“Do you think it wise to leave?” Corson rounded on the keep’s guardian, eyes blazing defiance at the horned demon.
“I refuse to be subjected to my father’s unrelenting nagging. I am bored with the training he subjects me to. I will be on the mortal plane if his lordship needs me.” He said the last bit in a sarcastic tone. “I’ll return when I have tired of the humans.”
“Do you at least have something for Cerberus?”
“Of course, tell my father not to wait up, I may be gone for awhile.”
Corson walked away before he could be delayed any further. It wasn’t that he didn’t appreciate his station, he just found it so irritating and boring at times. Just because he was the son on the Morning Star he was expected to act a certain way. He wondered if his father merely found amusement in his disdain for it all. At least in the mortal realm he could find some sort of enjoyment. Humans were oh so interesting. He stopped by the kitchen on the way out, grabbing a large leg of lamb while the head cook’s back was turned and headed for the gate.
Cerberus lifted his three heads as he came up and he smiled at the giant hound. The beast’s back stood at least eight feet from the ground. He was truly majestic. “Here boys, I got you a present, now share it.” He held out the lamb leg and they all three grabbed it. He patted it on the side then walked up the steps to the large gate. “Be good now.” He activated the gate and stepped through and into the land of humans. He found himself standing in a large park and waved the gate closed behind him. With a mere thought he was dressed in more appropriate clothing. When he stepped out of the small clump of woods, he was a little surprised to see it was actually part of a larger grounds. A red brick building stood across the long stretch of green, young men and women reading and chatting or even playing musical instruments. It took him a moment to realize it was a university and he smiled. Colleges were full of all kinds of interesting people.
