    The summer might have taken a sharp turn just last month, but although the end of July had not brought any good news to Korra and Sokka, at the very least, the two friends had effectively closed their case. Neither of them liked the result of course, but closure was better than false hope.

    It really was just the two of them now...

    Well... three, rather... Naga was still with them, after all.

    But even so, they had each started to and would continue to recover from this. Both the Avatar and Water Tribe warrior were set to continue and carry on even more than they already had been. As was their nature and the way of their people, they had to continue to go with the flow... and carrying on was the best thing for them here. They had both been through worse… and as they had contended with those events, they could certainly weather this.

    Even around their searching all over the Breach last month, both Korra and Sokka had made sure to keep each other distracted, the two of them taking to spending even more time together than they already did... if that was even possible. It had certainly been fun, especially with the numerous trips to the beach that they had made. Beach trips, the occasional spar, training sessions, general hanging out, food adventures, and other bouts of exploration had interspersed the search, and whilst the two friends would still have some of their lingering feelings from that unexpected news to sort through, at the very least, their focus on staying occupied had kickstarted their healing.

    And together, they could make it through anything.

    Now that he was back up in his room after a delicious lunch with Korra, Sokka was working through a pair of notepads (now THESE things had taken some serious getting used to after all the scrolls he had used over the years… at least they were efficient, though!) as he tried to sort out some of their upcoming plans for the weekend and coming week. He had finished the pair of odd jobs he himself had picked up for the week, so the weekend was nice and open as it often was for them. Hm… they still had a good chance to go the beach again soon… that was a definite possibility to run by Korra. Waterbender or not, he had a strong feeling that she would like the chance to have another outing to the beach.

    Aside from that and a pair of errand runs though… things were looking pretty light. Now that was good for flexibility… and with so much time, maybe… just maybe they could combine training with one of their chances to explore some more of the wilderness. They had already had an incredible excursion to the icelands earlier this year, and whilst Sokka was always happy to visit them, honestly… he wanted to enjoy summer as it was here. They could always return to the Unicode Tundra once things started to cool down in the city, after all. It might have been counterintuitive to some, but honestly, the weather there was nothing that Korra and Sokka weren't used to.

    Now they had trained and sparred at the training center of course… as well as at the beach, in the forest, in the grasslands… now where was next on a place for them… to…

    Wait a minute… the mountains. They had not got to train there yet. And even better, that would be a good place to check out since Korra was hoping to recover earthbending next. They weren't sure when that ability would unlock again for her, but maybe being around so much stone would help kickstart some of that for her…

    A training excursion to the mountains… as the gears started to turn in his head and Sokka started to think about more possibilities within this potential plan, he could not help but grin to himself.

    Now THAT was a good idea…

    This was it! This was absolutely it!

    How had Korra and Sokka not thought of a training excursion or even another adventure to the mountains yet?! Well, both he and Korra HAD had busy times regardless of their tiring searches just last month and the events earlier in the year, but still!

    A little after he sorted out some of the ideas in his head for a expedition to the Boolean Mountains, Sokka had jumped next door to share this possible plan with the Avatar. Between the desire to regain her powers, the chance to unlock her earthbending again, simple exploration, and of course a fun outing with her best friend, Korra had been more than thrilled for the idea, and thus their course was set. Honestly, at this point it was tough to tell which of the two of them was more excited for this… but either way, Sokka was just very happy that Korra was that keen on the idea.

    The two Water Tribe natives went over some general notes and the like for this training trip, and only after they had sorted out some things had Sokka returned to his room, having just made the promise to figure this all out and see what more he could learn so that they could make the most of this trip.

    Luckily, the Boolean Mountains were not TOO far out of the city… the only trick would be once they started to run into steeper terrain. Based on the maps and photographs he had studied well before now though, it looked that that was not going to prove to be too challenging for them. And for what it did… well, what better way for Korra to get another shot at unlocking her earthbending?

    Looking over the map of the Breach again, Sokka hummed in contemplation. There was some good information here, but something told him that maybe, just maybe there could be more to this trip…

    And when it was new information he needed, it was new information he sought.

    TO THE LIBRARY!
