Zutara Week 2012 Day Two: Momentous (An event of great importance or consequence, especially when considering the future.)

This day is an AU piece – Set in modern times, Katara and Zuko have been dating for several years and have decided to take the intimacy up a notch – but will it be good or bad?
Katara walked into the small apartment and she and Zuko were sharing. They had moved in together after Katara graduated high school. They were both attending Ba Sing Se University, and figured it might be easier to live together off campus that separately on campus.
She was nervous. Today was the day. Katara and Zuko had talked about this day for a long time. Today, Katara and Zuko where going to have sex. Deep breathes, Tara. Just…go change into something sexy. That’s what Suki said to do. Walking into her and Zuko’s bedroom, Katara knew exactly what she was going to wear. She pulled the red lacy bra and panties set from her underwear drawer and put them on after stripping down. She placed her dirty clothes in the hamper and then looked for something to wear over the under garments. Her tight fitting blue dress, with the plunging v-neck would work. She slid that on and walked to the bathroom. She brushed her hair, leaving the long, chocolate brown locks down – her hair loopies were the only pieces of hair that were up. Katara put on some of her favorite perfume and walked back to the bedroom. She waited by sitting on the bed.
Zuko arrived home, wondering where his girlfriend was. It was probably the most important day in their relationship so far – they were going to have sex! “Tara?” He called out. When he heard her voice reply “In here!” he followed the smell of her perfume and found her lay seductively on the bed. He felt himself getting an erection already.
“Wow. Tara, you look…amazing.” He said with a smile. “I can’t wait to see you without that dress on.”
“Well the come over here and help me get it off,” Katara gave a smirk and he came over to the bed.
Katara was sitting in the bathroom, leaning up against the tub. It had been a month since she and Zuko first had sex. They had done it several more times to get the feel of it, as it hurt the first two or three times. But Katara wasn’t thinking about how their last sexual encounter was so wonderful that the pair reached their orgasms simultaneously. No, Katara was looking at the little stick in her hand. And she started to cry.
Zuko was in the kitchen making dinner. They were having Tentacle Soup – one of Katara’s favorite dishes. When he heard the crying coming from the bathroom, he left the kitchen and walked down the hallway. She’s been in there for a while…I wonder what’s wrong…
“Katara? Are you okay?” He asked after knocking on the door. She was leaned up against the tub, tears running down her cheeks, onto her neck and chest.
“Zuko…I…I’m pregnant.” She looked down at the stick with the two lines, showing that she was, in fact, pregnant. “I’m sure I can figure out a way to cause an abortion. I can flood my stomach and drown the child, or just block the flow of food going to the child or—“
“Katara. No. We are keeping this child.” Zuko said sternly. She looked up at him, oceanic blue eyes on amber gold ones. She was confused. “I’m not leaving you. I know you think that’s what’s going to happen because of Aang and Toph, but I want to stay with you. If you really don’t want to have a child right now, we can give it up for adoption.”
Katara nodded and wiped the tears from her eyes. “Okay. I love you, Zuko.”
“I love you, Katara.”
Six years later, Ursa was running around the house that Katara and Zuko bought. The couple was sitting on the porch, watching as their daughter played with the toys on the front yard. Zuko squeezed Katara’s hand. “See, babe? Aren’t you glad that we decided to keep the child?”
Katara nodded. “Yes. I love Ursa with all my heart. And Iroh, too.” She rubbed her stomach, smiling at the man next to her. The rings on their fingers and the smiles on their faces where enough to show anyone in the area that Katara and Zuko were madly in love. The momentous day so long ago had changed their lives for the better.
So this may be one of the only times I use the word in the story itself. If you are wondering what happened between Aang and Toph, here’s my little thing – Aang and Toph dated for a while in high school (sophomore-senior year) and during their junior year Aang got Toph pregnant. Aang left Toph, not wanting to be a father this early, and Toph got an abortion. The most likely reason Katara got pregnant was because the condom broke. (They knew not to not use condoms.) I really hope you enjoyed this fic!
