Sorry if it took so long I wanted the ending to be perfect.
LAST CHAPTER GUYS! I HOPED YOU ALL ENJOYED THIS STORY!
Re-cap: Kalina has decided to run away after the whole ordeal with Prince Zuko's father. She is alone in her room packing her stuff but not for long. Admiral Zhao enters the room and she feels threatened by him because she doesn't even know who he is.
The Beginning of the End:
"Oh, forgive me for being so rude, my name is Admiral Zhao and I am the heir to the throne, after I capture the Avatar of course."
"That still doesn't give you the right to...wait a minute, did you say heir? I thought Prince Zuko was the heir to the throne." Kalina said really confused. "Why is this man telling me this?" she thought.
"He will regain his title if he captures the Avatar but that's not likely because I am going to capture him first. But enough of this, I didn't come here to talk about that royal pain in the neck. I came here to talk about you" he said with a smirk.
Kalina was scared. The smirk that he was giving her gave her the feeling that she should get out of here as soon as possible.
"What do you want?" Kalina asked nervously, but deep down she knew all along what he wanted but she just brushed off her women's intuition for now. Trying to blind her self, not wanting to know what she knew.
"I want you to dance for me" said Zhao waving his arm once to the floor.
Kalina was appalled "How could this man be so bold as to ask me to do something like that" Kalina thought angrily.
"I'm sorry but Firedancers don't dance when they are told" Kalina said with her chin up and her eyes in a gaze that told anybody that was looking at her that she meant business.
Zhao saw the challenge in her eyes. But he wasn't the type of man to just back down that easily.
"Oh you are gong to dance for me whether you like it or not" he said advancing to her and grabbing her by the arm. Kalina tried to jerk away but she couldn't, his grip on her was way to strong.
"Take your filthy hands off of me!" Kalina yelled. But he didn't comply. He simply grinned at her and leaned over to give her an unwanted kiss. She jerked harder, this time she managed to slip away from him and give him three slashes from her nails to his right cheek.
"Don't you ever touch me again" Kalina said with fury in her lips.
Zhao was amassed by her technique to get away from his grasp. He touched the marks she had left him and smiled at the blood that was printed on his fingers.
He started advancing to her once more.
Kalina stood her ground. "If you touch my again you'll be sorry" Kalina warned him. He simply chuckle at her remark and reached out to grab her once more. Just then the door opened, it was Zuko. They both looked at him in surprise.
"Well, well, well if it isn't the royal brat" said Zhao with a snicker.
"Don't…you…touch…her…again" said Zuko with fire already in his hands. He had heard Kalina on his way up to her room. So he knew exactly what was going on.
Kalina had to admit, with Zuko being there she felt much safer.
"Kalina, come with me" said Prince Zuko
Kalina started to walk to him, but was stopped by Zhao's arms grabbing her by the waist.
"Ugh, I told you never to touch me again!" screamed Kalina.
Before Prince Zuko could react he saw Kalina's skin start to glow. Her face was in a complete state of concentration. The room got even hotter. She was producing heat from all over her body. A trick taught by all Firedancers when unwillingly grabbed by a man.
"Ahhh, you wench" said Zhao letting go of the girl. His palms were deformed by the steam she had produced.
Kalina fell to the floor. She felt so weak. She had only used this tactic once and that was when she had first succeeded the attack. She had never done it anymore since then. She remembered Headmistress Suki telling her that she had never seen any Firedancer do it so well before. But this greatness put her in the infirmary for almost a week.
"Are you alright Kalina" asked Zuko rushing to her aid.
"I am fine just get me out of here" said Kalina barley catching her breath.
Zuko looked at her. And she looked back. She nodded at him giving him his answer. "Take me far away from here, take me with you" said Kalina embracing him as tightly as she could. He did the same in return "I will. I am not going to let you go that easily this time" Zuko said with a smirk.
Kalina smiled back. She felt so much security in his arms; she never wanted him to let her go.
Zuko lifted her up, cradling her in his arms. As they were about to leave Zhao gave them an evil laugh. They both turned at this. "You think you can just take her. She is illegal for you to take, remember. They will stop you and have you arrested."
Zuko laid Kalina gently on the bed and started to walk towards Zhao. "Will I guess I am going to have to kill you to get a head start then, won't I?" Zhao just chuckled at this and signaled Zuko to come closer. Zuko got himself ready to fight. As Zhao was about to give the first blow he noticed that something was wrong. Kalina just smiled.
"What is wrong with me? What did you do to me you stupid wench!"
"When you touched me I took away your power to bend fire. But don't worry it will come back in about a year or so, so don't worry" Kalina said with grin.
Zhao sank down to the floor looking at his hands still not believing it. He was still trying to produce fire out of his hands, but nothing was happening.
Zuko looked at him with a small smile. "What is an Admiral of the fire nation without his ability to bend fire? I think you have just been demoted" Zuko chuckled.
Zhao just looked at him ready to cry, but instead he gave out a scream of failure and defeat.
Zuko went back to Kalina and picked her up as he first did. He looked at her in amazement. "I didn't know you could do that." he said to her as they went passed the door.
"You never asked" she said with a smile. She leaned her head on his chest and almost fell asleep when she heard a familiar voice.
