Day 1196: 5 Minute Freewrite: Friday - Prompt: the sky opens up


My ZAPFIC50 below is a short story told in exactly 50 words. Even though the project is on hold by, I still love to write them. It's a challenge to write a complete micro-story that is precisely 50 words. I based this 50-word story on @mariannewest's Freewrite prompt: The sky opens up. If you'd like to create a regular freewrite from the prompt, you can visit:

The snooze alarm alerted me that I was behind schedule. Dressing quickly, I grabbed a breakfast bar for the transit stop. Only two blocks away, I looked back at my umbrella and shook off the thought. It didn't take long to realize my mistake as the sky suddenly opened up.
