I wake to small warm drops on my face. A splash on my eyelids has me wiping away what feels like a tear. But tears were for yesterday. Today is for survival. My eyes crack open to a brilliant rainbow light coming thru the mist. I squint and try to remember what exactly happened last night.
My arms push my body up. That is when I notice the bruise on my leg. Dang it. So it is true. I’m marooned. On an island. Alone. In the middle of nowhere. And all because of one little lie.
There’s a rustle in the palms and a rhythm that sounds like footsteps. With great pain, I bend my leg and scoot behind a large bush doubtful it can hide me. Whatever it is, its getting closer. Maybe I’m not alone after all.
Thunder rumbled in the distance as I ran across the field. The clouds rolled over head as I ran faster. I always loved to race the rain. The thunder was like our gunshot letting me know the race had begun; the long grass brushed against my legs as I barreled past. My calloused feet pounding on the dry I earth. I could hear the rain coming fast from behind me, a loud, overwhelming whooshing sound, that seemed to come from everywhere and meant no escape. l saw my small home in the distance and laughed to myself.
“The rain always won,” I thought as it finally caught up to me, instantly drenching me. Slipping in the fresh mud I fell onto the ground and laughed again.

One thought on “Prompt: Warm Rain”
Sent in by an awesome teen writer named “EL”
I step out of my house, breathing in the dense, humid air. I look up at the sky impatiently, waiting for the first few raindrops of the year. A droplet hits my cheek, a wide smile spreading across my face. I run through the street as more follow, the cracked streets quickly flooding. The laughs
of children surround me, adults sighing in relief, fresh water. This is my favorite time of the year, when there is nothing to worry about, where all you have to do is run around and play in the warm rain, jumping in puddles and making a mess. If this day never came I don’t think I’d survive the rest of the year.
