What Lies Beneath

Chapter 2

Felicity awoke not in her bed. She blinked a few times, trying to figure out where she was, and what was going on. She looked around for a moment, before grunting in pain. She was so sore, which means, last night was in fact, not a dream, or a trip of any sort. Shit. Fuck. Not good. She tried very hard to think of where she could be, what she could be doing there, sadly nothing was coming to mind. She wasn't in a hospital. Okay, so that narrows down the list to a hundred places she could be. Great. Fantastic. So absolutely wonderful.
Felicity finally decided to sit up and get a good look at her surroundings. She groaned softly as she did, before looking up and around. Holy hells bells batman, this place was nice. Far nicer then her rinky dink one bedroom apartment anyway. It looked like a hotel. She turned herself, and placed her feet on the floor. She paused for a moment as her feet hit carpet, and she saw that she no longer had her shoes, or socks on. Okay. Not odd at all. She sighed a bit and slowly stood up, wanting to find a bathroom, or something. She needed to know the extent of the damage because she had to work tonight, and didn't want anyone freaking out on her.
She was shocked at just how nice this room was. What had she done? Died? Possibly. That would also explain meeting the god of chaos and mischief. Made more sense in her head then him saving her from some crazy guy trying to rape her, right? Yes. Definitely so.
“Oh good, you're awake human girl.”She heard a voice say, and she froze.
Felicity turned and by hell, there he was. His voice was silky smooth, and she couldn't tell if it was honest concern or malicious intent in his voice. She managed a very weak smile and nodded her head before looking down at the floor again. She probably looked terrible. Covered in blood, her hair a mess. What the hell. There was no reason to care. She needed to just get the hell out of here and go back to her very clearly mundane life.
“Do you not speak now?”He asked simply, one eyebrow arched up as he continued to watch her.
“I speak just fine, just tryin' to decide if I actually died last night, or am still in a current state of LSD tripping.”She replied simply as she looked back up at Loki with her bright hazel eyes.
“Neither, you're very much alive, and as far as I know....I'm very real, not a figment of your imagination, little girl.”He said easily, shrugging as if it was nothing, as if he automatically assumed that she would just believe him.
“Okay....seriously....this is just one big joke, isn't it?”She said, with a hysterical laugh,”A god...you're a god....really....and I'm just....suppose to accept that like it's nothing?”
“Yes.”He replied.
“I've snapped...”She grumbled and shook her head,”Well okay god of mischief....you put a bathroom in this place?”
“Do you assume I built this place, find it.”He said simply, before turning to leave the room.
“Gee thanks.”She snipped back, as she started towards the only other door in the room. It made the most sense that he would not be leaving the room into the bathroom, right, so take the other door.
Felicity stepped into the bathroom, and shut the door behind her, locking it, before walking over to the mirror. She looked like hell. She looked like she'd been beaten to hell, and her hair was a matted mess. She sighed and shook her head. She made a face to see that she wasn't in the clothing she was wearing last night. Who changed her? Surely not him. That's just awkward. She groaned a bit before stripping out of her clothing, and stepping into the shower. She let the water run over her, hot and wonderful, loosening up her tight sore muscles.
When she was finished, she stepped out of the shower, steam rolling around her, and looked down to see a towel waiting on the toilet seat, and on the counter there was a hair brush, and tooth brush. What the fuck. Seriously. She locked him out. Okay, so maybe he could get in, but what about normal people. They couldn't right. She blinked again and looked around. What was going on. She wasn't going to get privacy in this hotel room? Or around him, was that it? She just finally decided to accept the kind-ish, but creepy gesture, and grabbed the towel, wrapping it around her, as she went to brush her teeth.
It only took her a few minutes, and her hair was brushed, she was dressed again, and slipping out of the bathroom. She needed to go home and get ready for work tonight. She couldn't pay her rent by sticking around in this fancy place. That's not how the real world worked. Felicity found her shoes, and slipped them on, before heading out of the actual bedroom and into the rest of the hotel room. She found herself just as shocked at the beauty of this place. She didn't remember there being a hotel like this in her little podunk town in Indiana. In fact, she knew there wasn't. Her heart started racing. What was going on, where was she?
