Loki leaned against one of the trees that were sporadically placed about to help with beautifying the city. He had decided to move from his spot for he didn't see what he was looking for.
"How hard is it to find a single mortal female?" He grumbled to himself. As he started to walk down the sidewalk, he took no notice of a college girl who was running late and in his path. Needless to say, they collided into each other since neither paid much mind to where they were going.
"Umph! Watch i-" he looked to see the person he had run into. He was angry yes but found himself calmed when he laid eyes upon the mortal.
"I'm so sorry! I should have looked but I had to study and I woke up late and, and...Again, I'm really sorry." The girl who ran into him was apologizing profusely and picking up her notebook and loose papers filled with notes. Loki shook his head and bent down to help her. She was taken aback by this kind act. As he helped her, he got a better look at her. Average height and weight, brown hair with matching eye color. He took note of the red gold highlights in her hair. Her eyes had this effect on him. As if there was a spell on them to bewitch men. He shook some of the stray thoughts that crept up on him from his mind and focused on winning her trust.
Once all of her papers were picked up, the girl looked at her watch again, only to realize that she was alright on time. She sighed. "I'm sorry, had I actually looked..." she started when standing up. Loki put his hand on her shoulder and smiled.
"Don't worry about it. It was an accident." She sighed again but with relief. When she smiled he wondered even more if she wasn't an enchantress and didn't know it.
"I'm Suzanne by the way." She stated softly. Loki stood there for a moment going through names in his head that he could use instead of his real name.
"I'm Gabriel. Where pray tell are you going so quickly?" He mused.
"In the summer?" He questioned her. It was towards the beginning of July and here this girl was going to class and not doing normal mortal summer things. Needless to say, he was intrigued.
"Have to. I just moved here to finish up my degree. My last school got rid of many classes that I needed to take and I got fed up with it and moved here." He froze for a minute as he listened. She might actually know who he is. Surely she'd know of the Avengers. He swore mentally.
"Are you alright Gabriel?" She looked at him with a soften look that seemed to lighten her brown eyes. He shook his head and smiled.
"No my dear, I'm quite alright. I was just thinking if you didn't move here too long ago, then you might know of the Avengers and their exploits." He was waiting for her reaction. She just smiled.
"Yes, I do. I could only tell you who Tony Stark is, that ego maniac...." She muttered the last part. Loki chuckled. Of course she'd know Stark. "But, that's the only one I could tell you off hand. So long as they protect the city and care about the civilians, I don't really care to be honest. I don't need a hero." She stated that last part firmly. Suzanne never believed in hero's. She wanted to save herself and left hero's to her books and movies. Loki found himself wanting to know more about her and hatched a plan.
"Say, you probably need to get going so how about this," he watched as her eyes seemed to light up, "meet me here tomorrow at 3 in the afternoon. We can talk and you can also study." She nodded in agreement.
"I would love that. And yes, I do need to get going, I'll see you tomorrow then Gabriel." She trotted off to class. He stood and watched as she left. She wouldn't be easy to break. No, he liked the challenge. Though, a few months should be adequate. Well, maybe when she graduates, he did believe in giving the girl a chance to complete what she wanted.
Loki smirked and turned and started to walk down the street. "Perfect"
