Thanks Susanna for these fun contests!
Happy Valentiny-ing Everyone!
It was Valentine’s Day! The sun was smiling, the sky was singing, and the clouds were feeling extra bubbly. Except RC. He was feeling nimbifirous. He wanted to find a parade, or a picnic, or a shiny, clean car -and rain on it. He was tired of being the one nobody wanted around. The cloud that made everyone complain.
“Rain! Rain! Go away!” the kids sang.
“Rain? Again?” The grown-ups complained.
Wherever he went, people wished him away.
“Well not today!” RC thundered, and he blew away, gray and lumpy. Angry. Sad. Alone.
Down below one tiny flower waved at him.
He moved lower. “Quit waving at me.” RC rumbled.
“I’m not waving at you. I’m asking for your help,” replied Tiny Flower.
“Why should I help you?” scoffed RC.
“Don’t you see how thirsty I am? I am about to die of thirst! I need your water!” the Tiny Flower said.
“You’re asking for rain?”
“You mean, you’re happy to see me?”
“Happy? I’m thrilled! Now please give me a drink!”
“Coming right up!” RC let go of his rain, all of it, in one long WHOOSH.
“Thank you!” said Tiny Flower, “I feel so much better!”
“So do I,” said RC, “Happy Valentine’s Day.”
“Happy Valentine’s Day.”
