What Lies Beneath

Chapter 24

Felicity found that she couldn't answer him. He was asking her to marry him for christ's sake, this wasn't a decision made so easily. This was something, and she was sure even more so with him being a god, that she couldn't take back. Loki looked disappointed after a moment, having moved away from the bed and started towards the big bay windows.
“Okay...listen.”Felicity finally spoke after a moment,”Do I think of you as someone I could potentially see myself spending the rest of my life with....yes...do I want to jump into being your wife so quickly, no.”
“It would make you royalty, you would have power in these halls.”He said, glancing back at her.
“Do I look like I want to be a princess?”She asked, giving a small laugh,”I love you Loki Laufeyson...however I am not ready to be your bride just yet.”
“Why not?”He asked, turning to face her,”Why do humans, who have such a short life span, insist on waiting on everything.”
“Because we don't wait until after we're married to trust and love someone, it's trust and love that makes us want to get married.”She explained,”I do love and trust you, very much, however, I think that we should just hold off, make time to just enjoy what we have, enjoy each other, and be absolutely sure.”
“I am absolutely sure.”Loki announced, beaming brightly at her.
“Yes well, you're known for your rash decisions, and your ability to go for something despite the consequences.”She replied, giving him her own beaming smile.
“And?”He replied,”Makes me a good person.”
“Oh, you're just adorable, aren't you.”She mocked lightly, sticking her tongue out.
“So long as you think so.”
“Look...here's the deal, if you really love me, you'll wait till we're both ready.”Felicity finally told him,”I do trust you, but I'm just starting to, it's not something I want to jump head first in before I'm absolutely sure the water isn't full of sharks.”
“Fine.”He said simply.
“Fine what?”She asked, as she paused for a moment.
“I'll give you the time that you ask of me, however, I'm not happy that you need to think about anything.”He said, giving a small shrug.
“Alright, well, I don't like that you're being pushy.”She replied easily, sticking her tongue out at him once more,”However, regardless of my need to think, and be sure I'm ready, know that I adore you Loki...and that I am not going anywhere.”
Loki walked over to her, and put his hands around her arms, pulling her close. She smiled up at him as he rested his forehead against hers. He was like that when no one was looking. A little more emotional. A little more heartfelt. She closed her eyes for a moment and just let herself relax where they were standing.
“Let us rest,”He said as he turned her slowly and started back towards the bed.
Once she laid down, it didn't take Felicity any time to fall into a restful sleep. She could feel Loki laying next to her, and he rolled over, placing an arm over her protectively. She didn't have any worries, not even of Sigyn who had threatened her before disappearing. She didn't care about any of it right now. She was tired, and her mind was drifting off to better things.
The morning came all to soon for Felicity and she blinked her eyes open, rolling over to see that Loki wasn't in the bed. She had a mini heart attack as she sat up to look around and figure out where the hell she was anyway. She took several deep breaths and slowly relaxed. She was in Asgard. She was in Loki's room. She just now had to figure out where Loki was exactly, and why he hadn't woken her before he'd left.
She slowly climbed out of bed, stretching as she did so. She felt beyond rested, her body just slightly stiff, letting her know that she hadn't moved in the least. Yawning slightly, she looked around before moving forward, heading towards the huge bay window not far from his bed. She pushed back the dark curtains that seemed to keep so much light out, and looked out and around her. Her breath was gone for a moment as she took in the scenery. His room faced a garden, and past that garden, there was the city. The sun hitting the grand buildings making them almost glitter. This was easily the most beautiful place she had ever seen.
“Good morning”Felicity heard a voice say, and turned to see Frigga standing there.
“Good morning,”She replied, a small smile on her face as she bowed her head for a moment.
“You seem well rested, Felicity,”The woman spoke as she walked towards her.
“I am, thank you.”Felicity answered, smiling a little more.
“I wanted to speak with you, in private,”Frigga said after a moment, her hands resting easily at her side.
“About what, ma'm?”Felicity asked, looking only a little worried about what was going on.
“About last night...about how you reacted to Sigyn.”Frigga said, amusement lighting up her eyes.
“Oh...I'm sorry about that outburst, I should have held my tongue better.”Felicity said, blushing lightly.
“Child, you staked your claim on my son in front of everyone, and put that nymph in her place, why would you feel the need to apologize about that?”Frigga asked with a small laugh,”Is such temperament looked down upon in Midgard?”
“No, however I do not want you or anyone else here looking at me as just a trouble maker, either.”Felicity answered,”I just...did what I felt needed to be done.”
“That is what I wanted to tell you...”Frigga began, smiling softly,”I have never seen anyone speak with such emotion about Loki, you are the first, though he has not had many at his side.”
“You have given me a reason to adore you, little human, you have brought a light back to my son that I thought far gone.”She continued,”I want you to know that you're always welcome in Asgard, in these halls.”
“Thank you for that,”Felicity said softly,”I'm humbled, and I'm grateful to know that I have indeed made such an impact on him.”
“I wish you knew to the full extent.”Frigga said softly, that smile still placed on her lips,”I have not seen him so genuinely happy in such a long time, little mortal.”
“From what I saw when I first met him, I have a good idea.”Felicity replied, giving a bit of a laugh.
Frigga moved forward and placed her arms around Felicity in a small hug, before giving a firm nod of her head. After only a moment, the woman turned and slipped out of the room, not saying another word to Felicity, who was honestly standing there in a bit of shock. Well, at least mommy and daddy approved, She thought to herself with a small laugh.
