The Engagement is back on
The two boys walk into Loki's room and Caleb heard his Dad say "Please don't leave me. Please you are the only one who makes the pain stop and when I am near you doesn't hurt so please don't leave me Katarina please." Loki said as he cried.
"Mom, please don't call off your engagement because of us?" Caleb asked.
"Caleb, Darren where is Kaila?" Loki asked noticing that his daughter is not with them. Caleb and Darren looked around and they noticed that Loki was right and Kaila wasn't with them.
"She was right with us." Caleb said.
"She must have run off when we heard you talking about calling off the wedding." Darren added.
"Oh, my poor baby, I have to find her and tell…" Loki began and then he looked at Katarina.
"We'll find her Loki, and we talk to her." Katarina said. Katarina took Loki's hand and gave it a gentle squeeze. Loki nodded and then he and Katarina rose from their seats and headed off to find Kaila, the young boys following behind them.
"Where do you two think you're going?" Katarina asked.
"We want to help." Darren answered.
"Yes, so we are coming with you." Caleb agreed. Then he looked at his dad, "Please Dad let me and my cousin come with you and Mom." Caleb said with tears streaming down his cheeks. Loki looked at his beautiful Katarina, "The boys could be a big help. I think they should come with us." Loki said.
"Please Aunt Katarina, Kaila is my best friend and she would do the same thing for me and Caleb." Darren said. Katarina saw that her 15-year-old son and her 12-year-old nephew were crying and then she nodded and they all left Loki's room and they started looking for Kaila.
Meanwhile in Kaila's room she began to pack her bags with extra clothes for she hadn't master changing her clothes with magic and she grabbed most of her magic books that her papa had given to her on each of her birthdays and she also grabbed her stuff wolf that her papa had given to her on the day of her birth. While she was packing her belongings, tears were streaming down her cheeks for she was afraid to leave her home and her family but she knew that everyone will be much happier when she has finally left Asgard forever.
They looked all over the palace but they couldn't find Kaila anywhere. Then Loki remembers that Kaila goes to her room when she is scared and upset.
"I know where Kaila is." Loki said and he took off running down the hall with Katarina and the two boys running after him. The group reached Kaila's room and Loki began knocking on his daughter's door.
"Kaila, baby are you in there its Papa please baby answer me." Loki begged.
"Please just go away papa." Kaila said trying to choke back her tears.
"Baby, please open the door and just talk to me, let me help you." Loki said his voice full of worry.
"No. You can't help me know one can." Kaila said.
"Kaila, please tell me why you think I or anyone can't help you?" Loki asked.
"Because I destroy everything. First I killed my mama and now I have destroyed your chance at happiness with Katarina so I will leave and maybe Katarina will marry you when I leave Asgard forever." Kaila said through a new wave of fresh tears. Loki knew that he had to stop his little girl from blaming herself for what happened to her mother and he will tell her that it wasn't her fault and she didn't destroy his chance at happiness for they will all sit down and talk about it so he transported in to his daughter's room. Kaila looked up at her father as he appeared in her room.
"You can't change my mind, Papa. I must leave. It's best for everyone." She told him, as she continued to pack away her things. Loki walked over to his little girl and knelt down. He gently grabbed her hands and held them.
"Baby, don't leave. Nothing is your fault." He told her. "Yes, it is, Papa. It's my fault Mama is dead...I killed her...and now Lady Katarina wants to call off the wedding because of me. If I go you will be much happier." Kaila replied.
"Kaila, baby, none of this is your fault. None of it. I could never be happy without you." Loki told her and pulled her into his arms.
"I love you more than anything, baby." He whispered in her ear.
"No. you shouldn't love me. You should hate me for what I have done." Kaila said and she struggled to get away from her papa but Loki won't let her go.
"Papa please just let me go all I have done is cause you pain and heartache. Please let me go. Oh, I wish I had never been born." Kaila said as she continued to struggle.
"Kaila, stop your struggling right now young lady." Loki told his daughter, his tone taking on a scolding sound. He pulled back and held his daughter so that he could look into her eyes.
"I never, ever want to hear you wish to never have been born, again. You are the single greatest thing to ever happen in my life. You are my greatest joy and my greatest love. Don't you ever doubt that? You have only made me happy, Kaila. Do you understand me?" Loki could feel that he was lose his temper with is daughter and he knew that he had to calm down. Because no matter how angry he is, "I will never discipline my daughter or any of my children the way father did to me." Loki thought and he took some calming breaths and he began to calm down.
