The Rain :: A Drabble

Another day and another drabble, which is a short story of exactly 100 words.

.: The Rain :.

Looking up, she closed her eyes and let the water rain down on her.

As the rain fell on her face, she smiled and thought “How peaceful.”

The rain helped to quiet the world around her; it was her escape.

There was no lightening; there was no thunder; only the sound of falling rain filled the air. As it fell, her stress washed away.

She looked down at her feet, watching the rain travel along its path.

She loved the rain and splashing in the puddles.

She wanted to stay longer, but it was time to turn off the shower.

  1. Brilliant Lenore! You really did a wonderful job with only hundred words.
    After reading this one, i am thinking about quitting this challenge. I can’t really match up to this level.

  2. You have a gift for that last-second surprise. Keep up the great work, Lenore. I look forward to reading your wonderful blog in 2012.

    P.S. I bought bananas the other day. It doesn’t look good.

    1. A pleasure to see you here, Charles. Thank you for visiting.
      It’s funny you mentioned bananas, I am unable to pick out the perfect bunch without thinking about you.
      Lately, the bunches have been much too green. Always risky bringing home very, very green bananas. One never knows how they will ripen.

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
