Cooking up Loki
"Talk about what?" Thor moved closer to me, which made me really uncomfortable. I moved slightly away from him, and he noticed.
"Forgive me, I didn't mean anything..."
"Why are you suddenly being nice to me? That one day when you almost killed me...uh, well not really, but you know what I mean. You were so angry at me that it made me scared of you everyday. Is it something I did that started making you nicer to me?" I knew it was a shock to him, but I just had to get that off my chest.
"Yes, I do remember that day. I never got to apologize for doing that to you, I felt so bad about it, but I never had enough time to tell you it. I'm never the mean one, always nice, and I think you know that. That day...it was just a really bad day. I had this terrible sickness and I couldn't control my actions. And from that day, I apologize for what I have done to you and made you feel." I was so shocked. I didn't expect to get an apology like this. It was really moving the way he put it. I could really tell he meant it.
"I didn't expect you to say that much Thor, but thank you. I thought you were like all princes who don't care about the common people, but I guess I was wrong. Sorry I got you off track, but was there something important you wanted to talk about?" He lit up.
"Yes! I totally forgot about it. Loki. I have always known him for doing many things, but he is also my brother. He may lie, play tricks on not only me but everyone in the kingdom, set my valuables on fire, but I do know he has a soft and caring side. You out of all people made him show that. I've seen the way he looks at you, the way he acts now. I can tell he's in love." What?! In LOVE? But with who? Well, isn't it obvious?! It's me.
"I-I don't understand. How can he be in love with me? He doesn't even know me that well really."
"The ring. I know in all of the nine realms that you couldn't have possibly steal it. My uncle and Eerika hasn't even come into Midgard until this morning. I know you don't have transportation powers like my brother does. I know he stole it and gave it to you. He plays with the things he likes, and that's you Alexia. If he ignored you, treated you like dirt, then he doesn't love you. He doesn't like to say what he's feeling, he just shows ways of his emotions. It's complicated to understand, but he's done it once before with my lady friend Sif. Can you guess what he did exactly?" I think I'm scared to find out.
"Did he push her off the rainbow bridge?" I asked in a mild tone. He then looked at me with a weirded out face.
"No, he didn't do that? Why would you think that?"
"Never mind. So, what did he do?" Thor straightened again.
"He cut her hair off. Not just a few strands, the whole thing." My mouth dropped open. I know if someone did that to me, I know he wouldn't get away with it! I love my hair too much!
"Why in the world did he do that?!"
"It's because he liked her. He had to show that feeling of love for her. I always found it strange, but it comes naturally to him."
"I'm just afraid he'll try to cut my hair off too!" I touched my hair frantically.
"Do not worry. The other reason he did that was to get me for liking her also. He wanted me to be angry, which I did. It must have made him happy. I just don't understand him sometimes, and why he does the stuff he does! But maybe, you'll find that out for me. Now do you understand why exactly he did this to you?" I nodded my head.
"Yes, it makes a lot more sense now. You've been so helpful Thor, but, am I going to get out of here?" He got off the bed, and ordered the guard to open the door. He walked out, and turned around. He held the door open and smiled.
"You are free to go, lady Alexia."
"But what about your father?" I asked timidly. He shut the cell door.
"Don't worry, I'll talk to him. Loki won't get away for what he did to you."
"Just promise me he won't hate me after?" He put his hand on my shoulder.
"I promise, you have my word. Now go." I blushed slightly. Oh no, I'm not falling for Thor am I? I don't believe so cause my heart still lingers for Loki, even if he did do this to me, but now I understand why. I need to find him. Thor left eventually, and now I was on my own.
Loki must be in his room, and that's where I will check. I walked up the many stairs to find the door to his bedroom. But before I opened it, or even knocked, I heard giggling. Slowly I opened it to find Eerika kissing Loki. Tears started falling down my face quickly, and I shut the door. I shouldn't even be crying! He doesn't care for me if he's kissing her, his cousin for Christ sakes! I started walking for my room, holding my arms across my chest. I expected him to come out and apologize, thinking that he saw me, but it never happened. I now started to huff between my sobs. I finally made it to my room, and I wanted to lay in my bed so badly. I wiped some of my tears away as I made it into my room. Once my eyes opened from being rubbed, I quickly stopped walking. There he was, sitting on my bed. I walked over, but said nothing and did nothing. I just stared at him. "I knew Thor was going to let you out sooner or later..." My hand rose suddenly, and I smacked his face, hard. There was a bright red mark on his right cheek. He just smiled. "I knew you were going to do that, but for what reason, may I ask?" I didn't know what to say. For maybe locking me up? Making me feel scared? Or the fact that I just saw him smooching his own cousin?
"You were just making out with your cousin in your room," I said calmly. His eyes widened.
"She's what?! I did that so we could just talk! Oh for heavens sake!" He then snapped his fingers. I then heard a scream from down the hall.
"Loki! Where did you go honey cakes?!" Loki cringed as he heard her say that. I just quietly laughed.
"What?" he asked with the hint of a smile. I then burst laughing uncontrollably. "What?" he asked again, laughing himself.
"Honey cakes?" I said through laughs. We both just started laughing. But then he suddenly stopped. "What's wrong?" I asked. He grew serious. I sat down next to him, leaving all my anger behind.
"What did Thor talk to you about in the cell? He always has something to say?" I tensed up. I can't tell him exactly what we said. I thought of something quick and stuck with it.
"Oh nothing really. We just talked about..."
"You're lying," he said, getting more angry.
"Woah, calm down. We didn't really say much..." Loki then sighed and ran a hand through his black slick hair.
"He told you that I have feelings for you, didn't he?" My breath caught in my throat. Did I hear him correctly?!
"H-How did you possibly know that?" I wonder what else he knows?
"I knew he would. He just doesn't know how to keep things to himself, does he?" So it is true! Suddenly, the doors burst open, and there stood Odin. I stood up quickly and bowed. Loki still sat, doing nothing.
"Loki," he boomed.
"Come with me now."
