Hunched over in her chair, eyes down, the curved handle of her cane within easy reach, Minnie prepares to shield herself against the shards of a shattered friendship.
Millie’s face is like a strawberry. Ruby red. Ripe with anger. Her quiet demeanor turns hurricane-and in its wake, $2000 worth of bills, and 60 years of amiable acquaintance rain down around the palm of Minnie’s outstretched hand. A rainbow colored storm.
Minnie is stunned. She’d only demanded what was owed to her. She finds that the novelty in owning a hotel on Boardwalk is gone.
This week's Trifecta one-word prompt is inspired by the recent arrival of the Hong Kong monsoons and the start of April in general.
rain (transitive verb)
1: to pour down
2: to give or administer abundantly <rained blows on his head>
3: to take a lot of money in bill form and toss it up in the air. This is most effectively done at a strip club for the effect of raining one dollar bills on the dancers (and it makes them feel so pretty), or to snub a hater by throwing money into their face that then falls to the floor like rain (use this when paying a debt to a punk bitch who keeps asking for their money to the point that they are ruining your friendship or when dumping someone who has been bankrolling you for a while now that you're making money).
