Hearing Ty Lee yelp startled her. She was confused when the girl pulled away and put distance between them. Azula then noticed the burn marks on her girlfriend’s wrists. “Ty… Ty Lee, I’m…”
She was at a loss of words. Slowly she reached out to touch Ty Lee’s hands again, but pulled them back and clenched her fists. “Ty… I don’t know how it happened. I didn’t know I was… I’m sorry.”
Ty Lee closed her eyes tightly and strayed away from the other girl, looking at her as if she were a stranger.
“Please don’t,” she whimpered when Azula reached for her burned wrists. The skin around her delicate wrists was red, and raw. It still burned. “It’s okay,” Ty Lee looked at Azula and tried to smile, but she figured she looked rather pathetic trying to hide her pain. “It’s not that bad, I promise,” she assured the princess, though she knew she would need serum or else the marks would create ugly scars.
She continued to distance herself from Azula, scooting closer towards the rock and further from the princess. Ty Lee could see in Azula’s eyes that she hadn’t meant to burn her, but for some reason the Kyoshi warrior was afraid anyways.
“I’m sorry,” Ty Lee apologized. For Azula to burn her that must’ve meant that she was angry, and that meant that Ty Lee had upset her princess. “I-I hope I didn’t upset you. If I did I’m sorry Azula!”
Azula felt her heart drop to her stomach. “What do you mean it’s not that bad? Ty Lee, it’s practically raw!” When she tried reaching for Ty Lee again, but the other girl scooted away from her.
She looked down at her palms as Ty Lee kept scooting away from her. She couldn’t imagine what triggered her to unconsciously firebend. “Ty Lee, you didn’t upset me. I don’t know why I firebended.”
Slowly she scooted closer to the warrior. She stared at Ty Lee’s burned wrists and flinched seeing how bad the burns were. “Would you please let me look at it?” Azula reached for her girlfriend’s hand.
