“Ah, God’s promise,” Juan said, looking at the rainbow. “That storm was a bad one but it’s finally moved on.”
No response from his partner down in the living quarters.
The marina was coming back to life around him. He stretched and smiled and checked the boat for damage. Not too bad. A few days work and she’d be ready to go.
The storm had disrupted their plans for a quick trip down to St. Lucia. Couldn’t count on the weather anymore.
“We can take off by Friday,” he said.
“Another storm coming,” his partner called up. “A bigger one.”

  1. Ugh. At least they got warned ahead of time and are now in a safe harbor.

  2. When it rains, it pours, eh?

  3. these days if you want to get a promise you need a double rainbow.

  4. Well that blows!

  5. Aw, what a let-down! But–it happens, and life goes on.

  6. The setting is really well-described. And that last line — very tense!
