Reincarnation

You are not going to believe what just happened!”

A smile formed on Zuko's face as he turned around to see Katara come walking from the treeline. He had very quickly come to love the sound of her voice.

Since that first day, eleven days ago (yes, Zuko kept count), she hadn't bothered bringing more than a knife just out of habit. But today she wore an axe in her belt and she had a shield strapped to her back. Zuko raised an eyebrow at her.

I'll get to that,” she said before greeting Swordtooth by scratching the side of his head, as Zuko had showed her a few days ago. Swordtooth was usually quite shy around practically anyone that wasn't Zuko or possibly his uncle, but he seemed to really like Katara.

So, today we received some visitors from an island south of here that we've had contact with for decades,” she said, still focusing on Swordtooth, “and among them is this girl, Suki. I've met her a few times before when we have visited them and I quite like her. She's one of the strongest warriors on their island, only a fool would question that.” Now she turned to Zuko, a huge grin on her face. “I've told you about my brother, right? He has this habit of underestimating people who are smaller than him and today he decided not only to underestimate Suki but also tease her.” She had to pause to laugh. “It took her one blow – one blow, Zuko – to knock him to the ground. I've never seen him so humiliated in my entire life, it was hilarious!”

Since Zuko didn't know her brother, the story wasn't as funny to him as it was to her but when Katara laughed, it was impossible not to laugh with her. He then walked over to her and Swordtooth and smoothly slid her axe out of her belt, twisting it in his grip. “What does your axe have to do with it?”

Katara snatched the weapon back from him and poked him in the chest with the hilt. “Well, seeing Sokka's defeat reminded me of your not-so-smooth fighting skills.” She directed a mocking grin at him. “And I thought we might have a spar. Just in case, you know, you stumble into someone from my village. Even the children are trained in self-defence. You do have weapons, right?”

Zuko narrowed his eyes on her, though he couldn't completely conceal a tiny smile. “Firstly, that wasn't a fair fight – it wasn't a fight at all, I just wanted to protect Swordtooth. Secondly, I have weapons alright and you haven't even seen me use them so take it easy with your presumptions.”

Katara snorted. “We'll just have to see about that, won't we? But we can't spar here, someone might hear us. I was thinking that maybe we could fly east? There's a huge cliff with a flat top not too far away, I noticed it yesterday on our way back. Unless of course you're afraid...”

She was awfully good at pasting an innocent look on her face. Zuko crossed his arms and leaned in a little. “You're on.”

Some sort of excited little giggle escaped her mouth and she jumped around Swordtooth to climb onto his back. Zuko climbed on as well and seated himself in front of her. Before long, her arms encircled his upper body as usual and Zuko wondered faintly if he'd ever get used to this. Then they were off.

They had barely been in the air for two minutes before Katara's hands moved to his shoulders. “Can I try standing up?”

Zuko had only tried to fly standing a handful of times and neither of the attempts had ended well. But he had never tried with someone else there to help him keep balance. “Sure,” he said after some consideration, “but you have to be careful.”

Yeah, yeah,” Zuko thought he heard her mumble before she moved her body backwards to make place for her feet. Then she moved her weight to her feet and slowly started to stand up. Her back was still bent when she lost her balance and had to grip Zuko's shoulders.

Swordtooth, fly straight!” Zuko patted the dragon's neck. “Nice and easy.”

Can you give me your hand to hold on to?” Katara asked behind him. He immediately obliged and she took his hand in a tight grip. With a deep breath, she straightened her back and stood up all the way. Zuko felt through her grasp how she struggled to keep her balance but eventually her hand grew still. And then her grip loosened until she pulled her hand away completely. He had to turn around and look at her.

The smile on her face was the brightest thing he'd ever seen. Her arms were stretched out like wings of her own. Zuko was once more amazed by this young woman, not only because of her ability to balance on a moving dragon all the while laughing but more because she was brave enough to do so. He had never met a braver person. He couldn't help but smile as he looked up at her.

When they were closing in on the cliff she had pointed out, they were hit by a powerful gust of wind and Katara was almost blown over. The stab of fear Zuko felt in that moment was indescribable. But Katara was quick-witted and gripped Zuko's shoulders and at the same time threw herself down to sit behind him again. Zuko felt her wince in pain at the impact but she was still with him and that was enough.

