arguments and books
authors note: so here we are again. Second one shot, this time it´s about Loki (why are there so less fanfics about him?) + I honestly have no idea, what exactly this is about. I just started writing and this thing happened. Sorry for this messy shit, but it´s like 5 minutes till midnight and I´m more asleep than awake.
With your favorite book in your hand you walked down the long hallway. It was your time to watch Loki, the prisoner as the others (exept Thor) would call him.
Since you´ve first seen him he captured your interest. This mysterious god who was far too handsome for his own good. And everyone hated him, almost everyone. This time maybe even his own brother. Somehow, you weren´t included to this discription. You didn´t hate the trickster, in fact you actually really liked him. You found him rather understandable, no doubt, to kill innocent people wasn´t something that you would ever tolerate, but somehow you could understand, why he did it.
Holding up your ID-card so that the security guards would recognise you and allow you entrance, you entered the room. Everywhere a camera was placed. Just to make sure, Tony had said.
But that was it. Plenty of cameras, millions you thought to yourself, but no guard exept for the two infront of the door you´ve just passed.
Loki was standing right in the middle of his cell, arms crossed behind his back, starring into nothing.
“Everyday another guard.”, the god mocked. “What have I done to deserve such a thing? Are you all so desperate to see me?”, he joked. “I´m afraid I have to dissappoint you, they are quite a bit annoyed by your behaviour.”, you answered. “And that´s why they now are sending you?” His green-blue eyes were glaring daggers into your head, but you didn´t mind. You were looking for the perfect spot to sit down, read your book and ignore him. “Seems like it..”, you mumbled. Finally, you found a spot that seemed comfortable enough to spend the whole day there.
You haven´t seen him often before. ´Loki´s no-one you want to meet´ one of your fellow team mates had told you. Oh, how wrong they had been. What exactly it was that catched your interest? You didn´t know, but somehow his aura was enchanting. Somehow, you loved being around him, so you agreed to take guard more often. Sure, the others were quite a bit curious why on earth you would spend your spare-time with the god of mischief himself, but they were far more pleased that neither of them had to do it, so they wouldn´t spend a second thought on it.
“What exactly are you reading?”, his voice echoed trough the blank room. “Hm?” You looked up slightly at the man in the cell, not really remembering what he said. Loki rolled his eyes, but asked again: “Your book, I want to know what it is that you are reading.” He came to an halt and looked at you. “The light between oceans.”, you answered. The raven haired man scoffed and lifted an eyebrow. “What in Odin´s name is that about?” “It´s actually a quite beautiful story about a couple. The man, Tom, he´s a lighthouse keeper, living on a small island with his wife Izzy, one day they find a boat with a dead man and a baby and-”, but you couldn´t finish, as you got interrupted by Loki, “Only midgardians could write a whole book about things that doesn´t matter.”, he sneered. “Well for me it does matter. There are so many things happening almost everyday somewhere on this planet and a beautiful, yet painful story as this one here,”, you held up the book so that Loki could see the cover, “this one is a pure gem. My favorite book by far and a outstanding story about love and how it clearly is not an easy subject.” “Love is for those who are weak.” This statement actually made you smile. “I really do think, that even you, the great Loki, god of mischief, is desperate to find his one. You can try tell me otherwise, but as you might already know I´m quite stubborn and I believe in love, that´s why I´ve got to be going now, as I´m having a date. You´re brother´s about to guard you, maybe you wanna have a discussion about love with him. See you later Mr. love-is-for-the-weak.”, you grinned at him mischievously and winked, then placed the book right infront of his cell and said: “I´ll ask Thor to give it to you, maybe you wanna read it, at least if you do want to understand our weakness.”
The next time you were on guard, Loki seemed different. When you entered the room he was actually looking straight into your [E/C] eyes. Was that regret dancing in his?
As you stepped closer to his cell he let his eyes wander up and down your body, making you feel a bit uncomfortable. “I´ve read it.”, his small voice piped. A little shocked, your eyes widened. “You what?”
“I´ve read it.”, he repeated, this time more confident. “That.. It´s.. Thank you.” A small smile appeared on your face. “But why?” “Because I could see the passion in your eyes when you talked about it, it´s quite a long time ago, that I saw such a thing. I wanted to know, why you are so passionate about it. The book is.. It´s alright, I guess.”, he finally admitted. That probably was the highest of compliments you would ever hear leaving his mouth. “I´m glad you read it.”
There was a long time of silence, until Loki spoke up again. “How was your date?”
You couldn´t help but laught, never in your life you would have thought to talk about your love life with someone like Loki. “He was a jerk. Zero interest in anything other than trains. And believe me, not even I can talk as passionatly about something as much as he did.” The both of you laughed, the first time you could actually see him smile a warm smile, other than the ones he showed everyone.
And from this time on, the both of you started to form a friendship, that neither of you would ever have thought of.
