Friday Fiction – Mythical Monsters

It was born out of the depths of time and memory, stone carvings of a mythical creature that once soared the heavens and brought its wrath down on those who deserved it. The Gorawlย was made of the Gods doing, brought to life with a mere wish, a flight of fancy, Gods could be awesome like that.
