I'm MadTay, and I used to post on here with my sister a few years ago but we got busy with school and all that, but I'm back! Haha, and this story is about a character I made up named Natanie, but it will include the Avatar characters we all know and love too.
I'll post the first chapters soon, the very first one is just Natanie's back story so the second chapter will be when the story itself starts. I hope I get some readers and that you all enjoy it!
Cilly: Thanks! I don't plan on stopping until it's finished. :]
Adeyla: Yeah, her mom's not the nicest lady out there lol.
Happy 300 posts everybody!! I honestly can't believe this story has made it so far. When I first started writing I felt lucky to get to 50 posts, but 300? That's crazy! But I couldn't have done it without all of you, so thanks! :D *gives you all cupcakes*
CosbyRock: I have a Mac, so I'm stuck using Pages... But I don't like posting my chapters too close together, just so readers don't fall behind because I'm posting too often. If ya know what I mean, lol.
Bball: Yay! Thanks for reading. Although, part 1 is not my greatest work... *cringes* But anywho, glad you're here! Lol.
Don't worry. Whenever I post a part to my story, the only thing I can think is, "POST SO I CAN WRITE THE NEXT PART!!!" If you really want to do it, you can start typing it on wordpad and copying and paste it, and also saving it so you can type whenever you please. That's what I do.
Karou: If you don't like shipping, I think that you'll like what's coming up in part 3. :]
Chapter 36: The Last Time
I groaned. I had looked through the whole city, and couldn't find Tosh anywhere. Think, Natanie. If you were a heartbroken boy, where would you go? I asked myself.
I knew that when I was upset, I liked to firebend my troubles away. Firebend, that's it! I thought. It was like a light turned on inside my head, and I knew exactly where to find him. I turned on my heel and ran as fast as I could towards the rocky landscape where Tosh took me on my birthday, it was the place where we first started practicing with the scrolls.
Out of breath, I arrived at the right place. Tosh was standing several yards away with his back facing towards me, he was practicing his bending. I watch for a moment, and it was both amazing and terrifying to see. I'd never seen him bend so powerfully before. Maybe I've finally rubbed off on him, I joked with myself as he sent a giant wave of fire into the sky.
"Tosh?" I softly called out his name, but he didn't hear me. I said it a few more times, louder and louder, but he had no clue that I was there.
So finally, I shot some fire in his direction and turned around, ready for a fight. He dropped his stance, though, when he saw it was me.
"You're still here? I figured you'd be long gone by now," he stated bitterly.
"We're leaving tonight," I replied.
He said nothing.
"Listen, I know you're angry with me. But you have to understand why I'm leaving, let me explain."
"Remember that night, forever ago, when I had that weird dream and I came to your house and told you about it?"
He chuckled. "Yeah, you were afraid you were going to betray your country. Funny how times have changed."
I shook off his little comment, and kept talking. "Well, I think that dream was... predicting my destiny, if that makes sense."
He shook his head.
"In the dream, I was fighting alongside the Avatar. I think it meant that I supposed to leave, and do what I can to stop the Fire Nation."
He looked at me for a minute, and went back to bending. I thought I was supposed to be the girl here, I thought.
"Tosh," I shouted, so that he could hear me, "I just want you to know that you did nothing wrong! I would've left either way."
He stopped bending. "That's supposed to make me feel better?"
I ignored his snarky response and went on, "These last three years with you have been great, and there'll always be a part of me that loves you. But we just can't stay together, it won't work. But I don't want us to end in such a cruddy way either, we- you deserve better than that."
He didn't say anything, and he was facing away from me, so I had no idea what he was thinking.
I took a small step towards him. "Tosh?" I said quietly.
"What do you want me to say?... I'm sorry, I really am."
He turned to face me again.
"I'm sorry," I repeated.
He just looked at me, and still didn't say anything.
"Say something!" I shouted.
His eyes widened, "Mom," he mumbled.
"Wait, what?" I asked. What was "mom" supposed to mean?
He pointed to something behind me. "Your mom," he repeated.
I turned around and saw my dear old mother, with what looked like a small army standing behind her.
"That's her," she said while pointing at me, "that's the traitor."
"You heard the lady. Now reprimand the traitor," one of the army men ordered.
This is a flashback chapter, and for those of you who don't like Tashanie (which is most of you lol), sorry!
Chapter 35: Remember When...
I knew that Tosh and I weren't supposed to be together, but I didn't want it to end the way it did. So I planned on finding him and talking things out. The only problem, though, was that I couldn't find him anywhere. He wasn't at home or any of his usual places, so I started wandering around the city in hopes of finding him. While searching, my mind kept wandering back to the day when Tosh first confessed that he liked me...
It was a sunny afternoon, and Athena had just left to go to her "self defense" class, leaving Tosh and I alone to watch the clouds. At the moment, Zuko was on my mind, he constantly was during that time shortly after his banishment. I was always worried about him, and I was feeling bad about the last words I said to him before he left, 'Good luck, and have a nice life, Zuko', it was an awful thing to say...
"So, um, Natanie?" Tosh asked, interrupting my thoughts.
"Yeah?" I replied.
"Do you, uh, remember how I was gonna tell you something a while ago, but Athena, um, interrupted us?"
I remembered very well. It was the day of Zuko's war meeting.
"Uh yeah, I guess."
"Okay... Well I know it's been rough for you lately, it's been rough for all of us, but I think it's time I told you, uh-"
At that time I was still hurt and angry, so I was very short with everyone...
"Just get to the point!" I shouted, and he looked at the ground.
"Oh, alright... Well, I just wanted to tell you that I... Kind of liked you. A lot. And still do..."
I immediately felt bad for shouting at him, he was just nervous, not being an annoyance.
"Oh," I replied at a loss for words, "Tosh, I'm touched. I really am-"
"But?" He was disappointed.
"But, things are just confusing right now, and I just don't know. I'm really sorry."
"Oh. It's okay, I understand," he sighed.
-End of flashback-
I sighed, slightly embarrassed at the memory. With still no sign of Tosh, though, I thought back to the day we finally got together.
On another sunny afternoon, Tosh and I had just finished firebending each other for fun. It had been six months since Zuko left, and Tosh and I were growing very close, the two of us had been hanging out alone a lot. But that day, he had me laughing a ton, for some reason I couldn't remember,but when I finally quit laughing, I said: "Tosh, I was just thinking, and do you remember when you said you liked me?"
I wasn't really sure of myself, but I decided to wing it. At the time, I really did have sincere feelings for him, honest and true feelings, unlike now.
His cheeks turned three shades of red darker. "Yeah," he replied.
"Well, I've been thinking..." I was definitely winging it, "and I think that... I like you too."
"Really?" He was uncertain, and I didn't blame him.
"Yes, really." I smiled and slowly moved closer to him.
"Oh, well that's too bad. You should know that I am now in a loving and committing relationship with Princess Azula." Seriously? I thought.
I began backing away. "Oh, well, then forget I said anything, I guess." I replied, adding a very awkward laugh in at the end.
"You are seriously too gullible. Didn't I literally say ten minutes ago that I thought she'd be a better Princess of sea witches?" He laughed.
I face-palmed myself, and laughed at my own stupidity.
"Aw, come here," he said, still laughing.
I walked into his embrace and we shared our first kiss of many. We were happy.
-End of flashback-
We'd been together since that day three years ago, and I didn't want our relationship to end in such a cruddy way.
