Comfort Part 3
3 Years Later….
Nightmares once again plaguing the mind of the former Great Uniter for the first time since she was a little girl. Memories of her war, faces of the people who have died during her bloody campaign to unite the Earth Kingdom continue to haunt her.
Her eyes open with blinding speed and she looks around at her surroundings, the familiarity of Air Temple Island settling in. Korra looks at the body sleeping peacefully next to her… Asami, CEO of Future Industries… now victim of Kuvira’s war. Sighing, she slowly gets out of bed not to disturb her lover and proceeded to put on some clothes. She finds her glider and steps outside into the night, her heart and brain working at completely different frequencies.
Kuvira sits up in her bed and looks at the unwelcoming platinum walls “decorating” her jail cell. A single tear rolling down her cheek, she just asks herself “Why…”. She had started a war to avoid this very result, being alone… but this time with nobody there to hold her and tell her it’s ok. No Suyin, no Bataar, no Korra…. no one but Kuvira and her thoughts, and eventually her nightmares. She then contemplates her next course of action, to either sit there thinking about her thoughts or go back to sleep and risk being susceptible to bad dreams once again. The yawn escaping her body told her the answer, so she lays back down and hopes she can make it through the night.
Her hope was to no avail, once again she is tossing and turning in bed drowning in her nightmares once more. When she awakened, her body felt warm arms wrapped around her waist. The feeling of someone singing into her ear sent a subtle shiver down her body
“You gotta show them, that you can keep going
You gotta keep going, you gotta keep going”
She turned around to see a pair of bright blue eyes staring back at her.
So…. do I keep going or nah?? :)
