The Awakening

” Ahhh we knew you would come this way!” The men grinned and ran towards them. ” Friends! I have retuned with my other comrades.” Thor exclaimed as he embraced them and the woman. Wanda’s eyes were clouded with red for a moment before clearing. ” The great Warrior Three and Lady Sif. How delightful to meet you so quickly.” Sif stopped and stared at the twin sets. Her brown eyes seemed to pierce right through them, but then she laughed. You must be Wanda and Pietro Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. We have heard much about you.” Her companions cheered with her and after meeting the rest of the team, they went with them to the Great Hall.

Sif stopped. “Odin desires for our guests to reach their accommodations before meeting him.” She eyed their incoming luggage and smirked. “The men shall follow Volstagg, Fandral, and Hogun to their chambers, all the women follow me.” She turned sharply down the left hall with Nat, Wanda and Joanna falling behind her. Thor grinned. “That is Sif for you now come friends!” He turned towards the guys, slightly startling Josh and Pietro. “Let us go!” Volstagg shook his head at Thor’s enthusiasm, but smiled. “Energized as always Thor. But do follow us.” They almost ran down the hallway after Hogun towards their separate rooms.

Sif lead them down the hallway, discussing the accommodations. “Nat shall stay with me while you two shall share a room. It’s separate by a wall so you won’t be totally apart or together.” Wanda and Joanna grinned and stared at the size of the double doors to their room. Sif opened the left one and motioned for Wanda to walk in. “I believe you shall like it.”
Wanda briskly walked in and gazed in awe at the aura the room gave. It’s medieval vibe come off the wall and tapestries. She ran towards the windows and looked at the city around. She glanced at her bookcases and her huge closet. She adored the fireplace with a sitting area. The red drapes and chandelier topped it all. It’s my perfect nook!

“Je to Perf!” (Its perf!) she exclaimed. Joanna clapped and noted the door in her wall. Sif nodded and Joanna rushed in. She crashed onto the hovering bed and gazed at electro-lights on the walls and ceiling. They sent streaks of neon color throughout the room and highlighted the futuristic vibe seething from the air. She glanced at the fire pit and bookcase ( which looks like the ones in my room at the Agency.) and also had a room-sized closet. Sif and Nat almost laughed as the girls jumped on their beds. Sif cleared her throat and the girl’s settled down on two chairs.

“The maids shall be here soon to help you prepare. Nat and I shall leave you two alone so we may also prepare.” Nat scoffed. “If I could I would just go in like this.” Sif laughed as they left. Wanda and Joanna exchanged puzzled expressions. Maids? Prepare for what? Joanna, I understand we have to behave in front of Odin, but do we really to dress? Then we can do that ourselves Wanda. Oh well…Joanna grabbed a pillow and flung it at Wanda. Wanda screamed and threw some back. For the next few minutes, joyous shouts fill that corridor. Afterwards, Joanna had settled for reading Little Woman and Wanda was playing a little harp she had found.

However, the tranquility of the room was burst by a soft tapping at the doors. Wanda looked up and placed the harp down. Joanna shut off the holobook and opened the door. A few maids came in and two lead Wanda back into her room before she could respond. “Wait..” Joanna started, but the head maid held up her hand. “Please Miss, we must do our job so if you would change please.” Joanna silently obeyed and let them continue. Man, I feel so awkward just standing here and being dressed like a doll. But I must respect their customs. Still feels weird none the less.

The younger maid, who was addressing Joanna’s silver locks, spoke up. “You have lovely hair miss. I understand if you aren’t used to this. The guards spoke of how you and your brother are agents so you prefer to serve others. But, maybe you could relax for once and let yourself be pampered for a bit.” She smiled a smile with her bright green eyes. “That’s enough Claire. Their escorts will be waiting for them.” The head maid cut in as she brought another dress in. Joanna smiled and winked at Claire. I feel you. I will. After what seemed twenty outfits later, Joanna stepped out ready to meet Wanda coming out prepared.

Two guards walked them down the hall towards the dining hall. Wanda glanced at Joanna’s sky blue dress, silver arm plates with a golden cape and bejeweled slippers. Her white hair had been done up in braids with a green ribbon weaved in. She had few accessories compared to Wanda. Joanna grinned at Wanda’s green dress with similar arm plates, but with a soft lilac cape. Welp, they sure know how to make an occasion formal. Oh Wanda, come on you look lovely! Okay okay, as do you. The guards stopped at a huge doorway and opened them. It led towards a stairway where everyone awaited them below.

Pietro zipped around the group as they went down the hallway. Thor grinned, “Be still small one. We have yet to reach thy quarters.” Pietro frowned and walked next to Josh. Josh grinned at his friend. “Your room will probably be bigger then mine since you run around all day.” Josh received a shove and then the two ran ahead, tackling each other. Steve and Clint smiled at boys. “Careful you don’t lose an eye.” Clint called out. Frandral shook his head as he stopped. “These will be your room. Sir Josh if you would so kindly enter the left door.” Josh got up from under Pietro and walked straight in.

Josh stood still in awe of the room. Ivy hung off the wall and the bed was like a nest on the wall. He stared at the fireplace on the rock and there were stone selves for book and other items he brought. There was a wardrobe for his clothes and he could feel the apple wood. The pillars looked more like stalagmites and the wall were painted with forest scenes. He looked down to see the gardens below him and a rope leading down. Woah! It’s like a cave in here and I have gardens to explore down there! This is perfectly match for me! I hope they got Joanna right, but this is awesome! He smiled at Thor and the others.

Volstagg let out a bellowing laugh before pushing Pietro towards a door. “Go, enter your room now. See what ye think of it.” Pietro nodded and zoomed inside. He crashed into a padded wall and gazed at the starry ceiling. He gasped at the queen bed and the tracks, ramps and courses spread throughout the room. He pressed a rock in the fireplace and it opened a part of the wall. He looked down as a pole lead to the training area below. He grinned wolfishly. “It’s prefect. It’s epic!” He spun around to meet them with a huge grin.

Hogun nodded. “We shall leave you two be then. A few maids and butlers shall enter shortly to prepare ye for the feast tonight!” The Warrior Three and Thor let out a joyous yell and the Avengers joined in. They left and Pietro ran around his room, trying out everything. Josh stood in the doorway, shaking his head. “You never stop do you? All I see is a blur, where is my friend?” He suddenly got tackled and they rolled on the floor into Josh’s room. “Sorry Josh, did you say something?” Pietro grinned as he dodged a hit form Josh.

Their antics were disturbed by a firm knock on the doors. Josh kicked Pietro off of him. “Come in!” He got up from the floor as a butler and maids entered. “Good day sirs. Sir Pietro, if you would please return to your quarters for the ladies to prepare you. My colleague will join you shortly. I am Clay, shall we begin Sir Josh.” Josh stood, kinda dumbfounded but nodded. “Y-yes sir.” He remained silent as they began the process. This feels kinda wrong. The time was passed in silence until Josh stepped out to see Pietro waiting. Guards came towards them. “Follow us please.”

They followed them quietly. Pietro leaned over to whisper. “That felt kinda weird being dressed.” Josh glanced Pietro outfit. It was close to Volstagg’s but with blue and silver hues. “I agree. I honestly know that is their job, but it felt strange.” Pietro snickered. Josh was dressed like Thor, just with green and brown. They entered a huge entry hall with an enormous staircase leading to the upper level. Everyone was waiting. Pietro walked up to Thor, noting that his sis and Joanna weren’t present. “Where are-” he got cut off by the doors opening and two figures walking down the stairs.
