The Bet (Gargoyle)

I travel through the darkness in the cemetery.

‘Why did I take this stupid bet? There’s not enough money in the world to justify this trip,’ I thought to myself.

As I gingerly step around some of the headstones, trying not to trip, something catches my attention. A large figure stands to the right of me. 

I jump startled.

“What the!”

There before me stands a Gargoyle. I’ve never seen one in real life before, only on TV.

I know not to get too close, but I felt drawn to it.

I creeped closer to it, eyeing it suspiciously.

With my entire focus on the Gargoyle, I didn’t pay attention to where I was walking. Tripping over a branch, I go to catch myself, only to land on the Gargoyle.

Before I could gather my thoughts or balance, the Gargoyle moved. With its arms crushing me and its talons digging into my back, I felt nothing but pain.

I scream in agony as the pain grows. Looking up, I see the red eyes of the Gargoyle hungrily devouring me.

Everything fades to black as I lose all strength.
