Great Expectations (Loki Story)

Chapter 6 Selfish

Even good relationships fail. One minute you're standing on solid ground, the next minute- you're not. And there're always two versions. Yours and theirs. The both versions start the same way though. The both start with two people falling in love.

Loki stared at the ceiling in deep thought. Not 3 hours ago he had made love to Bella and he was still awake. Made Love…Loki thought. What an unfamilure concept to him. Loki stiffened when he felt Bella turn to face him, her eyes barley open. Groggily she spoke, a small smile place on her lips.
“You know Leon. It’s kind of funny. You have lived here for over a month now, we have eaten together, read together, slept together in now more ways than one, and yet I have no idea who you are. I know how you like your eggs, and what kind of literature you read. I know your fist name and that you’re from a forgine area. Your favorite color. I even feel I might know your heart, but I don’t know you. I know nothing about your home or family, our dreams, strengths, weaknesses. I don’t even know your last name, and yet, it’s enough for me. Don’t you find that funny?”
Loki could tell she wasn’t expecting an answer. He knew she probably wouldn’t even remember talking like this when she woke, Loki also knew though, she was right. Bella did not know him, in any way besides his small traits. Favorite color? As if that small amount of information was anywhere near what was necessary to establish a relationship. The part that saddens Loki is that he wasn’t sure she would ever know him. Not if he wanted to stay with her that is.

Bella awoke alone is bed. This both surprised her and worried her. Getting up Bella yawned and stretched, cracking her neck a little. Bella walked out of the spare bed room and walked down the hall to the kitchen and living room area, no sign of Leon. What was there was a small post-it on her coffee maker, the coffee maker itself full of what seemed to be fresh coffee. The note was simple and Bella had no idea how to respond. It only read,
‘I’m sorry.’
Only one thought was going through her head. What.The.Fuck?

Tony stumbled across his living room area of his apartment.
“Kitchen soo far…” He grumbled with a sleepy tone.
Yawning Tony poured a cup of coffee and sipped it.
‘Sir’ His AI Said. Tony sighed.
“What is it?”
It appears you have a visitor’ Tony shook his head and looked at the clock.
“Its 10:30 in the morning, anyone who knows me knows to not even try to bug me until noon.” Tony continued to sip his coffee and ignore the idea of a visitor.
‘Sir.’ The AI announced again.
“They look rather distressed.” Tony rolled his eyes.
“Show me a visual.” A screen popped up and Tony looked at it questioningly.
“Why they hell is he here? Send him up.” Tony waited as the Elevator made its way up to his humble home. As the doors opened Loki charged through.
“I will not live with that woman any longer!” He announced. Tony raised an eyebrow.
“Over here reindeer games. Now what are you talking about?” Loki walked over to the counter.
“I will not live with Bella any longer; she has become a problem that will not be resolved until I am no longer in need of seeing her.” Tony thought about what he was being told for a long moment, and then it hit him.
“You slept with her didn’t you?” Loki glared.
“That is not a matter of discussion.” Tony gaped.
“You did! Are you serious? Why the hell would you do that?” Loki glared more and stalked away to the window.
Tony set down his cup of coffee and made his way to Loki.
“This is just great! Fucking great, not only did you sleep with her, but you like her! A lot by the looks of it!” Loki clenched his jaw. How does this man always know everything?
“Well I hope you’re happy with your little game Loki.” Loki faced Tony.
“There was never a game.” Tony rolled his eyes.
“I don’t know what the hell possessed you to do this! Of all the things-..”
“I love her!” Tony stopped and gave Loki a cold look.
“No.” Loki was surprised by this.
“No? What do you mean no? There was no question!” Tony got closer to Loki.
“No. No. No. No. You don’t love her Loki, you can’t love her. She isn’t an option.” Loki rolled his eyes.
“Do you think me stupid? I am well aware of that. I cannot picture myself without her though.” Tony’s look softened a little.
“You just don’t get it do you? You can’t have her. You can’t love someone and lie to them about your entire life, it doesn’t work that way.” Loki tried to think.
“If I told her the truth.” Tony put a hand on Loki’s shoulder.
“If you told her the truth what? Hey Bella, we need to talk, you see this past month I have lied to you, my names not Leon, its Loki, I’m not from Europe, and I am from another planet. Oh and I was the guy who tried to kill you.” Loki looked at Tony.
“I would have never-“
“Yes you would have. You didn’t know her, you never met her, and had we not stopped you, she probably would have died. Along with Molly and Ben, and everyone else. If she lived? She would have been a slave Loki. Listen to me. The bad guy doesn’t get the girl.” Loki stared out the window and over looked the city he once tried to destroy.
“I don’t want to be the bad guy anymore.”

You think yours is the one that's gonna make it. So it always comes as a shock. The moment you realize it's over.One minute you're standing on solid ground, the next minute, you're not.

Bella sat in her arm chair and continued to read, glancing at the door any time the building made a sound. Leon had been gone all day and Bella didn’t know what to think. She was angry and sad, but waited for Leon to return. Her head shot up at the sound of the door knob turning, and she watched as Leon made his way into the room. He looked sad and this worried Bella.
“Leon where were you? You had me worried sick.” Leon apparently was not expecting to see Bella awake, since he held a small look of surprise when she spoke.
Getting up from the couch Bella walked over to Leon and placed a hand on his shoulder.
“Are you ok?” Leon gave her a small smile.
“Yeah I’m ok. I’m sorry I needed to visit Tony and I didn’t know how long I would be gone.” Bella sighed.
“You could have said that much on your little note. I’m sorry? What was I supposed to get from that?” Loki looked at Bella. Whose face held a small look of worry.
“I apologies, let’s just go to sleep please.” Bella hesitated but nodded, giving him a small kiss on the cheek. In bed Loki held onto Bella as she slept, no worry in her mind any longer. Loki felt a ping of guilt in his heart, knowing that he was being selfish, and that this would probably blow up in his face later. He couldn’t help it though. The one thing he wanted, the one person who he had a chance to love, wouldn’t want him had he told the truth. It hurt him to think about having her hate him for telling the truth. It was when Loki walked home that he decided that Bella and he are happy now, and until the truth comes up on its own, he wanted them to be happy, because Loki didn’t know how down he would go when it went away.

Do you have what it takes? If your relationship is in trouble, can you weather the storm? When the ground gives way and your world collapses, maybe you just need to have faith. And trust that you can survive this together. Maybe you just need to hold on tight. And no matter what, don't let go.



Please put up a sequal. This was so good and I love it. ")
