Bittersweet"So she just left?" asked Mai, eyes narrowing, who still found Princess Ursa's mysterious flight hard to believe.Bittersweet by FreyaTheElf
"Yeah." Azula answered with a shrug.
"But where did she go?" Ty Lee's expression was a mixture of concern and confusion.
"I told you, nobody knows." Azula snapped irritably. "And dad won't tell me." she added quietly. Her tone was bitter.
The three girls were sitting on Azula's four poster bed; Azula leaning against the post at the left corner of the foot of the bed, Mai close to the headboard and Ty Lee cross-legged between them.
Azula followed Mai's gaze. She was looking out of the large window to the palace gardens, where a morose-looking Zuko was feeding the turtle ducks with chunks of bread.
"He's been this way since he found out she left." said Azula indifferently. "If he keeps on like that, the Fire Nation's bread supplies will run out. Either that or the turtle ducks will die from being overfed." She said the last words with a hint of a smile that vanish

"What are you doing out of prison?" barked Azula after several long moments.
"What happened to you?" cried Ty Lee, her eyes wide, shocked at the sight of Azula, of what she had become. The next moment genuine concern was written all over her face. She started hesitantly towards Azula, which was, as proven later, a very unwise thing to do. Ty Lee broke into a run.
"Ty Lee! Get back here, she's dangerous!" shouted Mai.
Everything happened in seconds. Ty Lee halted in the middle of the courtyard, realizing what she was doing, seeing Azula's nasty grin, her madness dancing in her eyes. But it was too late.
Blue flames shot out of Azula's extended bloody hand. She was now half-standing up, as her left hand was still chained on the ground. Azula had been targeting Ty Lee's chest, but missed. Nevertheless, Ty Lee screamed. When the flames had vanished, Azula saw her former friend on her knees, clutching her arm.
Mai dashed forwards, seized her and dragged her out of Azula's range.

Draco was sitting beside the lake, furiously throwing stones in it. He had already told Crabbe and Goyle to scat. Blood was dripping from his broken nose thanks to the Granger girl. That mudblood had punched him! And then threatened him with her wand! Why hadn't the Basilisk killed her the previous year? He immediately regretted thinking that. He smashed the piece of bark he was holding as if a destructive action would make him feel better.
"Does it hurt?"
Draco turned his head and saw Hermione kneeling beside him. What did she want with him now?
"Scram Granger." he snapped.
She took out her wand. Draco was about to say something very rude, but she was faster.
He flounced due to the sudden pain in his nose. "What the hell-" but as he touched it he realised it had been fixed. He merely stared at her, bemused.
"This doesn't mean I regret punching you. You deserved it." she said coolly.
"Then why did you fix my nose?"
She didn't bother answering him. Draco's eyes widen
