She thanked Moðir and left the cave to continue on her way. She was in an open meadow and had no place to hide when she saw a spear land not far from her. She disappeared into the woods, where she was most comfortable during the day. They again welcomed her warmly, as she knew they would. She found Thord, the son who had lost his ear and eye to an outlaw’s sword, pacing in anger and frustration. He had lost his prize ram and had just heard that another nearby farmer had lost a ram too. He felt powerless to go after the outlaws.

Her vision suggested that their deaths would come later in the autumn. Spirits were high with such preparedness for the coming winter. One day not long after the harvest, when the sky was blue and the sea calm, Olaf decided to make the journey across the narrow straits to Denmark, to visit King Healfdene. When they arrived at the harbor the sky was still blue and the sea calm.

The prince had promised to come home the following spring, so he likely had already embarked on his way home by now, Healfdene optimistically added. Then Sigrid told the king about the visit by Olaf and the sad vision of Olaf’s priestess. Though he commiserated with his wife in her grief, he rationalized by telling himself that Vanadisdottir was a priestess of Freyja and he did not believe in the supremacy of that goddess, so the priestess could very well be wrong and Heorogar might very well return despite her prediction.
