Goliath had finally made it to the British clan, they had asked for Goliath on a matter of transferring a member to the Wyvern Clan. He had landed and was greeted by many males of the clan; no females were in sight. A wolf-headed gargoyle smiled and walked toward Goliath, he chuckled while patting Goliath on the shoulder.
"So you answered my call, this is wonderful indeed." The male said with glee.
"Are you the leader of this clan?" Goliath asked with a smile, the wolf chuckled while he shook his head.
"Where are my manners? Yes, I am Clan Leader; my name is Romanov. But I wish to discuss business privately for the other members will not overhear." Romanov said as he waved for Goliath to follow him.
Once in a secluded place, Romanov motioned for Goliath wait, once the male came back Romanov walked in with a cat-like male. Goliath looked puzzled, "Is he the transfer?" if so then Goliath would have to say no, he already had to many males in his clan and he needed more females.
Romanov looked stunned but then laughed, "No, he is my mate, Jackal, I know it is a crazy name but he loves it." Romanov smiled while wrapping his arm around the smaller male's waist, "He wished to be present for the discussion of the transfer." Goliath looked shocked as Jackal smiled and waved at him, he quickly changed the subject, "I've noticed that you don't have any females in this clan-." He was cut off with a chuckle.
"Well we do have only one female, but she is young and the rest of the males are already mated to their brothers. We have no available male for her. But that one particular female is a problem, we wish to expand our clan by adding new members, but she quickly scares them away with her human-like behavior. But Romanov had heard that you were best at teaching discipline, so we sent for you, hoping you could help us." Jackal explained with a sad smile.
Goliath looked shocked, he was more stunned that a female was causing this much trouble then he was when he found out that this clan was homosexuals, not that he had a problem with it, he just felt uncomfortable with the human-like behavior.
"I can see what I can do, but if I cannot handle her I must bring her back to her birth clan." Goliath requested which brought smiles to the two males in front of him.
"Wonderful! Jackal, love, could you go get Reilane for me?" Romanov requested, the smaller male nodded happily as he ran outside.
"I must apologize first hand about her personality, she's in that human age where they want to become rebels against their elders, I am hoping that you can teach her discipline and responsibility better than I could. Also I am hoping that she will find her a mate, she seems so depressed here when she sees her brothers and their mates together."
"How did she become like this? Usually gargoyles don't have that… rebellious trait."
Romanov smiled as he rubbed the back of his neck; "Truth is, we are a very human like clan, we act human mostly and have abandoned our gargoyle ways to survive, which is why we do not trust humans, we know what they can do. So we stay hidden and learn fast about human behavior." He chuckled once again nervously, "but she was just a hatchling when we began to learn the ways of humans, she grew up only knowing the human ways, she doesn't understand none of our gargoyle ancestors which I cannot blame her for, we never taught any of the hatchlings the gargoyle ways.
Just as Goliath was about to ask Romanov why did he didn't teach the ways of their ancestors to the hatchlings, a tall female walked in looking confused. The female was quite tall, about 7'4 and she looked around Angela's age, she was a dark tanned gargoyle with bright red hair; it was extremely spiky Her clothes were just like any rebel teen would wear, long black cargo pants that her knee spurs tore out of. Her tank top reached at the bottom of the female's breast, a well-toned stomach showed, the sleeves looked like they were torn out. And a grey top hat that her horns went through. On her face were two stripe tattoos that started from the bottom of her left eye down to her jaw line. On her right arm were three tattoo stripes in the shape of claw marks.
She stood in the doorway looking confused yet curious about the secret meeting, Romanov smiled as he motioned the female to stand next to him, "Goliath, allow me to introduce, Reilane." He grinned as he patted her shoulder.
She tipped the rim of her hat and nodded, "Ello Cap'n." she greeted in a thick British accent though she had a slur in her words.
"I hope you won't be bother by her slur, friend. She was born with it, and no matter how many times we've tried to give rid of the slur, it won't go away." Jackal blushed as he stood by Romanov's right side.
