Loki x Reader: Unwanted Endeavors ~ Part 10 ~You learned from Loki that the entire Dark Elves Camp stretched on for about a mile. It could be compared to a circle, with separate family encampments stretching on forever. Familiar families often camped near to each other, and sometimes even shared a cooking tent. Each family had a tent to about every two people, a campfire that served as a gathering space, not to mention an extra tent for cooking and whatnot. Each family had it's own livestock, which wandered nearby with other familys' livestock that was close by. All of the family camps were centered around a large, very large clearing that was used for dancing, celebration, etc'. Nearby to this clearing was a luxurious, posh tent for the Val'istar and his court. There were tents for healers, blacksmiths, vendors, as well as guilds located near the Va'listar's tent.Loki x Reader: Unwanted Endeavors ~ Part 10 ~ in Romance More Like This

I feel your uninhibited love,
the presence of the divine.
I fear for my greedy soul,
yearning towards that feeling,
hungry, my heart acting like,
my eyes have just seen chocolate...
I try to bend my will to silence,
to the purity of transcendence,
but I know that is not my way;
and why would you want me to?
Why would you, knowing me,
loving me so powerfully,
want me to go against my nature?
Surely you wouldn't...
Your love is all-seeing,
all-knowing; the result of
lifetimes of soul-searching,
adventuring around the wheel of life.
So beautiful, is this feeling of
faith, given over to devotion -
within the boundaries of life,
you ask not for my everything.
You ask me only for what you give,
Others ask for the very marrow
of the body's sacred bones.
Devotion to soul-stripping,
inelegant, greedy, grasping,
fakeries of the divine,
I simply cannot fathom.

Abandoned by all I loved unconditionally
The rain pours down, soaking my matted hair
I don't have the strength anymore to crawl to shelter
My face lies half in the wet dirt, but I don't care
My body is beaten and bruised,
Punished for some crime I didn't know I'd committed
I whimper, wondering with tears in my eyes
Why they don't love me anymore
The heartbroken ache is worse than the beatings
I cry alone on the side of the road
Shivering in the cold, pouring rain
Dimly I hear a car pull up, but I don't care anymore
I am not loved by those I love
Strangers rush over and stroke my head
At last I look up with dejection, one eye gumming closed
They take me and place me in their nice warm car
Wrapping me in a towel against the cold outside
They rescue me in my rejected state
But I don't care anymore,
Those I loved abandoned me to the rain and cold
Silent tears roll down my cheeks in a stranger's car

Trapped in this fragile world of my own
I cannot hide

Casting shadows from my bones, making me gaunt and waste away.
In the dark I tremble, in the dark I cannot escape-
Please let these terrors of night fade into day.
And even now
I can’t let them see, I cannot allow
I know I’m weak
I can’t stop them from finding what they seek
I bleed again
Just to distract or appease them-
But the lights are there, all around blazing down upon me
Scorching into my skin, enflaming muscles, disfiguring.
I tremble in the dark, the lights searing like never before-
Please let these terrors of night fade into day.
I feel the heat of the spotlight
Marking me out in the darkness
Not letting me turn away
I’m going to be trapped forever

Our servitude is so short

And do they care, are they cruel?
Or are they indifferent, desensitised?
Are the aching hearts how they are worshipped?
I suppose it doesn't matter
It doesn't change a thing
And the tears still fall
And my heart breaks
As I feel real pain inside
Heartbeats etch in fact, no longer possible
Of chances and moments lost forever

That no more is better than continuing on
We remember the moments that chance befell us;
In another time, they may not have happened
And the sun is warm, and pleasing
These are your last moments to appreciate serenity
That eases your own aches

Not necessarily 'I'm-into-cars-and-bikinis-and-drink-beer' type of man, but he didn't like to show any sort of feminine emotions, like crying or caring, and usually liked to talk down on a lot of things. Not in a bad way, no, it was just a simple, robotic response that he always blurted out when he thought something was not of his taste: "That's too girly."
Everything he saw that deemed 'too girly' was immediately criticized by the dreadful statement. Why dreadful is used was because his sister, as well as his friends and even his mom, was sick and tired of hearing that statement. He would pass by something bright and colorful, like cotton candy, and say, "Hmm... Too girly for me." He would see a brightly colored soda cup and blurt, "A little too girly.". Even cartoons that he used to watch was 'too girly'! Nothing satisfied his taste.

"Yea, you're right. But still, SPRING BREAK!" Alan shouted.
"Don't, Alan, just don't." Eddie cupped a hand over his ear.
We all headed inside of my house, where we were going to conduct a party among ourselves to celebrate the beginning of a week's break. And since it was going to rain, it was going to be even better because we'd tell scary stories, play a game or 2 in the dark and probably play a hide and seek game in the dark; you know, kid stuff that's actually fun. My parents had already set everything up in my room: pizza, chips, soda; the whole pot pie. Immediately, we dug in to the massive junk food pile before us and relaxed.

"Finally!" Ben shouted, "It's Halloween!"
Ben loved Halloween (and who doesn't?). It was the time of year where he would get to show off his amazing, almost exact, costumes of many different people and creatures that he's done. He was most known for his Van Helsing costume, which almost got the police involved because of the trench coat. Regardless, he has a knack for costumes.
This year, he was going to go a little more 'child friendly' with costumes. He's decided to base his costume off of a cartoon called 'Ben 10'. He realized the irony and such behind both of their names, but he's been watching the show recently and found it rather entertaining and awesome. So, he went to work on perfecting his costume. It didn't take much, though; it was a simple shirt and jeans with an iconic wrist watch that only fans would know. He had a week before Halloween, but the chances of finding a watch by this time are quite slim, but he's will

"Ugh... I always hate first days of school..." Nick complained, throwing his head against the head rest.
"Oh, come on, dear; first days are supposed to be fun!" His mom answered in a cheery voice as she turned into the school's driveway.
"Yea, but if the teachers decide to choose our seating, then how can I sit with my friends?"
"School isn't always about friends, you know."
"Yea, but I want to be next to someone I know, not some weird guy or talkative girl."
"Beggars can't be choosers." She pulled up the front door, "Now, I hope you have a wonderful day at school, honey!"
As Nick entered the school, he pulled his schedule paper out, reading it rapidly to see which classes were where. He began to wander the halls looking for his first period, but was soon stopped when he bumped into his friend on accident."
"Oh... Hey, it's you!"

How stupid I am being.
I am trying to make my friends do all the work for me. I'm making them make my decisions so I don't have to.
WHY ARE YOU DOING THAT?
Because I'm afraid of making the wrong choices. I'm afraid that if I try to go it alone I'll mess up because I have no idea what I'm doing.
WELL DO YOU?

A childIt began with a child. A child that was more than special. She was trained. She was taught. But more so, she was skilled. She took every obstacle thrown her way and conquered it with ease. Yes, she was skilled. She was also talented. She had abilities beyond many thought. She was kind, and very courageous. She would not stand down when those whom she loved were threatened. She was soon viewed as a force to be reckoned with. Then.....then it all fell apart. Those that she held began to fall. She became something of a trophy for who ever had the guts to take her. Her home was destroyed. Her family and friends killed. And soon, she stood along, the last of her kind. And she fled, she fled farther than the knowing mind could comprehend and beyond. Now, though, a ray of hope shines through. The girl of the once great elves might be returning.A child in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

WHY WOULD YOU HOLD THEM BACK?
Well, they scare me. I'm afraid that if I don't hold them back they'll ruin things.
