Who: Sif and Thor When: Tuesday afternoon, January 31, 2012 Where: Her boarding house Warnings/rating: none
The last few months had been relatively uneventful. Apart from Loki being himself, Sif was feeling very good at being in the city. Things between her and Thor were only getting better by the day and it didn't take a lot of time for her to make a decision.
She sat at the table, looking through the listings for apartment rentals. It was time they either lived together here or they hightailed it out of there and let someone else take care of the residents. Honestly, she was more for the latter but she'd have to see what Thor had to say.
Thor had kept an eye on Sif since Loki interfered, but in all honesty she was a warrior woman on her own. She was capable of taking care of herself. She'd always been more than just a housewife. Over the last few months they were learning each other all over again, but each day wait became more herself. A goddess, not a simpleton among the rest of the population.
He'd just stuffed a sandwich into his mouth when he polled more food onto the table. One thing had never changed, his appetite. He was also heavily in love with the deli ham she'd picked up that weekend. In two days he was down to the last slice.
Sif flipped the page and before she started to scan the listings said, "You know, I don't have an endless supply of food." She gave him a playful look, even if she was very serious. She could always keep going to the store but there were only so many trips one could make in a week before it got really old.
Then she set the paper down, crossed her hands and leaned a little into the table. "Do you want to move in, or find our own place and find a new land lord for the boarding house?" It was the first time she had brought it up, but it had been on her mind lately.
Thor couldn't help the pit of his stomach or the fact that it hardly seemed full throughout the day. It could be very cumbersome at times. Usually when the milk went missing, cereal all gone and bread down to one slice there was no question as to who had devoured all of it. "Sorry," he said in a half chuckle.
Licking off his thumb as he swallowed that monstrous mouthful he pulled the paper she'd been looking over towards him. "You saying you want to move in with me," he leaned back in his chair with his arms held back behind his head. "That's a big step." His mouth spread wide in a full grin. "I'm in." He perked a brow with a boyish enthusiasm.
A little mmhmm issued from her lips as she watched him for a moment. She would always take care of him, no matter what, but they also didn't have a fortune like in the old days. Nor did they have all those connections. She was fairly certain that if Odin was around they would never have money troubles.
"Of course you are. We've only been married the better part of our lives." It just didn't seem right living apart, even if it was in the same building. "But should we leave the boarding house?"
Thor wasn't going to make Sif's mind up for her, but he sure as hell would have a hand in it. She was a strong woman, still his Sif. "I think you are above these people." Granted they were not the strong entities of the past, but with the better part of her memories back, there was no reason she should be a servant to others. "I think we need a place of our own." Tenants brought in good money, they kept the place busy, but they did little to give Thor time alone with Sif. Even Loki had slipped in and had a free moment with her, that was enough to make him rake his teeth against each other.
He stuck a toothpick in his mouth, wiggling it between his teeth while she devised an answer.
Although he wouldn't ultimately make the decision for her, Thor's opinion on the matter was very important. And it also weighed heavily on her decision. She could easily stay there and continue her current living conditions and help these mortals. However, he did have a point. Maybe they were no longer the gods of old, of power and virtue, but she was still a goddess to be loved and respected. Maybe they didn't need to tell the world who they were, but it was still who she was.
She nodded after a good few minutes of quiet consideration as she weighed her options. "I will sell the building. I think it's time we were on our own like the old days," she said with a smile.
