Got a feeling I shouldn't have done that.
It would take a lot of time before he would be used to living in such a crowded village. He had spent almost a decade travelling through Scandinavia. Sleeping in the woods, or maybe a small barn, if he got lucky. Scattered throughout the land were smaller villages as well, most of them had some sort of tavern where he could rent a room for one night. Or multiple nights. It really depended on the company he could get. The parties were certainly as wild as the ones they got here in Kattegat, but it was still different from what he experienced in more remote places.

Still, he wouldn’t be himself if he wasn’t optimistic. He could already walk around the village without everyone avoiding him, which was progress. Eventually everything would fall into place. It was just a matter of patience. The young man decided to take a little walk, to the bay, where he found a big rock to sit on and stare into the waves. Svart pulled up his legs and wrapped his arms around them, to find a more comfortable position. It didn’t take much for him to drift of into his thoughts. Therefore, he didn’t even notice he was actually sitting on a sea turtle, and how he was slowly moving towards the water.

open for everyone!

.if i die, i die
It was a day like almost all days for the pretty young girl. She got up early, getting her brother and sister ready for breakfast and made sure her mother was good for the day. Just afther cleaning there little cottage, Naemi took her sister by her little hand so she could learn how to wash the blankets. Naemi hated this part of the day, cleaning and teaching. She loves her little siblings, loves to take care of them, but she isn't into teaching them how to clean or wash. Sometimes, in the afternoon, she would learn Bjarne how to fight. That is what she wants to do, fight. Being as brave and strong as her father once was.

But it was still a normal day like almolst every day, so she went to see Helios. As always was the stallion eager to see her. The sharp sound he made while seeing her, brought a smile on Naemi her face. "Calm down, boy." She said with a grin. When Helios was all ready she pulled her foot in the stirrup and walked quiet out of the village.
Naemi hadn't a destantion or even a route she wanted to ride. Everyday she takes Helios out for a walk, so he woudn't get bored and to be honest, Naemi can't be without him. He was a special horse and with her brother, the only male she had left to love.

Evently she ended up at the bay. The waves were at peace, softly moving the water around. Naemi looked at the calm water while Helios walked quietly along the side of the bay. And there she saw the blacksmith, sitting on.. Naemi stopped Helios and frowned her forehead. What was he doing? Cautiously, scared to make herself known, she spurred Helios so she could take a look. The man was moving, slowly and it took a little bit for Naemi to see that it wasn't a rock he was sitting on, but a sea turtle. Naemi giggeld, stoped Helios and shaked her head. "Sorry, .." She smiled. "Why are you riding that sea turtle?" Naemi stroke Helios' neck while looking at this strange man.

at least I'll go down fighting.
Thank you Sarah!

The waves, certainly a lot calmer than those on the open sea, crashed softly on the beach. A relaxing sound, almost therapeutic. It washed all his bad thoughts away and made him feel as if he was drifting. A gentle movement that would rock him asleep any moment. He watched the waves come closer and closer. The tide was rising, only so it seemed. In reality, he was moving towards the waves, not vica versa. He was too caught up in the moment though. He didn’t even notice someone was getting closer to him. On a horse, for crying out loud. How could he not realise that?

A bit confused he turned his head when the newcomer in question addressed him. "Sorry, .." She said. "Why are you riding that sea turtle?" She continued. This only made him more confused. What in Odin’s name was she talking about? He didn’t lose his cool though. With one of his typical grins he made eye contact. ”Why are you riding a horse?” He returned the question. In the meantime he realised he was, indeed, sitting on a sea turtle. He didn’t even remember how he ended up here, but that was a problem for later.

.if i die, i die
Filthy hands, dark nails dirty of sand and mud stroke through the orange fur. It was peaceful, calm and with more passion words could ever explain. You can see the trust in the big brown eyes, watching his human and enjoying the attention he was getting. Naemi saddled him and took him out of the stables.

