"For good?" He echoed, his smile widening at the thought. "That’s great! And the next time you go, you’re gonna have to take me with you. I can’t let you have all of the inter-dimensional travel to yourself." Taking in the comfort of just being close to her again, holding her tight and looking her over to get a good look at the dress. "Y-Yeah, I do. I’m…not really used to seeing you in dresses. B-But you look beautiful, a-as always."
"I think I can do that." She agreed with a hum. She’d love for him to come with her the next time. "Hmm… If you’re lucky, maybe you’ll see me in another dress sometime." She teased, nuzzling her head into the crook of his neck. She had missed this, being able to be close to Tim. It would be a while before she did any sort of traveling again. She just wanted to stay here, in his arms. "Gracias, Mijo." She murmured, pressing a kiss to his cheek.
"Wh-What? No, you-you look beautiful…" Tim’s throat began to tighten when he met her eyes, taking a few seconds just to soak in the thought that she was finally back. “Meri? What—”
Muffling a hum the second he felt her lips around his, his shoulder sinking as he remembered the feel of her lips. Wrapping his arms around her and holding her tight, “I missed you too.” He whispered, “How-How long are you back for?”
"For good… I was able to talk them into finding someone else to rule… I might have to go back very every now and then for special occasions… But that’s it." She murmured, a wide smile pulling at her lips. Swaying her hips she kept herself pressed closely to Tim body. "So… You like the dress, huh?" She asked, raising an eyebrow as she looked at him.
It was hard to believe that nine whole months had passed since she left. Inter-dimensional travel sucked. No one phone calls. No way to communicate with her. Tim didn’t know when she would be back—if she would be back.
He was just finishing up a few cases, one of the best ways he kept his mind occupied with America away. “What the–” There was a split second where his heart leapt into his throat. Hoping it was her as he made his way to the balcony, seeing her in a beautiful dress—which was different for her. “Meri?” Darting up to the door, Tim threw the doors open and stood frozen in front of her, “Is-Is it really?”
America watched the shocked expression on Tim’s face, her smile still playing at her lips. “‘Course it’s me. What, the dress throwing you off that much?” She teased. As she looked Tim over, however, her smile faltered as she bit her bottom lip. Running a hand through her mess of curls, she felt tears threatening to brim as she hunched her shoulders, trying not cry. “Tim…” She murmured, looking up at him. “I-…” Her white dressed billowed as she stepped forward, closing the distance between them, wrapping her arms around his neck and pressing a kiss to his lips. After a moment, she parted the kiss but didn’t let him go. “I missed you, so much…” This time, a few tears streamed down her cheeks.

America’s body seemed to relax as she hooked her thumbs in the belt loops of her shorts. “Alright then… How about dinner? I’m starving and burgers sound good.”
The young god thought about taking her to a restaurant and he even considered saying it out loud for a few seconds but he ended up changing his mind, the possibility of America turning him down on a date would make him devastated. It wasn’t a date, was it? No… just burgers… she would never… “I love burgers, you know that, do you want to eat at a specific place or something? I’m willing to pay the bill this time, promise I won’t disappear.”
"You’re gonna pay?" America asked, surprised. "Well then, we’re goin’ to my favorite diner." She gave a grin, "You better not, chico. Don’t make me have to hunt you down." Turning to the door, she made her way out of her apartment.

America’s dark eyes met Loki’s emerald eyes. It was the weirdest feeling. It’s like she instantly knew, as her heart skipped a beat and began to glow. Glancing down, her eyes widened as she was what has happening. Looking back at Loki, here eyes still wide, she turned quickly on her heel before before running in the opposite direction. She grabbed at her chest as she ran, trying to hide the bright red glow.
