"Are sandwiches and chips, okay?" Emily asked as they all reached the door to the apartment. She fished her keys from her pocket and unlocked the door for everyone to go inside.
"That is fine darling." Loki answered. "Do you need any help?" He asked as he stepped inside the apartment.
"You can help if you'd like to," Emily answered. She walked in the kitchen and began getting things out of the fridge.
"You've worked your leg enough. Go sit down, I'll help." Mary told Loki as she walked into the apartment. "Can you make sure he behaves?" She asked Steve.
Steve chuckled but nodded. "Yeah, I'll watch over him. C'mon Loki, we can find something to do in the living room."
Loki nodded and followed Steve into the living room. He took his usual seat on the couch, muttering under his breath the entire time.
"Loki, why're you pouting?" Steve asked as he sat beside him. "Mary is right. You need the rest."
"I don't like being injured and I don't like the limitations it causes." Loki mumbled.
"Neither do I," Steve commented. "But it will get better. I'll help you get stronger again."
Loki gave Steve a confused look, then nodded. "Thank you. I appreciate the kindness."
"You're welcome," Steve said softly. "Is everything okay?"
"I'm just confused by you. You have been nice to me from the time I ended up here." Loki admitted.
Steve shrugged. "When I saw all of the evidence of what really happened, I decided to see who you really are."
"What do you think of who I am?" Loki asked curiously.
"You're a good man," Steve said honestly. "But you're misunderstood."
"I've been saying that my entire life." Loki chuckled.
"Well, you have me on your side," Steve said proudly.
"It truly means a lot to me." Loki said sincerely.
Steve smiled and nodded. "I'm glad."
"Would we be... friends now?" Loki asked hesitantly.
"Yes," Steve chuckled. "Yes we are."
Loki couldn't help but flash a goofy grin. "It's been a while since I've made a friend."
"Well, you have me now."
"I am proud to call you a friend." Loki said sincerely.
"Are you two bonding?" Mary asked happily. She carried plates for her and Steve.
"We are in fact," Steve answered.
Emily walked in after Mary, holding a plate for Loki and herself. "I'm glad you two are getting along."
"You know, they would likely make a good team, if they needed to." Mary told Emily.
"I agree. Seeing them working together would be quite amazing." Emily sat on the other side of Loki and handed him his plate.
Loki took his plate and immediately picked up a chip and ate it. "I think we could make a good team as well." He admitted.
"When you're well, you should try a test run working together," Emily suggested.
"What kind of test run?" Loki asked curiously.
"Just try things out in the arena," Emily clarified. "Only when you're strong enough."
Loki nodded. "Steve said he will help me train based on what is safe for my recovery."
Steve nodded. "I'll start putting things together when we come back from the trip."
"Do we know when we're leaving yet?" Loki asked curiously.
"Tony sent a text earlier, but I didn't get to look at it. I imagine he sent it to everyone," Emily commented as she pulled her phone from her pocket.
"Oh yeah, he sent it to me as well." Mary blushed, remembering why she ignored the message.
"It looks like we're leaving the day after tomorrow. We'll be back the day after New Years," Emily informed.
"Wait, what will happen with the fish when we're gone?" Loki asked, suddenly concerned.
"I can tell the service that comes to stock and clean to feed them and take care of the tank, it's okay," Emily assured.
"What if they don't know how much to feed them?" Loki asked, not at all comforted by the idea.
"I will write everything down on how to take care of them," Emily replied.
"Why can't we just take them with us?" Loki questioned seriously.
"Because they will not travel well," Emily explained.
"I will have to think about this and make up a clear and concise schedule for the person taking care of them."
Emily nodded as she ate a couple of chips. "You can do that."
"I will work on that this evening." Loki agreed, then picked up his sandwich and took a bite.
"You're awfully protective of those fish," Steve commented. "It's not a bad thing though."
"Why wouldn't I be? I am their family now." Loki shrugged.
Steve grinned and nodded. "Yeah, I guess you are."
"They also have all of the babies that also need protection and care." Loki added.
