Her Life

By BLotusflower24

Fantasy / Adventure

Chapter 1 The Birth


It was a cold winter's night, when Elisa went into labor in her small apartment. She remembered the day perfectly Angela and Broadway were coming over for dinner and a certain detective was going too far in cooking for the arrangements. By the time, she was done there were more than three food portions on the dining room table." Elisa." The detective turned to the gargoyle with a smile." Don't you think this is a little much after all I worry that you're overworking yourself." He said stroking a hand on her heavily swollen belly. She frowned, a pout on her lips." I'm fine Goliath and so is he/ she." Elisa said motioning to the unborn in her womb then with a sigh she walked back into the kitchen.

Goliath crossed his arms and followed her unconvinced. Ever since they discovered his wife's pregnancy the gargoyle had been on edge. He began keeping close watch on her during his nightly visits going as far as to suggest visiting Fox during the day for safety measures. This drove Elisa mad to the point where she locked her balcony door for a few days to prevent Goliath from coming inside the house. Afterwards, she burst into tears and apologized but that was because of hormones yet Goliath somehow knew she was sincere.

"Hey we're here." Elisa smiled at the sight of her daughter and son-in-law." Welcome you two." Goliath said embracing Angela who snuggled into her father's chest. Even if she was married, Angela would always be a daddy's girl. This did worry Elisa a bit, she and Goliath still had no idea of the baby's gender. If it was a boy, he would later take over as clan leader from his father. A girl and she will take Angela's spot as daddy's favorite but what was mostly on her mind that worried was that baby was a hybrid. Elisa wondered if it would be more like her or Goliath. She shrugged" It's best to find out later." Suddenly, the woman felt a sharp pain in her side." Ok maybe now." She let out an anguished outcry the gargoyles rushing to her aid. Goliath picked her up and laid his wife on the couch.

"Broadway gather the clan; Angela call Elisa's parents." Broadway flew from the apartment while Angela dialed the in-laws number then she hung up." No answer but father who will deliver the child?" Goliath sat near his wife in deep though her cries torturing him as she grabbed his hand. All he wanted was to take the pain from his beloved, Goliath knew only one way." I will now get the necessary tools to do so."

At quick speed Angela gathered some towels, water, and a blanket. Goliath leaned over the pained Elisa kissing her forehead gently" Don't worry love I'll take the pain away." He said preparing to receive the product of their love. Broadway during the time had returned with the rest of clan who sat waiting patiently on the balcony. A curtain blocked their view of the birth but they could still hear Elisa's soul wrenching cry it took all of their self-control not to rush in inside. An hour passed and they were still waiting for the new member;" This wait is killing me!" Lexington said gripping the rail.

"It takes longer for humans to deliver than Gargoyles lad." Hudson said before a loud cry was heard. Everyone bolted from their seats as Angela went outside to greet them. Tears of joys filled her irises" It's a girl, I have a sister." The clan cheered in victory another female in their clan." Father says you all can come in to see her." Slowly the clan walked in beholding an exhausted Elisa holding a bundle in her arms. They gazed in awe at the child she had dark blue hair and tannish skin just like Elisa. In addition, she had Goliath's dark hair and eyes along with a pair of wings, talons, small horns and fangs.

"She's so cute." Brooklyn started cooing the newborn. Hudson pat Goliath on the back," Never thought I see the day you two would have a child together." Elisa blushed recalling when she first met Goliath and the gargoyles she never in her life though she would become the wife of one. Goliath sat next to Elisa kissing her cheek gently placing a hand near his daughter who quickly began reaching for it." So what is her name?" Broadway questioned.

He stood taking the baby in his arms, she yawned before Goliath positioned her to his chest." Her name is Emilie Avalon Maza." He said proudly as the newborn snuggled into him.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Laraine Smith: Your story is both sweet and beautiful! You are a true artist! Keep up the great work! I also love the picture that you chose for your book! :)

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...
