Loki walked quickly to the throne room. If what he’d overheard from Laufey was correct, Asgard had less than a day to prepare their army for an attack.
“Father, I need to speak with you” Loki announced as he entered the throne room. Odin was speaking with one of the council members and Frigga when Loki interrupted.
“Loki, I’m glad you are no longer afraid to speak to me, but a certain level of respect is still expected of you” Odin said to him. Loki straightened up a little bit and nodded.
“My apologies, but it’s urgent. It can’t wait” Loki said, Odin still looked peeved at the interruption. “Loki-“ loki didn’t let him finish.
