Episode two: A Leaf in the Wind
"It's so much easier to believe that only your own thoughts and beliefs are absolutely correct."-Guy Cecil
"And in the final round the Buzzard Wasps won with a decisive knock out." Letting the news paper fall a bit from her face to gaze at Tenzin with a giant grin she asked, "Whaddya say we go to the arena tonight?" leaning over a bit, paper falling to touch the table she raised an eyebrow, "Catch a few pro-bending matches."
Glancing up from her spot next to Korra, chop-sticks half-way to mouth, Yuya recalled something. Oh right Bolin and Mako…she hasn't told Korra. Would she be mad? Blinking a bit she glanced from Korra to Tenzin. Oh here it comes…the vein in his head was pulsing. For the son of an air nomad like Aang this guy sure held a temper—must have been from Katara's side.
"That sport is a mockery of the traditional art of bending." Tenzin spoke with a serious tone as he sipped his tea. Honestly Korra should have known better.
"Come on, Tenzin." Korra placed the paper down and began to motion with her hands. Huh she has been doing that a lot hasn't she? "I've dreamed about seeing a pro-bending match since I was a kid." She then turned to rest her left arm (Well toned she might add) onto the table as she jerked her thumb towards the arena behind them, "And now I'm just a ferry ride away from the arena." Turning to look at Yuya for support she motioned to her, "I mean…Yuya get's to do what she wants."
Placing the chop-sticks down and turning to glance at her friend blankly she spoke in a monotone, "Do not get me involved." She ignored the look that screamed traitor on her friend's face as she began to sip her tea.
At least someone knew right from wrong. Tenzin gave a mental nod about how Yuya reacted and let his blue eyes stay locked on Korra, "Korra your not here to watch that drivel."
Korra was currently pouting as she let her chin rest on her palm staring at Tenzin. Man there he went again. This was too much. Letting her eyes slide over to her friend she raised an eyebrow, 'Weird…Yuya actually looks a bit fidgety…wonder what she isn't telling me.'
'Korra is tuning Tenzin out again.' The bluenette noted as she let her gaze wander to the untouched salad. Yummy. Reaching over she began to eat it. Ah leafy goodness.
"You're here to finish your Avatar training. So for the time being I want you to remain on the island." Tenzin finished. His gaze unwavering as his tone.
Raising her hand, tone bit annoyed Korra shot back, "Is that why you're keeping the White Lotus sentries around?" she then motioned and glanced to some with a look that matched her tone, "To watch my every move?"
"Yes." Tenzin placed his cup down, "In order to learn Air Bending, I believe you require a calm, quiet environment free from any distractions." As an afterthought he looked towards Yuya. From what he knew and boy did he know….Yuya was one of the biggest distractions for Korra. He couldn't understand why Korra was so protective of her but then again he knew better…even if Korra did not know it was good that Yuya was protected. After all energy bending in the wrong hands could prove to be fatal.
"All right." Korra gave in as she let her hands fall onto the table and glance up at Tenzin from under her bangs, "You're the master." With that she turned raising her leg onto the seating area to prop her arm up on it, gazing out towards the arena with a longing expression.
Feeling her friend's sadness it was then Yuya decided on what she would do. She knew Korra would sneak out sooner or later so…when Korra goes to convince her to come she would. Korra always did her best and well this time she would help.
"Well then let us go. We shall see you later Yuya." Tenzin stood and started for the door pausing as Korra did not follow, "Korra?"
"Uh yeah give me a moment." Turning to face Yuya, Korra was thrown off guard as her friend gave her a peck to the cheek. Hand slapping to the spot, wide eyed Korra gaped, "What was…."
"…For good luck…your mother used to do it all the time for us." Was the off handed reply as she raised an eyebrow at her friend's expression. Jeez what was up with Korra…?
"Er right. Totally forgot since she hasn't done it…since we were I don't know twelve!" Korra stood up and shook her head, "See you later then. Man air bending clothes are too breezy."
"Huh—oh wow didn't notice…"
Tenzin could only sigh and roll his eyes. Honestly seven-teen year old girl best friends with different personalities. He wondered how his father dealt with his own group back then.
Short start to Episode two...but hey! I got to Episode two! I'm going to try and get a few more chapters out since I am so behind ahahaha...I got busy and then got lazy cuz...I've been playing otome Games on my Iphone and...to much Role Play lol...ah Role Play I love you. Silver Queen has gotten me back into Naruto so I also wanna do my Naruto fic Wild Flowers and iNSaNiTY ...crap was that how I spelt it? Ah well...okay anyways so my original idea for this fic...well...I'll be honest.
I originally had planned for it to be Korra x Yuya -insert sheepish smile and laugh here- but I'm not sure if I should anymore since I'm finding writing the cute moments well ...adorable so I'll leave it to the reviewers! Hanzo could also be an option-uh just not for Yuya since all they will have is like a siblingness type thing...ah yeah that's it. Alright then! Let's get on with the show-episode-chapter-THING...