"Is there something ye wanted meh for, Romanov?" she asked as she rubbed her now sore shoulder.
Romanov smiled sadly as he nodded his head, he hugged the female who was now becoming scared and uncertain. He kept her at arm's length, tears formed in the corner of his eyes.
"Reilane… I want you to listen very carefully. I want you to leave without any display." Romanov said as Reilane paled in terror, Goliath shockly stared at the Clan Leader; he was sure being blunt about this.
"Wha? I-I don't understand… Why do ye want meh to leave? Did I do something wrong?" She asked quickly, her body shaking slightly in fear.
Romanov sighed heavily as he shook his head "No you didn't do anything wrong, honey. It's just we want you to find yourself a mate... you will go with your new Clan Leader here." He bobbed his head toward Goliath.
"A mate!? What makes ye think I wanna mate? I'm perfectly happy with being alone right now!" she inquired loudly, tears were now straining her face.
Romanov sniffled as he shook his head, his mate Jackal decided to step in, "Sweetheart, we've seen how you're depressed around your brothers and theirs mates. Since we don't have any single gargoyles here, we've decided to let you go with Goliath, he has lots of single males there that will be happy to see you."
"Also you've scared away anyone who wished to join our clan, you're too wild and I hope Goliath can teach you some discipline and respect."
"Wha?! No, I ain't going anywhere! That's no reason to banish meh!" Reilane snarled, though she appears to be hurting and scared.
"Leave now Reilane, I hope you can be happy with the Wyvern Clan in New York." Romanov growled, but with the obvious whimpers, his threat wasn't true.
Reilane took a step back, "New York? I ain't goin' there! Please don't make meh leave! I'll be good, I promise!" she pleaded.
Romanov held his head down as he slowly walked toward the broken female. Goliath knew what the male was trying to do so he tried to talk Reilane into leaving, but that only made things worst.
Once the Clan Leader stood in front of Reilane, he stared into her eyes, silently pleading her to leave before he had to do something. She only reponded by narrowling her eyes at him, as she was about to repeat that she wasn't going to leave, Romanov struck her across her face.
Goliath woke from the memory when he felt his stone skin cracking and falling off. Once he was freed from the encasement he was greeted by Elisa who was now looked at the new member of the clan with pity as the female snarled at any male who either talked or walked near her. The Clan Leader sighed as well as he watched to actions unfold for tonight; Reilane was still very pissed yet Goliath could not blame her.
Though he was going to have a talk to her about her current behavior and to tell her to stop holding a grudge and let the past go. Reilane was very hardheaded since she was exiled from the other clan. He walked into the entrance of the castle and rested in the worn out couch Hudson usually sat in, Elisa sat by him and was about to greet him… till a familiar yet still strange voice roared.
"Listen ye overgrown hatchlings! I don't do blokes so back off!" a British accent echoed the stone walls of the castle. Goliath sighed heavily as he held his forehead. Elisa looked to the direction of the voice then to Goliath.
"She's still not used to being here?" she asked, the male only nodded as he rubbed his eyeridge in irritation, maybe Romanov should've warned him what a hassle Reilane would be. It had been almost a week since Reilane had arrived and yet she was still acting like she just came here.
The new member of the Manhattan Clan strolled away from two males as they quickly followed, Angela watched in only pity and irritation, pity for the males, and irritation because of Reilane being so outrageous.
Reilane noticed the couple on the balcony; she tapped her hat, "Ello there." She then noticed Brooklyn and Lexington still trying to talk to her.
She turned around and stomped her foot, "Alright boys! Let meh put this in terms ye might understand; I do notfuck blokes! So unless ye lose the dick, ya ain't gonna get meh, now do I make me self clear?" the two males backed away as they nodded timidly with their hands up in defense.
