A unicorn with half a horn and glowing eyes

Rono’s Debt

I wrote this story in 2018, reworked it in 2019 for a contest I never submitted to, and now decided to put the story on here rather than keep it hidden away in a drawer.

In this 7-minute-read, you meet Rono, who is an outlaw and a highwayman, robbing people for a living. But one day he encounters a foe he will not fight: a unicorn that looks as though it’s come out of the underworld.

In this short story, an undead man travels a lifeless country with only an undead horse for company. When they find a new valley, they decide to explore. But a ghost ship on the fjord stirs age-old memories, and the draugr begins to regret he ever steered down that steep mountain path.
