Dylan Hughes is our host for the First Line Friday challenge.
Here are the rules and link to her original post
“It is First Line Friday! Welcome and let’s get writing.
Below, I give you the first line, and you all get to write the rest. This prompt alternates with Jim’s Music Prompts, so make sure to check back next Friday for some musical inspiration.
I’ll provide the first line, you get to write whatever comes afterward. Length, genre, and structure are completely up to you. Feel free to modify the line as you see fit, adding punctuation, quotes, or other bits if so desired. No need to tie it to the picture, unless you want to.
Or for more of a challenge, change nothing. You have a week to write it, enjoy!
Include the first line of course! Tag it Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, First Line Fridays, and short fiction. Create a link (ping-back) to this post and add your link to Mister Linky below.
Your line for this week is:
The splashing of pink rain boots announced her impending arrival.”

Tommy and Annie, twins deaf at birth, had developed their own special language years ago by stamping their feet. At first, their parents had thought it was tantrums, but as they watched each child’s reaction to the other, they realised it was a means of communication between them.
Today they were having fun in the rain, and the bigger the puddle the better. The new Nanny was OK, but they didn’t know how she would react so Tommy issued a warning and they were ready to cease their activities when she came outside.
The sound of three tone hysterical giggling had their father rushing to the window to see what was going on. Elizabeth, the new nanny, was also wearing pink wellies and jumping in the puddles with them.
Philip knew he’s made the right decision hiring her.
