I don't own anything, so these guys don't belong to me, I just really fancy them. Also, I'm not a native speaker of English, but I'm trying to do my best, so grammar errors and spelling mistakes may occur, therefore beta readers are more than welcomed.

It was a fine day. One of the finest ones of this year. Finally, it was summer, the sun was shining and the temperature went above 25 degrees. Most Vikings were sick in this weather and tried to hide in the shades or to sleep through the summer days in their homes.
There was one Viking however who was quite ...view middle of the document...

It couldn't have been a cloud, the sky was crystal clear a minute ago. The shadow cleared her throat. „Having the time of your life?”, asked the slim Viking girl who seemed a bit angry upon finding her favourite place occupied.
„Hey... Astrid.”, answered the guy, blinking. „I was just swimming.”
„Yes, I can...”
„I thought you were...”
„Oh, because of this?”, said Hiccup pointing at his missing foot. „Nah, I'm still a pretty good swimmer.”
„You think so? How about we race to the island?”
„You won't have a chance.”, said the boy laughing, while standing up. Meanwhile Astrid got rid of her clothes. Now she was only wearing the same type of shorts as Hiccup plus some bindigs to cover her breasts. Hiccup took a deep breath. The bindings pretty much hid all the intersting parts of the girl, still this was the most undressed state he has seen her in the past couple of years.
„Okay”, she said looking at the boy with a serious face, „whoever gets out of the water first, wins.”

He sat down on the sand, waiting for Astrid to get out of the water. He was wearing a big smile on his face. A couple of second later, the girl reached the shore and seemed pretty angry.
„It's not fair, your much taller than me.”, complained, while sitting next to him.
„I thought you considered yourself the stronger one.”, answered the boy, and it was hard for him not to laugh at her. It was quite obvious that the girl didn't fancy the idea of him being the better one at anything.
„I'm the stronger, that's not a question.”, she said, looking at him with revengeful eyes.
„Is that so, milady?”
The girl answered the question with a determined nod.
„Okay, we can make a bet. The one who can pin down the other to the ground for 5 seconds, wins.”
„Deal.”, said the girl, „If I win, you have to...
