Hello friends! Welcome to Friday Fictioneers hosted by the incomparable Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. I had 100 words to tell a story about the photo above, taken by CEAyer.
A huge troll lived in a cave by a fjord. He loved the peace and quiet of the ocean. One day there was a terrible din across the water. Humans were building a church. He hated humans; worse, he hated churches!
He howled…..growled but the church was getting bigger and taller. Then bells, clanging, clanging, driving him mad.
He awoke one morning to the horrible sound of deafening bells and many humans singing. He could take no more. He picked up an immense boulder, hurled it across the fjord and squashed the church.
Then he went back to bed.
This is a much edited story from Denmark. A friend took me to see the Troll Stone at a nearby Kirke, complete with a plaque that tells the story. The Viking translated it for me so I could condense it down for this week’s challenge.
