Here is my response to today’s challenge, with the challenge words bolded:
Anubis starts his quest of finding a shimmering blue butterfly in the realm of monsters.
Why he looks for something so beautiful there no one knows.
The guardians light his way with his son’s oil covered head smoldering on the tip of a pike. This is when he realizes that his choice of a place to start might not have been such a good idea, but it too late to save his son.
Moral: Be careful of where you start looking, as the choice may have unintended consequences.
