I tried to hold my eyes open as long as I could, tried to keep scratching behind Loki's ears and speaking in my most comforting voice. I knew, I just knew that Loki could understand.My lips kept moving even after I didn't have the strength to make any noise. I just repeated myself over and over, pleading for one thing, the thing I wanted more than anything in the nineteen years I'd been alive: "Stay with me, Loki," I told him. "Stay with me, Marine."
