A Tale of Griffins and Half-Bloods

Being a monster is hard enough. Being a monster who needs demigods to help you is even worse. Being a monster who needs help from demigods against other monsters is living hell.
And you thought being human was hard.


17. Do I look like a pegasus to you? - Cinder

After that little... episode... with Mr. Jackson there, I was sent to see the man-horse. I wasn't a half-blood, I knew more Greek than most of them put together, and I probably knew more about fighting then all of them put together. Yeah. There wasn't much I could do in this little place.

I found him on the porch, back in his wheelchair.

"You called?"

He looked up, from what was rather obviously deep thought. "Hm? Ah, yes. What do you think of pegasi?"

I looked at him rather suspiciously. "They taste nice?"

The look on his face was priceless. "You eat them?"

"Doesn't everyone?" I think I have a lot to learn from humans.

"No. In fact, barely anyone eats pegasi."

I was genuinely surprised. "Why not? They taste good."

"Lets just move on from that subject. What do you think of pegasi as something not to do with food?"

Now this was a hard question. "They're hard to catch. Fast, skittish and rather annoying. Rather useless, save for food... Demigods on pegasi are a pain in the butt. Literally."

"Pegasi riding. What do you think of that?"

My eyes widened slightly at this question. "I think humans are stupid for trying to tame wild pegasi. I mean seriously. Do they ever think about how they feet?"

Chiron looked amused. Oh dear. "Well you'll know first hand, won't you?"


"You're going to be ridden, Cinder."
