Chapter 13: Wars End, A New Beginning
When I woke up, I nearly screamed in pain. White light seared me in burning agony. "Zuron," Katara said softly. I opened my eyes. Katara was sitting by my bedside. More amazingly, Zuko was there as well.
"Zuron, Katara and myself became very close while you were out. Zuron, we are thinking of getting married. We are wondering. You and Keisha both have no parents. Would you like us to adopt you both?" Zuko asked.
I stared openmouthed at them. "Wh…What?" I stammered. "You…You want to adopt us?" I asked.
"Yes, Zuron. We love you and Keisha as if you were our children by blood," Katara said.
I looked toward Zuko and Katara with tears in my eyes. Katara took me by my shoulders and held on to me. "I….I'd like that. I'd like you both to care for us," I said. Zuko and Katara smiled and pulled me into a hug. I shed tears of joy for the new life that I was about to embark on. A new life after an old war. Who knew that peace was possible? Who knew? Perhaps there's hope for the world after all.