"I can only imagine if we were to get a dog," Emily commented. "It would be treated more than well."
"Which ones are dogs again? I can't remember." Loki told Emily.
"They have fur and four legs and come in various sizes. Like Lady and the Tramp," Emily clarified.
"Oh! Yes, those are quite cute. We should have one." Loki agreed.
Emily chuckled and ate more chips. "I doubt Tony would allow that."
"He didn't have an issue with the fish." Loki pointed out.
"Fish don't bark, shed hair, need walked, or can pee or poop on the carpet," Steve commented.
"Is there a way to avoid those things?" Loki asked curiously.
"Some of them, but not all of them," Emily answered. "Dogs take a lot more work than fish."
"I will stick to fish then." Loki agreed.
Emily chuckled and leaned over to kiss Loki's cheek. "Is your sandwich good?"
"It is perfect darling." Loki said, before taking the final bite.
Emily smiled and finished her own sandwich before she put her plate on the coffee table. "I need to start packing soon."
"Don't we have two days still?" Loki asked Emily.
"Yeah, but we'll be gone a little while. I don't like packing the day we leave," she explained. "It's just a habit I have."
"Alright darling. When would you like to start packing?" Loki asked Emily.
"This afternoon, maybe. If not then, tomorrow I will for sure," she answered.
"We can start packing today." Loki assured Emily.
"What should we do the rest of the day?" Emily asked.
"Has the weather improved enough for us to leave the tower?" Loki asked curiously.
"There's a decent amount of snow. What would you want to do?" Emily asked.
"I would want to go to the pet store." Loki chuckled.
"I can see if someone can drive us," Emily said. "I'll have to ask Tony if anyone is available."
"If you don't think the weather is good, we don't have to, darling." Loki told Emily.
"It's not the greatest," she said honestly. "But I don't know what else we would do. A movie marathon maybe?"
"Which movies?" Loki asked curiously.
"I would say Jurassic Park, but I'm not sure if it would frighten you," Emily said.
"Frighten me?" Loki asked, confused.
"The animals can be pretty intense in the films. People die. The animals are dinosaurs, which are real but haven't lived in a very long time," Emily explained.
"I don't know what a dinosaur is, but I am intrigued." Loki said truthfully.
"Jarvis, can you show dinosaurs on the tv please?" Emily asked.
"Would you like factual images, or images from the franchise?" Jarvis asked Emily.
"Start with factual, then show franchise please."
A moment later, the TV turned on, displaying some of the more commonly known dinosaurs. "Shall I prepare a short lesson?" Jarvis asked.
Emily smiled. "Sure! We can all watch."
Loki moved to sit on the floor in front of the TV as the lesson began. He watched intently, taking in all of the information.
Steve smirked. "You love to learn, don't you?"
"I do. I will never miss an opportunity to learn something new." Loki said truthfully.
"That's a great trait to have," Steve said.
"I enjoy it." Loki admitted, never once taking his eyes off of the TV. After the lesson, the preview for the movie played.
"If you like the preview, we'll watch it," Emily said.
Loki nodded. "I do want to see it. Can we have popcorn?"
"Yes, we can." Emily stood and walked into the kitchen to make some.
"Do you need any help?" Mary called after Emily.
"It won't take long!" Emily called back over the current bag that popped in the microwave.
Loki moved to sit on the couch again as Jarvis prepared the movie on the TV. "Has everyone else seen these?"
"I've only seen the first one." Mary answered.
"Same here," Steve added. "But I know there's three or four of them now."
"This is going to be fun then. The only other movie marathon I've seen is the magic series." Loki said happily.
Emily quickly returned with two bowls of popcorn and handed one to Mary. "This series is action packed. It's really good." She sat down beside Loki and handed him his bowl of popcorn.
Loki took the bowl and took a handful as the movie started to play. "I already want the dinosaurs to win."
"Some of them might," Emily chuckled as the movie began playing on the tv.
"Good. I am still hurt from the snake being killed." Loki admitted.
"I know. You liked the snake in Harry Potter," Emily said, then ate a handful of popcorn.
