Back at the castle, the others were still reeling about what happened. They were all in the great hall, talking about Goliath and Elisa. Broadway and Angela had stopped the fighting and realised how much they loved each other.
"Poor Goliath, I can't even imagine what he's feeling." Brooklyn said.
"I just can't believe that Elisa is gone." Angela said.
"Aye, she was a fine lass. Goliath will be devastated. I can't see him returning anytime soon." Hudson said.
"It's going to be hard, trying to live life without Elisa." Lex said.
"She was always there for us from the very beginning." Broadway said.
"We've all been through so much together." Brooklyn said.
"What about her parents and her brother?" Lex said.
"We should let Goliath tell them. It's only right." Hudson said. Bronx started to bark.
"What's the matter, boy?" Brooklyn asked. Then a very tired Goliath walked in.
"Goliath!" Lex said. They got up and went to him.
"Are you alright?" Brooklyn said.
"We know about Elisa!" Broadway said.
"We're so sorry." Angela said.
"Is there anything we can do?" Lex said.
"Stand back and give him some room. Are you alright, Lad?" Hudson said.
"Yes, I am exhausted and weak from the fight, but nothing a day's sleep will not heal." Goliath said. The other's looked curiously at him.
"Goliath, we know about Elisa." Brooklyn said.
"We know what you had to do." Angela said.
"We want you to know that we forgive you. You did it for the greater good." Lex said.
"I know what I had to do. But there is something more important we need to discuss." Goliath said then he went to the door and held his talon out.
"Goliath, what's going on?" Brooklyn said. Then he pulled Elisa out of the shadows. They saw her and were shocked.
"Elisa?" Lex said.
"Is that you?" Broadway said.
"Yeah, it's me." Elisa said.
"ELISA!" They all cried excitedly, running and hugging her. Goliath moved aside.
"What happened?" Broadway said.
"We thought you were dead." Brooklyn said.
"How is this possible?" Hudson said.
"I can't believe you're alive." Angela said.
"I'm glad to be back." Elisa said.
"Please give her some space. She has been through a lot tonight." Goliath said. They all moved to let Elisa sit down. Goliath stood behind her.
"While I was under the influence of Zathandra, I knew what was happening and I wasn't in control of what she was doing. I knew what had to be done to stop her, to stop me, but I feared that Goliath wouldn't be able to do what was necessary. But he did, and I forgave him for that. When Zathandra was gone, both of us were facing the fates, the weird sisters from Avalon." Elisa said.
"They commended what I had done, no matter how much it hurt, they said that they could bring Elisa back, but not as a human. They could bring her back as a Gargoyle and they brought her forward to ask her. When she agreed, they took some of my life force to give Elisa a chance to live again." Goliath said.
"And here I am. It's going to take some getting used to, but I can live with this." Elisa said.
"That is amazing, and we'll all be here to help you adjust." Angela said.
"It's great to see you alive." Hudson said.
"I'm glad to be alive." Elisa said. Then they noticed that Broadway and Angela were close again. "You two look closer than ever."
"Yeah, when we knew what Goliath had to do, it made us re-evaluate our relationship. We love each other." Angela said.
"Finally, the arguing can stop." Brooklyn said. Hudson looked out the window.
"It's almost sunrise, and we could all do with some rest." Hudson said.
"I agree." Goliath said. Then they all went out to their parapets. Goliath led Elisa up to the one next to him.
"I can't believe I'm actually doing this." Elisa said, looking down at the world below.
"Relax and let the sun turn you. You won't notice." Goliath said. He took his position. Elisa took a stance. As the sun rose, they looked at each other. Goliath took her talon and they smiled as they both turned to stone. This was going to be the start of a new and exciting adventure, for both of them.
