Title: It's Getting To The Point
Author: beckingham
Word Count: 127
Warning: None.
Challenge: #145: Brittle

At fifteen he breaks his arm. He refuses to rest in his search for the Avatar despite it, and though it heals just fine, he still feels a slight ache in the bone every time a storm comes.

(It takes him two years to recognize it as a warning.)

His uncle tells him to loosen up, let it all flow through you instead of making yourself a wall.

After the war, he’ll sometimes practice bending stances at Katara’s side, mirroring her with an almost content smile on his face.

At fifteen he is stiff and unbending, calls himself strong and breaks.

At nineteen he just rubs his arm and moves the practice inside, and listens to the storm outside that is no longer in him.
