“Did you see him, Yamina? Did you see that ugly, bearded ogre? Not only is he hideous, with his stinking clothes and filthy body, he is also as gullible as an ignorant child! 

I only had to smile and tell him the first part of a childhood dream I had to make him believe that I love him! How stupid can a man be? He killed my father and my brother! 

Once the other barbarians are gone, I’ll let him know the second part of my dream. I’ll laugh when I see panic and terror in those cruel, blue eyes!”

Thank you, Christer for such intriguing dialogue. I am curious to know what is the second part of the dream.

Oh no! What a turn around from part one! Dare I hope for a part 3?! I need answers 😂

I suppose it’s a very good thing that I have a dark and cruel imagination then haha!

I love when stories just take turns even for our own minds though. So often we sit to write one thing, only for something else entirely to come out!

Oh no! I was tricked. I thought it was a happy ending for the Moorish girl and the Viking. I think, like the other, I also need part 3, Christer. Well done, Christer.

Oh my, I can only imagine what she has in store for the gullible Viking but I don’t have much sympathy for him, Christer. Two great stories, really well written.

I’m also imagining the sequel. I feel like a voyeur of cruelty already! Gripping!

Aha! A wrinkle in the life of the bearded Viking. Another great picture and another great use of monologue to carry the plot. Fantastic writing, Christer. I see there’s a part three – dare I read it? Sounds like it might be ominous!

Ah, I like it more and more. An intriguing twist, Christer. Remember us when Hollywood asks you to write the movie script  🙂
