So she came and sat by Thora, taking her hand and kissing her, and we told her what osmund's thoughts were.
Did you ever, in the course of your wanderings, hear of a certain osmund Maiden?
"We are not oath breakers, King Alfred," osmund said, looking him in the face.

So Odda helped me through with osmund's thanks, and I was glad.
Will you slay osmund the jarl, who has kept his troth, even to coming back to what he knew would be his death?
This outlander rode with osmund the Dane to bring them on us even now.
Then osmund rose up and went his way silently, as was his wont; and Dudda grinned at us.
osmund would go with them, and so no fear for them was on our minds.
