Bubbles – Five Sentence Fiction

2

 

It was that time of the year again, when the rain gods showed no mercy on the city.

Though the first few days had been warmer with just a few drizzles here and there, everyone knew that worst was yet to come; as was predicted.

Just when everyone thought it was a hoax, in the afternoon of 26th the rains showed off their torrential self, slowly and steadily filling the city with huge bubbles of water.

I kept waiting anxiously at the window to see him arrive; and suddenly when I spotted him wading through the deep water, I shrieked with joy, heaved a sigh of relief and sprinted into the kitchen to make him a hot cup of tea.

And since that day I shriek in my nightmares every day, since the time the vile news burst my bubble of happiness, for life.
