Chapter 4: A True Brother

 

Jan stood up and started roaming the city. Jan stood up and started roaming the city.
« If I want to survive I need to adapt my lifestyle to this place.

And even more important, I need to leave this city so I could gather more info and to find someone who could help me out.

I can’t depend on getting back to life every time, I don’t know why that is happening and it might stop happening at any time, then I’ll be doomed. If that means I have to train myself, then training is what I will be doing!

And my training shouldn’t be just physical, I need to work on my mental strength as well. I might be fit, I do know some martial arts, but all that did me nothing good against those beasts.

Just as they attacked I froze in place every time, even though I could see their movements. Well getting stronger might get me more prepared mentally but I can’t do this on my own: I definitely need some guidance! »

He stopped at a bar and went in, just to find the knight that he met before: “Speak of the devil!” he said to himself, as he greeted him.

“Oh, it’s you!” Said the knight, “Did you manage to leave the city?” Jan took a seat by his side, asked the bartender for a drink saying to himself: “You don’t really get to know someone until you get ridiculously drunk with them”

⦁ It was just like you said with those beasts, they were all over the roads chasing people.

Rollo Hit his glass on the table: “Wow he’s wasted!” Jan murmured.

⦁ “What a shame! So many years that I spent with my brothers fighting side by side against those beasts! And they never seem to end!”

He barely managed to stand up and shouted:

⦁ “I, the fourth commander of Valkery’s knights, how taken the vow to spend my life defending this city, or to give my life for it, for if I don’t, I shall never face Odin with my head held up high! WHO’S WITH ME?”

“ Hahahaha Odin? That’s it!” said Jan to himself. And to the shock of Rollo, he stood up and started singing:

Those who cannot face death shall never go inside

I’ll never go through Valhalla’s gates if I ever weep or cry

For a true son of Odin shall face death with a smile

To join his brothers in Odin’s dwelling, he ’s ready to say goodbye

Rollo put his arm over Jan’s shoulder and they carried on:

To this world, and its ways, to its fights and his mates

Gladly, I shall be drinking ale, with the AEsir up high

The days of my life are ending, I laugh as I die!
