When It Rains…

by Miles H. Rost

“The rain’s sure coming down today,” Kimiko said, flatly.

“Yep. Haven’t seen a downpour like this since the 2004 Hiroshima Superstorm,” Yomi remarked, with no expression on her face.

They watched as Gina, one of their friends, joined them on the steps of the old shrine, under the cover of the ornate building.

“Alright, I got the bucket.”

Kimiko’s face did not change one bit.

“What’s with the spigot?”

“Well, we catch the water, and we take only what we need.”


“Did I overthink it too much?”


Gina sat down, the flat looks of the others slowly melding into her own face.

And they sat there for the entire day, watching their rain bucket fill up.
