Korra chuckled, nervously, after hearing Mako talk about her in a past tense, knowing it was all done to protect him and JIn. “No, its no joke. My name is Korra.” She could see he was getting a bit flustered and embarrassed from the way he managed to place his hand behind his neck. A gesture he always did when things were out of his control. Some things hadn’t changed, which made her smile. “I look like your late wife? I’m sorry, but did something happen to her? If I may ask, that is.”
She could steel feel his golden eyes looking over her, a bit mesmerized by her appearance, but surprised, he hasn’t figured things out yet. However, that may be a good thing, given the circumstances at the moment. All she wanted to do was ensure her family was safe, especially now some of her enemies, knew she was alive.
They were soon interrupted by Jin, making her way through, seeing her patience had worn thin, making Korra smile, especially how her golden eyes lit up, seeing her Appa plush, hugging Mako, and thanking him. As Mako disclosed the truth on how the plush doll was found, Korra was found with a hug, which softened her heart, from her own daughter. She hugged her back, cherishing the moment, missing her family already. “You’re welcome Jin. I knew you’d want that back.”
Hong Li could only be happy to see Korra reunited with her daughter, but feeling a bit uncomfortable by her husband’s eyes on him, even though he looked apologetic for the things that happened. He remained silent, not wanting to give them away, knowing her husband was a top notch detective.
Korra watched as Mako, tried to have Jin say bye, knowing it was getting late. She heard him mention Bolin’s place or Air Temple Island, making her own heart race, especially thats where her and Hong Li were staying at the moment. It made her wonder where Jin would choose to go stay.
He had told this lady that his wife died. It was brief he didn’t want to linger on the memory and make himself sad, he’s trying to get over that, he should do it not because he wants to forget his wife but because it’s healthy to go on. He has to do it for himself and for his little lady.
“I think I’ll go to Uncle Bo’s house, we built a fort yesterday” she brightly smiled at her father “Bye lady Korra, thank you” she waved goodbye and Mako glanced one last time, committing her image to memory. Hopefully it’ll be the last time they run into each other. She’s probably married to this guy and Mako is but a stranger clutching on to the past of someone he loved and desired. This woman is her own person, not a substitute.
“Then Uncle Bo’s it is” he took Jin’s hand and walked back into the car. He was buckling Jin up when she said something strange “Dad…” she almost whispered “…I think she was really pretty, I wouldn’t have mind if you took her on a date”
His eyes slightly widened and he chuckled “No can do kiddo, I mean yeah she was pretty but I think she was married…besides I am going on a date…with Saki” her pout was almost instant at the mention, but she didn’t say nothing.
He ignited the engine once again and drove, it was a silent ride. He glanced through the rear view mirror now and then and she was quiet, unlike her but she seemed to be deep in thought, which prompted him to ask.
“What’s wrong Jinny? Tired…hungry?” he asked her he noticed her look at him.
“I’m okay…I just wanted to say I changed my mind…I want to go see grandpa Tenzin” he’s not sure why she changed her mind but maybe it’ll do her good. She seemed to have a lot of things going on her mind and she’s just five, it worried him.
“O..kay, I’ll take you there, I’ll pick you up when I get out of work”
“Okay…” it’s all she said and he didn’t want to press her with questions but he bets it has to do with the encounter with that woman, it somehow impacted her, he knows because it happened to him too.
She could feel the weight of his gaze was transfixed on her, making her a bit self-conscious. Korra kept her cool, nodding her head. “I’m Korra. You don’t believe me? From the look of things, you must be an officer.” She eyed his uniform, remembering he was a high ranking detective now, very established in the force. Beifong had kept her informed of his accomplishments, making her proud of him.
Korra saw his line of sight, as Jin had stood at them, looking a bit confused. She smiled at Jin, waving at her, then turned her attention back on to Mako, who had thanked her. “You’re welcome. I can see this is something she values. Its rare to get one of these around here too. “So officer anything else you’d like to question me on? I hope I didn’t do anything wrong?” She teased, trying to lighten things, up, suddenly feeling the tension, especially with Hong Li standing right next to her.
"I’m sorry…this has to be a joke…my late wife’s name was Korra…and you…well..you…" he brushed the back of his nape, awkwardly holding the Appa plush with the other hand "You…look a lot like her" he swallowed, he’s never been so open with a person he just met.
She pointed out that he must be an officer and ne nodded, but he’s pretty sure it’s because the uniform gave him away. He’s not wearing his badge since he’s off duty now but it’s pretty recognizable. He still couldn’t believe someone else looked so much like her and shared her name as well.
“Yeah this stuffed old thing means a lot to her…it was her mother’s so…” he didn’t know why he kept on mentioning that, why he opened up so easily to conversation with this woman.
“Daddy what is taking so long?” his daughter had come near them \ noticing he was holding the Appa and smiled widely, her eyes brightened up it made him happy.
“You found it thank you, thank you…” she hugged her father and he handed it to her and she squeezed the non-existent breath out of it.
“Ehh…thanks Jinny but it wasn’t me…it was her” he told her with a smile and her golden gaze turned to lady Korra. Without hesitation she let go of Mako and wrapped her arms around her “Thank you miss Korra”
He could only observe, it mad his heart race, he was looking for his wife in this person, she shares her name she shares her face; it’s still very odd to him. His eyes turned to the man, Mako gave him an apologetic nod for all of this. He looks familiar too, but Mako can’t place it.