"I did. He was just misunderstood." Loki shrugged.
"He was answering to the command of a bad person, but I agree," Emily agreed.
"Exactly, the person was bad. It wasn't his choice." Loki murmured.
Emily rubbed Loki's knee as the movie began playing. "It's okay Loki."
Loki took another bite of popcorn, then rested his hand over Emily's. It didn't take long for him to become fully engrossed in the movie.
A smile came to Emily's face when Grant and Ellie saw the big longneck dinosaur for the first time. "It's always so pretty."
Loki gave an audible gasp, and his eyes went wide with wonder. "Can we go there?"
"I wish hon. This story is make believe," she answered.
"No, it isn't. They are standing right there with the dinosaur." Loki insisted.
"I need to remember to have you take a lesson on movie making," Emily commented.
"I will have the lesson done for me after the movies." Loki said, captivated by the movie.
Emily smiled and took more popcorn. "I knew you'd like these."
"I think I do." Loki mumbled. He soon forgot all about the popcorn as he watched the humans try to survive.
When the movie ended, Emily stretched her arms above her head and looked over to see Steve and Mary had fallen asleep. "Do you want to see the next one?" She asked softly.
"Yes, I do." Loki said. He realized he still had a nearly full bowl of popcorn and grabbed a few pieces.
Emily chuckled and grabbed the remote to start the next movie before she yawned. "What time is it?"
"It is four in the afternoon." Jarvis replied.
"After this movie, I'll have to start dinner," Emily said aloud.
"What are we having for dinner?" Loki asked curiously.
"I don't know yet. What're you in the mood for?"
"It's been a long time since we've had those noodles. Can we have them?" Loki asked Emily.
"Lo mein? I don't know how to make that," Emily answered.
"Don't you order it, and someone brings it?" Loki asked curiously.
"I can. Would you like Chinese?" Emily asked.
"Would it be alright?" Loki asked, his tone hopeful.
Emily chuckled and kissed his cheek. "Of course, honey."
"Then yes, I want Chinese food. Mostly just the noodles." Loki said happily.
"I'll order more than noodles, but we can get Chinese tonight. You might like more than the noodles."
"I feel like it's been forever since I've had the noodles." Loki chuckled.
"It has been a while," she agreed. "When do you want me to order? After this movie?"
"Yes, that would be good. That will give them time to wake and decide what they want as well." Loki agreed.
Emily nodded and focused on the movie again. "I love Jeff Goldblum. He's a wonderful actor."
"I like the dinosaurs." Loki said, quickly getting engrossed in the movie when it started.
"I like them too," Emily agreed as she leaned her head on his shoulder.
Loki wrapped one arm around Emily, holding her close. "When do they take over the world?"
"I'm not sure," Emily answered. "But they could if people aren't careful."
"People are already not being careful. The enclosures are poorly done for such magnificent creatures." Loki commented.
"Well on the island for this movie, they're free already," Emily explained.
"That's good. The way they were trapped in the last one was quite upsetting." Loki admitted.
"They put them in habitats so other dinosaurs and people stay safe," Emily explained. "Zoos are like that too."
"I understand that part. Their areas were just poorly done. Had they been done properly, perhaps the dinosaurs would have been less hostile." Loki replied.
Emily smiled and snuggled against Loki further. "I agree."
Loki took another bite of popcorn, then got lost in the movie again. Towards the end, Mary woke and watched the last few minutes with them.
"I'm glad they saved the baby Rex and the parent in the end and got them back to the island," Emily said as she sat up and stretched.
"I am as well. The baby was so adorable." Loki answered.
"He really does want the dinosaurs to win." Mary quietly chuckled.
Emily laughed along with Mary. "Hey, I'm all for the dinosaurs too. The park that was the most put together was the newest one."
"Newest one? Is there more?" Loki asked curiously.
"Two more," Emily confirmed.
"We are going to need more popcorn." Loki said, looking down at the empty bowl.
Emily laughed. "Let's order chinese first."
