# Winter's Cold Heart
When he visits the tribe of the Elk, Leif Jurgensen falls for the chief’s beautiful daughter. The man that slays the local monster will be offered her hand in marriage. Leif volunteers for the task. But when Anneke, the chief's daughter, makes a special request Leif struggles to make the difficult choice between what his heart desires and his honor demands.
An elk made of iron and wood decorated the thirty-foot-tall doors in the side of the mountain. It reared on its hind legs, its antlers a pattern of intricate circles that spiraled and twisted over one another. Giant icicles hung above the doors in rows of jagged lines that looked like the gaping maw of some great beast. They caught the fading light from the sun as it dipped below the mountain crest and appeared like bloodstained teeth.
The wind blew harder, biting through Leif Jurgensen’s furs and leather as he gazed up at the massive doors. Snow that had collected along the rock face drifted down.
Leif scratched his beard and pondered how to enter. There were no guards upon the walls and only the giants that once lived here were tall enough to reach the door knocker that towered twenty feet above him.
