You sat staring out your window, watching the clouds drift by. It was a regular day on Asgard, you could hear some soldiers play wrestling on the practice grounds. You sighed. Suddenly, the door burst open.
"(Y/n)! You're late! We have work to do!" Your friend (f/n) came running in.
"Oh my gosh! I completely forgot about the banquet!" You quickly gathered your skirts and ran out with your friend. You had completely lost track of time! Lord Thor mustn't be kept waiting. You both ran into the kitchen, grabbing platters off of the counters.
"There you are girls!" the cook called to you when you came in. "I was starting to wonder if you were ever coming!" You both ran out quickly. You cursed yourself for being late. You thought back to when you had first come to the palace.
You lay on the ground, exhausted and starving. Your parents had disappeared, leaving you on the streets. It was a beautiful day, but you didn't care. All you wanted was some food and water. You suddenly heard commotion coming from the streets. Some how you found the strength to stand up and walk over. The sight was glorious. The king was parading through the streets, with acrobats and music all around him. You saw a boy a little older than you walking beside him. He had shining golden locks and bright blue eyes. You stared in awe as he passed by. You thought you saw him glance over at you, but you figured you were hallucinating from lack of food. But then he turned and pulled on the kings robe and they stopped. The king leaned down and the boy whispered in his ear. The king turned and looked at you. You panicked as he said something to the guards next to him and they moved towards you. You turned and ran back through the alley, turning the corner as fast as you could. You could hear them shouting as they ran after you. You ran until you couldn't anymore, and you collapsed in an alley. The last thing you remember before you blacked out was seeing the boy leaning over you. When you woke up, you thought you were still dreaming. You were in a magnificent bed, and your dirty dress had been replaced with a cozy nightgown. You sat up, looking around. You saw the boy from the parade leaning on the side of the bed, asleep. He looked so peaceful. But he soon stirred and woke up, rubbing his eyes. He looked up and saw that you were awake.
"Oh! Good! You're awake! How are you feeling?" He asked, his blue eyes lighting up.
"F-fine." You stuttered. You looked around again. "Where am I?" You asked him.
"You're in the royal palace, my home!" He replied, smiling. The door opened and the king walked in. You let out a squeak of surprise, then quickly bowed as best as you could. He laughed.
"Don't worry child, that is not needed." You sat up again, still a bit nervous.
"I am Odin, King of Asgard, and this is my son, Thor. And you are?"
"(Y-y/n)." You managed to get out. He smiled.
"Well, (y/n), welcome to your new home! I have agreed to let you stay as long as you do your part and help out around here. Does that work for you?" You nodded vigorously.
"Alright then! Lets get you some food and a fresh set of clothes, then Thor can show you around!" And with that, he left. You swore in your mind that day to do your best that you ever have to thank them for helping you.
You and (f/n) ran as fast as you could with the platters of food in your hands to the banquet hall. Lord Thor was hosting a banquet with his friends. You both ran in and started setting down the platters.
"There's our food!" One of his friends said as you set a plate of meat down near him. Thor nudged him a bit and he quieted.
"We are very sorry for the wait, Lord Thor." You said as you bowed.
"(Y/n)! I thought we established this by now! Just call me Thor!" He said in a joking tone.
"Yes, Lord Thor." He sighed.
"Alright. That's fine I guess." He said, looking a bit defeated. You and (f/n) both ran out again to get more food. When you had finally brought everything in, (f/n) told you to go ahead and take a break. You obliged and left your post by the door. You slipped out, and Thor caught your eye as you did. You shrugged it off and headed for your favorite spot, the royal gardens. When you got there you headed for your favorite bench. You sat down and listened to the birds in the trees.
"It's an amazing day, isn't it?" You heard suddenly. You jumped at least a foot in the air as Thor suddenly appeared out of the bushes. He laughed when you jumped.
"It's alright, (y/n), it's just me." He said as he hugged you to calm you down. You blushed and moved away a bit. He frowned.
"Why do you keep drawing away from me, (y/n)? We're still friends aren't we?"
"Yes, it's just that you're a prince, and I'm just a commoner and I feel like you want to be more than friends." You look down and he blushes.
"Well, maybe I do. And I don't care about those labels! I love you anyways..." He hugged you and you hugged him back.
"I love you too..."
(The End! Cause I'm evil. >)