"Kalina!" it was her sister Yoko. "What happened? Are you okay? What happened Zuko?"
Kalina looked at her sister with the saddest eyes. She didn't want to leave her but she couldn't stand it here anymore.
"Zuko could you put me down here I need to speak with my sister."
Zuko complied and laid her down on a nearby bench. He embraced her cheek with one hand and left her so that she could talk to her sister.
"Kalina are you okay?" asked her sister.
"Yoko listen to me. I am going to leave this place. I will be going with Prince Zuko."
Yoko looked at her sister confused, but then she smiled.
"I knew this was going to happen someday. I knew that Prince Zuko would come back for you and take you with him." Yoko started to cry.
"Please don't cry." Kalina said tearing up "You can come with us. We could be together. I'm sure Zuko wont mind."
"No, I belong here. Besides I really like it here. I couldn't part from this place. This is my home. You have my blessings I want you to be happy with the man you love. And besides with you gone I will be # 1 out of all the Firedancers." Yoko said chuckling and crying at the same time.
Kalina chuckled as well at this remark.
"Now go before somebody sees you" Yoko said wiping the tears on her face. Kalina nodded. Zuko came to her aid as she tried to get up.
"Go this way it will lead you into an ally that leads you straight to the docks." signaled Yoko.
Kalina looked at her sister and with tearing eyes and held out her hand so she could grab it.
"I love you little sister." said Kalina.
Yoko held her hand tight not wanting to let go.
Kalina got her other hand and reached out to her necklace. The necklace was a trinket that her mother had passed down to Kalina.
"Here take it. This will be for you to always remember that I will always be there whenever you need me." Kalina slid it in her sisters other hand.
Yoko closed her hand tightly at it. She smiled at her sister for the last time, and ran off to stall the other girls that where already heading to the Veranda.
Zuko ran to the ally that Yoko talked about and sure enough the sea was up ahead.
"You could put me down now I think I can walk from here" said Kalina.
"Are you sure?" asked Zuko letting her down
"Yea." answered Kalina.
He helped her on the ship, and led her to his room.
"Stay here. My men should be coming any minute now. I had ordered them to be ready to leave at this hour. I have to be up there to give them further notice. I'll be right back"
Kalina nodded at this. And as he was about to leave he looked back at her and smiled. "She is finally here, with me" he thought to himself. Then he turned and was out the door.
"We will finally be together" Kalina thought to herself.
Zuko was on top of the ship now giving orders, when he saw his uncle getting on the ship.
"Uncle I must speak with you"
"Yes Prince Zuko" said Iroh.
They stepped into the meditation room. Iroh was very concerned over the well being of his nephew, especially over the whole incident with his father.
"Are you alright Prince Zuko? You look a little tense."
"Yes, I'm fine. I just um well I have something to discuss with you." Said Zuko
"Okay" Iroh said sitting down but still looking at his nephew.
"Okay" Zuko said also sitting down.
"Kalina has decided to come with me on my journeys" Zuko said finally.
Iroh just starred at his nephew with his mouth wide open.
"So she is here. Right now!" said Iroh very excited.
"Well yes" answered Zuko uncertain of why his uncle was reacting like this. He was excepting a more aggressive approach.
"Well why didn't you say so? I want to see her. Where is she?"
"She is in my room. You're not mad that I brought her here." asked the very puzzled Zuko.
"Of course not, why would I be mad." said Iroh.
Zuko gave his uncle a smile and went off to get Kalina.
"It is a pleasure to finally meet the great Admiral Iroh. Your travels are legendary." Kalina said all this while bowing.
"My dear" Iroh said retrieving the girl from the bow. "The pleasure is all mine. And you can just call me Iroh. I am so pleased to finally meet the girl that had captured my nephew's heart."
"Uncle" said Zuko a little embarrassed and also blushing a little.
Kalina chuckled at this. She was so thrilled to meet Zuko's uncle. He would say so many good things about him when she first met Zuko.
After a long consultation with Kalina about Zuko and his many embarrassing moments. Iroh bowed at Kalina and kissed her hand.
"I will leave you two alone now. I'm sure you both have much to talk about" Iroh left them alone in the meditation room.
They just stood there silence not knowing what to say. Zuko broke the silence first.
"Come with me" he said holding out his hand towards her. She took it and they were out of the room and he took her up on deck.
"It's beautiful out here" Kalina said while looking up at the moon and the stars.
"Kalina are you sure you want to stay here with me on this ship?" Kalina looked at him confused. "Of course I do Zuko" she said grabbing his hand and putting it to her heart. He could feel her heart beat. He sighed and took her hand and kissed it. "What about your dancing you love to dance"
"I don't care about any of that as long as I'm with you." She said hugging him tightly.
"Kalina" He said while getting something out from his pocket. "Will you wear this" He handed her a ring with a sun shaped dark red diamond. She marveled the beauty of the ring. "I've wanted to give you this ring for over 2 years now. This ring is a promise from me that I will marry you when the time comes." Kalina looked at him and started to cry.
"Yes of course I will wear it!" she said almost tackling him to the ground. He was very surprised at this but he liked it that he made her happy. They both kissed under the moonlight and lived happily ever after…well for now.
