Zuko was sweet, and Azula never was. And so, Ursa loved Zuko unequivocally. As for That One (Azula) Ursa shuddered in fear and repulsion, her hands icy and shaking, and a voice is screaming (clear, sharp, and sweet) in her head.

“For you,” Azula says proudly. And thrusts a bundled mess of flowers into Ursa’s lap.

“Thank you.”

And for a moment, Ursa tries to smile but Azula is not letting her. Is not releasing her arm, is not (stopping) playing.

-x-

“Mother loves me more!”

Azula snarled, unleashing ten years of pent-up rage. And before Ursa could register exactly what happened, Zuko was on the floor. Unconscious, beaten, and his jaw-bone blatantly white (exposed).

Soon, the screams began, but Zuko continued to whimper. And Azula continued to say (in her baby-soft, lulling voice): Mommy, Mommy. I Am So Sorry.

And Ursa reached over to pet her daughter, but her hand froze in midair. Scared and panicked, Ursa ran.

-x-

On the night she left, Ursa kissed Zuko goodbye. And Azula saw—

Everything.

But she didn’t (the latter) say a word and from then till forever, Azula swore to make her—them pay.

And so, they did. On the last day (right up to the second, to the hilt), Ursa came back. And Ozai passed out from shock. And Azula burst into flames. And Zuko was waiting. For her—Mother.

At last.
