I stole a statue to buy a better future for myself. But when my gargoyle comes to life, can I give him up? Brought to the end of my rope, I steal a statue from a traveling menagerie. The money I’ve been promised for it is supposed to buy me a new start in life. It sounds simple: steal the statue, hand it to the buyer, get paid. But when my precious statue suddenly comes to life, claiming he’s a gargoyle prince who was taken against his will from the magical kingdom in Nerifir, things change drastically.
