Frost Giants Among Us

This is all based on the movies of Thor, Avengers, Iron Man, etc. there are going to be some characters from the comics in this and some made up ones,too.

This is about a girl named Luna. She has a normal life and loves it. She's 17 and lives with her mom, dad, and big sister. One day, during a battle, she finds out that she and her sister are adopted. Not only is Luna adopted, but she is also a frost giant that is betrothed to Loki Laufeyson and her sister is Luna's lady-in-waiting. What will happen when S. H. I. E. L. D. finds out? And what will Luna do about her betrothed?

This is in Luna's and Loki's POV along with some tidbits from Enchantress.

Real quick, sorry for any mistakes and as for pail and pale, it keeps changing on me. Sorry!

9. Chapter 9

*Loki*


I watched over Luna as she tried to get to the kitchen. She got lost three times before she gave the map to her male slave. He went in front, looking at the map and led her to the kitchen.


When they got to the door she had to remind the slave to stay behind her. She did it nicely which was uncalled for, she had to be ruthless, at least in public.


"Luna," I called.


"Yes," she said. It sounded as if her patients was wearing thin.


"Try to remember that they are your slaves, not you friends," I said. Quickly I got out of her head as she started a retort. I didn't take it personally, I was not in the best of moods when I was hungry either.

 


*Luna*


I couldn't  believe how annoying the bond with Loki was. He popped into my head all the time and kept blocking me before I could yell at him.


I took the 'slaves not friends' comment o heart though. I did have to be ruthless in public or the others could wind up hurt.


To Tammy I sent the same message. We entered the kitchen to find it was empty. A question was forming in my head.


"Slaves and servants make all their masters' meals, there are not enough beings to have a full staff," Loki answered the formulating question.


"If I want to talk to you, I'll ask you," I snapped back. I quickly with drew my mind.


"Find me something to eat," I told Jane and Peter as Tammy walked in. She told them to do the same thing.


"Oh, and might as well get you food," Tammy said as if she didn't care.


We went back, Peter in front again, to our rooms. We went in and ate in my room.


Most of the food in the kitchen was basic stuff that needed cooking. We decided to eat some bread, some cheese and had water to wash it all down. We ate in my room on the couch and seats. Everyone takes a little, mostly about how to adapt to all the orders and humiliation in public.


Tammy and I constantly apologized to the four for their situation. Clint didn't talk much, he was still peeved, and Peter kept venting about how racist these giants were. This made me feel guilty, as if I was the one he was talking about. Alice just kept asking how the walls weren't melting, nor anything made out of ice.


"Magic," I told her.


She seemed fine with the answer, but Jane kept insisting that it was all science. The most Clint said was "Magic and science are the same thing." He didn't speak after that.


Soon, the excitement of the day came crashing down on us. Tammy, Alice and Clint all walked to the next room. Jane made a bed on the floor using the blankets found in a closet I hadn't seen before. Peter made another bed on the couch, which Jane insisted he have.


Soon, everyone, including Tammy and those in her room, where asleep.


I couldn't get to sleep, my brain was too full of thoughts and running at high speed. The sun had set and I was still awake.


It wouldn't take long to adjust to the different time, especially when everyone slept when they were suppose to.


I was tired and the sky was cloudless while I tried to count the stars to ease my mind. It didn't help. I got up and walked over to the window and watched the stars for a while. Then I wondered over to the book shelf.


On it were the Harry Potter series, the Immortal series by Tamora Peirce, the Chronicals of Vladimir Tod series, the Eragon series, the Twilight series (that wasn't too bad), even the Vampirates series. As far I knew, these were all Earth books. How did they get here? Why were they here? And why the heck did I have a huge room, too?


"Loki," I asked tentatively. I waited for a reply. It took a minute for him to reply.


"Yes," he said tiredly. I felt bad for waking him up, even if he was a pain most of the time.


"Never mind, go back to sleep," I told him. "Sorry."


"I was not asleep. I am just tired," he replied, sounding a bit annoyed.


"Oh."


"You wanted to ask me something," he prompted.


