Loki had been called away again, this time to ride with Thor to the gates of Nelfhiem, it was not something easy for him to do. To see the daughter he was not permitted to see outside of offical business for Odin. The ride took some nine days on horseback even with the Bifrost. It was nearly a month before the two returned this time. Odin's ravens coming back and forth with messages as their mission had been completed they had stopped off on Midgard on the way home which was what took so long, misadventures the two always seemed to find themselves in.

it was during this absence that Sigyn was paid a visit by one whom had not been permitted to the wedding, Loki's own mother Laufey, the one whose name he carries. She had not come alone but with his elder brother Helblindi. Laufey was a thin woman who was built much like Loki in regards of being thin but beautiful, she didn't have much mass too her hard to believe she had birthed three sons to her husband. She held herself responsible for Loki as his father had wished to kill him at birth for his small sickly nature, but she had not allowed it she had nursed and raised him until he was strong enough to be on his own.

It was the servents that had let the two in before Sigyn knew, they waited for her in the sitting room, Helblindi was big like Thor but his eyes forever shut, sewn shut no less to hide the milky blind orbs behind them, his hair was the same fiery red as his younger brothers only shorter, just long enough to hide half of his face. Laufey had moved to greet her daughter in law with kisses to both cheeks and a hug. She had never had a daughter and Býleistr's bride was one whom was so scared of her husband Fárbauti, she would not even step into their home. so she had been excited over the idea of a daughter in law whom she had so long been denied seeing.

"I have come to meet the woman married to my precious Loki, please come meet his older brother Helblindi"

The two Jotun's had stayed till late afternoon, Laufey and Helblindi telling Sigyn what a loving but wiful boy Loki had been before he feel into his friendship with the Allfather and left home. All these stories that Laufey had heard of her sons acts of evil tore at her heart. Laufey had told her that she was deeply saddened by the way her son was treating her, arranged or not she had thought she had raised him better. Before she left after his brother had actually hugged Sigyn and thanked her for such kindness which was the most he had said without being cut off by his mother, had gone outside to fetch the horses. he may be blind but he was still useful.

Laufey had slipped Sigyn aside handing her a few things "These my lovely are Cubeb berries, crush these into whatever you make for Loki when he returns for the next week, it will put him in your command. Not mind control but keep him from going astray for awhile and if the sly creature figures that out these will help you more. Magnolia Leaves, place them under his side of your bed and it will bring marital happiness, should you have a mojo bag place it inside as well and it will make him unable to preform for other women." She smiled some before touching her cheek. "Never hesitate to visit us, please do bring my baby and visit some time." She repeated before setting out with her son. They had come all this way to stop Loki from bringing more shame to his name or to the daughter of Odin.

It was an hour or so after they left that one of the servants called out "MISTRESS! THE MASTER IS HOME!" Just off the hillside in the opposite direction that Laufey and Helblindi had left was a flash of bright red and green, Loki's cape and hair were always easiest to spot, his horse going at fast speeds as it was pouring as the sun had only set awhile ago. The servents were heading down quickly a change of clothes for Loki and ready to take the horse to the stables.

He did not take the change of clothes simply made his way in once the horse was taken away his boots dragging mud inside before he removed them and moved over to the fire dripping water behind him, the red locks were drenched and he felt cold despite himself. He dropped a bag at his side he had actually brought things back with him this time besides tomes and gold.

"Is Sigyn in or is she with her father?" He questioned the servent nearest him.

When Loki had been called away for whatever task her father had asked of him, she hadn’t even properly said goodbye to him and she had spent most of her time visiting people without feeling that bothered of all the talking that seemed to follow her husband around, she had noticed that most of the gossip aimed at her happened when he was around and she could move about calmly when he wasn’t around, thus she enjoyed it spending most of her time with Frigg and Höðr.

Though Sigyn hadn’t expected the visits of her in laws and she had been a bit shell shocked by it, just like with the way Laufey had treated her and at the very least she could expect to get along with her mother in law, she had even enjoyed the tales about her husband when he was younger and she had worked her best to cause the best of impressions to them, which had apparently worked just fine.

She had even gotten a hug from his brother; she supposed that was a victory on her part. Also this was apparently a day full of surprises considering the parting gifts her mother in law gave her, being as well versed as she was she knew quite well the uses of the magnolia leaves and the cubeb berries, her own mother had used those berries and even gave them to some of her worshippers in the past, still she smiled at her. “Thank you and for your invitation as well, we will make sure to do so.”

Figuring that she had nothing to lose and wanting some sort of payback as well, she tasked her hand-maiden to get the mojo from her room and then meet her in the room she shared with her husband from times to times, carefully she moved tearing the bedding a bit, slidding the leaves and mojo, before quickly sewn it shut while her maid giggled behind her. Sigyn quickly fixed the bed and then handed the berries to her maid, having decided not to use those since she didn’t felt the need to do so, before she moved to the room that Loki used on the times they didn’t wanted to be together, having the forethought of dividing the leaves and mojo, before moving to repeat the process on that bed as well.

The young goddess had just finished, fixing the bed so nothing will look amiss when the call of his arrival was heard. Quickly she left his room and moved to hers, to make herself look a bit more presentable. Being quite unaware that her beloved maid, one that was quite fond of her mistress and decided to be the one to use berries instead, the handmaiden quickly crushed them and mixed into a goblet with warm mead, before moving quickly to offer it to the master of the house, figuring he might enjoy the warm drink considering how deplorable he looked. “Here my lord, have something to drink.” With a rather respectful bow, she gave him the goblet. “The mistress is home, I will go fetch her.”

The maid left quickly, meeting her mistress half the way, Sigyn just smiled at her and dismissed her to make sure the evening meal was being prepared now that her husband was here. When she stepped in the room her husband was she looked rather presentable, with her hair perfectly brushed and wearing a fitting white dress, though she had to frown at how pathetic he looked at the moment.

“Welcome home, Loki.”

☣ Loki Laufeyson ☣

Loki god of Fire

The son of giants
Walks across the sky
To the gods a friend
Fathered beast and men

As a falcon he did fly
Far across the sky
To take back the hammer
Of Thor his friend

He lives between the worlds
The world of gods and men

He is the god of fire
Burning higher
God of fire
Into the sky

The father of a wolf
And the serpent of the sea
The ruler of hell
A giant is he

To Odin he's a brother
A brother who is sly
One who changes shape
Who walks across the sky

He lives between the worlds
The world of gods and men

He is the god of fire
Burning higher
God of fire
Into the sky

[Chorus]
God of fire
Burning higher
God of fire
Into the sky

Brother to Thor
And Odin god of war
Loki god of fire
Reigns for evermore

The father of a wolf
And the serpent of the sea
The ruler of hell
A giant is he

To Odin he's a brother
A brother who is sly
One who changes shape
Who walks across the sk
