Love in the rain

“On hindsight, your idea of putting up umbrellas was a wiser decision,” Brian admitted good humoredly. Sarah smiled.

Brian had wanted to put up kites. But the decorating team had vetoed against. Good thing they did, though Brian had sulked for days on end.

Today, was the first day of the street festival and the floodgates of heaven had opened. Visitors caught in the unexpected rains were silently thanking the colourful umbrellas perched high up.

“I still have one left from the lot. Care for a coffee?” Sarah asked.

Under the yellow umbrella started a brand-new love story.

    That was a rain kissed, mushy, cute love story Anshu. Short and sweet.

    Heart warming – and a good practical use for the umbrellas as well 🙂

    Umbrellas do seem to play a big part in romance, mostly because they are technically too small to cover two people without cuddling, I suppose. Lovely take on the prompt.

  6. Dear Anshu,

    Sweet and romantic story. I enjoyed the read.

  12. Abhijit Ray says:

    Nice idea to set up umbrella to stop rain.

    I must steer clear of yellow umbrellas, one wife is enough 😉

  16. granonine says:

    She might be wise to go carefully, if he’s a guy who tends to sulk for days on end. Nothing very romantic about that.

  17. 4963andypop says:

    Very cheerful story. First rescue the festival, then start a romance. Theres so much an umbrella can do!

  18. subroto says:

    It’s good she didn’t tell him to go fly a kite. Sweet story.

  19. James McEwan says:

    Lovely, and under the yellow umbrella dreams came true.

  20. Aw, what a very sweet take on the prompt. Nicely done.

  21. Dahlia says:

    Good of Brian to admit his mistake even if belatedly! Nicely done Anshu 🙂