"It's been a while since we last had Chinese. I still remember the noodle obsession though." Mary chuckled.
"I figured some lo mein and rice and other goodies would be perfect for tonight," Emily said.
"Loki might also like orange chicken or sweet and sour chicken." Mary suggested.
"Oooh I love both. Crab Rangoon sounds great too," Emily commented as she started ordering with her phone.
Mary turned and placed a soft kiss to Steve's lips to wake him so he could pick what he wanted.
Steve sighed softly and lazily returned Mary's kiss. "That's a nice way to wake up," he murmured.
Mary chuckled happily. "Emily is ordering Chinese for dinner. Would you like some?"
"Mmm that sounds good. I like shrimp fried rice and egg rolls," he replied back softly.
"I forgot about egg rolls." Mary admitted, then looked over at Emily. "Can you add a couple orders of egg rolls?"
Emily nodded as she tapped at the screen of her phone. "Those are easy to add."
"Did you get the shrimp fried rice?" Mary asked Emily. "I'd like broccoli beef please."
"Yes I did, and I'll add broccoli beef too," Emily answered.
"Don't forget the noodles." Loki chuckled.
"I could never forget your noodles," Emily said as she finished the order.
"Thank you darling. Can we start the next movie while we wait?" Loki asked.
"It's going to take about a half an hour, so we can start the next movie," Emily approved.
"I am going to make more popcorn." Loki said, standing up. "Would anyone like anything?"
"I'm okay," Steve answered.
"Could you get a bottle of water for me babe?" Emily asked.
"Sure." Loki replied.
"Water for us as well." Mary added.
"Coming right up." Loki said, then walked into the kitchen to make the popcorn and get the bottles of water.
Emily grinned as she watched Loki leave. "I don't think I've ever seen you so smitten with someone Em. I'm glad you've found the one," Steve said.
"Thank you, Steve."
"It's so obvious to everyone how much you two love each other." Mary added.
"I think we met each other at the right time in our lives. I tried to ignore it, but the heart wants what it wants," Emily said.
"I agree. He would be gone without you. I don't know a lot about his past, but I can tell he's changed a lot." Mary admitted.
"I have changed." Loki agreed as he walked back into the room. He set the bowl of popcorn down, then handed out bottles of water to everyone.
Emily leaned against Loki and turned to kiss his cheek. "You might have changed, but I still love you. I always will."
"You wouldn't have loved who I was." Loki said simply. "You made me want to be a better person."
"I focus on how you are now, not the past." Emily stated.
"I know that and I'm a better person because of it." Loki said truthfully.
Emily grinned and pecked Loki's lips. "I cannot wait to witness your wedding. I can only imagine the vows you two will have for one another," Steve commented.
"I have been studying that tradition and wish to write my own vows." Loki answered.
"I cannot wait to hear them," Emily murmured.
"You will." Loki promised.
Emily settled back against Loki and looked at the tv as the next movie began playing. "I can't wait."
"Neither can I." Loki said softly. He took a couple pieces of popcorn and popped them into his mouth.
Emily got up from the couch when the doorbell rang and quickly retrieved the cardboard bag of food from the man at the door. "Where are we eating?" She called out over the roar of dinosaurs from the sound system.
"I don't think you're going to get Loki away from the movie, so in here." Mary called back.
"Okay!" Emily carried the large bag into the living room and sat on the couch before she began dividing up everything.
Loki vaguely took his food and set it on the coffee table. He was far too engrossed in watching the humans attempt to survive the Pteranodons in the old aviary.
"Enjoying your movies?" Emily asked as she watched Loki move and sit on the floor in front of the coffee table.
"Uh huh." Loki mumbled.
"He must really like this movie to set his noodles aside." Mary chuckled.
"If he likes this one, he'll love the newest movie." Emily opened her rice and grabbed a fork to begin eating.
"It will be new for all of us." Mary chuckled, then took a bite of broccoli.
"It's really good. I saw it in theaters when it came out," Emily replied.
"I remember you inviting me to go, but I had to work." Mary said, then took another bite of her food.
