Okay, this sounds cute!
“Korra, I was wondering if we could do an activity together later tonight… just like… the two of us… maybe?” The 18 year old earthbender seemed flustered on his words, quite unlike his normal self.
Korra turned around to face him, her hair still wet from her shower after practice. They opened the gym and arena up again about a year ago, but Bolin, Korra and Mako didn’t care to play anymore. Nevertheless, they still trained upstairs.
“Sure thing, Bolin! Sounds like fun!” She said in a cheery voice. A bit too cheery for Bolin to believe she got what he was asking.
“No, I mean, like a date. I mean, we had one back in the day, and it was fun, so why not another one?” Bolin didn’t know why he was getting so embarrassed over what he was asking.
Korra’s head looked down in a puzzling look, and Bolin let out a sigh, figuring he was about to be rejected. Before he had the chance to say anything else to her, her head came back up.
“I’d still love too!AirbenderIslandis getting a bit crowded for my taste anyway.” She laughed at him while on her way to the door.
“I’ll meet you outside the arena at six, okay?” She turned back to look at him.
“Uh, yeah! Six sounds great!” Bolin perked up to say. Smiling back at him, Korra left the gym, while Bolin was doing a victory dance.
Six o’clock rolled around rather fast for Bolin. He made sure to pick up flowers before meeting her, also spritzing himself with a bit of cologne.
Seeing as there was a match tonight, plenty of people we’re around the arena, but neither Korra nor Bolin cared to watch it.
Bolin kept trying to find her, but no matter how hard he looked, he couldn’t seem to spot her. It wasn’t until she tapped his shoulder that he had found her, or more, she found him.
Bolin turned around to face her and immediately began to blush. Her hair was completely down, wavy and beautiful. Her dress was simply and plain, with multiple shades of blue, but to him, he wouldn’t want her in anything else. It made him realize that his attire probably wasn’t to scale of hers, but by the look on her face, she didn’t care.
“Well, you sure do clean up nice.” She said while smiling at his flustered face.
Quickly re-composing himself, he offered her the flowers.
“Well, these are lovely Bolin.” She said while taking them. “I just have to put them up really quick, and then we can go.” She said while leading both of them off the stairs, towards a not-so-shady alleyway, where, not to Bolin’s surprise, Naga was. Korra casually walked up to her and sat the flowers next to Naga. Naga sniffed them, and opened her mouth to take a bite of them.
“Naga, no.” Korra said, stopping her in mid chomp. “Those are from Bolin, you like him, right? Anyway, they’re not for eating.” Naga lowers her head down in the opposite direction of the bouquet. “Good girl, Naga.” Korra praised as she leaned down to puck a single flower from the bunch, putting it in her hair.
“There, now we can go!” Now, what did you have in mind for us to do?”
“Well, I have something planned, come with me.” Bolin took Korra’s hand. A bold move for him, but it was well rewarded, because she grabbed his back, lacing her fingers in his.
The sun was beginning to set when they arrived on the shore next to the bay. Bolin made Korra turn around for the next part. She could hear him pulling a tarp oar cover off of something.
“Okay, you can turn around now.” He said, and Korra did just that and was looking at a little boat, big enough for two, with Bolin standing near it.
“Bolin, we aren’t going out on the water, are we?” She asked cautiously.
“Of course we are! What else would you do with a boat?” Bolin gestured towards her to get in.
“Well, if you’re sure about this.” She said as she made her way towards the little boat.
“Sure, I’m sure!” He said while helping her into her seat, then getting into his.
Korra wouldn’t tell him for years to come that she made it easier on him while he was rowing them threw the water, by using her bending. She was too intrigued by his face that just screamed confidence.
He took the oar out of the water and looked at her.
“Well, here we are!” He said. Korra furrowed her eyebrow a little, and Bolin must have seen it.
“Well, this isn’t the best part, you have to turn around.” Korra suspiciously turned her body to look behind her to see the sun casting all different shades of red, purple, pinks and oranges all over the city silhouette.
“Oh my, that’s just… beautiful…” She could have sworn that Bolin had mumbled “Not as beautiful as you.” Under his breath, but she brushed it off.
It was a breathtaking view that she wished would last forever.
However, time continued to move on. As with it, so did the sun. Korra watched the stars come into view above the city, which was pretty, but not as pretty as it was five minutes ago.
“Mako and I would watch the stars go up from the pier whenever we lived on the streets.” Korra turned around to face Bolin, ignoring the change that had happened between then on the boat.
“No matter how rough of a day that happened, we would sit there and watch the sun set and it just made the day, I don’t know, better. It seemed to make us warmer during the winter too.”
Korra knew that Bolin didn’t like talking about his days on the streets, so it was something she always took note of whenever he did mention it.
“Anyway! Eat up!” Bolin gestured at the middle of the boat, where Korra noticed two bowls of noodles with a candle in between them. She smiled, grabbing the one closest to her. Without Bolin noticing, she heated hers up to a more hot temperature than they already were. She liked hers nice and steamy.
The rest of the evening was filled with feeding fish off the side of the boat, Bolin falling in, Korra laughing, Bolin pulling her in, and both of them laughing about the whole situation.
Situating themselves back onto the boat, Korra waterbended the water off of their clothes and hair, and back into the bay. Bolin began rowing the boat over to the pier. He noticed it was hared to steer the boat this time, but he just blamed it on him being tired.
Korra hadn’t realized how tired she was either. She fell asleep while Bolin was maneuvering the ship. The moving of the waves was calming, and the sound of the water reminded her of home.
Reaching the shore, Bolin was too scared to wake her up, so he, carefully, picked her up, bridal style and carried her back towards where Naga was.
Korra woke up from her slumber when Bolin placed her on top of Naga’s back. She raised her head to see Bolin walking off in the distance.
“Bo, wait.” She called out. He stopped and turned around to look at her.
“Oh, Korra, I didn’t mean to wake you up, sorry…” He said while scratching his head.
“No, no I’m glad you did.” She said while sliding off of Naga, meeting Bolin halfway.
“I really had a great time tonight, Bolin, I really did. Maybe we could do it again sometime soon?” Korra asked him.
“Soon, Yeah soon soon sounds good.” Bolin said, blushing. “But how soon is soon?” He added.
“Mmmm, now.” Korra said while lowering Bolin down by pulling oh his shirt and raising her up to meet him, kissing him on the cheek in the process.
“Was that soon enough for you?” She asked. Bolin stared at her for a few moments, his cheeks bright red.
“Yeah, that was nice.” He said. “So uh, see you tomorrow?” He asked her.
