The Legend of Slottsfjellet: Chapter Four (Part 12)

The work went surprisingly quickly. A lot of the “designing” entailed simply copying views and notes from the sketches and arranging them into a usable format. Joe was amazed at how well thought-out the plans were. This was more than a building that imitated an old castle style; it was a very precise replica of an authentic castle tower.

Joe was soon caught up in his drafting, and worked all morning without a break. At noon, there was a knock at the door.

“Come in,” called Joe without looking up. He heard keys fumbling at the lock and went toward the door. It opened as he got there, and he was surprised to find a pleasant-looking middle-aged woman entering with a large bowl of soup and some bread. The woman smiled and said something rapidly in Norwegian. Joe took the food and thanked her as she left. Through the window, Joe saw the woman walk away from the trailer and he realized that he had not heard her lock the door. He excitedly tried the door handle.

It turned easily.

  1. Hey, look, I’m a critic! This chapter is too short. Starting off with “Coming Soon!” is catchy. It’s like a good cliffhanger, but now I feel like I’ve been hanging for a long time and my eyes are getting tired of reading those same two words over and over again without any relief.

  2. Rossio says:

    Don’t you think that using the words surprisingly quickly sounds a little strange? Don’t you think it might sound better if you break them up?

    “Surprisingly, the work went quickly.”
