Alternatives Chapter 12 It was five-twenty when she put her hand over the wall panel outside his door. Once inside, she was met by Loki in a chest crushing embrace, his face buried in the hair at her neck. "You smell of sandalwood, my queen."
Sarah pushed him away with a gentle hand, "Don't say that, Loki. I'm not a queen."
"You are to me. You are queen of my heart, my mind, my body and soul." He twirled a lock of her hair around his fingers, "And you are mine tonight, I shall read another act of "A Midsummer Night's dream" for you. I quite enjoy it."

Sarah shrugged, "I'll take what I get, I can ask I suppose."
