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.

Facing The Enemy
Your black eyes stare at me. Do I see desperation in these eyes? Good.
In the past, my feeble attempts at self-defense with inadequate weaponry led to chaos and destruction, yet you persisted. I nearly gave up. I quailed at the mere sight of you.
Then I had an idea and acted. The look on your face is priceless.
My wiremesh cage protects my seedlings. I win.
67 words. Sixty-seven. Hah! Sorry for being silly…
I’m sorry but I’m still slow with comments and replies. I try to read as many stories as I can.
