So since it is Thanksgiving is here in the United States this Thursday, I am not posting a story that day, sorry to disappoint. but I do have the next installment of Destiny Has Other Plans posting on Saturday.
Here is the masterlist so you can catch up.
A note is that after Saturday, I am putting the story on a planned hiatus for December. This has been a plan so that I can post holiday fics in December. The story is coming back and I might even end up posting it in December depending on my mood. The next chapter will be posted on January 2, 2021.
AS ALWAYS, TAGLISTS ARE OPEN! LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT TO BE TAGGED ON THE STORY OR ADDED TO ANY OF MY PERMANENT LISTS.
The annoying chime of JARVIS disturbed Loki’s peaceful lunch within the confines of his apartment. Over the past year, he curated a living space he enjoyed with artwork and textiles that brought him joy. What he didn’t enjoy were the intrusions by Stark’s electronic butler.
“Master Loki. There’s a young woman in the lobby asking to see you.”
Loki placed his utensils down. “Did she give a reason?”
“It is of a personal nature.”
Loki waved his hand in the air. “Send her away. Tell her I’m indisposed.”
Loki returned to his lunch. It was probably one of the women he slept with looking for a serious relationship, he mused. That was one thing Loki was not interested in. Lust, not love, ruled his heart these days. And he had no intentions of changing his ways anytime soon.
The next morning JARVIS chimed again, at the hour of 7 a.m. well before Loki woke up on days where he wasn’t due anywhere.
“Master Loki, the woman is back. She is most insistent she needs to speak with you.”
Loki groaned, rolling onto his back. “Leave me be!”
“Should I send her away?”
“Yes.” Loki grabbed the pillow and covered his head, falling back asleep.
The morning wake up call was gone and forgotten as soon as Loki got going for this day. Until he headed out that evening, walking through the empty lobby of Avengers Towers on his way to hopefully meet a new conquest.
“LOKI!” A female voice called out.
Loki turned to see a young woman step out from behind a pillar. Her short, light brown hair and blue eyes vaguely familiar.
“The building’s been closed for hours. How are you even still here?”
“I hid in a supply closet.”
“I shall tell Stark his security is lacking.” He turned his attention to the girl. “You need to leave.”
“No,” She pressed her hand against his chest. “I need to talk to you. It’s important.”
Her composure crumbled. Loki only then noticed the tears in her eyes and the envelope in her hands.
“You don’t remember me, do you?” she muttered. “Of course not. Why would you? Here.” She shoved the envelope in his hand. “I thought you had a right to know.” She walked away, shoulders shaking. “And in case you fucking care, my name is Alexis, ass!”
