Story Number 51 : ' Midgard's Hero ' © 2016
It was a time when Thor had not as of yet wrested the lands of his mother Jord from the iron grasp of the Giants who invaded her world at will. Men, even the bravest of warriors, shrank before the onslaught of these terrible Jotuns..... that is until one human, a man of great conviction and honor, said " NO MORE ! " His name, lost to history, was Sigvaldi, and he was not about to let his village be destroyed without a fight ! This great warrior will do whatever it takes, even if it means losing his one love in life, the shield maiden Geirny.
Will a feeble Midgardian be able to withstand the onslaught of a horde of Jotuns ? Or will he, along with all the other villagers, be destroyed as Odin watches from Hlidskjalf ? And what of Geirny will she be able to forgive Sigvaldi for his actions ? Find out next month here on this website !!!!!!!!!!!
** Yes I am aware that this is a picture of the Varangian Rorik and his brothers from a much later age. Unfortunately, I do not make money off of my writing and cannot afford to pay anyone to illustrate my stories. I therefore have to depend on the few paintings and drawings that are in the Public Domain to convey a sense of what I am writing. - ( Ravensheart )
