"You put it in the right place?" Steve asked, and Natasha nodded, "Exactly where you told me to".
He nodded once, before turning to Clint, "And you? You made sure that he was curious?"
"Dude, a fight between the Thunder God and the Incredible Hulk? I think anyone would pay to see that".
Smiling, he turned to face Bruce, "How are his hands? No lasting damage, I hope?"
"Thankfully not, but he did give himself quite the bash" He replied, and Thor frowned, "My brother is injured?"
"No thanks to you" Natasha muttered, and Stark sighed, "Guys, come on, no fighting here. Now, what, exactly, are we doing?"
He turned to Steve.
He smiled, "I have a theory".
"About Loki... And chocolate" He finished, and immediately, all eyes snapped to his.
And then they heard a loud bang from the kitchen.
Rogers grinned, "And now I have my proof".
Whatever the other Avengers were expecting as they entered the kitchen, it was certainly not this.
Loki was on the ground.
Surrounded by sweet wrappers.
And had a mouthful of chocolate.
He didn't even notice as they came in, just continued to eat more and more sweets, which were after falling from a large jar in the middle of the tiled floor.
He looked happier than a kid at Christmas.
Smiling, Bruce cleared his throat, and the Trickster jumped, and spun around to face them, guilt immediately apparent in his features.
Stark smirked, "And who knew? Turns out Silvertongue has a SweetTooth".
Loki glared at him for that, before slowly reaching out and grabbing the jar of chocolate, clutching it protectively to his chest, "Mine".
Steve laughed, "Don't worry Loks, I bought it especially just for you".
The Gods gaze softened slightly at that, but he remained on the ground, curled up with his new prize.
"So... I take it that you DONT hate chocolate, then?" Clint asked, and he gave a small nod.
"Then why lie?" He asked again, and everyone turned to stare at him.
It took a minute to click.
He smirked, "You're the God of Lies, of course... But seriously, all this time? Rejecting our chocolate offers? Why?"
"I... It's a weakness" He replied quietly, "I'd do nearly anything for chocolate and... I didn't want you to find out about that".
"Once again, I won't hold it against you" Rogers said, shrugging, "And I'm pretty sure these guys won't either... But seriously, chocolate?"
They all burst out laughing.
Blushing slightly, Loki turned back to his jar of sweets, "Yea. Chocolate".
It was silent for a minute.
"So, hey, now that we know your deepest, darkest secret" Clint suddenly began, "Can I have some-"
"No" Loki snapped.
He stared at him, "... No?"
"No" He repeated, "It's my chocolate... Completely positively Mine".
