A Beginning at the End

Charli Mills gave us rainbows and cats and the outdoors as parts of this week’s 99-word Flash Fiction challenge.

Please consider participating at the Carrot Ranch.

Joni drew her knees up under her chin and closed her eyes. If only she had a friend with whom she could share moments like this. There was a gentle rain falling, but she was protected by the thick foliage of her favorite tree.

Outside was where Joni went to think and dream. Lately, she’d been dreaming of a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. So, she always tried to be under the tree during gentle rains.

She opened her eyes to see the sun shining, and walking out of the rainbow was a golden-haired cat.