Sparring would not be difficult on the cliff, the top was wide and the ground was flat. It was all in stone, so a fall might hurt but Zuko figured that wouldn't be much of a problem since he intended to stay on his feet this time. Katara walked up to him with wide eyes as he pulled out his dual broadswords from the bag he kept strapped behind the saddle on Swordtooth's back. “What are those?”

Zuko raised an eyebrow at her. “Don't you have swords here?”

Yes, of course we do but nothing like these. They are so light and thin. How could they possibly kill a--” She stopped short and turned to him with an apologetic look. “Sorry. We are taught since infancy to always assess things in terms of how they might help us against the dragons. It's not easy to break a habit like that...”

I know, don't worry about it.” Zuko took a few steps backwards with his swords raised and started moving them in a flowing motion. “These are dual swords – twins, you might say. They are supposed to be two parts of the same weapon, if you use them correctly. Back at home, we generally don't use axes or heavy weapons like you do. We prefer speed to raw strength.” Then he smirked at her. “We'll see if you can keep up.”

Katara just scoffed and pulled her axe from her belt. Then she unstrapped the shield she had tied to Swordtooth's side during the flight and walked up to Zuko. If it hadn't been for the grin on her lips, she would have looked intimidating with her axe and shield raised in a fighting stance.

Are you ready?” She was really excited about this, he could ear it in her voice. In all honesty, Zuko couldn't deny that he was as well – he hadn't sparred properly with someone for years, let alone someone as talented as her.

Are you?”

There was a glint in her eye right before she charged, swinging her axe in a wide motion to build up as much force in the blow as possible. Zuko wasn't surprised when he had to stagger backwards a few steps after throwing his swords up to block the axe. She was trained to kill large beasts with high endurance and that demanded a lot of strength. But strength generally meant slower movements, so Zuko decided to test her speed. He lashed out with one sword and then the other, over and over.

Her work with the shield was incredible. Most people would just keep the shield up to take all the hits. But Katara never stopped moving it, she watched his movement closely and then angled the shield in ways that not only deflected the force in his blows but also rebounded it up into his arm. Her attacks with the axe might be a bit slow but her defence certainly was not. She was tiring him out.

Instead of keeping hacking away at her shield, Zuko started attacking with wider blows from both sides. With Katara's defence and attacks here and there, it almost became a dance. A dance of push and pull, like the water by the beaches in his homeland. Despite their different fighting styles, their movements fitted strangely well together. They were equal.

Eventually, neither of them knew how long they had been at it and they both ended up lying on the ground close to the edge, trying to catch their breaths. Swordtooth watched them from where he had settled on the opposite side of the cliff to keep out of their fight. Zuko didn't speak until his heartbeat had gone back to normal.

But if you have important guests, doesn't your father expect your presence? You did say he's the chief, didn't you?”

Katara didn't respond for a while. Then she sighed and sat up. “I suppose he does. But he can expect my presence all he wants. I won't let his expectations rule my life.”

Zuko furrowed his brow and sat up next to her. He wasn't used to that tone, there was almost bitterness in it. He frowned at her in question.

She sighed again before she spoke. “My father wants me to take over as chief. He keeps going on and on about how I have the right temper for it and how comforting it would be for the tribe since they all know me so well. What I want doesn't interest him.”

What about Sokka?”

Sokka has already sworn his life to boat building. 'Improving our ships is just as important as good leadership in the war against the dragons,' Dad says. He thinks we might be able to find their nest if our ships were able to sail farther. Whether I want to lead the war against the dragons isn't important, Sokka and I are supposed to carry the pride of the village after him.”

She looked out at the sea before them in silence after that. But Zuko sensed she was not done so he said nothing. Eventually, she moved her body closer to his so that she faced him. She looked into his eyes.

Meeting you has made me realize that there is so much more in this world than I'd ever imagined. You've been all over and I'd like to hear you try saying there are not incredible things out there. I can't live my life chained to that rock, it's not who I am.” Her eyes shifted to his hair and a heartbeat later, she reached up and started braiding a lock of it. It was not the first time she did it but Zuko was taken aback every time. It amazed him how forward and physical she was but something told him it was just the way people were around here, as opposed to his own very reserved and impersonal people. He didn't mind though.

