Proud of your boy

Proud of your boy
I'll make you proud of your boy
Believe me bad as I've been Ma
Your in for a pleasant surprise

Zuko looked at the portrait of his Uncle.
How could I do that to you? One of these days I'll make you proud of me.

I've wasted time.
I've wasted me.
So say I'm slow for my age
A late bloomer
Okay I agree.

Everyone thought he was slow for his age, except for his Uncle, his Mother and Lu Ten. Then Lu Ten died and his mother vanished. With them gone his Uncle was the only thing stopping him from believing it.

That I've been one rotten kid
Some son
Some pride
And some joy

Zuko thought back to his days of hunting the avatar.
Uncle had been so patient. How could he regard me as a son?

But I'll get over these
Lousin' up
Messin' up
Screwin' up times

I making amends now, Zuko thought as he went through a basic firebending technique with Aang. I'm getting over screwing up and not thinking things through.

You'll see Ma
Now comes the better part
Someone's gonna make good
Cross his stupid heart

"Why am I so bad at being good!"
Zuko called out into the night.
I promised I'd be good!

Make good
And finally make you
Proud of your boy

"I'll make you proud of me, I promise. I'll be good."
Zuko whispered a tear slipping down his cheek.

Tell me that I've been
A louse and a loafer.
You won't get a fight here no ma'am
Say I'm a goldbrick,
A goof off, no good
But that couldn't be all that I am

Zuko knew what he was. He knew how awful he could be. Especially to those he loves, Mai, Uncle, Lu Ten, Mother. He wouldn't argue with anyone about that. But something inside told him he was more then that.

Water flows under the bridge
Let it pass let it go
There's no good reason
That you should believe me
Not yet, I know

Zuko hoped his Uncle could forgive his betrayal, let it go. Zuko was totally unprepared for his uncle to forgive him so easily. Even after he was forgiven, Zuko still felt he had to make his Uncle proud.

But, someday and soon
I'll make you proud of your boy
Though I can't make myself taller
Or smarter
Or handsome
Or wise

I will make you proud. Someday and soon. I can't change myself but since you don't have a son I will make you proud and bring you honor.
Zuko thought as his Uncle hugged him.

I'll do my best,
What else can I do?
Since I wasn't born perfect
Like dad or you.
I will try to
Try hard to make you
Proud of your boy.

Zuko curled up and fell asleep knowing that along with the comet came the chance to make his uncle proud.

A/N3: Not my best work I have to admit but ah well pleas R&R!
