*****"Do you know how I started out on this journey?" Skade asked, leaning against the table, her battle-axe held in one hand. "Actually, when I started, I wasn't very happy about the idea at all. I mean, why would a Shield Maiden like me want to leave the Northlands and travel around behind some fourteen year-old priestess of the weaker gods? The All-Father would turn in his grave now if he could see what I have been reduced to."

I was defeated, and I was stripped naked and chained to a millstone, made to push it forever like a beast of burden, as a punishment for daring to oppose the Horned King. If she had not released me from my chains, I might be pushing it still."