"Yes, why are there books from Earth in my room?"


"Because I brought them here for you to read." Loki was beginning to sound more awake now.


I decided not to ask any more questions about the books, I felt that I was pushing my luck. "Why is my room so much bigger than Tammy's?"


"Who?"


"Tammy. You know Tamyra. That's what most people call her on Earth, that or Tam," I explained.


"Because you are higher royalty than she is," he explained. It felt as though he was not telling the whole truth.


Before I could ask about it he said,"There is a book on the desk. That's your history here. Who your mother is, father is, what title you have and so on. It has Tamyra's history in that as well."


He stopped for a moment when this little speech ended. I waited for more than thanked him. "Try to get some sleep," he advised.


For some reason, after talking with Loki I felt calmer. Manet because he explained things so bluntly. I decided to get the book and read it.


I was half way through the second page when I fell asleep.

 


*Loki*


I watched as Luna went and grabbed the book. She looked much calmer since our talk. As was I. I had to force myself to stay awake in order to wait until she went to sleep. It did not take long, she hadn't even read two pages when she fell asleep.


I woke the next morning with a start. Nothing had awoken me by the looks of it so I wondered what it was. I sat up in my bad and waited. That's when I heard the second knock on the door.


I quickly got up and used magic to straighten myself and the room up. Then I used magic to change the clothes I was wearing to fresh ones.


I reached out my blue hand to the door and found Enchantress there with a furious look on her face.


"There are mortals here! They are running around all over the palace with some note saying they are not to be harmed!


"One escorted a frost giant to the kitchen, I don't of her! You must do something!"


I sighed. I went to a small place in my room that I did most of my seeing magic. I opened a one way mirror and watched as Luna was led to the kitchen, the male in front, female in back.


"Hurry or I will have to punish you. I do NOT want to get lost, mortal," she hissed. Luna was doing better than I thought. She was indeed being ruthless.


I checked on what Tamyra and her slaves were doing. "Go and find the library," Tamyra instructed the male while the male was standing behind her waiting orders.


The female mortal, Alice, waited for the note telling what she was doing and their masters signature.


Tamyra then told the male to lead her to the kitchen where she met up with Luna. They were talking when Alice came in. Hawkeye, or rather Clint, was making Tamyra a sandwich. Luna's two, male named Peter and female named Jane, were standing behind Luna already given her the food.


"Go and grab some more, this has not satisfied me. Tamyra would you like to go some where a bit more comfortable to talk," Luna said.


"Oh, that would be splendid. My room perhaps?"


"No, yours is much to small. I know, how about mine."


"Brilliant idea," Tamyra said.


The two of them headed towards Luna's room, the mortals carrying food behind them. They went into Luna's  room and I shut down the mirror.


"There does not seem to be any problem," I said as I ushered her out the door. Enchantress was beginning to vex me.

 


*Luna*


Before we had set out that day, we had all agreed not to take anything said in public to heart. It was very likely that it would happen so in private, we said our apologies.


Alice did happen to find the library that day, with out much trouble either.


The others had started talking, mostly about if there was a way back to Earth. I quietly got the book Loki had told me about and went to work reading it. It was quiet boring so I skipped ahead to where Tamyra and I came in.


As it turned out, females do not have a last name until they marry, when they took on the name of their husband's father with 'si' at the end. 

 


*Author's note*


I am still making this up, so don't base a homework project on this if you have to write about the mythology of frost giants.

 


*Luna*


It was less complicated than the how they did it on Earth, with last name than a different one when you married. The males' last names are their farther's name with 'son' added to the end.


If a female does not or cannot marry (if you are a guard to a higher noble, most times you do not get married, especially females) than they say 'Guard of' and then the name of their charge. If they aren't guards then they say 'Daughter of' and the farther's name. Simple really.


I skipped over who are parents were, I wasn't that interested. I read up on what title I had, First Duchess, Tamrya was my Lady-in-waiting. This was going to tick her off. I smiled at that.


