Gone! Snippet from Gargoyle Hunt for #WeWriWa #Superheroes

Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers in different genres showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.

I am posting snippets from Gargoyle Hunt, Book 3 of Secret Supers.

Blurb
Danger is the last thing on Estelle’s mind when she visits the University of Oxenford for a summer course. But, mysterious thefts and shadowy figures spur her into action. With Toby five thousand miles away, Estelle and her winged horse must hunt for the culprits alone. Soon they are embroiled in a mixed bag of aliens and ancient magic. Toby’s unexpected arrival throws her into turmoil and spurs events into a climax. 

By popular demand, I’m continuing from a scene with a gargoyle in action.
Super Starrella and her flying horse, Rockette, are fighting a live gargoyle. I have omitted a couple of lines to fit.  
You can read last week’s snippet here:

Rockette leaped free. Wings flapping, she circled at a cautious distance from the distorted figure. Its round eyes followed the flying horse and it raised a knobby fist, ready to strike. Moonlight shone through a gap in the clouds, lighting the grotesque head. The creature melted into nothing.
“Gone!” Starrella gasped aloud. “Where the heck did it go?” The flat roof of the tower was empty.
The mare swished her tail in a ghostly white fountain. “Don’t care if I never see that ugly man again!

This ends the scene. You can read the first two chapters, including this scene, by downloading the sample at https://www.instafreebie.com/free/09Suw

    1. Rockette may grumble, but she's always game for a flight.

  3. I am with Jessica, that was too easy! I love the change of direction, and the anticlimax, which builds the tension, Aurora.

    1. Thanks! Of course, she'll have to mislead her friends about her "adventure" since they don't know about her superpower or flying horse.

  5. I like the way she had her sidekick horse work together -- and the disappearing gargoyle. It will be back!

    1. This scene is early in the book, so they have more adventures coming.

  10. We haven't seen the last of that "ugly man" I'm sure. Nice visuals, Aurora.

  11. I agree with Rockette. Sadly, I think that's not the last they'll see of the "ugly man".

  13. I was afraid it was behind her, but maybe it was the moonlight that defeated it.
