why must i live in the middle of nowhere

Warning: None (Ben curses, what’s new?)

Word Count: 5.1K+

It had been over a whole day, almost thirty hours to be exact, since you had last spoken to Ben. The entire day of Sunday was spent busying yourself with things you really didn’t need to do–spending hours cleaning your room, going over your homework twice, going for a morning and afternoon jog, and many other things your mom couldn’t seem to understand.

“Me?” You cry. “Why?!”

“I can’t tell you yet.” Nat says slowly, in a calming voice.

“LIKE HELL YOU CAN’T.” You shout jumping out of your chair.

“Sit DOWN.” Nat says firmly, her eyes flicking between you and the mirror. You take a breath and sit down, glaring at Nat silently, your arms crossed in defiance.

“I want to leave.” You mutter grumpily.

Title: Fallen Angels
Chapter 3: After – “Like gold to airy thinness beat”
This chapter returns to the “present,” picking up the conversation that was interrupted by the flashback of chapter 2.
Rating: M for language and cartoon violence (as they say at the movies); there may or may not be salaciousness later, depending on how the story develops.

Characters: Loki and Sigyn
Description: a post-apocalyptic, MCU-Norse mythos mash-up; science fiction/fantasy
External validation and constructive criticism actively and shamelessly encouraged. I have tried to tag everyone that asked, but not all of them are working :( I will keep trying.
Thank you again and again (and again), @icybluepenguin​​, for your help and encouragement and editing. This story is vastly better for your help.

Ch. 1: Walking with unblest feet;
Ch. 2: “I struck the board and cry’d, No more.”

Ch. 4 here

She got an odd smile on her face that opened up the ache in his chest once more. “I will tell you my story, if you tell me who I remind you of.”

Why had he not felt it — or seen it?

He took a deep breath as he opened up the discussion, “Your turn. How did you end up in Wy?”

“Hum, yes. I did promise an explanation, didn’t I?”

Loki poured her another cup of tea, while Stella thought how to begin.

“The old lady Alric mentioned is Elsbeth, a wise woman who lives in Wy.”

Loki nodded. “I know her. Well, I know of her.”

“Last fall she was returning from the coast — on the same errand I was on just now, in fact — and she found me.”

“Found you?”
