Every Wednesday we get a new picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, a writing challenge graciously hosted by our Fairy Blog Mother Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
The task of the challenge 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.

She’d helped save two worlds from annihilation, travelled through galaxies, fought powerful enemies, found powerful allies—and now she was home. Back on Earth to enjoy the peace she’d helped maintain.

She stared out of the window at the idyllic image: horses in the snow feeding from their manger. Nothing had changed. People were behaving as they always had.
She realized that she was the one who had changed. She wouldn’t take freedom for granted ever again. Her world needed a watcher, a guardian. That would fill her emptiness.