"Baby, do you understand me?" Loki asked calmly.
"Yes, papa I understand." Kaila said and she looked crestfallen. When Loki saw that his little girl looked crestfallen he wrapped his arms around his daughter and he held her close.
"Loki is everything okay in there?" Katarina asked sounding concerned.
"Everything is alright my dar…." Loki said breaking off before he says the word darling.
"Kaila, Loki can I come in and we can all talk?" Katarina asked, her voice sounding as if she were on the verge of tears. Loki used his magic to unlock the door and he used his magic to open the door and Katarina along with Caleb walked in and Loki closed and locked the door before Darren could walk in. Darren knocks on the door.
"Why can't I come in?" He asks.
"This is something the four of us need to talk about." Loki answered.
"It's okay, Darren. I'll come find you when we're done." Kaila called.
"Okay Kaila, I will be waiting for you and Caleb in the garden." Darren said.
"Please don't call off the wedding because of me. My papa needs you Lady Katarina you make my papa so happy." Kaila said as she runs to Katarina and she falls to her knees in front of Katarina and her tears soak into the carpet. Katarina kneels down and she pulls Kaila into her arms.
"Lady Katarina, please forgive me, I'm so sorry." Kaila said through her tears.
"Shh, it's alright." Katarina said and she looks at Loki and he runs over and he kneels down next to them and he takes Kaila into his arms and she looks at her papa. "Papa, please forgive me for what I have done to you and mama and Lady Katarina and her son Caleb. I don't deserve to be your daughter or a part of this family, all I do is cause pain and heartache." Kaila said through her tears.
"There is nothing to forgive, Baby." Loki said to his little girl.
"It's a very emotional time for everyone right now." Katarina agreed.
"You are my little sister...and sometimes siblings don't always get along, but I do love you, Kaila. Can you forgive me?" Caleb added.
"I forgive you brother." Kaila said and she held her family. Caleb looks at his parents.
"Mom, Dad are you still going to get married?" Caleb asked. Loki didn't know what to say but Katarina knew exactly what to say.
"Yes son, we are if Kaila's dad still wants me." Katarina said. Loki looked at Katarina and his daughter and his soon to be son.
"Of course, Katarina. I will always love and want you by my side." Loki said.
"Caleb, Kaila go and find your cousin you're Dad and I need to talk." Katarina said.
"Okay Mom, come on Kaila let's go." Caleb said pulling his sister with him. When the children left to find Darren. Loki and Katarina started talking about when they are married how they will discipline their children.
"Since we are still getting married, we need to talk about how we are going to raise our children together. Specifically, how we will discipline." Katarina said. Loki nodded and then he became worried and scared she saw her Loki looked worried and also very scared.
"Loki, darling what's wrong? Katarina asked concerned.
"Katarina, I want to tell you a story about my childhood and how my Father disciplined me." Loki said. Katarina nodded and then Loki began the story.
"When I was a child and I got into trouble or when Father believed I had done something wrong he would send me to pull me to the throne room and it didn't matter if we were alone he would yell at me Loki said.
"Oh, my poor sweet Loki, oh, please tell me that your father comforted you after your scolding?" Katarina asked hopefully. Loki shook his head sadly and began again.
"No, Katarina, after my scolding my father would send me to my room without any comfort and he grounded me to my room for a week or even longer. I cried myself to sleep every night until I was no longer grounded. He only did that to me and he never did it to Thor." Hearing this Katarina started crying and Loki didn't know why she was crying.
"Katarina, sweetheart are you alright? Why are you crying?" Loki asked concerned.
"Oh, my sweet Loki, it breaks my heart to hear how your father treated you as a child." Katarina said as tears streamed down her cheeks. When Loki hears and sees how upset his sweet Katarina is, he pulls her into his arms and he holds her close as she cries into his chest.
"Shh, there, there my love it's alright please don't cry. You know I can't bear to see you cry." Loki said as he began to rub her back trying to calm her.
"Loki, my love, we will never do that to our babies. We will discipline with love not anger for your father disciplined you in anger and he didn't comfort you or tell you that he loves you and that you are forgiven and it breaks my heart how someone can do that to a child." Katarina said still crying into his chest.
