    Scary stuff, Kate. And you write it so well. Must've been terrifying to be caught up in a Viking raid.

    Thank you for your comment Hel. Your piece has a quiet watery flow to it and I have to agree with other comments it has a fable like feel to it. Well done. There are some great contributions to this months comp.

    Thank you, Hel. I haven't read any others yet. Never do before having a go. A treat for later. Probably a giant squid btw, hard to say that far down. Not so much revenge as predation, perhaps.
