i did once you pointed it out, i went back and read it in this voice, yes.
Okay! here we go!
Winter was cold in republic city, but Asami really didn’t have to worry about that in The Fire Nation. Specifically The Royal Palace for the Royal Family of the Fire Nation. Being with Iroh, he wanted to take her to his home for the holiday season, which she happily obliged.
She saw many wonderful things throughout the city capitol. Statues of Firelord Zuko, fountains that shot fire instead of water, street acts, and her favorite thing, The Palace.
The Place was huge. Filled with historical treasures, dragon sculptures, a wall with every previous Firelord hanging from it, and the throne room, where Iroh’s mother sat, proud and full of confidence.
But the thing she liked most was the hot tub.
Specifically with Iroh in it. He made it more steamy
“Can I get you anything Madame?” An attendant of Iroh asked to Asami.
“Oh, no thank you, i’m fine.” She smiled at him while he turned to face Iroh.
“What about you, sir?”
“Oh no, i’m fine Shou… Actually, there’s one thing you can do for me.” Iroh said to his attendant.
“And that would be, sir?”
Iroh smiled at Shou. “Go home, go be with your family, it’s the holiday season, go spend it with the people you love.”
The attendant, without breaking a sweat, bowed at Iroh, and then to Asami.
“As you wish, sir.” And with that, he left.
Iroh moved closer to Asami, the water beating against him as he went.
“I know I will.” Iroh mumbled underneath his breath.
“What was that?” Asami asked.
“Nothing, nothing.” he said as he settled down, putting an arm around her. “Asami, do you want to see something amazing?” He asked to her. with her curiousity getting the best of her, she agreed.
“Alright, but you’ll have to close your eyes.” She cautiously sealed her eyes, noticing how she could hear something that sounded like wind blowing. A few moments later and Iroh spoke again.
“Okay, open them.”
She opened her eyes and the first thing she saw was the water in front of her seemed to be sparkling. Joltingly, she looked around, noticing that all the lights went out. Looking up, she saw how the stars above them were shining through the window above the hot tub, the glass amplifying their sheen onto the water, and onto the both of them.
“My grandfather would always star up at the stars with me on the roof of the palace when I was little. He would point out constellations and show me shooting stars. He’s pretty cool, for almost being 90.”
“Wow Iroh, this is so, gorgeous, it’s just… breathtaking.” Asami managed to sigh out.
“I’m glad you like them, but all the stars in the universe couldn’t amount to your beauty” Iroh said kissing her cheek. Asami blushed, splashing water at him.
“Stop it, you’re too kind.” she said, recovering from her stupor.
“If it’s the truth, why do I need to stop?” He questioned.
Asami smiled at him, as she looked up at the stars. But the moment was short lived, as his hand soon grabbed her face, turning her head towards him. He looked her straight in the air, and without missing a beat he said
“I love you, Asami Sato.” and proceeded to kiss her. Only stopping once Asami splashed him again.
Yeah, Asami’s favorite part of The Fire Nation was the hot tub, in The Palace, in The Royal City, with him.
