NOTES: Sorry I have not posted in a few days, I had a bit of a block as there was another piece clogging my mind, but now that I have done, I have written a couple of the next chapters for this. Enjoy.
Loki watched Lagertha for her reaction, anxious to what her response would be, to his surprise, she did not react, in any manner. She simply stood there, half kneeling from helping him onto the bed to sit, staring blankly at him with her mouth agape. “I apologise, I should not have said that, I had no right. I understand you could never…” Loki did not get to finish his sentence as Lagertha leant forward and gently pressed her lips onto his. All thoughts left his mind as Loki carefully brought his hand to her face, caressing her cheek as he deepened the kiss, embracing the feel of her warm lips against his own.
NOTES: I apologise for not having something up the past few days. Internet access is very limited and sporadic at the moment due to stormy weather. So more as soon as I can.
Lagertha spent the early evening making a meal as usual. Her arms ached from her bruises, and she felt as though if she ever had but two moments to fall asleep, she would be at risk of never again rising.
Loki was nowhere to be seen for the most part, only for the occasional noise drifting through the palace alerting her to his being close by. She found herself humming the song again to herself unintentionally that had led to their talk in the morning, which meant she could not but think of all that had happened in such a short time. When the food was left to cook, she tidied the kitchen and when finally it was cooked, she took it by tray to Loki, who she knew would be hungry upstairs.
She placed the tray on the usual table and turned to knock at his door when a thought came to her. There was no longer any usable surface within his chambers for Loki to eat on. She was considering how to best rectify the issue when she heard a noise from the room opposite which she now knew to be Thor’s. As another noise came from within, she slowly made her way over, listening cautiously. Then the door opened suddenly, causing her to fall backwards in shock.
“What in the realms have you done Loki?” Thor growled as Loki pulled back, colliding with the far wall, guilt and horror shook him, a heavy feeling pounded at the end of his stomach at the wound he had unintentionally inflicted on Lagertha.
“This is not Loki’s doing.” Lagertha gasped as she clutched her excruciating arm. “It is yours!” she glared at Thor as she spoke.
“You are suffering from Frost Giant burns; that is a text book example of such, and is only capable of being inflicted by a Frost Giant.” Thor argued, looking to Loki when he mentioned Frost Giants.
