Samara's Salvation Julia Hughes

A short story to complement "The Griffin's Boy". Samara's Salvation: I remember the sweet meadow grass skimming my thighs as I waded towards him. He clung onto his griffin as though scared I might steal it, and made a sign against evil. I have that effect on strangers; there's Pict blood on my mother's side, and I've heard the word 'Pictsie', and even 'pixie' muttered by the ignorant. But then his griffin gave a welcoming cluck and nuzzled at my hair. Lillian came skipping over to join us, we explained about Luke, and begged for his help. Now that I know him better, I know he'd risk his life for others.

The Griffin's Rescue Julia Hughes

The Griffin's Rescue ... or how to train your griffin to snatch you from certain death. "What happens if you fall off?" "You pray your griffin catches you before you hit the ground," he replied. (Conversation between Frankie and The Rider, taken from "The Griffin Cryer".) This is a complete short story, but leads into a longer work in progress that's taking a little too long to progress.