That was another thing that bothered Goliath, he should've asked of Reilane's interest of mates, Romanov didn't bother to tell him that Reilane was gay. Not that he was against it, he just felt uncomfortable about the human action. Now he had another gargoyle that was looking for a female mate, things were not good for the clan he assumed.
"I don't think you should talk to our brothers like that, Reilane." Angela defended shyly.
The tan gargoyle looked to Angela with a grin, "I don't feel right with the term 'brother', ya know… sounds like inbreeding to meh." She jokes as she walked away. Angela fumed as she blushed but took a breath. Goliath was about to go after the hotheaded female when Elisa stopped him.
"She's just acting out, give her some more time."
Goliath sighed heavily as he looked to where the new member of the clan had just been; "I've never seen a female as wild as her. I expected a male… but she is… not normal."
"She acts like a human teenager, if Angela were raised mostly by gargoyles who act like humans she would act the same." Elisa smiled. Goliath held a faint smile as well as he nodded, "I suppose you're right, although I do not know how to teach someone who doesn't want to listen."
"First let's give her time to adjust to her new home, it must be a shock to be suddenly banished with little explanation." Elisa explained while getting herself a drink, Goliath nodded once again as Elisa handed him a drink.
Reilane was listening to her IPod that her friend had given her just before she left; she mumbled lyrics to Burn it Down by Linkin Park. She felt alone in this new clan, though she didn't let anyone see that side of her; she was already afraid of the males here, they acted so primitive when she first arrived, her clan brothers never acted like that.
The clan leader seemed to have a rod stuck up his ass and thought that he could rule the world. Romanov was always so sweet and yet very serious when necessary. She grimaced at that male's name, she didn't want to remember him as sweet and caring, she wanted to remember her former clan leader as a heartless bastard who didn't care about her even though she used to looked up to him as a father figure.
New York was also not like the place her clan lived, which was in the countryside near London. She wasn't used to tall buildings, smog, and violence. Sure she had watched movies that were violent but she didn't want to be anywhere near it in life. Just her luck though since this clan attracts violence. She learned this the hard way when she met one of the clan's enemies, Quarrymen.
And their human friend seemed so distant yet studying at the same time. The old gargoyle and Bronx were the only ones who seemed to be welcoming. She didn't know how to describe the clan leader's daughter though, she acted very friendly but she was also timid around Reilane. The tan gargoyle didn't know why though but she guessed it was because Angela was the only female in the clan and felt happy about not being the only one now, she could relate to the other female since she was the only one in her birth clan, and she was the only one that was single as well, which was depressing.
She sighed as she turned off her IPod and laid back down on a worn couch she found in a bare room, if she could get some more stuff then this would be her room, somewhere that she wanted to be and feel at home. But this castle was boring, nothing new was around and the boys usually hogged the computer.
"I need to stop whining, I ain't gonna get anywhere if I continue to feel sorry for me self." She growled at herself as she put her top hat on her face to shadow the room, "but damn do I wish I can get me self a beer right now, can't think straight with all this stress."
She continued to rest while thinking about why and what reason did Romanov have to suddenly send her away, she knew it wasn't to find a mate or for scaring off new members of the clan.
She growled, if he didn't want her there he could've just said so, not bring some other clan leader to take her in for she wouldn't feel lonely, she was going to feel that way anyway. She huffed out a breath as she got up, she didn't need this, now she was going to try to be as much as a bitch she could so she could go home.
"Might as well get to know this clan, I might be staying for a while before they finally let meh leave." She groaned as she got up, put her top hat back on, and then walk out of the room to the living room.
Angela was out on a patrol with the new female; she was still a little shy since she forgot how to interact with other females of her race, being in the Wyvern clan as the only female could do that to anyone. Reilane acted distant yet tried to make small conversation, which Angela could barely understand due to the other female's slur.
"Why were you transferred here?" Angela asked innocently, the question had bugged her and she wanted to know why. The other gargoyle looked to Angela then scoffed.
