It would be very appreciated,thanks.
She played off being happy about him cooking, but the healer’s words about him drugging her food made her sick to her stomach. Korra would have to be clever and take on the right medicine before consuming Kai’s food. There were still some slight headaches, but not as terrible as before. The healer’s remedy was helping, giving her back energy, but she didn’t want Kai to be on to her about being well. She needed to investigate him more, wanting the truth, as Mako claimed to be her husband, given they had a child together, seeing her memories had been all jumbled up because of Kai.
Korra had a plan of sorts, knowing Kai would leave the same time as always to head over to the United Forces, giving her time to seek out Mako. He could help her sort out what was really going on, granted the pictures of them together was a clue of things and the healer really put things in perspective.
Kai saw her walking forward without hesitation, agreeing to eat his food and he smiled. Good, just as he planned.
"Great" he filled in a plate for her and one for himself, he wouldn’t eat it but at least pretend he would. He poured the noodle soup into a bowl and handed it to her.
"Sit on the table I’ll join you soon" he watched her with intent as she walked into the table. He had to figure out if the healer could tell him about the effects on the medicine he’s been giving her,he would boldly dare after all, he has control over many things, even the safety of his family and that’s why the healer needed to cooperate with him.
Morning came too soon, but maybe it is because he hasn’t been able to sleep well. All the things going on just don’t let him sleep. He thought about calling to Air Temple Island and give them news about Korra’s safety but he didn’t because that’s yet to be seen.
He hasn’t seen her since yesterday and it worried him to not know what has been happening with her. Korra told him she’ll contact him but it hasn’t happened so far.
He got up from the bed and started to boil water in a kettle for some tea and he yawned. He decided he would definately seek her out today, find out himself why it has taken her so long and he let the water boil as he sleepily walked into the bathroom to brush his teeth. She has to be alright, she must have realized something and a terrible thought crossed his mind when he thought that ai could have caught onto her.
He shook his head and placed his toothbrush in the holder. She has to be fine, she told him she’ll be, if not, he promised he would make Kai pay for it.
Korra hated that Kai wouldn’t let up, feeling him follow her. “I’ll get something to eat later.” She feigned a yawn, showing her tiredness, not wanting him to know that she was aware of his lies by the way he answered her questions. The healer’s caution haunted her mind of not trusting the food given by Kai but the medicine would help her block out the affects of the poison laced within the food. She would keep that in mind if Kai was still persistent in giving her food.
It seemed that Kai had finally let up, later evening, giving her a chance to rest. She had rose from her nap and found him at the stove preparing food, making her frown on the inside, seeing that he still wanted her to eat, almost like he was awaiting for her to wake up. “Kai, you’re still up? You know I could have helped myself to something to eat. I can cook you know that.”
He observed as she went to bed and he went out of the room, closing the door with some force to showcase his anger for her attitude towards him. Still he decided she would eat the food he prepares for her, he has to find a way to keep her medicated without making her question anything, so far she hasn’t done it, besides the inquire about the results but he thought she was just being stubborn.
While she slept, he dialed the number to the healer’s office to find out no one picked up, he figured that maybe since it was past afternoon there is nobody there to answer the phone for him.
He considered going to bed and sleep beside her, but he didn’t want to sleep, he just wanted to be close to her, touch her skin, but there wasn’t any fun in that if she was asleep.
He thought about leaving for a while, find some girl willing to sleep with him given his ‘girlfriend’ has been avoiding him, but then he decided against it knowing Korra would wake up later and find herself alone.
After lounging in the sofa by himself for a while, he decided to start cooking the food and to his surprise, twenty minutes later, Korra walks out from the room. Night has started to fall and he knew she had to eat before going to bed once again.
"it’s no trouble really, I like cooking for you" he said a bit enthusiastically even though she looked annoyed. he didn’t care, things here are done on his terms
"Don’t they smell good? you like these" he brought the skillet forward to show her what he had prepared, hoping this time she will eat it so the effect of the medicine he’s given her goes uninterrupted.
Korra frowned as she tried to get away and rest as he still persistently wanted her to remain with him. At the healer’s suggestion to make sure she continues to take the medication given to help her overcome the headaches and block whatever Kai was putting in her food.
She heard him state that he made noodles and would bring it to her. “Kai, I’m tired and my headaches are still hurting me. I’ll just take some of your noodles later.” Korra stated, not wanting to talk about anything else for the day, knowing he was lying through his words.
He frowned right back at her when she lashed at him about her tiredness. He didn’t want this side effect to begin with, all he wanted was for her to forget her husband and her child and love him instead. He wanted her so much he went through many loops just to get to her and ever since they got back together she hasn’t even deliberately kissed him, it all has been prompted by him.
”Don’t say that Korra, you need to eat something if you want to get better” he pointed to her as she walked towards their room. He followed close by “I mean it, I’ll order something else if you don’t want the noodles but just skipping it all together isn’t any good” he was persistent because it was a means to an end. He wouldn’t want control to slip by him.
Mako on the other hand had made a timeline map in the course of an hour. He had connected the events from the boat, to the abduction of Izumi, the ransom call and then the abduction of Korra.
It all made sense to him now, Kai set it all up to get Korra. Izumi was never the target all he wanted was a distraction because he’d know Korra would do anything for the one’s she loves. It angered him that right now at the very moment, Kai had gotten away with his plans. That Korra was there with him because everything ran smoothly. The only light Mako could see was Korra’s promise to return but even then, he feared Kai would be cunning enough to keep her within reach and sedated. He just knew he had to keep alert in case things go wrong.
