She had been putting off the most important thing she needed to do. She set off to find Astrid, one of her closest friends and dragon riders.
Astrid was in the den stroking Aibreans neck when Lagertha found her.
“I don’t know what I’m doing!” Lagertha blurted out.
Astrid chuckled and calmly said “Look who you have standing beside you. I know you feel lost, but you’re not alone.”
“I have put this off for too long. What if I’m too late to say goodbye!? They taught me everything I know. They raised me....” Lagertha trailed off as she was fighting back tears.
“Lagertha, I know you’ve been keeping your emotions buried, but you can’t wait any longer they are leaving today! You must find Dally so she can pass on your message.” Astrid stated and walked to Fomhars stall.
Lagertha wiped her tears and gave Astrid a big hug. She gave fomhar a kiss, jumped on his back, and was headed to say her goodbyes.
She arrived at Dallys castle, but was unable to find her. She found Dallys goodbye letter and slipped hers in along with it.
How am I supposed to say goodbye to you? You took a chance on me and raised me. No matter how stubborn and reluctant I was you kept pushing me towards the right path. The Godfather and the Godmother of Nemesis. The founders of InvidiasWraith. There are no words to describe how thankful I am for you both. Guiding us, teaching us, and taking care of all of us. My heart is breaking seeing you go. In your honor, I will keep pushing forward. I will stay strong for this team. Thank you for everything you have done for us. Now it’s our turn to take care of you. We will always be here flying with you in our hearts. Best wishes in everything you do.
Lagertha sobbed as she headed towards her castle to look at the league board.
“We will war in their honor tonight!” Lagertha shouted.
