When Deb Whittam retired from hosting 50-Word Thursdays, Kristian asked to pick it up and offered me a spot as co-host. Obviously, I jumped at the opportunity as I love this weekly prompt. Last week he was host, so this week, I am hosting. My prompt will go out at Midnight GMT on Thursday, and a recap will be posted by 10:00 PM GMT next Wednesday.
**Find the muse within the photo or line provided and follow where it leads. It can be a story, anecdote, poem. Anything!

and ne’er was a creature so true and so loyal
Dav Pilkey, God Bless the Gargoyles
High on the roof he sat. Most people thought it was a statue carved in the stone. A relic from olden days. But a few knew that it was very much alive. A creature which came to life in the dead of the night only. It watched over the city. Keeping the criminals at bay. It’s aspect was repelling but it’s nature was true and ne’er was a creature so true and so loyal. When invaders were trying to enter the city by breaching it’s wall, these gargoyles came to its rescue. And a very few people knew the secret.
