The Apology

Assistant District Attorney's Office

Mrs. Margot Yale looked at the phone hesitantly.

She had yet to call the gargoyles and thank them for saving her life on that train; but what could she say. They had rescued her time and time again and all that time she could only see them as mindless beasts. Even when the female, Angela, had tried to talk to her while Miss Maza was at dinner in the dining car, the words that she said to the gargoyle were like venom; but unfortunately the snake had bitten its own tongue and didn't even realize it.

The female had tried to be kind...

Passenger Train : Second Car

Maza said "Mrs. Yale I'll be back in five minutes, I'm going to pick up some food, anything you want?"

Margot said "pick me up some spaghetti"

Maza Said "okay, oh and try talking to her, she looks depressed" and pointed at Angela.

Maza had yet to be able to say anything to the beast and Mrs. Yale decided to maybe try it, after all she needed a break from this paperwork. She walked over to the cage; but kept her distance. Even after talking to one of these "things" Margot still thought of them as beasts. She thought she saw a tear but looked again at Angela and saw nothing there.

"Hello?" The gargoyle didn't respond " do you have a name?" Still no response.

"Great I'm just wasting my time!" Margot turned around to go back to her desk.

"Angela" Margot Froze "My name is Angela"

"Angela, hmm, doesn't fit how about Demona?" Margot Stated.

Angela laughed hard.

Margot was stunned "What's so funny?"

Angela said with a chuckle "That's my mothers' name".

Margot was very stunned and asked "Why did you blow up the clock tower and Castaway's building?"

Angela said " We didn't the clock tower was our home and castaway's building was actually the stage for a trap to kill my clan and it worked they're all dead" she started to cry.

Margot said "well maybe you shouldn't have attacked everyone you come across".

Angela stunned "we don't attack anyone, unless they're doing something wrong, like hurting someone".

Margot yelled "well apparently you've attacked someone because people hate you"

Angela eyes turned red "Gargoyles protect, always!" Margot knew that the bars would contain her so she didn't flinch "and look what we suffer for it, the very people we protect try to kill us!"

Margot yelled "you expect me to believe someone blew up their own building to kill some of you! You're a beast and a monster nothing more, just because you can speak doesn't make you intelligent!"

Angela snarled "So, you show your true colors, what are you going to do with me!"

Margot said "simple; you'll be contained and studied."

Angela let out a battle cry that made Margot want to run; but she stayed and listened to what this creature had to say.

Angela hissed " do I look like a lab rat, I was made to soar, and being captive I'll die of grief and depression within a month".

Margot hissed "You should of thought of that before you scared and hurt a lot of New Yorkers"

Margot turned away as Elisa walked in wondering why the noise level had spiked up.

Back in her office the guilt had overtaken Margot Yale, she read the number she was given and she made a phone call to give an apology she had put off for far too long.
