Visitors Bleeding Feathers. RP for [livejournal.com profile] believeinthis.

Healing takes time.

That pithy little phrase was the bane of her existence. Time? She was Immortal, for Darkness' sake!

And it grated that a few pathetic months indoors were getting to her when she'd spent centuries stuck in that little cave, completely out of her mind and unable to push aside one little rock fall.

However, things were improving. She could now move between rooms without pausing for breath and she could read the New Scientist cover to cover without falling asleep.

Still, it wasn't quite living and there was this gnawing feeling that something was missing. Something that she could name but chose not to.

It was safe inside the apartment, with its wards and protections and lack of angels. She could rain down plague on the city from her window - bad cold and 'flu season in LA this year, worst for decades.

Something was missing.

Something that was now within ten feet of her apartment. Huh.

Pissed that Pes had actually gone so far as putting sigils in her apartment, Loki was stuck outside, able to go no further without a considerable amount of effort. It was effort which, off the back of a particularly intense judgement, he didn't have. Instead he was looking up at the window he knew from experience belonged to her bedroom.

"Were you expecting someone else?" Loki asked, head tilted back to return the look.

"Because you don't want me inside." That's clear enough just from the simple fact that he tried getting inside and he's been blocked off.

The second he can feel those barriers gone, he's flying up into her apartment, managing to stay on two feet for all of a few seconds before he's having to slump back against the wall.

"I don't need to--" He changed his mind soon after that, following along with what seemed to be the best laid plans. Maybe he did just need to sit for a couple of minutes.

"They're in chaos. I was attacked when I was leaving." Loki meant Hell was in chaos, and as a result none of them knew what they were doing.

Trying not to move away from the hands, no matter how much they were helping, Loki let his eyes slide shut, trying his best to heal himself. It was slow going all thanks to just how weak he'd been left, but he'd made it back here. And he knew he'd be back to full health in an hour.

"I know." Loki's response was nothing short of the blindingly obvious. He knew it would take more than Hell brats to keep him down for long. It didn't mean that he didn't appreciate all of this, though.

"Maybe later." Or, more aptly, when he isn't about to get some rest, angel style. He needs to work to repair his vessel, and the chips loosened from his Grace.

"While I heal." He couldn't promise anything more than that. Not when he knew he was already getting behind on his work. Sinners kept sinning.

Batteries recharged, Loki felt Pes leave the warmth of whatever it was they had going on and, after a few minutes, twisted his head to face the door. Less than a split-second later, he was in the kitchen, leaning up against one of the walls, eyes fixed on the tea-making.

Shaking his head no because he had no need for tea, he stayed mostly silent, happy enough to simply watch as she made her own.

Trying not to look as amused as he felt, he looked down at her, the smallest smile starting to curve the corners of his lips upwards.

"If anyone ever saw you doing this..."

[identity profile] believeinthis.livejournal.com 2010-11-14 06:25 pm (UTC)(link)
"I'd like to see you try." He managed to get the comment in before a pair of lips were pressing up against his own. But he wasn't pushing her away.

"Something like that." Or, really, taking more Sinners down to the Pit. This time, however, he'll be ready for what's there to greet him at the Gates.

"Like here." Loki doesn't beat around the bush. It's why he's just saying what she's thinking.

[identity profile] believeinthis.livejournal.com 2010-11-14 07:07 pm (UTC)(link)
He says nothing about not needing anything or anyone. Times change.

"I'll be back." He just doesn't know when.

[identity profile] believeinthis.livejournal.com 2010-11-14 08:33 pm (UTC)(link)
"I'm always careful." At least, he is when it comes to his job. He knows that still comes first, no matter what else he's up to.

[identity profile] believeinthis.livejournal.com 2010-11-14 09:00 pm (UTC)(link)
He sighs, pretending to be put upon at the request.

"You and everyone else."

Interested in the fact they're actually using the doors rather than flying, Loki stops just inside the doorway and holds out an arm he knows she wants.

The wound already healed up and gone, Loki looks at her handiwork and gives it an approving nod. It'll keep everyone else away, at least.

"Enjoy your tea." It's a goodbye, but he knows he'll be back soon enough.

Taking his sword, he takes the time to step forward to kiss her on the forehead, not bowing his goodbye until he's stepped back again. The smile he leaves with is affectionate, until he's gone in a rustle of feathers.
