“Have you thought about what I said the other day?” Steve asked.
“You say a lot of things, Captain, how am I supposed to remember it all?” Loki retorted. “But, if you mean how you couldn’t remember the word for scissors and called them snip-snips, yes I do remember that.”
Steve went red in the face. “That was two years ago. When are you going to let it go?”
Loki just shrugged, annoying the man further. The god couldn’t say he felt bad about it. Not after all the turmoil your father had caused you recently. Though, maybe he could help smooth things a little. He just had to figure out how to get the hero off your case.
“My apologies. What is it that you wanted too talk about then?”
“The person I know who would be a good match for you.”
Loki frowned. “Oh.”
“You know Alex from PR? That’s who I’m thinking of. And before you say no,” the man was quick to add, “I saved the manager of this fancy restaurant uptown recently, and they gave me a voucher for a free dinner for two. Dessert’s included.”
Loki raised his eyebrow, an idea forming in his head. He fully saw this as an opportunity to take you out somewhere nice. Not that he couldn’t anyway, but Tony was starting to catch on that he was always stealing his credit card. He could pay the man back, but he was a billionaire anyway. Besides, all Loki’s cash was kept in a dimensional pocket; he didn’t exactly have a bank account for transferring money.
“I must decline. At least, I must decline on the account of taking Alex. I do have a, ah, secret crush of sorts, if the generous offer is still open in that case.”
Steve eyed him suspiciously. “Wait, it’s not-”
“Calm down, Captain. I will not be inviting my best friend to the dinner.”
Steve fell quiet for a moment. Had he read the situation wrong? Did Loki not have romantic feelings for you? Was he playing you, leading you on? Or was he lying to him in this moment?
“Yes. I promise I will not be asking your child out.”
This had gone a lot better than Steve expected. He pulled the vouchers out of his back pocket and handed them to the god. “Good luck with whoever it is then.”
“Oh, thank you, Captain. This has been the most delightful you have been in a while.” Loki chuckled. “Thank you for all your help.”
Peter had asked you to come to some ceremony at his school. The plan was to meet him for dinner first, then head over. However, and much to your surprise, it was not him standing by the entrance, but your boyfriend. Loki looked rather dapper and dashing in his all black suit.
“Hello, love,” you greeted him with a kiss to the cheek after he opened the door of the car for you. “Did Peter invite you too?”
“Actually, I am sorry for the trick, but the plan for the evening is a bit different than you have been led to believe,” Loki chuckled before explaining the promise he’d made to Steve. “I may be the God of Lies, darling, but I am a man of my word.”
“You’re clever, Mischief,” you laughed along with him as he led you into the restaurant. It was a technicality, but really he hadn’t been the one to invite you, just as he’d promised. “And what’ll we tell my dad when we finally come clean?”
“The whole truth I suppose. There will be nothing to lose at that point, right?”
You nodded. “I guess you’re right. Anyway, that’s a problem for another day,” you sighed. “For now, let’s just enjoy our dinner which my father has so kindly provided us with. Because, you know, I’ll never not enjoy my time with my clever God of Mischief.”
“You flatter me, my love,” he replied, stealing another kiss, happy to see you in better spirits than yesterday. “And by now I’m sure you know, though I can never tire of saying it, the feeling is mutual.”
