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.


23. Why hallo thar. - Cinder

I stayed back to begin with. I stayed with the guards by the flag, shifting from foot to foot, preparing myself. I know I couldn't kill anyone, and I'd been told not to attack. This was going to be more of a challenge than I thought. After a few minutes the horn called out, and I dipped my head to the guards before taking off. A few early autumn leaves scattered as I lifted myself up into the tree tops. I would be best above, I didn't really want to get myself stuck. Now that would be embarrassing. Besides. I can see through leaves well enough...

From below I am near invisible at night. The only way someone could really tell I was there was from either my shadow or they might notice how good I am at blocking out stars. Below me the sound of sword against sword could be heard as the demigods below fought. Silly little things, demigods. They act all strong and cocky until they get eaten alive.

So far I'd seen nothing anyone else couldn't see. Everything I heard was easily heard by demigods, and right now I was feeling ever so slightly useless. Maybe if I ducked beneath the leaves, and explored the forest floor a little harder. After all. Demigods can't fly. The day sons and daughters of the gods start flying, I'll be one of the first to know. Scratch that. The rate this imprisonment is going, I will be the first.


It had to have been around fifteen minutes before I spotted them. Sneaky little children of Athena skulking through the bracken. Sneaky little demigods trying to tie the rest of them in a little trap. They would probably gone by the time I get help. There's probably nothing I could do. Apart from attack. That, and I can smell Alyx down there.
