17. H?lfdan drap sk?lab?ana

H?lfdan sn?r n? ? sk?ginn, ok er hann haf?i gengit tv? daga, ?? s? hann einn leynist?g. Hundrinn vildi st?ginn, en H?lfdan gekk fram brautina, ?angat til at hann fann sk?la. ?ar var hnigin hur? ? klofa. H?lfdan hratt henni upp, en ? ?v? hann gekk inn, ?? var Gullk?la ?ar fyrir, d?ttir Kols, ok hj? ? h?ls honum me? bitrligri sk?lm, en ?ar var undir steinas?rvi kerlingar ok brast vi? h?tt, en sk?lmin st?kk ? sundr. H?lfdan greip hana upp ok rak hana ni?r fall mikit ok greip s??an ? annan f?tinn ? henni ok reif hana sundr at endil?ngu ok kastar henni s??an ?t fyrir dyrr. Kolr kom heim ? m?ti dagsetri, ok er hann laut ? dyrrnar, ?? setti H?lfdan saxit ? h?lsinn, ok var ?at hans bani.

En um n?ttina, ?? er H?lfdan var ? svefni, k?mu ?au inn b??i, Kolr ok d?ttir hans, ok s?ttu ?au b??i at H?lfdani. Hundrinn hlj?p upp ok reif Gullk?lu ? n?ranum ok rakti ?r henni ?armana. H?lfdan hlj?p undir sk?lab?ann, ok gl?mdu ?eir lengi, en sv? lauk, at H?lfdan felldi hann ok braut hann ? h?ls. S??an t?k hann eld ok brenndi ?au upp b??i. ?ar var hann tv?r n?tr.

S??an f?r hann ? burtu ok l?tti eigi fyrr en hann kom ? Klifsk?g. ?ar fann hann sk?la st?ran, ok var hur?in sv? ?ung, at hann var? alls m?ttar at kosta, ??r h?n gekk upp. Hann s? ?ar r?m eitt. ?at haf?i tv?r ?lnir yfir hans lengd. B?l s? hann ?ar sv? mikit sem b?ss v?ri. ?? var s?nt h?mat. Hann heyr?i ?t gn? mikinn, ok heyr?i hann, at g?ltrinn grenja?i ok l?t ?fr?nliga. Gekk H?lfdan ?? ?t ?r sk?lanum. Hundrinn hlj?p gn?llrandi at geltinum, en g?ltrinn snerist undan. H?lfdan hj? eptir honum ok ?r honum r?funa. G?ltrinn snerist aptr ok stakk tr?ninu ? millum f?ta H?lfdanar ok vatt honum ? lopt, sv? at honum var? laust saxit, en ?? kom hann standandi ni?r. Sk?lab?i kom ?? at ok sl? til H?lfdanar me? gaddakylfu, en hann snerist undan h?ggvinu ok gat eigi n?t saxinu. Hann greip ? f?tinn ? geltinum ok kippti honum at s?r. H?ggit kom ? millum hlusta geltinum, ok brotna?i haussinn ? honum. H?lfdan reif f?tinn undan geltinum ok rak hann vi? eyra spellvirkjanum, sv? at hann fell ? kn?. H?lfdan hlj?p ?? at honum ok hratt hann um koll. Hann greip ?? til H?lfdanar, ok sviptust ?eir fast, ok ur?u ?msir undir. ?? hlj?p at rakkinn karlsnautr ok beit ? nefit ? sk?lab?a ok reif af honum nasirnar. ?? gat H?lfdan n?t saxinu ok hj? af sk?lab?a h?fu?it ok brenndi hann s??an upp at b?li. Var hann ?? stir?r ok m??r. ?ar dvelst hann um n?ttina.

S??an kom hann at K?lf?rsk?g ok kemr at sk?la Sels. Hur? var hnigin ? mi?jan klofa. Hann hlj?p ? hur?ina ?risvar, ??r en upp gekk. Hann settist ? r?m sk?lab?a. Hann haf?i eikarkefli ? hendi ok t?lga?i hvasst ? b??a endana ok svei? ? eldinum. Hann s? ?t um dyrrnar, hvar sk?lab?i ferr, ok hlj?p hundrinn fram undan. Hundrinn H?lfdanar br? vi? ?egar ok hlj?p upp ? ?vertr?it. H?lfdan gekk ?t ? m?ti b?ndanum, en ?egar hundrinn s? hann, hlj?p hann ? m?t honum me? gapanda ginit ok l?tr all?lmliga. H?lfdan rak h?ndina inn ? kjaptinn ? honum ok sn?r keflinu, sv? at annarr endinn horfir upp ? g?minn, en annarr ni?r, ok kom hann ekki saman kjaptinum. Selr kom at ? ?essu ok haf?i bjarnd?r ? her?unum, en hvalk?lf fyrir s?r.
