She found it rather ironic that she had a mission to fulfill and accomplish yet there was absolutely nothing she could do without arousing suspicion. So most of the time she spent on the ship was spent with her in her cabin, on the bed, fully clothed, brain adrift and mind wandering in past memories. She didn't know why but she kept on flashing back to the night when had Zuko asked her to be his bride. She figured it was because it made her feel happy and warm inside, plus it was a time before the chaos and confusion set in.
She missed Zuko's love and the nights they spent together, she would give anything to have him with her right now. She was tired of being alone.
But, the chance of Ozaian easing up and letting her spend some private time with Zuko was impossible. Elsa had visited her a few times since their briefing, mostly to deliver meals and clothes, and every time she did Elsa had warned her to stay away from Ozaian,

Old Enemies, and New Alliances
He sat there in his cage for what seemed like hours, with absolutely nothing to do. He let out another loud sigh. Sometimes it was hard to believe his luck, and the things fate let him fall into. He was never born lucky, while every one else around him seemed to be. His sister was always lucky; everything she did was done perfectly and easily.

The Truth: Part 2
Katara couldn't help but notice the venom that was soaked in the words that passed through his lips. She clung to Zuko's arm as if she was afraid he was going to disappear any second. Ozaian obviously noticed this and with his words lined with venom once more said, "Don't worry, Zuko will be tagging along with us in the brig."
Katara wouldn't have been surprised if Ozaian could turn into a snake or was ever a serpent of sorts.
The two of them just stood there against the wall of the cell. They had put what was left of their clothes back on and waited for what was going to happen next. Zuko just stared at Ozaian with hate filled eyes, wanting him gone and out of his life. Knowing all Ozaian would ever want to do is destroy everything he built.

'It's a boy,' exclaimed the midwife proudly, as she handed the newborn babe to its mother.
Sweat dripped from her brow, her hair was plastered to her scalp from the moisture. Yet despite how tired she was, she smiled as she looked at her wailing son.
