The Voice In The Night.
Benders be on alert. After coming face to face with Amon, leader of the Equalists, Avatar Korra and Naruto discover a terrifying truth: this masked madman has the ability to take away a person's bending, permanently. Benders of Republic City are counting on their young Avatar and her friend who can also bend all four elements. But are they prepared to face such a frightening foe?
Air Temple Island Night.
Naruto in black pajama pants was walking down the hall with a glass of water before taking a drink.
He looked back as he heard Korra scream. Dropping the glass, he dashed down to Korra's room to see her in her bed, in her regular clothes and boots, sweating and panting.
"Are you OK?" He asked as she looked at him, and nodded.
"Yes. I'm fine."
Naruto narrowed his eyes before crossing his arms. "Korra. I know you're lying. Want to talk?"
She shook her head. "No. Really I'm fine." He walked over and sat down beside her.
"Is this about Amon?" She looked out her window and didn't answer. "Want me to sleep in here?" She turned to him and blushed. "I don't mean in the bed. It's only big enough for one. I mean I could sleep on the floor to talk if you need to."
"Sure." She said as Naruto stood up, and looked at her clothes. "Well, first you should change into your pajamas. I'll wait outside."
Walking out, he waited a few moments before she spoke up.
He walked back in and froze as he saw Korra. She has her hair down out of her ponytail, and bangs, having it reach close to her mid-back. She's wearing a white sleeveless shirt and light blue sweatpants.
"Wow." He said, making her blush before walking over and found a futon.
Putting it down, he turned to see Korra getting another one, and laying it out beside him. "What are you doing?" He asked as she pulled out a big blanket.
"It'll be easier to talk if we're together. Besides, it'll be like a sleepover."
Korra groaned as the light hit her before pushing her face into her warm pillow. 'Well, at least I didn't have any more nightmares.' She thought before feeling a heartbeat.
Opening her eyes, she saw she was sleeping on Naruto's chest before quickly sitting up, and moving over to her side.
"Well... That was cute."
Korra quickly turned to see Pema smiling at the door. "It wasn't like that! Naruto just stayed here after I had a bad dream." She protested as Naruto got up.
"Morning Korra." He said getting up and walked past Pema, rubbing his head. "Morning Pema."
Tenzin, Council Building.
Tenzin was sitting at a table with four other people, three men, and one woman. Two men are in blue clothing with one having long brown hair in three ponytails. One is in green clothing, and the woman is in red.
"A madman is running loose in our city. Threatening to tear it apart. We need to set up a Task Force to deal with him." The man said as Tenzin shook his head.
"No, that would only put a bigger rift between Benders, and Non-Benders," Tenzin replied as the woman looked at the man.
"Tarrlok. I'm inclined to go with your proposal. But who would head such a force?" Tarrlok stood up and smiled.
"I would be honored to..." Tenzin narrowed his eyes at him before speaking up.
"This is just another ploy to gain more power." Tarrlok shook his head before speaking.
"All I'm trying to do is help us. Think back... Forty-two years ago. Republic City was threatened by another criminal, Yakone. Your father wasn't afraid to deal with his head-on."
Tenzin glared before standing up. "This is a completely different situation, and how dare you compare yourself to Avatar Aang!"
Tarrlok sighed before turning to the others. "I'm only doing what's best. Amon won't stop with the Triads. Soon he'll come after all of us Benders. I just want to stop him... All in favor." He said as the others minus Tenzin raised their hands.
Naruto, And Korra Air Temple Island Night.
Naruto and Korra were practicing Air Bending techniques listening to music on the radio before it stopped, and Amon spoke up.
"Greetings my fellow Equalists... This is your leader..."
As he continued to talk about being Public Enemy Number One, Korra started to sweat and looked at the radio with wide eyes.
She was pulled from her thoughts as Naruto pulled her to look at him.
"Are you sure you don't want to talk?" She nodded before looking away. "Listen Korra. He'll have to get through me to get to you. I won't let anything bad happen to you." He said before stepping back. "I think that's enough for tonight let's go get some sleep. I'm helping Mako tomorrow." He said before Korra stopped him as he got to the door.
"Naruto... Could you stay in my room again?" Naruto smiled before turning to face her.
"Of course I will. I'll stay in your room until you don't need me too anymore." He replied, wrapping his arm around her shoulder and smiled.
Next Morning Mako, And Naruto.
"Come on we're late!"
Naruto said as they ran to a trolley with Mako in front. As Mako made it to the trolley, Naruto heard a tire squeal before being hit by a moped. He groaned as a teen girl ran up to him.
"Are you alright? I'm so sorry." Naruto nodded before getting up. "Yeah don't worry. I heal fast." He said looking at the girl took off her helmet.
