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.


11. I don't like you. - Cinder

Well that didn't go half as well as I planned. In fact, it went nothing like I planned. Note to self- don't ask for help from Demigods again. It's just not worth the trouble. Currently, I sat in the middle of a circle, with at least eighteen swords, five spears and a few arrows pointing at my face. Lovely.

"So what anti-social scheme have you got in store for me today?" The demigods didn't get my sarcasm. Wonderful. The centaur had cantered back into the arena, and was talking with some of the halfbloods. After a few moments, he came to the circle and it broke before him. He offered his hand to help me up. I took it. I really did not want to become enemies with this lot. At least, not at the moment.

"Griffin." Chiron nodded to me.


"Don't call me that."


He shifted on his hooves slightly, before he turned to the rest of the silly little children. "Today, I suppose, marks the beginning of yet another new relationship. This griffin-" He looked down at me expectantly. I looked back, rather blankly, before I actually realized what he wanted.

"Oh, uhh, Cinder."

"-Cinder, is now recognized as an ally to the camp." A grumble moved through the crowd. "However." I let out a quiet moan. "If he attacks any demigod currently known throughout the camp, you all have permission to send him to Tartarus." This was answered with a cheer. Lovely people, demigods. He turned back to me, voice low and warning. "Hurt any one of this children, griffin, and you are going straight to the underworld."

I raised my hands defensively. "I kinda get that. You don't need to keep reminding me about that place. I've seen enough of it already."

"Good. Alyx?" The girl stepped through the thinning crowd, a scowl on her face.

"He picked me up."


"He threatened to drop me."


"No I didn't! I swear! I was adjusting my grip! What would you prefer, slightly spooked demigod, or demigod pancakes served with maple syrup?" I took a step back. I don't like these people. I seriously don't like these people. But it was somewhere to stay until I could go find my pride-flock.

"Alyx, you are to show the griffin around camp. Tell him what he needs to know, and make sure he knows where the forest is."

She looked slightly puzzled. "Where's he gonna sleep?"

"Come on, girl, use your head." With that, the centaur trotted off.

"Why does everyone tease me..." Alyx muttered quietly, more to herself than me. Either way, I patted her on the back.

"Don't worry kid. Life isn't fair. And neither are siblings."
