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 little frog. Please read, comment, and if you like, join the fun. Everyone is welcome.

The greatest advantage of a scooter is its flexibility. You can get through the narrowest passageways, park in the smallest spaces. For a midwife like me this is essential.
I leave the scooter by the door and hurry to the mother-to-be’s bedroom. She smiles, grateful for my presence. The delivery will be easy, no doctors needed.
The father is absent. Perfect.
She’s pushing; the baby slides into my arms.
I turn the transporter-beam on with a rapid blink.
Her child will live: archived, preserved.
One of our children will grow up free, healthy, on the surface of a living planet.
I was very bad with comments last week, there was just too much going on at work. I hope to do better this week.
