Summary: Zuko reflects on his encounter with a water tribe girl.
A/N: This is my first Zue fic, so any feedback would be wonderful because I would love to explore this pair more.

Zuko reflected on his choices, his past sacrifices and if they were worth it. It didn’t seem to be working out very well right then. The Avatar refused his help and the Avatara’s friends looked like they would have been more than happy if they never saw him again. But he had made the choices he did and he no longer had a home to return to. Camping above the Western Air Temple he felt like he didn’t have a single friend in the whole world.

After a few moments of reflection, his thoughts found themselves wondering to a particular Water Tribe girl he briefly met during his time at the Northern Water Tribe. They had bumped into each by chance; she seemed to desperately want someone to talk to for some strange reason.

Zuko didn’t want to indulge the girl, he didn’t have the time or interest, but he realized that she appeared to be of noble blood and it would make him stand out more if he ignored her. She probably knew where the Avatar was staying too, if she was in the loop. So he listened to her and was surprised that all she was interested in talking of was a sacrifice she knew she would have to make for her people.

Zuko silently wondered how she fared after the Siege of the North. He wondered if she sacrificed her desires for her people’s sake. He started to feel guilty for not realizing that others also made sacrifices for their people.

As Zuko’s mind was filled with thoughts of that girl and the position of royalty, he thought he felt a hand touching his shoulder. He turned around to see whose it was but there was no one there. He then he glanced at the moon; it seemed to be dancing in the crisp night sky. He was mesmerized by its graceful movements for a few hours. It eased his mind and Zuko didn’t regret his choices anymore.

Sun & Moon

In this world so full of fear.
Full of rage and lies.
I can see the truth so clear.
In your eyes, so dry your eyes.