The wind was slightly pushing trough her hair and with a smile she spurred Helios to galop along the shorline. His hooves left prints on the sand and Naemi pushed him faster and faster. The wind was cold and hard against her skin but it felt amazing, it felt free. Naemi took Helios back while approaching the bay, the ground contains many gaps and irregularities along its way. The dark-haired girl made sure her horse wouldn't make it hard for himself and drove him quietly along the water.
It was calm, almost peaceful here and the girl always enjoyed the water. The bay had great spots to sit and look across the water, as far as you could see. She wondered what it would be like, sailing and exploring other lands. Naemi had never left Kattegat but was eager and curious enough. Still hoping Björn would go somewhere, somewhere she could go with. And maybe Ragnar was coming back, taking his warriors to some new land. Who knows.

But then something else kept her eye. It was the blacksmith, a man she knew by face and rank. She didn't know his name or where he came from. The girl almost knew every resident of Kattegat, but she didn't know him. He wasn't from here, that was for sure. It made her obnoxious, like every stranger did. He wasn't a total stranger, he was the blacksmith after all. People didn't get there ranks for nothing, she sure didn't.
Naemi always thought that this blacksmith was a strange man. But.. What was he doing on that sea turtle? So she went over there, stopped Helios and couldn't help herself giggling. The man turned his head towards her, looking a little bit confused. Impatiently Helios steps from hoove to hoove and Naemi put her hand against her waist. ”Why are you riding a horse?” He asked her. Naemi frowned her forehead and her grin disappeard. "Because it's normal to ride a horse," She answerd distantly. "Didn't knew turtles where used as working animals, too." She said, her voice almost snapping. She had to admit, it was a fun picture to see. But this man was just strange, weird and she didn't trust him.

at least I'll go down fighting.

If there was one thing he hated, it was making a fool out of himself. What he hated even more, is when someone caught him when he was doing something stupid. He didn’t mind if someone made fun of him, he could put that in perspective. But when it was his own fault people were laughing, if it wasn’t on purpose, then he felt hurt. Now some younger looking girl had seen him ‘riding’ a sea turtle. He knew she would remember this, it was weird and he realised that, and now he feared she would gossip about him. It was always hard to blend in somewhere new. Everybody could see he was new in town. At least he could try to fix this.

But he failed again. As soon as he spoke, he could see her expression change. "Because it's normal to ride a horse," She replied. He chuckled softly. ”I suppose it is yeah”, He admitted. "Didn't knew turtles where used as working animals, too." She then said, in an unfriendly tone. He knew he blew his chances with her, so it was better to stop joking around. ”To be honest I thought I was sitting on a rock”, He sighed, while keeping his charismatic smile on his lips. ”So thanks for saving me”, He continued, after which he stood up from the animal and watched it slowly crawling towards the water.

Maybe, if the young woman knew the man, she would have laughed. It was funny to see him sitting on that turtle. But her suspicion overcame her humor. Her light eyes looked at him but there weren’t any emotion to give them meaning. She just looked, no grin or smile. ”I suppose it is yeah” the Blacksmith admitted and Naemi nodded immediately. Helios shacked his head, trying to get the flies off. He was inpatient, clearly unhappy with this stop. ”To be honest I thought I was sitting on a rock” Naemi tilt her head a little to the right, frowning. ”So thanks for saving me” Continued the Blacksmith, before he stood up from the animal and both watched it crawling away. ”No problem,” Naemi said, her voice calm and clear. She looked at the man again, trying to figure him out. As if his whole life story was written right on his forehead.

Helios pulled his ears back and made a chewing sound while biting on his bit. ”You know what it is, Blacksmith?” Naemi asked him, like he knew what she was talking about. ”The people here don’t like strangers. It makes us obnoxious.” She continued while narrowing her eyes. ”You’re the Blacksmith and I’m sure you’ve earned your rank. But you aren’t from her. We don’t know your name, we don’t know anything about you.” She told him, feeling like it was her responsibility to keep an eye out. ”And that makes you a stranger.” Her voice was getting cold, maybe even a little scornful.