"I think I saw a clip of it in a commercial," Steve commented. "I haven't been to a cinema in a long time."
Emily spooned more rice and took a bite. "I think everyone will like it."
"We should all go sometime! I think Loki would really enjoy it." Mary told Emily.
"He would be amazed at how big the screen is," Emily agreed as she watched Dr. Grant and the rest of the characters being rescued.
"He would be and the surround sound." Mary said softly, to not interfere with Loki watching the movie.
Steve grinned as he watched the conclusion of the movie while he ate his shrimp fried rice. "Ugh, this is hitting the spot."
"Is there another one?" Loki asked as the credits began to roll.
Emily chuckled. "Yes, there's one more as of right now. It's set closer to the technology we have now."
"Can we watch it?" Loki asked, still sitting on the floor in front of the television.
"Yes, we can. Why don't you eat though? It's gonna get cold," Emily pointed out.
"I forgot about the food being here." Loki admitted. "If I eat, can we watch it after?"
"We can watch while you eat, as long as you remember to do so," Emily told him.
"I feel like I should eat first or I will forget." Loki said truthfully.
Emily smirked. "Go ahead then," she told him. Then Emily ate more of her rice, quickly feeling full. "I'm not sure I'll have room for the rangoon."
Loki got up and moved back to the couch. He picked up his box of noodles and opened it. "It smells so good."
"I got a double order, so you will have leftovers for tomorrow too."
"That was good thinking, thank you." Loki said happily. He leaned over and gave Emily a loving kiss, then turned his attention to the box of noodles.
Emily blushed softly and took a couple more bites of her food. "I don't know how much more I can eat."
"You can keep it for later darling." Loki pointed out, then he took a bite of his noodles. "I missed these so much."
"I will. I'm sure there will be a decent amount of leftovers," Emily replied.
"At least we already have lunch for tomorrow." Loki chuckled, then took another decent bite.
"Yeah, it makes things a bit easier," Emily agreed.
Loki ate a good portion of the noodles, then moved back to his spot in front of the TV. "I'm ready to watch it now."
"Has everyone eaten their fill? I can put the leftovers in the fridge before the last movie," Emily said as she stood and stretched.
"Yeah, we're done. I will carry some of it because I need a new drink." Mary said as she stood.
"Okay." Emily gathered some of the containers and walked into the kitchen. She quickly put them in the fridge and grabbed the pitcher of sweet tea and poured a couple of glasses. "Do you want tea Mary?"
"Yes, and I'll take a glass for Steve as well." Mary replied, adding her containers after Emily moved from the fridge.
Emily poured out two more glasses of sweet tea. "Do you want lemon or orange with yours? I'm adding orange to mine and cutting some for Loki."
"Lemon with mine, but I'm not sure about Steve." Mary answered.
"I'm not sure either," Emily said as she grabbed an orange and quickly sliced it along with a lemon. "I'll put some in a bowl."
"Good idea. Is it good with orange? I've never tried that." Mary told Emily.
"It's really good. A southern thing," Emily replied as she put lemon slices in one bowl and oranges in another.
"Do you mind if I try a sip of yours?" Mary asked, wanting to try it.
"Sure, I don't mind." Emily grabbed a thick slice of orange and squeezed a little juice into the tea before pushing the orange slice between the ice cubes. "Take a drink."
Mary took the glass and took a small sip. "That's actually really good!"
"It's how my grandmother makes it. I almost always have orange in my sweet tea, unless I'm in the mood for lemon."
"I think I'll have orange in mine as well." Mary told Emily.
Emily smiled brightly. "Awesome." She quickly did the same to Mary's glass. "Could you help carry everything in the living room?"
"Of course. I came with you to help." Mary reminded Emily. She picked up the glasses for her and Steve, and the small bowl of orange and lemon slices.
"Thank you." Emily followed Mary when she walked back in the living room and sat beside Loki once more. "Here's tea for you."
"Thank you." Loki said as he took his glass and sipped it.
Mary carefully set the glasses and bowl on the coffee table, then handed Steve his. "There's lemon and orange. I wasn't sure how you liked your tea."
