Chapter 25 - Fate
"Sif," Odin said. "Heimdall has found Lorelei."
"What are your orders?" Sif knelt in front of the All-father.
"Find her, bring her back to Asgard." He said. "Seek Tyr for your equipment and go to Heimdall so he could send you right to her. It is best if she does not cause more chaos in Midgard."
"Of course." She nodded. "Is that all?"
"Whatever you do, do not let Thor know of this."
"May I ask why?"
"Let us not disrupt his extended vacation, shall we?"
"Of course, my King."
"Good." He nodded tiredly. "Go."
Sif stood up and walked away, ready to put Lorelei back in chains and in prison. Odin sat there breathing heavily, slightly tired from all the chaos going about from everywhere. There was so much to tend to. People, places, politics, justice, but it is not something that he cannot handle. He palmed his face and sighed loudly.
At least Heimdall was there to help.
"May I have an audience with you All-father?" Amora came from behind the pillar.
Odin was startled by this, and gave her a glare.
"If it is not too much trouble, my King."
"What problems to do you intend to surface now?" Odin asked.
"I want an audience with you."
"And you have it."
"Fine, let me put it bluntly." Amora stood in front of him. "I want an audience with your so called son, Loki."
"Why not?" She checked her nails. "Now would be a good time, my King."
"You are insufferable."
The all father's image dissolved and Loki sat looking displeased and unhappy. Worry was in his features and regret was most of all showing. He rubbed his face and leaned back on the chair and stared at her with discontent.
"What do you want?"
"Answers." She said. "I took care of Odin for you, through your orders. I'm not much of a healer, but at least I did what I could."
"And you want payment for it?"
"Oh, not really."
"Will you tell them of this?" He asked.
"No, Heimdall is already covering for you and I agree with that." Amora said. "It's very noble of you to bring Thor's happiness first, rather than your own. And to put up a solid clone each day just to make your presence known is exhausting for you. It makes me admire you all the more!"
"I am not fishing for compliments."
"I just admire your bravery." Amora blinked. "Besides, I want to talk to you about something else."
"Is this why you wished for an audience with me."
"What is it?"
"Perhaps the fate of the future."
Loki considered this for a moment, and turned to her. "Go on."
Amora just smiled.
All I have to say is that...
Thank you for sticking with me till the end, I truly appreciate it.
YOU have all been so kind to me and I love you all.
You've made this one of the greatest experiences, ever.
Thank you and I hope to see you in my other stories. :D