I know you have the same gods as we do where you're from,” she started after a stretch of silence, still working with his hair, “but I'm not sure what you believe happens after we die. Here we believe there are two alternatives; either you simply cease to exist or you can be reborn in the next world and live among the gods for evermore. The latter is only for those who live boldly, who fight and die fighting one way or another.” She looked up and searched his face, awaiting his response.

We don't believe precisely that, but something similar.”

Katara nodded and went back to her braiding. “I don't know if you've noticed, but I'm not exactly the one to ever back down from a challenge, even if it might be dangerous...”

Zuko almost laughed. “I've noticed.”

She ignored his amused tone. “I can't be one of those who cease to exist, I just can't. I mean, can you even imagine what the next world would be like? Walking among the gods and sharing their table! Just think about it; a new version of yourself – your soul reborn as an equal to the gods!” Her eyes shone as she spoke. But then her face darkened. “There's no way I'll be reborn if I spend my life here, taking care of my village. I don't mean to turn my back on them – I would never do that – but it's just not enough. I need more. And that's why I can't become chief. I don't want to disappoint my father but I simply can't be what he expects me to.”

Zuko turned his eyes away from her and looked at the setting sun. “I should know all about being a disappointment to one's father...” He still hadn't told her the whole story of how he had refused to hand Swordtooth over when his father had demanded it. He had known very well that his father would have turned the dragon into an obedient weapon, into a killer. For a long time he had thought of his affection for Swordtooth as a great weakness and he had seen his scar as his own fault. But now he didn't blame himself anymore. Flying across the world on Swordtooth's back had taught him quite a lot. Said dragon seemed to sense Zuko's unease as he thought of that day, because he walked over to them and lied down next to Zuko. He patted the dragon's head.

Zuko considered elaborating on his comment but decided not to. He didn't feel like reliving his memories even more by talking about them and they weren't even talking about him anyway.

I don't know your father but based on what you've told me, he seems to be a good man. I think that if you just force him to listen to what you have to say, he will understand. It won't be easy for him but eventually he'll accept it and find someone else to take over for him.”

Katara looked at him for a moment and then snorted quietly as she looked away at the sunset. “We'll see. All I know is that one way or another, I am going to the next world. I won't accept anything else.” Suddenly she turned back to him. “Will you promise to meet me there? Promise that no matter how things turn out, we'll see each other there.”

Zuko could do nothing but stare. He had never really thought much about the afterlife, he didn't even know what he believed. But looking at her now, seeing her hopeful eyes, he realized he would believe in anything that would bring him closer to her. “I... I'd like that. I promise.”

When she gave him that wonderful smile, he found himself leaning in towards her. His eyes flickered between her lips and her eyes and slowly, he leaned closer. He stopped just before their lips met, not sure if this was the right thing to do.

Naturally, Swordtooth picked up the tension between them, being the perceptive creature that he was. Deciding to help his friend out, he gave Zuko a push in the back with his head and forced their lips together.

Zuko almost pulled back to either laugh or bark at Swordtooth but Katara had already wrapped her arms around his neck. So he decided to abandon his inhibitions and pulled her even closer, deepening the kiss.

She had made him promise to meet her in the next world after all, and being bold seemed to be the best way to get there. 

Zutara Week 2016, Day 2
Second submission for​ the week!! It’s very late but this one was difficult and then school started. Continuation of my fic for day 1. It doesn’t exactly fit the theme, but I really wanted to write more of my How To Train Your Dragon!AU. There are some details from HTTYD 2 and it’s also inspired by Old Norse mythology. Hope you like it!

*I don't own Avatar: the Last AirbenderHow To Train Your Dragon or any of the characters! Swordtooth is mine, but nothing else.

Dragons

The wind was cold against Zuko's face as he flew through the air, not too cold though. It was refreshingly cold. But that was probably because it was only early autumn. He could imagine these northern isles were freezing during winter. The landscape beneath him had a rugged kind of beauty to it; high trees in deep forests, even higher hills sticking up here and there and streams of water in all sizes flowing from the land and out into the sea. And then there were rocks, a lot of rocks. The coasts were all in stone, no sand like there was in the west, where Zuko came from. In fact, this island had more rocks than Zuko had ever seen before, and of course there was no ignoring the monstrous cliff making out the entire northern part of he island. Zuko couldn't even see the top of it, he was flying considerably lower than the almost mountain before him.

