I thought you changed!

I have!

Like hell. He'd sided with his crazy sister against them, despite all common sense. Despite everything they'd said to each other. Despite every possible human connection the two of them had made in that cave, he threw it away in a blast of fire for that psychotic bitch he still dared to call family.

He wasn't the only one who had ever done so. Who had gained her trust only to turn around and shatter it to pieces behind her back. Who had hurt her and used her and betrayed her because she was dumb enough to give him the benefit of the doubt, then turned around and begged for mercy.

But she'd learned her lesson this time.

Katara! I've changed!

The last boy to utter those words to her, after he'd done far more than Zuko ever had to make her feel like a cheap tool. She'd threatened him as well. Hated him with every fiber of her being and the burning passion of a hundred Comets. Knew she would never give him the mercy he asked for, because there was no one else on earth more undeserving.

Until he lay before her underneath Lake Laogai. Broken and bleeding and dying. For them. For her.

She felt her eyes sting as she watched Zuko put on a kettle for tea. Despite her threat to the contrary, she hoped in the darkest part of her heart that he would betray them. If he was going to die, she would rather he die fighting them than defending.

At least then, she would have no regrets.
