Warnings- FLUFF SO MUCH FLUFF
It was about 1:00 in the morning, and you were lying on your bed in the Avengers tower. It was summer, and the past several days had been extremely hot, including the nights. You tossed and turned agitatedly because the heat was making it impossible to sleep. The tower had a minor power surge two days ago due to one of Bruce’s experiments, which for some odd reason had made the air conditioning system throughout the tower to be rendered useless. This meant your second restless night in a row.
“Damn it” you whispered, as you got out of bed and quietly opened your bedroom door to get something to drink. You tiptoed down the hall until you noticed that one of the bedroom lights was on, as you could see under the door. You tried to remember whose room this was until you realised it was Loki’s. Thor had brought him to the tower to make amends and even though most of them weren’t so pleased about it, you all got along tolerably. You were reasonably close to Loki more than most. You talked to him quite often and also leant him books from time to time.
You softly knocked on the door hoping he was awake.
“Go away Thor, I’m not planning on sleeping” he said bluntly.
“Actually, It’s Y/N” you responded.
A moment of silence passed before the door opened and Loki was standing there, still in his usual clothes with a book face down and open on his neat bed.
“Why are you awake?” he asked, slightly concerned.
“It’s really hot and I usually can’t sleep anyway, so the past couple of nights have been just fabulous” you responded, looking right into his blue eyes “I just saw your light on and I wanted to know why you were still awake” you added.
“Well I was just reading, I don’t sleep much either. Do you want to come in?” he asked. You nodded lightly as you walked in and sat on the bed. Loki felt awkward about sitting next to you, so he just floated awkwardly around the room instead, picking up random items and glancing at the floor.
“Is the heat bothering you too?” you asked, in order to break the awkward silence.
“No, I’m a frost giant you see. The heat doesn’t bother me at all” You looked at him and smiled lightly.
“That’s lucky in this weather” you responded as you discreetly looked at the cover of the book on the bed.
“Divergent” was on the cover. You smiled to yourself and looked back at Loki.
“It’s much cooler in here than my room though” you said, watching Loki walk aimlessly around the room.
“Do you want to stay in here?” he asked.
“Are you sure?”
“Of course, you give me books so I might as well give you a slightly more tolerable place to sleep. I must also talk to Stark about how your room is far too small, it bothers me as I assume it bothers you”
You smiled at him and lied on the bed. Loki turned off the big light in the room so there was only one small reading lamp in the corner of the room, which is where Loki sat after he grabbed his book.
“You’re really not going to sleep at all?” you asked quietly.
“Not at all, I don’t mind” he said before he hesitated slightly. “Nightmares you see” he added, looking down at the floor.
“Oh, I see” you say as you bury your head into the pillow. A few moments pass before you get up and walk over to where Loki was sitting.
“Don’t you wish to sleep?” he asked as he lifted his head up from his book to look at you.
“Nope, I can stay up for a while longer, If that’s alright with you?” you respond.
“Absolutely” he says, smirking a little.
You leaned your head on Loki’s shoulder and Loki stiffened at the contact.
“You’re so cold!” you say as you touch his hand with awe. Loki chuckles and looks down at his hand thoughtfully.
“One of the perks of being a frost giant” he says, still looking down at his hand. You smiled at him and continued t rest you head on his shoulder and lean closer and closer into him as time went by. Loki didn’t mind though, he would never say this but he always enjoyed your company.
Later that morning at about 9:00, Thor sat with the other avengers eating breakfast. Everyone was talking about usual topics before Tony noticed two people were missing.
“Where’s reindeer games and Y/N?” Tony asked. The rest of the avengers looked at him thoughtfully.
“Y/N likes to sleep in, so I wouldn’t worry too much about them” Natasha said before she took a bite of her food.
“I will check on my brother” Thor says as he stands up and walks down the hall. He stands in front of Loki’s door and knocks a few times.
“Loki?” he asked, slightly concerned. Thor decides to open the door ever so slightly, and grins when he sees his brother.
You and Loki were on the floor of the room dead asleep, with your book closed and on the floor beside you. You were resting your head on his chest and Loki had his hand almost protectively on your head. You were both breathing peacefully and didn’t stir. Thor slowly closed the door and walked down the hall still smiling.
“He’s still asleep” he responded as he sat down at the table, smiling for the rest of the day.
