Part 1 – Chapter 10
I made my way determinedly to Loki’s chambers the next morning, hoping he was sober enough (which I expected him to be, as Aesir could process alcohol just as well as they could handle it) to comprehend my displeasure with him. I had been irate upon waking that morning, and made even more irritable at having only gotten a few hours of sleep.
I clenched my fists just thinking about it as I walked, still hearing him say that to me, hearing him shout to half the tavern in his drunkenness that soon he’d have his face between my legs. Feeling his lips on mine, his tongue in my mouth, and how I had nearly choked on the taste, the stink, of the mead he’d nearly drowned himself in.
