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 doesn’t need to know.”
“Too late.” An angry voice made two embarrassed witches sink to their knees.
“How dare you bring ordinary humans into my realm?”
“Silence! The portal-bikes were for you alone, not tourists. I trusted you… I take it they paid you handsomely?”
“Yes, but we’d give you…”
“Money means nothing to me.”
“They brought their dreams. Just look at them.”
Mab’s gaze wandered to the visitors’ faces. They looked around with glassy eyes and dreamy smiles.
“I see. Introduce me.”
“Queen Mab, meet Rochelle, Dale, Magaly, Louise, Justjoyfulness, Joy, Alicia, Michael, Björn, Isadora, and Stephanie.”

Last week, several people said in reply to my little faerie story that it would be cool to visit the magical realm. I thought that could be arranged. And yes, I cheated with the word count. I hope Rochelle will forgive me.
