In the years fallowing Sozin’s Comet all of the members of the gang had drifted off to start new war free lives. Toph had gone home and worked things out with her parents. Sukki, Tylee and the other Kyoshi warriors had return to Kyoshi Island and for a while Sokka had joined them. However it was not long before he had to return to attend to his duties in the South Pole. Sukki had retired and joined Sokka not long after that. Zuko, who had of course become the Fire Lord, married Mai. Aang as Avatar had traveled the world with Katara by his side.
Katara had loved traveling with Aang but after a while she had grown tired of it and had decided to settle down somewhere and wait for him to finish sewing is wild oats. She knew he would, in time, return to her.
For a while she considered going home but had decided ageist it. It was cold there, and a long way for Aang to travel to see her. Many more places were considered before she decided on the Fire Nation. Zuko was there, they got along well, and she could work as an ambassador for the Southern Water Tribe.
The night before, she had left Aang and traveled on alone to the Fire Nation’s Capitol. Arriving in the morning she had been greeted warmly by both Zuko and Mai. She was shown around the palace before being taken to her rooms and aloud to rest. In the evening she was shown to a dining room in the royal apartment complex. There she found Zuko and Mai waiting for her in the richly furnished room. They ate, and drank as they talked over of old time and new adventures.
After the food had gone and the servants sent away, they still drank. Over the years both Katara and Zuko had learn to be world class drinkers, drinking many people they knew, including their respective lovers, under the table. They had polished off three bottles of fire whiskey and where well on their way to finishing off a fourth. Around bottle two, Mai not wanting to get stumbling drunk, and knowing that the pair would still be talking and drinking when the sun came up the next day, had excused herself and headed for bed, leaving Katara and Zuko to drink and laugh along.
“I promise you. Sokka had the whole thing in his month.” Katara laughed as she poured more liquor in to their glasses.
Zuko took a drink from his renewed glass. “I’m sorry I just don’t believe you.”
“It’s true,” Katara straightened up and acted proud, “We of Water Tribe have big mouths, we can fit a lot in there.” With that both fell back in to load laughter.
“You will have to show me that some time.”
“Anytime you want.” Katara giggled as Zuko poured them more to drink. “I have lots I could show you.” She said trying to make a seductive face but giggling all the way through.
“I doubt there is anything you can show that I have seen before.” Zuko said is his most superior voice teasing her.
“How about this?” With that Katara pulled herself on to her knees and opening the collar of her robes bearing her breast with a bit of a drunken wobble. For a small second Zuko was shocked to see the breast in front of him. He recovered before Katara could see this slip.
“Nope see them before.” It was a bold face lied but being drunk nether notes the signs of a lie.
“What? No you haven’t.” She said tucking the globes back in to their hiding place.
“We lived together for a long time while I trained Aang. I got to see a lot of things.”
