Astrid walked into the dining hall and saw what was meant for the feast spilled on the ground and the table flipped. Thor was angry. It had been a very strange day. After the coronation had ended prematurely, her and the others had to work on crowd control. The frost giants were a very big scare for regular people and the city had gone a little chaotic for a while. Now she saw Thor and Loki sitting on the steps and discussing what to do.
"We're going to Jotunheim." Thor announced to the group.
"Thor, that would be directly disobeying father." Loki said quickly.
"Silence brother. It's decided." Thor dismissed his brother.
"This isn't like going to Earth, where you summon a little lightning and the natives worship you as a god! This is Jotunheim!" Fandral said seriously.
"My friends, have you forgotten all that we have done together? Fandral, Hogun, who led you into the most glorious of battles?" Thor asked with a smile.
"You did." Hogun replied.
"And Volstagg, who introduced you to delicacies so succulent you thought you'd died and gone to Valhalla?" Thor asked.
"You did." Volstagg laughed as he tried to salvage some of the food.
"Astrid, who's actions gave you plenty of opportunities to improve your healing skills?" Thor asked with a smirk.
"You did." Astrid replied, rolling her eyes.
"And who proved wrong all who scoffed at the idea that a young maiden could be one of the fiercest warriors this realm has ever known?" Thor asked.
"I did." Sif replied.
"True, but I supported you Sif." Thor replied and turned to the group.
"My friends, we're going to Jotunheim. Tonight."
The others went to get ready as Astrid walked back to her room with Loki. She looked over to him.
"So they really got through Heimdall's watch? It's a little scary that they can do that." Astrid said, holding onto Loki's arm.
"I'm sure we'll find answers tonight." Loki said reassuringly. He could not reveal the truth to Astrid, not yet at least.
"At least they're taken care of for now. If more come though, I don't know what would happen. They really are dangerous beasts." Astrid said. Frost giants were hated and feared by all Asgardians.
"I'd always protect you against such creatures." Loki said, giving a smile.
"I hope you keep your word. Especially tonight." Astrid replied.
"I'm sure nothing will happen tonight." Loki said.
"You know what Thor is like." Astrid reminded.
"True. Keep your guard up and stick close to me then." Loki said and wrapped his arm around her waist.
Loki left Astrid at her door and went to prepare himself for the night. The group met up just on sunset. Loki made sure to have a word with one of the guards, telling him to inform Odin of their whereabouts shortly after they left. He would make sure his father saw Thor for the irresponsible fool that he was. Perhaps it would give him reason to change his mind about making Thor king. Loki could only hope.
Astrid smiled over to Loki as he joined them and he returned the smile. She hoped that they would be safe and that Thor would act responsibly. He would be their king and they were already breaking Odin's rules. Astrid wondered for a moment if it weren't best to inform Odin and save them all the trouble. Thor would get into trouble by the end of the night, that was certain, but if Odin came now they wouldn't have to face Frost Giants.
"Are we ready?" Thor asked as he strode up, the boys gave their battle cries to agree. Sif rolled her eyes at their behaviour. Soon the group was riding out on the rainbow bridge and out to the Bifrost. Heimdall stood proud and unmoving as they arrived, Loki smiled and went out to persaude him. Within a minute he had been denied and Thor had got them passage.
"What happened? Silver tongue turned to lead?" Volstagg asked with a chuckle as he walked past Loki. Astrid walked up beside him and placed a hand on his back, she guided him gently to walk with her.
"Don't worry about it." She whispered kindly. Loki gave a nod and stood beside her as Heimdall started up the Bifrost. Loki took Astrid's hand as they disappeared into the Bifrost. Their hands parted once they landed side by side. The cold air hit Astrid hard as she pulled her coat tighter around herself.
"Where are they?" Sif asked.
"Hiding! As cowards always do!" Thor shouted aggressively. The walk was silent as they made their way. Astrid kept beside Loki the entire way, hoping they would not see battle today.
"You've come a long way to die, Asgardian." Came the cold voice of Laufey.
"How did your men get into Asgard?" Thor asked seriously.
"The house of Odin is full of traitors." Laufey replied.
"Do not disgrace my father's name with your lies!" Thor shouted.
"Your father is a murderer and a thief! And why have you come, to talk of peace? You long for battle, you crave it! You're nothing more than a boy trying to prove himself a man!" Laufey said as Jotuns gathered around. Astrid touched Loki's hand.
"Thor, stop and think. Look around you, we're outnumbered." Loki whispered to his brother.
"Know your place, brother!" Thor dismissed him.
"You don't know what your actions would bring about... I do. Go now, while I still allow it." Laufey ordered.
"We will accept your most gracious apology. Come on, brother." Loki said, turning Thor to leave.
"Run back home, little princess." Laufey insulted.
"Damn..." Loki said to himself. Thor turned around and sent Laufey flying with a single hit of his hammer.
Author's note: Sorry about the dely. I've been quite demotivated lately. I'm trying to keep the dialog as close to the movies as much as possible, sorry if it's not what it should be. Hope you enjoyed it anyway and please review!
