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.

5. Temperment

Rain splashed down, making the mud unbearable to walk through. Nateki cursed herself. Why did she leave? Why did she lose her temper so quickly? He was only trying to relax. Now, she had put them both at risk.

She sat on a broken tree trunk and made a small fire to keep her warm in the cold, unrelenting weather. It had been such a ridiculous fight they had that morning. Had it really only been a few hours ago? Maybe he wasn’t far.

“Relax, Nateki,” Makawa waved his hand airily, “you’re stressing out way to much over this.”

“Because you aren’t paying attention!” She yelled, sending a small bush up in flames, “You keep getting distracted! This war will never end if a lazy slob like you is the Avatar!”

Makawa sat up and stared at her. This was the first time he had ever been lazy since he met Nateki! Fire bending was just too hard for him.

“That’s it, Makawa,” She growled with fire at her fingertips, “I’m leaving!”

She grabbed her small bag of belongings and stomped off.

“Good luck teaching yourself!” She spat venomously over her shoulder.

It wasn’t until Nateki had been gone for an hour that Makawa realised that he had made a massive mistake. He couldn’t teach himself fire bending! He could barely teach himself table manners!

The heavy clouds, which had been looming over the forest all day, began to let out all of the rain they could find.

“Come on Kumi,” He said, swinging easily into the saddle, “We have to find her.”

It was dark now, and the rain still hadn’t stopped whipping his face.

“Nateki?” He called once again into the dark.

What was that? Nateki was sure that she had heard something. She extinguished her fire and held her breath.

“Nateki?”

There it was again! There was no mistaking Makawa’s voice.

She ran. She ran faster than she ever had before. The mud puddle squelched beneath her feet and she stumbled but she didn’t care anymore.

“So, you’re searching for my sister, huh?” Came a sneer from behind Makawa.

He turned to see the prince in a small boat nearby.

“What? You mean Nateki won’t even mention my name anymore?” He smiled, though the pain was clear in his eyes.

“Look,” The prince sighed, “I know that my sister is a little short-tempered at times, why don’t we look for her together?”

“Umm… okay, I guess.”

And with that, Shibokai guided Makawa right into his trap undetected. Or so he thought…
