Time for the Friday Fictioneers with another prompt from Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
The task is to write a story: beginning, middle, and end, in 100 words or less. You can find all the Fictioneers’ stories when you click on the Froggy. Please read, comment, and if you like, join the fun. Everyone is welcome.

This week is also the anniversary of our Fairy Blog Mother, Rochelle, who’s been managing the fun for three years now. I admire your patience, Rochelle, thank you for doing this every week. It has become something I’m looking forward to. And now, onwards…

When it was done, Abigail rummaged through her handbag, extracted her wand and tapped it lightly against the old, decommissioned school bus. The bus quivered, rose from the ground, then settled back softly.
“Hop in, ladies. No more freezing of our butts on the broomsticks. Let’s party.”
The title comes from The Who.
