Friday Fictioneers : 10th April

Thanks to Rochelle, our wonderful hostess with the mostest for the Friday Fictioneers challenge.

This week’s photo is courtesy of Jeff Arnold.

It was an unusual sight, bright and dazzling, and appeared every evening for three consecutive days around the globe.
Almost a year later, prayers were answered and happy couples welcomed their newborns.
Some say it was the rainbow’s magic, others a blessing from the gods, but those from a world doomed in another galaxy knew their kind had a chance to thrive.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I can see how a three-day rainbow could put people in the mood for a little… “magic.” Nice sci-fi twist.
