Playing with Words in May

In response to the Story A Day in MAy Challenge from Julie Duffy over at Story A Day

Lemon Sunshine by Lisa Combs

Rain fell in sheets. Lightening splintered the sky, thunder cracked and vibrated Midge’s teeth. She held MobyCat tighter than he cared for. Sensing her fear, he stayed. Storm drains flooded, water rushed up the driveway. The street became a lake.  Midge carried MobyCat to the kitchen and made a cup of tea.  She added lemon. The rain stopped, the clouds broke and the sun glistened through raindrops clinging to her windows.  Her fear subsided and MobyCat leaped from her arms to curl on his pillow in the kitchen rocking chair.
