RE: The Gryphon
Interesting direction you took with this one @iamraincrystal
I like how you show Erin has essentially abandoned his roots of where he came from, become a hardened warrior with less emotional connection. That would be every soldiers path I guess.
One of the final passages gives this impression clearly...
Stabbing the earth with the old shovel I held, I noticed how old man Remus slightly flinched away from me. "Erin.. This isn't you.." he softly said in the silence of the night as he wobbled on his cane.
