A Warrior’s Life
TITLE: A Warrior’s Life
CHAPTER NO./ONE SHOT: Chapter Fifteen
Imagine Viking Loki coming to your village, raiding and pillaging, before deciding there is something about you that intrigues him and deciding to take you back to Asgard with him. There, you are forced to learn a new life and language, and though you hate what has happened to you, you learn that Loki is not as bad as you think.
Maebh had almost forgotten how to ride a horse, she thought back to the dark stallion her father had given her the day she turned ten, a magnificent beast with large hooves that reminded her of thunder as she galloped him. Bred from her father’s stallion and almost as magnificent, trained only to be loyal to her, she missed the beast dearly, no doubt long dead, along with her hound. The animal she was on at that moment was merely a cart donkey in comparison. She followed Loki and Thor on their horses through the woodland to the village to speak with Odin.
As predicted, the king had expected Loki to get details from her by any means necessary to aid their pillaging. It enraged her that Odin would not at least try asking first, she probably would not have been too forthcoming with much, but it was a far more decent method than threats to start with. Thor, Loki and she had discussed for an hour what to do, and what she and Loki had said mere minutes before Thor’s arrival. It was agreed that the best course of action was to go to Odin himself with it.
