Fifteen

Left alone  ..  abandoned for the night.  Aage whoring off  the pressures of the day ..  his thugs snoring off the drink.  Gunnarr left astride Aage’s horse  ..  crushing under him a man’s worst nightmare.
Left alone with his agonies.
Abandoned to his thoughts  …

The thought had plagued him.  Taken prisoner by his oldest friend.  Sold into slavery  ..  Aage had condemned him to a tortured life.
What had Gunnarr ever done wrong?  What had he done to deserve Aage’s hatred?
What twist of fate had brought old friends to this?

Gunnarr no longer had any reason to trust this man.  Had to be constantly on the look-out  ..  on his guard for some new trick.
He felt it in his blood  ..  it prickled warning signs in his guts.
Aage still had a trick up his sleeve

A slippery customer, this Gunnarr.  Was supposed to be a problem solved, removed permanently.
But the prick was back.  The alliance was still needed, Njord’s swordsmen had to be kept on-board.  How best to reassure him?

Make sure the problem has gone forever?

They were pissed  ..  the ale was strong, they’d been knocking it back some time.  A lot of their anger at this murderer had calmed. 
But the erling was not done.  Still he pushed his men on.  This fool had come back  ..  out for revenge  .. 
Aage would settle this rival  ..  once and for all  .. 
Finish him off  ..  him and his heirs  ..  completely this time  …

Not all work and no play  ..  the galley slave’s life.  Variety is the spice of life.  Always something going on, always something to occupy the mind and body.
Even the chance of a break on dry land  ….
