“More like a nightmare, surely?”
“Yeah, I guess…”
“What do you remember?” asked Clint.
“I remember waking up in the middle of the night to find the world coming to an end...and then there was a battle...which we lost? And then…we moved to a big camp that was in this half-destroyed city that looked a lot like this place…although I’m not quite sure how we got there…”
“In that first battle, most of the cities got destroyed,” Clint told him, “They have a weapon of mass destruction up in the Hive ship that’s in orbit. It was like a wave of fire and it eradicated everything and anything in its path. New York was wiped off the map.

"That was not proper magic. Mere illusions and tricks of the mind. What mortal brains want to see"
"Ah! But Loki," Darcy interrupted, "It may not be proper magic- but it was improper magic, done properly!"
"Not magic by any definition"
"You gotta admit it was a pretty good movie though" you said
Darcy nudged him with her elbow "Don't deny you enjoyed it. I saw you laughing a couple of times"
He tried to hide a smile as he denied her 'outrageous' accusation.
"You certainly enjoyed the popcorn - even if you say you didn't like the film" you smiled
"The popping corn is his only weakness" Darcy chuckled, not just at the fact that he'd scoffed practically the whole lot, and his way of naming the treat.
Loki scowled good-naturedly. The three of you were standing on the steps outside the cinema and watching the last of the rain clear up. Blue sky was breaking through the clouds and the Grand Pier was sat in a patch of sunlight.

“Of course. I’d be honored!”
Loki laughed and said, “Great! But I still haven’t said anything to my brother or Odin. You are the only person who knows about this. Don’t tell anyone until you get permission by either Sigyn or myself.”
“I am not sure how father would react to this. But I love her.”
Manadis smiled warmly at him before saying, “He can respect that, Loki. You won’t have any problems.”
“I hope not.”
“And I bet Thor would be ecstatic to hear this.”
“He will, if I know my brother.”
They shared a silence. Manadis watched the sunset, while Loki laid back down on his back. Manadis soon joined Loki in laying down. She lowered herself to the ground and folded her hands on her stomach, then closed her eyes.

This was the first time in a long time that she felt bored. She didn't want to practice now because her hand still hurt. She didn't feel like using the Internet. She wanted to do something different.
Manadis did a full turn around her room. She observed every inch and corner, searching for something to do. Then, her eyes fell upon a black rectangular object hidden underneath her nightstand. It was dusty. The mortal girl smiled.
Manadis walked over to her nightstand and bent down to pick up her clarinet case. She grabbed a tissue and cleaned off all of the dust that had collected on the case.
Manadis hadn't played this instrument in over a month. She was so excited to finally see it again, and have time to play it. But she didn't know where she put all of

She wanted to help above ground in the battle, but Eskel didn't want to risk her safety. He held her close to him, and every time the cellar shook he squeezed her closer to him.

"How long does the Odinsleep last?"
"It depends. Sometimes only a day. But other times a week or more. But this one didn't seem too serious. I wouldn't worry."
There was faint screaming and more crashing from above them.
"But I am worried, Eskel!" Manadis suddenly released herself from her boyfriend's protective arms. She grabbed herself in her own lonely hug. Manadis felt like crying. She bit her tongue and kept her eyes wide open.

“Hello, my dear.”
Manadis ran up to Eskel and hugged him. Eskel returned the hug, and also kissed Manadis on her head. It was another one of their tutoring classes.
“How are you?” Eskel asked his girlfriend.
“I’m fine. And you?”
“I’m doing well.”
“Good,” Manadis smiled at him. She had changed into clean clothes after her training sessions with Thor. But she still had the cloth from her old outfit wrapped around her hand because she couldn’t wrap a bandage around it with only one hand.
“Let’s get started,” Eskel said. He plopped his books down on the table and looked for today’s lesson. Manadis sat with him.
“Why don’t you tell me about your training session while I get everything set up?”
“Okay... Well, I kind of taught myself how to throw my sais last night. And Thor showed me how to make them come back to me once I throw them.”
The One Chosen To Learn - Part 6After leaving Manadis’s room, Loki didn’t go straight to his. He walked quickly down the halls of the castle. Loki was planning to go straight to Thor’s room, or at least try to find his older brother.The One Chosen To Learn - Part 62 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Another Asgardian seemed to be looking down while walking down the halls in the opposite direction of Loki. He had a pile of books and papers in his hands, and was too busy making sure they wouldn’t fall to notice where he was going. This man crashed right into Loki and fell backwards onto the floor.
“Fool!” Loki spat. The man had a hat on and it fell off of his head when he hit the floor. Loki stared at him curiously.
“So, you are an elf... Very clever way of hiding those,” Loki picked up the man’s hat and held it in his hands. The person who fell was very red in the face. He had long pointy ears, which was what Loki was referring to.
“I’m sorry, sir,” the elf said quietly. He had also dropped all of his thing
The One Chosen To Learn - Part 27Manadis walked through the now familiar halls of the Asgardian royal palace, nodding to people she recognized on the way. She knew that Eskel was with some of his guy-friends that he made while staying in the castle, so she was expecting him to be late for their lesson. Manadis leisurely made her way to her room. The training session with Loki was continuously running through her mind as she walked. The mortal was trying to analyze what made her so off her game with the prince. Manadis knew she wasn't terrible, but she wasn't performing at her best. To add to that, she couldn't help but notice that Loki was acting weird. Just flat out strange.The One Chosen To Learn - Part 272 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Manadis's wandering mind almost made her pass her room. She backtracked and opened the door. Just as she thought, her room was empty. Manadis shed some of her armor and put her sais' holster on her bed. She took out some of her ruins books out and read them while she waited for Eskel.

