Chapter 1: Counting Days (1)
2 Weeks after Grimmel
I studied my notes of paperwork as I looked at the new houses in New Berk being built. I put my hands on my hips and slowly admired the sight. 2 weeks with no dragons. 2 weeks without the real Berk. 2 weeks with only Astrid. 1 week of being married.
I smiled and shook my hands. "That's good Fishlegs," I waved to my longtime friend as he climbed down the ladder. "Alrighty Chief! I'm onto the stairs now," Fishlegs beamed as he scurried off towards the cliff. I rose my brow as he walked away, before I felt heavy arms land on my shoulders.
"Hey Hiccy! My fine student, how is the wife?" Tuffnut asks as I smacked his hands off of my shoulders, rolling my eyes and massively groaning. "Stop calling me Hiccy! And she's fine," I growled and Tuffnut chuckled, before he walked away. I sighed and shook my head, before returning to the remodeling of Berk.
"Need any help there Chief?" A familiar voice grasps and I glowed as I turned around, to see my beautiful wife. "As a matter of fact, I do," I smiled and walked to Astrid, pecking her soft lips with mine. She held the papers and rubbed her back hair. "Huh. I got this, go take a break," Astrid says and I gave her a weird look. "You sure? Cause I-" "Go Hiccup," Astrid huffs and I kissed her cheek a I walked away.
Hiccup and Astrid's Hut
An Hour Later
"Snotlout, Astrid, we need to figure this out, like now," I groaned and rubbed my forehead as they both continued to bicker. We were trying to figure out where to place the bigger bridge. Astrid wanted it closer to the food and water sources to make us easier for us vikings to get to. Snotlout wanted it near the upcoming Dragon Troopers Academy for training and for any new enemies.
"Guys! Come on!" I snapped and they both shut up to look at me. "We don't have time for this, we need to get New Berk built and ready to live for," I explained and they both sighed.
They nodded, before the door bursted open. "Chief! General! Come quick!" A Viking man yelled, as he ran away in panic.
"I'll go see what's up. Prolly just a fight. I'll be back soon," Astrid chuckled and grabbed her axe as she left my hut. I sighed and sat down on a chair, with Snotlout.
I heard large screams coming from the Great Hall. Definitely a fight.
"Okay, any other ideas?" I ask and Snotlout shrugged. "Not really, no," He said and I blew air out of my mouth.
"Grrrreeeeaaatt," I said lonely and riddled with my pen. He charters outside suddenly stopped and it was all quiet.
"Well that went fast," Snotlout said, unamused. "Come on, let's go see what happened. We aren't getting very far with these plans anyway," Snotlout shrugged and I rolled my eyes in agreement as I stood up, and walked outside.
