     "What did they feed you there? What did you eat?“ Mike asked. He didn’t want her getting an upset stomach from unfamiliar foods, plus what if she was allergic to something?
     El furrowed her brow in frustration, unable to find the words to explain. What was it called? Some sort of drink.
     In the lab, she was given a drink with every meal. Along with the tasteless and colorless foods she was given, the bad men served her a thick concoction that looked like melted ice cream, but tasted nothing like it.
      Despite it’s cold temperature, the liquid burned her throat as she choked it down. It tasted like dirt and copper, like the blood that dripped from her nose. The sludge slid down her throat slowly like a slug that had come from The Upside Down. It’s aftertaste clung to her throat like how gum stuck to the bottom of her shoe last week.
     Growing up in the lab meant knowing exactly what was expected of her; always given orders but never told why. The drink was one of the only things she was ever given an explanation for, but it was only to push their agenda.            They said it was to keep her strong and healthy after playtime. That was supposed to help keep her mind sharp. If anything, though, it made her feel even worse. Bile rose in her throat after every sip and she remembered the punishment if she didn’t finish.

                                        Vikings season 4 episode 10


                           Since the day of my birth, my death began its walk.                                                      It is walking toward me, without hurrying. 


The strong spring wind still had the bitter undertone of winter in it. Harsh waves of cold wind hit Njæla’s face as she sat on top of one of the mossed stones that was still damp of the morning dawn. Her legs were cold and her muscles were clenched tight to her body, if someone attacked her now she would have no chance. Her fingers were strapped tight around her bow and she breathed out slowly, watching the damp clouds of her warmth fade away.

Njæla did not mind the waiting, she had built a patience in the past years that even the Sun envied. She only regretted the cold, nothing burns like the cold.