A frustrated growl interrupted Zuko's musings and he leaned down to the side to properly look at Swordtooth. “Are you hungry, is that it?” The dragon growled once more and turned his gaze toward a small lake currently beneath them.

Alright, let's take a break,” Zuko said and shifted his weight on the dragon's back to steer down towards the ground. Swordtooth landed gracefully as always but then threw Zuko off and trotted over to the lake.

Hey!” Zuko rubbed the spot on his back on which he had landed. “You know I'm better at catching fish than you, so be nice!” Sometimes Zuko wondered how Swordtooth had survived before he had found him, because someone who's even worse at catching fish than Zuko couldn't possibly stand much of a chance at survival. Though, the dragon had only been a few months old after all so maybe he still hadn't learned. After Zuko had found him and started feeding him, Swordtooth hadn't had much reason to learn how to catch his own food. It was something they needed to work on, Zuko thought, just in case they got separated.

This, however, wasn't the time for that since Zuko himself started to work up quite a hunger. He threw a last glance at the red-scaled reptile, currently looking intently into the water after fish, before he walked into the woods to find a stick to turn into a spear. It took some time before he found one that was thick enough and started walking back.

Just as he reached the treeline around the lake, he heard a war cry that was definitely not Swordtooth's. He immediately started sprinting towards the lake, pushing a few branches out of his way as he went. Then he saw her. A dark-skinned girl with dark hair pulled back in a thick braid. She had an axe in one hand and some sort of long dagger in the other and her strangely blue eyes shone as she charged headlong at Swordtooth. It was only thanks to the extreme adrenaline rush that Zuko made it to her before she got to Swordtooth. He threw himself at her and toppled her to the ground. She released her weapons in the fall and Zuko was quick to grab her wrists and pin her to the ground.

What in the Gods' name are you doing?!” he shouted down at her.

What are YOU doing?! That's a dragon right there, do you want to get killed?!” Her eyes were vivid with fury. Now Zuko was just confused. What kind of people lived on this island? They didn't have dragons of their own? Were they still fighting the dragons, like in the century-old tales of the Western Isles?

In this moment of confusion, Zuko's grip on her wrists loosened ever so little and she took advantage of that. Without him realizing what was happening, she twisted her body out from under him and at the same time flipped him over on his back, throwing her legs around his torso and arms in a lock. She took hold of his hair, pulling his head back with one hand and reached for her axe with the other and then put it against his throat.

Now, listen to me closely,” she hissed in his ear. “You are going to tell me who you are, where you're from and what you are doing here. And I want to know how you are able to control this dragon.”

Zuko's eyes landed on Swordtooth, who was crouching a few arm lengths away. The dragon was prepared to strike at any moment, but he was an intelligent creature and he understood that Zuko would be in danger if he attacked now. This girl was also intelligent and she had picked up Zuko's relation to the dragon, which was why she had positioned Zuko between her and the beast. Not only was she intelligent, but she was also an exquisite fighter. Zuko was stuck. So he figured he might as well answer her questions. If he just kept it simple, he wouldn't reveal anything that could endanger him.

My name is Zuko, I'm from the west and I'm just passing through. I didn't even know there were people here.”

She was silent for a while but she seemed to accept his answer. “And the dragon?”

He's my friend, been with me since I was a child. I don't control him, he's just loyal to me as I am to him.”

The girl made some kind of snorting sound. “That's ridiculous. Dragons don't know any loyalty to us, they kill us as soon as they get a chance. Now, stop lying to me and tell me what you did to the dragon!” She yanked hard at his hair and pressed the blade harder against his throat, almost drawing blood.

Zuko couldn't help releasing a pained sound. This girl was dangerous, he didn't know if she would actually kill him but he was pretty sure she was willing to take him prisoner and kill Swordtooth. She was probably capable of taking out the dragon, she had been fearless as she charged earlier and Swordtooth had never been much of a fighter. Zuko needed to get to Swordtooth and get out of there.

I'm not lying to you! Where I'm from, we befriend dragons.” At least we used to. “If you earn a dragon's trust, there's nothing they won't do for you. I can show you.”

Silence again. It bothered Zuko not being able to see her face. Then suddenly the lock on his upper body was gone and he was being pulled upwards. He had to scramble to his feet and stagger backwards in order not to slice his throat against her axe as she began walking away from Swordtooth. “I don't trust you,” she said close to his ear. “I don't know what else to do with you than to bring you back to my village. Tell your dragon to stay where he is.” She yanked at his hair again to put emphasis on her words.

