Deal With The Devil - Marvel (Pietro Maximoff aka Quicksilver ft. Loki) *AoU* Part 1
I don’t know why I had gone to him in the first place. Maybe because my curiosity was too strong, and had been building up for too long, or just because I wanted to see him, see who he was for the first time.
My mother had forbidden me to ever go near Loki, but I had done so anyway, so here I was, in one of the many houses in Asgard, to talk to the famous trickster. How I had found him was a mystery in itself, half of Asgard thought he was dead long ago. But he wasn’t.
«Well, well. Y/N, daughter of Idun, a mere demigoddess.» Loki teased, grinning towards me.
«Yeah, you know, I was planning on presenting myself.» I said, looking irritated over at Loki.
«Sorry, dear. Did I take the words out of your mouth?»
I just sighed at this, did he have to play games all the time?
When I didn’t come with a witty reply, he sighed loudly, looking as if he had given up on me.
«What can I do for you, Y/N?» His eyes were sincere, but I knew there was only a matter of time before that mischievous look would be back in his eyes again.
You could never ask a trickster for a favor without them claiming something in return, normally something dearly to you.
«I want to go to Midgard, to earth.» I spoke determined.
«To earth? Why would you want to go to that god forsaken place?» Loki said, his eyebrows furrowing at the thought.
«Because I want to meet my father.» I tried to seem calm, so not all of my nervousness would seep through and ruin everything.
«To your father huh? Tony Stark, if I am not mistaken. I like that man, witty one.» That mischievous look back in his eyes.
«So will you help me?» I asked, my voice full of hope.
«Of course, little princess.» A smile broke out in my face and I swear at that moment I could have jumped of joy, but then his last words came. «That is, if you help me with something, after your visit to earth.» He added, his grin back on his lips.
I chewed on my lip, knowing it would be something I would absolutely not like. Loki came closer to me, his hand cupping my cheek.
«Come on, it’s only one favor.» He whispered.
I looked down for a second, before looking up at him again, a determined look in my eyes.
I looked over the city. Earth was so different than home, such a different kind of beauty. Of course if you looked away from the constant smoke looming over the city like a poisonous shield.
The avengers tower stood high and proud in the middle of it all, and from where you stood on the top of a building together with Loki, it almost looked like the sun itself.
«Now how do you plan on getting inside?» Loki asked from where he stood beside me.
«I…I don’t really know.» I admitted honestly, looking over at the tower.
«You’re a demigoddess with eternal youth, a complete genius and you can’t come up with a plan on how to get into a tower that your father designed?» Loki raised his eyebrows at me, looking rather unimpressed.
«Well, do you have any good ideas?» I asked, looking over at him with raised eyebrows as well.
«In fact I have.» He grinned down at me.
«So this is the grand trickster’s amazing plan?» I asked, looking down on myself where I stood in a cleaning uniform.
«Oh, don’t mock me, little demigoddess. At least this plan will work.» Loki said from where he stood beside me with the same uniform, which was weird since I only had seen him in his Asgardian clothes up until now, and right now he looked ridiculous.
«Okay, okay, let’s get going.» I sighed, dragging with me Loki over to the elevator.
Well up in the tower, where I presumed the sleeping area was, I looked down the corridor. So far no one was in sight.
«So, we’re inside. What’s your plan now, Loki?» I asked, turning to face my companion.
«We can start off with going in that direction.» He pointed down the empty corridor.
We started walking, passing door after door, some with name tags on, some I had heard mentioned in Asgard a couple of times after Thor came back from earth.
Out of nowhere a wind passed my side, leaving behind a silver tale behind. I stopped abruptly, looking over at Loki who looked just as confused as me. The silver colored wind, or what one should call it came back again, this time towards us, but stopped just before it hit us.
In front of us stood a man, silver hair, striking blue eyes and with some tight fitting clothes on.
«You guys going to clean around here?» He asked, with a thick accent you had never heard before. Must be one of earths many accents.
«Yeah, what else would we be here for?» I asked back, trying not to sound nervous to be caught.
«Just a message from Stark, you don’t need to clean up the mess of broken stuff in my room.» My heart skipped a beat as I heard my father’s name, but I tried to hide it as much as possible, under the guy’s intense gaze on me.
«Alright.» You answered simply. Not wanting to say too much.
«You guys new? Never seen you two cleaning here.» He said, his brows furrowed.
His eyes seemed to never leave mine as he talked, so when I looked over at Loki, so he could dodge the question, the guy involuntarily looked over at him.
«We just started.»
«Ah, then sorry, I must be confusing. Pietro Maximoff’s room.» He said, smiling gently at us both.
We were about to part from silver hair aka Pietro when someone shouted to Pietro down the hall behind us. I saw Loki stiffen beside me, giving him a worried glance.
«Pietro, time for some training, buddy.» The man said from behind us, coming closer by the second. I turned around to get a look at the man, who looked like he really had been spending a few hours a day exercising.
«Alright, cap.» Pietro replied, his gaze coming back to meet mine as he said so.
Cap? Then maybe he is captain America then? I thought, my gaze still locked with Pietro’s.
«Done messing with people?» Cap said as he came up beside me and Loki, who looked rather nervous if I should say so myself.
Before Pietro could answer him back, he looked over at Loki, his eyes widening at the sight.
«Loki, what are you doing here?!»
