Here have some wonderful drama
WHAT ARE THEY HIDDIINNNNGGGG *GASP*
Without anything else to do, you get dressed and decide to meet Tony and Bruce at the tower. Luckily today's weather is nice, so you choose a loose shirt and some jeans. You grab your favourite scarf before locking up.
You enter Stark Tower and step into the elevator. The men could be on any floor, but you choose the one with the biggest amount of Tony's gadgets. They're probably fooling around, knowing those two. Getting off the elevator, you continue down the hallway, decorated with frames of Tony as a child, some of his popular weapons and even a few of his dad.
You freeze before the entrance of the room because the words you are hearing from just inside almost make your heart stop.
"- Tony, this is serious. This morning the reading was considerably high, the most intense it's been in four years. It's as if he was in the damn house!" Bruce shouted.
"But that's impossible, we both know that. I mean, we left him there. On that deserted planet. You know that, Banner. We all do." Tony kept his voice cool, but he couldn't hide the sternness. A minute of silence passed, you kept your feet planted where they were and tried your best to keep your breath shallow. 'They couldn't possibly be talking about...
"Damn that Loki bastard! If he has come back ..."
"If he has come back for her, we need to tell the team. And if he really was close to your place, we will need to send (y/n) away for a while.." Tony's voice slowly slipped away as he saw you enter the room.
Heart beating against your ribcage, you managed to squeeze the words out of your lungs.
"I am not going anywhere until you tell me what the hell is going on!" Your fists balled up at your sides. The two men definitely felt your glare. "Who is Loki? Tell me. Tell me right now!" You shouted, body trembling.
They stood in silence and a tense mood set in. "We, uh...Loki is....Ahh look (y/n), you won't understand, it's complicated" Even though Bruce was trying to calm you down, your mind flipped with questions, confusion, and finally- fear. You were scared. 'Coming back for you'? And how did they know about Loki in the first place?!
"If you won't tell me, I will figure it out on my own I swear it!" and with that, you stormed out. They tried to catch up with you, probably hoping they could reason with you, but you closed the elevator door on them. When you exited the building, you hopped in Bruce's car (ha ha for a spare car-key set) and drove away. Just kept driving and driving. Time seemed to alternate between slowing down and fast-forwarding.
You remember an old cottage your father still owns and decide that it would be the perfect place to hide. Why hide? You had no idea. In all your fear and rage, you just wanted to leave the tower and people and everything!
Pulling up to the old cottage, old memories emerged from the dust. You spent a lot of time here growing up. The screen and wooden door still creaked when opened, and the scent of candles and pine still lingered. Or maybe that was just nostalgia making you smell things from the past.
With no energy, you flopped onto the old couch. You tasted some sort of saltiness on your lips and brought your hand to wipe at your mouth. Tears had run down your face, and you realized that you hadn't stopped tearing up since leaving the tower. You stared at the ceiling, mind feeling blank. Wait a freaking second. The candle scent...was definitely....not your imagination!
You bolted upright and examined the room. Yes, there, in the tiny kitchen! You get up and move to it, the smell seemed to ease you and calmed your nerves somehow. It was a pale green colour, and a very abstract shape (was this thing defying the laws of gravity- how the heck is it standing upright?). Somehow, even though the flame burned bright, the candle did not melt. You noticed there was also a single flower in a little cup of water. A beautifully bold rose. A tiny slip of paper hung around the stem from a string. It read: "wait for me.."
You smiled. You smiled because you were sure you knew who these came from. Maybe you would finally get some answers, and hopefully see him again~
