Aang and Katara reflect on what everyone will do now that the world is once again in peace...
Book 3 Epilogue: The Sunset
Aang sipped his tea calmly and petted Momo, who had curled up on his lap. He looked out at the sun, which was just beginning to set over the vast horizon of ocean. The view was breathtaking...
"Something wrong?" Katara asked. She sat up and scooted over to him as Appa gave a mighty groan. The bison descended and landed with a splash in the waters of the Eastern Earth Kingdom. Aang and Katara smiled at each other and clasped hands as they watched the setting sun fill the sky with a vast spectrum of colors.
"No," Aang said. "Everything is perfect." He smiled. "Just thinking."
"About what?" Katara asked him, laying her head on his shoulder.
"About what we'll do now. Now that the world is in peace again."
"What will we do?" she asked.
"Now...we'll wait," he replied.
"For the next time the world needs us." He sat up a little straighter. "The Spirits have set out to rebuild the Spirit World, and Azula is locked up without her bending just like she had always deserved. The world is in peaceful times again. Everything is in balance the way it should be."
Katara raised her head up off of Aang's shoulder and gazed into his eyes. "Sokka and Suki went back to Kyoshi Island, which means we probably won't see them for a while," she said, taking hold of her mother's necklace and twiddling it between her fingers.
"And Toph is busy with her new Earthbending Academy, so we probably won't be seeing much of her either."
"And with Zuko busy as Fire Lord and Mai and Ty Lee helping rebuild the Fire Nation, I think it's safe to say that we'll be alone for a while."
"Is that bad?" Aang asked.
They embraced for a moment before turning to face the sunset again. By now, the sun had begun to dip below the horizon, and the light was nearly blinding. They shielded their eyes from the brilliant light and laid down on Appa together. The bison groaned again and sank a little deeper into the ocean, blowing bubbles into the water with its nose.
Aang stroked Katara's hair fondly and she closed her eyes. It was beginning to get cold, so he got a blanket out of their pack and laid it over them. By the time the sun had completely set, both of them were fast asleep...
Just a short epilogue to wrap up the characters, nothing major...but now it really IS over! D:
