When Octavia and Loki woke up, it took them several minutes to grasp, and remember what had happened the night before. Loki was the first to stir, and sat up to collect himself.
Everything was still kind of fuzzy.
“What happened last night?” she groaned, rolling over. Why was she so damn sore?
Loki rubbed his temple; he had a headache. “Not sure, give me a minute.” Think, Loki. What did you do yesterday?
Octavia rose up and realized she wasn’t wearing any clothes. “Uh, Loki. Why am I naked?” Loki looked at her and then raised the blankets to discover that he too, was nude. “Are you seriously naked too?!” she gasped.
“So it appears.” THINK, LOKI! Okay, there was the box. The box that had the seeds, and then there was-
“Oh, Norns.” Loki was remembering now; it was all coming back to him, all at once. His eyes grew wide and his heart dropped when he realized everything that he had said to her.
I told her I loved her!? LOKI, you idiot! She hates you!
“Oh, my god!” Apparently, Loki wasn’t the only one to realize what had happened between them last night. Octavia wanted to crawl into a hole right now. She had told Loki she loved him! She fucking told him SHE LOVED HIM! She felt like she was going to be sick.
Why? Everything was fine, why did she have to go and ruin it!?
Loki swallowed thickly. He wanted to get up. He wanted to run out of the room, but he couldn’t move; he was frozen in place. How much of what she said had been the truth? Was it the mushrooms, making her say all those things, or had she meant it? He wanted to ask her, but he was too scared. She wanted to ask him, but feared the worst.
What if he didn’t mean it? What if she was setting herself up for failure?
So they just sat there silently, for a long time.
“Where did you get those?” Octavia finally asked. She had been wanting to say something for over an hour, and had finally mustered the courage to at least ask where he got the damn drugs from!
“I found a box yesterday.” he began, a lot smoother than he had expected. “On the porch. There were seeds in it too.” he looked at her for a moment. “We can plant a garden.”
“Really?” She wrapped the blanket around her and crawled closer to him. He hasn’t run away yet…. “What kind of seeds?”
Loki forced himself to look away from her, staring straight ahead of him. She was so beautiful with her wild, ’I’ve clearly been fucked,’ hair. She was also naked under that blanket… “Carrots, potatoes, corn, lettuce.” he shrugged. “There are at least ten different types.” That’s it. Just avoid last night and talk about food instead….
Octavia nodded, then sighed. “So, the box was just sitting there, and you chose to feed me ‘magic mushrooms’ you found in it?” she declared, more surprised than angry.
“I knew what they were!” Loki stressed. “I would never give you something that would harm you.” That wasn’t a lie.
“I also ate some beforehand.” He still wanted to be sure; just in case…
“Obviously.” she giggled, remembering how silly Loki had been. If she hadn’t been so angry that the time, she may have even noticed that the mushrooms had already kicked in by the time he was shoving the rest of them into her mouth. It wasn’t like him to randomly shove things in her mouth.
Well, unless it was his cock.
“Did you really turn blue?”
Loki clenched his jaw and closed his eyes for a moment. “Apparently.” Wow, he really was fucked up last night.
“Is that what you really look like?” Octavia asked, not missing the way Loki tensed up at her question.
“Yes.” he muttered. “I’m aware I’m repulsive.” he spat, angry at himself now. Why did he do that? He had never willingly shown his true form to anyone; even if he claimed he would have, he really wouldn’t have.
“Well, I thought you were beautiful.” she proclaimed. “The markings on your body were pretty cool too.”
“Sigils.” he informed her, less tense now. She wasn’t repulsed by him?
“Are they…everywhere?” She eyed him up and down and Loki chuckled.
“Yes, even down there.” He knew what she was really asking.
“Cool.” she smirked, getting some naughty ideas.
“So, do you usually get high on mushrooms?” she questioned, raising a brow.
Loki sighed and shook his head. “I just wanted to have some fun.” he shrugged. “I didn’t know that-” He stopped, realizing he was starting a conversation he wasn’t sure he was ready to have.
