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.


6. Not the Best Idea. - Alyx

Chiron raised an eyebrow, looking at the bird. Was this thing stupid?

As Cinder got further in his little speech, I came to a conclusion. Yes. He very much was. I'm afraid I have to admit that I agree with Annabeth's opinion on most boys. They really are dumb.

Either way, my centaur mentor (I'm so good at rhymes) listened carefully, before nodding slightly. "Prove it to us. First, by telling us who these 'them' are."

"How do I know you're not just gonna shove me back into that cell?"

Alright, maybe not completely stupid.

"I'm guessing my word wouldn't be enough?"

"Uhhh... No." Cinder had crossed his arms. This was an interesting change from the childishly silly man she'd encountered before.

"Well then, I'm afraid that's all you're getting. Besides. I don't think your in much of a position to bargain at the moment."

Cinder thought for a moment, I suppose he was weighing up his odds, before giving his reluctant answer, which he accompanied with a scowl. "Fine."

After waiting for a few moments, I butted in impatiently. "Well? Who are 'they'?"

"Geez, be patient woman!" He took an over-dramatic breath, before starting. "As you might have seen, I was in a rather sorry state. But do you blame me? I had just flown... what... a hundred... miles? Is that what you humans call them? Anyway, I'd flown a long way with an arrow in my calf and shoulder."

Mr D butted in suddenly. "My my, humans can fly now?"

Cinder gave a look of challenge, crossing his arms with annoyance. "I'm not a human. I'm a griffin."

"Prove it." As normal, the Wine god sounded grumpy.

"In here? You want me to prove it in here?"

"You got a problem with that?"

"I don't like confined spaces."

"Right. Prove it."


"Prove it."
