T-Bird and the Dragon
Joel had decided that since Thor had been so gracious by escorting him to Asgard for the summer solstice, he'd return the favor on a smaller scale by taking him for a drive up the California coast. Screeching up to the curb in a classic that served to remind the God of the nickname the dragon had given him, he honked to garner his attention from the little crowd of admirers that had gathered around the tall, well built and quite handsome male. Patting the passenger's seat, he called out to him with a charming grin on his lips, "Climb on in, big guy! Let's go for a ride!"
Once his company had joined him he pulled away with the spin of rubber to road and set out for the very scenic and winding Hwy 101. With the top down, wind blowing in their hair and music blaring, he steered the car along with expert ease. It hugged the roadway perfectly and responded to even the lightest touch. He glanced over now and then to see Thor smiling and rocking along to the sounds. With his own heart flying, he reached over with his free hand and tugged the other's digits into his own, fingers entwined, singing the song that was playing with a huge grin.
Finally after almost half a day of driving, he pulled off the road onto a rarely used scenic overlook near the town of Crescent City. Shifting the car into park, facing out at the glory of the ocean and forested peaks, he sat back and turned everything off so they could just sit and admire the view and the sounds of the ocean crashing against the rocks below. A little while later he turned to him and with all honesty spoke, "I'm beginning to treasure your company." Simply stated, but deeply felt.
