The Gargoyle

A work in progress

Chapter 1

Once upon a time, in a little town in the woods, there lived a gargoyle. He lived on the top of the little church on the edge of town, crouched on his pedestal, keeping watch over the steeple. He liked to watch people going about their lives, marrying, worshipping, burying. He looked over the little cemetery beside the church, and could just see the main entrance. People were so strange, such soft beings, and they fascinated the gargoyle.