"Thank you." Steve leaned over and kissed Mary's cheek. "I think I'll try orange."
Mary handed Steve the bowl so he could add the amount of orange slices he wanted. "It's really good with orange."
Steve grinned and added a couple of slices to his tea. "Thank you hon."
"You're welcome." Mary said as she sat next to Steve and snuggled up to him.
"Can we watch the movie now?" Loki asked eagerly.
"Yes love. Jarvis begin Jurassic World," Emily instructed.
Loki set his glass of tea down then stood and walked over to take his seat on the floor to watch the movie. He didn't have to wait long as Jarvis started it almost immediately.
Emily smiled as she watched the two lead boys in the film see the successful park of Jurassic World. "If you have questions, just ask."
Loki's face resembled the younger boy, just full of shock and amazement. "I will." He mumbled.
"You know, I always thought the main guy in this was pretty good looking," Emily commented as Owen Grady came on the screen.
"He isn't bad looking." Loki admitted.
"I thought you would get a bit jealous," Steve admitted.
"Jealous? Why would I get jealous?" Loki asked curiously.
Steve shrugged. "Some men do when their partners say they find another person attractive."
"I do not see a problem with admitting someone is attractive. It is merely a comment." Loki shrugged.
"That's mature of you," Emily said. If I said that around Tony, he'd flip his shit... he has actually.
"The way I see it, you may think he is nice to look at, but it's my ring you wear." Loki pointed out.
Emily blushed and looked down at her engagement ring, unable to not marvel at it. "Yes, I do."
"It's called being secure in a relationship. I trust you and therefore, do not worry." Loki added.
"Just as I trust you," Emily replied.
Steve grinned and pulled Mary closer to him so he could gently kiss her cheek, enjoying the loving feeling he felt.
Mary blushed softly and curled up closer to Steve as they watched the movie.
It wasn't long until the group got to see the Indominus Rex for the first time, making Emily grin at everyone's gasp as the large animal escaped her holding by tricking Owen and a security guard. Loki chuckled happily when the scene played that showed the Indominus Rex attacking the security guards sent to subdue her. "I really like this one!"
Emily chuckled. "She is quite pretty," she agreed. "But she's a big danger to the park."
"She's just misunderstood." Loki muttered in reply.
"The people made her without taking her instincts into account. They made a new animal with DNA that shouldn't go together," Steve said. They all watched as they revealed the Indominus was killing other dinosaurs for sport.
"Exactly." Loki said, agreeing with Steve. "These idiots don't know anything at all about the magnificent creatures they have."
"They have to pay for their mistake," Emily commented as the movie progressed and Owen and Claire searched for her nephews in the wilderness of the park.
"Yes, but not all of them. I have decided that a couple of them should be allowed to live." Loki told Emily.
Emily chuckled. "Who would that be?"
"The two children, obviously. Owen can also live, and so can Mr. Masrani. I am undecided about Claire. Oh, Lowery and Barry can also live." Loki answered.
"I guess we'll have to see what happens." Emily watched as the helicopter crashed into the aviary, making her frown at losing Mr. Masarani. The kids made it back to the park and reunited with Claire and Owen as they fought off the different flying dinosaurs. "I'm sorry you lost one of the people you liked, Loki."
"He was supposed to live. He was one of the few who actually cared." Loki said, clearly upset.
"I know, love. What happened was an accident." Emily reached down and rubbed Loki's back as it became night in the film and Hoskins was helping InGen evacuate the lab.
"He's the one who needs to be killed." Loki snapped when he saw Hoskins. "He's one of the most disgusting creatures ever!"
"It looks like he's still wanting to use the raptors," Steve commented just as Owen got out of the jeep and hit Hoskins square in the jaw.
Loki gave a chuckle when Hoskins got hit. "Please tell me he gets killed."
"I'm not saying anything." Emily giggled.
"Please, that's the only thing I'll ask you about, I promise." Loki pleaded.
