Loki and the Toy Store

Loki was in a toy store. Why, you ask? Because Tony dragged him there to see the Avengers section. Loki took one look, and left an illusionary double with Tony before slipping away to look at something else.

He eventually ended up in the stuffed animal section, and looked around. The stuffed animals looked soft and cuddly, and Loki hadn't had one since he was little. There was an overwhelming amount of bears for some reason.

As he was looking, a little boy wearing an Iron Man t-shirt came up to him and asked, "Are you Loki?"

"Yes," Loki said.

"What are you doing in a toy store?" the boy asked, sounding confused.

"Iron Man kidnapped me and dragged me here," Loki said.

"Iron Man KIDNAPPED you?" the kid asked in shock. "Did he turn into a bad guy?"

"I don't know," Loki said. "Perhaps someone brainwashed him. You could go find him and ask. I believe he's in the Avengers section."

The kid promptly ran off, and Loki, curious, followed. He found the kid looking up at Tony curiously, and Tony looking back. The kid asked bluntly, "Are you brainwashed?"

Tony choked. "No, why would you think that?" he asked, confused.

"Well, Loki said you kidnapped him, and that you might be brainwashed, so I came to ask," the kid said.

"Why does Loki think I kidnapped him?" Tony asked.

"Perhaps because you knocked me out, made Steve drag me to your car, and then drove me to this toy store," Loki said dryly.

The kid's eyes went big, before he ran off shouting, "IRON MAN WENT OVER TO THE DARK SIDE!"

Tony glared at Loki. "Do you have any idea how much I hate you right now?" he asked.

"I'm sure you hate me quite a bit, but like with everything else, it will pass, and you'll go back to nagging me," Loki said with a smirk. He heard running footsteps, and said, "I will leave you to deal with the reputation I just ruined." He teleported back to Avengers Tower, landing in the living room and causing Steve to jump. When he calmed down, Steve asked, "Where's Tony?"

"Explaining to a bunch of impressionable young children that he hasn't actually gone over to the dark side," Loki said, smirking.

"What did you do NOW?" Clint moaned, coming into the room.

"I simply told a child that Tony had kidnapped me, and he came to the conclusion that Iron Man had gone dark," Loki said, still smirking.

"Joy," Steve said sarcastically. "Now we'll all have to listen to his whining."


Two hours later: Tony returned to the Tower looking like he'd been attacked, and said, "I am NEVER having children. EVER."

"Too much to handle?" Loki smirked.

"They ATTACKED me!" Tony moaned. "I didn't even get a chance to explain what happened!"

"I'm sure you deserved it," Loki said.

Tony glared at Loki and went off to his lab, sulking.

Just a cute little drabble that came to mind.
