A Taste for Gold, Part 2
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Arion was stunned by the magnitude of the request. How could he and an immature gryphon hope to be an adequate defense for all the king's treasure? Nemesis, on the other hand, had no doubts in their ability and readily agreed.
 
2     "We have asked the men of the temple to bring you fruit, Arion. We have told them only that you are visiting," added the female.
 
3     It seemed like only moments had passed before the two elder gryphons had disappeared out the upper exit with a quick flash of golden wings. Then they were alone.
 
4     "You know, Nemesis, I wish you had talked to me before agreeing so quickly," muttered Arion.
 
5     "You did not wish to help?" asked the surprised gryphon.
 
6     "It's not that. I just feel unprepared. I mean, what about my clothes and food? You just ate and won't need more for days. What do we do if someone breaks in?" asked Arion. "No one would be afraid of me."
 
7     "I can go to your home and get some things for you," answered Nemesis reasonably. "It will be like I am taking care of a pet," he grinned at Arion. He loved to allude back to that old joke. *
 
8     While Nemesis was away, the man in the temple garb came with a bowl of fruit as ordered. Arion spoke with him for just a few moments. Then, closing the door firmly, Arion threw the bolt into place once more.
