Imagine being a friend of Bruce Banner’s and he introduces you to Loki. You come about the Avenger’s home a lot, so you see Loki all the time. Imagine noticing that while Loki picks at the Avengers and causes trouble, he tends to disappear for hours at a time by himself. One day you follow Loki (not knowing that he knows) and discover that he spends his time at a lake, just staring out at the water.
"I know you’re there," Loki says and you walk over to sit by his side.
After a few moments of silence you quietly ask, “Are you okay?” To which Loki doesn’t reply to right away. He turns his head to the side to glance at you with confusion clear in his eyes. “Well?” you prompt.
"No one has ever asked me that before," Loki admits sadly and you can see he is truly touched by your concern.