"But it would give away a part of the story if I told you," Emily answered. Loki muttered under his breath but went back to watching the movie, making her chuckle. The movie continued as Owen got on his motorcycle and began riding it while the raptors searched for the Indominius Rex.
Loki scooted closer to the tv, fully engrossed in watching the raptors. He didn't take his eyes off the screen until the raptors were fired upon. When one was injured, he made a sound between a gasp and surprised yell, then got up. "I'm done with this." He mumbled as he walked into the bedroom.
Emily quickly paused the film. "Should I go after him?" Emily asked as she turned to Steve and Mary.
"He really doesn't understand the concept of a movie, does he?" Mary asked. "If you can find some way to comfort him, I would."
"But what do I tell him?" Emily asked.
"I don't know. I wouldn't try to explain that it's fiction right now. Just be there?" Mary suggested.
"It does have a happy ending... mostly," Emily said then rubbed the back of her neck. "Maybe this was a bad idea."
"Just go calm him down. I don't think it was a bad idea, he just has a lot to learn." Mary said sympathetically.
Emily frowned. "I don't know if I can help," she murmured but stood and walked into their bedroom. She could see Loki sitting on the bed, looking out the window, watching the snow fall.
"I'm fine. You can finish watching." Loki mumbled.
"No you're not," Emily said quietly. "I should have thought more before I showed you those films, helped you understand what a film is first."
"I just don't understand how they can so easily hurt the animals." Loki sighed.
"Dangerous animals like that cause a lot of problems. If there's an animal that kills someone, they relocate it if they can. If not, they have to do what's right for everyone before more casualties are made."
"They hadn't killed anyone though. They weren't even given a chance." Loki argued.
"Darling, the movie gets better," Emily said. "There is a little more death, but it doesn't end horribly."
"Do more raptors die?" Loki asked.
"Not by humans, no," Emily answered.
"What do you mean, not by humans?" Loki asked suspiciously.
"I don't know if you would want me to tell you how everything ends," Emily said softly. "I feel bad for getting you to watch the films. I feel like it's my fault."
"It's not your fault darling." Loki said truthfully.
"I feel like it is. I'm the one that got you interested in the movies," Emily replied.
"I don't blame you at all darling. I just care deeply for the animals." Loki explained.
"Do you want me to turn off the film?" She asked. "We don't have to finish it."
Loki shook his head. "No, we should finish it."
Emily walked over to Loki and bent down to kiss his cheek. "I'll be right beside you."
Loki stood and pulled Emily into a comforting hug. "I'm sorry I got so upset."
"It's alright Loki. It happens." Emily hugged him tightly in return.
"Are you mad at me?" Loki softly asked.
"No Loki, I'm not mad at you. I just wasn't expecting this reaction from you. That's all."
"Are you disappointed?" Loki asked softly. "I will try to control my reactions better." He promised.
"Loki, I'm not disappointed. After this film I will make sure that you learn what a film is and how they're made. It will help you understand what's going on better." Emily leaned up and kissed him softly. "Are you ready to join the others again?"
Loki returned her kiss, but still held onto her. "Yes, I'm ready."
Emily ran her lips along his jaw and kissed against his pulse. "Then let's join them."
Loki started to relax when he felt Emily's soft, warm lips against his skin. "Alright." He finally released her and took her hand, then led them back into the sitting room.
"Okay, everything is better... now." Emily smirked as Mary and Steve quickly pulled apart from a heated kiss. "Should we finish the movie tomorrow?"
"N-no... we can finish it tonight." Mary said, blushing deeply.
Emily chuckled. "Okay." She led Loki to the couch and they both sat down. "Jarvis, you can continue the film."
Loki sat on the couch for a moment, but when the movie started, he moved back to his spot on the floor. "Is he going to be alright?" Mary softly askedEmily.
"He will be," Emily answered quietly as she watched Owen, Claire, and the boys run into the lab to get away from the raptors.
Mary listened carefully as the movie went quiet to increase suspense. "Is he muttering spells?" She asked Emily, only faintly able to hear Loki.
