“Listen Harald, my friend! You boys go back to Sweden with the loot without me. I’ve met an extremely beautiful Moorish woman. Although we came to rob and kill, she insists that I stay and marry her! 

She told me that when she was a little girl, she had a dream in which she married a blond man with blue eyes. When she shared the dream with her family, they laughed at her, but she knew that it was a prophecy. 

She loves me! She even thinks that I’m good-looking! No more killing and robbing for me! I’m staying here!”

Oh dear, I should have read part 1 before part 2. Even if there is trickery involved, I hope the Viking turns from killing and robbery.

Hello, Christer. I love the idea of how a robber and a killer choose to change his life because of love. I can’t wait to read part 2. So exciting.

What fun, Christer! A multi-part saga. You and I are the latest members to engage in this wonderful art form of 100-word chapters in an ongoing story. I like your overall title “Swedish Saga”. I also love the picture for this first story, and how engaging your murderous Swede can be. Right now I’m rooting for him. Maybe love will truly change his life!

I’m sure Hollywood would snap this idea up for the next blockbuster, Christer! A muscly Viking turned from his life of looting by a beautiful woman. I can see the promos already. I can see there is a continuation but I decided to comment before reading them. Now, I want to see what happens next  🙂

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
