“Do you have to?” Korra pleaded to Asami.
“Trust me. You’ll feel a lot better and I’m sure you’d look great with it.” Asami replied with a grin on her face, she couldn’t hold back her excitement.
“Why are you taking such pleasure in it? Do you like that better?” Korra again trying to weasel herself out of the situation, but Asami wouldn’t have it.
“No, not necessarily, but I think it’s time for the world to see a more mature and powerful Avatar.”
“I don’t think me getting hair cut will make me more powerful.”
“Not only that, but a new wardrobe will help too.” Asami grinned at the thought of getting Korra new outfits.
“There’s nothing wrong with—“
“Alright fine.” Asami knew that fight would never ended. “But how about just for this trip? I don’t expect us to do any fighting when we’re away. Please?”
Korra didn’t want to upset Asami, nor did she want to keep this going. Defeated, she sighed. “Ok. Fine. But just for this trip.”
“You won’t regret it! Now…,” Asami stood up, “Let’s get your hair done.”
”I do know how to cut hair.” Asami responded confidently. She grabbed Korra’s hand and leaded her to the bathroom and sat her down on a chair that was facing the sink.
“You prepared for this?” Korra looked back at her in shock and slight horror.
“I always like to be ready for everything. Now, are you ready?”
“Too late.” Asami teased, and without delay she began her work.
Korra sat there taking it all with her eyes closed, she figured it would be a good time to meditate as well.
Some time has passed before Korra said anything, she was enjoying the massaging of her hair, the sound of the scissors and clippers. It was all very relaxing and soothing. “So what makes you so confident I’d look better with shorter hair?” She finally asked.
“I experimented a couple years ago. I thought I looked better with shorter hair for a while, but one time I let it grow out and I’ve kept it long ever since.”
Korra opened her eyes and her eyes widened, the sheer amount of hair gone was enough to get be shocked. She hasn’t had this short amount of hair since she was a child.
“What do you think?” Asami asked with a cheerful grin.
“It different, but I do like it.” Korra returned the smile.
Asami gave her a hug from behind, “This is a good change for you. And…,” her smile turned into a slight mischievous one, “You do look more…powerful.” She added with tracing her finger along Korra’s head to chest and a raised eyebrow.