Ofcourse he couldn’t have expected for her to just joke along with a man she didn’t knew. He had hoped for it for sure. He wanted to relax for a while, not be judged for his origin for once. But he had hoped for too much. Even though the younger lady had laughed at first, she soon hid any emotion from him. Her words were meant to sting him like needles. Fortunately, he had gotten used to this. He didn’t lose his sense of humor either. It would take much for him to stop making jokes. He could be serious when it was needed, but he would never get bitter.

That’s why he just looked up to her with a smile around his lips when she, as almost every other villager, started point out he was a stranger. She made clear that nobody would like him just because he wasn’t born here. How judgemental and small minded people could be, it went beyond his imagination. He just kept smiling, even when her tone got a bit disdainful. ”Well then, I know it will take more time for you to not see me as a stranger, but my name is Svart Rauðrsson”, He said, cheerful as always. He had listened to her words but wasn’t quite impressed. ”I’m delighted to meet you”, He continued, and he meant every word of it, which was noticeable by the way he spoke.

Normally would the girl be much more open-minded. Naemi didn’t trust people often and wouldn’t easily let her guard down, but would give a person a fare change. Trying to get to know the other. But there was something about this man, this Blacksmith.. He wasn’t from here, from Kattegat. And that was bothering her, not knowing what his intentions were and what he was doing in Kattegat. Instead of just asking him, she told him why he bothered her.
The man smiled, what triggered Naemi even more. She couldn’t pin him down, what frustrated her. Helios felt her tension and moved uncomfortable from hoof to hoof. With her left hand she stroke his neck to calm him down, while the other hand was still on her waist. She tilt her head a little, listening to the words he spoke. ”Well then, I know it will take more time for you to not see me as a stranger, but my name is Svart Rauðrsson” His voice was still cheerful and Naemi couldn’t place his attitude. ”I’m delighted to meet you” And he meant it. The young woman opened her mouth, but there weren’t any words coming out. She had this whole speech in her head, but there was something obnoxious about this man. At least he said his name, and Naemi respected that. ”Svart, an uncommon name.” She said before she slightly nodded. ”Naemi Eliassdóttir. I’m one of the Thegns.” She replied, her voice a bit calmer than before. ”What were you doing out here?” She asked him then, her eyes looking around for something special or unusual.

Since he had not been inside the village for a lont time, he didn’t know much about it. Every minute he learned new things. Such as sitting on a rock might not always be a good idea. Next time he would most certainly check if the rock was indeed just an ordinary rock. What he had also learned, was that the residents were fierce and proud, and not very kind to strangers. In the future he wanted to know how and why they had taken such a point of view. In most villages, a wanderer was more welcome than here. It was not an uncommon thing for travellers to seek shelter and tell stories in return. He had done exactly that for many years. Kattegat was different, and in a way it made him even more determined to stay.

In a way he had also learned how to deal with matters like this one. He was somehow astonished by her and the way she talked. When he replied, he meant every word he said. In his eyes, she was something special, someone he could learn from, and therefore he was really happy to meet her. His words seemed to take her by surprise, as she just sat on her horse looking at him for a while. ”Svart, an uncommon name.” She then said, while nodding slightly. It meant she had changed her opinion on him, even if it was only a little bit.

”Naemi Eliassdóttir. I’m one of the Thegns.” She then introduced herself. The smith looked at her as if she was making a joke. ”A thegn you say? Really?” He repeated her. ”I had mistaken you for a shield maiden. I bet you could beat me with one hand tied to your back”, He said with an amused smile. He would like to take on the challenge. She sure looked like a fierce warrior. ”What were you doing out here?” She then asked. ”I was making sure my mind was quiet before I would finish a sword I am working on”, He answered honestly. He looked around the beach, listened to the waves again. ”This sure is one of the best spots to do so, I suppose”, He said, while shrugging his shoulders lightly.
