Beyond the Rain

To enter Vivian Kirkfield's 50 Precious Words Contest, you must write a complete story for kids 12 and under using ONLY 50 WORDS or less. What a fun challenge! You know, if you're a word nerd like me. (I see you, Wordle players!) And even if you're not one, I hope you enjoy reading my exactly 50-word entry below.

Beyond the Rain By Hollie Wolverton The sky was sad…

like me.

When the crying stopped, I wondered, “What now?”

I slipped on boots and slipped outside.

Water on the ground reflected a runny nose.

Wet lashes.

But a glimmer in the eyes.

So I jumped…

with both feet. Sending ripples through the puddle

and me.
