An exact drabble (100 words) for #writingwednesday.
The rain didn’t come on Monday. He filled the watering can and watered the flowers, herbs, and vegetables.
The rain didn’t come on Tuesday. After watering, he filled up the bird bath. A sparrow soon came for a tiny sip.
The rain didn’t come on Wednesday. The south-easterly wind pushed the clouds away, leaving only sweltering heat. The grass was turning brown, and even the hardy wildflowers in the wild corner of the garden were beginning to wilt.
The rain came on Friday, finally, just as he began filling the watering can.
He laughed and let the rain water him.
