Aura was shocked at how easy it was for him to change her appearance. All of her tattoo and piercing disappeared in an instant. She looked to him and smiled. “Thank you,” she said in her new gruff, male voice.
“It looks just like me,” she said pointing to the doll, “Why doesn’t it move?” Aura had no doubt in the god’s abilities, she just meant it as a harmless question. They had to move quickly, breaking out of S.H.I.E.L.D was no joke. She moved to the scanner and placed her hand on it. “Why is it going so slow,” she asked impatiently, but as soon as the words came out of her mouth the doors unlocked. “Perfect,” she whispered and they walked through the doors.
Aura spied her bag on a table outside of the cell. She grabbed it and continued to walk toward what she thought was the exit. Then he stopped her. Coulson..fuck, she thought.
“Agent where are you going with that,” he asked pointing to the bag.
“I..just moving it sir,” she replied.
Coulson eyed her suspiciously, “Move along.”
“Yes sir,” she replied, thankful he did not question her further. She and Loki made it outside of the building. “After we round that corner will you change me back,” she asked.
Loki Odinson let out a huge sigh of relief once they cleared the compound. From the tension of the situation he had forgotten his invisible status to the world around him. Only she can see me, he reminded himself in a calming manner. No one is going to assault you.
Once they rounded the corner, he changed her appearance back flawlessly to what it was before. “To answer your question from earlier,” he began in a slightly embarrassed tone, “I cannot create life from nothingness. There are spells to accomplish this, but they are far beyond my scope of knowledge.” For someone who studied as much as he did, that was truly saying a lot. “To shape shift already living begins is one thing. To create life out of thin air is another. That takes a hand much more skilled than mine.”
Aura threw her mass of hair in to a messy bun atop her head. “I understand. Magic isn’t something you can just sort of throw together overnight. Which, by the way, I never explained to you how I got locked up,” she said with a glimmer in her eye. “These people didn’t take to kindly to the, uh..incident at my school and when I was going home they started questioning me. I was scared. I didn’t get to say much, but as soon as one of that guy Coulson’s men tried to handcuff me, and this is crazy, but some kind of..light came from my hands and struck him down. It was intense,” she continued. Aura finally had some energy back in her voice.
“I’m sorry,” she blushed, “I’m talking really fast aren’t I?” Being around Loki Odinson made Aura Denning happier than she had been in years. She wanted to know him. She wanted him to know her, something she did not let happen every day. It was truly remarkable how he could change her mood so quickly. “I think you could learn to create life,” she stated, “You’re intelligent. I can see that.”
The girl threw her bag over her shoulder and they began to walk back toward the city. She was surprised she hadn’t heard any sirens or alarms, Surely they know I’m gone by now.
Agent Barton had seen the whole event transpire from the rooftop. “Sir, I’ve got a visual. Its her,” he said in to his watch. Nick Fury, the director of S.H.I.E.L.D replied, “Let her go Barton. We got what we needed.”
“Loki,” she added with a tinge of sweetness in her voice, “Thank you.” Aura stood on her tip toes, the God of Lies was much taller than her, and kissed his cheek.
