Looking over the side of the couch at the mortal on the floor, he raised an eyebrow. Tony seemed to be one of the smartest humans he’d met yet, but still, he seemed to not be able to figure him out.
Here was a self-proclaimed genius among mortals, wasting his time with someone that everyone else had tossed away like garbage they had no use for. Overlooked by his father and outcast by his entire realm now, he wasn’t sure if he remembered what it felt like to be needed or cared about by someone. Thor claimed to care and love him but he was his brother and Thor was too gentle hearted to ever claim hate against his own brother.
But Tony SHOULD hate him and the fact that he didn’t baffled Loki, making his heart ache because he so desperately wanted to give in to the affection he was being offered. But it came with too high of a price. Hawkeye was still in the room, and Loki could compare him to Heimdall, always seeing everything, and he refused to let his weakness show through to anyone he could still consider an enemy.
Stumbling a bit as he slid off the couch, he grabbed the fabric of Tony’s shirt to tug him upright, pulling him off the ground and starting to take a few steps backwards towards the bedrooms.
“We should continue this conversation behind closed doors, away from prying eyes.”
Tony cracked a grin like a kid in a candy shop as he stumbled after Loki.
“Does that mean we’re gonna have sex? Gonna have seeeeeeeeeeex time?”
Raising a surprised eyebrow, his eyes widened a bit at that.
“Actually, I was going to attempt to have a literal conversation. But now it appears that i’m going to be holding you down with a pillow over your face until you fall asleep.”
“Shhhh nooooo i’ll suffocate.”
Yep, it was definite the mix of alcohol in him that was making him sway and wrap his arms around Loki and in that moment he had to accept that Loki really was a lot taller than him. He felt like a little girl clinging to a crush with his arms up high to wrap around his neck and his face planted firmly in the middle of Loki’s chest. He could hear Loki’s heartbeat. He could FEEL it and that made him feel all warm and fuzzy inside that he was actually this close to someone that he could feel them alive in his arms.
The thought of Loki NOT being alive suddenly hit him and he hugged him tighter.
“Don’t leave me…”