"I'm not sure," Emily murmured as Hoskins explained that InGen was in control of everything when Echo jumped out from the dark.
Loki gave a noticeable jump from surprise, then slyly glanced around to see if anyone had seen him jump. "What does that spell do?" Mary asked curiously, taking a shot in the dark that it was a spell.
"It will increase their strength." Loki muttered in reply.
Emily smiled softly. "Pay attention Loki," she commented as Hoskins tried to show Echo he was kind, only for her to attack and kill him.
Loki jumped in surprise again, then cheered out loud. "Finally!"
"I knew you'd like that," Emily praised.
"That is the best part!" Loki said happily.
Emily smiled as she turned her attention to the tv once more to see Owen and Claire run back outside to be greeted by the Indominus, but Blue and the other raptors protect them.
Loki started muttering his spell again as he watched the fight. When the Indominus was grabbed and pulled into the water, he gasped and cursed under his breath. "I don't like this one at all."
"I think they weren't feeding the Mosasaurs enough and that's why it took the Indominus," Emily said as she watched the Rex walk off. "But you'll like to know that the T Rex is the same one from the first film."
"They showed that they did feed her. Did they never feed her between the shows?" Loki asked, disturbed by the comment. "I'm so happy the Rex lived through everything!"
"They fed her, but they might not have been feeding her enough unknowingly," Emily explained. "But the rex makes me happy too."
"I hope they fix that problem before they try again. She should have plenty of food." Loki insisted.
Emily watched as the film ended with the children being reunited with their parents. "I guess we'll have to see."
"I guess it wasn't terrible, but I am not happy about a lot of it." Loki sighed.
"I know you aren't. Maybe they'll make another one."
"I hope they continue to publish their story." Loki said truthfully.
"We'll have to wait and see," Steve yawned.
"Are you ready for bed?" Mary asked Steve.
Steve nodded and covered his mouth as he yawned again. "Is it okay if I stay?"
"I was hoping you would." Mary admitted. "Come on, let's go." She said, standing and stretching.
"I'm right behind you." Steve stood and stretched before he followed Mary into her room and shut the door behind them.
"I hope they aren't overly loud." Loki chuckled.
Emily looked at Mary's closed bedroom door. "You think they would?"
"I don't know." Loki chuckled. "Are you ready for bed as well?"
"Maybe not to sleep. But I'd love to lay down," Emily answered.
"I have a few things I need to look at on my phone, if it won't bother you." Loki told Emily.
Emily shook her head and stood to grab the bowl with the fruit in it. "It won't bother me. I'm going to put this in the fridge and clean up, then I'll be in bed."
"Do you want me to help you clean up?" Loki asked, not minding.
"Sure, if you'd like. It's just the glasses from everyone's tea," Emily replied sweetly, then turned and walked into the kitchen.
Loki stood and gathered up the glasses and carried them into the kitchen. "I will clean them in the morning."
Emily turned and wrapped her arms around Loki's waist once the fruit was where it belonged. "Thank you."
"Happy to help, darling." Loki replied with a smile.
She stood on her toes to kiss him softly. "Ready for bed?"
"I am ready to go in there. I do want to check those few things on the phone before I sleep." Loki reminded Emily as he wrapped his arms around her.
"You still can." Emily let go and led Loki into their bedroom. "I'll go brush my teeth and then I'll join you."
"Alright darling." Loki pulled Emily into a quick kiss before letting her go.
Emily went into the bathroom and brushed her teeth before she put on a silk dark green nightie before she walked back into the bedroom and climbed into bed. "What are you looking up?"
"Nothing much. Just a few things I'm curious about." Loki answered vaguely.
"Like what?" She asked curiously.
"Like how much the Mosasaurs should have been fed." Loki admitted.
"I don't know how much you'll find," Emily said softly. She turned and laid on her side, facing Loki.
"It's alright, I still want to look." Loki said, looking down at Emily with a smile.
Emily smirked as she watched him get engrossed in his phone before she turned to lay on her back once more and prop herself up to open a book and begin to read. "Search to your heart's content."
