Here we are with a another great group of short fiction. Seventeen entries.  Wow.

I enjoy reading the different takes of the prompt each week.

Here are the winners and entries for June 5 contest-- 

A gargoyle, from a top an ancient building, plots its coming escape into the real world.

So here we go.

Five Steem to  geekpowered  for Trapped in Stone.  I absolutely loved the imagery of the gargoyles being carved out of stone.

Three Steem to nobyeni  for The Last Gargoyle, A gargoyle is tired of being teased and treated poorly by the pigeons, the Gargoyle looks to those that went before him to escape.

One steem to squirezed Slumber Disturbed.  I liked this story for implying a gargoyle doing want it was designed to do once it escaped, which is to protect the church building.

Congrats to this week's winners.
