"Flora!" said Sif as she was knocking on Flora's bedroom door, "It's time to get up."
"I'm getting up. I'll be there soon." Flora answered back.
Flora got up from her chair and walked towards the curtains on her window. She opened them up and she was blinded by the daylight. Such a lovely day,she thought.
As Flora began to change from her sleeping clothes to her day time clothes, the phone on her desk began to ring. She walked to the desk and gently lifted up the phone. "Hello?"
"Flora, hello. It's Loki."
Flora heart skipped a beat. He actually remembered my name.
"Oh. Hi!" she said. She felt her cheeks going warm.
"Haha. Good morning, my lovely lady." He said happily.
She giggled, "Good morning, Prince Loki."
"You don't have to call me 'Prince Loki' you can just call me by Loki."
"Oh. Okay, Loki."
"Is it fine by you if we can meet in the Hall before breakfast? Breakfast begins in about 30 minutes." He said.
Flora began to smile, "Yes, of course."
"Okay, I'll see you in a few. Bye!" And Loki hung up the phone.
Flora has never been so excited. For once had she began to have feelings for another man. She continued getting dressed and made sure that she looked good for the Prince.
She looked at the clock and noticed they now had 20 minutes to meet before breakfast. Flora put her shoes on and walked to the door. When she arrived at the hall, she began to search for Loki. There were only a few people standing and chatting in the Hall.
"Lady Flora!" Loki said from behind her.
Flora was startled, "Oh my! You frightened me."
Loki chuckled, "Oh. I'm sorry, my lady."
She smiled and said, "You don't have to call me by that. You can just say Flora."
"Oh. Right, of course. Flora." He smiled back at her.
Loki took her hand and gave it a gentle kiss. "You look beautiful, Flora."
"Thank you. You look quite handsome yourself, Loki." She said.
They both stood there for a couple of minutes examining each other slowly and carefully until Loki finally said, "The reason why I called for you to come here is because I wanted to see you."
She gave him a half smile, "I wanted to see you also."
"Last night was such a bore, until I met you." He said with a smile.
She couldn't believe the words Loki had been saying. Could Loki have feelings for her?
Flora blushed and said, "I had a lot of fun last night. You are the first man who actually lasted communicating with me that long."
Loki was confused, "Really? But you're so beautiful. How can no other man approach you?"
Flora was flattered. "Thanks."
"Well, I'm honored to be the first man."
She chuckled and said, "I'm so glad the first man is so incredibly handsome."
Loki took Flora by the hand and said, "Follow me."
"Where are we going? Breakfast begins in a few minutes." She said worriedly.
"We'll return soon before breakfast begins."
Loki took Flora to a beautiful garden not so far from the Hall. "Wow. This is beautiful."
Loki smiled and said, "Flora. Can I ask you something?"
Flora looked at Loki and smiled, "Go right ahead."
She stood there for quite some time waiting for his question to be asked.
"Well?" She asked.
"Have you ever had feelings for another man?"
She was surprised by his question. "No, not at all."
"I see." He said.
He took a step closer towards Flora. He grabbed her hands and said, "When I first saw you step into the dining room, I knew we had some sort of connection."
"I-I felt the same exact way."
"But then when I saw the way you and Thor looked at each other for the first time, I thought you had felt that connection for him rather than me."
"You can't just assume that
"Yes, I know."
"Is it because you're jealous of—"
Loki interrupted Flora with a kiss on her lips. She kissed him back.
"Is this love?" Flora asked.
"I'm sorry?" Loki looked confused.
"Is this what love feels like?"
"I'm not so sure. I haven't felt like this before."
Flora and Loki were standing both holding onto each other, thinking of the amazing sensation they were feeling.
The bell from the dining room rang, but they didn't mind it. Flora pulled away from him for a moment, "Shouldn't we—?" Loki interrupted her question and kissed her over and over again.
"Where are Loki and Flora?" Odin asked Sif.
"I haven't got a clue. I knocked on Flora's door not so long ago and she said she was getting ready." Sif answered.
"Fandral, Volstagg, Hogun. Come here, please." Odin's voice raised in volume. The three boys got up from their seats and walk towards the Allfather. "Sir?" Fandral asked.
"I need you to go find Loki. As you can see, he's not here. Go on." He signaled them to search.
