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.

I was convinced our first contact with Aliens would unite humanity. We would act as one people: enlightened, peaceful, secure in the knowledge that we are no longer alone in the universe.
That didn’t happen. Instead the usual scare-mongering and sabre-rattling ensued. Our visitors’ peaceful advance party was murdered. The Aliens were not amused. They reduced our numbers drastically and now keep the rest of us in an enclosed area for conservation, and experiments.
Today it’s my turn. These strange objects on the table must be an IQ-test of some sorts. I don’t have a clue.
Crown of creation, indeed.
Back at work, not in a cheerful mood…
