“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  🙂

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!
