Welcome to a new year of Friday Fictioneers! We are a community of writers from around the world who post 100-word stories each week, all based on a photo prompt provided by our effervescent leader, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week’s fabulous photo is by Rochelle’s daughter-in-law.

When my daughter, Hope, was a little girl, we had a magic tree.
She would talk to the tree every morning. Sometimes, she would ask a favor: a toy, a ball. The favor would be granted. Then she asked for a puppy! She named him Muggles.
As a teenager, she developed alternative theories for the appearance of these items. Muggles? She thought Dad must have rescued him from the pound.
But I knew better.
One night, we found Hope with Muggles, sprawled in the street, victims of a hit-and-run.
I rushed to the tree, and asked for the ultimate favor.
