I walked out onto the docks, staring down at the ground below me, avoiding eye contact with everyone. Once I got to the end, Zuko greeted me.
"Hey, Katara." He said, blushing, his cheeks turning a rosy shade of red.
"Hi, Zuko." I said, trying to act happy to see him when in reality, I was dying inside.
"Um, so..." he said, gesturing over to the yacht behind him.
My eyes followed his gesture and I gasped.
"Whoa..." I breathed.
"Yeah, um..." he trailed off.
"I guess being royalty has its perks then?" I said, chuckling.
"Haha, yeah, I guess it does." He said, running his fingers through his hair. "Well, come aboard."
I followed him onto the yacht, gasping at how luxurious everything looked from the red velvet couches and chairs to the red Fire Nation insignia on the wooden deck below my feet.
He turned around and held his hand out. I hesitated before putting my hand in his.
"Zuko, I don't-" I stopped.
"Katara, its fine. I know how you feel about me." He smiled.
He pulled me over to a picnic blanket spread out across the deck of the yacht.
I sat down on the blanket.
"So, uh, this whole marriage thing... it's pretty crazy, isn't it?" Zuko asked, blushing.
"Yeah, I suppose so. Did your... did your uncle tell you why we're getting married?"
"Um, yeah, a bit. You're supposed to help me keep the Fire Nation's economy under control otherwise it's going to go into chaos."
"Oh," I replied. "Zuko, I'm sorry. This is too weird." I said, scrambling up.
Zuko looked at me with sadness in his eyes.
"I'm sorry. I have to go." I said, running home.
