Misery was looking at the shops in Canterlot, she really wanted to go to the castle and bother her brother. Bleak Claw wanted to find something for her though in the shops. So she let him lead her into shop after shop. She was getting tired though. She knew that Gryphons liked bright shiny things but he was putting a lot of gold baubles on her and it was weighing her down.
Bleak had another ring in his claw as he approached her. “This has sapphires; they shine like your eyes.”
“Bleakie, those are beautiful. Thank you, but can we go to the castle now? Please?”
Bleak Claw scratched his head slightly and tilted his head at her. “I just want to make you happy.”
“Oh Bleakie, you make me very happy.” She kissed him lightly on the beak. “I’m itching to tell Dissy about his LillyRose.”
“Oh! Dearest you promised her you wouldn’t tell him.” The Gryphon blinked.
Misery laughed. “I’m not going to tell him right out… I didn’t promise to not tell her mother and if Dissy is in the same room at the time then… oops.”
“I have married a truly evil female.” Bleak Claw shook his head as his feathers fluffed out.
“Yes, but I make things exciting.” They started walking to Canterlot castle.