He had to do something now. “Wait, slow down a moment!” he improvised. “There's a special whistle in my right boot. That's how I control the dragon. I can't tell him to stay without it.” He knew she probably didn't believe him and she wouldn't release him but all he needed was for her to lose focus just one second.

Fine,” he heard her say after a moment of consideration. “Reach for it yourself but I hope for your sake you're not lying.” Zuko felt the pressure on his throat disappear as she removed the axe just an inch and he immediately gave the signal.

It was a bird-like sound he had picked up years back and just for fun trained Swordtooth to roar at. Swordtooth's roars weren't like most dragons', his roars had an overtone to them that was almost unbearably high to most people. After years and years of enduring it, Zuko was practically immune but the girl wasn't. Her only instinct was to cover her ears and in doing so, she released both the axe and Zuko's hair. By the time she did that, Zuko was ready. He swept a leg under hers and knocked her to the ground before sprinting towards Swordtooth.

He was, however, not ready for her counterattack. How could she already be on her feet? She had managed to run after him and throw herself over him, bringing them both to the ground. Somehow, she got him on his back so she could straddle his chest, pinning his arms to the ground with her knees. Her eyes were even more furious now than before. There was something in the way she placed her hand under his chin and pressed his head into the dirt that told Zuko that she was angrier than before. But anger makes you reckless, Zuko knew all about that one. And by the time she remembered the dragon, it was already too late.

In one swift movement, Swordtooth had jumped towards them, fitted an unclawed foot in the girl's chest and thrown her off of Zuko. Zuko got to his feet quickly and saw the girl caught between Swordtooth's foot and the ground, punching and clawing at the dragon to get free. Swordtooth was watching her closely with narrowed eyes, the kind of eyes he only directed towards enemies.

Swordtooth!” Zuko called and the dragon turned his head towards him, eyes immediately changing. “No.” Zuko looked sternly into those eyes. Swordtooth didn't generally hurt humans, but when someone threatened Zuko, there was no telling what he would do. He would never do anything to make Zuko unhappy though, so he just kept the girl where she was but stopped looking at her like he was about to bite her head off.

Zuko walked over to Swordtooth and climbed onto his back. Then he leaned his body to the side and looked at the girl. “I don't want to hurt you. We are going to leave now. Just let us leave and I promise you we won't be back.”

With that, Zuko signalled to Swordtooth to release the girl and prepare to take off. The dragon always needed to run a shorter distance before he could spread his wings and push off into the air. Just as they had left the ground, Zuko heard a frustrated outcry and the next moment, a small rock hit him in the back and then graced Swordtooth's side before it fell to the ground. It was probably not meant to harm, she was just angry, so Zuko didn't think to do anything about it. Swordtooth, however, seemed to have had enough because he circled back around and flew right at her.

At this point, Zuko had no idea what Swordtooth would do, so he was relieved when the dragon simply picked her up with his front feet and then started flying upwards. He wanted to scare her. Or prove her wrong. Or both. Probably both, Zuko thought. But he knew Swordtooth wouldn't drop her so he let the dragon be for the time being.

The girl screamed and screamed in horror. Eventually, Swordtooth grew tired of it and threw her up in the air before him, timing it perfectly for Zuko to catch her. He placed her on the saddle behind him. “What are you going to do to me?” he heard her ask and there was almost a tremor in her voice. Zuko allowed himself some satisfaction at this, she had been awfully rude to him after all. Had he not had Swordtooth to worry about earlier, he probably wouldn't have controlled his temper.

I'm not sure what he intends to do but I suggest you stay quiet and hold on tight,” he said over his shoulder and reached for her arms to pull them around his abdomen. But she swatted his hands away and settled her hands on the sides of the saddle instead. “Suit yourself,” Zuko muttered and turned his attention to Swordtooth.

Zuko only had time to catch a mischievous glimpse in the dragon's eye before he turned his body and dived straight towards the sea beneath them. Oh yes, he was definitely out to scare her. And it worked, she was once more screaming at the top of her lungs – in Zuko's ear, at that. “Swordtooth!” he shouted. “Stop!”