"Katarina, my love, I absolutely agree with you on this. Here is the reason why I will never scold my daughter or her siblings when I am angry or in front of people. It would break my heart knowing that I made our babies cry. No matter what our children do they will never be yell at out of anger and this also applies to our children who are not yet born." Loki said.
"Thank you, Loki, that makes me feel much better." Katarina said still in Loki's loving embrace.
"You are most welcome my love, for I have always disciplined Kaila the way my Mother disciplined me and my brother Thor." Loki said. Katarina looked at Loki and he saw that she wanted to ask him something. "You can ask me anything my dear." Loki said.
"Loki, how did your mother discipline you and your brother?" Katarina asked.
"Well when we got into trouble mother you send us to our rooms for a timeout. Then later mother would call us to come out of the corner and she would pick me up so I could sit on her lap while Thor sat next to her on his or my bed. Growing up Thor I shared a room together, but as we got older we no longer shared a room together. Mother, would ask us why we were in timeout and when we told her, she would give us a big hug and a kiss and she would tell us that she loves us and she forgives us, but we will have to stay in our room for a week." Loki said.
"Your mother is so very kind." Katarina said and Loki just nodded as he held his future wife in his arms.
Meanwhile in the garden Caleb and Kaila found Darren sitting in one of the golden apple trees. Seeing his friends entering the garden he jumped down out of the tree and Kaila ran up to her friend and hugged him. "I'm sorry." She told him.
"Kaila, my friend why are you apologizing Darren asked hugging his friend and then he looked at his cousin but Caleb just shrugged his shoulders and then they saw tears streaming down her cheeks.
"Kaila, what's wrong my friend please talk to me." Darren said.
"Oh, Darren I am so sorry that you were not included into the conversation and how I keep on worrying about everything and getting so upset oh please forgive me my friend and please forgive me brother." Kaila said as more tears streamed down her already wet tear-stained cheeks. Caleb walked over to his cousin and his sister and he placed a hand on his sister's trembling shoulder.
"Everything is alright." Caleb told her. "There is nothing to forgive." Darren added, hugging his friend tighter. Kaila looks at her big brother and her best friend and then they walked over to one of the benches and sat down and both boys held Kaila.
Back in Kaila's room Loki looked at his beautiful betrothed, "Katarina my love I have to go and find my daughter and I need to make sure she is alright." Loki said.
"Our daughter Loki, she will be my daughter too well as soon as we are married." Katarina said. "Oh Katarina, I already think of Caleb and Asta as my son and my daughter and I know that Kaila thinks of you of as her mother and I know you think of her as a daughter." Loki said.
"Well course I think of her as my daughter Loki and I always wanted another daughter." Katarina said and Loki just smiled at his beautiful Katarina.
"How did I ever get so lucky as to find someone as wonderful and loving as you, Katarina?" Loki asked. Katarina smiled and her cheeks flushed slightly.
"I believe I am the lucky one." She replied. Loki wrapped his arms around Katarina and pulled her in for a gentle kiss. They then left the room and found Kaila in the garden with Caleb and Darren and they see that the children are playing tag and Loki hears his sweet little girl laughing and he also sees that she is smiling. Katarina puts her hand on Loki's shoulder.
"Kaila, looks much happier doesn't she Loki." Katarina said and she led him over to one of the benches and they sat down and they watched the children play until Kaila saw her papa sitting on one of the benches with Caleb's mom. She ran towards her papa and Loki got up and he ran towards his daughter and he picked her up and he twirls her around in his arms. Kaila started giggling and her papa is also laughing.
"Papa I don't feel so good." Kaila said and Loki stop twirling her and he set Kaila back on her feet. She swayed and he she fainted into her papa's arms.
"Kaila, baby please wake up." Loki said trying not panic. He knelt to the grass with Kaila still in his arms.
"Kaila! Can you hear me? Please wake up, please, little one," Loki begs his daughter quietly but she didn't wake up and he looked at Katarina. She saw that her beloved Loki looked worried.
"Loki what's wrong?" Katarina asked. "Kaila fainted and she won't wake up and I have to get her to the healing room." Loki said and he ran towards the healing room and Katarina along with Caleb and Darren were all following Loki back into the palace.
