to love. His muscles are firmer; not a lot, but enough for people to notice. He's not the same scrawny kid they had thought of him at the beginning. Aang was now a young man. And today was very special: it was his and Katara's anniversary. Every year, it was tradition for them to go to Iroh's tea shop: The Jasmine Dragon. They would leave a few days early in order to get there. By the time they would arrive, it would be their anniversary day. Iroh would have the
Chapter 5: Starry NightStarry Night
The next night, after the party, Aang sat outside in the courtyard, watching the millions of stars twinkle in the indigo sky. The plants have shriveled up for the season, waiting for the warm weather to come back so they could claim their places again. He was feeling calm, content. He never realized how lucky he was to have friends like the ones he has now. They treated him like an equal.
Unlike his old friends from the temple, who had kept him out of playing games with them after they found out about him being the Avatar, the friends he has now had shown him he was still a kid, a person; they didn't treat him like the most powerful Bender in the world. Instead, they treated him like a human being. Aang has found his true friends. In their own ways, everyone in the group had grown up in some ways. They had fought a war that should not have happened. But despite that, there was still some kid burried underneath the tough exterior, which was proven by how the group acted las
