*sly smile* some nerve you have there..
She ran faster than a bullet to her king's arms. "Fuckdamn. Oh my God, hello. Hello." Almost weeping, but holding herself, she smiled.
Hello yourself, dear. How do you fair?
*races to his side, kneeling at his feet* My lord! Loki! *takes his hand and kisses it* You've returned! I was so worried, so afraid...
You need not be, pet! I am well, I swear on the nine.
*wanders in through the open door, reading a map. Glances up, noticing you for the first time in forever* "Loki?" *Runs forward, hurrying up the steps to embrace you* "Please, tell me I'm not dreaming!"
You’re not dreaming, I am as real as you want me to be.
Subjects! Your king demands attention!
The dim light of the galaxy-filled sky shone in through the wall of glass - the only source of light in the room. He is alone.
Staring out through the window, wondering what it would be like to fall in again, to have that moment of regret, followed by nothingness. In a severe state of melancholy, it is almost sublime.
Moonlight covered him, although he hangs his head, hands running through his disheveled hair, perched in the middle of the bed. Every emotion that he has felt these past two months comes to him, crashing over him. For the most part, sorrow, for his own soul.
The room is in total silence, until he mutters what he finally admits to himself aloud.
“I am not worthy”.
My dear ones. I understand your worry, due to my absence for the last few weeks. I-I was not myself that.. My existence is not exactly crystal-clear, it’s a shadow. A literal shadow. I guess you Midgardians could say that I was in a ‘dark place’, and found it excruciating to get out.
I am truly sorry for leaving you all, it is for you that I returned.
Keep my in the light, do that for me?
"Thank you, my lord. It means the world that you'd help me. It's important that I find them.. if it's possible to find them," she said, a ghost of a smile on her face. "I'd allow you to do anything. They hold.. well.." She sighed. "To be truthful, I don't know. They haven't been in lycan hands for so long. But they hold the cure I need to keep my humanity." She stopped and looked at him. "My Loki... are you alright? Know that I am here. Always. My love and allegiance shall not falter."
To tell the truth, no, I am not okay. Look at me.
I am a monster.
She shook her head, brushing a soft kiss to his cheek. "I'll be fine, trust me." Jen nodded a bit just to convince him of her words. "I'm grateful to be in your company and that's the greatest thing for you to give."
If you ever need anything..
Forgive me for my absence, Midgardian illnesses are new to me. I
am afraid I have not been steady enough to receive guests these past weeks. It is near over, I shall return within the week, my dear subjects…