The mortal woke up the next morning all achy from her previous training session. Still, she knew that she had to get out of bed and get ready for yet another day of training.
Manadis took a shower and put on her clothes and armor. It was 8:15. She decided to see if she could get some breakfast before training. Manadis walked out of her room and headed to the dining hall.
The doors were open when she got there, which was a good sign. But when she entered, the entire room was empty. All that was in there was the many long tables which the Asgardians eat at. Manadis strolled some more through the castle, until she saw a doorway that lead outside. She went outside and found herself in a marketplace of sorts. Manadis looked at all of the fruit and vegetables. This just made her hungrier, and she didn’t have any mone

Yes, it was a happy occasion, but Manadis wondered in the back of her mind how this feels to both Princes of Asgard.

Loki was clapping and smiling along with everyone else, but something different showed in his eyes. Everything seemed... forced. Manadis could only imagine how he felt. He missed being next in line on the throne only because of age, and now he had to watch his brother get all of the glory while he was nearly forgotten. Manadis almost started bitterly clapping and smiling herself.
After the hall was dismissed of its people, Manadis stayed behind. She wanted to congratulate Thor. As the Asgardians began filing out of the

"Yes, I am very serious."
"Um, did Thor say that's okay?"
"Well, this can be our secret, Manadis."
Loki was dangerously close to Manadis now, and she could feel his breath gently hitting her face.
"O-Okay. I guess so. But what do I need to use magic for?"
"To do things like this," and Loki disappeared from his spot in front of Manadis. She blinked her eyes and turned around, but screamed when Loki was behind her.
"And what exactly do I need to scare the living daylights out of people for?"
"For personal amusement.... And to get out of tough situations."
"I don't think Thor would be happy if--"

Thor and Michelle walked out of the building, and Thor introduced the Midgardian to Hiemdal. Michelle was a bit afraid of him, mostly because of his size and height. Still, she waved to him.
The two of them walked down the Rainbow Bridge. Thor expected Michelle to stare at Asgard in amazement and awe. It was right in front of them, after all. But Thor looked down at Michelle and frowned. He saw that she was still tearing up, occasionally letting a tear fall to the ground. She looked at the floor as she walked, not even bothering to look at Asgard.

Manadis then chose to take off all of her armor to relieve the stress from her aching, bruised, and bloody body. She did that, then she went into the bathroom. Manadis gasped when she saw herself. Her face was cut up in many places. The first thing she thought when she saw her face was, 'Was that how I looked when Eskel was here?!’
The mortal rinsed her wounds, then went back to her bed. She plopped down in it, and took out her ponytail. She would have to eat in about four hours, so she had time and she decided to get comfortable. Manadis placed the computer on her lap. She went onto YouTube first, finding herself some music while she browses stuff. Then, she remembered something. Something Arik said.

Odin and Thor still had not permitted her to go to Midgard or any other realm. The mortal had still not fought in any type of war since the funeral of Sigyn. Though, she continued training with Thor, harder than ever.

He heard the water in the shower running, and was about to close the door gain. But he lingered when he heard Manadis singing. After some time of listening, he heard the water shut off.

Manadis ran carefully through the castle. She wanted to help, but she really wanted to find Eskel. Manadis went back to the place she saw Eskel last, and turned the same way he did. There was no sight of him. This was when Manadis began getting nervous. Her heartbeat picked up speed and she breathed faster. She kept thinking to herself that he was fine and out of harm's way.
There came a loud bang from the ground outside. Manadis, grabbing her arm in pain once more, took one of her sai blades in her hand, ready to fight. But her arm hurt too much to do anything almost. And the blood coming from it stained her entire left sleeve. Manadis chose to do what she did in the past: use pieces from her clothing to cover the wound. She d
