Gargoyles: Sleep is Sweeter (Goliath)

Written very early in my fanfic career.

Title: Sleep is Sweeter
Author: voleuse
Fandom: Gargoyles
Character: Goliath
Rating: G
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Summary: In the beginning, he dreamed.
Notes: Spoilers for City of Stone



I dreamt a dream as I slept. It was a long one, a sad one. My angel, my dust-to-dust angel, came to me again. She spoke, but I could not make out her words.

It was almost as if I hadn't held her crumbled body in my hands.

She visited many times, but never for very long. Each time she left, she pressed a kiss on my cold brow before she departed. I always tried to reach out and hold her close, but I was frozen.

The dream continued, and she stopped coming. My only memory was the faint, bittersweet tear I tasted on my stone lips.

As the days lengthened into years, it was easier to forget. It was easier to fall into deeper sleep, where nothing could pain me. Where I wouldn't be haunted by the past.

I slept, and no longer dreamed.