She has long black hair, green eyes with purple eyeshadow, and red lipstick on. She's wearing a black jacket with a high collar, red on the shoulder with a back gear symbol on them, red on the elbows, and the front with red gloves. She also has red pants with pockets on the thighs and black knee-high boots.
"I'm Asami." She greeted as Naruto nodded at her.
"Naruto Uzumaki." He said, making her gasp.
"You're the second Avatar I've heard about." Naruto shrugged before smiling.
"That's me." She suddenly blushed before looking down.
"I am so embarrassed."
"Don't be. I was in a hurry to make the..." He trailed off seeing the trolley was gone. "Trolley." He sighed before Asami spoke up.
"Oh, I'm sorry. Hey, let me make it up for you. Tomorrow Kwong's Cuisine?" He shrugged before smiling.
Evening Air Temple Island.
Tenzin and the others were praying for their meal before hearing Tarrlok.
"I hope I'm not interrupting am I?"
Naruto who's sitting beside Korra looked up as Tarrlok sat beside Ikki, making Naruto scoot closer to Korra. Korra blushed as Tarrlok was talking about adding Korra to a task force he's creating.
Naruto narrowed his eyes before glancing at Tenzin. "So how about it Korra?" Naruto sighed as he took a sip from his cup.
"No," Korra answered, having Naruto spit out his drink and cough.
Korra patted his back as Tarrlok spoke. "Really? I thought you'd jump at the chance."
"So did I," Tenzin said under his breath before Korra spoke up as she looked at Naruto who was still coughing.
"I came here to train in Air Bending, and I need to focus on that."
Next Night; Kwong's Cuisine.
Naruto sighed as he walked inside in a black suit and undershirt. He walked in where a waiter took him to a booth in the back was Asami in a dark red dress with a hole showing her cleavage sat with a yellow hair clip in her hair.
They made small talk about the Team and tried to raise money before another waiter brought two trays of food. "Here you are, Miss Sato."
"Sato? Where have I heard that name?" Naruto asked, having Asami smile.
"Hiroshi Sato's my father. He invented the Sato-mobile." Naruto looked up in thought before shaking his head.
"No that's not it." He replied only to get playfully punched in the arm.
Next Morning; Air Temple Island.
Naruto sat on the steps as Korra rubbed Naga's stomach.
"Good morning Teammate!"
They looked to see Bolin and Pabu walking up. "Oh hey, Bolin." Korra greeted before being given a rose, and a clear bag with a cupcake in it.
"Thanks... What's this for?" Bolin blinked before speaking.
"What's this for?! For saving me!"
The Trio looked to see a man walk over with a large gift basket. "Tarrlok wishes you'd reconsider his offer." Korra sighed as she rested her head in her hand.
"Tell him I haven't changed my mind." The man bowed before turning away and left.
"Who's this Tarrlok? Do you need me to 'Talk' some sense in him?" Bolin asked, punching his palm.
"Just some old guy on the Council with Tenzin," Korra replied As Naruto stretched before standing. After Bolin left, Naruto turned to Korra.
"Come on. There's someone I want you to meet." She raised an eyebrow as she followed him to his motorcycle.
"And that is?"
Later, Korra stared slack-jawed inside Future Industries seeing multiple cars being made. "Naruto! You made it!" Korra looked to see Asami run over and hugged Naruto causing her to narrow her eyes.
"Naruto who is this?" She asked, having Naruto rub his head.
"This is Asami Sato. We met the other day when she hit me on her moped."
Korra gasped at that. "Are you hurt?!" Naruto shook his head as Asami took them to her father.
He's a slightly overweight man with graying black hair, wearing a grey suit, glasses, and a mustache.
"So. I understand you're dirt poor." Naruto deadpanned as Asami groaned facepalming. "It's OK... When I was your age I was a simple shoe-shiner." He went on to explain that someone gave him a chance for his Sato-mobile. And that he'll sponsor the Team. "One condition. You'll need to wear the Future Industries logo on your uniforms."
Naruto looked at Korra who shrugged. "I don't think the guys would mind. But we'll need to talk to them to be certain." Naruto turned around as Asami spoke up.
Korra glared before grabbing his arm in hers getting Naruto to raise an eyebrow.
Air Bending Temple.
Naruto and Korra were practicing their moves on a training area with the Yin-Yang symbol on the ground as Ikki, and Meelo pretended to drive in a convertible that Tarrlok gave Korra.
"I see Tarrlok's gifts are becoming more extravagant," Tenzin said as he walked over.
Korra nodded before speaking. "Yeah. That guy doesn't know how to take no for an answer."
"Korra. Are you... Feeling OK?" Tenzin asked, having her nod.
