This a continuation to [Sept21] Tribble Month 16: Arrival.
“Seriously? You’re gonna have a gnome take part in the show?” the handler of a particularly angry-looking griffin said, eying me.
Myrial snorted. “I didn’t realize befriending garden gnomes is socially frowned upon nowadays. But no, he’s not a gnome. Just an idiot.”
“I’m not an idiot!” I snapped.
Myrial looked at me, one eyebrow raised. “Suuuure, and I’m considering registering you to ride with a pegasus instead of a griffin in the evening’s show.”

“A contract, which you already broke,” Myrial interrupted. “I’m not upheld by my side of it anymore, other than the fact that I have the right to decide your punishment. Whatever happens once you get on that griffin, you deserve it.”

After all, I didn’t (try to) kill Tymon for this.
