passing under the rainbow
postscript// passing under the rainbow.
“Let’s go, Freddie. I’ll walk with you to the railroad tracks.” the young boy looked at his classmate before nodding. The pale blue sky seemed to be clear that day after days of rain. They passed under a fading rainbow on mossy asphalt, mist collecting in their hair.
He looked at the bright eyed girl in front of him and took her hand. He had thought if like these could happen everyday, he would be able to ignore the rest of his troubles. He could ignore his brother, his family, the short minded ignorance of the city he lived and spend his time with her.
Even if their uniforms damped and they both fell sick, he’d still come to visit her.
He loved her.
She seemed like some daytime star, shining so brightly. His freckled face felt hot as the sun beamed down on them.
“Is you brother still bothering you? I don’t like seeing anything making you upset. Archie seems to have everything in the world and yet, he still wants something from you.” he laughed at her. The wind blew past and he lean closer as he takes her shoulder to lean on.“He can take everything from me for all I care. As long as he doesn’t take you away, I’m perfectly happy.”
