This week over at Carrot Ranch (www.carrotranch.com), the prompt was to write a story in 99 words (no more and no less) about a cat named Rainbow and being outdoors, and to go where the prompt sends you. This pedometer geek wrote the following story:
Aloysius: A Fairy Tale
Once upon a time there was a cat called Rainbow. He never understood why his humans picked that name because he had white fur. Snowball, maybe, although his name was Aloysius, which seemed like a sensible name to him. Aloysius was a stray wandering the countryside until one day when, after a downpour, a young girl found him shivering by the side of the road. Aloysius was soaked and the drops glistened on his fur. The sun began to shine and the refraction of the light broke into seven distinct colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.
