Golden Nemesis, Part 2
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Arion was a candidate to become the companion caregiver for a young gryphon. Now it was his turn to be examined. It took Arion a moment to realize that the gryphons were not reading his mind so much as they were speaking to him telepathically.
 
2     "What is this I see about injustice in your mind?" asked the male.
 
3     "My father is being shunned by the king even though he did nothing wrong. There was never any proof against him, yet no one believes him. This injustice makes him very sad."
 
4     "Does that bother you?" asked the gryphon.
 
5     Arion nodded. "My father's whole life revolves around serving King Kyros. It hurts to see him unhappy."
 
6     "Young Arion," the female's voice asked, "would you consider my son a pet?"
 
7     "Maybe, I mean, I might," gulped Arion.
 
8     "An honest answer, at least," said the male.
 
9     "I have no doubt your mind will be changed on that score," said the female with a smile in her voice.
