There was a god named Apollo, he was the god of the sun. Apollo always made jokes towards Eros (another name for cupid) but, Eros did not find Apollo’s jokes very funny. For you see, Cupid was the god of love. One day, Eros was fed up with Apollo’s jokes and decided to shoot Apollo with one of his love arrows as Apollo was playing his lyre for some of his wood nymphs. Eros arrow struck Apollo at the exact moment that Apollo was attempting to impress the nymph, Daphne. As a result, Apollo fell madly in love with Daphne. Eros wanted revenge on Apollo because he was sick and tired of all Apollo’s mean jokes.

Where is your daughter
Eros then decides to shoot Daphne with an arrow except this arrow was different this arrow didn’t make Daphne fall in love, this arrow made Daphne reject Apollo. Eros knew that if he made Apollo fall in love with someone that does not love him back it would break Apollo’s heart. Daphne didn’t want to be with Apollo at all she wanted to get far away from Apollo, so Daphne ran away to her dad for help. Apollo was heartbroken and confused he didn’t understand why his love had left him. Apollo felt as empty as Pandora’s box after she opened it. Daphne asked her dad to disguise her as a tree so Apollo could never find Daphne again.
Climax and Falling Action
Apollo wasn’t going to give up he had a plan to find the love of his life and he was going to stick to it. He went to his twin sister Artemis for help. Artemis was the goddess of the moon. Apollo explained to his sister “Artemis you need to help me find Daphne she’s my true love and she has ran away from me!” Artemis felt bad for her brother and didn’t like to see him upset she agreed to helping him. They agreed on looking from the time they woke up until they got tired that night. They started their journey in Mount Olympus they searched up and down and all around, but she did not show up
Next stop was Athens where Daphne’s dad lived. Apollo told Artemis, “ Daphne’s dad lives here we can go to him for help maybe she’s close by.” Artemis started to wonder if they were ever going to find Daphne. They found Daphne’s dad and asked him “Have you seen your daughter she has ran away and can’t be found anywhere?” Daphne’s dad did not budge Artemis suspected something was up. Artemis told Apollo she did not like the feeling of what was going on Daphne’s dad definitely was keeping something from us. Apollo argued he believed Daphne’s dad had no clue where Daphne could be. Apollo and Artemis kept looking but they both grew to be very tired after hours and hours of looking for Daphne.
“ Artemis I'm as tired as a bear during hibernation we have not found my love yet and I'm losing hope, it is time to put the moon in replace of my sun.” “My love for her will live on but I cannot waste my time looking for her every day, we just have to believe she will return on her own." The next day Artemis and Apollo traveled back to their home in Mount Olympus. Apollo would always have hope in her return but could not waist his time any longer. He knew if she loved him she would return to him herself. Every night for the rest of eternity Artemis would replace the sun with the moon to indicate the hope and love Apollo had for Daphne but also the tough time Apollo and Artemis went through to find his lost love, Daphne.
Sadly, Daphne never returned but Apollo lived on with his normal day to day live.
