Add me to the list of retired and doing the challenges, but unlike some of the rest of us, I was doing them long before I retired and I am not making any endeavor to write for publication.

@Elckerlyc .... Magnum Opus .... Elck writes a last line that Goggle does not translate. It recognizes the phrase as Finnish, which I strongly doubt, but even if I say it's Latin, which is what I believe, it is not translated. So... doing my best without that probably key phrase ....

Elek gives us a contrast and a transformation which leads to an exclamation.
Edit with @Peter V's help (Thanks!!!) Elek shows us by means of contrast that even when impossible dreams and ambitions succeed the results are not all that they are cracked up to be.

@DannMcGrew .... Mariposa monarca .... Dann made me smile as he personalizes a transformation that is ages old.

@johnnyjet .... On a Whim or Stray Thought .... John helps us to understand that all parents have a tough job and just when you think find a little humor someone gives you a bite.

@Vaz .... A Life by the Sword .... tells us a story of a double transformation, to someone whose humanity is in question and back to someone who knows and lives by the only code which leaves room for life. Revenge is never sweet for long.

@scarpelius .... Fields of butterflies under moonlight .... Scarpe brought me a transformation I'd never considered. Now I might look twice when something beautiful comes flitting by.

@Celine_Brace .... Acceptance in Birkenau .... Celine brings us to the site of perhaps the greatest modern evil and shows us the transformation that changes people and the world.

Celine, Welcome to Chrons and the 75. What an awesome story! Thanks for sharing.

A reminder to those who haven't written their stories yet: there are only a few days left to do so.

But I must say, the stories that have been entered already are excellent!
