Jötunheim. A frozen realm that once in all its glory was a quiet place of peace. However, one day the hunger for power and dominance took their king beyond the realm itself to lash out at others. Since has been the way between our realm and theirs.
For every realm a king rules and makes decisions what is best for his people. It takes a wise king to know this and sometimes needs to make a decision to lend a helping hand to others.
"Father, why is it that you continue to speak with the Jötuns? King Laufey continues to break your treaties and test your patience," the crown prince of Asgard spoke.
"Because my son, If I was unwilling to avoid war then I would not be doing my part as king and All-father. Ruling is not always about fighting formidable foes, it is doing what I can to avoid unwanted bloodshed. No matter what must be brought to the table, every route must be sought before a war is unleashed between two realms." Thor nodded understanding his

(Back in Loki's POV)
The first thing that came to my senses was pain, I have not felt such a painful ache in my life. It was what awoke me from my rest, my eyes slowly opening to a darkened room. Our chambers, I recognized after a few moments. Even a few more moments after that I noticed I was not alone.
To my left Thor had fallen asleep, in a bit of a strange position he was sleeping in as well. He had somehow managed to scoot his chair toward the side edge of the bed so his head could rest upon it next to my arm. I smiled as I was able to lift my arm slightly to rest it upon the back of his head. His golden tresses lay almost perfectly, but my gaze froze looking farther down at me feet.
My...bump was gone. I managed to summon the strength to lift my right arm now to touch my stomach. My injury must have been too great, our child did not survive. It was now that I realized tears had fallen

It was some time before I finally was able to stop sobbing, embarrassing. I walked with mother back to her room and did not expect...him...to be there. As soon as I saw Thor I turned about face and was about to leave when he called out to me.
"Loki...Please. Please stay," his voice sounded raw. I stopped in the doorway, but I did not turn back to look at him. I could tell by the awkward silence, mother must have given him a glance to proceed and approach me. His footsteps came up behind me and I could sense he was right behind me now. I swallowed nervous. "Please..."
I continued to remain still only turning my head to the left ever so slightly but not enough to change the direction in which I viewed my path of travel. There was a tense feeling in the air around me, if he were to grab hold of me again would I reject him?
He did place his hands upon my upper arms, softly... carefully to not startle me a

I had been dreading this day for the last week. It was early morning and there was a fresh snow over the land, only a couple of inches. It made Asgard lovely, I envied such beauty. Since it was cold out, my skin had turned blue with its raise markings. Ever since I had been through heat last cold season, I did not mind showing my frost giant skin. I even wore it while walking around the palace on occasion, yes there are a couple of stares but at the same time there was a sense of understanding. They knew what I was but they still accepted I was Thor's husband and equal.
I sighed softly, feeling my ever growing bump. It was at that moment I thought that is was possible the war would not be over in time for the birth of our child. I would have to give birth alone at that point. I let my male mind tell me everything would be just fine, I could handle it.
"Hey... you are up early," Thor slipped his hand around my waist, pressing

Morning came and I had decided not to watch the sunrise for the first time in many weeks. My reason? Thor was already gone before I woke up. My heart ached when he was not here in the morning, but more so lately. I blame the hormones, they truly have messed me up pretty bad this time while with child.
There were times I just began crying for no reason, I try to think of why when I calm down but I have no answer. There are times were I was about to go and do something important, but before I make it to my destination I forget what I was to do. My magic has even suffered, I cast a spell the other day and it backfired upon me. Thank Valhalla it did not injure the baby.
So here I remain, in bed...
I sighed, it was strange for me to not want to get up and move about the palace. It felt like a cloud was hanging over me all the time now, which ensued depression for me. It was nearly sun high by the time I go
