You sat in the darkness, alone, unable to shake off the nightmares that still continued to haunt you. You looked out into the beautiful Asgardian night, but your mind was elsewhere. You could still see the fires rapidly burning down everything in its path. You could hear the screaming of hundreds of people, fleeing for their lives. You feel the ground trembling as more and more ships landed, bringing more and more Dark Elves into the Asgardian Kingdom. But worst of all, you could still see Frigga's body, lying on the cold marble floor, dead.
It all happened way too fast. You saw Kurse, dangling Frigga in the air as Malekith demanded to know where the aether was. You knew you needed to step in and save her, but it was too late. Before, you could even reach for your sword, Kurse plunged the knife into Frigga's body, before dropping her lifeless body to the ground. You were too late.
Everything that happened after that was a blur. You could hear Thor screaming in the background, but couldn't make out what he was saying. There was a loud crash somewhere, but you couldn't focus on it for long. You ran up to Frigga's body, begging the gods for there to still be life in the Almother. "Frigga! Frigga, please! Don't leave us! We need you!" You cried out as tears blinded your vision. "Don't go! Please!" But her soul was no more.
After the funeral, you locked yourself up in your chambers for several days, not wanting to see anyone or anything. You had wanted to believe that this was just all a bad dream and that you would soon wake up to find that none of this had happened and that everything would go back to normal, but you were only fooling yourself. Frigga was gone and there was nothing you could do about it. No magic in the Nine Realms would bring her back. "I'm sorry..." You whispered as hot tears slid down your cheek. "I'm sorry, Almother...I should have tried harder. I shouldn't have just stood there. I should have saved you. It should have been me." You sobbed. "It should have been me...not you..." "Darling?" A voice called out softly. "Are you alright?" You tried to respond, but you just couldn't.
You could hear the door open and gently close behind you.
