The phone was ringing, and Scarlett was ignoring it profusely. This bothered Loki immensely. Especially because the caller was not giving up.
"Just answer it!" He demanded.
"Because I know who it is."
"It'll be Daniel," she replied.
"Then I will answer it," the prince declared, jumping up and making his way to the landline phone. Scarlett called to him to stop but he ignored her. He raised the phone to his ear.
"Scarlett, you will regret splitting up with me. I can hurt you. I can hurt you so bad."
"Daniel, is it?" Loki asked the receiver.
"Who the fuck is this?"
"I think you should watch your words, for you are not the only one capable if causing pain to another."
"What you saying, mate? You threatening me?"
"Figure it out," Loki replied, deathly calm.
"You little-" The god hung up.
He waited for a few seconds to make sure the phone would not ring again, and smirked when it didn't, making his way back to Scarlett. She was staring at him wide-eyed.
"What did he say?"
"Nothing very enlightening."
"Sounds like him. You didn't have to do that."
"The ringing was frustrating me."
Scarlett smiled as Loki sat down next to her. She pulled up a horror that had only just started and flicked off the lamp next to her, the only source of light in the room.
"Well, let's just ignore him in future, huh?"
"If you wish." They settled down in silence to watch the movie. It started with a death which Loki laughed at, causing Scarlett to slap him.
"Ow!" He complained.
"That wasn't funny!"
"It was. That girl was incredibly foolish." Scarlett rolled her eyes and shivered. "Are you cold?" She nodded.
Loki shrugged off his dressing gown from the morning and gave it to her. She thanked him and draped it round her shoulders, amazed at how much it smelled of Loki and not Daniel. The adverts came on.
"Tomorrow, we're going to go shopping," she announced. Loki groaned.
"You need some clothes, and I haven't got my sister a Christmas present yet. Monday to Wednesday I'm working, so tomorrow is the best day."
"Christmas?" Loki asked, intrigued.
"Yeah, it's a day where everyone gets presents off of friends and family and stuff. People tend to eat a lot as well." Loki pursed his lips.
"Sounds... Nice. We have a festival very similar to this Christmas in Asgard."
"What's the best present you've ever had?"
"Oh I got a... Well, it was a present from Thor when I was young."
"About 200, I suppose that's similar to a toddler's age here."
"And? What did he give you?"
"A bear? Like a real bear?"
"Aw! So a teddy bear! That's adorable. And that's the best you've ever had? Cute!"
"What about you?" Loki asked, slightly embarrassed by his confession about his partialness to small cuddly things.
"It's not very sentimental, but The Lord of the Rings box set. It was from my sister a couple of years ago. I'd never watched those films before, so how she knew I'd like them, I'll never know."
The movie came back on and they went silent.
