Loki had promised to call Pepper after work but he didn't, there was a report on the news about an explosion, "It is believed a faulty speaker system was the cause of the explosion inside the ice cream store, two employees and one customer were harmed and have been taken to the hospital for treatment." the man on the report said.
Pepper looked up from his desk. That place was familiar, but, because of the blast, he couldn’t make it out. His eyes glued to the screen.
“Loki,” he dropped everything he was doing and went straight to the hospital, only they wouldn’t let him in because he wasn’t family. “But…he’s,” Pepper blurted out the first thing he could think of, “He’s my fiance’.” They’d have to let him in now.
