College. A word that used to fill Zuko's mind with happiness. A fresh start, a new escape, away from everyone who used to know him. Of course, this was before the incident. After the incident, Zuko was filled with dread at the thought of being around so many people, people who might stare at him or look at him with judgement or pity. However, with the help of Iroh, he manages to start his freshman year of college, even with all the looks he has to endure. Yet, what he wasn't expecting was to meet a group of friends, of people who cared about him for his personality and not out of pity due to the scar on his face. But as Zuko knew from experience, everything good in life comes with a price.
