Prompt: Makorra: Mako’s first time seeing her in a dress at a Christmas party.
Mako remembered the first time he saw Korra in formal attire. It was the first Christmas he spent with Korra, Tenzin, and their family.
Tenzin and Korra were invited to a gala held by the City Council. Korra brought Mako as her date, although it was somewhat reluctantly and at Tenzin’s insistence. She mumbled something about not wanting to embarrass Mako with her lack of femininity.
Lack of femininity was the last thing on Mako’s mind as he saw her walk towards him as they got ready to leave for the party.
Mako had always thought of Korra as beautiful, but as she walked towards him in a long flowing blue gown with her hair free of their usual constraints, Mako could only describe her as breath taking. In fact, she looked so much like the ocean at the moment that Mako could see why water was her natural element.
He couldn’t get enough of dancing with her that night or showing her off. He couldn’t get enough of her afterwards, either.
