Day 6: Socks
They texted late into the night before the dance. They asked each other all the oddest questions. Learned each other’s favorite colors, their dream job, and the places they wish to one-day travel. Midnight rolled around and neither teenager cared. They were enjoying each other’s conversation more than they would sleep. Zuko learned everything about Katara accept her name. But he didn’t care anymore. He cared about this girl, no matter who she was. She was hilarious, sweet, and free spirited. She had a spark in the way she saw things that Zuko was not used to, and it was thrilling, inspiring. He was more excited than ever to meet her. After multiple goodnights, they both drifted into sleep with smiles painting their gentle features.
Today was the day. Their hearts were beating fast. Their stomachs were doing flips within them. Zuko got read alone as his place but was quite blinded by nerves. He was clumsy and messy, but eventually got himself put together.
Katara got ready at Suki’s house, thankful for her friends help with doing her hair.
“I can’t help but think you are going a little overboard for Sadie Hawkins,” Suki put her hair up into a similar, but much more simple up-do.
“Its an important night! I want to look good for it,” Katara slipped on her long nylon socks.
Suki raise an eyebrow at her socks, “Those aren’t a but much?”
“What?” Katara defended. “They make me feel sexy!”
“A little too sexy, who on earth is your date and what are you hoping to get?”
“Well, he may or may not know that he is going with me, so I want to make sure he is impressed.”
“Wait, not only does no one know who your date is, he doesn’t even know?” Suki stopped and stared at her. “What on earth?”
“I didn’t want him to tell anyone!”
“So you don’t even know if he WANTS to go with you!” Suki totally forgot working on her hair and let go, letting the bobby pins hold half of it up while the other half melted into a mess. “What guy would say yes blindly like that!?”
“He did! And I am so glad he said yes! I haven’t stopped talking to him all week, and he is just as amazing as I thought.” Katara blushed thinking about the last 24 hours of texting.
“Oh my gosh,” Suki said as if she had just been told a secret.
“What?” Katara’s eyes widened.
“It’s Jet isn’t it? Girl, you know that guy is bad news! He went to Juvy last year!!”
“No its not!” Katara laughed, relieved she had not figure it out.
