Thorvald’s Wyrd 041
Nine worlds, nine paths, nine days and nights. What strange synchronicity in the universe so often brought the number nine to the forefront of important events? Nine jewels, nine stars.
Why nine? Thorvald remembered being taught as a child that nine was a number the gods found pleasing. With all the things he’d seen since the Mother Night began, he supposed it must be more than just the gods.
The number burned in his mind, searing itself into his world. But the wolves wasted little time and left him with none, two leaping for him without warning.
