Katara smiled when Zuko reached out to help her. "I am not helpless, Zuko," she reproached in a teasing voice. "I'm just pregnant." Even with her words, her eyes showed how much she appreciated his concern.
Leaving Zuko to tuck his daughter into bed, Katara returned to her bedchamber. She could feel a tense sensation in her neck and rubbed in with the palm of her hand. With a sigh, she pulled out the pins that held back her hair, letting the brown layers drift on her shoulders like a soft tide. Removing her outer dress, Katara noticed her image in the mirror. Self consciously, she eyed herself, taking note of the areas that had started to change. Her face was becoming more angular and her limbs a little larger. She had a small belly, large enough to prove her pregnancy but not so much that it showed through the heavy fabric of her robes. The waterbender smiled to herself coyly, playfully tossing her hair over her shoulder and rubbing her upper arms gently. Closing her eyes, she thought of Zuko, how his touch was so light and filled with such warmth. The memories gave her a tingling feeling and she smiled even more.
She would have been lost in her thoughts all night if she hadn't felt a change in the wind and opened her eyes. Something was different and she felt a pair of eyes watching her.
watching her stand in front of the mirror, watching as she examined herself. Zuko approached, allowing his fingers to lightly brush against her arms before moving them to her sides, resting them upon her hips.
Taking quick notice how tense she was, he began rubbing the back of her neck and shoulders for her before leaning his head against the long locks of hair that flow over her shoulders, taking in a breath of her sweet scent. It was like a faint Vanilla mixed with chilly sweet snow.
The first thing that Katara noticed was the surge of heat behind her. As the fingertips brushed her arms, she shivered with a chill that only one person could bring her. She sighed and leaned back against his chest as he rubbed her neck, loosing herself in his touch. A smile jumped across her lips as he kissed her skin, a small laugh escaping as she breathed.
"She finally went to sleep then?" she inquired, snuggling deeper against the warmth of her lover's embrace.
Circling around, she looked up at his face and smiled. Kissing his lips delicately, the waterbender looped her arms around Zuko's neck. "As crazy as our day has been," she told him. "I am so glad that you will be mine for the rest of the night."
Sliding her hand off his shoulders and down to his fingers, she lead him to the soft bed and sat down on the edge. She could feel the baby settling into womb for a long sleep and she carefully swung her legs up on the bed. Once she was in her place, she waited for Zuko to join her.
"I have been thinking about names for our child," she said. "I want it to be special and unique. I want it to mean something about our lives together. What do you think?"
