Angels and Gargoyles, Part 4

In 2012 I published a novella, Angels and Gargoyles and offered it for free. Since then it has been downloaded 1675 times. I thought I would post it on my blog a little at a time for your enjoyment. I’ll post it once or twice a week. If you would like a free copy, go to http:/smashwords.com/b/149430. Here is Part 3. Enjoy.

A small Cherub flew to their table to take their orders for coffee; black for Garth, cream and sugar for Three. Garth and Three sat in uncomfortable silence as they waited for their coffee. Garth started to bite his yellow nails while Three smoothed her ruffled feathers.

Finally, after their order arrived Three asked, “Do you mind if I ask you a question? I have never talked to a gargoyle before.”

“Of course not. I think that is what we are supposed to do; to get to know each other better.”

“Well, I was wondering, do all gargoyles have names that begin with G?”

“No, no, of course not. I have a griffin friend named Griff, and eagle friend named Edward, and a dragon friend named Willie. Actually, he is a wyvern, a two-legged winged dragon.”

Three stared at Garth for a minute. “You have got to be kidding?”

Garth laughed, “I was kidding. Those aren’t their real names. I was just joking. I don’t even know a wyvern. But I did meet several silver eagles when I worked at the Chrysler Building–none named Edward.”

Three tossed her hair and said, “I do not understand jokes. I just don’t get them. I don’t think angels have a sense of humor.”

“I hope that isn’t true. Every creature needs a sense of humor. I guess because we gargoyles live so close to humans, their sense of humor must have rubbed off on us.  Now let me ask you, are all angels women?”

“No, angels are asexual; neither male nor female.”

“I don’t think so. You have breasts.”

Three looked down at the mounds on her chest. “I guess you are right. I never paid any attention to them before. Do I look like a woman to you?”

“Are you kidding? You are definitely a woman from head to toe, a beautiful woman, and believe me I know. I have often seen human women.”