"What makes ye think it's yer business? If ya want to know meh story at least ask meh to dinner first." Reilane flirted though she didn't mean any of it, she figured that Angela was a sheltered female and would be scared away from Reilane's flirtatious behavior.
Angela blushed deep red as she cleared her throat and focused on the view ahead of her, she could barely hear Reilane mutter, "Figures." Angela looked confused but dismissed it once they heard fighting nearby. Reilane quickly landed on the building next to where they heard the fighting at. Angela didn't have much grace in landing since Reilane suddenly pushed her down to the floor, "Don't make a sound, looks like a brawl goin' on." She whispered in Angela's ear.
"I said give me your money, bitch!" a man yelled as he walked toward the woman, another man was knocked out and was on the floor, "Don't make me shoot you, give it to me now and I'll let you live."
"Help!" the woman yelped as the man walked toward her, a cat-like yowl was heard as Reilane landed in front of the woman and faced the mugger, Angela quickly looked to her side and saw that Reilane was gone, how could that female move so fast without Angela knowing?
"Oh shit!" the mugger said as he dropped his gun and ran like hell was after him, Reilane chased him down and knocked him out cold, once the man was taken care of she turned around to find the woman pointing the gun at her.
"What tha hell do ye think yer doin!? I just saved yer sorry ass, ya know!" Reilane growled as her eyes glowed white.
The woman whimpered as she held the gun in her hands, "Please! Stay away from us! I-I'll shoot!" she said quickly and frightened.
"Woman, that is one hell of a way to repay meh for saving ye and yer boyfriend, how about ya drop the gun and I'll leave without fearing yer stupid enough to shoot meh." Reilane said as she motioned with her hands to lower the gun. Suddenly the gun went off and Reilane dodged as many as she could, "No! You're a monster, you'll kill us!" the woman yelled between shots.
"I wish I did now, ye hideous hag!" Reilane shouted as she climbed the wall as fast as she could.
Reilane grabbed Angela's hand gently and led her to the other side of the building so they could take off, "no one is to know about this, alright?" Reilane requested.
Angela nodded, though Elisa was going to hear about this from the couple that Reilane just saved. Once again they were back on their patrol, Reilane was still fuming over the incident and Angela could not blame her, the lilac gargoyle had the same thing happen to her while she saved a group of teenagers, they had yelled and scared her off, thinking that she would hurt them. Goliath had to explained to his daughter that humans feared them and was not always thankful about being rescued.
"So… what's so special about patrols anyway? Don't these humans have others to protect them?" Reilane asked as she landed on a building to rest her wings, Angela followed to do the same.
"Yes but Father thinks that we are making a difference, it's our duty to protect. As my Father tells me." Angela explained as she rubbed her shoulder.
"But these little pests don't appreciate us, why protect 'em if they ain't grateful. Romanov always told meh to stay out of human affairs since they don't like us. But here I have to protect 'em? What's in it for us?" Reilane asked sourly, she didn't like the humans much since she saved that woman now.
"Because it's our duty, yes they don't like us but we have to protect them. It's in our blood. I'm sure father can explain this more than I can but-." Reilane interrupted her.
Reilane scoffed as she rolled her eyes, "Don't give meh that shit! We are an endangered species, humans don't have to worry about going extinct since they are everywhere! They breed like rats and they destroy like fire. If anyone should need protecting its us. I don't understand yer father but I ain't gonna get me self killed over his need to protect vermin."
"You sound just like my mother!" Angela gasped in shock, though she could understand why Reilane was so mad. Angela had felt the same when she first came to New York. Though the way Reilane spoke about the humans reminded her too much of her mother.
"I don't know who she is but if I sound like her then she has the bloody right idea!" Reilane growled as she reopened her wings and jumped off the building to return home, "I suggest you follow meh, yer father doesn't like his little girl being out alone!" she yelled, causing Angela to sigh and sadly follow, she couldn't help but feel that she blew this opportunity to get on Reilane's good side.