"Allfather, do you need me to go search for Flora?" Sif asked.
"Give her a few more minutes. She's probably still a bit nervous."
Sif nodded and walked back to her seat.
"Loki, I really think we should go now. I don't want to cause any trouble." Flora told him.
"Don't worry, my love. It's your first morning here."
Flora looked at him and smiled. "What is it?" Loki asked.
"It's just that never have I felt like this for someone. You're so handsome and I can't take my eyes off of you."
Loki put both of his hands on her face and pulled her in for a kiss.
Flora began to hear footsteps and the sound of grass being stepped on. She opened her eyes wide open. She looked over to find that Fandral, Volstagg, and Hogun were all staring at them. Loki was still kissing her passionately, ignoring the world. He felt her lips stop moving, so he pulled away from her face. "What's wrong?" Loki asked. Flora took her hands and turned Loki's head.
Loki was standing there with his body close to Flora, completely frozen. He did not move an inch. "Loki?" Flora asked. "Are you okay?" He turned his head back to Flora and blinked his eyes rapidly, "I'm sorry. This is so embarrassing."
"You're embarrassed? Is it because of me?" Flora asked.
"What? No. Of course not."
Fandral cleared his throat loudly and took a step forward. "Sorry to interrupt…The Allfather is looking for you, Loki. You're late to breakfast."
Loki nodded, "You can return back, we shall arrive momentarily."
Fandral gave a slight smile and walked towards the Hall. Volstagg and Hogun were both following him again.
"I'm sorry, Flora. That was rude of me." Loki told her.
"It's fine. I do not understand why they looked so surprised." Flora said.
"I'm guessing that it's their first time they've seen me like this."
"Let's just go to breakfast." Flora pulled his hand and leaded him into the hall. Loki stopped momentarily and said, "Wait. I don't think we should walk in at the same time."
"Why is that?" Flora asked.
"Because they may think that I'm taking advantage of you."
Flora gave a loud sigh. "Ok…Whatever you say so."
"You can go in first, I'll wait a little."
"You can go in. I'll be there in a few minutes."
Loki pulled into Flora's face and kissed her again. "I still love you, you know." Flora smiled and kissed him back. She walked away from Loki.
As Loki opened the doors to the dining room, everyone looked at him. When he approached the table, Odin looked at him. "Loki. Please come here."
Loki changed direction and walked towards his father. "Yes, father?"
"What were you doing that made you late?" Odin asked.
"I'm sorry, I was helping Heimdall. He was—" Odin interrupted. "I don't want to hear your lies. Just go sit down." Odin gave him a disappointed look and crossed his arms on the table. Loki turned around and walk to his seat next to Thor.
"What happened, brother? Taking your time putting on your makeup?" Thor laughed loudly along with Lady Sif and The Warrior's Three.
"Oh, shut up." Thor scowled at him.
Odin lifted his head up from his empty plate and looked at the gold clock on the wall. He realized that Flora still had not arrived. "Sif, I think it is time you can go look for Flora."
Where is Flora,Loki thought, she said she'd be here soon.
While Sif was rising up from her chair, Flora walked hurriedly in. "Oh, my," said Flora. "I am so sorry! I lost track of time." She was pretending as if she were out of breath from running. Sif sat back down in her seat again. Odin and Frigga looked at Flora. "It's fine, dear. Take a seat." Said Frigga.
Flora glanced at Loki and she saw that he was smiling at her. There was an empty seat next to Sif. When she sat down, Odin took a deep breath in and said, "Shall we begin serving the food?" Everyone at the table all said "Yes!"
The servants began to conduct the food platters on the dining table. "Ah, at last. I was hungry!" said Volstagg. Hogun immediately turned his head to Volstagg and said, "Volstagg, tell me…When are you not hungry?" Flora silently laughed to herself. Sif gave her a smile, "Their both loons…Including Fandral. Trust me on that." Flora smiled back to her.
As soon as the servants were done setting the food on the table, everyone began to serve themselves. Flora patiently waited until everyone had gotten their food. Frigga looked at Odin and quietly said, "She's just like Agni; so mannered." Before Flora had finished getting her food, everyone began to eat. By the time she had been done serving herself, half of the people had finished eating already. You could obviously tell that once everyone arrived, they had been starving.