"Yeah. I'm fine." Tenzin sat down on the steps surrounding the ring before speaking.
"Have a seat, and let us talk." Korra and Naruto sat down beside him. "I'm glad you turned down Tarrlok. I just want to make sure it's for the right reason."
"I'm just... Really focused on my airbending training right now." Tenzin looked down before speaking.
"It's alright to be scared. The whole City's terrified at what's been going on right now. The important thing is to talk about our fears... Or they'll throw us out of balance." She stayed silent, having Tenzin sigh before leaving.
"I'm here if you need me."
Later, Korra laid on the railing beside Naruto who leaned on it as the girls played checkers before Tarrlok's messenger came up to them.
Korra jumped down and stomped the ground, having the man turn around. "I'm not joining Tarrlok's, Task Force!" She yelled, kicking him away.
"No. It's an invite for a Gala in your honor." He replied by handing her a stack of invitations.
City Hall Later.
Naruto in his suit walked beside Korra in a dark blue sleeveless dress, her hair down and a small part in a bun with Tenzin in red robes, Pema in a dress, and the kids running with red capes.
"I can't believe this is all for me," Korra said, holding Naruto's arm as he held it out for her.
"Tarrlok just wants you to join his task force. I'm sure he'll try something here."
Naruto looked to see Asami in her dress, ran to him, and smiled. "I'm glad you're here." She said as Tarrlok took Korra to the middle of the room to introduce her to others.
"Meelo! That's not a toilet!" Tenzin yelled running to Meelo.
Later, Naruto saw Tarrlok have a bunch of reporters swarm Korra, and pushed her to accept Tarrlok's offer of joining his force.
"Damn," Naruto grumbled under his breath before looking at Tenzin. "I have a bad feeling about Tarrlok. I want to talk to the other Councilmen." He said ignoring the flashes of the cameras.
Korra in blue armor fiddled with her thumbs before glancing across the table to see Naruto in the same armor arms crossed.
"Thanks for joining Naruto." Naruto looked at her before speaking.
"You're an idiot for doing it. I think this force will just drive more non-benders to join Amon."
She flinched at that before speaking. "Then why did you join?"
"I promised your parents I would protect you with my life. I'm not going to let them down. Korra I will never let anything happen to you."
Tarrlok explained the plan of attacking an Equalists training building before leaving.
Later, The Force drove to the building where they saw the Equalist train.
Naruto saw Korra stiffen as she saw a picture of Amon before they attacked. Water Benders shot water inside before Earth Benders had slabs pin people to the wall. One Equalist threw two gas bombs before Korra brought water up to freeze them, and gave chase.
Naruto followed after her, and saw a masked Equalist before throwing water, and had him frozen to the wall.
"Thanks, Naruto," Korra said looking at the trapped Equalist.
A Few Days Later.
Naruto stood off to the side as Tarrlok, and Korra talked to reporters before hearing Korra challenge Amon at Aang's memorial Island at midnight.
Later that night, he saw Korra go to Aang's Island before following after.
Naruto stood on the roof of the building under Aang's statue before he saw Korra walk around the entrance. She was suddenly pulled in as a rope tied around her ankles. He ran to the edge and flipped off to land in a roll. He then ran in to see Equalist tying up Korra before running in. He jumped over one, grabbed his head, and slammed him down.
Naruto got up and kicked another away before grabbing a rope. He wraps one up and spins around having the Equalist hit the others into the walls, and supports. After taking care of the group, Naruto stood in front of Korra as Amon walked out with a lantern. "That was an impressive second Avatar." He said before looking at Korra. "Our fight will come, young Avatar. But when you're at your strongest."
Naruto glared before speaking. "And you will be going through me first Amon." Amon blew out the light before disappearing. Naruto turned to light each lantern on the wall with his fire bending before turning to Korra. "You alrig-!"
He stopped as she latched onto him, and cried before finally talking about her fears as Tenzin walked in. "The first, and hardest step in overcoming your fears. Is admitting them." Tenzin said as Naruto rubbed Korra's back, and whispered in her ear to calm her down.
To Be Continued.
A/N: Thanks for reading and let me know of any mistakes.

OK, we've kinda caught up to when I stopped as I'm halfway through Ep 5. I don't think I'll be doing the love triangle as I wasn't a huge fan of that. I think it was a little worse here with Mako kinda stringing Asami along after Korra told him she liked him with a few instances.
Like after rescuing her, and arguably when Bolin was talking to him about asking on his thoughts about asking if Korra was girlfriend material. THen when breaking up with Korra went to Asami then didn't correct Korra when she came back with memory loss.
Next to be updated will be Shinobi on Board.
Nothing else to say.
Talk To You Later,
Lone Wolf Out.
