Writing Prompt Friday (A Walk in the Rain)

A Walk in the Rain

Jeff looked outside and saw that it was raining, how he loved the rain. The gentle drops falling from the sky to clean the earth below, the smell and the sound of it gently hitting the roof. One thing he especially loved was taking a nice walk in the rain…he didn’t know what it was but it made him feel clean and new, so he grabbed his rain coat and umbrella and decided to take a little stroll.

As he walked out the door he took a deep breath and a smile came across his face…the song ‘Singing in the Rain’ just popped in his head and he laughed out loud. He started to hum the tune as he started his way down the street.

He was a happy man and people could tell, he made sure of it. He jumped in every puddle he saw, swung around a light pole and had the biggest smile on his face. One particular person took a particular interest in Jeff…her name was Sarah.

Sarah liked the rain as well and couldn’t help but giggle at Jeff as he was coming down the street. As he got closer Sarah started to sing ‘Singing in the Rain’ out loud as well and jumped in the nearest puddle. Jeff took notice of this and stopped, he had to meet this person who loved walking in the rain as much as him.

‘Hi there’, Jeff said. This took Sarah by surprise but she responded ‘Hi to you as well’, she had a big smile. ‘Would you like to walk and sing with me in the rain?’…Jeff asked. ‘Sure, that would be great’…Sarah responded.

So Jeff grabbed her hand and they started skipping and dancing through the rain and hitting every puddle along the way. Jeff asked if she would like to go to the park, they had a great trail and the sound of the rain on the leaves and watching the drops hit the pond were like Mother Nature’s own music. Sarah said she would love to.

Once they got to the park Jeff showed Sarah the pond as they walked the path holding hands the whole time. Once they were far enough down the trail Jeff asked her if she wanted to dance. Sarah nodded and they both put their umbrellas down and took their hats off and danced slow and close in the rain…both knew they had found the person for them.
