The New Era
Doubled Elements: Book 2
The guards came in and out, until Lin got frustrated. "Why don't you ask our people, then?"
"What?" Korra asked.
"It could be any one of us," Lin shrugged.
"You don't trust us?" Aimi said loudly. "Are you asking me and Raiden to do this?"
I felt my face heat up. Aimi, shut the hell up.
"I'm asking everyone to take a seat, even my sister," Lin frowned.
"This is a waste of time," Korra exclaimed. "We could be looking for him right now."
"Trust me, there are people doing that," Lin said. "Now, Su, take a seat."
We were all clear. Mako, Suyin, Asami, Bolin, Lin . . . And then it was Aimi's turn. She sat down, looking startled. She wiped her clammy hands on her shirt. She was nervous like that; I understood.
"Where were you last night?" Aiwei asked.
"I was fighting against the Red Lotus members, like everyone else."
Aiwei's eyes narrowed. He leaned closer. "Did you tell Zaheer of the Avatar's whereabouts?"
"No, I didn't," she said.
"Did you give the Avatar's whereabouts away?" Aiwei repeated.
"No!" Aimi yelled, her eyes bright with fury. "I just got here!"
"She's lying," Aiwei stood up. I shook my head, furrowing my eyebrows. Aimi? She couldn't have. She never had the time . . .
Suyin's mouth fell open in shock. "How could you do this to us?"
"I didn't!" She stood up. "I swear I didn't."
Suyin walked up to her. "You stayed here. You became friends with my daughter, and then gave away the Avatar? For what?" Aimi shrunk back, frozen in fear.
(I own none of the original Legend of Korra or Avatar the last Airbender characters. I do, however, own many of the new ones like Aimi, Raiden, Reika, Eris, Erin, and more to come :))