Then something caught my eye. The next page had a dew sentences that were shocking. It said: "There was an early arrangement with Laufey, Taliva and Higta (Mom and Dad for me) had served him well. It was well known that their child would be small, Laufey's son had been also, so for their years of service, the first small giant female that Taliva and Higta had was promised to the son of Laufey. They were betrothed as soon as their only child, Luna was born."


I started at the page and read on. Taliva died during child birth. Soon after Higta died of grief after his daughter and cousin (Tamyra), who he had been in charge of, disappeared.


I reread the passage about how I was Loki's betrothed. It made sense now why my room was so big, why I had books and why I was getting advice from him. He knew. I reread the passage one more time so I knew I read it correctly.


When I was sure I had I stood up quickly and let the book drop off my lap to the floor. It closed as I walked out the door slamming it behind me. Tammy and Jane called out for me, I ignored them as I stomped off. I needed to be alone for a while.

 


*Loki*


I felt Luna's surprise. Then her anger. She was angry at something and I didn't know what.


I decided to check on the others to see if they knew what had angered her so much. This was actually concerning me.


"What was in this book that had made her angry," Jane asked.


"Manet she found out that she was adopted here, too" Peter speculated.


"Yah, right," Tamyra said. "She'd be more open about it."


"May be we should stop speculating and just read the d-mn book," Clint said. Alice agreed and gave the book to Tamyra to read.


She skimmed through half of the book before she stopped.


"This is way too boring, what is this anyway," she asked.


"The Collection Of The Nobles In Recent History," Alice said in a La-Duh voice. Everyone looked at her. "It's on the cover you idiots," she said.


I stopped watching them and wondered what could have made Luna angry in that book. All it had was her history and everything about her family. Oh, and everything on Tamyra. The book also had how Taliva and Higta were loyal subjects of Laufey. The reward, of course, was the betrothal of the their first born girl, that was small.


I was so stupid! That was what had upset Luna, finding out that she my betrothed. This was not going to be a fun talk. First I had to find her though.


I started to walk around to the quietest places in the palace. I found Luna in the first place I looked, the same place I went when I needed to be alone.

 


*Luna*


I went walking around the palace and found a small room off of a little hallway. It had two seats both mismatching, one was a soft green, the other brown. I sat by the window in the green seat. I sat there for a few minutes.


That's when I heard a door open behind me. I didn't look around, wanting for the silence to go on for ever, I needed my time to think.


I sat there for two more minutes. I was confused at first, Tammy and Alice would have talked to me by now, Jane would have come to comfort me and ask what was wrong. Clint probably wouldn't have come.


As the silence wore on I pulled my legs under me while I still looked out the window. I finally looked around at the seat the person who had entered occupied. Loki sat there hand put together and looking at me.


We sat there for a few more minutes looking at each other. It was Loki who broke the silence.


"You found out, didn't you," he asked.


I nodded.


"I was going to tell you," Loki started.


"When," I asked.


"When I thought it was the right time," he told me.


"When would it have been the right time to tell the girl you tried to kill that you two were betrothed," I nearly yelled.


"I don't know," he told me.


We lapsed back into silence. I turned and looked out the window again.


"I'm sorry," he said in my mind. I could tell that he was telling the truth. He left soon after that, probably sensing that I needed to be alone.


It took nearly an hour more for everyone else to find me. As I thought, Clint didn't come.


"What happened," Jane asked me.


"Nothing, I just suddenly need to be by myself is all," I lied.


Tammy came and hit me up side the head. "That's for storming off. It you need some privacy, try kicking us all out of your room next time."


Clint was outside waiting for us. We all walked to my room.


The rest of the month passed without much happening. The newest thing was that Loki and I would stay up at all hours of the night and mind talk.


I also met this blonde who wore nothing but green. Her name was Enchantress and for some reason she seemed to hate me. That was odd, but so was having an Asgardian in Jotunheim.


Tammy also took the whole Lady-in-waiting thing well, she just yelled about how unfair it was that she was older yet could be nosed around by me. It was actually pretty funny. After the month was up, things got a bit crazy.
