The day had started out perfect. She'd woken up to another picture Loki sent her on the location he was at. He was coming soon. So, she had decided to make breakfast for everyone. She had plans to make Loki a cake too. But it was evident during breakfast that something had changed. She was quiet and slightly reserved, even after doing the dishes.
She'd returned to her and Loki's room and spent a good portion of the day there. No one really knew about her relationship with Loki. People only knew what they showed. And that was that Darcy was always smiling, eyes filled with love when she looked at Loki. Only Thor saw this. A few knew because of the past Darcy.
But after another fight with Loki, she'd put this fight on the top 5 of their constant fight. It was different, he was purposely being cruel to her. And a lot of what he said had her crying in the privacy of their room. But there was something he said, that she wasn't sure she knew what it meant, so she came out of the room and made her way to Thor's door. A single knock was given. Her long hair was in a messy bun and she wor one of Loki's old green tunics that looked like a dress.
But it was visible red lining in her eyes and the tip of her nose was red. A clear sign she'd been crying. But she tried to straighten herself as she waited for Thor to open.
He had been pouring over old maps that he'd found in his mother's libraries, trying to see if there was any way around the bifrost, maybe a back entrance to the realms but it was a fruitless search.
Regardless, it was a task, one to keep his mind occupied until the knock of the door. Opening it, he was surprised to see a red-eyed Darcy. He'd been starting to get a bit worried. His brother's prolonged absence had Darcy's moods up and down, and if he was honest, it was a little unsettling. Lately, all he wanted was calm. "Darcy," he said gently, inviting her in. "Are you well? Can I seek you something?"
Once Thor opened, and she took notice of the way he looked at her, it made her realize just how much of a mess she really looked. Trying to straighten herself up as she gave Thor a smile. "I'm fine." Really, the words should be put on her tombstone. It was becoming a phrase she said daily now. "I wanted to ask... What's an Aesir?" It was something Loki had said in their argument. He said he'd pined after one for so long back on Asgard, so she was curious on what exactly an Aesir was.
Still, she held that bright smile as she looked up at Thor once in his room. Loki had hung up on her, again. Which gave her time to cry, and curiosity got the best of her now.
"An Aesir?" Thor repeated, wondering why the name of their species would cause her such distress. "Uh, it is what I am, what Loki is. It is, in your mythology, the name for the Old Gods. Those of us in Asgard who frequented the bifrost, and traveled to Midgard all those centuries ago."
He quirked a lip, and couldn't help himself. "You did not believe that we are human, did you? I admit, there are several similarities, but the Aesir are long-lived and powerful."
Darcy listened. So... Loki wanted someone like him, someone who wasn't weak or fragile. Even with her thoughts, she kept her smile towards Thor. "Ah, so in other words, it's a fancy term for a God. Gotcha."Her head nodded, but the look on her face was nothing like the sweet and bubbly tone she was giving Thor. "Oh, I baked a cake for Loki... So please don't devour it." She added with a bright smile.
Thor shook his head. "No, because as I'm so commonly reminded: I am not a God." He looked away for a moment, trying to make sense of how to explain.
He really was not the most efficient storyteller.
"It is like here on Midgard," he finally said. "There are many people and you have defined them a certain way. American. Canadian." He shrugged. "I am Aesir. The Vanir are also considered Gods. There are dwarves. Elves."
And then he noticed the second thing she said. "On my honor, I will not touch my brother's cake." Even if the cake sounded delicious.
"But it's someone like you, right? Someone, not Midgardian?" She asked as she smiled when he said he wouldn't touch the cake. "Promise, I'll make cupcakes this week." She said as she nodded her head once more. She did note his description as she poked his chest.
"Well, you're a God in my book." She said smiling brightly.
Cupcakes were his favorites. Something to look forward to. Darcy always baked the best items. He nodded with a grin. "Why do you ask, Darcy? Are you interested in my people's history?"
When Thor asked why and allowed her to give a cover story she nodded her head. "Yup! I'm looking into learning all about Asgard and your laws and language and just everything." She said happily, which wasn't a lie. She was doing that already. She just didn't want Thor to know the real reason she was asking about Aesirs. "Thor... you know you can talk to me about things right?" She said looking at him. " I mean... I noticed you've been kinda keeping to your room since I've been here." She said making a light face.
