    Bookmarker's Notes

    "Father!"

    "Pappa!"

    The girls fly down the wooden steps of the dwelling in an instant, a blur of blue and yellow, their braids flapping. They throw themselves at Loki and wrap their arms around his legs.

    "Hello, Thorunn. Droplaug." Loki touches their heads as he names them. "What are you doing here, my darlings?"

    "We missed you, Pappa," Thorunn says, staring up at Loki with pleading eyes and a series of nods. "We were worried about you and our father, the King."

    "Yes, as your daughters," Dropluag stresses the word very clearly, "we had to make sure you were all right."

    Loki stares down at his two charges. They're clenching their teeth at him in a silent plea. "Ah. Of course." He turns to Thor with bulging eyes. "Look, dear, our children have arrived."

    Thor, to his credit, stays frozen only a moment before scooping up his namesake and seating her on his strong shoulders. "You scamps! It's much too late for you to be out and about. Salerno, might we discuss our business tomorrow morning? We should get these little ones to bed."

    "Oh yes, please," says Salerno. "I was about to suggest, after all the excitement and the wine, perhaps it would be best to speak later." They look uneasy, as if the prospect of the future meeting upsets their stomach.

    "Until tomorrow, then." Loki holds Droplaug's hand and squeezes. "Say goodnight to Sal, children."

    The girls chorus a farewell and all four of them beam beautifically at the little Hasseean. They could be a portrait, albeit a strange one, of a royal household, right down to the strained smiles.

    "Such a lovely family! Sleep well, everyone," Salerno says as they leave.

    They hold the tableau until Salerno is gone, and then Thor lowers Thorunn to the ground, plunking her on her tiny feet.

    "All right, child," he says. "Start talking."

    The girl does so even as she drops into an abbreviated curtsy. "We spoke the truth, my King. Well, mostly. We were very concerned yesterday when night fell and Heimdall had not received the sign you'd promised to send. We waited until morning and when there was still no word—"

    Droplaug breaks in. "We had terrible nightmares, didn't we?" Her sister nods. "And we were sure that you were both in grave danger. So we told Heimdall we had to go and find you, to help you if we could."

    Thor crosses his arms over his chest and stares down at the girls. "And Heimdall allowed you to leave the ship? Against my express orders?"

    "Well…." Droplaug says in the same instant Thorunn cries, "Yes!" The children glare at each other before Thorunn, sighing, relents. "No, sire. We snuck away using an invisibility spell that we found in one of Master Loki's books."

    Loki pinches the bridge of his nose. A new headache is looming. "And you posed as Princesses because…?"

    Droplaug wrings her hands as she explains. "We came upon the party tents and one of the little aliens recognized us as Asgardian. They told us the party was only for married people and asked if we were looking for the royal couple—you two, that is."

    "So we lied. Just a little!" Thorunn says, holding her thumb and forefinger an inch apart. "We didn't even mean to. They said we must be your royal children and we went along with it."

    "They might not have let us see you otherwise," Droplaug says. She hangs her head and sniffs. "We were just so worried."

    "Let me see if I understand: you disobeyed your King, learned an advanced spell on your own, escaped from the ship, traveled through swampland—alone and unarmed, mind—and then impersonated fictitious royal offspring in an effort to infiltrate an alien feast?" At the girls' jerky nods, Loki shakes his head and looks up at the sky. "I am so ridiculously proud of you," he mutters.

    Summary

    “I’m terribly sorry, your majesties, but we have only one room left,” says the innkeeper, wringing his apron between anxious hands.

    The man is a good actor, Loki will grant—he looks properly terrified of their wrath—or perhaps he is truly fearful that the ruse will be exposed, now that he’s been introduced to the reality of Thor’s biceps.
