After a particularly bad breakup, Tony finds himself in the hospital. Loki is a nurse in the ward he’s sent to, and there’s an immediate attraction that’s hard to ignore, despite Loki’s ethical concerns. They bond over his treatment, and decide to try for more when Tony gets out.
It seems like the ideal ingredient mix for a romcom, but one of them has a secret that threatens to tear both their worlds apart.
**Warning: This is a dark fic. Despite initial appearances, it is not a cutesy romcom, so please do not read if you are not prepared for ugliness and angst. The non-con tag, however, is for mildly dubious consent. There is no rape in the work.*
