Week #5: Entry #1  
"I care for her too much." Those words echoed in Aang's head everytime he saw Katara's face. "If my destiny ever caused her any pain, I don't know what I would do."

It was late at night, and Aang was the only one awake. He was sitting up, watching Katara sleep, because he could not sleep himself. Everytime he slept, he pictured what had happened in the Crystal Catacombs under Ba Sing Se. He pictured himself getting shot with lightning, and after every nightmare, he thought to himself "What if that was her. What if Katara was the one Azula had decided to kill. What would I have done?"

What would he have done? Give up? Run away again?

By being with her, I only put her at risk...I put everyone at risk. I care for her too much...she shouldn't have to deal with this. Upon her...lies my heart. I love her, and she has to carry the burden of my love.

Aang laid back down, he turned and faced Katara.

My heart is a heavy burden for her to be carrying...so maybe she shouldn't carry it at all.
