Avatar: Makawa's Tale (TLA Fanfic)

It has been a long time since Avatar Aang created an era of peace and the Fire Nation are hungry for power again. Makawa of the Earth Kingdom is the new Avatar, and all he cares about is killing the Fire Nation soldiers that destroyed his life. Soon, though, he realises that the first step on his Avatar journey is learning fire bending. Can he trust anyone? Or is he just going to stand by and watch his world go up in flames. Literally.


3. Flame

“Oh for god’s sake Makawa, be careful with that flame!” Nateki yelled once again.

“I’m sorry!” He yelled, “It just keeps getting bigger!”

Makawa was trying so hard to keep his flame small, but it kept growing wild and out of control. Nateki marched over to him, took the flame from his hands and shrunk it right down.

“You need to master control before you can work with fire.” She shook her head sadly, as if he had betrayed her somehow.

“Come on, Nateki! I just need more practise!” he flailed his arms in frustration.

“No,” she held up her pale hand to silence him, “you focus completely on making your flame menacing that you aren’t pulling your energy from the breath.”

Nateki held the flame in front of her with both hands and demonstrated letting the fire grow when she inhaled, and shrink when she exhaled.

“Oh, so what do you want me to do? Just sit here and breathe?” He yelled in exasperation.

“Yes.” She sat down and continued her demonstration, leaving Makawa to sit and breathe.

He sat there for what seemed like forever, breathing in through his nose and out through his mouth.

“I’m tired of this!” he spat, shaking the earth beneath Nateki.

She gave him an evil glare.

“Who are you?” He shot the earth beneath him forward so that they were standing right opposite each other.

“I told you, my name is Nateki.” She growled, anger rising in her eyes.

“I mean who are you really?”

She squeezed her eyes shut, as if she were feeling great conflict inside her.

“Fine.” She whispered, “I’ll tell you everything.”
