99 words: Loki versus Horus -- goal: tell a story in 99 words with Egyptology prompt
Looking for new gods to fall for his tricks, Loki sent the Pharaoh of Egypt a present: Medusa's head in a box.

The unsuspecting Pharaoh opened the box and promptly turned to marble. Overjoyed, Loki watched as Horus struggled in vain to revive the statue.

Hathor approached her son with the ankh.

Within moments of meditation, the Pharaoh became flesh again and Horus regained his power. Before the God of Deceit could apologize or escape, Horus catapulted Loki out of Egypt.

"Nicely foiled," Loki conceded. "But I am sneakier than that." He smiled at the ankh in his hand.