“Well Jin…say goodbye to the nice lady, it’s getting late and I have to go to work, I’ll take you to Uncle Bo, unless you want to go to the Temple today?” he smiled waiting for his daughter to decide.
It did got to him, Bolin wants to help, he has the best intentions but sometimes (most times) he approaches them in a slightly odd way, and that’s where the conflicts comes in, he has a knack for getting into stupid situations.
Mako could only listen, what he was going to say isn’t particularly pleasant; though he is glad his brother is here alive and well. He couldn’t imagine it differently. Bolin is the only family he has left.
“Look…” he exhaled, he didn’t want to be too soft, terrified he might do something stupid once again, not that he would admit but he just had to keep the guard up. He didn’t want to keep Bolin under watch all the time either.
“You don’t have to thank me, I am glad you are safe” his hard expression softened a little, he loved his brother “I just want you to be careful, you are grown man and the only family I have left, you saw what Amon was capable of, it only gets worse from now on, it seems like he has a lot under his sleeve”
The young earthbender nodded sheepishly.
"Yeah… that guy’s a nasty dude… I couldn’t even look at him without getting scared…” he shifted on his feet a bit, too embarrassed to admit to his older brother that the reason he had come down wasn’t just to apologize, but for comfort. He could close his eyes without seeing that eerie mask, and as always, when he was terrified, he ran to Mako, as if the older boy had all the answers.
"I did something really stupid today…." he murmured. "But I’m just glad to be back here… id rather have you mad at me for the rest of my life if it meant I didn’t have to see Amon again…" he eyed the couch, not wanting to sleep in his room alone where he could feel the chi-blockers attacks haunting him over and over.
"I love you, bro." he nearly whispered, smiling a little as he remembered all of the frigid winter nights on the streets, where no matter how scared of upset he was, his brother was there. Mako wouldn’t ever leave him behind.
He heard his brother’s careful words; Mako knew this was because he was sorry about all that happened could have taken his life. After all, the Triads never did forgive them for leaving and it had been sheer luck. Nobody leaves the triads; they all end up in jail or worse.
“Hopefully you won’t see him again…” Mako told him, but he seriously had doubts about that. Amon is on the rise, lately his campaigns have been louder and more visible and he thinks it has to do with Avatar Korra.
‘Don’t mull over it, but you have to be careful from now on this Amon guy is going to be around for a while…I can feel it”
One thing that did got to him was how his brother wouldn’t get angry at him for these things. He understood, Mako knows he can be harsh sometimes but not Bolin, he holds no grudges.
Mako got off the ledge and stood in front of his brother “I love you too bro” he returned a little smile, Bo is the only family he has left and he would go to the end of the earth to keep it safe.
Korra held the old, plush Appa doll, looking at it fondly, remembering she had given it to her daughter when, just a baby. Mako had chuckled, stating Jin was too young to even play with the thing, but it didn’t matter. She knew Jin would grow to love this thing, especially now, having being gone for five years.
"Let’s go ahead and drop this off to Beifong, so she can give this back to my daughter. I would go return it myself, but that would arouse suspicion and I’m not ready to expose myself out in the open yet. We need to find out where these Red Lotus agents sprung from and put a stop to their plans."
Hong Li nodded and agreed with her plan, taking her hand, and resuming their disguises, as a couple wandering the city. They were going to head toward police headquarters, when she stopped in her tracks, feeling someone’s hand touch her shouldler, making her tense up, hearing the voice call her name.
She slowly turned around, seeing her confused husband looking at her with curiosity. Korra had to find her cool, not letting her emotions control her. “Yeah? I…..um..” She still held the Appa plush in her hands, placing it in his arms. “Here. I found this. Jin might want this back. I was just heading over to the station to turn it in.”
“Is that your name?” he asked her as his eyes subtly studied her. He couldn’t believe how much this lady looks like his deceased wife, it has to be some sort of sick joke of the universe to share the same name as well.
“I mean…that’s what my daughter told me you told her and I…well…” now he was starting to feel like a fool. He got off the car to verify something that might be just a coincidence. He looked over the shoulder to see his little Jin staring in their direction, but she did as she was told and stood in place.
He had noticed that this lady was holding the Appa plush and handed it to him, saying that she found it and that Jin might want it back, which is true. He’s still too stunned and too curious.
“T-thanks” his eyes met hers for a second too long and a million things ran through his mind, her gaze is familiar, her eyes, she’ll haunt him. However he’s not unaware of the man standing next to her, this woman must be married or in a relationship with this man and he’s being disrespectful, drinking her in and robbing her attention. He has not forgotten he has to move on, in which Saki comes to mind, they had agreed on a second date.
I recently hit the 300 followers, and to honor that, I decided to do a Follow Forever. Before that, I’d like to say that it’s been so great to be part of this fandom, and all because of the amazing people that are a part of it. I love all my followers so far, if for some reason your blog does not appear here is not because I dislike it but because I forgot to mention it or I haven’t interacted with you. I’d like to take the opportunity to remark that I am a very shy person, so if I don’t approach your blog is because I am intimidated by your blog ( in other words: your rp skills. )
