How A Child Changed The World by JenL How A Child Changed The World by JenL
A tiny little apartment.
Middle of the night.
A little girl huddled in the corner of a room, crying.
A man stood over her, yelling.
She was terrified.
She covered her head with her hands.
It was dark.

A creature formed from the shadows in the back of the room.
The Grey Devil.
Emergence from darkness.
A creature of grey with long horns and wings.
The yelling stopped.
Attacked from behind.
The man is dragged away from the little girl.

The devourer begins from the back of the neck, paralizing the prey, and works into the skull.
Then to the major organs.
Crunching of bones.
And limbs are eaten last.
Licking blood off of its fingers, nothing is left behind.

One more remains.
The Grey Devil turns to feed on the remaining human.
Stopped short, the creature freezes.
The human did what no other human has ever done before.
It did not run away.
It came to the creature.

What is this emotion this small human feels?
It is not fear.
It is not anger.
An emotion unfamiliar to the dark creature.
To puzzle a monster of such.
The small human reaches her arms up to the Grey Devil.
What is it this human wants?
Why does it not run away?
She puts her arms around the Grey Devil.
Is this joy? For me?


How Chainhinge and Irene met. ^_^

- People always feel fear or hatred towards gargoyles. They've never had a human feel positive emotions towards them before, so it's rather confusing to Chainhinge when Irene comes to him instead of running away and with a sense of joy. ^_^

- Gargoyles can sense the emotions, desires and feelings inside of humans. They can also tell who those feelings are directed towards.

- To gargoyles all humans are nothing but filthy, perverse, discusting and evil creatures.

- Gargoyles do not discriminate age or gender of humans. They eat all humans the same.

- Gargoyles do not view themselves bad. In a way they are a neccessary evil.

- A gargoyles most prized feature is their horns. To them their own horns are their pride and joy. ^_^

In a way yeah. They're both shadow gargoyles created by the same person.
