After dodging the blow, the huge arrow lodged in the ground behind him, hindering the race of Gridd's horse, who tried to jump the obstacle but failed, falling to the ground.
"Griiiiidd!" Dag called, looking at his sister out of the corner of his eye.
Reidar stopped by her to help her get up.
"Go, Dag! I'm fine! Run!" Gridd shouted back, after getting up from the ground a bit numbed by the fall.
He did not stop riding and together with Ellen and Kjell continued his advance towards the village, when a second arrow passed next to him, plunging into the ground again, creating a deep groove.
"There's an archer over there!" Kjell yelled, who managed to locate the arrow's starting point and pointed his hand at it.
Dag looked in that direction and finally saw one of the legendary Jotunns: he was a mammoth being, almost as tall as Roar when he turned into a goat demon.
This's an experimental test for reading assistance in case.
