You were wide-awake, not able to sleep. Too many thoughts ran through your mind, and not the good ones unfortunately. You turned in your bed, only to find Loki lying next to you.
“Loki for god’s sake what are you doing here.” You asked, looking at his relaxed face. He was sleeping, and you let him. It didn’t happen often, him sleeping. You ran a hand through his hair, and realized how surprisingly soft it actually was.
“(Y/N)…” Loki whispered, taking your hand in his. He opened his eyes, looking into yours. Even in darkness, you could see how green his eyes were. You noticed the tears in his eyes, and moved closer to him. You wrapped your free arm around him, and squeezed his hand. He smiled lightly, but it disappeared again.
“I’m sorry…,” he whispered, face buried in your neck. You tightened your grip around him.
“You have nothing to be sorry about.” You whispered into his hair. You felt his body shaking against yours, tears running down his face. He let go of your hand and wrapped his arms around you, wanting to be save. You laid a hand on the back of his neck, gently playing with his black hair.
And so you laid there. In silence, holding each other. It was the first time ever Loki had shown the weaker, broken side of himself. Not only to you, but also in general. You were the first to see him like that. And you felt honored. He trusted you with this. He trusted you more than he trusted anyone else.
“Are you awake?” he asked, still shaking a little.
“Yes.” You answered. He pulled away, looking into your eyes, trying to fake a smile. of course you saw through it.
“I-I want you to know that, I’m grateful that you, you-“
“I will always be here for you” you interrupted him. He smiled, a real smile, and you couldn’t help but join him. He pulled you close to him, your head resting on his bare, strong chest. You felt his breathing, his heartbeat. He was with you. You were his, and he was yours. And you loved it.
“I love you (Y/N).” he whispered into the air, thinking you were asleep. “I love you so much. I just, I’m sorry that I’m such a mess. Thank you for being here, darling. I, I really appreciate it. I love you (Y/N).” tears filled your eyes, and you tried to keep quiet, failing.
“I love you too Loki.”