“I don’t regret sleeping with you, if that’s what you’re worried about.” Octavia assured him. “It also isn’t like I haven’t fucked you plenty of times before.”
Loki chuckled. “True.” Maybe she didn’t hate him as much as he thought?
“I’ve also been trying to get you to fuck me for two weeks.” Well, she might as well just say it.
Loki snapped his head towards her, with a confused expression on his face. “What? When!”
“Well, there was that one time I asked you if we could do something else, and you thought I meant chase me around. If you would have just LOOKED at me, you would have figured it out, but you had your damn nose in a book.
And then there was that time I asked you to rub my shoulder that didn’t really hurt and I sat there moaning like a dumb ass, and then you ran away to the bathroom.”
“You were doing that on purpose?!” FUCK!
“Duh!” she exclaimed. Why are men so oblivious to everything? “I finally just gave up. Why do you think I’ve been so pissy lately? I’ve been horny and frustrated with your ass, because you notice every detail of everything, except for when I’m trying to get you to sleep with me!”
Loki’s mouth dropped open. He could have been having sex, this entire fucking time? “How-” Did he really want to go down this road? Fuck it. “What you said to me last night.” He saw her eyes widen. “Did you…I mean…did you mean it?” he choked.
Octavia started fidgeting around and twiddling her fingers. She broke eye contact and looked down at the bed, biting her bottom lip. Well, I guess she didn’t… Loki assumed her reaction right now was regret, not embarrassment.
“I see.” Loki felt his heart break. He’d allowed himself to be vulnerable. He’d allowed himself to fall in love with her. Even after he told himself he wouldn’t. He swore he wouldn’t let her get to him, that he wouldn’t fall for her-but he had failed.
Loki had fallen in love with a mortal, and now his chest ached. He had forgotten how painful heartbreak was. Octavia didn’t love him; she just loved to fuck him.
It shouldn’t have been a surprise that she was just like the rest of them. He was a fool to think anyone could actually love him.
“I meant it.” she muttered, almost in tears. She hadn’t noticed Loki’s face since she was too busy staring at her hands. Her heart was in her stomach now. She didn’t believe Loki actually meant it when he had said he loved her too. He was just high, in the moment. There was no way-
“What?” Loki gasped, and placed his hand on her chin, forcing her to look at him. “Did you just say you meant it?” She swallowed, nodding. Her tears were also falling freely now. Loki’s heart was racing. She…she loved him back?
“I know you didn’t mean it, so you don’t have to-” she started to say, but Loki had already broken her off with a kiss, wrapping his arms around her waist to pull her on top of him. Her arms went around his neck and she laced her hands into his hair as he kissed her hungrily. She couldn’t believe it; he had meant it. Loki loved her too. “Loki?” she gasped, when she had to break away for air. “Is this really happening?”
“Yes, my love. This is really happening.”
Heimdall was quite proud of himself. Though, he decided to keep an eye on Thor for a while since it looked like Loki and Octavia needed the privacy. He spied on them more often than not, but when it came to those moments he’d much rather not watch.
He wasn’t a pervert. Cupid maybe, but not a pervert.
Finally! He thought to himself. He had half expected Loki to bolt out the door the moment he realized what had happened, but he hadn’t. They had acted like adults and talked it out. Good. He really didn’t want to have to beat it into their skulls. He would have tied them in a room together if it would have come down to it; force them to talk about their feelings. Thankfully, the rope and plan B, was no longer necessary.
Although, now he had to inform the Alfather about this new development. Perhaps he would wait a few days; Odin didn’t need to know right away did he? It wasn’t like he planned to get them out, he was merely toying with them. Odin had been acting so odd. One moment, it was as if he cared, the next he was ranting about how much he really didn’t care.
Heimdall sighed, knowing damn well he had to tell him, and now. If he found out otherwise it might not go over so well. He would definitely leave out the part where he sent the box of seeds and special mushrooms, and played matchmaker.
Odin didn’t need to know everything.
