“I’m not sure; maybe a week or two; how ever long it takes to sort things out,” I sighed slinging the bag over my shoulder. “I’m off for the portal, see you when you return.” Giving Silima a kiss on the cheek, I walked out the door.
“Daeris, it’s so good to see you. Alexa doesn’t know you are coming; she will be so excited to see you,” Bjorn said pulling me into his version of a bear hug. Viking gods, I’ve found out, have a tendency to forget how strong they are so his hug was more of a squeeze.
“I’ve missed the two of you, too,” I said hugging him in return. “Um…Bjorn can’t breathe here.”
“Oh, sorry,” he replied breaking his hold, taking a step back. I could understand Alexa’s attraction to him. Tall, blond hair, blue eyes, and a body that would make any woman drool, but it was the flush in his cheeks that made him so endearing at the moment.