Felicity began to search all over the room, she had to find some sort of answers here. She had to figure out how far she was from home, so she could get back. Did people know she was missing? How was she going to explain that some God, literally, kidnapped her after she was beaten and almost raped. That sounded like such a ridiculous story. She'd have to come up with something else. She bit her lip and looked around for a moment, before letting out a shaky breath. She needed some answers here. Why wasn't she in her town, where had he taken her. Why had he saved her in the first place? All things that were confusing her right now.
“What are you doing?”Loki asked as he came back into the room, tilting his head just slightly at her before looking around the room, as if bored.
“Where are we?”She responded by asking a question of her own.
“Does that matter....your safe.”He answered her, a small smile on his face.
“It does matter...you took me from my home...that matters a lot....not that you'd understand, you're just a god right....all the power in the world, or some bullshit.”She snapped at him, crossing her arms over her chest.
“So...you'd rather have it that I leave you there to be beaten and raped by some strange man?”He asked, as he stood up straight, his blue eyes bearing down on her.
“Well no...but you could have taken me to the hospital....or somewhere near my home.”She said and shook her head,”Ya know what, I'm not going to even try and explain this to you.”
“We're in New York City.”He said simply.
“We're....where?”She asked, her eyes wide as she started towards a window.
“It's called New York....It's big.”He replied,”A good place to start.”
Felicity stood at the window, staring out into the city. Her eyes were wide with amazement. This was one of the places on her bucket list. She'd always wanted to come here and see everything. The whole city. She paused as she realized what he said, and turned to look at him for a moment, forgetting about the city that was only a few stories below her.
“Start what?”She asked curiously. What was he wanting to start, and was it gonna get her killed.
“That....is none of your business, woman.”He told her, shaking his head,”You're mortal, you wouldn't understand what I'm trying to do.”
“Oh I don't know....I'm willin' to bet I can understand a lot of things.”She retorted as she started towards him, wanting to pry the information from him. Curiosity was starting to kill her.
“I doubt it....you've never walked in my shoes, what I have planned, it's not of your concern.”
“It is if you dragged me all the way to fuckin' New York City, Mr. God of whatever.”She snipped lightly, smiling sweetly, though there was venom hiding behind her lips.
“I dragged you here, because I could not leave you there, You knew my name....you'd seen my face....and really....wouldn't you have found it rude if I'd just left you on the street?”He hissed back as he leaned towards her.
“I would have, but at least I could have gone back home.”She continued, her voice sweet as honey, though she was really just trying to pick a fight with him, get him to talk. She needed him to spill the beans, though she wasn't sure why. To stop him? How could she? To distract him so she could get away? And go where, exactly? She was picking a fight....with a god....and she had no plan B. She was feeling particularly stupid today. She was, she was.
“Well, that's not an option, so you'll have to just....I don't know....find a way to forgive me.”He said simply, putting his foot down, at least he was trying to anyway.
“Darlin'....I'd have had an easier time just forgetting you'd come into my life, then forgiving you from ripping me from it.”She told him, before shaking her head, turning to move away from him.
“You don't forget once you've met someone like me, you do know, mortal woman, it would have slipped from your tongue eventually.”He retorted.
Felicity turned her head back, glaring at him for a moment, before simply raising her middle finger. She wasn't going to get along with him very well. She could tell that now. She was suspicious of him, his motives. She didn't like that he felt the need to hide, so badly, that he stole her from her home, her friends. There was something going on in that big head of his that made her both nervous, and angry. She wanted to know what was going on, what had he dragged her into. She wanted to know, more then anything, if what he claimed to have planned, was going to allow her survival. She'd come to far to let a man like him, or well, a creature like him, take her down now.
