Unknown Land (Viking Story)
Eilidh has been a slave for most of her life. Her master is a powerful man who rules over the land they live in. But he is not the man many people believe him to be. He's ruthless, abusive, a coward.
A harsh winter is predicted and people are nowhere near prepared. Crops were failing, food was scarce and the selfishness of their laird did nothing to help them.
To make it worse, rumors were spreading. Vikings had come. They fought and killed whole towns of people. Innocent people, children.
They all knew, that the day would come where they reached their town and raided them.
But they had other intentions.
A well-known Viking warrior, had finally decided to settle. Settle for land. He had seen unknown lands, explored them, raided them. And now, he wanted them.
He is not known to be a man making peace. A respectful deal was all he needed. He wanted to use their lands, compare them to those he grew up in.
Barging into a promising land, his eyes fell upon her, Eilidh.
He witnessed the bravery of the slave girl, protecting a child from the abusive hand of a man. Despite her own fear she took the punishment upon herself, sparing the young boy.
Her feistiness fascinated him as she held a dagger against one of his best warriors throat.
Until he walked in. Watching her confidence crumble like a wall.
Something about him terrified her. Too bad his mind was already set on having her.
Unknown Land is a story in which two people, from two different worlds collide. A warrior and a slave. Unspoken languages in unknown lands.
He came, he claimed, he took.
