Thorvald’s Wyrd 087
Axe and sword clean, he returned them to their places. Gungnir he retrieved and spent more time ensuring no trace of giant’s blood remained. All the while, the emptiness inside him grew.
There had been little enough honour in killing the wolves, but they, at least, had served of their own will. The giants had a master’s hand guiding them and may not have even known their actions or his. More, he’d taken lives to gain a goal of his own, and those could never be returned. Where lay his honour now?
Such was the reason he’d turned from Viking.
