A/N: I am posting these in the order that I wrote them. This means that they are NOT IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. This is a side project and therefore it might never be complete. I don't plan on any of them (the stories) being very long at all. Each story is from the POV of one or both of the sisters.
Asha was five when she first bent fire, Soon soon followed, bending water three weeks later. Their parents had been excited, their small tribe had celebrated. There had been dancing and merriment, the two girls had danced together, fire and water entwined. It was a sign, the masters had said, of great balance and great promise. A year later Asha bent earth, her sister bent air. That’s when people started to talk. There was no celebration, only shunning. There was only one Avatar, there could only be one Avatar, so how could these two children bend two elements? Abominations they were called. Most children would have shrunk from the catcalls but Soon and Asha had always only needed each other. So they grew, they blossomed, the world had taught them soiltude, this was the only fact they knew.
They were ten when the bloodbenders attacked their home. Ten and forced to flee, a kiss from mother on both their cheeks, sending them away on their family’s two direwolves. The houses burning behind them.