"Did... I do something wrong? Is it because Loki didn't run it by you and Frigga first about me moving in?" She wasn't sure, but with her fight with Loki, Darcy just didn't want to make anyone uncomfortable around her. Especially not Thor.
So she had moved in. Thor wasn't sure about that, which is why he thought it best to give her her space. "My apologies," he said, giving her a small bow. "I was not aware I was acting out of sorts." Lies, of course. He had been so scattered lately, unable to shut his mind off, that any extra noise, any distraction derailed him.
It wasn't fair to her.
"You have done nothing wrong. You have a large personality, which I enjoy on most days. It's more than I tend to have periods of time where I need to be myself. I have much on my mind," he explained. "These are matters you need not worry about, but Jane did mention I should perhaps not segregate myself in my rooms."
"So everyone's on edge." She said nothing thinking. A heavy sigh escaped her lips as she rubbed the bridge of her nose. It's her fault, she should have noticed. Instead, she'd been so wrapped up on helping Loki, she forgot to notice her other friends needed her help too. Another heavy sigh escaped her for the moment "I'm sorry... I didn't realize you were under stress.. I've been so wrapped up in trying to help Lo--" She stopped as she exhaled deeply. But she came to give Thor a tight hug.
He hadn't expected the hug, although in a way he should have. Darcy was always very demonstrative. After a moment, he brought his arms around her and hugged her back before stepping away gently. No matter that he knew Darcy for longer than Loki, this was still Loki's ladylove and Thor did not want to cause any miscommunications.
"Focus your attention on my brother," he said with a smile. "I am not so downtrodden that I will not recover. Loki's mirth is long-rooted, and will need a substantial amount of love and understanding." He hesitated. "I worry for my brother more than anyone else."
When the hug was over with, she smiled. "I know he does... Just sometimes...." She bites her lower lip and shook her head as she smiled at Thor once more. "He's not as bad as he thinks he is, ya know." She said smiling even brighter. "He's very sweet and passionate, romantic, funny." She gave a genuine smile when thinking about all the good qualities Loki had, but even though her smile, she let a tear trail down before cleaning her face off.
"In case you didn't know, I love your brother"
"And Loki adores you," Thor responded solemnly. That much was true. As to the ups and downs (so many ups and downs), Thor had a problem wrapping his head around it.
That being said, the only real relationship he'd ever had was vastly different in nature. Probably due to the fact that neither Jane nor himself were prone to mercurial behavior.
"You two will find your rhythm and be better for it," he announced with confidence. "I truly believe that."
Darcy smiled. "Oh no no, you don't have to worry about me and Loki, we're fine." She said with another bright smile on her face. "I mean we have our moments like any other relationship, but we're fine." She said with a smile. She had binded herself to Loki a few nights ago, which from what he said was a step away from marriage, but she couldn't tell anyone. No one could know about their relationship. It was a lot to deal with, but she could handle it.
"Jane will come around. Loki says it's fate you two be together." She said with a firm nod of her head. If they were fated to be together, then so were Jane and Thor.
Thor choked a little on that but coughed to try to cover it up. There went the confidence as he started to feel uncomfortable. "We're friends," he stated, giving her a pointed look.
"Even friends fall in love." She said with a smile. But with a glance to her phone, she sighed deeply for the moment. "I better get back to the room. Kinda tired." That was a lie, it was her fighting with Loki continuing and she didn't want Thor to see her expressions.
Thor didn't miss the look on Darcy's face but he wouldn't press. Her business was her own, and truthfully, he didn't want to hear about Jane and love.
It was getting to where he truly felt friends was their fate.
"Perhaps we could watch a movie later," he offered. "I have recently discovered an interesting set of movies called 'Toy Story'. Would you like to join me?"
"Yeah, maybe we'll see. I might just crash for the night. But tomorrow we can definitely watch it." She said with a bright smile over her features as she gave him one final hug before hurrying off to her room.
