Borra week prompt: Korra notices that Bolin’s got huge hands yet he’s so gentle with them, from taking care of Pabu, to giving beautiful flowers, to holding her hand… (requested by blackaerin)
Characters: Bolin, Korra, and a dash of Mama Mako
“Hey, Bo-” Korra’s greeting was interrupted by a sharp cry of pain. Jumping back, she realized she had stepped right on Bolin’s hand. Smooth, Korra. She recalled his words after the championship match - Haven’t you hurt me enough, woman? Apparently not.
She had only meant to come and talk to Bolin. They hadn’t really had much time for conversation lately, and he possessed the uncanny ability to make her feel better no matter what was on her mind. The effects of being bloodbent, captured, and attacked weren’t exactly short-term. She had found him laying back on the edge of Air Temple Island, staring at the pro-bending arena, Pabu in his lap. His arms had been stretched out behind him so his hands were on the ground supporting his position. Then she had trampled one of them.
