February 9, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a rainbow in a puddle. Is it a silver lining of sorts or a false reflection? Think about what it might mean or convey. Simple science? Hope? Or the doom of humankind? Create action or character reflection. Go where the prompt leads you.
Through the window I could see him standing by the puddle. He would stoop down and scoop his hand in the water, stand up and look to see if something was there.
I went out to investigate and found him still mesmerised by the puddle. He pointed and I saw in the puddle a rainbow’s reflection.
Together we stared at it. Then he bobbed down and scooped another handful.
I said, “Look at that, you’ve got it.”
He grinned at me proud of his catch.
Not wanting to drop it we stepped towards home. His mum loved his imagination.
