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.


19. The (not so) terrible secret of Friday. - Cinder

After the little... incident... I sat down and waited for everyone else to finish. It took quite a while, and there seemed to be an excited buzz around the place. I yawned, leaning back to look at the stars. They were faint little specks. Nothing like the bright little spheres you could see from the mountains. Silly humans and their silly light pollution. After what had to have been at least half an hour, Alyx walked over.

"So who's side are you on?"

I looked at her, still leaning back. I seemed to be looking at her a lot upside down. "What?"

She gave me an odd look. "Is that your favourite word or something? Anyway. Capture the Flag. Who's side are you on?"

"Capture the flag? And no."

"You're telling me you haven't heard or played Capture the Flag?"

"What is this 'Capture the Flag'?"

"Hell, you're not on my team." She stalked off, back to her own table.

"Aren't you in a nice mood?" I called after her. Capture the Flag? What was this? The demi-gods all seemed to be gravitating toward the forest. Ah well. I might as well find out what was going on. Besides. I rather wanted to fight Alyx again. It sounded fun.
