Hello everyone…this is the story that i have been writing….well some of it….please be kind it has not been edited and i am still writing it. I am actually hoping to change somethings and take it out of the Avatar world and change names and such and possibly make it a novel…it is almost novel length. this is the first few pages of it…..i will not be posting all of it on here but i will post some of it.
Let me know what you think
All I could do was cry. He left me! He left me alone! How could he do that to me? We were family. We had decided to get married about 2 years ago and he just leaves me. I donât understand! We started dating when we were in our 20s. We have known each other our whole life.
I have nowhere to go! Before when I needed comfort and love I went to Air Island Temple and Tenzin would be there for me but now he wasnât mine any more. He belongs to her! That little Air Acolyte girl she is nothing better than a thief! She stole the man I love! I will never forgive her; I will never forgive them both!
2 years earlier
We were on Oogi, Tenzinâs sky bison, flying high above Republic City. This is how we spent most of our Saturdays together. I was always off on Saturdays and we would spend them together the whole day. We were inseparable. Tenzin was everything to me. He had just asked me to marry him a week earlier. The only person we had told was Aang; Tenzinâs father, my spiritual guide, and our Avatar, he was everything to us and there were no secrets between the three of us. Aang had promised to keep it secret from everyone else until we were all in the same place. This was our last moments of pure joy!
We were heading back down to Air Temple Island when we heard the sound. The sirens were going off; we look at each other with a knowing look. We couldnât get down fast enough. Once off Oogi the Air Acolytes were running toward us. Tenzin grabbed me by the waist the air bended us to the ground. Tears were already on his face. I gently kissed him on the cheek as the tears flowed from my eyes. The sirens meant that Aang was not well. In fact by the time we got to him, he was close to death. Aang had been sick for a while but when we told him we were engaged he seemed to be rallying. He wanted to walk me down the aisle. I made him promise that he would be there and that he would dance with me and he said he would. Seeing him pass from this world into the spirit world was hard. I knew that part of him was being reborn as we watched somewhere in one of the two water tribes, but the other part of me wanted Aang back here with us! We werenât done needing him! He was the only father I knew. Katara, Tenzinâs mother, and all of Tenzinâs siblings were already around Aangâs bed. Tenzin ran to his side. I on the other had stood back and waited to be called to his side. I knew that when he wanted me he would call me over to him. Standing in the door way with me was Pema, an Air Acolyte who had grown up on the island, she was crying as well. We both hugged each other at the thought of this being the end of Aang.
âLin, come closer,â Aang called me over to him with a weak smile. I dried my tears and put a smile on my face. When I got closer I grabbed Tenzinâs hand for strength.
âLeave us. I want to talk to my little Lin alone. Yes Tenzin that means you!â Aang smiled at his family and nodded to them that it would be okay.
âSo how are you feeling? Done anything important today,â I tried to make is seem like this was just a normal day and like we always meet like this. Aang tried to sit up and act like nothing was wrong. I put my hand out, touching his weak chest and pointed to the pillow. He didnât put up much of fight since he was so weak.
âYou remind me so much of your mother. She would have been so proud of you, Lin. You have grown into a beautiful, wonderful woman! I hope that I was part of that and that you know that I love you as if you were my own child. I am so happy that you and Tenzin are so happy together. He is going to need you when I leave. He is the last Air Bender he has a long legacy to keep up and it is burden that he can bare with you by his side. I promise that I havenât told anyone about the engagement and I will keep that promise. Know that I will always be with you and that no matter where life takes you or what happens to you I am always proud of you and so is your mother! She was a true fighter and you have so much of her in you. I love you so much Lin and it pains me to say Goodbye but the time has come for me to say Goodbye.â He kissed my hand, since it was still so close to him. I leaned in and hugged him as tight as I could. I could feel how weak he was at that moment. I kissed his cheek as tear soaked as mine.
âThank you for everything. You mean everything to me. I donât know how I will go on without your guidance. I love you Aang.â I kissed him again on the cheek and then whispered in his ear, âgoodbyeâ
âLet Tenzin in please. I love you Lin.â I smiled at him as I stood up and I walked out the door. I turned to Tenzin, âhe said you are next.â
âOkay. Just breathe,â Tenzin spoke to himself as I gently kissed his cheek as he walked past me into the room, where his father lay dying.
n the hallway there were Tenzinâs siblings, Bumi and Kya along with their mother Katara. Katara was standing close to her brother Sokka who had his arms wrapped tight around his sister, they have been through so much together they have always seemed so close and Sokka was a source of strength for me when my mother died. He taught me how to fight without my bending. Fire Lord Zuko and Queen Mai were also there, Fire Lord Zuko was the first person to embrace me once Tenzin went into Aangâs room.
âLittle Lin it has been a long time since I have seen you last. My how you have grown, your mother would be so proud of the amazing woman you have turned into and to be the newly elected Chief of Police she would be over the moon with that news. These are difficult times and we will get through them as we always do, together,â he told me as he wiped tears from my eyes.
âThank you Zuko, I think I want to be alone right now. I am heading to my room,â I stated as I turned from them and headed down the hallway. Katara was close behind me. I felt her motherly hand on my shoulder. I turned to face her and she had a smile on her face. She took a handkerchief out of her pocket and handed it to me. She hugged me in a way that only a mother could.
âThis is hard times for all of us but you canât lock yourself up. You have done that in the past and I wonât let you do it again. You need to be with us. Tenzin is going to need you,â she whispered to me in way that was both kind and forceful. I knew that I would not be going to my room. I would stand and wait with my family. With her arm around me and the silent sobs that were coming from me I returned to my family.
âKatara you could have let her go you know. She is a big girl now and if she wants to be alone she can,â Sokka yelled to us from down the hallway.
âSokka hush up! Katara didnât force me she just made a very good point and I canât argue with her reason. Plus I should be with family now! You guys are what is most important to me!â I smiled as Kya ran to me with tears in her eyes. âOh Kya! I am so sorry.â I touched her growing belly Aang would never get to meet his grandchild and that seemed to be the worst part somehow. Aang was so great when we were all children. He seemed so happy with us all around him and he seemed to be able to tap into the inner child that was alive and well in him.
When we hit our lowest point that is when we are open to the greatest change
