No Moon at All

Sung by Doris Day


It was late, around three in the morning. The park in Republic City was completely empty, save two people. It was a new moon that night, invisible to the human eye, and without artificial light, the grassy hills were dark.

On a picnic blanket, under a tree, huddled together were the general of the United Forces and the Avatar. A lamp lay off to the side, giving off a dim firelight.

This was the first night Korra and Iroh had seen each other in half a season. The mid-spring weather was a comfortable cool and the air smelled like rain.

They sat there, perfectly content in watching the stars and just being together. He would steal a kiss or two, being chaste out of respect for the young lady. Her heart would race every time their lips met like she was a child with a crush. She hated that she blushed so often around him, but he found it endearing.

Iroh sat up, causing Korra to furrow her eyebrows.

"What is it?" she asked. He looked at her with what she could call a thoughtful expression. But then he smiled and pulled her into his lap. Tucking a stray strand of her hair away, his gaze flickered to her lips before returning to her ocean blue eyes.

"I love you," he said casually, like it was part of average conversation. He cupped her face and kissed her deeply. Her mouth responded to his immediately, moving in perfect sync. She tangled her fingers in his hair, not allowing him to go anywhere.

"I love you, too." She kissed him again a little more feverishly. Iroh's hands migrated to the small of her back, holding her against him. Her palms rested on his chest, slowly curling and fisting his shirt.

Iroh swiftly snapped his fingers, and the flame from the lamp went out, extinguishing them in complete darkness.

"The night is right and bright moonlight might interfere."


AN: and I leave the rest to your imagination. Cheesy ending, I know, but I feel like they would say and do things like this.

But seriously, I'm obsessed with that song "No Moon at All." It's a great date night song and a good fit for this scene. It's all romantic with just the right amount of sexy. Check it out!