It didn't make it any better though as the dragon just started flying up and down, here and there instead with the same speed. Now he was just being mean, almost throwing the girl off with every sharp turn of his body. It made her get over herself and curl her arms tightly around Zuko's torso. “Please, stop!” she yelled.”I'll do anything, just STOP!”

And suddenly, as if he'd been waiting for her to surrender, Swordtooth stopped moving erratically, stretched out his wings and started flying straight. They flew peacefully through the air now, Swordtooth even took them through the thick layer of gray clouds. Up above, the afternoon sun shone brightly but not too brightly. It created shadows among the clouds underneath them, making it look like a sea of white. Zuko felt the girl relax as she took in the view. Her arms around him loosened, but she didn't remove them.

I don't understand...” she said quietly after a long while. “Humans and dragons are natural enemies. How is this possible?”

Zuko didn't say anything at first. He didn't know if he was supposed to answer that. “What's your name?” he finally decided to ask.

A few silent seconds passed. “Katara.”

It was a pretty name. “Well, Katara, my people used to be like you – we used to fight the dragons. But then one day, a woman came flying from the mountains on the back of a dragon and she showed us that dragons are actually kind and loyal creatures. For the last hundred years, we have lived side by side with them.” He leaned down and stroked Swordtooth's neck.

But how can you do that? Just look at what they did to your face.”

Zuko froze. Then he slowly moved his hand to his scar. “Dragons didn't do this. My father did.” Sure, he had used a dragon to do it but that was besides the point. Sure, dragons had been used as weapons since Zuko's grandfather's time but not all people agreed with the war chieftains of the Western Isles.

This silenced her. She let her arms fall away from him. “I'm sorry,” she whispered after a while.

Once again, Zuko wished he could see her face. “It's alright. How would you have known?”

They kept flying in silence after that. Zuko figured this must be a lot to take in for the girl – for Katara. The clouds beneath them had started to clear, he noticed. They were just flying above a large crack in the sea of clouds when Zuko heard Katara gasp slightly. He looked down and saw the enormous cliff of the island and a group of houses at the northern base of it.

Is that your village?” he asked. He felt her nod against his shoulder as she stretched her neck to look down at her home. Zuko signalled to Swordtooth to fly down through the crack toward the cliff.

Before they could get close, Katara's hand closed around Zuko's. “Keep your distance. We have lookouts on the top and I don't want them to see us. They... they wouldn't understand...” She paused. “Could you maybe set me down where we took off? I need to get my weapons.”

Zuko found himself getting more and more intrigued by this girl. Only half an hour ago, she had been ready to knock him out and possibly kill Swordtooth. Now she was like a different person, her voice was so warm. As he watched her climb down from Swordtooth's back when they landed, he couldn't help noticing how gracefully she moved.

Katara seemed hesitant once she got to the ground. Both Zuko and his dragon were watching her intently and her eyes shifted to meet Swordtooth's. Carefully, she moved over to him and then raised her hand ever so slowly to place it against his neck, all the while looking into his eyes. When her hand made contact with the dragon and nothing bad happened, a smile spread across her face. Then she turned her wide eyes to Zuko. Gods, she was beautiful.

You said before that you are just passing by. Are you going somewhere in particular?”

Zuko tore his eyes away from her lips and cleared his throat. “No, not really,” he said and patted Swordtooth's side, “we're pretty much going wherever the wind takes us.”

Katara nodded slowly and then averted her eyes. “Do... do you think we could do this again?” If Zuko wasn't mistaken, there was a tiny blush on her cheeks. But then she turned her eyes back to him and they were filled with determination. “I don't understand all this, but I want to be able to. I've never felt the kind of freedom I felt above the clouds before, it's truly amazing up there.” She looked at Swordtooth and stroked his neck. “He is amazing.”

Zuko was completely taken aback. Only when she turned a questioning gaze at him did he pull himself together. “U--um sure! Whenever you want...”

The smile returned to her face. “Meet me here tomorrow at noon. And uh,” she said just as she was turning away, throwing a last glance at him, “thanks for this. And sorry I threw that rock at you.”

Zuko didn't move an inch. He just watched as she picked up her axe and her dagger and then disappeared into the woods. He hadn't thought much of this island, apart from its rugged beauty. But by the gods was he happy Swordtooth had decided this was the right place for lunch.
