By popular demand I have made a second chapter to this. Ok, I only had two reviews asking for it, but that's enough for me to want to make another one. So, here's another one. This one is mainly about Thor and Loki and is mostly hurt/comfort but I promise some more tickling! Hope you like it as much as I do ^_^
Loki sat in his cell looking at the wall thinking. Thinking about what he had done and he started questioning his reasons for doing it. He had never questioned himself before this for he hadn't a reason to have done so. And yet here he was questioning everything he had done. It couldn't possibly be because of what happened a few days ago could it? He remembered how Natasha had started tickling him and his brother Thor soon joined in the game. Afterwards they allowed him to join them at the table. It was as if the battle had never happened and they talked as if they had been best friends for years and had never been enemies in the first place.
Loki found himself smiling at the memory, which was much unlike him. But he didn't care one bit, he had enjoyed that evening as much as he could. His smile faltered and he looked down at his crisscrossed lap. He had never laughed like that in years. Suddenly Loki's expression went sour. Why had he enjoyed it so much? Those people were his enemies! He hated them! Especially Thor! He gritted his teeth together. The door to his cell opened and he stood up to see Thor.
"What do you want?" Loki hissed. Thor raised his eyebrows towards him. Just yesterday Loki had been calm and silent. Now he was angry?
"What is wrong Loki?" Thor asked. Loki glared at him.
"Nothing is wrong, I am fine," Loki answer harshly. He turned around and walked away from Thor, then he sat down in his corner. Thor walked over to his brother and folded his arms over his chest. He didn't believe Loki one bit. His emotions had been on the fritz for a while now. One day he was quiet, the next he could be happy, and the next angry. Thor never knew what to expect when he paid visits to his brother as he sat in his cell. Loki looked up at Thor as he towered over him. He didn't like that, having to look up at someone, it made him feel small, and he hated being small, especially with Thor. He had always been smaller than Thor. Always.
"No, you are not," Thor said. Loki looked away from him, not wanting to make eye contact. Loki blinked a bit roughly as his eyes stung. He knit his brows together, no! He would not cry! He closed his eyes and words came to him, they were his own, and they poisoned his heart with an aching pain. "...because no matter how much you claimed to love me, you couldn't have a frost giant sitting on the throne of Asgard!" The words echoed through his head. He opened his eyes and took in a deep breath. "Brother...?" Loki jumped to his feet at that word.
"I am not your brother!" Loki screamed at him. "And I never was! So dont call me that!" Thor was surprised at his brother's anger. Loki shoved passed him as the tears he was hiding behind his eyes came close to flowing out. Thor went to put a hand on Loki's shoulder but Loki pushed it away from him. "I am not your brother, so stop acting like I am." Loki's voice had gone quiet and Thor was a bit surprised at the sadness that filled it.
"You're right," Thor said. Loki looked over his shoulder at him as he spoke. "I am not your brother. Father stole you from your true parents and then lied about it. He lied to me and he lied to you. He lied to the whole kingdom. But we were still raised together, and I still care about you. We may not be brothers, but can we not be friends?" Loki looked away from him and squeezed his eyes shut tightly. The tears forced their way passed his eyelids and down his cheeks. What Thor had said hit him right in the heart because it was true, one hundred percent true. "Loki?" Thor looked at Loki's back as his head looked down at the floor. Loki swallowed in an attempt to force the sob down, but it put up a good fight and managed to escape passed his lips. Thor forced Loki to turn around with a slight push on his shoulders. He blinked in surprise. "Loki, what ever is the matter?" Loki looked Thor in the eye as he took a few deep breaths.
"I am sorry," the words had been formed by his tongue before Loki had even thought them. At first Loki did not want to continue, he wanted to smack himself and then take an attempt on hurting Thor. But than he found truthfullness in his words and for some reason, although he could not fathom why, he burst into tears and continued his apology. "I am so sorry. Never before have I questioned my acts before this day, but I have. What I did was wrong, I knew there was no way I'd end up on top but I tried anyway, and I just made a fool of myself! And I am a fool and nothing but a fool! I am a fool for everything, every damn thing I've ever done! And I do not deserve your forgiveness." By the time Loki had finished he found himself on his knees, in tears, and his entire body shook. Thor looked down at Loki, at first he was not sure if this was an act or if it was real. But Loki would never fall to his knees crying like this just to convince him to forgive him.
Thor pulled Loki to his feet and pulled him into a brotherly hug. Loki found himself holding onto Thor as if his life depended on it and cried, filling the silent cell with sobbing noises. Loki was soon questioning these actions as well, did he mean what he said? Loki decided, against his normal logic that screamed at him, that he did mean it and would always mean it. Although the hug had genuinely surprised him. Loki slowly stopped and Thor held him out in front of him.
"Loki, look at me," Thor said. Slowly Loki raised his head to look up at him, his mouth in a thin line. "I will make you smile, if I have to tickle you for it." Loki's eyes widened at this statement.
"NO! No, no, no, no, no!" Loki said backing away, but Thor came closer. "Thor, go away! Thor! THOR! Thor! AH!" Loki shrieked louder than every before as Thor's fingers attacked his sides. Without the handcuffs this time it was much easier to fight off Thor. "Mercy! Mercy!" Loki ran away from Thor in the small cell they were in. "Get away from me Thor!" Even though Loki tried to speak in anger he found himself laughing. He avoided Thor in every way he could but the capture of his ticklishness was inevitable. Thor grabbed Loki and started to tickle him again in a tight grasp. Loki tried to push away as he laughed. "MERCY!" Loki managed to slide himself away from Thor's grasp only to fall to the floor.
"You did not help yourself brother," Thor said pinning Loki to the ground with one hand and tickling him with the other. Loki tried to get his hands away from his stomach and was succeeding.
"No! Stop! No more! Thor! No! No, no, no, no, no, n-AH!" Loki's success stopped as Thor tickled him. "Have mercy brother!" Loki screamed as he tried to wiggle away. Loki tried to stand but stumbled over himself and Thor got access to his sides once more. Loki burst out into what Thor filed under giggle. "Stop! Stop! Thor! THOR!" Loki screeched loudly as Thor squeezed his sides, then proceeded to tickle him. The door flew open and Odin walked in. Neither of the brothers noticed him as Loki tried to get away. "No! Lemme go!" Loki managed to get out of Thor's grasp long enough to get to his feet, only to be pinned against the wall and have his sides attacked again. "Stop! I can't breathe!"
"What is going on here?" Odin said. Thor stopped and looked over at his father. Loki took many deep breaths and chuckled a bit. Thor smiled and looked back at Loki.
"He's torturing me!" Loki aggagerated. Thor looked back at him, mouth agape.
"I am not!" Thor protested.
"Are so!" Loki shouted back. Both boys laughed and Odin smiled. Loki wasn't fully recovered and still needed to stay in his cell, but maybe there was hope for him yet...
Well, there you go. Hope you liked it ^_^
Please review! Pretty please?
