ooc: well, since the site is down temporarily, we can use this instead.

Leaving Hel to her own devices for until it was time to go, Baldur returned to his room. He blinked, eyeing Nanna as she sat at the fire.

"Are you sure you're ready for this, Baldur?" she asked, looking over at him with a slight worry.

"Of course. Haven't we talked about this for months?" Baldur replied, going over to his closet to see if he could find something suitable to wear.

"I know but...what do you think he'll do?" Nanna asked worriedly.

"Who? Odin?" Baldur turned his head to look at his wife.

"No. Forseti." Nanna looked back at him, tears in her eyes. "Will he hate us?"

Baldur sighed, thinking of their son they had together. "I think he will be upset, of course. What child wouldn't be? But he's a smart lad; he'll realize that what we're doing is right. He isn't the god of justice for nothing, after all."

"I hope you're right, Baldur. I hope you're right." Nanna gazed into the fire while he dressed. Time would tell and she only hoped that he was right.

"Not quite everybody." Loki remarked, eyeing her speculatively. "Well, at least that's settled." He turned to his son, giving him the onece over.

Jormungand fidgeted, looking down. "Father, I'm sorry to disappoint you..."

"Oh you haven't disappointed me, Jormie. Surprised is more like it, though a very pleasant one." Loki smiled reassuringly at his son. "Frankly, I had expected this to happen to Fenrir, not you. But I'm glad it did. Perhaps now you will see that you don't have to be afraid anymore."

"And what's that look for, Loki?" Freya asked, then she grinned. "As long as he treats you well, I'm very happy for you darling." she said to Gersimi.

"He does Mama." Gersimi blushed.

"Oh nothing...just when we're finished her, I'd like to speak with you privately, Freya." Loki remarked, then clapped Jormungand on the back. "Now why don't you two go home while Freya and I hash out the details? Separately, mind you. We don't want anyone getting suspicious after all."

"Aye, Father." Jormungand replied, grinning broadly.

Gersimi looked a little disappointed about the "seperately" thing, but she agreed as well, and hugged her mother before she went.

Freya hugged her back and pushed her firmly out the door.

Once the children were gone, she sat down again. "Alright Loki, now what's this all about?" she asked.

"Oh, a couple of things actually." Loki looked her over, then sat down next to her. "First and foremost is Gersimi. What kind of dowry did you want me to pay for her?"

Freya bit her lip, thinking. It wasn't something she had been worried about, since she ahdn't thought her girls would be getting married yet, but it was an important consideration, after all.

"Well cattle would be just silly, and she doesnt' need jewels or anything like that...how about a home." Freya suggested.

"Hmm...I can do that. Suggestions?" Loki lounged back, propping his feet up on the coffee table.

"Well right now she has a little cottage that I had built for her, there's plenty of land around it, and it's close to both our halls. We could build it out so that it has room for a growing family, in time for spring of next year perhaps?"

"Sounds good. I don't see a problem with that. We may want to add a couple rooms, just to be on the safe side." Loki snickered, giving her an innocent look.

Freya rolled her eyes. "You're probably right." she said, "What a thought, me as a grandmother..." She sighed, "That makes me sound so old."

"Don't...because then it makes me even older. A grandfather...ewwww..." Loki made a face, shivering. "I definitely don't like that idea! Anyway, the second thing is...well...how to say this? I wanted to talk to you about us."

Freya gave him a confused look. "I thought you were blissfully happy with your soon-to-be wife." she said, "That was certainly the vibe you gave off earlier. Was I wrong?"

"No, you weren't. But I also noticed the anguish on your face and how you nearly broke down in tears." Loki replied softly, taking her hand in his. "Why did you never say anything to me before?"

"I didn't want to push in after what happened with Jormungand's mother, I was giving you some time...and by the time I was ready to try, you had already found one to heal your heart." Freya sighed, looking away.

Reaching out, Loki cupped Freya's cheek, turning her back towards him. "I thank you, Freya. Your words mean a lot to me, even if I don't show it very often. You kept away, even though it hurt you and for that I'm sorry."

He sighed, then smiled and leaned in and kissed her softly. "You will always be special in my heart, my lady Freya. I would be honored if I could call you a friend."

Freya laughed a little. "Friend...well, seeing as we're going to be in-laws, that might be a good idea." she agreed, then she held out her hand with a shaky smile. "Friends then." she said.

"Friends. And if Sigyn isn't adverse to it, maybe something else later." Loki winked at her, taking her hand. He pulled her close, hugging her tightly. "I do like you, Freya. Very much. Don't forget that."

"I won't." Freya laughed, "And trust Loki to imply "something extra" practically on the eve of his own marriage." she rolled her eyes and then winked at him.

Freya laughed. "Loki, you never change." she said, "Even if you do end up becoming a grandfather."

"Ewwww...evil words." Loki winked at her, then grinned. "Of course I don't change! Someone has to keep things lively around this boring place."

Freya laughed and shook her ehead, then she stood up. "Well Loki, I really ought to get home...someone needs to take that girl to task properly, and I guess it will have to be me. She needs to be reminded about the consequences her actions can take," she giggled.

After her father and brother had gone with Freya, Hel looked over at Baldur, her eyes begging to get out of there. She'd had quite enough of crowds for the day, and she was starting to feel more than a little uncomfortable with how rowdy some of the men were getting.

"Shall we go, my lady?" Baldur asked, extending his hand to her politely. Things couldn't have turned out better. Odin had given Nanna to the one she truly desired and that left him free to pursue the one he truly wished for.

"Yes, let's," Hel said, her voice coloured deeply with her relief. She put her arm in his and smiled at him as they left the hall.

Taking her hand, Baldur led her out of Valhalla and back to his own hall. The night air was crisp and sweet and he smiled down at her. He was happy; it was a rare occurance, as he hadn't been truly happy in a very long time.
