She then decides to take a short cut which she is later reprimanded for. This sets a life lesson for Diana later in life.
An older Diana is now based in Washington DC where a timid quiet Barbara joins the museum and Diana becomes friends with her, in turn Barbara is in awe of Diana. Wonder Woman stops a robbery in which the FBI ask the museum to name the artifacts. One of these happens to be a Dreamstone with a Latin inscription that says anyone that holds it is granted one wish. Diana without realising asks for her lover to return and when Diana saves Barbara from an attack on the streets she wishes to be like Diana, she has no idea what this entails.
A businessman is failing in his work and he attends a gala at Smithsonian hoping to get his hands on the stone, which he does thanks to Barbara. His wish is to become the stone.
