Lost in Thoughts

104-05-may-10th-2015Note: This is 100% Fiction

Dear Diary,

It’s been a month since we moved into our new home. I’m beginning to settle in the boring life of suburbia. Meanwhile we are still eating out of paper plates. We haven’t had time to go shopping at all since it’s been stormy the last two weeks. My little brother, Sammy, had been skulking about the house, itching to go out. It’s really annoying.

Yesterday, as we were enjoying a movie, the entire house went dark. Like a crybaby, Sammy was screaming and whining. He’s afraid of the dark. Meanwhile, my dad was being macho and said the fuse’s probably blown. Obviously, it’s not.

All night, the rain banged on my bedroom window followed by lightning and thunder. It felt like it was shaking the whole house. The only way I could go to sleep was by wearing my sleeping mask and drowning my ears with music.

This morning, I was woken up by Sammy. He was excited for some reason. “What?” I snapped.

He pointed at the window, “Look!”

I couldn’t see much at first. “Oh my god,” I breathed and quickly snatched my camera on my desk. It’s so beautiful…

  1. Because I am away from blogging at the moment, I rarely comment on posts, I tend to read the post and click like or leave a smiley if there is no like button.

    This story though, you say it was 100% fiction. This photo was taken about 2 weeks after I moved into a new house (found out the woman was a twisted evil manipulative mastermind, but that’s besides the point hehe) and I was not into photography at this point, but when I looked out the window and saw the rainbow, my breath caught and I did grab the camera and bolt for the door.

    This story was almost spot on. Thank you for bringing a smile to my face

    • Wow, I must have a special 6th sense. 😀 This is actually the second story I’ve written where the comment is similar to yours. Honestly, I just wrote whatever’s top of my head. Thank you for reading. 🙂
