This is my first and only Avatar fanfic!
It's Tokka, and has two parts, one from Sokka's POV, and then again from Toph's POV. I posted this on KF also, so sorry if you're seeing it twice XD
I don't know why it took me so long to see it. She was right there, right beside me, for so long, and yet I never knew.
Or maybe...I did know. I thought I'd seen hints, I just didn't want to accept it. And this time, I was just so caught up in having Suki back, that I just...pushed it out of my mind.
But when...when I lost Suki...to Azula, during the comet, there she was. She took my hand in her little one so softly, while I cried, as we laid her to rest. She didn't say a word. She just stood there, and let me cry.
Later that night, I woke up after a few hours of fitful sleep, and noticed my chest felt heavier than normal. I lifted my head and saw her, curled up next to me, her head on my chest, sound asleep. I had no idea how long she had been there.
It hit me then, the realization that she loved me, and that she always had. I realized then that I loved her too.
And I thought Toph was the one that was blind.
I don't know why it took him so long to see it. I was right there, right with him for so long, and he still didn't get it. Obliviousness must run in the family.
Sometimes, I really thought he knew. But then, when Suki broke out of prison and found us, it's like he just forgot about me. I don't blame him though. If I went a long time without seeing (well, I can't see, but you get the point) someone I cared about, I'd be really excited too.
His excitement didn't last long, though. When the comet came...Suki...was lost. To Azula. I heard him crying at her funeral, and I just couldn't take it. He was so upset. I wanted to go talk to him, but I just didn't know what to say. So instead, I just stood beside him. I felt that wasn't enough, though, so...I...held his hand. I wasn't sure how he would react, but he seemed to appreciate it. He gripped my hand too. I stayed by him while he cried, and I know he was thankful.
That night, I couldn't sleep. I could hear him, tossing and turning. I wondered if I could help him feel better again, so I decided to go sit by him. I held his hand again for awhile, and that seemed to help. He stopped tossing around and finally slept. I guess I must have gotten tired too, and I fell asleep right there next to him, with my head on his chest.
He woke up a few hours later, and realized I was sleeping on him. His stirring woke me too, but I didn't move. I wanted to see what he would do. But he didn't do anything. He just went back to sleep. But I could tell he finally realized it. He realized that I loved him. And I know he loves me now too. I could hear it in his heart.
And I thought I was supposed to be the blind one.
Thanks for reading! Comments are <3
